Guys I could really use your help right now. My 9 month old nephew Austin is in the hospital right now in North Carolina because he is having seizures(yesterday he had 9 in 10 mins) and we don’t know why. There’s a blood test that checks for genetic disorders that my sisters insurance outright refuses to pay for or even bill her for so she can have answers as to what’s wrong with her son and what they need to do to fix it. I don’t have many followers at all so please can you guys spread this like wild fire. Each day that goes on with no answers is agony.if can’t donate to his go fund me please just spread this. We need as many eyes as possible to see this. tag as many things as possible that people will see. Also if anyone is interested in buying physical items from me message me bc I’ll be selling as much as I can to raise money. gofundme.com/austins-future

Schools...

Teachers get paid very little to teach. Teachers deal with kids who don’t want to learn. Teachers are paid based off how well they teach the kids who don’t want to learn. Teachers want kids to pass by having learned something but are forced to teach them enough so they pass the tests. Some teachers actually care about the students and how much they want to learn. Teachers deal with rude children and talkers. Teachers don’t get paid enough to deal with some students bullshit. Substitute teachers get paid even less, and are hired based on past performance, regardless of how badly the class behaves.
Students are constantly stressed out. Students deal with huge amounts of homework, on average, 4-5 days a week. Students are trying to complete assignments and study for 6-7 classes a day. Students deal with teachers who don’t care whether they pass the tests, because some teachers get paid well regardless of pass/fail numbers. Students don’t get enough sleep at night. Many students suffer from untreated learning disabilities, like ADHD. Students are expected to know what career field they want to be in for the rest of their lives by 18. Some students are in debt just for wanting to learn.

NOBODY IS HAPPY WITH THE NORTH AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM.

RFID tags

RFID tags are worse to beep with because they also send a signal telling the towers/system what you “took”. So, say you go to ulta and somehow miss the RFID on the back of a naked pallet, and you beep going out the door. They now know you stole a naked pallet. Other tags don’t do this, they just make the towers beep and assume you took something but have no way of telling what you took if anything (those things beep a lot, and other things can set them off). I just thought I’d write this because I’ve never seen it on tumblr or liftbr and its so important.

 Hey, Tumblr! My Capstone engineering group is working on a vagal nerve stimulation device for chronic pain and fibromyalgia and I would really appreciate it if I could interview some of you guys about fibromyalgia, chronic pain and your experiences! It would also be super awesome if I could interview anyone out there who has used a device called a P-STIM or Neuro-Stim System (NSS). If that sounds familiar but you’re not sure, it’s a device that looks like this. 

Of course, I will be respectful of your privacy and any health issues you have and I will not give out any information of yours, except our conversation or a transcript of our conversation. 

Our group is working on improving the above device so that it would not only be cheaper but easier to use. Vagal nerve stimulation has been proven to improve chronic pain (See sources 1, 2, 3, 4) and helping us improve this device in terms of usability, comfort and price might help us make vagal nerve stimulation devices a more readily available treatment. 

Thank you for your time! I hope to hear from you guys soon!

I Need Help

You guys know I hate doing this with a burning passion, and I wouldn’t be asking if I didn’t truly need help, but in in a very tight space right now.

Today, I got an email from my school saying my previously set up payment plan was not going to be acceptable. I’m in the dorms taking summer classes, and thought everything was squared away. I learned that our plan was not approved by the head of the business services department. It costs $1,040.00 USD to stay in the dorms. The original payment plan had me paying that out through the entirety of the summer. Now it’s happened that I have to pay all of it through the end of June, before summer term A is up. This means I need $338 USD by May 20th to make my first payment. If I fail to make my payment, my schedule will be dropped, I’ll be kicked out of the dorms, and will effectively become homeless. I cannot let that happen.

This is where I’m asking you guys for help. Since summer classes are intensive but short, I have a lot of time on my hands. I will be happy to perform tarot readings for every single one of my followers for $10.00 USD. My usual reading rate is $25-$30 depending, but that’s not the case right now. In all the times I’ve done readings over tumblr like this, I’ve never had this sense of urgency. I already cannot feed myself, as the job I was relying on let me go due to budgeting. I have been accepted as a tour guide in my city, but I still need to take the test in order to be hired and begin getting paid. Once that happens I should be able to cover myself. But guys, until then I am unable to do anything.

Please, I am asking you guys for help here. Normally I bring my readings down to $5.00 a piece but I’m really scared and don’t think that will help me get what I need. I am a good reader, I don’t skimp on the details, I make sure that everything is clear, I send pictures of the layout, and do absolutely anything I can to answer questions. Readings are done via email, and payments are taken via PayPal.

If you are interested in a reading, please message me here, or send something to my inbox. If you cannot buy a reading or are unwilling, please at least signal boost this post. There are 2,545 of you following me currently. I only need $338.00 to make my first payment. That’s not even a third of my followers. If you don’t want to buy a reading, but are willing to contribute even a dollar, it would be greatly appreciated.

I hate that this is what I have to do, because I don’t like asking for favors, but I’ve been trying to figure this out to no avail and I am becoming extremely scared. Please, help in any way you can, if you can.

I am being denied an education because of my hair color. Dear friends and family, I went into school today to try and take my ID picture. I was denied because of the color of my hair. I was very politely directed by Ms. Schulke to talk to the school board. Upon calling the school board and asking why colored hair, piercings, and tattoos are banned, their response was that it was a ‘distraction’. There have been several studies to show that it is in no way a distraction. The woman on the phone then went on to ramble about how places of profession do not allow it. I then asked her why my place of work, an establishment of professionalism, where I am PAID to be there allowed it, but my school, where I am forced to be there did not. She then contradicted herself and told me that she was not talking about my places of recreation. My work is not a place of recreation. I do not spend my free time there. The woman on the phone told me that if I showed up to school on Monday with purple hair that I was going to be placed in ISS, even after I explained to her that I can not dye my hair for several weeks, or else it will be ruined. She insited that I dye it back. I told her that if anybody placed me in ISS because of the color of my hair, then I was going to drop out of the school district and take them to court. So I am asking each and every one of you to please share this post, or the picture in my next post, to help support me. I would greatly appreciate it. There will be a petition to sign soon. -Isabelle

Hey guys, I want to talk to you about how disgusting my school is. This morning I was hungry, on rare occasions do I actually eat food in the morning and the one morning I do, there is mold covering almost ¾ of this strawberry. Now I’ve been skeptical about school food before, I’ve had a couple friends work in the back and I’ve been told the horror stories of cockroaches on the counters, them reusing old food (not the mention the serving of stale chips every single Tuesday) but I believed that they wouldn’t do that to us…well I’ve been proved wrong. Not only was my strawberry molded but also two of my friends strawberries started to mold, which means every single strawberry they served had been exposed to mold. I think the worst part about this whole experience was when I went to go return the strawberry, the lunch lady did not even seem surprised. They are supposed to be serving us to fuel, not to kill.

Our school system

Lemme tell you something. The school I used to go to had this program where everybody had to walk/bike/run/ETC 10 miles every quarter, as part of a fitness program. But, they also wanted you active in at least 1 sport, go to sleep at 8-9 p.m every night, and be active in clubs. My teachers claimed we would only get 15 minutes of each subject per day. 15 minutes times 7-8 subjects depending on what it is, let’s see…that’s 1 hour and 15 minutes - 1 hour and 30 minutes each night, haha, I wish. Every night I didn’t go to bed until 11, because of homework, sports, clubs, and the stupid miles thing. Let me remind you that this started when I was in THIRD GRADE. 11 o’ clock each night is horrible for a 9 yr old, and this routine continued until 6th grade. 3 WHOLE YEARS OF HELL. I know some people have it worse, and this is a problem.

Teacher say we get “15 minutes of homework every night.” Hahaha, BULLSHIT.

Kids arent sleeping anymore. When I was younger I never wanted to go to sleep, now, thats all I want to do. This is a problem that NEEDS TO CHANGE.

Guess who made a subspecies out of bordem :’D

These are Shadow Syrups, a subspecies of Gengar!

Shadow Syrups first appeared when a gengar had developed a disease  from being around power plant material which are high in radioactivity. After a month of resting there, the gengar began splitting it’s limbs with no pain and the skin shedding only to leave ectoplasma as the placeholder for it’s body. Once bred, many other gengars were born with this rare disease through genetics.

Shadow Syrups live near dark, polluted like areas, mostly near power plants and other places with high radiation.

They have deformed and decapitated limbs of their body that levitates with the energy its body gives out. Its able to this after adapting over the years were the nervous system gives signal of the decapitated limbs to still function and that it’s still part of its body as a functional part.

The abdomen is the most jelly like compared to it’s spine. The semi transparent fluid that surrounds it’s some what visible inners provides them nutrients and keeps them hydrated after going through a period without eating in 3 months.

They’re unable to feel pain of their limbs or any sort of body part bleed or fall off.

The ectoplasma they have is really sugary and rich in flavor as many pokemon get curious to lick it’s spines or belly. Sweet and delicious it taste, it’s a deadly poison that can severely leave the pokemon sick or dead depending how much it tries to indulge.

ATTENTION AMERICAN STUDENTS

As we all know here in America the school lunches are a heaping load of shit and quite a joke to be honest. The portions they give us are never enough, it all tastes like they fished it out of a dumpster, and some of it has even been found to have mold on it so yeah I’m pretty convinced it actually was found in a dumpster.

There are limited options on what we are able to get and those options are even more limited when there is something we are unable to eat. I myself cannot eat fructose nor drink milk which is the default drink for school lunches here. One of my friends is a vegetarian and is constantly upset about the lack of options. The school doesn’t serve any vegan food to my knowledge aside from salad. Basically if any student has a need for something else besides what the school serves on a daily basis then they’re pretty much screwed.

I have decided it’s about fucking time we do something about this shit. I myself have decided to start protesting these crappy school lunches by bringing in my own lunches. Other people in my school have already started eating at the hospital across the street and some drive to restaurants and fast food places down the street.

Basically school lunch is shit. Don’t eat it. Don’t give the school your money at all. Bring in your own lunches or buy lunch somewhere else if you can. Spread this around. This shit really needs to change.


I’ve included some examples of some of my own and my friends gross school lunches under the cut. I was unfortunately unable to get any pictures of the sour milk my friends keep finding because I keep hearing about it after the fact of it happening. If I get more pictures I’ll definitely add them.

A new tag for aro-spec and ace-spec Harry Potter content! 

Please tag your own posts with it and spread the word! Here are a few thoughts on its use:

  • This tag isn’t just for headcanons! Tag your art, picspam/aesthetic, fic, meta, anything you like as long as it’s HP and aro or ace!
  • Content doesn’t have to include both spectrums in order for you to use the tag. It can be about just aro wixen or just ace wixen.

We hope the tag will make it easier to find the HP content you’re looking for!

On April 13th 1912, Titanic’s Marconi wireless system broke down. It’s well known that this resulted in a delay which led to a backlog of messages (made worse by Titanic being in range of Cape Race and having to send many messages to and from other ships). What isn’t so widely known is the fact that when the system broke down, Jack Phillips and Harold Bride completely broke Marconi rules by taking the system apart, identifying the problem and finally managing to fix the system themselves in the early hours of April 14th. If they hadn’t, there’s a good chance the emergency system’s signal may not have been strong enough to reach the Carpathia clearly (if at all) after Titanic collided with the iceberg just a few hours later.

OPERATION OKRA (Iraq): ADELAIDE born and raised, Australian Army Signaller Natasha Miller has hung up her dancing shoes and replaced them with military boots.

To top it off, she now finds herself in Iraq helping to maintain communications systems for the 400 Australian and New Zealand troops providing training to Iraqi soldiers. 

“I always danced as I grew up, but I decided to join the Army to really challenge myself,” Signaller Miller said.

“Normally I am a radio operator, however on this deployment we are employed in a range of roles.

“Now I manage communication equipment and material.”

As a Communications Systems Operator, Signaller Miller is responsible for ensuring commanders can communicate with their trainers using both satellite terminals and radios which can be used for mounted and dismounted tasks. 

“We have a small team over here,” she said. 

“Our primary role is manning the radio 24/7 and the management of the systems.

“We basically work with radios and an array of communication systems over different types of netwrks to ensure we can talk to each other and to other Coalition forces in Iraq.

“The priority of communications is to enable the passage of information from the trainers to the commander.”

Graduating from Para Hills High in 2009 in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, Signaller Miller admits she misses her family and friends.

“Back home my friends take the opportunity to come and see me when they can which is good,” she said. 

“On the other hand, the Army has given me an independent lifestyle where I could learn about myself.”

Signaller Miller joined the Army in 2012 and this is her first deployment.

“It was what I expected in some aspects, but there are also so many unknowns, especially as we are the first rotation into Iraq.

“It’s an achievement because it is not something that all 23-year old females do.

“I am very grateful for this opportunity because you join to do your job on deployment.”

Signaller Miller said her parents, who still reside in Adelaide, are proud she is in the Army.

“My mum and dad are very supportive and always excited to hear what I have been up to,” she said.

“When they found out I was deploying to Iraq, they were shocked at first but they understand my role and knew it was what I wanted.

“From their point of view, they just want to make sure I am safe.”

Signaller Miller will return back to Australia towards the end of the year when she plans to spend Christmas at home in Adelaide.

'Affluenza' teen Ethan Couch detained in Mexico - CNN.com
Mexican authorities have detained so-called "affluenza" teen Ethan Couch and his mother near the Mexican beach resort town of Puerto Vallarta, officials said.
By Evan Perez, CNN Justice Reporter

THIS LITTLE SHITSTAIN ACTUALLY DID JUMP PAROLE AND FLEE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY!!!!

Y’all.  He killed four people.  The judge sentenced him to a fancy rehab for a few months and parole because he was just so rich he didn’t understand the consequences of his actions.  Then he continued to drunk underage, being caught playing beer pong and having it tweeted to the local authorities.  And his own mother – half of the reason he’s such a vile human being in the first place, with dad being the other half – helped him jump bail and the two of them were caught in Puerto Vallarta.  They’re on a beach vacation together when he should be locked up and in jail.

I would like to believe this would be a signal to the justice system that, hey, maybe a rich white kid should be locked up for murder the same as anyone else so they could actually learn their lesson or else they could end up catching a tan in a foreign country while you sit around with your thumb up your ass pretending to be shocked.  But that’s not how this works and we already know that.  

Talk about getting away with murder.  Four dead people and they thought he would feel some kind of remorse after a $500,000 treatment vacation in California.  They better throw his ass under the jail.  Re-sentence him.  Give him an actual sentence for each of the four people he killed.

I’m so heated right now.  I swear to god some white folks walk around acting like the law can’t touch them and given the preponderance of evidence being thrown at us time and time again, they have every right to feel that way.
