Is there any hope for me in the STEM field? Currently doing commercial pest control and I'm the only one in my Branch that actually reads the labels, I also enjoy solving problems through research and study. My managers actually praise me for knowing most of the active ingredients in the products we use.
tl;dr: how do I make a living solving problems and researching?
>>7781109 seen this thread a bunch. heres what you are going to get out of it:
1. consider that enrolling in a STEM field means your 26 year old ass will be up against 18-19 year olds that are smart enough and motivated enough the first time around. 2. sci/fags are going to have no sympathy and probably be irritated by your question. you will either get but hurt or realize they have good reason to behave that way.
dont appeal to sympathy to argue that your the right guy to pursue stem. hopefully other people... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7781117 Thanks! I have gotten on the renewable energy bandwagon, been looking for entry level work in my locale. After several years of thinking about what I wanted to do in life, researching and advancing the energy sector seemed like a good fit. I assume it's a field where I wouldn't have to explain things to people and convince the unknowing to accomplish a goal.
Don't get me wrong, I love talking to people, and explaining things that I confidently know to those that don't, but even in my current... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What caused Bowie to get so sick? I doubt this was one of those cases where someone just gets heart attacks and cancer. I'm guessing this is a good example of why you shouldn't do hard drugs like cocaine. Liver cancer though? That's usually caused by alcohol, right?
Most of these artists especially when they're young do drugs which over time trashes their systems. In later years they open doors for sneak attacks like heart or organ failures. I'm not sure if he did too much alcohol but even a small substance might have triggered it and caused a failure because the organs are damaged way too much. Instantenous death without showing obvious symptoms is usually caused by prior drug abuse that left the organs defenseless.
Why the fuck is everyone so afraid of fractions? I simply do not get it. I am a masters student in mathematics and when I TA about 90% of the students will first write a problem down and then change any fraction to a decimal. What in the fuck? Why would you waste your time doing that, especially when you're not allowed a calculator on tests? WHY? Most of them will only write 1-2 decimal points too, so they have an answer which is slightly off due to round off answers.
When I ask them why they do this they don't really have an answer. I just do not understand.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7781000 >while simultaneously putting faith in people who claim to have done the work. No man can be an expert on everything. Society was created so people could specialize in a niche. People in general need to differ to specialists and be able to trust what they say is true with out being a specialist themselves. Without this society will collapse. The problem is anyone can claim to be a specialist and if everyone is it would take too long to vet everyone.

>>7780995 People responses to these phrases is Pavlovian. They've heard it a million times with things that were true so they assume every time they hear the words what follows is true, classic Pavlovian.
If 4chan made a popular meme demonstrating falsehood or ignorance following those words would it counteract the Pavlovian response, or would it remain creating a double think in people's minds?
Hi, everyone of /sci/. Today I want to Talk about a question that intrigued me for a long time: what type of civilization will the humanity become? Or we will annihilate in the process because of war? If you don't know what I'm talking about of the types of civilizations let me explain. There're three types of civilizations:
Type I: A civilization that can use all the energy in his own planet. This kind of civilization knows all the species of his native planet and has the enough tecnology to terraform a planet like Mars or Venus and they can explore more... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>We have a certain stock that's worth 100 dollars on day 1. Every day, the price can either go up with 30%, or down with 25%. Both appear with probability 0.5. What's the value of the stock after 1000 days?
Now let [math]\xi_n[/math] be the price movement of the stock on day n, it can either be 1.3 or 0.75, and [math]N_n[/math] the price on day n.

The representation of lasers in popular culture, and especially in science fiction and action films, is very often misleading, if not downright wrong. Some examples? Unlike in air, a laser beam would not be visible to the naked eye in the near-vacuum of space, because there is not sufficient matter in space to produce the light scattering needed to actually see the beam. Blaster strikes from the Tie Fighters in Star Wars? They'd be invisible. Science fiction films also often depict lasers moving at only a few metres/second, in a manner reminiscent of conventional tracer ammunition. But a laser is electromagnetic radiation - it travels at the speed of light. Action movies e.g. Mission Impossible, often depict laser-based security systems whose beams can be illuminated with dust or powder and cleverly defeated with a combination of mirrors. Such security systems almost never use visible lasers, and putting enough dust in the air to make the beam visible would probably trigger the alarm anyway. In the 1964 film Goldfinger, Bond faces a hot laser beam approaching his groin, inch-by-inch melting the solid gold table to which he is strapped. Goldfinger's director, Guy Hamilton, found that a real laser beam would not show up on camera, so it was inserted after filming as an optical effect. The table was also precut and then coated with gold paint, and the faux-laser melting effect was achieved by a man sitting below the table armed with an oxyacetylene torch.
From past experience, which is easier to score, SAT or ACT. I feel it's the SAT, cause high IQs like me can just take it fresh, without any prior knowledge unlike the ACT. But this is just my opinion, what do you guys think? Not sure if GRE is like SAT though.
>>7780860 I took it and fucked up the essay though, cause i was fuckin tired at the end of it, so i went off topic, but was considered lucky because it didn't really pull english grade down much, but nonetheless used my SAT instead for college
>None of the reviewed criteria for international ranking seems to have very good construct validity for both educational and research excellence, and most don't have very good construct validity even for just one of these two aspects of excellence. Measurement error for many items is also considerable or is not possible to determine due to lack of publication of the relevant data and methodology details.

So scientists have now confirmed finding gravitational waves that bend space and time, thereby proving the last of Einsteins theories right. In addition to finding a protein which could be responsible for unicellular organisms evolving to become multicellular.
Assuming the aliens somehow managed to stop climate change (during their exponential development phase), a potential asteroid impact, and a global nuclear war in their own planet, any advanced civilization that is capable of interstellar travel pretty much would have discovered 3D printing or some other way to create their own food and resources in a vastly sustainable and efficient manner.
