comment Transitioning from pure research to a teaching position
You might also be able to teach at your current institution in the summer, when it can be harder to find teachers.

comment Is it legal and ethical to post my notes of a conference I am attending on my website?
Mathematics has a someone quirky but strong cultural distinction between informal and formal. Formal things are expected to be totally correct and proven and it's embarrassing if they're wrong. The act of putting something in writing is often seen as moving it from informal to formal, and hence has the potential to be embarrassing to the speaker. That is the key issue isn't public/private but formal/informal.

Also, loading and unloading in quick succession will probably get PayPal to shut down your account.

comment My first authorship is being turned into co-first authorship, what can I do?
If the contribution section says something incorrect, you ought to be able to at least get that part changed to something more accurate. (Especially if you're willing to compromise on the authorship point.)

comment Is it worth self-funding a PhD to attend a top 10 university?
@TheAlmightyBob: I'm not sure if it's 27K, 30K or 36K a year, and whether the expected length is 3,4, or 5 years, but at a bare minimum that's 81K+6K=87K and if any of those numbers aren't the minimum it's over 100K.

This is less clear, so I haven't put it in the answer. But I think it's unethical for school B to not fund their Ph.D. students, and you shouldn't encourage their behavior by going there.

Be very sure you know everything in the bag. Singapore is very thorough about checking bags and punishments for some contraband is very very harsh.
