Kiribati rüstet sich für den Untergang

Die aus 32 Atollen bestehende Nation im Pazifik könnte als erstes Land der Welt als Folge des Klimawandels von der Erdoberfläche verschwinden. Prognosen zufolge dürften die meisten der über 3,5 Millionen Quadratkilometer verstreuten Inseln schon in 30 Jahren überschwemmt sein.

[…]

Im internationalen Vergleich ist das Land nur für minimale Klimagasemissionen verantwortlich.

Australien dagegen ist nicht nur der einflussreichste und reichste Nachbar in der Region, sondern pro Kopf auch noch der größte Emittent von Klimagasen auf der Welt. Trotzdem hat die australische Regierung schon mehrfach klargemacht, künftigen Klimaflüchtlingen aus dem Pazifikraum keinerlei Schutz gewähren zu wollen.

Fahrradfahren als Akt der Revolution

"Dass Steine geworfen werden, erleben wir jeden Tag", sagt Mariam Sediqi, die gemeinsam mit ihrem Onkel den afghanischen Radsportverband führt. Vor ein paar Jahren wurde sie beim Training von einem Motorradfahrer angefahren und verletzte sich die Schulter. Heute steigt sie nicht mehr in den Sattel, die Schmerzen sind zu groß, aber sie ermuntert die jüngeren Frauen.

Die Alizadas sind eine liberale Familie aus der Mittelschicht, die ihren beiden Töchtern das Fahrradfahren erlaubt. Aber sie verheimlichen es vor den Verwandten, speziell vor einem Onkel, der ein vehementer Gegner von Frauenrechten ist.

A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”

This goes for all you other countries out there. If a student is female, she should be allowed to wear the female uniform regardless of whether or not she was born male. Same goes for transgender male students - gender is not binary nor does it have to do with what you were physically born as. Gender is a spectrum, not a black and white thing that people have been assigning since they first evolved from apes.

So, all schools should be looking at this code of conduct and make these changes for transgender students, so they can wear the proper uniform of the gender they identify as.

(of course I know most schools here in the US and Canada don’t have uniforms but we’re not most of the schools in the world).

This should also apply for work uniforms too, if the uniforms are not unisex. Which reminds me, some schools do have unisex uniforms, but those are not common.

So, I was in the car today and saw someone with the license plate “X0DUS3 5”, so I thought it was like Exodus 3:5 and I looked it up, and do you know what it said?

"Do not come any closer."

Now that’s a well done biblical license plate.

Die Sendung mit der Maus erklärt Graffiti

18. September 2014 um 15:00 von Ronny

Man muss den Kinder ja früh die wichtigen Dinge des Lebens nahebringen. Die Maus weiß das schon länger und erklärt in dem Zuge Graffiti. Macht sie sogar recht gut.

Malin bekommt heute Tipps von einem echten Graffiti-Künstler: Er verrät ihr, wie sie mit Sprühdosen und ein paar Tricks Bilder an eine Wand malen kann. Für ihr Bild kommen vor allem die Farben Orange, Blau und Gelb zum Einsatz.

LOL man.

never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,

Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?

because white people have made sure that everything is about race

as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.

Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)

Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.

And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers

Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.

i have heard of precisely zero non-european explorers ever in my life, and that fucking sucks. this exhibit is amazing and i need to learn more.
