The Featured Creature: Deep Sea Siphonophore: a Creature Made of Creatures

This remarkable ‘creature’ is not actually a creature at all, but multiple tiny creatures, called zooids, all living and working together. They combine to create what’s called a siphonophore; a long, thin, sometimes transparent pelagic floating colony that can superficially resemble a jellyfish.

The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

“Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.”

Mary Pipher, Reviving Ophelia (via erkings)

Fun fact: Canada launched the “Don’t Be That Guy” rape prevention campaign targeted at potential rapists rather than potential victims was launched… and the number of reported sexual assaults fell by 10 per cent. within that year.  Rape prevention NEEDS to start with education and focus on the perpetrators, not just policing the behavior of potential victims.

Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics
