Solving the Mystery of Declining Female CS Enrollment
This only so in our culture. There are a couple oft countries where this is totally different and CS is dominated by women.
Hungary To Tax Internet Traffic
The prime minister of Hungary wants to transform Hungary into a "un liberal" state. In short he wants to play Putin in his country. His primary goal right now is to push out any foreign investment. This new law targets that and in addition may help to control the opposition. The normal media is already under his control.
A yes and in addition Hungary is becoming more and more racist.
The Future of Stamps
There are four types of stamp uses and realizations mostly used in public. For adverts, they print a tag on the advert. For business letters with these little windows, they print it in the address field. For parcels you can print out a sheet and glue it in a parcel. And for the personal letter or postcard you mostly use lovely designed stamps. As I already have a printer, why shall I buy a device for stamps? And by the way I can even send an email to the post office and they will make a letter out of it including stamps. What is now the correct advantage of this new device?
Microsoft, Facebook Declare European Kids Clueless About Coding, Too
In Germany this is called FachkrÃftemangel. It is happening here for decades. However, the income of skilled workers (FachkrÃfte) has gone side ways. Therefore either all IT workers love their boss and hate money or they are idiots. It could NEVER ever be the case that there is no shortage.
On a side note: Skilled worker is a completely imprecise term.
Only 100 Cybercrime Brains Worldwide, Says Europol Boss
It looks like, you have all the solid logical arguments to explain that Poetterings work is pointing in the wrong way. I especially love your way of clear argumentation. However, I would recommend to be more precise next time and please try to avoid using the word fuck, body parts and relations to family members.
Infinite Browser Universe Manyland Hits 8 Million Placed Blocks
Hey jerk. If you want one write your own. Maybe you can also ask them if they share the code. However, the idea behind such universes is that you do not split things up.
Outsourced Tech Jobs Are Increasingly Being Automated
For capitalism humans are required not only for labor but also as consumers. Therefore the elites require to find a way to distribute money to the rest otherwise their system will collapse. However, I have the distinct impression that they do not know that.
The flying car I'd like in my garage first:
And I have no car. So this is presently no problem. Furthermore, were I life there is not enough space and distance to make use out of a flying car. I rather would have an autonomous Android. So it can go shopping while I work or sleep. And it could do the dishes (true there are special machines for that task, but there is no space in the kitchen).
Complain About Comcast, Get Fired From Your Job
In Germany his employer would not be able to fire him on the grounds of a letter from another company discussing private behavior. Especially not without having the chance of defending yourself.
It would also been illegal to summarize communication and send that to a third party. They could however sued him in court. To do so they would not need his present address, the state would have handled this.
A Production-Ready Flying Car Is Coming This Month
Someone proposes a flying car every now and then. As they are all only interpretation of past concepts, which did not work or were impractical. There was recently an article on why there will never be an practical realization. I hoped that will be the end of it. But obviously /. still did not get the message and now another lame story on the topic appeared.
Does Learning To Code Outweigh a Degree In Computer Science?
They complement each other.
Driverless Buses Ruled Out For London, For Now
There are already some driverless underground railways in operation. For example in Nuremburg and even in London. Buses would be possible when driverless cars are working. In most cases talking to the driver is limited to asking for a ticket by specifzing the destination. A ticket machine can provide the same service.
Ask Slashdot: Should I Fight Against Online Voting In Our Municipality?
Ann election must be free, equal, and secure. To ensure equality, the count must be repeatable for everyone. Online voting vor any voting machine does not provide that feature. The German supreme court ruled that voting machines do not allow real democratic elections.
And it is not a good argument that voting machines or online voting is faster. Fast and convenient is not the core concerns for democracy. The above criteria are.
Sexual Harassment Is Common In Scientific Fieldwork
Exactly my point. Normally, company policies try to "fix" harassment by forbidding relationships with co-workers. That would be counterproductive. I rather would like to propose a way to improve the ability for harassed people to press charges and compulsory shrink visits for both including mediation, which should be also used for minor incidents (including misunderstandings) to solve issues instead of just hanging the man/woman for severe misconduct.
Sexual Harassment Is Common In Scientific Fieldwork
The problem here, as described in text, is that they get away with it. Logically, we must ask: Why? However, this is missing from the article. As, harassment and assaults are already prohibited. It is against the law. Therefore, the problem lies in the "Why do people not press charges?" In the US this is often "solved" by prohibiting on a organisational level that people have non-work relationships with co-workers. I personally find this very inhumane. A better solution would be a way to address the real issue, by limiting the power of "senior" members towards the newbies. And to provide processes to deal with the harassment through mediators and of course obligatory psychological council (for both sides).
Ask Slashdot: How Often Should You Change Jobs?
If you have a job you like. Don't switch. Switching just for having switched brings you nowhere. Good reasons for switching are: Moving to another city, if you are interested in challenging work then the lack of it, other causes which make you unhappy, money, your personal career strategy, e.g., CEO of IBM.
US To Auction 29,656 Bitcoins Seized From Silk Road
You should give two bit coins. This would drive the auctionators crazy.
America 'Has Become a War Zone'
Honestly, sitting here in Germany, I wonder what is going on in the US. I've visited the US years ago and my impression was that beside some oddities (e.g., people running around with guns on the street, people telling me that the EU will be the next Roman Empire) the US is a nice place especially when it comes to its inhabitants. Nowadays, most of my information about the US is from the media (including the Internet) and I have the impression that your country is falling apart. First of all, you have a war on anything. In other countries these things are called problems or challenges. Second, your political system is constructed to suppress minority opinion resulting in an immobility of politics. And third, you have lost to solve internal conflicts. Instead you built guarded communities, like in South Africa or other developing countries. You have the highest rate on prison inmates of the world. So please FIX IT. Otherwise your broken country will also break our almost broken countries in the EU. True we have to fix our states too, but at least we are not a war zone (and yes the Ukraine is in Europe, but not part of the EU).
Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds
Nerds are a hard to define group of persons. Depending on the kind of group of people, nerds have different properties. In some context it is used as a term of honor, while other use the term to decry someone. In the article I assume to a different definition of nerd is referred to. A nerd is there a person with low self-esteem. Someone who thinks suppressed, mobbed or ignored by others. They are a little closer to the autistic side and they feel uncomfortable around other people. Even more when those people are not nerds too.
The male version of such nerds tend to have had not much experience with women and might not know how to act proper around them. They might be even aware of this fact. They might even understand the psychology of mating rituals, but as they lack the intuition (which comes from practice and success) they have an unsatisfied need in that context.
A mental solution to fix this from a personal point of view is to imitate successful role models. These figures can come from the real world or from TV, books, videos and even games. However, these role models are mostly incompatible with the present and often not compatible with any culture on earth to any given time. Nevertheless, they often carry an image of women as "bitches" or "slaves", which can result in a male behavior which is highly inappropriate.
Another solution from a personal view is projection of self-hate onto others. Example: From "I hate me for not having sex with women" the nerd makes the switch to "I hate women for rejecting me". This even works when he was not actively rejected but ignored.
Both strategies can even used together for a maximum of awkwardness and hate.
Please do not misinterpret this as "He hates nerds". I don't. I am one myself. Even though I chose a third solution and after decades I tried a fourth that worked and now I am a normal person ;-)
The third solution is suggesting to yourself that you are not interested in women beside being a friend. I tried that from 20 to 35, which worked perfectly in the beginning because I had my first girlfriend shortly after I switched to that scheme. However, that relationship only worked for some month and was totally unsatisfactorily for the next 15 years. Then I decided that a new scheme might work even better. I could try to be polite and ask women out, but first I should not look like an unwashed yeti from under the bridge. And that really worked. It would also work with people who have chosen method one or two. However, they need first to accept who they are and then accept that women are humans and equals. And acceptance is not achieved by saying it but by meaning it. If you have any trouble with that: See a shrink. I did (somehow). It worked.
ESA's Cryosat Mission Sees Antarctic Ice Losses Double
Your assumptions would be true if melting ice would be the only effect on the sea water level and the melting itself would be a linear process. However, there are other effects.
a) Due to a rising global temperature the ocean temperature is also rising in the upper water layers. These masses do also expand.
b) When the glacier speed in Antarctica is picking up more speed, as it is right now, the melting will increase and also will the rise in sea level.
c) The greater introduction of sweet water in Antarctica will effect the overall global water stream system. This system causes certain dents and bumps in the ocean surface. Changes to the system will cause changes to these dents and bumps and therefore sea level changes could be higher at some shore lines. Furthermore, this will cause a lot of local climate change.
