Letitia Chai’s Barren Ivy League Education
Creators.com, by Dennis Prager

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 5/16/2018 2:18:26 PM

The most remarkable thing about the title of this column is that not one reader will think it’s a joke. That, my friends, is further proof of the low esteem in which most Americans hold our universities. The Left has rendered our universities, in the description of Harvard professor Steven Pinker, laughingstocks. As reported in the Cornell Daily Sun and then around the world, this is what actually happened last week at Cornell University, one of our “Ivy League” universities: Senior Letitia Chai presented a trial run of her scholar senior thesis wearing a blue button-down shirt and cutoff jean shorts. Her

When the professor questioned her choice of attire, she took offense and stripped to bra and panties. Read on.

Avoid the Ivy League. I live near Arizona State which is now the largest University in the country. They have some of the finest academics in the world teaching. Students from all over the world. You won´t find any of the entitled, spoiled brat mentality. I have two friends who are professors. If I go on campus to visit them I meet the nicest students. I don´t understand how Letitia got so screwed up.

Re #4, Arizona State was a “party school”, a place where kids with lower academic achievement could gain entry. No more. A friend’s son has attended there for several years. Everything you describe.

Chai could have made the same point by bleeding when she cut off her arm, dropping a deuce, any number of things that all people do. Proving that she is human is not really why she was there and her acting out is beyond insulting on any level except higher education.

Back during my teaching days, I required a formal presentation by each of my graduate students, after learning that most of them made it through undergraduate school without ever having to make a formal presentation.
I required each student to dress professionally, have good handouts and visual aids, and to speak clearly. And I had all of the students evaluate each other.
One young woman, during her presentation, dropped her 3x5 cards, began crying, and threw up. She gave me a terrible student evaluation, said I had unreasonable expectations, and rigid requirements.
A few months later, she called, said she had a final interview with a prospective employer, but had to make a formal presentation - and would I please help her?
I smiled, and did help her.

What a foolish girl. She is lucky enough to be receiving an Ivy education, and she refuses to absorb what is being taught.

What would happen if her employer, in that first big job out of school, questioned the professionalism of her attire? Would she strip her clothes off in a hissy fit then? Would she still have a job after that?

#16, it appears your lesson was taken to heart after all.

PARKLAND, Fla. - Several parents of victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre said that if former Broward Sheriff´s Office Deputy Scot Peterson, who stood outside the school for several minutes while bullets rang out, had done his job, their children might not have lost their lives. (Snip)But now, a report that recently surfaced has some victims´ families calling for a renewed investigation of Peterson for a case he handled four years to the day prior to the massacre.

Florida-based supermarket chain Publix announced Friday that corporate-backed political contributions will be suspended “as we reevaluate our giving processes” – an announcement that came shortly before Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg’s “die-in” protest. In response to the revelation earlier this month that Publix donated $670,000 to Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, Hogg organized the “die-in” protest to occur at a Publix in Coral Springs on Friday where participants were instructed to lie down in the store for 12 minutes. Shortly before the protest was set to begin at 4 p.m., Publix issued a statement regarding the suspension of corporate-funded

President Donald Trump signed a series of executive orders on Friday that will expedite the process of terminating “poor performing” federal government employees. The new rules will “require all federal employees to devote at least 75 percent of their work hours for agency purposes, senior administration officials said. The administration estimates that these actions could save taxpayers at least $100 million a year, BuzzFeed reports. “These executive orders make it easier for agencies to remove poor performing employees and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used,” Andrew Bremberg, the White House’s director of the domestic policy, told reporters.

President Trump said Friday he would stay for "hours" to shake hands with all graduating seniors at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. Trump closed his address to graduates by asking them to weigh in on whether or not he should stay. "I was given an option. I could make this commencement address, which is a great honor for me, and immediately leave and wave goodbye. Or I could stay and shake hands with just the top 100. Or I could stay for hours and shake hands with 1,100 and something. What should I do? What should I do?" he asked. "I´ll stay,"

Ex-CIA Director John Brennan

John Brennan, President Obama’s former CIA director, again used his verified Twitter account Saturday to lash out at President Trump, this time by threatening House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). (Snip) Brennan did not explain what “major responsibility” Ryan and McConnell will “bear,” but as America’s former chief spy, Brennan probably has all kinds of Deep State ties, methods, and contacts at his disposal. Brennan’s threat was in response to President Trump’s ordering the Justice Department to look into the Obama administration’s spying on his 2016 presidential campaign, an unprecedented act that a number

NEW YORK — Email transcripts and other information disclosed in testimony released by the Senate Judiciary Committee reveals a significant relationship between Russian-born Washington lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshi and the controversial Fusion GPS firm that produced the infamous, largely discredited anti-Trump dossier. Akhmetshi was one of the participants at the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials. The meeting has been the subject of much news media coverage related to unsubstantiated and collapsing claims of collusion with Russia. All meeting participants generally agree the confab focused largely on the Magnitsky Act, which

A tiny fraction of Texas registered voters had an outsized impact on the May 22 runoffs. Here’s a look at what you need to know about Tuesday night’s election returns — and what they mean for the November general election: Democrat Lupe Valdez will take on Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in November. Lupe Valdez has made history. Some 14 years ago, the liberal, gay Latina set her sights on an unlikely goal: Dallas County sheriff. Now, she’ll take on an even bigger challenge — running against the popular incumbent Republican governor. (Snip) Democratic voters made some history of their own.

The fumbling and waffling in the American and international media on three urgent contemporary issues: North Korea, Iran, and Palestine, reveal the dangers of the vacuum created by the Obama Administration in international relations, and the efficacy with which the Trump Administration is filling the vacuum. Obviously they are distinct crises with different origins. But in each case, the permissive withdrawal of the Obama Administration incited the escalation of these problems to the point where they disturb the peace of the world.

The New York Times and others now admit/defend the very Obama-era spy program that they long denied existed and that was being used against the Trump campaign in 2016. Leaving aside the stunning political scandal that is that fact, shouldn’t the Establishment Media now also admit that if the Deep State was spying on Trump all this time doesn’t that also mean it has known there was never any collusion/conspiracy etc., involving Mr. Trump and Russia? That the entire Trump-Russia collusion was a Deep State created hoax all along? It has to be one or the other right? How about it

A Democratic pollster has the perfect plan for Democrats to win back the House and the Senate: run on the Mueller witch hunt investigation. "There is a real information and education challenge for progressives to make sure more people learn that there is a ´there´ there. Does it mean it´s going to be the focus of an entire ad campaign? Probably not. But there are real arguments that are impactful to voters and ways we can win this argument if we engage," Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson told Caitlin Huey-Burns of Real Clear Politics. Democrats should emphasize the indictments, he said.

NEW YORK — In his newly released book, Sen.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns. Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience. "I didn´t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn´t be something you brag about," Obama joked.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

"I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections," Clinton said at Harvard University, in a clip flagged by NTK Network. "You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College."

Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress. The conceit of those claiming Mr. Trump has crossed some line in ordering the Justice Department to comply with oversight is that “investigators” are beyond question. We are meant to take them at their word that they did everything
