If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.

this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.

last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks

Get excited, motherfuckers.  Without bees, we will die off.  Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs.  Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.

Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY. 
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Giving bees a “bee block” alone is a huge load off their backs! You can buy homes here or  You can even build your own. 
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

The Shadow Prince Teaser Tuesday #9: Meet Joe Vince (with gifs) and Lunar Chronicles giveaway

breedespain:

You know what’s infinitely better than a Monday? A Tuesday. Especially if it’s a THE SHADOW PRINCE Teaser Tuesday!

Today we get to meet another one of my favorite characters from THE SHADOW PRINCE: Daphne’s father—the Joe Vince. Daphne has barely met her famous father (he’s a pretty big…

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

Anonymous asked
I read THE UNBOUND and loved it, but have a question. You keep saying you hope there will be more books, but that you don't know. But if you're the author, and you want there to be more books, why can't you just write more books??

veschwab:

This is such a hard question to answer. It should be that simple, shouldn’t it? But it’s not. It breaks my heart that it’s not. 

Right now, the future of THE ARCHIVED series is uncertain, not in my heart, but at the publisher. I’m trying to hold onto hope.

This series is so important to me. I’ve worked so hard to build it. 

And while I’ve tried to make every book capable of standing on its own, the story isn’t supposed to end here. 

I don’t EVER want my readers to think I’ve gotten bored with and walked away from a series. From them. I would never do that. Never abandon them. If the story stops, it won’t be my choice. If the story stops, I will do my utmost to find the time/way/strength to write it anyway and release it another way, but right now, I am still holding on to hope. 

ETA 2.4.14: I want to edit this post. It’s very important for me to edit this. While I stand by everything I said above, I also need to make an amendment, because there is something I did not convey.

It is an unfortunate and necessary fact of publishing that it is a place where art and business must intersect. And as of this moment, THE ARCHIVED does not have the sales to merit a third book. That can change (and I hope it will). 

There are many people in house who very much want it to change. I did not mean to suggest that Disney*Hyperion was ambivalent to the future of this series, and I hurt a lot of feelings by saying so. There are people in-house who believe in this book as much as I do, but the fact remains, this is a business, and until THE ARCHIVED has the sales to merit a third book, there won’t be one. It is not for lack of passion. It is not for lack of want. It is a fact of publishing.

In the meantime, I supremely hope readers enjoy the two current installments of the book. And do not fret, I don’t do cliffhangers, every book in the series —whether there are 2 or more— has its own arc, and its own sense of resolution.
