Anne-Marie Slaughter, former Dean of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson Center and Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. State Department, writes about her decision to leave the State Department to spend more time with her family and why the current culture makes it improbable to balance a career and family.  Slaughter's article is long, but worth the read.

Thanks for sharing this one.  I've got lots of thoughts percolating in my brain after reading this.

It was a deeply flawed experiment, that has been largely debunked. Doesn't seem to stop it from being in every psych 101 text, sadly.

What really kills me, is how once again It was the little people who got tucked and went to jail, while the people (CIA) that set that whole thing up in the first place skated. Villify her all you want, she wasn't acting on her own initiative.

Two weeks ago Republic High School in Missouri banned Kurt Vonnegut's 1969 novel, Slaughterhouse-Five. Vonnegut's Memorial Library has responded by offering free copies to any of the 150 students who were originally meant to read the book in class. If you can spare the cost of Slaughterhouse-Five ($7.99 on Amazon), and disagree with the banning of an American classic, please consider donating to the Vonnegut Library by clicking on the big blue text that says "online donation" below.

What's next? Banning a classic like Huck Finn? Or Too Kill a Mockingbird? Or Catcher in the Rye? Or Of Mice and Men? Or...oh, whatever. Just go donate. And if you'd re-share this, that'd be awesome.
Contact Us. The Emelie Building 340 N. Senate Avenue Indianapolis, IN 46204 info@vonnegutlibrary.org Open Daily except Wednesdays Hours: 12-5pm. For media inquiries, please contact Terry Burns at 317....

I donated a couple of days ago... I got an email back from the Executive Director of the library thanking me almost instantly. If you can give, they need all the help they can get fighting people too closed minded to think about the implications of the words, rather than the actual words themselves.

Today the ACLU filed a lawsuit to help gather information on the ongoing travesty in Iraq regarding the subcontracting of TNCs . The situation is just terrible; my ancestors who colonized America through indentured servitude would be proud of this blatant use of entrapment. Good for the ACLU for pursuing this, and good for the New Yorker for blasting this story to the world. The whole situation makes me angry. We should have learned these lessons from our experiences contracting in Bosnia. Trafficking women in Bosnia was bad. Trafficking women in Iraq is bad. This isn't a hard lesson; it pains me that we cannot seem to learn it.
Today, we filed a lawsuit to enforce an earlier Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request aimed at tackling the underreported problem of trafficking and abusive treatment of foreign workers on U.S. mi...

I can't imagine driving through the city and not seeing the Yahoo billboard. Sad day.

Pretty sad, good article. Why is it coming down though? Yahoo tired of paying for the space?

In a recent article published in Foreign Policy, the Washington director of the Human Rights Watch, the executive director of the Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict, and the director of the director of national security and joint warfare at the U.S. Marine Corps War College explain how the long process of reconciliation and reform will unfold in Harry Potter now that the war is over and Voldemort is dead.

As long as it was a hobby and not a government sponsored thing, then that's just awesome. I stand corrected. :-)

In positive news, the political science job market looks stronger next year than it has in a while. Of personal interest to my job search, and only cursorily mentioned in this article, is the drastic difference in academic placement between women and men; "Smaller percentages reported not being placed at all, and the figures were notably different for men (6.1 percent not placed) and women (14.2 percent not placed)."

A significant part of me wishes that I had actually gotten that minor in Pol Sci... not that it would have ever helped with jobs... but just to have it.

In January 2012, the future cyber punk predicted arrives: "By January 2012, the State Department will do something it’s never done before: command a mercenary army the size of a heavy combat brigade. That’s the plan to provide security for its diplomats in Iraq once the U.S. military withdraws."
