  Beware of Invention Scams
Posted by: The Bison - 08-15-2016, 02:43 PM - Forum: General Education Discussions - No Replies

https://www.uspto.gov/sites/default/file...revent.pdf

LITTLE RESEARCH CAN SAVE A
LOT OF MONEY, ASK QUESTIONS
Get answers to these questions in writing from any
promotion, marketing or licensing company wanting to
help you. Helpful hints are given in the brackets.
1.
Total number of inventions evaluated for commercial
potential in the past five years by the Company
. H
ow
many
of those evaluations were positive
,
accepted by
the Company
.
H
ow many were negative
,
rejected
by the Company.
2.
Total number of customers, known by the Company,
who have received a net financial profit as a direct result
of the Company’s promotion services
. W
hat is the
Company's
success rate over the past five years [that is,
the number of
who made more money from
their invention than they paid].
3.
Names and addresses of all previous invention
promotion companies with which the Company or its
officers have collectively or individually been affiliated in
the previous 10 years and what other names has the
Company used in this or other states.
4.
Total number of customers, known by the Company,
to
have received license agreements for their inventions
as a
direct result of the Company’s services. [lf the
success rate
is low, say less than 5%, then think
about going elsewhere].
5.
How many customers
have contracted with the Company
for
promotional services in the past 5 years; excluding
those
who have purchased trade show services research,
advertising or other non-marketing service: and
excluding those who have defaulted on payment to the
Company.
6.
Is there an up-front fee and, if so, how much is it and
what are you getting for it? How much will the complete
process cost from submission of my invention to
obtaining a patent and a licensing agreement?
[Reputable firms have relatively small, upfront or
other
fees because they make their real money from
successful
royalty arrangements for the inventions they
accept].
7.
Has the Company ever been investigated by or been in
trouble with the Federal Trade Commission, Better
Business Bureau, any
consumer protection agency or
Attorney General's Office and if
so, when and where?
8.
Who selects and pays for the patent attorney or agent
to do the patent search, patentability opinion and patent
application preparation? [You should be able to select
your own, because the attorney or agent represents you,
not the Company].
9.
Provide you with the names, addresses and phone
numbers of five clients of the Company in
you
r
geographical area and copies of all contracts and forms
to review [Do this before signing or paying any money].
10.
Does the Company provide a written opinion of the
"marketability" (that is, potential success) of your
invention?

  When Will Hillary Snuff It?
Posted by: Armando Ramos - 08-12-2016, 06:04 PM - Forum: General Education Discussions - Replies (18)

When will Hillary snuff it?

Before the election?
After the election but before inauguration day?
After inauguration day?

Note that inauguration day isn't necessarily HER inauguration, just that of whoever wins.

It appears that the internet hacking group “Anonymous” has just got a hold of Hillary’s medical records, since she won’t release them, and they are brutal.

If these are real, they may disqualify Hillary from holding the Oval Office:

  National Review: Trump University was a sham
Posted by: The Bison - 08-12-2016, 10:58 AM - Forum: General Education Discussions - Replies (6)

The National Review is hardly anyone's idea of a liberal publication. So if they are taking a shot at the Republican nominee for President and the institution which bares his name it pekes my interest. Read on....

This article goes back to February but I think its still noteworthy.

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/432...rsity-scam

In all fairness I believe what happened was that Donald is that he was approached by investors looking to start a school which featured lecture by supposed experts. Donald then sold his name to the school and let the school run itself.

Students were admitted to ten lectures on real estate investment by nobodys. No one who paid reports seeing Trump.

  JohnBear I have a question for you
Posted by: The Bison - 07-20-2016, 03:37 AM - Forum: John Bear - No Replies

I presume you are not a poser or a phony. Anyone can pretend to be anyone online. I can say that I am President Obama but it would not make it true.

If you are really John then I applaud your courage in coming into hostile territory to give your side of the story.

Anyway, I wanted to discuss Warren National University, also called Kennedy-Western.

I am a graduate there and I believe there is a great deal of misinformation regarding the school.

The primary source was from a 2003 GAO investigation where no students, faculty nor administrators were allowed to give testimony! The star witness was an officer in the Coast Guard who claimed to have earned 40% of her credit in 16 hours. This is, in reality misleading since it is possible she was given credit coming into the university. Also since she, by her own admission took only one class.

I believe that if this is true, she may have cheated. I certainly think she cherry picked the course looking for a very easy class.

What I do know is that I communicated with many other graduates and found that this is not normal at all. Many students took up to a year or two years to complete 60 hours. Note that the University did require a minimum of 60 credit hours to enter any program.

I also heard many ridiculous claims and statements from disgruntled former employees who said that "any one who can write a check can get admitted." And any junior college could say the same. The same goes for many four year schools. I do not think that the University of Pheonix, for example has very strict admission standards either.

I do know that the now defunct Cheyenne Herold (the work of really just one man) published a long string of articles on Kennedy Western/Warren National and the editor/publisher virtually declared war on the school and its students.

I am not going to say that criticisms are without merit. In fact, now that the school is out of business, many students cannot get transcripts or copies of diplomas. This is a serious problem affecting many students.

But I would say a lot of this is due to the destruction of the school well intentioned individuals. The real losers in this battle were the students and graduates.

  Bob Jones University is unacredited?
Posted by: The Bison - 07-20-2016, 03:12 AM - Forum: Unaccredited vs. State-Approved vs. Accredited - No Replies

http://www.bju.edu/

I was reading about how the founder opposed accreditation even though this school was legitimate from the beginning. Reading up they seem to have bowed to pressure and applied for accreditation. What is interesting though, is that this school did not become accredited until the early 21st century.

I cannot log in with my old username and password.

I forgot my password since I had not posted in a while and attempts to recover it failed. For this reason I created a new account.

All I can say is remember your password.

  Gollin Ethics Training For University and College Transformation (GETFUCT)

Gollin Ethics Training For University and College Transformation (GETFUCT)

Having failed as a physics professor, diploma mill expert, politician and parent, self-described crackpot George Gollin is now taking the next step in his brilliant career—he’s appointed himself an expert in ethics and will begin offering training courses.  His new project will be called Gollin Ethics Training For University and College Transformation (GETFUCT).  Inspired by his infamous diploma mill research, the course will be available to any ethically challenged person with a credit card.

Contrary to popular belief, George Gollin has only been convicted once of violating the Illinois ethics laws.  He has been sued multiple times in federal court for stalking, defamation, extortion, civil rights violations, and computer hacking, but in Illinois who’s counting?  

George Gollin has been fined $5,000 for violating Illinois ethics law, the maximum allowed under the statute, but mere cigar money for the millionaire who has never held a non-government job or operated a private business.  

After making 1,280 posts on a discussion board operated by a notorious gay boy pornographer, George Gollin was quoted as saying, “I was going to f*ck them!”  

As the deadly ebola crisis swirled out of control in Africa, it was George Gollin who sabotaged the operations of the St. Luke School of Medicine in Liberia, resulting in untold numbers of needless deaths.  

Despite claiming to be diploma mill fighter, George Gollin endorsed Carol Ammons, who claimed a fake “degree” from the totally fake Walsingham University.

George Gollin admitted that his own dissertation was not his individual work but rather a 16-person collaboration written for him by his friends.  

With qualifications like these it’s easy to see why George Gollin thinks he is an ethics expert.  That’s why people everywhere are saying, “Go Gollin!  Go GETFUCT!”

  Gregg DesElms Snuffs It
Posted by: Herbert Spencer - 03-20-2016, 10:00 PM - Forum: Gregg DesElms - Replies (23)

[Image: blimp001.jpg]

Informed sources confirm that Gregg DesElms and his keyboard diarrhea have been permanently silenced, effective March of 2015.  The Lord, in His infinite wisdom, has flushed another loathsome turd down the heavenly porcelain convenience.  Apparently permanently planted in All Souls Catholic Cemetery in Vallejo, in case you want to stop by and leave a "remembrance" on his grave. 

Eloquent testimony to how little he was missed; it was a year before anybody even noticed the asshole was gone.  Praise the Lord, for His wonders never cease!  Better late than never, but about damn time.

Like a brown stain on a mattress, Elmer left us all something that time can't erase.  In the immortal words of Curtis Knight, “He’s not gone, he’s just dead.”  

Hey Elmer, hope you said hello to Janko and Israel on your descent to the Infernos of the Netherworld.  Not sure about the sentencing criteria in Hell, but Elmer’s earthly antics surely earned him a double eternity enhancement.  Write a book about that, you cunt.

Congratulations to whoever had Number Six in the NCTSI pool.  They’re starting to drop like flies now, so get your bets in.

  Hitlery's Fed Ed Jackboot Squad
Posted by: Don Dresden - 03-10-2016, 10:57 AM - Forum: General Education Discussions - Replies (20)

Quote:Hillary’s Federal Education Jackboot Squad
By Michelle Malkin
March 9, 2016, 5:00 am

Brace yourselves, parents: Hillary Clinton’s Fed Ed jackboot squad is from the government and is here to “help.”

Clinton wants a cadre of new government educrats to undo the decades-old damage of old government educrats in America’s worst public schools. She pitched her creepy proposal at the Democratic presidential debate in Michigan on Sunday for an “education SWAT team” to swarm down and rescue students from failing districts in decrepit cities such as Detroit (run by whom? Oh, yeah. Democrats!).

“I want to set-up inside the Department of Education, for want of a better term, kind of an education SWAT team, if you will,” Clinton explained in a bizarre, semi-blaccent, “where we’ve got qualified people, teachers, principals, maybe folks who are retired, maybe folks who are active, but all of whom are willing to come and help.”

Clinton’s SWAT team solution, you should know, is like all her other authoritarian plans: a moldy, recycled oldie. In fact, the U.S. Department of Education already has a real military-like enforcement division housed in its Office of the Inspector General — and armed with its own arsenal of Remington pump-action shotguns and Glock pistols.

As usual, Big Sis’s brilliant idea to fix the schools boils down to throwing yet more money down the sinkhole. According to the latest data, America spent more than $600 billion to fund K-12 education in 2011, mostly from state and local taxes. Last year, the feds allocated an estimated $154 billion on education, with a large chunk going to Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I Grants to Local Education Agencies, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act State Grants, and the Pell Grant program for college students.

Washington already spends more per student (nearly $13,000 per pupil) in both primary and secondary education than any other of the 34 wealthiest countries in the world except for Austria, Luxembourg, Norway and Switzerland, according to analysis of data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Under the Bush administration, the No Child Left Behind behemoth authorized $23 billion a year on intrusive and ineffective federal testing and accountability mandates.

Under the Obama administration, the feds threw $4 billion into the “Race to the Top” racket, $10 billion into an Education Jobs Fund for teachers unions, and $100 billion in pork-stuffed stimulus funding for school programs and initiatives administered by the U.S. Department of Education.

Detroit Public Schools, plagued by massive deficits, financial mismanagement and graft, collected a whopping $530 million of that stimulus slush fund — nearly $50 million of which went to a technology boondoggle that provided 40,000 Asus laptops to students and teachers despite little evidence nationwide that such programs do anything to raise student achievement.

States are spending upwards of $10 billion to implement the bipartisan Common Core racket of testing, textbooks and technology. That’s on top of the pre-existing $700 million spent by schools nationwide on other standardized tests and assessments and the $24 billion in annual spending required by the NCLB successor, the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act.

Mo’ money has only produced mo’ problems. American test scores are still abysmal. One in 10 high schools remains a dropout factory. Highly touted improvements in graduation rates, such as those in Alabama, were achieved by abandoning requirements that students pass a high school exit exam.

Detroit’s schools, swimming in $3.5 billion of accumulated debt, face bankruptcy in April. The district is now under FBI investigation for a vendor kickback scheme involving the very kind of “experts” — entrenched teachers, self-serving principals, and profligate school officials — whom Clinton would enlist to rescue the schools they are guilty of plundering.

It’s government SWAT team business as usual: Destroying the village to “save” it.
