me & my fave hanging out (im trying to do the same weird as fuck turtle mouth is it working?)
where does marvel find all these uncomfortably similar-looking actors named chris?
PROOF OF A CHRIS VAULT:
Elephants walking through a rain forest.
ahh they look like bunnies in grass!!
casual racism includes:
the way people trivialize black women so much to the point where fat black women are constantly the subject of gifs and nobody will admit that it’s because they enjoy the stereotype of the “big black ghetto woman” doing something like “ahh praise da lawd” or “ohh babe” or some shit like that
Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.
His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.
The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.
The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”, which contains sections for calories consumed and calories burned.
While this may be useful for those looking to monitor their fitness, it could be triggering and harmful to those suffering with or in recovery from eating disorders, especially in sufferers with obsessive compulsive tendencies they find it very hard to abstain from, such as calorie counting, body measuring and weighing.
Whilst of course the app cannot force you to use it, it cannot be deleted, so will be present within your apps and can be a source of feelings of temptation to record numbers and of guilt and judgement for not using the app.
If you personally feel you could not emotionally handle the presence of this app, and it would be detrimental to your recovery, please do not download IOS8. I do not know if a new IOS can be avoided permanently (if anyone has any information on this please do add it to the post), but if it cannot then please use the time you have to prepare yourself for the app, and to reinforce reminders that you do not have to calorie count, you do not have to weigh yourself, you do not owe proof of exercise to anyone, person or app.reblog this please - it is so incredibly shitty of apple to do this
Tony Hansberry II was a ninth-grader. The new sewing technique he has developed helps to to reduce the risk of complications and simplifies the hysterectomy procedure for less seasoned surgeons.
His goal is to attend medical school and become a neurosurgeon. For Tony, it all began in school. He attends Darnell-Cookman School of the Medical Arts, a medical magnet school for middle and high schoolstudents. As part of its integrated medical curriculum, students receive medical instruction, but are also exposed to medical professionals who demonstrate advanced surgical techniques with specialized equipment. His lead medical teacher, Angela TenBroeck, told the Florida Times-Union that Hansberry is a typical student, but is way ahead of his classmates when it comes to surgical skills “I would put him up against a first year medical student. He is an outstanding young man,” she said.
During his summer break, Tony volunteered at the University of Florida’s Center for Simulation Education and Safety Research (CSESaR) at Shands Jacksonville Hospital. He was supervised by Dr. Brent Siebel, a urogynecologist, and Bruce Nappi, the administrative director. Together they worked with Tony exploring the mannequins and simulation equipment that physicians and nurses use in training. He became quite interested in invasive surgery and using laparoscopic instruments. As the story goes, one day an obstetrics and gynecology professor asked the group to help him figure out why no one was using a particular surgical device, called an endostitch for hysterectomy suturing procedures. This long medical device has clamps on the end, but Tony used the instrument in a new way allowing for vertical suturing, instead of the traditional horizontal method. After two days, Tony had perfected and tested his new technique. He soon developed a science fair project comparing the suturing times of the vertical endostitch closures vs the horizontal closures using a conventional needle driver instrument.
His results showed he was able to stitch three times faster using this new method. Use of this inventive technique may lead to shorter surgical times and improved patient treatment.

Humans aren’t the only creatures in the world that wage endless wars. According to a new entomological study, spiders and ants in eastern Australia have been waging a war of attrition that has been going on for countless generations.
Eric Yip at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel has been studying Avondale spiders, also known as flat huntsman spiders, for nearly a decade.
The spiders, which hunt the particularly dry forests of eastern Australia, are pretty stunning to see. Growing to about eight inches (20 cm) wide, the huntsman boasts long-spindly legs and a terrifying large set of fangs.
What makes them most interesting to experts, however, is the fact that they are one of the few spiders that live in social groups but hunt alone. The groups are simple matriarchal societies of 100 to 300 spiders. Amazingly, the eldest female spider, the head of the group, usually mothered the entire swarm over several years, save for a few immigrants.
In this way, they are not much different from ants, and that of course can put local ant populations on edge.
According to Yip, he witnessed two instances in which bulldog ants invaded huntsman nests, even driving the spiders out and defacing their home. This caused him to wonder, “is this a common occurrence?”
To find out, the researcher reportedly set up 132 nest boxes (120 of which were colonized by huntsman spiders) throughout Australian forests.
As described in a study recently published in the journal Insectes Sociaux, seven of the nests were invaded by local bulldog ant populations in just two months.
According to Guinness World Records, the bulldog ant is the most dangerous ant in the world, known to be capable of swarming and killing human adults within 15 minutes. They aren’t small either - about 2.5 cm long - with massive mandibles and a painful toxic bite.
In his observations, Yip detailed how these ferocious ants not only invaded colonies to kill all they could while driving out the stronger mother spider, but they then dragged twigs and sticks into the spider nest until it was no longer livable.
Spiders, in the long run, are both more energy efficient and better hunters than their insect counterparts, at least capable of winning the game of survival despite routine invasions.
That’s why Yip suspects these invasions are not exactly the signs of winning the “war” but instead acts of desperation.
