"The headdress also protects the warrior from heavy injuries, since opponents who jump on the heads of laying warriors might crack it open otherwise. Not only the senses available during combat are limited, also the combatant’s agility is restricted by the ritual armor. Its colorful decoration and drawings of the particular totem indicate which village the warrior represents. Resembling old agricultural devices pushed into the ground, the armor shapes the body like an upside-down shovel, going wide at the necks level and sitting tight on the ankles, thus the ability to accelerate is not heavily influenced." -Finn Johansson

"...organizations, especially college’s, tend to “reproduce themselves” through their hiring practices…people hire people who they are comfortable with and who look like them…at my college this is called “a good fit.” This restricts opportunities for other academics and it limits (controls) who teaches our students."

Love this.
“Vitesse” - Guillaume Azoulay   

Arty-Fact: 
Guillaume Azoulay does not express his images as a filled-in outline, but rather, he achieves the subject form, the musculature, the expressions, the eyes, and the nose, by the subtle changes in the curvature of the line. His work is a flowing display of lines which are bent to portray the movement, the facial characteristics and even the colour.  

“Vitesse” is a great example of this technique.

What to do with the many new Latino students?  Will there be classes to serve them, and can they be integrated into campus life?  And where will they be housed?  This last question is the subject I want to address via some recently released statistics from the campus housing office.  You see, the answer is typically that they will be housed with the other students in the on-campus dormitories.   There are several kinds of dorms at Chico State.  There are the traditional dorms near the dining commons in the center of class (which are more expensive), and the cheaper dorms, which have kitchens and no dining services, and are located one mile away from campus.  One set of dorms is at the center of the action on-campus, and the other is a mile away, on the other side of the railroad tracks.  Guess where the newly recruited Latino students tend to end up?

What Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In did best was expose the tremendous class and race divide in feminism. I saw it when I was teaching at a community college, several working class women who said they weren’t feminists because they were stay-at-home moms. Or the woman who thought a two-year degree and dental hygienist career was just fine, thank you very much; she said that she couldn’t be a feminist because they were “into getting more education.” The mythology of feminism being man-hating, etc.is well-known but what I heard was something more nuanced, it seemed like feminism was perceived as something academic and thus, completely out of touch.
