Are you sure you're not living in a bunker in Pakistan?

"... i can guess that the story is about a lonely girl that had a long career in IT as a twitter/facebook account manager, driving a Tesla around the Apple headquarters, assembling an army of H-1B warriors, so she can fight for social justice against the evil Republican gang that try to extend the copyright period of a manuscript kept inside the sacred temple of holy Richard Dawkins"

Ah, okay, you are.

The school owned the camera he used. Therefore all work from that camera belongs to the school.

No. It does not work like that. If you borrow my guitar and write a hit song, it's your song, the copyright is yours. If you borrow my camera and take a Pulitzer-winning photo, it's your photo, the copyright is yours. Copyright goes to the creator of a work, not to the owner of any tools incidental to the creation.

General skills, aka the ability to succeed in society without reverting to drug abuse, are considered when a company is hiring.

Chemcial tests can't tell whether a person is absuing drugs, only if they are using them. (It is a prohibitionist fiction that the use of certain drugs is inherently abuse.)

If the only way you can tell whether someone is using drugs is through chemical tests, ipso facto it is not affecting their performance on the job.

Progress means replacing a theory that is wrong with one more subtly wrong.
