I was having trouble deciding whether to go with red or blue for Deviant Art’s newest contest which has an Edgar Allan Poe theme. Thanks everyone for the comments, ended up submitting the blue one! They announce the semi finalist around August 1st.
If you’re anything like me, you’re extremely excited for the first Semi-Final of Eurovision 2015. I have a detailed post about tonight’s semi-finalists coming up in a few hours. But, you may not be sure about how you’re going to actually watch Eurovision. No worries! Here are the answers to your pleas!
Watch it on your television set! Each participating country has their own broadcast accompanied by national commentators. If you’re in the UK, tune in to BBC 3, if you’re in Belgium, tune into één, if you’re in the Netherlands, tune into NPO1, and so on.
If there’s no tv, you can watch the BBC 3 broadcast live on iPlayer. It’s only available in the UK, but if you can find a way to trick your browser into thinking you’re British (with Hola! for example) you can still tune in.
If you want to watch the contest without commentary because you want to actually hear the hosts talking, there is an official livestream of the contest oneurovision.tv.
This year for the first time, the contest will also bestreamed on YouTube, which should take the strain off of the Eurovision website.
“UN Women together with the European Commission, the Belgian Development Cooperation, and UNRIC organized a Comic and Cartoon Competition on Gender Equality in 2015. The competition invited young European comic and cartoon artists and art students, aged 18 to 28 years, to picture their understanding of women’s rights and gender equality through cartoons and comics. The comics and cartoons had to be without words. Finalists were selected by a jury composed of professional comic artists, gender equality experts and communication experts.”
Okay tumblr, I know you guys are all super into CanWNT youngster Jessie Fleming. She’s 17, she’s a force, and she’s cute, what’s not to love. Realistically though, Jessie will only be used as a sub. So let’s talk about a girl who is a main stay in our starting XI and also happens to be 19.
Fun fact, along with Christine Sinclair, there is only one member of the Canadian roster who was started every game of 2015. Do you know who that is? Kadeisha Buchanan.
The sophomore at Western Virginia University was semi-finalist for the MAC Hermann trophy this year. That makes her only one of 4 sophomore’s out of 35 semi-finalists.
The defender has played appeared in 36 games, had 33 starts and scored 2 goals.
“I’m not frightened to say it. She’s the Sinclair of defenders,” John Herdman said in May 2014 after Buchanan and Abby Wambach faced off in a 1-1 draw in Winnipeg. “She’s that good.”
