US Map compares education levels with other countries state by state - The Sad State of Education

What Happens When Each State Is Renamed According to Its Education Level

Americans like to think they are #1 in everything, but when it comes to education, the U.S. quickly loses boasting rights. Math and science are particularly rough: U.S. ranks 28th in the world for those subjects. Although we may be a developed nation, when education is broken down by state, we aren't all that different from countries that are more economically challenged.

HomeSnacks.com used information from the U.S. high school graduation rates from the U.S. Census and compared them against the education index of each country from the United Nations Development Program.

The result? A map of the U.S. with each state renamed as the country that resembles their level of education.

Boeing CEO pitches F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet to India


US aircraft maker Boeing Co is in a “conversation” on manufacturing its F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet in India, Chief Executive Officer Dennis Muilenburg was quoted on Wednesday as saying on his first visit to the country.

“We see the Super Hornet as an opportunity … to tie directly into the ‘Make in India’ strategy,” Muilenburg told the Hindustan Times in an interview whose authenticity was confirmed by the company. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ drive is designed to expand India’s industrial base.

Boeing was willing to back the project with billions of dollars in investment to India meet its operational needs, according to Muilenburg’s comments in the interview.


I tried to find this on a US media site, but nothing. No mention of this in our media. We are now outsourcing the Military Industrial Complex.

At one time, you could trust what was posted on DU to be solid

If it wasn't it would get ripped to shreds in a matter of minutes.

Even in the decisive campaigns on 2008 and 2012 and other times, it was fairly well trustworthy information posted on DU. The last several months it has become a big propaganda machine and you can't trust most of what is posted. The integrity is gone.

I post this here because anywhere else the parties that have polluted this discussion board would attack it as they do.

Rant off!

Biggest fucking military in the world, yet "More is needed"

More Is Needed to Beat ISIS, U.S. Military Concludes

WASHINGTON — Pentagon officials have concluded that hundreds more trainers, advisers and commandos from the United States and its allies will need to be sent to Iraq and Syria in the coming months as the campaign to isolate the Islamic State intensifies.

In meetings with President Obama’s national security team in recent weeks, military officials have told the White House that they believe they have made significant progress in the fight against the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, administration officials said. But to deal a lasting blow to the extremist Sunni militancy, also known as ISIS and ISIL, they believe that additional forces will be needed to work with Iraqi, Kurdish and Syrian opposition fighters on the ground in the two countries.

In the past, the Pentagon’s requests for additional troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan have been met with skepticism by Mr. Obama, and his aides have said he has resented what he has regarded as efforts to pressure him. But the rise of the Islamic State has alarmed the White House, and a senior administration official said Thursday that the president is willing to consider raising the stakes in both Iraq and Syria.

Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, in an interview last week with CNN in Davos, Switzerland, emphasized the limited role he anticipated American forces to play. “We’re looking for opportunities to do more,” Mr. Carter said, but added, “We’re not looking to substitute for local forces in terms of governing the place and policing the place.”
