Australian birds of prey are spreading fires ...
#Australian #Aboriginal lore is replete with references to birds carrying fire, and some traditional ceremonies even depict the behaviour. Now ornithologists have collected accounts from witnesses across the savannas of Australia’s far north, known as the Top End, suggesting three Australian birds of prey species use smouldering branches to spread fires and scare prey into their waiting talons.

"The tiny smooch in TROS echoes the unnamed gay support group attendee in Avengers: Endgame, the two men making eye contact in Beauty and the Beast, the two dudes standing next to each other in Star Trek Beyond, the girlfriends who never even touch hands in Deadpool 2, the husbands with blink-and-you'll-miss-it wedding rings in Alien: Covenant, and the superheroine who didn't go out of her way to deny her "girlfriend troubles" in Power Rangers." - ANGIE HAN

Harvesting the Blood of America's Poor: The Latest Stage of #Capitalism
America is one of the only developed countries in the world that pays people to donate blood, much of it sold abroad (70% of the world's plasma is of US origin), and as commercial blood donations have soared, blood now accounts for 2% of the country's exports -- more than corn or soya.
@shirasade Looks amazing. The Star Wars kabuki play I posted a bit ago was amazing to watch as well.
In Mexican tradition there is the idea of dying 3 deaths: the first when you physically die, the second when your body decays and returns to nature, and the final when there is no one around who remembers you. The fear of the third death is what drives a lot of #historical research and #writing and is at least subconsciously behind the new reprinted of #HalGold's book, "#Japan's Infamous #Unit731," which keeps alive the memory of #humanrights atrocities committed by the Imperial #Japanese Army.
It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers & daughters, by former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry. He also wrote a book also titled "Hair Love", which you can find at bookstores everywhere. I love how honest and pure and beautiful this short is, especially without dialogue. There's a lovely score by Daniel D. Crawford & Paul Mounsey that compliments the story.
The #rotoscope, invented by #MaxFleischer in 1915, gave animators the ability to trace directly over film footage. This, in turn, allowed them to translate the movements of a real person into that an animated character. One favorite rotoscope performer was the great #CabCalloway, whose amazing dance moves were captured in a number of early animations.
