Apparently physical gestures expressing pride and shame have been shown to be likely innate and not learned, as they are generally the same in both sighted people and blind people who would have never seen the behaviors modeled.

Why Companies Aren't Getting the Employees They... →
Given description at the site: The conventional wisdom is that our education system is failing our economy. But our companies deserve a lot of the blame themselves. So many companies want people who have the exact qualifications needed for the job with no training, but they don’t want to pay extra for skilled people either. So they want somebody who will leave the same job somewhere else...

I’d never considered that before.
In short, I disagree, and I do not like your...
A discussion of this article on SRT-1720. Quotes that inspired this: ”’They’ve poisoned the mice with this high-fat diet that makes them very sick indeed, and with SRT-1720 they can reverse some portion of that illness,’ said Dr. Richard A. Miller, an expert on aging mice at the University of Michigan. Dr. Miller said the finding ‘looks like something people should pay a lot of...

先生、先生！雨ふっている！何で雨ふっている？ぜんぜん分からん！– just heard a 1st grader just shouted this at their teacher. Teacher, teacher! It’s raining! Why is it raining? I don’t understand at all! (via popcornjapanese) This is so adorable.

voxmente: microaggressions: In my computer class, work must be done using Word ‘07. I only have Word ‘03 at home, so I come early and stay late trying to get everything done. The teacher knows this and has had several conversations with me in front of the class regarding open lab times. When another student asks the teacher if the campus will be moving to Word ‘10 soon, she looks directly at...

Apparently perpetrators will admit to rape if you... →
Also very important to take away from the article: A stranger using violence is probably the LEAST likely rape scenario, but it’s the stereotype. Most rapes involve intoxicants, not violence, and in this study NONE of the rapists who targeted strangers used violence. All violent rapes were acquaintance rapes. The statistics quoted in this entry are staggering. Quoted from the article,...

microaggressions: At the large-chain retail store where I work, I’m straightening up the toddler department when I hear a little girl crying. I turn around and see her in the toddler boys section, reaching for a Batman t-shirt. Her parents repeatedly pull her away and tell her, “You can’t have that, that’s a boy’s shirt, you’re supposed to wear girls clothes. Girls aren’t supposed to like...

Steve Jobs has passed away →
Didn’t he make somebody else CEO of Apple recently? I thought that was a little odd but now it makes a lot more sense. The link to that article read “Long battle with cancer” so I think he could see it coming. Rest in Peace Mr. Jobs.

textsfrombritannia: After reflecting on my actions from last night, I do realize that I was in the wrong. I am under heavy stress from university, and I have never handled stress well. As a result, I lash out at anyone and everyone. This is still no excuse for my poor behaviour yesterday. I have apologized to the other party, and I hope they will forgive me. In the future, this will never...
