holy shit this makes sense
So according to Wookieepedia, Padmé and Anakin got married using the pseudonyms Veré and Set.
Set is an ancient Egyptian god associated with the desert, chaos, and war.
Veré recalls the Latin vere, meaning truly, and other related words in various Romance languages having to do with truth - not just in the factual sense of what is real, but in the moral sense of what is right as well.
Truth and Chaos getting married. Yeah, that sounds about right.
More details about Disney’s Moana
Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.
Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.
Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.
Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).
Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.
Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.
Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
Lions Save Kidnapped Girl
if lions are coming to rescue someone, you have to know what you’re doing is wrong. you know, in that moment before you’re torn in to tiny little pieces by said lions
apparently its been proven that animals will react to the cries of children regardless of what child it is. like wolves will react to human baby cries and even deer will react to human baby cries. they’ll try to find the child to help it. its some motherly instinct thing that all mammals share or something like that.
im not sure where i heard this but i think it was from psychology book my friend was reading.
There was one little boy who fell into the gorilla pen at a zoo and he just laid there and cried and this HUGE alpha male gorilla (or whatever the dominant gorilla is called) went over and actually stood watch over the little boy to make sure none of the other gorillas attacked him.
It has to be a mammal (deer won’t react to baby birds, for example) but yes this is true ^^
so basically it’s the same reaction we get when we see baby mammals
Hi. This is very difficult for me to talk about, but I think I’m ready!! Ok! As most of my followers know, I’m Karen! I’m an artist from Northern California and I’m here to talk about my dad! I normally don’t like to talk about my personal problems in public but my dad needs help!
My dad, José, was born in México and he came to the U.S. in the mid/late 80s. He, along with my mom, raised three girls: my sisters Grace, Mariseli, and me! My dad has always been a very great dad! Because my mom worked in the evenings when we were younger, he’d take care of us, feed us, play games with us, and let us watch movies all the time. When my dad bought a camcorder for the first time, he recorded a lot of fun memories of his children. We have so many home movies of us watching Jurassic Park 2, singing along to the opening theme of Ranma ½, and running through the sprinklers of our backyard. We’d watch soccer games with him and cheer for his favorite Mexican soccer team, Club America. It was my dad who taught me how to color! He even built us a backyard playground, complete with swings, ladders, a two-story mini playhouse, and a slide! I had a really fun and memorable childhood and I’m sure my sisters would agree.
In the previous months, both sides of my family have been going through extremely painful and emotional experiences and this has affected my dad very deeply, to the point of depression.
My dad is self-employed and does business as a lawn-care maintenance/gardener/etc. He’s been working the same job for as long as he’s been in the U.S. He used to work almost every day of the week, including Saturdays, and he rarely took a day off. Now, he’s been getting less and less business and works maybe three times a week for a few hours. It’s hard for him to get up in the mornings and it’s getting harder for him to go to work. He sleeps long hours as soon as he comes home, he won’t eat and he doesn’t laugh anymore. At first, my sisters just brushed it off because we assumed he was still working full time. It turns out he would leave and pretend he had work every day. We had no idea what was going on with our family so we ignoring everything. This made him even more depressed and now he rarely talks to us. Now that I know what’s really going on, I feel incredibly guilty and sad.
My dad is very stubborn (as most dads usually are) and he is in denial about his depression. Also, because he’s been getting less income, he’s been relying on his credit cards to make payments on even the smallest things and he doesn’t want to ask for money/help anymore. My dad is in debt because of this. Even though my sisters and I have jobs, we can’t afford to pull him out of this debt because we are taking care of my parents’ house and helping my mom with bills and other miscellaneous things. We can’t magically fix my dad’s depression, but alleviating my dad’s debt is one way to remove some stress. My sisters and I are currently trying to get help for his depression and even though he says he’s okay, he isn’t. I don’t know if my dad will ever be the same but I want him to know that we are here for him. Depression isn’t something that people can get over in a day and we have no idea what my dad is going through, emotionally or physically, but we want to help him.
I want to help him in any way I can because I love him and he’s the best dad in the world. My dad has no idea I’m doing this, so I hope we can reach the goal and bring him some relief.
Thank you so much for reading! Any signal boosting is greatly appreciated!!!!!
Inside a Changing Autumn Leaf
One of the great wonders of life is watching the leaves change colors in the fall. When temperatures get cool, chlorophyll begins to break down revealing the underlying pigments in the plants’ sap. This depiction of the inner-workings of a maple leaf shows the process in action.
