do you have extra

anonymous asked:

Hey! So WMSS suggests using foil tape on heat tape, I'm not too sure if you do the same thing, but I can't seem to find foil tape anywhere and was wondering if you knew of any safe alternatives? Like perhaps packing tape or electric tape? Thank you!

Foil tape is 100% the best option, but if its not available to you you can use duct tape as a replacement. When you do that though, you have to put extra space between the bottom of the cage and what it is sitting on to ensure that no over heating happens :)

How to Hermione the Shit out of Your Studying.

(Some Hermione inspired study tips.)

Want to study.

Hermione studies as hard as she does because she wants to. So try to think about WHY you want to study, is it because you are interested in the subject? Is it because you want a certain grade? Is it because you want to pass the subject to go on to something else? Once you figure that out, then you can go from feeling like you “have” to study to feeling like you want to study. Remember that you don’t have to study if you don’t want to, but usually you will want to, because you would rather study than face the consequences of not studying.


While it may not be necessary to read every word of every textbook before your classes even start, it will be extremely helpful to read any chapters, articles, websites or extra information your lecturers give you. Do any extra questions as well. Usually your lecture would have gone out of his/her way to get this information to you, this is because they think it will help you, and it probably will.

Answer questions in class.

Trying to answer questions in class will help to keep you concentrated on the topic at hand, you can’t answer questions if you haven’t been paying attention. This will not only show your lecturer that you are interested in learning (and they may be more lenient on you if you are ever after an extension or miss a class) it will also help you to identify when you don’t understand something, and gives you the chance to clarify.

Help others.

“Its leviooosar, not leviosaarr.” … Okay, so maybe try help others in a more understanding way. But when you see someone struggling with something in class or an assignment, help them. This is something that pretty much everyone will appreciate, and it can also help you to solidify your own knowledge. There have been heaps of studies that show that you are much more likely to retain information once you have taught someone else about it.

Get things done early.

This is one that pretty much everyone knows, but very few ever do. Try to be one of those few, if you get assignments or readings done early, then you can always ask questions if you get stuck on something, have more time to work on other things, not feel stressed about it, you’ll have the chance to polish up anything you aren’t super happy with and more. Trust me, it is worth it.

Find a nice environment to study in.

Some people like their desk while others like their bed and some people fall asleep if they study in bed. Find something that works for you. I find that if I take a trip to my local café or library I am much more motivated because I have gone there for the purpose of studying.. Whereas at home I sometimes I find it too distracting.

Don’t forget to take time to have fun.

While Hermione does study a lot, she also has fun and enjoys herself. Studying and learning is awesome, but give yourself some time to unwind. Don’t let yourself get burnt out, take regular brakes during long study sessions, and try to set bigger chunks of time aside some days to relax, play games or see friends. You might feel fine after the first 2 hours, but after an 8 hour study session with no breaks.. You may not feel so motivated…

Two questions: Considering that Medic has eight team mates, and have eight extra souls is oddly specific, do you think that he…attained them through his team mates somehow?

And, if so -  

-  which team mate’s soul did he just sell for that pen?

What do you have to say those who call us (females) emotional / sensitive / weird / extra / sarcastic / difficult / or moody? It’s what makes us who we are. We’re human. Who says guys don’t have feelings and don’t cry? I’ve seen lots of guys cry. I honestly wouldn’t pay attention to people that say those things.

I’m not the kind of person who’s really very good at forming her own opinions on things. It takes me a while to kind of ponder and crystallize how I feel about most topics, and pretty much everything winds up having elements where it looks different from different angles, so I never have like, A Solid Feeling I Always Feel About This Thing.

(I used to worry about it a lot, when I was a kid. There are still some songs/bands/albums I listen to and remember my deep anxiety: how could I tell if this was Good? Other people seemed to always know– that music’s shit and we’ll laugh at you, this music’s Great but only right now, that music there is Classic and no matter what will always be Good. How do you know which is which.)

Anyway. So, I don’t really have An Opinion Of My Own about Rogue One.

What I do have, after reading many reviews, is an interesting observation to make:

Every person of color I’ve read a review from loved it. I don’t know that my sample is representative, but for so many people, it fulfilled such a deep-seated need inside them that, several reviewers independently said, they hadn’t realized they still had, to see someone who looked like them in this context. And that’s incredibly touching, to me. I know I cried to see a lady pilot among the 70s-moustached dudes! My only tears of the movie. So I get that, I do, and I’m so excited for it.

The critical reviews I’ve read have mostly not been from people of color. And they’ve made excellent points– how terrible is it, for one, that the only way the powers that be could see their way to putting so many men of color into a Star Wars film was to kill them all in the end? The hope, and eventual success, of the Rebellion is literally built on the ashes and bones of women and people of color, who were expressly not included in the glorious success at the end of the original trilogy.

(And also: where are the women of color. Where are the women, period. What the fuck, racists and misogynists were already going to protest your movie; you could have done whatever you wanted at this point, so why was this all you wanted??)

I feel like the critical points are good to make. And I feel like that’s maybe who should be making them. Sure, there are valid points to be argued about structural or thematic weaknesses, sure there are still complaints to be made. But. 

If you got to have representation for the first time in this movie, you should feel free to enjoy it uncritically. 

if you have never experienced food insecurity, i urge you in the coming weeks to read up on preservation, portioning, using every part of the vegetable or animal you’re cooking, etc. Work with leftovers, learn how long things last frozen, fermented or canned as well as proper storage. Learn how to stretch your food and make do, when you have a little extra grocery money invest in canned and dried bulk foods that you can store. Read up on cheap but nutritionally dense food (stock made from carcass and peelings, nutritional yeast, potatoes and other hearty tubers, cabbage, dried legumes). Youve all seen the stuff about the economy, I dont need to talk about it here. Build these skills and hope you dont need to rely on them for survival–theyre good things to know regardless. Depression Era guides are very useful!

Ways to tell whether your source is biased:

From my experience, those types of websites will tell half-truths or outright lie on occasion just so they can twist whatever to their narrative.

Obviously most news sources you find on the internet will have a twinge of bias, so it’s quite hard to find a completely unbiased source unless you’re lucky or have enough spare time to do some extra digging through the internet.

Anyways, here are five different methods (I’ve learned on my time here) on ruling out bias:

-The author of the source deviates from the facts by adding their unneeded prejudices and opinions. Basically the article or source sounds like a thought piece/propaganda rather than a reliable source.

-Loaded language within the article or page. Do they constantly use buzzwords?

-The website, newspaper; etc has a pattern of publishing information that only supports their views. (This is the one I’d worry about the least, but I think it’s still something to take into account.)

-Look at the name of the website or even the name of the webpage. Does it sound like it would lean towards a certain political agenda? Be skeptical of those ones cause those will definitely show strong bias a lot. (CIP: Red State, Right Wing News, Feministing, Everydayfeminism, Democratic Underground, Tea Party Tribune)

-You don’t have to completely rule out websites like those above though. Try to look for more objective sources within the articles you find: tables, graphs, any kind of statistic, AND VIDEOS. Chances are those might link to another website that publishes impartial/raw data.

-If you still can’t tell whether something shows bias (or you can’t find anything that has little to no bias), look at different sources (particularly those with opposing political views), average all of those out, and come to your own conclusion based off of those sources.
