[reddit] Saved: Human brain uses standard code for entire spectrum of emotions - “We discovered that fine-grained patterns of neural activity within the orbitofrontal cortex, an area of the brain associated with emotional processing, act as a neural code which captures an individual’s subjective feeling,”

[reddit] Upvoted: TIL that in 2005, the DEA reported seizing $477 million worth of drugs, whereas the estimated value of drugs sold within and into the US is $64 billion dollars. This makes the efficiency rate of the DEA less than 1% at curtailing US drug trade.

First of all, English is not my first language and it has been a while since I actually had education in that area of physics so the following is what I udnerstand and is only partially correct.
As far as I understood, photons are the particles that "spread" the force in electromagentism, as electromagnetic waves.
I also know that electrons have electric charge and moving electrons cause a magnetic field. Does that not mean that electrons are also an "electromagnetic" particle? Following up, does the wave particle simultanity principle hold for electrons as it does for photons? Does that mean electrons are also "electromagnetic waves"?
Additionally, why do we call "light" or photons "electromagnetic waves"? Are all photons electromagnetic waves or does it depend on wavelength/energy or the source?
Thank you for any corrections and clarifications of my thoughts.

The original site and blog post (blog.programmersmotivation.com) is down, given all of us a 403 error. Until it's back online, you can use this post.
To the truly lazy who don't want to use the Google's cached link and prefer just the outline:
All the beginner project links:
3) Project Euler (476 practice problems). Word of Caution: the site had it's login features hacked and compromised - you needed it to check your answers, but now the site says that answer checking is back online. Proceed with Caution.
Just want ideas for projects?
The blog post's own recommended projects:
1) Build a calculator - go onto scientific for a harder challenge.
2) String Manipulation projects - so substrings, palindromes, comparison, splits etc.
3) Reminder App
4) Alarm App
5) Simulator games of your favorite sports
Added in /r/dailyprogrammer from the comments section. The original blog post didn't have this.
