The Utter Uselessness of Job Interviews - NYTimes.com

In 1979, for example, the Texas Legislature required the University of Texas Medical School at Houston to increase its incoming class size by 50 students late in the season. The additional 50 students that the school admitted had reached the interview phase of the application process but initially, following their interviews, were rejected. A team of researchers later found that these students did just as well as their other classmates in terms of attrition, academic performance, clinical performance (which involves rapport with patients and supervisors) and honors earned.

I’ve got just two articles remaining in this series I’ve titled “Why I Am Not…” Week by week I am describing why I have rejected some theological positions in favor of others and my purpose is not so much to persuade as it is to explain.

Why I Am Not Egalitarian

There is a story behind every position I hold and each of these articles tells one of those stories. I have already told why I am not atheist, Roman Catholic, liberal, Arminian, paedobaptist, or dispensational. Today I want to tell why I am not egalitarian. I ought to begin with a couple of key definitions. Egalitarianism is “the theological view that not only are all people equal before God in their personhood, but there are no gender-based limitations of what functions or roles each can fulfill in the home, the church, and the society.” GOREY: The Secret Lives of Edward Gorey. Redefining Investing for Women. Economist. IF YOU had heard it on one of Yangon’s chaotic streets you would have paid it little mind.

It would have been a euphonious whisper swiftly lost in a cacophonous torrent. But in the pre-dawn quiet of the monastery it was as piercing as an air-raid siren. Shortly before 4am a monk struck two gongs, one about a second after the other. They sounded two different notes, the second just short of a fourth higher than the first. Then, pausing for a few seconds, the monk struck the gongs again. The monastery began to stir: soft footsteps and the rustling of clothes—no voices. The silence of this monastery, like most silence outside the fanciest anechoic chambers, is an aspiration rather than a fact. But the silence of not speaking, as opposed to that of not hearing, persists. Hello. Boys' Life - Google Books. HQ Delta Xl Single Line Kite l Shadeonme.

The Best Scotch to Buy on a Budget

Unlike some other spirits, it has an air of prestige, like you can't belong to the club of true connoisseurs unless you have oodles of cash to dole out on rare bottlings and have a smoking jacket or two hanging in your closet. Scotch really is one of the most expensive drinks out there. Luckily, as a member of the general booze media, I've had the opportunity to explore a ton of Scotch this month, attending portfolio tastings of Speyside-based Balvenie, the new super-exclusive Rare Cask from The Macallan, and the all-star Whisky Extravaganza in Chicago where dozens of brands like Lagavulin, Glenlivet, and Bowmore shared samples of their best products.

It's been a delicious, but disheartening experience, as one clear truth has come to light through the process: Scotch really is one of the most expensive drinks out there. Scotch on a Budget. I love Scotch.
