This Week in Statehouse Action: Still Screwed edition

We have a new president! But Republicans still run the show in most statehouses, and they’re not going to be shy about using their power to stymie the Biden agenda at every opportunity. And then there’s the next round of redistricting, where GOP gerryma

Fox News asks Jen Psaki about President Biden's outrageous disregard for Dr. Seuss

Not sure where to slot this among the growing list of Fox News pseudo-scandals. Is this glaring omission worse than Barack Obama’s tan suit? That hardly seems possible. The tan suit affair nearly ended us. Our enemies saw our commander in chief arrayed in fine raiments of effete ecru and the gates of hell were flung wide open. Our national credibility was tarnished—one might even say tan-suited—for all eternity. But that was then. After witnessing the stalwart, uber-patriotic leadership of Donald John Trump—who only launched one full-on insurrection attempt during his entire four-year term—we’re forced to endure this disgrace. Are you ready? Joe Biden didn’t mention Dr. Seuss in his statement on Read Across America Day.

California teacher uses racist and stereotypical gesture to describe Asians to her class

Since the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic, crimes against the Asian community have increased globally. In the U.S.—especially because of the spread of misinformation, the use of xenophobic language, and the first case of the virus being traced to China—some individuals have blamed the Asian community for the pandemic. Thousands of people have thus been subjected to not only racist verbal attacks, but physical attacks as well. But these attacks go beyond interactions with strangers: Students across the U.S. have been subject to xenophobia from not only peers, but teachers, as well. In one incident, a video surfaced from a high school in California in which a teacher is using slant eyes, a racist stereotypical gesture, to demonstrate what she says Chinese and Japanese people look like. “If your eyes go up, you’re Chinese,” the Grant High School teacher identified as Nicole Burkett said in a Zoom video obtained by The Sacramento Bee. “If they go down, they’re Japanese. If they’re just straight, you don’t know.”

Archaeologists Uncover a Lavish Marble Floor from Ancient Rome in Southern France

Developers of an apartment building in Nîmes, France, had to halt construction this month when archaeologists discovered an opulent tiled floor that once blanketed a Roman villa, or domu. Dating back to 1-2 A.D., the checkered design is comprised of marble from multiple empirical provinces that’s inlaid into the foundation, a style called opus sectile that was prevalent during ancient times. Spanning multiple feet, the multi-colored pattern is thought to occupy what once was a reception area. More

Dozens of Mushroom Characters Populate a Family Tree in Whimsically Painted Photographs by Jana Paleckova

An affinity for fleshy spores runs in the long line of ancestors laid out in a family tree by Jana Paleckova. The Prague-based artist layers antique photographs with playful oil paintings of spindly enoki or ribbed chanterelle, creating hybrid characters brimming with fungi-fueled personalities. “There are many types of mushrooms, all of which have different characteristics. Just like people,” she says. In a note to Colossal, Paleckova says she was prompted to start the whimsical project when she was flipping through her family’s atlas of fungi. More
