Ten Things for Sunday

Here are our internet gems for the week!

  1. We are proud to draw attention to Carbon Trace Production’s Summer intern, Chris Gawat
  2. Time to make lemonade. Carbon Trace Production’s founder Andy Cline is using the opportunity the coronavirus crisis has created to begin shifting his teaching and evaluating. Goodbye tests. Hello, portfolios.
  3. We love a good, honest Snopes article. This one is about that petri dish photo that has been sweeping social media.
  4. On that note, The Carbon Trace Team is starting back up filming with every one of us wearing a mask. As we start production again, we are thinking about what works and what will not moving forward.
  5. People who live in our home base of Springfield, Missouri, continue to show up. We all have to keep the momentum going, we have to keep having those uncomfortable conversations, and we have to stay informed.
  6. Also, moving forward means planning for success, as our Board Member Jym Wilson explains.
  7. I don’t know if I have ever seen a quilt I like more than these from Rosie Lee Thompson.
  8. We are celebrating our Supreme Court victory this week, protecting our LGBTQ+ friends in the workplace and public. The ACLU’s deputy director for trans justice, Chase Strangio, a trans man, who called this case his “baby.” 
  9. Watch this wife and husband duo work the timber using only their prized donkey.
  10. The whole student team has worked tirelessly on the upcoming film “Songs from the Street.” Help them reach their goals today
