I like globes that have the bumps on them for mountains.  let me feel the earth, run my fingers over your himalayas, caress your inner alps

There are less than 400 Sumatran Tigers in existence. Unfortunately most of the world is unaware of this frightening fact. Without action, the species will completely disappear. To spread the message of the Tiger’s vulnerability, we’ve created a song that will also go extinct unless it’s reproduced. These custom lathe-cut records are made from polycarbonate plastic, which means it will degrade after a certain amount of plays, causing the song to eventually disappear and go extinct. The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, in collaboration with  us, have made only 400 records of this unreleased song. There are no other copies in existence. Tigers are dwindling every year. Social influence and conservation action could actually help save a species. Visit http://ift.tt/1lxl3Dh and http://ift.tt/1lxl3Dk to find out more. #EndangeredSong #SumatranTiger #EarthDay

This is brilliant.

10 Poverty Myths, Busted | Mother Jones →

america-wakiewakie:

1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.

2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.

3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.

4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.

5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.

6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.

7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.

8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.

9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.

10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.
