Life Expectancy In U.S. Drops For First Time In Decades, Report Finds

One of the fundamental ways scientists measure the well-being of a nation is tracking the rate at which its citizens die and how long they can be expected to live.

So the news out of the federal government Thursday is disturbing: The overall U.S. death rate has increased for the first time in a decade, according to an analysis of the latest data. And that led to a drop in overall life expectancy for the first time since 1993, particularly among people younger than 65.

This hag.

It’s blatantly clear why they quickly rolled out the “fake news” narrative as pizzagate / spirit cooking were percolating after the election. Neither had registered in the national consciousness and neither was mentioned when the blathering began. They were just waiting for something pizzagate related to happen to hit it with both “fake news” barrels.

Now they’ll want to restrict speech. She needs a fucking jail cell and trump needs to follow through with it.


So more news came out on anime news network today about the Bleach novels.

It basically confirms that the first one will be about Renji and Rukia’s wedding, and will be entitled ‘WE DO knot ALWAYS LOVE YOU’, but it also goes on to give some more details about the second novel with Hisagi in it.

It says that:

Shūhei must throw himself into a new fight as the mystery that Kaname Tōsen left behind resurfaces. The story will reveal more details about the four noble families, the Soul King, Arrancar, and Fullbringers.

The mystery that Tosen left behind resurfaces????? I personally thought his character arc was pretty well rounded…not sure what mysteries there were to it…that’ll be interesting to hear about.

Details about the four noble families…will we finally find out who the other two are? And why the Shibas fell from grace? And about what the four noble families actually do?

And the Soul King…maybe we’ll find out who and what the Soul King is and why Aizen hated him so much…and finally get some answers about why the world didn’t implode after he died.

Not sure what details we could get about the Arrancar and the Fullbringers…apart from if this is set after the final arc and it mentions whether people like Grimmjow and Nel survived, or if Harribel was rescued (I’m still waiting for my Mashiro disappeared because she went to save Harribel side story).

Anyway, it sounds like it could be an interesting read…anyone have any thoughts?

Ok I’ve had all day to cool off and no I won’t be leaving.

I just gonna have to go through everything until I find the culprit of the problem.

Which is gonna take a while…

In the meantime into more positive news look out for a queue tomorrow, it’s something completely new and I’ve never done before and i just want to try it.

Let me know what you guys think when it’s starts.

small but impt update! 8′D

i turned off anon a few days ago bc i couldn’t keep up with messages and i won’t be answering all of them this time, sorry about that! Life is too busy atm, and 95% of them have been answered before ahahaha _(:’3 Also, i haven’t had time for tumblr messenger either! im not ignoring you i just really can’t LOL i’m more responsive on twitter tho! i can answer quicker on phone~

Secondly, if you followed my Twitter you might’ve known: Due to human error on the courier service side, i MIGHT not be able to get my reprinted merch in time for EOY. atm i’m just announcing this first so that those of you who mentioned coming to eoy for my merch will be mentally prepared _(:’3 ! Those who preordered my yoi merch at afa and opted to collect at eoy will get a sms update, if it really turns out to be bad news :( 

Lastly, THANK YOU everyone who’s sent me such sweet messages throughout, on all my socials–i can’t promise to reply everything with these unexpected circumstances happening around me all over again, but just know that i do appreciate them! <33 They help me through the day greatly!! ^^

anonymous asked:

hello, do you have any pro-hillary/genaral politics blogs you like? i'm searching for some more to follow. thank you!!! :)

Like with fandom blogs, I hesitate recc'ing Hillary/political blogs coz I don’t want to make anyone feel bad by excluding or not mentioning them, BUT I think it’s pretty obvious who I like based on which blogs I often reblog from, so I do recommend following all those you see me reblog and talk to. :)

BUT also, and this is me going a bit on a tangent so bear with it, I do recommend looking for and reading news directly from source and not just find out news from me or other bloggers here, coz lbr, most of us aren’t journalists and we all put our own bias here. While I hope people do actually click the links in my posts, but I also do highlight parts of the article I think is important or aligns with my bias, and frame my arguments on what reaffirms my already established opinion, and even I recognize the negative effects that can have, it creates an echo chamber.

Tho I will never willfully misinform or spread “fake news”, but we can’t believe everything we read on tumblr, so don’t even believe me right away, double check if what I say is actually credible. Even before “fake news” became a thing on Facebook this year, we can’t forget Tumblr has been spreading “fake news” far longer than that with many sjw posts. Like even and especially the well meaning ones are highly biased and tend to misinform by not giving the whole picture (micdotcom).

Calling ALL of tumblr I need your help!!!

The standing rock tribe are being silenced about what is going on up there with the Dakota access pipe line.

I beg of you to help me get the topic out. It will affect millions of lives. The pipe will leak into the tribes only source of drinking water. We are trying so hard to get this out on twitter and facebook, but we are being silenced.

Today a security team came into the middle of a peaceful native american protest and numerous people got maced and bitten by the dogs. 

I want you all to take a look at the terror on these young girls faces. Then I want you to take a look at the two aggressive dogs. When did it become OK to use dogs against children, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters OUR freakin people!!!
The police will only let a dog go if the suspect runs or the suspect is violent and causes a threat to the public of the officer.
Do you see a weapon in these young girls hands? Do these girls look dangerous? The answer would be no. No they don’t.
The people with the dogs aren’t even police officers! They are security guards. They couldn’t even keep control of their own dogs leading to them being attacked also.

This is happening right this second and threatening millions of lives. I have to help.
We can only break the silence if you join us in this fight. Just sharing my post helps the reality of the situation get out there.
I now beg of you to share this post in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Give them a bigger voice. Help them shout this from the roof tops. Please… Rachael <3 <3 #NoDAPL

Amandla Stenberg comes out as bisexual
"We need our voices to be louder in the media. And not just women of color — bisexual women, gay women, transgender women, mentally ill women."

Last night, Amandla Stenberg came out as bisexual in a powerful message via the Teen Vogue Snapchat:

“I wanna thank Teen Vogue for giving me this opportunity, I cannot stress enough how important representation is, so the concept that I can provide for other black girls is mind-blowing. It’s a really really hard thing to be silenced, and it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and just mold yourself into shapes that you just shouldn’t be in. As someone who identifies as a black bisexual woman, I’ve been through it, and it hurts and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable. But then I realized: because of Solange and Ava Duvernay and Willow and all the black girls watching this right now, there’s absolutely nothing but change. We cannot be suppressed. We are meant to express our joy and our love and our tears, to be big and bold and definitely not easy to swallow. I definitely believe in the concept of rebellion through selfhood, and rebellion through embracing your true identity, no matter what you’re being told. Here I am, being myself; and it’s hard and vulnerable, and it’s definitely a process, but I’m learning and growing. Thank you for supporting me and doing this, and thank you to Teen Vogue. This is just the beginning, though; we have a lot of work to do for all women of color. We need more representation in film and television. We need our voices to be louder in the media. And not just women of color — bisexual women, gay women, transgender women, mentally ill women. I’m sick of all the misogyny and homophobia and transphobia that I see around me, and I know you are too. Thank you for listening and goodnight.”
