the state of Texas with “Texas” written in arabic in the center, printed locally in LA on American Apparel tees.
i’m not responsible for the consequences of wearing this in Texas.
I’d be tempted to wear one of these to my job at the UT Austin International Office. He doesn’t have my size, though.
When I was in eighth grade, I joined the photography club. I borrowed my father’s Nikon EM SLR to take photos with the club. After a couple of months carrying the camera in my backpack, I broke it. That camera has an electronic aperture-priority system that went out of wack. I still feel bad about breaking my father’s camera.
My parents replaced it with the point-and-shoot advertised in the video above. I had no idea that the commercial for the Nikon Tele-Touch 300 would be so “edgy.”
I lost all interest in photography until I was graduating from OU. As I was leaving school, I was envious of all of the photos friends had of parties and events.
I doubt I took the Nikon Tele-Touch 300 with me to Philadelphia, but I wound up with it at some point up there. I shot two or three rolls with it and quickly developed a keen interest in photography. On a trip to the New Jersey Pine Barrens, it stopped working, but I’ve bought several more cameras since then.
A recent project in Boston exemplifies the ways in which big data can be misleading, according to Ohlhausen. The city of Boston launched an app, StreetBump, in July 2012, which allowed Bostonians to locate and report potholes to city government. Ohlhausen pointed to this as an example of the circumstances in which big data findings might require a sharper eye.
Most of the potholes reported via the app were in wealthier, suburban areas — a reflection more of the ubiquity of smart phones in those areas than of an abundance of potholes.
Me: I should warn you that I expect to be eviscerated by the committee…

Me: I don’t know, my proposal defense was pretty offal.
Hooded sweatshirts are the newest request, said St. James’ Rev. Lisa Saunders. ‘The children are extremely cold [in the shelters]. They are not used to central air conditioning.’
In 1955, French sociologist and philosopher Pierre Bourdieu was conscripted into the French Army and deployed to Algeria during the country’s war of independence from France. Bourdieu, who is often read for his work on the reproduction of social power through education, was also a prolific photographer. In a recent blog post from Columbia University Press, they share some of the amazing photos he had captured while in Algeria. Bourdieu previously studied philosophy at France’s prestigious École Normale Supérieure and began to do ethnographic work while in Algeria. After his year of military service, he stayed there to research and teach. Bourdieu notes in an interview that he had signed a contract with Kodak should his academic pursuits prove unfruitful. He began taking photos not only to document what he had seen for reference material, but also to capture scenes he found appealing. Part of this documentation was on the loss and poverty as a result of the war. Bourdieu recalls meeting
I’m a photography enthusiast, and my dissertation centers around Bourdieu’s notion of “informational capital,” so this was a pleasant surprise.
