"Managing The Decay"

The title is a quote from the Newtster about "Mr. Bain's Operational Excellence"-lol, the inventor of scorched Earth gives some of the best quotes!

Major diversity issues at UC Berkeley's Engineering program.

Many of the Chancellors etc say they don't care about rankings other than THE's and Shanghai's but anyway, there's this: in rankings published Tuesday by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UC San Diego finished seventh, ninth and 10th

for more on 'He's pretty good... at managing the decay'

the more one thinks about it- this falls right in line - Yudof sees himself as manager of a cemetery ... so, Cal's hire of a firm based on someone who manages decay falls right in line...

We need people who are interested in managing Restoration (btw a good robert downey movie).
