I had a discussion in another forum today where I was told to move to a communist country after schooling someone in American and Presidential history.  After that it rapidly degraded to the point where I wanted to apologize and offer them a Brawndo.  *sigh*

Sometimes everyone needs a Brawndo.

Ahn Myong-Chol witnessed many horrors as a North Korean prison camp guard, but few haunt him like the image of guard dogs attacking school children and tearing them to pieces. Ahn, who worked as a prison camp guard for eight years until he fled the country in 1994, recalls the day he saw three dogs get away from their handler and attack children coming back from the camp school.

A team of weaponry gurus and researchers (including a LOTR and Hobbit armor specialist) has designed what can only be described as Batman's perfect Batsuit. Behold the majesty.

From FaceBook:  A Mighty Girl's page:

Many people are familiar with the famous case of Rosalind Franklin, the British scientist who first discovered the helix shape of DNA by using her knowledge of x-ray diffraction techniques to take the first photo of DNA. Without her permission, fellow researcher Maurice Wilkins later showed her photo to James Watson and Francis Crick, who were also trying to determine the structure of DNA. Franklin's photo allowed them to deduce the structure and, shortly thereafter, they published a series of articles about the discovery, only mentioning Franklin's contributions in a footnote. While Watson, Crick and Wilkins received the Nobel Prize in 1962 for their contributions to science, Franklin had passed away due to cancer four years prior and was not eligible for the award.

While Franklin has become increasingly recognized for her immense contributions to molecular biology, even today, students everywhere learn the story of Watson and Crick's discovery but few are taught about the critical contributions of Rosalind Franklin to understanding the nature of DNA. Franklin's story remains one of the most famous and egregious examples of a female scientist being denied credit for her work due to sexism but, as this fascinating infographic illustrates, there are unfortunately many other examples from throughout history.

To learn more, National Geographic ran a profile piece, which included several of the women featured in this graphic, on "six female researchers who did groundbreaking work — and whose names are likely unfamiliar for one reason: because they are women" at http://bit.ly/1dzb22J  

Now, we can help these women's important contributions to science be known. If you'd like to introduce your children to the stories of remarkable female scientists, we feature many scientist biographies for both children and teens in our "Scientists" section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/history-biography/biography?cat=209  

For stories both real-life and fictional of girls and women confronting gender discrimination and prejudice, visit our "Gender Discrimination" section at http://www.amightygirl.com/books/social-issues/prejudice-discrimination?cat=69  

If you want to encourage your own budding scientist, check out our blog post: “Ignite Her Curiosity: Toys for Sparking Your Mighty Girl’s Interest in Science” at http://www.amightygirl.com/blog/?p=2578  or visit our entire STEM toy collection at http://www.amightygirl.com/toys/toys-games/science-math  

Thanks to the Women Rock Science Tumblr page for sharing this wonderful image (http://womenrockscience.tumblr.com/

Finally! Check it out. This book is full of fantastic stories about a world where a very few people gain special abilities when they come of age. One of those stories is mine. :)
