Two Google Engineers Say Renewables Can't Cure Climate Change

Lilith's Heart-shape Re:It boils down to energy storage costs (624 comments)

Like you wouldn't believe. I'm still not sure if it's a prerequisite for being a software developer, or an occupational hazard.

Researchers Say the Tech Worker Shortage Doesn't Really Exist

Lilith's Heart-shape Re:STEM is for suckers.. at least now. (429 comments)

A Few Good Men is a drama, not a documentary. Those men with rifles that you hero-worship? They aren't making the world safe for democracy. They're making it safe for capitalism, which will happily throw individual rights under a bus the second they impinge on quarterly profits.

Screw storage. Use solar when it's available, but fall back on nukes when it's dark/cloudy/raining/snowing.

Cops 101: NYC High School Teaches How To Behave During Stop-and-Frisk

Lilith's Heart-shape Re: Civics class (474 comments)

Resorting to making an appeal to nature to persuade me that I should be a macho man, or hate myself for not being macho? You fail.

Lilith's Heart-shape Re: Civics class (474 comments)

You should have stopped with this:

Teach people to how to respect one another and treat others the way they'd like to be treated themselves.

I'm not interested in conforming to your ideal of masculinity.

Wake up and realize that the country you're living in hates you and does not deserve your presence.

I realized that decades ago. Where in Satan's holy name is a self-taught American programmer with no degrees supposed to go? Galt's Gulch? Not fuckin' likely.

Obama's Immigration Order To Give Tech Industry Some, Leave 'Em Wanting More

Lilith's Heart-shape Re:I bet Infosys and Tata are dancing in the stree (186 comments)

If the US becomes a third world country, it will be at the hands of the richest among us and their allies in the Republican Party. The Democrats, including Obama, merely aid and abet Wall Street's depredations.

Morality is for the working class. If you want to succeed in a capitalist economy, it's better to be amoral.

Mathematics: The Most Misunderstood Subject

Lilith's Heart-shape Lilith's Heart-shape writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Lilith's Heart-shape (1224784) writes "Dr. Robert H. Lewis, professor of mathematics at Fordham University of New York, offers in this essay a defense of mathematics as a liberal arts discipline, and not merely part of a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) curriculum. In the process, he discusses what's wrong with the manner in which mathematics is currently taught in K-12 schooling."
