León was also an active man who taught at the University of Salamanca, translated classical and biblical literature, and wrote on religious themes. Twice denounced before the Inquisition, he was imprisoned for "heresy," though he returned to the University to later hold the chairs of Moral Philosophy and Biblical Studies.

Tradition has it that he began his lecture the first day after returning from four years' imprisonment with the words "as we were saying yesterday..."

The guy was more annoying than the story and ends looking more like a misogynist himself.

On the other hand, we Argentinians know how to spend your time making productive things during the no-race days

The guy is making a bit of fun of it probably because the story is so sad that you have to understand his point of view. Those things happen because some others didn't take it in a humorous way.

It's sad that F1 is dying and has only 3 weeks left.

Quite why it takes three weeks to move from Malaysia to China is beyond me. Why can't we have four fly aways and then a three week break before Spain? Parts? Probably but it would make it a lot more interesting.

Easter weekend perhaps? I can't think of anything else besides that

I was just catching up on some reading and stumbled on the whole Adria Richards thing on Pharyngula (not sure I fully agree with all of that), and then remembered this thread (sorry, I didn't listen to the YouTube thing the guy was too annoying for my ears).  

Interesting incident there. I have to say I think I agree with most of this, although I definitely do strongly disagree with using Twitter as a medium to "name and shame" such a minor example of inappropriate humour (even if you agree that such humour is part of a wider sexist culture - though to me it just seemed like puns. But hey, I am not a woman working in a male environment). I agree that using Twitter might have been the quickest and easiest way of reporting behaviour that violated the conference rules which it apparently did (rather than say, relying on email which might not have been checked in good time to have the guys pulled aside and disciplined), but I don't think publicly identifying those people by posting their picture to your Twitter account is a particularly fair or reasonable response. After all, she had to show staff where they were sitting despite posting their faces on the internet, so that seems like a completely unnecessary and unfair step, and maybe even just a publicity gaining one. Her tweet would have been equally effective without using their faces. Nobody would have lost their jobs. The Twitter troll reaction would have been much less disgusting, I imagine. Posting the identity of somebody who is effectively having a private conversation, or thinks they are, would have been proportionate if they had been making rape jokes or something. Obviously not the case here.

I think those guys were in the wrong. But only a little bit. As much as crushing bad things like sexism (or the byproducts of it like inappropriate jokes in professional environments) might require some harsh tactics, I think this world really sucks if every questionable or childish or irrational thing we ever do, write, or say, is captured and posted on the internet for scrutiny.
"He has the speed of Casey [Stoner] but the brain of Valentino." ~ Honda's Livio Suppo describing Marc Marquez.

"Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright, it is not yet the end." ~ Paulo Coelho

Over the years the racing car has changed and the necessity for the sensitive and precise handling of the faster, lighter grand prix cars of the post war era, emphasised the need for a more subtle and controlled driving technique. Fangio, with his iron self-control and uncanny skill, met this demand with contemptuous ease, to set a style that raised the art of racing driving to the height of a new science. 20 years earlier in 1937, that great French driver Jean-Pierre Wimille, then at the height of his fame, said of Fangio "I have seen at Buenos Aires a brilliant new driver, the day he has a real racing car to drive, he will perform miracles”.

I completely agree.

She lives in a personal crusade. That type of jokes are not acceptable in a working environment but the inquisitorial behaviour from that woman is even worse. That type of public trials are something of the past, I wouldn't like to live in the Middle Ages with Twitter in the hands of the inquisitors.
