    If you want to focus on physics when studying physics, consider avoiding Pomona College.

    The elite member of Southern California’s Claremont Consortium hosted its third annual “Decolonizing Physics” symposium this week, composed of mandatory student presentations on decolonization as well as “microaggressions, implicit bias and other topics,” the Claremont Independent reports.

    What does any of that have to do with physics?

    I was just reading about particle decay last night. When the 'quark' was discovered, it was originally called 'the strange quark'... because there needed to be a measurement for its rate-of-decay. So 'strangeness' was then used to describe the particle's quantum-number at any given moment.

    So you could feasibly super-impose that onto real-time 'academic decadency'... in terms of 'lower-learning'.

    'Elite' in the tuition cost and bankroll of the mommies and daddies, or 'Elite' in the physics community? I've never heard of it before.
