Mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani is the first woman to win a Fields Medal. It had been an all-boys club since the prizes were established in 1936. Mirzakhani, a native of Iran, is a professor at Stanford University. She won for her work on “the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces.” Here’s how Nature summed up her contributions:

"Perhaps Maryam’s most important achievement is her work on dynamics," says Curtis McMullen of Harvard University. Many natural problems in dynamics, such as the three-body problem of celestial mechanics (for example, interactions of the Sun, the Moon and Earth), have no exact mathematical solution. Mirzakhani found that in dynamical systems evolving in ways that twist and stretch their shape, the systems’ trajectories “are tightly constrained to follow algebraic laws”, says McMullen. He adds that Mirzakhani’s achievements "combine superb problem-solving ability, ambitious mathematical vision and fluency in many disciplines, which is unusual in the modern era, when considerable specialization is often required to reach the frontier".

Erica Klarreich wrote a wonderful summary of Dr. Mirzakhani for Quanta magazine, which is worth a read. She’s apparently quite the generalist—deriving intellectual satisfaction in “crossing the imaginary boundaries people set up between different fields.” Among her diverse body of work outside dynamics is her doctoral dissertation on geodesics of hyperbolic surfaces, which another researcher called “the kind of mathematics you immediately recognize belongs in a textbook.” Meanwhile, she’s an unassuming character herself, with a deep love of her work and a phenomenal work ethic: "You have to spend some energy and effort to see the beauty of math."

An officer threatens to kill a journalist and those around him since he’s not credential press. He then threatens everyone around the guy with live rounds. If you don’t know what those are, they’re real bullets.

Another journalist tried to ask his name but all he said was “Go fuck yourself”.

The tag trending for this guy on twitter, funny enough, is #officergofuckyourself.

Please spread, Ferguson is not safe. Don’t forget about it.

As a paranormal/horror blogger I can assure you these child abuse ads are the most scariest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Probably because things like that are happening RIGHT NOW at this very INSTANT. 

And it’s horrifying but hopefully these ads bring more attention towards it. 

I got these from this buzzfeed article. You can view more ads and the sources for these ads there as well.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

So…everyone knows anime body proportions are idealized and kind of insane.  But then I find this woman online. This amazing human with HER ANIME LEGS! SUPER LONG SKINNY ANIME LEGS! WHAT?! HOW??   
So I even found a picture of venus online to compare.  And like, now I’m going to take my stubby short legs over there to that sad corner. 

holy shit her legs are practically canon

hER LEGS ARE PEFECT AND HER COSTUME IS SO WELL MADE I WISH TO HUG YOU LADY
