to be human: #6

I wrestle with the idea of existing in other people’s lives a lot. I think it’s because I recognize how much other humans exist in mine. Humans that I have limited relationships with still pop into my mind on a regular basis. I see them glowing and exploring new parts of themselves, and I silently cheer them on. I wonder where the humans that don’t seem to have a concrete home are; what they’re eating and what languages they’re surrounded by. I see the girl taking photos of her friends and I wonder how she is always able to capture them in their best moments.

If I can admire these remarkable humans from afar, then who’s to say I’m not one of those humans for someone else? I’m convinced our impact on other humans is not something we’re able to grasp. I’m convinced we’re alive in more minds than we give ourselves credit for.

Plants that aid with sleep and breathing problems.

Aloe Vera


Aloe Vera emits oxygen at night, this helps you combat insomnia and improves your overall sleep quality. It is a low maintenance plant that doesn’t need much watering or direct sunlight . It also reproduces easily.

Lavender

Lavender is a plant well known for inducing sleep and to reduce anxiety, the aroma given off by the lavender slows down your heart rate and reduces anxiety levels. Keep the plant in sunlight and water often.

Jasmine

The smell of jasmine has been shown to improve the quality of sleep and increase alertness and productivity. studies have shown that I reduces anxiety levels, leading to a great quality of sleep. Jasmine needs a good amount of sunlight as well as a little shade, the soil also needs to be damp at all times.


English Ivy

It may be beneficial  for those who sufferer from a respiratory problems such as asthma, studies show that English ivy can reduce air moulds to 94% in 12 hours. Keep in a well lit area and keep the soil damp at all times.

Snake plant  

Snake plants emit oxygen during the night, whilst taking in the carbon dioxide from the air inside your home. It also filters out any nasty house hold toxins from the air. This plant doesn’t need much attention as it only needs to be watered every 2-3 weeks and can be placed in any form of light sunlight.

Fun facts with Quinn! (This is so I don’t have to repeat myself on a regular basis) Everybody should have learnt this in secondary school/ high-school. As we all know all plants take in the the air we breath, removing the CO2 and releasing Oxygen. DURING THE NIGHT PLANTS STOP THIS PROCESS they only take in the air we breathe, this happens because they don’t have the necessary energy to complete photosynthesis. As you can see in the above post I have listed a few plants that can produce oxygen during the night. Please if you don’t believe me go and look for yourself it takes two seconds to look it up on the internet. Also there are no links for this information because I am no longer in college I do not see the need to write a bibliography for a tumblr post if you really care that much about where the information is sourced go and look for it yourself. Sorry for the shittyness but it is starting to grind my gears. With all my love tumblr ~Quinn!

So I’m reading the Mob Psycho 100 manga and I’ve reached the World Domination arc…and I would never thought that the Body Improvement Club members would be characters I come to respect.

They started out as simple-minded, genuinely kind people who do body training for their own enjoyment, and are very protective of their weakest, youngest member. And that’s nice, but they still seemed like minor characters to me and so they didn’t strike me as someone important in the story. Then came this scene:

Not only does President Musashi (a mere human) saving Mob from Shibata (an esper) makes me cheer, but also what he says shows how much Mob means to the whole club. Mob is not just the weaker friend in their club that needs people like them, who are bigger and more muscular, to care and protect from danger. Mob is their inspiration because of who he is: a hard worker who won’t take the easy way out, even though he can. The members of the Body Improvement Club don’t protect Mob because he is the weaker teammate. They protect him because they recognize his determination and they admire him.

And this is touching. Throughout the manga, we see people getting close to Mob because of his psychic powers, because they can use Mob’s power for their own benefit. But the students from the Body Improvement Club likes Mob for who he is, not for what he can or can’t do. They look up to him because of the values he carries and most importantly, they are the few who notices it before acknowledging Mob’s psychic abilities, while many other characters take some time before they realize Mob’s real strength lies within his personality. 

Mob Psycho 100 is a story that values people who are pure at heart, people who are seen as naive and don’t chase after power or fame or money like the rest of the society. It is through these people that we find true strength and friendship. It is people like Mob and his beefy classmates from the Body Improvement Club that are worthy of our admiration and respect.

okay when i was scrolling through the instagram tag for hamilton i noticed something.

we all know about all those ppl who repost art without permission or giving credit. but something I notice all the time that no one really speaks of is the text posts.

theyre usually screenshots of the text themselves, but often the URL is cropped out, like the photo above, which is actually a post of mine that doesn’t have creds to me.

i don’t understand why it is so hard to leave it. we, like artists, also deserve our due credit. im not saying us making text post takes the same effort of creating art, but we deserve credit all the same.

if you plan on reposting any of my posts, it’d be nice for you to ask permission first. if do you see posts of art or anything else that don’t have credits, do us a favour by asking the poster to put it or to remove the post all together.

another thing: if you don’t know the original creator, just don’t post it at all, or find out who it was then credit/get permission.

hamilton creators offer what they have to entertain us with art, fanfics, etc. don’t take advantage of what they do for free. They do what they do so people can appreciate what they do, and they like knowing that people know that it was them who drew/wrote it.

sorry if it seems as if im just bitching just because i didn’t get credit for a text post but I don’t care what you think.

thanks for reading this xoxo

Why Should I Care For the Oceans?

We’ve all heard it:

“Why does it matter if we overfish tuna? It tastes so good!”

“If the oceans dried up tomorrow, why would I care? I live 500miles away from any body of water!”

The thing is, without the oceans, we would all be dead. Our planet would probably look like Mars. There would be no freshwater, no food for us to eat, no suitable climate for us to survive.

(Photo: Getty Images/iStockphoto)

Whether you live by the coast, or only see the ocean once a year on holiday, the ocean has an impact on your life. Every breath you take, every food or drinks you have… is thanks to our oceans. Every single individual and living being on this planet is deeply connected, and extremely dependent upon our seas.

The oceans regulates climate, weather, and temperature. They act as carbon dioxide ‘sinks’ from the atmosphere. They hold 97% of the Earth’s water. They govern our Earth’s chemistry; all the microbes and microscopic organisms at the very bottom of the food chain support our own existence. The oceans are also crucial for our economies, health and security.

(Photo credit: Brian Skerry)

The past generations have been raised with the idea that the ocean is huge (and it is) and resilient, and that we could basically take from or put into the oceans as much as we wanted. Now, we found out that we cant go on this way. This mentality is part of our problem and it needs to change.

While we have made tremendous discoveries about the oceans over the last few decades, we have also caused more destruction to the sea than ever before. Many fisheries stocks are overfished, catastrophic fishing techniques are destroying the habitats and depleting populations, many marine species are on the verge of extinction, coral reefs are dying, pollution run-offs from agricultural farms are creating dead-zones where nothing can grow or live, millions of gallons of oil have devastated the Gulf of Mexico, bigger and faster container ships create noise pollution for marine mammals and endangers them…The list goes on, and on. We have had so much impact that we have actually changed the pH of the oceans! 

Pretty overwhelming, uh? 

So yes, you should care, because if the oceans crash, we as a species are crashing with them. The entire planet Earth will be gone. And if that’s not enough of a wake-up call for you, I don’t know what else could be!

While all the current marine conservation issues appear huge and insurmountable, there is still hope. Each individual can make a difference now. YOU can make better choices about which fish to consume (or not at all!) and ask about the way they were caught or raised, YOU can encourage sustainable fishing practices, YOU can decide not to use fertilizer or pesticides in your backyard, YOU can bring your own reusable bag to the grocery store and stop using plastics, YOU can stop using products with microbeads, YOU can participate in beach clean-ups, YOU can start your own research and discover even more awesome things about the oceans… YOU can spread the word to your skeptic friends! Have people follow in your footsteps; inspire your friends and family. Be the change :) !

“If you want to have an impact on history and help secure a better future for all that you care about, be alive now” - Sylvia Earle

To the millions of Muslim, LGBTQ+, women, all People of Color, disabled and immigrant humans living in fear in America right now: I stand with you. I love you. We will endure. “They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.” Take that to heart. We will continue to grow. Stand up for each other always. Stand up against the hate that is here, and that is to come. We will push back by coming together. We will make it. You are valid. You are strong. You belong here, you belong here, you belong here.

Jared in Milan 21.02.2017 .

Thanks Jenny for the awkward moment! Today in Milan Jenny and I were taking it easy, shopping around and had just finished a snack when we see a guy walk by decked out in @gucci. Jenny says “you should go shoot him! He’s one of Alessandro’s @lallo25 best friends and he’s a famous actor!” I wasn’t really in the mood to shoot and I never really care about shooting “stars” but Jenny seemed so excited I said I would but she had to ask the guy. When we approached Jenny just said “ hi!” and “could we take a photo of you?” but didn’t really explain who we were so he said ok and put his arm around her but I had to say “but can the photo be you you by yourself ?” To which he very politely said “no, just with her!” Jenny was over the moon! As we walked away Jenny said “I can believe I just met Jared Leto @jaredleto !” I looked at her, very surprised and said “you didn’t tell me that was Jared Leto! Come on!” Until he spoke I thought he must have been a famous Italian actor! The whole thing was so awkward but he was very gracious and Jenny was so thrilled that it was all worth it.. .

Wearable AI system can detect a conversation's tone

It’s a fact of nature that a single conversation can be interpreted in very different ways. For people with anxiety or conditions such as Asperger’s, this can make social situations extremely stressful. But what if there was a more objective way to measure and understand our interactions?

Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Institute of Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) say that they’ve gotten closer to a potential solution: an artificially intelligent, wearable system that can predict if a conversation is happy, sad, or neutral based on a person’s speech patterns and vitals.
