How much longer can the global trading system last? | Michael Pettis' CHINA FINANCIAL MARKETS -
Today's must read: "the US would be better off today by significantly modifying the way it participates in the global trading system. The longer it waits to do so, the riskier it will be, and either the more debt or the more unemployment it will have to accept. " - Piaw Na
Are we producing too few or too many science and technology grads? | Ars Technica -
"even though our graduate schools may be producing highly qualified researchers, the research they're prepared for is often only appropriate in an academic setting; commercial entities end up looking for a different set of skills. Industry also ends up looking for more people at early stages of their careers—the bachelors and masters levels—but only if they have a relevant skill set" No way! Commercial entities just want cheap STEM talent. It's got nothing to do with academic focus. - Piaw Na

Science Shows Something Surprising About People Who Love to Write - Mic -
"By writing about traumatic, stressful or emotional events, participants were significantly more likely to have fewer illnesses and be less affected by trauma. Participants ultimately spent less time in the hospital, enjoyed lower blood pressure and had better liver functionality than their counterparts. It turns out writing can make physical wounds heal faster as well. In 2013, New Zealand researchers monitored the recovery of wounds from medically necessary biopsies on 49 healthy adults. The adults wrote about their thoughts and feelings for just 20 minutes, three days in a row, two weeks before the biopsy. Eleven days later, 76% of the group that wrote had fully healed. Fifty-eight percent of the control group had not recovered. " I wonder if all this applies to blogging. :-) - Piaw Na
