And how to make your city a contender.
…apropos of nothing, this pops up on my dashboard.
Celebrities and photographers come together to raise awareness of destructive deep-sea fishing in the North East Atlantic. By taking amazing photos of famouses hugging fish.

Denis Rouvre is a French photographer. Born in 1967, he lives and works in Paris.
Of course I had to reblog a photo of Scully holding an eel!
I find this somewhat difficult to believe; were there really 40 million cable subscribers for the Thrilla in Manila in 1975?
Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, is testing unmanned drones to deliver goods to customers, according to Chief Executive Jeff Bezos.
The drones, called Octocopters, could deliver packages weighing up to 2.3kg to customers within 30 minutes of them placing the order, he said.
However, he added that it could take up to five years for the service to start.
The US Federal Aviation Administration is yet to approve the use of unmanned drones for civilian purposes.
The terrifying prospect to me, and to many mothers, of “late-term” abortion bans, is that pregnancies which are terminated after 20 weeks are almost all wanted pregnancies in which something horrible has occurred or been discovered. (And, in those cases where the baby is unwanted, there are almost certainly serious problems in the woman’s life that have led to the delay in getting an abortion sooner.) So, in a situation of supreme horror, the fetus might die, but the mother might be forced to carry the dead fetus inside her and have labor induced, to struggle in pain and blood to bring her dead baby into the world. She would feel the liquid inside her, and the lax ligaments, and all the other things she felt in pregnancy, but she would know the baby was dead.
It’s interesting that this is taking place in my hometown.
I’d lived in Austin for many years before I managed to get to Arturo’s when it was open. It’s what I imagined an Austin coffeeshop would look like. The Sonic Youth album Washing Machine is on the PA, which totally completes the 90s vibe. #Austin #nostalgia (at Arturo’s Bakery & Cafe)
