In Defense of Art School Graduates
Fstoppers
What's wrong with our industry that we are so quick to belittle formal education? Whenever the topic of an art degree arises, there's an angry mob that amasses, collectively chanting how "useless" a degree is in photography and that the best school to learn from is the University of Hard Knocks. To really understand this issue, we have to first step back and look at the value of art and why photographers are so polarized on the term.

Why You (Yes, You!) Should Write Book Reviews
Inside Higher Ed
The conventional wisdom is that graduate students shouldn't take time to write academic book reviews. There's just not enough in it for them, the thinking goes. As a sociologist who has studied the publishing industry, I disagree with the dismissive attitude many have toward book reviewing.

Best Way for Professors to Get Good Student Evaluations? Be Male
Slate
Many in academia have long known about how the practice of student evaluations of professors is inherently biased against women. Just as polling data continues to show that a majority of Americans think being a man automatically makes you better in the boss department, many professors worry that students automatically rate male professors as smarter, more authoritative, and more awesome overall just because they are men. Now, a new study shows that there is good reason for that concern.

What You Need to Know before Donating Art
Wall Street Journal
For investors thinking about donating art, the most important thing to know is this: It isn't as simple as ... donating art. The benefits of a donation are clear. The owners may have a fondness for a particular museum or university they have in mind as a recipient, for instance. And the ego gratification is powerful. But ego aside, donors have a lot of factors to consider before making a decision.

Acrylics on Plastics
Just Paint
When a liquid comes into contact with any solid, new interfaces or boundaries are generated between these dissimilar materials. Although many factors exist which will promote or inhibit adhesion of the acrylic paint onto solid plastic, the most important element is the ability of the liquid to "wet-out" the solid onto which it is painted.
