hello weird man who volunteers at my station

you may have noticed i have not friended ANYONE from work on facebook

that is because they are all old and i like to be able to bitch to my friends about times when i am not accorded much respect without having to face possible remonstrance

also when you wander around aimlessly searching for an editing workstation while i am recording a newscast and my boss is recording an interview and you come bother me about it in the studio and i tell you who to talk to about getting set up at one of the administrative offices’ unused desks, you get all huffy and say “yes you know i used to work here five years ago i know these things”

like great if you know these things then get out of here when i am trying to record, and also, no one who worked here five years ago still does and most of those people are actually not even alive anymore, and the places where you can use the audio editing software have recently expanded to meet the needs of the growing volunteer base, so get out of my workspace and go bother nick for the love of god please and stop staring at me  

and no i don’t want to be friends on facebook

at all


the wwf’s living planet report 2014, which discovered that we’ve lost half of all the world’s wildlife in the past fourty years, showed more specifically that the population of common dormice dropped by 43 percent between 1993 and 2010.

not only are dormice vulnerable to habitat loss, but they’re hesitant to cross open fields, and the grubbing out of hedgerows in recent decades has removed the wildlife corridors between woods that has allowed the dormice to move more freely to new habitat.  

dormice have very specialized diets of berries and nuts, and with less habitat they are unable to seek out enough food to fatten up before their six month hibernation (which was featured in these two posts).
