A (S)hale of a detailed difference for Transcribe Tuesday! Each week, on #TranscribeTuesday, we share work created by digital volunteers in the Transcription Center.
Ira Sayles was part of the U.S. Geological Survey and worked under paleontologist Charles D. Wolcott (transcribe his notes here). Sayles’ mineral and geological work was reported regularly in Smithsonian Board of Regents reports in the late 1880s-1890s. 
In this section, he describes in detail the difference in sediment layers; in other parts of these field notes (which need review, hint hint), he writes about the fossil record uncovered in his work. These notes are shared by Smithsonian Institution Archives and the Field Book Project. 
P.S. FWIW: Ira Sayles has no Wikipedia article… 

Ordinary people at work.

Second installment in my new “My Brain and I” series! You can check out the first comic here.

Too much personal truth here. Except it can go into early person emulator mode from 4:30-10am

Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

Forever reblog

Having lived in NYC where its legal to be topless (and yes I took advantage of that fact several times.) I was curious as to why it wasn’t nation wide.

So let’s make it nation wide!

Breastfeeding is a fact of life and a good choice for baby. Let’s give it the respect it deserves.

We need feminism because our society can’t tell the difference between mealtime and porn.

Minions of the cowardly morals police left these flyers in a Juneau Wal-Mart.

I call them cowardly because the flyers do not offer any contact info or organizational affiliation. They clearly do not wish to be called to account for their views. I think is this more corrosive to society than cleavage and miniskirts.

Also, their question about whether you’d be comfortable in the presence of your savior not only assumes Christianity, but ignores decades of fundamentalist imagery of people leaving their clothes behind when raptured.

Aside from that, it’s not your business what any chooses to wear. Unless your workplace has a dress code and you are a supervisor. Otherwise, myob.

Finally I think if these people spent more time carrying out Christ’s demands in Matthew 25 than measuring skirts everyone would be better off.

Have you seen these flyers in your neighborhood? If so, where? Let’s track the cowardly morals police together.

Aww. Puppies! And books! And crafts!
