San Rafael - Condor Agate | ©Uwe Reier
Discovered in 1992 by the former Argentinean actor, Luis de los Santos, the Condor Agate comes from a difficult-to-reach 7,000-foot elevated plateau near San Rafael, in Mendoza Province, Argentina. The site can only be reached by horse back.
The agate’s bright reds and yellows are made even more vivid by their contrasting bands of cooler, more-subtle hues. This agate was named after the large Condor birds that were flying over Luis de los Santos during the trip that he discovered the agate.
Locality: San Rafael, Argentina.

I once posted some photos of my relatives at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Lake Geneva Hotel (1911-1970) in Wisconsin. The prairie style design featured a horizontal 360-foot long building with 90 rooms, terraces, and colorful art glass windows. The top photograph, from a 1967 issue of the Milwaukee Journal, shows the swimming pool that had been added next to the entrance. The rest of the photographs, taken by preservationist Richard Nickel, show the building right before demolition, including the large arched fireplace that was located in the lobby. Notice some of the alterations, including a sign for “The Golden Orchid” restaurant. A 1970s style high-rise condo building currently stands on the hotel’s former site at the lake and lagoon between Broad and Center Streets.

All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling. 
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest. 
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.

are you goddamn kidding me?
that fuck currently has $143,540 and Michael Brown’s family has $127,997…
I can’t even… 

the officer who fired the most shots (and reloaded) and killed amadou diallo in ‘99 lives two houses down from my mom
He went around the neighborhood (after he murdered Diallo with his two coworkers) collecting money so he could “afford to get a lawyer” for the case
He collected thousands on thousands of dollars (maybe even more) from people whom his wife and friends had solicited to get support after this “tragic event” (tragic for who????)
instead he got a lawyer supplied to him by the NYPD for free and used the money collected by everyone he knew to :
- put an addition on his house and completely remodel it-buy himself a giant sailboat- send both of his kids to both a private high school and a private college- get a new hummer and several classic cars- swimming pool
let me add that he comfortably lives on this giant ass eyesore of a house on the corner of our block and receives no shit for what he did at all. comfy and retired with a nice chunky pension and all the material possessions he could ask for.
What do these cops need this support money for? Tell me.

Dogg, if you’re going to spend the rest of your life doing electrical engineering, you shouldn’t be allowed to graduate until you can demonstrate that you can see the world through the lens of something other than the white male lens. Don’t worry, asshole, you’ll be back cloistered away with your white dudes soon enough.
