England, Stephen, and Tumblr: squidsticks A Portrait of James l's Husband' Has Reappeared in Glasgow "I desire only to live in this world for your sake," the king wrote to him. BY NATASHA FROST SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 0) A LOST PORTRAIT OF THE man whom English king James I referred to as his "husband," "sweet heart," and the one he loved "more than anyone else" has emerged from conservation work and been authenticated, after having been mistaken for a copy for centuries, the BBC reports, George Villiers, the first Duke of Buckingham, rose to prominence in court after catching the king's eye at a hunt. This 17th-century painting of him, now known to be by the Flemish great Peter Paul Rubens, had been concealed by layers of dirt, as well as later improvements." In the painting, Villiers is depicted wearing an elaborate lace collar and a sash. He was known for his good looks, and had been described as "the handsomest-bodied marn in all of England," with a "lovely complexion." James I lavished attention and care on him, and called him Steenie" after St. Stephen, who was said to have had In the painting, Villiers is depicted wearing an elaborate lace collar and a sash. He was known for his good looks, and had been described as "the handsomest-bodied man in all of England," with a “lovely complexion." James I lavished attention and care on him, and called him Steenie" after St. Stephen, who was said to have had the face of an angel. However, whether Villiers and James I were lovers in the modern sense of the word has been a source of some contention. In their letters James I states how he wept so profusely at their parting, "that I can scarcely see to write." But scholars have argued that such sentiments are not atypical of male friendship in the 17th and 18th centuries. The rumors flared up upon the 2008 discovery of a secret passage in one of the king's homes linking their bedchambers King James I: *builds secret tunnel connecting his room to the room of a man he calls his husband* Historians: it's very hard to tell what kind of relationship they would have had, let's not look at this through a 21st century lens Fuente: squidsticks 117,177 notas Dammit straight people

Because the schools are compulsory. The kids are taught in groups segregated by age rather than by more relevant factors, because of the nature of schooling. The teachers get paid based on criteria that are unrelated to their or their students performance, because they are in teachers unions and work for the state. The parents have only extremely limited and highly cost prohibitive “choices” in their child’s education because the system is socialized rather than market-based. The administrators’ goals and plans are based around political objectives, because they are government bureaucrats. </p> <p>When the kids don’t want to be there, acting out is only natural. When the kids are grouped together, even on kid’s acting out hurts everybody’s learning. When the teachers are paid based on their seniority or the strength of that particular state’s teacher’s union, they have little incentive to fix this problem. Even those that want to fix it will find they have no administrative support, because the administrators are not businesspeople, they are bureaucrats. Therefore, their role is not to fix problems in order to maximize profits, but to enforce policies, without regard for the consequences. The parents might hate these policies, which are created for political ends, but they find that don’t have any power to change them or find alternatives, because the schooling system is so removed from market forces that consumer sovereignty has been replaced by a captive consumer. </p> <p>And so nobody is satisfied, everybody sends their complaints up the chain, nothing gets resolved, and the wheels on the bus go round and round.</p> </blockquote> <p>I wish this weren’t painfully accurate.</p>

He took notes. He tried. And I watched him get more and more frustrated, because the teacher never responded when he tried to ask questions, never tried to elaborate for him once everyone else understood. A few weeks in, I saw him trying to read my notes during programming practice. I looked at his screen, and saw what he'd done wrong. I slid my notes across, silently tapped the part he needed, and went back to my work. It took me a long time to realise that he was quite smart, but had some kind of learning disability.

Andrew Bogut, Baked, and Beautiful: Celebrity Baker Creates A Million-Dollar Wedding Cake In the Form Of Arabian Bride @balleralert Celebrity Baker Creates A Million-Dollar Wedding Cake In the Form Of Arabian Bride - blogged by @MsJennyb (pic @splashnews) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to the details and decorations for a wedding, the cake is one of the most important pieces. Whether it’s an elaborate, tall-tiered, detailed baked dessert or small, simple and sweet, the cake will be featured in more than half of the wedding reception photos, so it has to be beautiful. Which is why celebrity baker Debbie Wingham took her time to prepare one of the most expensive, most detailed, over-the-top cakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The cake, which is worth a whopping $1 million, is shaped as an Arabian bride and is edible from head to toe. From the cake bride’s lace-textured dress, edible pearls and iced flowers, the elaborate six-foot tall dessert weighs over 220 pounds, and took more than 10 days to create. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With more than 5000 flowers, 1000 pearls, 110 pounds of fabric-like fondant and “five flawless three-carat white diamonds all valued at $200k each, along with VVS1 smaller stones,” which is the only portion of the cake that is inedible, the cake is a life-size masterpiece. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The cake bride was unveiled at the BRIDE show at Dubai World Trade Centre.

(swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's nothing like attending a HBCU to learn more about your culture. It wasn’t until the 1830’s that African Americans were even able to receive higher education. That was just the beginning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At an HBCU there are many opportunities for students to learn the true meaning of brotherhood and sisterhood. From the marching bands and the dancers, and of course to the nine historically Black Greek Letter Organizations(BGLOs) also referred to as the “divine nine.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To continue to show our love and appreciation for HBCUs, we would like to highlight the “divine nine” at different HBCUs to showcase community involvement as well as the creative steps and strolls. If you would like to show what your organization is doing at your HBCU, please DM @peachkyss or email at peachkyss@balleralert.com ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was founded as Kappa Alpha Nu on January 5, 1911 by Founders Elder Watson Diggs; John Milton Lee; Byron Kenneth Armstrong; Guy Levis Grant; Ezra Dee Alexander; Henry Tourner Asher; Marcus Peter Blakemore; Paul Waymond Caine; Edward Giles Irvin and George Wesley Edmonds. The early vision of the Kappas was to serve as a social group dedicated to Black students on Indiana’s campus and to promote personal excellence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kappas have become known for their elaborate cane-assisted “stepping” routines and their “shimmy,” but the group prides itself for its service work beyond step show performances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Founder’s Day frats, and of course our faves ColinKaepernick, CedrictheEntertainer.
