  • This is fine.



    Polygon is one the major blockchains we use at my day job. My year started out with it falling apart due to a viral game called Sunflower Farmers, and it's just not getting any better. Trying to move house while working 18 hours a day is not fun.

9 Here's a new-to-me word that I tripped over today, and its companion word:

initialism |iˈniSHəˌlizəm|
noun
an abbreviation consisting of initial letters pronounced separately (e.g., CPU).

acronym |ˈakrəˌnim|
noun
an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word (e.g., ASCII, NASA).

I had thought both of those were acronyms.

Not 'lunch time strippers' but I went to a Hooters once and was disappointed in both the menu choices and the servers. Sure, shorts, pantyhose, and a low cut top is a good look, but the young women weren't all that attractive.

53 I am happy to report that my son successfully graduated from community college with a degree in biology. He had one required class-Genetics- and one class he was taking just because he was interested-Field Botany. The professor said that the students could apply for paid internships in the field (I don't know if it's literally in the field, Reminds me of that Sandra Boynton cartoon with a cow standing in the field and when you open it up the card says "Congratulations to someone who's outstanding in the field.") if they had a B+ average. He doesn't know if he has a B+ average because he hasn't gotten any tests back.

Anyway, if the praying folks could pray that he gets some kind of job related to agricultural studies so that he could make some money for school before he transfers, it would be much appreciated. Thanks very much.

Thanks very much. It has been quite a journey and we are proud of him even if he doesn't get a paid internship. Now we have to figure out how to pay for the next two years of schooling. And I know people here bemoan college being a waste of time, but the school he's been accepted to has a good agricultural studies program and is very big on work study programs and practical experience. Hopefully coming in as a Junior will mean he missing the intense wokeism in classes he'd get as as a Freshman.

76 Rural America could have the solution to the growing tech skills crisis.

*

There is no "growing tech skills crisis."

Our betters decided there were some jobs Americans wouldn't do, remember? So they imported leeches to do them for fast food wages (or illegally under the table) while the people who had built the system were let go and laughed at and made to find crappy jobs elsewhere.

Now that the system is collapsing from our betters' decision to hire illegally - which I'm going to say manipulation of the visa system absolutely is - and it's coming back to haunt them, suddenly THEY have a crisis.

But it was fine to fire the Americans. That wasn't a crisis.

Knowing what I know now, if he doesn't have a clear plan for his future but he does have a two year degree, I would encourage him to get on with a city or state in a job that is somewhat interesting and has a bit of upward mobility. Water plant operators easily make $50K/year or so plus all the overtime they want. DOT workers and inspectors are similar, and they aren't pushing shovels. Get in and get going and retire at 50 with government benefits.

Without a plan in that field that's the sort of thing it's likely he'll be looking at after the debt of a four year school anyway. Good luck and prayers for wisdom.

Radiology (low patient contact) is mostly men. Pediatrics is mostly women. GEE I WONDER WHY.

My wife has a combo degree of 'early education' and psychology. It's kinda important on the early end to be aware of where children fit on the norm and flag them for early intervention for issues with speech, hearing, vision, behavior, etc. I actually believe the psych degree is more important then the education degree.

One year her class had the highest achieving class average on a standardized test given to all the students in our county of over 500,000 people. I don't recall how many schools were involved.

Yup, my wife was Parochial school early ed, and I spent half a decade there myself. All the teachers (with one very notable exception - the one with the 'COEXIST' bumper sticker) were top notch and the results vs other schools were highly impressive. But it is a burden for parents to pay for BOTH the public and the private schools. Politicians love to talk about vouchers but I have yet to see a single state permit them. The public school teachers unions are just too damn powerful.

I stopped watching any TV news -- including Fox News Channel -- during the summer of the 2004 Presidential campaign. It was then that I realized all the TV news personalities were fake and not really taking "brave" stances on any politician or topic.

The last straw for me was when Bill O'Reilly straddled the fence regarding the Swift Boat Veterans and their criticisms of John Kerry. Previously, I liked watching him as he seemed to use his final commentary segment to take hard stances on issues. When I saw him flake out regarding the Swift Boat Veterans, I knew he was a fraud. And I then gave up on all of it.

Thankfully, it was during the time that political blogs were gaining popularity and I have gotten my news exclusively from blogs ever since. 18 years free of TV news.
