I discovered how to make a Photoshop brush that behaves almost exactly the same way oils do. To download the thing click here.
It’s a Tool (Smudge) so you should load it into Tool Presets. And also play around with Strength to find what percentage works best for you. 
If you can’t install it properly, you can find a tutorial on how to make it here.

Tricep Dip

Triceps dips are a simple way to tone shoulders and upper arms, but while the move seems basic, it can be easy to do it incorrectly. Make sure you aren’t rolling your shoulders forward, and don’t just lift and lower your butt; focus on bending your elbows and strengthening your arms to ensure you’re focusing on your triceps. Find out how to do a triceps dip here.

Inchworms

You’ll engage pretty much every muscle group in your body in this tougher-than-it-looks movement. Plus, you’ll get an awesome hamstring stretch in the process. Hinge at your hips to place your hands on the floor in front of your feet, keeping your legs as straight as possible (A). Begin walking your hands out in front of you (B) taking small steps until you’re in a plank position (C). Then walk your feet up to your hands, also with small steps. Do 4 reps, then turn around and do 4 more. (If you have a long room or hallway, go for all 8 in a row, or challenge yourself to go from one end of it to the other).

A pregnant woman has had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers.
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb. The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.

If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.

oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID

Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:

She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.

It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects. 

I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.

i fucking cant

So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.

Terribly sad. I hope this gets worked out in her benefit.

I can’t even imagine how terrifyingly awful that situation had to have been. Forcing a woman, against her will, to undergo sedation and then waking up in pain, without the fetus you’ve been carrying for 9 months? That’s beyond the pale. How much do the rights of an unborn fetus circumvent the rights of a full-grown adult? How much do we have to other the mentally ill, treating them (us) as less than human? She was literally treated like a breeding animal, with no cause of concern for her safety, mental health or well-being. Fuck. Fuck.

i wrote a kakasaku oneshot a few days ago, and uploaded it on fanfiction.net. then my story self-deleted… TWICE. even after re-uploading it. it’s kind of weird, it’ll be there for about a day, get a few reviews, and then it’ll suddenly disappear. has anyone else experienced the same problem?? it’s kinda getting on my nerves.. :(

also my story had no explicit content, if you were wondering. which is why i really have no clue to how it could have been erased twice.

Have you emailed ff.net about the problem?  Because it might fix itself if you were to get another account, or it might be a bug in their system.

Crockpot Apple Sauce

  • 3 pounds Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored and cut into thick slices (about 12 medium apples)
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
1. Combine all ingredients in the Crock Pot and cook on high for 5 hours.

2. If you prefer a slightly chunky applesauce as pictured - simply stir and mash the apples with a large spoon. If you prefer smooth applesauce, transfer the cooled applesauce to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Store applesauce in an airtight container within the refrigerator or freeze for up to 6 months.

- The amount of sugar you use will depend on the type of apples you use. I recommend tasting the applesauce about an hour before it’s done and adjusting the spices and sugar to meet your taste. My apples were quite sweet, so 1/3 cup was perfect.
