What we need is the EU/UN to actually get off their asses and do something. This is happening right next door to them but they just don't want their oil and gas disrupted. The only country that is moderately energy independent of Russian gas/oil would be the UK and they are not going to go in it alone. We really need the France, UK, and Germany to step in if we want to see Putin stopped.
Just set the price point low-enough to be believable and tantalizing and they will come in droves.
Is it the "field" that is hard to get into? I'd say yes. I have a Masters in Information Assurance and a CISSP and I have been fielding interviews left and right to land an IA gig. They just don't want anybody and you have to find your niche and develop it. Do the URD perceive this as racist/sexist behavior when really its just the way the game is played?
Is it the "scene"? Are the URD not aware that just about everyone in IT is a bit of a weirdo and have a hard time socializing with ourselves let alone someone new? We all just basically ignore and avoid one-on-one and intra-personal communication unless we absolutely have too. Very common to have one-way conversations. Not normal just the way a lot of us are.
Is it "cultural"? Is there some barrier that makes a segment of the URD simply not want to pursue it? At either a cultural, societal, human level? Considering that you can do a lot of this work from home, it'd be ideal for working mothers, or, the disabled. But, where are they?
I just know of so many positions for all aspects within the IT field that they'll take anyone. I'm listening to interviews for a network engineer at my current company that can do modeling. They are willing to take me and my experience with OpNet is strictly from an academic stand point via my class labs. I just have another full-time commitment so I can't. A PM was walking around begging for security engineers. They don't care who, they just want a body that can do the work.
What is it exactly?
This is also how they took down a stealth fighter over Kosovo, they used 900MHz-band cell towers, tuned ground radar station to look for the return, and then manually guided the missiles until they were close enough (probably for the heat signature to become evident) to lock on.
I really hope this was all factored into the design of these multi-billion money pit of an aircraft.
For the US you can look this up, the manual is published and freely available.
Yes, yes, yes, the system can be gamed but that's a different topic.
