How to cover up tattoos!

  • use a red lipstick covering the outlines
  • pat on a light concealer, using a setting powder
  • pat on your skin tone concealer, and clean up any mistakes using baby wipes to remove excess concealer

Once a patch of wild space is named a protected area, it’s very easy to think that the place will be protected forever, that it is safe from the meddling hands of developers. But the trouble is, this is exactly the wrong thing to think, and sadly the Portland Bight Protected Area (PBPA) is a perfect example of why. PBPA is the largest protected area in Jamaica, a 724 square-mile patch that includes limestone forests, two-thirds of Jamaica’s mangroves, and sea-grass beds and coral reefs that act as nurseries for fish and shellfish species. And it is about to be plowed under.

Conservation photographer Robin Moore, a fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, packed his camera gear and took a trip to the area to document the endangered species that find refuge here, and the lives of the 50,000 people who depend on the protected area for their livelihoods. Moore’s hope is that his images will win the hearts of the rest of the world, who perhaps can convince the Jamaican government to end their plans for development. One photographer, a pile of camera gear, and whole lot of determination could push this issue into the public eye across the world…

Can we please just tell every middle schooler this instead of making them feel embarrassed by their existence and their need to try new things?

Damn, every time I see this go by my dash, it has, like, 10K more notes.  I’m awed by how much it seems to have meant to so many people, and incredibly moved to see so many notes saying that this has mattered.

I wish I had this at fourteen I wish I had this all my life before AFTER highschool. You can please take these words to heart. Please.


Pygmy Falcon (Polihierax semitorquatus)

Also known as the African Pygmy Falcon, P. semitorquatus is a small species of falcon, that occurs in eastern and southern Africa. The population in eastern Africa (P. s. castanotus) occurs from Sudan to Somalia south to Uganda and Tanzania. The population in southern Africa (P. s. semitorquatus) occurs from Angola to South Africa.

True to its common name P. semitorquatus is very small at only 19-20 cm long, making it the smallest raptor in Africa. Pygmy falcons typically inhabit dry bush habitats and will feed on insects, small mammals, birds, and reptiles. Pygmy falcons will usually in the nests of weavers, and even though they feed on bird will rarely go after their weaver neighbors.
