So when the Johnson and Johnson vaccine comes out- Which the USA has supposedly bought a hundred million doses of- doesn't that effectively mean the pandemic would be over within a few weeks?
It's a one dose vaccine. If we gave it to everyone over 65 (54,000,000 people) hospitalizations and deaths would drop by about 80,000,000 and we'd still have millions and millions of doses left for people that want them. That's ignoring the millions of people that have already gotten the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

Not currently. I used to teach sophomore organic chemistry labs, and had to grade exams/homework/quizes and hold office hours for the accompanying lecture courses.
It wasn't great.
Students fall into 3 groups:
1) smart/motivated, they will do well no matter what (5-15% of students)
2) the vast middle (up to 80% of students) - people who will get B/C grades and don't realize they could get A/B grades if they applied themselves, came to office hours, worked more exercises from the text.
3) real dumbasses, crazy, fully disengaged - they fail the course (5%).
Grading lab notebook pages, lab reports and exams is awful tedious work.
Using Gradescope for exams is better than doing it by hand. With Gradescope the students see the rubric, the need to write individualized comments is dramatically reduced, and the software does the arithmetic (no checking and double checking scores by page and total by exam packet with a calculator). It also removes the hollow threat about scanning and regrades (all packets are scanned, students no longer get the exam packet back with an opportunity to alter it and submit for a regrade).
there's a lot more that could be said, but being a TA sucks.

Yes. Plastic, pesticides and other industrial chemicals. Otherwise it may just be trendy to come out as """bisexual""" for women, as it immediately gives them some woke-points. Furthermore, it could be an instinctual response to overpopulation, changes in human societal structure or a million other things.

I'm currently learning about composition, and a lot of this stuff seems pseudoscientific. Is there any proof that the golden ratio being present somewhere in a picture actually has a psychological effect?

There are some old pieces of art that were made long before a lot of these new concepts in composition arose, and it seems like everybody is able to find these newly "discovered" patters in old masterpieces.

>>12608419
Well, humans tend to make/see a pattern in
something no matter what. From a aesthetic
standpoint, golden rectangles seem like the
"right" rectangles in terms of proportion and area. And one can reasonably build or draw
with it so that it looks good even if they didn't
know about the exact proportions.

And if one carries on seeing more instances of
this "right" figure, it then becomes a thing to
spam with in all sorts of art, even retroactively,
in order to justify that it is a "divine" figure to use.

From a mathematical standpoint, what I'm most
familiar with, it's just a fucking rectangle. And
moreover, the self similar property doesn't have
to use the golden ratio. See the British A-series
paper sizes to see that in action.

In short, the golden ratio may have neat
properties and pleases the eye in a way but any
use of it beyond math and art is practically bunk
and psychologically overblown.
