For all the supposed potential of the "American Dream," immigrants in New York City often have a terrible time redeeming its promise. Many arrive in t...
Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that the "ends justify the means" for safer streets at any cost. Then why pull our punches and just stop with stop-and-frisk? In this spirit, let me "recommend" the following progressive crime-fighting tactics.
The motivation behind Schmidt's enterprise are the emerging societal needs that oceanography will be expected to address in the near future.
