Question by Blissme: Where can i read interesting stuff about science and consciousness?
I would love a site(/s) where I could visit a hour a day and just feel enriched for my whole week!
Stuff about Human consciousness, science of all sorts;
Some of my favorite research was Message from Water

or narrative version

David Willcock’s research field

And I was very amazed by researches about the pineal gland
-one of my favorite topics
David Wilcock cover that area as well.

-You can also just pop in an interesting researches that you loved!
Thanks, much love and a brilliant day to you!

P.S (I was tempted to post this on philosophy because Ive seen so many intelligent posts over there, but It fits here better)
Waiting for more suggestions fellas
-Ill check out TED btw! :0

Answer by Cynthia S
TED’s mission statement begins:
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.

If you watch some of the people who gave talks, it will give you ideas on what people think.
Then you can go on and read more.
If you want shorter articles,

has lots of articles.

Question by sam: In university requirements, is geography considered a ‘science’, or is it only physics, biology, chemistry?
I know that biology, chemistry and physics are typical sciences, but i was wondering if geography was considered as a science?
In terms of university requirements/applications..? (in the UK)

For example some courses i am looking at, state the requirements of English and a science..and physics was the only science i took at GCSE level, and i dropped it after that.

Thanks.
oh yeah..social studies. i don’t know why i didn’t think of that..cos i actually know it aha :| there was just something in the back of my mind thinking that geography might be classed as a science..like an earth science.

oh well..thanks anyway. [:

Answer by ☮Androgynous☮
Geography is considered as a social study, I believe.
Also, chemistry, biology, and physics are lab sciences, unlike psychology, sociology, and physical science.

Question by compscience01: I am very interested in physics and i am interested in computer science.. cont?
Do physics and computer science have similar qualities?

Best answer:

Answer by Mister Nice Guy
No.
In Computer Science you will learn to write code that will efficiently encapsulate an algorithm.
In Physics you will learn how the real world works in terms of mass, energy, force, . . . etc.
These are only tangentially related.

Question by stonesfan_17: What could you do with a double major in computer science and physics/aerospace engineering?
Right now I’m in my second semester of my computer science degree. During these 2 semesters I’ve had to do research for my english comp class. From this research I have noticed I am greatly interested in AI programming and space type topics.

So just out of curiosity I’m trying to find out some information on how a double major in either physics or aerospace engineering would bring me closer to this field of work. Mainly the goal would be NASA, which seems obvious for this type of work.

At this time physics seems to be the most practical considering I already have to take around 15 credit hours of science classes (physics can be used for this) for my computer science degree so that would be easy to turn into a BS physics degree. On the other hand aerospace engineering seems like it would be more of an eye catcher on a resume. The only down side to this would be having to transferring schools since my current one does not offer a degree in it.

So is this career path worthwhile? Will a double major help in securing a job or is it just a time/money sink? And will the degrees even work together?(I know designing software for an aerospace system would benefit from that degree…but would you actually put the knowledge to good use instead of just using it as background knowledge for understanding the requirements for the software)

Basically my education path can take 3 routes by this:

A: Complete computer science degree and be done with it. Most likely with a mathematics or physics minor.

B: Computer science degree + physics degree.

C: Computer science degree + physics minor, then transfer schools for an aerospace degree(assuming enough credits transfer and the degree can be gotta in an additional 1-2 years).

Answer by Andy
I would keep on the Computer Science / Engineering route and you’ll do very well!

With that background you could work with me…
I work on GPS space systems for a large defense contractor. All our electronic systems are software driven. To do this job you must know both fields to excel. The age where you could specialize in hardware or software are over, to make it today you have to be a jack of all things geeky.

While you are at it get a Management Graduate degree and you’ll be very successful if you have ambition!

Question by Brenda: HELP ME PICK MY SCIENCE CAREER PATH?
Basically, here are the options:

-Honours life science (more general)
-Biochemical science/biomedical
-Medical physics

I absolutely love science, but most of all I love chemistry, physics and math. I do like biology, but only in terms of diseases, etc.

I love physics but I’m not good with technology, and I don’t have all the prerequisites for going into that program, although I could always obtain the credits. On the midterms for physics, I only ended up getting a 67% average (this was 10% above average though).. so I don’t even know if I can handle more physics.

I wish I could go on taking all of the science courses, I don’t know what to do.

I also have to consider what will get me in a better position for graduate school. I plan on going into research most likely.

Can anyone please offer some suggestions?!

Answer by C_Rock136
Since you seem to like diseases in biology you could become a medical microbiologist which deals with microorganisms and disease. In terms of chemistry, physics, and math — you could become a chemical engineer which only requires 4 years of school and involves all 3. If you like life science in general, maybe something related to animals interests you such as wildlife biology, zoology, or marine life biology. Whatever path you choose, your heading down the right road, you will graduate with a better starting pay and better options in science and math then someone who choose the liberal arts road. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Question by Vitaly: I am terrible at Physics, but I would love to major in Computer Science.?
I love computers and programming and all. The technology and the way things work with a computer language is just amazing. I am an incoming freshman this fall and wondering, physics…My worst subject in my whole history of schooling! I had a B allllll year during my senior year. Absolute terrible….But math is all good to me. Calculus, I can do it! But Physics…what do you all think? Any stories you have or people you know that do not like physics but still came through with computer science major?

Best answer:

Answer by Matt Hintzke
Do you actually not like physics? Or are you just not good at applying the math you learn to real world physics problems? If that is the reason then I would stick to it, because physics is hard, I am a Mechanical Engineering major (and actually might switch to CS myself) and I have to take the exact same physics classes that CS majors do. My advice would be to continue trying and eventually I am sure your brain will just “click” one day and you will understand it better. Plus, a B is not bad at all. I myself hate chemistry, but had to take a year of it my freshman year which was terrible, got two C’s. Both were the worst grades I have ever gotten in school. So stick with it and you will be ok.

Question by : I got an G in my science exam!!!?
Okayy well we got our GCSE results back today, and im predicted a C in all the sciences. In physics i got a G! In all the rest i did fine, but my teacher is going to be so dissapointed in me! It counts as 30% towards the final mark i think. :(
