  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Nous entendons souvent les phrases comme «univers envoyer des messages» ou «sérendipité» lorsque les gens décrivent un événement qui change la vie inattendue, ou une invention qui est arrivé de façon inattendue comme une conséquence totalement involontaire bien sûr par ailleurs normal d'actions. En tant que scientifique, je ne pense qu'aucune nouvelle invention qui se passe soit par la meilleure conception d'expériences ou de la chance coïncidence pris isolément. Une analyse plus approfondie révèle toujours que toute invention notable est souvent le résultat d'une réunion synergique de probabilité statistique avec la stratégie bien planifiée, à savoir qu'il est une combinaison de l'incertitude avec certitude qui se produit au bon moment dans le bon endroit. Que Louis Pasteur a déclaré correctement, le hasard ne favorise toujours que les esprits préparés. Donc à mon avis, vous devez garder votre esprit alerte, vif et bien préparé à tout moment tout en travaillant sur vos objectifs, parce que vous ne savez jamais quand sérendipité vous rendra visite, ou lorsque univers serait tapez sur votre épaule pour vous donner les signes fortuites. Seulement votre esprit préparé vous permettrait d'accueillir merveilleuse sérendipité dans votre vie, et de comprendre les signes subtils envoyés par univers.

    I was particularly upset by the use of the phrase ‘showing flesh’ by two individual university officials as an explanation for why I was not allowed in, fortunately that phrase doesn’t appear in the dress code, but it and similar phrases have on several occasions that I know of, been offered as the reason for barring entry to female students.

  5. Said Bennett:

    We must not ignore the torrents of truly bad news and educational failure we are facing, or brush over it with phrases like ‘delayed learning,’ but more importantly, going forward, when we find an example that jumps out for not just bucking the trend but for blowing the doors off it — we must understand what is driving that.
