1. "Students are now taught to ignore human suffering and to focus mainly on their own self-interests and by doing so they are being educated to exist in a political and moral vacuum. Education under neoliberalism is a form of radical depoliticization, one that kills the radical imagination and the hope for a world that is more just equal, and democratic society."

  5. "Race matters. Race matters in part because of the long history of racial minorities’ being denied access to the political process.

    Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter what neighborhood he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, ‘No, where are you really from?’

    The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the Constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination."

    "I am an Inuit seal meat eater, and my fur is ethical," wrote Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, bundled in a sealskin coat, pants and boots. She also wrote a letter to DeGeneres and posted it online.

    Samsung vowed to donate $1 for every retweet of DeGeneres’ celebrity-packed Oscars selfie to a charity of her choice. She raised $1.5 million for the Humane Society of the United States, which campaigns annually against Canada’s seal hunt.

    The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s website calls the seal hunt “one of the most atrocious and inhumane acts against animals allowed by any government.”

    The Inuit have long defended the hunt as a sustainable practice, deeply rooted in Inuit culture, which helps feed people in a region plagued by hunger.

    "The meat feeds families, which is important to an area where many households have identified that they face issues of food insecurity," said Sandi Vincent, who posted her own sealfie Thursday.

    The pelts also come in handy in the cold northern climate and provide a needed source of income, she said. She also countered the idea of the hunt as “inhumane.”

    "In Inuit culture, it is believed seals and other animals have souls and offer themselves to you. Humanely and with gratitude we accepted this gift," she said, reminiscing about catching her first seal at age 15.

    Language Patterns: Spanish and Portuguese 

    Noticing patterns from Spanish -> Portuguese helped me improve really quickly, because I would be able to guess a word in Portuguese based on the patterns I knew and the word I knew in Spanish. 

    All words that are similar (no matter what language) may be an exception though, so it’s not always 100% reliable. 

    This also helps with trying to figure out pronunciation. The first one that comes to mind is the ñ/nh example. They sound similar except one is with a different accent. 

    *Note: In the –les/–is chart, there’s the word, “legais” under Portuguese. It means “legal” but is used frequently as “cool” in Brazil. 
    Example: Você é muito legal (singular), Vocês são muito legais (plural)
