Given recent allegations that 3 military service members — all who are in charge of sexual assault programs — committed sexual assaults, Fox News has seriously underreported the topic. While MSNBC spent nearly 5 hours on it in the last 2 weeks, Fox News spent less than 19 minutes.
some of the greatest people i know are those who don’t broadcast their accomplishments or talk down on others. i need to be better.
you will be appreciated.
lord grant me strength
ugh sent my diffeq instructor a question about whether we actually have to draw the direction fields for our hw and then he sent a mass email saying “everyone you have to draw direction fields btw”
wow…im THAT kid
When astronomers refer to the temperature of a star, they are talking about the temperature of the gases in the photosphere, and they express those temperatures on the Kelvin temperature scale. On this scale, zero degrees Kelvin (written 0 K) is absolute zero (2273.2°C or 2459.7°F), the temperature at which an object contains no thermal energy that can be extracted. Water freezes at 273 K and boils at 373 K (at sea-level atmospheric pressure). The Kelvin temperature scale is useful in astronomy because it is based on absolute zero and consequently is related directly to the motion of the particles in an object.
Now you can understand why a hot object glows, or to put it another way, why a hot object emits photons, bundles of electromagnetic energy. The hotter an object is, the more motion there is among its particles. The agitated particles, including electrons, collide with each other, and when electrons accelerate—change their motion—part of the energy is carried away as electromagnetic radiation. The radiation emitted by a heated object is called black-body radiation, a name translated from a German term that refers to the way a perfectly opaque object would behave. A perfectly opaque object would be both a perfectly efficient absorber and a perfectly efficient emitter of radiation. At room temperature, such a perfect absorber and emitter would look black, but at higher temperatures it would glow at wavelengths visible to a human eye. That explains why in astronomy and physics contexts you will see the term black-body referring to objects that glow brightly.
Black-body radiation is quite common. In fact, it is responsible for the light emitted by an incandescent light bulb. Electricity flowing through the filament of the bulb heats it to high temperature, and it glows. You can also recognize the light emitted by hot lava as black-body radiation. Many objects in the sky, including the sun and other stars, primarily emit black-body radiation because they are mostly opaque.

For The Love Of Tea! – Health Benefits And Beyond
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.
From top to bottom:
Inara Runtule, 68, Kekava, Latvia. Silke (herring with potatoes and cottage cheese).
Grace Estibero, 82, Mumbai, India. Chicken vindaloo.
Susann Soresen, 81, Homer, Alaska. Moose steak.
Serette Charles, 63, Saint-Jean du Sud, Haiti. Lambi in creole sauce.
The photographer’s grandmother Marisa Batini, 80, Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy. Swiss chard and ricotta Ravioli with meat sauce.
Normita Sambu Arap, 65, Oltepessi (Masaai Mara), Kenya. Mboga and orgali (white corn polenta with vegetables and goat).
Julia Enaigua, 71, La Paz, Bolivia. Queso Humacha (vegetables and fresh cheese soup).
Fifi Makhmer, 62, Cairo, Egypt. Kuoshry (pasta, rice and legumes pie).
Isolina Perez De Vargas, 83, Mendoza, Argentina. Asado criollo (mixed meats barbecue).
Bisrat Melake, 60, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Enjera with curry and vegetables.
he should photograph my grandma
did you go to my high school? o_O
all i can say is find your niche and make sure to explore duke and its plethora of resources. and come with an open mind (diversity is a blessing)
and during o-week everyone just strikes up random conversations because everyone’s desperate for friends. pretty soon you’ll be bffs with someone lulz you can also pick out your roommate beforehand!!
so this is what life is,
a series of disappointments, successes, failures, accomplishments—love, love lost, love rekindled, and even love abandoned
Little things like overloading a semester,
challenging yourself, and learning to have faith in your own ability to rise to the occasion.
Bigger things like going back to something that’s already broken
to leave with the understanding and perspective that sometimes,
letting go is the most difficult and most painful, yet bravest thing to do.
And truly monumental things like growing enough to look at your family—your parents—as people
not as role models, breadwinners, nuisances, or the basis of whatever problems you may face,
but as people: jaded, broken, human beings trying just as hard as you to carry their faults, their mistakes along with the burden of your dreams and desires until their backs are so haunched from the weight of responsibility that they can only see the ground and how far they still have to go, instead of how far they’ve already come
to learn that with this understanding comes a sense of maturity and compassion that can’t be taught in any book or bedtime story.
so this is what it comes down to
learning to love and let someone in
only to realize when to let go
and learn to love yourself
