For nearly 13 hours Texas State Senator Wendy Davis stood and spoke in the senate chamber of the Texas house to filibustered a bill that, if passed, would have been the most restrictive of any other anti- abortion bill in the country. Rules of the filibuster state that she was to remain standing, not lean on her desk, or take any breaks - even for meals or bathroom. From 11:18am to 12:00am that night the senator spoke about her stance on abortion and a woman’s right to choose just narrowly defeating the bill after its final vote at 12:02. This one woman both literally and figuratively stood for what she believed in for herself and millions of other women in Texas and prevailed. Someone give her a fucking medal!
Wendy Davis is an American hero.
What the fuck kind of rule is that, anyway? Stand for 12 hours or your argument is invalid?
What an amazing not-to-be-fucked-with woman!
“Saved by veterinarians SuperGatito
This kitten was born with deformed rib cage, which directly affected the position of his heart and triggered a series of breathing problems. In this situation, veterinarians put a splint on his chest and blindfolded him, it was then realized that the dressing resembled a superhero costume, hence the name Supergatito.
Supergatito more like Iron Cat
we can rebuild him

Awww, super kitty got a puppy!
This looks like St Vitus Cathedral in Prague..

Taking cues from the firefly, a Dutch electronics company has created a product called “Bio-light”—an eco-friendly lighting system that uses glowing, bioluminescent bacteria. They’re not powered by electricity or sunlight, but by methane generated by the company’s Microbial Home bio-digester that processes anything from vegetable scraps to human waste. The living bacteria are fed through silicon tubes, and as long as they’re nutritionally-fulfilled, they can indefinitely generate a soft, heat-free green glow using the enzyme luciferase and its substrate, luciferin. They’re kept in hand-blown glass bulbs clustered together into lamps, but you can’t light up your house with them yet—the glow isn’t nearly bright enough to replace conventional artificial lights. They do, however, get people to think about untapped household energy sources and how to make use of them. The company, Phillips, also envisions the use of these Bio-lights outside the home—for nighttime road markings, signs in theatres and clubs, and even biosensors for monitoring diabetes.
