This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

The great Hallmark Movie fic challenge

agentotter:

Hallmark Channel movies are legitimately terrible like 99% of the time but I feel like there should be a fanfiction challenge where people write fic based on their cable guide summaries. I mean, they’re all so perfect because there are already fics like these, these are some…

So. I had no idea about this app until I went into my doctor and he told me about it. 

LISTEN UP. THIS APP. THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE IS SERIOUSLY A BLESSING. ESPECIALLY TO ANYONE WITH FINANCIAL PROBLEMS (which is kind of everyone now). THIS IS NOT INSURANCE THOUGH. BUT IT WILL HELP YOU OUT. DOWNLOAD THIS APP RIGHT NOW. NO. STOP READING. DOWNLOAD IT

This app allows you to input the prescription you have, select your dose, and then find a place near you (or your own pharmacy) with the cheapest price. Then you click “get code/coupon/discount card,” show that to the pharmacist, and THERE YOU GO. SAVING YOU SOME CASH TO GET YOURSELF A WELL DESERVED DRINK, CANDY BAR, DATE MONEY, SEX TOY CASH, OR GO BUY YOURSELF A HAMSTER AND NAME HIM STARLORD WITH THE EXTRA MONEY

No, but in all seriousness. This app is saving my ass right now. 

I’m Trans* and have Fibromyalgia, and this is really making a difference already. I hope this helps out other people. We all know it fucking sucks to have to pay this much for the medication we need to function in life. 

this really helped me out when i didn’t have insurance. like, being able to spend only $8 on meds that normally would’ve cost me $100+ is incredible.

Very important

Yooooooo, this is also good for those with High Deductible Plans!!

NRA News shamelessly promotes viewer-submitted pictures of children with firearms, some engaged in unsafe gun practices

Meanwhile, these accidental shootings by children in the U.S. happened within just one month: August 2nd - September 2nd, 2014. 

A 7-year-old boy shot himself at his family’s homemade shooting range in California:  

The boy was reportedly firing a single-shot, .22 bolt action youth rifle under his father’s supervision. When the boy cried out, his father noticed there was a small hole in his shirt, then blood.

A 9-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her instructor with an Uzi in Arizona: 

"(The mother) was visibly upset and shaken," the report reads. She said "the gun went off and saw (her daughter) drop the gun. (The girl) turned to her and told her the gun was too much for her and it hurt her shoulder. (The mother) said no one knew Vacca was shot until the other instructor ran over."

A 4-year-old boy in Texas was injured after he found his parents’ handgun: 

The boy climbed into his parents’ bedroom closet in their home on the 600 block of Destin Drive and found their .38-caliber gun on the top shelf, Fort Worth police said. The gun was loaded and unlocked when the boy pulled the trigger.

A 13-year-old boy was shot and killed by his 14-year-old friend while they were handling a rifle in Oklahoma:

Police say initially the other teens said the victim shot himself with the gun, but after questioning them separately, police say the 14-year-old accidentally fired the gun … Police say the rifle used was stolen from a home in Midwest City in 2011. Right now investigators don’t know how the gun ended up in the teens hands. 

A 9-year-old girl died after shooting herself with her father’s gun:

"The young lady was searching or looking around, found the weapon, was pulling it out of the drawer an the gun discharged as he was pulling it out of the drawer," said Police Chief Rex Brown. Brown said the bullet hit her in the head.

A 7-year-old boy in Tennessee shot and killed himself with his grandfather’s pistol: 

Hills’ grandfather, Dana Buck, said he was in the living room watching TV when he heard a shot. He ran to the bedroom and found Hills, who had accidentally shot himself with a pistol.

A 3-year-old boy in Chicago, IL was critically injured after finding his father’s handgun and accidentally shooting himself in the head:

Police said the boy was in a closet with at least one other child and playing with the gun when it discharged, hitting the boy in the head and leaving him in critical condition. Police said the boy’s father took the gun, the remaining rounds and fled the scene. 

In Tennessee, a 10-year-old boy shot himself in the foot while hunting:

According to TWRA, the 10-year-old was dove hunting at the Buffalo Springs Wildlife Management Area in Grainger County when he accidentally shot himself in the foot. He was taken by medical helicopter to UT Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

A 3-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the face in Atlanta: 

The 3-year-old was taken to a local hospital for treatment, according to police. The newspaper spoke with a neighbor, Ivey McMullen, who said she “heard people screaming that ‘the baby shot himself.’”

A 7-year-old boy in Ohio shot himself while playing in his grandparents’ backyard: 

Police said the boy was in his back yard on Impala Dr. with his brother. They found a gun, and began playing with it … Colerain police said that the boys live with their grandparents, and there does not seem to be a lot of supervision. Officers will also look into how the boys were able to get a gun so easily.

A 15-year-old boy shot himself in the face after he found a hidden key to his parent’s gun safe while they were at work: 

[He] found a hidden key to the gun safe and was able to get to a handgun inside. The 15-year-old told police that the gun went off as he was putting it back in the gun safe … Police said the parents told them they didn’t think their children knew where the gun safe key was hidden.

So how’s our country handling this pattern of violence resulting from children handling firearms? A child can still legally own a rifle or shotgun in 30 states.

Over the weekend you may have heard of or seen - nude photos of celebrities were stolen off of their phones and posted online. It’s a terrible invasion of privacy, but probably the most disconcerting part of this for me is that some people are blaming the celebrities for having the nude photos on their phones in the first place.

IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT YOU HAVE SOMETHING THEY WANT.  Yes, this should absolutely be a wake up call to everyone else to upgrade their security system but IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT YOU HAVE SOMETHING THEY WANT.  Notice - when MEN get robbed it’s not their fault for having the stuff.  It’s not even because they wore the wrong clothes or worked hard (or just lucked out) to have the extra-extra-extra awesome stuff.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

“I don’t think the comment “bisexuals have straight privilege unless they’re in lesbian relationships” makes any more sense than saying “lesbians have straight privilege while they’re single”. This makes the assumption that all bisexuals who are single or in opposite-sex relationships actively hide their sexual orientation.

If a gay woman keeps her sexual identity secret while she’s single in order to avoid discrimination, we don’t accuse her of co-opting straight privilege – we sympathize with her for feeling the need to closet herself. So why the double standard for bisexuals?

It might not apply to you, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t straight-looking femme lesbians, or androgynous-looking, rainbow-wearing, alternative-haircut-having bisexuals. My point is that that comment oversimplifies and overgeneralizes things in a way that seems unreasonable to me.”
