Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Politics, personalities, but not principles...
Such is post-modern Amerika and its fascination with subjective morality and alternative truths.
And those who dare dissent invoke the critics' 10 year old response of name calling "racist" being the least offensive term so far.
I love it when the fraud is exposed, not that any learning is accomplished.

For the record: CU President Bruce Benson doesn't hold a master's degree, let alone a doctorate.

When they find such comparable, glaring weaknesses in their background.

Re: “Colorado lawmakers pass 'breakthrough' housing development bill

Require an "Engineered Foundation" and you solve 80 % of the Problems.

This means that Steel Rebar is used in the Concrete to strengthen the structure.

Also, a Soils Test for the Permit.

Denver/Boulder doesn't think much of statehood.

Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Not having a terminal degree isn't "made up." Not having any experience with a civilian US university, much less a large research-oriented one, isn't a made-up excuse. No experience in the arena of academic freedom, nor academic leadership without the benefit of rank, aren't made up excuses. A recent background of cutting, not expanding ,academic programs isn't made-up either. Could she adapt and lead without these primary qualifications? Maybe. Does UCCS want to take that chance when they have two other eminently qualified candidates who DO possess these qualifications and proven track records? We'll see. Many are just happy that she's leaving USAFA.

Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Although the last 8 years has politicized the upper echelons of our military officers I believe the majority still have a commitment to excellence and a deep understanding of our Constitution, things in short supply in most higher education. Most of the article is simply made up reasons to say no to a military Officer.

Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Interesting... It's pretty easy to "win people over" at USAFA when you outrank everyone and basically hold their career in your hands. You can make unilateral decisions (like decreasing the importance of academics cited above) and every will just salute smartly and say "great decision, general!" Not sure how that would go over at UCCS. Also interesting that she claims the unverifiable fact that she was offered a promotion and turned it down to stay at USAFA. Another alternative unverifiable fact is that she asked for a fifth year at USAFA and was turned down by the Pentagon. Might as well mention that as long as we're throwing around "alternative facts." Finally, her commitment to high quality education isn't that difficult to measure. During her tenure at USAFA, she's moved to decrease graduation academic requirements, cutting core courses (gen ed requirements) like English, Physics, Chem, and Engineering from the core curriculum while also cutting admin support (all but four dept secretaries are gone, down for 20 academic depts) in order to staff her public affairs machine that makes her look good (along with a new $360K office foyer) and spins her narrative. I half want to see her get this job, but only out of morbid curiosity.

Venkat Reddy is the obvious choice to replace Zalabak.

The other incidents were pedestrians clearly in the cross walk, with the right of way. In this case, as Dan May pointed out, Mel was jaywalking - not in the right of way.

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

It sure does look like favoritism.
An explanation that a member of the DA's office was on hand from the beginning sure doesn't explain why others have been charged while this man has not.
I'm sure Dierdorff is remorseful but that doesn't change what feels like harsher charges for others.

So, what did the person in the vehicle directly behind Dierdorff, who he was "racing" for the parking space, say about the incident? Seems he would have had the best view of what happened.

Re: “I-25 Gap Coalition formed to spur widening project

And we need to lobby the General Assembly to re-up the State's Economic Development Commission corporate welfare program for the members of the coalition to receive millions in taxpayer subsidies so they can then convene a study that show raising taxes is the only way to get the project paid for.
