    How Long Does It Take To Be A Master In Programming? I want to self-teach myself programming. I want to learn as many programming languages as I possibly can. I want to use just online resources. How long will this take? Also, any suggestions as to online resources to use for my self-teaching would be greatly appreciated.

    Knowledge Increasing Books? I have recently started reading a lot. I originally thought I liked fiction but I quickly realized I was lying to myself. I have been looking for books EVERYWHERE that fit my criteria to expand my knowledge and, quite honestly, to make myself more interesting in deeper conversations. That said, I love books that increase knowledge of things in a broader spectrum rather than in one rarely discussed topics. Examples of books I really enjoyed recently are “how to make friends and influence people” which has made me even more knowledgable on how to talk to people and made me even better at giving speeches than I already was. I also enjoyed “dream sight” which made me more aware of what I am seeing in my dreams and interpreting dreams to people makes you a sort of magician in their eyes. Another book I read (just to have something to discuss and converse with people about) was “mythology of ancient Egypt Mesopotamia Greece Rome.” I bought and read this book specifically for personal interest. I love learning about ancient gods just to see how interesting the imaginations of those who lived long ago (Egypt is insane though).
    What I am asking for in this question is what books might spark my interest? I am looking for one specifically about Ancient Greek gods and their stories. That said, any books about interesting topics that can be discussed with stupid people on a daily basis would be great. Thank you so much for your help
    Sorry Diane I did notice I put that earlier. What I meant by “stupid people” was people who can’t hold a long conversation and be serious about it. Everyone knows thar person and sometimes that person can be a friend or a possible employer
    I would also like to add that books that increase real life experiences and knowledge are also very interesting to me. For example: how to make friends and influence people, lying, dream sight. If you know any like these please mention them

    Help Me In English Sentences: “TIME-SENSITIVE”? I have short quote as follows:
    ” Other segments are more like NPR stories–unique perspectives on largely uncovered topics that ARENT’ TIME-SENSITIVE. You’ll get in-depth looks into developments in medicine, law, architecture, etc., that otherwise wouldn’t get on your radar unless you were in that profession. And, the writers incorporate the “larger questions” in stories focused on recent events. Like Malcolm Gladwell’s recent account of a playwright who plagiarized material from a former article written by him. He parlayed his personal struggle into a good summary of legal and ethical positions on the use or development of one person’s idea by another.”
    What does the phrase “AREN’T TIME-SENSITIVE” mean?
    Sincerely thank for helping.

    • Curator says:

      It means that they are stories that will still be interesting in a day or two, or a week, or a month, or a year from now. Whereas, most daily news stories are only of interest for a day or two and then they are no longer relevant.

    • Curator says:

      It’s stated pretty clearly: I.Q. measures not just the quality of a person’s mind but the quality of the world that person lives in and how that person lives. The “right” answers in IQ tests are based on socio-cultural biases – which means that they are not measuring “intelligence”, but “ability to reason abstractly in accordance with our own Western upper-class intellectual rules.

  • Essay For Outlier By Malcolm Gladwell? For AP language i have to write an essay on the book Outliers and whether i agree with every theory on success or not. I agree with him but im not exactly sure how to start the essay. I need help with the introduction. Please help?! This is due tomorrow.

    • Curator says:

      I would start with a general statement about the content and aim of the book. Something like:

      In Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell examines the lives of people who have achieved greatness in today’s world, with the aim of finding out what qualities make them stand out from the crowd. Are there ‘secrets” we can learn from these outliers in order to become successful ourselves? Gladwell challenges our usual assumptions about the self-made man or woman and proposes his own theory of how ordinary people become extraordinary.

      i haven’t read the book, i just wrote this based on looking through the book on amazon. It’s just an example of how your first paragraph could begin. You could then go on to say that while the book makes for entertaining and persuasive reading, not ever argument of his is water-tight. (Or some such wording.) Then you’d have to give at least 2-3 of his arguments that are questionable in some way. Since you are in general agreement, you could start with those ideas you find credible and offer some of your own personal observations (or things you’ve heard about) that make you agree with his points. Then finish with the few examples you don’t agree with. Finally, end with some overall conclusion. You could even rate the book with stars for a closing–like 3 or 4 stars for A and B reasons, but subtract 1 or 2 stars for X and Y reasons.

      I’d be curious to know if the ideas in the book are really easy to apply to one’s own advantage.

    I’m Totally Unsure Of Everything I Believe? At 17, I find myself annoyingly inclined to not be complacent with answers. I spend so much time thinking and researching seemingly aimless things- everything from Ayn Rand’s Objectivism to objectively measuring pain to physics jokes to the statistical implications of an NFL team getting a safety- that I procrastinate. But it bothers me! Everyone else is so tidy in their beliefs. They believe in objectivism or they don’t. They believe in Malcolm Gladwell’s theory in Blink or they don’t. They are fully republican or fully democratic. I, on the other hand, cannot name my point of view because I see the blatant errors in both points… Yet, I explain my potential points of view far better than my peers can. I am always questioning and it is aggravating me and my peers, because I am always looking for a debate in order to achieve some higher enlightenment. I over analyze everything anyone does… I do social experiments out of boredom. Okay. I should probably stop. Thoughts?

    • Curator says:

      I am going to take a stab in the dark so to speak…. Neither of us have anything to lose.

      Did you find that even when you were younger, you were aware of things that it seems that no one else your age was aware of?

      Did you not quite “fit” in with the rest of your peers growing up?

      Do you find you excel in mathematics?

      Do you like to organize things or the order in which you will do them, but always end up getting them done late?

      Do you work best under pressure, hence you wait until the last minute to complete something?

      Do you find it “tougher” to associate with people you own age?

      Are you not interested in things most people are interested in, but intensely follow other things that others would seemingly have no interest in?

      Okay, I will stop asking all these questions to you and give you a brief background on why I am asking all these questions…

      I can say I would answer “Yes” to all the above questions but at around the age of 19 I found 2 friends that thought in a similar way. We would have discussions on unlocking the key to the universe that would start at 10 PM and we would still be discussing the topic at 6 AM, when I would usually say “You think maybe we should get some sleep now?!”

      I have found out that this way of thinking could be a characteristic of a condition in psychology, but I am not a psychologist, so I cannot say what applies to me would apply to you. But I would leave off with you that if you put in the “Additional Comments” that you would like me to continue, I will be glad to go on. (Otherwise, I will just assume that I did not quite hit the target.) Thanks!
