Finals Week in general.
Dark Matter Streams - It’s amazing … at the largest scales the universe resembles an enormous web, not unlike a neural network. Galaxy clusters are connected by long strands of dark matter.
Ralf Kähler, the person uploading these images, says of himself: “I work at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, where I manage the visualization facilities at KIPAC, the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology. I develop real-time 3D visualization techniques for large scientific datasets. My research interests include GPU-based direct volume rendering and vector field visualization methods for astrophysical simulation data. They are implemented as part of our interactive visualization framework that is used for data analysis as well as public outreach projects. Many of our visualizations have been featured on the covers of magazines, in TV productions and planetarium shows.”
In other words: yeah this is pretty legit, or as legit as current theory can make it. That’s so cool.
He took the name of a humble saint and then called for a church of healing. The first non-European pope in 1,200 years is poised to transform a place that measures change by the century.
- Don’t study in the library. During finals week, the library is the place where dreams go to die. Everyone in that space—and it will be crowded—is going to be either absolutely losing their mind or passed out face-first in a textbook, attempting to learn through osmosis. Some people like to…

If there is one thing I understand to be true of life and people, it is that we crave love. When it is present, how beautiful! And when it’s not, how tragic! Not being loved, or even not being shown love, can lead to all sorts of strivings to seek love somehow.
LOVE, people! Love the people around you! Don’t make them search in unhealthy places for something like love. Be a source of it for others. Be mindful to show love to others.
Seriously, if we are going to teach our children about health and fitness of our bodies, we need to teach them about healthy, fit relationships.
Let me tell you a fucking thing about costume design. That’s some in depth, difficult shit to learn. And the fact that this goddess can ramble this shit off the cuff means she knows her shit. ELLE WOODS IS A GODAMNED GENIUS AND IT’s NOT A STRETCH TO BELIEVE SHE GOT INTO HARVARD LAW MMMK?
FUCK YEAH ELLE WOODS OR DIE
this movie is literally about an attractive woman who loves to party having to prove over and over again that she’s also intelligent and hard-working to those who judge her based on her looks (who also empowers and fights for other women, and fosters unlikely friendships instead of engaging in girl hate) and if you don’t think that’s some great feminist shit then I don’t know what your problem is
Let’s not forget that in the end when the guy wants her again, she turns him down because she knows she deserves better.
Student will learn to do the following:
-forgive people for past wrongs
-forgive people for present/future wrongs
-remember the reason forgiveness can even happen (AKA: Jesus)
-maintaining a heart of forgiveness towards people
I found this here
First: Learn to start at the beginning. In English the speaker often puts what they feel to be most important first, no matter where it occurs in time.
"I went to the store after I ate breakfast and drank my coffee."
In ASL you start at the beginning.
» Breakfast eat. Coffee drink. Store go.
Second: Once again the English speaker puts what they feel to be the most important thing first and the next most important piece of information last and miscellaneous information in between. Speakers of English will tend to feel these really are the important things.
However it is interesting to note that every language differs on the things it (and its speakers) considers important. Ownership is very important in English and stressed at every opportunity while in Spanish you do not say “My arm” you say “The arm”. And there is at least one language native to the Americas where it is considered improper to use the word “I”. Thus you would say “This man,” or “This woman” and speak of yourself in the third person. In English speaking of yourself in the third person is considered immature.
ASL has its own priorities. In English you say,
"The wedding took place in a small church in Pittsburgh."
In ASL you start with the largest item and work down to the smallest.
» Pittsburgh small-church wedding finish.
Third: In English it is often difficult to figure out exactly what is being talked about. Often what the speaker thinks is the most important thing is not treated the same in ASL. English always tends to treat the person who does the action as though they are the most important element —
"She held the small white gloves close to her chest."
In ASL it is easy. It is the first thing talked about — It is the topic and it starts the sentence. The person being discussed is placed further down the chain of importance.
» Gloves, small, white, held-close-to-chest (one sign) she (If it is not already understood who is being talked about.)
Fourth: In English in order to construct a proper sentence you constantly have to refer to time (using tense, past, present, future) place, and person, in each sentence. English is one of the most repetitive languages in the world. It repeats information over and over again.
"He walked slowly down the hill. It was steep and he did not want to hurt himself. He carefully watched where he stepped."
In ASL once you establish time, for instance in the sentence above it is the past, it remains the same time (Say yesterday) until you change it.
You don’t need to keep using time indicator such as “ed” “was” “did”.
And the person you are talking about remains the same until you change them, and the place remains the same until you change it. Thus you don’t need to keep referring to “him, he, his”.
Nor do you have to refer back to the place, in this case the hill, with the pronoun “it”. It does not matter how long you talk about them or how many “sentences” you use.
“Hill he walk (show slow careful walking with the sign “walk”) Hurt want not. Use the sign “see” with both hands to show how he watched.
As you can see 7 signs and 1 head shake replace all the words in English, five of which are pronouns.
Fifth: Remember that you don’t have “I” this and “I” that in ASL. It is assumed you are talking about yourself unless or until you specify otherwise.
Other people may have other methods. These are the ones I always found most helpful.(DONT RE-POST IT SAYING IT’S YOUR’S IT’S NOT! This is to help all not to take advantage.)
