The Midnight Planétarium watch not only tells time, but follows the orbit of our solar system’s planets. By Van Cleef & Arpels, showcased at #SIHH2014, the watch follows the celestial orbits of six planets, each represented by a gemstone, orbiting a rose gold sun. It is a feat of design: just as in reality, Mercury makes a full rotation in 3 months, and Saturn in 29.5 years.

This is probably the coolest watch I’ve ever seen, but the price is beyond outrageously ridiculous. It’s a nice dream though. 
“Lovely and very limited, the Midnight Planetarium Poetic Complication watch will be part of a limited edition of just 396 pieces total. Price is $245,000 in 18k rose gold and $330,000 in 18k rose gold with diamond decoration.”
About this watch?

An Update on “SeaWorld’s Worst Nightmare” 
On March 9th, 2014 I made a post about how California state legislator Richard Bloom proposed a bill titled “The Orca Welfare and Safety Act” that would ban orca performances, captive breeding, and the import and export of ‘killer whales.’
Click here to view my original post: “SeaWorld’s Worst Nightmare”.
Shortly after the legislation was proposed SeaWorld hired Pete Montgomery, who was director of government affairs at British Petroleum and has ties to the energy industry, to convince lawmakers to reject Assembly Bill 2140. (via SeaWorld hires energy lobbyist to fight orca ban bill)
The day Bloom announced the legislation on March 7th, 2014 a petition was created on SumOfUs.Org in order to urge the state of California to enact the bill. 
2 days later when I came to Tumblr to post about the legislation and the petition it had already reached its initial goal of 200,000 signatures, but they were still accepting more. As of yesterday morning — just 2 weeks later — 1,013,613 people had lent their names to the campaign. 
The petition has increased its goal from 200,000 signatures to 1,250,000. As of right now there are almost 1,085,000 signatures, meaning we only need less than 165,000 signatures until we reach our goal a second time. 
Click here to view and sign the petition to the state of California.
You don’t need to make an account with the website. The only requirements are your name, e-mail address, and zip code so please take a moment to lend your name to the campaign. 
As Bloom said when announcing his bill, “There is no justification for the continued captive display of orcas for entertainment purposes. These beautiful creatures are much too large and far too intelligent to be confined in small, concrete tanks for their entire lives.” 
SeaWorld hired Montgomery in an attempt to defeat the bill to ensure that they can continue making profit from the mistreatment and torture of these poor whales. So please help put an end to their mistreatment by signing the petition and spreading the word. 

We need less than 80,000 signatures left to reach our goal of 1,250,000! It takes less than 20 seconds to sign so please do and spread the word!

HIV Has Been Cured in a Child for the First Time

HIV Cure: New Drug ‘Vacc-4x’ May Become First Functional Cure Against the Virus

The Man Who Had HIV and Now Does Not

This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.

Actually, the recent news of a baby cured of HIV is actually the SECOND baby cured of the virus, isn’t it? I am sure I remember that being mentioned before, that this is the second case, though both were ‘cured’ in different ways/were not part of the same case study.

There are astounding breakthroughs and incredible research going on in HIV treatment, therapy, prevention and cure every day, but it barely ever gets touched on. Which is absurd…it should be a primary focus for us as a people really, right up there with climate change and fixing the economy.
