It doesn't matter as long as they wash their hands after.

Yes, but what kind of a minivan? Does it have Stow-N-Go™ seats? Inbuilt DVD players? Is it all new?
The world's largest sponge has been spotted in the waters off Hawaii. What do we know of these strange, ancient creatures?

When I worked in a restaurant, we were so biased against police that we refused to take their money ;)

Headline should read Homophobic Catholic Priest Had Sex With Young Men Who Sought Ex-Gay "Therapy".
(RNS) Allegations that Monsignor Tony Anatrella, who has argued that gay men cannot be priests, sexually exploited male clients under his care could have major repercussions.

I've linked to a particularly good line, but there are many; the entire speech is worth watching.

Yup. And then... even the Pope is saying that there's more to life than a few litmus tests.

Happy World Turtle Day!


Why are sea turtles facing extinction?

Sea turtles, which have been in existence for more than 100 million years, are under threat. Nearly all seven species worldwide are now classified as endangered, largely because of human activities such as poaching, the destruction of nesting sites and climate change, all of which is pushing turtles ever closer to extinction.

On World Turtle Day, marked on 23 May annually, campaigners are calling for better protection and conservation of the marine animals. So why are sea turtles under threat, and what can we do about it?

_____

Facts about sea turtles ★ ★ ★

Sea turtles live in nearly every ocean basin in the world and nest on beaches.

Around 60 days after the eggs are laid, hatchlings emerge and know to make their way to the ocean.

They spend almost their whole lives at sea, except when adult females come ashore to nest several times a season every two to five years.

The leatherback is the largest sea turtle in the world.

According to the WWF, a female leatherback once travelled more than 11,800 miles in a round-trip across the Pacific Ocean, from Papua in Indonesia to the northwestern coast of the United States.

Some sea turtles can live for 50 years or more.

The creatures feed on anything from seaweed to jellyfish, depending on the species.
_______

Shell trade

Turtles have been hunted for their shells, which are used to make jewellery and other items, for centuries. The distinctive, patterned shell of the hawksbill sea turtle means the species is under threat despite the shell trade being illegal. As a result, hawksbills are critically endangered.

Hundreds of turtles are accidentally captured in commercial fishing nets every year, which often leads to drowning. The WWF is working with fisheries to help reduce the number of turtles captured.

Climate change

Our changing climate has a significant impact on a turtle's life, including the sex of the offspring. The warmer temperatures caused by climate change disrupt the normal sex ratios, resulting in more female hatchlings – which reduces reproductive opportunities and decreases genetic diversity.

Melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels erode the coastal habitats of sea turtles, shrinking the size of their nesting beaches.

Poaching

The international trade in all sea turtle species and their parts is prohibited under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

Despite this, sea turtles are harvested in a unsustainable way for human consumption, as well as the trade of their body parts and eggs as they are a source of food and income in many countries. They are also killed for traditional medicines.

Habitat loss

The destruction of nesting beaches as a result of tourism has had an extremely detrimental impact on turtles. The disturbance of nesting females can cause turtles to stop nesting entirely and return to the ocean. Coral reefs and seagrass beds, which provide feeding habitats for turtles, are being damaged as a result of tourist development, certain fishing techniques, climate change and more.

Keeping beaches clean and avoiding littering is key. Turning off beach lighting can help prevent nesting turtles from becoming disorientated, as nesting turtles and turtle hatchlings are guided by moonlight.

I use this post office at least once a month. I've never encountered even the slightest problem or unpleasantness with the staff or the service they provide. They've always served my needs and answered my questions efficiently, courteously, and professionally. Sometimes a lot of other people are using the post office at the same time, so I have to line up and wait my turn. I leanred how to do that when I was about four years old. While I'm waiting my turn, I can finish addressing my mail, I can fill out any necessary forms (usually kept stocked in good supply), I can peruse the packing materials and stuff available for purchase, I can mess around with my smartphone... ...or I can observe the behaviour of other customers. And I see a great deal of hair-raisingly bad behaviour from a great many customers. It tends to straddle the border between entitlement and racism. Racism? Yep. All the staffers speak perfectly understandable English, but many of them aren't white, and some of them speak with an accent. This post office serves some rather ritzy areas of Seattle, including Wedgwood and View Ridge. There are too many overprivileged people here, who regard themselves as _far_ too important to wait in line like a commoner or have to deal with, y'know, brown people. I'm sure their number isn't as great as just one such individual easily makes it seem (the fart-in-an-elevator effect). The snippy, huffy reviews of this post office are consistent with the snippy, huffy behaviour I see from customers at this post office. The simplest explanation is probably the correct one. The self-serve machine is kept in proper working condition. The supplies are kept stocked. The parcel drop-off bin and the mail dropbox are never jammed or otherwise inoperative. The floors are kept clean. The service hours are kept as posted. I just can't find anything worth kvetching about...except some of the customers.

2013 was a difficult year for my car. Some dillweed tried to steal it, leaving it with a broken door handle, carved-up steering column, and sheetmetal damage. KP's fixed it fully and neatly. Then a few months later, some other dillweed kicked the car with a heavy boot or something, judging by what I saw when I went to drive it one morning. Again KP's did a super job to a high standard of craftsmanship. The work wa done on time, with clear communication and a functional courtesy car. My car came back to me cleaned and tidied inside and out. Obviously I hope never again to need auto body "dental" work—nobody ever looks forward to such a need—but if I do, I'm going straight back to KP's.
