Harvard University exemplifies everything that is wrong with the American educational system, and represents the epicenter of a self-serving centralized power structure. ... today, the same people who control education at Harvard also dominate Wall Street, write the nation's laws, and operate global behemoths like Monsanto. They are a singular cohesive community who funnel vast sums of money to themselves, draft self-serving policies, control judicial appointments, own the media, grant taxpayer monies to non-profits, while creating monopolies from tax cuts, bailouts and venture funding. They do all this and work with intelligence agencies that illegally surveillance innocent Americans. To add insult to injury, Harvard faculty generate propaganda -- academic, "peer-reviewed" papers --- that claim their method of running the world is the best, while trampling our political and free speech rights.

Female Uber drivers make 7% less per hour than their male counterparts -- even though the algorithms that determine pay for the ride-hailing service are gender blind, according to a multi-year study. The study, led by economists, examined data from more than 1.8 million drivers and 740 million Uber trips in the United States between January 2015 and March 2017. ... About half of the earnings gap is explained by differences in driving speed, according to Uber. The researchers found that, on average, men drive 2.2% faster than women. The researchers noted that there is a positive expected return to driving faster. However they also note returns may turn negative at excessive speeds. read more
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown: -- It's time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump. It's not going to be easy, given his policies and personality. It might even mean checking into a 12-step program. But setting a winning agenda is like maneuvering an aircraft carrier. It takes time to change course. And if they want to be on target for the November midterm elections, the Democrats need to start changing course now.Like it or not, a significant number of Americans are actually happy these days. They are making money. They feel safe, and they agree with with the president's protectionist trade policies, his call for more American jobs, even his immigration stance.The jobs growth reports, the North Korea summit and the steady economy are beating out the Stormy Daniels scandal and the Robert Mueller investigation in Middle America, hands down. So you are not going to win back the House by making it all about him. read more
