Submission + - Baby, I'm Worth It: 13% of CompSci Grads Have Starting Salaries Over $100K->

itwbennett writes: That was one of the findings of a survey of 50,000 U.S. college students and recent graduates by Looksharp, a marketplace for internships and entry-level jobs. For general findings across all majors, check out Looksharp's State of College Hiring Report 2015. But the company shared some more computer science-specific findings with ITworld's Phil Johnson. Among them: 'Of all majors, students studying in CS had the highest average starting salary, $66,161.' And, what's more, they know the value of their degree: 'On average, they expected a starting salary of $68,120, slightly above the actual average starting salary of $66,161.'

Submission + - Wireless system allows omnidirectional multiple device charging in 0.5m range->

An anonymous reader writes: A new wireless charging system is being developed by scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), which can charge multiple devices simultaneously and up to a 50cm distance – no matter which direction the devices are facing [http://www.kaist.ac.kr/_prog/_board/?code=ed_news&mode=V&no=37305&upr_ntt_no=37305&site_dvs_cd=en&menu_dvs_cd=060101]. According to KAIST, the charging pad delivers 30 watts of charging power and can accommodate up to 30 smartphones or five laptops at any one time. The components must be attached to a specially designed transmitting coil which receives the power from the main charging system.

Comment They're not for everyone (Score 2) 144 144

I loved the 4th of July and all things fireworks as a kid. The bigger the better. However, after Iraq they've given me trouble ever since. My first year back was especially problematic and I didn't realize they'd bother me that much, so I just sat in the back of an RV during the fireworks show we went to.

Comment So much for personal responsibility (Score 1) 1032 1032

"It struck me as absurd that one could amass crippling debt as a result, not of drug addiction or reckless borrowing and spending, but of going to college."

Apparently it never struck him that borrowing for a college degree with a shitty ROI _is_ reckless borrowing. This is the real problem, people going to college and getting degrees they know full well have no feasible way of paying off said debt, or don't know because they were too careless and/or stupid to look up what that career will actually pay.

About time someone told the truth.

For those who are unaware, Clarey is a blogger and writer and does not identify as an MRA. If anything he's more of a MGTOW than anything else. In fact, his book Enjoy The Decline is the antithesis to what MRAs stand for. Instead of trying to change things, he's advocating men stop investing in society and kick back and watch Rome burn rather than try to save it. It's his belief things are simply too far gone at this point for society to save itself by reengaging men and has little to offer in the way of marriage and traditional gender roles that see men as providers and protectors.

Funny thing is, this has nothing to do with men's rights. The article is factually incorrect, and I suspect on purpose as a way of discrediting the MRA crowd since they do have legit grievances that challenge the status quo.
