The Kea New Zealand. by Bernard Spragg. NZ
Via Flickr:
The kea is the only alpine parrot on Earth, and is generally found 600 to 2000m in the South Island from Nelson to Fiordland. Until 1971 a bounty was put on kea beaks and an estimated 150,000 kea were killed. Their numbers have steadily been declining and now there are only a few thousand left. Research of Canterbury University found that kea select more fruiting species, consumed more fruit and dispersed more seeds than all other alpine birds combined. It is believed that kea once inhabited the Chatham Islands and the North Island.

Uh….. 

So I guess Sakura con is over. I walked around a bit. I took some pictures. I ate some mod pizza. It was alright.

Here is a small sample of photos I took over the weekend while I mull over what the best ways to upload these photos are.

Like there’s Flickr but finding photos is a pain there, or there’s tumblr, but it limits you to 10 photos a set… Yea I don’t think there’s some go to photo album dump in any official capacity on facebook. I took enough that throwing up photo sets on Tumblr is obnoxious, but not enough that I need some heavy duty album.  So… thoughts?

When it comes to detox diets, we totally get the appeal.

Who’s not drawn to the idea of flushing all the toxins out of our bodies — a sort of spring cleaning of our insides?

And yes, several years back, I even remember trying — if only for a day — the trendy cayenne-pepper liquid cleanse (as seen in this Mindy Kaling clip from The Office) as part of a cleansing/detox diet.

But it turns out, as we’ve reported, the whole idea that you need to go on a special, draconian diet to detox your body really has no scientific backing.

From Detox To Elimination Diets, Skipping Sugar May Be The Best Bet
