Myth of the Gendered Brain

Meet the neuroscientist shattering the myth of the gendered brain | Science | The Guardian
When she is not in the lab using state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques to study developmental disorders such as autism, she is out in the world, debunking the “pernicious” sex differences myth: the idea that you can “sex” a brain or that there is such a thing as a male brain and a female brain.

Fantastic article. Pair with the writing of Oliver Sacks about neural plasticity. Then look at all of education in a whole new light. Then realize that it also puts our self view in a whole different light. Excellent.

Designers don’t have power to stop extinction says Paola Antonelli
Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, the XXII Triennale di Milano, will bring together 120 architecture and design projects from the last 30 years that explore humankind’s fractured relationship with the planet.

The whole interview is worth reading, because it is truly perspective changing.

Video Library

Fundraiser by Casey St. Charnez : Help Lisa Harris Keep Video Library Going!
Lisa S. Harris opened Video Library in August, 1981, as Santa Fe’s 1st video rental boutique. Today, the Vid is the last video store in town, still serving the film buff audience after all these years. It has long been a destination for locals to meet up at the counter, and discuss movies, dogs, and life itself.

In 1981 Video Library was the first video rental store in Santa Fe. A few years later, after big chains like Hastings and Blockbuster moved in, Video Library was the best video rental store. And now Video Library is the only video rental store in Santa Fe.

The selection of independent American productions and international films is outstanding, as is the knowledge of the staff. As you can tell I am a huge fan of this retro Video store. Actually it is not retro, because it has simply never changed since it opened 37 years ago, except to add more movies, of course…

If you live in Santa Fe you ought to check it out and, perhaps, rent a movie.
