Funny you should ask. That’s Fung Hak On and yes, he’s dead…in real life.

Martial arts people are simply awesome.

 

 
Theresa Kachindamoto

nyshadidntbreakit

Her name is Theresa Kachindamoto, and she is a senior chief – political leader of a region with a population of about 900,000 people.

She didn’t run for election; she was appointed, without her knowledge, while she was living and working in a completely different part of the country. She just received a call one day telling her to come back to her childhood home, because she was in charge now.

So she did; and when she arrived, she discovered widespread sexual abuse of children. She browbeat 50 uncooperative local leaders into accepting her decision to annul all the marriages. She then fired four of them when they continued to allow children to be married off in their areas. She still faces widespread opposition from parents who consider it their right to sexually abuse their daughters if they want to; but Kachindamoto very evidently does not give a fuck, and is continuing to use political and legal means to protect children in the region.

She’s not just an anonymous do-gooder; she’s an effective political leader despite incredibly difficult circumstances.

Theresa Kachindamoto.

Another absolutely fantastic person.

There is some slim hope that our species will survive.

 

 
Thank God for March. This week we’ll be seeing mid 50s on the termoskan and that is so welcome. I was never a winter person. Still windy af, though. The other day it ripped the flag off the house. Madonne.

Found a cure for my poverty, but, naturally, I’m too poor to implement it. I would need $5,000.00 to get rolling and then it would just keep on truckin.’ Unfortunately, I am exactly $5K short of the $5K needed, so, like everything else in my life, it’s just a painful pipe dream. Maybe after 4 or 5 years, I could save up that much. Theoretically possible, at least. An investing service, it is, but a rather unique one. Half of the 5 would go to them and the other half to open a brokerage account. And like I mentioned, I am 5 short with years of savings to do it. Sucks being poor.

Teacher Stumbles Upon Baby Bears ‘Dancing’ In Finland Forest, Thinks He’s Imagining It

Rokas Laurinavičius and Mindaugas Balčiauskas

Physical education teacher Valtteri Mulkahainen from Sotkamo, Finland, has been devoting a lot of his free time to photography. For the past six years, Valtteri has been shooting his country’s wildlife and captured many magical moments. And this is a story about one of them.

On the 3rd of June, 2013, Valtteri was planning to explore the Finnish taiga around the town of Martinselkonen. As the man was exploring the area, he noticed a bear coming into a clearing with a few small cubs.

More info: Instagram | 500px.com | Facebook

“The cubs behaved like little children,” Valtteri told Bored Panda. “They were playing, and even started a few friendly fights. I felt like I was on a playground in front of my house, where small children frolic around. That’s how much they reminded me of little children. At one point, the three of them got up on their hind legs and started pushing each other. It was like they were dancing in a circle.”

Valtteri was in a shelter 50 meters (164 feet) away from the adorable action and had the perfect view. “I photographed the cubs with the bear all evening and all night,” he said.

You can bump into a bear pretty much everywhere in Finland except the Åland Islands. Most of them live in the eastern part of the country and Lapland, but people regularly see these majestic creatures in the southern and western areas as well.

Like the cubs have successfully proven us, bears are agile and strong. They use their forelegs very effectively for both hunting and getting around. Moreover, they’re very good swimmers and climbers. Basically, they’re the whole package.

However, the fact that Valtteri managed to get such clear shots of the family is really fascinating. Bear will typically try to avoid humans as best as they can. Humans rarely see them in the wild since these animals almost always retreat immediately after detecting our presence. Keen senses and the ability to move silently make them perfect at this game of hide and seek.

According to the latest assessments by the Finnish Natural Resources Institute, there were between 2020 and 2130 bears before the 2019 hunting season.

Too fabulous not to share…

 

 
This report is long overdue and it isnt even comprehensive. Naturally the psychopathic vat of war criminal turds is upset for having more of their crimes exposed.

These companies are pure evil and everything should be done to destroy them and their people, including immolation  by fire.

True Facts : Pangolins Posse

zefrank1
Jun 13, 2018

“The giant anteater resembles a walking index finger with a mullet…and leg warmers.”

Now that Chinese scientists are putting blame on the adorable and hihly endanered pangolin for the coronavirus, this humorous look at the little critters is in order to lighten things up a bit.

The pangolin are endangered, by the way, because of the Stone Age superstition that the scales of the helpless creatures possess some sort of magical powers when ingested. No, really, they actually think that.

For all their 5,000+ years of being, the Chinese remain sort of like pitiful putzy pricks who bark at the moon like a God damned loon.

Sadly it is possible that the virus uses the little guys to ride around on in search of victims.

 

 

It does dumb kids and adults down like clockwork. This has been known since the late 1800s when this on-purpose “education” system commenced.

It is absolutely disgusting.

Scientist Predicts Higher Forms Of Alien Life on Europa

It’s ‘almost a racing certainty’ there’s alien life on Jupiter’s moon Europa—and Mars could be hiding primitive microorganisms, too. That’s the view of leading British space scientist Professor Monica Grady, who says the notion of undiscovered life in our galaxy isn’t nearly as far-fetched as we might expect.

Professor Grady, a Professor of Planetary and Space Science, says the frigid seas beneath Europa’s ice sheets could harbor ‘octopus’ like creatures. Meanwhile the deep caverns and caves found on Mars may also hide subterranean life-forms—as they offer shelter from intense solar radiation while also potentially boasting remnants of ice.

Professor Grady was speaking at Liverpool Hope University, where she’s just been installed as Chancellor, and revealed: “When it comes to the prospects of life beyond Earth, it’s almost a racing certainty that there’s life beneath the ice on Europa.”

“Elsewhere, if there’s going to be life on Mars, it’s going to be under the surface of the planet. “There you’re protected from solar radiation. And that means there’s the possibility of ice remaining in the pores of the rocks, which could act as a source of water.”

“If there is something on Mars, it’s likely to be very small—bacteria.”

“But I think we’ve got a better chance of having slightly higher forms of life on Europa, perhaps similar to the intelligence of an octopus.”

Well, if that’s the case then the universe could be teeming with life and probably advanced civilizations far ahead of us in technology that would perhaps seem like magic to us. One scientist said that there are more advanced civilizations partying around the universe than there are grains of sand on planet earth!!

I wouldn’t go that far but there is probably more life out there than we can ever imagine!

phys.org…

EnceladusI would go that far. Life teems. It’s the only thing life knows how to do. Just look at our own world, there’s life deep underground…inside the rocks…and they just found life inside the Chernobyl reactor that eats the radiation.

So, yes, absolutely, life is everywhere — and I use the word everywhere quite literally.

I love this stuff. We need to stop killing each other and get out in space! And hey, there is also Enceladus!
