15-year-old Temar Boggs and his friend Chris Garcia bravely saved a little girl from being abducted, making them our BAMF’s of the day.
Just moments after Temar Boggs and Chris Garcia head the amber alert for 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas, both boys hopped onto their bikes and joined the search for the missing girl.
Boggs noticed a car make a u-turn near the top of a hill where several police officers were gathered. The suspicious vehicle started roaming the side streets in the neighborhood, which is known for having several cul-de-sacs and dead ends.
The teen chose to chase the car on his bike, and even got close enough to see a little girl inside. He even made eye contact with the driver, who was frightened enough by the encounter to let the little girl out of the car. Boggs stated:
"She runs to my arms and said, ‘I need to see my mommy.’"
Boggs escorted Jocelyn to the police where she was reunited with her family.
The suspect, described as a white male between 50 and 70 years old, is still on the loose. He was driving a maroon car with round tail lights, wearing green shoes, green pants and a red-and-white striped shirt. He reportedly walked with a limp.

ALL OF THE BEYONCE GIFS AT YOU, VAN DE PUTTE
Professional mic dropper Leticia Van de Putte
“Parliamentary inquiry: At what point must a female Senator raise her hand or her voice in order to be heard over the male Senators in the room?”
And the gallery goes wild.
This is after she’s had previous motions completely ignored, despite the fact that everyone except the chair apparently heard her.
When you tell your kids stories about this day, y’all had BETTER NOT FORGET THIS WOMAN. Her name is Senator Leticia van de Putte, and she was the trigger for the explosion of noise that stalled this bill for fifteen minutes or so, and stalled it until midnight.
The crowds might be chanting Wendy’s name, but this woman is the one who got them chanting.
Senator Wendy Davis is a fucking badass.
There’s this bill that they are trying to pass in Texas that would make it illegal to get any abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and would make it very difficult for abortion centers to continue doing what they do. Governor Rick Perry has already said that if the bill makes it to his desk, he will sign it. And Wendy Davis said fuck no that is not happening.
So she’s filibustering it. That means she asked to talk on the subject at 11:18 this morning, and if she can continue talking about abortion until 11:59 tonight, the bill won’t reach Governor Perry, and they would have to start all over with the bill next time they meet- 2 years from now.
But Wendy has to keep talking. She can’t pause for even a minute, not for food or a sip of water or to go to the bathroom or sit down. She can’t even lean up against anything, or she’s out. So she’s wearing motherfucking PINK NIKE TENNIS SHOES in the middle of the state senate.
She also has to continue talking about the topic. She sent out tweets an other messages last night asking for anyone and everyone’s abortion story, and received a shit load of answers. Her staff is still collecting them, and she’s reading them aloud to the senate. Not only is she making this bill impossible to pass, she may just change some minds while she’s at it.
This is history, guys. Wendy Davis is a motherfucking badass, and we are watching it happen.

Archetypes | WOMAN KING
And she speaks in a voice that sets men trembling, with eyes painted gold and a throne built on the bones of those who would challenge her rule. Cults of ascetics dance ecstasies in her honour and write her words in blood across their altars. Her body is a holy temple and her power springs from the divine source of her own terrible will. She is not of mortal flesh, they will whisper, as she wheels on her stallion and screams warchants to the heavens, emerging from battle wreathed in the blood and soil of a new kingdom. She rules with iron fists, with the cracking of cathedrals, with the love and the fear of her vast wild armies. She harbours a sword within her unquiet roaring heart, and with it has carved herself a new space, outside of law or nature or humankind. She is the mother of an empire; she is the mother of herself. Watch her rise.

“If I ran for Sudan, I would be betraying my people. I would be dishonoring the two million people who died for our freedom. I want to bring honor to my country. People who just want glory, the spotlight of the Olympics, they don’t care about other people. I’m fighting for independent status because I do care. When I run, I want people to see me and say, ‘He is from South Sudan.’”

Okay. Reasons that this scene is the best thing ever include but are by no means limited to:
- how well Maisie Williams is holding her own here, I mean here she is playing against this amazing veteran actor and she’s just bringing it
- the way this is like her fucked-up revenge fantasy of what she wishes her brother could do to the Lannisters
- but she’s already disillusioned enough to know it’s a fantasy
- because “anyone can be killed” is an implicit threat to Tywin but it’s also an acknowledgement of the fact that she or Robb or anyone else can bite it at any time
- (because apparently Arya has already read ASOIAF and knows how fucked they all are)
- and let’s talk about the fact that this kid just threatened Tywin Lannister
- TYWIN FUCKING LANNISTER
- whose own kids can barely look him in the face when they’re talking to him
- his kids who are grownups and have killed kings and won battles and run kingdoms are terrified of him
- and he looks at Arya and thinks “why aren’t my kids awesome like you”
- “you’re like five years old and you just threatened me, you little badass”
- (‘cause don’t think for a second that Tywin doesn’t get the subtext here)
- “why do my children have to be such cringing little asshats”
- (but of course Tywin is the one who made them into cringing little asshats.)
Even if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, read the reasons. Seriously, it’s fucking worth it.
