Reason has moons, but moons not hers lie mirrored on the sea,
Confounding her astronomers, but oh delighting me.

The Myth of Working Your Way Through College

Once upon a time, a summer spent scooping ice cream could pay for a year of college. Today, the average student’s annual tuition is equivalent to 991 hours behind the counter.

Forced sterilization nurse: ‘I can see now that it was so wrong’ | Al Jazeera America
Thousands of people were forcibly sterilized after Virginia’s Eugenical Sterilization Act was passed in 1924. Three years later, the Supreme Court found the law legal and it stayed on the books until 1979. More than 7,000 people were sterilized under the law; more than 65,000 forced sterilizations were performed nationwide.

History of Culture Visualized through Art History, Physics, Complexity.

Quantifying and transforming the history of culture into visual representation isn’t easy. There are thousands of individual stories, across thousands of years, to consider, and some historical conditions are nearly impossible to measure.

Addressing this challenge, Dr. Maximilian Schich, associate professor of arts and technology at The University of Texas at Dallas, brought together a team of network and complexity scientists, including University of Miami physicist Chaoming Song, to create and quantify a big picture of European and North American cultural history.

Schich and his fellow researchers reconstructed the migration and mobility patterns of more than 150,000 notable individuals over a time span of two thousand years. By connecting the birth and death locations of each individual, and drawing and animating lines between the two locations, Schich and his team have made progress in our understanding of large-scale cultural dynamics.
