I love this city!

And there they were,

National Park Service, the leader of the rebellion, and their terrifying renegade, Merriam-Webster. 

Chris Thorndyke is a descendent of the Robotnik bloodline. After the ARK was raided and shut down, whatever family members that were left wanted to distance themselvesfrom the Robotnik name, due to a possible stigma surrounding it, or out of fear of being targeted by GUN next (if they knew the real reason why the ARK was shut down).

Chris was really adopted by Lindsey and Nelson when he was still too young to remember. His real parents either abandoned him, or were killed by that one group determined to keep Project Shadow a secret even years later. This is deeply rooted into Chris’ his fear of abandonment and why he doesn’t react well when his adoptive parents leave for such long periods of time.

What it would look like if Angelina Jolie/Megan Fox were to play Wonder Woman!

The only reason Sonic wasn’t put in jail after Adventure 2 was because it would have been a PR disaster for GUN. They knew the people would be furious if they thanked him for saving the world by imprisoning him. This is the case whether he cleared his name or not because he committed crimes during the game, including but not necessarily limited to: destruction of government property (the GUN robots), resisting arrest, and vandalism (you know you destroyed cars in City Escape, don’t lie).

Sonic’s arrest in Sonic Adventure 2 was pre-planned. Sonic was the mobian that looked the most like Shadow, so GUN informed Sonic that they would perform a staged arrest if Shadow was to commit a crime, so they could keep Shadow’s existence top-secret. After Sonic was arrested, they tested Tails to see if he was actually Tails [hence Prison Lane] and gave him a keycard. Afterwards, they used a pre-built obstacle course to test Sonic’s identity [hence Metal Harbor].

Before the past events of Sonic Adventure 2, Maria Robotnik worked as an apprentice for a nurse in one of GUN’s soldier infirmaries. Wanting to teach this to someone, she taught Shadow her medical knowledge so it could help him in future altercations. After the events of Sonic Battle, Shadow’s knowledge increased with the help of Cream, who knew a lot about medical herbs and more basic remedies due to her time with Vanilla and the Chao.

Shrine for Girls, 2015
installation inside the sixteenth-century Church of San Gallo, Venice
presented by the Brooklyn Rail Curatorial Projects at the 56th Venice Biennale

In one shrine, an altar exhibits hijabs symbolizing the 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria and another alter is in remembrance of three women who were recently gang raped, murdered and left to hang from trees in India. Cronin’s memorial explores that even though the United Nations passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, women and girls around the world continue to be among the most vulnerable members of our global society. 

The women discovered during their visit that women in the United States have “missing rights” compared to the rest of the world. For instance, the U.S. is one of three countries in the world that does not guarantee women paid maternity leave, according to the U.N. International Labour Organization. The U.N. suggests that countries guarantee at least 14 weeks of paid parental leave. Some countries go further – Iceland requires five months paid leave for each parent, and an additional two months to be shared between them.

Nurses Union Endorses Bernie Sanders Over Hillary Clinton
National Nurses United gives Bernie Sanders his first national union endorsement — and Keystone was the deciding factor.
By Evan McMorris-Santoro

“Bernie Sanders has a proven track record of uncompromised activism and advocacy for working people, and a message that resonates with nurses, and, as we have all seen, tens of thousands of people across the country,” she said. “He can talk about our issues as well as we can talk about our issues. We are proud to stand with him in his candidacy for president today.”
