This is the first episode I really liked Clara.
Normally I wouldn’t post anything regarding my job on my “personal” blog rather than my “education” blog, but I have far more followers on this account and my Disney account.
Donorschoose.com is a website where teachers submit proposals to fund a project and folks choose to donate any amount toward that teacher’s goal. I teach in a high-poverty area where many of my students cannot afford a notebook, let alone a laptop with internet access and a printer. Due to state testing, what computer labs we have are used 50% of the time or more for tests. If my students need to access the internet or type up a paper, they are often out of luck because there are no computers available, much less a printer. My creative writing club struggled to launch a new literary magazine last year because we simply had no computers for members to use.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is sponsoring a limited event in which they will cover half the cost of what you need, as long as you can get enough donations to cover the rest within a certain amount of time. If my project can earn $647 in donations by August 24th, they will cover the remaining 50%. I will finally have 2 student laptops dedicated to my classroom with a laser printer and one toner cartridge.
I know there are so many teachers out there in the Tumblr community doing the same and it is difficult to donate, so any signal boosts and shares at all are appreciated. Even if I don’t meet the deadline, it is my hope that somehow I can make this happen for my kids.
Korra book 3 finale.
I think I forgot how to breathe a few times. Studio Mir did some absolutely awesome, gorgeous work. Thank you whole Korra crew!!!
I like this GIF as the sequel to my last post. I also love how buff Korra looks in that incredible animation. THAT is how she is supposed to look in every shot.
Thank you, Johane! I would also like to give a huge thanks to the Korra crews at Nick in Burbank, and in Seoul at Studio Mir and Studio Reve for a stellar season and finale. And thank you to the fans! Thanks for sticking with this show after the bumpy ride in Book 2, and the hide-and-seek network shenanigans this summer. Keep cursing the Bryke for making you feel the feels and smell the real poop. We’ll be back with Book 4 as soon as possible. Hopefully it won’t be released only on smartwatches or some other inane platform.
It was absolutely incredible!
Before today it had never occurred to us that birds and bananas are at all similar. Now that we’ve seen this wonderfully weird and ridiculously cute series of parrot-banana hybrid Epoch Gashapon toys, we’re dying to see how other fruit and fauna pair up.
According to RocketNews24, these banana birdies are selling so well that the manufacturer has plans for a whole series of “parrot-foodstuff mash-ups.” The parrot-mushroom hybrids seen in the bottom image are coming out next.
The parrot-banana series actually includes a number of birds from the parrot family from little cockatoos to the splashy Macau.
…I want these
The corg! The cute!
