Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

There’s still very much this stereotype that teenage girls are not serious consumers of music, even though they are the number one purchasers of music. Teenage girls are the number one consumers of music, they are the number one drivers of taste, and yet they are still not considered serious music fans.

Sounds like Ben is Hardly Getting Over It.

If you’ve read “Our Band Could Be Your Life”, it’s sorta impressive that Wyatt was early enough on Husker Du to have some of those albums in near-mint, particularly given the bottleneck around “Zen Arcade”.

PS, I am imaging young Ben Wyatt blasting "Whatever" in an empty Ice Town and wondering how it all got so fucked so quickly and it’s sort of desolate and overpowering in that “AMC Cold Open” way.

Also let’s not forget the Lloyd Dobler look he’s sportin’. He could pop a boombox over his head and blast
(Into Your) Green Eyes

Jimmy, when I saw this part of the episode I thought of you.

Bees In Lavendar

I took these photos about a week ago on a beautiful, sunny day. Used a telephoto lens to capture the Bees sitting on the flowers. In full resolution photos you can see individual grains of pollen on their hairy legs!

I really loved that they Bees were yellow and contrasted sharply with the purple Lavendar, so I enhanced colours and lighting to make them pop against each other just a little bit more

So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

holy shit

ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading

Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.

for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:


this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit

Actually, the graph wasn’t created by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement—that’s just where the data came from.
The graph was created by Christine Chan, a graphics journalist for the Asian branch of news outlet Reuters. Here’s her explanation, from her Twitter account:

The link in the second tweet goes to a graph of the Iraq war’s death toll that uses the same inverted-y technique and with red coloring above the line, so that higher death tolls look like larger drips of blood. (This is very obvious because the linked graph is titled “Iraq’s bloody toll” and the lines are in more of a drip-like pattern. I would never have gotten the image of dripping blood from Chan’s graph.)
That linked graph is from the South China Morning Post, and Chan’s Twitter bio says she lives in Singapore. It’s possible that the inverted y axis is a more conventional way to visualize data in those countries. (Or maybe it’s not, I have no idea.) It’s even more possible she wasn’t completely aware of the political implications the graph would have in the US.
In any case, it looks like this is more an unfortunate coincidence than an intentionally misleading Fox News–style graph (which definitely do exist).

good extra info! when I first saw it I thought “blood drips”
