anon-i-mus: WORLD EGO AWARENESS DAY - MAY 11 2020 On May 11th, we observe  World Ego Awareness Day (WEAD). We ask for your participation in this growing global movement to raise social awareness about the Egotism. While we hope that people will educate themselves and others throughout the year, this dedicated day gives us the opportunity to collaborate and amplify each other’s understanding. The Ego Awareness Movement and WEAD was established in 2018 to support all those that are affected with this mental condition and work towards preventing others from experiencing the effects of this invisible form of abuse. Through education and advocacy we can help reduce the number of people throughout the world who fall victim to egotism; to increase their ability to be centered in present-moment-awareness and experience life to the fullest.  Ego Awareness Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding egotism; encouraging everyone to be mindful, raise our consciousness and speak out against narcissistic or egotistic learned behavior. Together we can work to inform, educate, deter and prevent one of the major causes of human suffering on our planet. Research has shown that being influenced by the effects of the unobserved egoic mind can be responsible for most of our afflictions including a false sense of superiority, inferiority complex, prejudices, judging others, manipulation, rage, addictions, stress, violence, racism, sexism, the need for praise, approval, being reactionary, lack of empathy, loneliness, despair, false propaganda, religious and tribal wars and so on. All such negative and destructive traits have serious consequences in our personal relationships and the world at large. Why participate? Many people who suffer from egotism, which is a learned form of psychological and emotional abuse, are not even aware that what they are experiencing is this type of abuse.  When they become aware that they are a perpetrator or the one that is being abused, they have a difficult time articulating or describing it because it’s so hard to put a finger on. Therefore, resources for survivors have been made available. What can you do?  Join the movement.  Like-minded people, organizations and communities can help share information on this subject with their audience through various channels such as social media, blog pages, local events and community involvement.  You can also show support by distributing our ego awareness pamphlets and/or wearing badges. Talk to other advocates and other organizations dedicated to mindfulness, awareness, life-coaching, self-help, spirituality and so forth.  Organize events or incorporate messaging into existing events in order to educate your audience about egotism. We look forward to your participation this year!

drakeshady: I know most people don’t care, but here’s the real answer. Snapchat built a shitty Android app. On iOS, Snapchat uses the phone’s camera directly to take a picture, ensuring the highest possible quality. On Android, Snapchat opens the camera, but then takes a screenshot, instead of telling the camera to take a picture. This means that the camera never gets to adjust it’s focus and lighting, or provide stabilization to the picture. Instead, you get the best that shaky human hands can get, which means low quality pictures. Due to the popularity of Snapchat, this difference actually spreads the superiority complex of iOS. Android manufacturers have been innovating new hardware since the creation of cell phones. Apple only upgrades when they’re worried about being seen as outdated, or they need “new features” to push their phone. It also shows that iPhones are a status symbol, that have no reason to be as expensive as they are. To be fair to Apple, they’ve built a consistent ecosystem. If you have an iPhone, you can pick up any other iPhone and know how it works. Android is different by design however, with literally anyone free to modify it as they want to. Whether that is to fit certain hardware, or add new features, or meet a specific artistic design, Android has more total devices, support for more hardware configurations (even laptops) and is available for anyone to use however they want. Snapchat made a deliberate poor design decision, and should shoulder the blame for their shitty app. But that would require supporting the largest userbase in the world over their elite base of iPhone users. : Phoebe News @holiestbritney Then why do android snapchat stories look like surveillance tapes #KanyeForPresident @The.

This is such a good movement: I hadn't seen any English reports on this but its too good not to So right now there are pretty crazy right-wing nationalist sexists in Japan. They're dressing up in WWIl military outfits, they're standing outside of Korean schools (in Japan) shouting that Koreans should be killed, and just generally being horrible human beings. For reasons unknown, the Japanese police haven't done anything to stop them, and when people get physical with the right-wingers and a fight breaks out, it's not the right-wing people who get punished. Enter: the Yakuza Yakuza, for those who don't know, is the name for the world of Japanese gangs, commonly known for being covered in tattoos. A few retired yakuza members (most of whom are notoriously and vocally conservative) got tired of this extreme right wing BS. They believe that picking on people who are weaker than you, like the children at the Korean schools or refugees, is embarrassing, and not something to be proud of. They want these right wingers to man up (the group is almost entirely men) These old retired yakuzas start showing up at the right wing protests and intimidate the hell out of these guys. When they feel like it, they'll use physical force too. The police don't mess with the yakuza so these right wing protesters become human punching bags. All their talk of killing Koreans or their superiority to just about everyone flies out the window when these gangsters roll up. It started with only one or two yakuza who were bored and fed up, but more and more started to come. They started training in boxing and street fighting, and wouldn't you know it... the number of right wing protesters got less and less. Then, people of other walks of life joined in too. With the yakuza throwing the police off professors could join by writing about the issues profusely. Suddenly a ton of otakus joined too, using their art and community to protest. They'd show up in droves and stand behind the muscle (yakuza) and make a ton of noise. They literally staged an "otakus against racists" rally TAKU AGAINST Slowly, the protests have seen the right wing attendance drop more and more and I am living for these "manly men" being trashed by retired gangsters and fans of Love Live. In conclusion First, I'd like the extreme right wing to gtfo Second, l'd like a manga, then an anime, about these yakuza who befriended professors and otakus to fight neo-nazis. K? cool. 50,371 notes お兄ちゃん This is such a good movement

Because I realize all my characters do is look at each other and have their eyebrows shoot up. Sometimes they even lower their eyebrows too! : Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers All body language must be considered in context, but if you've set your scene and established your characters, a little body language can help! Anger Distress Anger is one expression of fight-or-flight mode an automatic, instinctive reaction to a threat. In many cases, there is an underlying fear of being harmed. Thanks to autonomic nervous system arousal, the heart rate increases, pupils dilate and the face may flush. Other signs of anger: Men in particular have a tendency to stroke or rub the nape of the neck when they're upset. It acts as a self-soothing gesture to deal with a "pain in the neck. Crossed arms arms act like a protective barrier Self-hugging- arms are crossed, hands gripping upper arms One-arm cross one arm crosses the body to hold or touch the other arm women keep a hand on a purse or bag strap to make this look more natural Clutching a purse, briefcase, or bag with both arms Adjusting cuffs or cuff-links (men's version of the purse-strap grab) Folding the hands together in front of the crotch (men) " Balling the fists Crossing the arms tightly Clenching the fists once arms are crossed Tight-lipped smile Clenched teeth Shaking a finger like a club Stabbing a finger at someone - " " - Attraction " " Pupils dilate - Women will cross and uncross legs to - draw attention to them Mirroring (usually unconsciously) mimicking the other person's body anguage Lying Lying causes a subtle tingling in the face and neck, so the gestures below are attempts to eliminate that feeling Closed to Conversation - Covering the mouth can be like a shh Keeping the hands in the pockets (esp men) gesture, or they may cover the mouth completely some people try to cover it by coughing Touching or rubbing the nose or just below the nose often a quick, small gesture, not a scratch Rubbing the eyes (especially men) Scratching the neck with the index finger Arms and legs crossed " Sitting back - Folding the hands together on a table .
