So you telling me that the U.S has completely cured the American doctor with Ebola in 26 days and he’s being released today. While Africa has been dealing with it since the 70’s and they are still looking for a cure.
Are we surprised?
… WHAT THE FUCK
It’s cool that y’all don’t understand how the experimental treatment for Ebola works, how it’s really only a recent development and not an actual cure, or how the law governs the use of such experimental treatments internationally or really medical ethics at all, but maybe try reading a thing or two before, you start outraging.
(Also, the WHO recently ruled the serum can be given compassionately internationally, so it is being sent to Africa in limited quantities… which, if you’ve read the above links, you’ll understand why it’s limited. Just FYI.)
#outrage without education is so useless
unfortunately countries like Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria don’t have the medical funds to even begin work on an experimental serum, its why most of the doctors who are in those regions right now are from places like Doctors Without Boarders and different missionary organizations. It’s a good thing WHO decided to release the serum compassionately, its the only way really it could have been treated, so of course the US/Canada were able to come up with an experimental serum, they have the means to do so.

I’m grossed out by the kind of stuff tumblr does to its users over an extended period of time
Grammar and punctuation is completely lost on some people, to the point where their posts are unreadable and irritating
And tumblr fosters and feeds this incredible narcissism and need to impress people- people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT DOWN
AND REPLACE IT WITH THE BULLSHIT ENDANGERED SPECIES MANAGEMENT SELF-DETERMINATION ACT
THAT ALLOWS STATES TO DECIDE IF THEY EVEN WANT TO ABIDE BY LAWS PROTECTING SPECIES AT ALL
AND DELISTS SPECIES AFTER ONLY FIVE YEARS
DOES ANYONE ELSE EVEN CARE
1 2 3 4 5
better question; how do we stop this?

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.
It is not a riot.
Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)
Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.
Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

How many drawings in a storyboarded sequence? Well, here’s one. Sequence, that is. At the end of “Lilo & Stitch,” we were cataloging and packing up our story drawings. We got to talking about how thick the piles were. Eventually someone suggested we take a picture of the drawings for one sequence. We used the floor of a large open meeting room in the Florida studio, and brought in a scissor lift as a platform for the photographer. Then we spread out the drawings. We were all surprised just how large an area they covered. Bela Temesvary shot the picture. Then he suggested I sit in the middle of them for posterity.
Now, if you’re still reading, bear in mind that this is not just one sequence from the film, but one VERSION of one sequence. Sharp-eyed observers will note that this is the obsolete chase sequence that featured a 747. That version was dropped after September 11. So this entire thing wasn’t used. Nor is this the first version of this sequence — I boarded it at least once before this. So this is probably version 2. I boarded it again from scratch at least one more time after this one was scrapped.
It’s important when talking about a traditionally animated film to clarify that these are not animation drawings, as some people have mistakenly assumed. I’m not an animator; I work in story. So these drawings were for story pitches and the story reel.
Most people board on Cintiq now, but I still do it on paper. It’s nice to have original drawings to sit on at the end.

“…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.””

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
This is real life. (x)
