Same thing happens with doctors and nurses, quite frankly.
Getting a degree requires much more persistence than competence. Nothing in what you said changes the truths of what the GP said.
I'm sorry that you remain stuck in a previous century.
I'm sorry you're stuck in the 18th Century.
Please reset your Apple Watch to the correct date. It's the 21st Century, the year is 2015.
Most PhD and Masters graduates are women nowadays. In many of the top research fields the majority of faculty are women.
Please be advised the culture shock may be severe. But you will get through it.
I'll bet the reviewers repeat ideas women in their committees say, as if they came up with the ideas themselves, too.
Who needs USB ports when you can soak up the fine clear 100 Gbps Internet2 waters?
Yes, that's 10,000 times faster than you get.
I feel the need
Ok, maybe one USB port, but it has to be USB3.
Fun fact, a corporation in Malaysia will be able to force your US State to rescind a lawsuit filed against a Malaysian owned patent troll.
Think about it.
Are you feeling like a Serf yet?
Wrong. Serfs had more rights than you do.
If Congress is for it, it probably isn't science.
"Secret Science" must be their code words for real science.
Unlicensed drivers delivering packages.
Under TPP this would be illegal.
Under many state laws this would result in the execs serving jail terms.
I'm sure nobody would call the cops on them

The main barriers I've heard of from young women trying to get into engineering careers have been, and still are:
1. Being hired.
2. Being given tasks that are just as important as the men get.
3. Not getting ignored when they say the same thing a guy repeats a minute later.
That plus sexism.
Just an observation from someone who has worked with women in engineering all my life.
Actually, the UW surgical robot is the one you see in the space training sequences of certain SF movies. Ender's Game specifically.
It actually exists.
As an example, it's very hard to get any MDs or nurses in some of the emptier remote parts of WA, BC, and ID, and at times, even if you could drive it, it's 50-100 miles to the nearest hospital over mountain passes with a heck of a lot of snow where I grew up. Some days the highway won't reopen for a week.
So something like this is way more important than you might realize.
Links aren't that fragile in many of these remote areas, as a lot of our power generation is going on there, so you can piggyback on the transmission line power at very high communication rates, but sometimes you can't even fly there, and the surgery is needed ASAP.
The platform restriction of the Alibaba mobile OS is competing with the Apple mystique for their mobile OS. Since we can measure Apple sales of mobile units, we see a sharp spike in sales in China, and thus Alibaba may not do as well with this approach as they might have otherwise.
Until they get the powers that be to block Apple, of course.
