As we all know, the United States is No1 leading country in the science and technology in the world. Is this because of its quality of education system? What do you think ?
He is right. The U.S. and other countries has witnessed South Korea taking the lead in Stem Cell research. This is only because of right-wing governments that are afraid of change. There are some Republicans that endorse it because it can save lives but such a bill cannot be passed unless they shed their conservative/religious values.zeronem said:I think you should check your facts before stating something like that.
If I am not mistaken, then the world of science depends on our survival and our survival depends on all of science. All it would take is a few nukes to deduce us to nothing, then Einstein would stand corrected.Pengwuino said:Whoever made the comment about stem cell research needs to take a reality check and realize the world of science does not revolve around stem cells and your political ideology.
In the old days people used to say this :redgoat said:As we all know, the United States is No1 leading country in the science and technology in the world. Is this because of its quality of education system? What do you think ?
Why is stem cell research always equated to embryonic stem cell research?Nusc said:We humans tend to think highly of ourselves. We are nothing. "Life" does not start until the brain has been developed. So if an embryo is killed, how would that be different from killing insects or other species for that matter.
There is also speculation that if such a bill was passed that it would exploit woman. But my point is that we can only get so far in such a diverse world. The only way we can truly progress in science is if humanity is united but that can only happen if wisdom rules humanity, not politicians.
Your statements are a little outdated, but were once true. Especially during the 50's and the early days of the cold war, the US invested a lot in its education system - especially in math and sciences. The US still might be at the top at the college level because of money (I wouldn't say that's certain, anymore), but the quality of public education at the elementary and secondary level has definitely declined.redgoat said:As we all know, the United States is No1 leading country in the science and technology in the world.

So's Sweden and Finland, but does that mean these two are on their way to growth leadership in new technologies? :rofl:exequor said:I don't know about science but in terms of technology I think that Japan is always a year or two ahead. A good example of this is wireless communications.
What follows are vast generalizations and do not apply to individual cases.After comparing the electrical and computer engineering syallabus of a university and one in the US, I clearly saw that a bachelors degree in hong kong is almost equal to a masters degree in the US.
I disagree with that. Furthermore, what you linked to is an opinion, not any specific "proof". Besides, how does one "do more dissertations"? Your advisor is not going to have you stick around longer than necessary because he/she has more incoming students to support if they are all on some kind of assistantship.Rayne said:article is a little old, but if you browse sciences career forums the general feeling still seems to be alot of PhDs are not finding work and so instead just do more dissertations. Alot of politicians talk about a "shortage of scientists" but it seems the market isnt even utilizing alot of the ones we have already.
Don't be offended by this, but I would ask you for a proof of that beyond just anecdotal hearsay.Rayne said:Well for Physics that may not be that case, if so, then thats great.
For people trying to enter Biotech without prior experience it seems like getting hired is a long shot.

Depends where you live. Cost of living varies greatly. Nationwide, average houselhold income is a little below 50,000 (low 40's?), but that includes families with two incomes. Average salary is in the 30's.Rayne said:Im pretty sure average household income is in the 50,000 range so 100,000 is good
