D8 (magazine)

D8 was a magazine, published out of Philadelphia and New York City in 1995-1996 and targeted fans of role-playing games. The name referred to an eight-sided polyhedral die common in such games. Unlike other gaming magazines, d8’s focus was not on gaming systems and rules, but rather the art of role playing and the cultural, pop-cultural, subcultural interests of the people who played games. D8 styled itself “the magazine of role-playing culture”; this editorial mission was conceived of by Creative Director David DeCheser. The magazine was financed by Frank Slattery IV, an avid gamer who wanted to be involved in the field. Edited by Holly Black and Joe Cirillo, the magazine had a host of eclectic and regular contributors that included author Steve Berman, GWAR member Hunter Jackson, illustrators Joseph Hasenauer and Theo Black, Yamara creators Barbara Manui and Chris Adams, former Shadis editor Jolly R. Blackburn. Articles on LARPs were placed side-by-side with interviews with comic book artists such as Dave McKean, reviews of authentic medieval restaurants, caffeinated tips on how to game all night.

One of d8’s stand-out regular features was its fashion spread which, coordinated by stylist Deanna Stull and photographed by Director of Photography Michael Amper, showcased shoots that included renaissance garb, neo-gothic vampires in latex, leather plated armor. The magazine is credited as introducing Holly Black to artist Tony DiTerlizzi, who would go on to co-author The Spiderwick Chronicles. Black’s first published work, "Ahremon/City of the Sun: Garden of Ghosts", appeared in the second issue of d8. At that time she was writing under the name Holly Riggenbach; the magazine was both praised and criticized for its graphic design. The design was influenced by then-famous Ray Gun designer David Carson, the “grunge” style typefaces being produced by font foundries such as T26. Critics cited the grid-less expressive design as difficult to read. Conversely the design is what attracted the less traditional, more alternative artistic contributors that Creative Director David DeCheser sought, such as: Dave McKean, Eric Dinyer, John K. Snyder III.

Managed internally by Deanna Stull, quirky internal advertisements for subscriptions and a raw marketing style well suited the industry. Launched at a time when collectible card games such as Magic: The Gathering were infiltrating the gaming market, d8’s audience proved to be too niche to continue past its fourteen-month run, it was successful however in attracting a cross-over audience of fans of gothic subculture.

Shaker scoop

A shaker scoop is an automobile term for an air intake for combustion air, mounted directly on top of the engine's air cleaner and protrudes through a hole in the hood. Since it is fastened directly to the engine, it moves with the engine's movement and vibration on its mountings, thus the'shaker' name; some official Chrysler literature referred to this popular hood style as the "Incredible Quivering Exposed Cold Air Grabber". This lengthy title has since been shortened by enthusiasts and collectors to the less tongue-twisting "shaker hood". Like all such scoops, its purpose is to increase performance at high speed by a'ram air' effect, delivering high pressure air to the engine. However, engines draw air in hundreds of cubic feet per minute so scoops are not practical to raise intake pressures significantly. Other benefits of a shaker hood include elevation to prevent water from being drawn on flooded terrain, a cooler source of air, a more direct path to the engine's throttle plate; such scoops were fitted to a variety of cars, including: 1969 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1970 Boss 302 Mustang 1970 Plymouth Barracuda Dodge Challenger Ford Torino Pontiac GTO Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Pontiac Can Am Grand Am Ford Falcon XY GT Phase III 2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Beverly Daniel Tatum

Beverly Christine Daniel Tatum is a psychologist and educator who has conducted research and written books on the topic of racism. Focusing on race in education, racial identity development in teenagers, assimilation of black families and youth in white neighborhoods. Tatum uses works from her students, personal experience, psychology learning. Tatum served from 2002 to 2015 as the ninth president of Spelman College, the oldest black women’s college in the United States. Tatum is the author of the acclaimed book "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria" And Other Conversations About Race, in which she argues that Americans are reluctant to talk about issues of race, that we must begin to consider the psychological effects of racial identity development. In her more recent 2007 book, Can We Talk about Race? and Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation, Tatum again highlights the urgent need for conversations about race, emphasizing the continued racial segregation of schools and the impacts that this has on achievement of racial minorities.

Beverly Christine Daniel Tatum was born on September 1954, in Tallahassee, Florida. Her parents were Robert A. Daniel. Tatum calls herself an "integration baby", having been born only four months after the 1954 Supreme Court ruling on Brown v. Board of Education that outlawed race-based segregation in schools. Tatum grew up in Bridgewater, Mass. where she recalls being the only black student in her classes. Much of her family, including her parents and great-grandparents attended some of the best black colleges, such as the Tuskegee Institute and Howard University. However, when Tatum graduated high school in 1971, she was not limited to only black colleges and universities. Beverly Tatum earned a B. A. in Psychology from Wesleyan University. She received her M. A. in Clinical Psychology in 1976 from the University of Michigan, a Ph. D in clinical Psychology in 1984 from the University of Michigan. Much in 2000, she received an M. A. in religious studies from Hartford Seminary. Tatum taught Black Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara from 1980 to 1983.

She went on to be a professor of Psychology at Westfield State College, served as a professor of Psychology for thirteen years at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. While at Mount Holyoke, she was appointed as chair of the Psychology department, Dean of the College, Vice President for Student Affairs, acting President of the College. In the fall of 2002, Tatum became the President of Spelman College, a black liberal arts women’s college located in Atlanta, Georgia, her tenure there was marked by many successes, including a 10-year campaign that increased the alumni donation rate up to 41%, raised $157.8 million. Tatum has brought her expertise in the realm of racial identity development to lectures and panels across the country speaking as a panel member at the Summit on Race Relations and America’s Public Education System, a publicly broadcast conversation about race relations, hosted by President Bill Clinton. In addition to being a renowned educator and author, Tatum worked as a practicing clinical psychologist from 1988 to 1998.

Her area of expertise was in diversity training and multicultural organizational development, which she would carry out in individual and group sessions. Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum retired in July 2015 as President Emerita of Spelman College, she now hopes to focus on work as an author and expert of racial identity development. In Beverly Tatum’s cited article Talking about Race, Learning about Racism: The Application of Racial Identity Development Theory in the Classroom, published in the Harvard Educational Review, she describes her experiences teaching classes on race related issues, applies Racial Identity Development Theory as a framework, useful for understanding common student responses to such topics, she summarizes her career-long commitment to teaching about and leading discussions on race at various institutions in the following quote: "I was convinced that helping students understand the ways in which racism operates in their own lives, what they could do about it, was a social responsibility that I should accept."Over her many years as an educator, Tatum taught a course titled "Psychology of Racism" eighteen times at three separate institutions.

While the class sizes, the institutions, the students varied a great deal, Tatum says that classes shared a common thread in how the students tended to react to the material. She describes how students responded to such topics expressing guilt and anger, all of which had the potential to prevent them from engaging with and appreciating the material. Tatum argues that students tended to resist the topic of race in part because it is considered taboo, but because it clashes with meritocratic ideals that are prominent in America, because white students fail to recognize that race has meaningfully impacted each of their lives. Tatum explains this resistance further in terms of William E. Cross, Jr.’s Racial Identity Development theory, a theory that explores the psychological effects of coming to terms with one’s racial group membership. Racial identity theories have been modeled for blacks and whites, but these theories vary markedly in terms of the developmental stages by which they are defined.

As a professor, Tatum has observed many students go through these stages of racial identity development, provides quotes from journal entries in which the students react to the class discussions and material over
