Remember When a Safety Record Meant Something… Like Saving Lives!

Remember When An Achievement was Touted and Displayed Proudly

Things you learned in primary school:

Stars Charts and Chore Charts Reward Children for Good Behavior, Learning New Skills, Meeting Goals was an ‘atta’ boy or ‘atta’ girl for daily and long-term self-assessments or for when Mom and Dad viewed on Parent/Teacher Night.

*Clearly similar to daily performance on the job with occasional interaction with superiors*

Then I thought I’d look for an example of a report card. However, I found myself at the National Assessment of Educational Progress The Nation’s Report Card Learner Outcomes (I personally prefer the term students or pupils, consider me old-fashioned, and achievements or scores). I am horrified to see even just this “one report card” that literally has no real stats. Who just threw a bunch of numbers out to see if they would stick? (This example must be for Hard-Core Liberals as it is meaningless)
Case of Adults performing badly!

*Report cards are clearly similar to an overall performance evaluation indicative of a raise or promotion to advance within the employer’s facility*

Kids in school know consequences for bending the rules.

Adults do not seem to have a clue what may result for bending the rules:

Did Marshall University Research Corporation Make a Stimulus Quote Mistake?

I just can’t seem to tear myself away from stimuluswatch.org as there never appears to be any progress. Case in point ~ Marshall University Research Corporation:

University Communications – Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, September 03, 2009
Contact: Ginny Painter, Communications Director, Marshall University Research Corporation 304-746-1964


Marshall research community to benefit from $2.6 million federal stimulus award to state

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University researchers and students will benefit from a $2.6 million National Science Foundation grant to the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.

The cyberinfrastructure award, which was announced earlier this week by U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller and West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, will assist with scientific discovery by building capacity and promoting the use of high-performance computing cluster resources at Marshall University, West Virginia University and West Virginia State University.

More than $1 million of the grant funds will be used at Marshall over the next three years to help upgrade computing networks and enhance immersive visualization capabilities.

Dr. Tony Szwilski, professor of engineering and director of the university’s Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences, will coordinate the project on Marshall’s campus. Other members of the Marshall community who are involved include Dr. Jan Fox, senior vice president for information technology and chief information officer; Joseph Fuller, associate professor of  computer science; Dr. Venkat Gudivada, professor of  computer science; and Dr. Jack Smith, visualization manager.

According to Dr. John Maher, vice president for research and executive director of the Marshall University Research Corporation, the grant will be used to establish advanced high-performance computing and visualization resources at Marshall and to assist with connection to other high-performance computing systems and resources around the world, allowing faculty researchers – and their students – to collaborate in real time without geographic limitations.

“Engineering and scientific research today require computing infrastructure that will allow faculty to work with very large data sets and complex computational systems. This project will give our researchers tools to make them more competitive for outside funding, and will allow them to work with colleagues across the country and around the world,” said Maher. “We are pleased to be part of this collaborative.”

Fox added that the computerized visualization capabilities provided through the grant will help faculty communicate and explore both abstract and concrete ideas in health care and scientific and engineering research.

By providing computing power that was, until recently, available only to the most prestigious research institutions, this project will assist Marshall’s growing research community in its quest to address problems that require the minds and resources of a global, collaborative community,” she said. “From the development of approaches to real-time, image-guided surgery to the provision of a platform for management of communities, emergencies and other complex processes, the capabilities provided by this funding will have a long-term, positive impact on our community, state and nation.”

In addition to the research equipment that will be provided through the grant, the project will help develop a work force that can create and sustain cyber-based systems, tools and services. A network of faculty and information technology professional staff will be developed at Marshall to help researchers expand the use of high-performance computing and advanced visualization in their work, as well as to provide expertise on the operational and technical aspects of using supercomputing resources.

“Cyberinfrastructure includes computational systems, data and information management, visualization environments and people – all linked together by collaborative software and advanced networks,” said Szwilski. “These significant resources will be a catalyst at Marshall for technology innovation and economic development.”

He added that complementary outreach activities will be undertaken at the high school, undergraduate and graduate levels to help teach students computational science and visualization skills, also with the goal of developing a high-tech work force.

The award was funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. For more information, contact Szwilski at szwilski@marshall.edu.

Impeachment of Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama – Open Request to our Elected Officials

Now is the time for all good men and women, citizens of these United States of America, to request our elected members and officials of the 111th Congress to intercede on our behalf. We the People, need all of the U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives to unite and fulfill their destiny. We have an Usurper in the Office of the President, who appears to be derelict in his prescribed duties and the Oath of Office; as he undermines the U.S. Constitution. Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, has caused by neglect, intentionally or irrationally, intense harm, death and injury to citizens in the United States of America, abroad in our Military, and he further jeopardizes the very foundations of our Republic. He has permitted destruction of the United States Coastline, in the Gulf of Mexico; and, loss to countless wildlife. He has subjected the people to noxious and hazardous living conditions by purposeful neglect of any offered assistance from other countries, just for the sake of his own ego and monetary gain.The process of Impeachment upon Barack Obama must occur immediately for the protection of the citizens and the defense the US Constitution and the security of the United States of America as he is “holding a wild card” purposefully so as to cause havoc upon our families and friends who have fought for their own freedom and learned how to be citizens and not stolen that right. God Bless the USA.

Criminal Investigation of BP Staged Oil Spill Vital

TheAlexJonesChannel | June 21, 2010 | 10 minutes

http://www.prisonplanet.com/states-ne…
States Need To Launch Criminal Investigation Into BP, Federal Government’s Role In Oil Spill

Following the rise of sufficient indicators that BP knew about the conditions of its Gulf oil assets prior to the April 20 leak & explosion 62 long days ago and counting, Alex Jones has called for criminal investigations of key figures at BP, inside the White House administration and elsewhere. Further, Alex has urged activists and concerned citizens everywhere to take a proactive approach to dealing with the looming consequences of the massive oil leak.

He suggests calling on Governors and State Legislators in the Gulf Region to assert 10th Amendment rights– refute the Federal Government’s inaction, and institute measures to resolve the situation as best as can be.

In addition, Alex alerts awakened people everywhere to the renewed efforts by President Obama and certain allies, to ram through Carbon Taxes and other Climate Change measures via stealth, and using the crisis of the BP Oil Spill to justify such fascist policies– when the Obama Administration’s bewildered response (much like the Bush Administration’s delayed response at Katrina) exacerbated the scale and depth of the crisis BP may have let happen.
