31  Water Cooler / This and that / How Not to Cheat on Exams
« on: November 22, 2010, 08:25:36 PM »

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newsvideo/weirdnewsvideo/8140456/200-students-admit-cheating-after-professors-online-rant.html

Also here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbzJTTDO9f4

Professor Richard Quinn accuses students on cheating based on statistical analysis.

ďI donít want to have to explain to your parents why you didnít graduate, so I went to the Dean and I made a deal. The deal is you can either wait it out and hope that we donít identify you, or you can identify yourself to your lab instructor and you can complete the rest of the course and the grade you get in the course is the grade you earned in the course.Ē

After his rant, over 200 students admitted to cheating.

34  The Tech Section / Tech News / Commentary / Does the BlackBerry PlayBook Have Legs?
« on: October 26, 2010, 05:05:04 PM »



iPad obviously off and running. I've not been impressed so far by Android and PC tablets. However, I'm starting to think that the PlayBook may actually do very well. What do you think?

Killer feature: Adobe Air and HTML/CSS/JavaScript native development on the PlayBook. Very easy to build apps for the platform. Check out the Air support:

35  Water Cooler / This and that / Dylan Ratigan's Rant
« on: October 23, 2010, 12:41:28 PM »

I'm skipping over the View/O'Reilly bit at the beginning with the link to the interesting part (at 2:45). Dylan Ratigan takes it to the hoop. Nails the landing. (insert your own sports metaphor here).

36  Water Cooler / This and that / OKCupid Data on Straight vs Gay People
« on: October 12, 2010, 06:45:08 PM »

Not exactly what you were expecting. The data doesn't support a lot of stereotypes.

37  Water Cooler / Tasteless or Not Tasteless / Ann Coulter is a Fag Hag?
« on: October 09, 2010, 09:38:37 AM »

She's trying to channel Bette Midler. I guess gay men like "boney".

39  Fight Club / Religious Debate / Atheists Rule
« on: September 28, 2010, 04:52:22 AM »

Atheists know more about religion than religious types. It must be an IQ thing, right?  ;D
