The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Job-Skill Mismatch?

ShopFloor is the blog of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).  Here a Mr Carter Wood writes a post titled "A Higher-Education Bubble?  Tell it to the Zombies".

The lede for the blog post is that The Washington Post had two articles noted, one being about the Education Bubble and the other about the University of Baltimore offering a course on Zombies.

The thurst of the blog post is that there are jobs out there, but to get one you need to have skills other than knowing how to deal with Zombies.  To make it even more oppressive, Mr Carter Wood suggests that there is an education and training problem.
We have a mismatch. We have people out there that are skilled and trained, let’s say, to work in a retail showroom or to work in a MacDonalds or a restaurant. They are not necessarily trained to be able to know what a radius is or to know how to read a tape measure or to know how to read a blueprint or know how to change a bearing, or a die set in a robot.
Are there, in fact, jobs out there?  Jobs waiting for the right skill sets?
