If I want to work in a lab with chemicals hands on, what would be better? Pure Chem or ChemE? What is a typical day for a ChemE like (besides sucking cocks meme?) Can I do most of what a Chemist can do with a ChemE degree? It seems the only differences are ChemE's take more math and some specialized Chemical Engineering courses, and Pure Chemists take more electives that go deeper into various Chem topics. I'm minoring in math, so I'm taking at least the amount of math ChemE's need anyway.
I have just found out a lot of the professors in my school paid indexed journals' staffs (including reviewers & editors) so that they could publish their papers easier. It's not far-fetched to say that these journals pretty much belong to the school. This is why my school has advanced in ranking so fast in the last 5 years. Fuck academy. I know that there would be corruption in this shithole but I didn't know it could be THAT bad.
I live in Asia btw, I hope this is only an Asian thing.

Not sure what board would really cover a topic like this, so I'll just post it here.
Is there any real reason that we're burying people pumped full of dangerous chemicals inside of expensive steel boxes, never to be seen again? Just think of the millions of dollars are wasted and the ecological impact this must have on the ecosystems around cemeteries.
Like, this sounds like something only mental sickness would conjure up.
everyone strap in, I have a crazy ass math question:
so the definition of infinite is something limitless or has no end. Things such as counting, space (as far as we know) and my hatred towards terrible yet popular music are limitless.
with the numbers 1 and 2, there is a limitless amount of decimals and integers between them, however how can there be an endless count of numbers between 1 and 2 if 2 is the ending point? If these numbers are infinite, how can we count to 2?
>>8149201 > so the definition of infinite is something limitless or has no end That's wrong though. > how can we count to 2? define counting. most people define it by applying the counting numbers to a set. To count to 2, you'd go 1, 2

>>8149090 Sounds like a viral infection. It should go away on it's own in a few days, just keep drinking plenty of fluids and restore your electrolytes (Gatorade is perfect). If it won't go away until next week, then you should see a doctor.
Would a planet need to be a similar size to Earth to be able to produce plant and animal life as we know it on Earth?
ie. When looking for new habitable planets, do we only need to pay attention to planets approx the same size as Earth, or could we find a planet with 2/3 the mass, but still is lush and green with vegetation and oceans.
>>8148957 Mars no longer has an atmosphere (a very thin one remains) for two intricate reasons : - No magnetic activity : Earth's core is active and create a magnetic field around the planet that protect it against solar winds. The same solar winds that can blow the atmosphere out of the planet. - After the majority of Mars's atmosphere was blown away, the remaining air wasn't creating a suffisant pressure on the surface to keep water liquid. Water evaporates and is blown away, no water remains.

When we say mathematics is rigorous, exactly what do we mean? Is it the fact that it is unambiguous? That we make a assumptions clear? But both those definitions are problematic, since I can easily keep asking for further assumptions, and anything can be classified as ambiguous if we pull if far enough.
I have no problem doing rigorous mathematics, I have problems seeing exactly what we mean by it. It doesn't seem to have a clear definition, or a clear way to measure or distinguish rigorous from non-rigorous.
Hello /sci/, I'm a dummy and don't belong on this board but I think I just came up with a genius idea, what if the justice system were run by computer programs? My reasoning is that computers can't be bought or biased, mandatory and harsh sentences could be scaled I think. Good or bad idea? Has this been thought of before? I was even thinking of trying to writing a shitty story about it (don't steal if you think it would be a good one)
>>8148740 You do not need a good program, just one that is better than the current system. Turns out computer are bad at making evaluations regarding people behaviour, so I will take a while, maybe forever, to make a good judge computer
Found this cicada almost totally dead (it's legs were just barely moving) and it had these weird growths coming out of it. At first I thought that it was partially crushed and that they were some of it's guts but after picking it up I found that wasn't the case. Is it a parasite? That weird zombie fungus?
Say you released a golden retriever puppy into a pack of wolves. Would the puppy be able to integrate into the pack or had humanity too thoroughly genetically cucked the golden retrievers ability to survive in the wild?
>>8148492 Coyotes wind up raising stray pup dogs quite often, and occasionally the dog will even make alpha status. (A bit less common among wolves, obviously.)
Even when you get to the point where physical genetic alterations put them beyond all usefulness (Chihuahuas or what not) they seem to adapt fine. They don't become alphas, obviously, but the pack will still raise and defend them, at least some of the time.
Once in a great while, canines will even raise humans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkX47t2QaRs

>>8148492 It could die of plain disease, parasites, cold, etc. Sometimes omega wolves are expelled from packs, become giant lone wolves otherwise they starve, and then make their own packs.. Epigenetics would play a big role here. The puppy could survive if females liked him and if the pack wasn't starving.
Dear Anon, sorry for creating this stupid thread but I am in need of your help I want to study something technical but I don't really know what the smartest choice would be I really wanted to study economic computer science but I am afraid, that it will be worthless and I won't earn a lot of money, which to be honest is one of my goals later in life, I only know that I definitely want to study something technical, what would be the smartest choice?
Turbulence is caused by wind, which is caused by tempurature changes in the weather, or by Induced Drag. All you can do to treat it is by being a good pilot and maneuvering through or around it.
Induced Drag is a natural byproduct from generating lift, and your pic related is whats called Wing Tip Vortexes. Theres minor things you can impliment onto the wing tips to help stop those WTVs but i think it is just natural. I'm interested in figuring out how to utilize WTVs for the plane.

Preparing for a Japanese Scholarship exam, it consists of Chemistry, Physics, Math, English and Japanese.
My biggest fears are the scientific parts, Chemistry, Physics and Math, I love science but I am a student who just graduated High-School from a 3rd world curriculum which is based on memorization and vomiting out all the memorized info on a test paper at the end of the school-year. Because of this, and Shit teachers, I have shit foundations in science generally as well as math, but I love reading about science and the application of it. What do I do to prepare for...

>>8148134 It's very difficult taking exam in format you're not used to... especially when you were scoring high on the format you were very used to. I experienced this when I had to quit A level program for america. Knowing what question wants is crucial
Nothing's bad about memorization. How do you even do that in physics? It's all about understanding concepts in physics anyway. Well good luck
/sci/ I'm moving into and starting college this sunday. I'm going into a physics major and possible a double major in mathematics. For those of your majoring in them right now or have graduated, is there any advice you can give me? I mean specifically for physics and mathematics that is. I have torrented textbooks and all sorts of shit on a drive which I'm going to study with in my free time, will I even have the time or will to do this? I still want to have time for hobbies though and parties. I'm a pretty smart guy but regardless, anyone is going to have... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So help me sort this out Why are we still sticking to the science meme? Who cares about the arbitrary and tedious scientific method? Why are we wasting time with observations and guesswork when we should instead only focus on what we can rigorously derive using pure logic and pure mathematics?
Maybe it's just my math background talking, but who cares about experimentation? It doesn't prove anything. The next experiment can have results that completely invalidate all the previous ones. Why waste time and money on that instead of proving things for real? It's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8148010 volcanic eruptions elevated CO2 and sulfur dioxide to the point that global warming occurred. Warming interfered with oceanic currents producing marine anoxia. Marine anoxia caused blooms of cyanobacteria that then invaded terrestrial environments. Cyano killed plants and thus destroyed all food webs not based on detrivores. Mass collapse of food webs destroyed megafauna and marine biotas.
eventually climates stabilized, but by the time it was done almost everything was dead.
We all know University is a fucking shithole in terms of education standards and information presentation/delivery, its a business construct not a learning environment blah blah blah etc.
Do people usually graduate on time? Its a fucking pain in the ass walking through this pile of hot coal known as University, feels like absolute dogshit subjecting myself to this ridiculous scam, yet its essential to get

Those who do big things rarely depend on it. So if you plan on doing big things skip the schooling and employment track. This is a self-sorting system. People that are going to make it without schooling usually see through the system and have a plan to bypass it.
if you don't have a plan to get what you want yet you might as well stick to the program and do the chores necessary to gain employment. It's less risky than striking out on your own, that's a fact.
Well NASA says their reason is to understand how the first planet formed. According to pretty much everyone, that's Jupiter. So in a few years we might know how a solar system forms following the birth of a star.
Anyone qualified to speak on the economy of the US right now. I hear it's currently worse than 2008 and there is a recession or depression that we are in that will finally become apparent in the coming months. fear mongering or is there some truth to this???
>>8147727 I'm not really qualified. I am however a small business owner. I can say with some confidence that markets have changed since 2008 and show no sign of going back. To me it feels leaner. Companies are less willing to spend. Many are still making cuts and struggling to stay afloat.
I think we should seriously consider the possibility that the economy we enjoyed in the late 90's and early 2000's was a fluke, and we may never see it again.
>>8147458 There is no real distinction between pseudoscience and science
When you realize this, it will all make sense
What matters is whether you can successfully implement the knowledge, e.g. whether you can make predictions with the knowledge. That is and always has been the marker of useful knowledge. We just apply the arbitrary signifier of "LE SCIENCE" to whatever works and "LE PSEUDOSCIENCE" to what doesn't. It's a big cultural meme and needs to end.
