Is anyone making sense of this? I know what all the terms are but the facts are more or less jumbled up together in ways that don't lend themselves to meaningful comparison.
If you haven't taught yourself programming by now, there isn't much point. Just move on.
While the demand for good developers and engineers is strong and well publicized, demand for UI/UX people and tech writers is also pretty strong.
It also doesn't hurt you to know multiple spoken languages in those fields.
None of that is appealing? Create a YouTube channel of explaining the topics that you like. If you really are good at explaining and demonstrating, someone will offer you work. The ad revenue makes a nice bonus.
You should have told him to hire a brick layer and given him your two weeks notice.
They're banned in movie theaters within reason and if enough people complain or even one complains enough, you get thrown out for safety reasons.
Shame DB Cooper had to go and ruin it for the rest of us.
Sadly, most planes are not equipped with rear exit stairs or I would support this common-sense solution.
ASM, C are no where near the abstraction level of LabView.
C++ is higher but so complex that it's useless for rapid development.
Labview is at a much higher level of abstraction. Of course it's designed essentially for hardware folks to do software with a low learning curve.
Comparable level text-based languages would be something like Python or Matlab. Have you tried those?
At the post office?
Your internet service is all 4G and random WiFi?
HTML5 was created despite the W3C and without its blessing.
1) W3C is more interested in bureaucratic solutions than useful technology.
2) W3C is bought and paid for by groups whose interests align strongly with the MPAA whose essential policy is to monetize all forms of expression and total control over distribution of content.
At this point, the standards are seen mainly as a way of keeping unapproved "vendors" from creating a user-agent that might allow too much access. They seem to espouse the notion that there is still an ocean of "content" that hasn't made it to the web because there hasn't been sufficient monetary incentive to put it online. Two seconds of thought about how cable companies restrict access to their online streams (e.g. HBO Go) shows that there's no technical barriers to having more content on the web, only corporate barriers.

You use the NFL -- a viciously protective, extortionate tax-exempt monopoly -- as the standard for celebrating raw, unbridled competition? In a way, I totally agree. That IS the American ideal end-game of "free-market" "competition."
"On average, over-65s earned 26-39% less than all other age groups, including adolescents — a finding that could partially explain their susceptibility to problem gambling and scams."
Might this have something to do with the fact that age discrimination is ripe in the workplace. Try landing a well-paying corporate gig if you are over 60, no matter your skill set. It's nigh impossible. And, with decreasing job opportunities for workers over 60, one can imagine that some significant minority of them become more desperate to the point where they begin to consider irrational alternatives to making ends meet. Of course, this doesn't eliminate the fact that very senior individuals - some with excess money to burn, use that money to fill the ever-increasing, yawning gap of boredom and disconnection in their lives brought on by the social isolation of the elderly in our culture. So, I think this is more of a structural problem.
This is an excellent 30 minute documentary about texting and driving - very moving.
