Walking With the Wounded is working with the local council and police on projects in Gateshead to support ex-servicemen, with a focus on providing specialist support for mental health, including those who come into contact with the criminal justice system.

Prince Harry shared stories with project leaders and beneficiaries of these services in Gateshead, before attending a round table discussion on how multi-agency partnerships can support mental health provision for servicemen with complex needs, at the start of his visit today to the North East of England.

The next time someone (white people and ignorant black people alike) tell you that the Black Panthers were a terrorist group/hate group, kindly ask them if the KKK ever did any of this. As long as YOU know what the panthers stood for and represented, that’s all that matters.

My mother is Jewish and my dad is a gentile. I grew up pretty religiously neutral, had some Passover Seders but then the Jewish side of my family all stopped talking to each other and that was the end of that. Never had my bat mitzvah or attended services before but I want to do both. Would I likely have to convert (reform)? I don't know anyone else in my kind of situation or even how to research this really.

From what you’re telling us, you wouldn’t need to convert assuming you have unbroken matrilineage.


Keeping up with Christine Jorgensen

Before Caitlyn Jenner, there was Christine Jorgensen.

Who was the first person to become widely known in the United States for having sex reassignment surgery. Jorgensen grew up in the Bronx, New York City. Shortly after graduating from high school in 1945, she was drafted into the U.S. Army for World War II. After her service she attended several schools, worked, and around this time heard about transitioning surgery. She traveled to Europe and in Copenhagen, Denmark, obtained special permission to undergo a series of operations starting in 1951.

She returned to the United States in the early 1950s and her transformation was the subject of a New York Daily News front page story. She became an instant celebrity, using the platform to advocate for transgender people and became known for her directness and polished wit. She also worked as an actress and nightclub entertainer and recorded several songs.

From the [CORE] Documentation and Records Bureau.
Footage from Reinforcement Drone Indoctrination and Reinforcement. 

This footage immediately follows Reinforcement Drone B’s witnessing of it’s partner’s <full> conversion.

Of critical importance to consider, Drone B was offered a series of choices as it was invited to facilitate the <deeper> [CORING] of its spouse - B opted to itself be [CORED] by the attendant HOSTFORM.

Drone B accepted anal sex immediately and enthusiastically before servicing attendant HOSTFORM on its knees next to its partner, Drone A. Researchers were amazed at how quickly Drone B proceeded to <accept>, even demand [CORING] procedures simply by virtue of long-term exposure to the Program through Reinforcement Drone A.

So today I just experienced a miracle from God that only a trans person could relate to!

I was attending weekly service in my college youth group. The pastor had us bow our heads and asked us if any of us would like prayer for a personal revelation of the kingdom of heaven right now. I raised my hand.

I was totally not expecting what happened next.

Phil Coulson was at Peggy Carter’s funeral. At the start of his career with SHIELD he was wounded and given light duty on retired director Carter’s security detail. This was before the dementia got bad and with his love of history Phil got close to her and was saddened at the news of her death and attended the service to pay his respects.

anonymous asked:

What is your opinion of what's happening with the Bishops at the Synod recently? I noticed you'd mentioned getting back into the church. Also congratulations on the bean!

I actually don’t know what you’re talking about, I’m afraid. All I’ve been doing is attending local services and reconnecting with prayer, I’m by no means up to date on anything happening in the church.

General Advice for New Cities

Places of Worship

  • In Europe the cathedrals, mosques, basilicas, etc. are often the most beautiful buildings in the city. I am less familiar the attitudes of non-Christian places of worship towards visitors, but you should definitely go into every cathedral you see. They’re like little jewelry boxes.
  • Be respectful, first and foremost. It’s someone else’s place of worship first, and a tourist attraction second.
  • Make sure your shoulders and knees are covered. If you’re wearing a tank top or clothing above the knee, you will be denied entrance to many churches.
  • If you’re a woman and you’re going to be visiting any mosques (i.e. in Istanbul), pack a scarf to wear over your hair for the visit.
  • Churches are beautiful, tranquil places to sit down and have a breather away from the noise of the city, out of the sun or rain or wind. Just be quiet and respectful.
  • Attending a service in another language can be really interesting, although you should check beforehand to make sure you’d be welcome.

Christmas Markets

  • In late November through Christmas, there’s a Christmas market in just about every European city.
  • The one in Strasbourg is the most famous, but they’re all amazing.
  • Drink hot mulled wine, which I think is most accurately described by the amazing mollyhall as something that “sounds terrible but it tastes like being kissed RIGHT on the mouth by dionysus. right on the mouth, i swear to god”. There’s nothing I can say that explains it any better than that.
  • Eat whatever the local holiday food is. Without fail it will be sweet and hot and probably a bit greasy.
  • Ride the winter Ferris wheel if they have one! Carpe the hell out of that Diem.

 Student Discounts

  • An enormous number of attractions, museums, and even bars have student discounts.
  • Even if you’re not technically an EU student, or even a student at all, a relatively recent-looking and not obviously expired student ID card will help you shave money off admission fares and the like. For example, the Acropolis in Athens is free for students.
  • It’s always worth a shot.

Walking Tours

  • Pretty much every city has free walking tours. The quality varies, but it’s a good way to get oriented in a new city, learn a bit of history, hear some local jokes and folklore, and get some context for major tourist attractions.
  • To find them, ask at your hostel or Google it. They usually begin in public squares or hostel lobbies, and take an hour or two.
  • It’s polite to tip the guide, but if you can’t swing the €5 or so at least tell them you appreciated it. They usually understand if you can’t afford a tip; you’re taking a free tour, after all. You’re clearly not rolling in cash.

Street Performers

  • Almost always worth stopping for. Follow the music. You’re on vacation and if you want to stand in one place and watch an old man play an accordion for thirty minutes, the rest of the world can be damned.
  • If you give them money, make sure you’re not tossing out €1-2 coins accidentally. As someone who hurled about €7 of pocket change at a startled and joyous musician my first weekend in France, this is an easy and unfortunate mistake for Americans to make.
  • On the subject of spare change, keep all the euro pennies separate, because they’re virtually worthless but there’s always a fountain to throw coins into for luck.


  • Even if you don’t have a head for heights, I think one of the best things to do in a city is to find high ground. It could be a bell tower or a ferris wheel or just a normal hill, but seeing a city from above is always beautiful, and a great way to mentally orient yourself in a new place.
