But can we really trust an article that misspells "news"?

Perhaps it was in Latin.

baord
An organisation, body or person , that due to loop holes in the

laws of the land or its commercial sector/industry , is above

normal regulation that is applied to similar organisations.

Readers will note baord is very similar to Board - meaning a

group of people managing an authority/company or public
utility.

See this all the time in public assistance fraud.  The best is providers forging people's signatures on attendance rolls and misspelling their names.  Happens quite frequently.

My friend who is an HR manager says people are creating fake degrees from defunct universities.  She said whenever one is in the news she will suddenly have a bunch of resumes with MBAs from a recently closed university.

I have a friend who lied about having his bachelor's degree to get his current job. And he's been there for almost a decade. I guess some employers are better than others about checking such things.

I've never once had an employer ask to see my actual diploma, so fortunately that degree from the University of Misisipi has served me well.

This is my home town's college, most of the professors have degrees from Phoenix University, or some no give a shiat college you've never heard of. My English professor for example has her doctrine from Phoenix  her English 101 class was like this: the final paper you had to write 5 paragraphs, opening, 3 topics and a closing without errors to pass the class.

I wrote mine in 3 days, she gave me an A and passed me, I didn't have to attend the rest of the semester, however 9 people of 27 did fail her class. Why? Most people didn't even bother to use Spell checker, and she made it clear use every "Tool" available.

It doesn't surprise me a few of these Professors have bullshiat degrees, if you took the college courses you'd see real quick its bs.

/Student Learning 101 to teach college students how to prepare for college, really? you need a 4 year degree to teach this crap?

The man got pissed off with a legitimate board of licensure, so he went and created his own with his wife and father-in-law. He created his own standards and regulations and--voila!--he was "certified" to practice ophthalmology. (The board went defunct a few years ago, but he still claims to be certified.)

If a teacher did that, you bet your ass that a metric ass-ton of Republicans (mostly Tea Party folks who, oddly, support Rand Paul) would be up in arms and demanding criminal charges, the teacher's head on a pike, and so forth.

Point 1: Don't you really wish Fark had an edit button?

Point 2: I've heard of English classes like that before. Wish I had had one.

Point 3: My university had University 101, which was basically "Here's the library, here's student services, here's a lengthy list of surveys and stuff that you need to take." Class was worth a wholecredit hour, met for like half an hour on one day a week, and--and this is the kikicker--required someone with a master's degree to "teach" it. (Said teacher also served as academic advisor to the students for their freshman year.)

This has been around for years. Back in the mid 80s my boss did this. Uh, the school records office burned down. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Apparently Google search also brings up this:

Baord of Directors | Amman Stock Exchange
Mr. Marwan Al-Bataineh, Chairman. Dr. Abdulhadi Al-Alaween, Vice-Chairman. Dr. Ashraf Al Edwan, Member. Global Investment House-Jordan Mr. Samer Saed ...



Hmmm, not a lot of confidence in a stock exchange that can't spell correctly on its site, a frequently used business word like "board".  These guys must be only one step away from being goat traders.

fusillade762: I have a friend who lied about having his bachelor's degree to get his current job. And he's been there for almost a decade. I guess some employers are better than others about checking such things.


some thirty + years ago NASA decided the folks at the Michoud assembly center in New Orleans needed to have their resumes reviewed. a surprising large number were subsequently fired for faking their degrees. many had been there several years. i'm not sure what those folks did for employment after that.

I can't blame people for faking degrees.  Half the jobs requiring them in today's world don't actually need them.

Yes I concede in this perpetrators case it is needed, but so many jobs only require a high school diploma and in many other cases they do not even require that to have the skill set to do the job.

Yet they want people to spend tens of thousands of dollars and improving their intellectual capabilities when the job does not need it and the people who do the job after having required the degree end up with a job that will not pay off their student loans and is intellectually boring.

This push for everyone to go to university and complete a degree is the biggest con of the last 30 years and needs to be recognized for what it is.
