I’m dying of laughter and disbelief inside. So I was doing a reading for my Supporting Literacy class when I came across the line…

"In this way, literacy is seen as complex and semiotically framed within a competency model of literacy acquisition."

Dying for the university cafeterias to open… I can only last on this Ensure crap for so long.

This may be the happiest I’ve ever been to write a post. Last year, as many of you probably remember, we held a crowdfunding campaign to help a family with adoption fees. The Watkins family had already adopted an eight year old daughter from Ethiopia. They were so happy with their new family, they decided to adopt a ten year old boy named Rabuma, who they had discovered in an orphanage. They knew that Rabuma was destined to be their new son, but were heartbroken because they didn’t have the money to bring him home yet. 4,000 of you donated to help make this family a reality. Over the past year, the Watkins have been sending me periodic updates, but I didn’t want to share them because I didn’t want to jeopardize the process. But everything just finalized. By a beautiful coincidence, the Watkins happened to pick up Rabuma while I was in Africa. So between destinations, I took a two hour detour to Ethiopia to photograph the occasion. It was such an honor for me to be present at the birth of this new family. The love that had already developed between them just filled the room.

Men’s rights activists don’t organize marches; they don’t build shelters or raise funds for abused men; they don’t organize prostate cancer-awareness events or campaign against prison rape. What they actually do, when they’re not simply carping in comments online, is target and harass women—from feminist writers and professors to activists—in an attempt to silence them.

In 1957, BBC’s Panorama produced a fake report of a family in Switzerland harvesting spaghetti from trees as an April Fool’s joke. As a result, hundreds of people called the station to ask how they could grow their own spaghetti trees. Source
