  • Has won 1 Major and 2 Masters (Aus. Open, Indian Wells, Miami Open)
  • In 2 of the 3 Finals, he won the first set, 6-4 & wore the Green Shirt/Black Shorts combo

In the late nineteenth century, government officials in both the United States and Australia devised new policies for indigenous peoples: “assimilation” in the United States and “protection” in Australia. As can be seen by Commissioner Morgan’s quote, officials often proclaimed that they were ushering in a new age of dealing fairly and kindly with the remaining indigenous inhabitants. Yet these new policies actually entailed one of the most draconian measures possible: the removal of indigenous children from their kin and communities to be raised in distant institutions. Instead of breaking with the past use of violence and force, these new approaches are best seen as part of a continuum of colonizing approaches, all aimed ultimately at extinguishing indigenous people ’s claims to their remaining land. 2 As the anthropologist Ann Laura Stoler finds, “The politics of compassion was not an oppositional assault on empire but a fundamental element of it”; the “production and harnessing of sentiment” comprised a key “technology of the colonial state.”

In both countries, government officials and reformers used a remarkably similar language to justify their policies. They routinely asserted that the removal of indigenous children from their families would “save” the children from lives of backwardness and poverty in their “camps” and “civilize” and make them “useful” in Australian and American societies. Authorities also warned that if children were not removed, indigenous people would become a “burden” or a “menace” to their emerging nations. Just underneath this articulated layer of justification lay a bedrock of concerns about defining and building the nation — as white, Christian, and modern. Policy makers regarded the surviving indigenous populations as standing in the way of national unity, modernity, and progress and envisioned child removal as a means to complete the colonization of indigenous peoples. Significantly, whereas U.S. authorities focused primarily on culturally assimilating Indian children, many Australian officials promoted the biological absorption of Aboriginal children, what they termed “breeding out the colour.”

A Kaiju-Sized Skull Island

So, King Kong is coming back with a new rebooted franchise, and word on the street is that they’re going to pit Kong against Godzilla again. Considering this would mean that Kong would have to be scaled-up in size in order to contend with the Big G, I’ve been wondering how that’s supposed to work, which led to this. 

As with the last map, there’s a long write-up under the cut.

under the cut, you will find a number of underused and common poc faceclaims organized by age. most of this information is from various sources, so if you find anything wrong with the list, please do not hesitate to send me a message!! this list will be updated often, so if you have any suggestions, shoot me a message here!! please like or reblog if you find this helpful!!

the restaurant au
suggested by @aggressively-falling-down-stairs!
  • jack and his husband gabe are the co-owners of Overwatch Dining
  • pharah’s the head chef
  • symmetra, zenyatta and roadhog are the assistant chefs
  • tracer, widow, and mccree are waiters
  • torbjörn, reinhardt, zaryamei, winston and junkrat are the regular customers
  • ok so the restaurant basically serves anything you want
  • there’s no menu
  • you just walk up to the counter and ask for something and chances are there’s someone who can make it
  • it’s mostly a blend of egyptian, indian and australian food
  • so like one of the specials is a curry australian-style burger served with baba ghanouj
  • pharah wears a blue apron that somehow manages to look sexy
  • symmetra cooks like she’s dancing, and sings to her curry. that’s why it tastes so good.
  • roadhog practices complete safety protocol. he wears a tiny little apron with a pig on it and has to crouch in front of the little sink every time he wants to wash his hands.
  • last time junkrat asked for a bacon burger and roadhog started bawling
  • they don’t serve pork at overwatch dining anymore
  • tracer and mccree wear the really tight half-apron things and half-buttoned up shirts
  • widow wears a custom-made purple apron that says ‘fuck off’ in french
  • she also gets really turned on when tracer has more than six buttons undone on her shirt
  • once pharah found them banging in the supply room
  • which does NOT comply with safety protocol
  • enter the fda.
  • aka hanzo and mercy
  • they wear really tight trench coats and have unnecessary notebooks
  • they sit down at a table and mccree swoops in
  • ‘good evening,’ he purrs, running his fingers over hanzo’s shoulder. ‘how may i help ya today?’
  • ‘hands off.’ hanzo says icily. mercy snorts. she already ships it.
  • ‘alrighty. miss. you want something?’
  • ‘do you have-’
  • ‘ooh. that’s a good choice. it’ll be right out.’
  • mercy and hanzo sit there in silence. both of them are very confused. for different reasons.
  • mccree comes striding in with two steaming plates, and sets them down.
  • ‘for you, misterrrr, fish and plum curry on a bed with jasmine rice, and for you, miss, pharah’s special plate. enjoy.’
  • it’s so good hanzo legitimately moans around his fork. mccree blushes a little and disappears.
  • hanzo glances at mccree’s ass as he saunters out, and mercy rolls her eyes.
  • she takes one bite and understands why hanzo was moaning. it’s like a foodgasm.
  • but they’ve got work to do. if by work you mean pharah and mccree.
  • mercy knocks at the swinging door and it opens. roadhog lets out a welcoming grunt and lumbers to the side.
  • ‘hello,’ mercy says, ‘i’m looking for the chef?’
  • ‘right here,’ comes a smoky voice, and mercy turns and sees pharah.
  • pharah pls roll down your sleeves and button up your shirt before mercy dies.
  • ‘fareeha amari,’ she says, crossing over and holding out a hand. mercy just stares at her for like 30 seconds before shaking her hand
  • she doesn’t let go and hanzo facepalms a little.
  • ‘angela ziegler, fda.’ she says, a little breathlessly, and whispers, ‘please marry me.’
  • pharah grins, holds out an arm like a gentlewoman. ‘would you like to have a look around?’
  • ‘around you, maybe.’
  • mercy pls.
  • everything’s spotless, thanks to roadhog’s incessant cleaning.
  • nothing’s out of order, except the two waiters banging in the supply room. but that’s normal.
  • as they leave, mccree slips his number into hanzo’s back pocket, and winks. hanzo denies blushing.
  • pharah and mercy bang two weeks later. everywhere. even against the counter, which definitely is not compliance with fda safety regulations. 
  • they’re almost as bad as widowtracer.

Not to be mushy but I wish I could hang out with all my mutuals….like idgaf that a bunch of y'all are Americans, one is Mexican another is Indian, another is Australian and a couple of ‘em are Canadian…

Just find a way to throw everyone in the same room and gush over fandom and hand my top notch cupcakes to y'all…. god I wanna be rich and fly y'all to a same location and make this happen…

August 3,1916 - Russians, Italians Land at Salonika

Pictured - The Russian Expeditionary Force arrives flags flying.

The French government requested 30,000 Russian reinforcements for the Western Front in 1915, prompting their ally to organize, in a show of friendship, a number of special expeditionary brigades.  The first of these special brigades arrived in France in April 1916, where it was monikered the Russian Legion and proceeded to fight on the Western Front until 1917.  More reinforcements arrived, eventually outstripping the original request by 10,000 men. 

One of these brigades, numbering 5,000 Russian soldiers, went to Greece instead of Salonika to shore up Allied positions versus the Bulgarians on the Macedonian frontier.  Another 11,000 Italian reinforcements complemented them.  The arrival of these two contingents made the Allied Army of the Orient, as the Salonika force was known, a remarkably diverse formation, counting among its ranks now French, Britons, Italians, Serbs, Indians, Africans, Russians. Australians and New Zealanders, all under the command of General Maurice Sarrail.

Additionally, the Allies gradually won over the Greeks to a more pro-Allied stance.  Streams of propaganda flowed into Athens newspapers from the front, not all of it faithfully depicting the situation on the frontier.  A young historian named Llewellyn Woodward, whose job it was to distribute information from London to Greece, remarked upon his work with distaste.  “I remember a disgusting sentence,” he later wrote, “transmitted by wireless from the propaganda office: ‘Our men are enjoying killing Germans in the spring sunshine.’
