Jeri Ellsworth has made a great video in which she explains magnetic hysteresis, and how magnetic properties can be used for magnetic storage and logic.
She fairly describes magnetic logic as a forgotten technology, but I wonder if people are looking at this again since for high end electronics since we now have not only magnetic recording media, but also magnetoresistive random-access memory.

According to Oxford University their graduate students in materials are the best paid in the whole University…. surely that means I should be getting paid more…
Oxford Leavers Graduate Wages
The Times Higher Education magazine (THE) magazine recently highlighted Oxford’s published data from the survey of Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education. From the 2009 and 2010 data comparing graduate salaries six months after leaving Oxford, the department is very pleased to see that Materials graduates have the highest average earnings.
