    Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
    If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

    Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

    Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
    No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

    (Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

    33 Pictures Taken At The Right Moment 

    We are huge fans of perfectly timed photos that capture perfect (and usually funny or unexpected) moments that come and go with a blink of the eye. The internet is abound with images shared by people who have captured images at just the right moment or from just the right perspective, so we wanted to share some more of them with you.

    John Conway first theorized that it would be impossible to create a forever-expanding universe using these rules, which was proven wrong by a team at MIT, creating the “glider gun,” which is featured in the third gif. 

    Since then, thanks to computers, people all over the world have added new designs to the database, creating amazingly complex designs.

    For example Andrew J. Wade created a design which replicates itself every 34 million generations! Furthermore it is also a spaceship (permanently moving pattern) and not only that, it was also the first spaceship that did not travel purely diagonally or horizontally/vertically! These types of spaceships are now appropriately named Knightships.

    The simulation has some interesting properties, for example it has a theoretical maximum speed information can travel. Or simply, light speed - as that is the limit in our own universe. The limit is set to 1 cell per generation - after all how can you create something further than 1 cell away in one generation if you can only effect your immediate neighbours? And yet you can get things like the ‘stargate’ (Love the name, huge SG fan here.) which allows a space ship to travel 11 cells in just 6 generations.

    Some smart people have even designed calculators, prime number generators and other incredibly complex patterns.

    You can create your own patterns here: http://www.bitstorm.org/gameoflife/

    The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.

    The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.

    Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:

    “I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”

    And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:

    “[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”

    Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:

    “To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”

    But Officer Thomas did have one request:

    “The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”

    And guess what? The story gets even better.

    After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.

    And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.

    She started crying when he told her:

    “There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”

    And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.

    Hedy Epstein, 90-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor, Arrested During Michael Brown Protest 

    Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor, was arrested on Monday during unrest over the death of Michael Brown,KMOV reports.

    Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest in downtown St. Louis, Missouri “for failing to disperse” during a protest of Governor Jay Nixon’s decision to call in National Guard into Ferguson. Eight others were also arrested.

    “I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety,” Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.”

    I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

    Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

    Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

    If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

    And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
