blind print


☀️ A few days ago I came across a Daiya no Ace parody of the Free! ED Future Fish (link) with police officer Eijun and it exploded into a hundred little ideas. Then I also thought of Honto Yajuu and how cute a policeman/yakuza misawa AU would be. Thanks to people on twitter who bounced ideas with me!

He and Haruichi work together, though it’s mostly Haruichi because Eijun’s usually distracted by the kids who like to visit him (and also like to take advantage of him spoiling them). His patrol route is also part of the Miyuki yakuza group’s territory so he runs into them a lot and now also thinks it’s standard for all yakuza to have mullets.

Another AU that I’m not sure what I’ll do with, but it’s a lot of fun to draw and come up with ideas for!

i’d take the earth, palms a cradle (like a god
or girl playing god). inhale continents
and countries. swallow whole (til
what i lost in you fits back to me), easier
than a lullaby (or a sorry i can’t love you).
i would, i will, i swear it on the sea.
still listening? love letters from girl’s drawer
will reach you by tidal wave. message in a bottle,
bottle is my heart (stamped handle with care
but you, blind to fine print). girl seeking self
in a world divorced, world farther away
than the sky. girl forgetting the meaning
of her name in her native language. girl
playing god with kingdoms at her feet
to recall control: you, a hurricane.
(this is the aftermath.)

Making reading assignments clear to students who use electronic formats

When reading assignments are assigned in the form “Read pages 75-100 in the Book of Subject Relevance”, it creates a problem for students who use electronic formats such as Kindle or Bookshare. Those formats often do not include page numbers, and it can be difficult-to-impossible to know what to read just by seeing page numbers.

There’s a simple solution that allows students to do the assignment:

  • If you’re assigning a whole chapter, tell students which chapter you mean.
  • eg: “Read Chapter 3 in the Book of Subject Relevance (pages 75-100).
  • If you’re not assigning whole chapters, include the first and last sentence in the assignment.
  • This allows students to use the search function to find the place you’re talking about.
  • eg: “Read pages 75-100 in the Book of Subject Relevance. (From “I have a slightly plausible theory.” through “In conclusion, I have shown that I am definitely right.”)

It’s good to also include the page numbers, because that’s better for students who use the print edition, and it gives all students a sense of how much reading there is.

tl;dr Giving reading assignments in page numbers causes a problem for students who aren’t reading the print edition. There’s a simple solution to this. Scroll up for details.

3D printed ultrasound lets blind mother touch the face of her unborn baby 

Technology changes lives. Huggies Brazil used a 3D printer to give 30-year old expecting mom Tatiana Guerra an experience she’ll remember the rest of her life. The blind mom was gifted a 3D printed version of an ultrasound to help her ‘see’ her unborn baby for the first time. The experience was captured in a short film that has gone viral on YouTube and it’s a very touching moment.
