    Tôi thật sự không muốn nhìn thấy, không muốn reblog, không muốn thừa nhận những hình ảnh này. Những lời cầu nguyện và hy vọng chỉ là ảo ảnh cố chấp của những người còn sống mà thôi.

    Cảm giác đau đớn chạnh lòng này vẫn như những năm trước khi tôi nhìn thấy hình ảnh của Nhật Bản sau cơn động đất, hình ảnh thân nhân của các nạn nhân trong chuyến bay MH370 và bây giờ là tiếc thương cho các em học sinh trên chuyến phà Sewol gặp tai nạn, đấy là chưa kể đến chuyện thương tâm mỗi ngày diễn ra trên mọi nẻo đường ở Việt Nam…

    Ôi biết bao giờ đớn đau này nguôi…!?

    Several days ago, on Russian state television, a news anchor was chatting with Alexandr Prokhanov (a far-right newspaper publisher). Prokhanov expressed disbelief that Jewish people in Ukraine were supporting the “Banderites”, and then the news anchor promptly blamed them for bringing the Holocaust on themselves.

    It’s pretty weird to me that the Russian government (which has some pretty outspoken anti-semites and actual fascists in it) is crowing about fighting antisemitism and fascism in this conflict. This shit is inexcusable.

    A request I’ve been doki about for ages? Tav/Nep where he’s allergic to her and bashful about all the sneezing, but thinks the sloppy makeouts are totally worth it once he finds out she doesn’t mind. Bonus for sneeze fetishist!Nepeta or at least a Nepeta who thinks it’s actively adorable.
    ((Sorry this one’s kind of shortish, allergies aren’t my forte. Also, how do people even write these two?Anyway, hope you enjoy ♥))

    Kissing is great. Nepeta Leijon is even greater. Kisses with Nepeta Leijon? Fucking magical.

    Except for when they’re not.

    You really have the worst luck. Dating Nepeta was hard enough already what with Equius’s pale interventions and all, but you soon discovered another complication. Your meowbeast allergies – which usually manifest in itchy eyes, occasional hives and an insane amount of sneezing – apparently extend to your feline matesprit. You can’t really complain too much, though. It would take a lot more than watery eyes and an itchy nose to tear you away from the hat-wearing, claw-wielding, ship-loving girl of your dreams. It’s well-worth the hives, you decided right from the get-go.

    Some days it’s manageable. When the two of you have outdoorsy dates (especially away from her hive and her hive-inducing lusus), or after she’s had a shower, or when you make a special effort not to touch her hair – then it’s not so bad. If you’re lucky, the worst you’ll get is a slight tickle in your nose or a sparse handful of sneezes.

    Unfortunately for you, today is not one of those easy days.

    Haven’t checked my tag or kept up with Tumblr in a few days because I’ve been feeling under the weather, what a WONDERFUL thing to come back to. Thank you so much. ^_^

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

    Bob is a partner of one of my personal friends, and a queer pagan of color. He’s really a fantastic person. His book about/advocating for queer inclusivity in the Pagan community is coming out soon. This fundraiser will help his chosen family make their house accessible for him when he comes home! Please donate and/or signal boost.

    This is great, but you shouldn’t have to add that tidbit about him being an odd minority to get people to care. Minorities are just as special and deserve the same amount of respect and treatment as the majority of people. It saddens me that if he had been a member of the majority, people would have kept scrolling but AS SOON AS THEY SEE HE IS A PAGAN QUEER, HE SUDDENLY BECOMES GOD AND HAS TO HAVE EVERYTHING HE NEEDS BECAUSE OMG A PERSONS PERSONAL CHOICES AND BELIEFS ELEVATE THEM BEYOND THE CIS SCUM, RELIGIOUS BASTARDS, AND PEOPLE WHO OBVIOUSLY CANNOT COMPARE TO SUCH A PERFECT HUMAN BEING FKJ;LFHF

    Stop.

    I would reblog this for anyone and I REFUSE to glorify people who think they are special just because they declare they have different or unpopular beliefs.

    You know what? I added that bit because I’m specifically trying to reach queer and pagan communities. Because - as implied by the bit about the book coming out soon - the person we’re trying to help is an academic writer who does work relevant to those communities!

    If something similar happened to a fan writer/artist, or a member of the military, or a schoolteacher, or a cosplayer, or a scientist, or for that matter someone who does “Let’s Plays” of videogames or starts Tumblr memes, I would add those things in the blurb about the person we’re trying to help. Why? Because it might get the post reblogged by people who don’t know that person but have something in common with them or are interested in the type of work they do! That’s it, plain and simple!

    But somehow I don’t think you would go off on a dumbass rant about how “AS SOON AS THEY SEE HE DRESSES UP AS A GREY-SKINNED ALIEN, HE SUDDENLY BECOMES GOD.” Somehow I’m pretty sure that’s you having a chip on your shoulder and bringing it into the issue of helping another person who’s going through a rough time. 

    I’m not sure where you get ‘SUDDENLY BECOMES GOD’ out of a post with, at the time you posted, about 30 notes on it, either. If that’s suddenly becoming God, the bad pun I posted last week must be God’s boss; it’s got like 300 notes on it. 

    Word of advice: if you are that bitterly envious of someone who’s made a contribution to their community, maybe consider spending more of your time and energy contributing to your own community, whatever you feel that to be. Perhaps you are scared that when you need help, people will have nothing to say about you? 

    I had no idea about this until now. Its been a year or two since I last saw Bob.

    Tumblr privilege / identity politics drama aside: Bob is a total badass, and needs help.

    List of credentials:
    * Best GM ever. Keeps metaverse running in own head, able to improv while keeping consistency like no one else I’ve ever met.
    * He once annihilated me at push hands using ballet
    * Best Frank-N-Furter rendition ever. I walked in on him watching Rocky Horror once, and he was able to do the Doc’s song and dance (Sweet Transvestite), in time and in tempo, with his back to the TV. It was surreal and amazing.
    * He calls my oldest son Aquaman
    * Literally encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture.

    now just wait for someone to come yelling at you because tHEY’RE NOT A GM AND HOW DARE TUMBLR GLORIFY GAMERS AND WHAT IF THIS HAPPENED TO A NON-GAMER, WHAT THEN =P 

    (anyway reblogging for additional testimonials and additional signal boost)

    They’re at about 4/5 of their goal! I also urge folks to remember that the goal is the minimum they need (as it says on the youcaring drive page) and a little extra is liable to be very helpful, too.

How Harmless Bacteria Quickly Turned Into a Flesh-Eating Monster
Just four changes gave Streptococcus the ability to cause deadly disease
Susan Brink
for National Geographic
PUBLISHED APRIL 15, 2014

By examining decades’ worth of stored bacteria samples, researchers have determined how a benign organism evolved into a deadly pathogen that causes necrotizing fasciitis, commonly known as flesh-eating bacteria disease.
Using genetic sequences from more than 3,600 strains of bacteria, scientists were able to see that it took only four steps to create the unusual microbe that spreads rapidly and destroys the body’s soft tissue. Their report was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Necrotizing fasciitis is caused by several types of bacteria, most commonly group A Streptococcus. (See images of Streptococcus and other microbes in the “Small, Small World” photo gallery.) An international group of researchers sequenced the genomes of group A strep bacteria in samples that had been collected from as early as the 1920s. Those sequences revealed that sometime in the past, group A strep was infected with first one virus and then soon after with another. With each infection, the bacterium gained viral genes that made group A strep more likely to cause disease.
"The third event was a mutation of a single letter of the genome of the organism to create an even more virulent form," said the study’s main author, James Musser, director of the Center for Molecular and Translational Human Infectious Diseases Research at the Houston Methodist Research Institute in Texas. That mutation probably occurred in the late 1960s.
Then, in the early 1980s, the bacterium acquired another piece of foreign DNA, which carried the code for two toxins that cause necrotizing fasciitis’s worst effects. “We were off and running with a strain that had increased ability to spread in humans and to cause a more severe form of disease,” Musser said.
A Long Search for Answers
The new research would not have been possible without the foresight of several international collaborators who saved comprehensive samples of this kind of bacteria for many decades. That let scientists study how the organism evolved over all that time.
"If you simply sequenced the samples from today, you really wouldn’t understand how and when it flipped from a bad pathogen to a really bad pathogen," Musser said.
Musser has been gripped with curiosity about the flesh-eating disease since Muppets creator Jim Henson died of the infection in 1990. At that time a new field of research—bacterial population genetics—was just beginning. “This has been my white whale for almost 25 years,” Musser said.
Today about 650 to 800 Americans become infected with flesh-eating bacteria each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The bacteria infect layers of membranes and connective tissue around muscle, nerves, fat, and blood vessels. The toxins made by the bacteria destroy the tissue they infect, causing it to die.
Healthy people with strong immune systems who carefully clean and care for cuts, scrapes, and insect bites are usually able to fight off the bacteria. But people with compromised immune systems or with conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, or cancer are more vulnerable.
Jacqueline Roemmele was one such unlucky person. She became infected in 1994 after the cesarean section birth of her twins. “Before they found what it was, my flesh was falling off in the nurses’ hands,” she said. Roemmele survived and went on to found, with Donna Batdorff, the National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation.
The new discovery “is very exciting,” Roemmele said. “This is the first time I’ve heard of science ripping apart how this actually happens to explain: Why did this become a supercharged bacteria? …This gives us greater insight into why it happens.”
There is still a lot of work that needs to be done toward finding methods to prevent, treat, and cure necrotizing fasciitis. But this study shows that analyzing the timing of the molecular events that lead to global epidemics can help to monitor and predict the emergence of deadly infectious diseases.
"This is the first time we’ve been able to sort out the precise events that give rise to bacterial epidemics," said Musser. "We need to understand the general rules in order to understand epidemics. This is the first understanding of that."

    Can I water this flower?


    “Through the greenwood going / I saw a blue violet growing / I saw it start to wither / Can I water this flower?”


    Small boys learn this rhyme when they are still in the kindergarten, and they sing it to girls on Easter Monday. They promptly sprinkle the girls with eau de cologne — without waiting for an answer, of course. Many young men, even older men, do the same, though the range of verses at their disposal is rather wider, sometimes more sophisticated, occasionally more spicy.


    This practice goes back to an old country custom. On Easter Monday, young farmhands are allowed to throw a bucket of cold well water over girls of marriageable age; and even to dip them in a stream. The girls scream and resist, but are secretly delighted. Now eau de cologne has mainly replaced the water. A few splashes, rather than a costly bucketful, suffice. The ritual now involves women of all ages, married or unmarried, with female relations just as much a target as girlfriends, neighbors and work colleagues.


    The day still has special significance for unmarried women and girls. They wear pretty clothes and await the unannounced arrival of their admirers. Girls take a pride in attracting many visitors and “waterers.” After the boy has carried out his ritual role, he is offered gaily painted eggs, home-baked cookies, and an alcoholic drink. He is then free to go on to the next girl. The sprinkling with water and the gift of Easter eggs is a pre-Christian fertility symbol far older than the celebration of Easter.

     
  15. Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here’s how.

    boomeyer:

    I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

    Learning to code elevates your professional life, and makes you more knowledgeable about the massive changes taking place in the technology sector that are poised to have an immense influence on human life.

    (note: yes I realize that 3/5 of those links were Google projects)

    But most folks are intimidated by coding. And it does seem intimidating at first. But peel away the obscurity and the difficulty, and you start to learn that coding, at least at its basic level, is a very manageable, learnable skill.

    There are a lot of resources out there to teach you. I’ve found a couple to be particularly successful. Here’s my list of resources for learning to code, sorted by difficulty:

    Novice

    Never written a line of code before? No worries. Just visit one of these fine resources and follow their high-level tutorials. You won’t get into the nitty-gritty, but don’t worry about it for now:

    Dash - by General Assembly

    CodeAcademy

    w3 Tutorials (start at HTML on the left sidebar and work your way down)


    Intermediate

    Now that you’ve gone through a handful of basic tutorials, it’s time to learn the fundamentals of actual, real-life coding problems. I’ve found these resources to be solid:

    Khan Academy

    CodeAcademy - Ruby, Python, PHP

    Difficult

    If you’re here, you’re capable of building things. You know the primitives. You know the logic control statements. You’re ready to start making real stuff take shape. Here are some different types of resources to turn you from someone who knows how to code, into a full-fledged programmer.

    Programming problems

    Sometimes, the challenges in programming aren’t how to make a language do a task, but just how to do the task in general. Like how to find an item in a very large, sorted list, without checking each element. Here are some resources for those types of problems

    Talentbuddy

    TopCoder

    Web Applications

    If you learned Python, Django is an amazing platform for creating quick-and-easy web applications. I’d highly suggest the tutorial - it’s one of the best I’ve ever used, and you have a web app up and running in less than an hour.

    Django Tutorial

    I’ve never used Rails, but it’s a very popular and powerful framework for creating web applications using Ruby. I’d suggest going through their guide to start getting down-and-dirty with Rails development.

    Rails Guide

    If you know PHP, there’s an ocean of good stuff out there for you to learn how to make a full-fledged web application. Frameworks do a lot of work for you, and provide quick and easy guides to get up and running. I’d suggest the following:

    Cake PHP Book

    Symfony 2 - Get Started

    Yii PHP - The Comprehensive Guide

    Conclusion


    If there’s one point I wanted to get across, it’s that it is easier than ever to learn to code. There are resources on every corner of the internet for potential programmers, and the benefits of learning even just the basics are monumental.

    If you know of any additional, great resources that aren’t listed here, please feel free to tweet them to me @boomeyer.

    Best of luck!
