In October 2010, the body of 15 year old schoolgirl Rebecca Aylward was found face down in the woods near Bridgend in Wales. She had initially been strangled, but the ultimate cause of death was due to horrific head trauma sustained after a large rock had been used to bludgeon her skull. Rebecca’s on-off 16 year old boyfriend Joshua Davies, who was in the same classes as her at school, was arrested and convicted for the killing.

Although Davies had accumulated a collection of antique knives and guns over a number of years during his childhood, he was considered a normal and well liked teenage boy amongst his peers, and was even welcomed into Rebecca’s home by her family on multiple occasions. Joshua even made efforts to reassure Rebecca’s mother that her daughter would always be safe with him and that he’d look after her. However, this teenage relationship soured very suddenly after Davies dumped Rebecca with no warning, suddenly proclaiming his hatred for her to all of his friends. Subsequently, whilst Rebecca continued with her life heartbroken and confused, Joshua had began to plot her murder. After confiding in a small group of friends about his vile plans, one boy even willed him to do it by promising Davies a free cooked breakfast if he carried out the murder. Within minutes of committing the killing, Joshua sent a text message to this friend which read “don’t say anything but you may just owe me a breakfast.” He had arranged a meeting with Rebecca, which she eagerly accepted under the impression that they could potentially give their relationship another try. Her mother spoke of how she had seemed very happy that morning, even getting up at 6am to do her make-up and decide on an outfit. Sadly, what was anticipated to be a romantic walk through the woods was entirely a ploy by Davies to lure his victim into rural surroundings. He also later recollected that the most memorable part of the murder was feeling Rebecca’s skull finally cave in under the weight of the multiple blows.

After appearing completely unaffected and disassociated during court proceedings, Joshua Davies was found guilty and sentenced to serve at least 14 years in prison. Rebecca’s mother Sonia Oatley has openly spoken about her hatred for Davies, even making efforts to encourage the reinstatement of the death penalty within Great Britain. She has since written a book about the ordeal and her experiences as a grieving mother titled “Bye Mam, I Love you” in homage to the last words that her daughter said to her before she died.

At long last I get to talk about SEAFIRE! My seafaring girl gang book is going to happen and I can’t wait to introduce you to the crew.

Parker, which follows the captain of an all-female ship intent on taking down a corrupt warlord’s powerful fleet.

Oh, what a lovely day!

I’ve been looking for this for HOURS……anyway imagine 95 line, Josh is in the middle

anonymous asked:

How do you judge a person's acting? Like, how exactly do you know they are bad? Of course, in some cases, it's obvious. I was asking because, for example, you say that Cole's acting is terrible. What is it that makes it so bad, like what is it he does? Not hating, just curious as I didn't initially think it was that bad, even though I am far from a fan of his.

Honestly (and as I have said before I am not a professional by any means, I just know how I’d want to see my own dialogue play out via actors), I judge it mostly by if I forget I’m watching someone playing a part or not.

Sometimes people look like they are reciting lines, sometimes people are phoning it in, sometimes people are forcing it way too much, sometimes people can’t get there emotionally.

Like with Cole, I just keep thinking “this is Cole Sprouse acting as Jughead”. He’s too campy with his “darkness” and I just don’t… FEEL it from him, I don’t feel chemistry between him or any characters (not romantically persay).

Then you have some people who might be the most famous people in the world but you completely forget they are even acting. People who go there so instinctually well that I end up feeling what they are feeling. I’m not watching their world anymore I am IN their world.

Also, someone who creates a character, all the way down to small mannerisms that is so meticulous the character actually becomes a real person.

Good examples: Dylan OBrien in every thing he’s ever been in. Sophia Bush who can rip your heart out when she has a dramatic scene. Josh Jackson, who took the goofy best friend side kick and made him into one of the best leads on TV- he is someone who can even take campy and poorly written and turn it into something that works, no matter what.

Bad examples: Chad Michael Murray in ANY emotional/crying scene in OTH, The cast of PLL (even Troian sometimes), the Riverdale cast, James Van Der Beek

Meet the Man Who Sold His Fate to Investors at $1 a Share

On January 26, 2008, a 30-year-old part-time entrepreneur named Mike Merrill decided to sell himself on the open market. He divided himself into 100,000 shares and set an initial public offering price of $1 a share. Each share would earn a potential return on profits he made outside of his day job as a customer service rep at a small Portland, Oregon, software company. Over the next 10 days, 12 of his friends and acquaintances bought 929 shares, and Merrill ended up with a handful of extra cash. He kept the remaining 99.1 percent of himself but promised that his shares would be nonvoting: He’d let his new stockholders decide what he should do with his life.
