    Helpful COVID-19 Quickies and Cute Animal… Saturday?

    Hello again to another Friday… oops I mean Saturday! Having trouble keeping track of days? Well, we all are. My mostly-optional Zoom online class schedule is the only thing that’s really keeping me aware these days. Anyway, apologies for the lateness. First, I have just a few COVID-related stories that are good reads and not entirely anxiety inducing which would…

    Quickies: Some “stay at home” survival resources

    We’re in a whole new world… here in the US specifically in the last two weeks since my last post. One would think I’d have plenty of time to write now, right? Not so much… first off, taking your well-planned (or not) in-person course and making it remote is NOT trivial. Second, my anxiety brain is 100% in overdrive. Maybe you…

    Friday Quickies: COVID-19 Edition

    Hey, all! I feel like I’ve spent the last week in some kind of Twilight Zone here in the US with regards to all of the coronavirus news. Luckily, I have some friends with biology expertise who can help me navigate the ins-and-outs in a field where I do not have expertise. So, for today’s Quickies, I’d like to share…

    Happy Friday! It’s spring break for me, and I’ve spent a good deal of it recovering from the FIRST half of the spring semester and generally agonizing over the presidential primaries. Well, it’s time to move on and get things done, whether it be to finish grading or to just let my brain figure out what it wants to freak…

    It’s Friday, and I have science on the brain this week… I highly recommend this informational look at the coronavirus outbreak and the worldwide response from The Atlantic. Meanwhile, experts tell us not to panic, but to take common sense precautions, with the bonus that many of these practices will help stave off the cold and flu as well. I…

    Katherine Johnson, NASA mathematician, dies at 101 – Her NYT obituary opens with, “They asked Katherine Johnson for the moon, and she gave it to them.” Harvey Weinstein couldn’t reverse Me Too – “Before Me Too, the messiness of the facts in this case ordinarily would never see the inside of a courtroom; after all, prosecutors generally don’t bring cases…

    Quickies: School Choice = Segregation, Greyhound vs. ICE, and Constitutional Punishment for Voter Suppression

    School Vouchers Are Just Code for ‘Segregation Forever’, the Daily Beast: “Their advocates claim that vouchers and “school choice” constitute a civil right, a social justice issue. In fact, the call for “school choice” today echoes the language of Southern segregationists who called for “freedom of choice” to evade school desegregation. And today’s advocates employ many of the same arguments…
