A jury has found Michael Dunn guilty of first-degree murder for the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis in 2012.
This shit, just happened! I’m sure you all remember the case of Jordan Davis, the 17-year-old black boy who was shot at a gas station by Michael Dunn for playing his music too loudly. Well this just happened!
I don’t know if this was the right step, but I called lawyers in Idaho today. I really need the child support to make it month to month. I don’t know what the fees will be because I didn’t get any further than leaving messages, but I hope it’s something I can do. I’m tired of the run around from Dauphin County Domestic Relations. I don’t even know if they’re actually pushing Idaho because they never seem to take notes of when they’ve called them. I think that they haven’t even called once since I started pestering them again. Why is it like this just to get a man to support his children? Our church states clearly and strongly that a man needs to help support his children. I’ve had a support order in place this entire time since I have had sole custody. Why am I crying over something so stupid?
Sad to say I will have to continue this GFM in case I need donations to pay legal fees while in pursuit of child support. I remember when I didn’t have majority custody and I paid support. There was a time I lost my job and didn’t pay any support. When went to court about it I went with the same chip on my shoulder that most people go with, “I don’t want to pay him, he’s my ex!” But as I sat there watching the parents who simply wanted to pay their bills and needed that support, and watching the other parents with excuses as to why they weren’t paying, I realized child support isn’t paying the ex. Child support is a responsibility that should be paid, willingly, in order to help support the children. I am not saying there aren’t recipients who misuse the money, but the majority of us simply want to provide for our children.
Ok, that’s it for today; I need to see if I can make it in today for my drug test for Hershey.
You fuckers had better reblog the Shit out of this!!!!!!! I’m serious as Fuck!
My friend had her daughters at a zoo when she heard, “Ma’am, there’s a lemur on your baby
this is not a photograph of morgan freeman
WHAT IT IS IS PURE BLACK MAGIC WITCHERY
I watched this happen and I still dont believe it
IT’S FOR ALL OF MY FOLLOWERS WHO HAS DEPRESSION OR THINGS THAT MAKES THEM THINK THEY’RE WORTHLESS, USELESS, OR MAKES THEM THINK SUICIDE OR SELF HARM ARE A DENOUEMENT
PLEASE WATCH IT, REBLOG IT, THIS MIGHT CAN HELP SOMEONE
i do not own the video full credit goes to the owner(s)
this is so true, if you have depression you need to watch this, please
Mercury, Venus, and Saturn align with the Pyramids of Giza for the first time in 2,737 years on December 3, 2012
i’ve never reblogged anything so fast
The last time this happened, an Egyptian Pharaoh was there to see it.
team i can’t do math for shit but i can write a 3 page english paper in less than an hour
team I can do math for hours but I can’t write an english paper for shit
Team I can’t, I have rehearsal
team in theory I could do these things but instead I’m going to spend four hours on the internet for no reason
Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.
Pria Anand was a student in Yale University’s class of 2010 whose passion for the environment made her want to make a difference. Anand wanted to find out if there was something in nature that could decompose plastic. She began experimenting with dozens of species of fungi from the Amazon, but she graduated before she could finish her work.
Jonathan Russell took over for Anand but soon he was beginning to think maybe it just wasn’t possible. One day, as he casually walked into the lab he says his eyes locked on the Petri dish containing his experiment: the plastic was gone. He’d found what they’d been looking for.
The Yale students had discovered that Pestalotiopsis microspora fungus can break down plastic. It’s a species of fungi that can be found in many regions of the world and can decompose polyurethane, a common plastic that is used to make things like insulation, synthetic fibers, plastic for electronics and sealants.
The fungus was 10 days old when the experiment started and in only a matter of days, he says, it had significantly decomposed about a quart size amount of the plastic.
Dr. Ming Tien, a biochemist at Penn State University, says he experimented in the past with using fungi for decomposition. He points out “the question of whether these microbes can be used in the future is an engineering challenge. It’s a big leap to go from the test tube to the field.”
Back in Strobel’s classroom, one of his students is working to find an organism that biodegrades styrofoam. Strobel says the current crop of students is interested in seeking out more solutions like these and that they’ll continue to make discoveries like Russell.
Students from Yale University, have brought back a fungus from Ecuador that eats polyurethane. This polymer is commonly found in plastics, and it’s used widely in making all kinds of synthetic products.
The fungi, Pestalotiopsis microspora, is the first anyone has found to survive on a steady diet of polyurethane alone and—even more surprising—do this in an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment that is close to the condition at the bottom of a landfill.
This is good news for everyone..
Plastic is one of the most resilient man made materials. According to Penn State University, a plastic bag takes 10 to 20 years to decompose, where as a plastic container takes 50 to 80 years to decompose. The worse is the plastic soda bottle, it takes 450 years to decompose. The fungi’s abilities seem to be a perfect tool in bioremediation.
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

THIS IS AMAZINGGGG
I love nature
THE EARTH IS SO AMAZING IT KNOWS THAT WE’RE FUCKING IT UP AND EVEN THEN INSTEAD OF GIVING US AN APOCALYPSE IT GOES AND GIVES US A SOLUTION TO HELP US FIX WHAT WE FUCKED UP BLESS
Big shout out to nature for saving our asses for the billionth time
