Not everyone's issue can be saved by cochlear implants. So deaf culture won't go extinct that easily.

On the other hand, cochlear implants are not perfect. People wearing it don't hear human-speaking as well as normal people. This is a more pressing issue - deaves are stuck in a bad expectations.

Men, change your schedule, change your office hour, change whatever you like, but don't change the clock okay?

Since Daylight Saving Time is decided by the government, the government can also change its office hour twice a year instead. Then other corporations will follow suit and things will work out in a way much much better.

1. Supposingly peer review should block such kind of "trivial paper".

2. The formula can be adjusted to (a+1)/(b+1) or something similar. Then the initial score will be (0+1)/(3+1)=1/4, while the traded score will be 11/14

Or maybe even harsher, weigh others' cites against how many citations are there. if a paper cites me, but also cite 49 other papers, then that cite only gives me 1/50 score.

Luck, that's when preparation and opportunity meet. -- P.E. Trudeau
