2. The Esperanto culture is post-nationalistic. They purposely did not want to align with a specific country, and be global.
>I miss teaching a lot. Every day, in fact. But the truth is I’m so much happier than I’ve ever been. Getting out of teaching and not being emotionally invested in my work has forced me to do things besides work more. I’ve learned how to cook, I’m making new friends, I’m reading more, I’m rediscovering my love of things I used to do before I was ever a teacher all over again. I do productive things on the side too, like study for my CPA license.
>And the thing is now that I’m thinking about other things, I’ve learned so much about saving, investing, and I’m doing much better with my salary and working toward eventually being independent of a salary if at all possible.
>Your career is just one part of your life. You might not become a much happier person just because you do the work that satisfies you the most. You have to consider the effects it could have on you as a person besides just having to do the work. You should do the work that gives you balance, and not the work you love the most.
There's something to be said for it. It's not for everyone,there's some people who do work they find truly meaningful and are happy about devoting themselves to it. However, most people probably shouldn't look for meaning in their work less it traps them from experiencing meaning and happiness elsewhere.
To be clear, I am not saying nobody should ever make a career out of doing what they enjoy during in their free time, I'm saying it doesn't guarantee career satisfaction and there are potential pitfalls of going down that route. It also definitely should not be generic advice to everyone.
"Do it for the money" is good advice. I feel like if I were trying to find satisfaction in paid work I'd be unhappy.
Is that a joke?

A tool like this should definitely check to make sure it has actually reduced the file size and, if not, just return the original with a note that it couldn't make any gains.

At the end, he mentions that general statements never apply to everybody, and unique situations vary. Additionally, in California the law protects moreso than other states.
The main problem is that the raw organic semiconducting materials are currently not produced at scale, and no chemical company will risk ramping production when the end product is only a 5% efficient cell that will be outcompeted by c-Si in almost every application except niche cases like the chicken coops described by others here.
That being said, my best guess is that printable, flexible electronics will be seen in flexible displays/wearables within 5 years, RFID tags on product packaging in the same time frame, biomedical and soft robotics applications within 10, and flexible large-area lighting (think wallpaper with programmable lighting zones) within 10 as well.
But in the energy game, efficiency and raw material costs determine winners, and printed OPV is losing on both.
Maybe, but it is still true and something most users probably won't pay attention to but probably should.
"This is all part of the larger quest for a few major companies to hoover up every bit of data about you that they can. Now, they want to know all about your living space"
The other outcome besides being "effective and happy" is "turning something you enjoy into something you hate because now you have to do it." Just because you love doing something doesn't mean you love being forced to do it for someone else 40 hours a week.
It's pretty naïve to think that the things you enjoy in your free time are the things you enjoy doing for paid work and vise versa. I absolutely hate cleaning around my house, I hate everything about it, but I don't mind cleaning for paid work at all.
There's other issues too and quite a few people I know took that route ("doing what you love") and it lead to career dissatisfaction for various reasons.
Jobs have other "stuff" other than just your work, you may love X but hate working in X industry for various reasons, like work environment, salary, job prospects, etc.
The things you enjoy and are good are probably not even viable paid opportunities. (Nobody's going to pay you to put together model airplanes).
You don't get to "test drive" the vast majority of jobs at home first.
There's something to be about not being invested in your work and, essentially, not making your work the focus of your life.
A good review system translates to trust, which enables sales.
I don't fault them for this in the least because they did what they knew how to do to accomplish the task and the task was accomplished effectively, I was able to see their screen.
I just wrote a post where I go over the usual metrics for classification of deterministic targets then propose an alternative when the target is more of a stochastic nature. I would love to have your feedback about it !
