Years ago, I interviewed four people for my film “Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control” – a topiary gardener, a lion tamer, a mole-rat photographer and a robot scientist. Around the same time I also interviewed Fred Leuchter, a designer of execution-equipment and a Holocaust denier. I had never intended to put Fred Leuchter with the others – even though they were filmed within days of each other. One editor tried to encourage me to mix them up in one mélange.
Julia Sheehan, my wife, argued against it, “Hitler is not a spice. When you put Hitler in the soup. It becomes Hitler-soup.”
There are some things in life that you do not do if you want to be a moral being and feel proud of what you have accomplished.
If GML was an infant, SGML is the bright youngster far exceeds expectations and made its parents too proud, but XML is the drug-addicted gang member who had committed his first murder before he had sex, which was rape.
This is either deliberately disingenuous...
When a black men gets angry about how he's treated, his anger does not contain hundreds of years of prejudice. (Feelings don't contain history.)
History of the structure of the test
In the early 1990s, the SAT consisted of six sections: Two math sections (scored together on a 200–800 scale), two verbal sections (scored together on a 200–800 scale), the Test of Standard Written English (scored on a 20–60+ scale), and an equating section. In 1994, the exam was modified, removing antonym questions, adding math questions that were not multiple choice, and allowing the use of a calculator for the first time. The average score on the 1994 modification of the SAT I was usually around 1000 (500 on the verbal, 500 on the math). The most selective schools in the United States (for example, those in the Ivy League) typically had SAT averages exceeding 1400 on the old test.
Beginning with the March 12, 2005 administration of the exam, the SAT Reasoning Test was modified and lengthened. Changes included the removal of analogy questions from the Critical Reading (formerly Verbal) section and quantitative comparisons from the Math section, and the inclusion of a writing section (with an essay) based on the former SAT II Writing Subject Test. The Mathematics section was expanded to cover three years of high school mathematics. [source]
