it’s really not a coincidence that winter soldier is being talked about as the best marvel movie yet
when you give women and poc the same importance and development as you do your white males, amazing things happen
#like you would NOT have this movie without natasha sam maria and nick#chris sebastian and redford were amazing in it but to have women and poc be PIVOTAL to the plot#and be actual fleshed out important characters is just#!!!!!! idek how to describe it#but it also makes me sad because this movie PROVED that it’s totally possible to have more diversity#it’s just that people aren’t willing to include it in their films
Over the years, Microsoft has started to become greedy with their Microsoft Office packages, previously, it was pre-included in Windows computers, and then, they were separately sold. Now, they’re yearly subscriptions (like an Anti-virus)
It’s time to make a stand! (And no, don’t even pirate their software.)
LibreOffice - a software that’s very similar to Microsoft Office BUT THIS ONE’s FREE!
This has helped me big time during my time in college. Saved me big bucks & not getting into trouble by downloading a cracked Microsoft Office copy.
I highly recommend this to everyone.
this is actually easier to use than Word tbh
Wow I was just considering to buy that Office 2013 package until I saw this post. Good stuff! +1
I literally JUST cracked and bought my year of Microsoft Office -_-
But yeah they are just going really far from what they used to be.
Does libre office save in doc format though? I used to use another program that did but websites wouldn’t recognize it as doc :/
^ Yes, you can save as a .docx file & you can open files made through Word as well.
Been using Libre Office/Open Office for years now. I have honestly not used Microsoft Office since 2003. Microsoft is on it’s way to collapse. Windows is going down the tubes in quality, and Open Source Operating systems are becoming more prevalent, they blew it with Windows Mobile, Xbox One looks like a total failure with a lot less power than the PS4. And now this with Microsoft Office. Use LibreOffice, save yourself money and use a product that is more often regularly maintained and updated than it’s Microsoft counterpart.
I’ve been usingit for years now. It’s a great alternative to Microsoft Office. Can save in nearly any major format. Plus I find it easier to use than Microsoft Office. Haven’t really used that since 03 when they had it in my high school computers.
I used to use OpenOffice because I refused to by word. Thankfully my college gave it to is for free but I will always recommend alternatives.
Or, you could buy office, and help stop the company from laying off hundreds of people
Don’t support business practices you don’t like because someone will loose their job. You are the consumer! You decide what you approve of and what you don’t.
I saw a few masterposts going around tumblr and decided to make one. A lot of these links are helpful for High School as well! Enjoy and please tell me if you have problems with any link.
This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.
Because wow, that was patronizing.
I loved that scene in Elementary.
1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.
2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.
3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”
You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.
Popular media portrays men patronizing women constantly & it’s considered neutral, but a woman patronizing a man is enough to flip people into incandescent rage. Not saying that’s what OP is feeling, but a woman patronizing a man is definitely a hot trigger.
I also want to point out that throwing and breaking things is one of the ways many domestic abusers (statistically likely to be men trying to intimidate/control/harm women) exert dominance and threaten & control their partners. There is nothing like a display of violence and destruction to remind a person that said violence and destruction could be visited upon their person, you know? So there is ABSOLUTELY a power differential at play here, even if they aren’t romantically/sexually involved and even if the writers didn’t intend for there to be. So Joan responding in kind, in a calm demonstrative way, is a way of her taking control of a charged situation and pointing out that yes, he’s acting like a childish dick throwing a temper tantrum and she isn’t going to let that slide/excuse him/clean up his mess for him.
edgeworth is so inspirational
