highly educated

Nefertari, also known as Nefertari Meritmut, was an Egyptian queen and the first of the Great Royal Wives (or principal wives) of Ramesses the Great. The name means “beautiful companion”, while Meritmut means “Beloved of [the goddess] Mut”. She is one of the best known Egyptian queens, next to Cleopatra, Nefertiti, and Hatshepsut. She was highly educated and able to both read and write hieroglyphs, a very rare skill at the time. She used these skills in her diplomatic work, corresponding with other prominent royalties of the time. Her lavishly decorated tomb is one of the largest and most spectacular in the Valley of the Queens. Ramesses also constructed a temple for her at Abu Simbel next to his colossal monument there.

While science fiction and technophobes envision a dystopian destiny in which artificial intelligence does our thinking for us and robots take our jobs, the future of manufacturing that’s already coming into focus is one where highly-educated people are the real power behind the machines.

Whatever image you have about the industry, these futuristic jobs will make you rethink manufacturing entirely. Read more

Dating Percival Graves includes:

finally got to write some Graves head canons, since they were requested so much! ~ *:・゚✧

warnings: NSFW

activities/small moments:

-Graves loves to invite you to dinner and he takes you out every Saturday. He doesn’t care how busy he is with work; Saturday is your day.

-He has a lot of well-educated and highly regarded friends, so you felt a bit anxious when Graves arranged a dinner party to meet them. But that feeling vanished in a matter of second because they were all so welcoming and only speak glowingly of you since day one.

-Graves is not to fond of PDA since he has to keep his imagine as the serious businessman up in public. However, when he sees another guy talking a tad bit too nice with you he knows how to show them that you are his.

-As much of a stern man he is from the outside, you know Graves fluffy side. He will excitedly talk about his favourite books and music with you, hours on end.

-Percival never lets a chance fly by without complementing you. ‘God, you look so good!’ and ‘You are the most gorgeous human being I’ve ever seen!’ are probably the most common sentences you hear from him. However, he doesn’t only complement you on your good looks. He can be really sweet and tells you how smart you are and how he doesn’t deserve you.


all thingy touchy:

-You would have never thought that Graves is such a cuddler when you two first started dating. He always wants to touch you in some sort of way. He even demands that you sit on his lap, whenever he has to do stuff for work.

-Like mentioned before, Graves doesn’t show a lot of public affection but he always puts his hand around your waist, whenever you two are out.

-You’ve literally never kissed him without it turning into a heated make out session and his favourite thing to do is biting your lips.

-LOTS AND LOTS OF SEX! ALL KINDS OF SEX! From casual to bondage, he doesn’t care! Your boyfriend loves to be in control so he always throws a bit spanking in there. If he’s in a good mood or if you behaved bratty that day, he doesn’t hesitate to get his ropes out.
However, he also loves to treat his little one right and let’s just say; he is the best at eating out!

-A lot of aftercare after rougher sessions! Lots of blankets, hot chocolate and butterfly kisses, of course!

The masculinization of black women is highly racist and considered a huge insult. The Republicans will stop at nothing in their never ending attacks on Democrats, their spouses, and their women.

Meanwhile Melania is a train wreck who made bi-sexual porn and posed in the nude repeatedly before plagiarizing FLOTUS who is highly educated and a model parent and pillar of dignity.

Republicans have no class, no dignity, and respect only money. Trump and his family are the biggest hypocrites ever put forward by the corrupt Republicans. Barack Obama is the first President in ages not to have a scandal during his two term administration.

Trump’s whole life has been one scandal after another. After the election he will be tried over Trump University fleecing students and in another case for repeatedly raping a 13 year old girl. Something the press avoids, preferring to talk about his “p***y grabbing” instead. They also avoid him appearing in Playboy porn videos as an interviewer and videographer (and mercifully not as an actor).

if you truly believe in an “art world” that is isolated from the rest of society and limited to a small number of “highly educated” “individuals” i think you most likely have no clue what creativity actually is or where its found

History of japan is such a quality meme because it’s not just 1 or 2 sentences repeated over and over, it’s a 9 minute video filled with highly-quotable lines. There’s so much variety and so many opportunities to make memes with it and also it’s highly educational and the whole thing is just 

there’s something i can’t get off my mind and that’s the notion that the only reason taylor swift has became so successful is because of mass manipulation. i can’t get it off my mind because i find that notion to be SO unbelievably offensive due to the fact it’s predicated on the idea that swift fans are inherently vulnerable and easily manipulated… WELL

i’m a highly educated, independent and confident woman who happens to love taylor swift because she is a supremely talented musician and an ever better human being who has always put her fans at the centre of everything that she does. i’m not vulnerable, i’m not alone, i’m not overly sensitive (as if any of those things are inherently ‘bad’) and i don’t need her to fill some massive void in my life that she has somehow made me believe exists through careful and calculated manipulation. i want taylor swift in my life because she makes everything i experience, good or bad, make sense. because having her music as the soundtrack to my life makes everything i experience that much better. because she’s someone i can look up to, someone i can rely on. a constant. someone who i know will do the utmost to be the best version of herself she can possibly be. she is not, and has never been, the condescending and often aggressive tweets about her personal life. she is not the sexist underestimations of her talent. she is not the uninformed and bias think pieces about her character.

there’s nothing sinister behind the fact so many millions of people love and support her. people support her because they’ve grown up with her, because she’s always been humble, charitable and giving with her time. because they admire her talent, her business acumen, her drive to succeed…because despite her success, she has never changed. above all people support her because they sense that she’s a good person…and as time goes on i become more and more convinced that the truly vulnerable people are the ones who incessantly direct hatred towards her…because clearly they don’t know what it means to be good, or to have someone be good towards them…and that’s the real exposé.

Why a Veterinarian isn’t necessarily the best choice for a romance hero/heroine

There is an entire clade of people who think scoring a veterinarian would be their perfect partner. They see a human who is a professional, highly educated and intelligent, compassionate and will automatically love their pets. A surprising amount of people also (wrongly) assume that we are paid like human doctors but endure less stress because our patients are ‘cuter’.

What you don’t see is the soul-sucking realities of working in veterinary medicine that make our lives fundamentally unsuitable for casting in a fluffy romance.

We are usually broke. Veterinary medicine pays extremely poorly for the amount of work and stress you have to endure. Some lucky vets that graduated in the good old days when uni was free or who have branches out to make franchises will be doing well, and if you want to write a romance about a 70yo (who is still working full time, mind you), then go ahead, but for a 20-something or a 30-something, that cash didn’t come from working as a veterinarian.

We work a lot. Days. Nights. Weekends. Our job forces us to keep unsociable hours because unless you specialize in dermatology and only see derm patients, you can’t control when your patients will get sick. We miss group social occasions all the time due to work commitments, and sometimes despite our plans for time off get called in anyway.

Exotic or remote locations make this worse. Your hero or heroine runs their own practice in an isolated, picturesque mountain town, or has the only clinic on a tropical island? What a lovely setting, for a non-vet. The unfortunate veterinary reality is that if you’re on your own (sole charge) and isolated is that you will never stop working. Normal hours. After hours. Emergencies. House calls. Farm visits. Checking hospital patients. If a dog gets bitten by a snake on the mountain and you are the only vet, you will be doing the two hourly checks until it’s better or dead, however many days that takes. Plus everything else at the same time.  If you’re on a tropical island and some dog eats a puffer fish, you’re trying to keep it going on a ventilator until it’s also better or dead, and you can’t afford to leave that unattended.

We will come to the date, or home, smelling like a barn. Or vomit. Or wearing the distinct aroma of anal gland secretions. Or the lingering musk of death. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of we show up like this or not at all. Sometimes we’re so desensitized and exhausted that we simply don’t notice.

Our mental health sucks, and you probably wont understand. Our suicide rate is the highest of any profession, and it’s not because we perform euthanasia. In short it’s a particular combination of duty, dedication, exhaustion, compassion fatigue, flight arrest, compounding anxiety and the general public’s expectations of us and our lives that don’t match our reality.

We often become reclusive. There’s nothing worse than trying to relax, or even accomplish something simple like buying groceries or going to your own doctor appointment, and having a client recognize you. They often start quizzing you about their pet (who isn’t even there!) and wont take “You need to bring them in to the clinic” for an answer. We often avoid shopping centers close to our workplaces for that reason, and rarely accept social media friend requests from clients on facebook. If we can’t avoid work, we can’t unwind.

We put on a brave face. We often go straight from a tearful euthanasia in one room to a happy puppy or kitten vaccination in the next, and we put forward the appropriate emotional response. We will smile and coddle the new pet, even if we’re still feeling sad about the old one. We’re very good at it, so you probably don’t recognize what we’re feeling. 

Our dinner conversation topics are… graphic. My unintentional favorite thing to discuss around the dinner table these holidays has turned out to be the various interesting things dogs have eaten and how we’ve removed them. I could go on and on… but my gentler friends remind me not to talk about the entire turkey carcass we removed from a 13kg dog’s stomach while we are eating turkey

Out patients can maim, scar or kill us. Animal owners are bad enough, but many of our patients are dangerous. I always have scratches or scars on my hands and arms, and usually have bruises on my legs. Some weeks it seriously looks like I’ve been beat up on a regular basis, but it’s just patients.

Work is usually busy. You can’t reasonably expect us to be available to talk to us any time you just ‘pop in’. We have surgeries going on, other patients to see, specialists to call, wildlife to treat, etc. Nor is it reasonable to assume we can always drop everything at work and just leave to go somewhere.

We are complex, educated, hard working individuals in a demanding and emotionally draining job. The darkness in our profession rarely penetrates the public perception of veterinarians, but it’s a large part of existence for us.

You don’t see the Bondi Vet at his lowest points, but don’t believe for a moment they’ve never been there.

anonymous asked:

I'm hoping your infinite awesomeness can work to my advantage. I've recently read unacceptable by Patchouli (lifelesslyndsey) and now I'm hankering for similar Omega Stiles fics. Sterek preferable. So instead of Omegas being treated like weak fluffy sex pots that need big strong alphas to protect and knot them (though i love that kind of fic too) i'm looking for fics where Omegas are strong, sexy, devious and completely in control of who knots them and when. Have I mention your awesomeness?

We do our best!  ;)  I found a few, they’re probably not exactly what you’re looking for, but they contain non-traditional A/B/O dynamics.  -Emmy

Written for this Anon prompt here: Hello, love your writing. Prompt, Sterek with mpreg. Stiles as modern and intellectual as he is, all he ever wanted to be was a homemaker (a seriously highly educated mum) with a dozen of mini him and his spouse, implementing home teaching as well since he have a PhD in child psychology so why not use it. Though nowadays society looks down on homemakers. Kinks: Tactility, Stiles loves Derek’s manboobs (only buff guys have these), preggers!Stiles, scent-marking, possessiveness, jealousy, marking.—Stiles could care less what they say, he was truly happy with how his life was going. He was mated to a possessive, providing alpha named Derek Hale, now heavily pregnant with his first pup, and studying hard to get his degree to become a professional stay-at-home dad.What was so wrong with that?

When an eligible omega glanced your way, you were supposed to glance back. Derek could hear an echo of his mother’s voice in his head, gently reminding him there were alphas who would kill to find themselves the focus of an omega’s interest.

Derek didn’t have the dominating personality or drive necessary to be classified as alpha, and there was no bright spark of appeal about him to say he was omega. He was tall and in good shape. He had a pretty face, dark hair and light eyes, good bone structure. But he had no need to get in fights or conquer the world. He didn’t even like arguing with his family. He was solidly beta, and wouldn’t have minded, never had minded, except for when Stiles was near.

My friend, Shelby, asked for this in her sequel: tying up, pack omega, darkness

The beta is compliant, and his eyes are still flashing at Stiles as he whines for forgiveness.

Stiles rumbles deeply at him, “I’m your omega now.

“Put Peter on the phone,” Stiles says, too sharp to be polite.

“What?”  Derek sounds completely thrown.  “Stiles, I don’t think— Okay, you’re obviously not understanding what’s happening here.  Peter isn’t talking.  He’s basically just growling at this point, and he’s rounding on anyone that gets too close.  He actually bit me when I tried to take back my pillow.  I nearly lost a thumb.”

“Derek.” The reality of this shitshow of a situation is finally kicking in, undeniably, and Stiles needs to hear Peter’s voice.  “Just trust the omega, okay?  Tell him it’s me, and give him the damn phone.”

22 times Michelle Obama endured rude, racist, sexist or plain ridiculous attacks
I will miss everything about her being first lady, except for the endless barrage of insults lobbed her way.

There are many things I will miss about the Obama White House: having a first family that genuinely seems happy to be a family; a president who valued diplomacy; a first lady who was highly educated, stylish, graceful and who tried to be a positive role model. What I won’t miss is the seemingly endless barrage of attacks on her for the most mundane things. In a list that is by no means exhaustive, here’s a roundup of the vitriol I can’t wait to say goodbye to.
