Fixing China’s Coal Problem

Good news, which I am surprised about, for cleaning of China's Coal.

China is actually reducing the pollution through scrubbing technology for power plants that use coal, as well as discouraging the home use of coal for heating.

Why does this matter? China is the biggest burner of coal in the world, and probably burns as much coal as the rest of the world combined.  China has a huge pollution issue that is impacting the health of it's people, and causing social unrest.

More Immigrants from China than Mexico

I am surprised:

2013 US Immigrants

China - 147,000
Mexico - 125,000
India - 129,000

Supposedly, this can be both legal and illegal, and data is per the census. But, it may under count non-legal immigration.

Asian American Lawsuit against Ivy League Admissions

64 organizations filed a discrimination suit against Harvard, with the US Education Dept.

At Cal Tech which is race neutral, 46% of under-graduates are Asian. In the Ivy League, 21%. UC Berkeley is at least 42%, may be over 50% when International students are included.

Asians have to score for Harvard Admissions:

  • 140 points higher than white students
  • 270 points higher than Hispanic students
  • 450 points higher than African-American

Good statistics.
Harvard Accused of Bias Against Asian-Americans - WSJ

Yes, next question.
Do Ivy League schools have a 'bamboo ceiling' on admissions? - China Daily USA

A good read, sad, but believable.

Side note, so how would you hide the amount of Asian attending UC Berkeley?

By listing ethnicity by country background! And break out International as a separate category. Note this is not done for Hispanics...
