Footage I got of being HARASSED by Lou Ann Zelenik and others after a court hearing. Islamaphobia is alive and well in this part of the U.S. I’ve never, ever experienced anything like this in my entire life. Please share this video. Spread awareness.
Notice how they treat her, the black cameraman, the people around them. Notice how they feel they are being put “in the back of the bus”. Notice the raging issue in this video. Stop pretending this is not real. Stop pretending this country is advanced enough to even fathom a future as a post-racial society.
DID SHE SERIOUSLY JUST SAY BACK OF THE BUS.
This thing looks like a huge thermos, and it is. By keeping rotavirus and pneumonia vaccines cold for 50 days, it saves kids’ lives. I saw it work perfectly in a rural health outpost with no running water or electricity, just an amazing health worker using technology suited to her needs.
There are coolers that keep sperm and eggs frozen for decades.
Yeah, but those coolers need electricity, something in very short supply in rural Ethiopia. (More than 60 million Ethiopians live outside or urban centers, and most of them—and most of the health centers that serve them—are without power or running water.) There are refrigerators that use propane or gas to keep cool, but propane can be expensive and difficult to keep in steady supply, so these ridiculously efficient Thermoses are (literally) a life-saver.
It’s difficult to overstate the poverty here: Most of the plowing of fields is done with wooden plows drawn by cattle, and there are almost no cars on the roads. (Most people travel by foot or on handmade carts drawn by animals). That Ethiopia has been able to reduce under-5 mortality from 25% to 8% in the past 20 years despite this poverty and a very rural population is a tremendous success story, and with effectively outfitted health posts, that percentage will get even lower—hopefully within the next decade Ethiopia’s child mortality rate will fall below the current world average of 5%.
Who’s ready for the first semester of library school? I am!
Here is another NerdFighter art! :) hope you like it! :) @johngreenwritesbooks @hankgreen #Nerdfighter #DFTBA #DontForgetToBeAwesome #Vlogbrothers #JohnGreen #HankGreen #Nerdfighteria
First complete (prototype) set of Cards Against Nerdfighteria. There are a lot of changes I’d like to make, but this seemed like a good stopping point for now. 75 question cards, 200 answer cards. Mostly nerdfighter related, though there are quite a few tangential ones.
COME TO THE NERDFIGHTER MEETUP AT LEAKYCON we’re gonna have a set and it’s gonna be awesome =D
