Yesterday, the news invaded my classroom. I think the kids aren't paying attention. I think the kids only care about the news as it relates to Justin Bieber. I think they aren't listening or capabl......

Not that the were wolf is a totally fictitious entity either --- but recessive phenotypes can be changed through surgery (even if it shouldn't be necessary), while vilifying a belief system-- or scape-goating it-- can end up with all of us accused, with no way to prove innocence.

Some stunning high-speed photographs of waves.  They're all worth clicking through; my favorite may be number 7 in the "multiwave" series.

The genome sequence of the HeLa cell line was just published without anyone even asking the family for their consent.

I'm honestly really surprised that Henrietta Lacks' descendants continue to get fucked over this way, after the book came out. In my circles, everyone read it or at least heard about it. You'd think we would have made /some/ progress on research ethics by now. AAAARGH.

Many readers counter the previous ones who opposed civil polygamy: I find that the issue of polyamory suffers from being brought up almost exclusively in the context of the same-sex marriage debate. This makes it easy to dismiss, since no matter what your stance on polyamory, it is obviously a separate issue from same-sex relationships and must be considered on its own merits. I find myself unsure of my position. I’m deeply leery of the idea of g...

"""
Last week, the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee of the 
House Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Representative Tim Murphy (R-PA), convened a forum with parents, doctors, and service providers to discuss reforming mental health law and policy for people with severe mental illness after the Newtown tragedy. Noticeably absent from the conversation: people like me, people living with a mental illness.

When Representative Murphy appeared on CSPAN I called the show to find out why people with mental illness were not invited to testify. His response: “I am not going to bring a convicted felon out of prison to talk […] I am not going to do that here that is a dangerous situation”.

e. e. cumming's solstice poem

i thank You God for most this amazing day:
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;
this is the birth day of life and love and wings:
and of the gay great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing
seeing breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
