Excellent and detailed piece by Paul Krugman about the failure of Austerian economics, why it happened, how we should have avoided it, and how we can stop it. via DiigoRead the article Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

A new beginning? 1

I got a notification today saying that I have been accepted into the Graduate Entry Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) today. At Charles Sturt University, via Distance Education. Should be good. Yes, it looks like I’m taking the path to a teacher. I like to think that it’s a path I’ve been on already, and this ...

Armor And Anxiety: Tony Stark Is The New Captain America : Monkey See : NPR

Really excellent piece on Iron Man 3, looking at issues of national identity, heroism and the nature of characters. Great look at Iron Man 3 and The Avengers. Best piece I’ve read on the movie, very positive and smart. via DiigoRead the article Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

This doesn’t end here

I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s kind of counter-productive to make me self write here every single day, no matter whether there is something to say or not. I know I’ve pushed it at times anyway, but I guess I kept it up until now. And my writing energy really needs to be pushed ...

I need to write more

The political debate gets nauseous

So now we might need a “levy” for the National Disability Insurance Scheme. In some ways, if people thought taxes for funding society were still worth it (as opposed to the new model of “everyone for themselves and screw the rest of you”) we wouldn’t need this. ┬áBut the levy model comes about because every ...

Suckers for punishment

Another Monday, another episode of Q&A where the Twitterverse had a collective freakout. I rarely watch it, for so many reasons, but you get a great idea of what is happening just by watching the Twitter feed anyway. Tonight seemed much worse than usual… I think my friends are getting sick of the show finally! ...

Last day off…

I’m back at school tomorrow, which I’ve virtually had two weeks off from… excepting three very quiet days there of course. At least it will be a quiet start, with two staff development days before any students return! Right now, I’m wavering between deeply optimistic and excited, and angry, annoyed and deeply sarcastic, depending on ...
