comment What are basic techniques to cope with an extremely tough and totally unfamiliar university subject?
Is quantum physics just an example or the specific subject being asked about. I expect that someone with no background in science trying to jump right into a graduate course on quantum physics simple isn't going to be able to succeed. There is simply too much background material that will be critical to understanding the course that they don't know yet. I'd recommend lookup up the course prerequisites and becoming fluent in those first.

comment How does office temperature affect productivity?
In order for this answer to be more useful as a stand-alone resource, I'd suggest summarizing the interesting findings or conclusions from the link and/or some of the key papers that are cited. As it stands, this is just a redirect to a list of papers and doesn't really answer the question.

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about future proof software and making a personal database of information, but nothing about how such a system would aid productivity or how to be more productive in working inside a personal database system. It's an interesting question about future proof software, but off-topic for the site.

comment Do noise cancelling headphones block human speech and PA systems?
I think a link to a detailed discussion of how noise canceling headphones deal with ambient conversations work would be helpful as I've also read that some (Bose specifically IIRC) are specifically designed to not, or less significantly attenuate noise in the frequencies of typical human speech for safety and situational awareness reasons.
