The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination.

Some brain functions improve with age!

That’s according to Laura Germine, a past NSF graduate research fellow (go GRFs!) and currently a postdoctoral fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.  Hey, who’s not getting older?  So, our interview with Laura also kicks off a new NSF audio podcast, “And Now for the Good News,” featured Science360 Radio: www.Science360.gov/radio

10.  Toby. (When It Happens) lissyreads I love how we both have read and love the same character. He’s just so sweet.

9. George. He’s incredibly smart (I mean, hello, he graduated from Harvard EARLY) and sweet. (Wrong About the Guy) 

8. Jason. He, might be annoying, but he’s just trying to be funny. And you find out what a nice guy he actually is! (Meant to Be)

7. Elise Benton. I just flat out love her character. And, also, Derek. (Epic Fail)

6. Katniss Everdeen. I love how strong her character is. These books were the first “big books” I ever actually read, so, I do believe she will forever be in my top ten favorite characters. (The Hunger Games) 

5. Mr. Darcy. (And Elizabeth Bennet, I can’t leave her out, I mean come on!) They are both just amazing characters. Really. (Pride and Prejudice)

4. Tris Prior. Because I just loved her and this entire series. (Divergent)

Favorite parts of this video clip:

  • Charismatic Harvard graduates giving confident, winsome (wrong) explanations, as befits their Ivy League education.
  • Science teacher watching the video of her students, silently cringing.
  • The narrator saying “Heather believes that light can bounce” in a grim tone of voice.
  • “You assume that they know certain things, and… [trails off and sadly shakes head]”.

I was thinking about your post and Fords lack of common sense. Sometimes, really brilliant people tend to be missing something in the social parts of their brains. I spent a few weeks with my friends who were Harvard graduates or other very prestigious schools. They had like... Zero common sense when it came to everyday things. It was amazing that they got around the subways alone like they did. On that other hand, they were shocked at my social skills.

Yeah - to me, Ford is SO book smart but, like, literally an idiot when it comes to really important things - LIKE FEELINGS.

Stan’s just as stunted but he has a lot of common sense and he actually worked hard to become book smart too - how else could he have gotten the portal up and running? No one gives Stan enough credit - not even Ford - might have to fix that ficwise, if you know what I’m saying…

Eritrean-American Haben Girma, The First Deaf-Blind Harvard Law School Graduate
The U.S. Embassy in Asmara congratulates Eritrean-American Haben Girma for becoming the first deaf-blind graduate of Harvard Law School.

The U.S. Embassy salutes Eritrean-American Haben Girma for her courage and determination in the face of physical challenges. We were happy to learn that she was welcomed at the White House to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and we congratulate her on becoming the first deaf-blind graduate of Harvard Law School.

Haben Girma’s family comes from Eritrea where she says a child like her, born deaf and blind, is viewed “as a curse on the family” — and certainly not someone you can educate. After her family immigrated to the US, they discovered that children like Haben Girma could excel in school and, two years ago, she became the first deaf-blind graduate of Harvard Law School.

At the White House’s recent ceremony celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the 27-year-old Haben shared her unique story of how education, legislation, and a desire for chocolate cake set her on the path to a career as a civil rights attorney.

When Haben was born in the US, her family thought they wouldn’t be able to find a school for her: her older brother, also born deaf-blind, had been turned away from every Eritrean school they had approached. But in California, Saba Gebreyesus, Haben’s mother, discovered that her children had the right to an education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Haben attended a public school in a mainstream classroom, leaving her class for an hour a day to learn Braille. With education, she thrived, and set off after graduation to Lewis & Clark College in Oregon.
