Freshmen double majoring in CS and Econ, summer break is starting and I'm just facing rejection over rejection in my unis summer research position applications and programs.

I placed out of a good chunk of CS Classes and take the CS Classes alongside the less impressive portion of the department's sophomore batch but I realize that it amounts to nothing without a programming portfolio and not just some min wagetard jobs.

I've accepted that I'm not getting any summer program, but does anyone have any recommendation for what I can do better for the coming semesters?

That is the choice between pain and poverty vs. a hope of getting a job

That, my fiend, is the undeniable truth.

So as you see the problem is that : For even numbers, divide by 2;
For odd numbers, multiply by 3 and add 1.
With enough repetition, do all positive integers converge to 1? The reason to why it converges to 1 is simply because if you look at 2 and 3 they go up to 4 which is bigger than 3 and 3 goes to 6 so if you see the 4 of 2 eats the number itself and all the numbers above 3 so with some mechanics you can reason the reason and it's because it goes to 1. This can also show that maybe 1 is prime because 4-3 goes back to 1. Any thought pls thanks.

do you look like a faggot?
computers can now tell if you're gay just by looking at you.

of course its still considered prejudice if you judge people by the way they look, even though everyone knows that computers are programmed with their programmers' biases.

He's a self replicating god of torture and slavery. He puts symbols on the front door of the stores where he works. I'm not sure how else to say that. This suggests this entire reality has a purpose which we aren't aware of. But, because of the nature of sex. We also have a strong theory here that we are being used for slavery. He's stealing from us. If you don't have sex, you got scammed by the Lord.

I don't know, maybe I'm wrong but this idea of an electrostatic field that should generate trust thanks to the asymmetry sounds to me like the story of the man who got inside a bucket and tried to lift himself by pulling the handle.

Climate scientist Stephen Schneider of NOAA in the October 1989 issue of Discover magazine admitted that climate scientists intentionally mislead the public about global warming as a means of forwarding their political goals:

>Stephen Schneider of the National Center for Atmospheric Research described the scientists’ dilemma this way:
>“On the one hand, as scientists, we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but—which means that we must include all the doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands, and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well.

>And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that we need to get some broad-based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This ‘double ethical bind’ we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”

Cherry blossoms bloom in Tokyo, 15 days later than last year, 5 days later than average

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/03/29/japan/society/cherry-blossoms-bloom-tokyo/

Cherry blossoms finally burst into bloom in Tokyo on Friday after heavy rain in the morning, marking the latest blooming in over a decade.
The declaration of the blooming made by the Meteorological Agency came 15 days later than last year and five days later than in an average year. Private forecasters had also expected this year's bloom to come much earlier.

Friday’s blooming is the latest in Tokyo since 2012, when cherry blossoms were declared to have blossomed on March 31, according to the agency.

Cherry blossom forecasting is big business in Japan. As early as in January, companies start to issue forecasts for when cherry blossoms will first bloom and reach their peak.

The weather agency, which began forecasting the annual bloom in 1955, sets a government standard for observing cherry blossom trees. For consistency, the meteorological agency only uses data gathered from the Somei-Yoshino variety, which produces pale pink blossoms.

The tech for extreme longevity through patient matched organ banks exists today but is thwarted by moralfag ANIMALS.

Let me explain how:
>Make a woman pregnant with a genetic clone of the patient (this is possible today)
>While the fetus is developing inhibit the Hox-genes responsible for head differentiation (no brain = no suffering caused)
>The woman births a headless body that is genetically identical to the patient
>Keep the body alive as it develops to adulthood via tube feeding or IV nutritional solution, add relevant hormones for appropriate growth
And voila you have a genetically matched organ bank. As the patient reaches organ failure due to old age/telomere shortening/epigenetic dysfunctional additions you replace the organs with young ones, with no immunosuppressant therapy needed.

When this is achieved the only missing piece is rejuvenation of the brain and when that is achieved you have biological immortality/extreme longevity. Not only would something like this be extremely useful, it would birth a new industry that would generate insane wealth as the market is every single person on Earth.
