Cyber harassment study reveals the unsurprising!
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…

That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.

"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!" 
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
"Wait, what?"

Blood Test May Help Gauge Psychosis RiskA study led by Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill researchers represents an important step forward in the accurate diagnosis of people who are experiencing the earliest stages of psychosis.Psychosis includes hallucinations or delusions that define the development of severe mental disorders such as schizophrenia. Schizophrenia emerges in late adolescence and early adulthood and affects about one in every 100 people. In severe cases, the impact on a young person can be a life compromised, and the burden on family members can be almost as severe.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/09/blood-test-may-help-gauge-psychosis-risk

September 14, 2014 - Indian Peafowl or Blue Peafowl (Pavo cristatus)
Requested by: ninelanterns
Found in India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, these birds are members of the pheasant family. The male’s upper tail coverts, called a “train” can be up to six feet long. The peacock raises and fans these feathers out in a display to attract peahens. Peafowl eat insects, fruits, leaves, seeds, and small reptiles and mammals. They fly into trees to roost, but otherwise spend most of their time on the ground. The Indian Peafowl is the national bird of India.
