Tom Friedman's Take on the Shutdown

President Obama is leading. He is protecting the very rules that are the foundation of any healthy democracy. He is leading by not giving in to this blackmail, because if he did he would undermine the principle of majority rule that is the bedrock of our democracy.

Climate Change
Global warming is the present increase in temperature of the planet's surface (both water and land ) and it is atmosphere. Average temperatures across the globe have climbed by 0.75°C (1.4°F) within the previous 100 years roughly two thirds of the growth has happened since 1975. 1 two previously, when the Earth underwent gains in temperatures it had been the result of natural causes but now it's being caused by the accumulation of greenhouse gases from the air made by human actions. The greenhouse effect keeps the planet's temperature in a safe level which makes it possible for people and several other lifeforms to exist. 4 however, as the Industrial Revolution human actions have significantly improved the greenhouse effect causing the planet's average temperatures to rise from nearly 1°C. To put this growth in perspective it's crucial to comprehend that during the previous ice age, a period of climate change, the typical temperature change across the world was just approximately 5°C. The reason for global warming is that the rising number of greenhouse gases from the our air made by human actions, such as the burning of fossil fuels or even deforestation. These actions produce considerable quantities of greenhouse gas emissions that is causing global warming. 3 it's a natural process and also with no gases, the Earth will be too cold for people, plants and other animals to live. The natural greenhouse effect exists as a result of equilibrium of the more important kinds of greenhouse gases. But when abnormally substantial levels of these pollutants collect in the atmosphere, more warmth begins getting trapped and contributes to the improvement of the greenhouse effect. ------------------------------ for more visit here: - Tempo Machico Radar Aereo
What Is Erectile Dysfunction? Is There A Quick Solution For It!
What is erectile dysfunction (ED)? Is there a quick solution for it! ED is also known as male s e x u a l impotence and it can be medically defined as: “The inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have s e x u a l intercourse. It's sometimes referred to as impotence, although this term is now used less often. Occasional ED isn't uncommon. Frequent ED, however, can be a sign of health problems that need treatment.” Still Not Sure As To What Is Erectile Dysfunction? Erectile dysfunction is when: •You find it as good as impossible to get a hardon. •If by some stroke of luck you do get a hardon, you would not be able to keep it long enough for you to have s e x. The hardon you get (If you get one!), is too limp for you to have s e x. The Consequences of Having Erectile Dysfunction If you suffer from weakness of man in bed (ED), you will find that besides the fact that you would not be able to have s e x, you would be faced with all kinds of other issues such as: 1. Serious Relationship Issues: You would have loads and loads of relationship issues with your partner. As you would not be able to have s e x with your partner, your partner may feel that you are disinterested in her because she is no longer attractive to you physically. She may also feel that you do not want to have s e x with her, as you are having an affair with another person and having s e x with that person. 2. Anxiety: Anxiety would be a part of your persona, as a result of you not being able to have s e x. You would start to feel anxiety, for any and no reason at all. And, whenever it was time to go to bed, you would start to suffer from anxiety attacks, as you would not be able to have s e x with your partner. And if you have not told your partner that you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, your partner may want to have s e x. And when you do not have s e x, your partner would start to wonder what the matter is. And thus, your anxiety would start to reach new levels of high. 3. Low Self Esteem: You would not be in a very good place, with how you feel about yourself. All the time, you would feel lost and gloomy and wonder what is happening in your life and what future there is for you. You would start to feel very bad about yourself and have all kinds of negative feelings about yourself. At all times, you would feel awkward and that you are not loved. In such a sate, it would also be possible for others to hurt you very easily. Even when you are working, you would feel that you are incompetent and unable to do your job. 4. Mood Swings: All the time, you would have mood swings. These would happen anytime and anywhere. You would feel so suffocated by the fact that you cannot have s e x, your mood could change and become ugly, in an instant, with no warning. This would prove to be extremely bad for the people around you, as you can get abusive and even resort to attacking them. 5. Divorce: Your partner may not be understanding enough, after you have told her that you are suffering from impotence in men and she may leave you for another man, as she may desire to have s e x – and you are unable to give that to her! On the other hand, you may choose to hide the fact from your partner, that you are suffering from erectile dysfunction and this may result in your partner wondering what is wrong with you and why you do not wish have s e x with her. For some time, she may tolerate it, but then she may probe you and if you still refuse to tell her that you are s e x u a l l y impotent, she can form all kinds of conclusions about why you do not want to have s e x with her. Including, that you are interested in someone else. This could cause your partner to divorce you. 6. Unable to Get Your Partner Pregnant: Because you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, you would not be able to get your partner pregnant. This would definitely cause a lot of unrest, as your partner may desire to have a child and as you are impotent, you would not be able to fulfill this desire of your partner. This could bring all kinds of problems in the home. And it could also cause you to have problems in the office, as this issue would definitely play on your mind when you are at work – and it is sure to affect your job at some point in time. 7. Embarrassment: You would feel embarrassed, in and out of the bedroom, whenever you come across your partner. Out of the bedroom, you would feel embarrassed when you come across your partner, as the thought would constantly be in your mind, that you are unable to have s e x, as you are unable to get an erection. In the bedroom you would feel even more embarrassed, as you would feel that your partner is thinking bad of you, as you are not ‘man enough’ to have s e x with her. And in fact, this embarrassment could be felt within you, even when you are out of the house and on the road, the office or any other place. This is because in your subconscious, you would have that nagging feeling that you are not able to get an erection and that something is wrong with you. 8. Depression: Because of the fact that you are impotent, you can start to feel depressed and if this is not dealt with, this could get really bad. Depression must never be taken lightly, as even though it might be very common in a number of people today, it is a serious medical illness. Depression can affect you very badly and it can negatively change the way you behave, the way you think and the way you feel. When you get depressed, you will begin to feel very sad and you will also lose all interest in the things that you once enjoyed. Depression would ruin your personal life, your family life and your professional life. And the root of all this would lie in you suffering from erectile dysfunction. 9. Late from Work or Late Night House Parties: When you suffer from erectile dysfunction, you would come home late from work always, so that you will not be asked to have s e x. Or you will make it a point to have late night parties when you are at home, this way people will be at your place till late and your partner would not ask you to have s ex after the party gets over late at night. Is There A Quick Solution For Erectile Dysfunction? The answer to this is very simple! If you want something good to happen in your life, you need to have patience and wait for it to happen. As the old adage goes, the good things in life are not easy to come by. The same is the case with you, if you happen to find out that you are suffering from erectile dysfunction symptoms.

Cosplaying while black: are we making our communities unsafe for nonwhite members?
It's all fun and games. Until it's not. I've mentioned Marvel's race problem before, but the truth is the problem is everywhere. There are very few positive representations of people of color in the media today. Some of this is because those in charge of casting, writing, and producing the media we love are almost all white. There are about three nonwhite people in America for every nonwhite character we see on screen, and of those characters, how many of them get screentime or character arcs that don't pidgeonhole them in a stereotype? If you don't think there's a problem, you might want to look again. These problems are psrt of fandom too. Since the media we're celebrating is flawed, it's extremely difficult for us to avoid internlizing the harmful messages that we consume. It's not somehing that can be done passively- it takes real work. Chaka Cumberbatch has been a cosplayer for years, and has been the target of harassment because she cosplays as characters that aren't black like- she is. It's not like she has a lot of options- how many black female characters can you name off the top of your head? Storm, Princess Tiana- she's built some amazing costumes for these characters. But why should Hollywood's diversity problem be hers? The underlying message feels very much like: "This isn't for you, you're not welcome here". Why would anyone want to send that kind of message to a fellow fan? In an interview with HaveYouNerd, she mentioned that even people who didn't overtly exclude her could sometimes make her feel like she didn't belong: "Sometimes, you’ll run into some tokenism, or people will start to get a little too comfortable with you – and it’s always painfully awkward because then it’s like you’re forced to walk this tightrope between sticking up for yourself and forcing the group to have an uncomfortable conversation about race, stereotypes, and why the things they’re saying are problematic. I’ve had times when I was hanging out with a group that was predominately male, that I was accused of “playing the race card,” “overreacting” or “taking things too seriously...” Fandom, we need to do better than this. We need to make our fellow fans of color feel like they're in a safe environment, where they can voice their discomfort and not have their feelings dismissed. Where they can come out and have fun and not worry about being tokenized or harassed. We get so enthusiastic over every new trailer release- why can't we show cosplayers of color the same enthusiasm? We freak out every time nerds are misrepresented in the media, but we can't be bothered to stand up for our fellows when they feel attacked or hurt? And before you say that it's "just about hurt feelings" (like feelings don't matter!?), consider this... On September 10th, 2014, Darren Hunt was shot and killed by the police. While the initial report suggested he had been "lunging towards officers", witnesses and the autopsy confirmed that he had in fact been going in the opposite direction. He was shot in the back. Furthermore,, he was still in costume from a character cosplay. He had a toy sword with him. The police shot an unarmed black man, and they blamed their mistake on his cosplay. Part of making our communities safer needs to include effort to make the WORLD we live in a safer place. It should never be acceptable for the police to recklessly commit homicide like this, but we've seen this story repeating over and over again. Darren Hunt was a fellow fan, but the silence from fan communities was deafening. We're fans. We love heroes in capes that swoop in to save the day when all hope is lost. It's an escape. The thing about escaping into fantasies (like we do with films and comics and tv shows), is that all the problems of the real world follow us there. As nerds and as fans, we have no excuse when we ignore the very real problems our fellows face because of their race (or their gender, their sexuality, or the size of their bodies). Silently ignoring the problem, or taking a "neutral" stance does nothing to help the people endangered by racism. All it does is give more power to those whose actions are deliberately harmful. We as fans need to do so much more to make our communities safer. We need to educate ourselves. We need to demand more diverse guests and panels at our conventions, vocalize your support for fans of color (not talking over them, but listening to their needs and adding your voice to theirs), support writers that are diversifying their work, and advocating for change when the systems that are supposed to be protecting us are applying uneven, brutal force against people of color. We need to listen. If you're still scratching your head, just ask yourself: what would my favorite hero do?

What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)
