Happening now in Ferguson, Missouri: Instead of following police orders to disperse, protesters get on their knees with their hands up, refuse to move, August 13, 2014.
This is gonna be in textbooks 50 years from now
Every time people say animals don’t have feelings, I show them this.
25 Of The Best Parenting Moments In The Animal Kingdom
1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”
2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.
3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.
4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.
5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.
6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.
7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.
8. Because feminists just need to chill out.
9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.
10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.
There’s a fucking womanifesto for you.
Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.
she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.
damn no wonder she died and smiled for a trillion years afterwards
The fact that we know about her is marvelous.
the next Pharaoh after her Tuthmosis III tried to erase Hatshepsut out of history ,chiseled her name off her monuments ,covered the text on her obelisks with stone,knocked down and defaced her statues .
she was even left off the list of pharaohs ..talk about some patriarchy bullshit
her name was lost for a couple of millennia, her body was found in a unmarked grave in early twentieth century
sad part is in Egyptian belief is if your are forgotten in the living world you don’t exist in the afterlife,so he was trying to kill her even in death
My best friend throwing down some herstory. A+ commentary
She wore a fake beard, you guys.
She was the fucking boss.
If we remember her now does that save her from an awful afterlife?
I’m just picturing the Kemetic afterlife. All the Pharaohs are hanging out in some kind of swanky club, drinking and congratulating each other on being bros.
The doors slam open and Hatshepsut strides in, glorious, robes swirling, rocking the fake beard and the insane amounts of wealth and power. “Miss me, bitches?”
THIS IS NOT A GOOD BOX HUMAN
SAVE ME FROM THE BOX

Project: The Non-Invasive Search For Optimal Triple Negative Breast Cancer Treatment
Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) gets its name because the cancer lacks receptors for estrogen, progesterone, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2. Because TNBC can’t be targeted with hormone treatment, it is especially aggressive with few noninvasive treatment options. Daniela and Sadhika developed a mathematical model using existing imaging techniques to predict how a patient will respond to treatment. This could cut down on unnecessary surgery and biopsies.

Project: The Olfactory Awakening - Revolutionize Your Morning!
Most people rely on alarm clocks with loud sounds to help get them out of bed in the morning. However, alternative solutions are needed for those with hearing imparments. Guillaume devised an alarm clock that utilizes the sense of smell in order to wake people up. At the designated alarm time, a fan pulls in ambient air in the room and directs the air stream toward the sleeping person, rousing them with the scent of peppermint. Guillaume’s testing showed that it takes 30-120 seconds to wake someone up with this method.

Project: H2Pro - Portable Photocatalytic Electricity Generation And Water Purification Unit
Over 780 million people around the globe lack access to clean water and 1.2 billion do not have electricity. Cynthia developed a way to kill two birds with one stone by creating H2PRO, which simultaneously purifies water and generates electricity using only sunlight. Photocatalytic reactions decomposed 90 percent of organic pollutants in only two hours, though modifications need to be made to increase electricity production.

Project: Wearable Sensors: A Novel Healthcare Solution For The Aging Society
An estimated 65 percent of the the 5.2 million Americans with Alzheimer’s wander, which can lead to injury or death. Kenneth became acutely aware of this problem while caring for his grandfather. In order to keep these people safe, Kenneth developed a device that would sense when the wanderer stood up and put pressure on their foot. The device can send an alert to the caregiver’s smartphone via Bluetooth. After six months of use, the device caught all instances of his grandfather getting out of bed at night without any false positives.

Project: Talk - An Innovative AAC Device For People With Developmental Disabilities
Over 1 percent of the world suffers from disabilities that inhibit their ability of speech due to paralysis, including people like Stephen Hawking who suffer from ALS. There are Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices (AAC) available to help them communicate, but each unit can cost thousands of dollars and have certain drawbacks. Arsh developed a system that allows the user to exhale through the nose as Morse Code. It is able to speak and give commands in English using one of 9 different voices.
Mark Drobnich, 14
Project: School Presentation Microscope With Remote Management
Biology students often have to share microscopes, due to a lack of resources. This leads to a lot of down time while they learn to adjust the visual settings between users. Using LEGO Technik and Mindstorm EV3 kits, Mark was able to develop a microscope that can be controlled via remote in order to sharpen the image and transmit it via Bluetooth on the Android platform. What’s more, the images obtained from the microscope can be connected through Google Hangouts for use in schools or classes that do not have access to microscopes.

Project: Rethink: An Effective Way To Prevent Cyberbullying
In an effort to abate the ever-increasing amount of cyber-bullying among adolescents, Trisha developed a “Rethink” program that would alert a user if an outgoing message contains language that is potentially abusive and hurtful. Her project was inspired by research that has shown that the region of the brain that influences decision making is not fully developed until age 25. Her preliminary studies showed that adolescents who tried the “Rethink” system were 93% less likely to send abusive messages than those who were not warned about the consequences of their actions.
" Google has announce the 15 finalists for the 2014 Google Science Fair. If you’re not familiar with the program, it is an online science fair for students aged 13-18 around the globe. This isn’t just a bunch of kids making baking soda volcanos or dropping Mentos into Diet Coke: these young scientists are doing real research that can actually improve the world around them."
I’m going to be posting my favourite entries in a moment. If you don’t want to see them then tags will be ifls and Google science fair
