You swore an oath to return the Stark girls to their mother. Lady Stark is dead. Arya is probably dead, too, but there’s still a chance to find Sansa and get her somewhere safe.

"And then there’s you…"

A non!PDS au set in 2009 where a grieving and suicidal Kieren Walker meets Simon Monroe - an Irish drug-addict seeking rehabilitation. Stilted conversations, mixed messages, unhealthy co-dependency and soppiness ensue.

the last harry potter film was a formative moment of closure for many a childhood but the second to last harry potter where harry and hermione suddenly start dancing to a nick cave song was a hint at the sheer surreal chaos of adulthood

Help save the honey bees! Please reblog and share :)

I’m very skeptical about this. Last I’ve heard, CCD is caused by a combination of factors, and to blindly point a finger at one source without references just ticks my bullshit meter. Anyone got science to back this up?

I checked out this page on the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association website, and found a couple of recent papers on the subject (though, granted, they are against the use of neonicotinoid, so it might be a one-sided story). The general consensus seems to be (bee?) that sublethal doses of neonicotinoids cause changes in behavior and physiology which leads to colony collapse - immune suppression to make them more susceptible to disease, negative change in foraging behavior, abandonment of poisoned hives, etc - so, yes, it seems that it is a combination of factors, which are aggravated by pesticide poisoning.

I’ve seen a bunch of “save the bees” post floating around tumblr, but this is the first one anyone bothered to put sources on.
Thank you. (However I’m not going to look at the sources now, but hopefully I will remember to do so later.)

Not to mention that stopping the use of these pesticides is one of the easiest things we could control— if people were willing. It’s hard to control parasites and internal issues that the bee faces, but it is not hard to stop spraying crops with harmful pesticides.
