public attitudes

You’ve got to watch this bad ass musical trailer for the paralympics showing the true meaning of “differently abled”

“This campaign is the most important we have ever undertaken, and isn’t just about Rio,” Channel 4 CMO Dan Brooke told Adweek. “It’s about revolutionizing public attitudes to disability forever."

Chiron - The Wounded Healer (Long Post)

To find your Chiron, get your chart on astro.com, it’s already added in.

Chiron is known as the comet asteroid. It is said to represent the deepest wounds in our natal chart - while we may have many wounds Chiron is said to be the wound of the soul, however, with wounds comes invaluable experience, lessons that we learn much quicker than others. It is important that we take into account the House and Aspect as well as it’s residing sign when looking at our Chiron placements. 

Chiron in the Signs - 

The sign that Chiron is in tells us a lot about the nature of the wound we experience. 

Chiron in Aries: This person may have deep wounds as a result of experiencing anger - either from themselves or others. Their ability to heal themselves and others focuses on their passions and their own self expression/motivation.

Chiron in Taurus: This person may have deep wounds from experiences as a result of financial instability or perhaps the greed of others. They may also have experienced wounds surrounding a lack of self-worth. Their ability to heal themselves and others focuses on their appreciation for the beauty in life and the ability to work hard for what they want. 

Chiron in Gemini: This person may have deep wounds from verbal encounters with others or situations involving early childhood, school and siblings. Their ability to heal themselves and others focuses on their communications and making themselves heard. 

Chiron in Cancer: This person may have deep wounds from family ties or conditions in the home, they may have experienced emotional trauma. Their ability to heal themselves and others focuses on their emotional intelligence and ability to accept their own feelings.

Chiron in Leo: This person may have deep wounds linked to their self-esteem and their creative expression. Their ability to heal themselves and others focuses on their artistic ability and their self-love.

Chiron in Virgo: This person may have deep wounds from academic pressure either from themselves or others. They may have expectations to live up to that result in unhappiness. Their ability to heal themselves and others focuses on their ability to take care of others while balancing their own self-care.

rose-griffes  asked:

You mentioned in passing that TWD cast kept a "just friends!" public attitude about Richonne before it happened on the show, but I was under the impression that Andrew Lincoln made shippy comments shipper for years. (I don't watch the show, but I'm surrounded by a lot of Richonne fans on tumblr.) So what went on before Rick x Michonne finally became a canon pair?

Andrew Lincoln did make shippy comments for a long time before it went canon, that’s true. The “official” line was that they were friends. The thing is, it was a love story from the start, but there wasn’t a lot of “will they/won’t they”, from the media, and fans (minus Richonners, of course) believed the “just friends” type comments and thought Andrew was just being silly when he said shippy stuff. Some still continue to say the love story came out of nowhere even though it had been building since Season 3.

Some of Andrew’s comments made it sound like he was in an uphill battle with Richonne. He’d talk about how his mom wanted it to happen and said they show needed some “political balls.” That’s probably why it flew. People could say it didn’t mean anything, because the show would never go there with their lead protag. I know there were times when I wondered if Andrew’s pro-Richonne comments were at odds with what the writers wanted.

“Yah!” Seokjin shrieked but laughter quickly spilling out over his dinner in front of him. He lowered his chopsticks piled with noodles and grinned at you. He caught you mid reach towards Noodles, quietly watching from the floor, chopsticks flinching open at his screech. You watched happily as your puppy made quick work of the noodles, small tail wagging away.

“Oh, no you don’t. You were so set on having ramen tonight, you begged me and then practically threw them at me in the store, and now you’re feeding it to the puppy. I swear, kids these days don’t appreciate a thing. When I was your age-,”

You pursed your lips and scrunched your nose as he continued on with his rant, shaking his head from side to side, but smiling none the less.

Yoongi (Suga)

You could feel the heat radiating from Yoongi’s body, his hand perched against the wall, precariously close to your burning red neck. You leaned more against the cool wall of his bedroom, heart stampeding through your chest. You licked your dry lips, Yoongi’s eyes darting to trace the motion, a crooked smile playing on his lips. “What happened to the girl back at the party? You were quite full of yourself there, teasing me with that mouth of yours.”

Hoseok (J-Hope)

“All right guys, one more time and then we’ll call it quits.” Hoseok called out, motioning for the music to cue one more time. A chorus of groans sounded from the dance studio as you stretched and tried, but failed to stifle a yawn.

“(Y/N), would you like to show us the routine since I can’t seem to keep you awake?” Hoseok called you out as a lop-sided smiled appeared on his face. You immediately straightened your posture as 14 other pairs of eyes landed on you.

“Only if you join me,” You challenged, angling your chin up and smiling. He quirked his eyebrow, a sly smile playing at the corner of his lips.

The music cued and your body moved easily with Hobi beside you, hours of sweat and practice noticeable in your movements, your attention to every detail; just the way he had taught you. 

You watched as your classmates left for their next class, and quickly finished packing up your jacket and water bottle. You felt your face heat up as you caught Hoseok watching you from across the now empty studio. You averted your gaze and quickly slinging your backpack over your shoulder, you made a beeline for the door. You inwardly cursed as you felt Hoseok grab hold of your small wrist and turn you around.

“You are going to be the death of me, little girl, I swear,” he chuckled deeply.

Namjoon (Rapmon)

“(Y/N)! Stop!” Namjoon’s deep laugh couldn’t stop from bubbling over in his throat as you continuously splashed water on him. You grinned in triumph, wanting nothing more than to hear the sound again.

“Make me!” you laughed as you kept splashing, eyes shut tight when you felt the force of your body being tackled into the water.

You lunged yourself to the surface, coughing at the intake of water and glared as Namjoon laughed harder, standing in the stomach-high water, his hair and face dripping, just like you.

You didn’t think twice and leaped in his direction, latching your arms around his neck, your weight causing him to tumble backwards, and fall back into the water. You quickly waddled as fast as you could away from the still submerged Namjoon, and made your way over to one of the many large tunnels the waterpark offered.

Namjoon followed seconds later, grabbing your wrist and lightly pushing you against the wall. Something like regret immediately filled your chest and you couldn’t seem to meet his eyes. You felt your face fill with color at the thought of him so close to you in public and you quickly patted your cheeks with your wet hands in hopes of calming them down.

“Make you? Is that a challenge?” he smirked, voice low, his face just inches from yours.

Taehyung (V)

“Come on Tae! I wanna see the giraffes~” You whined, dragging out the last word and throwing yours arms around dramatically. Your fussing earned one of his boxy smiles and a low chuckle.

Tae quickly downed the rest of his cola and threw away the can. “Okayyyyyyyy~” he mimicked your whining, smiling once more when your lip jutted out in a pout. You lightly swatted at his arm, earning you an over-exaggerated yell from Tae and a full blown show of him on his knees, holding onto his upper arm where you had hit him.

You giggled at his antics and whined more. “Come ON Tae!” You bounced on your toes in place, excitement running through you.

Aish, you’re cute Jagi,” Tae exclaimed as he pulled himself up from the walkway.  You half bounced, half pulled Taehyung along as you saw the sign for the African animal exhibit.

“Look Tae! There they are!” You announced loudly, pointing in the animals direction and looked back at the boy you had called. He smiled fondly at you, and watched as you ran the rest of the way to the ledge and handrail that led out to the large open field.

You bounced more in excitement, holding onto the rail and looked around for any sign of the wildlife. “Jagi,” Tae called softly, lips brushing your ear, his arms snaking around your waist. You stiffened at the public display of affection, a deep blush crawling up your neck and onto your cheeks. “I swear, you’re too cute for your own good.”

Jimin

“Jimin-ah, I just styled your hair. Do you have to ruffle it already?” You questioned the idol as he sat in your styling chair, shaking his head and running a hand through his bangs. “Don’t make me ask you to sit on your hands like I do my niece.”

“I’m sorry Noona, its just a nervous habit.” he apologized, setting his hands down neatly in his lap. You watched as he played with his thumb and forefinger, another nervous habit you knew he had.

“(Y/N), hurry up, they’re on in five,” another member of the styling team chided you and you sighed in frustration. You eyed the other members as they exited out into the hall and turned your gaze back onto Jimin.

He was looking up at you, while you watched him through the mirror, deciding on how to fix his hair quickly. “You’re really pretty, Noona,” you barely heard him mumble. Color immediately shot to your face as you tried to focus on anything other than him and how his eyes fell on your lips.

You naturally licked your now dry lips, his eyes following the motion intently. You cleared your throat, willing your voice to sound normal as you spoke. “I need to fix your hair,” you mumbled more to yourself to alleviate some of the tension that was now filling the room. The stare he was giving you was enough to melt you to the floor. You could feel his gaze on you as he traced your features with his eyes while you blow-dried the front of his bangs.

“I’ll see you later, Noona,” He smiled softly minutes later, as he exited the room.

Jungkook

A/N: Guys I can’t this gif is too f*cking cute

“Alright, come on you guys! Time to get up!” you yelled, hoping your voice would carry to all 4 rooms as you walked down the hallway of their dorm. You heard groaning from multiple rooms, which meant you were doing your job properly. You had just started maybe a month ago as one of the managers for BTS, and being the new kid, you got the short end of the stick on jobs. Which meant you were usually the one to wake them up, go on coffee runs, and even grocery shop if they didn’t have time.

You greeted the boys cheerfully as they filed out from their shared rooms, either them mumbling a “Hello” in return or eyes still closed in hopes of sleep and completely missing your presence. You silently counted heads as they made their way towards the living room to be notified of today’s schedule, and in the end, only counting 6.

You peeked in to the rooms to see bed covers half-hazardly thrown to the side or completely off the bed, your eyes finally landing on a still sleeping mass of blankets you could only assume to be Jungkook.

A soft sigh escaped your lips as you walked over towards the sleeping form and gently shook what you assumed to be his shoulder. “Kookie, come on. You need to get up so we can get today started.”

Jungkook gave a lack-luster groan and a barely recognizable “Five more minutes”. You contemplated your options; Dumping water on him would probably be too harsh, but you also really needed to get him up before the other boys started falling asleep in the living room.

You blinked, your eyes focusing back on the lump in front of you. You watched as the blankets were slowly pulled down from his head to reveal just the top of his eyes.

“I’m still here Jungkook,” you deadpanned.

The maknae pulled the covers down from his face and gave a toothy grin, a small giggle escaping. You pulled your arms across your chest, a hand resting over your mouth in an attempt to hide your smile and your slight blush. This kid is really too cute. You tried to push away the invading thought, but it just wouldn’t leave. An exasperated sigh left you and you ruffled his hair in fondness, letting your full smile fill your features.

The stupid mindset regarding liking Godzilla films.

Right now I’m pretty pissed off because of the stupid mindset people have when referring to the Godzilla films.

‘they’re pretty bad but I like them’
'I like them even though the story sucks’
'the effects are bad but I like them’

I hate how it seems you have to degrade the films in order to avoid ridicule for being a Godzilla fan. You have to explicitly spell out issues with these films just so people know that you’re normal - that you’re not a weirdo who actually enjoys all aspects of these films. It’s an extension of this definitely western opinion that these films are inherently bad and should be looked upon as so. 

It’s essentially a subtle apology for enjoying Godzilla movies. I’m sick of it.

Embrace being a fan if you are one - 'I love the Godzilla films. They’re awesome!’ - no 'but they’re bad’, no 'but the effects suck’ - nothing like that. 

The Godzilla movies are awesome. The effects are meticulously crafted  and often quite astounding, the story lines are fantastical and I love everything about them. End of.

This corporate giant is openly calling for government censorship and propaganda, total information dominance, and the manner he describes is reminiscent of the Orwellian model all the way down to utilizing the children to control the adults. I don’t care what your political persuasion is or what you think about fake news. Everyone should find this attitude, this public campaign, deeply disturbing.

I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. When I feel pain, that’s when I start counting, because that’s when it really counts.

anonymous asked:

In your Roman AU is killing other demigods more common? In particular, has Percy killed any humans?

Yes, it’s more common… and yes, he has. Percy wasn’t so forgiving of traitors in this universe and the New Romans heartily approved of that attitude. However, public opinion started to turn on him after the way he decided to deal with Octavian.
