A young Filipino Resistance fighter poses with a flag of the United States Army Forces in the Far East following the routing of Japanese occupying forces from her province. From 20 January 1945 to 15 August 1945, Tarlac was recaptured piece by piece by combined Filipino and American troops together with the recognized Filipino guerrilla fighters against the Japanese Imperial forces. Tarlac, Tarlac Province, Central Luzon, Philippines. August 1945.
A bit saddened by the word ‘recognized’ because it hearkens to the unrecognized guerrilla forces, the Hukbalahap in particular, who bled just as much, and sometimes sacrificed even more, in defense of the country against the Japanese. That sad bit of history is also directly connected to the anti-Communist purges post-war, and the still on-going hostilities with rebel forces throughout Luzon.
All this simply because the peasants in the farmland were not protected, their voices in government hunted down, and the malignant status quo preserved.

No, for real, though—this is a thing. Not sure about the science behind it, but it makes me feel fancy and powerful regardless. I highly recommend it.
There actually is legit science behind this. In fact, here’s an entire TED Talk about the science behind it, and the confidence-related chemicals that your brain produces JUST BY YOU STANDING LIKE THIS.This is now my 2014 stance.
Also new 2014 stance. Plus I’ve started wearing heels more often so I’m a solid 6’0” on Don’t Start With Me days.
