‘PBS Idea Channel’ Examines What the SAT Test Actually Tests

Published by:

PBS Idea Channel host Mike Rugnetta examines what the SAT test actually, well, tests in the latest episode of the series. Rugnetta points out that the underlying assumptions of the test could potentially favor certain demographics over others, and test scores don’t reliably translate to graduation from a university.

THE SAT. How’s that SAT prep going? Need some SAT tips? Well, here’s one: The SAT may not actually be measuring your…anything. That’s right, your SAT scores, despite what colleges and high schools across America may like for you to believe, may not reflect anything new. There is actually substantial evidence that instead of broad aptitudes, the SATs only measure a specific set of non-quantitative, cultural values and ideas.

Why I Quit The Fashion Industry To Live In A Cabin In The Woods

Published by:

This time five years ago I was living the dream of many photographers: I had a successful career in the fashion industry, and I was splitting my time between Toronto and Mumbai, shooting for magazines like Vogue and Rolling Stone. I worked with some really fantastic people, and had some amazing experiences, but through it all I could never escape this nagging feeling calling me back to my roots.

My career as a photographer really started when I was 18. I had my very first camera, and I was taking pictures of bald eagles during their mating season.I came home with a collection of blurry photos, but a crystal clear goal: I’m going to be a photographer. I’m going to photograph wildlife.

I got a little distracted from my quest, but after five years something just clicked one day – it was a great life, but it wasn’t my goal, it wasn’t what I’d got into it for. So I packed my bags and moved back to Vancouver Island. I built a little cabin in the forest and started photographing wildlife again.

A few years later and here we are. I’ve photographed wild bison in Yellowstone, tracked feral horses through the Dakotas, hung out with a grizzly bear in Montana, and went on a hike with a wolf in British Columbia. Most importantly, the images I’m showing people are the images I’m passionate about, the things I want people to see and fall in love with. Instead of helping people fall in love with material goods, I’m showing them lovers in the sky. I think my 18-year old self would approve.
