I Publish One Links Post, I Get Right to Work on Another.

Also because I am too:

  • tired
  • annoyed by the world at large

… to accomplish any more involved writing of my own. Maybe tomorrow. With coffee.

Anyway.

From the Testing Trenches at Librarian Shipwreck — “I gradually realized the truth behind a frequently expressed sentiment about standardized tests: the only thing that a standardized test can measure is a person’s ability to take that standardized test.”

The pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness by kaberett at Lashings of Ginger Beer Time [note for chronic pain, medication, gatekeeping] — “If you’ve seen me perform with Lashings, you’ve almost certainly seen me take prescription medication while on stage. You’ve likely seen me on codeine. And here’s what I can tell you for certain: you have never, ever seen me unmedicated.”

Hard-Wired to Hate Exercise? by Shirley S. Wang at The Wall Street Journal — “How people interpret their body’s sensations during and after exercise plays a large role in whether they enjoy it. Also, researchers at Iowa State University found that people’s physical capacity could be much lower than many realize, so many people push beyond their limits without realizing it.” (Found via Caitlin at Fit and Feminist.)

Detroit can’t recover economically with lead-poisoned children by Celeste Monforton at The Pump Handle — “A newly published study in the American Journal of Public Health reports a strong association between high blood lead levels before age 6 years and “less than proficient” scores on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) tests given in grades 3, 5 and 8.” (Via Melissa at Shakesville.)

The Stupidest Metaphor of All Time by A. Lynn at Nerdy Feminist — “Even if the lock/key metaphor wasn’t sexist, which it is, it’s also just totally illogical. WHY in the world should we extrapolate a fact that is true about an OBJECT to be true about our genitals?”
