My mentor and former boss has some big mothafuckin' news:

The National Institutes of Health selected Portland State University for a $24 million grant, the largest in PSU history, designed to help grow the number of biomedical and health researchers who are Latino, Pacific Islander, Alaska native, African-American, Native American, low-income, raised in foster care or have a disability.

Here's Dr. Crespo and two of my mentees from this past summer, in the very, very odd building I go to school in:



HOW CUTE ARE THEY? SO CUTE.

The press release:

Needless to say, I am incredibly excited about this.

That's just stupid. What we're suppose to crucify people who are attracted to certain ethnic groups?

There's a episode of "Blackish" in where the Father was trying to get his kids to be more black, and not get white washed. I laughed at the whole episode. The whole idea is stupid. "White washing" lol.

You should read the article I reposed that from, so you understand the context in which it was posted. The link to the article is in the OP.

That first one. I need to repost that EVERYWHERE.

I see Saints Ronny & Richard are still on the job.   :lulz:

Never a day goes by without their good advice.

Or at least, advice of some kind.

Thread please. I think we could all use their advice in these crazy times.

I can start one, but there's no guarantee that I won't vanish on Monday when Week Five begins. MIDTERMS. :lol:

Please post this on FB so I can share the fuck out of it.

Seconded.

Unless you develop a taste for slower neighbors.

In any case, this is what a real survivalist looks like:



Odds are about 99.9% that you won't survive a year past a major collapse.

So you survive by making sure society doesn't collapse.  You don't do that by playing dress up with an assault rifle you most likely couldn't actually afford.  No, you do it by staying ahead of the curve.  Which means science and organization, no matter how much that chaps someone's "rugged individualist" ass.

You notice that the same freaks running around with high-priced toys are ALSO the freaks whining about taxes, etc?  They think a post-collapse world means not paying the bills.  They're right.  Bleached bones don't care about credit scores.

Fiona Apple and Johnny Cash singing Bridge Over Troubled Water? Holy shit!

Wow, that led me down a Youtube rabbithole. Somehow Fiona Apple manages to make this song even more disturbingly about obsession and jealousy than it was already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAJ2HK2Epqs

Weren't me! Honest!

As pathos goes, that poem is not bad. Not "Please don't let me be misunderstood" material, but decent.

I fucking love that song. And Nina.

Same here :)

Unpopular personal preferences: I like the Santa Esmerelda cover used in Kill Bill more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYJJC2wYTLo

I like that one, but I'll always have a soft spot for Elvis Costello's rendition. Also, check out the rad 80's video.

Gratuitous link just because you should listen to this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gn9A-kdsRo

While this isn't entirely reflective of my experience, it does capture some elements.

I had a very interesting encounter today. I was sitting in the Malcolm X Lounge, a study room at the University of Texas that’s dedicated to African-American studies, but open to anyone. I was on a couch and had my feet up on a small table. When a girl came and sat down on the couch to my left, I jokingly made a big deal about moving my legs. She responded with, “Stop being so lazy, light-skin.”

I really wasn’t offended by the light-skin reference, but I was totally caught off guard by the way she used the term. See light-skinnededness (no that’s not a real word) has been the target of black humor for a while now, but usually people just say...
