THIS IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN MEXICO

25 students where hurt and 43 disappeared in México because they where protesting on the streets. It is well known that the police was involved on the disappearances !!!!!!

Police isn’t killing people just in Ferguson, its also happening in Iguala, Guerrero, México! HELP US SO EVERYBODY KNOWS HOW THE FUCKING GOVERNMENT IS CORRUPT AND THE MOTHER FUCKING PRESIDENT ISN’T DOING SHIT AT ALL!!!! PAULINA PENA, THE PRESIDENT’S DAUGHTER, IS ON VACATION IN EUROPE USING ALL OF OUR FUCKING MONEY WHILE THIS IS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY!!!!!

For people in the US who may not take the term “disappeared” seriously.  Authorities have now accounted for all 43 victims burned in 10 mass graves according to La Jornada.  The story hasn’t really made headlines in the US despite the size of the protests.  You can read the story in WSJ and Aljazeera.  You can also read Leon Krauze in TNR calling out Peña Nieto for inaction and saying helpful things like “[Corruption in Mexico] is a cultural matter.”

If the subject isn’t drugs or immigration, the U.S. news can’t be bothered.

i’ve been really enjoying this

So far magic school was total rubbish.

Elliot sat on the fence bisecting two fields and brooded tragically over his wrongs.

He had been taken away from geography class, one of his most interesting classes, to take some kind of scholarship test out in the wild. A woman in odd clothing had ‘tested’ him by asking him if he could see a wall standing in the middle of a field. When he told her “Obviously, because it’s a wall. Walls tend to be obvious” she had pointed out other people blithely walking through the wall as if it was not there, and told him that he was one of the chosen few with the sight.

“Are you telling me that I have magical powers?” Elliot had asked, extremely excited for a moment, and then he added: “… because I can’t walk through walls? That doesn’t seem right.”


From much later in the same text:

"…and Elliot had to try and explain being Jewish but not practising to an elf."

i was bored and listless and sleepy at work and started reading this and now i’m punched in the feelings

“Lovely child, you think the world is so bright,” said Red Rose: they were the only words he ever spoke to Jewel in the play, as if men didn’t talk to each other. “You have not learned yet that the light of the world is men burning. The years will pass and you will know what it is to be consumed.”

YOU WILL CRY. I CRIED. IT’S THE BEST.

Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.

All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.

Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.

It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.

With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.

How to handle the language barrier

German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.

What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.

This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a shit about your wellbeing in any way.

If Americans don’t reblog this, then y’all need help.
