Fun guy chillin’ in South American rainforest finds plastic-eating fungi
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

    a kid from my high is fucking trending on facebook because of a stupid petition to get a senior photo of him holding a cat into the yearbook…

    (x)

    UPDATE!!

    My principal decided to join him in a photo.

    The new photograph will go in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and rescue animals like Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne.

REBLOGGING THIS POST WILL BE EQUAL TO YOU SIGNING A PETITION TO STOP SM


WE CAN AT LEAST MAKE A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE.
WE CAN LIVE WITHOUT THEIR MUSIC, BUT THEY CAN’T KEEP LIVING LIKE THIS.
LETS STOP WATCHING SM’S CHANNEL ON YT. LET’S UNFOLLOW SM’S TWITTER, FB, ANYTHING. WE CAN DO THIS
TREND #STOPSMENT EVERYWHERE
I KNOW YOU CARE AS MUCH AS I DO. FIGHTING
(this will probably get no attention. ppl may laugh at me. bc fans are a strong group, but alot of us are weak in mind. we should remeber that these idols aren’t our objects as well, and if we know that they’re treated in injustice, shouldn’t we take action?)






ATTENTION EVEN IF YOU AREN’T A KPOP FAN: This Korean entertainment company is disgusting and should be shut down, it is what I woulf consider a “slave company”. The celebrities under this company are starved with extreme dieting practices, are forced to practice and perform even with injuries(broken fingers, back problems, torn muscles, etc.). The company confiscated their phones, and some haven’t seen their families in YEARS. Not only that but the celebrities and trainees are often hit if they do something against this company’s wishes. They’re overworked and paid extremely little, please, reblog and post this because NOBODY should feel so self-entitled over another person to control them and abuse them the way this company does. Celebrities have tried to stand up to them themselves before but are now banned from many Korean variety shows, more specifically the group JYJ which had filed a law suit against this company, and former Super Junior member Hangeng, who was forced to leave after he lost the case. This is inhumane, this company needs to realize that the celebrities under their name are humans They have rights, and are not objects, and SM does not own them. PLEASE reblog this, and post it on other sites as well. Even something that seems as small as this can go a long way. Thank you so much for reading this.

Please you guys. Let’s really stop them.

U.S. Border Patrol agents have responded to threats and assaults with escalating violence and lethal force. More than half of the 40+ deaths that happened at the hands of Border Patrol agents since 2005 occurred in the least 4 years. Our new investigation takes an in-depth look at one of those fatal shootings and the questionable investigation that followed. Read the full story.
