standards of learning

for people wondering why its ok to make fun of big buzzfeed artists in their mid 20s/early 30s but not kids that may use a popular artstyle, its the same reason gordon ramsey is an asshole to all the adults on his shows but really sweet to the children.

he screams at adults and insults them because theyre experienced and claim to be professionals, but still put out subpar content. an adult with culinary degrees should not be giving out frozen/rotten/bland food.

a child is still learning. they dont have the experience or education that it takes to be expected to preform at that professional level. if a 14 year old kid puts out something that might not be up to standard, its because theyre still learning. and they never claim to be boasting these huge important degrees and they dont get paid to copy/paste the same bullshit over and over again. also, since theyre still developing, its super detrimental to their progress to see hyper critical posts about their art style, especially made by adults or more experienced artists.

so making fun of artists like adam ellis for putting out and getting paid for traced and copied artwork is no where NEAR on par with making fun of new artists that may choose popular art styles just to get into drawing and putting them in cringe comps and calling them out for…….idk..just being new to art?

✨ you should know:

In Hindi we don’t say “husband”, we say “पति (pati)”, which literally translates to the suffix for “owner” or “master”. For example, the word “राष्ट्रपति (rashtrapati)” means “president” but literally translates to “master of the nation”. I think this says a lot about the backwards culture in India, in terms of the prevailing inequality between men and women. Even the word for husband implies ownership and dominance over the spouse.

“…what would it take for me to be like you?”

In Mexico, as well as many other countries, we advance our clocks 1hr during spring-summer, so the daylight lasts longer in the evening. I think this works in countries closer to the poles, but the closer you get to the Ecuator the daylight doesn’t change much during the year. So, honestly I don’t think it works in Mexico, but we have to do it.

Making standard solutions to make a calibration curve. 

This is a common analytical technique used to determine the concentration of an unknown solution. In this case I was using UV-vis however you can make these for flame atomic spectroscopy and other techniques too. You plot a graph of your absorption readings against your known concentrations, get a linear line of best fit. Measure the absorbance of your unknown and read off the graph to determine your concentration. 

Further analysis would be the application of the Beer-Lambert law: Absorbance= concentration x path length x molar absorptivity

Disney songs in Arabic

More Disney songs! This time in Arabic~

 Some notes: I tried my best to find the correct Arabic title, but it’s possible that there may be an error or two. If you notice, I couldn’t even find an Arabic title for some of the songs, so I apologize for that! But again, I did try my best. Most of these are Egyptian Arabic, but there are a few MSA versions scattered throughout. The english titles next to the Arabic is not necessarily a translation, but rather the english title. I apologize if your favourite Disney film or song didn’t make the list, I definitely didn’t get all of them. Also, I tried my best to find videos that had subtitles and a translation, but unfortunately not all of them have it. You can always do a quick google search if you want the lyrics and/or english translation. 

I’d also like to give a huge thanks and credit to the creators who translated and subtitled these videos! They did all the work, afterall.

My biggest bug bear is the fandom saying that Sansa is the reason Ned died. Like, yes she ran to Cersei but that's not why Ned was killed. Ned was killed because he confronted Cersei about her children. That's what killed Ned, not Sansa going to Cersei, not Catelyn capturing Tyrion. They added to the tension but Sansa always seems to get blamed. Ned wouldn't blame Sansa, he happily sacrificed himself for his little girl and would never ever blame her for his death

Anon here we touch a sore spot for Sansa, and the opinion most of the fandom has on her character.  Before saying anything, I want to make a  distinction between what is “Intetional foul” (or as I say in italian: dolo) and misconduct (or italian: colpa). 

Intetional foul: is when you know what you are doing is wrong, is illegal, AND you are aware of all the facts and consequences (which is more bad)

misconduct: is when you still do the wrong, illegal thing, but you are not doing it with intent. Meaning you dont know or understan all the facts and consequences. 

What Sansa did is a misconduct, meaning she did betray Ned,  (so we disagree on this) but she didnt know all the consequences and the facts of the events. This is clear in text: 

Sansa looked up from her food. “If she can have a dancing lesson, why won’t you let me say farewell to Prince Joffrey?

“I would gladly go with her, Lord Eddard,” Septa Mordane offered. “There would be no question of her missing the ship.”

“it will not be wise for you to go to joffrey right now sansa, i am sorry"

Sansa eyes filled with tears “but why?”

“Sansa your lord father knows best” septa mordane said. “You are not to question his decisions”

“Its not fair” sansa pushed back her table,knocked over her chair and ran weeping from the solar.

Sansa here asks why she cant see Joffrey, but Ned doesnt explain it. So she doesnt know all the facts. Sure Ned told her  they are in danger but he never said the reason for it. He never told her the truth about Joffrey. 

As for Sansa, she knows that she is doing a wrong thing when she goes to Cersei (she says it herself)

“How well I know that, child,” Cersei said, her voice so kind and sweet.

 "Why else should you have come to me and told me of your father’s plan to send you away from us, if not for love?“

“It was for love,” Sansa said in a rush.

 "Father wouldn’t even give me leave to say farewell.“ She was the good girl, the obedient girl, but she had felt as wicked as Arya that morning, sneaking away from Septa Mordane, defying her lord father. She had never done anything so willful before, and she would never have done it then if she hadn’t loved Joffrey as much as she did.

So yes Sansa did something very wrong, but again she didnt know the mess that it would happen, because she didnt know all the facts (because again Ned didnt tell her). So while yes she defied her father, she had NO idea that it would be followed by her (and arya) imprisoment. (Ned was already screwed, littlefinger saw to that!). 

Sansa “betrayal” (or as i prefer to call it “ Misbehavior”) is the surprise of the series. Since the beginning she is always portrayed as a girl who respects the rules, who is obidient and courteous. (which for me is  sign  of her desire to be loved)  

Even Tyrion  is surprised by her willful behavior. (and he barely knew her…):

"Littlefinger made the arrangements. We needed Slynt’s gold cloaks. Eddard Stark was plotting with Renly and he’d written to Lord Stannis, offering him the throne. We might have lost all. Even so, it was a close thing. If Sansa hadn’t come to me and told me all her father’s plans . . .

"Tyrion was surprised. "Truly? His own daughter?” Sansa had always seemed such a sweet child, tender and courteous.

“The girl was wet with love. She would have done anything for Joffrey, until he cut off her father’s head and called it mercy. That put an end to that.”

 So in conclusion I would say the blame in this case is on both sides, Sansa and Ned. And it makes sense given how both in KL and in the trident accident, turned a blind eye and didnt want to see how awful Robert (in ned case) and Cersei/Joffrey (in sansa case) were. Having trouble with facing the “ugly” reality is a strong part of Sansa as a character, something that she has to be confronted with sooner than later. 

I know most of the fandom hates Sansa for this, or doesnt believe she did it, but to me this episode is what makes her so HUMAN. She makes a mistake true, but her reasoning its so relatable to me. She does it for love, because Sansa (to me) is a character who at the end of things doenst want to be queen, or rule or be a political masterming, she just want to love and be loved by someone. 

 (my guess: her dream of loving and being loved by that someone will happen when she has children of her own…) 

“You ruined yourself. You had a idol face and body, too bad you ruined yourself. You are a menace to our citizens.”

 As much of you know, I’m currently spending time in South Korea for my a surprise and sudden employment opportunity that I simply could not reject. As I’d been living in the central hub of Seoul, my experiences being a member of the Korean culture (I am of Korean and Filipino blood) were never really anything out of the ordinary than any other young citizen. However, I had an experience last night that deeply, deeply, deeply, effected me and made me sit and think for quite some time on this topic, on this very night.
