While not for certain folks, specifically

The altMBA is not for people who are looking for a traditional MBA education.

We do not cover topics such as economics, accounting, supply chain, or data analytics.

It’s also not for people who care about certificates or grades. We are unaccredited, informal, and non-bureaucratic. We don't give tests or grades.

. . . it could be of interest to young(ish) people you know. It's a summer program, one month, 20 hours per week, and it's remote

The  is a 31-day online leadership workshop that celebrates our shared humanity and provides students with the skills they need to be impactful leaders and make meaningful change.

"Why Are So Many Guys Obsessed With Master and Commander?"

I'm not "obsessed" but Master and Commander easily makes the top ten movies I've seen in the last 20 or 30 years. It's beautifully acted, written, and photographed. The leads are two people you can really root for. And it ends--it's not too difficult to write a movie's protagonist into an interesting jam, but it's much harder to write an interesting, satisfying way for him or her to get out--really well.

"The English Major Has a Marketing Problem"

The author makes a good try, but, sorry, I don't buy it.

I’m not rich. I don’t drive a nice beamer like my homegirl who studied Engineering does. But I’ve made a solid living using the skills I honed as an English major. And I’m not alone. 

Because while, yes, many English majors go on to become writers, professors, journalists, or players in the world of film and television, just as many end up in adjacent, less-creative fields that pay well, like marketing, public relations, management, law, nonprofits, and even tech. 

One reason is the skills he supposedly acquired are, I think, the exceptions rather than the rule. (For instance, at my former employer and I believe many other colleges and universities English professors now try like crazy to avoid teaching composition skills.) And two, I think he misses how the major has changed. See, for example, "The Humanities: Another Example Of Leftism Ruining Everything It Touches". For another example, see "Who Killed English Literature?"

"Critics of Fox News Need To Look in the Mirror"

Features a list of 15 lies told by the mainstream media just in the last several years.

Even if we give them the benefit of the doubt and say that some of them aren't "lies" but different interpretations of the world and that for others, an original "fact" was modified by subsequent learning, what is objectionable is the utter arrogance with which the media's conclusions were presented and even worse, their attempt to dismiss any differing interpretations or dissenting views.

John Nolte has an even longer list in "Fact-Checkers Busted Again--Biden Seeks to Eliminate 96% of Gas Stoves".

Related: "America's COVID Response Was Based on Lies" and "I Heard the News Today, Oh Boy." The latter has the following statement that I fully agree with:

I’m getting a little tired of presidents of the United States repeating things that could only be spoken by an idiot or a liar, and then trying to intimidate people out of contradicting them.

"Why the Mental Health of Liberal Girls Sank First and Fastest"

Long, interesting read. It ends this way:

All of Gen Z got more anxious and depressed after 2012. But Lukianoff’s reverse CBT [Cognitive Behavioral Therapy] hypothesis is the best explanation I have found for Why the mental health of liberal girls sank first and fastest.

A disagreement on the timing: "Teen Mental Health Distress Didn't Start with the Phones".

"Even CNN Isn't Safe on the Streets of San Francisco"

Maybe you're tired of reading my posts on Baghdad by the Bay. But trust me, for an indication of shocking social disorder this one is hard to top.

Got robbed. Again. @jasonkCNN & I were at city hall in San Francisco to do an interview for @CNN. We had security to watch our rental car + crew car. Thieves did this in under 4 seconds. . . .

BTW; @jasonkCNN and I are in San Francisco doing a story about voter discontent bc of rampant street crime. 

Bonus: Just another day in San Francisco.
