Studying, wherefore art thou?

Day four of my adudlt reaction to minor childhood diseases, and I am now much more mentally alert and ablt to think of sorting out my reading and assignments for the next few weeks.

A friend sent a link to a radio interview that she recently broadcast, which starts at around 41 minutes.  It’s an interesting interview, but the journalists seemed a bit concerned about whether there was a clash of values that enabled Crystal to achieve what she has.  I had never thought of radio journalists as gate keepers of social value systems, but they clearly seem to be very aware of that side of their work.

I think in Australia it is teachers who act as gate keepers and journalists are more independent and risk-taking.  In any case, my friend seemed able to hold her own with the journalists and they did support her really well.
