the nomadic chronicles of little bear

“If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.”

—   

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

INTELLECTUAL BADASS: CECILIA PAYNE
Think of a famous scientist. If you’re anything like anyone, the chances are that they will be male. This is largely because of the general historical trend of humans being sexist clowns.
Cecilia Payne is perhaps the ultimate example of this. Initially a student at Cambridge and the life of parties at Newnham College, she moved to the United States to pursue astronomy. Her 1925 Ph.D thesis demonstrated that stars, including the sun, are made primarily of hydrogen. For challenging accepted assumptions (that the sun was composed mainly of iron, for example) her colleagues declared her wrong and did their best to block her career. The evidence, however, is somewhat less sexist, and she was proven to be correct. After wading through decades of institutional injustice, she eventually became the first female promoted to full professor within the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the first woman to become the head of a department at Harvard.
Formidably witty yet unassuming, the chain-smoking Payne was also quite a linguist, familiar with Latin, Greek, German, French, Italian, and even Icelandic(!). She makes the average modern liberal arts student’s ability to watch French surrealist film without subtitles seem somewhat half-baked. She even starred in a satirical play about the Harvard Observatory.
Despite the fact that she discovered what the observable universe is made of, almost nobody knows her name. Appreciate the fact that, because of intellectual badasses like Cecilia Payne, when we look up at the sun or the night sky, we can understand what we are seeing.

“Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.” — Jeremy Knowles on Cecilia Payne

so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.

anti-choicers are incredible
