freedom of speech on campus

https://www.thefire.org/campus-rights/

Freedom of speech is a fundamental American freedom and a human right, and there’s no place that this right should be more valued and protected than America’s colleges and universities. A university exists to educate students and advance the frontiers of human knowledge, and does so by acting as a “marketplace of ideas” where ideas compete. The intellectual vitality of a university depends on this competition—something that cannot happen properly when students or faculty members fear punishment for expressing views that might be unpopular with the public at large or disfavored by university administrators. Nevertheless, freedom of speech is under continuous threat at many of America’s campuses, pushed aside in favor of politics, comfort, or simply a desire to avoid controversy. As a result, speech codes dictating what may or may not be said, “free speech zones” confining college free speech to tiny areas of campus, and administrative attempts to punish or repress campus free speech on a case-by-case basis are common today in academia.

California Public Schools Hijacked K-12

On a state wide level, the entire public educational system has been hijacked by the California Teachers Association, legislators, and bureaucrats who seek to eliminate basic parental rights and to replace parents in this country seek to instill in their children.

The errant classification of biblical worldview on homosexuality as “hatred and ignorance” has spiraled into an aggressive theme of intolerance within the California public school system toward Christians.

For many years, the vast majority of Christian teachers, administrators, and parents have failed to adequately influence public education on a statewide level. During the last decade, in particular, we have seen a radical departure from traditional values in public schools.

As we look toward the future, it has become clear that after
years of strategic maneuvering, enemies of faith and family have
gained an unprecedented stronghold within the public school system
through unconscionable legislation and domination by the California
Teachers Association (CTA), a union representing California
teachers, counselors, psychologists, nurses, and community college
professors. Boasting a membership of 325,000, the CTA is one of
the most powerful political groups in California.

Recently, the CTA has closely allied itself with radical organizations promoting “gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and questioning” issues. “Gender liberation” will likely be the new vogue term used to describe the tidal wave that is fast approaching the shores of the California public school system.

SB 48 is a new California law that requires all KW12 public schools, including charter schools, to include teachings that positively portray homosexual, bisexual, and transgendered individuals in the history social sciences. The historyWsocial sciences curriculum under the framework of the California Department of Education includes the study of history, geography, civics, and economics

The ultimate effect is that textbooks will be rewritten, and students will be given supplemental materials that focus on the homosexual preferences of prominent persons in social sciences. Publishers will now be
obligated to rewrite textbooks, replacing prominent figures with more obscure persons solely for the purpose of acknowledging people within the LGBT community.

Cunningly titled the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act, SB 48 is an effort to rewrite history for the purpose of providing a platform for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transsexuals. The Act was authored by homosexual State Senator Mark Leno and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, and it became effective on January 1, 2012. SB 48 requires all public schools to begin emphasizing LGBT individuals throughout history, even for children in kindergarten. The sponsors of the law were Equality California and GayWStraight Alliance Network—organizations that seem to have unfettered political access in the State Capitol.

Moreover, the law forbids curriculum from including any “sectarian or denominational doctrine or propaganda contrary to law.” In other words, a Christian—or virtually any other religious worldview on the subjects of gender and sexual orientation—must be silenced. This body of law clearly censors any view that refuses to endorse homosexual and bisexual conduct.

The last twenty-five years have been particularly devastating
in regard to parental rights in California. The legal principle
that parents have a fundamental right to raise their children is
substantially ignored in California law, which often gives public
schools priority over parents in educating children, in administering
medical treatment, and in providing mental health counseling.

Not only can a child receive a confidential abortion, but a
minor who is 12 years of age or older and who may have come into
contact with an infectious, contagious, or communicable disease
may consent to medical care related to the diagnosis or treatment
of the disease, if the disease or condition is one that is required by
law or regulation to be reported to the local health officer or is a
sexually transmitted disease. Ultimately, California law has created
a scenario where children may be infected with serious diseases
and receive treatment for those diseases without the parents ever
knowing that their child is sick. It is ironic that although California
law prohibits children from drinking alcohol under age 21, it allows
children to request and receive treatment for sexually transmitted
diseases.

As current educational policies discussed previously
demonstrate, not only have schools pushed religion out of the public
school system, but they have become increasingly hostile toward
students and teachers who espouse Christian views.

If children are in middle school or high school (or in districts
that have adopted comprehensive sexual health education, in
elementary school), parents can ask the teachers to see the materials
presented during sex education courses. They can also legally
demand, in writing, that their children opt out of sex educationm
however, the right to opt out of sex education does not apply to
content relating to discrimination education. Forms can be requested

毛豆语录

晚上吃饭,毛毛兴奋的唱Joy to the world。

突然弟弟拿手试图捂住姐姐的口

姐姐转头继续唱

弟弟还是要捂她口

我开始有点儿生气

不过应为反应慢,没发作

我想也许有原因吧

我就问豆豆:为什么要捂姐姐口?

豆豆说:姐姐开始有一个地方唱错了!我想让她重新唱!

原来如此。。。

姐姐就又从头唱,但是弟弟也没发现错误。这下老实了。

not enough

毛毛的朋友们来我们家sleep over,昨天玩了一天。结果毛毛却是很不爽。跟最好朋友的关系好像出了问题。

吃饭聊天的时候才知道她冲朋友发火了。

据说sarah早上想吃热狗。她不让。说不够了。//热狗确实是给爷爷吃的。也确实不多了。

我一听气就不打一处使。

不够,不够,总是说不够。

上次从sarah家拿回来一堆蛋糕,当晚姥爷拿了一块出来吃。她就嚷嚷不要吃完了!

有一次在外面玩,sophie说口渴,我把瓶子拿出来给她,毛毛说要没有了!拿个饼干给豆豆吃,毛毛说别吃完了!

为什么总是别人吃点儿东西,她就觉得不够了呢?

也许因为姥姥太节俭的缘故?总不让她用这个用那个?

无论如何,这个毛病得想办法改过来才行。

怎么办呢?

毛豆语录

有一天开车送毛豆毛

毛毛突然问:爸爸,我有一个问题

我说,啥?

毛毛:我们都是神的儿女。为什么又说耶稣是神的独生子啊?

我。。。。

我说This is a good question!

我说我也不知道怎么回答。

前几天听唐崇荣的讲道正好讲到这个。耶稣从起先就又神所生,独一的。而我们是借着信耶稣得以和他成为一体,同为后嗣,同享基业。

昨天学完画画和Sophie家一起吃subway。我俩独自祷告。毛毛问我祷告什么了?我说祷告今晚妈妈带着豆豆平安来教会。毛毛说你要为Sonoma的人祷告,我刚刚给他们祷告了。老爹又是羞愧又是欣喜。

效率为王

事情总是做不完

每天早上醒来脑子里就开始想各种没做完的事情,睡不好觉

睡不好觉就头晕脑胀没有力气

头晕脑胀没力气就没法好好干活

没法好好干活儿就有更多的事情做不完

成了恶性循环

所以必须得跳出这个模式了

而跳出这个模式的关键就是效率

前几天Alphago zero横空出世

这个版本的厉害之处就是更少的资源,更少的迭代,更少的时间就可以达到相同的高度。不仅如此,因为效率的极大提升,它可以达到更高的高度。

而效率的提升主要源于算法的改进。

回头再说程序员。程序员之所以薪水比其他行业高很多是因为生产效率高很多。

效率的关键则是程度和电脑或说是机器的使用。

那如何提高工作的效率呢?

其实就是尽量把手工的事情程序化。让程序帮你做。

现在明白什么叫误人子弟了

人类的经验在电脑面前都是渣

看了一下论文

发现进化的动力是MCTS

模拟对局,每一步搜索选点,最终胜负观测值,然后作为数据更新网络

这个网络根据棋局预测选点和价值评估

中间不知道调了什么参数,进化速度竟然那么快。几百万对局就就超过master

现在觉得算法似乎也挺重要的
