"
The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner."

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

I don’t mean to be rude or imposing about my lifestyle but it makes me so sad that so many people don’t want to hear about it.

I had to sit through 13 years of being taught to eat the wrong things in order to benefit the government, the farming and pharmaceutical industries but whenever I start talking about the alternative, I just get targeted by all these jokes for being a vegan.

It’s so heartbreaking that nobody cares about something that is better for your health, your mind and the planet.

This is what happens when a smoker quits. Pass it on.

This is so important

How does this not have more notes?! Seriously, take the time to read this because it could save a life. Or SEVERAL.

I like this better than the anti-smoking advertisements on TV that try to scare the shit out of you.
