Interviewing.io, a service which allows interviewers and interviewees to match up online and conduct interviews based on their communication skills recently set out to fix the "gender gap in tech" by creating a voice changer that would allow interviewees to mask their voice, and in turn their gender, in an attempt to tackle bigoted interviewers.

What the study revealed – to the shock of the feminists who organized it – was that women underperform in job interviews even when the interviewer believes them to be male...

Interviewing.io's Aline Lerner, who authored the report, originally hypothesized that differences in real-world interview results was down to employer discrimination against women, but the results quickly forced her to rethink her view. read more

Do students who choose to major in different fields have different academic aptitudes? This question is worth investigating for many reasons, including an understanding of what fields top students choose to pursue, the diversity of talent across various fields, and how this might reflect upon the majors and occupations a culture values...

According to a recent Payscale college salary report, STEM majors tend to be the most highly compensated. That STEM majors have consistently had the highest average academic aptitude may also reflect the fact that STEM disciplines are highly complex and require such aptitude...

lol, a serious presidential candidate and her campaign is taking out time to disparage an internet meme.

that damn white nationalist frog/internet cartoon! damn alt-right! damn-hrrghghrgaghh!

this selection season has really jumped the shark. anything and everything to shift the focus from hillary's ill health.

I couldn't help but notice that nobody contested what the NYTimes had to say about this subject. I figured you'd like them more than the "Clinton Cash" documentary -- a messenger which could easily be killed.

"Now make a case for why I should care."

Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies.

Is NYTimes "myth-led"?

Offer something other than an ad hominem, and I might come back.

UN: Suspend Saudi Arabia from Human Rights Council:

Saudi Arabia, as the leader of the nine-nation coalition that began military operations against the Houthis in Yemen on March 26, 2015, has been implicated in numerous violations of international humanitarian law. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have documented 69 unlawful airstrikes by the coalition, some of which may amount to war crimes, killing at least 913 civilians and hitting homes, markets, hospitals, schools, civilian businesses, and mosques.

They didn't do that with home-brewed weapons. We them the materiel that's being used in war crimes.
