to all the carnists who say going vegan is “too expensive:” i just got back from scavenging the dumpsters behind whole foods and found
one ripped dishwashing glove (repaired with duct tape)
two used duracell batteries
the key to a volvo
a losing lottery ticket from last night’s mega millions drawing

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ
This will create so many jobs and regenerate so many communities and aaaaaahhhhhhh

more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Green_Wall
it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!

Oh yes, acacia trees.
They fix nitrogen and improve soil quality.
And, to make things fun, the species they’re using practices “reverse leaf phenology.” The trees go dormant in the rainy season and then grow their leaves again in the dry season. This means you can plant crops under the trees, in that nitrogen-rich soil, and the trees don’t compete for light because they don’t have any leaves on.
And then in the dry season, you harvest the leaves and feed them to your cows.
Crops grown under acacia trees have better yield than those grown without them. Considerably better.
So, this isn’t just about stopping the advancement of the Sahara - it’s also about improving food security for the entire sub-Saharan belt and possibly reclaiming some of the desert as productive land.
Of course, before the “green revolution,” the farmers knew to plant acacia trees - it’s a traditional practice that they were convinced to abandon in favor of “more reliable” artificial fertilizers (that caused soil degradation, soil erosion, etc).
This is why you listen to the people who, you know, have lived with and on land for centuries.

Artyom can stumble upon two scavengers resembling Strelok and Doctor (Doc) from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl in the Theater station. They will converse about having wasted all of their money from the last job on drinks and plan their next trip to the surface, hoping to one day be promoted to full-fledged Stalkers. If the player lingers around for a bit, they talk to him directly. 
"Ha! A stalker! Man, if you ever need help with , like, carrying something heavy from the surface…We’ll be ready to join you in a couple of days. We won’t charge much!"

the weirdest shit about the whole “your fave is problematic” thing is that y’all hunt down minor details about the past of celebrities while also refusing to acknowledge how you acted like two years ago

Jerusalem-based industrial designer Naomi Kizhner created a series of sci-fi jewelry ideas that harvest kinetic energy from a human’s body and turns it into electricity, called “Energy Addicts”. Each spike is inserted into a vein; the blood stream spins the wheel and creates movemen.The jewelry is made from gold and 3D-printed biopolymer. Each piece contains sharp stings that neatly pierce the skin and serve as bio energy harvesting devices. The energy is generated from the body’s subconscious movements, such as blood flow or blinks of an eye. Kizhner created several designs to be worn on different body parts and to draw energy from specific physiological functions. Via Reddit

this is a fantastic idea because whoever wears this retarded shit deserves to die of the 80 kinds of blood poisoning they will certainly get View high resolution
