Women In Science Disadvantaged: Work By Male Scientists Associated With Higher Quality

Women In Science Disadvantaged: Work By Male Scientists Associated With Higher Quality

Commented Apr 22, 2013 at 12:36:00 in Women

“I'm confused, they asked communication students (not scientists) to review non-scientific abstracts (not chemistry, physics or biology abstracts) then drew a conclusion about women in scientific fields? Is there a connection I'm missing?”

“no - its junk - women have so many opportunities in science. The government and private industry are throwing money at any young woman even slightly inclined to science just to pursue those fields and they still do not. It has nothing to do with a lack of opportunity at the collegiate level.”

“She's 37. Too old to start a mma career with nothing in her background (olympic wrestling, boxing, K-1 etc.) Forget the UFC”

“This is a whole lot of nothing. Fallon Fox is already 37 years old and has negligible fighting experience. She's past her prime and hasn't even really accomplished anything yet. She'll hang around regional circuits, but the UFC ain't gonna happen. Too old, no credentials.”

“I wish they had put that in the article.”

“So in your model drug innovation is 100% driven by NIH research? Say goodbye healthy and robust pharma pipelines.”

“Actually, it's already there. The $2 billion or so spent by Pharma on "R&D" is almost ALL spent on patenting the results of the publicly available government sponsored work, and has been for decades now....”

“So your business model would continue to support a system proven unwieldy by India, Brazil and South Africa? It's interesting that Big Pharma will tell Americans not to import meds because the chain of control isn't proven to be maintained, yet the SAME drugs they pimp on Americans at the world's highest prices are routinely manufactured in foreign countries? So I should believe that Novartis, for example, has control over a shipper that the shipper doesn't already have? What special kind of gullible rube would fall for such a specious argument?”

“I'm fine with that. What we have now is just making us all broke.”

Race Indeed Does Matter in the Classroom

Commented Mar 11, 2013 at 14:26:36 in Black Voices

“So more people of color should be encouraged to get teaching degrees. If the problem is not enough teachers of color, then you need a larger pool of qualified teachers of color to hire from. You're suggesting we increase the demand, but not suggesting (or even addressing) a solution to the low supply.”
