Some pictures I took last weekend in Austin! Enjoy!
Societal messages women hear on the daily. It’s disturbing, isn’t it?
THE OLD DENTED, RUSTY BUCKET
OUR HOUSE WAS DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE CLINIC ENTRANCE OF JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL IN BALTIMORE. WE LIVED DOWNSTAIRS AND RENTED THE UPSTAIRS ROOMS TO OUT-PATIENTS AT THE CLINIC.
IN THE YEARS HE CAME TO STAY OVERNIGHT WITH US, THERE WAS NEVER A TIME THAT HE DID NOT BRING US FISH OR OYSTERS OR VEGETABLES FROM HIS GARDEN. OTHER TIMES WE RECEIVED PACKAGES IN THE MAIL, ALWAYS BY SPECIAL DELIVERY; FISH AND OYSTERS PACKED IN A BOX OF FRESH YOUNG SPINACH OR KALE, EVERY LEAF CAREFULLY WASHED. KNOWING THAT HE MUST WALK 3 MILES TO MAIL THESE, AND KNOWING HOW LITTLE MONEY HE HAD MADE THE GIFTS DOUBLY PRECIOUS.
SHOW YOUR FRIENDS HOW MUCH YOU CARE. PASS THIS ON, AND BRIGHTEN SOMEONE’S DAY. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN IF YOU DO NOT DECIDE TO PASS IT ALONG. THE ONLY THING THAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU DO PASS IT ON IS THAT SOMEONE MIGHT SMILE (BECAUSE OF YOU).
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is unarguably one of the world’s premier establishments of higher learning. Leaders from all over the world have graduated from MIT, including Benjamin Netanyahu, Ford Motor Company’s Executive Chairman William Clay Ford, Jr., and the founder of E*Trade, William (Bill) Porter. It’s also home to some of the world’s brightest young stars in the areas of energy management, poverty relief, and cognizant studies.
Being one of the world’s best universities bestows on MIT an obligation to make the world a better place, not only by providing the kind of education that shapes leaders and molds think tanks, but by making that education accessible to everyone who has access to the internet. Sure, you’re not going to get any credit or earn a degree from MIT, but you CAN “attend” the university and have access to its course materials, syllabi, videos of lectures, exams and more. Why? Stated simply by Dick K. P. Yue, a professor in MIT’s School of Engineering, “The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.” How beautiful is that?!
I have always wanted to major in Political Science, but the years that I was able to attend college have passed me by. I don’t have the time, nor the funds, nor the energy to do so now. I DO have a burning desire for learning, an internet connection, and access to MIT’s course materials in Political Science. Nirvana!! Other disciplines offered include biological engineering, physics, and music and theater arts, something for almost everyone!
Try it, there’s always something new to learn!
I have about a pound of this stuff at home, I use it when I make bath salts. It’s FANTASTIC. GET some!
