    University-Services has a new look tucked away in its site. It's a kind of partlal map of the darker chambers of the human heart. This new section aims visitors at:

    (0) Monroe University High School, looking very much like some versions of Trinity Christian High School;

    (1) The Unaccredited Entity Formerly Known as Saint Regis;

    (2) Academic Credential Assessment Corporation, that post-Sheila Danzig credential evaluator that initially listed a pair of SRU "professors" as its staff;

    (3) AdvancedU.org free evaluation;

    (4) Robertstown University, which continues to claim Liberian credentials in spite of the views of the Director General of the National Commission of Higher Education

    (5) Something new: the "Job-Wiz FREE Job Ad Posting Place," but with domain registration thusly:
    Registrant Contact:
    SRU
    Dr. Jallah Faciann, Director ([email protected])
    377 47 528-637
    73 Carey Street
    S&G Building West Wing
    monrovia, 00000
    LR

    (I thought the h-less version of "whiz" was slang, as in a beery "uh, I gotta take a ---.")

    (6) Something else that is new: "The Free Club," also registered to that busy guy who works on two continents, Jallah Faciann.

    Something old, something new...
    The metastasizing S-R-U.

    It's a good thing too much concentrated BS isn't nuclearly unstable, otherwise we'd be dealing with a mushroom cloud or two around "University Services".

    from the country that gave us Azad...

    ...and his Bangalore Institute of Science, Technology, and Management (originally SRU-India) also came the great physicist Subramaniam Chandrasekar, whose seminal work on stellar evolution led to our current understanding of black holes, the ultimate fate for most stars heavier than a couple of solar masses.

    The concept applies here: put enough crap into a small volume and it implodes, rather than explodes. So I would say the real risk is implosion rather than explosion.

    Perhaps it has happened and we just haven't yet detected any of the pin head sized black holes that are floating around?

    The academic fraud wonders, "I've had this nagging headache ever since I opened up that new University last week."

    Galanga: it appears as if this entire website is crap in a clever wrapping. An educational landmine. It would be a spoof if they weren't seriously fishing.

    Also, I see where ACAC is being used to lure prospects by extending the hope that graduates from ICfHE member schools (e.g. Breyer State U., Barrington U., Ameritech U. et al) will be officially evaluated as the equivalent to regionally accredited. Sounds like a parallel universe that is slightly out of phase with our own.
