It’s no one else’s fault that you aren’t that
I don’t get this shit
Solar energy that doesn’t block the view
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
Jon Stewart Goes After Fox in Powerful Ferguson Monologue
I been waiting for the daily show to come back so they could cover this
Jon rip them boys a new asshole
See, Jon Stewart usually does a lot of satirical humour, but at this point, the writers are just like “fuck the comedy this shit is real” and I was so happy to see that they finally covered this, and it was really well done.
"You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it." ~Jon Stewart.
Seriously, watch this video, bless this video, it’s amazing, but I think my favorite parts are when he hears other reports on Ferguson and can’t even get his comment out because he’s so disgusted at what they’re saying. ”They’re playing the race card.” “Racists are the ones who bring up race.” Seriously, just… really?
What’s even better is that he knows that he’ll never understand how it feels, but its not about understanding, its about human decency and showing respect and knowing that this shit happens. Honestly, you don’t have to try and understand my black experience, but at least acknowledge that my experience is different and that there are people who will crap all over it because of my skin color. No one is playing any sort of card, stop living in this bubble racism is very real and people get killed over it. Stop comparing your experience to someone else’s, because it’ll never be the same.
This is an important message on how privilege really works.
Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity.
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood.
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.
