The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

Andrew Wakefield, the doctor who claimed there was a link between autism and vaccines, changed the data of his research and falsified his documents to prove his theory. He was banned from practicing medicine and labeled an “elaborate fraud” in 2010. Source

ALWAYS FUCKING REBLOG

always amazes me that a lot of folks don’t know this and still site his “work” as truth.

Some more tidbits from Wakefield’s Wikipedia page:
- Andrew previously tried to argue a link between the measles vaccine and Crohn’s disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease. I guess it wasn’t alarmist enough for his tastes and his claims never caught on.
- Andrew was being personally paid by lawyers litigating against MMR vaccine manufacturers as he conducted his studies attempting to link these vaccines to autism.
- Ten of his twelve co-authors published a retraction of their findings.
- He was found to have applied for a patent on his own brand of measles vaccine before his research linking existing measles vaccines to autism. His own research found no such link as he developed this vaccine.
- His treatment of child patients was nothing short of abusive. As many as three people were sometimes needed to hold a child down as Andrew carried out his procedures, which included colon biopsies and lumbar punctures (“spinal taps”). His nurses left in disgust of such treatment. One patient was left with life-threatening complications.
- He paid children for samples of their blood at his son’s birthday party.
The whole wiki article is worth reading.

Screw dancing baby Groot. If you don’t think Vin Diesel saying “I am Groot” in multiple languages is cool, then I don’t know what to do with you.

But let’s talk about Jamie Brewer.
She’s awesome.
Jamie Brewer made her television debut on American Horror Story. Prior to her transition to acting on camera she was a theatrical actress. She has not left the stage, however, and still continues her training through theater and through improvisation at 'The Groundlings Theatre and School' .
Being an individual with Down Syndrome Jamie has made it a point to be active in the Down Syndrome community. Jamie was the youngest to ever be elected President of the ARC of Fort Bend Chapter. From there, she was appointed to the State of Texas ARC Board, then elected to the Executive Board as Treasurer. Jamie was then asked to serve on the ARC Governmental Affairs Committee for the State of Texas. She spoke with Senators at the Texas State Capitol to persuade them to pass the law for Texas to abolish using the “R” word from state legislation, and regarding the needs of people with disabilities in Texas. Texas now uses “Intellectual Developmental Disability” in their legislation. 1
Brewer is involved with a several non-profit organizations, including DSALA, DSiAM, BTAP, National Down Syndrome Congress, American Association of People with Disabilities of the United States, and Civitan International.
