  1. As of 2020, women represent less than 30% of researchers worldwide, with well-documented bias built-in to a STEM career, top positions often beyond their reach and manifest pay gaps, particularly for women of colour. Women have won only 5.4% of Nobel Prizes in physiology or medicine, 3.8% in chemistry, and 1.9% in physics. Even in fields with greater gender-balance, the pipeline leaks as women leave and more men reach the top. Multiple barriers stymie the careers of women, particularly those that decide to have children. These include everyday work-place sexism, role stereotyping, devaluing, a
  2. I've been predicting it for years, and now many others are starting to speak about the new day that is dawning in education. Yes, public schools are still engaging in their eternal struggle to turn out educated graduates, though one can easily argue that was never the goal of mass compulsory schooling from the start. However, many people are starting to see that their education is truly in their own hands. The internet is changing how we view our options. The college inflation bubble will burst, just as the markets crashed and the housing bubble popped. Why should people be saddled with de
  3. I am always curious about the future. How will things evolve? How much fun and opportunities will arise? Specially in technology, everything is improving so fast! I have been thinking about it and i will tell you the most important breakthroughs that are highly probable to happen (they are my life goals too) for the next 50 years (and how they relate to technology). 1 — Quantum Computing I always hated being limited by classic physics (one of my greatest fears). Quantum theories have expanded the horizons a lot. One of its greatest practical uses is computing. It’s so fascinating ho
  4. Let’s realize, rude Palestinian antisemitic propaganda only confirms our conviction, that we Israelis must resist antisemitic hordes, including Iran, Hizbullah and Palestine. Palestinian antisemitic theater is designed to give pretext to the new Holocaust. We will resist all Palestinian theatrical tricks, rockets, terror actions, Iran-Hizbullah rockets and Syrian chemistry. We continue to build a strong army, and we will continue to occupy our Palestinian antisemitic neighbors until they wage war to annihilate us. 1920 Nebi Mussa pogrom will never repeat. We’ll fight off the New Holocaust atte
  5. I used data from the World Bank to show world wide levels of education. The report is here http://gsociology.icaap.org/report/wb/ED/WorldBankEducation.html Summary: Basically, the WB has three indicators, literacy rate, secondary enrollment and tertiary enrollment. Literacy rate has the most missing data, secondary enrollment the least. The three indicators are fairly well correlated. Worldwide, there is a wide differences between countries with the highest and lowest secondary enrollment rates. Several countries in Sub-Saharan Africa have enrollment rates below 25% (Niger, Central African
