Dozens of payphones removed from UWindsor campus | CBC News
According to the notice posted online by the university's facility services department, I was surprised to read there were 55 payphones on campus. Bell planned to remove 53 of them — leaving just one in the CAW Student Centre and another in the Leddy Library.

Legal recreational marijuana: what you need to know | CBC News
Canadians who cross the border frequently into the U.S. should prepare for American customs and border patrol officers asking pointed questions about their drug histories.

U.S. immigration lawyers are already warning Canadians that they could be denied entry to the U.S. — or barred from the United States for life — if they admit to smoking cannabis to a border agent. The drug is still a prohibited substance under U.S. federal law, despite legalization in some U.S. states.

Library Freedom Institute Kicks Off Train-the-Trainers Privacy Course
Last week, the Library Freedom Institute (LFI) launched a program designed to help librarians become advocates for online privacy. Created by the Library Freedom Project (LFP) in partnership with New York University (NYU), the six-month train-the-trainers course will teach a cohort of 14 librarians “how to lead privacy-focused computer classes at several levels: how to install and use privacy software; how to teach their own train-the-trainer workshops to other librarians in their regions; how to approach members of their community about privacy concerns; and how to use their new roles as Privacy Advocates to influence policy and infrastructure,” according to an LFI announcement.

Graeber's Bullshit Jobs | Miskatonic University Press
Here’s a quote from chapter five, “Why Are Bullshit Jobs Proliferating?” where he’s talking about Benjamin Ginsberg’s The Fall of the Faculty (also worth reading):

Back in the 1950s or 1960s, one could still say that universities were one of the few European institutions left that had survived more or less intact from the Middle Ages. Crucially, they were still run on the old medieval principle that only those involved in a certain form of production—whether this be the production of stonework or the leather gloves or mathematical equations—had the right to organize their own affairs; indeed that they were also the only people qualified to do so. Universities were basically craft guilds run for and by scholars, and their most important business was considered to be producing scholarship, their second-most, training new generations of scholars. True, since the nineteenth century, universities had maintained a kind of gentleman’s pact with government, that they would also train civil servants (and later, corporate bureaucrats) in exchange for otherwise being largely left alone. But since the eighties, Ginsberg argues, university administrators have effectively staged a coup. They wrested control of the university from the faculty and oriented the institution itself toward entirely different purposes. It is now commonplace for major universities to put out “strategic vision documents” that barely mention scholarship or teaching but go on at length about “the student experience,” “research excellence” (getting grants), collaboration with business or government, and so forth.

I quote this because I see this where I work, at York University. The updates and reports from the university president sound like a CEO reporting on a business.

We’re Reading Fahrenheit 451 Wrong | L.M. Sacasas
Bradbury makes clear that the firemen who famously start fires to burn books are doing so only long after people stopped reading books of their own accord as other forms of media came to dominate their experience. Actually, to be more precise, they did not stop reading altogether. They stopped reading certain kinds of books: the ones that made demands of the reader, intellectual, emotional, moral demands that might upset their fragile sense of well-being.

Fahrenheit 451, in other words, is more Huxley than Orwell.
