    The Body Shapes of the World’s Best Athletes Compared Side By Side

    Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.

    I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!

    This is why it should not be that difficult to have a superhero team where everyone has a recognizable silhouette without being in costume.

    "this is the internet, i can say whatever i want" is a super creepy and obvious way to say "when there are no obvious consequences for my actions i lack all empathy"

  5. Anonymous said: You do realise that it's possible to understand systemic and institutional racism, problems of overuse of police force in black neighborhoods (including racial profiling) and STILL think that in THIS SPECIFIC INSTANCE the violent incident had nothing to do with race?

    newwavefeminism:

    You don’t understand systemic racism if you can say the ferguson shooting has nothing to do about race. Ferguson is one of the top ten most segregated districts in the country and the police department, as I’ve already shared and you continuously ignore, has a history is racial profiling.

    You’re saying the same thing over and over and I keep providing facts - yet black people who talk about race are always labeled as “defensive” “irrational” and “inaccurate”

    What are you fighting for? The “it’s mean to call people racist” campaign?

    This is Duolingo, a language-learning website/app that deserves some serious recognition. It offers over 10 languages for English speakers, as well as courses for non-English speakers around the world, and they’re in the process of adding more. 

    But wait, I don’t want to do any more schoolwork! Not to worry little one, Duolingo is actually more like a game. You can compete with friends, and earn “lingots” (which are basically Duolingo money) to buy power-ups, extra activities, and bonus skills - like Flirting.

    I’m already taking a language, what do I need this for? 

    It’s not really a secret that most school language courses (in America, anyway) suck and only teach you to speak the language at about a third grader’s level. Which is why Duolingo is so freaking awesome.

    Teachers can’t give every student individualized attention, but Duolingo can. If you’re not learning the way you want to or as much as you want to in the classroom, Duolingo is a really great resource. It’s easy, tailored to you, and really effective.

    Duolingo tracks your progress and reminds you when you haven’t studied for a while or need a refresher on something. Already semi-fluent in a language? No problem, just take a shortcut to more advanced subjects or test out of the lesson. 

    The lessons start with the basics (he, she, hello, thank you, etc) and move up to harder stuff. Duolingo focuses on vocabulary first, so you can learn the language and then the grammar that goes with it - much simpler than the system most schools use. It also tracks the number of words you’ve learned and how well you know them.

    And you don’t even have to write out the flashcards!

    Duolingo is perfect for reviewing everything you forgot over the summer or giving you the extra help you need. And if you’re trying to learn a language on your own, it’s fantastic - you don’t have to create your own lessons. Whether you’re trying to learn your second, third, or fifth language, I seriously recommend Duolingo.

    Okay, what else?

    Duolingo also has discussion boards, where you can ask for help with a hard lesson, make new friends, watch for updates, and share your achievements.

    Even better is the Immersion feature. It won’t send you to Spain or France, but it’s pretty awesome. Duolingo takes real articles from the internet, which users translate. You can translate articles from your native language into the language you’re learning or vice versa, which gives you more experience and makes the Internet more universal.

    You can suggest new languages and track Duolingo’s progress in creating new courses. Bilinguals (older than 13) can help to create these courses. Duolingo has a long list of courses that can be contributed to, like Punjabi, Hebrew, and Vietnamese. Oh, and Dothraki, Klingon, Sindarin, and Esperanto.

    And the best part? IT’S COMPLETELY FREE. 

    If you love languages or just want to pass French class this year, USE DUOLINGO. Download the app and practice a language while you wait for the bus instead of playing Angry Birds!

    Coolest app I’ve ever downloaded.

    okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
