"To get a sense of the state of opportunity for women in architecture, consider that the firm getting the most high-profile architectural commissions in the world right now has just one female principal and this web address: big.dk"

"Until 1972 and the advent of Title IX, which forbade gender discrimination in federally funded education programs, most American architecture schools refused to admit women."

"Mt. Fuji tourists tapped to help Yamanashi kids conquer English"

Asahi:

Foreign sightseers coming to see Mount Fuji are helping the six remaining students at an elementary school here scale some heights of their own--those perilous peaks of learning English.

This year, the Ashigawa Elementary School in the Ashigawacho district introduced a course where its pupils have an English exchange with groups of foreign visitors to Mount Fuji after school.

"Oregon Ducks Clinch $23 Million Fanatics Deal"

Bloomberg:

The agreement won’t push Nike to the margins. The brand retains exclusive rights to its Oregon-related intellectual property. Nothing Fanatics makes will use the popular O logo, nor the fighting duck design that often appears on the team’s jerseys.

...

Oregon is looking to avoid the major swings that come with the cyclical success of its sports teams. The school’s royalty revenue increased every year from 2009 to 2014, when the football team played for a national title and quarterback Marcus Mariota won the Heisman Trophy. Since then, however, the football team has hit a rough patch and royalty revenue has fallen 33 percent.

"Digital-first publishers have fallen in love with Gas Station TV"

Digiday:

This week, GSTV partnered with First Media’s Blossom and So Yummy. Earlier this year, GSTV added Cheddar and Chive TV. They join What’s Trending, CNET, Stadium, MLB and The List. The partnerships are part of GSTV’s strategy to show content that can entertain consumers at the pump and in tandem inspire more advertising dollars, instead of just relying on repurposed content from cable networks. Meanwhile, the digital publishers say GSTV has effective distribution, and the Detroit-based team is a lot more enjoyable to work with than others.

“I can’t believe how big it is. Every single day someone sends me a photo of Cheddar on it.

Cheap Old Houses Instagram feed has become too popular



I have a public service announcement to make! I started this feed as a service to gather together a community of people who love and respect older homes that have been neglected and need TLC. I’m super proud of all the homes I’ve helped land in the hands of people who truly love them. That said, the feed has gotten more wildly popular than I could ever have imagined. I’m kind of an idealist, and hate thinking that I’d ever do anything to harm someone else’s good intentions. That said, it’s never been MY intention to create wars over cheap old houses (seriously, I never in my wildest dreams thought that could even be a thing). Please, PLEASE do me a favor: If you are planning to look at a house that is for sale for under $100,000 and have serious intentions to buy it, and if I haven’t already posted it, PLEASE send me a message and let me know and I will NOT post it! 💛💛💛 Thank you!!!!
