My partner graduated yesterday! I was in a different state! I might be a bad girlfriend! I use exclamation points a lot! But it’s Monday, so I’m a little more caffeinated and a little less exclamatory…so click some links! Can we diagnose mood disorders via brain scans? Man, I wish we could. Luckily, it looks …

Monday Miscellany

Morning! Pour yourself some coffee and click these links. This week in really cool science: People with anorexia move as if they’re their perceived size. While it’s obviously just one study, could a test like this be used as a screening tool? It gets at the cognitive side, rather than relying on the (mostly behavioral) side of …

[Monday Miscellany] Accessibility, Mental Health, and Atheist Churches?

It’s Monday, and I don’t have work! I’m celebrating by refusing to get out of bed. Chris Hofstader wrote about his experience as a blind man at Women in Secularism.

Monday Miscellany

SkepTech was glorious! (Summary incoming this evening). The anonymity panel was just plain fun, Stephanie gave an amazing talk about psychometrics, and I was happy to be around such enthusiastic, brilliant people. Also, after one week of interning, I’ve mostly figured out how blogging fits in; expect one or more smallish posts each day during …

Link Miscellany: Unconvinced Edition

I’m back! And all of you who dropped off hugs on my last post are wonderful. It’s things like this that keep me convinced that everyone clamoring about how Teh Interwebs is ruining everything are entirely off base. I’ve got some posts planned and in the works, but for now, links and a brief rant! …

Monday Miscellany & Questions

This weekend was lovely (if blogging-less). Ashley was in Chicago! Along with her were Sikivu Hutchinson, Ian Cromwell, Stephanie Zvan, and Anthony Pinn for a panel on real world atheism. You might recognize some of those names. I think they…blog, or something? Who knows. Speaking of blogs, Miri has the liveblog of the panel. Also, …

Chana talks polyamorous marriage. Ability status is important to talk about in relation to health services. (And the mental health community needs to do better.) If you’ve had experiences with ability status interfering with your ability to access care, tell me about it in the comments! You’ve just been severely beaten by your partner, and …
