I am trying to figure out how to live-stream an event in a couple of weeks.
Aha! Hangouts On Air! Easy!
So I tried to do a live feed test.
How in the name of all that's holy do I find the URL for an HOA that is private and to which I've allowed one individual access for a test?? I can't figure out how to give this person the address to see if the darned thing is working!
(For those unfamiliar with North American paper conventions, 8.5 x 11 inches is a standard size sheet of paper, analogous to and slightly smaller than an A4 sheet.)
This photo campaign showcasing the voices and experiences of black students at Harvard is also a great place to see examples of Things Not To Say To Black People... or to anyone, really.
(The following is the full text of the blog post.)
Here is something to try that may help you deal with situations that are less than ideal that I learned from my hostess this weekend in Fairbanks. She said her Lenten practice is to remind herself that she is in these places-- these sick rooms, these contentious meetings, the grocery store, the borough office, a yoga session, a classroom, a daycare, the senior center, the post office, the trail, the cab of a snow plow, the clinic, a police car,the library, the cafe, the grocery store or the gas station-- at this moment-- for a reason. She can do some good. Especially when it appears sort of hopeless, she says to herself: "It is good that I'm here." And then does her best to make that true.
It is also worth mentioning that "It is good that you are here" is an English translation of the traditional Tlingit (Southeast Alaskan) greeting yak'ei haat yigoode'e.
Does that makes sense?
Congratulations to Dallas Seavey, and good luck next year Aliy Zirkle!
The sense of loss is strikingly conveyed in the physical separation of the headland from the mainland, and the longing for the beloved dead in the visible but unreachable names carved into the side of the far rock face. The site itself is both tranquil and lonely in appearance, allowing the memorial to reflect the pain of loss as well as the peace that can be found in solitude and in the natural world.
In another powerful metaphor, the plants and soil removed from this site will in turn be taken to Oslo to form part of a memorial there, the literal injury done to the land in this place becoming the foundation for a place of peace and contemplation elsewhere.
It is well worth it not only to click through to the article for images of the proposed memorial, but also to read the statement from the artist (here: http://minnesteder.no/Jonas_Dahlberg_-_Entry.pdf), which describes his vision for this memorial as well as the temporary and permanent memorials to be constructed in Oslo.
Via , who added: I have pretty much arrived at the point that all Japanese music is worth listening to at this point, and go out of my way to catch acts when I can. The one thing it never is...is boring. Truth be told, I often get bored at many rock and pop concerts. Never when they are from Japan.
Pass this on to any metal-head friends you want to totally screw with.
The essential rule is this: when someone is communicating through an interpreter, your focus should be on the person who is communicating, not the person or people facilitating that communication.
These guidelines, by the way, are just as applicable to spoken-language interpretation.
The opinion piece below offers a summary of the events, an explanation of the response to the Wall Street Journal piece, and guidelines to help make sure interpreter-assisted interactions are both fruitful and respectful for all involved - guidelines that hold true whenever interpretation occurs, whether for the Deaf or the hearing.
So I had to pretend "Oh, I'm a ditz who can't handle a female voice when acting with a guy" rather than "I can't do Oscar Wilde flirty with you droning on boringly. SHUT UP."
The guy was cute and dynamic and luckily my intervention meant that he got to perform other scenes without her once everyone had them memorized. He was terrific in a scene with a couple other guys in "A View From the Bridge". We didn't need a translation, he was a good actor no matter what.
She was snippy at me the rest of the semester. Eh, whatevs.
Basically, I enjoy many things.
