People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.
This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

this is legitimately the most embarrassing picture i have seen ever in my life
the story behind this photo was: she actually cut her foot, and having a great sense of humor, posed for this photo.

Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to #SaveTheReef: http://www.SaveTheReef.org.au
Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead.
like dugongs. they’re mad important and live on the reef
Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. The agency charged with "the protection, wise use, understanding and enjoyment of the Great Barrier Reef in perpetuity" has allowed it to be sold out for short-term profits.
Late yesterday, they granted a permit to dump five million tonnes of dredge spoil inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
This destructive project is now allowed to go-ahead - unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court. Click here to learn more, and help fund the legal challenge to save our Reef:

WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES?? THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!!
SPREAD THE WORD! SAVE THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!
yo, guess what gang? if you’re not into donating money without any reward, have I got the album for you.
$1 a song, or $10 the album, all downloaded off bandcamp, moolah going direct to the reef fighting fund.
it’s got artists such as John Butler, Cat Empire, Missy Higgins, The Bamboos, etc. it’s pretty fucking sick, ay?
go check that shit out. save the reef and find a new aussie indie band or artist to adore
so shit’s just gotten worse
in addition to the coal port, now there’s a huge gas export terminal proposed for Abbot Point
so that’s happening. so we need more hands on deck because the government is not listening to us, so we need to make the noise just a teensy bit louder.
Fuckin greedy rich ass old people need to STOP
BIG NEWS HOMIES!
UNESCO has created a platform on which you can vote to keep the reef safe! UNESCO being the group in which the reef is classified as a world heritage site!
GO! VOTE! POWER! IMPORTANT! ACTION! GO GO GO!
this would be a massive spanner in the dredging works!
