1. First…. Many Indigenous Nations have calendars which have
    been counting the years for a very long time. I am aware that
    the calendar of the Mohawk Indian Nation has been counting
    the winters for over 33,120 years. This pre-dates the so-called
    ‘land-bridge’ of the Bering Strait theory, unless, of course, the
    Bering Strait scientists decide to move their interestingly illusive
    time period for “early migration” of Indians back to 40,000 years!
    Many American Indian early histories tell of events that took
    place on this Turtle continent (North America) long before any
    so-called ice age. But, for political reasons, these histories
    have been mostly ignored. You see, the Bering Strait, in truth,
    is a theory that was born of the politics and propaganda of
    early America. In the midst of the American ‘Manifest Destiny’
    social climate, the Bering Strait theory provided a ‘scientific’
    means to justify the taking of ancestral Indian lands. In short,
    the mythical theory eased the conscience, as it was a way for
    land hungry immigrants to believe that, because Indian people
    were only ‘recent inhabitants’ of this land , it was not really their
    ‘homeland’. Therefore Indians were, in their minds, not any more
    the ‘original people’ of this land than they were. This was, and
    still is, the political power of the infamous ‘Bering Strait theory’.

    The B.S. (Bering Strait) Myth
    By John Two-Hawks

    The Bering Strait Theory was made to make colonialism seem less like exploitation.

    Wow, definitely did not know this but definitely makes all of the sense in the world.  One thing I try to teach my students is that every piece of information was created by someone.  Whether it is numbers, words, or pictures they are all susceptible to the filters of people.  That, in conjunction with the our culture of racism (to say the least) means we must question everything.

Well, I never thought I would see someone try to recreate what people wore in the concentration camps in WWII and why they would try to make it trendy is beyond me. This is absolutely disgusting. I am sick to my stomach. As a Jew, this is incredibly offensive. Who the hell would ever think this is cute and fashionable? I used to like Zara, but after this I am never shopping there again. Fuck Zara this is utterly disgusting.

  3. urgh u r g h  u r g h  I am actually having so much trouble trying to rewrite this chapter. I know in my head what I basically want to happen - how I want it to deviate from the current version but for some reason the words aren’t coming out right.

Extra tips (course specific) for buying used textbooks, from what I’ve been seeing on Facebook. 
Mastering Physics Code: It seems like everybody and their mother are looking for this. BE WARNED: YOU CANNOT GET THIS CODE USED! Only one student can register for each Mastering Physics Code one time (although this student can use the code for multiple Physics classes for about 2 years before it expires). There are some people selling the code though for various reasons, such as they took Phys 100, bought the code and then took Phys 101, bought the package which came with the code and they didn’t need their second code. But before you agree to purchase somebody’s code, make sure it has NOT BE USED and is NOT SUPER OLD (if they’ve had the code for 5 years…just to be safe, I wouldn’t get it), otherwise the code is useless for you. Some people don’t know this, I have friends who try to sell their used codes without knowing that only one person can use it. 
Phys 101/Phys 102: If you’re planning on taking both courses, it’s probably going to be a better deal if you buy a copy of the textbook from someone selling the 5 volume set. Last year, the Physics department decided to be nice and help students save money, so they arranged to get only the parts from the Physics textbook (Physics for Scientists and Engineers 2E) needed for each course and put them together. So they pulled out the chapters from the original text and sold them as custom books for each course. Which is great because they included Mastering Physics too,sold it for only $100 and you don’t have to waste space and money on chapters you don’t need! However, if you buy each package separately, it’s gonna cost you about $200 and you’re gonna have to go through the hassle of trying to sell that unused Mastering Physics Code. A lot of people on Facebook are selling the 5 volume set (the original, full text) for about $70, if you buy Mastering Physics on it’s own, it’s $60. That would be $130 for both courses. 
Lab Manuals (Eg. Chem 121/123, Phys 101/102, Biol 140): Generally CANNOT be re-used. Although the material found in both old and new are relatively the same, you usually have to pull out pages to fill out and hand into your TAs. People will try to sell you the lab manual without those worksheets, but it’s useless if you don’t even have the sheets to hand in. 
CHIRP (CHEM 121): I LOVED my CHIRP, it was great. This is an amazing textbook/workbook combination where every single Chem 121 professor follows and teaches you how to do the questions in the book. There’s also pages for you to jot down your own notes. Because of the extent of personalization this textbook/workbook allows, many students end up writing in this a lot and doing the questions right in the book. This is the only textbook I’ve ever written in and I found it helped a lot during lectures in terms of helping me better understand the material. I would suggest you buy this textbook brand new, unless the seller is selling one with no writing at all. The 2012 edition is the newest edition for this fall, if you’re looking for a used edition, it will be either 2009, 2010 or 2011. 
English Novels (Engl 110/111): Check your libraries first before purchasing these books! Professors usually assign popular books for this class and these books can be found anywhere! The public library is the best as you can take a book out for 4 weeks and keep renewing it if nobody is requesting it. If your professors gives you a reading schedule, you can follow it and not have to keep the novels for more than 4 weeks! I saved over $100 doing this when I was taking English 110. 
Access Codes: Aside from Phys 101 and Chem 233 I have never used any of the access codes that come with those textbook packages that the Bookstore sells. Mastering Bio and Mastering Chemistry? Nobody uses that, so don’t be worried if you’re buying someone’s textbook and they don’t have it, it’s still probably gonna be cheaper to buy the textbook and the code separately if you do end up needing it. It’s just the publisher’s way of making money. I’m not too familiar with Econ 101/102 and Math 184/104/105, but I think they need the codes as well. If you’re unsure, email your professor! 
Remember the risk that you’re taking when you’re purchasing a used textbook from someone, be careful and ensure that it’s the textbook you need! Meet the seller in a public place and try to bring exact change. No refunds! Good luck!

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

    important things to remember

    • if someone doesn’t reply to your message they are probably busy, not ignoring you
    • just because someone doesn’t message you first, it doesn’t mean they don’t care about you
    • if someone seems upset or distant they probably aren’t upset at you in particular
    • lots of people love you and you’re not annoying
