melissaanelli:

I’m really proud of my friend Jack.

He made a video that serves not only as an official coming out notice, but one that will be useful to anyone confused about how harmful leaning into the existing binary gender system really is. 

I’m really new to my own understanding of all of this, and am dependent on thoughtful, eloquent, and patient people like Jack as I navigate the waters myself. For instance, we recently traveled to and from the annual thehpalliance retreat together, and even though I was (very honored to be) told by him privately months previous, even though I had rationally processed the change of pronouns and change of whole thought about who he is in relation to gender, it was the first time that enough people knew about it that we would be referring to him as “him” all weekend long. And MOST of the time, he was just Jack. We went running and I limped back inside complaining that Jack ran ahead of me on the uphill last portion because boys are stupid. I had a couple little flubs where I said “her,” but mostly, you know, I was on it. I was feeling proud. Super comfy. 

And then, struggling with our stuff out of Penn station and splitting at our subway divide, we hugged and I yelled an oft-repeated salutation of mine:

“Bye, lady!”

And we both slumped. But only for a moment before laughing, because he gets it. This is a process for everyone, and ingrained, automatic behaviors are hard to work out of, and if we all just try, and we all are a bit tolerant, everything will be okay.

Jack, you’re a badass. Congratulations.

I love this video a lot. If you have 12 minutes to watch any video…

moviecode:

In the movie “Ex Machina” (which is really great BTW) this code can briefly be seen:

   #BlueBook code decryption

   import sys
   def sieve(n):
       x = [1] * n
       x[1] = 0
       for i in range(2,n/2):
               j = 2 * i
               while j < n:
                       x[j]=0
                       j = j+i
       return x    def prime(n,x):
       i = 1
       j = 1
       while j <= n:
               if x[i] == 1:
                       j = j + 1
               i = i + 1
       return i - 1
   x=sieve(10000)
   code = [1206,301,384,5]
   key =[1,1,2,2,]    sys.stdout.write(“”.join(chr(i) for i in [73,83,66,78,32,61,32]))
   for i in range (0,4):
       sys.stdout.write(str(prime(code[i],x)-key[i]))    

print

Which when you run with python2.7 you get the following:

 ISBN = 9780199226559

Which is Embodiment and the inner life: Cognition and Consciousness in the Space of Possible Minds 

Pretty neat easter egg!

Brain Hacking Is Having Incredible Effects, and It’s Just Getting Started

With a jolt of electricity, you might be able to enter a flow state that allows you to learn a new skill twice as quickly, solve problems that have mystified you for hours, or even win a sharpshooting competition.

And this just scratches the surface in terms of what we might be able to do to improve cognition as our understanding of the brain improves. With an implanted chip, the possibilities might be close to limitless.

I heard about this on RadioLab a while back. Neat stuff!

Teri Solow - Sat, 2015-05-16 21:00
“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them. In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”

nickgoeshere:

Here’s an example of sexism in the media. It’s very subtle, but it’s insidious, and it’s everywhere.

Men’s washroom and women’s washroom, each with an ad in the mirror. Both ads are for the same car. However, the text is slightly changed - in the men’s, it tells you that you look a million bucks but would look even better in that car. In the women’s, it gives you concern that you’re having a bad hair day but that’d be okay if you had that car.

The men’s ad assumes you’re confident and powerful and tries to optimize that image. The women’s ad undermines your opinion of yourself and tells you how to fix it.

Seriously. That shit is fucked.
