#Impostor #syndrome can be defined as a collection of #feelings of #inadequacy that persist even in face of information that indicates that the opposite is true. It is experienced internally as chronic self-doubt, and feelings of intellectual #fraudulence

It is basically feeling that you are not really a #successful , competent, and smart student, that you are only imposing as such. 

Some common feelings and thoughts that might characterize the impostor syndrome are: "I feel like a fake" "My classmates/professors etc. are going to find out I don't really belong here," "Admissions made a mistake," etc.

The impostor syndrome is associated with highly achieving, highly successful people.   This makes impostor feelings somewhat different from the concept of "low self-esteem" because there is a discrepancy between the actual #achievement and the person's feelings about the achievement that may not be present in low self-esteem. People in different professions such as teachers, people in the social sciences, people in academia, actresses and actors, may all have impostor feelings. 
When Clance and Imes first described the impostor syndrome, they thought it was unique to #women . Since then, a variety of research on the topic has revealed that men, too, can have the unenviable experience of feeling like frauds, according to a recent research review (International Journal of Behavioral Sciences, 2011http://bsris.swu.ac.th/journal/i6/6-6_Jaruwan_73-92.pdf).

Clay is moulded to make a vessel, but the utility of the vessel lies in the space where there is #nothing . Thus, taking advantage of what is, we recognize the utility of what is not.

This idea is really fascinating that the presence of something can reveal the advantage of something absent.

“Humans may resemble many other creatures in their striving for #happiness , but the quest for #meaning is a key part of what makes us human, and uniquely so.”
— Roy Baumeister et al. (2013)
There can be substantial trade-offs between seeking happiness and seeking meaning in life

The #hedonic treadmill, also known as hedonic adaptation, is the observed tendency of humans to quickly return to a relatively stable level of #happiness despite major positive or negative events or life changes.
During the late 1990s, the concept was modified by Michael Eysenck, a British psychologist, to become the current "hedonic treadmill theory" which compares the pursuit of happiness to a person on a treadmill, who has to keep walking just to stay in the same place.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedonic_treadmill
 
In psychology, the theory of Hedonic Adaptation explains why some relationships die a natural death: Couples get too comfortable and used to each other. Familiarity breeds contempt and a sense of boredom. The Hedonic Adaptation model provides a workaround: Couples should work hard to create newer positive experiences.
The Hedonic Adaptation Prevention model explains why people fall out of love and provides the secret to lasting relationship.

I am more than ever now the bride of science. #Religion to me is #science , and science is religion. In that deeply-felt truth lies the secret of my intense devotion to the reading of God’s natural works… And when I behold the scientific and so-called philosophers full of selfish feelings, and of a tendency to war against circumstances and Providence, I say to myself: They are not true priests, they are but half prophets — if not absolutely false ones. They have read the great page simply with the physical eye, and with none of the spirit within. The intellectual, the moral, the religious seem to me all naturally bound up and interlinked together in one great and harmonious whole. There is too much tendency to making separate and independent bundles of both the physical and the moral facts of the universe. Whereas, all and everything is naturally related and interconnected. A volume could I write on this subject…

--Ada Lovelace

"We're talking about anything from a simple sensor that can measure the amount of glucose in your blood through to actually creating electronic #displays so rather than having something like a pair of glasses that's acting like a #computer , you can actually generate images directly on your contact #lens ," Assoc Prof Evans said.
 "We have always known that our film coating technologies had potential for many applications and now we have taken that a step further by proving that we can make biocompatible, conducting polymers at the nanoscale and grow them directly on a contact lens."

This mathematical monster was discovered by Curtis Cooper at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg as part of the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS), a collaborative effort to find new #primes by pooling computing power online. It has 22,338,618 digits in total.
Cooper also discovered the previous record holder in February 2013, which was 257,885,161 – 1, a number with more than 17 million digits, along with two other older records. He has received a $3000 prize from GIMPS for each discovery.
The Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search has turned up another largest known prime, beating the previous record holder by nearly 5 million digits

Finding #parking spots can be exasperating for big city drivers. Siemens AG has nonetheless come up with a solution using a radar system to tell drivers via their smartphones where to look for a free parking spot.
Readings from the sensors are sent over a mobile network to the control centre for data analysis. The prepared information from the data analysis include size of parking spaces relevant to the size of a particular vehicle, statistical and real-time information on parking vacancies, and parking rates among others.
What makes the Smart Parking Solution special is that the software learns as it operates. It recognises when a parking situation is repeated at certain times, combines statistical and real-time data, and makes forecasts. The system also assists users in selecting a suitable mode of transport. Using the provided traffic information, drivers may opt in advance to use a park-and-ride system on the edge of the city or even leave the car at home and take public transport.
Siemens AG has developed a smart parking solution for telling drivers via their smartphones where to look for parking spots.

 $9 CHIP #Computer  

It is very basic. It has 4 gigabytes of storage. It fits in the palm of my hand and has various electronic components soldered on. Frankly, it looks like something I'd find in a repair shop. But it's actually easy to set up. It can connect to Wi-Fi. It has Bluetooth.

Dave Rauchwerk, the CEO of Next Thing Co., which makes the CHIP, showed me his Kickstarter-backed computer. "When you take it out of the box you can connect a keyboard, Bluetooth and mouse really easily," he says. "It also has a USB port so if you wanted to, you could plug into any old keyboard you can find."

The keyboard, mouse and screen are not included, so that would add to the price. But getting those on the cheap is pretty easy these days.

In two years of research, the team found that by introducing a water-soluble polymer called PEDOT-S into a #rose , it formed a hydrogel in a thin film along the channel that allows the rose to absorb water and nutrients. They were also able to induce the plant to produce polymer membranes with an electrode at each end and a gate in the middle – in other words, a functioning organic #transistor .

The team says that the process is inexpensive and holds the promise of combining the functions of electronics with the resistance to cold and wet of plants. By using the polymers, it may be possible to read and regulate the plant's growth and other functions by controlling the concentrations of various substances. In addition, it could have more exotic applications, such as transferring energy collected by photosynthesis into a fuel cell or converting plants into living antennae.

Led by Professor Magnus Berggren, scientists at Linköping University have used semiconductive polymers to create the key components of analog and digital electronic circuits inside a rose plant.
