Private Bodies, Public Texts: A Salon In Honor Of Karla FC Holloway
Panelists: Karla FC Holloway, Tina Campt, Farah Griffin, Saidiya Hartman, Rebecca Jordan-Young, and Alondra Nelson
These scholars, whose expertise lies at the cross-section of law, race, gender, and bioethics, respond to Karla FC Holloway’s book, Private Bodies, Public Texts: Race, Gender, and a Cultural Bioethics (Duke University Press, 2011), an important and groundbreaking work that examines instances where medical issues and information that would usually be seen as intimate, private matters are forced into the public sphere, calling for a new cultural bioethics that attends to the complex histories of race, gender, and class in the US.

#33B Notes: Tonight, I learned how to use Keynote, then made a Keynote presentation. My eyes hurt, my right pinky thumb is numb, and I am pleased with this presentation. It was not until I put this together that I realized that despite my self-loathing and doubt, I got a good deal of work done.

MIT creates camera that shoots 1 trillion fps and can see light in motion
MIT has created a camera that can actually view light in motion. By firing trillions of pulses of light and syncing their cameras shutter, they can create a video that shows how light moves through space and reacts to mass. By recording this amazing detail, these cameras can actually see into objects and around corners by monitoring the way the light bounces off and around an object.
Holy crap, this is so cool. Go MIT!
i liked this video without the TED talk attached to it.
it doesn’t make it any less incredible, though.
