Maggie Q to Topline Limited Series ‘Red Flag’

Nikita star Maggie Q is taking on another iconic character, this time from Chinese history. The Mission: Impossible III alumna is set to headline a limited series from Steven Jensen’s Independent Television Group, Mike Medavoy & Benjamin Anderson of Phoenix Pictures (Black Swan), and Fred Fuchs (Transporter). 

Titled Red Flag, the series is set in the early 1800s and centers on Ching Shih (Maggie Q), a beautiful young Chinese prostitute who goes on to become one of history’s most powerful pirates and head of the most successful crime syndicate in China. With over 100,000 sailors and 1500-plus vessels, Ching controlled the South China Sea while taking on the Imperial Chinese navy, the Portuguese navy, and the all-powerful British navy to eventually conquer them all. “It’s exciting to have the opportunity to share Ching Shih’s real-life story with audiences that are both familiar and unfamiliar with her prominent history,” Maggie Q said.

FINALLY.

[Image Description: The cartoon child depicted asks their mother: “Momma how come Daddy never cooks or cleans?”
The mother responds: “The division of labour which allows for men like your father to generate an excess of his labour which is assigned a higher capital than ours, despite its necessity and importance, thus allowing him a more privileged social status and to maintain this division of labour. This is a root of the patriarchy.”]

Based on this (x). Conclusion: they’re still fuckers. 

Or maybe daddy works all week to provide us money for food and clothes

Because daddy’s labour is arbitrarily placed at a higher value and the work he does all week is no more important or legitimate than domestic labour. The capital value of the same relative labour is dependent on the gender of the person its performed by, and the capital values of different, specific kinds of labour, are dependent on the gender of the person who usually performs them in a society. The work easily available to women is priced cheap or free, and the work women have to struggle harder to get is still worth less capital than that same work when performed by men. 
In short, daddy gets to choose what he gets to work on, and the job he gets to choose can easily generate more than enough money to feed and shelter more than one person.  In this scenario, women still have to do work, but are often forced to depend on others to support them, let alone able to consider supporting others with their labour. 
In some cases, men might actually prefer their wives to do even less in terms of domestic labour, because it will be a symbol of conspicuous leisure, which is the mark of status. Women doing no work at all only happens if daddy has so much money and power that he wants to show it to people by how he can support a family with even less work on their part. 
A society directing women to be dependent on men, who like their women that way, is definitively a patriarchy, and the division of labour between men and women continues to reinforce gender inequality even today. 
Hopefully you can see more of the repercussions of EXACTLY WHAT WAS IMPLIED IN THE ORIGINAL POST now.

"Spooky" Quantum Entanglement Reveals Invisible Objects (via National Geographics).

In the new experiment, the physicists entangled photons in two separate laser beams with different wavelengths, and hence color: one yellow and one red.[…] The team passed the red light beam through etched stencils and into cutouts of tiny cats and a trident, about 0.12 inches (3 millimeters) tall. The yellow beam traveled on a separate line, never hitting the objects. What’s more, the etched shapes were designed to be invisible to yellow light. […] After the red light passed by the objects, the physicists ran it together with the yellow laser beam at both parallel and right angles. The red light was then discarded, and the yellow light headed for a camera. There, that yellow light revealed a picture of the object. And a negative of the picture emerged from the light that had interfered at a right angle.

"The phenomena really arises from the interference of the photons together,” Lemos says. “It’s not that the red photons have changed the yellow ones, it’s that quantum mechanics says they have to share [wavelength] phases which we can detect to see a picture.”

—-

Nothing spooky (unless you consider nature is spooky), and nothing new because quantum entanglement is known (and accepted) from 1935 or so. But an interesting experiment anyway, of course.

Asami probably has tons of Future Industries business to do in Republic City, but instead she says no, I want to go to the southern Water Tribe with my best friend because she might need me there and that’s infinitely more important.

No one else offered; it was just Asami. And the way she said it, like let me come with you please. She’d follow Korra anywhere if that’s what she wanted. And judging by her expression when Korra refused, this is not something Asami is just doing because she feels obligated as a friend; this is something she legitimately wants to do.

Asami just loves Korra a whole lot.
