I would guess they are less common due to the problems of combining any type of freelance work with childcare - there are very few options that are flexible enough to fit around periods of working/not working. And as women still do most of the child care...
What level of effort?
I don't think one was specified.
A PRICE that Elsevier charge was mentioned. I don't think the price is justified. There is still work to be done that somebody, somewhere in the process needs to do.
Maybe mathemeticians do
Congolese doctors working on public health projects don't.
There is more to journal publishing than primary research in hard sciences.
Sky and Virgin couldn't do it.
If you think the authors get shafted
you should see what happens to the journal staff.
There seems to be a general view
here that the journals do not contribute anything and are just extracting profit for doing nothing. While not to defend Elsevier, and their generally high prices and low standards this is to understimate the work that DOES go into them from the publishing industry.
They ARE edited and copy-edited - and this can be quite extensive, especially in the case of non-native english speakers. Not all journals are primary research only. Reviews journals activley comission content, and can play a part in trying to focus debate etc. Conversly, editors reject papers with no merit before someone has to go the trouble of peer reviewing it. Peer reviewing requires a more input from those organising it than an outline of the process would suggest.
Whatever model you use, these things need to be done. Who by and where in the process is another question.
11 . It encourages Apple
to continue with their vile smug marketing.
12. Someone might think you are the kind of person that LIKES Apples vile , smug marketing.
You know, like drinking WKD marks you out as someone who wants people to think of them as a complete twat.
I don't understand why anyone would ever go to a supermarket unless forced to. Horrible places. The saving in terms of time, effort and not having to go to a supermarket of online grocery shopping outweighs a marginal increase in cost.
So if we don't
want policy based on the best data available what do we want it based on?
How are questions on religious views intrusive?
Rather than striving for a notion of privacy that doesn't exist anymore we should be promoting accuracy and equality of access to data.
If you are runnig for any length of time
you probably already have your phone with you so just use an app on that. Runkeeper works on Android and iOS and does everything I need it to.
Just to say
I've got an android phone and haven't had any of these problems.
If you don't want to use it
don't use it.
Is one or two orders of magnitude out from the level of accuracy needed for applying this in sport.
And as the article pointed out - the problem here is the interference from the players/stadium etc. Not a boat where you will have a direct line of sight to all satellites at all time.
I don't want more security
I want the bank to reimburse me if I do get defrauded. This is what I pay them for either in interest or by lending them my money.
Where there is security it would be nice if it was actually secure.
