The Cost Of A Worthless Degree From California State University Just Got More Costly

Inflation has been all but non-existent during the Obama Years, yet you wouldn’t know that looking at the increase of College/University Tuition at the State Level, especially in California. Students are told in High School that college is mandatory to have a fruitful life and live in the elusive middle class, and are told to go into debt to get that degree (more like economic enslavement) with no guarantee. Most of the college professors and administrators are in the 2%, no not the 1% but well ahead of what their students should ever expect to get to. Let’s talk, because the academic bubble is still building and its about to pop – things have gotten way out of hand.

There was a rather troubling segment on ABC News Affiliate in Los Angeles (Eyewitness News 7) recently titled: “CSU Trustees Vote to Raise Tuition by 5% Amid Protest From Students” on March 22, 2017.

First, I’d like to point out that the education hasn’t gotten any better at the California State University System, by all measures and accounts it has gotten worse. Degreed Students are valued less in the marketplace, as employers realize their education isn’t as good, and that those degrees don’t predict the students will be productive employees or even have a clue as to what they are doing.

Most professors, especially tenured professors are not teaching in the classroom much, as they spend lots of time on sabbaticals, and have grad students lecturing now. The increased costs of the university has to do with legacy costs (Pensions) and increase healthcare Cadillac Style Health Care Programs for staff and professors. Although their pension fund is not as bad as the University of California System which highly underfunded, it isn’t breaking any records either – this Trump Bump in the stock market recently has saved their asses (temporarily) if you’d like to know the true skinny on that.

It’s time to face facts – The CSU system (California State University) is broken, academia is broken close the damn universities who give degrees in Gender Studies, Sustainability, Ethnic Equality, LBGT Studies – those kids aren’t going to get work to ever pay off those student loans – academia is on drugs by any rational observable standard – worthless – totally worthless surviving off of Federal Research Grants and Taxpayers and extortion tuition, subsidies and socialist agendas. Some at our think tank online, to put it quite bluntly, say; “To hell with all of it, it’s just BS now,” and I believe these think tank members are absolutely correct.

Why the 5% increase in tuition when enrollment is at an all-time high? Why the increase in tuition without increased benefits? The degrees aren’t worth any more than they were last year, in fact they are worth less now. The California State University System is out-of-control just like the University of California System is, and academia across the country is with student loan debt hovering at 1.4 Trillion Dollars, 45% of those loans have never made a single payment or are 90-days overdue. The academic industrial complex is a giant bubble about to burst, and what does the CSU system do? Raise tuition? Oh, well that’s just going to help a lot lot… NOT!

Inmate Search: How to Locate a State or Federal Inmate

Once a criminal defendant has been found guilty and sentenced to a term of incarceration, they effectively become the property of either the Federal Bureau of Prisons or their state’s department of corrections. Once incarcerated, their ability to control their housing location and communication with the outside world is severely curtailed. This article strives to assist family members, friends, and attorneys of state and federal prisoners in locating their incarcerated loved ones and clients through the means of inmate search tools.

What is the Difference Between a State and Federal Inmate?

The United States is divided into a number of law enforcement jurisdictions. For the most part, states govern crimes committed within their borders, although the federal government can also prosecute crimes committed in any state, as long as the crime violates federal law. Due to this duplicity, a resident of any state in the nation (or U.S. territory) can be charged with either a state or federal crime.

The difference between a state and federal inmate lies in the crime that was committed and which law enforcement agency is investigating and prosecuting the case. For example, stealing beer from a local grocery store would most likely be a state crime, while robbing a federal credit union is most likely a federal crime. There are also several crimes that violate both state and federal law. For example, criminal defendants charged with possession or production of child pornography are technically violating both state and federal criminal statutes. As such, they could be charged either in state court (which provides for sentences measured in months or years for this conduct) or federal court (which provides for sentences measured in years and decades for this type of conduct.).

How Can You Locate a Prisoner?

Locating a state or federal prisoner is not like locating someone outside of prison. There is no 411 to call, telephone book to search through, online inmate yellow pages, or an app to help in the location process. Instead, there are online inmate locators; search tools which help those outside of prison locate those in prison. These inmate locators consist of web pages where the user can input the inmate’s first name, last name, and/or registration number and receive certain information.

Some inmate locators merely provide the inmate’s name, the prison where they are incarcerated, and their projected release date. Other inmate locators also include age, date of birth, crime of conviction, criminal history, and even their institutional disciplinary history. Each state, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons for that matter, provides different responsive, digital records.

If the prison system lacks such a prisoner search tool, prisoners’ families and friends can always call the headquarters for the prison in question. The website for the prison system can be located through a Google or Yahoo search, and the phone number should be readily available there.

Who Operates these Inmate Locator Services?

Categorically, these inmate locator tools are operated by each individual prison system. This is exclusively the case because it is the state or federal prison system in question that possesses, and has access to, the database that contains the personal and location information of the inmates incarcerated within their respective prison systems. While not all states have an online inmate locator search tool, most do, and many county detention centers and jails do, too.

What About the Many Private Prisoner Search Websites?

A simple Google or Yahoo search will indicate that there are thousands of website that offer information about state and federal prisons and those incarcerated therein. Some might even be so bold as to suggest that they themselves have their own inmate search tools. Such claims are usually dubious. At best, these private prisoner search websites have links to the state and federal inmate locators, where the user can then search for the inmate in question.

The problem with these websites is that by and large, they are focused on selling advertising, services, or products. They are based on commerce, not information. In order to fulfill their mission, they tend to spread out their information as much as possible to keep users clicking on new pages (and, thus, rendering more ads or product placements). Often, prisoner’s families and friends land at such a site, start looking for the information in question, become frustrated when they can’t find it, and give up in their search.

As for information about prisons themselves, most of the private websites that provide this information don’t bother to keep it up-to-date. Instead, they post each prison’s location and other general data, and then allow it to stagnate, where it eventually becomes outdated and useless.

Is There A List of All of the Government Inmate Locator Tools?

While there are many websites that purport to offer this type of information, many fall flat in their promise. But there are two entities that seem to do a good job. Prison Education News ( ) and Prison Legal News ( ) both provide a very handy tool that presents links to each state’s prison system’s inmate locator tool. And this information is all contained on a single page, which makes them a breeze to use. These are probably the best tools around.

What If I Still Can’t Locate the Inmate I’m Searching For?

If a family member, friend, or attorney of an inmate still can’t find the location information they seek, they are advised to follow the above advice and call the central office or headquarters for the prison system in question. They should be able to provide the necessary information. If this doesn’t work, the guys at Prison Legal News and Prison Education News should be willing to help.

Alternative Medicine – Digital Education in the Ecosystem

There are new algorithms programmed on the internet with new commands and support for users. The Internet is designed with deep neural networks that recognize the user through the profile, browsing sites, subjects and categories, web traffic internet scores for impact, web traffic engagement, styles of marketing, formality and level of work.

The internet provides users with a system of keywords, hash tags, titles, subtitles and meta data, brand identity, image association, which automatically creates a magnet for the user to recognize, and be recognized by the field. The keywords, skills, and tags, associated with the user (in this case the alternative therapist), generate the most relevant data, post shares, profile connections and information in the social feed. For instance a shiatsu therapist, will notice zen systems, acupuncture systems, tuina systems, articles, pages and practitioners will recurrently appear in a feedly stream, slack stream, klout stream, linked In stream or favourite news stream.

A shiatsu therapist not familiar with the internet, not with a digital blueprint, developed profile, awards, honors and skills listed, will not find relevant data linked to his social networks and streams. Self-support must be engineered through profile development, skill listing, image optimization, elite and active promotional activities. Paid campaigns and leads boost the user profile and attract targeted audience. Facebook, linked In and slide share are favoured sites for generating leads and acquiring recognition. This is essential for career development, as the clientele contacts the Internet for best practitioners and good profile records.

The jargon from posts released daily on the internet on bots and new programs under development, may confuse issues more than support. There is care needed from systems related to artificial intelligence. The new internet has bot programs which recognize documents and their sources, images, users, visitors and records. These bots must be identified and put to use. A therapist may use a CRM with bots that recognize information and provide support. Slack also has popular bots that do the work. In this arrangement the receptionist can ask the bot to recognize an older customer revisiting, whose records are lost, and locate them. Incase a client has a false name or identity, the bot can recognize it. Bots can also keep data secure.

Other new arrangements include app integrations which can assess phone calls and their capacity to manage customer care protocols. They can also use radar based face mapping to identify visitors secretly, via computer cameras. This is technology used for developing metrics and big data. There are endless supporting integrations available to manage updates on research, fast tracking of information needed, alternate referral programs, therapy networks and marketers.

In the case of advanced companies and marketers, substantial data will be available on the customer. The internet applications can pull out confidential information and identify socio-economic status. In some companies support can be generated via unseen social and economic networks, to support the customers special needs. There is programmed levels of management that discretely provide internal security and comfort in means.

The level at which the alternative practitioner operates shows up significantly on the internet. Career boosting is based on the 360 degree turnaround.
