Can you be bilingual with hearing loss?

I would like to learn French as a second language, but I am concerned that it will be extra difficult to learn with my hearing loss - especially with listening to people who speak French (news, film, in person, etc.) because some people talk quite fast. I have to read people's lips sometimes depending how far away they are. [more inside]

Read aloud book suggestions for 4 and 5 year old boys?

Well. Our libraries have all closed now. We have been reading picture books but I think now its time we try to move to chapter books for me to read aloud. I would prefer enough pictures to keep the boys interested, like one per page, or one per every other page? We don't have an e-reader for kids. [more inside]

Canadian funding for PhD in England?

My friend wants to do their PhD in Earth Sciences in the UK -- hopefully UCL or Cambridge for next fall. Yet, funding is very competitive and difficult they said. They are hoping to hear back from a Canadian federal governemnts scholarship that they can take to the UK if they were accepted. However, my friend is also looking for other PhD scholarships to apply to as a Canadian in order to secure PhD funding in England. It is difficult because scholarships are so competitive and not to mention its Cambridge they are aiming for and living expenses are so darn high. They cannot study in the UK unless they secure a lot of scholarship funding. [more inside]

Who is working to end credentialism?

Which people or groups are working against credentialism/education inflation in the US? How can I get involved in this? I'm specifically wanting groups I could join that work towards eliminating unnecessary higher education degree requirements (and therefore making students take out huge loans for jobs that will never pay enough to cover them).

I'm currently in grad school, and I am quickly realizing that the projects and research that seems most interesting to me requires math skills that I don't have.

What magazine/book to gift a friend who wants to learn about geography?

My friend, tired of being the one who 'never knows anything about other countries' in our weekly trivia/quiz get-togethers, is starting a new project to learn about geography. She's bought herself a new notebook and pen, and has a plan to learn about a new country or two each week - and is now totally unsure how to start due to information overload. What magazine or book can I gift her for Christmas that will give her inspiring overviews of the different countries of the world? [more inside]

Should I take the option of take-home exams for law school?

Hey University Students! Some of my law classes this year offer a take-home exam option. I have never written a take-home exam and have been out of school for a decade... I've never even written an exam on a computer! How do you approach a take-home versus classroom exams? Any advice for take-home exams, especially in the context of high-pressure, post-graduate degrees? [more inside]

Books Written for Popular Audience Critiquing “Obesity Epidemic”

I’m looking for a book: (1) written for the mainstream (not academic), (2) critiquing the obesity epidemic as a concept, and (3) that ties this critique to examining larger social issues such as neoliberalism and capitalism. Think “Dopesick” or “Dreamland” but for obesity as a health crisis.
