    yeah, i also read dear Joseph’s one article about “Nazi glorification in Latvia” – one can hear those ‘ so logical and interesting’ claims every day from Russian migrants who are waving Russia’s flags and walking arond with Czar’s honor signs :))) I mean. it shows clearly enough democratic credentials and mentality of those posers-“liberators” :)

    Congratulations!

    Big thumbs up for supplying credentials.

    Now we can examine our sources in a little more depth. Triangulate for bias. So on.

    Little suggestion? Put your names in rugged typewriter font, white on dark background; at the moment the elaborate script at the top of the sidebar is hard to spot, at first.

    Sorry to have missed the posting of JF’s credentials. Exactly how did he gain his “expertise” in these matters and what qualifies him to teach this stuff?

  6. intelNews says:

    I don’t generally respond to anonymous queries, but I thank you for yours nonetheless. Generally, instructors in higher education acquire their academic expertise by successfully completing an accredited Ph.D., a commonly used abbreviation that denotes the conclusion of a specialized research project lasting anywhere from three to six years. The Ph.D. is then coupled with continuing scholarly research, a strong publication record, and specialized teaching that both reflects and sustains the instructor’s academic expertise. My own academic credentials are listed here. [JF]
