Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has already been the most visible female hero in their film efforts, and soon she’ll appear in three more of Marvel Studios’ Phase 2 films. The character’s background has ben hinted at, and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada promised fans that at the end of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” fans would get an idea for the next phase of Natasha Romanoff’s story. The Black Widow has become Marvel’s first lady, a capable and multi-tiered character that proved she could hang with the big boys in “The Avengers.” Heck, she out espionaged the God of Lies, if that doesn’t solidly Natasha as comics’ biggest lady badass, I don’t know what does. Natasha deserves her own film…An exploration into Natasha’s past can reveal the black ops history of the Marvel Universe. With “Bucky” Barnes along for the ride, “Black Widow” could easily become Marvel’s own James Bond-like franchise, a super spy saga capable of shattering genre expectations.

Looks like Marc Buxton has changed his tune! (x)

Honestly, after reading Black Widow by Nathan Edmondson & Phil Noto, all arguments for why Natasha couldn’t possibly have a movie should be made invalid and burned in a fire.

From Russia with love: The doting father bear who can’t help cuddling his cub

This is the touching moment a baby bear gets swept up in a big cuddle - from her affectionate father.

What makes the photographs, taken at a zoo in eastern Russia, so fascinating is that most male bears have nothing to do with their cubs and leave the rearing to females.

But Balu is more hands-on than most with four-month-old daughter Diva and is content to give her a proper bear hug.

He even appears to be blowing a raspberry on her tummy while mother Masha looks on. Keepers at Primorsky Zoo in Russia were stunned by Balu’s unusual devotion to his daughter.

Zoo director Elena Aseidulina, 34, who took the photographs, said: ‘The father, against all laws of nature, is very caring and loving with the cubs.

‘Normally, it is the mother that looks after the children, but Balu is the exception.

‘He is a real example of a good father.’

Balu and Masha have been living at the zoo since 2002 after they were rescued by Russian militia from poachers. The pair have settled in well - and are clearly enjoying their roles as parents.

Keepers also noticed that Balu has taken on nearly all the traditional ‘female’ roles carried out by brown bears - including teaching their young about the dangers of the world.

Miss Aseidulina said: ‘Balu taught Diva to swim in the pool - she looked to her mother for help but Masha was totally calm and obviously trusted her “husband”.

‘Balu would hold her under water to teach her that swimming is an essential skill for a bear - but he always knew how long she could stay under for, and would pull her out and keep her safe.

‘When Masha is feeding Diva, 14-year-old Balu waits patiently for his turn to play with her.’

The zoo director added: ‘Once, I saw him patting the mother’s paw as if to say “Hurry up, it’s my turn to play!”’

‘It always takes my breath away when I see them playing like this.

‘It just makes you realise that these animals have the same feelings as we do. I wanted to take pictures to show others how touching and heartwarming these animals can be.’

BEARS, YOU GUYS.

3 percent of the decision-making in media comes from women. That means 97 percent of how women are portrayed is decided on by men.

Independent Lens, PBS
“Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” (via ihopeyoucontinue4ever)

It also means that 97 percent of how men are portrayed in media are decided on by men. Something to remind MRAs and their ilk of when they complain about the stereotype of men as inept slobs, bad fathers, etc in media and advertising.

Men have the power. So when we men are shat on by the powers that be you don’t get to try and blame women for that.

Vaccine Infographic by Leon Farrant.
I often speak with patients who tell me that they do not wish to be vaccinated because they do not see the point, that it is a farce, that it can cause autism (it does not), despite educating and informing them of the reasons behind it. 
In the same way that people who did not grow up during the great wars of the mid-twentieth century have little frame of reference as to what the toll of total war can be, neither can a newer generation of people who have never seen the effects of polio, smallpox, and measles ravage humanity. For many people in the developed world, these are just distant, faded memories captured in the pages of medical textbooks. 
I sincerely hope that the understanding of why we vaccinate does not become lost over time, that people need not fall victim to these preventable diseases; otherwise, the suffering, the challenges, and the research that went into developing these vaccines were all for nothing.

Heosemys spinosa is an endangered species. 

punks almost dead

That is not a Heosemys Spinosa,its a Graptemys nigrinoda. 
they are in the low risk list, therefore, not endangered.

Punks not as almost dead as we thought.
