From above, the location of 53°N, 80°E doesn’t look like much:
But this little place on the Russian steppe, in the farmlands four hours southwest of the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, is where Valentina Tereshkova touched back down on the ground after spending three days in space, the first woman to orbit the Earth. She launched on this day, 50 years ago.
This is an absolutely wonderful panel with the stars and writers (including Dan Harmon) of Community, in which Danny Pudi talks about how intensely emotional it is to play a character like Abed, as a response to the interviewer asking “does Abed HAVE emotions”.
He also discusses how it can be very overwhelming to take in the nuance “just watching a scene of two people talking” in regard to what Abed is going through; the connection to being an autistic character who is constantly overwhelmed (and yes, Abed DOES have meltdowns) is deeply meaningful to me, as an autistic person.
I especially love the entire cast’s responses to the interviewer’s kinda ableist assumptions about Abed, and even Troy (by extension of having a best friend who is autistic).

New Study Shows Hillary Clinton’s Face Makes Women More Confident
Tess VandenDolder Apr 25th at 1:07 pm
In the study individual men and women were asked to give a speech in front of a panel of six strangers. For some there was a picture of Bill Clinton on the back wall and for others there was a picture of Hillary. Overall the men spoke longer and were judged as better speakers than the women, except for the group of ladies who spoke while looking into Hillary’s baby blues. That group blew the men out of the water as far as the length of their speeches and overall confidence and success in conveying their ideas publicly.
The conclusion researchers drew from this study was that when women are exposed to powerful female role models in leadership positions they gained instant boosts in confidence and the ability to achieve at high levels. ”Female political role models can inspire women and help them cope with stressful situations that they encounter in their careers, such as public speaking,” the authors of the study wrote. ”A lack of female powerful role models leads to a vicious circle, because if women fail to take leadership positions, they also fail to provide role models for junior women to follow.”
