Jesse Jackson: Tech Diversity Is Next Civil Rights Step
Google is probably not an accurate representation of that employment market considering that it seems to me to be exactly the company that would make deliberate attempts to hire for diversity.
Anyway. While the amount of whites seems fairly accurately representative of america as a whole, the proportions of non-whites is interesting.
African American (12%)
Asian American (5%)
Asians are grossly overrepresented and african americans are very underrepresented.
MIT's Ted Postol Presents More Evidence On Iron Dome Failures
Are you seriously arguing that Boko Haram is representative of the ideology of Islam?
And at the same time you seem to imply that nazism was hijacked by radicals?
World Health Organization Calls For Decriminalization of Drug Use
That seems fairly accurate.
If you look at it, christianity seems designed for a society where everyone feels like shit and is oppressed, while priests tell you that everything will be better once you're dead (as long as you made sure not to have fun in this life, then you go to hell)
It seems to be the kind of religion ideally suited for a super authoritarian society.

That was a truly great game.
The gameplay itself was a bit lacking, but the atmosphere was amazing.
EU's Top Court May Define Obesity As a Disability
For that to be true, it has to be the case that every prison rape incident is a result of sexual desire. You entirely ignore the possibility that prison rape is not only about sexuality itself, but about domination and power.

Minecraft really is a game, yes.
An MIT Dean's Defense of the Humanities
1: It seems fairly common among humanities students that, unless they also study some "hard science" subject on the side, they are fully aware of their own weakness in those subjects and do their utmost to avoid having to come close to them.
2: It seems fairly endemic among STEM students that they believe that all humanities stuff is useless garbage that matters to nobody and that everything can be solved by "logic".
3: Evil and destructive ideas? What?
CISPA 3.0: the Senate's New Bill As Bad As Ever

Bill Gates & Twitter Founders Put "Meatless" Meat To the Test
Stuff like this tends to be prohibitively expensive. That seems to be the greatest obstacle to acceptance.
Ask Slashdot: Hungry Students, How Common?
You reminded me of the survivor fallacy.
A Polish engineer/mathematician was hired by the US air force during WW2. His mission was to make US airplanes stay in the air longer. He was shown a bunch of planes which had returned safely from missions. Some of them had many bullet holes. His commander told him that he thought the best plan was to reinforce the bullet pierced areas with thicker plating.
The engineer objected and suggested instead: The bullet holes indicate that the pierced areas need no additional plating. After all, the planes with bullet holes here returned safely. Look instead into reinforcing areas without bulletholes, as if a plane was downed surely it must've been struck somewhere where these planes were not.

It's Time To Bring Pseudoscience Into the Science Classroom
I bet a major reason why conservatives are into organized religion is because organized religion is by its nature authoritarian.
By contrast, pagan and new age stuff are pretty much anti-authoritarian and very individualist (but just as stupid as organized religion).

An SSD for Your Current Computer May Save the Cost of a New One (Video)
I see you have yet to enter the wonderful world of sample based orchestration.
I could easily max out 128 GB of ram. If I'm feeling excessive I could probably reach 256 GB, but then I'd have to do silly things like loading even articulations I don't use.
And I'm working with relatively low-end sample sets. I don't know the maximum size of, say, the VSL collection, but I bet about two terrabytes are necessary for perfectly fluid playback of the whole thing.
(currently i suffer with only 12 GB of ram and it really strains the capacity. I have to cycle out instruments from ram as I work on my tracks when I run out of ram)

The fundamental problem with the second amandment is that the only group I can actively imagine making use of it against the government is also the group I least want to see use it against the government.

Jimmy Wales To 'Holistic Healers': Prove Your Claims the Old-Fashioned Way
On a Swedish now defunct website for political discussion there used to hang out a Crazy radical feminist woman who had a Universal Theory of science.
In her opinion, it was impossible to say what is science and what is not and as such nobody has the power to say that something is scientific and something else isn't. To her, everything is scientific and the people who disagree are proponents of "scientism".
This tied in with the radical feminist angle because she also argued that science as it currently exists has been overtaken by men and now serves only male and masculine purposes such as technology and weapons. She elaborates that male science is destructive because it picks things apart to understand how they work and it creates destructive inventions.
She says that female science, by contrast, does not pick anything apart. Instead it would look at things and examine them as a whole, and come to answers using hermeneutic analysis. (hint: it means you sit around and talk about it for a long time)
Her ultimate point is that she believes it is not right to call something non-scientific simply because it cannot be empirically tested.
She also got into weird and ultimately bizarre postmodernist arguments such as if someone believed a partcular treatment actually helped them, then the treatment was effective. She was strongly pro-homeopathy, crystal healing and whatever.
(she also drove everyone insane by writing in 50 word sentences)
