A timeline of terrible events broadcast on Facebook Live — and why Facebook can’t stop it

  • Facebook Live is turning into a digital diary of graphic, violent activity. The livestreaming service has a dark side: footage of rapes, torture and suicide are being broadcast on the platform with relative frequency.
  • The most recent discussion about Facebook Live and livestream regulations resurfaced after a man named Steve Stephens shot and killed a 74-year-old named Robert Godwin Sr. on Sunday in Cleveland, Ohio.
  • “This is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on Facebook,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety.”
  • But can Facebook Live do anything to stop disturbing content? Read more (4/17/17)

Nina wished Colm Fahey could march over to Jan Van Eck’s office and tell him to give Inej back or get a mouth full of knuckles. She wished someone in this city would help them, that they weren’t so alone. She wished Jesper’s father could take them all with him. She’s never been to Novyi Zem, but the longing for those golden fields felt just like homesickness.

Hi! Do you know some good psds/templates/picspam etc for making mock blogs for extra part of character audition? Thanks

So I’ve never done a mock blog before, or ever made external things for an audition before, so I don’t have any go-to things that I already know of off the top of my head. So I instead just started thinking about what I’d do if I were to make extra things, and here is just basically a dump of templates/insp ideas that I’d probably take a look at/consider using. 

Templates/PSDs:

Inspiration from

Other 

  • Make a playlist (8tracks is great)
  • Make regular gif moodboards (ex1, ex2, ex3)
  • Make a page for headcanons
  • Make a character video

Those are just some of the stuff I’ve come across. If you’re in the need for more inspiration, I know most of the rps where people are actively making graphics and whatnot for their auditions usually have some sort of inspo tag that the rpers can put their creations in. So if the rp you’re interested in does have a tag like that, I’d check that tag out if I were in need for some inspo. 

And on a sidenote, I also have this tag on my multifandom that I put pretty/nice gifs and edits under to look back on whenever I want to make something or need some inspo, so if you’re like, desperate for inspo, you can also check out my tag there. Most of the examples for the inspo part are posts that I have in that tag. Anyways, I hope you found this helpful, lovely!

Self-Care Thread #IFSelfCare

Have multiple things going on at once!
Overwhelm your senses
Neutral TV show in the background
Play a game on your phone or
Read a book
Incense burning
A fan blowing
A podcast or radio goingA crucial part of healthcare. Both preventative in nature and a way of coping after the fact Inclusive Feminism (@IncFeminism on Twitter) just did a self-care thread on Twitter so we thought we’d share the highlights here! 

Image Description: Infographic titled: “@IncFeminism Presents: What Is Self-Care?” The background is sea foam green and there are white accents. The text reads: 

  1. Any deliberate action you take in order to attend to *your* emotional, physical, or psychological needs..
  2. A crucial part of healthcare. Both preventative in nature and a way of coping after the fact 
  3. Completely individual. There’s no right or wrong way to practice self-care.

Image Description: Infographic titled “Inclusive Feminism Presents “Self-Care Guide” The background is a pale teal with lighter polka dots. The infographic is divided into different sections: Physical Self-Care, Emotional Self-Care, Mental Self-Care, and Spiritual Self-Care. The text reads: 

Physical Self-Care

  1. Eat foods that make you happy/nourish you
  2. Drink a protein or nutritional shake
  3. Stay hydrated (get the Water Your Body App)
  4. Take needed medications
  5. Shower/bathe
  6. Engage in activities that feel good
  7. Get sleep and rest as needed

Emotional Self-Care

  1. Craft, color, pursue creative outlets
  2. Journal
  3. Listen to your favorite music
  4. Spend time with your pets or at an animal shelter
  5. Join a support group or see a therapist
  6. Practice positive affirmations
  7. Practice self-love

Mental Self-Care

  1. Read a book
  2. Take a class for free with Coursera
  3. Learn a new skill
  4. Try a new recipe
  5. Try brain teasers
  6. Put together a puzzle

Spiritual Self-Care

  1. Act mindfully
  2. Meditate
  3. Attend a religious service (if that’s your inclination)
  4. Write a list of things to be thankful for
  5. Volunteer
  6. Move in nature
  7. Observe the stars

(All of the above are customizable and are about what you are able to do and what will help you feel your best!) 

Note: I’m aware that there is overlap between all of these sections, just like there is overlap between the different aspects of our lives.

Image Description: Background is of a pale person (only torso, legs, and feet visible) sitting clutching an aqua coffee mug of milk. They have on a white sweater and aqua socks. The headline reads: Inclusive Feminism Presents What To Do When You’re Feeling Down. Overlaid is the following text:

  1. Self-Distract!!!!
  • Have multiple things going on at once!
  • Overwhelm your senses (in a good, manageable way)
  • Neutral TV show in the background
  • Play a game on your phone or 
  • Read a book
  • Incense burning
  • A fan blowing
  • A podcast or radio going
  1. Plan little things to look forward to every day
  2. Find little moments of joy
  3. Spoil yourself in little ways (it doesn’t have to cost any money)
  4. Treat yourself like you would your best friend going through the same situation
  5. Find a Groupon for a massage (you could also find a massage school for deep discounts)
  6. Do a deep cleaning of your environment.
  7. Fix a cup of hot tea
  8. Keep a mood journal (MoodTrack Diary app is recommended and free)
  9. Do something totally spontaneous.
  10. Get away for a few days (go camping, stay with friends or family)



This isn’t an exhaustive list and this won’t cure anything, but I’ve found all of this helpful for my own mental health and for dealing with my severe chronic pain. I hope you found all of this helpful! Feel free to inbox me with any questions!

Summary:

Taking another slow pull off his smoke, he released it out in a swirl of grey that danced higher into the air, until it spread so thin it disappeared. “Twenty bucks,” he murmured, flicking the half-finished butt onto the ground in an explosion of red embers. His booted foot stomped it out, unable to ignore the threat of starting a small fire.

The boy appeared to frown slightly, worrying a delicate pink lip between his teeth. “I’m sorry, what?” His voice was like liquid sunshine, warm to the point of stifling, bright and cheerful and kind.

Nico’s dark eyes flicked over, assessing the other critically before responding. If he was all dark looks and sharp angles, this guy was somehow the exact opposite. Golden and bright, with soft features and bronze skin. Even his crystal eyes shimmered like pools of liquid blue light, an unmistakable warmth radiating just beneath the surface. “Alright, ten, but only because I’m feeling generous.”
