I'm posting these links as part of an ongoing conversation between me & (e:Terry) but also informed by various conversations with/between (e:bluevelevetjac)k and (e:yesthatcasey).

The classic piece by Peggy McIntosh:

A more modern take using gaming as a metaphor:

I heard an excellent piece on The Best of the Left about white privilege but couldn't find the actual story... maybe I'll spend some time tomorrow searching more.

Peace & love

$30 suggested donation, scholarships available.

To register, contact Vivan at the Sister Karen Center

A review from the last workshop:

Such a wonderful, rich experience. If you had told me that such a diverse bunch of people could have bonded like we did, I would have laughed in your face. The learning was deep AND broad. Plus, the emotional connections were amazing! Yet it was fun too! L & L will always bring a smile to my face. ( To know what L & L is you have to come to a workshop ;-) )

Peace & bike riding

(E:Terry) & I rode our bikes downtown this afternoon, hoping to go to Fables, the library cafe, for lunch, but of course they close at 3 and we were too late. We went to Washington Market instead. This evening, we rode all the way to Flying Bison for a work-related event mostly on the bike path along the river. It was gorgeous! Perfect weather. A little stinky... The work-ish event continued at Sun Market, a Burmese & Thai restaurant at 1989 Niagara St. They're currently reconstructing the space into a real restaurant, so the seating is limited. Very yummy, you have to check it out! We tried the ginger salad, deep fried gourds, samusa, iced lemon tea, iced coffee, and the green curry with tofu.

The library had a cool high school art class project on display.

Bees & Cell phones?

(e:Terry) says he logged 48 hours of work this week; I was there for most of it AND I studied. I'm so sick of this. I slept through most of yesterday - took a little nap that lasted about six hours. At least we went to beer club on Wednesday. Next one is 3/14 - heads up to (e:MrMike) and (e:Uncutsaniflush)! Get your tickets early at Mr. Goodbar. March features stouts.

Did anyone else see this news?

Why a mobile phone ring may make bees buzz off: Insects infuriated by handset signals

Signals from mobile phones could be partly to blame for the mysterious deaths of honeybees, new research shows.
In the first experiment of its kind, a bee expert placed a mobile phone underneath a hive and then carefully monitored the reaction of the workers.
The bees were able to tell when the handsets were making and receiving calls, and responded by making the high pitched squeaks that usually signal the start of swarming.
