Parents like that it tracks progress through the curriculum and helps kids advance by teaching with individualized curriculum that assures mastery of the skills and concepts that makes kids succeed.
If you are a school teacher or an involved parent you will find our math worksheets helpful and easy to use. Future chemistry faculty will have to be twice as smart, work with twice the efficiency, and reach the correct positions of influence if they want this type of unhealthy cultural attitudes to finally be put to rest. Update 2: The underlying macroeconomic cause for why professors can get away with this behavior. Update 3: This story has really struck a cord, thank you for sharing this link and supplying our first 20,000 visitor day!
From now on, I or someone designated by me will take attendance at group meetings starting at 9:10 am.
I wonder whether you would think it fair to be judged on the basis of a letter 14 years old, especially when the comments and rash judgments are made without knowledge of the context or the circumstances surrounding the individuals involved.
Update 6: Comparatively tame letters from Paul Gassman and Albert Meyers, but they have some good information in them about standard expectations.
For those who have no idea what salary levels are – the current Chemistry graduate student salary at a NY State university is around $24K per year. Postdoc salaries are highly variable – the worst I heard was an offer for $28K a year at a major university in Texas (2006). You have to be passionate about what you are doing or you are not going to put up with this. Postdoc pay and benefits in industry, IME, range from the paltry (with companies that are in the game for cheap labor) to quite generous. Well, slavery was not surprising and very common before, but it doesn’t mean that slavery is justified because it was common.
I have friends who work for Lucasfilm, and except for movie crunch times, they lead pretty reasonable lives. Another trend in graduate schools that I find disturbing is that 80 percent of graduate students in United States schools are not citizens of the US. At the same time, trough this practice, the USA is taking the best and brightest of other countries for its own benefit.
More like they’ll work for less and be more compliant, saving the company money which removes it from the economy. Look at the people that has made great things for America, from Tesla and Einstein to Linus, Wozniak and Sergey Brin, and you will a significant part of them are immigrants. Some people think attracting the best people from around the world and create wealth inside is good for a country, better than having them directly compete with them. Foreign people in the USA don’t not like being discriminated against for their origins any more we folks from the United states. The pay in graduate school is so low and the expected years as a postdoc made me abandon my PhD. I got my master’s degree 25 years ago and when my job ended due to end of contracts I tried to go back too school.
With too many PhD.s for the market to bear the truly economic thing to do is END ALL GOVERNMENT GRANTS FOR RESEARCH.
No its because the corporations that own the laws want cheap labor so they demand more visas from their bought and paid for government.
I did my MS in the US and headed back to India after I found the H1B process too difficult and asinine to navigate.
US universities are using foreign grad students because there are so few domestic students going for PhDs in these fields.
When I went to FAU in 2003, I got 16 grants a year as a teaching assistant, and I had to pay my own insurance mandated by the school (which did not cover anything -hence the increasing debt on my credit cards), and tuition fees. Not to mention the fact that American science was always depending on foreigners – starting from the nuclear power to the space race and beyond.
If being a beggar a skill for a high salary then no none will produce anything and the whole system collapses.
I have seen this on the webs now and again, since 1996 (_wink_), and it never ceases to make me smile. A PhD these days is not a ticket to a good career, young people must know that before entering into a long period of abuse followed by a much longer period of anxiety (poor job market for science these days, you know).
As a software developer, I’m familiar with an environment that is results-oriented, and where plenty of hours in a week get spent to achieve results when important deadlines loom. Not to be a downer, but do you really think, the word ‘currently’ should be used in that sentence when the letter is from 1996? What is meant by evenings and weekends is you (being a recent grad student) only need to be in 8 instead of 14 hours! No, it is evidence of both a remarkable work ethic and being able to do really impressive science.
The most interesting point: _every_ scientific investment of effective work loads proofs the author of the letter totally wrong.

For some of the quotes on this page, I have designed a one page printable poster that you can download for free. Leading up to my birthday I wrote a post on what I learned in my 20s.But I did something else. Our site homeschooling curriculum gives students independence as they progress at their own pace.
Indeed how does anyone out who is so quick to pass judgement and who is coming to conclusions know that it is not part of a 14-year old joke (or satire as you state) that backfired?
I don’t think this is a bad thing, taking into account that we make more money than the average citizen, we work long hours doing things we enjoy, we travel a lot and take time off as often as we need.
A few years back, when I was a grad student at Scripps, James Watson (as in Watson and Crick) gave a talk there. Basically, the larger the company, the better the pay and benefits, just like for any other staff position. I haven’t asked much, but from what little I know, I gather Lucasfilm is savvy enough to not want to burn out their people. Many are internationals, true, and many of them will end up staying in the USA contributing to USA science and economy.
I’m a foreigner that found disturbing the amount of other foreigners studying graduate programs here in the US in comparison to US citizens, so I agree with your first point of view. The job prospects for any PhD have significantly declined, further more PhD’s are being minted than ever before.
Running around for a job with an artifiicial deadline to find one by, the whole thing was demeaning and incredibly frustrating. Look into a regular lab and you will probably find more foreigners (mainly Asians and Europeans) doing the job that Americans don’t want to do because tuitions are are high and the post-doc salary is not worth mentioning. And grad students are needed to do the work in the lab, and to teach the undergrads in the teaching labs.
The current academic culture needs to change (much like many corporate cultures!) but their size, tradition and momentum dictate that change will come slowly and incrementally.
I sent an email out to my subscribers (subscribe here) and asked readers age 37 and older what advice they would give their 30-year-old selves.
Get publishable stuff soon and set a pipeline of papers and your advisor will be happy, even if you are at the beach. Grad students make considerably less money than the average (working) citizen, and postdocs usually make average at best. The faculty didn’t seem to care about the subject nearly as much as their personal prestige and the number of publications on their CVs, which made it difficult to muster the enthusiasm necessary to spend every waking moment studying. To maximize productivity, people have to love their jobs, and letters like this are not the kind of thing that creates love.
It’s going to get its ass kicked in the competition for prestige, funding and, ironically, students and postdocs as well. For most Americans the pay when one finally does finish the long hours and the many years of postdocing does not make reasonable compensation for the effort. Many of those foreigners earned their PhD degree in their home country and work in the US for cheap labor and the US government hasn’t spent a penny on them.
The idea was that I would crowdsource the life experience from my older readership and create another article based on their collective wisdom. The frequency of vacation, time taken off and other non-lab activities is bordering on the ridiculous.
In fact I would NEVER recover the money lost to schools during my PhD compared to the money I could make as a call center representative. All the stories I read about H1B and student visas from countries like India and China is that the migrants are returning to their home countries for work. So if you want Americans doing the job, you should write NIH a letter suggesting to increase our salary to 100K, so it becomes more attractive for american students. In case you forgot, the standard amount of time you are supposed to take is 2 weeks a year total, including Christmas. It has improved, but given that the expectations are 60-80 hours a week minimum – you do the math. I still have my credit cards to pay back -because, you know, as a non-American, I was not able to get a student loan.
I also want to say that the average lab citizenship and community spirit of keeping the lab in functioning order is at an all-time low.
The same 5-6 pieces of advice came up over and over and over again in different forms across literally 100s of emails. Few people seem to care about fixing broken equipment and making sure things in the lab run smoothly.
It seems that there really are a few core pieces of advice that are particularly relevant to this decade of your life.Below are 10 of the most common themes appearing throughout all of the 600 emails.
If the lab were extremely productive and everyone was totally focused on their work, I might understand the slovenliness but productivity is abysmal and if we continue along this path we will surely reach mediocrity in no time.
Start Saving for Retirement Now, Not Later“I spent my 20s recklessly, but your 30s should be when you make a big financial push.
Understanding boring things like insurance, 401ks & mortgages is important since its all on your shoulders now.

I would have been more diligent about a retirement fund, because now mine looks pretty small.” Gee whiz! Saving is so easy and so fun!And then there were the readers who were just completely screwed by their inability to save in their 30s.
Her career took a turn for the worst and now she’s stuck at 57, still living paycheck to paycheck. They later got divorced and she soon ran into health problems, draining all of the money she received in the divorce settlement.
She, too, now lives paycheck to paycheck, slowly waiting for the day social security kicks in. One woman emailed me saying that she had worked low-wage jobs with two kids in her 30s and still managed to sock away some money in a retirement fund each year. Because she started early and invested wisely, she is now in her 50s and financially stable for the first time in her life. These were emails from cancer survivors, heart attack survivors, stroke survivors, people with diabetes and blood pressure problems, joint issues and chronic pain.
I think that between 30 and 40 is the decade when a lot of shit finally starts to happen that you might have thought never would happen to you or those you love. Parents die, spouses die, babies are still-born, friends get divorced, spouses cheat… the list goes on and on. It takes a lot of sacrifice to achieve anything special in life.”A few readers noted that most people arbitrarily choose their careers in their late teens or early 20s, and as with many of our choices at those ages, they are often wrong choices. It may mean ditching a career they spent a decade building and giving up money they worked hard for and became accustomed to. Don’t Be Afraid of Taking Risks, You Can Still Change“While by age 30 most feel they should have their career dialed in, it is never too late to reset.
The individuals that I have seen with the biggest regrets during this decade are those that stay in something that they know is not right. When I asked my mom this question, her answer was, “I wish I had been willing to think outside the box a bit more. Many readers related the choice of going back to school and getting their degrees in their 30s as one of the most useful things they had ever done. Others checked themselves into therapy or began a meditation practice.As Warren Buffett once said, the greatest investment a young person can make is in their own education, in their own mind. Stop assuming you can plan far ahead, stop obsessing about what is happening right now because it will change anyway, and get over the control issue about your life’s direction.
Fortunately, because this is true, you can take even more chances and not lose anything; you cannot lose what you never had. While this is disturbing to those who cling to permanence or security, it’s truly liberating once you grasp the truth that things are always changing. Sorrow is part of everyone’s lifetime and the consequence of an open and passionate heart. They are always going to see you as their kid until the moment you can make them see you as your own man.
Take advantage of the time you have left to set things right and enjoy your family.” (Kash, 41)I was overwhelmed with amount of responses about family and the power of those responses.
Family is the big new relevant topic for this decade for me, because you get it on both ends. Your parents are old and you need to start considering how your relationship with them is going to function as a self-sufficient adult. And then you also need to contemplate creating a family of your own.Pretty much everybody agreed to get over whatever problems you have with your parents and find a way to make it work with them. You will never regret it.” (Kevin, 38)“It’s never the ‘right time’ for children because you have no idea what you’re getting into until you have one.
Try to stay open to the experience and fluid as a person; your marriage is worth it, and your happiness seems as much tied to your ability to change and adapt as anything else. Children are the most fulfilling, challenging, and exhausting endeavor anyone can ever undertake. Ever.” (Rich, 44) What do you want kid?The consensus about marriage seemed to be that it was worth it, assuming you had a healthy relationship with the right person. I would add, don’t forget to actually grow up and start a family and take on responsibilities other than success at work. This is the part of the website where I put a big toothy grin on my face and scream “BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!” at you in hopes to hold your attention for more than 30 milliseconds.Because wait, there actually is more. If you’d like to learn more about where some of the ideas from these articles came from and hear my responses to critical feedback, and if you’re interested in hearing me answer reader questions like I’m Anne fucking Landers and talk a bit more about my own experiences, my business ventures, and what I eat for breakfast on Sundays, well, then there actually is more.
