2012-05-24 10:17:00
Since then, the College Bubble hypothesis has slowly gained acceptance. I wrote a number of pieces on the topic here starting in 2010 and most recently focusing particularly on seminaries. The Center for College Affordability is a think tank which …Read more »

NYT Brian Stelter: 'Bill O'Reilly advises me to enroll at Northwestern Uni
2012-04-04 13:34:00
Bill O'Reilly says "enough's enough" with NYT "meeedia reporter" Brian Stelter.  O'Reilly Tuesday night after Stelter ran this story April 1:  "He's a very liberal guy who allows his ideology to bleed into his reporting. He wrote that Rush Limbaugh is quote 'weakened' and  'The Radio Factor' was a failure.  So how is Limbaugh weakened as Stelter points to some defecting sponsors.  That happens all the time in radio.  Limbaugh remains number one in the nation by a huge margin.   And we asked Stelter who exactly is saying The Radio Factor was a failure?  He says media analysts.  Okay, which ones?  No reply.  The facts:  when I retired from radio talk in 2009 The Factor had more than 400 stations and grossed many milions of dollars.  it was among the most profitable radio programs in the country and I was offered millions to keep doing it.  So here's some advice for Brian Stelter.

AP - New York Times correspondent Anthony Shadid, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner whose dispatches captured untold stories from Baghdad under "shock and awe" bombing to Libya wracked by civil war, has died of an apparent asthma attack in Syria while reporting on the uprising against its president.

The New York Times recently ran an Op-Doc story on the dangers of texting while walking. Along with the alarming stats (1000 pedestrians in the ER in 2008) is a short PSA film by Casey Neistat that visually breaks down the act and all its levels of offense. Take heed!

Just last month, communications giant, Verizon, signed a $3.6 billion dollar deal with "competitors" Comcast, Time Warner, and Bright House Networks. Experts argue that the alliance unofficially spells out the end of the United States' Telecom Act of 1996--a congressional bill that promised consumers fair and competitive tele-communications services. And now a second part of that multi-billion dollar deal is speculated to draw out how each company will actually stay out of one another's way and possibly sell each other's services to overlapping customers--in other words, a cleverly disguised monopoly, as the New York Times reports:
Lessons for Europe From America?s First Great Depression: Echoes ? Bloomber

The European Union is in trouble. Some governments are teetering on default, and even German creditworthiness is questioned. Interbank lending in the euro area is increasingly strained. The entire project of European economic integration, wrought through six decades of delicate negotiation, seems at risk of collapse. In the U.S., meanwhile, European leaders are being criticized ...

In an effort to draw attention to its environmental cause, outdoorsman brand, Patagonia, recently bought a full-page ad in the New York Times to tell readers to "not buy their jacket." The clever marketing approach is connected to the Common Threads Initiative which advocates conscious consumption to reduce carbon footprints. Some argue that the campaign is a bit too ironic (and costly) to promote altruism over consumerism, but we must admit that, unwarranted or not, the ad has certainly captured the attention of many.

A recent New York Times article highlights a very fascinating and intriguing movement that's sweeping the globe--unrest. Yes, we've seen it everywhere this year, from the Twitter-induced revolution in Libya, to the riots in London, to the more recent Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City. According to the article, more young people than ever before are outraged with politics and government corruption, and letting it be known! A big factor, the article also explains, has a lot to do with the leaderless Web culture that is so prominent among many of these young rebels. The resources available via the Internet have created almost perfect storm conditions for worldwide upheaval.
Guru?s Partisans Banned From Editing Of Wiki ?Sathya Sai Baba? Entry
2011-01-24 00:39:00
Like 'democracy' itself, the Wikipedia online encyclopedia can be a great idea. Against large odds, it has just reached its first decade of existence. Wiki is meant to be a vast knowledge base on almost an infinity of topics. Servers worldwide ensure that it is kept secure and online, and that anyone from anywhere, given that one is equipped with a computer and an internet account, can contribute. That is to say - supposedly - provided they adhere to certain laid-down guidelines and methods. There is also a system of arbitrators - dotted (some would say, far too sparsely dotted) round the world - who can assist contributors who fall into difficulty or dispute. The theory is that errors are wide open to be corrected by the original contributor or other users, if not at once then over time. Prima facie, what can be more 'democratic' than all this? The Wiki catch-cry is: anyone can edit. However, what suppose many cannot edit for nuts?! Alike, many lay and academic contributor...

Ivete Sangalo: New York Times vê dificuldades na carreira internacional
2010-09-06 18:27:00
Ivete Sangalo foi, com razão e previsivelmente, alvo de oba-oba e críticas positivas graças ao sucesso do show que a diva baiana fez no Madison Square Garden. Com a imparcialidade que só um jornal estrangeiro teria, o The New York Times publicou uma matéria sobre o show. Leia o original em Inglês aqui. Segundo o jornalista Jon Pareles, o show foi um sucesso, energético e Ivete Sangalo é “incansável no palco”. Porém, dois problemas podem impedir a carreira internacional: um é a língua. O Português não é um idioma de fácil assimilação entre os povos anglo-saxões, que, no frigir dos ovos, são os principais consumidores de cultura pop mundial. O outro, surpreendentemente, é o ritmo acelerado de seus sucessos, que de acordo com o repórter, “poucos fora do Brasil conseguem assimilar”. Ivete Sangalo pode não ter, na visão do jornal, uma carreira internacional como a de Shakira, mas a matéria foi muito justa ao “espírito de diva” dela ao mencionar o que ...
Roger Lowenstein takes Mr. Media to 'The End of Wall Street'
2010-04-22 22:15:00
By BOB ANDELMAN The sky is falling! The sky is falling! What?s that? The sky has already fallen? Damn, I hate being late to the party. Apparently, it?s old news that the world financial system was on the edge of collapse over the course of recent years and those fat, rich bastards on Wall Street?and President Obama?s right, it is fun to hate on them?nearly sent us all into oblivion. But what you may not know is who and what brought this mess upon us. That?s where financial journalist Roger Lowenstein fits in. Lowenstein?s new book, The End of Wall Street?which entered the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists at #1 upon publication?is a perfectly timed dissection of what happened and who?s to blame. Lowenstein even starts the book with a handy roster of the play?s characters so it?s easy to keep track of the villains. And his timing on this show is perfect, since less than an hour ago, Obama was at Cooper Union in Manhattan, addressing the titans of W...

Roman Catholics? Deep Concern At Pope?s Apology. But He Is Way Ahead Of Ind

It is enormously instructive to watch the unfolding saga of papal apology for clergy sexual abuse. Large numbers of both Roman Catholics and others round the world have expressed deep dissatisfaction with the Pope's apology. They say that it goes nowhere far enough, and does not address acute issues of crime and punishment.
Fundies Criticize the New York Times
2010-01-27 23:34:00
Ok, I realize that my title probably states the obvious...but I just couldn't pass up this one. It seems that some of those lovable little wingnuts over at Americans for Truth are wondering why the Times is denouncing the Ugandan policies regarding homosexuality. Specifically, they are asking what gives the United States the right to lecture another country on its policies.Whatever your stance, homosexuality isn't the bigger issue in this article...even if Peter LaBarbera and his cronies would like for you to think otherwise. No, the bigger question is, does the United States have the right to lecture? Think about it before you answer...think about the wars we're fighting, the leaders we've promoted, the POLICIES we've supported or denounced in the past. I'm not proposing an answer one way or the other, but I find it ironic that some of the biggest "Bush-backers" have the audacity to gripe about the US lecturing other countries. It just seems to me that the Fundies are al...

El New York Times estudia volver a cerrar su web sólo a suscriptores
2009-07-10 11:02:00
El New York Times, el diario más seguido en Internet, ha hecho saber a los suscriptores de su edición en papel que están estudiando volver a convertir su página web en un medio de pago sólo accesible a quienes abonen una tasa mensual de 5 dólares. Asimismo, les han solicitado su opinión al respecto para saber si estarían dispuestos a aceptar este modelo, abandonado años atrás. Este movimiento, discutible como pocos, responde a la difícil situación económica que atraviesa el grupo, que el año pasado perdió 57,8 millones de dólares y que ha visto cómo sus acciones bajaban un 35% en lo que llevamos de 2009. Hace unos meses se vieron obligados a vender parte de sus activos inmobiliarios y en marzo llegaron a un acuerdo con el comité de empresa para rebajar un 5% el sueldo de la mayoría de sus empleados. No ha ayudado, desde luego, el hundimiento de la inversión publicitaria en Internet que ha traído la crisis económica que afecta a gran parte del mundo. Los ingre...

It took threats from Hillary Clinton to cut off aid and signals that the Pakistani military might take over the government, but President Asif Ali Zardari finally gave in to mass protests and acceded to opposition leader Nawaz Sharif's demands. A dispute over judges had put the country on the brink of anarchy, with Zardari cracking down on dissent and placing Sharif under house arrest while protesters prepared for a mass march that threatened to topple the government.Read it at The New York Times
