Jackie Parker was Flight controller at NASA at 18. She didn’t stay there, she went on the become the first woman to attend the US Air force Test Pilot School as a pilot. As a matter of fact, she had learned to fly, before she could drive. She resigned the air force in 1996 and has been working in computer Hardware ever since.
You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick.
Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man wildlife conservation and his children will be able to eat fish too.
The whole thing is shameful, but not surprising. There is no doubt that under a Republican president, this bill would have passed with large bipartisan support. So the Republicans don’t seem to stand for anything if they might have to share the credit. What I wonder now is if Americans (and above all, the mainstream press) will continue to treat the Republican Party as though it is the party that is most supportive of the military. I’m not at all sure it will have any effect. For a long time it has been clear that the Republican Party isn’t pro-military, it is pro-war. Republican politicians are always in favor of war and that is not at all how one would act if one were interested in supporting the troops.

"Check out my transformation! It took me 15 minutes. Wanna know my secret? Well firstly I ditched the phonewallet cause that shit is lame, swapped my bather bottoms to black (cause they’re a size bigger & black is slimming), smothered on some fake tan, clipped in my hair extensions, stood up a bit taller, sucked in my guts, popped my hip- threw in a skinny arm, stood a bit wider #boxgap, pulled my shoulders back and added a bit of a cheeky “I’m so proud of my results” smile. Zoomed in on the before pic- zoomed out on the after & added a filter. Cause filters make everything awesome.
What’s my point? Don’t be deceived by what you see in magazines & on Instagram. You never see the dozens of other pics they took that weren’t as flattering.”
Simulating the tagging of fish to see what we can learn so that we can tag fish and learn stuff about them.
Marine Biology and Fisheries, University of Miami
This tells me that maybe I should move to Oregon to study/work in marine biology? Cheapest state that’s still by a coast…
But also at least I know that if I do go to Miami for grad school, my rent should be roughly half the price it would be/is now in Hawaii…
It also baffles me that minimum wage in HI is still the federal $7.25/hr. Whyyyy?????
Organismal Biology, Scripps College.
Feeding behavior of Nucella ostrina on Balanus glandula.
Me. Every single day in my college classes.
