Maud Returns Home Project -
Maud Returns Home is a final initiative to bring the remains of Roald Amundsens polarship MAUD from the North West Passage, back to Vollen and Norway where she was built nearly 100 years ago. Maud sunk in shallow water 80 years ago. She still rests on the seabed today in the same place, close to Cambridge Bay in the North West Passage, North Canada, and she is now in a state of slow deterioration.

Up and down we go.: Dear Customer who stuck up for his little brother, -
you thought I didn’t really notice. But I did. I wanted to high-five you. Yesterday I had a pair of brothers in my store. One was maybe between 15-17. He was a wrestler at the local high school. Kind of tall, stocky and handsome. He had a younger brother, who was maybe about 10-12 years old. The…
Dismissing Gridlock: A Case for Parliamentary Systems -
“The United States is not about to up and rewrite its constitution to create a parliamentary system. But if it were up to Gerring and Thacker, it certainly should. As Gerring put it, ‘There’s very little to defend the current system’.”
I grew up in a mill town in West Michigan
The mill closed 15 years ago after a corporation purchased it to “eliminate competition”. Hundreds were unemployed as a result.
I went to college so I wouldn’t have to work in a car parts factory like the majority of friends I went to High School with who come home coughing up blood after working 11+ hour shifts.
Graduated with a 3.4 GPA and $40,000 in debt.
Unemployed and living with my mother who makes $12,000 a year.
Wal-Mart wouldn’t hire me, saying I was OVERQUALIFIED.
My Dad is in his mid-60s and nowhere near retiring.
My credit is shot due to unpaid medical bills.
I will never own a house.
I lost the majority of my belongings in an apartment fire last year. The landlord neglected to put in either fire detectors or a fire extinguisher in the building. He has evaded all my attempts to recover my $600 security deposit.
I have $2.85 in my bank account.
Despite this, I consider myself one of the fortunate members of the 99%
