Did you know that Giant Kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) doesn’t like it #hot? When sea water warms (generally to about ~72 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) it’s dissolved inorganic nitrogen content begins to drastically decrease. This leads to reduced or sometimes even negative growth rates in Giant Kelp. Taken at Anacapa Island, CA during a toasty 53 degree Fahrenheit dive.
School shootings.... today marks the 23rd school shooting. I think this is a very important matter and I can’t believe ANOTHER school choosing happened. When I found out about this a few hours ago, I was shocked. But then again why should I, in America we have a average of more than one shooting per week. I haven’t been in a shooting but I know people that have. One of them is my band teacher and the only reason he’s reaching at my school is because at his previous school, he witnessed a school shooting. All I’m asking is to talk to your peers, or anyone you see that seems like they need somebody. Be there for people, even if you don’t know them, make the time to get to know everyone. Please I don’t want any more school shootings to happen. Thank you to everyone who actually read till the end. I <3 every single one of you! Stay safe!! (Oh, I took this in Hawaii on my vacation last year)
