USA women win gold! But you already knew that, didn't you? | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

The Olympics are one of the best spectacles that a sports fan can enjoy. Hell, they’re something that even non-sports fans love to watch. The idea of cheering on your countrymen and women as they compete for gold can be a truly thrilling experience. Unless, of course, you already know the outcome before the event airs.

In today’s modern world of the internet, television news, Twitter, and Facebook, the idea of keeping the results of the biggest sporting event in the world a secret for nearly half a day is ridiculous. Yet that seems to be exactly what NBC expects you to do by not airing any of the most popular events live during the day, instead saving them for their primetime coverage at 8 p.m. EST.

That’s right — Engling, a staff assistant for the House Administration Committee, is a ringer. He modeled for three years before quitting in 2011 to pursue a career in politics. During that time he could be seen in print-ad campaigns for Kohl’s, Carson Pirie Scott, Sears and American Crew, among others, and he also did a commercial for Subway....

Students Beware: For-Profit Colleges Cheat Students and Get Away With It

Students Beware: For-Profit Colleges Cheat Students and Get Away With It | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

Via Miami New Times:

 

After a two-year investigation, the Florida Office of the Attorney General recently agreed not to pursue charges against MedVance if the firm provided $600,000 in scholarships and free retraining to scores of students. Similar probes into other for-profit institutions of higher learning — Kaplan University, Everest Institute, the University of Phoenix, and Argosy University — are still open, with no sign of a resolution. If the MedVance settlement is a sign of what's to come for those investigations, the state's for-profit schools will get off with the deal of the century.

 

Across the country and in Florida, for-profit schools have been around for decades. Unlike traditional universities, they aren't responsible to the state board of regents or nonprofit overseers. They are inspected, but in some cases have as much in common with a huge car lot as with Harvard University.

 

One key to the business is student aid. To these schools, every American is worth around $117,000. That's the total amount each person is eligible for in government financial aid. Under federal regulations, for-profit schools are required to collect 10 percent of all tuition in cash; the rest can be financial aid. The industry makes roughly $30 billion a year off American taxpayers under this arrangement.

 

In order to get in on the gravy train, for-profit schools need accreditation only from some supposedly neutral body. But Congress neglected to indicate who should do that accrediting, resulting in a system loaded with charlatans. Some agencies are little more than rubber-stamp factories.

 

"It never occurred to [Congress] that [accreditation] would get corrupted," says Barmak Nassirian, a former official with the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. "This is basically a parasitic industry that is preying upon not just some of the most vulnerable members of our society, but [those] who are actually attempting to better themselves."

 

For-profit schools have been the target of increasing scrutiny, if little corrective action. In August 2010, an official from the U.S. Government Accountability Office testified before Congress about investigations into 15 schools. The agency had sent in undercover applicants and reviewed finances. The results were maddening.

 

"Admissions or financial aid representatives at all 15 for-profit colleges provided our undercover applicants with deceptive or otherwise questionable statements," GAO Managing Director Gregory Kutz testified. "These... included information about the colleges' accreditation, graduation rates, and its students' prospective employment and salary qualifications."

 

The agency also discovered that for-profit institutions had greatly inflated costs. "We found that tuition in 14 out of 15 cases, regardless of degree, was more expensive at the for-profit college than at the closest public colleges," Kutz testified...

Yahoo Sports: 'How The Marlins' Jeffrey Loria and David Samson conned Miami'

Yahoo Sports: 'How The Marlins' Jeffrey Loria and David Samson conned Miami' | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

Via Yahoo Sports:

 

Here is how the con worked.

 

The Florida Marlins owners whined, and they brayed, and they swore up and down that they couldn't afford the new stadium necessary to raise their payroll from embarrassing levels and compete annually. And they got it, the vast majority on the taxpayer's teat no less, this gleaming new gem from which they would fatten their pockets by taking all of the ticket and concession and parking and advertising sales, every last cent, no matter how unseemly that felt.

 

To allay fears, they changed their name to the Miami Marlins, their colors to a rainbow vomiting, their image to reflect the city, hot enough that the New Yorker would profile them and Showtime would broadcast a documentary on them and free agents Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell would take the money. People actually bought into the thing, recognized them as a real team and not just some affiliate run by a couple of swindlers who had already screwed Montreal and were primed to do the same to another city.

 

It wasn't ever going to end any other way. You knew that. You knew. When Jeffrey Loria and David Samson are involved, it can't end any other way, because they know no different. Loria is the owner of the Marlins, Samson the president, and they're turning the Miami Marlins into a chop shop. Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante were traded first this week, to the Tigers. Then Hanley Ramirez, who until this year Loria regarded as the franchise, to the Dodgers. Next could be Josh Johnson, their homegrown ace.

 

That would be $32.75 million shed within a week, bringing the Marlins from their $100 million dream back to the bottom quarter of payrolls in baseball.


And Miami is stuck with $2.4 billion in stadium debt service for that.


This would be falling-down funny if it weren't so very sad. Two charlatans, ripping off a major American city and laughing all the way to the bank.

 

Here is how they perpetuate the con...
