ICE Raids in Austin: Activists rally after “unprecedented” immigration enforcement actions

  • AUSTIN, Texas – Local activists were standing up and fighting back in Austin after ongoing rumors of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in the city were confirmed Friday. 
  • Per KVUE, ICE detained 44 Mexican immigrants in Austin since Thursday — an “unprecedented” level of enforcement, according to local immigration advocates.
  • Protests formed Thursday and Friday evening outside the J.J. Pickle Federal Building in downtown Austin, where ICE was reportedly processing detainees, according to the Texas Observer. 
  • Another protest was held in North Austin near where a public ICE arrest took place Friday morning, documented in a viral video by El Mundo.
  • Eren Uribe arrived at the J.J. Pickle Building Friday in time to see ICE agents block protesters from four vans, which activists suspected contained immigrant detainees who had been nabbed and processed earlier that day, that were leaving the building. It was the first time she took part in a protest. Read more (2/11/17 8:17 PM)

RFA + V & Saeran when MC's birthday is within a week of their own birthday. Mine is 6 days before Jumins!

Normally I try to get these in the order that they came in, but I’m still riding on the birthday train so here you go!

Requests are open.~


✦ZEN: (April 1)

  • his birthday is on Man Woo Jeol (”very foolish holiday” AKA April Fool’s Day)
  • and since yours is a week later you kind of celebrate it together by extending the holiday just to be silly
  • you don’t really “prank” (much to Saeyoung’s disappointment) but you get each other little gag gifts all week long
  • you have a fancy dinner date in the middle of the week that kind of serves as both your birthday celebrations where you exchange your “real” gifts
  • you get him a self-care package with his favorite lotions, soaps, facial supplies, etc
  • he gives you flowers and a bracelet and he glows when he sees how happy he made you
  • afterward you make each other feel very special ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

✦Yoosung: (March 12)

  • the weather is finally warming up in time for your birthdays!
  • you two celebrate by taking long walks together
  • even though they’re super close together, he won’t let you combine them
  • he thinks you need a day just for you
  • so he takes you to your favorite restaurant on your birthday and you do the same for him on his
  • tbh you two both kind of use the days as excuses to spoil each other
  • rather than presents, you just spend all day doing whatever he wants on his birthday and he does the same for you
  • the time in between the birthdays is spent just being overly nice to one another RFA kind of likes to avoid those few days

✦Jaehee: (December 28)

  • Christmas, her birthday, your birthday…damn
  • they are ALL clumped together
  • she knows exactly what it’s like to have to compete with a major gift-giving holiday
  • you two decide to celebrate in the beginning of December every year to make it feel more special
  • you have a small party - RFA only
  • super lowkey: everyone’s scattered about talking, movie playing in the background
  • the party was supposed to be your gifts to one another
  • but come her birthday you pull out your gift for her anyway and on yours she did the exact same thing

✦Jumin: (October 5)

  • he doesn’t really care much about birthdays
  • that is until he finds out that you do
  • when you tell him your birthdays being close was just another special connection you two share he is sold
  • suddenly birthdays are very important
  • also suddenly understands why you want to do something for him for his birthday
  • ends up flying you two on an impromptu vacation
  • you spend a romantic long weekend away at the beach of your choice a nice break before it gets cold
  • he ends up renting out the whole place so you have your privacy

✦Saeyoung: (June 11)

  • summer calls for ice cream cake!
  • you both love it and you’re both kids at heart so it’s only natural
  • you also decide to throw a party just because
  • it’s basically a middle school party tbh
  • there are water balloons and sprinklers and squirt guns oh my
  • it becomes pretty clear that you two are competing for title of Birthday King you are targeting each other at every game
  • it’s a close call but you win in the end
    • “Aw. Well fine then - I’ll just have to be Birthday Queen.” nailed it
  • but after everyone leaves, you both are winners ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

✦V: (September 9)

  • secretly loves planning for people’s birthdays
  • was visibly excited to find out you’re a September birthday too
  • his was first, a quiet dinner and a day spent entirely together he swore that was all he wanted
  • then comes yours and you are super surprised
  • the day after his birthday the little gifts start
  • placed around the house for you to find
  • this treatment lasts the whole five days between your birthdays, and makes you feel really special
  • and you are totally doing that for him next year even if he protests

✦Saeran: (June 11)

  • he honestly wouldn’t celebrate if it weren’t for Saeyoung
  • in Mint Eye he stopped even acknowledging it what was the point
  • but now he is free and has you and your birthday is right next to theirs
  • and you obviously wanted to celebrate so he…relented
  • you all keep it lowkey - you and Saeran and Saeyoung pick a day in the middle to celebrate
  • which is mostly movies and games
  • then Saeyoung leaves the two of you alone
  • you lay on the roof and look at the sky together
  • it’s his best birthday ever but the start of many more

On this day 11 April in 1689, William and Mary were crowned together at Westminster Abbey by the Bishop of London, Henry Compton. Also on this day the Scottish Convention declared that James was no longer King of Scots.
William and Mary were offered the Scottish Crown and they accepted it on 11 May 1689. William decisively defeated James II at the Battle of the Boyne on 1 July 1690.

The Dutch artist, Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), documented the 11 April in his painting (1689) with 9 scenes of the Coronation, from the fetching of the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London to the bonfires on the River Thames.

This is my sister she has been missing since wendsday we already have posters and have alerted the whole family and police but she could literally be anywhere. Her dogs name is leah and is shy, dosnt usually bark and is a nice calm pupper.She was going to go to a sioux reservation in north Dakota but she was coming back to get her son from the hospital (Ohio) and take him with her. We are checking in Michigan because that’s where the majority of her friends are but…I’m just her little brother. I don’t know what to do. They already have missing persons posters out and I’m scared. I don’t think people come back once the posters come out..so if anyone sees her..take a picture and submit it to me please. Something. Anything.

The tattoo on her wrist is a sun holding an umbrella , both of them are her drawings.

Please reblog?

Where Shameless Went Wrong or My Protest

After a couple days of distracting myself and cooling down from the white hot rage Sunday night produced; I finally have the ability to talk about how I feel about Shameless.

I feel sometimes (a lot of times) creators don’t quite understand what they have created. This happens with books and TV shows alike. As someone who is in the midst of writing a novel, I will say all of my characters story arcs happened beyond my control. Because, here’s the thing, when you create a character they become something else. They become real in a way and its not about being the writer, being God. Its about being a vessel, a bridge.

The character becomes themselves and does as they would do and as the writer you are the vessel in which their story is told.

Where long running books and shows often fuck up is when they try to control the character and control the audience. When they think:

“I wrote them therefore whatever I make them do or say is law. Whether or not it is within their personality/character to do so.”

When the Creator thinks they are God, is when they fail.

Kate Upton completely missed the point of the Dolphins players’ protest.

Kate Upton thinks NFL players should forego their constitutional right to protest, especially on 9/11, and stand for the national anthem. On Sunday, she took to Twitter and Instagram to say so — and was met with much disagreement. 

Twitter users quickly pointed out Upton’s seemingly unchecked privilege and called her out for completely missing the point of peaceful protest. One tweet brilliantly showed how Upton’s own uncle (who is a congressman) directly disrespected those hurt by 9/11.
