Why is Hermione’s skin black o_o ? I am troubled here
Why wouldn’t she be? No where in the books did it say she was white. Also, why the idea of a black Hermione trouble you so much?
Now you know you cant have Black people in headcanons unless the book explicitly says she was a colored negro afro american chocolate ebony girl….
Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.
Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.
Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.
Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).
Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.
Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.
Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
Oh goodness. The bar had the most attractive women and the sexiest shirtless men. I had such fun dancing.
My lifting attire for today.
Today was exclusively upper body. Chest, back, and a bit of arms specifically. So i didn’t need to wear any compression gear. I felt a bit like arnold or any of the other bodybuilders from pumping iron with the short shorts and all. haha
Going out dancing with a coworker. This will be her first time out since having a baby. Should be delightful.
This was also day six of my recent phase of squatting every day. Ordinarily I squat 100 lbs 3X5. Today, I squatted 20 lbs 2X5. I think I will incorporate one very easy day like this every ten days or so. Just to add a little texture to the training cycle.
