this gif somewhat describes Garen and me.
next Wednesday again finally
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 1:32 pm EDT on May 3, 2013. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation.
Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. This disrupts the radio signals for as long as the flare is ongoing, and the radio blackout for this flare has already subsided.
This flare is classified as an M5.7-class flare. M-class flares are the weakest flares that can still cause some space weather effects near Earth.
Increased numbers of flares are quite common at the moment, as the sun’s normal 11-year activity cycle is ramping up toward solar maximum, which is expected in late 2013.
The ratio of males to females in my “Masculinity and Femininity” course remains only 1 to 5, despite the fact that the course gives equal attention to each gender. Males encouraged to enroll often respond, “I don’t need another semester of male-bashing.” … These students, like most other American males, usually know about only one side of feminism, the social-political side.
They know feminism raises fundamental social and political questions, questions about justice and equality and power for women—which necessarily involve criticism of male dominance, of male attitudes, of men. … Yet for the most part they—again, in company with most males, have not yet begun to hear the second set of questions posed by feminism, the personal-psychological-spiritual ones that call for an honest probing of men’s needs and aspirations, as well as women’s, and imply empathy and compassion for both.
Some of these questions are: Why do you define manhood as being tough, in control, in charge, superior to what is non-male, detached—even from your own feelings? If that’s what it means, do you really want to be a man?
