One Eyed Jaguar Killing Caiman in A Spectacular Attack!

On August 25, photographer Paul Donahue got a call: A large male jaguar had been spotted on the hunt in central Brazil’s Tres Irmãos River.Donahue, who tracks jaguar sightings for ecotourism operator Southwild in Mato Grasso, arrived at the scene to find an animal named Mick Jaguar hidden in thick grass, stalking a nearby group of caiman yacaré, a crocodile relative native to South America.
"Over the next 30 to 40 minutes we watched the jaguar very slowly slink along in the direction of the yacaré," he wrote in his field notes. (Read "Path of the Jaguars" in National Geographic magazine.)The largest of South America’s cats, jaguars are good swimmers and regularly prey on fish, turtles, and caimans. They also eat larger animals such as deer, peccaries, capybaras, and tapirs…

The Pirate Bay, one of the most popular sites for file sharing, once again thwarted authorities trying to shut it down.
After briefly disappearing because its Caribbean domain name, thepiratebay.sx, was seized by authorities, the site popped back into action on thepiratebay.ac, according to The Verge and originally reported by Torrent Freak.
The “.ac” is the country code, top-level domain of an isolated volcanic island almost 1,000 miles from the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean, called Ascension Island. (Photo: Wikemedia Commons)
are we absolutely sure the pirate bay isnt run by a james bond villain
HOW IS THIS REAL, THIS IS SOME CARTOON SHIT

Although these supposed advocates of women’s equality may be well intentioned, it frustrates me to see them wholeheartedly buying into the sexist way our society assigns value to different professions. In our society, fields that have been traditionally occupied by men (including engineering) are seen as much more prestigious and worthy of financial compensation than those traditionally occupied by women (such as child care and social planning). It strikes me as highly suspect that only those performing “men’s work” are taken seriously, and it aggravates me to see this paradigm so rarely questioned. As a working industrial engineer, I benefit from this system. I’m well paid. Nobody belittles my career choice or makes negative assumptions about me because of it. Strangers knowing nothing more about me than my my job title say things like, “Wow, you must be really smart.” But what if I had taken my love of science and used it to inspire kids as an elementary school teacher? What if I took my organizational skills and became an office administrator or a secretary? What if several years from now I jump ship to become a stay at home mom? Why should I be afforded less respect?
— It is my hypothesis that if the current cultural push to include more women in STEM fields is successful, in the next twenty years we will see a gradual but dramatic tapering of salaries, as well as the general cultural cachet of sciences and engineering.
…my immediate reaction to that last comment was “But…we STEM grads have valuable skills! And are really…uh…crap.” Hellooo internalised sexism.
"While funneling more women into STEM fields may produce marginal gains, it actually leaves the underlying issue — male privilege — largely untouched."
