"Because, explains Silicon Valley guru and New York University marketing academic Scott Galloway, content is irrelevant. It’s “not education. It’s credentialing”."

“Casualisation means your law tutor or biomed lecturer, who’s spent perhaps 10 years earning a doctorate, is appointed for 10 or 13 weeks at a time, usually with just a few days’ notice. They get maybe $120 to deliver a lecture that could take three or four days to prepare. They receive half the super payments of proper staff, no holiday or sick pay. And if, for any reason, enrolment falls the course is summarily axed. No new shoes this semester, kiddies.”

The Welsh Not (also Welsh Knot, Welsh Note, Welsh Stick, Welsh Lead or Cwstom) was an item used in Welsh schools in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries to stigmatise and punish children using the Welsh language.

Typically The Not was a piece of wood, a ruler or a stick, often inscribed with the letters "WN". This was given to the first pupil to be heard speaking Welsh. When another child was heard using Welsh, The Not was taken from its current holder and given to the latest offender. The pupil in possession at the end of the day was subjected to corporal punishment or other penalty.

About 17 miles from Mount Rushmore, a monument to a Native American hero is finally coming into view.

The mountainside sculpture of Crazy Horse, regarded as one of the most iconic Native Americans of all time, will be even larger than those of the four U.S. presidents at Mount Rushmore.

The monument has been under construction for 70 years and could take another century to complete.

Džordan Piterson u Beogradu na lečenju: "Zavisnost od lekova je strašno iskustvo"
Kontroverzni profesor psihologije Džordan Piterson, autor bestselera "12 pravila za život", nalazi se u Beogradu i u glavnom gradu Srbije provešće nekoliko narednih meseci.

"Morao je na hitno lečenje u Rusiju, nakon nekoliko neuspešnih pokušaja da prevaziđe opasnu zavisnost od vrlo jakog leka protiv anksioznosti. Morao je da provede četiri nedelje na odeljenju urgentnog centra u vrlo teškom stanju, ali je uz pomoć izuzetno kompetetnih i hrabrih lekara preživeo. Neizvesnost oko njegovog oporavka bilo je jedno od najtežih i najstrašnijih iskustava koje smo imali", rekla je tada Mihaila Piterson.

"Uspeo je da se oporavi u Moskvi, pa smo otišli na Floridu. Tamo nas je dočekala pandemija koronavirusa, ali smo tamo saznali i za jednu kliniku u Beogradu", priča Mihaila za Nedeljnik.

Coronavirus: Dexamethasone proves first life-saving drug

The low-dose steroid treatment dexamethasone is a major breakthrough in the fight against the deadly virus, UK experts say.

The drug is part of the world's biggest trial testing existing treatments to see if they also work for coronavirus.

It cut the risk of death by a third for patients on ventilators. For those on oxygen, it cut deaths by a fifth.

Had the drug had been used to treat patients in the UK from the start of the pandemic, up to 5,000 lives could have been saved, researchers say.

Coronavirus: Human trial of new vaccine begins in UK

Volunteers have begun being immunised with a new UK coronavirus vaccine.

About 300 people will have the vaccine over the coming weeks, as part of a trial led by Prof Robin Shattock and his colleagues, at Imperial College London.

Tests in animals suggest the vaccine is safe and triggers an effective immune response.

Pozivajući se na diplomatske izvore, RTS je javio da Holandija, Belgija, Danska, Švedska, Finska, Nemačka i Bugarska nisu dale zeleno svetlo za otvaranje Poglavlja 2, pozivajući se na nedostatke i kašnjenja u reformama vladavine prava, i na nedavni izveštaj Evropske komisije o ovoj oblasti.

Ova odluka znači da Srbija prvi put od početka pregovora o članstvu neće otvoriti nijedno pregovaračko poglavlje tokom jednog šestomesečnog predsedavanja EU.

Sharena laza. Pogledajte sta se radi u Bugarskoj, EU standardi, vladavina prava samo takva. Pistolj uz celo pa potpisuj da se odrices imovine sve u suorganizaciji drzavnih institucija. 

Ko veruje da bi Srbiji svanulo u EU se grdno vara, to bi samo ubrzalo odliv stanovnistva.

Odliv je loš za državu, ali nije loš za one koji se odliju... Mislim da je svakako bolje omogućiti ljudima da žive gde hoće, pa neka sami biraju.

Sa tim se slazem. To bi verovatno bila i jedina jako pozitivna stvar u celoj prici. Sve ostalo bi ostalo manje-vise isto, nesto malo bolje, nesto cak i gore. Samo sto se postavlja pitanje da li ce Srbija uopste ikada uci u EU i da li ce EU uopste i opstati kao takva.

Stoji da je Bugarska daleko od EU proseka što se tiče stepena korupcije i vladavine prava i koječega, i još uvek je pod "prismotrom" Brisela po mnogim pitanjima iako je EU članica jako dugo, ali živeti u Srbiji danas i smejati se Bugarima po bilo kom osnovu je apsurdno.

Činjenica je da čak i takvi kakvi su imaju izuzetne ekonomske koristi od bivanja u EU i što se tiče vladavine prava i modernih zakona, tu su za red veličine bolji od Srbije i to je fakat. Daleko od toga da su ekonomski razvijeni, tu su negde kao mi, ali postoji par privrednih grana (turizam i IT pre svega) koje su za red veličine razvijenije od nas i recimo provereno znam da su plate u IT sektoru u proseku 50% veće nego kod nas za identične pozicije. Tu dolazi i nesmetani pristup EU tržištu što čini troškove poslovanja u većini grana industrije mnogo lakšim i jeftinijim nego kod nas, čime god da se baviš. "Sitnica" koja se jako često zaboravlja kad kod nas krene da se priča o EU članstvu.

Imam dosta drugara u Bugarskoj i povremeno sam tamo i vrlo dobro znam situaciju na terenu. Nažalost, naši ljudi jako slabo interaguju sa Bugarskom i Bugarima i još uvek živi staro dobro uvreženo mišljenje da su oni, ono, dno dna a da smo mi ono, kao, "vrh brate".

Up to three million Hong Kong residents are to be offered the chance to settle in the UK and ultimately apply for citizenship, Boris Johnson has said.

The PM said Hong Kong's freedoms were being violated by a new security law and those affected would be offered a "route" out of the former UK colony.

About 350,000 UK passport holders, and 2.6 million others eligible, will be able to come to the UK for five years.

And after a further year, they will be able to apply for citizenship.

Kolega Igor Smolić je nedavno, koristeći se sličnom matematikom, pokazao da se rezultati o broju zvaničnih smrti od COVID-19 po danu ne poklapaju sa očekivanim distribucijama iz matematičkih modela.

Poređenjem sa podacima iz ostalih zemalja u svetu koje su imala sličan broj prijavljenih smrtnih dogadjaja tokom istog perioda posmatranja pokazali smo da Srbija jedina odstupa.

Lebanon’s catastrophic economic collapse is gathering pace, with its currency shedding value daily, prices of essential foods out of the reach of many and talks that could unlock a desperately needed bailout crippled by what critics say is a determination by the ruling class to protect a broken system.
