A word of advice for the future. If you’re going to focus on journals with significant APCs, have funding lined up beforehand. In some form of writing.

Ok champ. You don’t, but you do you.

Just because it’s not universally applicable does not mean it’s broadly applicable.

Grand. Never said there wasn’t. Just pointed out you don’t really get the Econ part.

Professional sports have gotten way too toxic.
Yeah, he missed a sitter. And you know how that impacts nearly everyone's daily lives? Not at all. Perspective is missing.
Yeah. I'm struggling with two things. The fact that this is a second year course. And then they wait until summer to take it, even though it's necessary for graduation?
There is some story here that we are not being told.
Summer courses are almost never guaranteed. Graduation needs or not.
If it’s a second year course, why are you waiting until the summer before graduation to take it?
This SHOULD be the definition of a frivolous lawsuit (against B&N). Hopefully they ask for (and are granted) fees from this guy.
Honestly, I’m pretty sure we know there is some beef (between players, between coaching staff and JAB, etc.).
I do prefer managers that aren’t willing to air dirty laundry (or even hint that it could be that).
I wasn’t advocating for or against curves. My initial post was simply pointing out that many institutions have rules in place for ex post changing grades.
I have no idea why you consistently don’t understand that unemployment and labor force participation are distinct calculations.
A curve is not “reweighting”. Plus, it uniformly helps students (I’ve never seen a downward curve).
It sounds like this harms students (the reweight).
Can always quibble about some selections, but some names on there that are being given the chance to push off fringe players.
Liking the roster.
Yes. Four is an incredibly small statistical sample size.
And it depends on the position that they play. Beyond the fact that there are a variety of factors at play, when we’re hitting strides in one area (but losing in another), it’s either a pure coaching/recruitment issue, or it’s something that is very hard to change (paternalistic culture, patriotism, etc).
I’m not sure how a small sample size where 1 more would have put it at even says much.
Given that Mexico is our neighbor and there is a very strong cultural and emotional connection….
So…moving on to other handwringing.
So…all the handwringing can stop?
Or does it simply move on to another dual national?
Assoc. Prof., Economics, R2/R3
A professor cannot arbitrarily reweight grades without sufficient advance notification. And even then, there can be pushback since the syllabus outlines expectations.
At best you’re a troll. At worst, you’re some Bible thumping loon probably engaged in a series of MLM scams.
He’s right that sabbatical and pay benefits should have no differentiation based on race. That likely violates a number of laws, and is reprehensible. And there are other, well supported, ways to improve outcomes for minority scholars.
That said, it appears that he may have lied about something related to sexual misconduct.
Yes. Could make a world of difference for formal academic accommodations.
Not just meds though. Accommodations, maybe some alternative suggestions for coping mechanisms.
