climateadaptation:

Global Shark Tracker, tracks tagged sharks around the world. I played with the map and found “Albert,” a 2.9 meter, 500 lbs Great White Shark that lives off the coast of South Africa.

I count on tumblr to visually educate me on history’s less important but infinitely more interesting events.

It delivers. My god does it deliver.

“I want to ride the great winds, strike the sharks on the high seas, drive out the invaders, reconquer the nation, burst the bonds of slavery, and never bow to become anyone’s concubine.”

Lady Trieu (Triệu Thị Trinh)
Art by Franny (tumblr)
In the third century CE, a young Vietnamese woman known as Lady Trieu led a rebellion against Chinese occupation.  The details of her life are unclear and her story is at times embellished to epic proportions, casting her as a nine foot tall giant.  Her birth name is unknown, but Lady Trieu is believed to have been born to a high ranking family, orphaned young, and raised by her elder brother.  She was around 20 years of age when she led a rebellion that lasted either six months or three years depending on the source.  Like the Trưng Sisters before her, when defeat became inevitable, Lady Trieu chose to take her own life rather than surrender.  Although her rebellion was unsuccessful, Lady Trieu’s bravery earned her a place in the pantheon of Vietnamese heroes.

A zombie-bitten father tries to save his infant daughter in this bittersweet short film

So you’ve been bitten by a zombie. So long, conscious brain activity, hello craving for human meat. But the protagonist of the short film Cargo has bigger problems than his impending demise: he has to find a way to save his infant daughter, even if he has to die first to do it.

Directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, Cargo was a finalist in Tropfest Australia 2013. It’s also a rather clever take on zombie genre tropes, with a story that isn’t about the survival of self, but the survival of another.
