new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

males / females have equal math skills

on science daily:

'one portion of the new study looked systematically at 242 articles that assessed the math skills of 1,286,350 people, says chief author janet hyde, a professor of psychology and women's studies at the university of wisconsin-madison.

these studies, all published in english between 1990 and 2007, looked at people from grade school to college and beyond. a second portion of the new study examined the results of several large, long-term scientific studies, including the national assessment of educational progress.

in both cases, hyde says, the difference between the two sexes was so close as to be meaningless.'



  1. Hmm, well, this article was done by a woman so how can we be sure she got her mathematics right?
