Adjunct Positions, my garage gallery project, was included in LA Weekly's write up of new alternative art spaces in LA.  Lots of great art spaces in this collection.

This article is fascinating. For example,
- There is more hourly internet traffic now than annual traffic in 2000.
- 1 pound of coal's worth of energy needed to transmit 1 GB of data over the wireless network.

Our own copy of Corporate America! See if you can identify +Ian Pye on one of the cards (he might have a mustache...)

Most of you have no idea what Martin Luther King actually did.

On this day in America when we observe Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, I offer this memorial. It is probably very different from most of what you will read. Here's an excerpt:

At this point, I would like to remind everyone exactly what Martin Luther King did, and it wasn't that he "marched" or gave a great speech.

My father told me with a sort of cold fury, "Dr. King ended the terror of living in the south."

Please let this sink in and and take my word and the word of my late father on this.  If you are a white person who has always lived in the U.S. and never under a brutal dictatorship, you probably don't know what my father was talking about.  

But this is what the great Dr. Martin Luther King accomplished.  Not that he marched, nor that he gave speeches.

He ended the terror of living as a black person, especially in the south.

I'm guessing that most of you, especially those having come fresh from seeing "The Help," may not understand what this was all about.  But living in the south (and in parts of the mid west and in many ghettos of the north) was living under terrorism.  

It wasn't that black people had to use a separate drinking fountain or couldn't sit at lunch counters, or had to sit in the back of the bus.  

Please read it to the end. It is worth it.

Here's the full article: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/29/1011562/-Most-of-you-have-no-idea-what-Martin-Luther-King-actually-did#

From FaceBook:  A Mighty Girl's page:

Many people are familiar with the famous case of Rosalind Franklin, the British scientist who first discovered the helix shape of DNA by using her knowledge of x-ray diffraction techniques to take the first photo of DNA. Without her permission, fellow researcher Maurice Wilkins later showed her photo to James Watson and Francis Crick, who were also trying to determine the structure of DNA. Franklin's photo allowed them to deduce the structure and, shortly thereafter, they published a series of articles about the discovery, only mentioning Franklin's contributions in a footnote. While Watson, Crick and Wilkins received the Nobel Prize in 1962 for their contributions to science, Franklin had passed away due to cancer four years prior and was not eligible for the award.

While Franklin has become increasingly recognized for her immense contributions to molecular biology, even today, students everywhere learn the story of Watson and Crick's discovery but few are taught about the critical contributions of Rosalind Franklin to understanding the nature of DNA. Franklin's story remains one of the most famous and egregious examples of a female scientist being denied credit for her work due to sexism but, as this fascinating infographic illustrates, there are unfortunately many other examples from throughout history.

To learn more, National Geographic ran a profile piece, which included several of the women featured in this graphic, on "six female researchers who did groundbreaking work — and whose names are likely unfamiliar for one reason: because they are women" at http://bit.ly/1dzb22J  

Now, we can help these women's important contributions to science be known. If you'd like to introduce your children to the stories of remarkable female scientists, we feature many scientist biographies for both children and teens in our "Scientists" section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/history-biography/biography?cat=209  

For stories both real-life and fictional of girls and women confronting gender discrimination and prejudice, visit our "Gender Discrimination" section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/social-issues/prejudice-discrimination?cat=69  

If you want to encourage your own budding scientist, check out our blog post: “Ignite Her Curiosity: Toys for Sparking Your Mighty Girl’s Interest in Science” at http://www.amightygirl.com/blog/?p=2578  or visit our entire STEM toy collection at http://www.amightygirl.com/toys/toys-games/science-math  

Thanks to the Women Rock Science Tumblr page for sharing this wonderful image (http://womenrockscience.tumblr.com/

If you're looking for a room in Oakland, check this place out! They are great people to live with.
