Bobtail Squid 
This photo taken during a night dive at the Pier in Anilao, Batangas (Philippines), shows a bobtail squid striking a defensive pose.
Bobtail squids are cephalopods belonging to the Order Sepiolida, closely related to cuttlefish. They are small (2-8cm), with a short, rounded body, and without a cuttlebone. They have eight suckered arms and two tentacles.
These squids can only be positively identified by examining the arm and suckers of the males. Females are difficult to identify.

TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom. 

Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.

Very happy to accommodate these requests!

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.

Missouri cop’s racist Michael Brown Facebook post triggers investigation

Kansas City police officer Marc Catron will face an internal review after posting controversial images of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old shot six times and killed by a Ferguson police officer, to Facebook, local news station KCTV5 has reported.
[…]
The problem with that later statement, in addition to the obvious, is that the man in that photo isn’t Brown. It’s Jodah Cain, a 17-year-old who stands accused of murdering his grandmother in Oregon last year.

#ItEndsHere: The Full Series
Over the past two weeks, we have been running a series of posts confronting the crisis of violence against Indigenous women and girls, to declare: #ItEndsHere. We are committed to eliminating all forms of violence within Indigenous communities, including violence based on gender and sexual identity and orientation. Please read and share these powerful words.
"First, I want to cite Susan Blight: ‘It is not about you being inclusive,  [decolonization] is about you being included under our laws, relations, and ways of being’.  The killing of Indigenous women is an extension of the genocidal practices of the colonial mother country and it is intended to eliminate the decolonization of Canada as a mother country.   It is not simply about “ending violence”, the violation is the colonial order, that rests on our lands, our homes, our lives and kills either overtly [killing young women, slaughters our lineages forever] or covertly, assimilation, reconciling without restoring our nations.  The people in  this country need to own up: this is not Europe, Africa or Asia, it is Turtle Island.  Political struggle is the struggle of one set of laws versus another.  In this country that means our laws must prevail, our sensibility must prevail.  We are all about “all my relations”, this is the centre point of our legal systems, everyone in this country, in order to be a ‘decolonized’ citizen must ascribe to this and protect the mothers of our nations and the future mothers of our nations, so that we may live within and transmit to everyone our laws and our relational teachings, that we may all live in peace.  Anything else contributes to genocide." — Lee Maracle
