In India, a snake protects two pups for 48 hours after they accidentally fall into a hole. At first it was thought that she wanted to attack them, but then noticed she was caring for the puppies. When rescued, the snake was released into a forest.
It is impossible not to share it with you.
that snake is going to snake heaven

3D Illustrations That Pop Out at You
Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki has an incredible knack for seeing the potential for cool perspective drawings along flat surfaces. As we’ve seen before, all he needs are some colored pencils, charcoal, and a few notebooks to create his amazingly detailed illustrations that jump off the pages in lively and entertaining forms.
In his playful 3D art, Hideyuki has drawn everything from silly monsters emerging from paper to a colorful Spiderman who is poised and ready for action. The artist focuses on strong lights and shadows and uses multiple notebooks propped and angled to produce his clever illusions of depth.
From a direct view, the drawings magically transform into three dimensional scenes but the truth is revealed upon a closer inspection from various angles. To see the artist in action and learn some of his tricks, check out the two videos.

Imagine you’re 16 and you’ve just realized you might be gay. You’re being bullied, so reach out to your school for help – they send you to a chaplain. He says that being gay is a disease and you need to be cured.
Sound outrageous? The Australian government has just decided that’s what should happen in schools all over the country. The Federal Budget was just released with $245 million to send chaplains from anti-gay religious groups into schools instead of qualified social workers.
There’s still a chance to stop it. The Opposition is about to decide if they should pass the budget in full, seek to amend it or block it entirely. If this secret religious agenda doesn’t make headlines, it could be forgotten and passed without debate.
Help raise the alarm and stop tax money from being spent to bully vulnerable students. We only have days.

A simple archery tutorial for all of you artists out there. Lately I’ve seen a lot of bad archery form in art, and even in stock used for reference, so please pass this tutorial on so that people can see it! Check the captions for information to go with the pictures.
Here is some extra advice on stance and draw:
Gripping the string: Modern form is to hold the string with your first three fingers, with the index finger placed over the arrow. You always use this if you have a “sight”, or a small circle to help you aim, on your bow. These weren’t developed until the 1900’s, so your character will probably not have one.
In movies, you might see archers “pinching” the bowstring to draw. This form is actually alright as well, but you have to have very strong hands to do it.
Form: If your form is good, you will probably be using the muscles in your back more than those in your arms. To maximize draw power, archers will keep their back and neck straight and chest up, but not puffed out.
Anchor: This is very important, especially for barebow archers! The anchor is basically the point to which you draw back your arrow. The anchor will always be on the same side of the face as the hand drawing the bowstring. Most archers position their anchor somewhere along their jaw and almost never past their ear because this makes it hard to aim. Please don’t depict archers drawing their bowstrings too far away from their faces— not only is it impossible to aim this way, but if the bow isn’t drawn back far enough, the arrow won’t fly with enough force.
On a similar note, archers almost never tilt their bows sideways to shoot. I don’t know how this trope started but it’s incredibly difficult to shoot like that.
Posting again for the night crowd, this time with a couple of edits. Thanks for the advice from those who also do archery! Please keep passing this around for all the lovely artists to see <3
This is pretty serious stuff. Bayer might be about to overturn the EC’s decision to ban the pesticides implicated in killing off the bees! If they win this case, it could be truly disastrous for both the bees and our own future. Please share, and please see the SumOfUs link (no affiliation) to make a donation to help the campaign to save the bees.
Early in 2013, the European Food Safety Authority stated that three specific neonicotinoid insecticides (imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam) pose an acute risk to honeybees, and the European Commission proposed a two-year ban on them.
This is due to go into effect on Dec 1st – and the ban was introduced because of mounting scientific evidence that these insecticides, produced by Syngenta and Bayer, have been the agents responsible for Colony Collapse Disorder – a major problem threatening both the bees and the safety of our own food supply!
However in a horrifying twist, and despite huge public opposition, Syngenta and Bayer are now suing the European Commission over their “right” to continue to produce the pesticides which have been implicated in the massive die-off of millions of bees. Yes, their “right”. Because as we know, corporations’ sole agenda is to make money. They cannot let a trivial thing like nature get in their way.
These insecticides continue to be produced and used on a vast scale in the USA and in other countries and are huge moneymakers for the chemical corporations…
This threw up a few red flags when some of the links led to wiki pages but I looked up the lawsuit and it seems to be legit. Bayer is trying to lift the ban on pesticides that have been linked to the death of millions of bees in Europe. This is, unquestionably, terrible enough on its own, because bees are amazing little insects and deserve all our love, but if all the bees in the world go extinct, human life as we know it will change drastically. Produce will virtually cease to exist. That is a big freaking deal.
In addition to the donation page listed above, SumOfUs also has a petition going around that is still in need of signatures to help stop this. And it needs to be stopped. We cannot risk losing any more bees.
Bees get a pretty bad rap, but honestly? The scary, stingy things you’re afraid of? Most likely wasps. Bees, particularly honeybees and bumblebees, are just these fluffy little cuddle balls that fly around and pollinate stuff. They won’t sting you unless you’re a direct threat to them, because if they sting you, they’ll die. Don’t be scared of bees. Be scared for bees.
I’ve done as much looking around as I can because I know Tumblr is a cesspool of misinformation, and this looks as legit as it gets. Please tell people, sign the petition, and donate if you can.
And in the meantime, if you’re a gardner, please try to encourage bees to come to your garden. You can use the tips listed here. There’s also some information about different kinds of bees you might run into, in case you’d like to learn more about bees and why they’re wonderful.
Thanks for reading, guys. Please share this.
They need 60K more signature and time is almost up! Please sign and reblog!
bees are important as fuck
