I Stand With Planned Parenthood

Via Liz via fousheezy:
Did you hear? The House voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding.  They cut funding for HIV tests, cancer screenings, birth control, and more, putting millions of women and families at risk.  We can't let it go unanswered.  It's time for you and me to Stand with Planned Parenthood.  Sign the open letter to the reps who voted for this bill - and to the senators who still have a chance to stop it.  Don't just reblog: SIGN IT!  
I signed it - you should do it too!  Maybe these sorts of petty funding battles wouldn't be so partisan if there were more women in Congress ...

The Unseen Sea

One of the novelties of living in San Francisco is that it is foggy much of the time here.  While being in the middle of the fog is not so special, the many vantage points from high up in the city give you spectacular views of the fog rolling in or out of the bay area.

Simon Christen has produced a stop-motion video of the foggy city at different times of day and different seasons of the year.  Check it out - it's pretty amazing:

UPDATE: One of the commenters has correctly pointed out that this is *not* a stop-motion but a time-lapse video.  Thanks, Mors!
