To responders commenting about 578: The problem is some people try to boost their egos making nonsense, cranky statements degrading one thing or another. We need to pity them for their anger about having low self esteem and likely, a lack of education. 584 and others are correct in their evaluation of the study. 594 brought up a good point for the whiner to consider. Even if the study actually cost "hundreds of thousands of dollars", it's money well spent and better than throwing dollars at our over bloated military. Now there is something to whine about!

Is This A Compass?

2016-02-13 05:15 PM

As others have said this is a proportional divider. Depending on where the center adjustment is set the distance between the points on either end are in fixed proportion to each other.
In the picture shown it appears that it is set to a proportion of about 2, so if the distance between the points at one end is 1 1/2 inches then the distance between the points at the other end is 3.

Awesome research! If I wasn't an engineer, I'd seriously consider demographics. Really find the fusion of numbers, statistics, and social science interesting. What makes us tick.

Possibly in poorer countries, kids dream big because they want to get out of the poverty cycle. In affluent countries, as in ours, there is an excessive emphasis on "things" and clothes and appearance, where often more money is made. Just look at that (in)famous family - loads of easy money made on the superficial in life, and nothing of substance. They probably have more money than those who are teachers, biologists or scientists.

If so, it is a reflection on our society.

Btw, studies about the social dynamics in any society is not a waste of time. Understanding and knowledge is far more important than closing one's eyes and ears.

"This woman's "research" cost the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars and resulted in a "study" which helps no one."

And that, folks, is one of the reasons why women in affluent countries don't go into STEM. Outmoded, bigoted statements and dismissal of their value as scientists and as people in general.

Fascinating read. As the mother of a young daughter, I absolutely appreciate social research and the implications of its findings.

Don't mind the soggy bottoms already chiming in. They have no interest in their environment or its peoples.

@578, did this say this was tax-funded research, or did you simply run out of things to complain about?

Why buy "Mediterranean" sea bass when we have SOOOO many varieties of local fish that are both fresher and taste much better. Support local fisherman.

Bravo for eating with your hands! Wonderful post. Funny you mention cous cous and rice, which in other cultures are eaten by hand. Hands are also the best kitchen tool.

I think it is a terrific idea to get rid of a guy who allowed his staff to drag their feet on permits. What ever happened to the rights of land owners to get a permit in a timely fashion?

They must have had a good reason to fire the guy. Think about it for a moment, and know that sometimes it just none of your business. Deal with it, and hopefully he will be replaced with someone who is not "in bed" with big oil, big pharma, big business, and so on.

Minor detail: 1000 in attendance is an extreme exaggeration. 300 probably but still a good turnout in that many were from distant parts of California. Also to note, board legal council stated that it was not mandatory for Board discussion and decision to be closed doored. Resent LA Times article provides more detail on this subject and I hope they will follow up with info in the future.

Anyone interested should just google this in the news. It's been reported for the past month in the LA times. Lester opted for a public hearing which was held this past week in Morrow Bay. Hundreds showed up in support. Directly after the hearing, and behind closed doors they voted 7-5 to fire him. The lawyers on both sides said that he had waived his privacy when he opted for this hearing. No one can figure out why they aren't being more transparent. The general reasons they gave for firing Lester were management style, being non-responsive to the commission, holding up the process of reviews etc. One hint is the many dozens of hours they've spent with him in performance reviews over the past few years which seems excessive. Environmentalists are fearing it has to do with pressure from pro-development. The board strongly denies this. You can bet there is more to the story on both sides.

Where does it say the commissioners are pro-developement?

What I'm worried about is the Supreme Court making anti environment, pro business decisions. Like their recent decision on the coal production ban. Who put these guys on the court?

BTW, all personnel decisions must be made in a closed meeting if you are a publicly funded group.
