3 Biases That Hijack Performance Reviews, and How to Address Them

https://hbr.org/2018/06/3-biases-that-hijack-performance-reviews-and-how-to-address-them

Saved by uncleflo on June 22nd, 2018.

When we talk about bias, we often tie it to acts of discrimination or prejudice. But according to cognitive science, everybody, by virtue of having a brain that’s constantly seeking efficiency, is biased in some way — and not all biases make us actively malicious. The key is how we manage our biases. While biases can affect any of an organization’s talent decisions, they can be especially harmful when it comes to diversity and inclusion efforts. And there is perhaps no setting that shapes careers, salaries, and lives like annual performance evaluations. In a recent performance management summit we ran with over 100 large organizations, 57% of them said they weren’t taking any actions to address bias in performance reviews. One reason why may be a lack of shared language: In order to address biases, you first have to be able to label them. Research has found that several biases come up again and again when managers are evaluating a team member.

Human Body Heat as a Source for Thermoelectric Energy Generation

http://large.stanford.edu/courses/2016/ph240/stevens1/

Saved by uncleflo on May 31st, 2018.

The idea of converting human body heat into a form of usable energy has been targeted by scientists for years. A resting human male gives off roughly 100-120 Watts of energy. A very small fraction of this can be utilized by a thermoelectric device to power wearable devices. As an example, Seiko's Thermic Watch managed to capture continuous a charge at only one microwatt, so there is certainly a viable market that has not yet blossomed. It being known that 80% of a typical human's body power is given off as heat, current technologies can only produce a few milliwatts of energy. This is not nearly enough to charge your iPhone at a power input of roughly 5 watts, and unfortunately this sort of efficiency may never be possible.

Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/explore/is-a-tomato-a-fruit-or-a-vegetable/

Saved by uncleflo on May 6th, 2018.

The confusion about 'fruit' and 'vegetable' arises because of the differences in usage between scientists and cooks. Scientifically speaking, a tomato is definitely a fruit. True fruits are developed from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant (though cultivated forms may be seedless). Blueberries, raspberries, and oranges are true fruits, and so are many kinds of nut. Some plants have a soft part which supports the seeds and is also called a 'fruit', though it is not developed from the ovary: the strawberry is an example. As far as cooking is concerned, some things which are strictly fruits, such as tomatoes or bean pods, may be called 'vegetables' because they are used in savoury rather than sweet cooking. The term 'vegetable' is more generally used of other edible parts of plants, such as cabbage leaves, celery stalks, and potato tubers, which are not strictly the fruit of the plant from which they come. Occasionally the term 'fruit' may be used to refer to a part of a plant which is not a fruit, but which is used in sweet cooking: rhubarb, for example. So, the answer to the question is that a tomato is technically the fruit of the tomato plant, but it's used as a vegetable in cooking.

Transatomic - Let’s create abundant energy and a healthy world

http://www.transatomicpower.com/

Saved by uncleflo on July 14th, 2016.

The nuclear industry of the 1950s was defined by an inexhaustible optimism and rigorous scientific thinking. Anything was possible, and nuclear energy promised to power the world. Revolutionary designs were prolific. Today, however, this technological diversity has been narrowed, and the industry has become locked into one design: the light water reactor. We’re challenging this strategy and have returned to the beginning to explore another path, and another design – the molten salt reactor. This simple reactor design, updated with modern technology and materials, has the potential to revolutionize the nuclear industry.

Ocean Classrooms (OC) believes strongly that the health of our ocean relies on the young, motivated ocean scientists of our future. These scientists not only thirst to learn more about the ocean through research, but also they need to engage the public in their research and its outcomes. In today’s world, the ability to deliver your message has never been easier, but it is also a crowded market that competes for public attention. Social media has narrowed the scientist-to-public divide. The savvy use of social media can help disseminate a science and conservation message efficiently and bring about effective change that protects and improves the health of our ocean. Moreover, young scientists have more challenges competing for limited research funding because of less experience. Consequently, OC is investing in a grant opportunity for early career marine science researchers to help fund their work and to help disseminate their research through social media, as well as through tradition

Nozzle Design

Saved by uncleflo on September 2nd, 2014.

A rocket engine uses a nozzle to accelerate hot exhaust to produce thrust as described by Newton's third law of motion. The amount of thrust produced by the engine depends on the mass flow rate through the engine, the exit velocity of the flow, and the pressure at the exit of the engine. The value of these three flow variables are all determined by the rocket nozzle design.

Saved by uncleflo on September 2nd, 2014.

Selected by NASA in 1963 into the third group of astronauts, Aldrin was the first with a doctorate and became known as “Dr. Rendezvous.” The docking and rendezvous techniques he devised for spacecraft in Earth and lunar orbit became critical to the success of the Gemini and Apollo programs, and are still used today. He also pioneered underwater training techniques, as a substitute for zero gravity flights, to simulate spacewalking. In 1966 on the Gemini 12 orbital mission, Buzz performed the world’s first successful spacewalk, overcoming prior difficulties experienced by Americans and Russians during extra-vehicular activity (EVA), and setting a new EVA record of 5 ½ hours. On July 20, 1969, Buzz and Neil Armstrong made their historic Apollo 11 moonwalk, becoming the first two humans to set foot on another world. They spent 21 hours on the lunar surface and returned with 46 pounds of moon rocks.

On this course, you will be using a lot of maths. Sometimes, you may need clarification on how to use maths for a particular problem. Luckily, you can use LaTeX on the forums to display maths in a readable format (as opposed to unwieldy formats like 4*10^6 which can be difficult to parse). There are a lot of different commands for LaTeX, but you will only need a few in this course. To start using LaTeX, you first need to type $$ - this is telling the forums software that whatever you type in between the dollar signs is LaTeX and should be displayed as LaTeX

Stresses in Beams, David Roylance, MIT

Saved by uncleflo on September 2nd, 2014.

Understanding of the stresses induced in beams by bending loads took many years to develop. Galileo worked on this problem,but the theory as we use it today is usually credited principally to the great mathematician Leonard Euler (1707{1783). As will be developed below, beams develop normal stresses in the lengthwise direction that vary from a maximum in tension at one surface, to zero at the beam's midplane, to a maximum in compression at the opposite surface. Shear stresses are also induced, although these are often negligible in comparision with the normal stresses when the length-to-height ratio of the beam is large.

Saved by uncleflo on July 17th, 2014.

I am referring in the following to the model with the 50-cm diameter disks. This machine was already running when the visitors stepped into the room, and was not halted during the whole time --- we were there for about 1.5 hrs. As a first load a 1000-Watt lamp was connected for approximately 10 seconds whose brightness did NOT diminish --- the corresponding sequence on the Testatika film is just an effect of the camera aperture's automatic adjusting to the sudden brightness! The second load was a U-shaped heating element, that Mr.Baumann handed to me. It became so hot within one second that I had to put it down immediately! What was particularly impressive was that while he pulled back one of the contact wires (that was with the lamp, I believe), a 1-cm long arc appeared between the output electrode and the connecting wire for approximately one second. The apparatus was under a plexiglass hood.
