Aboriginal art and culture in the Territory

Aboriginal art and culture in the Territory

Watching those birds near the billabong, and near the banks, in the water. When I go back to the art centre, I’ll remember what I saw and paint a picture of it. I learned at the art centre when I was a boy after school sitting down with the elders and as I was watching and also at that time I was learning. My uncle told me about story, painting, kangaroo, fish, turtle, croc, jabiru told me that. My grandfather,…

From Injured Softball Player to Culture-Defining Head Coach

From Injured Softball Player to Culture-Defining Head Coach

My name is Courtney Moyer and I’m the head softball coach at Shenandoah.

The “opportunity gap” in US public education — and how to close it | Anindya Kundu

My first job out of college was as an academic researcher at one of the largest juvenile detention centers in the country.

Why Do We Take Selfies? (Michel Foucault) – 8-Bit Philosophy

Why Do We Take Selfies? (Michel Foucault) – 8-Bit Philosophy

It’s hard to walk down the street these days without witnessing someone so enthralled with themself that they can’t help but take a picture, or 20, of their own mug. The compulsion to take selfies is a relatively new development in society, a progression from the days when one had to rely on strangers to snap the perfect picture. Selfies have become a way to narrate our own existence: we post them on social media and frantically hit ‘refresh’ to…
