This year’s Longitude Prize is focused on the growing problem of antibiotic resistant bacteria. They’ve put together a nice image, shown here, which showcases what they term ‘the ten most dangerous antibiotic resistant bacteria’. You can read more detail on each of them here:http://www.nesta.org.uk/news/antibiotic-resistant-bacteriaThe prize offers a £10 million prize fund for the development of a cheap, accurate, and easy to use bacterial infection test kit, which will allow doctors to prescribe the correct antibiotics at the correct time for patients, to try to help minimise the development of antibiotic resistance.

So, for many people in California, water is literally going to run out for them before the end of the year, which is a completely ridiculous thing to ever have happen. Bottled water companies and various companies who use excessive water for extracurricular activities are not really taking into consideration the environment surrounding their area, and are pretty much bleeding California dry.
I don’t really have much in the way of helping, but not supporting those companies is always a great idea, which is why I personally recommend Bobbles.
They’re reusable plastic bottles that are fairly cheap and utilize a carbon filter that usually runs you less than $5 per filter and typically come two filters to a pack, and lasts you a good couple of months. You can buy them on Amazon, and I’ve seen them in places like Best Buy and Walgreens, so they’re bound to be in all sorts of places outside of that.
Tap water in most areas has been found to basically not be any more dangerous to your health than bottled water, but if you’re really unsure or paranoid like me, these filters do a great job without having to buy an attachment filter for your sink faucet.
There are TONS of short term solutions to help you guys out, but I figure having a reference or two drop on your dash might make the decision to jump to filters as opposed to traditional bottled water a little simpler to make.
Here’s a handy-dandy link to the Amazon search page if you’re interested.

bottled water is a SCAM and one that literally is endangering the environment and contributing to the horrific wildfires CA experiences every year. Get a filtered bottle like this, or something similar. Way cheaper and better for the environment! Remember, water, like any other resource, is valuable. Don’t waste it!

I have a Bobble bottle and it’s fucking great. I got it for school because our dorms have shitty-tasting water from the tap but I use it everywhere. It filters the water and makes it taste way better. Also it looks cool and is durable enough that I’ve knocked it off my desk many times at school and it’s not dented or broken or even barely scratched at all.

Bobble makes pitchers too.
Rubbermaid and Brita also make filter bottles.  I keep a filter bottle at work because I have a sink in my workroom.  I drink nice clean water allll day.

i was going to try to justify this in the captions but there’s really no way to do that. my only excuse is that it is far too late and i am far too unsupervised to be using the internet in any productive manner

(i keep getting the feeling that someones done this exact thing already especially irt to the last one but for now im just gonna assume im meaninglessly second guessing myself)

The Whisperers of the wood tribe has bred chocobos and traded them for goods for as long as they have been traversing the black shroud. Each summer as the days grow longer and the temperature rises they set up camp and allow their chocobos to nest.
The tribe’s sages use the colors of the hatched chicks to predict the tribe’s future. Different colors mean different things.Yellow: The tribe shall continue as is.White: The tribe shall prosper (White chocobos are said to be ‘touched by Menphina and are kept for the Alpha.)Red: The tribe shall face conflict.Blue: The tribe shall be at peace.Green: The tribe shall be healed and fertile.Black: The tribe shall suffer.
Valdrok (Lilikoi’s chocobo) was a bad omen for the Whisperers of the woods. Some tribe members wanted him killed but Lilikoi convinced her mother to spare his life and to let her raise him. After the calamity, some blamed Valdrok and Lilikoi for bringing bad fortune upon the tribe. Both Lilikoi and Valdrok were always different from the rest of the whisperers of the wood tribe, perhaps that’s why they have such a strong bond. High-res
