Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

Quebec farmed mink set free by intruder

Hero

Most certainly NOT a hero. When you release captive animals into the wild you are not saving them, you are causing them to suffer and die slow, miserable deaths. Releasing these animals is simply an ego boost to people who want to pretend they’re helping animals when in reality they’re only harming them. 

This is what happens when mink are released from fur farms;

These mink cannot survive in the wild. They have no idea how to hunt, how to avoid danger, how to find shelter or anything, so they either get hit by cars, starve to death, die from the elements or attacked by other animals. Mink are also extremely aggressive towards others of their species and releasing so many into one area inevitably results in a mink hunger games, where they will attack and kill each other. Physically, they are also far too removed from their wild cousins to do well in the wild. Farmed mink are much larger and heavier, with colors that put them at a huge disadvantage and a coat that isn’t as weather or waterproof as wild mink.

Released mink are also extremely damaging to the environment. The few that do survive become ruthless predators and push native species into extinction. In the UK the water vole is facing extinction purely because of mink released from fur farms. In some places they also compete with the native, wild mink, as well as other native predators, taking away vital space and food from them. 

Don’t pretend this kind of thing helps animals because it most certainly does not.

A muggleborn and pureblood couple having their first child and the pureblood not knowing about ultrasounds so they don’t understand why their partner is dragging them to a muggle doctor until they get there and suddenly they see a physical picture of their newborn child and hear it’s little heartbeat and it’s better than any magic they’ve ever seen.

That’s it. He has reached the point of no return. Fuck Richard Dawkins and his eugenics. The once renowned geneticist and scientist ought to abort himself from the earth. Now. What a complete and utter incalculably diabolic bag of fuck this man is. What a steaming crock of putrefying human excrement. How dare - how fucking dare he be so brash and dismissive and prejudiced as to suggest we shouldn’t care for those with Down’s Syndrome. What fucking planet does this man live on?

GUYS

THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT DOWN

AND REPLACE IT WITH THE BULLSHIT ENDANGERED SPECIES MANAGEMENT SELF-DETERMINATION ACT

THAT ALLOWS STATES TO DECIDE  IF THEY EVEN WANT TO ABIDE BY LAWS PROTECTING SPECIES AT ALL

AND DELISTS SPECIES AFTER ONLY FIVE YEARS

DOES ANYONE ELSE EVEN CARE
