Certainly a different view.

ICYMI: When cells are ailing, nearby healthy ones can send them vital molecules and even whole organelles through networks of hollow tubular connections.

Comment by Mrs.B on September 8, 2018 at 2:31pm

Amazing how our brains are just as good, huh?

I know several women who are in ''men's'' jobs now, but they were self taught because they couldn't take the classes.

Comment by Stephen on September 8, 2018 at 9:31am

She made the discovery, but a man got the Nobel. A half-century later, she’s won a $3 million prize.

When Jocelyn Bell Burnell began her doctoral studies in physics at Cambridge University in 1965, she was convinced that they had made a mistake by admitting her. “I’m not bright enough for this place,” she now recalls thinking.
It didn’t help that she was one of only two women in her graduate program. And Cambridge was far more affluent than anywhere she had lived before. Both factors likely contributed to her impostor syndrome, she told The Washington Post, “although of course we didn’t know that term then.”
Bell Burnell’s response was to work as hard as she possibly could. If they threw her out anyway, she figured, she would know that she wasn’t smart enough to be at Cambridge.

Her diligence ended up paying off. Two years after she arrived at Cambridge, Bell Burnell discovered the first pulsars — a groundbreaking revelation that on Thursday earned her the $3 million Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, which was previously awarded to Stephen Hawking, among others.
It’s a recognition that many feel is long overdue. Bell Burnell’s male PhD supervisor won a Nobel Prize for the same discovery — in 1974.
Like the stars of “Hidden Figures” and DNA researcher Rosalind Franklin, Bell Burnell’s personal story embodies the challenges faced by women in scientific fields. Born in Northern Ireland in 1943, she had to fight to take science classes after the age of 12. “The assumption was that the boys would do science and the girls would do cookery and needlework,” she told The Washington Post. “It was such a firm assumption that it wasn’t even discussed, so there was no choice in the matter.”

ICYMI: A tweak to the infamous “critical brain” hypothesis accounts for the brain’s stability and adaptivity.

Comment by Mrs.B on August 19, 2018 at 10:24pm

No, I did fine in other math, geometry etc., & went after school for extra algebra help, but it was almost like I had a mental block or something.

As for being ''told'' anything, my parents weren't interested in anything I did as long as I passed.

Comment by May the Big Bang RIP on August 19, 2018 at 10:02pm

Mrs.B, were you told that girls don’t do math or algebra?

My sister, in fourth grade when I was starting college, loved the simple math problems I asked her (which two numbers when added give 12 and when subtracted give 2?). One year later, in fifth grade, she hated them. I was sure someone told her she wasn’t supposed to like math.
