We continue to be blown away by the awesome (and completely edible) 3D-printed sugar sculptures created by The Sugar Lab team at 3D Systems (previously featured here). Pictured here are some of their geometric sugar cubes, ornate cake toppers, gorgeous sculptural pieces and a futuristic vase that feels like it belongs in an episode of Star Trek. They were all created using the ChefJet™ series of kitchen-ready 3D printers for edibles, which are expected to be on the market in the second half of 2014.

The Sugar Lab is currently had some of their 3D printed confections available for purchase via Cubify.

Bruce Coville Appreciation Post

Okay, I lied. I’m actually re-reading Bruce Coville’s Alien Ate My Homework. Mostly because I wanted to find this particular exchange between a human and an alien that in hindsight was my first exposure to preferred pronouns:

Here is another music post, this time from Guy Durosier et son orchestre. If you are Haitian, I am convinced both your parents and grandparents know, or at least are familiar, with this song. If you are not Haitian, this is still a wonderful piece to listen to, recorded in Haitian Creole in the late 1950s.

"A Black man holding a wallet is more likely to be shot by the police than a White man holding a gun."

-

In 2002, a study by Joshua Correll and colleagues, called The Police Officer’s Dilemma, revealed a phenomenon also known as shooter-bias 

The study found that people hesitated longer to shoot an armed white target (and they were more likely to accidentally not shoot). Participants were quicker and more accurate with black armed targets but there were more “false alarms” (shooting them when they were unarmed). These effects were present even though participants did not hold any explicit discriminatory views and wanted to treat all targets fairly

You’ve got to be kidding me. That’s total bullshit. If you’re going to shoot an unarmed black person and then claim to not have discriminatory views …What a crock of shit.

Yeah, that’s the most contradictory statement… like, let’s be honest here.

(via siddharthasmama)

It’s no contradictory that’s how racism works nowadays . Colorblind racism …they took a survey which showed no overt “I hate black people out and loud ” racism but took a test proving aversive racism which is where you look for a reason to dislike a black person as opposed to hating then straight out , and those reasons are usually stereotypical (black men being dangerous ) or cultural

"When 12-year-old girls are watching something like the CW’s long-running campy drama One Tree Hill (which aired from 2003-2012), in which actors like 25-year-old Hilarie Burton played 17-year-old cheerleader Peyton Sawyer, they’re not seeing an accurate portrayal of their future on screen. They’re seeing a glamorized vision of some executive’s idealized version of high school instead. When a real 16-year-old cheerleader flips on the CW and sees fellow pompom shakers who look like Burton or costar Sophia Bush, also well beyond her high school years, they’re looking at themselves at wondering why they don’t look like that in their uniform. Here’s the secret: they didn’t when they were 16, either."

This is a fairly important notation. We always talk, about representation, but the portrayal of teenagers by fully grown adults is overlooked always as irrelevant.

On April 19, 1943, 70 years ago, the first rebellion in occupied Europe broke out–the Jewish rebellion. I wasn’t part of it. As a courier, I had been arrested during resistance operations in Kharkov and had been brought to Auschwitz a number of months earlier.

All of my nearest, most beloved comrades fought from the rooftops, in the fires, from the bunkers. Most of them perished. It hurts me that I can no longer remember all their names. We memorialize only a few. But in my heart, I am not parted from them, from the forgotten…

Continue the rebellion. A different rebellion of the here and now against evil, even the evil befalling our own and only beloved country. Rebel against racism and violence and hatred of those who are different. Against inequality, economic gaps, poverty, greed and corruption…Rebel against the occupation. No—it is forbidden for us to rule over another people, to oppress another.

Chavka Fulman-Raban, one of the last remaining survivors of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising by Jews against Nazi occupiers, expressing solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for liberation.

http://socialistworker.org/2014/07/21/israels-terrorist-rampage

 … About a year ago, Chavka Fulman-Raban gave a speech at the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising about the struggle against exploitation and oppression, including Israel’s occupation of Palestine. In the speech [excerpted above], she recalled how the scale of the Nazi’s extermination program became clear to the Jews of Poland—and then the urgency with which the Jewish resistance sought arms to resist them.
