So I came across this on LinkedIn and I really liked the concept that Franky Plata Rojas and Thibauly Kervarech have going here. Definitely worth checking out if you’re look for something new to read.

"…estimates six companies have each made more than $100 million in annual sales during the last decade using the Maasai name. In 2003, Jaguar Land Rover sold limited-edition versions of its Freelander called Maasai and Maasai Mara. Louis Vuitton’s (MC:FP) 2012 spring-summer men’s collection included scarves and shirts inspired by the Maasai shuka. The shoe company Masai Barefoot Technology (MBT) says on its website that the distinctive curved soles of its sneakers were inspired by “the wonderfully agile Masai [sic] people walking barefoot.” Bedding by Calvin Klein (PVH), shirts and trousers by Ralph Lauren (RL), and cushions by Diane von Furstenberg have all been sold using the tribe’s name. “Most of the value of the Maasai brand is not in the handicrafts the tribe produces,” Layton says. “It’s in the cultural value of an iconic brand.”

Because I’m trying to be poor on purpose. Riiiight

Series Reading Issues

  • 1: Wants to read a series...waits until all of the books are out first.
  • 2: Finishes reading latest installment in a series...has to wait a year or more for the next book.
  • 3: Thinks a series should just end...there's still more books coming out AND there's a sequel series.
  • 4: Falls in love with the main character...cries when the character is killed at the end of the series.
  • 5: Falls in love with ANY character...character eventually dies.
  • 6: Can't wait for the last book in the series...is extremely disappointed with how the series ends.
  • 7: There's more books in a series that looks good...doesn't read the rest of the series.
  • 8: Can't wait to find out what happens with the female and male main characters...discovers that now it's a love triangle.
  • 9: Has the first two books in paperback...the third comes out in hardcover.
  • 10: Almost has the entire series...the newest book in the series has a completely different cover style.
  • 11. New book in a series comes out... has to reread all the previous books first.
  • Have anymore series issues? Feel free to share!
  • 12. Feels like the only one in the world who isn't part of the fandom for the series.
  • 13. Doesn't hear about the series until the last one and feels left out.

An Israeli academic has claimed that raping wives and mothers of Palestinian Hamas militants is the only thing that could deter further terrorist attacks.
The remarks by renowned Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University were made three weeks ago after the grim discovery of the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the recording was published online (in Hebrew) on Monday.
"The only thing that could deter a suicide bomber is knowing that if caught, his sister or his mother would be raped," said Kedar on Israel Radio Bet.
"It sounds very bad, but that’s the Middle East," he continued. "You have to understand the culture in which we live. The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders."
To the shocked radio presenter who said that “we cannot take such steps, of course”, Kedar replied:
"I’m not talking about what we should or shouldn’t do. I’m talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That’s all. That’s the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister’s honor."
Kedar served for 25 years in the military intelligence, where he specialised in Islamic groups. He is currently a researcher at the right-wing Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies of Bar Ilan but previously worked for a shadowy organisation, the Israel Academia Monitor, which fights left-leaning academic professors.

At which point do you say ‘enough is enough’ and speak out against your hard earned tax dollars being sent to/your leaders supporting this country?
Ethnic cleansing, targeting civilians, ambulances, hospitals, harvesting organs of dead Palestinians without consent, forced sterilisation of Ethiopians, land grab, apartheid wall, illegal settlements, and now incitement to rape - is it time to wake up, world?

What the hell

Everyone is always speaking out on rape culture and how much we need to stop rape from happening. I would like to see this also added to the protests.
Let’s see if y’all can signal boost this and make it big…
Because at the moment, there’s only a handful of people actually protesting this. The rest of you are only worried about yourselves…

booooooooooooooost
the atrocities Israel is committing against the Palestinians must be stopped


WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?! #NO

Today in labor history, July 17, 1981: 3,500 miners in the Cape Breton Island coal fields in Nova Scotia, Canada, go on strike over wages. It was the first strike since nationalization of the mines in 1967. The bitter strike was settled in October, with a tentative agreement that raised wages 50 percent over two years.
