AT 10 AM the Saturday before inauguration day, on the sixth floor of the Van Pelt Library at the University of Pennsylvania, roughly 60 hackers, scientists, archivists, and librarians were hunched over laptops, drawing flow charts on whiteboards, and shouting opinions on computer scripts across the room. They had hundreds of government web pages and data sets to get through before the end of the day—all strategically chosen from the pages of the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration—any of which, they felt, might be deleted, altered, or removed from the public domain by the incoming Trump administration. … By the end of the day, the group had collectively loaded 3,692 NOAA web pages onto the Internet Archive, and found ways to download 17 particularly hard-to-crack data sets from the EPA, NOAA, and the Department of Energy. Organizers have already laid plans for several more data rescue events in the coming weeks, and a professor from NYU was talking hopefully about hosting one at his university in February. But suddenly, their timeline became more urgent. On the day that the Inside EPA report came out, an email from O’Brien popped up on my phone with “Red Fucking Alert” in the subject line.“We’re archiving everything we can.”
Important message from Mermaid Kelly: Ariel is swimming by to encourage you to help protect her home. Even though she collects human “treasures”, other sea creatures and marine life become injured or even die because of human trash, including thousands of sea turtles, whales, and over one million seabirds each year. All of this trash can harm & entangle fish, sharks, and damages coral reefs. In the Pacific Ocean there is even a huge area called the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” This is a large area filled with debris, approximately the size of Texas. The debris extend down 20 feet & contains 3.5 million tons of garbage. It is estimated to double size in the next 5 years. A marine biologist & ocean activist, Sylvia A. Earle once stated “If the ocean dies, we die.” Without the ocean, we can’t survive. Around 50% of the oxygen we breath comes from phytoplankton in the ocean. Many Ocean Activists have already taken action to preserve these creatures and our home, now it’s your turn! You can start taking the steps to helping all of the life in the ocean by using fewer plastic products, recycling, doing local beach/ river clean ups, support local organizations working to protect the ocean, influence change in your local community, but most importantly, educate yourself on the ocean & how to protect it.

The oceans — their sea levels, temperatures and acidity all on the rise — do not read Breitbart News in the United States or the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom, which by spreading science denial put the most vulnerable at risk.
I want to spend an eternity looking at her. A beauty older than time. Whose strength encompasses all that she does. I want to spend an eternity beside her. Waking up to her sun-kissed face. With a cold demeanor that envelopes you in warmth as you delve within her. Her heartbeat never staying constant. Her intentions often misunderstood. Her desire for love can engulf entire nations. She didn’t belong to me, for she welcomed any and all that would approach. Inviting those harboring reproach. She broke her own heart multiple times getting attached to souls fated with mortality. My love was forever chained to herself. It’s no surprise she tried so hard to escape. I want to spend an eternity protecting her. My love, the ocean.
INFJ’S are like assassins. Quiet and hidden among the world. Living in the shadows. Just watching everyone go about their day-to-day life. But keep in mind that if anyone gets hurt, especially one of our family members or friends, you will feel the rage of our anger and the hurt of our soul. So keep on good terms.
(we don’t wanna cut you but we will if we have to)
Happy New Year! The ocean is full of amazing things to appreciate and discover. We’ll be busy working hard to protect the ocean and the creatures that depend on it (including humans!) through education, research and conservation.
This weekend past, I went to the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary (the aquarium!), and the first critters I came across were two very chill cuttlefish. I fell in love; they are precious and we must protect them.
here is a City for Cancer Here is their shelter … By the sea but protected from the ocean violence by guarding cliff faces Purple like the colour of pearls in the Cancer heart A good vision of the moon, their lunar electricity, and the frost of snow so it can be blankets and cuddles … A crevasse that can hear the oceanic cries of the world… But it is also a tremendous valley for making music and memories
I did a thing.
I made a protection, calming, beauty charm for a friend.
Incense ash from rose, jasmine, lily, lavender, and lotus. Sea salt hand ground. Hand ground sea shells. Purple wax from a lavender scented candle which also lend to the sealing of the cork.
I gave it to a friend and she was so happy she almost started crying. Told her the care for it and how to use it and she was so welcoming to it.
