Alexina's curator insight, October 19, 2013 1:32 PM

There is an greatly increased demand for trained librarians with knowledge about digital libraries, ebooks, creating physical and digital archives. Today's and tomorrow's librarians have to be part techie. Being a librarian does NOT mean you only work for a library. Any organization that needs to organize information and present it digitally is a prime career location for librarians with the right skills. Two of the three American Library Association (ALA) accredited master degree programs in California teach these skills. My alma mater, San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science <http://www.ala.org/cfapps/lisdir/listing.cfm?id=1408&gt;, which has totally online programs, is in the forefront of teaching both technical skills needed and traditional librarian skills. The infographic was created for the very new University of Southern California's online Master of Manaagement in Library and Information Science http://librarysciencedegree.usc.edu/

We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation – Rising Up with Sonali | digital divide information | Scoop.it
FEATURING JEFF CHANG – The US Presidential election this year has inspired severe levels of anxiety, particularly among people of color who have borne the brunt of violent rhetoric from Donald Trump and his cohorts. If we believe the racist and xenophobic rhetoric, we deserve to be banned from entering the country, or pushed behind a wall, or imprisoned, or priced out of our homes. And if we are poor we deserve to remain poor. It is a difficult moment indeed.

Cotton Candy Grapes?!?

Cotton Candy Grapes?!? | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 20, 3:03 PM

After years of seeing fruit-flavored candy, we are now seeing candy-flavored fruit. The company Grapery is very careful to highlight that these patented fruit varieties are not GMOs, but the cotton candy flavored grapes are cross pollinated by hand (by fruit geneticists). You can watch this 4 minute CBS video about the agricultural production and marketing of this new product. Yes, I've experimented with these at a friend's house, and they really do taste like cotton candy (and no, I'm not planning on purchasing any).     

 

Questions to Ponder: Does this make you leery about eating this or totally excited to try it? How come?  Why is the company so adamant to state that these grapes are non-GMO? According to the video, what are the primary concerns of most grape producers and how does that contrast with this company?

Here is another example of cultural commodification and cultural appropriation.  As stated in the article, there is nothing illegal in this, but most companies stay away because the negative publicity for being sleazy is a enough of a cultural and economic deterrent to conform to the more accepted norms of society.

When the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture was established in 2003, it had no collection. Since then, museum leaders have acquired approximately 40,000 objects, of which some 3,500 will be on view. They document the tragedy and triumph of the African American experience, from the Colonial era of slavery to the election of the nation’s first African American president. Here are 36 of the most emotionally and historically resonant treasures in the collection that no visitor should miss.

The Neglected Link in the High-School-to-College Pipeline

The Neglected Link in the High-School-to-College Pipeline | digital divide information | Scoop.it
The significance of counseling is under-recognized by the public. A recent national survey asked what, if taxes were raised to improve local public schools, the money should be spent on first. Just over a third of the respondents said teachers; supplies came next, followed by classes and extracurriculars, infrastructure, and new schools. Counselors came last, with just 6 percent of the sample. David Hawkins of the National Association of College Admissions Counselors identifies counseling as the third and most-neglected component of increasing access to college, alongside financial support and equitable access to a challenging school curriculum.

Brains in Pain Cannot Learn! - @Edutopia

Brains in Pain Cannot Learn! - @Edutopia | digital divide information | Scoop.it

E"ducators and students are carrying in much more than backpacks, car keys, conversations, partially-completed homework, and outward laughter. Buried deep in the brain's limbic system is an emotional switching station called the amygdala, and it is here that our human survival and emotional messages are subconsciously prioritized and learned. We continually scan environments for feelings of connectedness and safety. I am learning that the students who look oppositional, defiant, or aloof may be exhibiting negative behavior because they are in pain and presenting their stress response.

Over 29 percent of young people in the U.S., ages 9-17, are affected by anxiety and depression disorders (PDF). The thinking lobes in the prefrontal cortex shut down when a brain is in pain."
