Did you even bother to check the link?
There is no link for "programs".
These work, however.
With hundreds of students across the United States, and three majors
to choose from -- Social Science, Arts & Letters, and Liberal Studies
-- our student body is as diverse as our course offerings.
By the way, 'information' and 'review' are the correct
spellings for the words you misspelled, "Doctor".

San Francisco State University, however, has the good sense to employ actual California State Police to protect the students. Those officers are helpful, friendly, courteous, and they mind their own fucking business.
A man whose bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test has lost an appeal in his federal lawsuit against the city.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s decision that the city did not discriminate against Robert Jordan because the same standards were applied to everyone who took the test.
“This kind of puts an official face on discrimination in America against people of a certain class,” Jordan said today from his Waterford home. “I maintain you have no more control over your basic intelligence than your eye color or your gender or anything else.”
He said he does not plan to take any further legal action.
Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.
Most Cops Just Above Normal
The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average.
Jordan alleged his rejection from the police force was discrimination. He sued the city, saying his civil rights were violated because he was denied equal protection under the law.
But the U.S. District Court found that New London had “shown a rational basis for the policy.” In a ruling dated Aug. 23, the 2nd Circuit agreed. The court said the policy might be unwise but was a rational way to reduce job turnover.
Jordan has worked as a prison guard since he took the test.
First of all, it’s a little stupid to claim that because he scored too high on the intelligence test, he would get bored with police work. There is so much wrong with this…I’m just going to jump in it in no specific order.
1) How do they know he would get bored? This sounds more like a psychological profile than it does a limitation on intelligence. In fact, maybe because he’s so intelligent, he would actually like the job better and perform better than his peers. Maybe that’s what the police in New York (and their terrorist union organization) are afraid of?
2) Being smart does not mean you’re automatically going to get bored with being a police officer. Highly intelligent people often like doing monotonous work because it takes their mind off of constant thinking and challenge. It allows them to relax a little. Being smart is not a toy they play with - it’s who they are inside 24/7. It can be a burden. You see, it contrasts their personality which makes this type of work such a nice fit. Occasionally, the job may provide opportunities to utilize those special talents that he has. To me, turning this man down for having such a high intelligence is equivalent to turning a man down because he has x-ray vision. Like the court said, “it’s not wise”.
3) High intelligence should be a prerequisite for ANYONE who has the purported authority to arrest, imprison, assault, and kill you. That one is a no-fucking-brainer.
4) If they’re using psychology to evaluate police officers, yet so many are prone to failure, corruption and criminal behavior, perhaps their psychological exams are complete bullshit? Or maybe they want bad people to be cops. Though, it’s worth pointing out that psychology and psychiatry are NOT sciences.
5) You’ve got to have a raging, steroid brute sometimes, don’t you? Unfortunately, it seems we have mostly brutes for police officers and very few of them with brains. After all, police departments operate like businesses. Having too many intelligent people on board is bad for business because it reduces waste. “Waste” in this conversation is better described as “surplus funding”.
6) The guy said that most officers score just above the national average. Please take into consideration that it’s the only answer they CAN give. Consider what it would look like if they said “Most of our officers score below the average”. Of course, that would be embarrassing. They can’t actually say “most our officers score well above the average” because then we would all know they are liars. They can’t say “We show the same average as the rest of the country” because that would still be less than impressive. Their response that the average intelligence of their police officers is just a little above the national average says that they’re not anxious to improve that rating and that they seem to be content with a mediocre score.
Personally, I think they’re lying. It’s always about the money.

He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
(King James Version)
It's illegal for the poor to even sleep.
You can miss a few meals, but how long can you go without sleep?
The solution is not to round up all the poor and coral them into close quarter where they are likely to all turn against each other. It would be more merciful to simply but them all out of their misery faster.
Portland police covered up victims 911 calls and emergency visits to the OHSU hospital and local news media is mums the word on this.
I hereby challenge Denis C. Theriault, to spend thirty consecutive days and night, sleeping outside. You can spend some time in a shelter if you prefer, but at least one week of the 4.3 in the park, or in doorways, or on a porch somewhere, might be the most comfortable. No cheating by going into the office to clean up or to take a dump. You can eat at the Blanche House, St Francis Dining Hall, or the like, but you can't start out carrying any money at all. Most importantly, when you get harassed by the pigs, there's no telling them that you're a journalist, because you're NOT.
