"Of the 118 elements that make up everything—from the compounds in a chemists arsenal to consumer products on the shelf—44 will face supply limitations in the coming years. These critical elements include rare earth elements, precious metals, and even life essentials like Phosphorus. Research into more abundant alternatives, more efficient uses, recycling and recovery will help mitigate risks and move industry us towards sustainable supply chains." Via.

A while back Clear Science used the example of tellurium (Te, element 52) to illustrate how obtaining enough of a specific material can be challenging.

'Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.'

'The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.

You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.

The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.

You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.’

i’m kinda wary of tumblr feminism these days like i used to be all for pastel graphics with cute slogans and i know that it’s spreading awareness and means far more educated young women out there which is fantastic!!! but at the same time i see so many women and in particular famous women who are happy to take on the cute flower crowns and mottos about “pussy power” but refuse to wear the mantle of actual feminism and try and make a change… like i’m grateful to this website for informing me on so many things i would have been ignorant to otherwise but unless you actively participate in stopping the dehumanization of women rather than “dismantling the patriarchy” with your winged eyeliner then i find it difficult to understand exactly what your grasp on “feminism” is

"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

For future reference.

Thank you.

For those who would ever need it. -C

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

That was my first thought.

If you need to disappear so an abusive partner can’t ever find you, here’s an excellent resource
