Strike on Gaza market ‘kills 15’ - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-28571785


At least 15 people have been killed and 160 wounded in an Israeli strike that hit a market near Gaza City, Palestinian officials say.

The explosion hit a busy fruit and vegetable market in Shejaiya, east of Gaza City, where hundreds of Palestinians were shopping, a spokesman for the Gaza health ministry said.

The attack came during a four-hour truce called by the Israeli military.

Hamas, which controls Gaza, had rejected the truce as meaningless.

Palestinian doctors said another Israeli air strike after the truce was announced had killed seven people in Khan Younis.

Earlier, the UN said Israel had attacked a UN-run school housing refugees in Gaza, despite warnings that civilians were there. Fifteen people were killed and dozens hurt.

More than 1,300 Palestinians and 55 Israelis have now died in the conflict. Most of the Palestinian deaths have been civilians.


A MARKET.

Maybe the poor should stop job-hoarding if they want jobs available.

That same First Year Biology Major

I had to look up what ‘job hoarder’ meant and holy fucking shit there are people in this world who think that people are maintaining multiple minwage (and lower than minwage in the case of restaurant serving or harvesting crops or working under the table etc) jobs BECAUSE THEY JUST LOVE TO DO SHITTY WORK THAT MUCH and/or out of spite or some shit?

They’re going on my wendigo list.

U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

The U.S. funds genocide, plain & simple.

So, Man of Steel and the new Godzilla are metaphors for the War on Terrorism, right?

That’s the moral, that sometimes innocent people have to die for the common good. Sure, Godzilla is the kind of thing that’s going to casually take down a bridge loaded with buses full of children, and Superman decides to fight Zod in the middle of a major city, but think about what the alternative is. Sometimes, the drones kill terrorists, and sometimes the drones kill children. But it’s all for the common good.

It’s sort of like how action heroes used to be alone and outgunned, and now the new PG-13 Expendables is about twenty-seven heroes hunting down one villain and some background extras. It’s a different set of core values.

jfc

now we’ve gone from ‘he can’t save everyone’ to ‘collateral damage’

your ‘core values’ are //horrifying//

this whole article was a whiny self-indulgent diatribe that willfully misinterpreted the complaints about man of steel, that acknowledges the critical consensus but manages to make it into a persecution complex, and that plus this comment are //really fucking telling//.

like if your defense of man of steel boils down to ‘you’re dumb’ then you’re not even engaging with the actual movie yourself, what you’re defending isn’t man of steel but that you liked it.

I’ve seen this image going around, and I feel compelled to point out that it’s only half-right. It’s true that high heels were originally a masculine fashion, but they weren’t originally worn by butchers - nor for any other utilitarian purpose, for that matter.
High heels were worn by men for exactly the same reason they’re worn by women today: to display one’s legs to best effect. Until quite recently, shapely, well-toned calves and thighs were regarded as an absolute prerequisite for male attractiveness. That’s why you see so many paintings of famous men framed to show off their legs - like this one of George Washington displaying his fantastic calves:

… or this one of Louis XIV of France rocking a fabulous pair of red platform heels (check out those thighs!):

… or even this one of Charles I of England showing off his high-heeled riding boots - note, again, the visual emphasis on his well-formed calves:

In summary: were high heels originally worn by men? Yes. Were they worn to keep blood off their feet? No at all - they were worn for the same reason they’re worn today: to look fabulous.

so then how did they become a solo feminine item of attire?

A variety of reasons. In France, for example, high heels fell out out of favour in the court of Napoleon due to their association with aristocratic decadence, while in England, the more conservative fashions of the Victorian era regarded it as indecent for a man to openly display his calves.
But then, fashions come and go. The real question is why heels never came back into fashion for men - and that can be laid squarely at the feet of institutionalised homophobia. Essentially, heels for men were never revived because, by the early 20th Century, sexually provocative attire for men had come to be associated with homosexuality; the resulting moral panic ushered in an era of drab, blocky, fully concealing menswear in which a well-turned calf simply had no place - a setback from which men’s fashion has yet to fully recover.

FASHION HISTORY IS HUMAN HISTORY OK

Thank you, history side of tumblr. That “stay out of blood” thing has been driving me mad.

Wait. So, you’re telling me that the reason straight boys dress horribly is because they’re not over a 100 year old gay panic?
You’re telling me that the gross, baggy, shapeless menswear that has been almost singlehandedly ruining my life is the result of a bunch of dudes in the 1900’s collectively going ‘AAAAH WHAT IF THEY THINK WE’RE GAY’
Fuck that shit. BRING BACK MENS HEELS
BRING BACK MENS TIGHTS
MAKE MEN SEXY AGAIN

That last comment speaks to me so deeply that it puts the ocean to shame v.v Seriously straight boys, get your shit together. I could go on a rant about the hideous so called “style” that is men’s clothing. ugh.

also another thing, it was a display of wealth. Good, nice heels weren’t cheap, not every peasant could afford them.It was, like many things, a status symbol, and most often displayed by wealthy men. (And may actually be something that women were not supposed to wear at all due to the fashions being dresses and long skirts, so seeing the female leg, especially one that was displayed well by a nice heel, was not something that happened).

Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff

My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk. 

My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2

My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits. 
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving

Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s. 

As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!
