    Video Analysis: Women in Politics

    And your point is what you want 50:50 100? Would that exist IRL or magically in your head? How do you plan to make that IRL? I would prefer women earn their position fair and square and not because some bleeding heart thinks so because they have a vag. And why focus on quantity rather than...

    Video Analysis: Women in Politics

    Huh? Who's blaming women for what again? You mean women at the top of the organizational food chain have minimal involvment? What a patronizing view of women. Last time I checked they can mess up or fix stuff equally as men.

    Video Analysis: Women in Politics

    Yup it's called the Philippines. Women already have been President, House Speaker and Chief Justice positions here not to mention business and the academe. Is that really a big deal for you guys? People in power mess up things regardless of gender. :yuri::yaoi:

    Since we have this here anyways, can I ask what the forum's opinion on data scraping and data mining INTPf info. I was thinking of making data scrapers to practice my coding skills and want to see if it's okay with the forum.

    Video Analysis: Women in Politics

    Uh huh, so the "victim" was actually a man convicted for assault and will get deported anyway. Good job hero. It's this knee-jerk virtue signaling that I don't like. Do these guys even plan for the short term on the legal repercussions of their actions and the victims' background? On women on...

    Fi and samurai animé

    OP maybe you should go for josei and seinen titles instead of shounen. As we grow older, shounen anime and manga tends to look more immature.

    P-hacking and scientific integrity

    Here's an interesting article about predatory journals and their relationship with academics. It's not a predatory relationship but more of a symbiotic one. Yeah, it's an institutional problem. Articles are written by several people and should have been reviewed by more senior researchers...

    P-hacking and scientific integrity

    This is a researcher problem rather than a Science/ Social Science problem. We're humans too and will lie, cheat and steal if it will get stuff published or projects funded. Of course, some erroneous results are just due to human error though. I'm with Serac on this one. If a research result is...

    Well you can go for urban farming. You could start with something simple like soda bottle gardens: If you're feeling a bit ambitious you can go for exotic crops through a greenhouse or aquaponics. It will help lower your food expenses, will cause you some mental and physical harm (exercise...

    In pursuit of self-actualization and happiness

    A bit close. My personal life situation is okay in society's standards but I think I can do better and I can become much happier. Programming is something that I am studying and enjoying, hopefully it can help me reach that happiness.

    In pursuit of self-actualization and happiness

    We do have a shame culture too although not as hardcore as that of the Japanese. We do prefer running amok or suicide by cop as a "proper" means of committing suicide. Would totally be cool if our politicians have a better sense of shame though :P

    I was thinking of working on its sister field, bioinformatics. Computational biologists seems to be programmers/mathematicians who learned that they can apply their stuff to biology. Bioinfo on the other hand are biologists who learned some bit of programming.

    In pursuit of self-actualization and happiness

    I dont have a problem with motivation and confidence per se, I think the problem is that the goals are not mine/for me. Let me put it this way. Currently: I want to study X because my family needs the status and the extra income. What I want: I want to study X because its fun and makes me...

    Yup, welcome to collectivism :P I'll wager that what I'm feeling is a common problem in the East, probably worse in more hierarchal societies. Aside from the not having kids yet, I'm basically a proper son/husband in society's perspective. Oddly, the restlessness is partly because I think my...

    In pursuit of self-actualization and happiness

    As the sole male bearing our family name, I had the ideal of being "a decent father and husband" as my main motivation for self-growth during my younger years. It's a rather impossible task (since I believe that I'll be shitty on both roles forever) but it helped me work on my finances...

    For context: Immigration to Australia: Skilled Points Test Anyways, I'll go with building your resume in Singapore first for a few years after graduation. 18-24 year olds gain +25 points while 25-32 gain +30 so you actually gain points by working on your resume. PS: I have Filipino friends who...

    How do you deal with negative emotions?

    The self-care method only works on the emotions/feeling part. Using a dental issue analogy, I think self-care is more of addressing the pain of a tooth abscess rather than ignoring the pain and fever associated with it. The belief system needs to be talked to/worked with another...

    Motivation issues

    I'm a gamer so I write my "Things to do today" on a list and my mind subconsciously wants to finish the "daily quests" that I wrote. It makes motivation almost automatic.

    Or just make supersoldiers in his own image and genetic makeup. ;) Yeah, mass drivers would be cool in the future. But I think countries should focus on making those and space elevators instead rather than warring.

    I find math fun. You get a formula, you plug in values and out comes your result. Sweet and simple. There's no risk of failing due to getting butter fingers like Analytical Chem and no chance for your cell culture to not cooperate like Microbio. I think the problem with people is that they...

    Last movie you watched

    Watched Geostorm. Fun, action-filled disaster movie but forgettable people/ story. It could've been better if they trimmed off the fat such as the gov't conspiracy and focus on the technology and the cast involved. The special agent lady, Butler and the main Big Bad was great but they can't pull...

    At a career crossroads…

    Unfortunately, the higher you climb, the more leadership, networking, and trust become more important. There's also a time when one switches from student to mentor along the way. Being on the autistic spectrum, I can only cope rather than master client/colleague heavy jobs. I think you're on...

    the morality of frankeistein and genetic engineering

    Now that's basic microbiology and/or chemistry. You just need large amount of culture media/cells to breed bacteria and viruses for your warfare needs. As for insect warfare, it's kinda less dramatic but still debilitating. See the 1989 medfly attack.

    Oh dear, but I do think there's a need for an explanation. Basically, the President has a narcissistic streak and is not cool with people criticizing his murdering spree.
