The average age of a painter is 60.
It took 30 years for the average person to learn to read.
However, it only took about 5 years to learn to drive a car because this is a skill that can be learned and retained over time.
A skilled engineer can be hired in just 3 months, whereas a skilled teacher can take several years to learn because their knowledge of engineering is not as well known.

In a recent article on the Huffington Post, Mark Bittman suggests the “good” things that happened in 2012 on climate change will be lost in a flood of “bad” stories—or, alternatively put, the “good” things that didn’t happen will continue to be lost in the flood of “bad” stories.
The headline? The Obama administration’s new “Climate Plan Is Still a Disaster.”
Bittman seems to think the climate debate will be over now that we may have finally gotten some government action—and maybe even a bit of climate action—on reducing the carbon emissions blamed for climate change. He then concludes that it has a long way to go when the Obama White House is forced to release a new climate plan just days before the COP21 summit in Paris.
But, as this is an article on the Huffington Post and not the New York Times, I will suggest the article is wrong. Let me give my own perspective on the “climate apocalypse” for the rest of the year 2014.
Here is the full text of the Huffington Post article:
The Obama administration is finally making progress in limiting the temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius by 2050, and the next two years may offer the best hope yet for halting global warming.
In September, Obama and world leaders reached a new agreement in Paris to slow development of the next generation of emissions that would make that the biggest achievement of U.S. climate change policy.
The deal puts the world on track to limit global warming to below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, an area that has been defined as the threshold at which the world becomes unlivable.
Obama has proposed a wide range of steps to bring that limit to zero, including raising carbon taxes, banning new coal-fired power plants, closing down coal-dependent countries that don’t contribute to the greenhouse gas, reining in fossil fuel use and using more renewable-energy energy, and creating or subsidizing green energy.
