Here you see gifs of people walking across hot coals that are over 1000 degrees F (535 degrees C).
Some say it’s a mind over matter phenomena. UCLA physics say it’s because when someone walks over hot coals, they walk pretty fast. It takes time for heat to transfer from the coal to the feet. If a foot isn’t in contact with the coal for a long enough time period, the foot won’t get badly burned.
One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.

The drive from Lone Pine to Lee Vining was great! Stopped in town to pick up some supplies and check out where to camp, due to a crazy storm I wasn’t able to see the mono lake. Next time for sure. I stuck it out and waiting for the storm to pass, when I did I found a great site in the Aspen campgrounds off highway 120. Stayed nice and dry and warm throughout the night. Now I’m headed west, explore Yosemite and make my way to San Francisco by the night.
I belong on the road.
