Another way to address this problem, by the way, is to make the narrative arc of the syllabus circle around to conclude with writing that happened decades ago. This year we are concluding with Hortense Spillers’ masterpiece work of writing “ Mama’s Baby, Papa’s Maybe: An American Grammar Book ” because I want students to see that the narrative of apparent progress embedded in the teaching of feminist theory often rests on some very strategic forgetting, usually of the work of women of color, in particular black women. Ultimately the “what about” question is often answered with some blunt historical facts: X was speaking all along, over here, where other people were listening, stealing and forgetting to footnote. (Which is to say, dear reader, have you cited a woman of color today?)
Do you or your partner have trouble getting off the couch most days? Someone will have to be able to respond quickly to the needs of an infant. And —let's face it — babies and parenting is a lot of work. If one of you is likely to be under-responsible in terms of diaper changes, feedings, waking up in the middle of the night, running errands, cleaning the house etc., the other adult will need to compensate by being over-responsible. And that's not good for maintaining the integrity of any relationship (not to mention setting an example for the little 'un).
Additional info gleaned from the HomePod firmware indicates that the iPhone 8 and iPhone X will feature inductive wireless charging and fast wired charging for the first time. That will make this, potentially, the fastest charging iPhone yet. Other purported features include tap-to-wake functionality and maybe even the ability to recognize expressions on your face. Recently, iOS developer Guilherme Rambo discovered code in the HomePod firmware indicating that the facial recognition sensors on the upcoming iPhone may be used to be able to silence notification sounds when it detects that you are looking at the screen.
