While having our first research meeting of the semester, I'm talking to my GA, and then my hand touches something goopy. Turns out to be parts of my breakfast that somehow ended up stuck to my shirt. Because I am the stereotypical absentminded professor, apparently...

And of course, since she knows me well, she just chuckled, and we moved on :)

I'm glad about Justice Brennan's argument here, but damn, the fact that those arguments had to be made makes me cringe...

I see complaints about pregnant teens in school sometimes - but after hearing stories from my mom about pregnant girls and women getting kicked out of high school and college, I'm incredibly grateful that this country no longer considers pregnancy a legal excuse to keep women uneducated.

Especially since only married women could get birth control...

I never intended to go to any high school reunion, but I currently live near where I went to school, so I am relatively easy to find. An organizer of the reunion came right to my house to personally deliver an invitation, and that was just one of the social pressures I felt to attend (there were also Facebook messages).

I didn't feel strong nostalgia and my closest friends were not the types to attend, so they wouldn't be there. But eventually I felt compelled to attend the latter half of the evening's festivities. I was glad I did because what I found was that after 30 years the only people who were attending were people who were both genuine and nice. And so that experience left me with a better feeling about high school than I had had before. YMMV.

Anyone know a show with a female character that's a goofy bully like Lightman in Lie To Me?

Beautiful.
 
Rachid Nekkaz, 38, a real-estate businessman based in Paris, traveled to Belgium on Wednesday to pay 100 euros for two women fined in the first case in the country since the law against head coverings was adopted there. He's set aside a million euro of his own money to pay the fines of women criminalized for wearing head and face coverings.

“I'm in favour of a law to convict a husband who forces a women to wear the niqab and who forces her to stay at home," Nekkaz said. "But I'm also for a law that lets these women move freely in the streets, because freedom of movement, just like any freedom, is the most fundamental thing in a democracy."

The same day, he paid a 75 euro fine for a woman in the north-eastern French town of Roubaix.

“I am calling for civil disobedience,” he told FRANCE 24. “I am telling women to not be afraid to go out wearing their veils. And by paying the fines, I am neutering the law, rendering it inefficient and pointless, showing that it doesn't work. It is a humiliation for the politicians.”

This is ally work, right here. 👌👌👌
Rachid Nekkaz has set up a million euro fund to pay fines for women who choose to wear the full Islamic veil in countries, like France, where it is against the law to do so in public. A French businessman has set up a fund to pay fines for women who wear Islamic veils or…

Yet another reason why MaxQDA is amazing: there's a free "reader" so you can share your work with people who don't own the software! Totally incredible.

Cattle die, kinsmen die.
You yourself also die.
I know one thing that never dies -
The judgement of each man's life.

- The Poetic Edda
