Beyonce Turned Down a Role in Beauty and the Beast

When #BillCondon was rounding out the cast for Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, he tried—and failed—to involve #Beyonce. He had worked with her before, when she played Deena Jones in his 2006 film Dreamgirls. To date, he's one of just two directors to put her in a musical—the first being Robert Townsend, who directed MTV's Carmen: A Hip Hopera. "Isn't that weird?" Condon recently asked Yahoo! Movies. "God, it seems crazy!"

Velcro on a stick

Common agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria)

Svartskog, Norway

Yet another species using hooks for seed dispersal, and so many seeds!

In summer this is a plant with lovely yellow flowers swaying on long inflorescences. Come autumn and seed dispersal, furry animals or humans wearing loopy fabrics will most definitely get acquainted with this species as they will stick to your pants or to the fur of your dog as small and annoying balls that you must rip out with hairs and fabric to free yourself from it.

Humanity as for quite some time now acknowledged this to be a most ingenious, fast and very safe way to solve so many of our everyday needs in the form of Velcro. As so many times before, and countless times to come, nature has found the best way to solve fundamental practical problems.

This is one of several plants growing alongside the road in the hill behind my home, and they seem to spread as the seeds are dispersed by people walking their dogs or just enjoying nature here. The locations I found them first have no such expansion, which proves very well how the hooked seeds in areas with a stable flow of humans and furry animals provide an efficient dispersal method.

If you’ve ever wanted to explore the Solar System, Google has got you covered. They’ve just released an awesome new set of maps that lets you zoom in on a variety of planets, dwarf planets, and moons.

Head on over to Google Maps Space and, if you click the three lines in the top left corner, you can select from a host of otherworldly bodies to explore. The images have been taken by a variety of spacecraft and orbiters, like the Cassini spacecraft, and stitched together for you to enjoy.

“Explore the icy plains of Enceladus, where Cassini discovered water beneath the moon's crust – suggesting signs of life,” Google said in a blog post.

“Peer beneath the thick clouds of Titan to see methane lakes. Inspect the massive crater of Mimas – while it might seem like a sci-fi look-a-like, it is a moon, not a space station.”

You can even explore the surface of Pluto. Google
The maps were assembled by astronomical artist Björn Jónsson, who put them together using imagery from NASA and the European Space Agency. In total there are a dozen worlds to explore, as well as the International Space Station (ISS).

Each body also includes labels, letting you pick out some areas of interest such as Valles Marineris on Mars – the largest canyon in the Solar System. Google got things a bit wrong at first, with the labels being off by about 180 degrees. At the time of writing the issue hasn't been fixed yet, but they said they were working on it.

Images for some worlds like Mars is a lot more detailed than others, as we’ve got a lot more data here. This allows you to zoom right down to the surface and see features with an almost Google Earth-like quality.

Others like Saturn’s moon Titan are a bit more tricky, as most of our data comes from radar imaging conducted by the Cassini spacecraft, however, you’ll still be able to spot some methane lakes and seas on this moon, the only place other than Earth with known bodies of liquid on the surface.

So if you’ve got some time to kill, go and check it out. Technology is really quite amazing, eh?

Arc volcano releases mix of material from Earth’s mantle and crust | #Geology #GeologyPage

Volcanoes are an explosive and mysterious process by which molten rock from Earth’s interior escapes back into the atmosphere. Why the volcano erupts — and where it draws its lava from — could help trace the lifecycle of materials that make up our planet.

NFL Update: More and More, NFL Becoming Women’s Game

The numbers certainly are eye-opening, but don’t come as a surprise to many. “We rule the world,” Ben said, smiling. “Ladies rule the world.”

Know more: https://goo.gl/TVwt4X

Wearing all of her Dallas Cowboys swag, Tamy Ben walked around AT&T Stadium before the season opener against the New York Giants last month. Like most in North Texas, she couldn’t wait to get in the stadium and get the 2017 NFL season underway. “I’ve been a Cowboys fan my entire life, ever since I was a little girl,” said Ben, a Fort Worth, Texas resident. “I am a true Cowboys fan.”

#Ben was one of thousands of female fans attending the Cowboys-Giants game that day, and is one of millions who enjoy the game on a weekly basis. Women fans make up almost half of the NFL fan base with more than 45 percent women identifying themselves as fans. Cowboys executive vice president #Charlotte Jones Anderson said #women account for more than 47 percent of their fan base.

Like if you Agree you should stand! Dislike if you feel otherwise!

It is what we were taught since we were young to respect america and the country itself. I'm disgusted as an american especially watching my favorite team disrespecting america. If they could only imagine the horrors people wen't through to make the country what it is today.

No matter what other people are doing it's up to you to take a stand and stand up. It's a disgrace to have to be talked into standing.

In a world in which meta-humans are more populous, where magic hid itself after humanity tried to kill it off, there are still communities that live on, using the old language, growing in urban centers, where most people are simply overlooked. In this world, resides a small, basic neighborhood known as Hell's Kitchen, within the city of New York. There the nights are still and silent...or so it seems. A lot of them are this time in age. There is fear in Hell's Kitchen. The devil can feel it flowing through the veins of those who walk the streets, the good and the bad. He heard it inhale and exhale in the midst of the cold nights. Yet he is unbound by these fears. The city unrolls like a carpet in front of him, above him, behind, below, to either side of him and he can feel its heart racing. He wishes he could say he was here for the view, but even that's too much of a lie, even for him to stomach. He loves the city, loves it deep down to the bones. He is unseeing, and yet, always watching...


"People often call me "fearless." I'd be lying if I said I really minded the title, but I'd also be lying if I admitted any truth to it at all. Everyone is afraid of something. Ask any of my friends, they'll tell you I'm a God-fearing man. While that's true, there are other, mortal things I am afraid of. I don't fear death--that should be a given. If death scared me at all, I wouldn't do what I do. Every night, I tread past death's door, the possibility of not coming home tomorrow is always clear in the back of my head. I'm not afraid of pain, defeat, or most things the everyman may hesitate when faced with...but I have my insecurities. My moments of doubt or hopelessness. I'm human. I still bleed. Sometimes, I simply ignore my fears; sometimes I go on and confront them. Whatever the trick may be in any given case, I can never allow myself give into them. I'm not as fearless as the press gives me credit for, but I do my damnedest not to show it. Fear, after all, does not eclipse courage. Courage comes from rising above your fears."


He listens to the city around him. While it would be considerably quiet to any regular person, the basic sounds of the city are uproarious to the devil's amplified hearing. If he didn't know how utilize his senses properly, every little sound would be deafening to his ears.


"I guess you could say I was a bit of a bookworm as a kid. My father wanted me to be successful in life. He didn't want me to end up like him. An "uneducated pug" he'd say to describe himself. Due to this, it also meant I wasn't allowed to go outside with the other kids. I was bullied in school. The other kids would call me "Daredevil" because of how cautious and shy I was. Until the one time I wasn't. I was walking home from school one day when I noticed an old, blind man crossing the street. At the same time, the driver of a cargo truck carrying toxic waste through New York City traffic wasn't paying attention to the road. I ran towards the man and shouted after him. Deaf too, apparently. So I bolted towards him, jet-fuled by years of pent up fighting spirit. The trucks tires screeched and stopped at a skid, although I was still hit by the truck head on. Barrels of the waste flew out of the back and spilt all over the road. The last thing I ever saw was a glimpse of the sky and the glow of radiation. I was blinded instantly. Later there would be...compensations. The chemical isotope rewired my remaining senses over time--amplified them to superhuman performance."


"At a young age, my Mother abandoned my Father and I. I don't have much memory of her...but my father? My father, Battlin' Jack Murdock, was a prize fighter who was forced into doing some pretty bad stuff for some pretty bad men. He was a worn, small time boxer, who when told to, refused to take a dive during his last boxing match because he wanted his blind son to hear the crowd cheering his name. Later that night, he was shot by a couple of gang members. The man that pulled the trigger was a man named Slade. Didn't have too much information on him. The man who gave the order was Roscoe Sweeney, who called himself "The Fixer."


"My world had become a much darker place when my father was taken from me in a cruel twist of fate. I had to mourn the wrongful loss of my father whilst trying to find light in the darkness. Eventually an old man named "Stick" would find me in the orphanage. He taught me how to control and hone my senses. He taught me how to fight. He showed me everything I was capable of. I hated him, but he taught me well. After he abandoned me, I began my hunt for the Fixer in search of justice and answers. I located him and his followers, including Slade, and pursued them in a chase through a subway station after chasing them away from their headquarters. Before I could get Sweeney to confess, he died of a heart attack. I'd say he got lucky. Slade would deal with life in prison. Once I got a little taste of crime fighting, I decided to put my abilities to good use."


The devil rests nimbly on a gargoyle, where he stalks his prey and tunes his ears into the city. The citizens of Hell's Kitchen see the dark silhouette of a man in the crescent moonlight, save for the two horns protruding from the mask he dons. He listens to the city in case its people call for help. He puts his own life on the line to defend those who can't defend themselves. A man like this does more in a single evening than one true, fashionable hero does in a week.


"This is Hell's Kitchen. It raised me, practically. This city let me breathe its air. Sure, I've lost things in its streets...my father, my eyes, and occasionally...my religion. I'm not sure which hurts me the most anymore, but I've gained things too. "Super friends"...a different kind of family. My lawfirm. When I put on the mask, when I hide my eyes, the ones I forgive this city for taking, that's when the devil comes out. That's when I feel I've lost whatever moral religion I have left. I constantly remind myself that where ever I walk, I walk with my father's composed and fearless demons, because my father had devils of his own, sure enough. He brought the demons with him into the ring and they backed him through every punch, through every win, every loss, and his ghosts were always there watching...waiting...cheering."


A dark and dirty city bleeds and a hero is born in the oozing wound...


"My name is Matthew Murdock, but Hell's Kitchen knows me by another name..."

Did Kaepernick take a knee for "sentencing reform?"
The National Football League has agreed to endorse sentencing reform, but the owners are also mulling over a rule that would mandate that players stand for the national anthem.

Sure, sentencing reform is important, but I'm pretty sure Black Lives Matter is concerned about more than that. What about racial profiling, harassment and the black lives lost in the process of an arrest?
