kray814 said: Why do you think Democrats and Liberals have been able to convince women and others that there is a "War on Women"?

deadpresidents:

Because if there isn’t a war on women, there is a concerted effort to dismiss the independence of women by challenging their ability to make choices about their own lives and health, there is a blatant ignorance of what women’s rights truly means and the daily threats women face just by leaving their homes, there is widespread income inequality in the professional world between men and women, there are several hundred years of judicial decisions that ignore their effect on women, and a disturbing lack of understanding of the fact that just because men and women are different sexes doesn’t mean they are different species, and that human rights apply to all humans. Yes, all humans.

For those of you involved in Children’s Services… especially if you’ve been involved over a period of say… at least three years… I wanted to start a discussion about how children have changed, more specifically their attention spans. I’m finding it harder and harder to gain their attention for stories. The second you sing, dance, puppet, move around, play the guitar, etc., they’re engaged, but books aren’t grabbing them the way they used to, it seems. Just curious to know if anyone else is having this experience or has made this observation. 

From a post on ALA Think Tank’s FB page (I tried to find the link—it’s only a few week’s old—but holy shit people post a ton in that group.)

Ah yes, the old “kids these days” game. Adults have been playing that game since time immemorial. In addition to blaming kids, the comments in the post also blame the parents and, of course, society. Do you know who they don’t blame? It shouldn’t be hard to guess if one understands the extreme ressentiment of librarians. That’s right: themselves! Not a single person had the guts to say: “If children don’t like the books we read, maybe it’s because we’re shitty storytellers.” But, hey, that would require some seriously incisive self-knowledge. Much easier to avoid the hard work of changing ourselves by blaming something that lies outside our area of control.

By the way, the only other correct response to such an inane post would be this: Because we ignore those “passionate things” (see Sendak quote in sidebar) in favor of cultural things and educational things, it’s no wonder kids are bored out of their gourds with the books we read to them. We would be bored too, if our favorite artforms were designed merely to teach or reflect ourselves back at us.

I’m confused,could someone please explain what the letters stand for?

Those letters all stand for something and pretty much sums up a whole personality, to put it in simple terms. You can read profiles about the different types here, and you can take the test here^^

Teams at the treatment center at Donka hospital, in Conakry, Guinea, work through the night and 24/7. Since the outbreak in West Africa began in March, MSF has treated 470 patients—215 of them confirmed cases—in specialized treatment centers in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The scale of this Ebola epidemic is unprecedented in terms of geographical distribution and the numbers of cases and deaths. There have been 528 cases and 337 deaths since the epidemic began, according to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) figures.

It’s time to change our perceptions of poverty in the UK. Thanks to the ongoing unfairness of austerity Britain, millions of ‘ordinary’ people are finding themselves on the breadline thanks to a system that increasingly skewed in favour of the rich.Share if you think something should be done about it.
