Most undergraduate degrees in the U.S. have liberal arts and humanities as requirements because they aren't entirely vocational programs (if at all). As Fields points out, the emphasis on Classical literature for English majors isn't an argument by Conservatives about employability.

I've been on the internet since the '90s, before it became accessible or relevant to the masses. Now there's literature on the linguistic cues of hype news and populism that's surged since then. Amid the myriad [sic] of sources and personalities, however, sober news genres (i.e. wire services and investigative reports) attract me most.

I would've loved the Q12 assessment when I worked at the headquarters of one call center. Representatives weren't necessarily assigned to a function based on their strengths rather than time served. Regardless, I'd like to try the CliftonStrengths survey. It can help me identify my own strengths before I undertake my next personal or professional project.

There's a brokerage firm called Prevu that services the NYC market. The website says it pays the buyer a rebate up to 2 percent of the Prevu agent's commission. Could a commission rebate be an option to protect buyers in the U.K. or U.S. market?

I continue to argue big college sports as a Black Labor, White Wealth revenue model. However, it conflicts me to advocate these athletes attend HBCUs to redistribute the wealth. I support HBCUs as an Afro American infrastructure, but I don't support the unpaid labor of elite Black talent.
