Coloring Isn't Just For Kids. It Can Actually Help Adults Combat Stress.
"Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children. As we grow older, we put aside our crayons and colored pencils in favor of more respectable writing utensils like pens and highlighters. However, it turns out coloring can be beneficial for adults -- namely for its de-stressing power. The practice generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity. In fact, publishers have lately been launching coloring books specifically for adults. The trend is alive and well in countries in Europe and North America. Most recently, in Spain, the publication Espasa published Coloréitor, with illustrations by well-known cartoonist Forges. Does Coloring Really De-stress? One of the first psychologists to apply coloring as a relaxation technique was Carl G. Jüng in the early 20th century. He did this through mandalas: circular designs with concentric shapes similar to the Gothic churches’ rose windows. They have their origin in... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

McDonald's Has "No Budget" to Pay Artists at SXSW Showcase
"This isn't the first year SXSW has played host to a corporation you regularly see advertising during the Super Bowl. Last year, for example, there was a Doritos thing that featured Lady Gaga. However, Doritos paid Lady Gaga $2.5 million dollars for that thing. What of the future Lady Gagas (music industry compliment) McDonald's is courting to perform at their 2015 showcase? The $90 billion corporation, powered by poverty-stricken workers, does not—hmm, let's see, ahhh, maybe if we...ah nope, sorry—have a budget, unfortunately." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Of course, if you are a band, you are free to turn down such a showcase. Similarly, and less complicatedly, if you are McDonald's, you are free to fucking pay people. " - Jessie
Wow. That's pretty shameless! - Jenny H. from Android

Man shot sister with BB gun over phallic birthday cake, Holly Hill police say | News - Home - http://www.clickorlando.com/news...
"A Holly Hill man has been arrested after police say he shot his sister with a BB gun because she made him a phallic birthday cake. Christopher Taft, 21, has been charged with aggravated battery and battery in the Sunday incident. Police said Taft shot his sister in the buttocks with a BB gun in retaliation for his sister making him a birthday cake in the shape of a penis. Taft told police he thought it would be funny to shoot his sister with a BB gun as a joke and did not intend to hurt her, according to the report." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

No Boys Allowed: School visits as a woman writer
"Later a teacher told me, “The administration only gave permission to the middle school girls to leave class for your assembly. I have a boy student who is a huge fan of SPIRIT ANIMALS. I got special permission for him to come, but he was too embarrassed.” "Because the administration had already shown that they believed my presentation would only be for girls?" "Yes," she said. I tried not to explode in front of the children." - laura x from Bookmarklet
"I think most people reading this will agree that leaving the boys behind is wrong. And yet—when giving books to boys, how often do we offer ones that have girls as protagonists? (Princesses even!) And if we do, do we qualify it: “Even though it’s about a girl, I think you’ll like it.” Even though. We’re telling them subtly, if not explicitly, that books about girls aren’t for them.... more... - laura x
We're also telling boys that women are unimportant and boys don't have to listen to them. Which is effed up. - RepoRat
This happens way too often - Katy S
Yes, RR--the pullquote I put on FB but for some reason didn't here gets right to that: "The belief that boys won’t like books with female protagonists, that they will refuse to read them, the shaming that happens (from peers, parents, teachers, often right in front of me) when they do, the idea that girls should read about and understand boys but that boys don’t have to read about... more... - laura x
That's part of it, but not all IMO; letting the boys out of the auditorium also communicates that real-world women have 0 authority. - RepoRat
Yes. That too. - laura x
I hate hate hate hearing this same shit when campus common readings are chosen. 'But the guys might not like it." And the good girls will read what they're told. ARGHHH. - barbara fister
Huh. I think I'll give my campus some props, then: we did Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Radioactive and I Am Malala and if the boys woofed about it, tough crap. Feel free to use us as an example if it'll help. (The only protest we ever got, actually, was over Michael Pollan!) - RepoRat
Well, Pollan is kind of an arrogant jerk. I say that as someone who liked The Omnivore's Dilemma but has found him insufferable since. - laura x from iPhone
I have decided not to serve on our Reading in Common committee ever again or at least not unless there is 100% turnover and somebody I get along with runs it. (An ethnographer interested in the sociology of literacy would have a field day studying these committees - such fascinatingly opposite notions of what reading is for.) - barbara fister

Friend's kid wants me to donate to a charity because its her favorite actor's charity, there are two 'rent parties' going for online friends (one is truly rent and the other is for a honeymoon), fellow lampworker that I don't know is out of her house on the 15th with no where to go and looking for donations.

"First, Scheuermann began by controlling a robotic arm and accomplishing tasks such as feeding herself a bar of chocolate and giving high fives and thumbs ups. Then, researchers learned that -- surprisingly -- Scheuermann was able to control both right-hand and left-hand prosthetic arms with just the left motor cortex, which is typically responsible for controlling the right-hand side. After that, Scheuermann decided she was up for a new challenge, according to Prabhakar. - rønin from Bookmarklet

How my brain works: A friend posts about a missing Redbone hound named Anne. I think of 'Where the Red Fern Grows', followed by wild-crafting, followed by the character Kaiser Pease and a quick search for the name of the book he was in, 'Where the Lilies Bloom' ... and now I'm off to find a couple of books.
