65% convinced I just saw Kim Jong-Il on the subway.

The first rule of polite behavior is to remember that, while you are alone in a cold and meaningless universe, you are far from alone on public transportation.

Regulating Reincarnation —- The State Religious Affairs Bureau Order No.5
In 2007 the People’s Republic of China instituted the State Religious Affairs Bureau Order No.5, also known as “Measures on the Management of the Reincarnation of Living Buddhas”
According to the law, those wishing to be reincarnated and reborn must submit an application and obtain a license with the Chinese Government.  Otherwise the reincarnation will be deemed “illegal and invalid.”  The law was created to regulate Tulku’s, who are Tibetan Buddhist teachers who claim to be reincarnations of past teachers.
Reincarnation Applications have to be submitted to four governmental bodies for approval, specifically the religious affairs department of the provincial-level government, the provincial-level government, State Administration for Religious Affairs, and the State Council.

wtf

I love this paper my disability department gave me. The representative also told me to report ANY kind of ableism, even if it seems minuscule to me.
The top three are hard to read so:
Disability accommodations are rights, not special help. (Ask for what you need. Advocate for yourself.)
You are an important and valuable part of campus diversity. (Diversity includes disability.)
College disability services officers can be gatekeepers. (Most are good allies for students, but some are not. Demand professional, individualized, respectful services and file a complaint if you don’t get them.)

(continued)
4. Feed your soul and your body - recharge your batteries. (Balance your valuable time, energy, and health)
5. Stay focused on your career. (if it won’t help you get a job or maintain your passion for college, don’t bother)
6. Find a community. (Never go at it alone. Consider connecting with others who have disabilities)
7. Universally design your own learning. (Learn how you learn best, and then use your strengths and unique learning style)
8. Never apologize for your disability or your accommodations. (If you apologize, people may think you’re ashamed.)
9. Fight oppression and bullying in any form. (Ableism is just one “ism.” If one of us is oppressed, all of us are oppressed.) 
10. Learn disability history. (Learn about the people and movements that made it possible for you to be in college.)


this is great and so important.

Castel dell’Ovo (The Egg Castle) has a very rich Medieval history. We might say that it is one of the symbols of it’s very beginnings.
On this site was a castle where Romulus Augustus, the last western Roman emperor, was exiled in 476. Roman foundations are still under current walls. Legend has it that Virgil placed a magical egg in the foundations - if it broke, the castle would crumble to pieces, and Naples would fall - hence the name. 
After the Roman era, the castle was raided by Saracens and rebuilt by Roger the Norman.
