A filesystem being mounted as either ext4 and ext3?
I came across a very interesting problem on my computer today when moving my Dropbox folder as Dropbox is dropping support for non-ext4 filesystems on Linux now. I wasted a lot of time on this as I always believed that this partition was in ext4. So I could...

ENIAC was considered the first electronic digital computer, until a landmark federal court ruling in 1973. It found that ENIAC was derived from Atanasoff-Berry Computer developed at Iowa State University back in 1939. This history wasn't well known until 1990 National Medal of Technology and an IEEE Milestone in 1990. Iowa State University, the birth place of first electronic digital computer!

Fareed Zakaria on recent admission issues about Harvard and NYC magnet schools. Meritocracy is a pillar of modern society because a poor kid can earn a spot in the upper society through hard work. Hence, NYC gifted schools "have an astonishing track record of moving smart kids out of poverty and into the middle class." To me, Stuyvesant High School is the best high school in America because many students come from families who literally landed on the shore of America with nothing. And, "these schools are incredibly diverse."

Freiheit über alles! 毋忘 #六四 On this day of 1989, Communists sent tanks onto the street of Beijing to crack down a protest demanding freedom and democracy. This topic is still tabooed in China and Commies keep denying that they shot any one on the street. Once again, I salute to those who gave their lives for the universal human rights, including and especially the equal opportunity to pursue happiness through handwork. Because of their sacrifices, I am luckily enough to have the luxury to freely do research and try out startup ideas. Their blood will not fade in vain. #tiananmen

Earlier this month, Science magazine published an article confirming the market rate for an AI professor: $500k-$1M per year, due to the AI fever driven by US and China. Oh, and hence the rate is the same from Silicon Valley to Beijing.

Gandhi said, "the true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members." Communists in Beijing have been long labeling non-office workers as "low-end population", which was wrong at the first place. A little over a week ago, Commies launched a brutal campaign to purge migrant workers out of the city of Beijing, which they helped build and came to to pursue a dream. They were used, exploited, and are now abandoned. Commies cut gas, water, and electricity to anyone who dares to provide a shelter for them. Does it ring a bell? Ah, Nazis did that! They first label some groups as untermenschen (under people, or inferior people) and then treated them like animals.

Robert Wang, once a laid-off dad, but now an entrepreneur whose product has an average 4.5-star rating from 40,000 reviews on Amazon.com. A great man cannot be defeated by any troubles or difficulties. He always gets up again and continues his journey.

My template to reject fundamentally flawed papers
From time to time, I am invited to review papers that are fundamentally flawed. Those papers are written so poorly that I can decide their fates in 1 minute. To save myself from typing again, below is a template. I will just copy and paste. This paper is ve...
