Nobel Laureate says that women are distractions in lab

Tim Hunt, a Nobel laureate and honorary professor, recently stated that female scientists were romantic distractions in labs. He resigned from his professor position afterward. Sure some women might be romantic "distractions" and some might become upset when their work is criticized. But the same can be said of men. Furthermore, it takes two to have a romantic relationship so Hunt is at least partially at fault for not whatever frustration that he felt. Either way, I'm surprised that a renowned scientist would make such an absolutism on solely personal experiences. I suppose we are all only human after, subject to the same impulses and short temper.

Texas A&M Galveston Professor Irwin Horwitz Flunks His Entire Class

While there is certainly not enough information to prove what kind of behavior students exhibited and whether the "injustice" that the Professor felt warranted mass failure, this issue certainly highlights a big problem in higher education. Higher education is meant to enrich our learning; it is a privilege that many have to work for, not a guaranteed experience to help pave the way for employment. Students need to respect that, because if a professor thinks that he needs to fail everyone before the end of the class term, those students have to be doing something wrong.

Studying

When you are not getting anything done, you are just staring at your notebook, not reading, just staring.
