Condoleeza Rice getting very little headway in US diplomatic meetings

http://www.abcnews.go.com/WN/story?id=3728855

Rice speaks out against Russia's recent military actions. Russia is determined to be number one at all costs.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/14/washington/14cnd-turkey.html?_r=2&ref=us&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

Turks being pissed off about the US doing proper actions Morally.....sadly, the majority of US citizens probably do not know what their country is sacrificing to do so, and why.

condoleeza is such an hypocrit!!!! did she ever spoke of the new american bases at the border with russia? THAT'S the cause for the increase in tension, not the tupolevs over alaska.

Well I made a previous news bulletin, but even though no one responded, I still think its important to have a weekly chronology of events, in case things take a turn for the worse in politics, we have a bit of a timeline to work with. You know, politics and economics and world events are essential to a military forum, so I figured I'd keep a running weekly post.

ahh well, the SAT is a reasoning test used in the United States along with the ACT, I forget what they stand for, here is some info on the ACT

I will only take the real ACT, although takin the PSAT helps too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAT

oh and I don't know how Italian schools do it, but every quarter our grades are averaged and given a letter grade, and at our particular school that grade is averaged with the 2nd quarter's grade and makes up our semesterly report card. Colleges look at Junior year of High school primarly for students (I'm a junior now) and this quarter's report card didn't look so hot, although I did do good in History, English, and Morality.

lol... at school we have random oral questioning and written exercises. the number of tests is not fixed, it depends on the subject. each semester all the votes got in these tests are counted and you have the overall vote (from 1 to 10, but normally never less than 4 or more than 9)
if you have some results under 6 (usually on 3 or more subjects, but depends on their importance) you must repeat the school year (but often professors gives "political 6" to avoid troubles)

but... what's MORALITY?? you have to study morality??

SAT seems a lot complex... we have nothing similar in italy
tests on each subject, so each prof tests the students on what he had teached.
our system is hypotetically really good, but most teachers work too few... and many students don't learn anything. of course thatn depends on the school you've chosen
