Trump is already screwing over rural and working-class Americans — just not the ones you think

In a statement Tuesday, Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) announced that the acting Secretary of the Army, Robert Speer, had “directed the Army Corps of Engineers to proceed with the easement needed to complete the Dakota Access pipeline” — an oil project the Standing Rock Sioux tribe has been protesting for months.

The news doesn’t mean the easement has been granted yet. But the Sioux and their allies have promised to fight if it moves forward.

Native Americans are rarely considered part of the “rural working-class,” a term that’s increasingly become a dog whistle for white Middle Americans. But Standing Rock Chairman Dave Archambault II was quick to disavow that notion.

“This [protest against the pipeline] is not only a Native American movement,” Archambault wrote in a letter to Trump on Jan. 25, “it is a movement of the working class and rural whose voices are often quieted at the expense of more powerful neighbors.”

Not only do indigenous people suffer from staggering health, educational and income disparities compared to the general population, they often do so far from mainstream attention. Read more

Summary: Stiles decides that, since they’re the only two single members of the pack, he and Derek should spend Valentine’s Day together.

Notes: Just some silly, light-hearted fluff. (On AO3)


Derek can hear Stiles coming from all the way down the hall, and he turns toward the door, expecting Stiles to burst in with his usual energy.

Instead, there’s just some shuffling and a sort of muffled knocking. It’s odd, because Stiles doesn’t lose keys (in fact, he just keeps them forever), but Derek goes and rolls open the door anyway.

When he does, he realizes why Stiles didn’t let himself in.

anonymous asked:

Do you know anything about Black Russian Terriers?

We’re going to do something new for asks! We will have “guest speakers” who will answer some of the fun fact asks for you. If no one’s @ is indicated, then it’s just me. Otherwise, I will let you know who has answered the ask at the bottom!

The Black Russian Terrier isn’t really a terrier in the small to medium sized dog sense. They are a large working breed. 

They originated in what is now Russia during the 1930s by a military kennel known as Red Star (based out of Moscow). They wanted to create a native breed to help the national security forces. Due to the upheaval of first the Russian Revolution of 1917, the economic depression of the late 1920s and 1930s, and then World War II, the program was a challenge. 

Following the war, it surged. The Red Star kennel used selective breeding of Giant Schnauzer, Rottweiler, Airedale, and Newfoundland, as well as 14 other breeds to create the breed we know today as the Black Russian Terrier. The BRT was bred for military and police work and by 1956, the Red Star Kennel had its breed. The first breed standard was created in 1958 but it wasn’t until 1981 that the Russian Ministry of Agriculture recognized the breed. It was international accepted by the FCI in 1984. In the United States, they are considered a rare breed. They are part of the working group under the AKC classifications.

These are NOT first time dog owner dogs. They large and strong dogs and need someone who has experience in training. They are very intelligent but can be aloof towards strangers and therefore continual training and socialization is needed. They come in one color, solid black (though a grey hair or two isn’t a problem). The males of this breed at maturity is between 27-30 inches and for females it’s between 26-29 inches. BRTs have a double coat and therefore do require daily brushing.

- unbelievers, vampire weekend


Marcus had never quite realized, before, that he could actually be lonely. He had spent his entire life surrounded by friends - other gang members kids, for the most part - and when he had decided to move away, one of the things he had been looking forward too was getting to skip all of their parties and not have to listen to their rambling and complaining and drama. But instead, he found himself… wondering. Wondering if Adrian had ever told Terry how he felt. Wondering if Draco had finally proposed to the fluffy haired girl.

When his phone rang, he took one look at the caller ID and hit answer before he had even decided he wanted to speak to her.

“Parkinson,” he breathed out, trying not to sound as desperate for human contact as he felt.

“Marcus!!” Came the half-shrill excited voice from the other end of the line. “Oh my GOD Marcus you have been gone literally forever, and then you don’t even return my texts? I thought we were friends you know.”

“Pansy,” he managed to laugh in response, “we’ve never been friends.”

“Oh, don’t be an idiot, Marc. You’ve known me since I was in nappies.”

Marcus couldn’t stop the grin that broke out on his face and he headed out of the cottage to sit on his front lawn, just in case he lost cell reception. “Sure, Pans. What do I owe the honor, then, for the phone call?”

He could nearly hear the girl on the other end of the line rolling her eyes, and he couldn’t stop the joy that bubbled up in his chest, just a little, at the reminder that he actually did have people who cared about him. That he wasn’t the only person in the world - him and the mysterious quite possibly not real naked man from his beach.

And just like that, your fate was sealed - because Min Yoongi was absolutely going to destroy you. But hell, if you weren’t going to let him, or bask happily in the flames as he did so.

And sadly, at the time, you didn’t think that your thoughts would become so literal.

Two days later you are sitting at a table located outside a small cafe that you and Yoona often find yourselves at. Whether it be because it’s nearest to the college you both attend, or how cheap their beverages are, you both are always returning to the quaint little building.

You sit with one leg crossed over the other, hair up in a messy pony tail, back pack hanging lazily off of the chair your back is pressed against. Arms strewn across the surface of the table carelessly, and mind not letting you focus on the words spewing from Yoona’s perfectly glossed lips.

distress and de-stress (M)

“I didn’t really plan this at all,” you murmured, pinching the bridge of your nose. You could feel some slight throbbing on your head starting. “I didn’t expect to see my classmate dancing as if he was on Magic Mike,” you muttered as Namjoon chuckled.

You were in your biology class, your final class before the weekend. But, as you were excited for the weekend, you were also feeling awkward because of the loud vibrating sound coming from your phone. 

Your cousin was visiting the capital after being able to score a spot on a week-long convention. Yes, you were definitely excited to see her after such a long time, but you were also aware that you were getting the attention of everybody else in your lecture class. 

She had been nagging nonstop about wanting to visit the strip clubs that were non-existent in your hometown. You didn’t blame her since your hometown’s vibe was far from the active, fast-paced lifestyle in the city you were staying in.

Fortunately, your professor who seemed too absorbed with teaching (or maybe, he stopped caring) didn’t call for your attention. You partially hoped the vibrating sound wasn’t actually noticeable, especially since you were seated at the back row of the hall. The bell rang soon after as you sighed in relief, knowing that you could finally respond to your cousin and ask her on her whereabouts before you headed to wherever she wanted to go.

“The sign-ups for the partner and project assignment will be with Kim Namjoon. Have a good weekend, class,” your professor ended his lecture as he handed a piece of paper to some bespectacled guy whom you noted was Kim Namjoon.

He was one of the top students in your year, but you were surprised that he was also taking up Biology class. This class was supposedly an elective that almost nobody took, except for those who had no more slots left during enrollment before the semester started. Obviously, your parents had a hard time sending you money because of your technology-impaired town. And so, you were resigned to the fact that you were going to take up this science class. He, on the other hand, didn’t seem like he had a hard time with his tuition fees. And it also seemed like he enjoyed the class a lot, especially since he easily became the teacher’s pet.
