Joey’s silky gold hair gleams in the afternoon sun. The big bundle of energy loves to cuddle. He also looks like he could lose a few pounds.
This herding dog is one of the many survival stories here at the Kabul shelter and clinic called Nowzad Dogs. The facility has rescued and treated hundreds of street animals in Afghanistan and has helped reunite hundreds of soldiers and contractors with animals they informally adopted while deployed in the country.

“Data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) show that there is a positive correlation between cuts to school library staff and lower reading scores, whereas states that gained school librarians saw an increase in reading scores.”

Erasure Through Application Forms

moderatelyexcessive:

lismicroaggressions:

As a recent MLIS graduate, I’ve been diligently applying to LIS jobs. Invariably, I’ll be forced to select my gender on a form that only has two options. So I have to lie about a significant part of myself and be made invisible. Out of several dozen applications, only one had a “Transgender” option. I actually wept with gratitude.

Why is gender even required as part of a job application?

Great question…why /is/ gender even a required part of a job application? It’s irrelevant.

A kid, running out of story time: “IS THIS THE BEST PLACE ON EARTH, OR WHAT?!”

That’s me every time I go through the car wash. 

(also, that baby should be in a car seat. And I hope that’s water in that bottle.)

Things that blew your mind when you were a kid.

One time a kid saw my co-teacher in Target and the kid burst into tears. “GO BACK TO SCHOOL YOU DON’T BELONG HERE!”

“Love the fetus, hate the child.”


America makes it near impossible for a woman to stay autonomous—hard to get family planning resources/make the choice of getting an abortion, and harder to get child care support after the baby is born. Leaving women destitute and dependants everywhere.

Look at Canada! Not only do we give almost a full year off, it can be either maternity or paternity. That’s right, daddy can stay home with the baby while the mother goes back to work. And the leave can be also be split between them. For example, the mother could take six months, and then the father could take the other six. Did I also mention that the parent on leave continues to receive pay and is guaranteed their job back?

…people, Pakistan has more materanity leave than the US. home of the free huh? noooooope?

Forget common core for a moment, begin a real education revolution by supporting women, children and families.
