I guess the Cricket changed to some other node after the network infrastructure upgrade. It's still at zero, despite uploads and downloads working.

I'm off to bed, so someone else can hunt down the new address.

I tried, but I can't find any data. Both inr-210/211 are silent: I tried 212 and up, but got "This page is temporarily out of service" - which may or may not mean "reserved for future expansion".
...

The ucb routers selection page still shows only inr-210/211 as being at the data center, and the sum of all datacenter traffic to the tier 2 routers inr-201/202 is also flat at zero.

I do hope that they intend to restore that data flow visibility, but perhaps there's a possibility they've decided to keep it hidden: reason for panic?

I suspect they have been so busy with cables that the pretty up the page tasks are left to work days.

No. Racism has nothing to do with skin color.

And you would be 100% correct. Racism is a misnomer. It has zero to do with race. The issue is discrimination based on ethnic culture or being different. That even includes white trash culture. That also includes the finger pointing and name calling "fatso."

Until you can properly identify a problem, you can't hope to fix it.

Senate candidate Loretta Sanchez appears to disparage American Indians
“I am going to his office, thinking that I am going to meet with a,” she said, holding her hand in front of her mouth and making an echo sound. “Right? ... because he said Indian American.

Ms. Sanchex is the daughter of Mexican parents. Without a DNA test I'd wager that means Ms. Sanchez has a good bit of Native American blood in her. Of course her family might be pure Spaniard in which case she is White European. But neither of these are her ethnic label.

I still call Racism xenophobia and a reason for opression...

In any case it seems to be about a person who identifies with one culture putting down a person who identifies with a different culture. Xenophobia may well be a better word.

Of course the issue is deeper than making fun of another group. It is about making economic or commerce decisions based on groups. Poverty.

Escapism is akin to a dream. Human brains need to dream to function. Hence REM sleep. If that also happens in something called a daydream or by watching a fictional movie, SO WHAT?! Not every damn thing produced should or must by government fiat show only approved thought patterns. We aren't North Korea!!!

Gosh, Harvard?
http://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/coalition-sues-harvard-over-alleged-admission-racial-quotas-n357701
A coalition of more than 60 Asian-American groups filed a complaint today against Harvard University, asking for an investigation into what it alleges are "discriminatory practices" in the Ivy League school's admission process.

"We want to eliminate discrimination of Asian Americans, and we want procedural justice for all racial groups," Yukong Zhao, one of the chief organizers and a guest columnist with the Orlando Sentinel, told NBC News. "All racial groups should be treated equal."

The complaint, which Zhao said has the support of a number of Chinese, Korean, Indian and Pakistani-American groups, asks that the United States Department of Justice and the United States Department of Education require that Harvard "immediately cease and desist from using racial quota or racial balancing" to admit students and "ensure that Harvard and other ivy league schools will never again discriminate against Asian-Americans or applicants of any other races."

Yes of course two parents are best, but this world of ours in real life doesn't always provide that.
Yes, in some places it is 5 parents, 1 male and 4 female. Other places two of the same sex. Sometimes it is god parents. Other places it is state nanny. There may still be a few places where it is an entire tribe as parents.

Ah, blame shifting. It must be racism, it can't be poverty. Shift the blame off the academic system of Harvard and Yale and their comfortable life. That is far too close to home for an academic to allow, so he must shift the blame.

Is racism a subset of poverty? or is poverty a subset of racism?

The question is very much in need of an answer. As it seems proposed cures to racism are to transfer money and the opportunity to earn it from whites to blacks. This argues that poverty is the real problem and that racism is a subset of poverty.

Shifting, many of the recent posts simply point out the racist thought processes in their declaration that they are better than ....
http://www.success.com/article/the-million-dollar-personal-success-plan
Develop supreme confidence in yourself and your own abilities.
or is the problem the attitude necessary to be a capitalist? Which would also argue that poverty is inexorably linked.

So back to: Is racism a subset of poverty? or is poverty a subset of racism?

Posted 8 days ago by Profile Gary CharpentierProject donor
On the whole I think we can safely say that since the UK is twice as densely populated compared to Germany and three times more densely populated than France then time those two countries played catch-up with us.

They do actually, especially Germany. When it comes to taking in refugees from Syria, Germany lets in ten thousand, and the UK? Eh, about 500 over a 3 year period. And then about another 1500-2000 a year in Asylum seekers.


....and there's been no backlash by the German people over this????

Of course not.

But the worry is Glenn, that if too many US big cities go bust, then the US goes bust, followed by the rest if the world ..... It can't all be down to the sub-prime mortgage business.

No it isn't. It is down to greedy politicians who refuse to use accrual accounting and insist on cash accounting, all so they can spend the money this year that should be earmarked for next year. Ask the old GM about their pension plan.
