US colleges look to foreign students
Associated Press, by Justin Pope

Original Article

Posted By:chicodon, 11/12/2012 10:55:08 AM

Ann Arbor, Mich. - Want to see how quickly the look and business model of American public universities are changing? Visit a place like Indiana University. Five years ago, there were 87 undergraduates from China on its idyllic, All-American campus in Bloomington. This year: 2,224. New figures out Monday show international enrollment at U.S. colleges and universities grew nearly 6 percent last year, driven by a 23-percent increase from China, even as total enrollment was leveling out. But perhaps more revealing is where much of the growth is concentrated: big, public land-grant colleges, notably in the Midwest.

Foreign students contribute $22.7 billion to the economy. Indiana charges in-state students $10,034 for tuition and non-residents $31,484. Its a no-brainer as far as the Universities are concerned. Capitalism at its best. At least the local students have the opportunity to play football, basketball and party. /s

Rural Maine high schools are also courting Asian students who pay handsome tuitions.

All driving the costs for local students and their families up dramatically - well, that is for those who still pay for their own education.

As far as ´capitalism at it´s best´, it´s never good when governments are involved and paying the bills. It PERVERTS capitalism.

Good idea. Fill the engineering grad schools with Chinese and Indian students.
Who needs engineers, anyway?

I had alot of years of experience dealing with foreign students, and they can be trouble - they claim to have financial guarantees when they apply, but when they arrive, they put great pressures on the school for financial support. And, often, the school caves in.
When I was an administrator, I had one nigerian student with a wife and eight children, sitting outside my office every morning, waiting for me in order to beg for more money. I became cynical after a time.

I teach at Indiana University´s main campus in Bloomington. We are simply overwhelmed by the number of international, specifically Asian (China, Korea) students. Too many are deficient in English-language skills, too many choose not to assimilate into campus culture (so why are they here), too many come from wealthy families back home and come just to party, and, worst of all, they are squeezing out local Indiana kids out of the chance to enroll at their state university at a reasonable, in-state price. I have spoken to our President McRobbie (native Aussie) about this, and he is deaf to the interests of our taxpayers. Outreach to Asia is important----IU has historically been active in this area---but our chartered mission is suffering. The main campus is identified as "IU-B", with "B" meaning, "Bloomington". Nowadays, IUB stands for, IU-Beijing.
Lest any resident trolls accuse me of racism, I would say, #1, I work daily with our Asian students to assist them in maximizing their experience here, and #2, stuff it, you liberal bigots and hypocrites.

Good point, #5. Yesterday, posted article that China is moving way forward with getting their people to the Moon by 2020. With our stolen technology, it only seems wise that we supply the education to use it./S

In the middle of a major economic slowdown, the dRATS want to concede our engineering slots to other countries, then complain when companies and jobs move there?

Now why would foreign students be willing to pay $35,000/year to go to school here when they can go to school in some other country for $2,000-$10,000? Because they get to stay here afterwards and join the illegal alien workforce.

When a foreign student comes here, he or she is supposed to pay the full out of state tuition rate to attend public colleges. But once here, when the foreign student violates his or her student status, he or she then becomes an illegal alien and is entitled in many places to only pay the much lower in-state tuition rate. Since the Obama crew will not deport illegal aliens who are attending school in the USA, why should not more and more foreign students seek out that loophole?

President Obama is expected to nominate former Pentagon lawyer Jeh Johnson as the next Homeland Security secretary, ABC News has learned. The Department of Homeland Security has been without a Senate-confirmed leader for six weeks, and from the start some Republicans were calling on the administration to "swiftly" nominate a new secretary. The White House has largely ignored such calls, as DHS has moved forward with top-agenda items even through the government shutdown. But now an announcement nominating Johnson is expected Friday afternoon, sources told

If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home. But the one place where a full-scale shutdown is being enforced is in America’s alleged

Vienna - The UN nuclear watchdog has received a request from Russia to assess the impact if a missile were to hit a small Syrian reactor and is considering the issue, the Vienna-based agency said on Friday. Russia said this week a military strike on Syria could have catastrophic effects if the research reactor near Damascus that contains radioactive uranium was struck, "by design or by chance". It called on the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to urgently assess the risk as the United States considers military action to punish Syria´s government for an alleged gas attack.

Sacramento — California lawmakers Wednesday advanced a dozen gun-control measures, including background checks for ammunition buyers, and gave early approval to a tax penalty on the Boy Scouts for barring openly gay leaders. Legislators also voted for a new $75 charge on real estate transactions to pay for affordable-housing projects. Mass shootings such as the one in Newtown, Conn., in December spurred Democratic lawmakers to look for ways to tighten California´s gun laws, already some of the toughest in the nation.

The case of the phantom ballots:

Posted By: chicodon- 2/24/2013 1:06:22 PM     Post Reply
The first phantom absentee ballot request hit the Miami-Dade elections website at 9:11 p.m. Saturday, July 7. The next one came at 9:14. Then 9:17. 9:22. 9:24. 9:25. Within 2½ weeks, 2,552 online requests arrived from voters who had not applied for absentee ballots. They streamed in much too quickly for real people to be filling them out. They originated from only a handful of Internet Protocol addresses. And they were not random. It had all the appearances of a political dirty trick, a high-tech effort by an unknown hacker to sway three key Aug. 14 primary elections,

Panetta was answering questions from Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) when he made it clear he had no communication with Obama outside the normal, "pre-scheduled" 5 p.m. meeting on September 11. When asked if Obama at least called to check in as the attack unfolded Panetta said "No." When asked if anyone from the White House called that night, Panetta said "No." According to Panetta, the President trusted that

Washington - It´s not just the economy, stupid. It´s the demographics - the changing face of America. The 2012 elections drove home trends that have been embedded in the fine print of birth and death rates, immigration statistics and census charts for years. America is rapidly getting more diverse, and, more gradually, so is its electorate. Nonwhites made up 28 percent of the electorate this year, compared with 20 percent in 2000. Much of that growth is coming from Hispanics. The trend has worked to the advantage of President Barack Obama two elections in a row now and is not lost on Republicans

Banging on pots, tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Argentina yesterday to protest against a possible third term for President Cristina Kirchner. "Yes to democracy, no to re-election" chanted the flag-waving demonstrators, who also took issue with rampant corruption and crime in the South American country. (Snip) She succeeded her husband, Nestor, who died of a heart attack in 2010. She is currently barred by the Argentine constitution from running for a third consecutive term in 2015, but her supporters in congress have been lobbying for a constitutional amendment.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

"My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
