College, Dad, and Friends: smitethepatriarchy: nprglobalhealth: She May Be The Most Unstoppable Scientist In The World Dauqan is a woman scientist in what’s possibly the hardest place on Earth to be just a woman: Yemen. The World Economic Forum ranks Yemen as the worst country for women’s rights. In Yemen, it’s illegal for women to just leave the house without permission from a male relative. Even as a young girl, she was rebel. “I was a little naughty,” she says with a snicker. Read her incredible story here She liked breaking rules. And proving people wrong. So when her parents told her she might not have the smarts to go into science and engineering — like her dad — Eqbal thought: Watch me.“I told my father, ‘I’ve heard a lot about scientists in chemistry. What is the difference between me and them? So I want to try,” she says.And she did more than try. She crushed it. She was the first among her friends to finish college. Then she got a scholarship to do her Ph.D. in biochemistry at the Universiti Kebansaan Malaysia, where she studied the nutritional properties of palm oil. Read the full story here When little girls in the Middle East see photos of Eqbal as a chemist — wearing a head scarf, measuring pH — they don’t need to use their imagination to think: “I could be just like her. I could be a scientist.” Please rule us.

America, Bad, and Barber: MY PAIN MAY BE THE REASON FOR SOMEBODY'S LAUGH BUT MY LAUGH MUST NEVER BE THE REASON FOR SOMEBODY'S PAIN. CHARLIE CHAPLIN idrils: stele3: anexperimentallife: sinbadism: kevinbolk: berrythehatchet: impudentstrumpet: kevinbolk: A philosophy I very much live my life by. Yeah, too bad he was a Nazi. was he? shit I’m assuming by “he was a Nazi” you meant he played a PARODY of Hitler in a MOVIE and in that same movie he also plays a barber who disguises himself as said Hitler parody and delivers one of the greatest anti-fascist speeches of all time. It’s okay. It’s an easy mistake to make. Literally where does someone come up with the idea that a Polish immigrant with heavy leftist leanings is in any way a Nazi In fact, Chaplin was harshly criticized by the American far right for being very anti-Nazi in the period leading up to America’s entry into World War 2, and many lambasted his film, “The Great Dictator,”–in which he parodied and ridiculed Hitler–as “anti-German” and “war-mongering.” The Nazis themselves, as well as the Nazi sympathizers and supporters of the American far right, hated him. Chaplin’s films were banned in Nazi Germany, and Nazi propaganda smeared him constantly. (Part of the smear was claiming he was Jewish–which he was not, but calling someone Jewish in Nazi Germany was guaranteed to inflame public sentiment against them.) Chaplin was concerned with social issues like homelessness, and was a liberal and an anti-Nazi at a time when to be either one (let along both) was to be accused of being a Communist–which at the time was pretty one of the worst things you could call someone–and indeed “anti-American.” (Because, again, American conservatives loved them some Nazis–right up until the time Hitler’s forces started invading other countries–and even then, the bulk of the US thought we shouldn’t “interfere” in what they saw as a strictly European affair.) Even after the war, and even after the world realized the despicable things the Nazis had done, Chaplin couldn’t shake the “Communist” and “anti-American” accusations from conservative American “journalists,” politicians, and others on the far right, who were still angry with him for his pre-war anti-Nazi sentiments. And when he refused to participate in the McCarthy’s “Red Scare” Communist witch-hunts of the early 1950s, he was banned from re-entering the United States, while on a trip to England. In short, Chaplin’s ANTI-NAZI leanings made him so many enemies in the US that they set off a chain of events that eventually saw him kicked out of the country. Oh, sure, the US finally issued a formal apology and invited him back, but by that time, his response was pretty much, “Yeah, too little, too late.” And justifiably so. Chaplin stood against everything the Nazis stood for, and was smeared and punished for it. So don’t you fucking dare call Charlie Chaplin a Nazi.  Dishonor on you. Dishonor on your family. Dishonor on your cow. The Nazis hated Charlie Chaplin so much they listed him in their Big Book of Jewish Enemies, despite him being gentile. No, really: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1579971/Nazi-propaganda-book-targeted-Charlie-Chaplin.html #getting listed in the big book of jewish enemies even as a gentile is some kind of goals

STAY SAFE SPREAD AWARENESS, AND REPOST two-bendys-one-blog: ATTENTION!! There’s this huge problem spreading across amino, and possibly other social media platforms, and it would be horrible to have this happen to anybody else. There is this horrible thing going around popular aminos called ‘The Blue Whale Challenge’, which is an app that has a link to it. If you do get a link to it from ANYBODY, I advise to immediately block them, and report them. This 50 day challenge, also known as ‘The Blue Whale Game’ is reported to have you do various things to harm yourself, or put yourself in immediate danger. These things include cutting yourself in various ways, (cutting into major veins, carving symbols into your body, generally harming yourself, etc.) going on top of buildings and standing close to the edge, attempting to climb a crane, talking to others suffering the same ordeal, etc. On the 50th day, they tell you to take your life. Jump from a building. Do not do any of this, EVER. There are people that care for you, and there would be people that would miss you horribly. Call the suicide hotline. Get help. Please, stay safe. Do not do this to yourself. If you download this app, they hack into your electronic device and find all of your personal information, and make it so that you can’t remove or delete the app. They will use whatever they can get against you. Your credit card, tell you that they will hunt down your loved ones and kill them, anything. The person that created this game may have been arrested, but there are people still sending the links for this game. Please, spread awareness about this problem so we can stop it before it starts. Stay safe, because I care. There are others that do too. Please, once again, stay safe, and do not download this app, or joke about it in any way.

Anaconda, Ass, and Billboard: INSIDER "...it's different than when you had to start out..." IN totalariana: c-bassmeow: totalariana: c-bassmeow: arianacopyingmariah: arianasus-christ: c-bassmeow: arianacopyingmariah: 👀  👸🏽 actually mother arianasus grandechrist has had 7 number one records and has had 2 number one albums in less than a year so stay mad ari doesn’t even have one billboard hot 100 #1 single quick lil itunes #1s don’t count @arianacopyingmariah THANK YOU! Like what universe were they referring to where Ariana has 7 #1’s 😂😂 I’m never gonna see what these petty comparisons actually solve like even as jokes they’re tired. Yeah Ariana doesn’t have a Billboard Number one single but she does have two Billboard Number one albums. It doesn’t make her any less valid or any less talented of an artist simply because she doesn’t have a Billboard #1 and shit like Meghan Trainor has one and her ass can’t sing to save her life. Ariana is also the only artist to have all three of her first singles off all three of her albums DEBUT in the top ten meaning they didn’t have to slowly climb the charts to get there. So you know what have your petty little jokes because Ariana out here doing her and Mariah is out here doing Game of War ads or whatever  Why r you complaining when you were the one spitting out inaccurate “facts” . Don’t be mad Cus we fact checked you I didn’t spit out those facts I’m very aware Ariana doesn’t have any #1′s single wise so you didn’t fact check me I know my shit it was obviously a very misinformed stan.  Lmaoo I confused ur blogs Cus Im too cute to pay attention to Ariana blogs 👸🏽
