Here's something exciting for all of my library friends:
Libraries have existed for millennia, but today many question their necessity. In an ever more digital and connected world, do we still need places of books in our towns, colleges, or schools? If libr...

Interesting. +Marite Oubrier, I think you will especially find this an interesting piece.

That is really interesting indeed. I guess that treating everybody equal was bound to benefit women who adopt a masculine approach, which is the default position since men have shaped things at the top for centuries. (millennia?)
The Brazilian approach leaves me somewhat confused because there is more to fairness to women than the top jobs. There is also equality in law and in access to education between men and women in poorer and less well educated backgrounds. I would love to know what is happening at that level.

Read the passage at the bottom (the first passage quoted is inaccurate). Once you're finished, go back and read the questions that actually appeared on the test. I have a son that just took this ridonkulous test and he has verified that this passage and the questions were actually on this year's NYS ELA exam. I am so angry that my head may explode! If you think this insanity needs to stop, post this on your site so parents can see what our kids are being subjected to under the whims of NYS and filthy, stinking rich testing companies. This insanity needs to stop NOW! The moral of this story is not that pineapples don't have sleeves. The story is an allegory. The USA is represented by the pineapple. The rest of the world is represented by the hare. The animal audience is the testing companies raking in big bucks while we sit quietly.
An odd story and two weird questions on the New York state English exam are causing laughter and consternation.

Thank you, Marite Oubrier, for the references. I am very familiar with this fable, too, and wince at this fracturing of it.

Brilliant!
 
This made me laugh. Ridicule is the best defence.

Lego: it's not just a kiddie toy anymore!
 
Just read this article about scientist in Cambridge, UK using Lego robots to help create artificial bone in the laboratory. Always amazed that we don't have more low cost automation tools in use and the best ones we have are actually toys!

Join a hangout with the scientists tomorrow at 8AM PT.

Researchers at Cambridge University are building artificial bone in the lab, and they're doing so with what might be considered an unorthodox partner: Lego. The tedious process of building up a sa...

There is room for all types in our world. Introverts are just as valuable as extroverts. Let's make it a place where everyone can be comfortable in their own skin and able to reach their potential in their own style.
 
The first TED talk is up from 2012!
Wall street lawyer turned author Susan Cain The Power of Introverts

This was one of my favorites. A really good talk. More and more of our schools and workplaces are arranged in pods. While team work is great, do you ever find yourself needing a little space to be productive? Anyone who is an introvert, or needs quiet time alone to think and reflect and be creative, will especially appreciate the perspectives shared in this talk.

Bad news: beware.
 
In a sneak attack, the vote on CISPA (America's far-reaching, invasive Internet surveillance bill) was pushed up by a day. The bill was hastily amended, making it much worse, then passed on a rushed vote. Techdirt's Leigh Beadon does a very good job of explaining what just happened to America: Previously, CISPA allowed the government to use information for "cybersecurity" or "national security" purposes. Those purposes have not been limited or r...

Pretty cool!
 
Check out It's Who I Am - the new LGBT magazine for queer youth. http://itswhoiam.org/ You can read it online for free or download a copy for $1.99. (http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/348170) It's packed full of articles, art, and more!

You can also read a detailed, thoughtful, indepth interview that Tina Toler Keel did with me, and see some of my art.

Absolutely unacceptable.
 
A 13-year-old girl is harassed and thrown out of school for an essay her teachers found offensive, because she dared to point out their negligence.
