In 2009 the U.S. graduated 89,140 students in the visual and performing arts, more than in computer science, math and chemical engineering combined and more than double the number of visual and performing arts graduates in 1985. ... There is nothing wrong with the arts, psychology and journalism, but graduates in these fields have lower wages and are less likely to find work in their fields than graduates in science and math. Moreover, more than half of all humanities graduates end up in jobs that don’t require college degrees and these graduates don’t get a big college bonus.The best thing about this article is this graph, which exactly shows what the problem is:
If you want to see how they're built take a look at Currency.io. It's open source and very very slick.
"It’s just an iron rule of nerd-dom, if you put an interesting looking wall in front of us, we’ll try to get around it.”If your business model can be broken by a programmer with 30 minutes to spend then you didn't really have a business model to start with.

Readers who come to Times articles through links from search, blogs and social media like Facebook and Twitter will be able to read those articles, even if they have reached their monthly reading limit. For some search engines, users will have a daily limit of free links to Times articles.I understand how tough the newspaper business has become, but making content hard to read and access on the Internet has not been a successful business model for anyone yet. I'm sure NYTimes.com knows what they're doing, but these changes raise an awful lot of questions about what content is going to be available from which sources. If a friend emails me a link to a NYTimes.com story will I be able to read it? Will services such as Twitter have to be whitelisted to enable access to content via links? By biggest question, though, is "how will this affect Instapaper?" If I can't Instapaper content then I'm going to find similar content elsewhere. Prices and details are here.
In 1981, Eli Hazum and his colleagues at Wellcome Research Laboratories reported traces of the chemical morphine, a highly addictive opiate. It turns out that morphine is found in cow milk and human, purportedly to ensure offspring will bond very strongly with their mothers and get all the nutrients they need to grow.The article goes on to try and draw a link between morphine and morphine precursors in cheese and the rates of obesity. If there were any actual numbers in the article describing how much morphine is in cheese, or why the rates of cheese consumption don't seem to correlate at all with obesity rates then it would be much more interesting. I'm going to stop complaining now.
The film is a metaphor for the way that Nolan as a director works, and what he's ultimately saying is that the catharsis found in a dream is as real as the catharsis found in a movie is as real as the catharsis found in life.
