When you have a personal crisis,

alwaysabeautifullife:

and realize you have no one to call.

This is why I’m so glad I’m Catholic, I have friends in high places who are a prayer away (Saints).

And also all of you, you are all my friends and family.

Even when things are not good, God still is.

are they asking a genuine question or trying to pick a fight?

The brand-new FREE app from GoldieBlox is out now and it features an animated short that Lynn Wang & I directed!! You can check it out in the app store or at goldieblox.com. If you like it please do give it a rating or share it around, a bunch of good friends of ours put a ton of their time and effort into making it!
Lynn & I also want to give a shout out to Andrea Fernandez, Trevor Spencer, and Megan Lacera who were the creative directors of the whole thing. They worked their butts off and it definitely shows! And also a big thanks to Nick Keller for his awesome soundtrack he scored for the animation and Angelo Vilar for all his amazing backgrounds!
Check it out! The app turned out to be super cute and really fun, Lynn and I are really proud of everyone who worked on it. It also features the voice talents of Kari Byron (formerly of Mythbusters) and Emily Haines (of the band Metric)!

US colleges are paying their presidents like CEOs and treating students like customers, using their tuition to foot the bill.

It’s a broken system.

The rising student debt crisis…

Easy student loans mean students have unlimited money to pay colleges. Students having unlimited money mean colleges can continually raise prices.

And not be fiscally responsible with the money they take in.

After Janet Napolitano left the Obama administration, the University of California system hired her to be their president.

You know Napolitano is not working for peanuts. I mean, she was Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, fercryin’outloud. She’s not gonna leave The Gumment(tm) to work for the fun of it.

Just 1 example of how completely out of whack the system is.

The first child was unloved and was abandoned to abortion.

The second child came early and received all of the resources modern medicine could bring to bear.

The third child was just as loved as the second but arrived on schedule.

What is the difference, really, in these children’s individual value as human beings? Why should one have been killed while the others were welcomed by their families? Why should our right to live or die be decided by anyone else?

Stand Like This for 2 Minutes Per Day
from http://jamesclear.com/body-language-how-to-be-confident

No, for real, though—this is a thing.  Not sure about the science behind it, but it makes me feel fancy and powerful regardless.  I highly recommend it.

There actually is legit science behind this. In fact, here’s an entire TED Talk about the science behind it, and the confidence-related chemicals that your brain produces JUST BY YOU STANDING LIKE THIS.

This ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…

Guys. Science has developed a talking ring that allows the blind to read books.
This is not only amazing, it is the stuff of fairy tales.

"A moral obligation to be healthy"

or y’know…. so you don’t die; something most people try to avoid.

I support body positivity, but this woman’s logic is flawed. First off, unless they are thin to the point of emaciation, of course no one would ask that question because they give off the appearance of good health with respect to their weight. Also, you can tell if a person is physically healthy or not by looking at them. In her case, her larger figure could signify a problem with body chemistry or simply a lack of exercise and good dieting. While you can’t be sure what they have in all cases, physical appearance is an indicator of health. In addition, being healthy is a standard people should strive for because it is life-saving and cost-effective. While we shouldn’t try to be supermodels, we should strive to be as healthy as we can be.
