Quickies: Comet water, schools’ discipline of girls, and the Women’s Leadership Project

  • Rosetta finds water on comet 67p like nothing on Earth – “Measurements from Rosetta’s Rosina instrument found that water on comet 67P /Churyumov-Gerasimenko contains about three times more deuterium – a heavy form of hydrogen – than water on Earth.” From Sarah.
  • Schools’ discipline for girls varies by race and hue – “Data from the Office for Civil Rights at the United States Department of Education show that from 2011 to 2012, black girls in public elementary and secondary schools nationwide were suspended at a rate of 12 percent, compared with a rate of just 2 percent for white girls, and more than girls of any other race or ethnicity.” From Ray.
  • Help support the Women’s Leadership Project – Founded by Sikivu Hutchinson, they need your help and all it takes is a few sentences.
  • Process – A comic about how mental monitoring eats up a lot of brain cycles.
  • Cute Animal Friday! The Star Wars trailer remade with really cute animals (from Criticaldragon1177). And though I’m arachnaphobic, I kind of want to make an adorable felted peacock spider.
