John McPhee : basketball :: ____________ : archery

Who are some good nonfiction writers covering archery? I've read Zen in the Art of Archery and the Reeves Wiedeman piece in Harper's. What else is out there? I'm looking less for Lanny Bassham and more for John McPhee.

Yoko Ono's Voice Piece for Soprano

Yoko Ono wrote Voice Piece for Soprano in 1961. I've read Grapefruit and am familiar with her instruction pieces. However, I've been trying to find out more specific info about this piece. Most of my search results refer to the more recent MOMA exhibition, but I'm looking for information about her writing it or performing it before then, as well as anything she may have said about it. I am not looking for analysis of it, just history.

Collectible Tarot/Oracle/Something Cards from the 2000s

When I was in middle school (early 2000s) I found these neat cardboard packets of oracle/tarot-esque cards that had maybe 5-7 cards per packet along with a beautiful paper fortune teller/cootie catcher in the same art style. For the sake of scratching a mind itch, I'd love to find a photo or two of these cards. Any takers want to help me search? [more inside]

My turn to play "Name That Cultural Thing"

AskMe has proven good at identifying random things in the past - can you help me track down this half-remembered cartoon I saw? I believe I saw it on TV in the 90s as part of an animation festival, and I think it was....Scandinavian, and dealt with a family with a little girl who was either mentally challenged or on the spectrum.

Built-in occupational survey gender bias?

It is often stated - usually for the purpose of saying that we don't need more women in STEM careers - that the most reliable difference between men and women is that "men are more interested in things and women are more interested in people." Cordelia Fine and Virginia Valian have criticized this conclusion based on the limitations of the surveys used to determine it. I'm having trouble accessing the surveys, as they all seem to be products behind paywalls. Can anyone who does have access expand on the accuracy and relevance of their criticisms? [more inside]

Looking for reputable & ethical study resources for a specific MCP exam

I need to line up resources for some people to prep for, and take, Exam 70-348. Does anyone have experience with this one? What online resources should I direct us to for study and prep? There seems to be a LOT of noise out there if you google the exam number, but not a lot of analysis or information about which of these organizations are worth paying. (There are a few prior questions here about MCP stuff generally, but nothing recent.)
