Television needs shows like The Legend Of Korra. To start, it has one of the most well defined casts of females in children’s television, and they’re featured in stories that appeal to an audience far larger than the advertisers’ target. Both Avatar and Korra tackle real political, philosophical, and personal issues in ways that make the lessons accessible and enjoyable for a huge range of viewers, and it would be a true shame to lose this series because of mishandling by the network. Having seen the next episode (which was originally supposed to air tonight), I can say that this season is even more ambitious than we initially presumed, and while we’re past the halfway point of this season, the storyline of Zaheer and the Bad Benders is building to something that can’t be contained in just five more episodes. The writers are playing the long game here, and they shouldn’t be rained out when they’re performing this well.

—Oliver Sava in his review of “The Terror Within” for the AVClub. His reviews for Korra this season have been excellent and this is his best one yet, and contains good omens for next week’s episode, which he apparently got as a screener. (via dongbufeng)

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information,
including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.


wow. I’ve never seen someone go in so cleanly before. 



That was beautiful.

Stop following blogs about learning Korean. You’ve already started learning Portuguese when you weren’t supposed to and basically abandoned French. You need to get a move on with your Polish as well. And you have to keep up your German and Spanish. NO. KOREAN. BLOGS.
