WTF I Care About

Drop me something...   Drop those tasty subs here   The name is Stephen. I am attending university and study microbial biotechnology. I am kind of an off and on tumblr user. I am not really on here for any particular reason, just enjoy the content. I like anything science and nature. In my spare time I like to go skiing and paragliding, or if the snow is shit and the wind is bad I like to stay in and read or maybe play a little bit of minecraft. Love to meet new people so feel free to say hello. Happy surfing, Stephen.

Looking in the mirror from 898,410,414 miles away…
NASA has just released a raw edition of Friday’s photo of Earth and the moon, as seen from the Cassini spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn.
From out there, we look like stars. 
Just a tip, NASA: We’re gonna have to give it a better name than “N00213959.jpg”. Maybe “Pale Blue Sparkle”?
(hi-res at NASA website, a more processed version is sure to come… stay tuned)

IT JUST GOT REAL

What good news for the world.

Remember when this made the news weeks ago and US news outlets didn’t find it worth reporting?

BLESS THIS

This should have like, 1,000% more notes.
This is amazing.

Are you telling me that those Ryan Gosling cupcakes have 45,000 notes and this post hasn’t even reached 5,000?

Relevant.

And it was on this day that this appeared on my dash, and I said “Damn, finally some good news!” and reblogged the hell out of it.

Open you’re eyes people. Our internet privacy is being taken away before our very eyes. #stopcispa

Why doesn’t this have more notes? :/ I think being aware the government can access your personal info anytime is pretty damn important.

NYPD Makes 5 Million Stop And Frisks, 86% Victims Were Black or Latino

he NYPD is set to record its 5 millionth stop-and-frisk encounter under Mayor Bloomberg on March 14th, according to an analysis by the New York Civil Liberties Union based on an extrapolation of Police Department data.

About 4.4 million of the stop-and-frisk encounters, or 88 percent, were of innocent people as they did not result in an arrest or summons. More than 86 percent of people stopped were black or Latino.

To stop a person lawfully, a police officer must have reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing or is about to commit a crime.

In 2002, Mayor Bloomberg’s first year in office, NYPD officer conducted 97,296 street stops. By 2011, the number of stops spiked to 685,724 – an increase of 605 percent. Last year, the number of stops dipped to 533,042. Still, 473,300 of the stops, or 89 percent, resulted in no arrest or ticket. And 87 percent of people stopped were black of Latino.

The 5 millionth stop-and-frisk encounter occurs on the eve of a landmark trial in Floyd v. City of New York – a federal class-action lawsuit filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights challenging the constitutionality of the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices, which is set to begin on Monday.

The remedy phase of the trial also involves Ligon v. City of New York, a lawsuit filed by the NYCLU, The Bronx Defenders, LatinoJustice PRLDEF and the law firm of Shearman & Sterling LLP challenging the NYPD’s enforcement of Operation Clean Halls – a citywide program within the Police Department’s stop-and-frisk regime that allows police officers to patrol in and around certain private apartment buildings.

In the Ligon case, U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled that the NYPD has a pattern and practice of illegally stopping innocent people in public areas outside thousands of private apartment buildings in the Bronx. She also ruled that she would consider specific remedies at the same time that she considers possible remedies being proposed by the plaintiffs in Floyd.
