So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

"Bear," she cried. "I love you. Pull my head off."

“I was talking with a friend, Ivette González-Alé, about fat identity and she asked, “fat according to whom?” She said her body is just like everyone else in her family; their indigeneity forms a body foreign to white standards of height/weight/body fat distribution. Fatness is set against white bodies, with no consideration for other groups, creating an identity irrelevant to her brown body.”

I didn’t buy any conventional souvenirs while traveling in Europe. They don’t appeal to me. I did get about half a dozen books though. These are always my weakness when traveling. We heard about this great new book about the graphics coming out of Cuba and we were lucky to find a copy. There are some really fantastic photos of folks working in their studios.

Australian scientists have developed a pair of anti-shark wetsuits that make divers appear invisible by camouflaging their bodies in the sea and trick sharks into thinking surfers are poisonous. A team of researchers from the University of Western Australia joined forces with designers from  Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) to create the suits. The blue pattern of the Elude suit can’t be seen by the shark because the fish are colour blind. While the stripes on the Diverter suit mimic the colours of poisonous fish to warn the sharks off.

YOU SEE THIS IS FANTASTIC. THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO. NOT KILL SHARKS BECAUSE THEY’RE CURIOUS AND ATTACK US. WE’RE IN THEIR WATERS. WE’RE MAKING THEIR HUNTING GROUNDS SMALLER.

… See this is one of those so simple it’s brilliant solutions. Want to not get bit by a shark? Do what every other animal in the ocean does to avoid getting eaten.

Linguistic Isolation in NYC: Not All Latin American Immigrants Speak Spanish


Because of the way they look, people assume they speak Spanish, which can be confusing for many Latin American immigrants who speak only an indigenous language.
