ASAN Vancouver’s protest at the 2016 Autism Speaks walk in Burnaby, BC.* Part one! Photos by Marvin Schaber :)

[Photoset description: A series of six photographs taken of the attendees, the colourful signage, the flyers we distributed, and the location of ASAN Vancouver’s protest against Autism Speaks. We set up alongside a paved path that the Autism Speaks event used as the walk route.

There is a table set up with signage that says “Free Earplugs” and “People Not Puzzles” that is holding flyers and earplugs. Signage with the ASAN Vancouver name, logo, and a QR code stands next to the group.

Some of the signs say, “Listen to Autistic adults”, “Support Not Cure”, “Autistic rights are human rights”, and “Protest against Autism Speaks”.

Two visible flyer titles say “What’s the Problem With Whole Body Listening?” and “Neurodiversity”. End of image description.]

*Correction: No brain, it was not. It was in Richmond this year.

Holy cannoli, I’ve made it to the middle of the challenge somehow! Basically midterms keep me in shape and there’s not a single day when I’m not reading/studying/writing an essay 💓
The only reason my next 2-week spread looks kinda empty is just because I haven’t planned everything just yet ٩( ᐛ )و

And congrats to me, I’ve applied to become a member of a student section of International Institute of Political Science based in Prague! The network is very active here in Brno and I’ll have an opportunity to attend many interesting conferences and events! I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT IT! ヽ(*^ω^*)ノ

anonymous asked:

Why did you choose Wellesley as a option?

There are a number of reasons why I’m interested in Wellesley.

First and foremost, I really believe in Wellesley’s stated mission of creating a space where women are encouraged not just to reach their own personal potential, but to have an outward focus and connect their academic work to service (as that’s an important focus of my studies and my life in general). I’m also attracted to the campus culture and the small class sizes; I want the opportunity to work closely with faculty, to not get lost in the crowd, and to be part of a campus that really feels like a community, and as a student leader who has done a lot of work with student organizations as well as college governance, Wellesley’s full-engagement philosophy connects well with my experiences.

Academically, I like that Wellesley has a reputation for rigor, and I’ve gone through their course listings and found a lot of courses that align with my particular research interests in both Anthropology and Political Science. I was really drooling over some of their applied anthropology course offerings (how awesome does “Anthropology of Queer Activism” sound??)

It also doesn’t hurt that I visited last year and absolutely fell in love with both the campus (it seriously looks a school for witches) and the region. From the moment I left Massachusetts, I’ve been trying to get back. A winter there might change my mind, but my visit perfectly matched my idealized vision of New England in the fall, and I was totally smitten.

There are actually a whole bunch of reasons why Wellesley stands out to me in my search for the perfect program, but those are kind of the highlights. ✨

Top 15 Interview Questions with Answers for Network Administrators

Q-1: What is Active Directory?
Active Directory provides a centralized control for network administration and security. Server computers configured with Active Directory are known as domain controllers. Active Directory stores all information and settings for a deployment in a central database, and allows administrators to assign policies and deploy and update software.

Q-2: What is NetBIOS protocol?
NetBIOS (Network Basic Input/Output System) Protocol allows applications on separate computers to communicate over a LAN. It runs over TCP/IP giving each computer in the network a NetBIOS name and IP address. E.g. It can be used for computers running Windows 2000 (or before) to join a computer network running Windows 2000 (or later).
