Nick Bastone, provided by Published 7:07 pm CST, Thursday, March 7, 2019 Beth Andres-Beck As part of their compensation packages, most startups offer prospective employees shares in the company — but few, if any, can give any guidance on what that equity might be worth. To help startups workers figure out an answer, software engineer Beth Andres-Beck helped create a tool called "TLDR Stock Options." The tool is incredibly easy to use — only requiring people to enter in two pieces of information to understand their likelihood of either striking it rich or striking out. It can't tell you for sure if your stock will make you a millionaire, but it uses historical data to help you make an informed decision.

The speed of light is about 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second) in a vacuum. That can be tough to comprehend, so a scientist at NASA created several simple animations to demonstrate light’s speed. His latest video – which he described as “ridiculous” -shows how long it takes light to go from the sun to Pluto in real time. You’d need most of your working hours to watch the entire movie. The speed of light is not as fast as you might think. To underscore this point, a researcher at NASA created a simple new animation (below) that shows what light-speed travel looks like between from the sun to Pluto. James O’Donoghue, a planetary scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center, said he learned how to make animations only in the past few months. For practice and for fun, he created simple movies that show photons (particles of light) zipping around Earth, bouncing between our planet and the moon, and even travelling to Mars. … [Read more...] about A ‘ridiculous’ yet simple animation by a NASA scientist shows how long it takes light to reach Pluto.

Business This originally appeared on Quora. Answered by Michael Brulotte. As a resume and cover letter writer, I’ve worked with people from all walks of life—blue collar, white collar, professionals, and high-ranking executives—conceptualizing, polishing, perfecting, or completely overhauling their resumes. One thing consistently surprises me: there seems to be a low correlation between a person’s career success and their capacity to compose a solid resume. I often wonder how people have made it as far as they have with the resumes they’ve been using. The one that surprised me the most was the curriculum vitae of a successful lawyer. “A lawyer needs help writing?” I thought to myself. But did he ever, and it was obvious at first sight. Columns weren’t aligned, spelling conventions were inconsistent, important accomplishments were buried by run-on sentences, action verbs were weak and shifted tense for no reason, the … [Read more...] about What are the Most Common Mistakes Made on Resumes?
