Take heed. I bite.
I was a student of this field school through CofC a few years ago. First of all, a big shout out to Professor Borg, who's professionalism and dedication are only outshown by her sunny disposition.
Secondly, I cringed when the author of this article referred to the dig sites as "holes". Ha ha! We were required to call them "units". Calling it a hole was verboten.
Thirdly, the piece in the picture, referred to as chinese porcelain, is entirely too thick to be authentic. I should know after the mountains of research and study we were required to fulfill regarding the identification of pottery/sherds. It is actually an attempt to replicate Chinese porcelain. The Chinese were incredibly secretive about how they created their porcelain. Europeans and settlers of the Americas desperately tried to duplicate the process but were never quite successful. Their attempts resulted in pottery that was entirely too thick, didn't quite meet the quality of color in Chinese porcelain, and with images that were often blurred or streaked.
I can't believe how much of this I remember! Eek!
Kudos to the students who are broiling under a merciless South Carolina sun, fending off ticks, fire ants, spiders, and snakes, toiling in dirt for days on end; all while doing hours of research, studies, and paper writing every night. It's a difficult assignment, but one that leaves you enriched for the rest of your lives!
Mr. Forman, I'm confused. Please explain to my ignorant self how cutting jobs helps people to afford better education so that they can get a job? Also, my math skills are a bit dusty, so I'm trying to figure out how having NO income facilitates the affordability of cheaper goods.
Inquiring minds want to know.
In line with reddawg's statement I demand Ritz commercials (and boxes!) stop using the word "cracker".
I wish I knew to what you are specifically referring. This could encompass so many issues, each with a different answer/solution... But it all depends upon what the h*ll you're talking about.
I think, if we are going to expand the statement, that we need better monitoring of WHAT people are spending their benefits on.
If someone can afford to purchase $150 worth of crab and have no concern with what/how they're going to eat for the remainder of the month once said crab is gone then it's time to re-examine the system and work out a few kinks.
