Cincinnati Public Library Makerspace provides free access to photo studio gear #celebratephotography
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/02/28/cincinnati-public-library-makerspace-provides-free-access-to-photo-studio-gear-celebratephotography/

As books are easier to buy and borrow in digital forms, public libraries are evolving and experimenting with new ways to stay relevant. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has one awesome idea for how to do so: the main branch of the library in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, features a makerspace that provides free access to tools for creative people — equipment that includes DSLRs and photo studio gear.

Because you're (probably) not the loser idiot you think you are.
We're all prone to a little self-loathing now and again, and sometimes that's a dark road that can only get worse. Thankfully, it's not too difficult to fight back if you can get yourself in the right mindset.

Slate: Obamacare Is Working Incredibly Well—Except Where Republicans Won’t Let It. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwgraRuCA
As Congress debated the merits of the Affordable Care Act in the months preceding its passage, red state Republicans vigorously insisted that the health insurance law wouldn't work. Five years later, the data is clear: They were sort of right! But only, it turns out, in the states where Republicans...

RIP Leonard Nimoy.

He was, and always shall be, our friend.

The Frisky: The Soapbox: Here’s Why Closing The Gender Wage Gap Is A White Feminist Issue. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwvJTAwyA
Patricia Arquette's Oscar acceptance speech imploring for wage equality was met with applause by her peers, including Meryl Streep. However, as The Frisky told you yesterday, her backstage interview -- which was reasonably referred to as "tone deaf" where racial politics are concerned -- attracted negative attention and response. To recap, this is what she said: "It's time for women. Equal means equal. The truth is the older women get, the less m...
