    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Harvard Plunges Into Samsung Circle Of Hell As Record 125 Undergrads Probed For Plagiarism

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Think massive intellectual CTRL-C -> CTRL-V'ing occurs only in the highly rarefied air of smartphonism? Think again (via Bloomberg):

  • HARVARD PLAGIARISM PROBE UNDER WAY FOR ABOUT 125 CLASSMATES
  • STUDENTS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR COPYING ON FINAL EXAM
  • THOSE FOUND TO HAVE PLAGIARIZED MAY FACE 1-YEAR WITHDRAWAL
  • MOST WIDESPREAD CHEATING SCANDAL IN LIVING MEMORY

We are confident that as soon as said 125 classmates threaten to take down the "highly intellectual" world with them and expose all the other plagiarists if they go down, there will be a congressional hearing on the matter asap. Perhaps it is time for Harvard to change its motto from Veritas to Copytas?

 

From Bloomberg:

Most widespread cheating scandal in living memory, college officials said today.

 

All the students, who were in a course with more than 250 enrolled, will face hearings before Harvard ’s Administrative Board, Jay Harris, dean of undergraduate education at the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based school, said today in an interview

 

Finally, is it Crimson, or Crime-son? Or do the entitled not care to know the difference?

American colleges :

Professors and researchers like Michael Mann building junk science and bogus findings in order to fabricate proof for climate change : perfectly acceptable.

Students copying on their final exam probably because what they were thaught is totally irrelevant and fabricated : now that's unacceptable.

Dude, you screwed that up .... it's

"The strength of the Classroom lies in it's weakest link"   All children have been left behind, and most of their parents as well.  Just what do you think "public school's" modus operendi is?  Why do you suppose they create these absolutely moronic titles for "communist agenda" crap?  How do you go from #1 to something like #30 worldwide in education?

Duh?

Just what do you think "public school's" modus operendi is? 

I've got a simple theory at the MO; it follows the adage that "a fool and his money are soon parted"

The problem with the fool is that he then doesn't have any more money....

  So he is given some of MY money through welfare\EBT\etc. so he can go spend it at Walmart for some GMO crap pesticide ridden "food" and imported Chinese plastic trinkets sold to him by the Multi-Nationals.  They now have a constant stream of fools with other people's money....

The Public (and also private) Education systems are there to make sure there is a constant stream of Fools flowing in to the system.

These fools are made to order: Submissive to Authority, incapable of individual decision making or critical thinking and easily swayed by advertising

 

I'm all for a social safety net but every institution that could possibly do any good has been co-opted for other uses.  THAT is why nothing in America works as it should....

  As Joker put it: It's all part of the plan....

That's definitely bullshit.  This stuff has been going on for quite a while.  This is only the shit that gets reported .... if your daddy has enough bucks, then you're safe.  Evidently they're on a bit of a witch hunt .... and they're out to punish a few harvtards.  At this rate, a couple of these Harvtards will grab some guns and go on a rampage ... just watch.

That's the whole thing in a nutshell. I never understood the prestige of a University that produced so many incompetent sociopaths that end up in government lording over the rest of us. They can't balance the most basic budget, misappropriate money all the time, and have no respect for the nation they pretend to serve.

What's so great about Harvard?  Their graduates are driving this country into a ditch. Bawney Fwangth is a communist. Elena Kagan never spent a day in court and now she's a "Supreme."  Of what? Good connections? Because for sure it's not her brains. Our current Prez was there ( or so they say) and was editor of the HLR but we've never seen a sample of his writing. I'd say Harvard is a good place for a poor education and a designer diploma.

As someone who has grown up in Cambridge MA, I feel particularly qualified to say that that people who go to Harvard generally (though certainly not always) suck.
