Vocab List is Up!

For those who don’t know, I’ve been working on a list of star wars vocabulary to be used as reference. It’s finally ready to go, and you can find it here.

It’s also linked in my navigation tab, and in my bio (for those on mobile). Use it whenever you want, and don’t be afraid to suggest that something be added. Thanks to everyone who has already either suggested stuff or sent in asks about terminology! I hope you all find this useful.

Good luck to everybody with their writing!

Here’s an updated list of tags I use regularly on my blog, to categorize all my spells and posts into. Keep in mind the “k” at the end of “magic” is used for aesthetic only; I know of its origins and what it’s supposed to stand for, but it’s not how I use it.

Just want to make people aware that today is the annual Disability Day of Mourning, in which we mourn those with disabilities who have been lost to interpersonal violence (especially from family and loved ones) due to their disabilities, which is often referred to as “mercy killings” or “euthanasia”.

Take a moment today to reflect on your role in society and how it affects Disabled folks: do you believe those in pain? Do you support those in medical crises? Do you advocate for accessibility and equal treatment in society for disabled people? Do you support people involuntarily incarcerated in mental facilities or otherwise being forced into abusive “treatment”? How can you extend solidarity to PwD and disability self-advocates?

Check out ASAN (the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network), AWN (the Autism Women’s Network), ADAPT (American Disabled Attendant Programs Today), Not Dead Yet, and the neurodiversity and cripple-punk movements (noting that cripple is a slur to only be reclaimed by physically disabled people. if you’re not physically disabled, please use c-punk when referring to the movement). Feel free to track me down with any questions/ideas!

Under the cut, there are 142 gif icons of the beautiful Madison Beer that I made myself. None of the gifs I used were my own, I simply resized and cropped them.

“I’ve always believed that the real measure of celebrity success was not just how famous he becomes but what he does with that fame and fortune. Especially in today’s technological and media advanced society, the attention and fortune showered on an individual celebrity is often times immensely disproportionate to his or her achievements. 

Today a person can literally become a celebrity over night throughout the entire world, and that kind of attention can be difficult for an individual to handle. But I have also learned that such fame can also be an enormous effective medium to focus attention and mobilize resources for a worthy cause. I have been blessed with so much and have an opportunity to do what few other can. But I believe it is more than just an opportunity, but a duty. I feel to reap and enjoy the fruits of my talents for myself would be selfish, irresponsible and unconscionable. In these days of such abundance and advancement-and what we can do- it pains me to think that we do so little for our children. 

In some ways I feel undeserving to receive an award for something that is my duty. I accept this award as a gesture of encouraging, from the people of India and the commission, to do more for manking. I love you very much.”

anonymous asked:

Not sure if you can answer this but I'd really like an explanation from a game developer about this. Usually when mobile comes come out, they come out on iOS first and then a few weeks, or months, later on Android. Sometimes games are iOS exclusive. A lot of people say iOS is the way to go for mobile gaming but I think that's not true at all considering we have devices such as Nvidia Shield and the new Android version (6) with great performance. Is there a specific reason why iOS is prefered?

There’s two main reasons for this that work together to make iOS a more appealing platform in general than Android. Let me explain.

#1: iOS has a huge installed base. 

There are a whole lot of apple product users. While they are not the majority of the market, it is the one platform that is clearly leading in the mobile market. Developers tend to aim for the platform that reaches the most users efficiently, so the enormous iOS installed base all running iOS makes them an ideal target platform for the number of potential customers.

#2: Apple devices are standardized, while Android devices are not

There are a handful of different iOS devices. The operating system, technical specifications, screen resolution, etc. for each iteration of apple device is pretty similar. If you’re developing for iOS, you know what you’re working with. If you are looking at Android as a platform, you start getting into the wilderness. Major telecom carriers each have their own different versions of the operating system, while some users run the stock version of Android instead. Each manufacturer also has different hardware specs that they run in their devices. Features like screen resolution and aspect ratio differ greatly from device to device. Some devices don’t have multitouch, others might have a hardware keyboard instead of a software keyboard. Most of these potential variations must be handled, because you can’t guarantee what sort of device that your android user will be running. It might be an old Motorola, or a new Samsung, or a middle-of-the-road jailbroken HTC. That all adds up to additional development time for the same app that may get dragged down in reviews from a user who happens to have an unsupported hardware configuration.

When combined, these two reasons make it much more financially compelling to go for iOS over Android as a platform. Things are more standardized, and you will reach more of your target audience for the time spent in development. The tradeoff is the sort of issues dealing with developing apple products usually have, but that’s the gist of it - you reach more people who can reliably run your software on iOS than Android.
