Academia is full of people who say that the current system sucks and then they get into positions of power and prove it.

Would it be too much to ask for graduate schools to just put their #*@! mailing address on the webpage where you upload your letter of recommendation? Or can we stop pretending that these letters are ever mailed?

162 years ago today Darwin's 'On the Origin of Species' was 1st offered for sale in London.
Nothing has ever been the same.
People were ticked when they learned that the earth wasn’t the center of the universe, but Darwin's ideas were more dangerous. & powerful. & beautiful.

Anyone know why fancy-pants journals put the methods last? Is it because busy important people don't have time for them?

When you can’t travel to @COP26@twitter.com - or you don’t want to (because of the massive carbon footprint associated with travel), then why not remote in. & when doing that, send a proper message. A Minister in Tuvalu, Simon Kofe today recorded a video statement for  doing just that

There is little to no regard for mental health issues in grad school & academia. People like to act as if they are caring & supportive but ultimately, if you aren’t producing work for them then you are a burden. It’s performative because appearing to care is the PC.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity....
What rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches toward DC to be born?

Good morning!

To me, this Austronesian joke never gets old 😂

Malay vs Filipino

The Filipino "pagi" (stingray) is cognate with the Malay "pari"

The Filipino "salamat" & the Malay "selamat" are cognate derived from the Arabic "salam" (= peace), but then evolved differently
