NPR: '80s Ads Are Responsible For the Lack of Women Coders

oh_my_080980980 Re:All the movies had women in business (712 comments)

LMOL...ummm no. You do not solve a problem from spending endless hours staring at a screen. That is the worst way to solve a problem. You need to step away from it and take a break. It is also helpful to talk to other people to get ideas. That's why collaboration is very important.

Ebola Does Not Require an "Ebola Czar," Nor Calling Up the National Guard

oh_my_080980980 Ummm (370 comments)

Appointing an Ebola Czar is about managing fear. People don't think the government is doing enough and people think the CDC and health care workers at the Dallas hospital fucked up. That's why there is an Ebola Czar. You'd think the person who wrote this article would understand that very simple point.

As is Doctor Who teaching children how to code...since the show is the farthest thing from science fiction, more like fantasy, so maybe teaching kids about alchemy...

Pentagon Reportedly Hushed Up Chemical Weapons Finds In Iraq

oh_my_080980980 Re:Designed in US, Built in EU, Filled in Iraq (376 comments)

LOL these were left over munitions, not newly developed stock. FYI Rumsfeld kept saying they knew where the WMDs were but could never find them. So were they looking in the wrong spot?

RTFA: "They did a good job in and of themselves. They worked closely with the U.S. CDC. If we can succeed in Nigeria I do believe we will stop it here."

Fusion Reactor Concept Could Be Cheaper Than Coal

oh_my_080980980 Re:Costs (315 comments)

Considering the US doesn't invest a lot of money in fusion R&D the way we do oil, it's not surprising.

Is It Time To Throw Out the College Application System?

oh_my_080980980 Selling Another Assessment Tool (389 comments)

He's just selling another assessment tool. Is the college admissions system really broken? If school admissions are truly worried about not accepting applications that are creative but have low grades they can ask for additional information and, wait for it, INTERVIEW the applicant. Another assessment tool IS NOT going to solve some perceived issue. It's up to college admissions to figure out which applicant will be successful at their institution.

So perhaps what you are really arguing for is NOT another assessment tool but rather a more thorough academic profile of your applicants.

Senators Threaten To Rescind NFL Antitrust Exemption

oh_my_080980980 Re:I wish McCain would retire (242 comments)

You didn't read the article did you.

"That means by 2016, each NFL team will bring in at least $181 million from national TV alone — more than enough by itself for teams to cover their salary cap expenses."

FYI blackouts have little impact on attendance. So blackouts not driving ticket sales.

oh_my_080980980 Re:Live by the sword, die by the sword (242 comments)

So what you're saying is Congress can't multitask. Glad we cleared that up. FYI what do you think tax payer money could be spend on if it wasn't subsiding professional sports teams....think Potsy think.
