Are IQ tests to be trusted or is the system flawed in how they are scored/admission of the test? Basically, is labeling everyone with a number always accurate? Are there any highly accurate IQ tests floating on the internet, or is the internet just a recycle bin of 145 IQ facebook tests?

99% of job interviews (99.999% in the case of tech giants) are all about networking, a normalfag term for nepotism. Math majors are usually more introverted, so their networking skills (read: nepotism) are weaker.

brainlet here, did number 51 for about 10 times yet the solution kept giving me
y = -16 and I know for a fact that ain't the solution.

I provided the LCD which is 20, got rid of the fractions, distributed, just don't know what to do next since it'll give me the same wrong solution.

You have to multiply the ENTIRE SIDE by the LCD
You can only make the mistake you made because you've memorized tactics of "cancelling numbers" and "moving numbers around" like you're doing modern art

Take a step back and think about what an equation actually means. The whole left side equals the whole right side.
If a = b, then 20a = 20b, right?

Then if (a+c) = (b+d), 20(a+c) = 20(b+d).

Psychopatic is "psychopatic" and not conjoined with intelegence.

Yeah in general over the whole spectrum of humanity.

But maybe in a university setting there is some truth to the whole short=smart. I think it is just that those people have nothing else going for them besides their brains. That's how they manage to be here despite their shortcomings.

>> No.9064562


The whole IQ correlates with intelligence/wealth/attractiveness/health is true but you need to realize that the correlation is strongest on the lowest end of the spectrum.

Basically, if you are ugly as sin, you are probably very unfortunate in your circumstances and happen to not have the best of health and probably that also means you have low IQ and are poor.

What's your experience with academic conferences?

I'm currently at my third one and I've found that they all have a lot in common, mainly:

An over abundance of Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean presenters who are obviously intelligent and have come up with some valid research but are too autistic to convey any of it. Apart from terrible English, they are unable to respond to any questions from the audience because it's not written down on paper for them. They often read word for word what's on their slides at a gruelling pace, yet are unable to convey the gist of their research or deliver it in a way that makes sense for those who don't study that particular field.

What's /sci/'s experience with working with Asians in general, in scientific or research type work?

>> No.9063924

It's probably because 75% of them have someone else take the qualifying English exam for grad school and as a result, they've found themselves in a society they can't effectively communicate in. Aka why all Asian professors research partners are back at Peking university

What does sci think about vertical farming technologies like: Aeroponics, Aquaponics, Hydroponics?

In addition what do you think about the advancement of LED technology especially with application to growing plants. Such as unique rest/light timings for faster growth.

Will genetic engineering and synthetic biology be huge for optimizing for vertical farming? Do you think the future is instead in vitro meat and vat-created foods rather than "grown" through natural processes? Does Vertical Farming counter some fears of climate change making farming unpredictable?

Why is this veggie farming thread getting bombarded with pro-entomophagy? The two are completely unrelated. Don't you realize you need to feed those insects? Where do you think the food for them comes from?

Insects don't really taste all that good. You really have to grow up eating them to enjoy them. I prefer to feed them to my chickens as part of a permaculture system where the chickens clean the crops free of insects, and fertilize the fields & orchards, all without me doing a damn thing. I get veggies, fruit, meat, and eggs.

There are papers on plants uptaking plastic leached chemicals. It is the only reason I don't do aquaponics. That and the fish also take in the same thing. I've worked in several hydroponics greenhouses. I personally utilize vertical gardening indoors in the winter. Though, I use soil-based techniques. I have 40sq feet of growing space per 4x8 shelving unit. Electric for the LEDs/fans cost about $40 per shelving unit per month. I only do this for "starts" that are set out in spring for normal gardening, but it saves me several hundred dollars a year. When I get a greenhouse up, I won't need to use the LEDs and I'll be able to grow year round crops instead of just starts.

Vertical farming is a good thing, but I think the further you remove something from a complete ecosystem the less value it has.

You only have a high probability of getting diseases from eating raw meat from farms where animals are crammed together, which facilitates disease spreading. If you eat raw meat from nature reserves then you'd have a similar chance of catching diseases as any other animal.

The cosmological constant is the energy density of empty space. It's positive.
Space is expanding, distant galaxies are all redshifted etc. There's now more empty space than there was before.
More empty space than before means more energy than before with positive cosmological constant.
To make matters worse the expansion is accelerating. The universe's increase in energy is increasing at an increasing rate.

The universe is creating energy from nothing.
How is this allowed?

Could you seal a cubic meter of vacuum in a strong steel box to keep it at a constant size and siphon off the expansion energy to power a small city?
