To be fair, I've had Indian professors and they do seem to be
quite bright. But it seems that over the years they have
gradually taken over the majority of positions at many American
universities. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to deny the
universities the ability to hire the best-qualified applicants,
but surely there are Americans who are perfectly qualified for
the positions in question. I suspect along with "diversity"
considerations, one reason Indian professors and scientists
are preferred is because they are willing to work for much less.
The same goes for Chinese, they have also flooded American
universities and companies.

Here is something that might be of interest. I live on the
Mexican border in South Texas where the vast majority of the
population is hispanic. Years ago the hispanic advocacy
groups began whining that there were not enough universities
in the region, so the state of Texas said okay and built some
including TAMIU in my city. TAMIU's enrollment is majority
latino, though others attend as well. Later the same advocacy
groups began whining that there were not enough hispanics with
Ph.D.'s and suggested that it was a lack of Ph.D. programs at
those South Texas universities. So the Texas legislature allotted
money to fund Ph.D. programs including one at TAMIU. While
the Ph.D. program has not yet begun operating, it has received
tons of applications. The one catch is that to be admitted
to a Ph.D. program you need to pass a certification test to
make sure you are qualified. Now no one is supposed to know
this, but they administered the test and almost no hispanics
were able to pass it, therefore they are ineligible for
admission to TAMIU. The ones who did pass were almost all
Indians and Chinese. So after spending all that public money
ostensibly to benefit the hispanic community, all it winds
up benefitting are foreign Indians and Chinese. This little
fact is being kept secret, partially out of embarassment and
partially because it will raise questions on why public money
is being spent to educate foreigners. If you don't believe
it, I urge you to contact TAMIU and demand they release the
information under the Texas Open Records law.

Even though I generally find you to be an arrogant, bombastic and rude
individual, you are usually accurate...and this post hit the bulls-eye.

Among the simpler things to do is to measure the heat of formation
of some compound that has not been measured. There are lots of
them. The easiest way is to use a bomb calorimeter, and I am
sure IIT has one. You will spend a great deal of time learning
the techniques till you get a set of good and consistent measurements.

what makes it worse is that the "civilized West" is kinda cancelling
its intellectual evolution (what else can cause two US presidents with
a sub 100 IQ in the past 20 years?) by making the real stimulation for
intellectual growth only available to the very well filled wallets,
thereby reducing the amount of talented youngsters available for the
evolution process to "rich talented kids", where the motivation to
indeed intellectually grow for a spoiled rich bratt is only a fraction
of what a "normal intelligent kid with plans for a better future" has.

One more generation and the western rich party animals with an IQ just
below toast pay intelligent far east ppl to keep the world turning,
white dummies to do work that would be too expensive to get robots to
do and lobotomized fighting machines as a private army to make sure
the status quo is maintained.

Dang.. too late... it is reality allready!

First, be not discouraged by "historians." Their fate is already
sealed...to ponder, catalogue, and explain the genius of others.
