This teacher has some definitely class.

(Sorry)

When a single mom in Nashville had to bring her child to class, he didn't care. When the small boy wanted to be held by him, the professor was chill AF.

It's kind of great.

Local news channel WishTV has the story:

Amanda Osbon studies at DeVry University, located in south Nashville, and didn't have a choice but to take her son to class on Monday.

She told WKRN-TV her son, who is almost 2 years old, got up during class and wanted to be held by the professor.

Professor Joel Bunkowske, who Osbon says "was amazing, patient and kind," didn't skip a beat.

He picked up little Xzavier and continued to teach his class.

"Most of us in the class are parents, so everyone was very understanding that he was there," Osbon wrote..

She admitted it was embarrassing at first until Professor Bunkowske noted that everyone struggles, and that's OK.



He certainly beats yesterday's teacher who called a four-year-old evil for writing with his left hand.

So, well done.

An Australian professor put an ear in his arm for art.

Australian professor and artist Stelarc wants the world to hear him. He just has an unorthodox plan to get there.

The head of the Alternate Anatomies Laboratory at Curtin University is in the process of growing a human ear under his left arm, from a bio-polymer scaffold implanted there.

ABC plots the route of this project from conception to implant.

Stelarc first conceived the idea in 1996, but it took another decade to find the medical team willing to make it a reality.

They were recruited from around the world to insert a scaffold underneath his skin.

Within six months, tissue and blood vessels had developed around the structure.

"The ear is pretty much now a part of my arm, it's fixed to my arm and it has its own blood supply," he said.

The next step is to make the ear more three-dimensional — lifting it up off the arm and growing an ear lobe from Stelarc's stem cells.





After that, Stelarc wants to implant a microphone, recording all that happens around him as if it were a functioning ear. He wants anyone to have access to the live audio via Internet.

"There won't be an on-off switch," Stelarc told ABC. "If I'm not in a wi-fi hotspot or I switch off my home modem, then perhaps I'll be offline, but the idea actually is to try to keep the ear online all the time."

Art, y'all.

Drunk email can't stop a teacher from giving a great response.

Kids, just don't drink and email. It's as simple as that.

You would surely not be lucky as lucky as Patrick Davidson here. He went out for a night and had more than a few drinks it seemed. Then, he decided the best thing to do was to acknowledge how hungover he would be to his teacher and ask for an extension on a paper.

Antsped shared the (hopefully real) email on Imgur. It is beautiful.





Where it really gets good is Mr. Martin's response, which is thoughtful, funny and kind enough to actually grant poor Mr. Davidson that extension he so deserves.







Now, even though everything looks like it worked out for the best, students should really take heed and not email their teachers while drunk.

Or, actually, you know what? Yeah, go ahead and do it! We'll have more gems like this in our life and most will surely not end half as well.

Good yard, everyone.
