I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life

My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.

I need to remember this for uniforms.

Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!

FRIDA is a teddy bear of a eight year old gray and white female purebred Siberian Husky who has found in Monterey Park on March 21st and brought to the Downey Shelter. Weighing seventy-six pounds, she walks well on leash and is probably housetrained. She is friendly towards people and other dogs, and we think she will enjoy the company of children - Frida is less independent and more affectionate than Siberian Huskies usually are. A staff and volunteer favorite, Frida is the perfect indoor pet for anyone with the space for a big stuffed toy. CLICK IMAGE TO WATCH VIDEO.
Frida’s Impound Number is A4687750. For more information on Frida, please contact her Adoption Coordinator Samantha at samantha@hope4animals.org or the Downey Animal Care Center at 562-940-6898.

PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!

IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.

Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.

If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
  • Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
  • Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
  • If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
  • See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!

Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.

Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.

Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.

If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

OH MY FUCK I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.

Fucking invasives. Signal boost.

Re-reblogging because I checked Snopes, and not only is this shit true, but the text on this is pretty much the same as it is there! Stay safe, kiddos.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, these are currently the states and provinces in North America where Giant Hogweed is present. Even if your state/province is “clear” that doesn’t mean that it is not there. If you see Giant Hogweed in your yard or anywhere please call your DOA! This stuff is mad deadly!

Also here is a human for size reference. Since they are huge it should be easy enough to see and spot when fully grown.

The burns can also be very bad, far worse than any poison ivy. Just Google ‘Giant Hogweed Burns’ and you’ll see. It can cause bad blistering, red painful rashes, and more. Please be careful of this plant!

What happens if a song disappears forever? What if instead of a song it was the endangered Sumatran tiger? 
Our National Zoo teamed up with portugaltheman to create a limited edition record that will go extinct if it doesn’t reproduce. There are only 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild. Reblog to spread the message and learn how you can help.

These beautiful and surreal images belong to the Sony 4K campaign that was shot in Costa Rica, where millions of flower petals were spread in a little village. The team collected botanical life (around 3,5 tons of petals) for two weeks and then proceeded to create the live art pice: “The petals were blown and exploded throughout the landscape, whirled through the prismatic suburban streets, blasted out from a neighboring volcano, and blanketed on a pathway”. The photographs were taken by Nick Meek and the campaign was created by McCann.
