191<p>&#8220;Only 27 days are left to raise the debt limit and prevent the government from defaulting on its borrowings for the first time in U.S. history, an event that could devastate world markets.&#8221; &#8211; <a href="http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/07/us-usa-tax-debt-talks-idUSTRE7666U720110707">Reuters</a>, 7 July 2011<br /><a name='more'></a></p>
192<p>Let me get this straight. Unless congress raises the limit on our national debt, we can&#8217;t pay our bills. And when that happens, we fail to meet international financial obligations. Which means the world freaks out, and possibly stops lending us money. And since we operate mostly on borrowed money anyway, the implications for our day-to-day operations are grim. So the government might devalue our money, printing a ton of it, and making it worth less and less, just so we can pay back international debts. And it just gets worse from there.</p>
193<p>Well, I don&#8217;t know how to get us out of this situation right now. Obviously, we have to raise the ceiling. Doing so should probably include some provisions toward reducing our debt, or else we just keep raising it forever. So if you work for the government and are seeking inspiration on how we can bring in more revenue and/or spend less of it, here&#8217;s the Spark Notes version:</p>

195<p><b>Tax outrageous income.</b><br />The <a href="http://www.forbes.com/static/execpay2005/rank.html">CEO of Dell makes $38 million</a>. Yahoo, $230 million. Wells Fargo, $53 million. The average Pennsylvanian <a href="http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet/GRTTable?_bm=y&amp;-_box_head_nbr=R1901&amp;-ds_name=ACS_2008_1YR_G00_&amp;-_lang=en&amp;-format=US-30&amp;-CONTEXT=grt">in 2008</a> made $50 thousand per year. That&#8217;s $0.05 million. The <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/07/opinion/07kristof.html?src=ISMR_AP_LO_MST_FB">upper 1% makes more money than the lower 90% in America</a>. Yet, last I checked, the highest U.S. tax bracket is roughly $380 thousand and up.&nbsp;Let&#8217;s make a new tax bracket &#8211; or a bunch of them. And if you&#8217;re making tens of millions, you can fund the government. Because thanks to the government, your company is allowed to thrive.</p>
196<p><b>Tax outsourced labor.</b><br />Americans need jobs, right? And the government needs money? Here&#8217;s a fix: tax companies who outsource our jobs. Either they pay the tax, or they make the jobs American. Either way, we win.</p>
197<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JOe9vp8hyOU/ThZWjquZ18I/AAAAAAAAArc/SlHVsWZvabA/s1600/green-jobs.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="281" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JOe9vp8hyOU/ThZWjquZ18I/AAAAAAAAArc/SlHVsWZvabA/s320/green-jobs.jpg" width="320" /></a></div>
198<p><b>Green incentives.</b><br />We lose a bunch of money importing oil&#8230;considering <a href="http://www.quoteoil.com/oil-imports.html">we import 60%</a>. Keep that money in the country by offering to not raise taxes as much on companies that go green (note, these aren&#8217;t really tax breaks, they&#8217;re lesser tax increases &#8211; but we&#8217;ll call them tax breaks).</p>
199<p><b>Scale back social security.</b><br />Social security was born out of the Great Depression, when F.D.R. feared that old people, physically unable to work, would end up dying on the streets. The system is supposed to keep people from ending up on the streets &#8211; not fund&nbsp;cruises&nbsp;for the well-to-do. If you&#8217;re not poor, you don&#8217;t need the&nbsp;safety&nbsp;net &#8211; let&#8217;s reserve this cash only for those who have to have it. Cut back on the size of the checks for everyone else, and up the age a bit&#8230;it&#8217;s not the 30s anymore, people live way past 67.</p>
200<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Cq5fKNl6Zuc/ThZWmBk2FxI/AAAAAAAAArg/xFjmTV2RHvc/s1600/snail+mail.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Cq5fKNl6Zuc/ThZWmBk2FxI/AAAAAAAAArg/xFjmTV2RHvc/s1600/snail+mail.png" /></a></div>
201<p><b>Get high-tech.</b><br />We register to vote by mail. Half of the toll booths are operated by human beings. Campaign advertising spends a ton on paper mailers. Let&#8217;s get high tech already! Stop wasting our cash processing paper forms, and set up a server to handle it automatically at a fraction of the cost &#8211; no envelopes, filing cabinets, and delays. Reduce the number of &#8220;cash only&#8221; lanes on the highway &#8211; instead of hiring people to hand out money, let&#8217;s migrate closer to 100% EZPass. And publicly funded campaigns? They&#8217;d cost a whole lot less (and kill fewer trees) if they weren&#8217;t mailing papers out to the whole country. Get some email lists and scale back the paper production&#8230;and apply that logic to tax statements, while you&#8217;re at it.</p>
202<p>Now, understandably, people will find flaws in these suggestions. And yes, some of these apply to federal government, others to local. But let&#8217;s face it: We&#8217;re wasting money. A ton of it. We dish it out to CEOs, we throw it down the drain of the the sinking social security system, and we stuff it into near-obsolete mailboxes.</p>
203<p>It doesn&#8217;t cost the government a dime to make new laws changing the way we operate, but it&#8217;ll sure save them quite a few.

If you&#8217;ve ever dropped half-dollars into a piggy bank, you may have ended up in this predicament. The slot on the top of the pig, through which one deposits coins, is plenty large, but the diameter of the hole in the bottom of the ceramic porker is much smaller. Drop large coins in, like half-dollars, and they&#8217;ll go in fine&#8230;but they won&#8217;t come out.</p>

230<p>I&#8217;ve spent hours reaching through the bottom of an overturned piggy bank, grabbing the large coin inside, and attempting to drop it directly through the slit from which it came. The process is&nbsp;frustrating and&nbsp;painstakingly slow. Having been asked to assist with the stuck coins predicament recently, however, I&#8217;ve coined a new solution.<br /><a name='more'></a>All you&#8217;ll need to MacGyver this fix is a pair of tweezers and a rubber band. Wrap the rubber band around the tweezers many times, until the rubber is&nbsp;squeezing&nbsp;the metal tool closed. From the bottom of the piggy bank, grab one of your coins (in this case, we had six of the buggers in there&#8230;that made the old drop method especially tricky!) with your fingers.</p>

241<p>Now, and you may need an extra set of hands for this one, pry open your tweezers and clamp them around the coin, allowing the rubber band to do the work of keeping the tightly closed around your prize.</p>

252<p>This is the easy part: Push your coin out the other end of the piggy bank, though the coin slot! Thanks to the length of the tweezers, you can actually traverse the entire piggy bank while maintaining control of the coin &#8211; no need to drop! Once the coin is peeking out the other end, snatch it away &#8211; your pull is stronger than the rubber band&#8217;s grip. Collect, reset, and repeat as needed.</p>

279                        <p>When it comes to registering for classes, Tufts follows the time-honored seniority tradition: seniors pick first, freshmen pick last. But the ExCollege doesn&#8217;t seem to have gotten that memo. In fact, the University&#8217;s home for new and unusual courses doesn&#8217;t stagger course selection at all. Come 9:00am EST on Tuesday, September 1, 2011, potentially thousands of students across campus will be logging on to grab spots in some of the coolest classes offered. Those classes, as of today, are <a href="http://www.excollege.tufts.edu/coursesUpcoming.asp">listed online</a>.</p>

290<p><a name='more'></a>The Experimental College is open to all students at the university, offering full- and half-credit courses of both the graded and pass/fail variety in an unusual array of fields. Some courses are taught by professors, others by (well vetted) students. My &#8220;LOST as Literature&#8221; class from last year was a member of the ExCollege, while selections like &#8220;American Sign Language&#8221; are Ex-ExCollege courses &#8211; they started there, graduated, and became part of other departments.
291<div></div>
292<div>This semester&#8217;s selection includes such diverse titles as: &#8220;Arthuriana Through the Ages,&#8221; &#8220;Sports Obsession: Athletics, Money, and Culture,&#8221; and &#8220;The Right to Marry: The Legal Perspective.&#8221; The &#8220;EPIIC&#8221; colloquium exploring sources of conflict in the 21st century is expected to be in high demand, and &#8220;Rape Aggression Defense&#8221; is appearing in multiple sections, no doubt in continued response to high (or high enough) interest levels. Most classes are offered at night, when day jobs and other classes won&#8217;t conflict for instructors and students. Many courses are held once weekly, for approximately 2.5 hours per session.</div>
293<div></div>
294<div>So go ahead, take a look at the listings. Don&#8217;t get your hopes up, of course; everyone in school could be vying for these courses. Which makes me wonder if I should have published this post at all&#8230;</div>

As the topic was something I often asked myself, I was compelled to leave a reply.</p>
330<p>
331In November of 2010, I suggested an answer: Politics. I went on to argue that we simply couldn&#8217;t have &#8220;teachers, or engineers, or anything else unless the government is willing to support it &#8230; [W]e need people to study politics, so that they can continue to create schools, projects, and policies that allow us to thrive. Once government is in place, we can move on to more advanced fields &#8211; education, sciences, arts.&#8221;<br />

419                        <p>Every once in a while something comes along that encapsulates your life so perfectly that you can’t help but admire it. That’s sort of the way that I feel about the 42 bus in DC even though I have only been on it a few times so far this summer. I guess it is normal to have affections (both positive and negative) for certain modes of transportation, but sometimes they jump out you far more obviously than others and that is clearly the case of the 42 bus.</p>
420<p>So what is the 42 bus? The 42 bus runs from Mount Pleasant through Adams Morgan to Dupont Circle, Farragut Square, Metro Center, and Chinatown. Therefore, it pretty much serves the majority of the places that I would need to take the Metro to in downtown DC in a way that is more direct than the Metro. I have the use the words “more direct”, because speed is not of the essence on this bus, which stops everywhere. Since there are so many stops, it can take a half hour to get from Metro Center to Adams Morgan, which could be done faster by taking the Metro and walking. However, the 42 bus is just so easy and affordable that one does not think twice about taking it. Of note, the bus line is not even five miles long and it takes 45 minutes to go from start to finish, which is almost absurd considering taking the Metro from Chinatown to Columbia Heights takes 8 minutes.</p>
421<p>Like every well-traveled bus line, the 42 bus has its share of general characters. While I am technically an intern, I would still classify myself in the group of well-educated young, white professionals who are usually commuting on the bus typically from Adams Morgan or Mt. Pleasant to downtown and vice versa. Then, there are also a bunch of service employees of all races on the bus who due to socio-economic and transit patterns, can be taking the bus from any stop to any other point. While these groups make up most of the ridership, you can always count on a handicapped person or an older individual to slow the bus down even more than its already snail-like pace as they take longer to get on and off the bus.</p>
422<p>On a bus with this crowd, hardly anyone travels with others and people only chat if they bump into someone that they know. A majority of these people are playing around on their phones doing everything from e-mailing to texting friends to playing Angry Birds or just messing around with the options on their phone to fit in. Then, there is always someone who is reading a book or magazine with a prominent title and intentionally flashing it around to let you know that they are reading that specific publication.</p>
423<p>Overall, the 42 bus is an entertaining ride that is usually worth the $1.50 with your Smart Trip. The buses come in a few different shapes and sizes, but the attitude is typically the same.  The 42 also has an evil sister bus, the 43, that only goes to Farragut during rush hours. So if you want to get a taste of DC life, I would highly recommend checking out the 42 bus and this accompanying <a href="http://the42bus.blogspot.com/">blog</a>.</p>

439                        <p>The USDA needs to stop redesigning the Food Pyramid. But seriously. They&#8217;re the department of <em>agriculture</em>, not graphic design; give it a rest! Sure enough, they&#8217;ve done it again, bringing new meaning to the phrase &#8220;reinvent the wheel.&#8221; The new circle-shaped &#8220;<a href="http://www.choosemyplate.gov/" >MyPlate</a>&#8221; (that&#8217;s right, <em>plate</em>, not pyramid) was unveiled Thursday &#8211; unbelievable. I did some digging to enrich my complaints, and so without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, a brief history of the USDA&#8217;s food guides:</p>
440<p><img alt="" height="227" src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/-Fz35faH49D8/TermEe9Pn_I/AAAAAAAAAoo/9oMgNFVwwOU/%25255BUNSET%25255D.jpg" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="300" /> <a href="http://peacelight14.blogspot.com/2011/06/food-for-thought.html" name="more"></a><strong></strong><br /><a name='more'></a><strong>1894</strong><br />The USDA first introduces dietary guidelines.</p>
441<p><strong>1943</strong><br />To help keep Americans healthy during World War II rationing, the Department creates the &#8220;Basic 7&#8243; food wheel.</p>
442<p><img alt="" height="300" src="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-EF-OO8PkC7U/TermO7UEP-I/AAAAAAAAAos/FMHtfzUQK1s/%25255BUNSET%25255D.jpg" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="237" /><br /><strong><br /></strong><br /><strong>1956</strong><br />Seven groups was no good, so they drop it to four.</p>
443<p><strong>1992</strong><br />The wheel design isn&#8217;t cutting it, so the Food Pyramid was born &#8211; the one I grew up with. It seems to make sense to me, and it&#8217;s easy to remember visually: the bottom is grains, eat lots of those; then comes fruit and vegetables, eat those about evenly; next is dairy and meat, eat less; finally sweets, eat these least. I did that from memory before inserting the graphic, it&#8217;s that simple.</p>
444<p><img alt="" height="282" src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/-eJYTWo0Pz9Q/TermTDryhhI/AAAAAAAAAow/yjdqUNL8w8o/%25255BUNSET%25255D.jpg" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="300" /><br /><strong><br /></strong><br /><strong>2005</strong><br />It turns out that exercise is a food group, and it&#8217;s probably as easy to memorize the width of colored strips as it is to learn that pyramids are big on the bottom and smaller up top, so the USDA renovated their masterpiece, replacing it with MyPyramid.</p>
445<p><img alt="" height="224" src="http://lh6.ggpht.com/-pILspANz-LM/TermXbmS4cI/AAAAAAAAAo0/rOP3opyiG1c/%25255BUNSET%25255D.png" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="300" /><br /><strong><br /></strong><br /><strong>2011</strong><br />Turns out wheels were pretty cool after all. Back to square one with a carefully-divided serving plate, MyPlate, impossible to recreate from memory (note the subtle differences in portion sizes between groups). And how are we supposed to compare the tiny circle to the wedges, exactly?</p>
446<p><img alt="" height="273" src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/-uT6NnQbACWw/TermbsQu3rI/AAAAAAAAAo4/iwJbJJBhkN0/%25255BUNSET%25255D.jpg" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" width="300" /></p>
447<p>Suffice it so say, I&#8217;m not pleased. Another pointless redesign, another step away from the 1992 structure that made good sense. What&#8217;s the next step, the Food&nbsp;Dodecahedron (sorry, the MyDodecahedron)? Here&#8217;s an idea: drop the budget for the USDA&#8217;s graphic design team, reinstate the old Food Pyramid, and put the savings into sustainable fuel for the farmers.</p>
448<p>It took them 6 years to make the last change. At this rate, each graduating class will have grown up on a different food shape. That&#8217;s probably not healthy for American unity, it&#8217;s unclear whether or not it&#8217;s healthy for our bodies, and it&#8217;s sure messing with our mental health. Well, mine at least.
