Permission to sleep! (It'll increase your productivity in the long run!)

http://www.insidehighered.com/advice/2013/03/01/essay-why-academics-need-get-enough-sleep

I’m more or less perpetually awed by how poorly we academics take care of ourselves much of the time. Sometimes I think that, almost by definition, the typical scholar-teacher is a neurotic who routinely puts work before his or her own health. Unnecessarily. Perhaps this is why I frequently find mys...

When Beauty Is Not Truth - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The NEW YORK TIMES follows three low-income students through the challenges of their college careers.

It adds to fears over recent evidence suggesting that low-income Americans have lower chances of upward mobility than counterparts in Canada and Western Europe."
