An Australian Blue Heeler goes to sleep on top of the flock it has herded
"Sexy, single, and ready to mingle"
"Poly, hot, and having to explain my situation a lot"
Oh god YES! :D
Our 5 month old English bulldog loves & craves attention! But when she gets excited, she shows it by peeing all over the place!
Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ
This will create so many jobs and regenerate so many communities and aaaaaahhhhhhh

it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!
Oh yes, acacia trees.
They fix nitrogen and improve soil quality.
And, to make things fun, the species they’re using practices “reverse leaf phenology.” The trees go dormant in the rainy season and then grow their leaves again in the dry season. This means you can plant crops under the trees, in that nitrogen-rich soil, and the trees don’t compete for light because they don’t have any leaves on.
And then in the dry season, you harvest the leaves and feed them to your cows.
Crops grown under acacia trees have better yield than those grown without them. Considerably better.
So, this isn’t just about stopping the advancement of the Sahara - it’s also about improving food security for the entire sub-Saharan belt and possibly reclaiming some of the desert as productive land.
Of course, before the “green revolution,” the farmers knew to plant acacia trees - it’s a traditional practice that they were convinced to abandon in favor of “more reliable” artificial fertilizers (that caused soil degradation, soil erosion, etc).
This is why you listen to the people who, you know, have lived with and on land for centuries.
THIS is an incredible display of human knowledge and ingenuity.
I really hate to do this, but I just do not know what else to do
I’ve sold everything I have of value at the moment, but my laptop.
I do not want to do that just yet, because I need it for work.
I moved from California to Missouri in order to escape a toxic environment and to help better my future.
I am so very close to doing so. I have been living off my savings for a long time. I had work for a while, but lost my job because I did not meet my sales goal. Which required for me again to go to my savings.
as you can see, I am down to my last 50$
I have no rent, I usually pay rent on the 15th, but for the last few months, my room mate has been having money problems requiring me to pay it early. I have 50$ to my name, I need that to get to work. I take the bus everywhere or walk if I have to. I have a job at Best Buy, but I do not start working there til the 4th and as with most businesses my first check probably will be held even though I would get paid on the 17th.
I do have other financial endeavors that could pan out, just for now I am desperate.
My rent is 350 every month, I really would appreciate any help towards paying it. I am literally at my wits end. I’ve sold everything
I’ve come a long way, I am almost on my feet, just please help me out?
