Saturday Link Love: Tesla, Taylor University, and Russian Spies

Saturday Link Love: Tesla, Taylor University, and Russian Spies July 28, 2018

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Cravings, on Autostraddle—“My second winter living in Kyrgyzstan, a young woman from the States came to visit me in Bakai Ata. We’d never met, but had known of each other for years and had been writing each other tentative, tender letters for months.”

Tesla says its factory is safer. But it left injuries off the books, on Reveal—“Concerned about bone-crunching collisions and the lack of clearly marked pedestrian lanes at the Fremont, California, plant, the general assembly line’s then-lead safety professional went to her boss, who she said told her, ‘Elon does not like the color yellow.'”

Decades of Reported Abuse, No Action, on Inside HigherEd—“A Taylor University professor who resigned amid allegations he sexually harassed women had been accused of behaving inappropriately for decades at professional conferences. But organizers kept asking him back.”

Why Russian Spies Really Like American Universities, on ProPublica—“Although cyber-spying and hacking offer opportunities to glean secrets at less personal risk, the traditional strategies of human espionage persist, and sending a spy to school is prominent among them.”
