Day 386 - Nuoh | ヌオー | Quagsire

Nuoh is a slow moving Pokémon, often compared to Yadon in terms of laziness. They float along water bodies all day, taking in the sun. At night, they sleep. Nuoh is only awake for 2 hours a day, and most of that time is spent on its side. The one activity most like to partake in is rolling around in mud.

(P.S. New Pokémon drawing every single day. Commissions open! animeleepocket@gmail.com. Yes, that is a reference to the XY anime episode. I hope Dedenne meets up with Satoshi’s Numelgon again some day.)

Hibiscus hardwood cuttings, rooted in willow tea.

Willow (Salix spp.) trees contain a natural rooting hormone – as well as antifungal and antibacterial compounds – in their bark and leaves. If you steep willow tissues overnight in hot water, you can use the water the next day to encourage cuttings of certain plants to grow roots.

Some plants, like these hibiscus, will grow roots in the water, if you keep changing it. Some cuttings should just be soaked overnight in willow water, and then rooted in a growth medium the next day.

Deepwater spill killed dolphins in record numbers

Scientists are now confident the abnormally high numbers of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) that have died—and continue to die—in the oil spill area are suffering from ailments caused by oil byproducts. Although researchers don’t have exact numbers of how many dolphins perished following the spill, they’ve found 1281 stranded and dead between 30 April 2010 and 17 May 2015—the highest number ever recorded in the Gulf of Mexico. Barataria Bay, Louisiana, was particularly hard hit by the spill. Half of the dead dolphins found in this region between June 2010 and November 2012 had a thin adrenal gland cortex—a key indicator of an ailment known as adrenal insufficiency which often leads to death in dolphins, particularly among those who are pregnant. This same lesion was found in one of every three dolphins examined in oil-contaminated areas across Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, the team reports in PLOS ONE.
