Academia Fraud and Brain Washing Cartels

Many have a tough time listening to the scientists debate amongst themselves and laugh at the peer reviews. With puffed up chests they publish or perish and there is lots of competition in the field. They borrow concepts, steal research, claim originality and fight like hell to be heard. Through all these smaller battles they gain the respect of their institutions and continue the right to shape the minds of our next generation. They often use the same techniques of debate to confuse and turn minds of the students, thru master manipulative venues and their elevated status riding high on the historical records of the Universities themselves.

Government Research Procurement Fails to Bring Efficient Bidders

Many have complained of the Government?s procurement process for research proposals. It is totally flawed. Instead of giving bids to entrepreneurs who know how to get things done on the fly, they so often give the grants to the best paperwork pushers.

The fact is many of the research projects are far from mundane; many have the potential to hyperspace the human race forward in a single discovery. Once the proposal is won or lost the grant or proposal team is onto the next proposal and then the next. Sometimes it is nothing more than a numbers game where teams are judged by future funding captured rather than having any sense of seeing the project thru to fruition.

The person is not ?crazy,? but rather just never learned appropriate ways to express intense feelings. Some of the most common ways to self-injure include cutting, burning, hitting, scratching, and pulling hair. A person who self-injures usually does so in private.
