Quote Of The Day

“It is particularly interesting that Crash illustrates one of the deep truths of models of statistical discrimination: The real social conflict is not between groups, but within groups. People who are below-average for their group make life worse for people who are above-average for their group. Women who get job training and then quit to have children hurt the careers of single-minded career women, because they reduce the profitability of the average woman. This lesson is beautifully expressed in the scene where the successful black t.v. producer (Terrence Howard) chews out the black teen-ager (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) who unsuccessfully tried to car-jack him:

You embarrass me. You embarrass yourself.

The upshot: If you really want to improve your group’s image, telling other groups to stop stereotyping won’t work. The stereotype is based on the underlying distribution of fact. It is far more realistic to turn your complaining inward, and pressure the bad apples in your group to stop pulling down the average”. — Economist Bryan Caplan, discussing the movie Crash

  • Have you seen the movie? What do you think?

  • Yeah, I watched it this weekend, it’s a pretty good movie.

  • I watched it this weekend, excellent movie. One observation I walked away with is that I never want to live in LA! It must be all that sunshine that makes people depressed. More seriously, I think the message had to do with dealing with personal prejudice. Everyone was victimized, sometimes by the least likely person. America is a very interesting social experiment. I wonder if it will work.

  • Not everyone was ‘the bad one’ though, one of my favorite parts of the movie was that this is one of the few movies where the Mexican (okay, latino) – and really only the latino – was the good guy, all throughout the movie. 🙂

    On a serious note, I do hope, strongly hope, that the American experiment will work. It will be a tragedy, not just for the United States, but for the world, if it does not.

  • I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
