As long as the government keeps pleading "STEM and skills shortages" , virtually every field of work will be swamped by applications.
Considering that Bernie Sanders wants to make "education free for all", thats exactly whats going to happen, but worse. I won't be surprised if employers soon start requiring a Masters degree just for a cleaner's position.
I cannot graduate community college, never mind university, without passing/and or showing proficiency in intermediate algebra.
I took pre-algebra, failed it in 7th grade, took algebra 1 in 8th -- failed it too, and took algebra 1 again in high school and got passed on a C after having a math tutor do all my homework in class, and letting me cheat on the exam (this is a charter school, only way that could've happened).
I start taking community college classes. Had an accident one year into CC; mild brain injury, migraines, tremors, anxiety. Took me 4 years,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A staple in scifi is for an advanced species to use energy weapons over kinetic ones because I suppose energy weapons look advanced or something but wouldnt energy weapons ultimately be very impractical?
>>7847040 i suppose it would depend on the application. also the energy density of batteries of hypothetical future weapons. a focused beam of plasma would require a metric fuckton of energy to produce, however if it could be sustained some advantages include: >sustained fire reduces operator error, you don't shoot at a target so much as a general region
>faster "projectile" speed means no need to compensate for effects such as gravity and wind... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Any engineering guys here? I'm MechE in major and stuff, and I'm doing well in my classes, it's just that everything is so tedious and unexciting. Any of you guys experienced the same thing? What did you do, stick with it and wait for it to pick up or change majors?
I just switched to physocs. Honestly being an accredited engineer isnt worth the boredom of cadwork and punching in values for load specs of a deadbolt. Im gonna make less money but i think that doing what you love is more valuable.
>>7847063 >>7847075 Man I just want to work on prosthetics and medical technologies (though not be a surgeon or anything), I don't know what major would put me there best. I considered switching to ChemE, but I don't know man I don't want to make a bad leap
Was debating someone on whether or not there were inherent physiological differences between the male and female brain. Looking to be informed on whether or not there has been any trusted studies on this, and if I am wrong in saying men and women are inherently different in terms of brain chemistry. This (http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/confirmed-theres-no-such-thing-male-or-female-brain-180957417/?no-ist) seems to be the only article I can find on the matter, but I can't imagine it being a full explanation of the subject or the only source material on this. Are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't know myself, but it is a controversial topic, so any articles might be biased. It might be good to see if there are differences in the brains of male/female apes or other animals, since those might not be obfuscated by political correctness as much.
>>7846995 You won't get an answer, because no one will do serious research on the topic for the same reason that we won't see any serious attempt to decode the haplotypes that point out racial distinctions in our lifetime - it's not really all that great of an investment (what are you going to sell from your results, pamphlets that say "gurls r dumb?" No one will want to publish your findings unless they can bank off of them) and it's also not great for the pursuit of happiness. Honestly, is it... Comment too long.

>>7847332 It is important if one group is less inclined to study STEM and there is this assertion going around that men are oppressing women by being men. And the reason we won't get a proper answer is because dishonest ideologues who are in the establishment have too mush to lose if we dispel their myths which they bank on.
Is it possible to start 'terraforming' venus, by engeneering plant cells to float around in the upper atmosphere and convert CO2 into O2 over millions of years to bring down temperatures? Obviously they would need Genetic Engineering to survive the acidic upper atmosphere.
Betelgeuse is a Red Giant star easily visible in clear nights sky in the constellation of Orion. It is located 640 ly from Earth. This star can become a supernova at ANYTIME... Maybe it has even may have happened. Who knows.. When it happens, it will shine as bright to be visible in the sky during the day.
