I wanted to share this with you guys. Last summer I tried to kickstart my book. I put my everything into my kickstarter campaign. I had a flyer made and everything. My project was featured on several different blogs and I had a pretty fierce marketing campaign. I even paid for one of those kickstarter advertisment things where they will tweet and post about your campaign every single day. Despite all of that I only raised $671 dollars in 30 days. I was completly distraught. I was so upset with myself. I had all of these posters in my room and a stack of bookmarks,the only printout I could afford to produce were my bookmarks. I left my manuscript and all of my kickstarter stuff alone for a long time. I couldnt even look at it. I cant pin point when it happened but I decided to try agian. My heart had healed and I felt like I should try agian. I had no idea what was going to happen but I knew I would never know unless I tried. I learned from my mistakes and I relaunched my project on Indiegogo. Last night was the final night for my project and not only did I reach my goal but I raised extra money as well. I hope that anyone reading this who’s a creative person will gain strength from this. If you fail the first time,its ok! You can try agian! Regroup yourself,keep networking,keep trying new things and when you feel better try agian. You never know what will happen if you try agian. I did and now I’m in the process of publishing my first scifi novel as an e-book.
The Jobs I Didn’t See: My Misconceptions of the Academic Job Market
I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Bucknell University, a liberal arts university in central Pennsylvania. This is the…
By Evan Peck

Top-notch point here about assessing the academic job market from the vantage point of grad school/postdoc-hood:

The stories we listen to about life in academia are largely formed by the experiences of professors who’ve spent decades working in research universities and collaborating with colleagues at other research universities. It’s not malicious or misleading, just biased.

Name: Nicole
Age: 17
Country: USA

Hey everyone! I’m Nicole, a bisexual Latina that was born in Peru and raised in the SF area. I’m currently a sophomore at Arizona State’s honors college, majoring in marketing and political science with a prelaw emphasis! I’m definitely an ambitious person, but I also absolutely love making new friends – if anyone wants to marathon good TV shows via Skype, I’m your girl! Other interests of mine include reading/writing, music, terrible jokes, and martial arts training. I read Time enthusiastically and have a minor obsession with Cutthroat Kitchen. I’d love to exchange artist/book/movie preferences with someone – always looking to learn more and broaden my horizons a little. Can’t wait to meet you!

Preferences: I don’t have any age preferences – if you think I sound cool, I’ll probably think the same of you, haha! It’d be wonderful to meet someone that speaks Portuguese, as I’m trying to brush up on it, but in general I’m hoping to meet people that are different than me, so we can learn from each other B)

imagine eds kids in history class though like the teacher's going on and on about the promised day and some big fucking coup and all this borning shit and they says something about "edward elric" and now the ENTIRE class is staring at eds kids like "👀 ur dad did what now"

“Your nerdy dad did all that?! The same one who always makes science jokes down at the market, and won the pie eating contest at last year’s sheep festival? HE helped a coup and saved the country?!”

anonymous asked:

Same anon, again, I just wanted to know if there are any opportunities for employment after having just a Bsc in CS.

Hey again!

I don’t know much about the job market in the US, but technically a B.Sc. should give you enough skills/knowledge to work in the industry. I think it all depends on where you want to work (development, game industry, more research oriented…) on what possible employers might want from their employees. Doing a lot of coding and building up your own “code resumee” (i.e. your private projects hosted publicly on e.g. github for employers to look through) will definitely help. BUT: I didn’t do any of that and still got a job (in Germany and with a master’s, but still).

Any of my US-based followers with an overview of the job market there? Please help this anon!

Petition to stop training girls to think maths is hard

omg I’m so angry about this I think I’m gonna make it my life’s mission.

Stop teaching girls that drama lessons are fun and exciting but that maths is hard or boring or scary.

Stop teaching girls that you have to be super clever to do maths.

Stop enforcing the mindset that makes girls think that people who enjoy maths are ‘geeks’; stop enforcing the mindset that people who enjoy maths are weird or different or should be excluded or bullied.

Stop enforcing the mindset that makes girls embarrassed to admit they enjoy maths.

Stop selling t-shirts with crappy anti-maths slogans; stop making jokes on tv and in films that normalize girls being bad at maths.

Stop making it so ok to not like maths that girls think it’s ok not to even try to understand it.

Stop permitting the mindset that you’re never gonna use maths in real life, because it’s inexcusable.

Teach girls that maths is easy.

Show girls what maths is used for.

Show girls all the incredible things that people, and that women, have used maths for.

Show girls how to use maths to make your life easier, cheaper, better, to get a better job and a better career, to get a higher salary.

Show girls how maths is useful no matter what your career is, whether you work in science or marketing or product design or dressmaking or in a shop.

Teach girls that maths is logic, that it’s instructions. That it never changes, that it’s just simple rules that you follow.

Teach girls that maths is easy, because training them that its hard from infancy will create a block in their mind and stop them from ever being able to enjoy it.

Maths is fucking awesome, and everybody should know that.

Training girls that it’s hard is criminal.


Whoa. This is so messed up.

This is the Milgram Experiment taken to the next level (incidentally, my father-in-law is a well-published behavioral science and marketing expert who used to conduct similar experiments - though never to this level - back in the day. I find all this fascinating). 

I think the connection between social compliance/subservience and politics should be self-evident.
