Overnight Open Thread (30 Aug 2013)

Obama's impotent 'sham across the bow'. Not only have the leaks weakened the value of any strike now, but telling your enemy that you're only going to launch a few missiles and then hit the links won't do any good. Top. Men.

This administration already has had a habit of spilling the classified beans for political gain, on drone "kill lists" and cyberwarfare against Iran for instance.

But in previewing his all-for-show mini-attack on Syria, Obama might as well be telegramming Hitler that there are these five beaches in Normandy where something interesting might happen at 6:30 a.m. on June 6.


Post-college SAT

I can already hear the calls of racism. 'Post-college SAT' aims to level the playing field in crowded job market.

That test, CLA+ (shorthand for Collegiate Learning Assessment), is designed with the dual knowledge that prospective employers are increasingly souring on GPA for evaluating college grads, and students who take Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) can develop competent job skills without ever earning a college degree.

Scored on a 1,600-point scale, the CLA+ “represents the latest threat to the fraying monopoly that traditional four-year colleges have enjoyed in defining what it means to be well educated,” the Wall Street Journal’s Douglas Belkin reported Sunday in the front-page article “Are You Ready for the Post-College SAT?”

Science!

Science has now validated the AoSHQ lifestyle. Again. Have a difficult problem to solve? Try vodka.

Unprecedented Heat

Unprecedented heat causes Poudre School District to close. 88 degrees. On August 30th. Unprecedented? I'm sure a three day weekend had nothing to do with this. Here's the school district website. They better cancel next Friday. It is forecast to be 90 degrees.

Hazard Maps

Pretty cool. Trulia has updated their maps to feature hurricane, tornado and wildfire hazards. No word yet when they'll have a hazard map of progressive policies.

A Polish Ladies Dream

This won't end well. Polish woman wants to see the world and have sex with 100,000 men. I don't think her boyfriend realizes how long this will take.
