i didn’t even notice until halfway down the post when i read the “being the teacher with the robot leg” sign that i realized everyone is missing a limb. Biomedical Engineers are really outdoing themselves and it’s both fantastic and sometimes even glamorous.

Reclaiming Fitspo: Jackie Tonawanda

Born in New York in 1933, “The Female Ali” was a pioneer female heavyweight boxers.

Originally named Jackie Garrett, the Female Ali took on her mother’s maiden name around the same time that she sued the state of New York to be granted a boxing license, all in 1975. She eventually won this legal battle, becoming the first woman to be granted a license to box in New York state (alongside Cathy Davis and Marian Trimiar). 

She’s known to have only one officially documented fight: In 1979, she went against Diane Clark in Madison Square Garden. She lasted six rounds before eventually losing. Yet despite her poor official record, Tonawanda was well-known in the boxing and martial arts communities. The majority of her career took place in underground, unsanctioned fights.

Tonawanda was the first female boxer to become a member of Ring 8 (the Veterans Boxing Association) and to be inducted into their Hall of Fame, as well as the Madison Square Garden’s Hall of Fame. She has even been honored outside of the ring, thanks to her wide support for such charitable causes as Athletes Against Drunk Driving. 

Tonawanda passed away in 2009 after a long battle with colon cancer.

Feather Art by Chris Maynard

Jesus H. Frogsnoggler.

Oh look, copperbadge, more corvid art.

I won’t lie, in the last couple of days I have encountered more crows and bees than I’m comfortable ascribing to random chance or confirmation bias. I’m trying to work out what the universe is telling me, because those are some above-and-beyond levels of mystic animal, but so far all I got is “crows and bees”.

5 of 6 Syrian World Heritage sites ‘exhibit significant damage’

In war-torn Syria, five of six World Heritage sites now “exhibit significant damage” and some structures have been “reduced to rubble,” according to new high-resolution satellite image analysis by the nonprofit, nonpartisan American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The AAAS analysis, offering the first comprehensive look at the extent of damage to Syria’s priceless cultural heritage sites, was completed in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology’s Penn Cultural Heritage Center (PennCHC) and the Smithsonian Institution, and in cooperation with the Syrian Heritage Task Force. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the analysis provides authoritative confirmation of previous on-the-ground reports of damage to individual sites. Read more.
