"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:

A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or

B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA). TVPA combats trafficking in persons, especially into the sex trade, slavery, and involuntary servitude. It has been reauthorized three times since its initial passage: (x)

“I think the most amazing fact I learned was that they have a part of the brain that we don’t have—a part that we can’t even identify. This suggests that they sense, understand, and even feel more than we do. It still blows me away to think about it.”—Gabriela Cowperthwaite, Director of Blackfish

Free! x Pokemon (Click the images for larger size).

Story of Rei and Eevee 

Rei thought Eevee is beautiful and perfect pokemon. (not sure what’s his standard) Eevee also knew that he loves his ‘beauty’. However, when Rei started to swimming, both of them couldn’t swim at all. Eevee wanted to evolve to Vaporeon to help him with swimming and Rei appreciated of his kindness. In the end, Eevee evolved to Vaporeon and help him with swimming.

Have you ever needed to match your ribbed knit to your fabric but couldn’t find anything remotely similar?

Have you ever tried to dye your ribbed knit to match your fabric but realized it’s 70% polyester and it’s a pain in the ass?

Did you ever want to cosplay Final Fantasy and were reduced to tears because you couldn’t find chunky ribbed knit?

Don’t worry, you can fake your own.

All you need is a twin needle and two spools of thread, and you can sew your knit fabric to imitate ribbed knit.

When you sew with a twin needle it’ll make a sort of ‘pintuck’, raising the fabric. Leave a small gap between the two rows and it’ll create a pattern. This will work better with lighter knits, the one in the pictures is pretty heavy.

Once again, I set the instructions as captions on the photos.

I wish I knew about this! I’ve wanted a blue ribbed knit for Calem’s jacket collar.

#just noticed the slytherin girl and gryffindor boy #theyre so excited #and he turns back to her #and shes like yeah i know #and sort of grabs hold of him #and new otp/brotp #defying labels #not everyone hated slytherins #not all slytherins were dicks #i like this

why is one kid not wearing a robe

the kids who are wearing robes were taking their OWLs/NEWTs.  Notice Luna’s not wearing a robe either.  Because they’re underclassmen and had free periods while the upperclassmen were taking their exams.

This post is amazing because a) Slytherin and intrahouse love, but also because b) someone just explained how free-dress works during exams at Hogwarts.
