Just Say No To College

infonography Re:Did Zuckerberg ever have to get past HR? (716 comments)

....

As an employer, I only wish that were true. I find myself far more amazed by people who self-educated than people who put themselves through college and received crushing debts in return.

Remember, information and education aren't restricted to formal education environments.

I am back in School for a BA, I didn't want to get it I am just passed 50 last month. I have earned 100k+ at a lot of companies since the 90's. but without a degree you can't get passed the HR clowns. If a company wants to get good people they should not let HR have any connection with who can be hired. You need HR but its better for after the hire process not before. They are incompetent at telling what is and isn't a good fit.

Supreme Court: Affordable Care Act Is Constitutional

infonography Re:Well...not so much (2416 comments)

Do you think part of this may be that the French and Swiss are on average much healthier than the typical U.S. citizen? Since our average population is so incredibly unhealthy the overall risk to insurance companies is much higher, causing costs to rise for all involved.

I'm not stating this as a fact, but asking the question.

Patently idiotic assumption. By your supposition the French and Swiss are overall living a more healthy lifestyle there for they would have better outcomes. Slashdot is supposed to be for smart people who let you in? Universal healthcare assume that since it's not prohibitively expensive to see a physician the likelihood of catching a serous health issue early is greatly increased. If you catch cancer in the first stages you have a 1000 times more likelihood that you can cure it then if the person wanders into the E.R. in the terminal stage.

Ask Slashdot: Wrist Watch For the Tech Minded

infonography Douglas Adams Edition Pulsar (466 comments)

The original Pulsar digital watch was marketed through upmarket jeweller, Tiffany and Co. A solid gold version sold for $2,000 and a stainless steel model for $275.

Digital watches initially caught on only in the US and very few were exported. There was a strong market for them in 1973 and prices dropped quickly. Other firms entered the market, including Bowmar, which also pioneered the early pocket calculators in the US.

These are only sold at the gift shop in the Restaurant at the end of the Universe and at the Big Bang Burger Bar.
