Cancel the philosophy courses, people. Oh, and we’re going to be shuttering the political science, religion and pre-law departments too. We’ll keep some of the English and history folks on for a while longer, but they should probably keep their rsum handy.
Because, you see, they are of no use anymore. We have the answers to the big questions, so why keep pretending there’s anything left to discuss?
At least that’s where Erin Ching, a student at Swarthmore College, seems to be coming down. Her school invited a famous left-wing Princeton professor, Cornel West, and a famous right-wing Princeton professor, Robert George, to have a debate. The two men are friends, and by all accounts they had an utterly civil exchange of ideas. But that only made the whole thing even more outrageous.
“What really bothered me is, the whole idea is that at a liberal arts college, we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion,” Ching told the Daily Gazette, the school’s newspaper. “I don’t think we should be tolerating (George’s) conservative views because that dominant culture embeds these deep inequalities in our society.”
Over at Harvard, another young lady has similar views. Harvard Crimson editorial writer Sandra Y.L. Korn recently called for getting rid of academic freedom in favor of something called “academic justice.”
“If our university community opposes racism, sexism and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals simply in the name of ‘academic freedom’?” Korn asks.
Helpfully, she answers her own question: “When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.”
One could easily dismiss these students as part of that long and glorious American tradition of smart young people saying stupid things.
But we all know that this nonsense didn’t spring ex nihilo from their imaginations. As Allan Bloom showed a quarter century ago in “The Closing of the American Mind,” these ideas are taught.
Indeed, we are now up to our knees in this Orwellian bilge. Diversity means conformity.
Overall, 53 percent of Americans now support gay marriage, according to the new survey. There is also growing support among adherents of every religion included in the report.
Public support for gay marriage may have reached a tipping point, even among religious Americans, who have been traditionally opposed to the idea.

Ten years ago, roughly one-third of Americans supported gay marriage, according to the Pew Research Centers 2003 survey on homosexuality. Today, 53 percent of Americans say they believe gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry, according to a new survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute in Washington.
The latest poll illustrates a fairly remarkable shift in attitudes, PRRI chief executive Robert Jones said during a conference call with Reuters. As public opinion goes, we really rarely see this kind of movement on any issue over a decades time.
While more than half of Americans currently favor a universal right to marry, the data show that levels of support vary drastically by region, state, generation, and education level. That probably does not come as a surprise to those following the embittered battles surrounding gay marriage in Utah, Virginia, and Michigan, among other states. But what is surprising is that religion seems to play a much smaller role than it did a decade ago in how individuals decide where they stand on gay marriage.
Ten years ago, whether or not an individual subscribed to a major religion was a relatively good indicator of their stance on gay marriage: Believers resoundingly rejected the idea that the right to marry should be extended to gay and lesbian couples, while an overwhelming majority of religiously unaffiliated Americans supported a universal right, the PRRI report states. Over the past 10 years, support has grown among practitioners of every religion included in the both the 2003 Pew survey and the 2013 PRRI report.

Go to the wives, widows and children to get the story, says an author and activist.
Going nowhere: Palestinians make a shelter from the salvaged remains of an encampment at Makhul, in the Jordan Valley, which was razed by the Israeli army in September last year.(AFP)
Half-jokingly, international author Victoria Brittain is told that some in her audience hope to recruit her to the “second struggle we call it the class struggle”. The authors “first struggle”, her credentials related to her fight against apartheid, as a journalist and activist, are well known in South Africa.
Politely, but knowingly, she laughs at the suggestion.
About 40 activists, scholars and Brittain fans are crammed into a small cottage at the University of Johannesburgs Bunting Road Research Village on a warm Monday night.
Brittain speaks with authority; her tone is measured. She has covered wars from Vietnam to Angola and is a patron of the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign in the United Kingdom.
Brittain is here to talk about her book, The Shadow Lives: The Forgotten Women of the War on Terror. Former minister for intelligence services Ronnie Kasrils leads the conversation. Brittain is a veteran writer of war stories and Kasrils leads her straight to Palestine.
She says the way to write about war isnt to talk to the generals; its to talk to the women, and the refugees.
“If you want to convey texture, the true horror of Palestine, tell the story of the women and children.”
In the Jordan Valley, she visited families living in tents.

As the euro area surfaces from its worst crisis on record, the blocs best-rated member and a key proponent of austerity is losing jobs and gaining debt.
The challenges facing Finland — a stable AAA rated economy — are historic, Finance Minister Jutta Urpilainen said Jan. 10 in Helsinki. I would like to promise that the euro crisis will end this year, that Finnish structural change in industry will stop and government-debt growth will halt. Unfortunately, I cant.
Finland, which has topped euro-zone credit rankings since Moodys Investors Service cut Germanys outlook in 2012, is now in a depressed state, Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman said last week during a Nordic tour. He blames the administration of Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen for peddling austerity policies that have undermined demand while failing to reduce the governments debt load.
Finlands fate underscores doubts about the value of driving policies that focus on debt reduction while an economy is losing jobs. The nation is one of eight in the 18-member euro area that saw its economy contract in both 2012 and 2013, according to the European Commission. The blocs jobless rate remains at a record 12.1 percent, with youth unemployment at 24.2 percent in November, Eurostat estimates.
Now, Katainens six-party coalition says it risks breaching the European Unions debt requirements, which limit public borrowing to 60 percent of gross domestic product. Unemployment rose to 7.9 percent in November from 7.4 percent a month earlier, Finlands statistics office estimates. An indicator tracking GDP fell an annual 0.6 percent in October.
Finland is still quite significantly depressed, according to Krugman, who questions the value of sacrificing an independent monetary policy for euro membership.
Finlands economy lags behind neighbors Sweden and Norway, export-led countries that chose to remain outside the euro. Swedens buoyed by domestic demand and Norway is shielded by the worlds largest sovereign wealth fund managing $820 billion in investments built from the countrys oil and gas revenue. Even as Norways economy slowed last year, projected growth of 3 percent in the mainland economy this year far exceeds the 1.3 percent forecast for Finland, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Sweden will expand 2.3 percent, it said.
Katainens budget cuts have coincided with a decline in Finlands biggest industries. Nokia Oyj (NOK1V), once the poster-child of Finnish ingenuity, capped years of losses by selling its flagship mobile phone operations to Microsoft Corp. in 2013 as the nation loses out on technology growth.
Another key provider of Finnish jobs, the forest industry, has floundered as paper mills are shuttered and books and magazines get replaced by the electronic word. Thats pushed Europes two biggest papermakers, Stora Enso Oyj (STERV) and UPM-Kymmene Oyj (UPM1V), to cut staff in their efforts to survive.
Meanwhile, Finland is at least half a decade behind Spain and Portugal in matching pay with productivity as it drops behind southern Europe in boosting exports, the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy ETLA said in August.

Albany, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
Since 2004, driven by agricultural machinery subsidies and other favorable policies, China’s agricultural machinery industry has achieved rapid development, the gross output value of agricultural machinery exceeded RMB 300 billion, total power of agricultural machinery surpassed 1 billion kilowatts, and the integrated mechanization level of agricultural crops exceeded 50%, demonstrating that China has entered into a mechanized production-oriented period.

Tractors and harvesting machinery are the most important agricultural machinery products in China, with annual output of 2.25 million units and 1.114 million units in 2012 separately, far higher than those of other countries and regions. Currently, Chinas tractor product structure has shown significant differentiation: large and medium-sized tractors grow steadily, while small tractors decline gradually and even experienced a double-digit decrease in 2012.
Among Chinas three major crops, wheat has basically realized mechanization, while corn and rice lag far behind, especially the harvesting of corn and sowing of rice. In view of this, China has increased the subsidies and investment in these two areas, the mechanization of corn harvesting soared from 6.8% in 2007 to 42.8% in 2012, and is expected to surpass 48% in 2013; correspondingly, the mechanization of rice transplanting increased from 11% to 31.7%, and is estimated to reach 35.0% in 2013.
