It Is What It Is

WHAT ABOUT US?

I’ve heard this song playing on the radio.

It was’t until last night’s VMA Awards and today that I went searching for the video. P!nk has always had serious, impacting messages to share in her songs.

This is another example at a time when it’s most needed.

A protest song!

Brights - Die Natur des Zweifels

Sloterdijks Begutachtung der Gegenwart klingt mit einem kulturkonservativen Mollakkord aus. (Montage: Suhrkamp / imago/ Stephan Wallocha)

Peter Sloterdijk zählt zu einer kleinen Schar öffentlicher Intellektueller in Deutschland, die mit ihren Äußerungen polarisieren, Widerspruch auf sich ziehen und Debatten auslösen. Nun hat der Philosoph ein neues Werk veröffentlich, in dem es um Glaubens- und Unglaubensversuche geht.

Von Martin Bauer | Deutschlandfunk

Manchmal tritt Peter Sloterdijk, der für “Vertikalspannung” plädiert, das heißt für Rangordnung und Statusbewusstsein, bescheiden auf. Dann stellt er sich als Autor “philosophischer Arbeiten” vor. Allerdings nimmt Sloterdijk ein ganz eigenes, um nicht zu sagen: eigenwilliges Verständnis von Philosophie für sich in Anspruch. Seine Arbeiten beschreibt er als die Überführung der Metaphysik in eine neue Disziplin: sie heißt “Allgemeine Immunologie”. Diese Immunologie liefert ein Modell von Wissen, mit dem Sloterdijk die metaphysische Tradition überwinden will.

Wo Metaphysik war, soll Immunologie werden

Metaphysik war nach antikem Verständnis ein Fach, das sich…

Something is lupine in the state of Denmark. After two largely wolf-free centuries, researchers say that a pair of the animals has moved into west Jutland, and that cubs are almost certainly on the way.

Something is lupine in the state of Denmark. After two largely wolf-free centuries, researchers say that a pair of the animals has moved into west Jutland, and that cubs are almost certainly on the way.
Over the past few years, four solitary male wolves have been sighted roaming the area’s woods and farmland. CCTV footage from last autumn suggested that at least one of them had been joined by a companion, and DNA evidence from wolf scat now confirms it, the Copenhagen Post reports….

Feel Good Sunday: Everyone Is Laughing Except Stable Owners After Dad Innocently Gives Horse A Haircut


Straight from the Horse's Heart

Source: ReShareWorthy

Equine Hairdressers Beware

Sammy the horse lives at a rescue facility that takes care of farm animals needing rehabilitation. But when the owner of the stables came in to the check on the horses, she found Sammy had gotten a haircut, that is anything but flattering!

Everyone at the barn was up in arms after then saw the hilarious haircut this horse got from a dad who thought he was being helpful!

So my dad calls me the other day, says he got in trouble at the barn for cutting a horses hair and everyone’s pissed off. I felt bad for him until I got this picture from my mother.

Needless to say, Ellen (the barn owner) was not happy and neither was anyone else in the barn, so she wrote a stern note as warning: “Please!! No scissors!! Ellen is not happy…All horses will have manes, bridle…

Why Everything Negative You Think About Pit Bulls Is Wrong


Why Everything Negative You Think About Pit Bulls Is Wrong

By Kate Hogan

People who aren’t familiar with them describe pit bulls as a lot of things — mostly negative. But as PEOPLE Pet Vet Dr. Evan Antin explains above, pit bulls are actually “some of the sweetest, most loyal, special, amazing dogs.”

While some people breed pit bulls specifically to use as fighting dogs, the truth, Dr. Antin says, is that “99.999 percent of the pit bulls you see in the rescues and shelters are super sweet.” In fact, Chihuahuas are actually more aggressive as a breed than pit bulls — they just don’t have that extra strength that comes with being a big dog.
If you’re at a shelter and considering a pit bull, there are simple ways to tell if he or she might be overly aggressive. Hear more on that from Dr. Antin in the Clip.
