Monday Link Encyclopedia

Here is what an honest job ad for am academic position looks like.

A really great article about a successful penis transplant.

NYTimes finally publishes a great editorial on opioid overprescription.

  3. This is not a link, but I wanted to share something. I’m visiting a friend who’s chair at a top 10 engineering department. He collectively meets with junior faculty every few months where he listens to their problems and asks them for ways in which he can support their work. He says in the past few years it’s been insane. Most of them break drown and cry (both men and women). They cry that they’re not good enough to get tenure, they cry they’re not good enough, period. He’s being literally asked to be a mother. ‘Just tell me I’m good enough’. Not funding, not lab space, but soothing words is what they want

    Newly released documents show Virginia’s largest public university granted the conservative Charles Koch Foundation a say in the hiring and firing of professors in exchange for millions of dollars in donations.

    The documents’ release follows years of denials from George Mason University that the donations inhibit academic freedom.

  5. Very interesting, the concept of anti-citizen. But I also see this in people here. I totally see why USSR / similar create this, but it seems that liquid life (or whatever it is) also creates a version of it.
