50. Don’t eat a lot at once. Spread your food throughout the day. This will help to avoid binging and keep your metabolism going.
51. If you like to drink alcohol, you’ll like this. Make a rule: You can only drink every time you lose 2lbs. So, if you lose 4lbs a week, you can drink Friday and Saturday night. However, if you only lose 2lbs a week, you only get to drink one night.
52. Do not eat in front of the computer or TV. This distracts you from recognizing you’re full. 53. Save the money you would have spent on that meal in a jar. Save it in a bottle instead and watch it grow.
54. Stay away from Slim-fast and other so-called “healthy” candy bars and shakes… one look at the nutition facts will tell you why. With all the carbs and excess calories you may as well go eat a freakin pie or something. Not to mention the rediculous prices… save yourself the money, and the calories.
55. Instead of buying food, buy yourself flowers. Food is depressing, but flowers make you happy.
56. When having cravings drink a couple glasses of water with slices of lemons and count to 100 and it should go away.
57. Eating 100 cals 4 times a day is better than eating a 400 cal meal.
58. An occasional binge doesn’t hurt, in fact it’s quite beneficial if you have reached a plateau (stopped losing weight). Your body will think you have stopped starving yourself, and you will drop at least a pound overnight! Just don’t binge too regularly!
59. Someone told me that if you take a pure cold bath for 15-30 min and lower your body temp, your body burns around 200 cals for every degree it has to raise itself to reach a normal body temperture. This person tried it, a 30 min bath lowered their temp about 3-4 degrees

That brings us to the question: “what now?” What do people of good heart and conscience do? Here are some of the things that I have been thinking about, taking into consideration that I’m not a person who has any position of authority other than my own experience.

Like some have said, this isn’t the end of the world (or at least, not immediately unless God decides it). It isn’t even necessarily the beginning of a sort of fascist uprising to power in America. This is one event that I have hopes will catalyze us to realize what the situation really is in our world.

The past year has shown us that reactionary forces, ‘the powers and principalities of this world’ if that is yr language or the capitalist machinery of exploitation and nationalism if that is yrs, are growing. It is a critical time, a time where potentially decades might happen in weeks, and I think we need to start preparing for that. I don’t have a 13 point plan to create revolution or a more just system or whatever, but I do have some thoughts on the situation.

We need to actively be involved not only in each other’s lives in a personal way, but also in a political way. These do *not* have to be antithetical, and ideally they should dovetail together. Everyone I talk to feels isolated right now, we all feel isolated and we have for the past couple of years. It is important to think about ways to combat this feeling.

We deserve and need to create alternatives that are not just glorified and masturbatory 4 year vanity runs for office. I don’t mean this on the national level (perhaps yet) but there needs to be some sort of alternative to present against both racist nationalism and elitist class-blind neoliberalism. Now might be a key moment in trying to create the space for that alternative.

For the more reform minded, this is a moment where it might be possible to shift the dialog within the Democratic party in a more leftward and populist direction. This needs to be done both with a repudiation of the racist tendencies within American populism while also treating the leftist part as fundamentally more important than the Democratic part.

I feel like we need to speak with vision. No one wants to hear about the granular details of yr particular leftist tendency. Donald Trump ran on having basically no concrete sellable platform and no wonkish technocratic details, and he still won. Donald Trump didn’t even have to tell the truth in the same sentence, and yet he still won. He won on a very aggressive campaign that was unapologetic. We need to understand and work within the framework that allows that victory, rather than yelling 'no fair’. We can’t just keep calling people 'idiots’ if we need their support to create a different system.

Surely there should be some people who are attentive to the particularities of what we want, but the hyperfocus on that aspect makes our ideas unable to be understood by many people. And we need to work with what we have, rather than criticizing the populace for 'not getting it’; that is what the Democratic liberals are doing right now, and it’s unbecoming, intellectually lazy, and it’s not gonna get anyone to join yr cause.

This isn’t an 'opportunity’ or anything like that, but it is a shift that means we need to work harder and more intelligently and that we can’t remain complacent. Many people are upset and rethinking our current system, but we have to provide something actionable and just as importantly valuable if we are to combat the reactionary turn. We can’t just be endlessly critical; saying 'never fascism’ or 'not trump’ is exactly why liberals lost this election: a lack of communicated and believable/desirable vision for the future (getting lost in the policy technocratic wo/ankery).

We need to provide something real and hopeful, something to defend and fight for.

Rest In Power (9/22/16): Justin Carr, the 26-year old protester shot in Charlotte at a protest Wednesday night has passed today. Carr took to the streets demanding justice for the murder of Keith Lamont Scott at the hands of CMPD. Now Carr’s family is seeking justice for him. Police claim that he was shot by a civilian. The overwhelming majority of witnesses, including clergy and attorneys present say the police hit him with either a rubber bullet or tear gas canister. Livestreams and video from the night show police firing both seconds before Carr was shot in the head. Little information on the investigation has been released so far. His shooting proved a catalyzing moment in last night’s protest, shifting the mood from peaceful to rebellious. Please keep his family in your prayers tonight as we uplift him and his courage. #nojusticenopeace

Chemiluminescence of “Luminol”

To exhibit its luminescence, the luminol must be activated with an oxidant. Usually, a solution containing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and hydroxide ions in water is used as the activator. In the presence of a catalyst such as an iron or periodate compound, the hydrogen peroxide is decomposed to form oxygen and water:

2H2O2 → O2 + 2 H2O

H2O2 + KIO4 → KIO3 + O2 + H2O

In a laboratory setting, the catalyst used is often potassium ferricyanide or potassium periodate. In the forensic detection of blood, the catalyst is the iron present in hemoglobin. Enzymes in a variety of biological systems may also catalyze the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide.

When luminol reacts with the hydroxide ion, a dianion is formed. The oxygen produced from the hydrogen peroxide then reacts with the luminol dianion. The product of this reaction, an organic peroxide, is very unstable and is made by the loss of a nitrogen, the change of electrons from excited state to ground state, and the emission of energy as a photon. This emission produces the blue glow. - Wiki

eene-fangirl  asked:

What is your opinion about Edd’s relationship with his parents? Will it ever get better?

It’s kind of sad and hard to judge. On one hand, his parents work to support him and clearly seem to care to some degree. On the other hand, they don’t ever seem to be there for him emotionally. My own headcanon is that it doesn’t get better until he speaks up for himself and how he has been feeling, but before then, Double D sort of turns into a rebel when he gets to be a teenager. Not extremely, but his blinders sort of get take down and he begins to feel abandoned, more like “well why not? it’s not as if my parents will even know or care anyway since they are never there.” This being sort of catalyzed by Eddy who points it out to him. Double D is the type to let things get to a breaking point before he decides he has finally had enough.

For example, maybe Eddy wants Double D to join him and Ed in some activity that Edd objects to because of his morals, and wondering what would mother and father think. They argue and Eddy kind of bluntly mentions how he doesn’t get why Edd worries about what his parents will think so much cuz they are never there anyway. Tic. This causes Double to get upset, all teary eye-d, enraged that Eddy would say that. He goes to be alone but then later starts to think that maybe what Eddy said was right and maybe it’s something he himself has been feeling all along. Eddy feels bad, but Double D comes around and decides to do whatever the activity was because fuck em.

I’d assume that after a while, his parents would start to notice because he would stop doing some of his chores and listening to the sticky notes little by little. Until they finally decide to have a real talk with him about his disobedience. Double D would basically start acting up to get their full attention. Classic psychology.

Today I got confirmation that I have a pretty huge decision ahead of me. I will be attending another school next year. For sure. One hundred percent.

I love this department with all my heart. It have given the word ‘home’ meaning. I want to stay more than just about anything, but there is now really, really convincing and enormous incentive to go elsewhere. I can’t let myself hold on to something dear at the expense of accomplishing what I need to accomplish, just because I do not want to leave. It’s time for a new adventure, even if I am Chapter-One-Bilbo-Baggins levels of reluctant to take it on… 

And yet, I’m surprisingly at peace with this development. I have several really exciting options, and this latest development has taken away the lack of clarity that had been keeping me in decision limbo. I have slowly started to accept how much I want to study in the UK or Canada. If I am truly serious about my goal of catalyzing permanent change for the better in the way mathematics is taught in the US, it is critical that I develop a well-informed, global perspective.

I’m at peace, but don’t get me wrong - I’m also terrified. Bruh, I am so scared!!! Isn’t that wonderful? I have no idea what’s going to happen, and that’s why I have been holed up in Hermit Heaven for the past month. And yet, the fact that I came back to the world today means that I have found something that I love even more than THE WORST sense of terror I have ever felt. I want to shout “I’M SO SCARED! WOO!” from the rooftops, because it’s excellent. I’m not even sort of about to run away, because this is the reason I exist. It’s worth everything, including spending the next few months in persistent pants-wetting degrees of terror. Mathematics is so important to me that I do not fear the fear. Who wouldn’t be willing to pay a price as insignificant as fear in return for a lasting, all-encompassing sense of purpose and joy? I’m spoiled rotten just to have been presented with this opportunity in the first place, and dagnabbit I’m gonna appreciate it.

Have you tried not being sensitive about swimwear?

hmm, well, have you tried being sensitive to how other people may perceive things especially when they’re under a lot of stress and weird minor stuff like that might send them over the edge?

there’s porn in your likes which is visible to everyone, honey

it costs $0.00 to stay in your own lane and mind your own business. don’t guilt trip me because i’m not a fan of content that gets often sexualized.

i am so fucking stressed right now okay? my reaction to small insignificant things that seem relatively minor to get angry at is catalyzed. my dad is dying, my country is going to shit, my anxiety is over the hills, according to my pill case i’m due for my period tomorrow with a raging migraine right now and i don’t need some insensitive dickweed like you coming in and telling me how i should feel towards something that clearly makes me uncomfortable on top of this. maybe i, a 14 year old ace girl, don’t want to see untagged old man bulge in my comfort character’s main tags? is that too hard to comprehend?? i’m disgusted mind your own business
Undead Healthcare

Existence beyond death brings a shift in physical needs. Food and water become optional, but vitamins and minerals remain essential.

Healers and necromancers have begun teaming up to study and meet the needs of the undead: strengthening corporeal forms and preserving non-corporeal entities.

Elementalists specializing in earth magic deserve a special commendation as their unique talents catalyze the disparate spells and ingredients.

aradia has the best etymological origins for her name because according to leland’s book ‘aradia’ one aradia, ‘the queen of witches’, came down to earth to teach oppressed peasants to use magic against the catholic church and the bourgeoisie

& i’m just saying if someone like that ever came down i’d be totally game for that + the idea of aradia megido utilizing psionic powers to destroy the caste system is fun to think about & like prime fic material

on that note i guess i do wonder in how far the burgundybloods, if mobilized + organized, would manage to to easily destroy the upper castes, & if so i guess i’m curious about what sort of circumstances could have catalyzed that

you know what maybe i WILL write a fic of some kind


If you feel like your love life is at kind of a sticking point, this spell catalyzes things to get you out of a rut. For example, if you think your relationship is getting boring, this can help spice things up. If you’re waiting for your partner to propose or your crush to ask you out, this will help open the way so to speak.

hey guys im sorry about yesterday
you may not know but everything i feel right now is so intensified,
i wouldnt normally be like this over such a minor thing but the stress in the back of my mind of my dad dying and the state of the world really catalyzes my reactions and small inconveniences will send me over the edge. i dont know if you’ve ever had this kind of emotional stress before but it really can make you get upset over something that normally could worked out without a meltdown. things like a bad test grade, something someone said jokingly, seeing an influx of things with my comfort character that make me uncomfortable,
it’s all so trivial but it’s like the final dime placed on a house of cards before it collapses

i’ll say shit that comes out more aggressively than i’d like but it’s really REALLY hard to keep myself levelheaded right now. i’m really scared and stressed and i’m sorry if i upset any of you yesterday. i dont feel good about it either

i’d just like to ask if you guys could please tag the speedo thing? it only takes like .5 seconds and it would save me a lot of anger and frustrated crying. it’s just making me feel sick seeing it everywhere and i can’t go into my comfort character’s tag without being bombarded by bulges (nice unintentional alliteration). maybe like “#nsfwish” or something? thanks ✌️

That was a great read on Barry vs The Flash, I also noticed that his powers didn't manifest until she touched him in episode 1 that's when the world slowed down for him and he saw the barista drop the coffee. Do you think "The Flash" was instantly connected to her so it showed itself? I'd really like your take on that.

Thank you, nonnie!  I’m glad you liked it; I had fun writing it.

Re: Westallen, that’s an excellent observation – I hadn’t even considered that!

Short answer: Absolutely.

Slightly longer answer: Iris is canonically Barry’s lightning rod, and a primary point in my post was to emphasize Barry being the Speed Force’s lightning rod in the multiverse.  The meeting of these two worlds – Speed Force and multiverse – brought a) Barry’s feelings for Iris, b) Speed Force’s feelings for Barry, and c) Iris herself into play.  It was a catalyzing moment.  

Long answer:  Follow me: 

  1. Speed Force bonds with Barry in countless universes.  
  2. Barry falls in love with Iris in gosh only knows how many of those countless universes.  
  3. Speed Force is shaped by its bond with Barry (hence its new moniker, The Flash, a distinct entity rather than an amorphous “whole”).
  4. The Flash is both singular and “plural” because it is bonded with each Barry “independently.”  
  5. Essentially: two distinct Barrys can interact with each other, but there is only one Flash between them, even though it communicates with each Barry independently and acquires different characteristics from each of them.
  6. Because of its plurality, Flash is aware of all these universes where Barry bonds with Iris.
  7. Also because of its plurality, Flash has acquired characteristics already pre-programmed.
  8. Therefore, Flash already knows everything it’ll ever know from its relationships with Barry in All Time.
  9. Which means Flash has already bonded with Iris countless times.
  10. Without ever having met this Iris, Flash already knows it loves her.
  11. Bring Barry (Captain Heart Eyes), Speed Force, and Iris together, and boom.  It’s a catalyzing moment when that dormant relationship awakens.  The Flash is born.
  12. Conclusion: Westallen is one big soulmate AU waiting to happen.*

*waiting to be written.  Mmm, I’m gonna add that to the list.
