Is the third-largest rorqual before the Fin whale and the Blue whale. Heavily hunted in the XIX and XX century its numbers dropped from 250.000 to 80.000 which in other words mean less than a third of the pre whaling population. Today luckily is protected.
Mass deaths events have been recorded numerous times and the reason why isn't clear but it appears to be endemic poisoning called red tide. It is a phenomenon of decoloration of the sea surface that occurs by an overpopulation of certain microorganisms, apparently caused by the unprecedented warming of the Pacific Ocean. The biggest mass death event documented happened in Chile in June 2015 where 337 death Sei Whales were counted.

[ID: 5 digital handwritten info cards with yellow backgrounds. /1: "HOW TO TREAT DISABLED PEOPLE LIKE PEOPLE (because apparently this is a guide we need)"/2: "1. Respect social boundaries /don't stare at us /don't ask invasive questions /e.g. "What happened?" /e.g. "What's your [mobility aid] for?" /don't give unsolicited advice /e.g. "Have you tried yoga?" /e.g. "If you did ____ you wouldn't be sick!" /don't infantalize us /don't pity us /don't try to sniff out 'fakers'" /3: "2. Respect physical boundaries /don't grab or touch mobility aids /don't help us without permission /we will ask if we need help /if we appear to really need help, still ask first /don't park in handicapped spots (unless you are disabled) /don't block ramps, paths, handrails, or elevators /get out of the way for people with mobility aids /be patient and slow down for us" /4: "3. Believe us... /when we say we're disabled /when we tell you our limits /when we tell you we have done the best we can /when we say we don't need your help /when we say we do need your help /when we say we know what we're doing /BELIEVE US!" /5: "4. Stand with us /educate yourself on disability & accessibility /call out ableist statements & actions /organize locations & events to be accessible /include disabled representation in media /vote in support of disability rights /RIGHT NOW: follow social distancing guidelines as best as your situation allows. Many disabled people are high risk, and you cannot say you support us while willingly endangering our lives." /end ID]

Shiroi Suna no Aquatope → Kamee Leftover Udon Chanpuru
Chanpurū (チャンプルー) is an Okinawan stir fry dish. It is considered the representative dish of Okinawan cuisine. Chanpurū is Okinawan for "something mixed" and the word is sometimes used to refer to the culture of Okinawa, as it can be seen as a mixture of traditional Okinawan, Chinese, mainland Japanese, Southeast Asian and North American culture. The term originates from the Malay or Indonesian word campur (pronounced "cham-poor"), meaning "mix".
Gōyā chanpurū is the quintessential chanpurū. It consists of gōyā (bitter melon), egg, tofu, and either Spam or thinly sliced pork. It often also includes vegetables such as carrots.

It's important to have a system of getting things done, whether it's tackling tasks as the day progresses or having a carefully planned schedule for every single hour of the week. How can you create an effective personal planning system that suits your needs and preferences?

New thoughts and ideas regarding the "structure-process-complex" and what it can imply:
As John Wheeler put it in words:
"Space-time tells matter how to move; matter tells space-time how to curve.”
and Einstein's quote:
"Nothing is real until something moves."
I came up with this concept.
The "Real" axis describes structures, the "imaginary" axis describes processes. Furthermore, the negative areas describe the (subset to the axes) imaginary parts, and the positive ares the real parts.
Time is the imaginary structure and imaginary process which turns itself into the real structure of space with the help of the real process of motion.
Space is the real structure and imaginary process which gets turned into a real structure and real process with the help of the real process of motion.
Motion is the real process and imaginary structure which turns imaginary structures into real ones. It turns the imaginary structure of space into the real structure of matter.
Matter is the real structure and real process. It can be seen as space that interweaves itself with the help of the imaginary process of time and the real process of motion.
Furthermore, time is a thread that weaves the net of space. Space interwoven with itself creates matter. Matter is shaped, kind of "folded" space, seen in the analogy Wheeler used in the term "Quantum foam".

with both covid-19 + the primaries going on I've heard ppl say some truly awful stuff about "boomers" as if all old people are rich conservative white men who deserve to be wiped out, so I drew up this graphic feat. stories of some of the elders I've met through work and activism.
"boomer" is not a coherent class. now more than ever it is imperative that the working class stands together, while celebrities sing silly songs in their mansions we must organize to meet community needs, regardless of age we are all comrades in the same fight!
