Saturday, March 4th, 2017

we-are-star-stuff:

Herd immunity is the idea that if enough people get immunized against a disease, they’ll create protection for even those who aren’t vaccinated. This is important to protect those who can’t get vaccinated, like immunocompromised children. 

You can see in the image how low levels of vaccination lead to everyone getting infected. Medium levels slow down the progression of the illness, but they don’t offer robust protection to the unvaccinated. But once you read a high enough level of vaccination, the disease gets effectively road-blocked. It can’t spread fast enough because it encounters too many vaccinated individuals, and so the majority of the population (even the unvaccinated people) are protected.

With Senate’s approval, S.D. could be first to pass transgender bathroom bill

With Senate’s approval, S.D. could be first to pass transgender bathroom bill:

ehmeegee:

This is so embarrassing. Why does my home state only ever make the news when it’s doing something discriminatory and shameful? Growing up with a liberal mindset in a place as conservative as South Dakota was exceedingly challenging – in school, I felt surrounded by hatred and hostility for the unfamiliar and unknown. I can’t fathom the sort of fear my classmates who struggled with gender identity or sexual orientation must have harbored. This is a sad perpetuation, a wrongful confirmation to fearful people that their perverse interest in what’s going on under someone’s clothes is any business at all of theirs.

South Dakota is a beautiful state with a rich and complicated history, but it’s difficult to speak kindly of it as a whole when it regurgitates such a lack of compassion under the guise of protection.

“THE BUZZARDS: Production designer Colin Gibson describes more of the theory behind the Buzzard…”

Monday, July 6th, 2015

THE BUZZARDS:

Production designer Colin Gibson describes more of the theory behind the Buzzard tribe. “The Buzzards are basically vultures. They’re a pack of hyenas. If you build a world full of carrion, the hyena and the vulture will circle. And the difference with them is, they have much baser needs, because they were after just material, the crude mechanics, the very stuff of things. They didn’t see a Cadillac, [the Buzzards] saw metal; not man, but meat. George had the theory that they were Russian and I think maybe they were White Russian and way too white – their bodies were ravaged by impetigo and infection. They were suppurating flesh and peeling skin, held in place with Saran Wrap and bandage. It was just a little too moist in this dry and dirty place, so they hid inside the spiky vehicles. They were spiky as much to keep people away from them as for attack. The anthropomorphic treatment worked both on the front and the back, there was a sense of trying to find vehicles that had eyes, that we could add a grinning grille of mouth to, that the radiator could look like braces on an inbred mouth.

THE ROCK RIDERS:

Gibson relates, “If the Buzzards are the hunters of carrion, then the Rock Riders are the hunters just pre-mortem. They have a path through which you must go, which brings you in single file, basically turns you into easy pickings. Their system of attack is obviously, if I live high, then I need to be able to move up and down. So we decided they were two-wheeled parkour artists. Certain motorbikes are built for this.
