Dr. Borous, why don't you name nightstalkers, snuppies? It's a cute name! I bet Dr.Dala would agree!

I don’t know how familar you are with Big MT’s operating policies, but there is a very extensive list of things that people are not allowed to do on campus.

#216 - The name of any creation should be somewhat indicative of its function, nature, or propensity to violence.

#216 amendment A - Names that meet the above conditions but are deliberately misleading, either by indication of ‘cuteness’ or utilization of dadaist or memetic humor (i.e; snake puppies, or snuppies - since re-branded Nightstalkers, and Cazadores, formerly known as 'buzzkills’) are not allowed, do to the unfortunate repercussions of various miscommunications, usually involving the 'snuppies’ in question.

- Dr. Klein.

P.S

#4 - If Dr. Dala agrees with an idea, check with a member of the Ethics Board or Logistical Operations before proceeding.

#5 - If Dr. Dala suggests any activity that bears any resemblance to a violation of the Geneva Convention, inform the Ethics Board and Logistical Operations immediately.

Jerusalem reference found on ancient wine ledger

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) seized the 2,700-year-old papyrus from thieves who had taken it from a desert cave near the Dead Sea.

Two lines in Hebrew detail the shipment of wine from the king’s household.

“From the king’s maidservant, from Na'arat, jars of wine, to Jerusalem,” it reads.

“The document represents extremely rare evidence of the existence of an organised administration in the Kingdom of Judah,” said Dr Eitan Klein of the IAA.

Archaeologists dated the 11cm by 2.5cm (4.3in by 1in) piece of papyrus to the 7th Century BC and say it is the earliest mention of the city of Jerusalem from a source other than the Bible. Read more.

This is my newest bisexual sculpture! The second part of my bisexual series.

           In The “Good” Bisexual, I aimed to address the public on bisexuality while discussing issues and causes for biphobia and bi-erasure. My goal is to create an understanding of a fluid sexuality in order to encourage conversation of its place within contemporary society.

           Dr. Fritz Klein, founder of the American Institute of Bisexuality, wrote that bisexuals face a unique form of erasure where there is not a community. Things are getting better, but still, today there is only an invisible community to be a part of. Bisexuality becomes an absorbed identity defined by the gender of the significant other.

           The “Good” Bisexual is portraying the wide spectrum of preferences a bisexual can operate under in order to identify as bisexual. Bisexuality is defined as attraction to two or more genders, however, bisexuals can range from any part of the spectrum. Some prefer more homosexual relationships while others prefer more heterosexual or non-binary relationships. Criticism from homosexual and heterosexual groups creates a feeling of being an outsider. Lack of support from within the invisible community of bisexuals who have a more “equal” preferences create a false standard in order to be “bisexual enough”. These preferences result in bisexuals feeling like they are “bad bisexuals” or “not bisexual enough”.  

The “Good” Bisexual addresses the amount of bi-erasure that occurs when people think bisexuals should “prove” or “legitimize” their identity. My series of sculptures addressing the invisible bisexual community means to bring the lack of a visible community to light. I desire to create a community that respects and supports one another as bisexuals rather than pushing each other back into the dark.


I thought this was perfect for this weeks Bi talk! If you have yet to look at the blog I suggest you do, it is uplifting to have real conversations from others in the community.

Feldrabbiner (field rabbis), German Jewish chaplains in the First World War. These two pictures show the variant insignia used by Feldrabbiner: the Magen David on the cap band (Christian chaplains wore a cross in the same place) and large Magen David necklace for easier identification. All chaplains wore the standard armband, red cross with horizontal purple bar, in addition to their religious insignia.

The chaplain on the left is Rabbi Dr. Siegfried Klein, winner of the Iron Cross. He was murdered in Auschwitz in 1944.
