Spotify And Ancestry Announced A Collaboration And It Freaked Some People Out https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/remysmidt/spotify-ancestry-dna-results-music-playlist

Comment

"Spotify can now make you a playlist based on where your ancestors are from — because Ancestry and the music platform have collaborated. Anyone who has some idea of their lineage and a Spotify account can generate one of these playlists by selecting "regions" on the company's website. "Anyone with the link can take advantage of the customized playlist, but the regions in the drop-down menu directly correlate to AncestryDNA results and this specific part of the partnership is geared toward AncestryDNA customers," a spokesperson for Ancestry told BuzzFeed News on Monday."

"A spokesperson for Ancestry told BuzzFeed News on Monday that no "DNA data" is shared with the music streaming platform. "Spotify does not have access to DNA data of any Ancestry customers," she said on Monday."

DPD Fires Amber Guyger, Officer Who Killed Botham Jean https://www.dallasobserver.com/news/dallas-police-chief-fires-amber-guyger-11178398

Comment

""Effective immediately, Amber Guyger is no longer with the Dallas Police Department. That decision and hearing was held this morning, at approximately 10 a.m.," police Chief U. Renee Hall said Monday. "As a police chief, it is my job to ensure the highest level of integrity in an investigation. That is what I did, and I waited until the critical portion of this investigation was completed. The investigation is ongoing but the critical part where it could be compromised has been completed." "

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Last week, Hall said she'd not yet taken steps to fire Guyger because the chief worried that statement's made by Guyger during a DPD administrative investigation could compromise the criminal investigation into the shooting."

The Regional Chinese Cuisine Linked to an Ancient Assassin https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/how-did-squirrel-shaped-fish-become-popular

Comment

"Suzhou owes its existence to these waterways, and particularly to the availability of fish. While fish gave life to Suzhou’s cuisine, it was also responsible for the death of the former king more than 2,500 years ago."

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Back during ancient China’s Spring and Autumn Period (approximately 771 to 476 B.C.), Prince Guang of Wu wanted to usurp the throne of his uncle, King Liao. So he recruited an assassin named Zhuan Zhu for assistance. Knowing that his uncle was both a fan of seafood and not an easy target, Guang decided to disguise Zhuan Zhu as a chef. “Guang first sent the assassin to nearby Lake Taihu, where he spent three full months learning the art of cooking and dressing large lake fish,” says Chen. “The fish he prepared would then conceal a tiny sword in its innards.” That culinary process involved learning techniques such as smoking and roasting, as well as cleaning and filleting fish properly—which also gave the assassin the perfect opportunity to hide a weapon inside."

ROC honor guard sends British veteran on last journey - Taipei Times http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2018/09/22/2003700925

Comment

"Four Taiwanese army officers on Thursday formed an honor guard as British Army veteran Gerald Fitzpatrick on Thursday was buried in Leeds with military honors with the Republic of China (ROC) flag draping his coffin. Fitzpatrick, who was deployed to Asia in the 1940s, died on Aug. 27 at age 99. He requested that his coffin be draped with the flag as a symbol of his gratitude to the ROC soldiers who rescued him and 7,000 other British soldiers in what was then Burma during World War II in the Battle of Yenangyaung."

 ‎· JustDuckie 1
Comment

"The funeral was also attended by Representative to Britain David Lin (林永樂) and Liu Wei-min (劉偉民), son of late army Major General Liu Fang-wu (劉放吾), who led the rescue of Fitzpatrick and the other British soldiers during the 1942 battle. Ministry of National Defense documents show that Liu Fang-wu was ordered to lead an emergency operation after Britain asked the ROC to assist thousands of British soldiers who were under siege by Japanese troops in the oil fields surrounding Yenangyaung on April 17, 1942. It took two days of intense fighting for the ROC contingent to defeat the Japanese forces and rescue the Britons, records show."

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Taiwan has fulfilled two of Fitzpatrick’s three wishes: to have his coffin draped with the national flag and have an ROC honor guard, Liu Wei-min said However, the nation might not be able to meet his third request — to have a memorial stone in his honor at the Martyrs’ Shrine in Taipei — because of stringent regulations, he said."

"The Wild Bird Society of Keelung is to apply to have a seal-shaped rock designated a natural monument by the Keelung City Government. The rock, which is in the city’s Badouzih (八斗子) area, has captured attention on social media. The society hopes that by applying to have the rock recognized under Article 78 of the Cultural Heritage Preservation Act (文化資產保存法), attention will be drawn to the Badouzih area’s development and the rock’s management, society director Shen Chin-feng (沈錦豐) said."

Tainan to sell Confucius snack noodles - Taipei Times http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2018/09/21/2003700862

The Food Truck That Invites You to Be the Cook https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/unusual-food-trucks

Comment

"Community members are invited to climb inside the truck and cook a small sample of a specific dish that’s meaningful to them. It doesn’t have to be complicated, or even particularly palatable, says Thiessen. It simply has to have a story."

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"“What I love about oral history interviews is that it doesn’t matter how much you’ve read, or studied—or even lived through yourself,” says Thiessen. “They’re always surprising. And we have the opportunity to share these stories with others, and have them appreciate that life is a lot more complicated, and humanity is a lot more diverse, than any of us anticipate.”"

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Though these stories are rooted in Manitoba, they branch far beyond the province’s borders. While recreating three types of salsas on the truck, one community member recounted his migration story of fleeing as a young boy from El Salvador during the country’s Civil War. After settling in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he was forced to navigate the pressures of integrating into society while trying to preserve his Salvadoran identity. Food, he remarked, is one of the ways in which he manages to do this."

"I’m wild and ill-tempered. I know this because Mellie, the maid who raised me after my parents died in a ballooning accident, is always saying, “Why can’t you be less wild and ill-tempered?” I can never keep a petticoat clean for more than five minutes. This bothers Mellie, as well it should, because I am quite disrespectful of her time. But I must be in constant contact with mud to demonstrate how unlike other girls I am."

"The other problem is that I am quite lean. Some would even go so far as to call me “wiry.” What awful luck, right? Everyone is always saying things to me like “You’re too skinny, but you’ll turn out alright.” The thing is, I know my small size conveys a certain amount of privilege. For example, I am always able to lurk in dark corners undetected and learn crucial pieces of information. And there was that time I needed to hide in a barrel full of cod while a gruff but merry band of fishermen secreted me away on a canal boat. What a stink! Still, every night I look out the window of my shabby yet comfortable hideout carved into an oceanside cliff and wish for exactly one-quarter-inch more flesh on my delicate, birdlike frame."

Arthur Mitchell Is Dead at 84; Showed the Way for Black Dancers https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/19/obituaries/arthur-mitchell-dead.html?action=click&module=Features&pgtype=Homepage

Comment

"Arthur Mitchell, a charismatic dancer with the New York City Ballet in the 1950s and ’60s and the founding director of the groundbreaking Dance Theater of Harlem, died on Wednesday in Manhattan. He was 84."

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Mr. Mitchell, the first black ballet dancer to achieve international stardom, was one of the most popular dancers with the New York City Ballet, where he danced from 1956 to 1968 and displayed a dazzling presence, superlative artistry and powerful sense of self. That charisma served him well as the director of Dance Theater of Harlem, the nation’s first major black classical company, as it navigated its way through severe financial problems in recent decades and complex aesthetic questions about the relationship of black contemporary dancers to an 18th-century European art form. When asked in an interview with The New York Times in January what he considered his greatest achievement, he said, “That I actually bucked society, and an art form that was three, four hundred years old and brought black people into it.”"

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"One of the last ballets Mr. Mitchell performed with City Ballet was Balanchine’s “Requiem Canticles,” a tribute to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. created shortly after he was killed in 1968. Profoundly affected by the King assassination, Mr. Mitchell began to work toward establishing a school that would provide the children of Harlem with the kinds of opportunities he had had. He founded the Dance Theater of Harlem the next year with Karel Shook, a friend and longtime mentor. In the early 2000s, the company, along with its dance school, faced mounting debt and was forced to go on hiatus in 2004. But it returned to performance in reduced form in 2012 and now tours regularly and performs at City Center. The school today has more than 300 students."

"The game of kok-boru, with its headless goat carcass, was the main attraction at the weeklong international sports competition held this month in Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan. Other highlights included bone tossing, hunting with eagles and 17 types of wrestling, including bare-chested horseback wrestling, where the weaker competitor often clings desperately to the animal’s head as spectators roar in anticipation of him hitting the dirt. The organizers hope to resurrect nomadic traditions, especially those of Central Asia, whose cultures were pushed toward extinction by decades of Soviet collectivization and then globalization."

Elderly Cards might cover taxis - Taipei Times http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2018/09/19/2003700719

"About 90 percent of the nearly 400 care stations serving the city’s elderly residents provide meals, but their main purpose is to encourage elderly people to leave their homes, Ko said, adding that the Elderly Card serves the same purpose by encouraging senior residents to use the MRT, city bus and YouBike services. “Statistics show that the average time that elderly people in Finland spend bedridden before dying is about two weeks, but that time is seven years in Taiwan,” he said. “We want elderly people to live not only longer, but also healthier, so we try to encourage them to go outdoors.”"

No decision made on names of female scientists: ministry - Taipei Times http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/taiwan/archives/2018/09/18/2003700656

Comment

"A guideline in the 12-year national natural science curriculum to promote gender equality states that the full names of female scientists’ be used in textbooks, even though they are better known by their husband’s surname, the Ministry of Education said yesterday. The ministry’s curriculum review committee on Sunday approved a set of guidelines for the curriculum, including one that states: “In portrayals of major scientific discoveries, there should be provision of such information as gender, ethnicity or other background relevant to the scientists who have contributed to the findings.”"

 ‎· JustDuckie

"This was interpreted by some reporters to mean that French-Polish scientist Marie Curie, a two-time Nobel Prize winner, to cite one example, would have to be referred to in textbooks as Maria Sklodowska-Curie."

"The guidelines will become the principles the National Academy for Educational Research uses when it reviews textbooks, but whether the contents of the books are in compliance with the guidelines, including how to refer to a female scientist, is a decision that would be made by the academy, she said. When the proposed guideline was discussed at the meeting, a suggestion was made that Curie’s name be changed to her maiden name, Tai said. However, there is no mention in the guidelines of how Curie’s name, or those of other female scientists should be designated, Tai said."

What a South Carolina Ghost Story Says About Hurricanes and History https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/south-carolina-hurricane-ghost

"While there is disagreement surrounding details (common to many ghost stories)—like who the Gray Man is supposed to have been and when he first appeared—the tale’s basic contours are generally accepted. In sum, a man was returning to his beloved on Pawleys Island after a long time away, but died in quicksand before arriving. Since then, he has been said to appear shortly before hurricanes, as a signal that it’s time to leave the island. He is also believed to preserve the homes of those he meets."

Texas State Board of Education Rewrites History. Stalin Would be Proud. https://www.dallasobserver.com/news/texas-state-board-of-education-social-studies-standards-debated-11140384

Comment

"In 2010, the Texas State Board of Education voted to change history. Now, students, teachers and activists are trying to fix it. The board held a hearing Tuesday and a first reading of proposed revisions to the social studies curriculum standard on Wednesday, but the night ended in the board making expected changes along party lines. "

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Some of the problems with the 2010 standards include glorifying Confederate soldiers, demoting slavery to a side issue in the Civil War while emphasizing "states' rights" as a cause and encouraging students to think about the “negative consequences” of the civil rights movement. "

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Ron Francis, a social studies teacher at Highland Park Middle School, spoke at the last public hearing on the issue on Tuesday. He said his class uses primary source documents and notices when they do not match the curriculum. Francis said teaching one historical event wrong could have catastrophic impact on how the rest of history is portrayed. “If you don't teach the Civil War correctly, odds are you won't have Reconstruction in the correct context and then the civil rights movement doesn't make much sense because you haven't been teaching about that racial oppression,” Francis said. "

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"The next time the board is scheduled for an overhaul of the social studies standards will be in 2023, but Francis said Texas students don’t have time to leave the school system misinformed about history. “I just think Texas should be better than this,” Francis said. “There’s just no reason why we should be promoting a false narrative on U.S. history.”"

‘How Can I Make Art When People Expect Greatness From Me?’ https://www.thecut.com/2018/09/how-can-i-make-art-when-people-expect-greatness-from-me.html

Comment

"I truly believe I have the potential to make something great in this life. But the problem is I’m so obsessed with being great that I can’t relax. I don’t just read a novel for pleasure; I read so that I can train myself to be a novelist, which is a fine reason to read, but it’s always accompanied by an ache that I’m not currently good enough to write a worthy novel. When I get caught up on what I wish I were accomplishing, I don’t work on any art or writing, I can’t sleep well, and my actual heart muscle hurts."

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"Dear Corked, The irony of being encouraged relentlessly and told that you’re special and force-fed entitlement by the pound is that it’s hard to locate your internal compass outside of the world’s expectations for you. Creating art relies on accessing some slow, patient, deeply rooted understanding of what makes you who you are. You dig for this core belief, and along the way, you discover your fears and anxieties and self-hatred. You dig until your fingers bleed, and everything you find along the way is useful. But if your art is a means to an end — if I make X (something beautiful or special that other people love), I will become Y (someone beautiful and special that other people love) — this process is necessarily confusing and difficult and polluted. While you’re digging, you find something scary or bewildering, and you think, “This is what will prevent me from making anything worthwhile.” And you toss away that fear or that worry or that haunting memory that leads straight to the heart of everything good and real and strong and formidable about you."

 ‎· JustDuckie
Comment

"The narrative of your being SPECIAL, the one that comes from the outside, has seeds of truth to it. You are very smart and talented. That’s great. But it’s also your enemy, in some ways. Because becoming an artist is a long game. It requires faith and patience. And more than anything else — and I know I’ve said this, but I can’t say it enough — becoming an artist requires never, ever, treating art as a means to an end. The end is the work itself. It MUST be the work itself. The work is what you want. There is no end point to reach."
