“We propose that an alternative to flipping an entire course is to only flip some components of the course. Selectively flipping only the most challenging content can address both of the above-noted issues. It makes the work involved in creating the flipped content less overwhelming for instructors because they do not have to flip the entire course, and it means that instructors have more options to modify the delivery of the course content depending on its level of complexity.”

The Vision – Idle No More

“We are an Indigenous feminist organization. This generation of young Native people are doing things that weren’t hip or cool in the ’50s and ’60s and ’70s, during the Red Power movement. They’re addressing things such as heteropatriarchy and the use of tradition in their own communities as a tool of oppression. A lot of our young people are nonbinary, they’re gender nonconforming, they’re queer. They’re two-spirit [an umbrella term for Indigenous peoples who do not subscribe to Western gender binaries and heteronormative sexuality]. That element of our societies was one of the first things to be almost annihilated and extinguished, because it represented an alternative political order. There’s a reason why these generals and politicians chose our men to sign treaties and negotiate. They used our men as a tool of conquest. So we’ve inherited that in our own communities. It relates to the work that we do with our unsheltered relatives on the street, who are cast out of their communities for being trans or queer.”

What Climate Organizers Can Learn From Two Centuries of Indigenous Resistance

“a racialized affect called “animatedness,” and a paradoxical synthesis of shock and boredom called “stuplimity.”

“The 17.6 MeV of fusion energy from each reaction comes directly from the difference in mass between the deuteron + triton and the helium + neutron masses. From conservation of momentum the energy is split roughly 4 : 1 between the lighter neutron and the fourfold heavier helium, so that the neutron energy is the famous 14.1 MeV and the alpha particle carries the remaining 3.5 MeV. There are two reaction products. The neutron (n) has the most energy, which may be used to heat up a water jacket to make electricity and can also be used to produce more tritium from the breeding reaction. The stable helium nucleus—or alpha particle—carries the remaining 3.5 MeV of energy, but its charge means that it interacts with the electrons in the plasma and gives up its energy rapidly, so helping to sustain the ion temperature and the fusion reaction.”
