Have you noticed the Mosquitos are already out! Here is a homemade trap to help keep you and the kiddos from being a blood donor!!!
HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
1 2-liter bottle
1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)
REBLOGGING BECAUSE IMPORTANT
and if someone breaks into your house you can throw the bottle at them
The ANC, South Africa’s ruling party, has officially endorsed the 10th Israeli Apartheid Week due to take place from March 10th - 16th.
Held annually, the event’s objective is to raise awareness concerning Israel’s crimes in Palestine and against Palestinian people. Over 70 South African organizations have backed the event.
In press release, the ANC stated:
"The ANC is unequivocal in its support for the Palestinian people in their struggle for self-determination, and unapologetic in its view that the Palestinians are the victims and the oppressed in the conflict with Israel."
"Today we humbly continue the internationalism of our movement in lending our solidarity to the people of Cuba, Western Sahara, Swaziland, Palestine and other struggling people."
All Africa, All the time.
*pictures of the events in Cape Town & UCT will be posted on Dynamic Africa’s instagram account.
I have a portable Wi-Fi device called a MiFi, that I use in coffee shops and hotels and all the places that give you supposedly free Wi-Fi. The truth is, what we’re learning in today’s world is that nothing is free. If something is supposed to be free, then it really means they’re taking your data. So what I’ve decided: I have to buy my way out of it. … Privacy is becoming a luxury good.
Open Call for Creators: Time Travel Convention and Recurrence Plot Release
In collaboration with Metropolarity.net, this interactive exhibition explores time travel as a practical activity – something that does not require a machine, an advanced degree, or other privileges. Using afrofuturism and science fiction as lenses, the exhibition will revolve around time travelling with everyday tools such as memory, dreams, imagination, manipulation of language and perception, light, and music.
Inviting submissions from the public of all ages, the installation will feature personal time machines and time travel devices created by submitting creators. Leading up to the exhibition, we will host a workshop on March 23, 2014 at Yell Gallery with materials and an interactive lecture component, where people can discuss ideas for alternative methods of time travel. The workshop will feature the “quantum time capsule”, where attendees can be part of the creation of a live installation at the Convention. We will also disseminate a curriculum for use in classrooms and afterschool programs for teachers to work with students to make work for the Convention.
The Time Travel Convention opening reception will also be the premiere of AfroFuturist Affair creator R.Phillip’s experimental book of short time travel tales called Recurrence Plot and her Sun Return celebration. The reception will feature readings by Metropolarity and a few other guest authors.
Seeking submissions of small installations, film, audio/video, literature, photography, objects, and art pieces dealing with time travel, such as personal time machines and devices and time travel artifacts. Works can be individual or collaborative, and should be experimental. Proposals should include a description of your project or piece, including dimensions, sizes, number, and other specifications. Please identify any audio/visual and electrical needs. Also include artist information and website if available.
Please submit a proposal for your submission to email@example.com by February 20 2014. The Time Travel Convention opening reception will take place at Yell Gallery in Philadelphia on April 5, 2014. For more information please firstname.lastname@example.org
