Slave gravesite in New York City

“SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU: 
The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.
The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan. 
Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.”
Literally, and daily.

Fucking terrible and heartless.

My heart just played dead

enslaved africans buried on stolen indigenous land… tell me something new about the U.S.

Today in NJ history: #OTD, July 12, 1916 in Matawan, #NewJeresy, eleven miles from the ocean, a shark attacked in Matawan Creek. Thomas Cottrell, a sea captain, spotted an 8 foot long shark in the creek in the early afternoon but locals dismissed him for being delusional from the extreme heat and recent commotion along the shore regarding shark attacks. Around 2:00 pm that day, local boys, including Lester Stillwell, 11, were playing in the creek at the Wyckoff dock. In the water the boys saw what appeared to be an “old black weather-beaten board or a weathered log.” A dorsal fin appeared in the water and the boys realized it was a shark. Before Stillwell could climb from the creek, the shark attacked him and pulled him underwater. The other boys ran for help and several men, including local businessman Watson Stanley Fisher, 24, came to investigate. Fisher and others dived into the creek to find Stillwell’s body, but he was also attacked by the shark in front of the townspeople. His right thigh was severely injured and he bled to death at Monmouth Memorial Hospital in Long Branch later that day. Stillwell’s body was recovered 150 feet upstream from the dock on July 14

This incident accounts for two for the only 15 total fatalities caused by sharks in New Jersey’s history.

It took like two minutes to figure out that the deaths were caused by a SHARK not a MAN who was eating a shark. HYPHENS Y’ALL

It’s unfortunate how many people didn’t take this message away from the debate.

Bill Nye was just SO ENTHUSIASTIC about the topic. You could tell.
For God’s sake, the man was trying to teach people about photosynthesis when asked what his favourite colour was. That’s a man that ADORES science and absolutely loves teaching people.
Suddenly, I was 12 and watching a Bill Nye The Science Guy episode at my grandma’s school while she was decorating the gym.

Bill Nye is like the Mister Roger’s of science
he legitimately cares about what he is talking about and enthusiastically encourages people to take something positive away from it

Bill Nye is the Mister Rogers of science
Bob Ross is the Mister Rogers of art
and Mister Rogers is… well, Mister Rogers
what if they could join forces



This is still the purest kind of view. Forget everything else and just watch the world. Learn about it. Be curious. Investigate.
I want that forever.

I legitimately feel like that’s our purpose. No one is born to learn nothing. Our entire lives are learning, and I think we should always strive to learn more.

To illustrate his emphasis on personality as a factor in foreign affairs, Biden recalled visiting Putin at the Kremlin in 2011: “I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it? A magnificent office!’ And he laughed. As I turned, I was this close to him.” Biden held his hand a few inches from his nose. “I said, ‘Mr. Prime Minister, I’m looking into your eyes, and I don’t think you have a soul.’ ”

“You said that?” I asked. It sounded like a movie line.

“Absolutely, positively,” Biden said, and continued, “And he looked back at me, and he smiled, and he said, ‘We understand one another.’ ” Biden sat back, and said, “This is who this guy is!”

Nembrotha cristata

like most nudibranchs this species has no official common name. they can be found in tropical Indo-Western Pacific oceans. they grow up to 50mm in length and their body is black but their external organs are edged in a almost neon green like color. they are poisonous and get their poison from the stinging cells of fallen Cnidarians.

Phylogeny

Animalia-Mollusca-Gastropoda-*-Polyceroidea-Polyceridae-Nembrothinae-Nembrotha

*Clades: Heterobranchia,Euthynerua,Nudipleura,Nudibranchia,Euctenidacea,Doridacea

My heart gets a boner over these little babies man

I will always reblog nudibranchs.

'No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations,' David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers, another developer specializing in luxury residencies, told The Real Deal in 2013. 'So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.'
