Online education is pretty special for two reasons. One is that you can get the very best lecture in the world and wherever you are, whenever you want, you can connect to that lecture. The other is this interactivity, where if you know a topic, you can kind of skip over it. Or if you’re confused about it, [the area] where you’re confused can be analyzed by software.
I have found, for example, that if I have to write upon sum rather difficult topic, the best plan is to think about it with very great intensity-the greatest intensity of which I am capable-for a few hours or days, and at the end of that time give orders, so to speak (to my subconscious mind) that the work is to proceed underground. After some months I return consciously to the topic and find that the work has been done.
Those of us who think about what we eat, how it’s grown, those of us who care about the environmental impact of food – we’ve been educated by fabulous books, like Fast Food Nation and documentaries like Food Inc. But despite these and other great projects that shine a critical light on the topic, every year the food industry spends literally tens of millions of dollars to shape the public conversation about our food system.
Don’t believe everything you read. It’s very difficult to be accepting of our own bodies. This topic deserves it’s own book, but since I’m not qualified to write it, I won’t. Instead I’ll just say this: The pictures staring out at you from the supermarket checkout stands, the images we are all supposed to aspire to? They lie
We must continually remind students in the classroom that expression of different opinions and dissenting ideas affirms the intellectual process. We should forcefully explain that our role is not to teach them to think as we do but rather to teach them, by example, the importance of taking a stance that is rooted in rigorous engagement with the full range of ideas about a topic.
I think that the work that’s left to be done – and I see the end in sight at this point – is to just let go and stop talking about it. It’s definitely ‘stop talking about the whole size thing.’ I don’t go to my girlfriend’s house and say, ‘Hey, I’m your big friend, let’s talk about big things.’ It’s not a topic of conversation within my friend group – I’m ready for society, Hollywood, the press, magazines, everyone, to just catch up and say, ‘These women are just like the women we’ve been using for so long. Let’s just throw them into the mix and stop talking about it.’
Who is the best rapper ever? I’ll probably have to say Eminem. I would definitely say Eminem. He came from a whole another culture, literally. Mastered it, outsold everybody and he did every kind of record imaginable. He could take any topic and make a song out of it. I haven’t seen any artist do that yet.
The issue of comparative performances can be regarded as settled to-day, both scientifically and practically. Though differences in attitudes between men and women still form a favorite topic of drawing-room conversation … women’s abilities are no longer seriously in doubt. These discussions rather seem to be a kind of rearguard action carried on after the main battle has been decided.
Throughout my career, I’ve always portrayed characters that were humorous, but also weren’t afraid to speak their minds, especially when it came to racy or controversial topics. I think this struck a chord with the LGBT community. We both also share a very strong love for animals. When you combine the two, it’s a very strong match.
I like to talk about very different topics. I like to jump around a lot because I don’t want people to come see me and then for an hour I tell jokes about being a little person.
