New Discovery: Inner Regions of Milky Way’s Disc Formed First
A breakthrough using data from the Gaia-ESO project has provided evidence backing up theoretically predicted divisions in the chemical composition of the stars that make up the Milky Way’s disc – the vast collection of giant gas clouds and billions of stars that give our Galaxy its ‘flying saucer’ shape. By tracking the fast-produced elements, specifically magnesium, astronomers can determine how rapidly different parts of the Milky Way were formed. The research suggests that stars in the inner regions of the Galactic disc were the first to form, supporting ideas that our Galaxy grew from the inside-out.
Using data from the 8-m VLT in Chile, one of the world’s largest telescopes, an international team of astronomers took detailed observations of stars with a wide range of ages and locations in the Galactic disc to accurately determine their ‘metallicity’: the amount of chemical elements in a star other than hydrogen and helium, the two elements most stars are made from.

Orphan Black is back! In between convincing my kith and kin to binge-watch the first season, quick, I’ve put together a recommendation list for the lovers of cons, clones, and cult-classics in your life. 

Pattern Recognition, by William Gibson 

Sci-fi giant William Gibson’s globe-spinning thriller of corporate shenanigans and human quirks. 

Sekret, by Lindsay Smith 

Cold War espionage meets mad science and superpowers when teenaged psychic Yulia is forced into a world where everyone wants something and no one can be trusted. 

Pawn, by Aimee Carter 

Kitty has a chance at wealth and power in her caste-bound society—if she transforms herself into the prime minister’s niece and dives head first into the plots and rebellion that got her killed. 

Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson

All-powerful corporations, virtual katana duels, a sass-mouthed skater chick, Sumerian mythology, movie-watching pirates, and hacking the human brain. 

The Likeness, by Tana French

When a corpse turns up bearing not only Detective Cassie Maddox’s likeness but also an ID matching one of Cassie’s old undercover identities, Cassie agrees to go undercover as the murder victim. Then things get complicated. Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad mysteries are atmospheric, complex, creepy and engrossing. 

White Cat, by Holly Black 

A teenaged grifter with a past gets rapidly in over his head in this genre-bending tale of crime, conspiracy, memory and magic. 

Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro 

It bears no resemblance to Orphan Black in tone, structure, style or philosophy, but Never Let Me Go remains one of my favorite explorations of what it means to be human in a world which may or may not recognize you as such. And there are clones. So it goes on the list.

Genie is the pseudonym for a feral child who spent nearly all of the first thirteen years of her life locked inside a bedroom strapped to a potty chair. She was a victim of one of the most severe cases of social isolation ever documented. Genie was discovered by Los Angeles authorities on November 4, 1970.
During the day, she was tied to a child’s toilet in diapers; some nights, when she had not been completely forgotten, she was bound in a sleeping bag and placed in an enclosed crib with a cover made of metal screening. Indications are that Genie’s father beat her with a large stick if she vocalized, and he barked and growled at her like a dog in order to keep her quiet. He also rarely allowed his wife and son to leave the house or even to speak, and he expressly forbade them to speak to Genie. By the age of 13, Genie was almost entirely mute, commanding a vocabulary of about 20 words and a few short phrases (nearly all negative, such as “stop it” and “no more”).


I learnt about this in psychology its so so sad but really interesting

after seeing this post i just browsed through the wiki pagestories like this really fuck me up.

“I didn’t know anything about dolls. I didn’t know what they were made from, how long it takes to make them, I knew nothing,” Williams confessed. “What I had was the desire to produce a product that would uplift the self-esteem of our little girls. From that vision I worked to find manufacturers and learn. I researched how to do it.”

A few years ago my mother’s best friend, Dr. Lisa Williams, got the idea to start a line of dolls aimed at increasing the self-worth and esteem of little black girls.
These dolls have been important to me, even as an adult, in that they are creating an image of black girls that is a reflection of their beauty. Something healthy, and something attainable. The motto is "Positively Perfect, Just the Way Your Are."
Having had the opportunity to witness the process, it warms me to say that they have truly been made with love.
Where to find them:
