"Inner city black kids all don’t read or write really well because they live in communities where there’s not a culture of educational attainment and they are encouraged to be lazy about school… and that’s why I want to become a teacher…. so I can inspire them."

sociolab:

Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes?  That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood.  Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.

A comment replying to my Ebola post, an idiot said this.. "Or America has the money and sanitation that Africa doesn’t have and that’s why the two Americans lived".... Below is a tiny collection of images of the Africa they refuse to show you..

I really am sorry that you have reached this far in life, brainwashed by your media believing that Africa looks like the image below.. I really do sympathize with you,

Stop making Africa the poster child…

Emily Blincoe: Color-coded photography

We’ve already featured talented Austin-based photographer Emily Blincoe a couple of times on iGNANT. Her output is amazingly creative and never fails to make us smile. Emily is probably best known for her color-coded arrangements.

For her latest works she collected color permutation of tomatoes, oranges, eggs, ice cream and leaves and sorted them into groups and gradients for each image

"We are made of memories and formed by experience. I keep wondering what kind of people we would be, and what kind of world this would be, if when bad things happened we could erase them, or somehow make them sweet."

Sue Halpern considers the implications of MIT’s research into “taking the sting out of bad memories by switching the bad ones with good ones.”

Indeed, “we” are the sum of our experiences and the memories of those experiences, good and bad. As Henry Miller elegantly put it in his meditation on the art of living:

The art of living is based on rhythm — on give and take, ebb and flow, light and dark, life and death. By acceptance of all aspects of life, good and bad, right and wrong, yours and mine, the static, defensive life, which is what most people are cursed with, is converted into a dance, ‘the dance of life’…

Also see neurologist Oliver Sacks on the complexities of memory.
