Giant squids might be even bigger than we realized

According to research from Charles Paxton, fisheries ecologist and statistician at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews, published in the Journal of Zoology this month, the giant squid could grow to reach as much as 65 feet. But even that is a “conservative analysis,” as size could protect against their #1 predator.

When you’re an artist, nobody ever tells you or hits you with the magic wand of legitimacy. You have to hit your own head with your own handmade wand. And you feel stupid doing it. There’s no “correct path” to becoming a real artist. You might think you’ll gain legitimacy by going to university, getting published, getting signed to a record label…[but] it’s all in your head. You’re an artist when you say you are. And you’re a good artist when you make somebody else experience or feel something deep or unexpected.

SpockFact #89

Two years into the five year mission, Spock realized he didn’t know what’s in those colorful cubes that everyone eats. Vaguely disturbed, he spent months in the lab attempting to determine what they were. At first he thought they were jello (which would have been bad, since he is a vegetarian). However, they aren’t. Nor are they fruit squares, nor dyed protein. According to his scans they are nothing real at all. Whatever they are does not exist in this universe. He attempted to publish a paper on the cubes and got a visit from Section 31. He elected not to publish the paper.

hi maddie!! so i'm trying to write my own yoi fic, centered around yuuri and viktor when they're in university. the thing is, i have NO IDEA how university works, and i noticed that 'centripetal force' is set in university. i'm confused about classes and degrees and how lessons work (homework and tests, u get the idea). would you mind explaining it? thank you so much!

Hi hi hi!!! Yes centripetal force is set in an American college/university!!! I’ll be honest, though, I’m not sure I’m the *best* person to explain how American colleges work to you because, though I’m American, I’m not actually in college yet myself!! I’ll still try and give some general advice though and maybe some kind people could fill in the gaps for you!

A lot of those things vary from school to school and degree to degree! So depending on what degree you’re pursuing in college, you’ll get a certain major, which is like your main area of focus! Some people go into colleges with a major already ‘declared’ and other people go in ‘undecided’ and choose later! You can also have minors, which are sort of like minor areas of focus, and other people double major or have multiple minors.

As for classes I think about four classes per semester is the average for most schools?? Most, if not all, colleges run on a ‘credit’ system so four classes would be about 12 credits (3 credits per class). A lot of schools have ‘general education requirements’ which are essentially classes you have to take at some point. So for example, if you’re a computer science major, you may still have to take English courses during your early college years in order to knock out those requirements. However, you can also be exempt from gen-ed classes depending on your AP scores (AP Tests are tests you take in high school–if you get certain grades on them then you can get college credit for that subject)!

I know that most college classes have grades dependent upon a few tests over the course of a semester, but other than that I’m afraid that’s where my knowledge ends!! Homework and stuff would probably depend on the major and the rigor of the college itself!

Books I use(d) for Korean study

I have studied Korean for almost three years now through a mix of self-study and taught classes.  I’ll list the books that I have used up until now. 

Textbooks from taught classes: 

  • Integrated Korean Series — Beginning 1, Beginning 2, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Advanced Intermediate 1 
  • 재미있는 한국어 [published by Korea University] — 5급
  • 연세 한국어 [published by Yonsei University] — 3-1, 3-2, 읽기 3 

Textbooks I use(d) for self-study: 

  • Basic Korean: A Grammar and Workbook
  • Intermediate Korean: A Grammar and Workbook. 
  • Frog’s Tears and Other Stories: Readings in Korean Culture Series. 
  • Modern Korean: An Intermediate Reader. 
  • 외국인을 위한 한국어 문법 연습 [published by Yonsei Univeristy] - 중급

Some of these books I haven’t finished yet and I’ve supplemented my knowledge a lot from online blogs and video series’. 

All these books have good and bad points; so this isn’t a ‘recommendation’ post, rather I made it for people who are curious about what I’ve used. 

5 Books from University Publishers 

To celebrate University Press Week and our university press community here at Getty Publications, we took a shelfie of an eclectic mix of some of our favorite UP titles. Follow #ReadUP to see all the great offerings from university presses!

1. “T. S Eliot and Prejudice,” by Christopher Ricks. (University of California Press, 1989)

 This incisive study of an important modernist poet tackles a lot of the thorny issues that surround his work and confronts Eliot’s deep prejudices directly. It’s an important piece of scholarship from the University of California Press.

2. “Horace, the Odes,” Edited by J. D. McClatchy. (Princeton University Press, 2005). 

This translated collection showcases the wonderfully protean works of Horace but calling on thirty-odd poets to translate poems. The result is lively, fun, and unexpected. A big thank you to Princeton University Press for publishing this!

3. “The Iliad by Homer,” Translated by Richard Lattimore. (University of Chicago Press, 2011). 

The Lattimore translation of the Iliad is often assigned for the classroom, because it captures the excitement of the Iliad with accuracy and a light touch. This new(ish) edition from the University of Chicago Press has a stylish design.

4. “The Lady Anatomist,” by Rebecca Messbarger. (University of Chicago Press, 2010).

This beautifully assembled book is a fascinating look at a Anna Morandi Manzolini, an eighteenth-century Italian woman who became one of the most famous anatomical sculptors—creating most of her work in wax—of the period. A lovely read for those who love the weird and wacky of history, which is also from the University of Chicago Press.

5. “Man Ray: Writings on Art,” Edited by Jennifer Mundy. (Getty Publications, 2016. 

 Read about the work and life of Man Ray in his own words, from his time in Paris to his years in Los Angeles. His journals, letters, and poetry are all featured in this charming book from Getty Publications.

i'm confused what is umpg i thought he was with columbia

Universal Music Publishing Group deals with writing copyrights/royalties. Columbia is a record label. From their websiteUniversal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) is one of the leading global music publishers with 43 offices in 36 countries. Headquartered in Los Angeles, UMPG represents music in every genre from some of the world’s most important songwriters and catalogs. Wiki has a good breakdown of what exactly a publishing company does if you want to know more

Is it strange that he signed a publishing deal with Universal but a record deal with Columbia? - @sweptawaytvnow
Nope! UMPG has deals with multiple artists that are signed to rival parent companies such as Sony. The quote gave a good example of Adele who is signed to Columbia (Sony) but has just made a deal with UMPG like Harry! The Wall Street Journal hinted earlier this year that Harry was “discussing deals with an upfront fee in excess of $6million” with publishing companies, so it looks like UMPG won out. 


“Look, pal. If you’re gonna come in here and wax poetic about learning from the mistakes of our ancestors, or some such shavit, you can stop right there. We’re Solos, and we’re Skywalkers. End of story.”

  • Practicing contemporary music: I'll probably understand this better in full band.

ATTN: Drexel University: Record and publish the meeting with Professor George Ciccariello-Maher
On 24-12-2016, George Ciccariello-Maher, an assistant professor in the Department of History and Politics decided to tweet: " All I want for Christmas is White Genocide " Ciccariello-Maher's tweet caused a significant backlash that caused him to make his Twitter account private, and Drexel University...

Please sign this petition.

This is a Professor of Drexel University who has tweeted statements like “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide” and “To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed” as well as “Abolish the White Race” and “White isn’t a race.” He’s also a communist - no seriously.

This petition will allow the meeting to be recorded and published, just so people can see what sort of regressivism goes on within the walls of academia.

As of typing this, we are at 200 til 1500 signatures.

@takashi0 @lovely-luxray @matt-ruins-feminisms-shit. Thank you for your time.
