The common argument I hear is that 'all their music sounds the same'. While I disagree that all their music sounds the same, I would personally argue that a lot of their stuff just doesn't feel as interesting as a lot of stuff I've heard - a lot of the instruments just feel as if they're there for ...

As someone who has worked in polling and now manages a team of statisticians and data scientists, I've been urging everyone to avoid the polls until after the first debate.

My alma mater increased on-campus classes to 50% but only made it so grad students have the option to enroll in on-campus sections (thanks loopholes!). They’re also providing free legal services to international students fight deportation orders.
