I love the diffuse associative power of music... to take you back to whole periods of your life not just single events. All thanks to the way music can permeate all areas of your life (through the humble mp3 player etc Wink) and associate with anything. Like now I've just bought an anthems compilation album 'Lost In Trance' for the sake of nostalgia... since I don't listen to trance much anymore... and different songs are taking me back to whole distinct periods of my life... school, college, first job etc. I love that effect of music.

See, that's the thing - eagles aren't actually bald, so the name 'Bald Eagle' isn't accurate.  But if you've got an armadillo that's hairy and screaming at you, you know EXACTLY what you're dealing with.

Your url where you tried to post it had an errant 'http://' tacked onto the end.

Code:

It should have been:

Quote:MYTH NO. 4

Equality of opportunity is all people need to climb the economic ladder.

No moral intuition is more hard-wired into Americans’ concept of economic justice than equality of opportunity. The reason Americans tolerate higher levels of income inequality is because of our faith that we all have a fair chance at achieving the American Dream or becoming the next Bill Gates. “In America we stand for equality,” writes Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute, a leading defender of the morality of capitalism. “But for the large majority of us, this means equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome.” In a 2015 New York Times poll on income inequality, 35 percent of Americans said they believed everyone has “a fair chance to get ahead.”

But while the United States has made great strides in removing legal barriers to equal opportunity, at least half the difference in income between any two people is determined by their parents, either through inherited traits like intelligence, good looks, ambition and reliability (nature), or through the quality and circumstances of their upbringing and education (nurture). As our society has become more meritocratic, we’ve simply replaced an aristocracy based on title, class, race and gender with a new and equally persistent aristocracy based on genes, education and parenting. Unless we are prepared to engage in extensive genetic reengineering, or require that all children be brought up in state-run boarding schools, we must acknowledge that we can never achieve full equality of opportunity.
