Geology would be good. You could finish in 2 years since you should already have most of the pre reqs via your pete classes.
Another option would be construction management. Without summer classes, it would take 5 semesters, with summers and intersessions, you should have enough pre-recs to finis...

In his defense, the Arab Spring was a humongous opportunity to bring stable, secular, free, democratic representative republics to the Middle East. However, it was clear that the Arab Spring was also a wildfire in shifting winds that could not be controlled or contained. Clearly, we failed at infl...

"My Own Prison" is my favorite.
"Higher" is ok, as is "My Sacrifice" They're not nearly as bad a band as their reputation on the internet insists. Most people only hate Creed because the lead singer tried to market himself as a Christian while being an a-hole in his personal life. The music itse...

The issue with incarceration is that having incarceration on one's record often presents a massive barrier to them finding legal employment upon release. Without the ability to find legal employment to sustain their livelihoods, these freedmen often end up having to fall back on illegal occupations...

[quote]I agree that for-profit prisons are probably a bad idea, but this is just patently not true (although it makes for a good conspiracy theory).[/quote]
It's a chicken or the egg question, but in this case, the for-profit prisons didn't come about until long after the high incarceration rate ...
