Welcome!

Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

How Neil deGrasse Tyson Made Me Cry

For anyone not watching the new Cosmos on Fox, you are missing out, and I say that sentence with none of my usual ironic bite or snarky superiority. I literally mean to say, you are missing out. I have nothing but praise for this series. I can't think of one thing wrong with it. I should probably just end my review here and leave it at that, but when have I ever been brief in my writing? (That was a rhetorical question, by the way.) Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey just premiered its fourth episode last Sunday on Fox, and it has yet to fail to disappoint. It is spectacular in all aspects: the visual effects, the mind-blowing facts, the animated historical portions, the…

Books I recommend!

Sorry that I haven't been around very much lately! My father has been ill and in hospital for the past two months. He's on the road to recovery now and that means that I have more space in my brain to concentrate on bringing you all more book recommendations and blog posts!

Here are some of the books I've been reading and enjoying lately. Feel free to share in comments your own recommendations and/or write your own lists and reviews in the blog section and send them over to me. I love hearing about them. If there are particular things you'd like to see featured in these (hopefully regular) blog posts about books, let me know!

Sexual Abuse, Consent, and Culture

 

If you haven't heard, there have been some really troubling stories about manipulative and even possibly abusive relationships between online creators and their fans.



While that situation certainly spurred me to make this video, I also think a video like this is long overdo. We're excited to be facing these problems head-on, because the only way out is through.



Thanks to our task force for helping me edit this video and make sure I wasn't too clumsy with the work, especially to Sahitya.



Here are some resources put together by the task force:



If someone is pressuring you:…

Anti-Human Trafficking Petition

Hello, Ning!So normally, I don't ask very much of you, but this is important. I need your help.To put it succinctly, there are some serious issues with the chocolate industry. Impoverished people, in many cases young children, are exploited and often enslaved for the purpose of profit (off of chocolate-y goodness). My sister, who is a brilliant young activist, wrote a petition challenging big chocolate corporations like Hersheys, Nestle (who is making progress but hasn't fully transitioned),…See More
