”Czech photographer Miloslav Druckmüller from a pier outside the Enewetak Radiological Observatory on the Marshall Islands during a 2009 expedition hosted by the Chair of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii.
It was during this trip that the photographer had the incredible opportunity to see a total solar eclipse from what is basically the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The location offered an unfettered, crystal clear view of this amazing and rare phenomenon.”
At TEDWomen, Tony Porter makes a call to men everywhere: Don’t “act like a man.” Telling powerful stories from his own life, he shows how this mentality, drummed into so many men and boys, can lead men to disrespect, mistreat and abuse women and each other. His solution: Break free of the “man box.”
This is beautiful, I have been trying to explain to my SO about how even if your intention is good and you are the most innocent man ever, you can still play into this societal and cultural game of beating down one another and disconnecting ourselves from entire groups of people. Rhetoric and the way we interact with the world can sadly support negative things (rape, hate crime, assault against a person for race, sex or sexual orientation). These are all supported not just by the people who commit them but also by the world’s and society’s that guilty person lives in.
Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
That would be a REALLY BAD IDEA
My old room mate, who is spending the night tonight, just ran into my room with ranch dripping from his lips. He then took his shirts off saying “you wanna brawl…” over and over…Needless to say he is fairly drunk and might be a little ill feelin after getting a take out of an appetizer sampler from Ihop, at midnight. OH Mur
Oh and my boyfriend just dropped 3 empty beer bottles down the stairs, and no not all at once, separately…Luckily he is making up for the broken glass with a sandwich and a cookie. :)
