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.

Lawyer, Memes, and The Game: The Game Faces Arrest Warrant After Skipping Out on Court Date October 3, 2018 at 7:32 am PDT By Ryan Naumann STORY via THE BLAST - “The Game attempted to skip out on a court hearing — citing his appearance on the “Wild N’ Out” — but the judge wasn’t interested in his excuses and issued a warrant for his arrest. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a judge found The Game in contempt of court for failing to appear for a hearing in his sexual assault case. The rapper had been ordered to show up, but he tried to claim he was too busy. Earlier this week, The Game filed court docs saying he had contractual obligations during October, including the final stretch of “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out Live.” Game claimed to have been trying to get all his financial information to turn over to Priscilla Rainey after he had been ordered to do. He asked the judge to allow his lawyer to represent him during the hearing. The judge wasn’t impressed and instead found the rapper in contempt and issued a bench warrant for his arrest. The warrant was stayed until October 5 at 9:00 AM, meaning the rapper has time to show up in court before he is arrested. Priscilla Rainey was a contestant on The Game’s VH1 reality show “She’s Got Game.” In her 2015 lawsuit, she claimed that during production, the rapper sexually assaulted her by forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks. A jury awarded her $7 million in damages. Rainey has accused The Game of refusing to turn over financial docs and at one point demanded he be found in contempt. She claimed he has yet to pay a dime on the judgment. The rapper demanded a new trial saying the judgment was too high but the judge recently shut him down saying the evidence proved Rainey’s case to the jury.” ( via @blast)

Animals, Bad, and Cars: 366 WTNT41 KNHC 102055 TCDAT1 Hurricane Florence Discussion Number 46 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 500 PM AST Mon Sep 10 2018 AL062018 Unfortunately, the models were right. Florence has rapidly intensifled into an extremely dangerous hurricane, with 30-second GOES-16 visible imagery showing well-defined eyewall mesovortices rotating inside of the eye. A NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft found peak SFMR winds of about 120 kt, with flight-level winds and dropsonde measurements also supporting that value for the initial wind speed estimate. Notably, the aircraft data also show the size of the hurricane-force winds has doubled in the past 12 hours thehmarie1089: your-reference-here: This is from the forecast discussion of Major Hurricane Florence from this afternoon. As a meteorologist, when I saw this, my heart sank. They don’t use wording like this for every storm. Florence is going to be a devastating. There will be huge amounts of flooding, both from inland rain and from costal storm surge. Winds are going to be some of the strongest you can get from a hurricane. People within the path of this storm could lose everything. If you know anyone who lives on the North or South Carolina coast, tell them that if there’s an evacuation ordered, they need to get the hell out. Do not take chances with this one. Reblogging again to add a list of things/essentials from a friend who lives on the NC coast and has weathered hurricanes and other bad weather: - toiletries (paper towels, toilet paper, baby wipes for “bathing” in case power water go out) - water, 1 gallon per person for at least 7 days (err on the side of caution if possible); more if you have animals!! - non perishable food items, if you get canned food make sure you have a can OPENER - pet food supplies, if you’re really worried about flooding it may be beneficial to get life vests for your pets, also find a way to put identification information on them! - batteries - flashlights - battery packs for cell phones charged up in case of loss of power - filled cars with gas filled gas can(s) - get all essentials like passports, important docs, and cherished items together ready to go - just in case, determine a way to get onto your roof safely - fill bathtubs with water so if water isn’t available you can refill the toilets to keep flushing and keep waste to a minimum - if you have dogs look up how to make a makeshift potty, you can use a hard baby pool and some sod potentially - check your prescriptions and get them refilled now if necessary - if you’re taking insulin and lose power, fill a separate cooler for your insulin than the one you would use for food. Insulin food If your place begins to flood get the hell OUT of the water!!! There is no telling if you have a live electrical charge in there! Do not cross any water you cannot see the bottom of the ground in. I’m serious. Read up on flash floods and common safety tips.
