A Message From JJ Jones

Jay JonesHi Everybody!

I'm JJ Jones, the new Moderator of this blog. A few weeks ago Jasmine and Cee Jay put out a call for people to help with this news blog. I answered the call and was chosen to take care of this monster BY MYSELF! I need help. This news blog is getting about 1,000 reads and visits every three weeks from almost every country on earth. Jasmine and Cee Jay have graduated, so I need not only people to post news articles but people to write articles that will interest readers.

Send me tips about UNCC. It can be about anything, but it must be interesting and TRUE. If you can supply a link to an article or blog, that would help. If you have something to say, write it on Screaming Reviews (http://screamingreviews.com/?s=uncc) then send me a link. I will link to it.  In favor of or hate certain school regulations? Write about it. Have a suggestion for improving our alma mater? Know about something cool that's happening on or near campus? WRITE ABOUT IT!

The point is for you to get it off your chest and for the world to know about it.

You can send me anonymous tips on any page via the comments box. I won't publish it, but I'll investigate.

Help make a difference. Help to open people's eyes!

As ever,

JJ Jones  :)

For Those Who Those Who Are Already Enrolled at UNCC

Hello everyone,

The creation of this blog has been a learning experience for those who have been maintaining it and (hopefully) for those faithful who continue to read it. We know that many readers  are frequent and regular readers. We can see it in the traffic statistics and traffic patterns on our side of the blog. There are many readers whose visits register a hit almost as soon as a new link appears on the blog--- even at ungodly hours. We assume that some of these people are campus police and/or the university's office of the general counsel who fear that we may somehow malign them or the university. 

To date, my own (Jay Jones') occasional criticism of UNCC has been fair [see Kim Church and the whole stinking affair in which a young woman lived under the threat of prosecution for the "crime" of having been plied with alcohol and rohypnol and then raped and abandoned on campus. The campus policewoman who lied in court under oath during the evidentiary trial should have been dismissed but was not. Fortunately, the prosecutors saw the light--- or most probably read my editorials--- and dropped the case AFTER THREE YEARS OF PREPARING PROSECUTION AGAINST THE VICTIM].

We receive criticism almost daily, most of which is not published because the tenor and tone (and language) of the comments is not worthy of publication. We may not publish every reader's comments, but we feel his pain. I will reiterate: this blog is mostly a news aggregator. We find news about UNCC and link to it here. What appears in this news blog is merely a reflection of the environment that exists immediately outside campus, something that should worry anyone who attends University of North Carolina Charlotte. We don't make up the news.

It didn't take long to learn that the easiest stories to link to are the ones about crime around UNCC University City. The decision to give students as much access to this news was probably the best thing that we could do. Unfortunately, we don't publish much good news about UNCC or the UNCC University City area because there is little to report except for whatever we are sent through the Forty Niner publication. Even then, the good from Forty Niner news is scant. Oh, sure, one can read about who won the BoA Teaching Award and how beautiful the campus is and how excited the UNCC student body is about the new stadium and the football team and the transgender housing and all of the things that exist mostly to attract more students and to feed the money machine that UNCC has become. [Sound effects: Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the Machine"].

This leads us to another observation: it is insanely difficult to find out about things that happen on campus. If one knows where to look, and if he searches long enough, he can find UNCC web pages that detail UNCC policy, but one must search for it. That must change. One should not have to stand in long lines at the registrar's office or rely upon his counselor (who is usually out of out of his office AND out of the loop on most matters pertaining to university policy). Police reports about student deaths are terse little statements released only because the Clery Act requires the university to report student death on campus, campus crime, and campus fires. If one wants further information, he must go searching for it. We know how many people seek information about the University of North Carolina Charlotte because we see the traffic counts and the search words that lead people to our blog. Sometimes, the only clue that we (i.e., those who run the blog) have that something has occurred is a sudden spike in traffic and specific search words. This is really sad considering the fact that the staff of this blog is comprised of full-time, fully-engaged students.

The local media are complicit in the withholding of news pertaining to significant events in and around the University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC). There were (by our count) three suicides or attempted suicides on campus during the 2012-12 to 2013 school year. The local media did not report these, and the Forty Niner said little or nothing about these events.

There were (by our count) three rapes on the University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC) campus during the same time period. The November, 2012 event received some media coverage for a few days, but that was the end of it.  The UNC-CH event received much more media coverage. Dr. Dubois made an obligatory statement about the UNC Charlotte rape, and then that was the end of the matter as far as the student body was concerned. One really bright Women's Studies prof actually published an opinion in her blog saying that increased campus surveillance would be a move to further repress women. Did she tell that to the victim of the rape? (Read the following paragraphs with this in mind).

One more thing: UNCC administrators, dig through the library archives and read Tom Peter's "In Search of Excellence". Though the book was written in 1982, his business template of eight business practices are applicable to the modern university, especially one that is growing as fast as UNCC is growing. One piece of advice from "In Search of Excellence": reduce management layers. UNCC's bureaucracy is so bloated that might be considered gouty and worthy of amputation via mass issuance of pink slips.

Another book that Chancellor Dubois should make required reading by all faculty, staff, department chairs, and anyone who holds any position of responsibility within the University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC) is Scott Adams' book "The Dilbert Principle", a takeoff on Laurence J. Peter's "The Peter  Principal". (Both books are worth reading). The most poignant piece of advice that Scott Adams offers is this: Get rid of the *ssholes. Everyone knows who they are.
 
The new instructor/professor should be given these books and be required to deliver a lecture on the principles of the books to his respective department. Whoever questions this reading list should be put on administrative leave and be required to write a paper on the books. Whoever just doesn't "get it" should be told to empty his desk, then be shown the back door.

When this blog was started, there was little hope that anyone would be able to find it, much less read it. Almost thirteen months later, our counter shows that we're about to reach a milestone of fourteen thousand views.

I want to thank our past and present staff: Jayne Jones, Jasmine Jones, Cee Jay Jones, and JJ Jones. There will be others as this blog grows and morphs into something more comprehensive and (hopefully) more interesting and diversified.

If you know of a news report that you think should be linked to this blog, send us the link. If you know of an incident (on-campus or off-campus) that should be reported, let us know. Become active on this blog!

Thanks to all who have made this blog such a success. Have a good, safe year AND STUDY STUDY STUDY!

Sincerely,

Jay Jones

Proposal Could Ban Gender-neutral Housing at UNC System Universities

"...A proposed policy by the UNC Board of Governors could block the gender-neutral housing program from starting before it begins...."

What were they thinking, anyway? 

Senators Reach Deal on Student Loans

"...Heading off a costly increase for returning college students, a bipartisan group of senators reached a deal Wednesday that would offer students better rates on their loans this fall but perhaps assign higher rates in coming years..."

How about this: require universities to charge the same rate of tuition for the duration of a student's enrollment. 

No. Wait. That would make too much sense and cost universities too much lost revenue.

Too Bad UNCC Hasn't Offered a Course on This Author in Years


Happy Birthday, Hemingway!

What we have instead are courses in Children's Literature, The Romantic Era, and AA Lit.

Major in Marketing. There's money in it, and no screwball teachers teaching it. Read Hemingway when you go to the mountains to fish. It's manly.

"...How long are you evil people going to keep doing this to the school? Do you realize the impact all of this bad news about the University area will have on enrollment? People won't want to attend this fine university. The school won't be able to pay for the beautiful stadium and all of the new buildings. This is so wrong. Shame on you. And JJ, I know who you are! What is your personal vendetta against the school? Is it because you weren't allowed into the sorority?..."

What is not understood is why some people feel that this news aggregator is responsible for anything other than linking to news articles about crime in the university's back yard. 

Re: how long this blog will continue to exist: forever, baby.



There is  no personal vendetta here. It's only a news aggregator. If you don't like it, don't read it. What's so difficult to understand about that?



We don't publish every comment, but the nasty tone of some of the comments is unwarranted and personal in nature. If you want to get personal and reveal JJ's identity, remember this: I know who YOU are now, and I knew you when you were a sophomore and BEFORE you were a virgin (haha). So take your scathing criticism and take your blame throwing elsewhere. That goes for faculty and administration. Get nasty with us, and we'll get nasty right back with truth, not lies, insinuation and innuendo. We've got enough verifiable dirt to go around, but that's not what this blog is about. It's a news aggregator and a COMMUNITY SERVICE.



Again, we invoke the absolute rights of the First Amendment. Don't like it? Talk to the Supreme Court.
