”This is my favorite photo in the world - me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap.”

Guppy (Poecilia reticulata)

Guppies are native to Central and South America, and can live in a wide variety of freshwater habitats. Their tolerance for a high range of water qualities and salinity makes them a popular, hardy fish for the aquarium.

Guppies exhibit sexual dimorphism, with females having a rounder, drab body, although some varieties may have colourful fins. On the other hand, males are have slimmer bodies and are very colourful, with beautiful flowing fins.

Human selection has proliferated desirable traits such as bright colors and large fins. Many generations of selective breeding has resulted in guppies with countless different combinations of patterns and colours.

All the fish pictured are males

Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Belatrix pretending to be Hermione pretending to be Belatrix


No but her acting was so good in this scene that I had to pause and zoom in on her face to make sure it wasn’t actually Emma in makeup, and even then I wasn’t totally convinced.

Emma acted out the scene first, and then Helena Bonham Carter mimicked what she did. so it was Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Emma Watson pretending to be Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Bellatrix pretending to be Hermione pretending to be Bellatrix.

WASHINGTON — New abortion provider restrictions that could lead several clinics in Texas to close will remain on hold — at least through next week — under an appeals court order Tuesday night.

After a federal trial court judge on Friday ruled that the requirements, due to go into effect on Sept. 1, were unconstitutional, state officials had asked the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to put the ruling on hold — allowing the law to go into effect — during the appeal.

Criticizing the trial court ruling, the state lawyers argued that the “judgment should be stayed immediately pending appeal.” This is so because, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott wrote, “[t]he State will suffer irreparable injury absent a stay because the district court’s injunction prevents the State from enforcing a duly enacted statute.”

The court, in an order signed by the clerk of the 5th Circuit for the court, declined to issue an immediate stay, instead ordering briefing on the matter over the course of the next week and scheduling oral arguments on the issue for September 12 in New Orleans.

The 5th Circuit went further, making clear that part of the reason for the delay of a ruling on the issue was the way the issue had been handled by the Texas Attorney General’s Office at the 5th Circuit.

Noting that the Attorney General’s Office had “alerted the Clerk of this court on Friday afternoon that the appellants would be filing a motion for stay pending appeal,” the clerk goes on to state for the court, “The appellants waited until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday August 31 to file the stay motion; a corrected version was sent at 12:08 a.m. on Monday September 1. This did not allow time for a response, or for the court adequately to consider the motion, before the scheduled effective date, though the appellants claim irreparable harm from the statute’s not being enforced. Moreover, the tardy motion was well in excess of the number of pages that are allowed.”

The court granted the state’s request that its filing be longer than allowed by the court’s rules, but otherwise held off on ruling on the stay itself, ordering the plaintiffs in the case to respond to the state’s stay request by 5 p.m. September 8 and a reply from the state officials by 5 p.m. September 10.

That was the question that one 40-year-old NHS psychotherapist answered by changing his own life in order to write a book that could change your life….





Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will not face charges because he was answering a work-related email.


I accidentally killed someone, you guys, but I was just doing research for an article I’m writing, so that makes it ok. That’s how it works, right?

Hated this shit like nobody’s business. They started this in high school and I just stared at my teachers and said I will just write down notes my way.

if I see another goddamn notification on my dash of a person reblogging this post and adding ‘I hated this’ or something along those lines, I will scrap my anti-prescriptivist views on learning, get into the politics game, become minister for education, and force Cornell notetaking to be part of the curriculum in all schools before flying to America and doing the equivalent there

I get it. It isn’t your learning style and that’s okay. But really, I spent time making a free resource and the least people could do is acknowledge that it might work for some people
