This seems more interesting than True Detective http://www.kcra.com/news/local-news/news-modesto/3-chp-officers-modesto-attorney-arrested-in-2012-turlock-killing/34725300
The window is seriously closing on the GOP. If an Establishment front-runner does not take charge soon, in all likelihood an unelectable fringe candidate will be nominated. Time for Jeb! and his paymasters to admit failure. Its not too late for Romney 2016. He may be our only hope of avoiding disaster.
Almost is the keyword. I'm thinking Paulie Gaultieri velour track suits or maybe the full Hefner.
A sense of autonomy is a key ingredient in high level teaching or advanced research. That sense of autonomy is reflected in varied clothing styles. Autonomy is also a main reward for a successful academic career. Freedom from social norms is exercised as a prerogative of successful academics and as a status marker (i.e. the red sneaker effect is strong among professors). The dynamics of dress style (on and off campus) have been driven by the changing status of tech...
They call themselves police officers but they are not public employees.Actually, it looks like the DA agrees"Deters, a UC graduate, said the city of Cincinnati should take over campus patrols and the UC police force should be disbanded."They're not cops," he said of UC police. "Being a police officer shouldn't be the role of this university."http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2015/07/29/publish/30830777/
This Tensing guy wasn't even a real police officer, he was a University of Cincinnati security guard (actually this maybe why the prosecutor is throwing him under the bus). I understand why private university security might be deputized to deal with criminals if they are in high crime neighborhoods, but should they really be out on the street enforcing minor traffic violations like a missing tag? Seems more like just a license to harass citizens.
I'd never considered that. You are probably right, though it would be so much worse if that is so. I just assumed it was some random dumbness to kickstart a pretty cool action scene. If supposedly the criminals thought it was a good idea to arrange a mass killing on an LA street in order to derail a go-nowhere investigation into nothing, then that would be dumbness on a much higher level. They say the cover-up is always worse than the crime, but thats a little much.
The shootout scene was great, but the rest of the episode was a disaster. The biggest problem through Ep. 3 is they were moving too slowly on the case. The whole point of a show like this is the impact that interacting with some particularly intense bit of evil has on the character of the detectives, but there has been practically zero plot progression to generate character progression. Then, their desire to have the drama at the end of the 4th episode meant they spent...
Unfortunately, many young people get the idea that the corporate world must be an "Office Space" dystopia and go into academia as the only available refuge. This mistake leads to a lot of unhappy people. I think people should get a job in the private sector or government before they get a Ph.D. because they often discover the many rewarding things you can do. It seems like you have your eyes open. W/o being too specific, I work in a non-science, kind of...
The main appeal, to me, of being a professor (beyond the intellectual satisfaction, I mean focusing on the working conditions alone) is the unique blend of independence and security. In both teaching and research, nobody is looking over my shoulder on a day to day or even year to year basis offering guidance/supervision of the basic work product. Ultimately, if the students complain too much you might have a hard time and you don't get raises or promotions if your...
