over development

Trump’s business network reached alleged Russian mobsters

To expand his real estate developments over the years, Donald Trump, his company and partners repeatedly turned to wealthy Russians and oligarchs from former Soviet republics — several allegedly connected to organized crime, according to a USA TODAY review of court cases, government and legal documents and an interview with a former federal prosecutor.

The president and his companies have been linked to at least 10 wealthy former Soviet businessmen with alleged ties to criminal organizations or money laundering.

Among them:

• A partner in the firm that developed the Trump SoHo Hotel in New York is a twice-convicted felon who spent a year in prison for stabbing a man and later scouted for Trump investments in Russia.

•  An investor in the SoHo project was accused by Belgian authorities in 2011 in a $55 million money-laundering scheme.

• Three owners of Trump condos in Florida and Manhattan were accused in federal indictments of belonging to a Russian-American organized crime group and working for a major international crime boss based in Russia.

I was reading your posts about how the HxH tumblr fandom is nice, and it really is true. Going on any other sites with HxH related material (i.e. 4chan) and it's all just shitposting and poorly developed arguments over which anime is better. Really makes me appreciate being here instead of there

oh geez i can’t even imagine a 4chan discussion about hxh, the very idea is horrifying. i definitely appreciate being here instead!!!!!

tbh I feel like jikook's relationship changed drastically around the time when jungkook turned 18 but like even before that (around danger era) they started to act kinda...different. Btw that anon's ask about it reminded me of this one fic I totally recommend you read if you haven't yet it's "just come to me" by blt_prf on ao3 and it's the realest thing ever!! I can totally see it as an explanation of how their relationship slowly developed over time and it's just sooo perfect

That would make sense! Maybe they confessed their feelings earlier on but didn’t feel comfortable acting on them until he was an adult. Jungkook certainly became more bold and confident after turning 18 (with himself and with Jimin). Sadly I wasn’t around for Danger Era so I’m gonna brush up on it~

And thanks so much for the fic rec!!! I’ll definitely read it. I’m always searching for more canon compliant fics!💖💖💖

@ people saying it was queerbait before the kiss: nO?? ?WE WATCHED A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP DEVELOP AT A NORMAL PACE !!! IT WAS NEVER QUEERBAIT, IT WAS THERE THE WHOLE TIME !!! IT WAS CANON WAY BEFORE THE KISS

This show literally did what EVERYONE wants the media to do with an lgbt relationship which is DEPICT IT AS A NATURAL THING. Instead of doing what EVERY show has done when writing a gay relationship which is being like “LOOK AT THE GAY COUPLE BEING GAY THEY ARE G A Y” and defining the relationship according to that, Yuri on Ice didn’t NEED to outright say “These men are in love” because it was so?? obvious?? I just. Please don’t discredit the first half of this show as “queerbaiting” when it was literally just the most beautifully natural and healthy development of a queer relationship we’ve ever witnessed in anime. Viktuuri has always been canon. This kiss just reaffirmed it in a really blunt way.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: i am so proud of tsukishima kei. he's come so far. not only did he actually compliment kageyama, which he would have never done back in the first season, but he actually managed to stop ushijima's spike. more than that, he planned on at least stopping a few of them before the match even started, which means he believed enough in himself to think he could actually manage to block on of the top spikers in japan. tsukishima. believed. in himself. i'm literally crying about this? tsukishima's character development is so good. it's good and pure and

Sometimes I wonder if fans make animators loose sleep over little things. Like the fact we lost our shits over the fact Keith slept with shoes on. And the animators all saw this and went “shit we’ve done it now, we got to fix it”

so they go to the writers and have to ask for a specific scene to fix their error. Like “Oh my God, we need a scene with Keith in bed.”

“Um, why?”

“We need to take his shoes off. Please, for the love of God, for the fans. Give us this second chance to make things right.”

“Alright, I suppose we can make a random scene of him looking at his knife again-”

“YES LORD PLEASE, and we’ll take his shoes and fanny pack off. The fans will be so pleased. character development.”

Writers: o-0

Animators: :D 

And then when the episode finally airs they try to make a huge deal of it. Like, LOOK LOOK FANDOM WE TOOK HIS SHOES OFF. IS IT OKAY? HAVE WE DONE GOOD?

And then the fans either loose their shit over this development with them, or find something else about it to make a big deal about it.

If only yuri knew how often and how highly people, especially his peers, think of him. I mean, he’s the first person phichit wants to share his dream show with. He took up half of yurio’s thoughts during his free skate. There, we get a glimpse on why he’s been acting the way he is with yuri: he’s seen this katsudon’s potential and it irks him that yuri couldn’t see it for himself.

Rethinking the Split House in Shanghai

The magical lane houses, which were once the dominant fabric that made urban Shanghai the intoxicating place that it was in the 1930s, are now slowly being demolished, taken over by high-density developments all over the city. Neri & Hu Design and Research Office was commissioned to reconstruct a dilapidated lane house left with almost nothing except its glorious shell in the historic and artistic Tianzifang area in Shanghai, and the mission was to transform it into three separate apartment units.

Neri&Hu’s strategy was to rethink the typology of the lane house–keeping the split level formation, a typical trait to lane houses in this city, and add spatial interest through new insertions and skylights to accentuate the architectural integrity of such a typology, contemporizing it for today’s lifestyle.

Holy shit words can’t even describe that scene. Like I could watch that scene over and over again in pure awe. Well not for the first time because I was internally screaming but now I’m watching it in awe. Stiles has come so far. It’s just truly amazing to see this boy finally confident in front of the girl he’s had a crush on for so long. And her face. HER FACE. H E R F A C E. she loved it. She loved everything about it. She loves him. Simply said.
