The cost of getting a lot done despite those things is that I don't have very many links. But the links I have are good, so let's get to them!
First of all, here are some really good things written about the sexual harassment scandals in science: Tenure, She Wrote on how this shouldn't be her job to fix and Mathbionerd's letter to her students. I'm sure many more good things have been written, but I decided to stop reading about this topic, in the interests of reburying unhelpful feelings and getting a boatload of stuff done.
Next, wow, here was another story that hit me in the gut. Ann Friedman on being the "No woman" at work. Let's just say I strongly recognized myself and my work history in that story and move on.
This story about medical bias against women is equally infuriating. It sucks to think that we need to be ready to fight to be taken seriously in the doctor's office, but I guess I'm not surprised we do. Doctors are humans and humans have biases and we're only just starting to try to figure out how to tackle them.
Speaking of annoying medical news: here is a funny story about the not so funny recommendations from the CDC.
In non-annoying medical news: here is an article about some interesting research on aging.
And in political news, here is an interesting analysis of Trump's appeal and the role of ethnic resentment in politics.
I love this:
Happy weekend, everyone!
