ok. let's try to balance this initial dread and terror reaction with some helpful reminders, shall we?
I remain employed with full benefits through October 1st. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have access to enough money to cover 2 month's salary. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'm a long-time member of a professional association that has a job bank and gives me access to a wide network. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I needed to update my resume anyhow. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Good positioning. Now all energy to that new job! - Eric
The volunteer work and professional networking I started this year has exposed me to opportunities here in Athens I didn't know existed. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
every so often it's helpful to find out who your real friends are, and this will be one of those times. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have an amazing support network of friends that have helped me through bad times in the past, so I have the moral support I'll need to make some tough decisions (provided I ask for it; that's on me). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have a Master's degree and a broad range of fairly marketable skills. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I paid off 2 credit cards so that chunk of cheddar can go elsewhere. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
job hunting expenses are tax deductible (ok, that one's a little lame, but whatever). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
and you're cute as hell - MoTO: Team Marina
ha, B. thanks for the chuckle. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
since I finally got my taxes filed, some money will come back from the Fed even after paying what I owe the state and the tax preparer. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I was on a roll for awhile keeping a reasonable expense budget, then I blew it with beering and dining, and now I can get back on it for better overall regardless. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I've wanted/needed to get my 401k and IRA and other random accounts I've accumulated over the years organized for awhile and kept putting it off (b/c ugh) but now would be a good time to get my money house in order in general. I asked the tax guy about it and got a recommendation, so I have someone to call to help me get started sooner rather than later. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
my therapist will help me through this and will likely run a tab for me if I'm unable to pay for awhile as she's done in the past. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'll be 40 in March. I am a grown-ass woman. I can handle my business. Not wanting to deal and not being able to deal are two very different things. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Looks as if there are a few training-type openings at Maritz - I figured there would be, if you want to live in St. Louis. Are you a cat person? - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Thanks Mary. I'll take a look. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

USC starting CB Josh Shaw injures both ankles saving nephew from pool | FOX Sports - http://www.foxsports.com/college...
"Shaw looked on from a second floor balcony to the pool below and saw his 7-year-old nephew, who cannot swim, in distress without help nearby. Shaw instinctively leaped off the balcony, landing painfully on the concrete below. He was able to crawl into the pool and ushered his nephew to safety. Despite the intense pain in his legs, he was then able to grab the ladder and lift himself out of the pool with his upper body. Shaw's nephew Carter is a bit "traumatized," but physically okay. Shaw was taken to the hospital and subsequently diagnosed with two high ankle sprains, which will sideline him indefinitely.""I would do it again for whatever kid it was, it did not have to be my nephew," Shaw said today. "My ankles really hurt, but I am lucky to be surrounded by the best trainers and doctors in the world. I am taking my rehab one day at a time, and I hope to be back on the field as soon as possible." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Taipei politician brings giant Trojan horse adorned with Chinese flag into legislative council
"In this instance, of course, the horse is Chinese economic interests in Taiwan, which some believe will serve as a vehicle for the manipulation of local politics, buying out the democratic Republic of China rather than bombing it out. There wasn't any adultery, wife-stealing, anyone named Helen involved or any soldiers breaking out of the blow-up statue, which proved to be a bit anti-climatic, but we think he got his point across." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Report: Panda may have faked pregnancy for more food - CNN.com
"A giant panda slated to be the star of the first-ever live broadcast of the birth of panda cubs has lost the role -- after it was discovered the bear is not pregnant after all, Chinese state media reported. Not only was it a phantom pregnancy, but zookeepers suspect the panda, Ai Hin, may have been faking it to improve her quality of life, the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding told Xinhua on Monday. Ai Hin, age 6, had shown signs of pregnancy, including a change in appetite, moving less and an increase in progestational hormone in July, according to Xinhua. But after almost two months, she began acting normally again, zookeepers said. Experts say pandas sometimes carry on the behaviors associated with early pregnancy after noticing that they get preferential treatment, the news agency reported." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Black Ballerina: A Documentary Film from Shirley Road Productions
Show all
"BLACK BALLERINA, a feature length documentary-in-progress, is a story of passion, opportunity, heartbreak and triumph of the human spirit. Set in the overwhelmingly white world of classical dance, it tells the stories of several black women from different generations who fell in love with ballet. Six decades ago, while pursuing their dreams of careers in classical dance, Joan Myers Brown, Delores Browne and Raven Wilkinson confronted racism, exclusion and unequal opportunity. In 2014, three young black women also pursue careers as ballerinas. Do they find that the color of ballet has changed? If so, how? If not, why? BLACK BALLERINA uses the ethereal world of ballet to engage viewers in a subject that reaches far outside the art world and compels viewers to think about larger issues of exclusion, equal opportunity and change." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
There was a blurb about this in Dance Magazine this month. It's scheduled to come out next summer but the trailer's out now. :D - Jessie
First Position covered some of the race issues in ballet, like the parents of the girl from Sierra Leone having to hand-dye parts of her costume because the "flesh-tone" straps only come in one color, but the film really didn't go into it much. Looks like this one will be a little more in-depth, which is great. - Jessie

Producer in Beverly Hills for Emmy Pre-Party Mistaken for Bank Robber, Held 6 Hours | KTLA
"A film producer who was in Beverly Hills to attend a pre-Emmy party Friday night was handcuffed and detained for about six hours before authorities investigating a nearby bank robbery realized they had the wrong man. Charles Belk, who was handcuffed after mistakenly being taken for a bank robber, is seen in this photo posted to Facebook. Charles Belk stated on Facebook that he left a restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard and was walking alone to his car parked on La Cienega Boulevard at about 5:20 p.m. to check the parking meter when he was suddenly surrounded by police and told to sit on the curb. A picture posted with the statement on Facebook showed Belk, who is credited as a producer and actor on his IMDb page, in handcuffs as he sat on the sidewalk with two officers nearby. “I get that the Beverly Hills Police Department didn’t know that I was a well educated American citizen that had received a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, an MBA from... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Construction error leads to squiggly lanes on highway - CNN.com
"Read between the lines -- but be careful if those lines are on a Virginia highway. Temporary striping tape installed on Interstate 66 peeled off on Monday, creating spaghetti-shaped dividers that caused lengthy delays for those on their morning commute, according to CNN affiliate WUSA. At some points trucks were bigger than the lanes themselves. The Virginia Department of Transportation said in a press release that it is fixing the lanes and apologized to drivers for the confusion. The markings were installed on August 15. A local reporter said there was a "nasty" accident near the lanes, though it's not clear if the confusion caused by the lanes played a factor. Two lanes and a shoulder will be closed overnight Monday to fix the issue. No word on whether they'll "think outside the box" to make sure this doesn't happen again." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Butterfly wings lift Greater Taichung students to victory - Taipei Times
"Two juniors from Taichung Municipal Hui-wen High School recently claimed the top prize at this year’s Shizuoka Kita Youth Science Engineering Forum after unlocking the secret to why Japanese white butterflies (Pieris rapae crucivora) dominate the white butterfly (Pieris canidia) population in Taiwan. Yuan Li-yun (袁笠芸) and Hsiao Pei-wan (蕭佩宛) said that the Japanese white butterflies account for up to 90 percent of the nation’s white butterfly population." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"To determine why, the girls captured more than 100 white butterflies and put female Japanese and Taiwanese butterflies in separate ziplock bags to block the scent of insects’ pheromones. Even without being able to scent the females, the male Japanese butterflies were still drawn to the Japanese females, which prompted the pair to infer that the males rely mainly on vision, not scent,... more... - Jessie

Holocaust survivors and their descendants accuse Israel of ‘genocide’ - http://www.independent.co.uk/news...
Dozens of Holocaust survivors, together with hundreds of descendants of Holocaust survivors and victims, have accused Israel of “genocide” for the deaths of more than 2,000 Palestinians in Gaza since the conflict erupted in July. - Halil from Bookmarklet
“Genocide begins with the silence of the world,” the statement reads, “We must raise our collective voices and use our collective power to bring about an end to all forms of racism, including the ongoing genocide of Palestinian people.” The statement also condemns the United States for its financial and diplomatic support of Israel. - Halil
Total silence to this post then I see, I was half expecting to see some comments, I've been wanting to use the word genocide for a while now but I didn't as it's a loaded word so I'm glad, albeit extremely sick to the stomach, that the word has finally been used and of all people, it's former holocaust victims that have accused Israel of it, good on them, it's a very brave and bold thing for them to do and I admire them for their courage to speak our against Israel. - Halil
I don't see a reason to shy away from a word when it describes exactly what is happening and has been happening for decades. - Anika
