Curious about the terrorism charge in Michigan. Impact on the audience, no matter how horrific and incomprehensible, is not enough to characterize the act as terrorism. Absent a social, religious, political or other ideological agenda, difficult to see how it is terrorism.

Solidarity with colleagues in UK striking for better work conditions and better learning conditions, as @TwinerTweets aptly put.
I'm striking because my students deserve more than 2 allocated hours in my "workload model" for preparing a lecture that I hope they will remember ten years down the line. Our working conditions are their learning conditions. #WhyImStriking #UCUstrikes
