Raleigh looking at Mako

#to fight monsters we created soulmates

sometimes i think about mako’s reaction this this whole situation (the bilingual stubbly supportive golden retriever situation) and i laugh and laugh and laugh because if anyone has mused on the many consequences on drift partnership it’s mako mori being as it pretty much informs her ENTIRE LIFE even if she didn’t want to be a pilot ‘more than anything’ it’s still the underlying relationship of every important person in her life the good (tams and stacks) the bad (hansens v1.0) and the ugly (hansens v2.0) all her friends are either part of a drift pairing or study drift pairing or work to facilitate drift pairings’ safe to say she’s read up on the subject and she KNOWS to pilot Danger she has to pair up and she KNOWS if this unseen becket person is being brought in that he’s going to be her drift partner and just considering all the possibile styles of human that she’s prepared to accept in order to pilot and this guy turns up? it’s like the universe said ok mako we know we’ve given you a bad deal: the world kind of ended before you really got a chance to enjoy it and then we took your parents and then we gave your new dad a terminal illness so yeah fair enough you’re heavy in the minus column but here WE GOT YOU A PRESENT HE’S BRAVE AND TRUE AND LOVES YOU LIKE THE SUN MOON AND STARS TOGETHER AND HE’S TALL AND WELL-SHAPED AND HE’S A LITTLE BIT BROKEN BUT STILL GOOD YEAH STILL GOOD (and oh. no. now i’ve created an AU where mako is stitch claiming her little broken stacker and raleigh family don’t look at me) (oh noooooooooo) (tags from harrietvane)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

The most productive people work for 52 minutes at a time, then break for 17 minutes before getting back to it.

The employees with the highest productivity ratings, in fact, don’t even work eight-hour days. Turns out, the secret to retaining the highest level of productivity over the span of a workday is not working longer—but working smarter with frequent breaks.

"

The makers of a productivity app examine their user data to extract “the rule of 52 and 17.” This, of course, is nothing new – previous productivity studies of elite violinists have found that the best of them work in 90-minute chunks separated by 20-minute breaks.

Pair with some handy tips on how to master the pace of being productive, but don’t forget that presence is a greater art than productivity

I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualize women, or when school and the government sexualize women. But the second a woman is in control, and sexualizes herself willingly, it’s wrong and disgusting.
