Since you’ve really pulled up your awesomesocks and helped us hit our original target, we’ve decided to up the ante. Our new target? $123,000.
“Wow,” you say. “That’s a weirdly specific target!”
You’re right! It’s exactly the amount we need to make sure the JCC gets some amazing solar panels. We want the JCC to be as self-sustaining and sustainable as possible. There’s no shortage of sun in Haiti - solar panels are a great investment.
Spread the word! Get back in the groove! Fundraising isn’t over yet.
Presenting your SAARA winners! The SAARA Smiles winner was thelearnedfoot, a world-wide runathon organised to help Jen Goellnitz with her medical costs after her second battle with cancer.
Well done to all of our winners and nominees, and thank you for voting!
Congrats to the winners!
There are bills being being approved all over the US that will make it illegal for anyone to go undercover and document what is happening to animals (and humans) in factory farms. Specifically, the bills are being moved in Indiana (my state), Arkansas, and possibly in Tennessee. It has already…
And whistleblower suppression bills don’t just harm animals, they also harm our freedom of speech, environmental efforts, and worker rights — which is why these bills are opposed by more than thirty charities, including The Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, the Sierra Club, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the United Food and Commercial Workers.

Recently The Gordon Parks Foundation discovered over 70 unpublished photographs by Parks at the bottom of an old storage box wrapped in paper and marked as “Segregation Series.” These never before series of images not only give us a glimpse into the everyday life of African Americans during the 50′s but are also in full color, something that is uncommon for photographs from that era.
It makes me cry that this was ever our world. What a way to take the rug out from under my day.
I love Mao but how did she get a positive, as in plus signed, GOE after double footing her 3A? *mind blown* *poof* Everyone was so certain that her SP score was so bad because of that 3A but nooo, that double-footed 3A saved her. Only 2 judges penalized that jump. If she got the negative GOE that her 3A deserves, -2 to -3, Mao could’ve gotten a 25 to 27-ish element score. O_O
As for Kostner… I can see that judges love her. Even EuroSport commentators say so.
Yuna’s broken down scores look acceptable. Could’ve been higher but still acceptable. I think she needs to work more on her program components.
Overall, the judging was really weird.
This is not how the GoE reduction works. :)
The penalty for touch-down with a free leg (withought weight transfer) is -1 GOE. However, the GOE score is accumulative, which means that the positive GoE can still be applied for fulfilling the GoE bullets. Of course, if the touch-down would be accomapnied by turn-out, step-out, < or « mark or other visible error, the GoE would be further reducted according to the guildlines.
-2 to -3 GoE is the penalty for actually landing on two feet (with weight distributed on both legs) - see Akiko Suzuki’s 1A in the LP at 4CC 2013.
I’m not sure who is the “everyone” who thought it was the axel that negatively affected the score, either. :) Every post I’ve read blamed the popped 3L with mandatory -3GoE and/or, in the case of the more knowledgeable fans, missed features on the layback and camel spin.
Happy Birthday, Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955)! His 1915 General Theory of Relativity earned him both the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics and worldwide fame and a firm place in history. Dissatisfied with Newton’s classical mechanics and their limitations in explaining the natural world and specifically the newly discovered microscopic world suggested by the electromagnetic field, Einstein proposed a theory that addressed mechanics, electromagnetic fields and gravity. The world relativity was first used in English as a noun in 1834 meaning simply the fact or condition of being relative, derived from the English adjective relative. It first had roughly the sense that Einstein used in the work of English scientist James Clerk Maxwell in 1876. The word relative was used in English in the 14th century to mean a relative pronoun-from the Late Latin relativusmeaning having reference or relation, which came from Latin relatus, the past participle of referre meaning to refer.

He says there aren’t enough people out there who’d watch Supernatural if two of the main characters were gay. Lets prove that Supernatural would still be worth watching to the rest of us.
