The Daily Word In Bossy Vaginas, Scottish Geese and Expensive Chile

By Amelia Olson [ Thu Feb 5 2015 2:54 PM ]
The Daily Word

Your vagina is a boss!

If you’re a teen who texts and drives, a New Mexican college student is in the process of releasing an app that will track every move you make while operating a vehicle!

The University of Vermont acknowledges a third gender and allows students to be identified by their chosen first name, even if they have not legally changed their name yet. They also honor preferred pronouns. AKA VERMONT RULES.

The woman who famously called Angelina Jolie a “talentless brat” (um, hasn’t she seen Hackers?) stepped down from her position at Sony.

A totally irrelevant piece about Scottish geese.

There is no price too high to keep us from our chile, but dammit if we don’t get more rain.

The Daily Word in Coca-Cola's vault, Bernalillo same-sex hearing and "sex boxes" in Switzerland

By Mark Lopez [ Mon Aug 26 2013 10:33 AM ]
The Daily Word

The United States and Britain team up to show Syria's government that when you “cross a line” (referring to a gas attack that killed at least 355 people, though some reports have stated the death toll was over 1,000), the world is going to get involved.

Police in Spokane, Wash., have arrested a second teenage suspect in the fatal beating of 88-year-old Delbert Belton, who was a WWII veteran.

After being found guilty last week for the Fort Hood shooting spree four years ago, the sentencing phase of Maj. Nidal Hasan's trial starts today.

There's a Coca-Cola vault? I want to go to there.

In preparation for a hearing this afternoon on same-sex marriage, Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver has printed 1,000 same-sex marriage licenses.

Kids at Joy Junction learn how to capture their wishes and dreams with a camera via the Pictures of Hope program.

Mayor Richard Berry's office initiates the "Equity in Pay Task Force," aimed at closing the wage gap between men and women.

For those who find themselves taking long drives and suddenly getting the urge to have sex, Zurich, Switzerland now has “sex boxes” where people can drive up and give it a go. It's also safer for the prostitutes.

And now, the big question: Do we really want to see a John Lennon clone?

Specter of sonic sexism looms

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Nov 27 2012 1:15 PM ]

Sexism in the music industry is alive and well. But it’s almost 2013, you might say. We’re more than a half-century removed from the height of ’50s paternalism. Sadly, we’re not quite as distanced from the weaker-sex mentality as we’d like to think. Whether exploring industrial music, producing or music-related subcultures, misogyny still patiently waits to be acknowledged and abolished. We chatted with Burqueña noisemakers and aural curators about their experiences with sexism in our burg. Read all about it in Burqueñas Talk Musical Misogyny.
