One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.
"The gender gap doesn’t exist"
"We don’t need feminism"
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"
I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.

Day 128 of 365 - Fall Out Boy, “From Now On We Are Enemies”
i’m just the man on the balcony singing
"nobody will ever remember me"
hey as a neuroscience major and someone who wants to study and research the human consciousness in the future, this post was a must!
MIND OVER MATTER
- if you believe you sleep well your performance improves
- scientists convince people their hands are rocks
- lying on a bed of nails without injury
- many people in one body
- yogi nearly stops heartbeat
- curing cancer just by thinking you are cured?
- the insane effects of hypnosis on some people
- meditation drys wet towels
- nocebo effect
- phantom pregnancy
WOW FINDINGS ON THE HUMAN BRAIN
- your brain makes decisions before you are even conscious of it
- finding out what cats see
- mental disorders and their brain scans
- mirror neurons: everyone can read minds
- the vegetative patient who could TALK to doctors
- learning how to RECORD your dreams
- loosing sleep can kill brain cells
- what do babies dream about?
- linked brains

Alright that’s all I got so far guys! Be sure to check back on my science section because as we progress further and further and have amazing cool new things, I’ll have new posts with more information :)
Feel free to add to this list also!
Toothless is so cute here.
HIS NOSTRILS ARE PINK ON THE INSIDES
YOU CAN SEE THE EDGES OF HIS SCALES
HE’S STILL COVERED IN DIRT AND SOOT FROM THE FIGHT
DREAMWORKS WHY ARE YOU SO AWESOME
how could you not want a toothless on your dash
can we talk about hiS EYES
u dun goofed
These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.
Isador & Ida Straus
The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.
When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.
A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”
why wasn’t the movie about them

You’ve seen his art before on tumblr, in google search gif sets (where I found some of these images) and facebook, but you likely don’t know the author of the art because people fail to give artists credit. Tsiaras’ work pops up on my dash constantly and has never been sourced as far as I’ve seen it. So here you go, tumblr. Meet the artist. Learn more in the links provided below.
"Alexander Tsiaras, Founder, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of TheVisualMD, has been called a "Digital Age Leonardo da Vinci". He is a technology innovator, whose roots are based in his art and science photojournalism background. Tsiaras has developed cutting edge scientific imaging software that enables him to scan and record the human body at every stage; from a single cell at the moment of conception, through the biological development of man and woman and he tells compelling stories of wellness and prevention with them. His images simply and compellingly explain health and illness in terms that anyone can understand. Most importantly, they give you a visual map to plan your own optimal Health!"
