Animals, Clock, and England: T-Mobile LTE 6:43 PM 86%( -+ Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki Short version: scientist discovers that killing wolves disrupts wolf pack structure, leading to more livestock deaths, and therefore killing wolves doesn't work. He's since been sent countless death threats and has lost his credibility and reputation. The New York Times·@nytimes Rob Wielgus, one of America's pre-eminent experts on large carnivores, had no idea how unpopular he could get until he began to study wolves. His academic reputation is now in shreds. nyti.ms/2KCLSGA 7/7/18, 1:12 PM View Tweet activity 984 Retweets 1,478 Likes Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h For the record, farmers and hunter:s who know nothing about how the environment works outside the animals they profit from is absolutely nothing new. It's why wolves almost went extinct in the first place. They wanted that "hunter's paradise". 129 247 Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h It was believed that if you got rid of all the predator animals, then the livestock and prey animals could thrive. Turns out instead, the prey animals overpopulate, destroy their environment, and become less healthy overall. Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h This is why Yellowstone brought wolves back, for the record. Even then, people were furious at the notion and tried to stop it. But turns out wolves kept the numbers of the other animals in check, and the environment became healthy again. 3 24 257 Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h In spite of this, people still care more about their short term personal profits than the long-term damage of their actions, and still want wolves removed. No wonder the Republicans in this article compare wolves to Democrats. wolfnanaki: So one of my tweets kinda blew up. :v We learnt about this in the biology part of our gcse combined science course (you usually have to take gcse science in england).The basics of it is that predators need prey for food, and prey need predators for population control, meaning if the population of either one drops, the population of the other will have a corresponding reaction. Prey population drops - predator population drops - prey population rises - predator population rises - prey population dropsAnd so on.So, when an outside force (disease, humans) interferes, it interrupts the cycle. Imagine if you saw the inside of a clock and went why are there so many cogs? and just started taking them out. The clock wouldnt work. It is the same with any ecosystem.Now imagine if we were in the place of the wolves. We hunt prey and the cycle goes and everything is fine and balanced, but then someone is like no i want more prey and just kill us. The prey population goes up and this is when our (the predators) population would go up. But were being killed off. So prey just keep going up and up and up and the ecosystem goes all out of wack. Their food sourcr decreases, they starve, they die. But there is no external cause so it just keeps happening. Now there isnt any predators or prey. No ecosystem. Everythings dead. Well done.

Jack Nicholson’s character had to be crazy and angry all the time. And in my character I had to cry 12 hours a day, all day long, the last nine months straight, five or six days a week. I was there a year and a month, and there must be something to Primal Scream therapy, because after the day was over and I’d cried for my 12 hours … After all that work, hardly anyone even criticized my performance in it, even to mention it, it seemed like. The reviews were all about Kubrick, like I wasn’t there.” - Shelly Duvall, December 1980</p></blockquote> <p>To give a little more perspective on just how horrific this film was, I need to give people some information:</p> <p>Since retiring from acting in 2002, Shelley Duvall has lived a reclusive and isolated life. However, in November of 2016, <i><b>USA Today</b></i> reported that she appeared to be suffering from mental illness. And then later that month, to an incredible amount of hype, Shelley appeared on the <i><b>Dr. Phil</b></i> show where she basically looked unrecognisable, seemed delusional and talked about people trying to kill her. The episode basically confirmed there rumours.<br/></p> <p>You can find videos/clips of the interview on youtube, however I won’t link it because it’s upsetting and disrespectful.</p> <p>After the interview aired, Vivian Kubrick, daughter of <i><b>The Shining</b></i> director Stanley Kubrick, described the interview as “exploitative entertainment” and “appallingly cruel”. The show then received a lot of backlash (rightly so) and a number of other chat shows started discussing it (again, there’s some videos of these on youtube)</p> <p>Now, how does this all connect to <b>The Shining, </b>you ask? To quote Wikipedia:</p> <p>“Jack Nicholson states in the documentary <i><b>Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures</b></i>, that Kubrick was great to work with but that he was “<i>a different director</i>” with Duvall. Because of Kubrick’s methodical nature, principal photography took a <i>year</i> to complete. Kubrick and Duvall <i>argued frequently</i>, although Duvall later said she learned more from working with Kubrick on <i>The Shining</i> than she did on all her earlier films. In order to give <i>The Shining</i> the psychological horror it needed, director Stanley Kubrick <i>antagonised his actors.</i> The film’s script was changed so often that Nicholson stopped reading each draft. Kubrick <i><b>intentionally isolated Duvall and argued with her often.</b></i> Duvall was <i><b>forced to perform the iconic and exhausting baseball bat scene 127 times</b></i>. Afterwards, Duvall presented Kubrick with <i><b>clumps of hair that had fallen out due to the extreme stress of filming</b></i>.”</p> <p>One year of solid filming. She had to cry, panic and be scared for 12 hours a day, seven days a week, nine months straight. She was isolated and antagonised by the director. She had to perform the baseball bat scene 127 times in a row (that’s her crying and screaming, and Jack Nicholson being hit) And to top it all of, Jack and Kubrick get all the attention while she gets ignored?</p> <p>From my own personal experience of mental illness, being exposed to feelings of fear and distress for prolonged periods of time can cause the brain to learn and expect it. I’m not saying that filming <i>The Shining</i> caused Shelley Duvall to develop mental illness, I am <i><b>stating</b></i> that whether the movie brought out an existing condition, or prepared the bed for something to eventually develop, filming <i>The Shining</i> has a direct correlation with Shelley Duvall suffering from mental illness.</p> <p>Next time you watch the movie, bare that in mind. It’s much sadder.</p> <p><i>Side note: Three years prior to filming, her partner of two years, Paul Simon, walked off with her friend <b>Carrie Fisher</b>, after she introduced the two. So there’s that too.</i></p> </blockquote> <p>Far too many directors love/loved tormenting their lead actresses. Hitchcock, Lars von Trier, David O. Russell, Bertolucci, Abdellatif Kechiche, and many more. What’s especially insulting to Duvall is that not only was she subjected to this treatment, but her performance has been largely unappreciated and even often ridiculed. </p> </blockquote> <p>This is why any time people say what a ~masterpiece~ the shining is I have to roll my eyes. It’s especially frustrating when the convo is “lol yeah kubrik was the worst, but made a really good movie.” No, kubrik was awful, it’s awful and it’s shameful to celebrate that, period.</p> </blockquote> <p>(Not so) Fun fact: Stanley Kubrick was a far-right social darwinist who considered democracy “a noble failure”. It shows.</p> </blockquote> <p>Another fun fact: Stephen King HATES Kubrick’s The Shining because of how it portrayed Shelley’s character. He has said that Kubrick’s version made her into a sexist stereotype and not at all like the woman he wrote in his novel.</p> </blockquote> <p style="">God that’s awful.</p> <p>And you know, maybe people didn’t like her performance because she just looked like a wreck constantly, so Kubrick’s “method acting” actually made it worse. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>And you somehow have the fucking idiocy to be an anti-feminist?</p> </blockquote> <p>My dude, this has fuck all to do with feminism. Especially third wave feminism.</p> </blockquote> <p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>It has literally everything to do with feminism. Patriarchal society let Kubrick get away with it because he was a Genius™ and turned Shelley Duvall into a punchline.</p> </blockquote> <p>Female actors aren’t the only people who have awful experiences. Male actors have been abused as well and been documented many of times.(<a href="http://madamenoire.com/492931/men-who-were-sexually-assaulted/">x</a>)(<a href="https://screenrant.com/times-actors-were-completely-abused-on-movie-sets/">x</a>) Actors in general has had a history of abuse with their directors, from horrible treatments to sexual abuse for both male and female. Kubrick has abused his male actors too, but of course didn’t know that in our patriarchal society no didn’t you. This has nothing to do with feminism but directors being dicks to their actors for their personal gain or for their art. Get over yourself.</p></blockquote> <p>Directors being cruel megalomaniacs with a God complex is nothing new and certainly not exclusive to female actresses.</p><p>Also</p><p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>Saying everything like this</p><p>doesn’t make your point any stronger <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mWk_Fago5SyKpyXk-KOUmbw">@an-average-sized-person</a> </p>

Af, America, and Apparently: FOX NEWS .com Twisted Ivy: Harvard students say US bigger threat to world peace than ISIS Published October 08, 2014| FoxNews.com CAMPUS REFORM They got most of their SAT questions right, but students at Harvard blew this lay-up posed by the college blog Campus Reform: Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the U.S.? Various students at the hallowed Ivy League school said they believe that America, not the Muslim fanatics who behead innocent people, is the biggest threat to world peace. The students were interviewed on the quad by Campus Reform on Saturday, and the shocking video was posted on Tuesday As a Westem evization were to b taot af he pratwe'e facing now," one student said during an interview. "I don't think anyone would argue that we didn't create the problem of ISIS, ourselves." Most of the other students interviewed shared the same sentiment- that ISIS would not exist had it not been for the past actions of the U.S. American imperialism and our protection of oil interests in the Middle East are destabilizing the region and allowing groups like ISIS to gain power," said another student. Caleb Bonham, editor of Campus Reform, conducted the interviews and said that the students' response is nothing new. "This video demonstrates the absurdity behind the bash America fad," Bonham told FoxNews.com. "Unfortunately, too many students think it is intellectual to try and piece together a reason why America is a greater threat than this terrorist organization trying to establish a caliphate through public executions, bombings and beheadings zarekthelordofthefries: writingfail: thebaconsandwichofregret: lizzysmart: sandandglass: Fox News shocked that Harvard students think the US is a greater threat to world peace than ISIS.

(I’m not singling out America because I’m British and we’ve been fucking up the world since long before America has) I love how the Harvard students give strong arguments on why the U.S. (and its allies, of course, such as Canada and Western Europe) is one of the biggest threats to world peace and all Fox News can say is “this–this is just a FAD” I think it’s really notable that their answers inherently understand the question itself moreso than Fox does, too. The question isn’t “who are the worse people” or something, it’s “who causes the biggest threat to world peace.” It’s clear that Fox doesn’t even understand what they’re asking since their only argument for ISIS being the bigger threat to world peace is that they behead people. Like, yeah, beheading people is really fucking bad, but that doesn’t mean any serial killer who’s ever beheaded anyone is a major threat to world peace. They don’t grasp that it’s the systemic power of these forces and their historical abuse of that power that makes them threats, and that no moral or philosophical ideology will make the US a lesser threat to world peace (but of course they don’t fuckin get that power is the most important factor, they’re fuckin fascists).

America, Google, and Racism: BuzzFeed @BuzzFeed Follow A 19-year-old photographer is redefining what it means to be a black man in America bzfd.it/2nxgPpU blackfashion: the-real-eye-to-see: This Gorgeous Photo Series Crushes Stereotypes About Black Masculinity Loftin shot the photo series after seeing the stark contrast between the Google results for “black boy in hoodie” and “white boy in hoodie.” In contrast to the images of black men depicted in the Google image search, Loftin’s poses are sweet, affectionate, and sometimes silly. “Black people, and black men specifically, exist outside of the stereotypes that have been created for us by the media and those that control it,” he told. Source They always portray us as dangerous thugs in black hoodies, nothing new. And the fact that whites still believe that black people are dangerous to them proves just how ingrained white supremacism is in this country! This man just wanted to say that racism is still a reality we have to deal with. Inferential racism certainly won’t go away by no one talking about it. We have to accept that there is a serious problem in America, that many white Americans are raised with these subtle cues all around them telling them to “fear blacks”. Stop making up false stories about us, we are just people, just a little darker. Myles Loftin mylesloftinphotography.com we should start this thing where we place artist names in the title.
