An evening of new performance works that celebrate the unrelenting strength and beauty of queer womyn and trans* folks.
The team that revived the Buddies’ iconic Strange Sisters cabaret is back in 2014. This year we explore the magical, the mystical and the powerful. Queer womyn & trans* folks as Brujas and witches, as 2-Spirit folks, as transformative fluid beings that create multi-dimensional universes in our relationships, our imaginations and our lived realities. We bring glitter to the classroom, turn hallways into runways, and use our bedrooms as laboratories. We are shapeshifters, and faeries with creativity in our blood. We welcome multi-disciplinary expressions of queer women & trans* folks finding magik in the mundane. Last year’s event was packed to the rafters and sold out well in advance – don’t miss your chance to be part of this iconic event.
Programming to be announced in August. With @geinwong & @beautifulthingslive

So this guy volunteers at the Olympics. He figures maybe he’ll get to see some amazing athletes doing athletic things. And then the fastest man alive gives him a fist bump.
Look at all that happy.
this is still my favourite thing on the internet
I still love this

Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.
Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.
If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”
No no no
Fuck that guy.
Remember this brown girl.
RemeeeemmmmmberrrrrIt’s becoming a reality now:
“Enter StoreDot, an Israeli technology company with a special battery and charger that can supposedly cut re-juicing time down to around 30 seconds. The prototype charging unit, designed for the Samsung Galaxy S4, was demoed for the first time at Microsoft’s Think Next conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, today – but most of the innovation comes in the battery pack itself, rather than the charger…. It’s not the first time nanotechnology has been applied to speed up charging in smartphones, 18-year-old Eesha Khare bagged a runner-up spot at Intel’s International Science and Engineering Fair in May last year.” via: http://thenextweb.com/gadgets/2014/04/07/storedot-promises-recharge-phone-just-30-seconds-2016/
"It begins with this obvious observation: Whales poop. In fact, they poop mightily."
Over at NPR, Robert Krulwich has an amazing story about people who study whale poop, and what it teaches us about food webs, trophic levels, fecal recycling, and whales pooping themselves into existence.
Bonus: Want another ecological whale tale? Check out the amazing animated tale of what happens to a whale after it dies. Whale Fall: An ecosystem born in death.
