#dreaming of being shaved your hair means your powers are being decreased or minimized

#Dreaming water means cleansing 

#Dreaming a cow by the gate there’s an ancestor that needs to be introduced at home
#Cow at the yard or Kraal means the ancestor have arrived at home

#Chasing a black cow means the ancestor have responded to what you've asked

#Chased by a white Cow or with different shades/colors you're being crucified by an ancestor there’s something you did that wasn’t good.
#Dreaming of cows by the mountain means that the ancestor is outside your home & can’t protect you

#Dreaming of Cows fighting mean there’s cleaning needed ancestors are fighting each other

#Dreaminh of a Cow chasing you out of your homestead means you're not from that surname

Gentle pointer to self-confessed liberals who rightly rail against nationalism etc.

Be aware of the strong regio-chauvinism you often display on twitter. I find that quite prevalent wrt TN,Kerala,WB,Guj. Not just lightly-worn pride, but prejudice and regio/linguistic chauvinism.
From a psychological personality traits perspective, it points to a relatively higher N, and lower O, C and A.

The A here would be deceptive in the sense of high superficial agreeableness which reduces drastically during disagreement [that leads to high N].
A lot of these handles also take a stance against prejudice/discrimination.

Of race,nationality,religion,color,gender. Yet many of the same handles display prejudice : most often regio-chauvinism as well as gender-chauvinism.

I call it the hypocrisy & tyranny of the "liberals"

More than 70% of planet. Untold biodiversity. Food for over a billion. 100s of millions of jobs. It's so important we take care of our ocean.

For #WorldOceansDay2020, our team around the globe has shared hopes for the future: Image
From Fiji: We must come together around a new vision for our ocean, says @smangubhai of @wcsfiji. The old norm does not work. "We see inequity widening all over the world." #WorldOceansDay2020
From New York: May #WorldOceansDay2020 inspire us, inspire our leaders, to take the initiative and really start protecting & rehabilitating the ocean, says Jasmine Crowell of @nyaquarium.

Are you looking for some low stress #RemoteLearning activities this Friday? How about some #ocean #invertebrate coloring sheets? 🌊🦀

We developed these for #BeringSeaDays 2019 in St. Paul, AK. Learn about the local fauna of coastal Alaska! #SciArt #scicomm A coloring sheet featuring ...
Use the sheet to do a hunt! Do you think you can match all the names to the pictures? 🔎🐚

Post below if you think you know who is who! We'll post the answers on Monday! Image
Or, if you're looking for a simpler option, learn three new ocean animals and color them!

Animals use colors to show predators that they are poisonous - how do you think that would look?

Yesterday, on the 1st day of the UK's #COVID19 lockdown, I started posting a daily #deepsea fact on my instagram (@diva_amon) to help amaze/excite/distract. Will cross-post them here also. Feel free to add comments/questions/etc. & I'll try to get to them #DivasDailyDeepSeaFact
DAY 1: The test used to diagnose #COVID19 & other pandemics was developed with the help of an enzyme isolated from a #microbe found in #DeepSea #HydrothermalVents & freshwater hot springs.
Video: @NERCscience @adrg1.
Fact: @WHOI.
DAY 2: #DeepSea life can be slow. Case in point: the Greenland #shark (Somniosus microcephalus) can live for >400 years & only becomes sexually mature at >150 years old. Yes, it took me a grand total of 2 posts to start talking about sex. I blame @Marahh2o. Video: @oceanexplorer

On June 1, 2019, We Mean Business & #TNC, via social media, put forward the question: “What if one of the biggest things stopping us from saving the #ocean was money? What if it didn’t have to be?”

#NewDealForNature #BlueGrowth Image
It’s not money that will save the #oceans. It’s not for lack of financing that we cannot restore health to the oceans. Rather, the very thing destroying the #oceans is the pursuit of money & profits by multinational corporations. The very ones that comprise We Mean Business.
Earth’s natural resources are extracted, pulverized & reduced into #commodities. The faster the rate of destruction & exploitation – the faster the financial gains (profits) are realized. The greater the intensity of destruction & exploitation – the higher the #profits.

✋ L’ensemble des faits que j’évoquerai ont tous un niveau confiance élevé ou très élevé dans le rapport du GIEC, c’est-à-dire qu’ils s'appuie sur des preuves cohérentes et un consensus scientifique.

L'#océan a toujours nourri mais aussi fasciné les êtres humains. Son halo de #mystère vient sans doute du fait qu’il s’agit d’un lieu très inhospitalier pour notre espèce. #ExpoOcéan @Le_Museum
Au delà du problème de la respiration dans l'eau, de la température et de la lumière qui diminuent très rapidement en plongeant dans les profondeurs, la limite la plus contraignante est probablement la pression de la colonne d'🌊 (qui peu écraser 1 enceinte sous-marine par ex)
