in a full suit

i noticed a lot of people wear business attire to class at my college… i felt so awkward when i was in an elevator full of students wearing suits and blazers while i was in a sailor moon shirt and pink skirt…

Matt: “As Daredevil, I get to save the world. As a lawyer… maybe I can fix it. I need them both. That’s what I realized. The warrior and the lawyer. It doesn’t work if I only have one. That was my mistake, and my god, I paid for it. But I’m putting all of that behind me. This is my last day as Daredevil. But it’s also my first.”

Daredevil vol. 5 #25 by Charles Soule, Alec Morgan, and Matt Milla

    Matt accepts the necessity of having a dual identity, and officially switches back to the red suit. We never got a full in-universe explanation of the black costume, as much as we were hoping for one. Maybe Matt just wanted something as different from his public identity suit as possible, to emphasize his change in attitude and to bolster his new secret identity. And thanks to the Purple Children’s public assurance that Daredevil only does good things, it’s possible that no one equates a black clad DD with Shadowland anymore. Regardless, whether or not Matt meant it this way, the creative team likely intended to invoke an image of DD in mourning and turmoil. His time in the black suit encompassed a period of emotional conflict, during which Matt was struggling to decide if he’d made the right choice in breaking up with Kirsten, alienating Foggy, and retreating back into a life of masks and deception. After all of this, his return to the red suit signals his renewed confidence that he is doing the right thing, and that he feels comfortable presenting himself as the “real” Daredevil again. It’s a great moment. 

anonymous asked:

remember when all the team got upgrades and not only the red ranger? (i guess kyuranger didn't have enough budget for all 12)

to be fair the scans said that anyone on the team can use the saiko kyutama’s powers, it’s just that lucky’s the one who gets the full suit, so that’s better than something like carnival at least. im still wondering why they haven’t brought back pega-san and put him on some other kyus, but maybe they couldn’t get masaki terasoma back to voice him

Now is absolutely the time to politicize Hurricane Irma and other natural disasters

“The full suite of data we have incontrovertibly points to one conclusion: the human effects that contribute to climate change are severe, and are making these disasters we’re experiencing far more damaging than they would otherwise be. The time to transform these scientific lessons into a policy that makes our nation and our world a safer, more secure, more resilient place is now. Natural disasters will always occur, but there’s no good reason to make them worse, especially when we can do something about it today. In the long run, it may be both more compassionate and less expensive to simply craft a better policy, but we can’t do that unless we craft those policies based on the best science humanity has to offer.”

Hurricane Irma has, as of this morning, knocked out power to more than 6 million, caused the evacuation of millions more, and has caused flooding and extreme wind damage across hundreds of miles across Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. When Irma first made landfall in the Florida Keys, it set a new ‘first’ for 2017: two Category 4 (or stronger) hurricanes made landfall in the USA in the same year for the first time. This is not simply a bad year or an unlucky coincidence, but is an effect of a planet that has been artificially warmed by human activity. This continues a pattern we’ve seen globally of more intense but fewer hurricanes in numbers, and 2017 is shaping up to be the most expensive hurricane season in US history. At the same time, wildfires are ravaging the western United States, and no, that’s not coincidence, either.

We don’t have to do this to ourselves; we could craft a science-based policy on climate change to minimize the damage of these disasters in the future. The time to act is now.

One bit of characterization I like about Asami is the way she shows affection through physical contact.

(And even better is the fact that she instinctively rejects Varrick’s own friendly invasions of personal space, not to mention Mako’s attempt to end an argument with hand-holding).
