    1. Of course men haven't been discriminated against as much a women in the work place. Men are "meant" to do jobs in STEM, while women aren't really seen in the STEM program as much. Women deserve to be recognized in anything as much as men are they're just as good.

    1. For clearly it applies not only to rhetoric, but to all teachmgof tne arts and letters, to everything we call the humanities.

      Why don't we ask this question in STEM? If rhetoric is applicable in every sphere, then surely there must be something worth examining on that level. Could this have to do with the different ways in which we approach epistemology in STEM versus the humanities, or is there something more to this lack of discourse?

    1. Golden Seeds, an investment firm that provides capital to women-led businesses.

      These businesses are wonderful and the philanthropic spirit helps a lot. However, it's sadly a small portion of women who actually receive not just the grant but also the opportunity itself. Grants from businesses like this requires strenuous writing(especially when small business are writing multiple grants at a time) and a lot of valuable time to be written and then have a slim chance of being picked. Of course Golden Seeds is a good thing but it is ineffective of a larger scale.

      The patriarchy is so deeply intertwined and reaches globally. The oligarchies of this world dominate all forms economic growth for the proletariat.

    4. "What the study does is take a broad-based look at the issues facing the STEM workforce. I think they really speak to the complex issues surrounding diversity in the workplace."

      How can we build these ideas into a drive to better not just the condition of the women of STEM but also that of women in general?

    5. The lawsuit he filed Monday argues that Google was so overly concerned with filling gender and racial quotas that it was hurting male employees as well as potential male employees.

      White dudes always come up with the most farfetched reasoning to support their blatant power grabs.

    6. James Damore was fired from Google

      How will bigger STEM industries be affected in comparison to smaller industries. The article uses a lot of from big business like Google so how do these assessments of big business work within school environments. Sexism and abuse towards women exist outside of bug business.

    7. only 19 percent of men said they had experienced gender discrimination at work, versus 50 percent of women.

    1. Passaged rBMSCs exhibited significantly greater proliferation rates at 1% O2 and 5% O2 than those at 18% O2 and the cells exposed to 1% O2 showed the highest proliferative potential, which was evidenced by the growth curves, colony-forming efficiencies, and CCK-8 absorbance values.

    1. However, most historians agree that this apparently auspicious achievement must be taken with a grain of salt: these women scientists were mostly hired in positions “according to their femininity”, often in lower level jobs and always as subordinates in the research teams performing research projects during the War.

    1. from ordinary presence to the lan-guage of the most formal calculus

      Another interesting option for people with more of a STEM background, but this notion of deriving as it applies to language and literature is interesting. Derrida calls it "decomposition," and I get the resonance in that word choice, but I think the mathematical metaphor of finding f'(x) of a language function is an interesting crossover.

    2. s there a rigorous and sci-entific concept of context?

      My STEM background pretty much ended with AP Bio, but I don't think scientists would even attempt a strict definition of context--ceteris paribus is only for modeling purposes, and independent variables can be accounted for, but never universally. Georges Canguilhem, who we encountered in the Lemos reading, has a bit in Knowledge of Life that goes through all the ways what applies to one organism doesn't necessarily apply to another organism.

      "The chances of a new sensory input getting into long-term memory vary dramatically from one input to another. The inputs most likely to make it relate to (1) threats to the learner's survival or well-being. In descending order, the next most likely inputs to be stored are those with (2) strong emotional associations for the learner; (3) meaning (relationships to the learner's interests, goals, prior knowledge, and past experiences); and (4) sense (comprehensibility)," (Felder & Brent, 2016, p 3).

    1. A firm believer that arts and science teaching should cross over, Drury saw Sonic Pi as a great example of how that could work in the classroom. 

      STEM+Arts=STEAM

    1. reconciling STEM and Arts: a laptop orchestra seamlessly encompasses Arts and Sciences. This allows us to utilize such an ensemble in a number of educational scenarios.

      Much discussion of interdisciplinarity in Higher Ed. comes from a notion that “real work” is found through some of these disciplines (typically STEM). Now we’re gaining STEAM.
