section 31

“I accidentally called Section 31 “Area 51″ and just made a headcanon for myself about where Section 31 came from.”

______

Its April of 2063, a lone man stares out the window of his office of area 51. He is smoking a cigar, staring at the night sky. Intelligence reports just came out about strange happenings in a small run down town in Montana. The man makes a note to send someone over to investigate before wild rumors of aliens start flying as he puts out his used cigar.

As he lights up his second cigar, he sees a bright light in the distance, it looks like a satellite dropping to earth, but it doesn’t look like its falling very fast. He goes over to his personal telescope and looks through, he can just make out the faint shape of a ship of strange design, a shuttlecraft perhaps. He telephones down to his underling to find out whats going on.

An hour later he gets the news, a strange alien race, called Vulcans, have initiated first contact with a human named Zefram Cochrane. The man puts down his cigar as he looks over the reports. The truth was out, we really aren’t alone, and there was nothing more Area 51 could do to stop this knowledge, especially since the US government also issued orders to disband.

He twisted his chair around and leaned back, pausing before getting out of the chair. He walked over to a sealed cabinet, unlocked it, and pulled out an envelope labeled “Section 31″, he never thought he would need it, but the time has come, someone needs to protect Earth after all. The man knows it won’t be official, it’ll be an off the record organization, dangerous, but needed in his mind, and he knows a few people in the world governments that would sympathize with him.

He tucks the envelope under his arm, and walks out of the room, it’s doubtful anyone would hear from him again.

Favourite Recurring Characters: Luther Sloan (DS9)

“I dedicated my life to the preservation and the protection of the Federation. This duty, which I carried out to the best of my ability, took precedence over everything else. My parents, my wife, my children. I lived in a world of secrets, of sabotage and deceit. I spent so much time erasing my movements, covering my tracks, that now that I look back at my life, I find nothing. It’s as if I never really existed. I cheated you all out of being in my life. And what’s more, I cheated myself as well. Now I know a simple apology won’t change that. Still, I feel the need to apologise anyway. No tears, please. My death isn’t a tragedy, it’s a celebration. In death, I can finally step out of the shadows and prove to myself that I existed. That I lived.” - Luther Sloan [Extreme Measures]

Your Quinoa Habit Really Did Help Peru's Poor. But There's Trouble Ahead
Headlines once warned the global quinoa boom was putting the nutritious crop out of the reach of those who grow it. New studies put those fears to rest. But bad news may loom for Andean farmers.

The price of quinoa tripled from 2006 to 2013 as America and Europe discovered this new superfood. That led to scary media reports that the people who grew it in the high Andes mountains of Bolivia and Peru could no longer afford to eat it. And while, as we reported, groups working on the ground tried to spread the word that your love of quinoa was actually helping Andean farmers, that was still anecdote rather than evidence.

The lack of evidence didn’t seem right to Marc Bellemare, an agricultural economist at the University of Minnesota, or Seth Gitter, another economist at Towson University in Maryland. They hadn’t met, but Gitter knew of a data source that could provide solid evidence, and the two teamed up. They recently published their results in a working paper.

The data source is ENAHO, the national survey of about 22,000 randomly selected households that the government of Peru carries out every year and that covers a huge range of information about what households grow, spend and eat.

Diary Of A Saudi Girl: Karate Lover, Science Nerd ... Bride?
For two years, Majd Abdulghani kept a journal during a crossroads in her life: Should she get married or keep studying? Or can she do both?

“I like genetics and I like karate.”

She counts in Japanese recreationally. She takes karate classes secretly, comparing it to Fight Club. And her parents keep bugging her to get married, while bragging how good she is at memorizing the Quran.

This is the radio diary of Majd Abdulghani, a charming, normal young Saudi woman. In a time where entrenched interests seek to demonize any and all Muslims, it’s worth taking time to listen to this diary and remember how similar and human we all are.
