Delaney Robinson, a sophomore at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill alleged Tuesday that a football player at the school raped her in February and that UNC has done nothing about it. In a powerful personal statement she explained how “she did everything a rape victim is supposed to do.”

Imagine the following situation: you’re sitting at your computer or looking at your mobile phone, when suddenly you come across a powerful first-person video on YouTube, or a visceral image on Twitter, depicting a breaking news event.

We're getting into affiliate links

staff:

In a couple weeks we’re going to start adding something called “affiliate codes” to links on Tumblr that don’t already have one. Questions are healthy and natural, so let’s go through some:

What are affiliate codes? Basically, they tell a merchant that a customer came from Tumblr. And if there’s a sale, Tumblr may get a commission for the referral.

What’s going to change? Not much, really. Links will look and function exactly as they do now. Even personal affiliate codes, if you use them, will keep working normally.

Why are you doing this? One might argue that affiliate links can help slow or even reduce the cost of goods and services to zero as required for a truly post-capitalist economy.

Can I opt out? Of course. We wrote that right into our TOS. There’s a switch in settings that keeps Tumblr’s affiliate code off of links you post.

I have more questions. That’s why we wrote this FAQ.

I Followed My Stolen iPhone Across The World, Became A Celebrity In China, And Found A Friend For Life September 02, 2016 at 03:26AM



I’ve broken this story up into three chapters. It should never have gone this far, but the internet works in mysterious ways. None of this should have ever happened. It makes absolutely no sense at all. It’s truly crazy.

For the microbiologist Justin Sonnenburg, that career-defining moment—the discovery that changed the trajectory of his research, inspiring him to study how diet and native microbes shape our risk for disease—came from a village in the African hinterlands.

The only technique to learn something new September 02, 2016 at 03:25AM



I had a friend who wanted to get better at painting. But she thought she had to be in Paris, with all the conditions right. She never made it to Paris. Now she sits in a cubicle under fluorescent lights, filling out paperwork all day. Someone stole $90 million from a company I was involved in.

marvel-of-olympus:

THE SECRET OF GRAVITY FALLS!!!!
•The Picture of the triangle guy (Bill) flashes at the end of the Theme song
•At the end of the theme song if u put it up Loud you can hear gibberish but if u play it backwards u can hear a man say ‘three letters back’
•The ‘three letters back’ is a clue that the random letters on the top pic is a message ex. Some of the letters are: V W D Q L V Q R V Z K D W K H V H H P V Which if u use the code ‘three letters back’ it will say: STAN IS NOT WHAT HE SEEMS
• Also the signs of the circle around the triangle are all about the characters of Gravity Falls
Creepy right? Yeah
