For girls in particular, additional STEM-career pitfalls occur in middle school, when according to author and educator Rachel Simmons, girls begin to experience a “psychological glass ceiling” that tells them, “Yes, you be smart–but make sure you don’t make anyone uncomfortable with your intelligence.” Simmons goes on to say:

I’m not sure if that seems low or high — surely every family at some time in the last 35 years has picked up something. My guess is that “and plugged into a TV set” is the unspoken condition. Pictured here is 1972’s Magnavox Odyssey, the first multigame, digital home console.
The segment of the fashion population that seems to be getting the most out of these online fashion forecasting websites is the fashion students themselves. Fashionshopper.com and WGSN give fashion design students free access to their websites for learning purposes, and all three websites offer internships for students to learn more about fashion forecasting.
Still, the researchers note that the average American spends more than 90 minutes in a vehicle each day, and exposure to these chemicals can be a major source of indoor air pollution.

You select the different things like scrollbars or menu elements, and apply ActionScript actions to them.

Rowling’s publisher had hoped to maintain a strict embargo until midnight Friday. But by then, hundreds were already reading the book thanks to Potter fans who organized over Internet Relay Chat, or IRC, to scan and distribute the book.
The essence of the claim is that these publishers, in coordination with Apple, conspired to nix the low price e-books that Amazon launched in 2007. Amazon wanted to quickly gain market share with its Kindle, the court filing observes, the first version of which sold out in less than a quarter of a day.

And so since last year, I’ve found myself issuing warnings instead of accolades about the latest trend in the frothy world of cryptocurrencies: ICOs, or initial coin offerings. The initial idea was a pretty good one—blockchain technology could be used to issue new cryptographically secure “tokens” or “coins” that are easy to transmit peer-to-peer.

They could even function as shares and thus allow startups to finance themselves far more efficiently, from a broader range of people, and without the intermediaries that take fees and require a drawn-out process. Or the “coins” could represent some unit of utility, such as a gigabyte of storage or access to a network.
CPU Wars plays right to that nostalgia weakness. Built as a card game similar to the classic game of War or other ‘trump’ card games, and funded through Kickstarter, CPU Wars has you pitting the specs of various processors against each other to beat your opponent. Each card is broken into sections, beginning with the processor’s name, a photograph, a factoid and eight different statistics about the proc.
