    Science Needs Women: 
    For Women in Science; the L’Oreal Foundation 

    I’m sharing this video on any platform I can because when I first found it last week it had something like 1,400 views, but it’s the most beautifully produced and succinctly narrated video addressing some of the most complicated issues facing women in STE(A)M fields I’ve found yet. 

    I’m sharing this for every time I’m called a “feminazi.”

    …for every time I’m told that my concerns aren’t valid, our that our issues are imagined.

    …for every time I hear “women just don’t like science,” or worse - “women just aren’t good at science.”

    …for every time we’re told that we can have a family or a career, but not both - and for every time we feel like we have to decide between the two.

    …for every time a study comes out saying as many as 64% of women endure sexual harassment during field work

    …for the fact that women earn 41% of PhD’s in STEM fields, but make up only 28% of tenure-track faculty in those fields.

    …and because we need more women mentors in these fields to stand up for issues that are not “women’s issues” - these are people issues that affect our collective society as a whole.

    The women in this video are my heroes and they should be your heroes, too.

    Easter Island’s Statues Reveal Bodies Covered With Unknown Ancient Petroglyphs

    21 January, 2014

    MessageToEagle.com - Standing some 2,000 miles west of Chile, on the Easter Island, 887 mysterious giant statues have intrigued scientists and the public for years.

    For a long time it was believed that the massive statutes consisted of just the heads.

    However, in October 2011, when the Easter Island Statue Project began its Season V expedition, scientists could reveal remarkable photos showing that the bodies of the statues go far deeper underground than just about anyone had imagined.

    Project director Jo Anne Van Tilburg said: “Our EISP excavations recently exposed the torsos of two 7m tall statues.

    The statutes on Easter Island have bodies covered with ancient undeciphered petroglyphs.

    "We found a round, deep post hole into which the Rapa Nui had inserted a tree trunk," she said. Van Tilburg said ropes were attached to the tree trunk and to the partially carved statue. "We found a rope guide that was actually carved into the bedrock near the statue." The Rapa Nui then used the tree trunk to raise the statue upright. Before the statue was upright, they carved its front. Once it stood erect, they finished the back, Van Tilburg explained.

    The excavation team also found about 800 grams of natural red pigment —nearly two pounds —in the burial hole, along with a human burial. Van Tilburg believes the pigment was used to paint the statues, just as the Rapa Nui used pigment to paint their bodies for certain ceremonies.

    The unusually large amount of pigment found indicates that it might have been used by a priest or chief, perhaps as part of mortuary practice, she said. Human bones were found throughout the dig, indicating that people buried their dead around the statues.

    Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of visitors to the island have been astonished to see that, indeed, Easter Island statues have bodies!

    More important, however, we discovered a great deal about the Rapa Nui techniques of ancient engineering.”

    Among their discoveries, the team discovered:

    · The dirt and detritus partially burying the statues was washed down from above and not deliberatelyplaced there to bury, protect, or support the statues

    · The statues were erected in place and stand on stone pavements

    · Post holes were cut into bedrock to support upright tree trunks

    · Rope guides were cut into bedrock around the post holes

    · Posts, ropes, stones, and different types of stone tools were all used to carve and raise the statues upright

    The two “heads” in the quarry where Van Tilburg’s team dug are standing figures with torsos, truncated at the waist, that have become partially buried by eroded dirt and detritus over centuries.

    The team also discovered that ceremonies were certainly associated with the statues.

    On the project website, Van Tilburg said: “We found large quantities of red, some of which may have been used to paint the statues.

    Finally, and perhaps most poignantly, we found in the pavement under one statue a single stone carved with a crescent symbol said to represent a canoe, or vaka.

    The backs of both statues are covered with petroglyphs, many of which are also vaka.

    A direct connection between the vaka symbol and the identity of the artist or group owning the statue is strongly suggested.”

    Still, many of these ancient petroglyphs remain undeciphered and the history of one of the most remote islands in the world is now even more mysterious than ever.

    This is fuckin’ boss!

    But seriously, I love how for the longest time everyone was just like ‘yep. Giant heads. just giant heads.’ and no one even ever bothered to check.
    You know what happens when you make an assumption, guys.
