How to Talk with a Conspiracy Theorist: What the Experts Recommend

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpInOs1Fyno Why do people pledge allegiance to views that seem fundamentally hostile to reality? Maybe believers in shadowy, evil forces and secret cabals fall prey to motivated reasoning. Truth for them is what they need to believe in order to get what they want. Their certainty in the justness of a cause can feel as comforting as a warm blanket on a winter’s night. But conspiracy theories go farther than private delusions of grandeur. They have spilled i...

When Martin Scorsese Directed Michael Jackson in the 18-Minute “Bad” Music Video & Paid Cinematic Tribute to West Side Story (1986)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd4SJVsTulc In 1983, Michael Jackson’s Thriller was the biggest album in the world, and he was the biggest pop star. And then he was expected to top it. But could he? The mounting pressures of fame and money, his falling out with his family over the Jacksons tour, and his perfectionist status as a musician meant the follow-up album kept being pushed back further and further. He became more reclusive and strange-looking, and went from being a sex symbol to ...

University of St. Andrews in Scotland – Undergrad Degrees for Americans

What sorts of degrees are offered at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland? For example, can I get a BA degree in German? And why would an American want to study in Scotland, anyway? These are among the questions I get all the time as a college consultant in the United States who specializes in helping Americans students apply to universities abroad for their undergraduate degrees.  Let’s start with the first question. Can I get a BA degree at the University of St. Andrews...

Essential work, layoffs and a cancer diagnosis: LA families juggle remote school with COVID-19

In the northeast San Fernando Valley, three families are keeping in close touch with one kindergarten teacher as they navigate lives upended by the coronavirus pandemic. They are drug store workers, a hospital receptionist, a laid off mechanic and a landscaper. With schools shuttered for a month, they are juggling kids with schoolwork to do at home alongside sometimes grueling work schedules of their own and, in one case, a cancer diagnosis. Their circumstances typify that of many families in Lo...

Electronic Musician Shows How He Uses His Prosthetic Arm to Control a Music Synthesizer with His Thoughts

The techno-futurist prophets of the late 20th century, from J.G. Ballard to William Gibson to Donna Haraway, were right, it turns out, about the intimate physical unions we would form with our machines. Haraway, professor emeritus of the History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, proclaimed herself a cyborg back in 1985. Whether readers took her ideas as metaphor or proleptic social and scientific fact hardly matters in hindsight. Her voice...

A few things you might not know about Mister Rogers’ legendary TV career

Body of work Fred Rogers began working in television in the early 1950s. He had his first 15-minute television program in Canada from 1963-67.

Are Stand-Up Comedians Our Modern Day Philosophers? Pretty Much Pop #17 Considers

http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/partiallyexaminedlife/PMP_017_10-11-19.mp3 In an age where the average person can't name a living academic philosopher, it's been claimed that the social role of an individual orating to the masses and getting them to think about fundamental questions is actually not performed by academics at all, and certainly not by politicians and religious figures who need to keep on message in one way or other, but by stand-up comedians. This is...

How the Sears Catalog Disrupted the Jim Crow South and Helped Give Birth to the Delta Blues & Rock and Roll

For all of the justified ire directed at certain online retailers for their anti-competitive practices, tax evasion, labor exploitation, and so on, one fact often goes unremarked upon since it seems to fall outside the usual narratives. The explosion of online retail gave purchasing power to people locked out of certain markets because of income or geography or disability, etc. Moreover, it gave people outside of traditional market demographics the opportunity to experiment with new interests i...

Time for a refresh: Meet the new Google Classroom

In 2014, a team of Googlers, including several former teachers, began spending time with educators. We learned that teachers loved using G Suite’s collaborative tools with their students, but found that some of the features were complicated to use. From the very beginning, Google Classroom focused on simplifying tech, so that teachers and students could spend time on learning. Today, we’re continuing that mission and announcing the biggest refresh to Classroom since its launch. A better way ...

Eminent Philosophers Name the 43 Most Important Philosophy Books Written Between 1950-2000: Wittgenstein, Foucault, Rawls & More

Image by Austrian National Library, via Wikimedia Commons Faced with the question, “who are the most important philosophers of the 20th century?,” I might find myself compelled to ask in turn, “in respect to what?” Ethics? Political philosophy? Philosophy of language, mind, science, religion, race, gender, sexuality? Phenomenology, Feminism, Critical theory? The domains of philosophy have so multiplied (and some might say siloed), that a number of prominent authors, including eminent philosophy...

The representation of fathers in children’s fiction

There aren’t many areas in literature where men are under-represented, but it’s safe to say that in children’s fiction, men – and fathers in particular – have been largely overlooked. And deliberately so. Adult carers with a sense of responsibility have been ousted from the action because of their exasperating tendency to step in and take control. Children’s authors don’t want competent adults interfering and solving problems all over the place. Heavens! When it comes to annoying plot-stoppers t...

The crappiest part of having a non-verbal child

by Whitney Barthel posted in Mom Stories I hate it when people are shocked to learn that Daniel is 6 years old. I hate it that I have to speak for him when strangers ask him questions like “Oh, what’s your name?” I hate it that he can’t whisper what he wants into Santa’s ear...

Partying Around the U.S.: A New Year's Eve Party for Every State!

Let's all celebrate this year finally being over!I honestly don't even want to talk about 2016 anymore. I suppose I should be giving it props for determination, because every time I think it can't get any worse, it comes back and surprises me. Therefore, New Year's Eve is going to be twice as exciting as usual - not only do we have an excuse to wear glitter and party till midnight, we also get to celebrate the fact that this disastrous year has finally come to an end! In case you don't have plan...

A Famous Rabbi’s Advice for Getting Important Things Done

Kalonymous Kalman Shapira was an influential Polish Rabbi murdered by the Nazis in the Trawniki concentration camp. Before the war, Rabbi Shapira published a respected book on learning titled Chovas haTalmidim, which roughly translates to The Student’s Obligation. A reader (and religious studies graduate student) named Daniel recently pointed my attention to the following excerpt from this book: “[N]o amount of resolve will help a person unless he learns to budget his time and utilize it for acc...

Apple's new iPhone software suggests a "nerd" emoji when you type "professor."

"Professor" prompts this:"When she saw the nerd-face emoji, [Pauline J. Reynolds, an associate professor of leadership and counseling,] said she instantly thought of the Jerry Lewis character in the 1963 comedy The Nutty Professor."Hey, by the way, did you know that Jerry Lewis is now 90 and he's got a new movie?[H]e still has a resentful grind to his lower jaw, and that monkeyish mouth is as busy, in “Max Rose,” as it was in “The Nutty Professor” (1963), when, in the guise of Buddy Love, the sl...

Secret Teacher: parents, your 'treats' ruined our school trip

I can’t imagine many parents at home would load up their child with gadgets and sweets to take to bed. So why do it to us?More from the Secret TeacherI suffered a sense of humour failure at 3.15am on day four of our recent residential trip. I expect to be up at all hours when taking 60 primary school children on a week-long outing – especially when many of them haven’t left home before. I expect to be sleep-deprived, in loco-parentis 24/7, dealing with everything from homesickness and travel sic...

Handwritten Versus Typed Note-taking

Laptop computers make note-taking convenient and efficient, but can they also be a hindrance to students? A recent study found that students who took notes with paper and pen outperformed their classmates who used laptop computers to take notes on the same material, suggesting that teachers and lecturers should encourage their students to turn off their electronic portable devices and jot down notes the old fashioned way. While some students equipped with a pen or pencil may like to doodle on...
