Flashback: Professor Exposes Hazards of Gay Frog Chemical in TEDTalks Lecture

Liberals often criticize Infowars for claiming chemicals in drinking water are lowering fertility.

But in a TEDTalks lecture from 2010, Professor Tyrone Hayes broke down his extensive research into the chemical atrazine, an herbicide used on crops, and its effect on frogs.

In 2003, Hayes found even minute levels of atrazine cause amphibians to suffer severe genetic mutations, the effects of which cascade down through future generations of frogs.

Here’s a summary of the lecture from TEDTalks:

Filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer was curious about the chemicals she was exposed to while pregnant: Could they affect her unborn child? So she asked scientist Tyrone Hayes to brief her on one he studied closely: atrazine, a herbicide used on corn. (Hayes, an expert on amphibians, is a critic of atrazine, which displays a disturbing effect on frog development.) Onstage together at TEDWomen, Hayes and Chaffer tell their story.

UMN hosting prof to lecture on ‘the violence of whiteness’

The University of Minnesota has invited a professor dedicated to “dismantling whiteness” to speak next week on how whiteness is an “existential threat” to the United States.

The Elephant in the Room: A ‘Grown Up’ Conversation about Whiteness” will be presented by Lisa Anderson-Levy, an Anthropology professor at Beloit College whose teaching philosophy is predicated on the belief that “teaching is a political act.”

“She argues that whiteness poses an existential threat to social, political, and economic life in the U.S.”

During her lecture, Anderson-Levy is slated to speak on a number of issues, including “the violence of whiteness” and how colleges and universities in the United States may be complicit in perpetuating this violence.

“This presentation explores the ubiquity and violence of whiteness and the ways in which academic institutions are poised to either reproduce or interrupt these discourses,” writes Anderson-Levy, referring to herself in the third person.

“She argues that whiteness poses an existential threat to social, political, and economic life in the U.S. and proposes that decentering whiteness is one of the most urgent social dilemmas of our time and demands our immediate attention,” the abstract adds.

Anderson-Levy will also speak on how college administrators can “decenter whiteness” at their institutions, “including in our budgets, our curricula, our disciplinary genealogies, our interactions with students, and our relationships with each other as colleagues.”
