@bgcarlisle let's also add that the subtle difference between the English vowel sounds for a and e is beyond the ken of most foreigners, whomst are more likely to happen into situations where personal and personnel matters are confused

Marc Jones boosted

The English language: Let's make "a personal matter" and "a personnel matter" mean pretty much the opposite thing, and the only difference in pronunciation between them be which syllable is stressed

The English language: *Rubs hands together excitedly*

How can we on scholar help each other during this time?

I know a lot of us are still pressured to produce research, teach, and everything else.
What are some ways that we could use this platform to help each other deal with typical academic nightmares that are now amplified?

Hi, everyone! I am a philosophy student and I am currently in the process of writing my MA thesis on the topic of Spinoza and social engineering. My further research interests include the history of modern philosophy, Marxist theory, and critical theory. Feel free to follow me! 😀

I told my students that there is gatekeeping in academic publishing. Stunned silence.

The moment students learn that academia is not as transgressive as they think is a hard time.

Making a web interface for my vowel study testing and lessons because recruiting participants was so difficult. I now remember why I chose not to try my hand at web design/web dev as a career. Time and patience.

UC Santa Cruz just fired 54 TAs for participating in a wildcat strike, withholding fall quarter grades, and demanding a cost of living adjustment.
