While women make up nearly half of the general workforce, they represent only a quarter of the STEM workforce (Beede et al. 2011). While there are undoubtedly many reasons for this bias, this research is looking to determine causes at the beginning of the path, in students, and their math and science development within this stage.
The Coevolution of Language and Technology: Does Language Play a Role in Shaping the Evolution of Humans?
By MEHDI BAQRI, Orlando, Florida, the USA
There is an apparent incompatibility between both ends of the spectrum concerning the study of language: both the strictly Darwinian framework as well as the strictly semiotic view assume language as either an exclusively biological or cultural phenomenon.
However, approaching language in one way or the other disregards its multifaceted nature. Rather, treating language as a composite biocultural complex interlaces the networks populating the biosphere with the threads tying together the semiosphere (Sinha 3; Markoš 312; Lotman 209). Situating language as an artifact within a biocultural niche enables its unification with a rigid evolutionary framework, thereby allowing for the elision of supposedly independent biological and cultural evolutions into a single co-evolutionary process (Sinha 3; Gong and Shuai 22). Language, then, can be understood as both a distinctive part of the biological human being and the foundational human social institution, and through analyzing the relationship between biology and culture within the context of language, one can determine the role of language in shaping the evolution of humans.

In the year 1954, an American plastic surgeon by the name of Ralph Millard entered the country of South Korea as part of the United States Marine Corps. With him, he brought decades of knowledge in the plastic surgery field, as well as a strong interest in the cosmetic potential of the Asian face--an interest that would quickly develop into a racial obsession.
Originally designed to treat victims who had been severely injured during the Korean War, plastic surgery was deemed as a medical necessity when it was first established in South Korea. With the assistance of Millard, the procedure soon became more aesthetically based.
