Many scholars have argued that comics are inherently suited to—and have indeed helped innovate—approaches to life writing that self-reflexively interrogate the act of life writing. Kate Beaton’s “Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands” deftly exploits this tradition. #ducks 1/13 Image
Comics autobio was key to changing the public perception of comics in North America. When Art Spiegelman’s “Maus” won a Pulitzer in 1992, there was finally broad acceptance of something comics creators & fans always knew: comics can address serious topics with great artistry 2/13 Image
The popularity and critical praise for graphic novels like Marjane Satrapi’s “Persepolis” (2004) and Alison Bechdel’s ”Fun Home” (2006) similarly expanded people’s appreciation for what comics are and what they can do, including things they can’t do that other mediums can’t. 3/13 Image

So one of the biggest complaints I've seen from #Flyers fans over their efforts this season, is "they get scored on a lot, right after scoring".

So let's find out if this is true...
#FlyersTalk #AnytimeAnywhere
Through 28 games in 2020-21, the #Flyers have been scored on 18 times within 5 minutes of scoring a goal.
- 12 of those goals against came within 2min of scoring
- 4 of them came within 1min of scoring
- 2 of them came within 30 seconds of scoring
#FlyersTalk #AnytimeAnywhere
How does this compare to the rest of the league?

Most goals conceded within 5 minutes of scoring:
1. #Oilers - 28
2. #Caps - 22
3. #Leafs - 20
4. #Flames - 19
5. #Flyers/#GoldenKnights - 18

and the fewest:

31. #Stars/#Ducks - 4
29. #Sharks - 6

What do you know about the productivity and harvest of wild waterfowl? The biology of it is in some ways poorly known in Europe - but we can look at the USA first to see what they have found #ducks #conservation #utilitarian #thread (Credit: I.Acarpentier) /1
The USFW has invested in a wild duck biology research program - state funded - linked to income from hunters permits - but culturally subsidised - since at least the 1950s and from 1952 also studied hunter behaviour and success… /2
Lets cut straight to the chase - and lets study mallards - the model on which all other adaptive harvest hunting decisions are made in the USA (possible because they dont waste time and effort on releases but invest in habitat on a continental scale - listening everyone 😇/3

THREAD about birb in Iranian art 🦆🦚🐓🦅🐣

~ NA @eranudturan #HistoryofIran ImageImage
You’ll notice that #ducks are REALLY common in #Sogdian art, appearing primarily in #textile (there’s also a wooden painted panel from Kucha). They almost always hold a necklace in their beaks

~ NA @eranudturan #Historyofiran ImageImageImageImage
They sometimes appear in conjunction with pheasants, who often wear a necklace around their necks.

What’s this motif all about?

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.
