 #remember when sookie was played by a fat actress and there were literally no jokes about her weight on the show? #remember how she wasn’t defined by her weight? #remember how she got to date and get married and have kids and not be just the token funny fat friend of the main character? #remember when she ~got her life together and was happy before lorelai and that wasn’t seen as threatening?

remember how her insecurities (which she did have, because doesn’t everyone?) had nothing to do with her appearance and were more about her artistic failures, her ability to be a mom, her “annoying quirks” she thought Jackson would get tired of?

remember how even though she was often clumsy forgetful and disorganized she was still portrayed as a competent adult? remember how her decision to get married and have kids didn’t diminish her career as a master chef and entrepreneur? remember how she was a bubbly and funny supporting character without being shallow or unintelligent?

BICYCLE ACTIVISM:  Latvian activists from a branch of the bicycle advocacy group Let’s Bike it recently created a visual reminder of the space taken by cars on a typical road. To this end, the group fabricated bamboo skeletons shaped like actual cars and mounted them on their bikes. The activists then cycled around the streets of Riga for several hours to highlight the absurdity of using a large car to move a single person. The stunt was organized as part of European Mobility Week, an ongoing campaign that explores sustainable urban mobility around Europe.

Simple yet clear. Go by bike!

Things I notice:

  • teachers and nurses are not low earners. that would be cooks, cashiers, janitors, customer service reps, secretaries, housekeepers, and teachers’ & nurses’ aides.
  • "confidence intervals": if you click on any job-title in the NPR link, it highlights all occurrences of that job-title in yellow. Some job titles span wide across several income categories (truck drivers, sales supervisors) whereas others (software developers) are more concentrated/narrow in quantile.
  • vagueness of data: Data data data. Data. By the way, did I mention data? There’s a lot of it, you know. But check it out: measurement entails the creation of categories and sometimes those categories are so vague that “sales supervisor” shows up in the $12k–$26k level, whilst “salesperson” shows up in the $207k+ category. Wait, aren’t the supervisors supervising those salespersons? Turns out, “salespersons” show up ≥ “sales supervisors”, who show up ≥ “sales”. Oops.
  • histogram: look at the distance between incomes for each (constant-size) decile bracket. +12, +9, +5, +8, +8, +10, +14, +31, +104, +∞. This matches Catherine Mulbrandon’s picture:

    where the latter leaps capture the convexity of US earning power.
  • jobs you can just get: Many of the dark-teal jobs are ones with a low barrier to entry. The jobs that, if I found myself unemployed and needed money, I could apply and believe that I actually have a chance of being hired—as opposed to the less-than-1% response rate from sending CV’s to large corporations for salaried office work.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
