What I’ve been upto. Gave a go at sewing some leggings for my girls. Sewing not exactly my strong side, but they turned out ok! After quite a few trail & error that is.
Some fun color ones, shiny ones & galaxy leggings! I havent decided if I will be selling these in my shop or giving them away as gift for my buyers yet.
Track:"Good Cop Compilation"
Capote, who comes from Cuba, visited a clinic in Havana to make molds of teeth from several anonymous people. He then reproduced the teeth in bronze and conjoined the molds in a linear fashion. The bronze teeth bear the weight of each 500 pound concrete block.
The sculpture symbolically uses the notion of gravity, material and its weight to create the sculpture and the idea of burden; it also examines the meaning of teeth as an important part of the body used to establish identification or the identity of a person.
for my digital media class i need to make a piece of “internet art” which is basically anything hosted on the internet that allows interaction between human users and the interface
it could be LITERALLY ANYTHING, SO i need you guys to help me making this happen
i want to present you all to “DRAW ME THE SQUART GUY”
basically it will be a collection of people attempting to draw the squart guy (specifications are more detailed in the faq)
to be clear no you don’t need to know how to draw nor make it fancy, it can be on photoshop or mspaint or even the back of your notebook when you’re bored in class
honestly quality can vary from realistic to very stylized to 20 second mspaint doodles like this
in fact the more variety the better!, so yeah TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND TELL YOUR BROTHER AND IF HE DOESN’T WANT THEN TELL YOUR OTHER BROTHER
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS IS IN ONE WEEK SO IN ONE WEEK I HAVE TO GATHER AS MANY DOODLES AS POSSIBLE
if you have something then submit it and MAKE SURE YOU READ THE FAQ
and if you’re not planning on participating then at least REBLOG THIS AND SPREAD IT OR SOMETHING
They don’t, and that’s not an opinion, that’s a fact.
The dude who promoted that shitty claim has since lost his medical accreditation. Since then not a single study has found any correlation between vaccines and higher autism rates.
OK, everyone keeps talking about Dr Wakefield losing his medical accreditation (that is, he was struck off the register in the UK which is the equivalent to losing your license in the US - it is illegal for him to practice medicine in the United Kingdom now), but they don’t really go into detail about why. The Wikipedia article has an enormous wealth of knowledge and I would recommend reading it to get a proper overview, but here’s the TL;DR:
Andrew Wakefield (and colleagues) took 12 autistic children, 8 of whom presented with “behavioural symptoms” after being given the MMR vaccination, the onset of these symptoms reportedly occurring within 2 weeks of the vaccination.
Now, already a scientist reading this is probably scoffing at the statistical irrelevance of such a study - but note that Wakefield fully admitted that no link had been proven. He simply wished to use the study to block the triple vaccine until further research could be conducted - sounds pretty noble, right?
But the issue is his motivation. He wanted to give his patients three separate single-virus injections over the course of three years, instead of administering a single triple-virus injection in one shot. He manufactured his “research” in order to stir up controversy surrounding the triple shot virus, so that it would be blocked and he could go back to what he was familiar with (which was by this point deprecated due to obsolescence).
A bias of this magnitude was enough for his hospital to ask him to leave, which he said was because his results were “unpopular”, but the fact of the matter was that there was an undeclared conflict of interest in the results.
So far, we’ve got some guy who’s trying to push an agenda and is being a bit of a dick about it, and lost his job over it. Pretty bad, but not exactly the next Stalin. It gets worse.
The 12 kids from the study were subjected to invasive medical procedures - a colonoscopy and a lumbar puncture (the latter of which is an excruciatingly painful injection into the spine with an enormous needle, as anybody who’s watched House will tell you) each.
It gets worse.
He was in the process of applying for a patent for the single-virus Measles injection before his campaign against the MMR injection began.
He unsuccessfully sued for libel when Channel 4 brought this all to light, along with allegations of a third-party paying Wakefield over £400,000 to build a case against the MMR vaccine, which may or may not also be true.
Nobody has been able to reproduce his results in the 16 years since all this began.
Many people have conducted much larger studies and found no link whatsoever between autism and the MMR vaccination.
The stupidest thing about the entire debacle is that Wakefield was fucking pro-vax and probably still is to this day. He just wanted people to use his (patented) vaccine instead of the MMR triple vaccine which was vastly superior, so he invented a problem with the MMR vaccine in order to put people off it, inadvertently putting people off not just the MMR vaccine but also other vaccines that are entirely unrelated to the MMR vaccine. There’s a sort of sad irony in that, I think.
Yep, all of this. In case any of you were interested on what exactly went down in the Wakefield case…. this is the whole shitty package.
There it is. And now children (and adults) are DYING because of this bastard’s greed and recklessness.
I struggle to find words to convey the badness of both the situation and the man. Truly it’s an awful thing when a medical professional goes rogue.
Hi I am a 19 trans girl needing a warm place to crash i can help with food with my food stamps and i hope that, that can be a method for paying for rent. I have been staying at a salvation army shelter in downtown and i have wanted to hurt my self there cause they force me to be my natial gender and its driving me crazy.

We received an update on this situation today. Chelsea has been kicked out of her Salvation Army shelter and is now living on the streets of Colorado Springs.
In addition to the various dangers that a young trans woman faces when living on the street, the temperature is supposed to drop to 39 degrees tonight in Colorado Springs. Tomorrow night, it is supposed to drop to 20.
Please help Chelsea if you can and signal boost this if you cannot.
