Great Local Event: All-Day Series of Talkson Geographic Information Systems

The Library of Congress will celebrate GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Day on Nov. 16 with an all-day series of talks on the use of GIS technology in the federal government, the private sector, academia and K-12 schools. The discussions will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, in the reading room of the Library’s Geography and Map Division, on the basement level of the James Madison Memorial Building, 101 Independence Ave. S.E., Washington, D.C.  Tickets are not required for this event, which is free and open to the public. A Geographic Information System is a computer system for storing, analyzing, manipulating and displaying digital data that is linked to positions on the Earth’s surface.  GIS provides the modern basis for digital geographic analysis and map-making. GIS Day is held during Geography Awareness Week (Nov. 13-19)—an annual, global celebration of GIS technology, with events held by organizations around the world.  Formally started in 1999, GIS Day aims to provide a forum to promote the benefits of GIS research, demonstrate real-world applications of GIS and foster open idea-sharing and growth in the GIS community.

The Library’s morning session will include presentations from high-school and university students and recent graduates showcasing their environmentally-focused GIS research.  The morning will also feature talks on the use of GIS in the federal government and by non-profit organizations and will highlight career opportunities in the growing field of GIS. The afternoon session will focus on GIS activities and resources throughout the Capitol Hill complex.  Cartographers, GIS analysts and library technicians from the Library’s Geography and Map Division and the Library’s Congressional Research Service will discuss ongoing projects and services.  These are designed to broaden the availability of geospatial data and provide GIS analysis and custom cartography to Congress.  The afternoon also will feature talks from congressional aides using GIS to visualize geographic data and inform constituents of policy issues and news through digital cartography. The program will conclude with tours of the Geography and Map Division’s collections, including rare cartographic treasures. Learn more about the schedule as well as information about the Library of Congress’ largest and most comprehensive collection of maps and atlases in the world, some 5.4 million cartographic items that date from the 14th century to the present time by visiting loc.gov.

Are menstrual cups the best solution for heavy periods? | My Period

 

#Periods…they can really be a pain literally and figuratively. I like to feel prepared for when my cycle comes so since I was a teen I categorized my underwear as fashion statement panties, sportswear and period panties. My period panties were basically the panties I thought were the least attractive and wouldn’t be as upset if any leakage happened during my sleep or other circumstance. Now I’m excited to try out #menstrual underwear. Yes these are stylish panties designed to keep you comfortable and secure during your period. They come in all types of designs and available for all ages ( per-teen, #teen and ages 12+). The panties are known as worry free period panties because they are leak proof/ #waterproof and made from high quality fiber. They fit just as good as #briefs or #boyshorts. They don’t feel like ordinary panties but I like that the #periodpanties are breathable and stylish. I got these from #Apropos www.aproposcorp.com but found them more affordable by shopping on #Amazon. I’ll tell you more about them in the weeks ahead when I get my cycle in August. Learn about the journey to better period cycles at www.fromgirltogirl.com Note there is a pocket holding a reusable pad right on the front. It has plenty of space to store #tampons, #pads, and maybe a clean menstrual cup ( with a store bag…which I have). You can put your support horizontal or vertical in the storage space. No one will notice the difference. #fg2g #girls #women #Health4Her #Hygiene #gyno #AuntFlo #menstrualcycle #menstrualcup #menstrual #ImWithHer #periodproblems #periodpain #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger

Some weeks ago I decide to give menstrual cups and other menstrual products to improve my comfort and feminine hygiene when big flow ( my period) comes once a month. I spent about $50 buying renewable pads, very fashionable period panties and my new best friend  – the menstrual cup. With my period days away, I decide to read my menstrual cup instructions and take a dry test with my pixie cup.

Let me tell you…that dry test was an adventure. I thought inserting the menstrual cup would be a breeze since I’m young and my vagina for the most part keeps itself lubricated. I rinsed the menstrual cup with warm water and used a menstrual wipe to sanitize it before inserting it into my vagina. I folded the menstrual cup with my index moving my labia around to make room.

The folding was the easiest part of the insert, it was when the menstrual cup started to expand to its original form, a circle. I didn’t expect the cup to expand so quickly to the walls of my vagina. It has a different feeling than when a tampon is present. I was trying to retreat when I felt it expand but it’s too late.

Watch the video below to see what I recommend to make it more comfortable to put the menstrual cup in and out of your vagina. You can live the average menstrual cup in you for 8-12 hours (depending on the size and the flow of your period).

If you don’t feel the cup completely open, rotate the cup gently to make sure all sides of it have expanded. I notice it is there but not by much. I don’t know how this will feel once my period begins, but I will report on it as soon as I can.  Sitting really helped me initially put the cup inside me but I had to stand to rotate and make sure all sides are open. FULL VIDEO:

You can also down-load a high-resolution version of the infographic here. Pass it along to friends and family.

In the spirit of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Badoo, the world’s largest dating network, has released very interesting findings on dating trends from the U.S. and across the world. Badoo’s 318 million users reveal how dating habits compare and contrast around the world in regards to gender, sexuality, and physical traits such as body type, height, eye and hair color. Here are the key findings from the valuable data:

  • The Most Desirable Traits Worldwide: For female Badoo users across the world, the global findings suggest that men who are between 5’7 and 5’11 (47%), have dark (black/brown) hair (70%), identify as having an average body type (40%) and have brown eyes (52%), are the most desirable characteristics in a partner and most likely to be engaged with online. The findings also suggest that male Badoo users worldwide are more likely to engage with women who are between 5’3 and 5’7 (48%), have brown hair (34%), an average body type (40%), and brown eyes (52%).

  • What Men Want in the U.S.: American women who identify as being between 5’3 and 5’6 (46%) and having brown eyes (60%) are found to be the the most desired traits by American males and are more likely to receive a message. Women who identify as having brown hair (40%) and an average body type (40%) are more likely to receive a message; in contrast, women with blonde hair (13%) and have an athletic body type (6%) attract less attention.

  • What Women Want in the U.S.: The most desirable physical traits by American women are men who identify as athletic (36%), between 5’7 and 5’11 (40%), have brown eyes (61%) and black/brown hair (66%). Women who have black/brown hair (66%) are found to be the most desirable while men who have blonde (6%) and red hair (1%) are the least likely to be engaged with by women.

  • Who Makes The First Move: Globally, while men are still the most likely to make the first move on a dating app, there are some countries where women are increasingly becoming more forward online. When it comes to women initiating the conversation, female users in the United States (36%), Dominican Republic (30%), Canada (25%) and Thailand (19%) and Czech Republic (21%) are most likely to make the first move.

  • The Countries with the Most Singles: If you’re looking to make travel plans and haven’t decided on your destination yet, consider these five countries, which have the highest rates of single users: United Arab Emirates (97.37%), Australia (96.69%), Turkey (96.40%), New Zealand (96.40%), and Kuwait (96.17%).

  • LGBTQ-Friendly Dating Destinations: Need a few LGBTQ-friendly vacation ideas? Indonesia came out on top as the most “open-minded” dating destination when it comes to sexuality, while countries Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa were found to be the most gay-friendly.

“The results of our first global survey highlight the different reasons people in your area and around the world meet up, and share experiences, interests and friendships,” said Badoo Dating Expert Joey Hadfield.

At Badoo, they are all about the users meeting new people, which is why it’s exciting to learn more about the nuances of dating on a global scale. With 318 million users  in over 190 countries, and over 400,000 new people signing up for a Badoo experience each day, the company is the fastest growing dating platform in the world.

Girls and Sex: Is there a such thing as too many sex partners?

There is a very interesting article circulating the Internet called ‘Girls & Sex and the importance of talking to young girls about pleasure’. Social acceptance is that girls should only have but so much pleasure because our bodies bring babies into the world and then raise the children into outstanding citizens. But what if girls want more than just playing a gender role? What if their pursuit of happiness means pursuing pleasure and dreams beyond motherhood and the family lifestyle? Should not society take these factors to account?

‘Girls & Sex and the importance of talking to young girls about pleasure’ is a  must read but identifying how women and men view sex and who has the right to pleasure can help open the discussion sex and liberty. Often men ask us to ask questions to our readers on their thoughts about sexuality and free will. In the next 24 hours, we hope you can take part in the ‘Girls & Sex’ discussion by giving your commentary on the following questions:
