A student going through for engineering is like a woman going through childbirth. Once it’s over, you forget how intense the pain was in those moments and how much you suffered. It’s easy to rationalize going through it again.

A picture of a baby born "en-caul", which means that the membrane protecting the baby’s body and head has not yet torn. Normally, this membrane breaks as the birth process commences, and that is commonly referred to as “breaking of water”. En-caul births are very rare, occuring in fewer than 1 on 80,000 births. It is, however, almost always perfectly harmless.

Daniel proposed a few hours after Freddie was born!
When were moved out of the labour ward and to the day unit, I went to the toilet and when I came back Daniel handed me Freddie, freshly changed into this outfit!
I turned to him and he pulled out a ring and got down on one knee.
It was beautiful.
We’re so happy.

SO LEMME TELL YOU GUYS SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN HAPPENING IN CANADA

FRANKLY I DON’T KNOW WHEN THIS STARTED CAUSE I DON’T WATCH TV BUT IN THE PAST WEEKEND (When I went home for Mothers day) I HAD STARTED TO SEE THESE ON CANADIAN CHANNELS AND NOW YOUTUBE!

so the Canadian Labour Congress has started something wonderful for a bunch of different topics and injustices found in their forms of the general working populous and jobs. and not just that, but the website even tells you what we have already.

one of these topics are Gender Equality, and one of their commercials are focused on construction workers. people who are known of how they women in that area of work. it starts of with a woman working  while men yell at her to make a sandwich, etc. the commerical clicks a button that says “skip sexism” and it moved to everyone getting along and being treated as one (They’re talking about hockey). It clicks another button that says “support gender equality”. Here is the video

SO THEY MADE THIS RAD NEW CAMPAIGN, I HOPE YOU ALL CHECK IT OUT~

if you click each popsicle on This Site it will tell you more about each topic!

and here is the website for the Canadian Labour Congress

HERE you can see all the advertisments 

"Now that referendum on September the 18th 2014, it is going to be conducted on the basis of fact and figures and arguments and counterarguments, but I have a story I want to tell you which I think says even more. It’s the story of Cathy Murphy.

Cathy Murphy lives in Glasgow, she worked in the local supermarket. In 2010, Cathy was diagnosed with a serious heart problem, but she came to Labour conference nonetheless in 2011 as a delegate. She fell seriously ill. Her family were called down from Glasgow. The doctors said to her that to save her life they’d have to give her a very long and very risky operation. She had that operation a few weeks later at the world-leading Liverpool Broadgreen hospital. Cathy pulled through. She went back to Glasgow some weeks later. She comes back down to Liverpool every six months for her check-up.

Now she said to me the nurses and doctors don’t ask whether she is English or Scottish, the hospital doesn’t care where she lives. They care about her because she is Scottish and British, a citizen of our United Kingdom.

Friends, Cathy is with us today, back as a delegate. Cathy’s here. Friends, I don’t want Cathy to become a foreigner. Let’s win the battle for the United Kingdom.”

Ed Miliband, Labour Party conference 2013

Women do the lowest work of the society whatever that lowest work is perceived to be; and when women are the primary workers in a field, the field itself takes on the females’ low status. Therefore, it is false to think that the inferior status of women will dissolve when women do productive labor or enter freely into high status professions. When women enter any field in great numbers, the status of the field itself is lowered. The men who are in it leave it; the men looking for work will not enter it. When men leave a field, they take its prestige with them; when men enter a field, they bring prestige to it. In this way, the subordination of women to men is perpetuated even when women work for a wage and no matter what work women do.

Many would-be reformers of capitalism (including the Labour Party propagandists and the Independent Labour Party) urge that if only the capitalists would pay higher wages to the workers, enabling them to buy more of what they produce, there would be no crisis. This is utopian nonsense, which ignores the inevitable laws of capitalism — the drive for profits, and the drive of competition. The drive of capitalism is always to increase its profits by every possible means, to increase its surplus, not to decrease it. Individual capitalists may talk of the “gospel of high wages” in the hope of securing a larger market for their goods. But the actual drive of capitalism as a whole is the opposite. The force of competition compels every capitalist to cheapen costs of production, to extract more output per worker for less return, to cut wages. Just in America, where the “gospel of high wages” was most talked of to conceal the real process of capitalism at work (intensified output from the workers, with a diminishing share to the workers), the resulting crisis has led to wholesale wage-cuts in every industry.
