I noticed that some people already reposted these photos I took of the Transgender Day of Remembrance installation on the Syracuse University campus. I know all the people involved with putting it together and designing it and they all worked very hard.

On Friday November 15th these signs were vandalized- ripped out of the ground, stomped, and spit on. I, and many others, were shocked…though sadly I probably shouldn’t be at this point. But I thought people would at least respect a memorial.

Please reblog this so that people will still see these two signs- and there’s nothing vandals can do about that. If you are local, please come to the Transgender Day of Remembrance vigil this Wednesday, 6 PM, at city hall to show that the good people of Syracuse support trans people, despite what haters try to make us believe. 

Thank you.

Typhoon Haiyan is a Category 5 storm, the strongest typhoon of 2013 and said to be the “most powerful ever” to make landfall (with winds near 195-200 mph). Perspective: Superstorm Sandy was at 95mph when it hit New Jersey; Hurricane Katrina at 129mph when it hit land.

The victims need all the help they can get. Cities have been leveled, buildings made of concrete were destroyed by strong winds and storm surges. Communications have yet to be reestablished in most of the areas affected by the typhoon. The full picture left behind by Haiyan has yet to be established but the devastation reported on television is already extensive. The government is bracing for large-scale relief operations. Virtually 1/3 of the country has been ravaged by this natural disaster. And we need help.

Please reblog and add other details I might’ve missed! 

The situation is ongoing, and communication through disaster zones is a difficult process. I spent a good part of my day yesterday trying to research the typhoon’s impact on the Philippines and was frustrated by the level of cross-pollination and conjecture and repetition and regurgitation there was in most news I could find. A clear figure of casualties has not been arrived at as yet, but all predictions have been dire. I’m a little wary of how readily most major media outlets piggybacked off each other with the ‘10,000 estimated dead’ quote; it reeks of trigger-happy misery porn.
Regardless, the scale of the destruction cannot be understated. Typhoon Haiyan completely missed the two more well-developed and metropolitan divisions of the Philippines - Luzon and Mindanao - and smacked into Eastern Samar, hurtled through the entirety of the Visayas (including densely populated Cebu), and exited west via Busuanga. The typhoon has now moved on from the Philippines, and while this means that the damage can be assessed more efficiently, it is in the immediate wake of these storms that communities suffer the worst. Without water, food, shelter, and proper medical attention, many more people will die. It isn’t even hyperbole when I say that Tacloban is an utter clusterfuck. The storm ravaged a lot of rural areas that are still recovering from last month’s earthquake. People have been displaced and need to be rehabilitated and rehomed.
The post above provides several links that will point you in the right direction to various means of donating funds and/or resources through aid agencies like the MSF, Oxfam, and Red Cross. I understand that Australia has pledged a $10 million aid package, which is fantastic. This disaster has been huge on public visibility, which is also fantastic. Now it’s time to do something about it. We drummed up support in 2004 for the Boxing Day tsunami, in 2010 for Haiti, and we can do the same now.
All this being said, Typhoon Haiyan has also Vietnam (at a reduced, but still dangerous, Category 1), and grazed Southern China today - tens of thousands were evacuated in Hainan - but they were spared the most devastating of conditions. Keep informed on those too.


13 Nutrition Lies That Made The World Sick And Fat (excerpts)

1. Eggs Are Bad For Your Health

The truth is that despite being high in cholesterol, eggs don’t really raise the bad cholesterol in the blood. In fact, eggs primarily raise the “good” cholesterol (1234). 

Despite all the warnings about eggs in the past few decades, studies show that they are NOT associated with heart disease (567).

2. A Calorie is A Calorie

All calories are not created equal. Different foods go through different metabolic pathways and have varying effects on hunger, hormones and health.

3. Saturated Fat is Unhealthy

A massive study published in 2010 looked at data from a total of 21 studies that included 347,747 individuals. They found absolutely no association between saturated fat consumption and the risk of heart disease (19).

The truth is that saturated fat raises HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. It also changes the LDL cholesterol from small, dense LDL (very, very bad) to Large LDL, which is benign (2223242526).

6. Coffee is Bad for You

Coffee drinkers:

  • Have up to a 67% lower risk of Type II diabetes (5051).
  • Are at a much lower risk of getting Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (5253).
  • Have up to an 80% lower risk of liver diseases like cirrhosis (5455).

Caffeine also helps to mobilize fatty acids from the fat tissues, boost metabolism and increase exercise performance by an average of 11-12% (565758).

7. Meat is Bad For You

While it is true that processed meat is associated with all sorts of diseases, the same is not true for unprocessed red meat. A massive review from 2010 that looked at data from 20 studies with a total of 1,218,380 individuals revealed that unprocessed red meat had no significant association with either cardiovascular disease or type II diabetes (62).

9. Refined Seed- and Vegetable Oils Are Healthy

[S]eed - and vegetable oils are associated with a significantly increased risk of heart disease…(7778798081).

It’s important to keep in mind that this does NOT apply to other plant oils like coconut oil and olive oil, which are low in Omega-6 and extremely healthy.

10. Low-Carb Diets Are Ineffective and Downright Harmful

Low-carb diets are the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight and reverse metabolic disease. It is pretty much a scientific fact at this point.

12. Sugar is Bad Because it Contains “Empty” Calories

This applies to fructose from added sugars, NOT the natural sugars found in fruits. When consumed in excess, added sugar is associated with multiple diseases, including obesity, heart disease, type II diabetes and even cancer (109110111112113).

Sugar is probably the single worst ingredient in the modern diet.
