Making God Bleed or, How Legend of Korra Nails Handling Its Main Character

askallymelftsw:

We’ve all been extremely vocal for quite some time about the way Asami, Mako, Bolin, and others have been handled throughout the seasons.  However, one character who has been consistently handled nearly flawlessly has been Korra herself. Below I’ll map out and describe the processes involved in molding her, but here are three words (in order) to summarize it: event, choice, consequences. 

 “The narrator cannot escape the consequences of the story he is telling.” – Anton Chekov

Last year, 156,000 Americans had their Social Security checks garnished because of student loans they had defaulted on.   Don’t let this be you!   Take time to do your homework BEFORE taking out any student loans, private or Federal.  The hard work you put in today can save you from being a college statistic in the future. 
Fortunatley there are plenty of places to help you discover some great options.  Of course we are biased and would personally choose the Overture Marketplace because it’s the only way to compare real credit qualified rates & terms.   With that being said there are other places to consider.  Check this article from USNews for additional options - Tools for cheap student loans.

A trip down sensory lane.

Filmmakers take note- This five second scene not only fully describes a characters backstory, but the entire reason he acts the way he acts through the film, taking him from a villain to a sympathetic character and justifying a total reversal of his actions in the present. In five seconds, this movie does for the development of a character more than most movies do in two hours. This is why you should be studying Disney and Pixar along with Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick, and ignoring professors and elitist students who deride them as “kids stuff.”

A woman’s strength isn’t just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It’s also about how much she must handle after she’s broken.

RP from @theglobalmovement ISRAEL HAS WON THE BATTLE BUT LOST THE WAR: How the World is done with Israel: The UN says over 77% of dead Gazan’s are children. While the US and UK stand by Israel over its military offensive in Gaza, governments across Latin America have moved to cut their links. El Salvador, Chile, Peru, Brazil and Ecuador have all recalled their ambassadors, while Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Uruguay and Paraguay have suspended the Free Trade Agreement talks, demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. In a joint statement they called for an end to the “disproportionate use of force by the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip which in the majority affects civilians, including children and women.” Chile - with the largest Palestinian Arab population outside of the Middle East - was the first to cut ties. It is no small gesture, as the country has deep economic and military connections with Israel. Bolivian President Evo Morales accused Israel of being a “terrorist state” and has said that from now on Israelis would need a visa to visit his country. “Israel doesn’t guarantee the principle of respect for life, and the basic right to live in harmony and peace in the international community,” he said. UK Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, senior minister of state at the foreign office and minister for faith and communities, resigned from the government over its policy on Gaza. Numerous journalists and News anchors have been censored by Israeli heads who either direct or are in deep with mass communications in the west. Its not hard to see there is a massive conflict taking place here. People are questioning what exactly does Israel represent? Its certainly not the Jewish faith, nor millions of other Jews throughout the world marked as Jews by race on their passports. People are people. Either good or evil. Looks like the big weapons manufacturers, intelligence spooks, banking cabals and global companies creating a fascist world at war is starting to be exposed mainstream….. And in good reason. #gazawar #gazaunderattack #israhell #palestineunderattack #warofterror #Argentina #brazil #Bolivia #boycott #boycottisrael #occupy99 #israelunderattack
