re: Mississippi school district fined $7500 for opening assembly with prayer - anc
Alright, I did it. Here is a t-test with the average ACT score by state, using only states where 90 percent of the students took the ACT, and the percentage of African Americans in the school systems. Just numbers, people, but the numbers correlate. P value and statistical significance: The...

[quote]LOL. You actually included average scores from states where they had 10% take rates? LOL[/quote] Yes, I included the one state with a 10% take rate, Maine. I was just interested in seeing the correlation. If I dare, I would plug black population in and probably get similar resu...

re: Mississippi school district fined $7500 for opening assembly with prayer - anc
You also have to account for the fact that some idiots in Mississippi think every student should take the ACT. I don't have the current number, but at one time 99 percent of Mississippi high school seniors took the ACT to come up with that average. It higher scoring states, that number is closer to ...

Mississippi Coaches Get Mad that they are getting beat, start a fuss - anc
The parochial schools in Mississippi compete with the public schools in the Mississippi High School Activities Association. Last year, there was a push to have them banned from doing so - it was narrowly defeated. This year, they decided to enforce a rule that prohibits non-Mississippi residents ...

re: Getting pre-approved financing for a car loan - what steps to take? - anc
Penfed is the way to go. You could go to a local credit union. The last car I bought, I called the credit union, talked to them about five minutes and they told me to come pick up a check. It was a blank check so essentially I was a cash buyer. Im about 100 points under you on credit score. ...

re: On More Actively Teaching Philosophy to the Citizenry - anc
[quote]The average college freshman is reading at a 7th Grade Level. [/quote] I can attest this is true. High schools have taken the attitude of "at least they are reading" when assigning texts. Classic literature is out. In my high school career, I read The Scarlet Letter, 1984, Animal Farm...

re: The embarrasing/ugly parts of your campus - anc
at MSU ... Dorman Hall. The ugliest building on campus happens to be in one of the prime locations on campus. Luckily when College Gameday was there they were able to hide it from the cameras because it is literally RIGHT ON THE JUNCTION. [img]http://www.pss.msstate.edu/images/dorman_sign.jpg[/i...

I don't know the couple, but we were told at a recent dinner party that the catalyst in a local divorce was Pinterest. Seems the wife wanted a better life and she saw all of the decorated houses that were being pinned and her current husband couldn't provide it. Disturbing trends, indeed. ...

It would take Oregon losing to Eastern Washington or Michigan State losing to Western Michigan for Gameday not to be in East Lansing Week 2. MSU at Auburn on September 26 has a shot if both teams are unbeaten. That's a pretty lax weekend across the nation. You have UCLA-Arizona, BYU-Michigan, an...

Seems like a good compromise. I have never used an illegal drug. I didn't even know what marijuana smelled like until I got to college, but this is ridiculous. We are throwing people in prison for life for this? [link=(http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/02/27/fate-vincent-winslow-got-lif...
