Harvey Mudd went out of its way to bring in considerably more female and diversity students. Guess what happened?
Harvey Mudd eight years ago revised its core curriculum, cutting it back from four semesters of courses to three and allowing for more elective classes. It was a measure that faculty and administrators believed would reduce student workload and stresses, and they were frustrated to learn it was not successful after many months of planning, Klawe said.
Some faculty members, meanwhile, told the interviewers that students were not prepared for their classes, and that they’d observed deterioration in the ...

What's remarkable is that there are still women and white knights who are shocked that men no longer allow women to physically attack them with impunity
Shocking video footage shows a bounce punch a woman in the face after she took a swing at him. The incident took place on Matthew Street in Liverpool and was posted on Twitter, sparking a huge response - with many people debating as to who was in the wrong. The woman, wearing high heels, marches towards the burly bouncer before swinging a punch towards his head. The bouncer ducks to avoid the ...

More jobs for women, fewer jobs for men
If you’re searching for a job, the odds of finding one may depend on your gender.
Overall, occupations that are more than 80% female are projected to grow at nearly twice the rate of jobs that are at least 60% male between 2014 and 2024, according to research out this week from the jobs site Indeed and its chief economist, Jed Kolko. The site researched Bureau of Labor Statistics and found that many are jobs that are traditionally dominated by women — including occupational therapy assistants, physical therapy assistants ...

This is why you don't let your daughters mudshark
Gunfire on Friday morning claimed the lives of a St. Paul father and the two teenage daughters he doted on.
The shooting at a Payne-Phalen apartment also left the girls’ mother clinging to life.
Immediately after the shooting, authorities began a frantic search for one of the victims’ daughter — an 18-month-old girl. Police found the toddler safe and arrested the man who was hiding with her in a shed not far from the apartment.
Police found another suspect in the case, Jeffrey Jamaile Taylor, 20, the ...

One wonders what terminology would be preferred
by medical women:
The first time I got pregnant, I was a comparatively young mother, for my demographic: I was 25, in medical school, surrounded by classmates who, for the most part, were not reproducing yet. By the third pregnancy, 11 years later, I was over 35, which classified me, in the obstetric terminology I had learned in medical school, as an “elderly multigravida,” that is, someone who was having a child but not her first child, af...

Of course, you have the right to move on
. And would be well-advised to do so:
So basically I've just started seeing someone new and as part of the getting to know each other conversation he asked how many other people I've slept with.
I don't really know what a normal number is but I know my number is pretty high compared to my closest friends so I wasn't comfortable telling him
So I told him I wasn't going to answer that and he pushed a bit then left it so I thought that was the end ...

A sport invented by white men is now run by Jewish owners, played by black men, and will be coached by white women
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he is committed to seeing a woman become head coach of an NBA team. In an interview with ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk on Tuesday, Silver said the NBA needs to do more to “accelerate the move toward a woman being a head coach in the league.”
Silver said he would make it his responsibility to see a woman become a head coach while he is commissioner.
“I think it is ...

A rape victim defends a judge
A rape victim has backed a warning by the female judge presiding over her case that drunk women are putting themselves in danger. Megan Clark, 19, was attacked by a man she met in a fast food restaurant after drinking beer and vodka during a night out in Manchester. After the attacker's trial, Judge Lindsey Kushner was criticised by campaigners for warning that potential attackers 'gravitate towards girls who have been drinking'.
Ms Clark has now dismissed claims Judge Kushner was 'victim blaming', insisting she was just warning people to be more ...

Roosh observes that most Western women are now less stable and feminine than the prostitutes of the 1930s
In Iceberg Slim’s day, a normal woman with a stable family could not be turned out—only a girl who has already succumbed to vice would even allow him to approach her. But now we have an entire generation of women who are so broken that they race to an app like Tinder with the hope that a good looking pimp with smooth text game will turn them on for a fleeting sexual encounter. The moral defenses of women have been so ...

One would think they come equipped with death wishes
The man suspected of murdering a British backpacker in Goa has been escorted to a police station with a bag over his head, as authorities confirmed the 28-year-old was raped before her death. Danielle McLaughlin was found in a pool of blood on Tuesday morning after she had attended Holi celebrations at Palolem beach. Her killer reportedly sexually assaulted her and 'disfigured' her face with a beer bottle.
A local man, 23-year-old Vikat Bhagat, who police said was a known thief, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and ...

Science is discovering that women, not men, tend to be more dyssocial
A recent study by the well-known Professor Robert Dunbar has shown ‘a very striking sex difference between male and female friendships.’ In the few days since Dunbar gave a talk on the results, a number of articles have written of the superficiality of male relationships; rather, they focused on Dunbar’s view that ‘women clearly have much more intense close friendships…very like romantic relationships…if they break, they break catastrophically.’ Whereas men are painted as superficial – ‘With guys it is out of sight out of mind. They just ...

It appears that purpose and meaning in life are physically beneficial
<>Parents, take courage. If you survive the sleep deprivation, toddler tantrums and teenage angst, you may be rewarded with a longer life than your childless peers, researchers said Tuesday.
Fathers gained more in life expectancy than mothers, a team wrote in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health -- and particularly in older age.
"By the age of 60, the difference in life expectancy... may be as much as two years" between people with, and those without, children, they concluded.
Researchers tracked the lifespan of ...

SIGNS OF REAL INTELLIGENCE
- You learn from mistakes
- You read for fun
- You can argue from multiple perspectives
- You think before you speak
- You don't care what others think
Note how four of those five factors simply don't apply to gammas who like to consider themselves highly intelligent. If you are a gamma male who refuses to admit mistakes, only argues from your current point-of-view, reacts emotionally and incontinently to criticism, and observably care deeply about what others think of you, what are you telling others about your intelligence?
And before anyone tries to get pedantic, note that if you ...

Let reason and experience be silent when a young woman's feelings gainsay their conclusions
I warned her as graphically as I could that she was already well down the slippery slope leading to poverty and misery—that, as I knew from the experience of untold patients, she would soon have a succession of possessive, exploitative, and violent boyfriends, unless she changed her life. I told her that in the past few days, I had seen two women patients who had had their heads rammed down the lavatory, one who had had her head smashed through a window and her throat ...

It's FEELINGS that matter most. A retiring judge warns young women, and naturally, meets with criticism:
One of Britain's most senior female judges warned drunken women that they will be a target for rapists as she retired from the bench today.
Lindsey Kushner QC said all women were entitled to 'drink themselves into the ground' but she warned their 'disinhibited behaviour' put them in danger of being raped by men who 'gravitate' to drunken females.
She spoke out as she jailed a man for six years after he raped a drunken girl he met in a Burger King ...

Women's March organizes a protest:
<>Organizers of January's Women's March have called for women to take the day off and encouraged them not to spend money to show their economic strength and impact on American society.
"A Day Without a Woman" on Wednesday is the first major action by organizers since the nationwide marches held the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration that drew millions of women into the streets in protest against misogyny, inequality and oppression. Though it is unclear how many women could participate, thousands across the country have signaled their support and interest online and to ...

Thought crime on a bus
A bright orange bus appeared in public on Monday in the city of Madrid with several phrases written on its sides stating blatant biological facts: “Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina. Don’t let them fool you. If you are born a man, you are a man. If you are a woman, you’ll keep being one”.
It didn’t take long for the government officials to spring into action. Madrid’s City Council, which is ruled by liberals, promised to take the “necessary measures” to stop the bus from touring the city ...

RSM points out that feminism isn't merely a crazy and incoherent philosophy, it's an inherently destructive, dyscivilizational one
The point I wish to make here is not that this woman is crazy — although, obviously, she is — but rather that this kind of paranoid madness is a logical consequence of the core beliefs of feminism.
Most people in this world are just doing whatever it takes to survive. Get up in the morning, go to work, come home at the end of the day, eat supper, watch TV a while and go to sleep, then ...
