 Mild cases of the flu (?) are annoying, but I'm very thankful that it's my spring break.  This means I can shiver in peace with a library book, hot tea, and warm cat.

The job search is proceeding, but there are no positive results yet.  I applied for 5 more positions in the last 24 hours, so we can only hope that something will pan out.

As someone who has not yet had problems with being female while on the internet, I would like to point out the many, many people who have, or are the targets of constant harassment because of other reasons.  This is a terrific series of articles.

The main article

the first and second follow-up -- more are supposedly yet to come this week.

Edit: Part 3

 I did a research paper on genetically-modified (BT) corn in high school -- looking at benefits and risks.  Ever since, I've held a passing interest in the controversy over the issue, or rather the issue behind the controversy.  NPR's link to this article has finally pinpointed why the controversy bothers me so much: too many things are lumped together and discussed as one thing.  Why not take each genetically-modified crop as its own entity, and look carefully at the costs and benefits of each in a specific situation?  

Besides reading internet articles, these days I'm applying for jobs for next year, planning for this next semester, and writing letters of recommendations for my previous students.  The only advantage of being on "break" is additional opportunities to exercise.  Whoever said that professors only worked during the school day (and school year) hadn't met very many.

 This is an extremely interesting take on the current political and economic situation.  I haven't seen the Wire, though.

 I always wondered what London looked like before the Great Fire.  Check out this video!

 One of the best takedowns to date of over-categorization in the SF/F genre can be found here.
