Anaconda, Target, and Tumblr: Joe Parris @KTVBJoe #Breaking-About 100 goats are on the loose right now in a #Boise neighborhood. They are going house to house eating everything in sight. Nobody has a clue where they came from...updates to follow wingedkiare: morathor: tastefullyoffensive: The goatpocalypse is upon us. (via KTVBJoe) Updates have since come on this subject; we now know where the goats came from and I gotta tell you, it is better than you could possibly imagine.  See. These goats got loose from a goat rental service. You may be thinking, who rents a goat?  Who rents a hundred goats?  What are they for? They’re for eating. Specifically, they’re for eating unwanted, flammable vegetation that can contribute to the spread of wildfires.  Some people whose property tends to grow such vegetation, keep their own goats.  But for some people it works out better to just rent some goats. So. These are Professional Eating Goats.  They are trained to thoroughly and methodically scour an area of plantlife.  And they came to the suburbs. And they did their jobs. I’m so proud of them. I can confirm that’s what kind of goats they are - they use them here in LA in the canyon areas to help keep all those pretty buildings and homes safe from wildfire (it isn’t uncommon to see goats near the Getty Museum). Because the terrain is just too weird for people to climb and clear brush - but goats? Totally their jam.

BUSINESS INSIDER jadelyn: chronic-illness-cat: titleknown: hueva-york: la-bufadora: businessinsider: Infographic: 7 Reasons This Is An Excellent Resume For Someone With No Experience yoooo what i need by tomorrow AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Reblogging because I WISH I HAD FUCKING KNOWN ABOUT THIS IN HIGH SCHOOL YEARS AGO! Dear sick Kitties, Please save this to your computer because one day you might be well enough to work in some capacity and it’s unfair for you to have blank spots on your resume/CV. You have worth and validity even if you don’t have a huge work history. YOU have value. This is mostly really good, but I have a couple minor disagreements.  So…here are three recommendations from an HR person who reads a shitton of resumes every day: Move the skills section up to the top!  You know what I give a fuck about the most when I’m reading a resume (at least for entry-level positions)?  WHAT YOU CAN DO.  I frankly don’t give a shit where you learned it.  Tell me what you’re capable of in concrete terms, organized in a bullet-points list or table that I can quickly scan to see if you even stand a chance of matching what we need, because that is all I’m doing in those critical first couple of seconds that decides whether I even bother looking at the rest of the resume.  (Which I get sounds kinda callous but when I have to get through a couple dozen resumes, meaning download, open, read, decide what to do, forward it to the appropriate person if it makes the cut with my comments/summary/recommendations, file it appropriately and go on to the next one, and get back to my other duties and responsibilities - which I don’t have enough hours in the day for as it is - I can’t afford to depth-read every single resume that hits my inbox.) Include volunteer experience as work experience if you have any.  Running the concession stand at a high school club event of some kind counts as cash handling and customer service experience.  Making blog themes for your friends counts as web design experience.  Just because you weren’t getting paid doesn’t mean it wasn’t work experience you can potentially leverage to get actual paying work. Rework that top statement - in its current form it’s looking like some odd hybrid of an executive summary (good!) and an objective statement (bad!), and I’m not sure how I feel about it tbh.  I think it’s the “leveraging…to positively contribute” bit that is pushing all my “ugh no fucking shit sherlock” buttons.  Like…what were you going to say, that you want to skate along doing the bare minimum amount of work and you don’t give a shit about the organization’s goals?  I see way too many regurgitated statements like that - “positively contribute” and “maximize success” and “utilize my skills to further goals” etc. - and they just make my eyes roll out of my head at this point because they’re so generically corporate.  I’d rather see a declarative statement about what you are and what you can do, than what you want. However, huge massive bonus points for putting language fluency right there at the top where I don’t have to go hunting for it - language skills are ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS A PLUS and you want to highlight that shit as hard as you can.  Shove that language fluency in my fucking face, PLEASE.  Better that than having to scour your work history for mention of translation or anything like that, which I will only do if I’m A: already liking your qualifications so far, and B: totally fucking desperate for someone who speaks goddamn Spanish already.

Anaconda, Bad, and Friends: Lifting to Failure Good or Bad? One muscle fiber (cell) One fascicle (bundle of muscle fibers) Connective tissue Muscle Myofibril Blood vessels and nerves Tendon @strengthcoachtherapy strengtt Myofibrils Striations Nucleus A review of literature and best practice SHOULD YOU LIFT TO FAILURE? - 🚀 The answer: It depends! Usually no, but maybe sometimes yes. @strengthcoachtherapy explains below, and I agree with every word. . 🤔 Lifting to failure is 100% not necessary for gainz and progress. If done too much, it can even hinder progress. For many novice lifters, going to failure is overused and overrated. Sorry bro, but you don't need to scour the gym looking for a spot for every bench press set. Just lift. . ❌ For compound lifts, missing reps can be downright dangerous (squat, bench, deadlift). This is when training injuries happen. Going to failure is much safer when you are performing single joint exercises. Examples include hamstring curls, machine work, lateral raises, arms, etc. These are low risk movements and failing can be helpful to tax smaller muscle groups. . ✅ Failing reps and pushing it to the limit can be be helpful for hypertrophy work and creating maximal oxidative stress. It's also sometimes necessary for power and oly lifters to truly find and push their max. Overall, it is still more advised for bodybuilding techniques. Failing should also be used less frequently as you get stronger and closer to your genetic potential. . 🤓 Smart training is all about weighing cost versus benefit. Even if you can get away with failing now, it has the potential to cause problems down the road. (Looking at you, young lifters). Furthermore, lifting to your 1 rep maximum on a weekly basis is not a wise way to structure your training. Try a reps day, a light day, and a heavy day, instead of putting all 3 into everyday. . 🙅🏽‍♂️ Lifelong gains are made by maximizing reward and minimizing risk. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Don't make missing reps a habit, the benefit is minimal if any at all. Trust me my friends, you can still train hard and reach your goals by finishing your lifts. .

Love, Scream, and Struggle: THE BEST THINGS TO REMEMBER when writing a highly emotional scene Show, don't tell; it's the golden rule of writing. I get it, you hear it everywhere you turn, and by now (even if you don't totally get it), you've become desensitized to the mantra. It's actually a pretty hard thing to master. Believe or not, all writers struggle to show, but I hope this lesson will help you out! NO EMOTION WORDS USE ACTION No, your character isn't sad, happy, devastated, in pain, angry, nervous, scared, or worried. Don't use words like this that describe emotions They cut down on the hit of your scene, and they're harder for readers to connect to/get emotional over Instead of being angry, your character is screaming, has their fists tightly clenched, and is trembling. See what I did? I took the emotion, thought of how to show it, and used that instead. It adds a little oomph, and it's more sensory for your reader USE SETTING USE PERCEPTIONS I dig this one. Your character is sad? No, your character is suddenly seeing their lover not as their lover, but something they just lost in battle. Their perception of what that person is changed. Love turns to loss, smiling turns to tears. Nothing is the same after the emotional action hits Your character is happy? Yeah, no they're not. Your character is noticing the tiniest, most delicate things about their new car that are, in all honesty, kind of weird to notice on just a normal car. When you love something, you notice more. When it makes you sad, you try to close it out. See? GO OUT OF BOUNDS High emotion often means lovw ability to think things through. It's okay to make your character wander from their borders during highly emotional moments. Make themm kick, scream, kiss harder, throw stuff, break down sobbing, knock out some teeth. I promise, it's okay! You're not out of bounds! USE DIALOGUE Angry? You'll say things you really don't mean. Sad? You'll hide the truth. Happy? You'll confess. Use these human faults to vour advantage. Alter your character's dialogue, word choice, and ability to open up during highly emotional scenes to portray what they feel through their words! PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! This is not easy to master. It seems simple, but it can be frustrating time consuming, and confusing. Take some time to sit and make lists. Scour your piece for emotion words, and replace them with other representations of that emotion. Get a little frustrated! It's okay to have to practice this, and if you do regularly and the right way, you will get better. It just takes time.

But it has to be &ldquo;reasonable fear&rdquo;, not just &ldquo;that person made me nervous so I took a shot.&rdquo; Now what constitutes reasonable fear? It&rsquo;s a hairy issue for sure. But my main beef is that there would have been no attack if Zimmerman had not <strong><em>pursued what he thought was a suspicious individual against police orders.</em></strong> He was told to <em><strong>stay in his car</strong></em>. There was <em><strong>no reason for him to follow Martin</strong></em>. He placed himself in a potentially dangerous situation unnecessarily. Nobody knows exactly what happened then, but it was very poorly investigated. These are the real issues in this case. No one should be able to shoot somebody and then tell the police &ldquo;I thought he was a threat.&rdquo; and have the police go &ldquo;&lsquo;kay, seems legit. Peace!&rdquo; Otherwise anybody could go around shooting anyone else whenever they felt like it. If the police hadn&rsquo;t bombed the investigation, this wouldn&rsquo;t have become nearly as big a thing. </p>
