Lost Egyptian City Found Underwater After 1200 Years-Franck Goddio

1,200 years ago the ancient Egyptian city of Heracleion disappeared beneath the Mediterranean. Founded around 8th century BC, well before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, it is believed Heracleion served as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world.

Prior to its discovery in 2000 by archaeologist Franck Goddio and the IEASM (European Institute for Underwater Archaeology), no trace of Thonis-Heracleion had been found (the city was known to the Greeks as Thonis). Its name was almost razed from the memory of mankind, only preserved in ancient classic texts and rare inscriptions found on land by archaeologists.

90-year-old Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein arrested for peacefully protesting today in Ferguson. You can help get her and others out (@AwkwardDuck, @GeekNStereo, and some I’m less familiar with, Twitter-wise) by donating to #OperationHelpOrHush. They are not only raising money to bail out peaceful protesters, but they use all funds to help the community and bring them food, water, medical aid, gas masks, and other equipment to help them not die during this terrible time. Follow @SheSeauxSaditty for more info.



No seriously let me tell you about Hedy Epstein because she is one of my favourite people.
Her twitter is @hedyepstein but she hasn’t tweeted since the last time she tried to reach Gaza on a ship full of humanitarian aid in 2011 (aged 87).
She was transported out of German in England in 1938 to escape persecution at 14 and would never see her family again.
Not only is she a human rights activist, but she’s worked on abortion rights, anti-war, pro-Palestinian and for fair housing. She’s travelled all over the world, from Guatamala to Cambodia to work on this campaigns.

Living By Your Values

What’s this? A video two days in a row?! Madness!

Living in line with your values is not easy, but it’s important. It is not always dramatic either. You don’t need to fly across the world if you can treat the people around you with respect. 

this is a super good video from someone i’m proud to have met and befriended

i’m gonna be coming back to this again and again, i can tell

Oh no I’m not crying right now or everything.

I just have something in my eye. 

Emotions. There are emotions in my eyes.

Campaign to stop calling hateful transphobic bloggers TERFs (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists) and start calling them TEAs (Trans Exclusionary Assholes) because 

  1. These people are neither radical nor feminists
  2. They are all assholes
  3. They would be best in boiling water.

And which particular strand of feminist thought do you ascribe to that hasn’t been heavily influenced by Gloria Steinam, Andrea Dworkin and Germaine Greer?

Oh here we go. Literally these are exact three people that people who know feck all about feminism jump at straight away every single time.

Let’s put aside the fact that the youngest of these three women is dead and the other two were born in the 30s.

Were they influential in second wave, 70s and 80s feminism? Of course they were, they were saying wild, out-there things that no one had said before.

That is not the same thing as being accepted though. Some of their work is worth going over, some yeah not so much. And mostly they’ve been left by the intellectual wayside by anyone worth taking seriously.

But ideas that didn’t change in 40 years are not radical.

Frankly Judith Butler is more influential in academic feminism than any of those three.

Imagine Bucky meeting Rocket Racoon and the rest of the Guardians.

rocket is enthusiastically recounting the story of that time he “singlehandedly” busted peter, gamora, and draxx out of a “high-security prison” when he gets to the part about how peter actually believed he needed that guy’s prosthetic leg, when really, he just wanted to see him hopping around without it -

“excuse me?” clint pulls out one of his hearing aids and shakes it. “is my hearing aid malfunctioning, or did i really just hear actual fart noises coming out of your mouth?”

steve is on his feet and furious; to contrast him, bucky has one foot propped up on his other knee, the picture of casual except that his metal hand is clenching and unclenching into a fist, whirring audibly. natasha pops her bubblegum threateningly.

“i am groot,” groot says, nudging rocket, and rocket mutters, “shut up.”

“i’m no expert, but i’m pretty sure he means that making fun of disabled people isn’t fucking funny,” remarks bucky serenely.

rocket mumbles something inaudible.

“i’m sorry, what was that?” clint asks, rolling his hearing aid between his fingers. “you’re gonna have to say it louder.”

rocket rolls his eyes and then blurts out, “i’m sorry, okay!”

“great,” clint says. “now keep telling me how you’re never gonna do that again, and also how the hell you got out of a high security prison using only a battery and a guard’s id. i need to know.”
