The bumblebee was officially added to the endangered species list.


  • Go plant an organic flower native to wherever you are
  • Leave your “weeds” alone they probably aren’t hurting anything
  • Stop using/buying Roundup and all other insecticides, herbicides, pesticides. 
  • If you have a bee problem (which almost never happens) call a local beekeeper! They will remove them safely free of charge
  • Bumblebees usually nest underground and just wanna be left alone! They won’t hurt you. To prevent destroying their habit during hibernation, avoid mowing yards until April or May. If you do mow, raise the blades to the highest setting

Please save my fat clumsy fuzzy friends I love them and they’re very good pollinators.

Maybe in ten years from now they’ll make a movie about the world today.

Maybe they’ll make a movie about a father in Syria contemplating whether to kill himself, his wife or his children in a desperate attempt to stop the Regime from getting their hands on them.

Maybe they’ll make a movie about an 8 year old Rohingya boy who was thrown into the fire in front of his mother after his village was set alight.

Maybe they’ll make a movie about a young orphaned girl in C.A.R, crying as she remembers her sexual abuse at the hands of UN “peacekeepers” who do as they please without consequences.

Or maybe they’ll make a movie about a daughter in Gaza who picks up the phone to hear an unfamiliar voice letting her know her family has 60 seconds to run before the bombs drop.

And maybe we’ll see it and shed some tears - but we shouldn’t be crying because of the atrocities that occurred.
We should cry because we watched as these horrors unfolded and in our silence betrayed them.

Executive action has been used to halt DAPL construction in Standing Rock and have it re-routed away from Sioux reservation. This shows the power, magnitude, and spirit of Indigenous resistance, infused by solidarity all across the world.

This does not mean “look, we won!” It means “let’s keep resisting and keep winning!” There are hundreds of oil pipelines across the US, with an overwhelming majority of them running directly through Native and Black communities. There are current pipeline battles happening in Florida, Alabama, and South Caroline, for example, that are not getting as much media attention as Standing Rock who still need our support.

Let it be good news that the people of Standing Rock have radically shaped the course of history, but also let it be a message that we have to continue to do this work. Remember: an Indigenous struggle is an environmental struggle. And an environmental struggle is inherently a PoC struggle.

This is not a chance to praise President Obama for waiting over 5 months to step in and put an end to the madness taking place at Standing Rock, rather a chance to recognize the power of the people to create change. The power of organizing revolutionary community-based resistance. This is a chance to ask the government why they waited over 5 months to stop the construction of this pipeline through Native land. A chance to realize that there are over 75 pipelines in construction right now across the US, and they are overwhelmingly through Indigenous and Black communities. 

With a Trump presidency coming in a month, the Indigenous resistance will need more and more of the solidarity we’ve demonstrated this year. We all will.

*This does not mean “look, we did it! We won!” This means “let’s continue resisting, let’s keep winning!”*

'Many wounded' in Istanbul nightclub attack - BBC News

‘Many wounded’ in Istanbul nightclub attack
Many people have been wounded in an attack on a nightclub in Istanbul, Turkey’s NTV reports.

Footage appears to show a number of ambulances and police vehicles outside the Reina nightclub, in the Besiktas area of the city.

NTV says two attackers were involved, with CNN Turk reported they were dressed in Santa costumes.

Istanbul had been on high alert for any terror attacks, with some 17,000 police officers on duty in the city.

Tonight, we are genuinely scared. Deeply saddened.

Hard as it is for us all to believe, Donald Trump is our next president.

There are simply no words to capture the collective pain we feel right now. We’ve elected a racist, bigoted, sexist, predatory man with fascist tendencies and a huge temper.

Jake and I have spent every waking moment of the past five years working toward the mission of informing, inspiring and empowering our generation to change the world. We tried to channel the best ideas from our generation. And in the moment when our generation became the biggest voting bloc in American history, our voices fell silent.

We failed.

That hurts. We’ve asked so many friends to drop everything and join us. We’ve made promises to our community of millions of peers. We’ve obsessed over harnessing the power of ideas supercharged through our global networks. And yet tonight, in the face of the most damning threat to our future, we’ve hit rock bottom.

So what are we going to do about it?

1) We will empathize. Comfort your loved ones and stand with those who are immediately threatened. Our friends, siblings, parents and many loved ones could be affected by Trump’s draconian policies. There will be genuine fear, grief and even panic. Reach out to those you love.

2) We will report. We will shine a light on our generation’s brightest stars and best activists. We will create both physical and digital spaces for open dialogue that gives voice. We will stay focused and make our generation heard.

3) We will mobilize. Fight to defend our values, our principles and our basic tenets of democracy and human rights. We will deliberately and strategically insert ourselves in the political process to block Trump’s hurtful policies and force him to reckon with us. We will take up this fight head on and aim to minimize his damage at every turn.

We won’t fail again. We are ready to dig in. There will be no mass deportations under our watch. There will be no reversal of equality under the law. We will dedicate every minute of every day to ensure our voices are actually heard.

We will build this movement from the ground up, with the best ideas from everyone. We want to hear you. We want your feedback. We’re ready to build this together. Because this is #NotOurAmerica.
