My father, Gary Tiedemann, who has died aged 78, was a scholar of Christianity in China and an expert on the Boxer uprising, the 1899 peasant rebellion. After 20 years as a historian at Soas University of London he went on to teach at a number of institutions around the world, most recently as a professor at Shandong University, China.

The son of Hertha (nee Kroos) and Hinrich Tiedemann, an agricultural labourer, he was born Rolf Gerhard Tiedemann in wartime Germany, and described his birthplace, Hartenholm, as “a tumbledown hovel in the outer margins of a remote village in Holstein”. His earliest memories were of seeing firebombed Hamburg burn in the distance and his childhood was marked by hardship and poverty – his mother was ill and the family’s difficult circumstances meant much of his early life was spent in care.

If you have to gamble, I for One suggest 2 hedge bets on “absurdity”, as it’s (at least) one thing ASSurED to precede even “change” and also follow it.
Some even say “change” is just the cents (or is that “scents”) left from the after-math of “absurdity".

be the change; be excellent to each other

Repeal of law dating from 1970s was a key part of Kyriakos Mitsotakis’s election campaign

Greece’s newly elected, centre-right government has ignored leftists’ protests to overturn a law that had prohibited police from entering universities.

In a stormy debate preceding Thursday’s vote, the prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, insisted the old law – regarded as sacrosanct in a country that had once known military rule – had turned campuses into dens of criminality and no-go zones for police.

“The $300 textbook is dead,” says the CEO of textbook maker Pearson - it is pivoting towards $40 - $80 digital textbooks


Since the 1970s, the business model for textbook makers has been to sell very expensive books to students, updating them every few years with new material to keep students paying top dollar. But online textbook rental services from companies like Chegg and Amazon have made it much easier to pay much less, and as a result Pearson’s revenues have fallen from $2 billion in 2013 to $1.3 billion today, Fallon said on the latest episode of Recode Decode With Kara Swisher.

So instead of selling giant hardcover textbooks like Calculus: Early Transcendentals (list price for a new hardcover copy: $277.20), Pearson is going to start renting digital textbooks for $40 to $80, updating them over the air. Next month, it will launch the first of a new series of mobile apps called Aida — a portmanteau of AI and Ada Lovelace — that will let calculus students take a picture of their homework and, Fallon said, get step-by-step correctio...

Staff describe decision as ‘blowback’ as a result of worsening relations with US

Russia has denied visas to teachers of the Anglo-American school in Moscow, in a move described by one teacher as “blowback” over worsening US-Russian relations.

In a statement, US ambassador Jon Huntsman called the decision to deny visas to 30 teachers at the Anglo-American school “unfortunate” and said it would “affect over 1,100 students and their families, who represent over 60 countries, including Russia”. The day school is popular among the children of western diplomats and businessmen.
