Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

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.

Alan Turing was a mathematical genius who, along with a team during the early days of WW2, broke the Germans’ ‘unbreakable’ Enigma code, enabling the Allies ultimately to win the war. His designs and theories, moreover, set a generation of inventors on the road to the modern computer, pretty much creating life as we know it today. He was also gay.

The kicker was, even after Turing’s revolutioary work turned the tide of a WHOLE WORLD WAR, the British government persecuted him for being a homosexual—criminal at that time in the UK—and chemically castrated their own master code-breaker. Turning then killed himself and was only awarded a posthumous pardon from Great Britain LAST FUCKING YEAR. From the year of his conviction, 1952, until 2013, the man who practically single-handedly broke the Nazi’s codes and created the groundwork for today’s computers was a criminal.

So, what does the biopic show? LOTS and lots of well-costumed WW2-era Benedict Cumberbatch as the prickly, brilliant Turing, who’s just a bit different than his jolly colleagues—played by a who’s who of contemporary handsome British character actors, including Branson from Downton Abbey (Allen Leech) and Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance). Thankfully in this story of a famous and persecuted homosexual, Keira Knightley plays the OBVIOUS love-interest in this story with a tragic twist; however, that specific twist is BARELY MENTIONED AT ALL, except for queasy, vague allusions to Turing’s character having “secrets,” and, in a tortured voiceover, possibly “not fancying [Keira Knightley’s character] that way.”

That’s fucking awesome, y’all! There’s no way a queer audience would want the story of one of the few acknowledged heroes from our community who had a profound, hands-on effect on modern world history (meaning, that all of us aren’t now speaking German now because the Nazis lost) and then got truly and profoundly fucked over by his OWN government for the TRUTH of his queerness to ADDRESS that betrayal or even face the main character’s homosexuality WITH THE WORD.

Oh for fuck’s sake, really? They’re really going to leave out the GIANT TRAGEDY OF THE STORY OF ALAN TURING!?

Are we not living in 2014? Did we somehow travel back in time to a period when historical characters had to be closeted IN MOVIES ABOUT THEM?

On April 8, 2014, Philadelphia Zoo welcomed three new little ones to their home as a Black-footed Cat named Aza gave birth to an adorable litter of kittens. The first ever Black-footed Cats ever born at the zoo, the kittens— named Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion—are little, black-footed felines native to southern Africa.

Important.
