• Who thinks Walden University is a Diploma Mill?

    In the old days it was easy to spot a diploma mill. All you had to do was to find out if they were accredited or not. Now every business organization that wants to make a buck is starting a "University".

    In the old days it was easy to spot a diploma mill. All you had to do was to find out if they were accredited or not. Now every business organization that wants to make a buck is starting a "University". They get a bunch of professors from other schools, come up with a bs curriculum, and sell it to students who had poor grades in high school or undergrad. They don't ask for a SAT or GRE. Walden University seems to be one of those schools. The classes are completely canned and ridiculously easy. Students were taking 4+ classes a semester until the school received bad press and stopped the practice. Now their students just sit through classes, doing the minimum amount of work (mostly taken from previous online postings), and get a degree in half the time of a regular school. Sure it's not like the "send your check and receive a degree in 30 days" schools, but it's close. Has anyone else gone there and what did you think?

  • Does the guy on the bottom get off?

    Sorry for the really rude question, but I'm not gay and was curious what was in it for the receiver? Is it a take turns kind of thing, or can a guy on the bottom actually get off?

  • How does the actual incidence of a government expenditure program differ from the legislated intent?

    In what ways may the actual incidence of a government expenditure program differ from the legislated intent? Why are the effects different in the short-run and different in the long-run?

    In what ways may the actual incidence of a government expenditure program differ from the legislated intent? Why are the effects different in the short-run and different in the long-run? What examples can I use to show the effects of government farm programs. How can I explain how the short-run and long-run effects of a regulatory program, such as rent control, may differ? I'm totally lost on this and need some intelligent, attractive, wonderful person to lend a hand. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    My friend was driving home yesterday and her transmission just went from first into neutral while accelerating from a light a block or so away from her house. She can put it into park and it is in park, but all of the rest is just a neutral gear. It's a 1989 Nissan Maxima with about 120K miles (it ran extremely well up until this point) with an automatic transmission. Any ideas before we tow it off to the repair shop? She just wants to make sure that the shop is being honest with her.

    Suppose you are an administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency. It has been reported that a plant in a small town is in violation of the environmental laws. If you enforce the laws’ requirements, the plant will be forced to shut down. The plant is the major source of employment for the town, and its closure would impose severe economic hardships. Should that fact play a role in regulatory enforcement? Please help. I've read through my textbook and looked on the internet in all of the places I can think of and can't come up with any decent answer.

    I have a young daughter who my wife and I have had lots of heart to heart talks with about her coming of age, but who has also been using Trilian to talk through AOL's AIM to chat with another female friend of hers who is a bit on the indecent side and I would like to monitor her chats just to be on the sure that she’s not being led somewhere by this new friend. I know it's a bit Big Brother, but my wife and I have decided that this time it really is for the best. Besides, we know exactly what will happen if we try to keep her from talking to this girl. Sooooo, is there a chat monitor that runs hidden in the background that someone can recommend?
