comment Is praising students' aptitude harmful?
Aptitude is only half of the story. One also needs to put in the effort. As children, girls are told that they are good at something because they are clever, whereas boys are told that they are good because they tried hard. So when a girl fails, she believes it is because she is not clever, whereas a when a boy fails, he believes it is because he did not try hard enough. The consequences are that many women do not even consider the sciences. [Citation required.]

comment diy online majors
This seems overly broad, and somewhat incomprehensible. Can you narrow it down to a field of interest, or are you just interested in anything? What do you mean by going 0-60? Have you heard of coursera.org?

comment What are reasonable alternatives to changing your name for academic publishing when you have a common surname?
I use "Dave Clarke" as my name. Not the best choice, but it hasn't been too problematic. That said, try to do what you can to make your name distinct enough. Use the full middle name (not just X). Perhaps add Pope or Sir or Captain to the front of your name, or add a second middle name.

comment Is there any way to only do research after getting a Ph.D.?
If you are exceptionally good, you could find a position in an industrial research lab or national research institute, if such things exist in your field.
