Got followed by this very educational tumblr today. ^.^

Upon closer inspection, I fear they may in fact be recruiting for ISKCON, soooooo ahhhhh, keep that in mind. They’re bad news, in my opinion.

thats so weird

I got followed by the Idries Shah foundation or someshit like that

cult recruitment via following peeps? is that whats happening

To the best of my knowledge, the followers of Idries Shah don’t have much to do with Vedic religion. The guy established a Sufi (or Neo-Sufi) Order, and published a number of Grimoires and Renaissance material during his lifetime.

If his Order has become ‘culty’ since his death, it would be news to me.

I know they are different things obvs, I meant orgs following ppl to advert their fancy wisdom at low low prices

(which Im also using as a qualifier of cultiness in general)

I would probably follow back an Osho blog tho tbh

No shortage of Osho on tumblr, haha.

But yeah, I’ve certainly had a number of New Age groups ping me on twitter and such. So it looks like that’s a thing now.

Study Shows Startling Race Gap in Exposure to Air Pollution 

nitanahkohe:

A new study by researchers at the University of Minnesota have uncovered a disquieting racial gap when it comes to exposure to air pollution, the MinnPost reports. Examining air-pollution exposure across racial, economic, educational and other relevant categories, researchers realized that race and income had the greatest impact on exposure, with people of color being exposed to 38 percent more outdoor nitrogen oxide from vehicle exhaust and power plants than their white counterparts. Exposure has been linked to higher rates of asthma and heart disease. “The main ones are race and income, and they both matter,” lead researcher Julian Marshall, an associate professor at the university, told the MinnPost in an interview. “In our findings, however, race matters more than income.”

“The health impacts from the difference in levels between whites and nonwhites found in the study are substantial,” the study states, according to the site. “For example, researchers estimate that if nonwhites breathed the lower NO2 [nitrogen] levels experienced by whites, it would prevent 7,000 deaths from heart disease alone among nonwhites each year.”

"I am an Inuit seal meat eater, and my fur is ethical," wrote Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, bundled in a sealskin coat, pants and boots. She also wrote a letter to DeGeneres and posted it online.

Samsung vowed to donate $1 for every retweet of DeGeneres’ celebrity-packed Oscars selfie to a charity of her choice. She raised $1.5 million for the Humane Society of the United States, which campaigns annually against Canada’s seal hunt.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s website calls the seal hunt “one of the most atrocious and inhumane acts against animals allowed by any government.”

The Inuit have long defended the hunt as a sustainable practice, deeply rooted in Inuit culture, which helps feed people in a region plagued by hunger.

"The meat feeds families, which is important to an area where many households have identified that they face issues of food insecurity," said Sandi Vincent, who posted her own sealfie Thursday.

The pelts also come in handy in the cold northern climate and provide a needed source of income, she said. She also countered the idea of the hunt as “inhumane.”

"In Inuit culture, it is believed seals and other animals have souls and offer themselves to you. Humanely and with gratitude we accepted this gift," she said, reminiscing about catching her first seal at age 15.

This is your friendly reminder that Beltane actually has more to do with keeping cows and other livestock safe and fire than all the heterosex, all the time.

Thank you! If I see more “fertility holiday” bullshit I’m gonna throw someone into a bon fire

Co-signed

I also try to remind people that (even and especially taking English/May Day customs into account) this holiday has a lot more to do with crossdressing and silliness than with enforcing any kind of gender conformity. Let’s see how that message goes this year…

"Banna is her name from faultless Lough Neagh:
Roof of the Ocean as far as Scotland:
Lunnand she is in blameless Scotland —
or its name is Torrand according to its meaning.
Severn is she called through the land of the sound Saxons,
Tiber in the Romans’ keep:
River Jordan thereafter in the east
and vast River Euphrates.
River Tigris in enduring paradise,
long is she in the east, a time of wandering
from paradise back again hither
to the streams of this Sid."

—  an excerpt from poem 3, “Boand,” from the Metrical Dindshenchas, identifying the River Boyne with other famous rivers of the known world.
