Cepheid Variables are very luminous stars, 500 to 300,000 times greater than the Sun, with short periods of change that range from 1 to 100 days. They are pulsating variables that expand and shrink dramatically within a short period of time, following a specific pattern. Astronomers can make distance measurements to a Cepheid by measuring the variability of its luminosity, which makes them very valuable to the science.

Other pulsating variables include RR Lyrae, short period, older stars that are not as large as Cepheids; and RV Tauri stars, supergiants with greater light variations. Long-period pulsating variables include the Mira, which are cool red supergiants with large pulsations; and Semiregular, which are red giants or supergiants with longer periods that can range from 30 to 1000 days. One of the best-known Semiregular Variables is Betelgeuse. Irregular pulsating variables have also been identified. These are usually red supergiants, but very little study has been done on them.

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

"The amount of posts on this site that are like ‘ALL GIRLS HOT MOST BOYS UGLY’ is disgusting and if you reblog any of them without any sort of commentary, never ever claim yourself to be a proponent of body positivity or anything like it." - commanderabutt​

This is why people won’t take feminism seriously. 

Listen up feminists!!

Why is the lockdown in New Mexico hush hush? Why are police being told to shoot people if they leave their homes?

Cop fires at minivan full of kids after traffic-stop scuffle in New Mexico

Watch the video to see how the situation unfolded. There are lots of negative comments blaming the mother for initially driving away, saying that she placed her kids in the situation.

But there is something sevearly troubling about the idea that American citizens are supposed to sit by patiently as police exercise blatant abuses of power. She is a CIVILIAN and he is an OFFICE OF LAW. Police officers are supposed to use their training to make sound judgement - not use their power, weaponry and arms to make clear to a car full of black children the price they pay for not strictly obeying men in uniform.

Considering how violently the officers treated the family members - it absolutely makes sense that they reacted the way they did. They felt UNSAFE because they were being harassed by THE PEOPLE WHO ENFORCE LAW. Who was going to help them if things got out of hand? They already bashed in their window.

If you think people are obligated to trust and feel safe around police you don’t understand the lived experience of many people of color in this country.

Packed house at meeting on Albuquerque police violence

Kenneth Ellis II watched on Monday as hundreds of people poured into the City Council chambers to testify about police misconduct.

This time, it was clear he wouldn’t be alone.

Ellis’ own son, Kenneth Ellis III, is among the 23 men shot and killed by Albuquerque police since the beginning of 2010. He’s been attending council meetings ever since to testify, often with a handful of other regulars.

But he had plenty of company on Monday. The chambers were filled to capacity before the meeting even started, and the council heard five hours of testimony.

There were tears, jeers, shouts and even silence as people filed up to the podium to speak, two minutes at a time.

After weeks of protests – sparked largely by the shooting of James Boyd, a mentally ill homeless man caught camping illegally in the Sandia foothills – the council dedicated its regular meeting Monday to public testimony and discussion of the Albuquerque Police Department. About 175 people signed up to speak.

To every single person on Tumblr who acts like sitting around and yelling at people via their computer will change things:

I live in what is currently the most violent police state in the country. Out police department has shot and killed 27 people since 2010, more than Chicago or New York which is surprising given that both those cities are about five times as big as we are. This has been going on for four years, and nothing happened.

That is, nothing happened until very recently.

Following the murder of a homeless man because police reacted very poorly to the situation, protesters took to the streets. We had a huge march through town that ended with several arrests. This brought us national media attention, and an investigation from the Department of Justice. In their report, they found that the training methods for our police closely resembled those used by the Israeli Armed Forces. They identified around two hundred cases of excessive force and began planning to reform the police department.

There was another protest today in response to the no less than four fatal shootings since that DoJ investigation. And what was it that got us that investigation in the first place? Was it posting on facebook? Arguing with friends about whether or not APD was excessively violent? No. We got that report by taking to the streets and telling the entire country how bad things were here, and that it needed to stop.

That’s how you reform a system. Not by complaining on the internet, but by getting up and getting angry and actually doing something about it.
