The Earth's climate is changing - due to global temperatures rising.
The temperature rise is caused by greenhouse gasses being added to the atmosphere.
Those gasses are the byproduct of human industrial activity.
proposing support of a group that hopes to maintain scientific research in this field, in this thread, is not a controversial statement and is so far to the end of the political spectrum it is laughable. It's like asking to volunteer with your local public school PTA: that's not asking you to call your senator to demand they vote against Devos at SedEd. It's like asking to volunteer at an orphanage - which is not asking you to donate to planned parenthood. You should BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO RESIST the urge to impart political connotations to every little statement.
Now, there are some statements to which the 'no politics' rule here should apply. I think you might know what kinds of statements those would be so I shouldn't need to mention them. perhaps you should look up the definition of concern trolling.

Here's something simple my wife and I discovered. So our kids' school district isn't too affluent. Apparently, there is a program at each school where parents/PTA gather food from food pantries or just make it themselves, organize it and give that food to the guidance offices where students who need help getting food over the weekend can pick it up discretely.
scary to think about, but about 10-15% of kids like school b/c it's a warm place where they can get warm food on the regular (free/reduced price). long weekends can cause stress on those kids. And this is the richest society in the history of civilization.
Edit: IDK if you're in A2, but I know A2 has a significant free/reduced pop. you wouldn't think so, but it's actually a very top and bottom heavy district economically. not a ton in the middle.

Well, I have a degree in Astronomy from UM. MS in Physics from EMU, and ABD where I subsequently transferred to MA in Sec Ed at UM after my daughter was born. I teach Calc, Physics, engineering for HS SRs now. /qualifications
How did you know it was the right major for you?
fascinated about the biggest of the big - stars, galaxies, cosmology, dark matter, BHs, relativity, spacetime, all of it. The more physics I took, the more I liked it (unlike Chem, which I liked in MS/HS, was OK in AP and eventually hated Orgo at UM; bio was never my thing - too much memorization). Have him look at the course offerings in asto at UM or where ever - if it sounds like the greatest thing ever to take a class about star types, BHs, DM, galactic structure, then that's a good sign. Like, genuinely excited to take the class.
What does the job situation after college (he's assuming he'll have to go to grad school) look like?
I know people who finished with a BS and went to work at Havard Ctr for Astrophysics, at a planetarium, and even the FBI (they just want smart, technically oriented problem solvers with computer experience, I assume). Kind of limited, but it's possible.
MS: you can teach at the instructor level, probably at a Comm Coll. Better chance to work at a research institution. can find a place where you are doing kind of tedious grunt work, but with a high level of tech skills in analyzing data. Will get published as like the 5th-10th name on the paper.
PhD opens all the doors, but it's publish or perish as they say.
Other than Michigan, what are some schools with good astonomy departments?
Lots of smaller schools have decent -good Astro depts: Smith College in Mass, Union Coll in NY. Too many obscure places to name, really. Maybe Google on campus observatories - that's probably a good correlation to good Ugrad astro depts (not always tho). Of course, the usual Ivies, Cal, Stanford, UM, Wisc as you'd expect. ASU and UAriz as well as UHawaii. PSU and MSU are quite good. UWindsor is good as well. I think USNews publishes rankings for tons of concentrations, FWIW.
Is it feasible to get a strong liberal arts undergrad degree and then go on the astonomy/astrophysics in grad school?
Yes, but major in Astro or applied physics or physics
Do you have to be a super math whiz to even consider this as a major?
OK, so here's the thing that confuses people. The word "Astronomy" has a connotation of purely qualitative observation. For example: phases of the moon, asteroids/meteors/meteorites. Eclipses, planetary orbits (how they lead to the seasons) and basic HS science/math concepts applied to space: Doppler effect, geometry and trig for parallax angles, etc. So it kind of fools people into thinking Astro isn't all that math heavy (kind of like how some tech or engin programs in HS make kids think they want engineering). It sounds to me like he wants "Astrophysics" which is exactly what it sounds like and is the same as "astronomy" at the college level and in the field. You'd take almost all the physics and math there is at the Ugrad level. So, yes.
Anyway, if you want to know more feel free to reply here or is you want we can correspond over email, let me know.

how so many people believe in mega conspiracy theories regarding hundreds or thousands of scientists, grant writers and government employees who are all collaborating to invent data, misinterpret data or whatever is so fucking sad. Ignorance, arrogance, political confirmation bias and an inferiority complex have all combined in this age of information to produce this phenomenon.
Honestly tho, it comes down to how little respect people have for education in the country. You get a PhD or almost any other letters after your name and about half the population of this country rolls their eyes. And it's only going to get worse, b/c the people without those degrees will have fewer and fewer jobs as robotics development becomes more efficient, cost effective.
They will search for answers as to why their lives are shite, no jobs, no money, no success like the people they see on TV all day. It isn't their fault of course, it's the government's fault. Their school teachers, politicians, and the "elites."
There is no hope for the future, my friends, unless you retreat to VR. Which I highly recommend that you do.

on the other hand, in Neb, the B10 get's a huge fan base and a nationally recognized historical power, a great volleyball program, a solid and well-supported athletics program with a large fan base. Neb in return gets to be second fiddle to M/OSU and perhaps Wisc/PSU/MSU/Iowa to a certain extent. Their baseball team was solid in the B12 and has since gone to shit AFA I can tell (but clearly a lower level of competition in the B10). I know they get more $$$, but if you ask most Neb fans, I think they would say they miss playing Tex, CU and OU and the cotton bowl, and feel like the B10 hasn't done much for them. I realize that relative failure is based on "on the field performance."

You can definitely see how people think Brian comes off as a spoiled child at times.
I wasn't upset about the calls during the game - the PI on HIll was legit, esp. upon replay.
the spot was always going to be ruled in favor of the call on the field and that's always a judgement call.
the holding/lack of holding and a couple no calls on PI and especially the spots consistently going toward OSU and against M provides a legit hypothesis that should be vetted with a complete study of the reffing in this game.
If Brian did this (not a chance, IMO) he would likely get one of the top trafficed posts on the site. If he does it and finds a pattern of bias one way or the other, that's pretty big news. If he does is and finds no clear pattern, it puts the debate to rest. if he does it and basically finds (as I would expect) no evidence one way or the other (plausible deniability, AKA ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) then that also puts it to bed, IMO b/c that's just a game called the way all games are called when there is a complaint against the refs (see: any PSU loss).
Quantitatively speaking, If greater than 85% of the spots are judged in OSUs favor AND/or 85+% of the holding calls and no calls and/or 85+% of the PI calls and no calls are in PSUs favor, I'd say that's evidence of clear malice from the officials.
60-85% would be a plausible deniabilty --> this is what I'd expect on the road in Cbus.
less than 60% is standard, close to a 50-50 called game.
I think it's a slam dunk for the blog to do this, but Brian's too much of a baby/coward to do it.

see, I don't think this is the best way to use him. You want the ball in his hands ASAP, at the snap - not 15-40 yeards downfield. and that's what they've been doing with him.
People keep expecting to see some kind of unused counter, but I don't think that's how Harbaugh operates the offense- that strategy would be more like Carr teams... run the same bland shit vs Houston/Rice/EMU and save the "surprise" (bootlegs) for the big games. Harbuagh is running a ton of stuff, reverses, jet sweeps, AND running the counter plays later (throw back to Speight, Full back gives off jet sweep motion). He wants to show everything to the opposition (all of them, not jsut OSU, MSU, etc) has to prepare for everything. So the opposition can't just gameplan around one thing, them M pulls out the counter for a big game. That creates what Carr teams had: slogs for 90% of the plays, then a screen or bootleg for 20-40 yards that flips field position/gets into FG range or the RZ to set up a TD. This year it's a consistent march for 3-4 yards WITH bigger plays of 15-25 yards. Teams can stop neither the mainstream stuff (b/c they have to have significant focus on the counter) NOR the bigger counter plays.
I think on a year to year basis he changes things up. Last year was a lot of FB dives, this year not so much. Last year (IIRC?) more pulls and counters to power, this year not quite as much.

The schedule strength stuff just doesn't matter in the long run. They have to win @ Iowa (meh, but it's primetime on the road so if they win by 2+ scores, lots of people will see a cofortable win), and if they win there, @OSU and the BTT game, they are assured a 2 seed, and likely push Alabama for the top seed.

I just want to point out that the MSU D has 5 SRs + McDowell. Half the D leaves next year.
Their Offese has 6 SRs + the FB and 2nd TE are SRs. More than half the O leaves next year. All according to the personnel diagrams Seth provides.
That team has 13 SRs who have been in EL for 4-5 years now and they are all garbage. no one behind them can seem to break thru either.

what's amazing to me is how many SRs State has - on offense, they lose 3 OLs, 2 WRs, FB, 2 TEs. They have some talent returning at WR andRB of course, but the QB situations looks like a disaster as well.
I don't know if McDowell is leaning toward leaving, but is the defense any different?

I'm always shocked how people complain about how turrible the D was. they had their issues coving guys deep (and maybe that's onthe scheme - we heard all off season how the Don Brown D is solid but prone to the big play). Classic line: if Sefo Liufau doesn't get hurt who knows how many yards they put up.
fact: he was in in the 2nd Qtr. how many yards did they put up?
fact: the D got to him the entire 2nd Qtr and it was *this D" that knocked his ass out of the game. Crist, he didn't trip on a cable on the side line and stub a toe. his ass was crushed for 3-4 strainght drives. that's football. get to the QB and if the next guy up ain't as good, that's not the D's fault.
28 pts surrendered. 7 weren't on the D and 3 were big plays. Limit the big play a bit, coach up the safeties, get Taco, Mone and JLew back and we'll be solid for Wisc.
PSU is not gonna put up a fight next week.
