Australia to ban ultra-skinny models

Hmmm - I think that they should ban unhealthy models, but there is a range of healthy, including some naturally very skinny. I think that we need to tell people that whatever they are naturally is good, and they should not try to change, as long as they are healthy. Banning people because they are "too skinny" comes from the same philosophy as banning them because they are "too fat" or "too short" or "too tall". All are judgmental and do not support a philosophy of supporting diversity, healthy and normal body ranges. I was very healthy and active in my teen years, but my ribs showed (back and front), and I could have been called unhealthy, but I certainly wasn't.

But I do like the bans on those stupid weight-loss adverts. If only they could mandate them to be replaced by adverts for healthy choices, including diverse models.

Philosophy Factory: A good Ph.D. advisor...

Very good advice. Especially about the disagreements and the ownership of the project! I want mine to be like that.

OpenBook Searches Your Facebook Status Updates

http://www.switched.com/2010/05/17/openbook-searches-your-facebook-status-updates/

I did a search, and wow! My status updates seem to be safe, but so many Trinis are wide open!


OpenBook Searches Your Facebook Status Updates

OpenBook's Search Window
If you're an open tweeter, you know that whatever you tweet is available for general, public consumption. Facebook, by contrast, is a less intrinsically public forum, meaning that even if you update a status on a completely public profile, you can usually rest assured that it won't pop up on some random person's news feed, or in some random person's keyword search. Not anymore, though, thanks to a new site that aims to remind us how open our information is... by exposing it.

Called OpenBook, the new site allows users to search through every single public status update on Facebook, effectively providing lonely Web voyeurs with newfound hours of creepy entertainment. By default, and for no apparent reason, the search engine automatically searches statuses for the term "playing hooky," but also suggests that users try searching for other terms like, "don't tell anyone," "HIV test," and "rectal exam." Fun for the whole family!
