Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.

20,000 people were without water | Follow micdotcom 

"Activists also told Yahoo that the spill highlighted everything wrong with a plan to transfer local water-testing responsibilities from government regulators to the company itself." ARGH.

I know there’s a science side of tumblr, and an English side of tumblr that corrects all of our grammar, but is there a history side? Is there someone to correct us when we say the wrong date, get the wrong name, or we get a historical event wrong?

rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

My female biology teacher actually had us watch an hour long documentary about her, and it was so refreshing to see a teacher actively try to destroy these lies that we have been fed that place men on a pedestal. Rosalind was a truly driven and badass woman. 

I kind of shamed my animal behavior prof for leaving out her name in his lecture (fyi he hates me)

My AP biology teacher (also female) taught my class about Rosalind Franklin… my class was 13 girls and 1 guy.  We called ourselves the “Women of Science” and made t-shirts to celebrate “Rosalind Franklin Day” on April 16th (we had to use the day of her death because she was born in July and we wouldn’t have been in school).  We wore the shirts all day and made a point to give a meaningful explanation whenever anyone asked about them.  Rosalind Franklin is the ultimate bamf and such an inspiration, and my old highschool friends still talk about/celebrate Ros on April 16th. :)
