America's Poll Worker Shortage — Shit you should care about

Over half of all poll workers in America are over the age of 61 (U.S. Election Assistance Commission), and with the threat of COVID-19 many are being asked to place their lives on the line to ensure due process for their local community. The election is 4 months away - now is the time to call on other members of our own community to organise, rise to the challenge, and volunteer. The voter horror stories from the Primaries made headlines in the mainstream media after many working-class America

I had the period talk with my dad when I was 11. It wasn't who I expected to teach me about puberty.

"Mija, we need to talk," my dad said while we drove home from the store one evening. By the age of 11, I was used to big talks in the car — just me and him. I knew something awkward was coming, but I tried not to look bothered. We weren't far from home. So whatever it was, surely it couldn't take that long to discuss.

NHS apprenticeship providers face Ofsted pressure — think

Why have several NHS employer providers of apprenticeships struggled when Ofsted calls? The NHS is in the midst of one of its most challenging winters on record. A surge in patient demand and Covid-related rises in staff absence have combined to put health services under extreme pressure.

Central to the challenges facing our health service is the availability of skilled staff wh

RE: NIE - w Schronie rusza antyprzemocowa kampania edukacyjna

Chylący się ku końcowi rok to czas, który zapamiętamy głównie z powodu globalnej pandemii i jej skutków. Dla mnie, jako obserwatora sceny muzyki elektronicznej, to również okres brutalnych rozliczeń. Tylko w tym roku na światło dzienne wyszły co najmniej dwie sprawy związane z molestowaniem seksualnym kobiet, na myśl o których włos jeży się na karku, a nóż otwiera w kieszeni. Chodzi oczywiście o tragicznie zakończonej sprawie Erica Morillo, oraz rozwijającą się dopiero aferę z udziałem Dericka M

2021 Music Superlatives: The Best Albums, Singles, Collabs & More

It was a year of tears, of heaven and hell, a year we’ll remember all too well; a year of red flags, red scarves and red lights; a year that did not make us happier than ever, but had us smokin’ out the window as the social distancing continued.

Can Putin ever be stopped?

Vladimir Putin has been the most effective practitioner of Realpolitik for the past two decades. With an economy about the size of Italy’s, and just as corrupt, he has accomplished his most ambitious goal: returning Russia to the status of a Great Power. Now he’s thrown his chips on the table once more, launching a massive troop build-up on the border with Ukraine and sending still more into Belarus (for “joint exercises”), positioning them just north of Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv.

Molecular and cellular mechanisms of dopamine-mediated behavioral plasticity in the striatum

The striatum is the input structure of the basal ganglia system. By integrating glutamatergic signals from cortical and subcortical regions and dopaminergic signals from mesolimbic nuclei the striatum functions as an important neural substrate for procedural and motor learning as well as for reward-guided behaviors. In addition, striatal activity is significantly altered in pathological conditions in which either a loss of dopamine innervation (Parkinson’s disease) or aberrant dopamine-mediated

Re-reading a Good Book

Re-reading a book feels like visiting your old-self, it feels very nostalgic and you can feel how much you have grown. At least that’s what I felt when I read Lucy & Linh again. I think we can agree that growing up is a difficult journey. Finding your voices, values, and what you stand for surely are no easy feat. It is especially difficult when you are in high school, where you have so much people you want to please and the urge to fit in with the cool crowds is huge. In Lucy & Linh, we follo

You’ve worked the inspiration out of your system, but where do you go from there? When developing a new story, it can be helpful to plot out the different components on a sheet of pap
