Laws fail to protect pregnant women who need special accommodations on the job "Heather Myers was fired from her job at a Wal-Mart store in Salina, Kan., for keeping a water bottle nearby — even though she was pregnant and simply following doctor’s orders to drink plenty of liquids."

…the second-biggest U.S. lender, rewarded staff with cash bonuses and gift cards for meeting quotas tied to sending distressed homeowners into foreclosure, former employees said in court documents.
Mortgage workers falsified records and were told to delay U.S. loan-assistance applications by requesting paperwork that the Charlotte, North Carolina-based bank had already received, according to statements from ex-employees filed last week in federal court in Boston. The lender improperly disqualified applicants to the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, according to a May 23 statement from Simone Gordon, a loss-mitigation specialist who left the company in 2012.
During the last special session in 2011, Texas senate and house passed HB15 aka “The Sonogram Bill.” Well they’re not going to pass any of their four bills up for votewithout a fight. I’ll be traveling to Austin (4 hours away) to make sure they hear me and the demographics I represent (18-24, Hispanic, Woman, uninsured, low-income). They passed HB15 without a peep or any media scrutiny. Not this time.

Found a way to have gender neutral pronouns on facebook that actually works. I followed the instructions given in the following link through Google Chrome, and everything went swimmingly; I then checked it on my Android, and everything seems to be in working order. So, unlike a lot of other codes/processes that seem to only change your pronouns on the machines you have installed the code on (and may in which no longer work due to facebook updates), this process seems to change your gender on all devices.
Following these instructions will allows you to change your facebook to use they/them/their pronouns. Pretty nifty!
I can confirm, it actually does work on all devices, I checked with a friend in a different state. I also took a look at the code, it works by actually going into your facebook data file via the moble site and deleting the gender data. Completely harmless otherwise.
Okay phew, glad it actually works! It works on my laptop and phone, but it’s good to know it’s working for others as well!
Thank you to random Cambridge undergrad for making this code!
…up to 200,000 people angry with high costs and poor public services took to the streets. Protesters in Rio de Janeiro burned cars and looted buildings as police attempted to disperse them with teargas and rubber bullets. Aerial images showed thousands of people attempting to storm the congress building in Brasilia. The rallies…are some of the biggest ever seen in the country…
—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)
Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?
I didn’t know this.
He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.
When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.
And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this. They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.

No, I’m not going to the world cup. (por Carla Dauden)
It’s no secret that many Christian-affiliated colleges enforce very strict behavioral expectations for their students, but Danielle Powell is realizing just how vindictive a college can be when those expectations are not met. She had enrolled in Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska, but was expelled in the spring of 2011, just months before graduating, after it was discovered she was in a relationship with another woman. Now, the school is demanding she pay back $6,000, claiming she has to repay her federal loans and grants since she did not finish the semester.
The Department of Education says any money she may or may not owe the school is between the two of them and “not at all because of federal rules.” On the other hand, there are also no rules requiring the university not to discriminate based on sexual orientation when receiving financial aid from the federal government, so it’s unclear territory. Powell actually attempted to follow through on the remediation plan the school originally laid out for her, which included months of church attendance, Christian counseling, and promises not to engage in sex. She was readmitted, then promptly kicked out again because the staff’s “prevailing opinion is that those professions appear to have been insincere, at best, if not deceitful.” In other words, Grace is essentially fining a former student for not convincing the faculty she is straight enough to complete her education there.
Grace’s Student Handbook includes a litany of rules all students are required to sign and abide by. For example, students are not allowed to watch HBO, VH1, MTV, BET, Comedy Central, or any R-rated movie on campus. It also includes severe limitations on displays of affection, explicitly prohibiting activities like “extending holding or embracing one another,” “lying next to each other,” kissing, and “giving backrubs/rubbing shoulders.” “Homosexual acts” are considered “sexually immoral behavior” and thus a “Level-Three violation,” which at minimum includes University Probation and possibly fines starting at $100.

This has nothing to do with Now You See Me, but this could help a couple people out. Friendly reminder!
On Monday, during a parliamentary commission hearing to determine if he was a fit for the top court, he was asked whether the death penalty should be applied in cases of rape. His response?
“Consideration needs to be taken thoroughly for the imposition of death penalty for a rapist because in a rape case both the rapist and the victim enjoy it.”
LAST NIGHT: 100,000 Brazilians flood streets to protest World Cup spending and government corruption.
This site has chest binders for 16 dollars and free shipping. I know people have limited money and I felt like this was worth sharing.
I hate to comment on posts but hey kids aliexpress is a scam site!! it puts up listings from taobao for the same price or a bit lower and they get your money and never send the item and if they do it’s all mucked up my parents lost money trying to get me a Lolita dress from here!!! so idk if people will actually see this via my acct but if you do, look for this on taobao or !! I think there are sites that sell them for 20-30$ and temporary binders you can make till u can afford a real o
I highly discourage people from buying any binders that are below the price of 40 dollars. Cheap binders usually do more harm than good.
I recommend people using online stores like lesloveboat. They are fiarly expensive, however they have a wide variety of different binders (velcro, zipper, pullover, and even swimming binders). They also sell packing devices and briefs specially made for packing devices.
The binders are expensive but in the long run it’s better to save up and buy a decent binder instead of buying cheap binders and risk harming yourself. Plus I’ve had very good experience with this site, and the owners do a good job at responding to questions and concerns fairly quickly.
It’s also a good site because it sells plus size binders.
damn sorry for reblogging this before
