I didn't know whether to put this in my Photography collection or not. :)

This article is just wrong.

To start with, trying to claim that Doctor Who isn't part of the "_real world_" is broken. The show has been running for decades, and our pop culture is steeped in it. It's as much a part of the real world as anything else.

But on to the crux of the article:

When I was a child, my Doctor was Jon Pertwee. He solved problems by thinking about them, and was quick to utter "I am a scientist." It was that line that stuck with me the most, and guided me into STEM.

My twin sister also watched with me, but she never saw a female doctor. She never saw women portrayed as intellectual authorities. She never saw someone she could relate to as being anything other than a sidekick. Even though she's just as smart as I am, she never saw someone whom she could relate to or emulate. My sister ended up being an office clerk.

If we want to make things equal in the real world, we need to tap into the imagination of all of the little girls while they are still children. They need to see themselves reflected as scientists and tech geniuses in media and pop culture.

Recorded in 1981, but unreleased until now!

Muttart at Sunset

This is an older shot (April 22, 2012) of the +Muttart Conservatory.

Processed with +darktable. I was going through some of my older shoots, when I found a folder I'd taken but not processed. I believe when I took this I was using UFRaw for processing, and I might not have posted it because I couldn't get the look I wanted then.

Waterton Lakes National Park

Last August we took a road trip to visit my parents, and we spent one night in Waterton on the way home. After breakfast K and I did a quick hike up to the Bear Hump, where I took this.

That's about the size of it.

I guess we really were looking at "what's in his heart" after all!

I've been concerned about this since the "leaked" footage so I wanted to find out more. I wouldn't want to support animal abuse. Seems to not be true.
