More new photos of Gustaf Skarsgård by Beatrice Lundborg
photographer_beatrice_lundborg: When Gustaf Skarsgård traveled with Greenpeace through Antarctica, he was so taken by the beauty of the landscape that he began to cry. Now the actor talks about his polar journey among whales and penguins - but also about a difficult period in his life that transformed him from apocalyptic cynics to feeling hope for the future of the planet.

Update from my previous post (some of the pics in color)
Awww, thankyou lovely. Much appreciated. I work in an ICU so yeah, I’m going to be the one in the hazmat suit tending to the Covid-19′s. We have three confirmed in our community who are quarantined at home but no hospitalized cases yet. But the first Ontario death was in a hospital just a couple of hours from us so I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. We’ve had some very emotional sessions in preparation. The latest one involved priority setting, like who gets one of our seven ventilators and who doesn’t if push comes to shove. One decision we made was that possible organ donors would for sure be a low priority since that body can occupy an ICU bed and a ventilator for twelve plus hours while we jump through the hoops to get the organs harvested. That could mean more lives lost that don’t make the Corona virus tallies. I want people to know that it’s not just a matter of the government supplying us with more ventilators. We don’t have the staff for more. Nursing a ventilated patient is not something you learn in school, and the numbers of trained RN’s and Respiratory Therapists just aren’t there. But I’m so proud that our College of Nurses put out a call to recent retirees or RN’s who’ve opted out of the job market to reinstate their licenses for the duration and we had 3,000 respond, willing to come and help in whatever way they can. This is what it’s all about really.
Hi everyone! Some of you may be aware that Tumblr has been offering a beta of the new web interface for a little while now. This new web experience comes with some nice perks, such as color palettes, soft refreshing, a built-in tag viewer, and a better user blocking system. It’s also much more accessible for those with reading difficulties, and should be fully compatible with screen readers.
Unfortunately, such drastic improvements has come at a price for those that truly rely on XKit features - the new web interface is entirely new, written from the ground up, and thus, XKit doesn’t work on it.
Recently, we’ve become aware that some people have been forcibly opted into this beta with no option to exit it, and this lines up with the projection that this new web interface will be fully launched by April 2020. However, we do not expect to be able to fully update XKit for this new dashboard before its full launch.
“Oh no! Tumblr’s trying to kill XKit!”
You would be amazed at what’s actually happening. A few Tumblr engineers are working with us and are building things into the new dashboard specifically to make our jobs easier! So please, rest assured that XKit being broken currently is not part of some grand scheme to make the Tumblr dashboard unmodifiable - we just need more time to catch up, and we’re being helped along.
“But I can’t use Tumblr without XKit!”
This is a problem we see echoed a lot. While we will be updating XKit to work on the new dashboard, we can’t give anyone a timescale. So, in the meantime, we ask that you learn to use the new dashboard with all its new features, and give clear, constructive, and respectful feedback to Tumblr support.
Tumblr has already implemented some equivalents of existing XKit features, and we’re already expecting more to appear down the line. If you can successfully communicate why certain XKit features are invaluable to your usage of Tumblr, we may see that list grow.
This is not the end for XKit - merely a stage of metamorphosis.
Thank you all for your patience!

(1-Alex & Stellan)
Alex grew up in a family of actors (his father Stellan is one of the most famous actors in Sweden and his brother played the clown “Pennywise” in “It”). But for a long time he didn’t know if he should have followed in his father’s footsteps. No, everything started, as it should: he got his first role at 7 and at 13 he was already a national TV star. However, for the next 7 years he rebelled, didn’t go to auditions and didn’t want to be filmed. He had served in the army, studied at the university, until he finally decided that he wanted to be an actor.

In the book and in the script, it was a sword dance. I wanted to do a Highland Fling, because I felt like we’d seen the sword dance in the show. Duncan [Lacroix] did a really great version of that [in Season 1]. So actually what I’m doing is the Highland Fling, which is a dance that they do around the battlefield. It’s all about kicking off the chains of the British, there’s this this sort of leg kick, and the hand [positions] are about the stag. It’s about prowess, but it has a message as well. It’s one of sort of rebellion, so I liked that.
It was fun. The situation is, they’re letting loose for a little bit, and it’s kind of cool that Claire gets to see Jamie do that for the first time. She’s like, “Oh, he can actually move!” [Laughs] Pretty tough, because the boots I’m wearing are impossible to dance in, and you have to be really up on your toes. It’s kind of hard in those big boots. But I had a friend of mine who helped teach me; she’s a Highland dancer. ─ Sam Heughan
After sharing my first post in order to give a little more information about this virus that’s interesting the whole world in this period, I would like to bring your attention on some details/essential points from it.
- It is very important that you understand that panicking and raiding/assaulting supermarkets/pharmacies is the last thing to do.
Food and meds are not gonna be infected by the virus and those activities won’t be shut down by anyone because they are the primary needs especially in these situations. So please stop thinking you need supplies because some sort of apocalypse is here, because it’s not.
When people with a little brain tell you that you need to stay in your house, it means that any social contact has to be minimized to almost zero because the only way the virus spreads is throught that. Staying in your home will help you to stay safe (aka meet less people as possible so that you have the lowest probability to get infected).
- It is very important that you understand that underestimating the contagion means acting like stupids for two reasons:
1) you are ignoring the WHO statements and rules told by an organization whose main aim is to protect the health of the whole world and you are in this way helping the virus to spread and the contagion to not stop — yes, you are being the cause together with all the others who act like you;
2) the situation doesn’t need to be complicated to the point to scare people, but you are simplifing it very much by acting like it’s nothing dangerous: the COVID-19 spreads very quickly, it means that it’s very likely to get infected if there’s someone infected near you and you don’t even know and then you start passing it to whoever you come in contact too.
The problems of falling in this bad cycle are two: a) the probability the virus infects a person at risk goes higher second by second (literally); b) it is humanly impossible to take care of thousands of people all together in hospitals, that’s why if a severe number of people gets infected all at the same time and need to be hospitalized/go in intensive care, it could cause a whole collapse and drastic measures will be taken (like literally choosing who to save and who can’t be saved).
If you don’t believe what I’m writing, that’s what’s happening in Northern Italy in these exact days after containment/precaution measures have been taken too late, while the rest of the country is now all locked and quarantined to try to slow down the contagion and the spreading of the virus because a high number of infected/worse cases could cause a collapse of the entire system and in Nothern Italy hospitals are already at 200% capacity meaning they can’t afford not even one more infected by the cases there are raising day by day of thousands and thousands.
- Yes, COVID-19 numbers talk clearly about the fact that to be more at risk are elders, people with other diagnosed issues/diseases/illnesses and immunocompromised people, but this doesn’t allow you not even remotely to not care about them. That’s why WHO declared COVID-19 as a pandemic, because of the high level on misinformation, inaction and precautions not taken. The COVID-19 is less deadly than many other viruses before, but it’s killing so many more people because it is highly contagious.
- It is a fact that the whole world is going through a global infection by COVID-19 (it’s a pandemic), so the only ways to stop it are two: 1) it spreads and catches everyone and who dies, dies; 2) we can follow these preventive measures to contain it and protect as much people at risk as we can until a cure will be ready.
- The keyword is NO-PANIC. Panic causes tunnel vision and that’s the last thing we need, what we need now is AWARENESS, PRECAUTION, CARE, HYGIENE. We DON’T NEED raiding supermarkets, we are not going towards the apocalypse!
And we definitely do NOT need to buy tons of toilet paper because tbh I don’t even know what they need all that paper for maybe they want to play to become mummies.
- What we all need is to pay attention, STAY IN YOUR HOUSES as much as you can and go out only to buy food/meds
and toilet paper, wash your hands, practice hygienic measures etc.! (Read my first post to check all these details and make sure to navigate in the WHO official site for everything else you want to know.)
- Don’t listen to the ones who minimize the situation showing you graphs they don’t even know how to read. Don’t listen to media that spread panic either. Check numbers from verified sources, facts. Some countries are going through a hard time (China just recently is doing better, Italy has not even reached the peak of contagion and it’s already in a bad situation registering more than +2k cases of infection day by day and around +200/+250 new deaths each day, Iran is following and soon Europe and USA etc), others registered less than ten cases, others registered one and they are also resolved meaning the infected has not the virus anymore.
Trying to reassure people that COVID-19 is not a highly-deadly virus is one thing (which is also true, so do NOT panic), but covering your eyes to not be afraid is another. Know and BE AWARE that the risk is real especially if the infection spreads on a mass of people (high chance that in those people many are “at risk”), the contagion is quick and no country can afford a massively spread infection.
- If your country is not taking measures against the contagion, you need to start doing it yourself and when you go out you need to stay protected and clean (bring hands sanitizers with you, use only surgical masks and leave the high-tech ones to the doctors that stay 24/24 in contact with infected people, maintain social distance eg. more than 1 meter of distance from others, etc.).
Also, check this post and be sure to stay at home if you feel those symptoms, take care of yourself and if it gets worse (breathing issues, high temperature) seek medical care asap!
- If you can, DONATE, to all the hospitals/organizations that need more help in your country, even a small amount can make the difference.
- Last but not least: while I write posts, people don’t care about the virus, people make memes, people get sick, people recover and people die from it, others in other labs of the world are running non-stop to find a cure.
I’ve heard about these but I’m no expert so I’m just linking some excerpts here from articles I’ve found:
- A team of researchers from Sunnybrook, McMaster University and the University of Toronto has isolated severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the agent responsible for the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19.
- A commonly used arthritis drug has shown “excellent results” in two coronavirus patients and a national protocol for its extensive use against the virus should be drawn up, oncologist Paolo Ascierto of Naples’ Pascale Hospital (in Italy) said Wednesday. The drug, tocilizumab, “has shown it is effective against pneumonia caused by COVID-19,” he said. One of the two patients has even been taken off life support because of the good improvement in his condition. (An arthritis drug has been already tested/used also in patients with COVID-19 in China and the response was good there too).
I’m mostly concerned to write these posts also because in my country (Italy) the situation is still very bad, and the rest of the world is weeks behind us but what you can do is LEARN from our mistakes and have a better situation/response to the virus, and not ignore it.
