Baby Mouse Is Going Strong!

We’ve been feeding this mouse every 2 hours since it was found without its mother. It’s feeding well and grown lots of new fur compared to when it arrived as a pinkie!

Wish him luck and click ReBlog to raise awareness that mice deserve a second chance too!

Baby mouse back to the wild

A month ago, we admitted six tiny, baby mice that were abandoned by their mother… After a lot of hard work and tears, only one survived… It’s very hard to hand rear baby mice, so we are very happy that at least one of them made it back to the wild.

A big thank you to our volunteer, Penny, who released the survivor in her garden. Good luck, little mouse!

 Merton is a minimalist house located in Albert Park, Australia, designed by Thomas Winwood Architecture + Kontista+Co. Inspired by the existing Victorian house on a corner site the project reinterprets the bay windows and scale and arrangement of internal spaces to create new contemporary kitchen and living spaces at the rear of the existing house. The dark stained curvilinear timber wall continues the line of the facade and creates a shadow of the original house and discreetly sits in the garden. A large curved glass window and bench seat in the kitchen and two large sliding windows create contemporary bay window arrangements where the residents can sit in the sun and view the garden.

Volumes of Masculinity: Modern home has very strong and striking appearance

This very masculine looking house has a stunning exterior that focuses on vertical and parallel lines. The exterior has been constructed using wooden panelling and rich brown coloured walls to give it a striking and strong appearance. To the rear of the house, it becomes apparent just how large the house really is, with volumes overlapping and protruding from the natural lines of the house, all with large floor-to-ceiling windows.

The column’s real sin is to mistake symptoms for causes. And Brooks does so because it’s ideologically comfortable to cast stones at the poor for their behavior, and ideologically uncomfortable to admit that their behavior is partly an outgrowth of extreme inequality and social immobility. Blaming the poor for abandoning social norms around reproduction and child-rearing makes our glass houses a bit comfier. It makes it easier to ignore our low tax rates and weak safety net. It makes it easier for us to ignore dramatic inequities in our education system. It lets us blame, and scorn the poor. And nothing gladdens the proud human heart quite like judging the weak.
