How’s that for alliteration? She was born in Philadelphia and grew up with an interest in astronomy. Rubin eventually earned her BA in astronomy from Vassar College and tried to enroll in the graduate astronomy program at Princeton, but they refused to send her a catalogue because women weren’t allowed in the graduate astronomy program...until 1975. Let’s let that sink in for a second. She ended up studying at Cornell University, learning quantum physics from Richard Feynman and quantum mechanics under Hans Bethe. While studying the Andromeda Galaxy with fellow astronomer Kent Ford, Rubin noticed that objects on the outer parts of the galaxy were spinning at the same speed as those on the inside, which was antithetical to the belief objects at the center of a galaxy move faster than those on the outskirts. It turns out that she discovered the existence of the unseeable stuff that affects the movement of galaxies! . .

7-Eleven, Memes, and Police: ICE agents raid 77 businesses this week in the San Francisco Bay Area looking for undocumented workers POLICE FEDERAL ACENT A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent removes handcuffs from undocumented men in California. So infuriating! 😑😑 FuckICE "U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided 77 businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area this week, following through on a threat to crack down on so-called sanctuary cities. Last month, ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan, President Trump's pick to run the agency, vowed to increase efforts in California cities that limited the amount of local law enforcement help for ICE agents. ICE said it sent worker audit notices to businesses in San Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento, as well as other sites in Northern California. The businesses have three days to produce their hiring records. In early January, ICE agents conducted audits at six 7-Eleven stores in the Bay Area. Gov. Jerry Brown, the late San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardolast year all reinforced efforts to limit assistance to ICE, denouncing Trump's immigration policies, particularly arrests of unauthorized immigrants without criminal convictions and the president’s move to end protections for β€œDreamers,” young undocumented immigrants."
