BBC News - Turkey rallies over murder of woman who 'resisted rape'

"Thousands of women in Turkey have protested at the murder of a young woman who allegedly resisted an attempt by a bus driver to rape her. Police discovered the burnt body of Ozgecan Aslan, 20, in a riverbed in the city of Mersin, on Friday. They have arrested three men in connection with her death - a minibus driver, his father and a friend. The Turkish president and prime minister called Ms Aslan's family to offer their condolences. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu promised the family to hunt those responsible for the crime and punish them. Ms Aslan, a psychology student, was kidnapped on Wednesday on her way home. The driver allegedly tried to rape her. She reportedly fought him off with pepper spray, but was then stabbed to death. She was also hit on the head with an iron pipe. The brutality of the murder caused an outcry across Turkey. Thousands of women staged protests in several cities on Saturday, including Ankara, Istanbul, and Mersin - Ms Aslan's hometown in southern Turkey.... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

"Popular culture has had issues with women for, oh, several thousand years or more. So, we're not exactly blowing everyone's minds by pointing out that even to this day, women tend to get depicted as trophies or sex toys for the (male) hero. But, comics really do inhabit their own category here -- if not in the storylines, then just in the frankly ludicrous way females are drawn. It's not only a matter of relying on unrealistic body standards, but doing it to a degree that we're not sure these characters could even survive. We're talking about things like ... #5. Breasts as Alien Organisms DC Comics We don't want to perpetuate the hateful stereotype that everyone who enjoys or works with comics is a virgin.

since I couldn't make this shit up if I tried, I have to share it. remember last weekend when I had the two different dates? well, both were nice... I had a lovely time, laughed a lot, etc. thing is, on both occasions I bumped into someone I'm super attracted to, but whom is unavailable (because the Universe is cruel), and that kinda deflated...
the experience for me both times. a girl cannot catch a break. but wait! there's more... both guys decide to show up at the weekly happy hour I go to for work Wednesday night. not kidding. and both see me and approach me at the same time, so there was THE most precious awkward "who's talking to who" moment of me trying to say "hi" and make intros and be cool about it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

No matter how awkward it may have felt for you, it's a good test for the 2 of them, for you to see how they react to it. If either of them were to freak out or never want to see you again because you didn't jump into an exclusive relationship with them after a first date, then good riddance to them. It's nice to know about unreasonable expectations like that, early on, so you can avoid the problems that those kind of control freaks always seem to cause, later on. - April Russo

US faces worst droughts in 1,000 years, predict scientists | Environment | The Guardian
"The US south-west and the Great Plains will face decade-long droughts far worse than any experienced over the last 1,000 years because of climate change, researchers said on Thursday. The coming drought age – caused by higher temperatures under climate change – will make it nearly impossible to carry on with current life-as-normal conditions across a vast swathe of the country. The droughts will be far worse than the one in California – or those seen in ancient times, such as the calamity that led to the decline of the Anasazi civilizations in the 13th century, the researchers said. “The 21st-century projections make the [previous] mega-droughts seem like quaint walks through the garden of Eden,” said Jason Smerdon, a co-author and climate scientist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Researchers have long known that the south-west and Great Plains will dry out over the second half of the 21st century because of rising temperatures under climate change.

Montana lawmaker says yoga pants should be illegal | KOMO News -
"A Montana legislative panel moved to kill an indecent exposure bill Wednesday after the lawmaker who introduced it said he thinks yoga pants should be illegal. Members of the House Judiciary Committee voted unanimously to table House Bill 365, which Rep. David Moore introduced Tuesday. The proposal would have expanded the definition of indecent exposure to include garments that give the appearance of a person's buttocks, genitals, pelvis or female nipple. The Republican from Missoula said he wouldn't have a problem with people being arrested for wearing such provocative clothing such as tight-fitting beige garments. Moore also said yoga pants should be illegal. Although members of the committee giggled about the bill, no discussion was allowed before a voice vote to table it." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Pope Francis: the choice to not have children is selfish
"Pope Francis has chided couples who choose not to have children , saying the decision was a “selfish” act. The statement, which he made in his general audience in St Peter’s Square, will be seen as especially controversial in Italy, which has recorded a steady drop in its birth rate for decades. “A society with a greedy generation, that doesn’t want to surround itself with children, that considers them above all worrisome, a weight, a risk, is a depressed society,” the pope said." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Dear Pope, you don't have any children yourself, f' off. - Steve C, Team Marina
Lemme have a talk with him. I wouldn't make a good parent and I can't afford (financially) to be a good parent.

The Energy of Life | The Scientist Magazine®
"Energy is the currency of biology. By harvesting electrons from a stunning range of starting materials, Earth’s organisms produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which powers biological reactions. In the case of mammals and most eukaryotes, sugars and other organic molecules are common electron sources, the oxidation of which drives ATP production. Bacteria and archaea can use a range of other chemicals, from sulfide to iron to ammonium. Cells take up these electron-rich molecules and capture their electrons, which jump down an electron transport chain in the mitochondrial or cell membrane. As electrons move along the membrane toward a final electron acceptor, protons are pumped from the cell’s interior to the exterior, setting up a chemical gradient. Finally, protons stream back into the cell, releasing the chemical pressure and generating ATP. With each energy-requiring reaction, from flagella construction to cell division and growth, cells draw upon their ATP bank. The wide variety... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Sounds familiar:
"The Kharijis who had repudiated ʿAli after the battle of Siffin formed small bands, usually of between thirty and a hundred men. Each group was at once an outlaw gang and a fanatical religious sect. They were held together by the conviction that they were the only true Muslims and that their rebellions had profound religious justification. A group of Kharijis (called Najda) controlled a good part of Arabia – including Bahrain, Oman, Hadhramaut, and Yemen – before they were finally crushed. These Khariji bands were most likely formed by uprooted individuals looking for communal affiliation through sectarian movements. The second civil war, then, was a crisis for the cohesion of the Arab-Muslim elite, for its political authority, and for its concepts of true belief and communal leadership." - Eivind

downside of avoiding phone calls from your parents: when they're the harbinger of surprise visits. my dad is on his way here today after he drops my baby sister off at the train station in Jax. probably get here around 10pm. I have NO IDEA why the sudden urgent visit. needless to say, do not like.

"Phil Rawlins admitted Orlando City’s officials and players were “blown away” by a near 7,000-strong fan turnout for the MLS expansion club’s first open practice on Saturday night. Days after the Lions president targeted a season-opening crowd more than seven times that size, Rawlins led the formal introduction at the Citrus Bowl, the team’s 2015 home as work continues on their soccer-specific stadium downtown, which replicated a game-day experience with tailgating, concession stands and the obligatory autograph sessions. In all, the evening lasted three hours as City conducted a 75-minute training session then opened up the field to season-ticket holders, with all the players – led by Brazilian star Kaka – returning to meet fans and sign autographs." - Jennifer Dittrich from Bookmarklet
"Kaka set the tone by staying twice as long as the allocated 45 minutes for the meet-and-greet portion of the event, signing autographs for the purple-clad masses. “It has been amazing to see and we’re all pretty blown away by it,” Rawlins said. “We know we have some passionate supporters, and we wanted to make this first practice session an event, but I think even we’ve been a bit... more... - Jennifer Dittrich
