Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

GIRL POWER

The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.

Applauding LOUDLY!!!

    Let me recommend 3 books to anyone who wants to invest their time into drawing. This post is directed at animators, but relevant to all learning artists.

    Here are your 3 meals of the day for visual reference. This is your breakfast, lunch and dinner for art improvement.

    Book 1) THE ART OF PIXAR
    colour scripts for all your favourite pixar movies. This is not about accurate figure drawing. This is about LIGHTING. Natural light and dramatic light. Soft light and subtle light.
    You would not believe how positively a good understanding if light and shadow will advance your art. Your artistic skill will leap forward a mile if you practice these techniques.
    No descriptions or heavy text in this book it’s purely visual analysis.

    Book 2) FORCE
    Dynamic life drawing for animators.
    Bring your figure and character drawings to life in a way you’ve never imagined. This will teach you to create a sense of weight and movement, tension and relax in your figure drawings. Through learning these 4 things your figure drawings will come to life, maybe one day soon you’ll be able to apply these same principles to animal drawings also.
    This book is informative but not text heavy. It is mostly completely visual and holds enough text to inform you of new techniques to consider.

    Book 3) SETTING THE SCENE
    backgrounds. Yes they’re scary to think about, but I can promise you they’re a lot easier to get the hang of then drawing the human figure. If you’re already drawing people try drawing backgrounds, your art will improve drastically and your skill to draw backgrounds will advance in no time at all. This book actually contains a healthy mixture of some of the most complex, and some of the most simple animation backgrounds. Backgrounds from the past (traditional art) and present (mostly Digital art). It shows visual progress pictures. It shows a lot of visuals but above all it shows some the history behind some of your favourite movie backgrounds. This book is quite text heavy, but it walks you through the process of ‘setting the scene’ in your illustrations.

    CASTRO VALLEY, C.A. - A California school board is getting heat from community members on a recent purchase.

    Our sister station, KPIX in San Francisco, reports Castro Valley High School is getting a $14,000 espresso machine.

    Some postings on social media call it a waste of money. One Facebook user said, “There is no good explanation for a $14,000 espresso machine bought with district money — period!!!!!”

    The price may sound kind of outrageous, yet Castro Valley Unified School District said it’s an investment.

    Administrators explain, it’s one of the start-up costs as the district moves toward catering its own events rather than hiring vendors. One board member said not only will this save money it will save an important job at the school.

    “We have a 14.5 hour position in the child nutrition department that we are working really hard to keep,” said Assistant Superintendent Candi Clark. “This is an opportunity to keep that position.”

    The board approved the purchase of the espresso machine unanimously.

    They say the money for it will come out of a separate fund as part of the child nutrition department.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting

We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice. 
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."

State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.
Full video of Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s speech is available for download here (.wmv format).

In the mid-1930s, an Australian journalist visited Germany to report on the rise of fascism and interview Adolf Hitler. The atrocities she saw there, which included the public beating of Jews, forever changed the course of her young life. Nancy Wake, who died Sunday at age 98, would spend World War II fighting Nazism tooth and nail, saving thousands of Allied lives, winding up at the top of the Gestapo’s most-wanted list and ultimately receiving more decorations than any other servicewoman.
Wake made her way from Spain to Britain, where she convinced special agents to train her as a spy and guerilla operative. In April 1944 she parachuted into France to coordinate attacks on German troops and installations prior to the D-Day invasion, leading a band of 7,000 resistance fighters. In order to earn the esteem of the men under her command, she reportedly challenged them to drinking contests and would inevitably drink them under the table. But her fierceness alone may have won her enough respect: During the violent months preceding the liberation of Paris, Wake killed a German guard with a single karate chop to the neck, executed a women who had been spying for the Germans, shot her way out of roadblocks and biked 70 hours through perilous Nazi checkpoints to deliver radio codes for the Allies. (via)



I’m going to keep talking about this until you all buy her god damn biography. Because I don’t think you guys understand.
She was NUMBER ONE on the Gestapo’s most wanted list during the war.  There was a 5 MILLION FRANC prize on her head.
They called her the White Mouse because of her skill for escaping certain death. 
She was parachuting into a camp once and got tangled in a tree. A French soldier saw her flailing around and said, “I hope that all the trees in France bear such beautiful fruit this year.” She answered only, “Don’t give me that French shit.”
She would smuggle messages, food, and supplies in a supply truck and when she passed German posts she’d wink at the soldiers and say, “Do you want to search me?” They never did.
She found out at one point that her men had been hiding a female German spy, protecting her. The rule was to kill them, but the men didn’t have the heart. But Nancy Wake did. And she never regretted it.
When she killed a man with her bare hands, it was an SS sentry who’d spotted her and she killed him to prevent him from raising the alarm during the raid. She would later say of it, “They’d taught us this judo-chop stuff with the flat of the hand at SOE, and I practiced away at it. But this was the only time I used it - whack - and it killed him all right. I was really surprised.”
She died in 2011, 3 weeks before her 99th birthday.
If you don’t think Nancy Wake deserves a movie and a TV show and all the damn recognition in the world, you’re wrong.
