What's on my mind? - FB Inc. wants to know...
Well, time to sing and dance again after having submitted the final grades of 4 classes of Diversity Studies (both online and face-to-face), 1 class of Art Appreciation, 1 Introduction to Sociology, and 1 transfer level of Sociology. Majority of students did very well. I enjoyed various challenges throughout this academic year!
Patting on my own back !

Xena Hlc For the Art Appreciation class, there were only a couple of cases relevant to the current political controversies (part of the basic theories of art criticism - students practiced on the chosen cases). But there were more about the religious one: some students dislike how modern and post-modern art challenge the notions regarding the established religions, in particular, related to their religion and the Medieval/Byzantine arts.

Xena Hlc Another shameless self back-patting event: Through 2 semesters' ideation, designing, developing, experimenting, modification, evaluation, and delivery, the Art Appreciation (Intro to Visual arts) curriculum, from the scratch to the completed version, was finalized.

In fact, I feel less discomforted when students confused the differences between Civil War and Civil Rights Movements in my Diversity Studies classes, after I heard the current president said that Andrew Jackson would have stopped the Civil War....

(Note, I do admire his self-aware honesty - an excellent quality, rarely found among the smart or the powerful people ! - see below).

Crystal LC Huang See, FB Inc. just took off the "share" icon (so to the other post after my sincere accolades to the FB Inc, see my previous posts). Indeed, there is no such exciting items, such as butts, boobs, or things like "I drank my milk, and then went to work"...etc. can be found or shared from my timeline for the divine entertaining !

Crystal LC Huang Yes, most students are still in the learning processes, but a couple years ago, one of my office-mates told students that the US only had ethnic issues but not the racial one, while the other 2 colleagues (office-mates too) refused/skipped to teach gender/sexuality themes in order to keep their religious integrity. Just share one glimpse how exciting it is in facilitating Diversity course by a non-native English-speaking faculty at a Technical college setting. ( I can write a whole book about this journey of my pilgrimage). Stay tuned...

Crystal LC Huang Well, seemingly I am under a great attention of the FB Inc. segment- manager? After a minor sweet-explanation of my post (see above), then the "share" icon was suddenly, popped out!

Crystal LC Huang
Pop quiz for today: A short answer
What and why does Facebook Corporate company want to Manipulate your/others' posts by this intriguing button called "Like"?

6 You, Carmen Ombasa, Steven Deckelman and 3 others

Crystal LC Huang Here are some attractive, if not interesting reasons so far I have collected (Please share your observations) !
Reason#1- Force you to like your own posts, for the FB Inc. does not want you to be lonely?
Reason#2 - Only "like" those who like your posts, so the FB Inc. will enact  NCLB
                  (No Clickers Left Behind)?
Reason#3 - To please, glorify, or worship your bosses, your managers, and whoever has power over
                  you, so the FB Inc. can see who is on the top of the food chain?
Reason#4 - To be part of the great collective consciousness and maze, such as million likes to K.
                   Kardashian's butt/Beyonce's swollen tummy, your cat purchasing a new tiara, or your
                  baby's diapers tinted with Poopon, so the FB Inc. shall reinforce such a fantastic
                  popular culture?
Reason#5 - To show off what an adorable/hated/envied "smarter/nobler than you"  genius, wise-man or successful snob
                  you are, so FB Inc. will enhance such an interesting human psyche to attract more clienteles ?

Reason#6 - To show that everyone is a socio-economic-political pundit, if not a junkie, if you want,
                  so the FB Inc. can prove that everyone can be (if not, will be) the current (or future?) US
Reason#7 - Self-mental therapy (safe valves?) to rant/cathart on your timeline, so FB Inc, indeed
                  reduces members in the overcrowded mental institutions?
Reason#8 - Daily/routine monologues and self-exposure to fill up Facebook company's memory
                  storage, so the FB Inc. is able to harvest the free, BIG, volunteered data and sell them
                  gingerly and wisely?
Reason#9 - For the FB stock holders, the FB Inc. will not let you down to maintain, if not boost up
                  FB stock market value, by any means?
Reason#10 - Welcome "secret agent men, such as FBICIA" to appreciate your contributions to ____?
                  A serendipitous feature of the FB Inc.?
Will be continued...

Crystal LC Huang Your turns to share?? Am I in my early dementia - mistakenly thinking that this is an  on-line class' collaboration !?

Crystal LC Huang After a short break, now continuing this dialogue (monologue?)
Reason#11 Watch out the saints, sages, wise-people who are reluctantly hidden under no "likes" or
                   minimally liked. Doesn't the FB Inc. need these tiny voices to counter balance its
                   hedonistic popular culture?
Reason#12 - The FB timeline user-producers can be lonelier than the FB info user-consumers.
                   Doesn't the FB Inc. wish that you are able to sympathize those spending time on
                   producing something for better-or-worse, and/or for diversity ?
Reason#13 - Aren't the FB timeline info or new-reel user-transmitters/sharers/taggers happy bees -
                   helping the hard working user-producers, within a second, viola, the great deed of
                   pollination - being done?
Reason#14 - Isn't the FB Inc. content that some of the fb users are proper pro-sumers (free, voluntary,
                  happy-slave), accelerating the FB business' profit exponentially?
Reason#15 - Aren't the FB Inc.' gamers the big lonely crowd, who make fortune, connections,
                  excitement, mental-healing...etc. on the cyberspace, and solve many types of social
                  problems, social inequality, virtually?
Stay tuned...

Crystal LC Huang Just found an old poster. Isn't the philosophy of "like" amazing - of the mass? Can you deny the power of Media-"Populism" which has been so successfully executed in the political arena and the commercial world !?

Crystal LC Huang  Today, in one of my sociology classes, under a tiny fit of the early Alzheimer's teasing, we successfully discussed and analyzed Education as a pivotal social institution through functional and conflict perspectives. I also shared some of my perceptions and experiences about 2-year college vs. 4-year college teaching. Are you curious to know?

O.K., let me unselfishly share such a secret: in short, my previous teaching at universities in the Midwest with a Master degree I carried out my job pretty well - from my personal bias, while, later (maybe, moola could be a blame) I realize it takes 1.5 Ph.Ds, 3 Masters' and 1.75 Bachelor degrees just to keep my head above the flare during 14 years' teaching at a Technical college setting ! Ohh yes, it is exciting, challenging with lots of fun : via a 3rd language -that's the real, holy secret ! If you are interested in this episode, refer to - one of my blogs.

Crystal LC Huang Does Joe Biden say that the 2-year college is the US' Secret Weapon? A WMC : Weapons of Mass Construction? Mmm...Construct...? Secret, secret... ooohhh reminds me of Johnny River's song :

This is a Memorial Endowment Scholarship set up at CVTC in honor of the most important person in my life: Li-ling Huang.(黃麗玲) : my dearest baby-sister.  

She bravely overcomes her socio-economic adversities, and puts her heart and soul in helping the less fortunate people. She advocates for human-animal rights and the earthjustice, and is a community organizer and social justice activist. She works though all her life for the better society until the day she returns to the multiverse on July 3rd, 2016 at the age of 52.


Crystal LC Huang I remember Karrie right away at the reception banquet tonight. I was so touched by her field-study statement. A great learner, devoted mother with high academic achievements. I believe she will be a very caring and professional nurse in the near future.

Crystal LC Huang

This Diversity Endowment was set up in 2007 after my mother passed away (her last name is Tsai 蔡). I respect and was amazed by my parents who never got any bit of education, nor job skills during Japan's occupation on Taiwan, raising 10 kids with the best they could. In particular, my mother, she was an "illiterate" who could not read nor write, but believed in that the opportunity for a child to learn how to read and write can change his/her destiny, which was a ground-breaking idea among her contemporaries at that time.

Crystal LC Huang I just knew Molly was awarded this scholarship. I admire her career goals and ambition to take care of our environment for the sustainable concerns (I am a notorious dirt-lover and tree-hugger... too !) I am so happy for her that she won this scholarship.

Crystal LC Huang For the video part, I have no comments on other family's affairs.
But, these are public figures. Whether she was a model, star, or from a formerly, socialist country before, she is a woman (yes, does he forget that "woman's rights are part of human rights - in a rich family and an affluent country"? Furthermore, she is a mother and wife now. Doesn't she deserve a basic or proper treatment (according to the captured images in real time) from her husband and family members?

Crystal LC Huang Surely, human beings need to make a living, but are there other alternative ways to do it, instead of pursuing one's benefits, profits, pleasure, or convenience by exploiting other beings' lives in pains and suffering? Yes, even human enslaving in the mass scale of the contemporary societies is still going on...
