    I thought maybe he was up to something, until his response there. I guess he lives in a place where the maths works in different ways. I find no way to communicate with him on a common ground.

    Old thread where you posted this but I am rereading and see how right you were. Thanks.

    Yeah, I think that sums up the main problem with the math part of Common Core: developed by academics, but implemented by novices.

    Oh, I did not catch that one. This is why your proofs are so much more elegant than mine.

    Thank you for answering my question. Without actually practicing science I am not fully aware of how scientists perceive their endeavor. I'm not sure if it is a misperception on my part but I often get the feeling from some scientists that they believe they are describing the world as it it. Even from physicists.

    I don't get that impression from you though.

    Thanks for this post. All the preceding sophistry was making me dizzy!

    Boom! If they had done everything in furlongs from the start, there never would have been a problem...

    My candy bar analogy goes like this: You are a start up business and you want to sell one candy bar. You Buy the materials to create the candy bar for 50Cents. Since you are too lazy to sell the candy bar yourself, you decide to hire someone else to sell it for you. You want him/her to sell it for $1, and it sells. Because this is a business with only two people, and because it is a mutually beneficial relationship, the single employee in the gets 25 Cents, and the business owner would also get 25 Cents. However, if it came down to Two employees selling candy bars, The business owner gives 50% Of the profit to them both to split according to how many candy bars each employee sold. But then the business gets more complex... The business owner decides he is to lazy to manage his two employees now, and hires a 'manager' a white collar laborer to mange the two blue collar employees. Because the white collar laborer isn't directly selling product, but is still doing a great service, he/she should get paid half of the remaining profit from the business owners profit, after the blue collar laborers receive their profit.

    There are a couple of technological solutions I can think right off, then there a few policy solutions which are really approximations with the aim of achieving 'fair pay'.

    If you look in my ideology at the Way I recommend how businesses should function in regards to their employees, I actually have this very specific model which tries to achieve 'exactly fair pay' as close as possible. For example, in any business, There are going to be more blue collar workers (low-level employees) vs White-Collar Employees. I consider the blue collar employees the people that directly generate profit, and the white collar employees the employees that help to maintain profit, and increase profit margins. That Is why I contend that the Blue collar laborers should get 50% of the total profit of a business (which gets split accordingly to peoples work, work hours, position level etc. I contend that White collar laborers should get 25% of the profit (again split accordingly to who has higher positions in the business), then the last guy, the business owner/manager gets 12.5%.

    one technologies that can help achieve 'fair pay' is a brain scan monitoring technology that reports if workers are working or not. however, i do not believe it should be enforced, but optional for the employee to use, and if an employee optionally does not want to take it, should be approximated by their work hours and position level. Ultimately, fair pay at least in my ideologies sense, does a really good job without technology, since it is determinate on work hours and position level, and uses what I consider an 'exactly' fair percentage basis. If you believe that the percentage levels to be arbitrary, I will be happy to use my candy bar analogy.
