Re: Women in STEM
Employeers should not pay less to females who have the same education, capacity, and experience than their male counterparts.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
Yes, it should even be a discussion about it at this point. It only shows how little society has evolved.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
 @Susan Fourtane I know. It shouldn't even be a discussion about the sexes anymore. It should be about who is best qualified for a particular job, and at the same rate of pay.

Re: Women in STEM
I wonder if the imbalance in the workplace may have an effect on pay scales, considering women are "47% of the total employed -- hold only 24% of STEM positions," and that might allow employers to consciously or not pay less for females who would have less standing in the better paid positions.

Re: Women in STEM
Freehe: I don't undersatnd either why women are paid less than men. It's ridiculous that in 2018 this still happens.

Re: Women: The Unmined Gems of Everything
srufolo: sometimes in discussions like this I find it unbelievable that we are living in the 21st century and yet, so many women still strugle to get recognition in fields that were once dominated my men. No society can call itself advanced if it doesn't recognize the achievements of their women.

Re: STEM
Perhaps then society should start by not programming all girls in roles as mothers. Not every woman wants to have children. Having a demanding career is also a life choice which is utterly rewrading.

Or Caroline Herschel, the first woman to discover a comet. And so many others. If interested, here are more: https://interestingengineering.com/female-inventors-and-their-inventions-that-changed-the-world-and-impacted-the-history-in-a-revolutionary-way

What I always find interesting about many of those women is that in their times it was not always common for a woman to receive the same education men had. Despite that, they were perseverant, most of them were self-taught, and accomplished incredible things. Their lives were hand but fascinating.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
