I'm in third year uni. I understand all of basic high school level math, and almost all of advanced high school level math immediately, and with solutions, I can understand all of it. I understand most of up to second year pure math, but very little of applied math except for the more basic parts. Third year pure math I'm mostly just shooting in the dark, but I'm getting the hang of the concepts. Third year applied math, I don't think I could ever hope to understand.

>> No.11135998

For me it's very important to feel I understand what I am working on. Solving problems feeling like you just memorized everything sucks.

I just spend 3 hours trying to understand what a fucking differential is, Going through the original notion by Leibniz that involved infinitesimals to the modern one given by Cauchy where the derivative is the fundamental and the differential is defined in terms of it. Also apparently the modern definition says that the differential is a function of two variables x and dx.

I still have no fucking clue what a differential is. But some guy on mathstackexchange said that the difference between differentials and derivatives is more clearer once you go to higher dimensions. I will give up and just start doing my absolute/relative error homework. I feel that I made some progress though.

>> No.11136537

Nope. In fact I would argue that extraordinary brains are really a myth. But let's look at these 2 cases more deeply: These men were famous for creating structures which would provide a rigorous explanation to phenomena or at least an interesting perspective. Also, they did these things 100 years ago, so by nature, the gravity of their accomplishments should be taken with a grain of salt. This is very different from the process of taking a question that somebody else asked and answering it. Physics, even at the highest levels, is still running experiments and mere interpolation of datasets. The study of Von Neumann's contribution to set theory is today considered to be undergraduate level, and he is just as prestigious for his contributions to game thoery.
nice drunkpost. FTC is actually very intuitive. If you write out the limit definition of a derivative and compare it side by side to the limit definition of an integral, you will notice two very similar forms that can cancel. It only seems remarkable because it is difficult to get FTC from geometric intuition. And that's what I mean by getting lucky. It is very lucky that such a useful math theorem is so easy to discover. However, as we keep looking for proofs at the same level, our returns are diminishing. Who knows the value of a proof of the same level that we will never see?

Laplace transforms are actually pretty useful in engineering systems applications to see the behavior and stability of a system in response to an input. Also, Fourier transforms are kinda just special cases of Laplace transforms, and those are used for looking at stuff in terms of frequency. All super useful stuff

>Rosenhan's study was done in two parts. The first part involved the use of healthy associates or "pseudopatients" (three women and five men, including Rosenhan himself) who briefly feigned auditory hallucinations in an attempt to gain admission to 12 psychiatric hospitals in five states in the United States. All were admitted and diagnosed with psychiatric disorders. After admission, the pseudopatients acted normally and told staff that they felt fine and had no longer experienced any additional hallucinations. All were forced to admit to having a mental illness and had to agree to take antipsychotic drugs as a condition of their release. The average time that the patients spent in the hospital was 19 days. All but one were diagnosed with schizophrenia "in remission" before their release.

>The second part of his study involved an offended hospital administration challenging Rosenhan to send pseudopatients to its facility, whom its staff would then detect. Rosenhan agreed and in the following weeks out of 250 new patients the staff identified 41 as potential pseudopatients, with 2 of these receiving suspicion from at least one psychiatrist and one other staff member. In fact, Rosenhan had sent no pseudopatients to the hospital.

Programming is one of the most in-demand occupations there is.

It's a well paid occupation with little responsibility. Senior programmers make as much as doctors. With not even one hundredth of the responsibility and red tape associated with being a doctor.

It's laughably easy to get an entry level programming job. To a point where following a coding course online, and writing a basic public portfolio on GitHub will get you an audience. So if you're smart about it, you can somewhat skip college and associated 100k debt hole.

Not everywhere. As you said, big corporations do have an overzealous HR that could prove problematic.

Smaller companies don't. If you're applying to a web dev studio with under 50 people, they won't have any hilarious HR.

Plus, an actual body of work you can show to your employer will make you stand out head and shoulders above your run-of-the-mill bachelor's degree coder.

What plays in your cards is that there is a serious shortage of qualified labor in the western societies. My <300 people company alone would hire 30 more devs right now, if we could find them. But we're scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

Corporations are so desperate they ship in foreign immigrants of qualified visa, just to fill the roles.

That being said, I don't want to make this sound too easy. You coming "off the street" will raise a few red flags. But it's not something you won't overcome with a bit of persistence. We're talking 6 months to an entry level job at company you haven't heard of as of today. Not 6 months to senior dev 400k position at Google.

I'd also recommend not overlooking the social aspect of your new career. Going to public events and meeting people will go a long way for you. Once you've put up your repo on GitHub, so you have something to link to, you should see if there is any kind of event open to public in the sector you've decided to pursue. I.e. coding dojos. Industry meetups, etc. It's different sector to sector.

Make sure you've put up enough code to justify you going to those events, so people don't think you're just showing up for the free beer. Some sectors are better for this than others. So do your research.

Once you've been showing around your face long enough, you will innevitably talk to people looking for help. Did I mention the job marked is fucking starved for programmers?

The best way into any job is through personal connection, not submitting a CV to HR email address.

>> No.11136254

The prohibition was the banning of alcohol in the US during the 1920s, however, backfired and the consumption of alcohol wasn't impacted.

How do we control and regulate telomerase on telomeres? Is it possible to just inject it on us to make our cells immortals?

How is it cancer if they don't have a mutation?

I don't think so.

>> No.11133959
Quoted By: >>11134734

other than heart cells and germinal cells and a few other exceptions all body cells will die at one point or another and get replaced by other cells. I should not have said cancer, but generally cells that refuse to die will become huge in numbers and become a tumour that tends to have malignant behaviour
A mutation that leads to cancer will also give the cancer cells the ability to be very hard to kill otherwise an oncologist's job would be quite easy

Strangely enough, an immortalized human would evolve over his lifetime to have more rapidly replicating cell lines in his body, which of course would probably get lethal quickly and sink the entire little ecosystem. But it's funny to think of the body as a collection of organisms.

Nope, if you eventually did do that, you wouldn't be even asking this question on this board.

be patient cause the tech to do that is 50 to 100 years off. Building the stereotype sci fi regular time machine will be done in 20 to 30 years. But some kind of consciousness teleportation will be a lot harder. Although could use A. to get to B.

>> No.11135613

You are touching on what he really accomplished. Invention on an industrial scale. An army of inventors working out the bugs and marketing. He bought tones of patents that were not his and he owned the ideas of his employees. I'm glad he exists, but also glad he wasn't existing around me. We benefit from him but, not the way it is commonly believed.

also because DC was safe and edison was right in pointing out his household AC can hurt or kill people. westinghouse basically created the need for those “babyproofing” electrical connector protectors.
