The rest are for general web development positions.

    In general STEM jobs requiring candidates are the same as any job requiring candidates. They need actually qualified people. You are one of them. The problem comes mostly from certified or what have you people who aren't qualified and businesses that don't recognize training time when they have positions nobody is qualified for. They usually just end up churning through candidates.

    In general I do think STEM educations with more liberal arts exposure are good for training a workforce as opposed to straight liberal arts developed critical thinking, but this idea of entitlement "i got my degree where's my job?" goes back to what more and more older professors complain about with the younger generation. People go through the motions and expect the plate to be handed to them, they don't actually pursue things of interest. You mentioned that you actively stay ahead of the curve, part of that is self interest in staying ahead, part of it is the developments are interesting. Nowhere in there do you take the stance "if my company wants me to learn that they should send me to a class".

    The worst part of it is comparatively while other countries students are usually strictly rote learners who have a hard time adapting to research learning at least they have instilled discipline to master a subject. Our current educational models don't even try to do that anymore leading to work ethic issues.

    Don't remember if this was posted.

    Scientists make ‘impossible material’ … by accident

    Researchers in Uppsala, Sweden accidentally left a reaction running over the weekend and ended up resolving a century-old chemistry problem. Their work has led to the development of a new material, dubbed Upsalite, with remarkable water-binding properties. Upsalite promises to find applications in everything from humidity control at home to chemical manufacturing in industry.

    Scientists Achieve On-Demand Quantum Teleportation For The First Time | Popular Science

    Quantum teleportation has taken another step forward, thanks to two complimentary experiments, one from ETH Zurich and one from the University of Tokyo. The researchers have demonstrated the most reliable yet version of quantum teleportation--what Nature is calling "quantum teleportation on demand."

    Celery, artichokes contain flavonoids that kill human pancreatic cancer cells

    Celery, artichokes, and herbs, especially Mexican oregano, all contain apigenin and luteolin, flavonoids that kill human pancreatic cancer cells in the lab by inhibiting an important enzyme, according to two new University of Illinois studies.
    So eat your goddamn veggies.

    Computer can read letters directly from the brain

    By analysing MRI images of the brain with an elegant mathematical model, it is possible to reconstruct thoughts more accurately than ever before. In this way, researchers from Radboud University Nijmegen have succeeded in determining which letter a test subject was looking at.
