Boys' Interest in STEM Is Decreasing, New Study Says | News | Communications of the ACM
By The Denver Post
June 13, 2018
"The study found the main factors influencing teenagers' top career choices are whether or not they are "good at it," and whether it helps people in some way.

"Teens' decreased interest in STEM may be attributable to a perception that these careers do not have a strong altruistic aspect, says Kim McGrigg, director of communication at Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain."

Your Wi-Fi Security Is Probably Weak. Here’s How to Fix That. - The New York Times
Chances are that when you bought a Wi-Fi router, you probably did not prioritize strong network security. After all, when we think about wireless connectivity in our homes, most of us generally care more about speed of data transmissions and how much range the router can cover.

Germany will miss 2020 climate goals, blames population and economic growth — Quartz
Germany blames a roaring economy and migrants for missing its 2020 climate goals June 13, 2018 at 01:31PM https://ift.tt/2HJcAgR

Germany, often held up as an example of how to go green, has said it’s not going to hit its 2020 emissions-reduction goals. The government is putting the blame on its blistering economic growth and increase in vehicles.

A government report (pdf in German) released today (June 13) says that the country will fail to meet its self-imposed target of a 40% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2020, and will hit only a 32% reduction at best.

As well as “surprisingly strong economic growth,” the report cites “surprisingly strong population growth” for causing an increase in energy consumption. The country has taken in around a million migrants in the last few years.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives and their coalition partners the Social Democrats agreed during the negotiations in spring that the country would not hit the 2020 targets. A September 2017 report (link in German) from the Agora Energiewende also said that Germany had no hope of reducing greenhouse-gas emissions by 40% of its 1990 levels by 2020.

Germany, as part of its ambitious plan for a transition to clean energy (“Energiewende”) has invested heavily in renewables. And it has also been closing nuclear power plants at a clip since 2011, leaving it still pretty reliant on coal and lignite plants. In 2015, more than 40% of Germany’s electricity production came from those sources—making it the biggest greenhouse gas producer in the EU. Last week, Berlin appointed a commission to try and speed up the coal exit.

The WWF Germany environmental group called the new report evidence of the gap between what the government says and what it does on climate goals: “The climate protection report is a 120-decibel alarm signal.”

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) this week prodded Berlin to try harder to meet short-term targets. In its “Economic Survey of Germany,” it criticized the transport sector’s lack of a clear environmental policy and said the government should honor it goal of phasing out coal, which would help it hit 2020 targets.

The Quest of Laurene Powell Jobs
With student loans, multiple jobs, work-study and a small family commitment, she paid for enrollment in the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied economics, political science and French. “I know it in my core that, without that, I never would have had the opportunities that I have in my life,” she says. Education would become Emerson Collective’s seminal issue. “For the students who I work with, I understand that school is their way out,” she says. “It’s really their portal to anything larger than what they see around them. That was true for me.”

How Soccer Technology Has Evolved Since Brazil’s World Cup
The World Cup in Brazil was full of new equipment materials, big data, early iterations of wearable devices, and goal line technology. Fans were posting on social media at unprecedented rates using free WiFi, and Twitter was dabbling in sports broadcasting with nightly analyses and highlights of goals. There was even a brain wave-powered exoskeleton, which debuted during the opening ceremony when a paralyzed teenager kicked a soccer ball. In 2018, we’re living in a much more connected world: people regularly wear devices on their wrists, athletes use real-time data to make informed decisions about their training, and precision technology catches infractions the human eye might miss.

Ross Johnson - Everyone is teaching how to explode your business...
Everyone is teaching how to explode your business and grow so fast your hat will fly off your head...

But people who chase this dream are in for the most challenging road imaginable.

Fast growth is amazing, for sure.

But almost nobody will tell you about the changes you will need to go through, the mindset shifts that are required, and the energy you must put forward.

The thing is... there is nothing wrong with growing at a steady pace. You don't need a million dollar business in less than 3 months - it's okay to not rush through the process.

But if you do go for the route of EXPLOSIVE growth and have the mindset that "I will do anything to get there"....

Be prepared.

It's likely that you will... have mental breakdowns, lose yourself in the process, forget what to do when you do have free time, forget "who you really are", feel guilty about not working 24/7, sacrifice some level of heath for success, become addicted to hustling even when you don't have to, and more.

Just wanted to write you this as a reminder that while it's easy to compare yourself to others and feel behind, it's okay to go at your own pace and enjoy your life in the process.

The people you may look up to who grow super fast have dealt with some very hard things in the process.

Wether you decide to go fast or at your own pace, just remember that it's not a race. Try not to lose yourself in the process
