Does anyone know how the virus can penetrate a hermetically sealed suit?

It cant, but when the health worker does not use care to disinfect and properly remove the gear, he/she may not as well have worn the suit in the first place.
One of the workers infected in africa admitted that that was the cause of their infection; accidentaly touching their bare skin with the outside of the suit.

I guess you cocksucking faggots should have used Microsoft Windows Server instead of something as insecure as Linux. For best results use Microsoft Windows, faggots!

Oh man, this comment has me pissing my pants laughing. Its so over the top. it should be in a Will Ferrel movie. If you are not trying to be funny, that would make it even more hilarious. Hehe.

You'd be surprised. It seems every time there is change in the tech sphere, Slashdot is the first to voice skepticism and discomfort.

I like to think of it as tempered opposition to running headlong towards the latest fad or 'next big thing'.

Maybe we should only let people smart enough to figure it out go to college

Fuck you and your holier than thou attitude. Your touching story is a great example of how in america, if you just work hard enough, just try, you will win in the end. You will be debt free with a husband and a house, working at the Mayo clinic.

La - de - fucking - da. Your story represents about 1% of america bud. Its a fucking fantasy and not even possible for most people. Maybe all us 'stupid' people should just be put down like rabid dogs, so we don't tarnish your perfect world. Come down off your Ivory Tower and meet the rest of the people in your society you self righteous ass hat.

What this tells me, is that there is clearly a demand that is not being met by 'traditional' colleges/universities. These schools offer people a chance at a diploma that they can put on their resume. If you don't have that piece of paper on your resume, you are not even going to get an interview regardless of how knowledgeable you are in the field (unless you have a contact inside the company already).

These schools give people, who maybe got off to a bad start, a chance to go to classes in the evenings, it is a path for those students who were not necessarily 'good' at school and would score poorly on an ACT or SAT test. When more and more of the jobs those people used to get go overseas or to mexico, they have to have some way into the 'new' economy. Either that or they find a way to game the system with welfare/disability (or get stuck forever in working poverty). They have to live, they have to feed their families. These schools offer them a way to do that. (or more likely, the false hope that they can do that)

I think the traditional colleges need to take notice and start offering programs that mimic what these for-profit schools offer. Flexible schedules for adult students, shorter paths to a certificate or diploma, etc. Side note: aren't all colleges 'for profit'? I see the million dollar salaires of university presidents, massive coffers, and multi-billion dollar sport franchises and have to think that they are all 'for-profit'; the profit just goes in different directions.
