¿Un doctorando en la sala?

Eng

Un poco de risoterapia para colaborar con la I+D del país (que cada uno piense del suyo):

- ¡Aaaaah! ¡Esta investigación es IMPOSIBLE!
- Mira lo que acaba de salir
"Publicación con el mismo título que pensabas ponerle a tu tesis"
¡Aaaaah! Alguien lo ha publicado ya!

Piled Higher and Deeper es una tira cómica del dibujante Jorge Chan sobre las aventuras de tres doctorandos en Informática de la Universidad de Stadford (sí, sí, ésta misma). No hay que investigar en el mismo campo para sentirse identificado con estos pobres inocentes, porque las situaciones que cuentan son la realidad cotidiana de cualquier universidad. En esta tira por ejemplo, hablan de las correcciones a los artículos y ese sentimiento de que hay que volver a empezar desde el principio...

Aquí podéis leer más comentarios sobre este magnífico cómic:
Becas irrisorias, el exacerbado ego de los profesores universitarios, el estrés contínuo acompañado de litros de café, vida social inexistente, adicción al chocolate, doctorados que nunca terminan y se alargan hasta el infinito y más allá...

PhD es un juego de palabras: en inglés el acrónimo significa Doctorando universitario pero el acrónimo del autor significa algo así como cada vez más hundido en el trabajo (más amontonado, más alto, más profundo", refiriéndose a las pilas de papeles que se amontonan en nuestras mesas).

Creo que ya ha quedado clara la temática de la tira ;-)

Most people do not know they can sell an insurance policy. These policies also accumulate cash value along with the death benefits. [url=http://www.mmplifeinsurance.co.uk/]http://www.mmplifeinsurance.co.uk/[/url] The insurer remains active in equity investment, despite its efforts to increase its high yield and low beta position. It will be absolutely necessary to have this type of coverage if you want your family and their financial well being to be protected. The policies were purchased for business purposes. This insurance, however, will not usually pay for funeral expenses et cetera.

A massive 39% of Brits are overweight, numerically that's a whopping 23 million people walking around with an extra few pounds. Life settlement companies will pay you cash to take over ownership of your policy including making any remaining premium payments in return for receiving the death benefit when you die. Reliance Life - which, unlike most of its local rivals, has no foreign partners - also has the option of a "strategic sale of up to 20% to raise funds," the company said in a statement. Nevertheless, watch out for internet scams or frauds by watching these crucial things that you should be aware of.

All insurance providers - online or offline - need to have the right kind of licenses from the state departments. Where to put hard-earned or extra money with higher returns is the biggest concern in investing.

Insurers typically ask questions about annual income and net worth, in part, to ensure that buyers can afford the premiums. The underwriting policy may determine whether the insurer will cover the risks of aviation or mountain climbing for example and any additional premium required to provide cover for these risks. They need life insurance, but if they want a new boat.

There are several types of life insurance policies and some may accrue a cash value that you can borrow from or even use as income. Genworth has applied to have its purchase of a thrift operation as a qualifying step to access banking sector relief funding. The result could lead to improved finances while you are still alive.
