Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead
Do not test Reza Aslan.
We must train and retain our ability to listen and process critically.
Nobody told me that @RezaAslan knew how to read.
(Not read as in books, but read as in reveal your scalp to the world.)
Because homie read Bill Maher, Don Lemon, Alisyn Camerota, Benjamin Netanyahu, and just about everyone else for points.
Hair all over the damn floor like it was a barbershop and nobody had a broom.
He got ALL his kee-kee’s in.

muji spice book
Traveling with your spice rack is not ideal. This is why Japanese company, Muji, has made a book of spices to make flavoring your food while away from home a little bit easier.
This book from Muji is full of pages that are made of spiced paper, which dissolve from the heat and moisture of cooking. Now that kick of white pepper or red chili is just a tear away. And, since it is compact and perfectly portable, the Muji spice book is ideal for when you’re traveling!
A simple four page story made for an anthology as a promotional piece for Plymouth University. They’re all stories about early days at Plymouth Uni written and illustrated by current or graduated students. Mine is about when I wanted a doorstop. Litho printed in two colours.

Where boys fear to tread.
this is the best thing I’ve seen on tumblr in a very long time.
Once again, the best thing I’ve seen on tumblr in a very long time
Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions. Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.
In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:
“The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.”
In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts.PBS: Language as Prejudice - Myth #6: Women Talk Too Much (via misandry-mermaid)
