RENO, Nev., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- What's an educated, single woman with a college degree supposed to do if she wants to meet someone as educated as her? For the first time in American history, women outpace men in acquiring college and post-graduate degrees. According to the 2010 Census, among adults 25 and older, 10.6 million U.S. women have master's degrees or higher, compared to 10.5 million men. When it comes to finishing college, roughly 20.1 million women have bachelor's degrees, compared to nearly 18.7 million men — a gap of more than 1.4 million.
Single ladies looking for their educational and financial equal might need to reach across racial lines and state borders for compatible mates.
DateWhoYouWant.com, a subsidiary of InterracialDating.com recently gathered information from one million members of their database, revealing which states had the highest concentration of college-educated single men who were open to interracial and intercultural relationships. Those states are California, New York, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey.
So, would you move to a different state for the prospect of love...and money?
Wendy Jones, an MBA graduate living in Las Vegas, NV is contemplating moving to Texas (number 3 on the list) in hopes of finding someone special. With Nevada having the lowest high school graduation rate in the country, she's having some difficulty finding someone with whom she feels intellectually compatible. "I'm 29, and it's time to take my romantic relationships as seriously as my education. Men around here who reach my level of education are already married."
Jones is not alone. InterracialDating.com's informal survey of 1,000 singles revealed that an overwhelming majority--70 percent--said they would move to another state in hopes of better love prospects. Niki Bridges has a master's degree in non-profit management, and fully favors moving for more romantic prospects. "As long as I liked the new city and it had plenty of prospects [career and romantically], why not?"
However, experts warn singles not to move for the sole purpose of finding love. "If you move and don't find a mate, you can become bitter and resentful. You're not likely to find love anyway if you don't have other sources of fulfilment in your life which allows you to thrive. It's really risky business. Also, singles need to make sure they have good work prospects especially in this economy," says Dr. Linda Young, a psychologist and relationship coach based in The Woodlands, TX.
Perhaps the best hybrid is to move for love and viable employment options. That's what InterracialDating.com subscribers, Rich and Lori did when they realized that the passion garnered from their long-distance romance was too hard to quench with her living in Washington, D.C. and Rich living in California, so Lori packed up and moved to the state that's famous for (almost never) raining. "We just vibe perfectly together," Rich says. "She makes me want to be a better man." The couple is now married and recently welcomed their first child.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
