Today (May 7), marks the 150th anniversary of one of Alfred Nobel's patents for dynamite, which was first patented in 1867.

The explosive forever reshaped the world, revolutionizing warfare and construction, to the lifelong chagrin of its inventor Nobel. From its origins to its use in modern warfare to its eventual fate, here are some facts about the explosive.



Safer explosive
Though Nobel's invention was huge, it wasn't the first explosive created. Gunpowder was invented in China in the ninth century A.D., and had been used in European warfare since the 1200s. And in 1846, an Italian man, Ascanio Sobrero, had invented the highly volatile explosive nitroglycerin, according to the University of Bristol chemistry website. The process of making it was fairly simple: It involved adding glycerin to a mixture of nitric acid and sulfuric acid compounds. But nitroglycerin had a pesky habit: When it was impure it could explode without warning, and the slightest jostle could cause explosions as well, according to the University of Bristol.

Whether you’re an unsung mathematical genius with a penchant for writing complex equations all over everything or a damn vandal, you’ll find the WriteyDesk quite useful. This test is essentially a big whiteboard that upon which you can write, draw, or sketch and it’s erasable. It comes in white or “birch” and $300 on Kickstarter and $400 when it hits retail.

“But guy writing about a desk you can write on,” you say. “What happens if you smudge the ink?” I don’t know but you’d best be careful. I can imagine a lifetime of stained shirt sleeves and wrists with this thing if you’re not properly trained in the horizontal dry erase sketching arts.

This product was made by the same guys who made the paint that turns walls into whiteboards. They’re backed by Mark Cuban.

The team is trying to raise $25,000 on Kickstarter and it’s slow going so far but if you want to get a deal on a work surface that doubles as a white board so you, too, can write arcane equations and/or draw rude pictures on your desk then this is the item for you.

Making a career change is never easy, but few things are more motivating than the prospect of a good salary and a dearth of competition. That's a fair summary of the data science world today, as at least one well-publicized study has made clear, so why not investigate a little further?

There's been a flurry of free resources popping up online to help those who are intrigued learn more. Here's a small sampling for each step of the way.

Data Science

  1. Understanding Data Science: Microsoft's website might not automatically spring to mind as a likely place to look, but sure enough, a few months ago the software giant published a really nice series of five short videos entitled "Data Science for Beginners." Each video focuses on a specific aspect, such as "The 5 questions data science answers" and "Is your data ready for data science?"
  2. Look in more deeper: If you think you might be interested in a career in data science, you may want to start getting a feel for the lay of the land by tapping into some of the big blogs and community websites out there. The newly revamped OpenDataScience.com is one example; KDnuggets is another useful resource. A recent post on Data Science Central (another good site) lists key accounts to follow on Twitter. KDnuggets suggests some good e-books to read before plunging into a data science career.
  3. Learn the ropes: Still interested? Then you're probably going to need to acquire some skills, as Adam Flugel, a data-science recruiter with Burtch Works, noted in an interview earlier this year. DataCamp delivers instruction for both groups and individuals; other online options include Open Source Data Science Masters and this introductory textbook, which is available as a free PDF through a Creative Commons license. KDnuggets has a nice list of its own with other good options.
  4. Get a Job: There are lots of places to look for data scientist jobs today, including the aforementioned OpenDataScience.com, which has a section dedicated to that purpose. Kaggle has a jobs board of its own, and there are more to be found on Glassdoor and Indeed.com. Correlation One, a site that just launched earlier this year, bills itself as a matchmaker for data scientists and employers.
  5. Start impressing: Once you get an interview, there's nothing more confidence-building than expert tips for acing it. Look no further than KDnuggets, which has published just what you need in a post entitled, "21 Must-Know Data Science Interview Questions and Answers." Good luck!
