Dear world, a PSA for your benefit:

"College co-ed" is no longer an appropriate term for women. Surprising as it may be, women have been allowed to attend college for quite some time, and our representation is quite high. We are no longer a peculiar addition to higher education, and we don't need a special phrase that identifies us as such.

Kthxbai.

Oh yeah, +Karl Kosko, I've seen that too - I'm specifically referring to when it's used as a noun to mean a person. But yeah, my college dorms were co-ed, and that use is totally okay by me :)

It feels appropriate that in the references list of this article, I'm placing Montessori right next to Papert =D

Huh, interesting! Okay, you respondents, does your preference depend upon what you're doing?

I'm fairly certain that my advisor, who somehow I can't tag anymore, once told me that researching fractions and researching transfer were both super complex and thorny issues that I should try to avoid during my dissertation research. Somehow, though, I've found myself writing about transfer of fractions knowledge... ARGH

The mayoral candidate's rhetoric in S7 E15 of Criminal Minds is very Trump-like - all "take back our city" from "the browning of America" horrible-ness. Given that the candidate then gets someone to start killing to try to start a race war, I'm guessing that the writers never envisioned someone like Trump actually running for president...

Awesome list of near sci-fi - I know what I'm reading this summer!
 
The list of near-future science fiction books to read has grown, thanks to suggestions from people.
There is also a tentative tally of leading titles:

I have two cats, one of which is prone to overheat in the summer. Emergency vet bills are expensive, far more so than the electric bill if I leave the AC on. 80 degrees is the tipping point for me when I have to go to work, since Chicago weather is not known to play by the rules.

In my head, Brousseau's theory of didactical situations, +Amy Ellis's generalizing actions, and Salen & Zimmerman's game design principles fit together perfectly. The problem is getting it out of my head and onto paper... ARGH

Octavia Butler wrote about a zealot who promised to “Make America great again.” Sound familiar?

Have you ever lived in a place where your bedsheets or coverlid matched the wallpaper?
