Yale Law - Comments on Immigration Overhaul needs
This was an excellent talk outlining field research completed in Fall 2013 on both the US side and the Mexico side in areas of high emigration. Main points include that as long as the 8:1 earnings disparity exists and US employers are hiring, economic considerations will lead rational wage earners to head to the US to work. Land border between US and Mexico is the deadliest in the world with over 23 times the number of people killed at the Berlin Wall - but they still make it to US jobs. Law makers would do well to understand the futility of policies designed to prevent and/or punish immigration from Mexico as long as 8:1 earning disparity exist, but could get tax revenues to offset the costs if it would make pathways to legal residency and calibrate work permits to market demand for unskilled labor.
Would be a five-star presentation if could have seen slides recferred to in talk; hard to follow without seeing slides.
I love the idea of this app. I hate it's implementation. It is difficult to find courses by category; lectures on literature, for example. Even harder to only find audio or only video courses.
Worse, it slows my phone to a crawl when downloading anything. Even browsing the courses takes seemingly forever.
Downloads will halt without providing a reason. Try to download more than three lectures at a time and - the phone freezes. Always.
Once a course is downloaded, navigation is still almost impossible. To see other lectures in one course, you need to turn on 'subscription' or it will appear to be empty.
I wish it was a better app.
Yeah another miserably bleached app by apple!!!
I can't believe how stupidely impractical this app actually is... It is really as if whoever sat on his keyboard to produce this never actually used it... You'd think that someone at apple might have the thought that a 'U' might mean wanting to associate time bookmarks in presentation, or even just tags with the couses.... nope, not apple, because what they do is already beyond perfection as it is. Nothing they do is ever properly finished.
The only saving grace is the contents... which apple FORTUNATELY has nothing to do with!! 6 * for the contents providers!
Update: i dont get the number of 5 stars... Many of them are actually pointing at the contents as worthy of the stars, DESPITE of the app... Not thanks to the app.
