"WALK FOR A DOG" SMARTPHONE APP GENERATES DONATIONS FOR SHELTERS - Support your local animal shelter simply by walking your dog. For every mile you walk, we donate to the shelter of your choice..”

A smartphone application called “Walk for a Dog,” available for Android and iPhone, allows people to generate donations to animal shelter simply by walking. For every mile you walk, Wooftrax, Inc. will donate money to a local shelter. The donations typically range from 11 to 25 cents per mile, depending on the number of registered users associated with the particular shelter. Read more from Wooftrax.com:

Support your local animal organization simply by walking your dog! Use the app each time you grab for the leash. It’s healthy for you, your dog, and your favorite shelter or rescue.

Click “Get the App” at the top of the page, install the free Android or iPhone app, and start taking your Walk for a Dog every day. You can change the shelter or rescue you are walking for in the setup tab of the app for iPhone users, or in the settings menu for Android users. Be sure to encourage your selected animal organization to get the word out! The more people walking for a shelter or rescue, the more we can donate.

Promotional pictures of 杨门女将之军令如山 (Legendary Amazons), a film about the three female generations of the 楊 (Yáng) family.

This is so amazing.

Attention America, this is how you market female characters. Note the resounding LACK of male gaze, note how they all look strong, and are in poses that are anatomically plausible, how despite the fact that they are all holding weapons they are not fetishized in any way.

This may very well be a cultural difference or dissonance on our part but still, take a fucking note, these are really god damn good.

OH MY GOD, I LOVE the Yang Family story. Both the men and the women of the family are just AMAZING. This story. THIS STORY.
