This will be a good test for that theory, for sure.
Technology for technology's sake is pointless.
Slashdot. News for Nerds, Stuff That Matters
Your privacy concerns are valid, but how is disliking technology for technology's sake, which is something I think that all nerds do, nerdy? Sometimes, this site confuses me.
Did you read TFA? Or did you choose sentences to read randomly? Those we're quoted as the results that worked. In fact, here is the original paragraph:
Ten of the effects were consistently replicated across different samples. These included classic results from economics Nobel laureate and psychologist Daniel Kahneman at Princeton University in New Jersey, such as gain-versus-loss framing, in which people are more prepared to take risks to avoid losses, rather than make gains1; and anchoring, an effect in which the first piece of information a person receives can introduce bias to later decisions2. The team even showed that anchoring is substantially more powerful than Kahneman’s original study suggested.
Two that didn't were about social priming, one was currency priming, in which participants supported what I assume is the current state of capitalism after seeing money, and the other, priming feelings of patriotism with a flag. Moreover, both original authors we're positive about it:
Social psychologist Travis Carter of Colby College in Waterville, Maine, who led the original flag-priming study, says that he is disappointed but trusts Nosek’s team wholeheartedly, although he wants to review their data before commenting further. Behavioural scientist Eugene Caruso at the University of Chicago in Illinois, who led the original currency-priming study, says, “We should use this lack of replication to update our beliefs about the reliability and generalizability of this effect”, given the “vastly larger and more diverse sample” of the Many Labs project. Both researchers praised the initiative.
There you go, quoting the article directly since you can't be bothered to read it. It is true that they apparently chose what some consider to be important effects and the evidence against social priming is upsetting to some. Still, the fact that verification actually happened and people are happy about it shows science is alive and kicking.
Anyway, another cool thing about this study should be that it uses this thing, the open science framework which I haven't heard about until today, but seems pretty cool.
I know this is a repeated meme, and I, myself, taught myself C when I was 14. However, I've never seen any statistics about this, I wonder if this really is the usual case.
Whether it is a problem and whether France of Switzerland can come out of these laws unscathed (or bettered), we in America obviously can't hope to do the same. We can't even copy the rest of the modern world and implement a decent healthcare system, so who thinks we could solve this issue?
The other competitor which shall not be named has a better method of "public image management." It's simple: with each of their devices they sell, it comes equipped with a state-of-the-art RDF generator that turns the purchasers into fully obedient drones who will take to the internet forums and defend the company themselves! Since these drones are now merely subservient beings to the corporate will, they don't need to be paid; in fact, the effects of RDF ensure that they will throw themselves at the stores the next time the company delivers a new product, even for the most incremental and mundane updates! The shills will pay you!
lmfao this was modded as informative, fucking lol
I know, we should just ionize lead until it is a nucleus, then we'll have 82 charges! These guys aren't thinking big enough.

I know too much about this. I'm a Korea-phile, so last year I applied to a graduate school in South Korea and they required me to download like 2 or so add-ons to IE to even complete the online application.
There's more good stuff from your link:
Omitted in this “scientific text” is the existence of other scientific data and theories, for example, the cyclical nature of the planet’s climate and the impact of solar activity on Earth’s temperatures. Nor does it mention the fact that the concept of man-made global warming is most actively promoted by those politicians who have a vested interest in imposing government regulations, which would allow them a greater control over the economy and people’s lives.
Sounds like she's just upset that she isn't drilling her own ideology into the students.
I'm agreeing with Toe, The. (That's an awkward name to type out). This is like putting down the singleton code pattern because there is one bad implementation of it that you've come across. The Common Core are standards which, actually, give a lot of freedom to the individual states (once again following the Federalist pattern).
Digging a little deeper, we have this tid-bit about what 1st graders should learn about addition and subtraction:
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Nothing about making drawings that put pennies into cups. May be it should say "using objects in familiar and sensible fucking ways"? But what can you expect. It's a standard, not a rule for writing tests...plus, you'd expect more intelligence from the people actually writing the tests.
If anything, this could give air to the argument that the Common Core is too vague, which is what the point of it was. Apparently, it was drafted in such a way to give freedom to the states and local educators to decide the best way to teach 1st graders how to add and subtract within 20. If anything, that says DOE should have more say in what and how states teach their kids to avoid them fucking up like this.
I have a Midterm tomorrow, so I'm studying.
When the prof found out it would be tomorrow on Halloween night, he said it was quite fitting.
I don't think people from the other side (like me) who are sane think capitalism is bad. The issue is capitalism isn't the point of society, instead, it should be a tool to promote common good, to increase the utility of society.
So, profit isn't bad, as it increases utility in society. Whoever, when capitalism becomes the point, the motivation, that is when we draw the line. It's like a CS instructor focusing on teaching C or C++ but not teaching how to program with any tool they can find. Some tools are better (I think capitalism with some restrictions is the best) than others for certain jobs. However, let's not read too far into the tool beyond its utility to us.
Let's see...clicking around TFA's website:
