Not a PhD, an MA in Education. She's going to be an art teacher.

Sure, but it's also an interesting precedent (Upgradable to PhD, of course.)

Litrashure? Write some poetry. A novel for the hardcore intellectuals.
Sociology? Describe your vacations. (Or file it under anthropology, geography, architecture, whatever.) With boring slideshow.
Biology? Me and my dog. Or cat, hamster…
IT? My 10,000th tweet, with reader comments.

Sarcasm apart (and I don't find her work all that bad, as a lame-o comic book), how does such a document take its place in academia?
  • She admits herself that it's unstructured (that's why I posted that pic), so you can't find anything inside;
  • How the hell do you quote from it?

Would be entirely OK as a craftman's masterwork. :mrgreen:

That's completely elementary, and at least a century old (the gentle Kandinsky comes to mind). I feel my sarcasm isn't so misplaced…

In the USA, Masters in Education is just a hoop you have to jump through to get a license to teach in public school.
Her thesis demonstrates she will be good at teaching art to children.

No one thinks it's a "real" degree except the professors. Certainly not the teachers who get it.

I first learned this from my mother who was a licensed schoolteacher in NYC.
And whose thesis was "dreadful drivel". Her words not mine. I never read it.

↑ Ah, OK! So I was under a false impression judging from local master theses (4 years on the benches): lots of work & research. Even if you just want to teach.

↑ Shooting an ambulance, but "contains non-GMO" isn't "contains no GMO"…

You might ask yourself: Why the massive cheese stockpile? There’s a larger story here: US dairy producers have been overproducing milk. When there’s a milk surplus, it gets turned into cheese, which can be stored for longer periods before spoiling. The Post notes milk and cheese surpluses tend to peak during the summer months, when dairy demand is down. Additionally, cows — which are more efficient milk producers than ever before, thanks to selective breeding — generate the most milk in the springtime.

This trend isn’t new: As Brad Plumer reported in 2016, the American dairy industry has been overproducing for years. (In 2016, the US Department of Agriculture purchased millions of dollars worth of cheese to help ease the surplus. It was distributed to food banks.)


Sounds good to me: give it to hungry people.

Cows don't adjust their output based on current demand.

Gotta watch out for that "increese" in the gonial angle.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray
