Euprymna berryi is a species of bobtail squid, which are part of a group of cephalopods closely related to cuttlefish. Bobtail squid tend to have a rounder mantle than cuttlefish and have no cuttlebone. They have eight suckered arms and two tentacles and are generally quite small.
Bobtail squid have a symbiotic relationship with bioluminescent bacteria (Vibrio fischeri), which inhabit a special light organ in the squid’s mantle. The bacteria are fed a sugar and amino acid solution by the squid and in return hide the squid’s silhouette when viewed from below by matching the amount of light hitting the top of the mantle.
The latest in the gender pay gap in the US: “Women have to have a PhD to make as much as a man with a BA.” The recent report from Georgetown called “The College Payoff: Education, Occupations, Lifetime Earnings” presents findings that
- Women earn less at all degree levels. Compared to men, women who work full-time, year-round jobs earn roughly 25% less at equivalent levels of educational attainment. If we were to calculate in women who had to leave work to raise children or as the result of a disability into this comparison, the difference is even larger. By that expanded definition, women without high school degrees earn a ridiculous 90% less than their male counterparts. Those with BAs earn about 45% less.
- Let me just repeat that women have to get a PhD to earn the same as a man with a BA.
- Persons of color earn less at all degree levels. In fact, African Americans and Latinos who hold Masters degrees still earn less than Caucasians with BAs.
- Going to college makes a huge difference in income. On average, BAs make 84% more that those with just high school diplomas over their lifetime. There is even a stark difference among levels of educational attainment within the same occupation.
- No matter what post-secondary education you receive, you’re at a sizeable lifetime financial advantage.
