Hey, all! Sorry I missed last week’s round up. Getting prepared for the fall semester is hard enough when there’s not a pandemic raging. Also it was my birthday so goofing off was literally the only way I could […]
Noisy wrote a new post, Quickies: Toxic hand sanitizer, side benefit of face masks, racism in NH policing, and more…, on the site Skepchick 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Your Friday Quickies are late again… because virtual academic conferences are surprisingly just as tiring as in-person events.
First off, check your hand sanitizer bottles. The FDA has recalled 77 products […]

I find myself catching up after a week in my online-teaching hide-y hole…
Employees of the Centers for Disease Control call out a “toxic culture of racial aggressions.”
Meanwhile, the Trump […]

Big news out of Oklahoma as the Supreme Court rules that the Muscogee (Creek) Nation was never dissolved, affirming tribal sovereignty. H/t Ryan from MAL for sharing this.
In a victory for the Standing […]
Noisy wrote a new post, Quickies: Fourth of July reflection, COVID fails, but a few spots of bright news…, on the site Skepchick 1 month, 1 week ago
A very quick Quickies today, as I’m staring down several immediate deadlines…
Watch Fredrick Douglass’s descendants deliver his speech, “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?” Reading and reflecting on […]
And the dorms. The DORMS. Most of our students live in the dorms and I love them dearly but do we HONESTLY believe they are going to distance themselves enough to prevent an outbreak? They really want to learn on campus and I don’t blame them because I miss them, but… the whole thing is a huge cause of anxiety for me.

Happy weekend, all. This’ll be the first Friday Quickies in a while without a theme. My brain is set to random…
Systemic racism is a huge issue in science. So, here’s what Black scientists want from […]

Well, I definitely missed the Friday Quickies this week. Oops. So let’s end the weekend by celebrating some Black joy and accomplishments in the wake of Juneteenth. (And, yes, these selections are totally biased […]

Hey, all. Have you been keeping up with the list of direct actions that you can take from last week’s quickies? Because actions keep getting added. Tragically, names are as well, some of them seriously injured […]
I honestly don’t know where to begin after a week like this in the United States. Or should I say, yet ANOTHER week like this, because, in a lot of ways, we’ve been here before. Last week, I posted a short list of […]
I’m not doing a usual Friday Quickies roundup today because I am still raging about the most recent spate of extrajudicial killings of Black people by police or just good ol’ boys here in the USA. Instead I’m […]

Happy Friday! If I didn’t do my weekly Friday Quickies, would I even know what day it was?
First, COVID-related items:
Why, yes, I AM going to keep insisting that everyone read about how time duration of […]
What? The Friday Quickies are back on an actual Friday?! I mean, all time is Jeremy Bearimy anyway, but whatever bit of normalcy I can hang on to, I will.
First, some COVID-related stuff:
The Risks – Know […]

Hello, friends! This weekend I finished the Impossible Semester, so I look forward to putting the Cute Animal Fridays BACK on actual Fridays. For now, here are some good reads from the week.
As we struggle […]
Heck yes on numbers 1 and 2.
On number, 3, I have so been guilty of this and am torn between “AH PUBLIC SAFETY” and “STFU ME IT’S NOT MY BUSINESS.”
Anyway, I’ve stopped being annoyed at the new neighbor throwing small outdoor parties in his backyard. Cuz maybe we’re all just going a little bug nut crazy and need to sit in a somewhat socially…[Read more]

I can’t believe it’s already May. Where did April go? Oh yeah, in a haze of anxiety inside my house…
Do you find yourself saying, “how are you?” and realizing that’s a ridiculous frakking question right […]

The husband is making chocolate chip pancakes, and the dogs are snoozing on top of each other next to me. Enjoy the little things that can bring a bit of piece and joy to all this!
Okay, enough sappy shit… here […]
