Comments02/02/2017 #24 Gerald Hecht#22 @Ian Weinberg It breaks the spirit; now, on most days, I only find solace in the "construct" of endurance --wherever it may be trying to hide.
Yesterday, it was in such an unexpected place...didn't catch a glimpse of its monocular tapetum reflection (from within it's novel selection of a lair/sanctuary) until close to midnight:

It did not happen in a private company however.
It happened in a public (state) University (the supposed "essence" of whatever remains of the Construct of "THE ACADEMY")...
...and this -- no ordinary public University.
The Oldest Historically Black College and University (HBCU) System in the United States of America!02/02/2017 #20 Harvey Lloyd#19 I can't imagine that institutions are not in somewhat of the same competitive pickle most private corporations deal with. ALthough SUBR certainly created a mess from what could have been something different, the stressors are the same in corporate America.
The good times lead to growth of not just revenues but burn rates also. WHen the music stops the burn rate is hard to adjust when considering hard and soft costs.
Do you make survival decisions or do you ride out hope and bet the farm? No easy decisions. Macy's has been a great example of what downsizing looks like and they have gotten all wrong also. A public relations nightmare, earlier on.
I guess the question is are tenured professors protected from economic disruption? They should be protected from bad management.02/02/2017 #19 Gerald Hecht#18 @Harvey Lloyd yes; specifically, when I wrote this --it was a meditation on this:
Although, it's relevance has scaled both up and out ...tremendously of late!01/02/2017 #18 Harvey LloydFirst off the history was great, a little over my pay grade. But towards the end you were discussing the facts of all points of view can be afforded the student due to tenure. Would you not theorize that a larger percentage of students exit more left leaning? If it were balanced would they be more central to the middle?
Lacking any data to even ask the questions is a given. But if we could venture into opinion i would like to hear yours.

Comments04/07/2016 #4 Qamar Ali KhanExcellent share Falvio! Very informative! Medical science is the most obscure area about itself. There are a number of long-practiced theories that are changed and are getting changed, costing millions of precious human lives. It must be remembered that nature is the diagnose and nature is the cure. It's mandatory that the medical science researcher should spend their time and resources to study the nature and natural process in detail to know all the internal processes of a human body. The present medical science is a huge failure, as the number of diseases and their intensity are increasing with every passing day. The current treatments are mostly focused on to control and suppress a disease. not to cure and eliminate it. This treatment horribly destroys the other body systems, resulting in more diseases to attack the body, and making all the things more complicated and worse.

Comments02/07/2016 #1 AnonymousIn this paper,we present a model for structural integrity analysis of boiler tubes made of plain carbon steel exposed to a local corrosion process and multiple hydrogen assisted degradation processes. The proposed model is practical for use in predictive maintenance for power plants.
