The University of Rhode Island is located in Kingston, Rhode Island. I created the following panoramic image on a very cold day on the URI campus. I was standing in the middle of the quad on a slightly raised surface therefore the pano has a bit of an arc. The original image is 16,000 pixels wide. To see a slightly smaller image (3,000 pixels wide), click on the photograph.
I’ve been collecting links/stories for a couple weeks since the fall term started…
- University of St. Thomas cancels talk by Desmond Tutu because of comments that were critical of how Israel treats Palestinians. However, non-Nobel Peace Prize winner and verbal hate-crime-a-minute spewer Ann Coulter is perfectly acceptable.
- Latinos fought in WW II and the new documentary (in development for over 6 years) called The War, by Ken Burns initially failed to include ANY Latino voices.
- Addressing racism in Iowa’s legal system – “One of the questions I think white Americans have to deal with is, what am I doing to interrupt racism?”
2006 was an amazing year. Cheers!
