Let’s see… I think we talked a lot this week. What all did we discuss… c’mon gchat, don’t fail me now…
What happens when a woman announces she isn’t reading white authors for a year. The answer may not surprise you.
60% of women in tech say they’ve been sexually harassed, and other depressing facts. Fun times.
#2 argues that this article isn’t worth posting because who cares about Hollywood. [I didn’t say it wasn’t worth posting; I said that I *personally* don’t care about Hollywood.] But I say that Hollywood is the patriarchy on steroids and Hollywood magnifies what happens to women in the rest of the world. Other women go through the same thing, but with Hollywood, it’s more visible and obvious. The article is about how Hollywood is illustrating the patriarchy, whether or not you care about JLaw. One can care about Planned Parenthood AND about how women are not allowed to get ahead without being pulled down. (Also, seriously Oscar’s, what’s up with the 100% white nomination schedule? Again. And Huffpo, was there really only one actress of color in Hollywood able to be nominated in your article suggesting potential nominees of color?)
I stand with Linda Sue Beck.
Another article about women and weightloss.
When to be shallow.
How common are 401 K loans?
This financial advice for new faculty seems reasonable.
Go over and say hi to No Trust Fund!
Time starved skilled workers may be driving gentrification (Mr. Money Moustache in action)
Makes it hard for other teams to argue that they’re moving to LA now.
#2 sent this obnoxious unsourced opinion article on msg, because I guess the fact that she doesn’t get msg headaches means they don’t exist (#1 HATES msg headaches, which are similar to pressure headaches for her). [I didn’t SAY that! I sent a link and that is all.] The whole “nocebo” thing the author is talking about is crap. In a randomized controlled trial, people who think they are msg sensitive are. So no, I’m not a hypochondriac, at least not when it comes to headaches.
Another article about a really sad marital/parental relationship. I really should just not read MIM. It’s so full of sad.
An interesting word and a story about nudity.
Sister Notorious’s Home for Wayward Medievalists. As of this typing, you can still buy it!
Cute kitty pictures.
