Underlying Logic: On Grade Inflation
Two unrelated events have called my attention to grade inflation recently. One was a post on Grinnell Plans from a current student who had seen a chart demonstrating the upward drift of Grinnell's grades over the last decade. Essentially, the overall mean GPA has risen from roughly a B grade to roughly a B+ grade--a large change for such a short time, and as I understand it, a fairly typical change over the same stretch in many colleges and universities. The second was a detailed post by Steven Willett on NASSR-L, an email list populated by a couple of thousand people interested in Romanticism, mostly graduate students ... market research, surveys and trends

Working to give students the opportunity to reach high standards of learning demands that educators and state and local leaders take responsibility for ending the practice of social promotion--where students are allowed to continue to pass through school with their peers without satisfying academic requirements or meeting performance indicators at key grades. Research indicates, and common sense confirms, that passing students on to the next grade when they are unprepared neither increases student achievement nor properly prepares students for college and future employment. (1) At the same time, research also shows that holding ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Cutting Tool Applications, Chapter 9: Drilling Methods and Machines
Many types and sizes of drilling machines are used in manufacturing. They range in size from a simple bench mounted sensitive drill press to the large multiple-spindle machines able to drive many drills at the same time. Simple drill press: A simple drill press, shown below, may be floor-mounted, or have a shorter main post and be mounted on a bench. The motions of this machine are very simple. The table on a floor model can be raised or lowered and rotated around the machine column. The spindle rotates and can be raised and lowered, with a stroke of 4 inches to 8 inches. Stops can be set to limit and regulate the depth. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Copper Shortage Looms as Codelco Sees Limits on Mines
July 6 (Bloomberg) -- The world’s biggest copper producers are warning of looming supply limits at the same time that growing concerns about the global economy leave investors with the largest losses in nine years. While London Metal Exchange futures anticipate prices no higher than $6,652 a metric ton through the end of 2011, or 1.1 percent more than for delivery now, 13 of 14 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expect a shortage next year. Traders are being too bearish because lower prices may curb spending on mines and exacerbate future shortages, said Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which forecasts a price of $8,050 in 12 months. market trends, news research and surveys resources

Inflated grades or inflated hype? | Ask MetaFilter
Is grade inflation really that serious a problem at colleges and universities? Looking to cut through the rhetoric associated with this issue. Before posting this question, I dutifully sought out an answer through Google, and I didn't realize that grade inflation had become such a political issue. I don't exactly follow radical right wing punditry, so I didn't realize that to so many from that lot Harvard = grade inflation = some sort of liberal plot or another. Well, whatever. I know that there are statistics out there that show that, for example, Ivy League schools hand out a higher percentage of high grades ...
WikiAnswers - How bad is marijuana for you
Research on the long-term effects of marijuana abuse indicates some changes in the brain similar to those seen after long-term abuse of other major drugs. For example, cannabinoid withdrawal in chronically exposed animals leads to an increase in the activation of the stress-response system and changes in the activity of nerve cells containing dopamine. Dopamine neurons are involved in the regulation of motivation and reward, and are directly or indirectly affected by all drugs of abuse. Long-term marijuana abuse can lead to addiction; that is, compulsive drug seeking and abuse despite its known harmful effects upon social ...
