Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

I’m pretty sure I reblog this every time it comes around.
Police in L.A. County are drastically expanding the types of personal data they collect.
Iris scans, palm prints, mugshots, fingerprints and potentially audio recordings will all be stored in a massive new database that will feed into the FBI.
So why has the public been kept in the dark? Read our new investigation.
I still need to know what dog this is
It is the Caucasian Shepherd Dog aka Russian Bear Dog. This picture below is just a PUPPY.

Such fun. But some I don’t understand why they’re fighting. Although I’m sure Tony said something really stupid to Storm, so he probably deserved what he’s getting.

#LostGirl between Season 3 and 4.Any chance there was someone with enough time and talent that wanted to draw a set of fan fic Lost Girl panels and would draw this for me?
A head canon order of events:
Bo is whisked away by her father, The Wanderer, from the Dal. Tamsin is taken from her truck, leading it to crash.
Bo wakes up in darkness. She’s on the ground, it’s hard and smooth beneath her hands, but dusty. She hears noises all around but can’t make sense of anything. She slowly gets up and sees Tamsin next to her. They stand. Tamsin knows where they are and she is NOT happy. She’s actually almost near a panic. Bo calms her down and finally gets Tamsin to tell them where they are.
Not knowing what else to do or where to go they head towards some light at the end of a hall. It doesn’t offer them much information. It’s practically a labyrinth. They appear to be in a palace made of obsidian and gold. Large red banners hang from ceilings of imposing height.
Eventually they come upon black armor clad guards. Being exhausted and lost, the fight doesn’t last long. Bo’s powers don’t work and she is quickly subdued and she blacks out just as she sees Tamsin get stabbed and fall to the floor.
She wakes up and before her stands a man, her father. Finally we see him. He’s beautiful. He’s cold. There is no passion in him, or emotion. He apologizes for the way they are finally introduced. He had no choice as there was no way else for him to meet her. He explains that he has been looking for since the day Aife stole her from him. But being trapped, he couldn’t. But Bo can help him.
She asks how. He says he’ll explain later. She demands to know what happened to Tamsin. He apologizes again, then hands her a tiny blonde baby. She’ll return to herself soon, he says.
Bo says she can’t agree to help him, he says eventually she will.
Time passes, and Bo raises Tamsin while a “guest” of her fathers in his palace in Hel. Eventually Tamsin ages and seems to be herself, but without her memory. Her fathers calls for them and they stand before him at his throne. Tamsin remembers and he sees it on her face. They are surrounded by his warriors and Tamsin is taken away, terrified.
Some time later he comes back to Bo and hands her a tiny blonde baby. You will help me, he says.
This time Bo decides not to wait and tries to escape with Tamsin while she is still just a child. She fails. He takes Tamsin from her and places her in a gold cage right next to his throne. It takes her weeks to grow again into an adult and when she does, once again, she is taken away.
Once again he goes to Bo and hands her Tamsin as a baby. She doesn’t have many lives left. You will help me.
He brings her his second in command, (someone else who also hates him as much as Bo does), Rainer. He explains that he needs them to get into Valhalla because they both have something he lacks: virtue.
The Wanderer found Rainer on the Death Train and brought him to Hel to offer him a chance to finally get into Valhalla and remember who he is and to rest.
The two reluctant champions of Hel have to make plans and prepare to attack Valhalla at the behest of a monster. For Rainer it’s to finally find peace and for Bo it’s to save Tamsin.
Time passes and they gather the horde to the gates of Valhalla where they are met with an army of heroes. Before any battle begins, a small entourage from Valhalla comes forth and is met by Bo and a few “trusted” counselors, including Rainer.
Bo, flanked by black armor clad warriors on black chargers face just a few feet from them, the captain of the Valhalla army who is in shining armor on a tan mare with a flowing white mane.
Neither speak. Finally Bo takes off her helmet to stare down her “enemies” with her own eyes.
The captain across the small gap does the same. And with a grim strictness to her voice says in greeting, “Bo.”
Bo stares into the calm determined face of Ciara, Fairy Queen and Scuffock. And now enemy.
That’s all I have for now. I do know this though: the hordes of Hel are defeated and Valhalla remains intact. Despite having to defend the Hall of Heroes against Bo and her father’s warriors, Ciara still helps Bo to escape with Tamsin and Rainer. It doesn’t work out how they planned and Bo ends up on the Death Train with Rainer. Neither of them recall their time in Hel and Bo quickly escapes. When she does Tamsin is reborn again for the last time, and Bo’s memory is cleared of everything. She spends season 4 trying to remember and the clues all lead her back to Rainer to free him. Except it wasn’t her plan. It wasn’t Rainer’s plan. It was all Bo’s father’s plan to do two things: get Rainer into Valhalla and to lure Bo back to him in Hel. Rainer sacrifices himself and is taken by Tamsin to Valhalla, where she sees that it’s all wrong now, and that Rainer has indeed betrayed the fae in the worse way possible, by allowing The Wanderer into Valhalla from the inside. And Kenzi willingly walks into the portal thinking it’s to save Bo and everyone else. But what it really was is a trap for Kenzi because The Wanderer knows that Kenzi is the only person she would willingly walk back into Hel for. What happens next….. ?

B: I’ve been out of the abbey two days, I’ve beaten a lawman senseless, I’ve fallen in with criminals. I watched the captain shoot the man I swore to protect. And I’m not even sure if I think he was wrong. I believe… I just… I think I’m on the wrong ship.
I: Maybe. Or maybe you’re exactly where you ought to be.
