This Simpsons called it years ago.
The editor of a high school newspaper here recently wrote a cover story on rape culture in the school. It was excellently written. So much so, that other teachers presented it in class as a testament to superior grammar abilities. The author is one of the school’s top students. She has a full-ride academic scholarship to a good east coast school. You can view the story here.
Well now, the principal has enacted a new policy that any feature story for the school paper must be approved by him. He met the author’s adviser and said that if it were up to him, the story would not have been published.
And now EVERYONE in the school — one of the largest in the state — is very pissed off. Our city newspaper got word of it, and we’re trying to spread the word. The author of the story is coming in to our office tomorrow to give our editor an interview, and I’m really hoping we turn out a good story about it. She’s already written and posted a letter to the principal that everyone is sharing. Check it out here.
I’d love to see this get picked up by more media. Even if it’s just statewide.
A student-formed petition has now been started. And kids have been writing numerous letters to the principal that they’ve shared through Twitter.
Guys, this is my high school. The people involved in this story and petition are my real-life friends. I used to write and edit for this paper. Please spread the word!
FIRST OF ALL HOW DARE YOU
NOT ACTUALLY SORRY

don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
this post goes pretty counter to everything i know about image formats - im pretty sure png is lossless and jpeg isnt??? all i know is that if i tried to turn in jpegs of my work to my graphic design prof he would crucify me. can the science side of tumblr explain this
it’s literally the opposite of good advice
jpeg is for compressing filesizes for the sake of storage/bandwidth and is generally a good pick for uploading online (if the image file uses few enough colours it may even be wise to use gif)
lossless formats like tif and png are for preserving the original work and are good picks for printing it
also, a lot of people misuse the term dpi and describe it exclusively as a setting you choose when printing/saving your work. I’ve even seen people talk about what dpi you should save a file at for uploading online, which is meaningless if it’s not actually going to be printed. dpi is the ratio between the pixel and print dimensions of a file, so it’s not something you just sort out in the final steps when you save it; it’s something you should be accounting for before you even begin work
super protip: use a compressing enhancement tool like pngcrush or pnggauntlet in order to get extra small file sizes out of png without risking lossy compression
gif rarely has a filesize advantage over well compressed png, although most image editor software will only save directly in non-optimally compressed png where gif will be smaller
e: incidentally, png versions of comics can often result in lower filesize than even jpeg depending on the source image, so it’s always worth trying out a well-compressed png for ur comics as well as jpeg

That cat is not wearing safety goggles, he hasn’t even bothered to clean up that spilled solvent, and he is holding that Erlenmeyer flask way to close to his face.

Just to get this straight, in this double page spread there are:
- Fat women
- Of different races
- Who are unedited (note the stomach and the rolls)
- And are being praised for being the weight they are (and eating what they want)
- While they are all being quotes talking about being healthy at any weight
I mean, this still isn’t perfect, but this is pretty damned impressive for a mainstream tabloid.
It’s alive! Buried deep in the Siberian permafrost scientists found a ‘giant virus’ that has been asleep for 30,000 years. Named Pithovirus sibericum, it contains 500 genes and was revived in the lab. The researchers are now trying to assess if ancient viruses such as this one could pose a threat for humans. via Science Alert/fb
Let’s hope this wasn’t the stupidest thing we’ve ever done.
there are about 16046540210 movies that explain exactly why this could be the stupidest thing we’ve ever done

This is a bad ideaUh, no, it’s a really good idea. This virus can only infect Protozoa, it doesn’t pose a threat to humans, for one. Research like this is necessary because, particularly with climate change, who knows what viruses are going to get defrosted all on their own? If that happens we have to be prepared for it and to understand the risks and potentially how we can deal with them. And if you think that labs like this one won’t have containment protocols that you hadn’t even imagined then you are just completely wrong. This research is fascinating and incredibly important, but nah, I guess it’s just stupid evil scientists are just trying to mess things up for the hell of it!

Might do another music stream tonight? And by that I mean “write stream where I chicken out and just stick the stream into the corner with my itunes instead of actually showing the smut I’m writing”. But that depends on if it’ll be better or worse to do that than just have normal word wars.
