Submission + - Encouraging Students to Drop Mathematics

Coryoth writes: "The BBC is reporting that students in the UK are being encouraged to drop math at the senior levels. It seems that schools are seeking to boost their standing on league tables by encouraging students not to take "hard" subjects like mathematics, in favour of easier subjects in which they are assured good grades. The result is Universities being forced to provide remedial math classes for science students who haven't done math for two years. The BBC provides a comparison between Chinese and UK university entrance tests — a comparison that makes the UK look woefully behind. Is the UK slipping behind in science education?"

Submission + - Anti-Spam CAPTCHA Inspired by Andy Warhol

An anonymous reader writes: Tired of 'typing the garbled letters below' every time you create an online account or submit a comment? You might be done with scrambled letters quite soon, thanks to two students at Brigham Young University. Recent research has shown that computers are better than humans in filling out some forms of visual CAPTCHA. Inspired by this problem, the BYU students created a new form of visual CAPTCHA, bearing a striking resemblance to the postmodernistic works of Andy Warhol. To demonstrate the CAPTCHA, an interesting anti-spam app allows users to post their email address on their blog, webpage, social network, etc., without running the risk of having their email address spam-harvested. Visitors to the site/blog/etc must first successfully pass a CAPTCHA before being presented with the user's actual email address.

The Warhol Proof is available for use free of charge for any purpose at
