There is something very satisfying about authentic answers.

Agreed! The context and personal color to the answer makes it more meaningful and memorable. It's not just a stat or a blurb.

Calling all those who are interested in graduate school and an engineering degree, from junior high school students to those who have completed a Masters degree:

The University of Wisconsin is now accepting applications for the annual Opportunities in Engineering Conference. All expenses including travel and room and board are paid by the College of Engineering. Applicants selected to participate will hear faculty research presentations, tour laboratories, meet with graduate students and individually with faculty in their area of interest, and tour the city of Madison as well as the UW campus. 

The conference objective is to increase the number of domestic engineering students receiving graduate degrees in engineering, particularly those from underrepresented groups. This year's conference is scheduled for October 30-November 2, 2013.

The deadline to apply is Friday, September 20, 2013:
https://sd3.engr.wisc.edu/oppsconf/OppsForm.php.

More information on the conference:
http://www.engr.wisc.edu/future/coe-opportunities-in-engineering.html.

If you have questions about the application process or opportunities available in the College of Engineering, please feel free to contact me and I will direct you to the conference coordinator.

"...when style differences are found in encounters between those who hold the keys to societal power -- such as community college counselors, state government representatives, or job interviewers -- and those who wish to benefit from the encounter by getting career advice, governmental services, or a job, it is the person seeking benefits who systematically loses as a result of style differences. In other words, societally determined power differences are an inextricable element of cultural difference theory and research" (Gender and Discourse, Deborah Tannen, 1994, p. 8)

"I’m pretty sure that the best scientists by the above definition are not in the running for most dedicated parent or most supportive spouse, and vice versa. And I’m not interested in either of those one-sided lives. I am obsessively dedicated to being the best whole person I can be. It is possible that my best whole is not good enough for Harvard, or for my marriage; I have to accept that both may choose to find someone else who is a better fit. But even if I don’t rank amongst the best junior faculty list, or the best spouses list, I am sure there is a place in the world where I can bring value."

Learn R programming on GDL

Watch these videos: R 1.1 - Initial Setup and Navigation

Most developers learn the R programming language in bits and pieces, which can leave significant knowledge gaps. To help fill these gaps, we created a series of Introduction to R Programming videos, brought to you by +GDL. These videos provide a solid foundation for programming tools, data manipulation, and functions in the R language and software. 

The series of short videos is organized into four subsections: Intro to R, Loading Data + More Data Formats, Data Processing and Writing Functions. We created a YouTube playlist so you can watch them all: R 1.1 - Initial Setup and Navigation.

"Intelligently placed and intelligently refused trust is the proper aim."

How Trust and trustworthiness are related, and why distrust could be described as a form of Trust rather than being the opposite of trust.

"What is required to effect change is an understanding of the patterns of human behavior as they exist today, an appreciation of the complexity of these patterns, and a humane respect for other human beings -- other researchers as well as the subjects of our research" (Tannen, 1994, p. 13).

"Some kinds of actions become easier with certain technologies. To take an obvious case, cars make it easier to travel longer distances for work or recreation, and cars have changed our behaviour regarding how we design cities, where we live and so on. This is clearly a non-trivial sense in which technologies facilitate certain behaviours. It is in this same non-trivial sense that the Internet can change behaviours by encouraging certain kinds of behaviours and discouraging others. ...The Internet creates opportunities for behaviours that are not conducive to good conduct simply because many activities become so easy, and most of us, whether we want to admit it or not, have a propensity to do the easy rather than the difficult." - Weckert, 2010.
