I truly believe, that knowledge is the most valuable thing in our world. And I believe that knowledge must be free and accessible by anyone. Most problems in the society are caused by lack of knowledge. The less you know, the less you think, the faster (and better) someone else profits off your lack of knowledge, usually endangering you and your family.
Therefore, I decided to support @kurz_gesagt . They are, dare I say, the best at spreading valuable knowledge and are always talking about interesting topics. Go watch their videos if you haven't and I urge you to chip in at least a little bit to support them!
In the spirit of sharing love, wisdom is a value that's part of love and kindness. Understanding yourself, how the world works, how other's feel, having empathy and using your brains is all part of being on the right track to kindness. We're wearing our little wise owl today to remember this - learning is good, be it studying academically or studying ourselves to become better people.
Hey you! ✋ Lyra's bringin' the Monday morning market update for #yqr below ⬇️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sales in January: 115⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Average price: $263,270⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Average Days on Market: 85.1⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Months of Inventory: 10⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What does that mean?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's a buyer's market, folks. If homes continued to sell at this rate, with no new listings coming onto market, it would take 10 months to sell everything currently listed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just so you know, there were 344 new listings in January. 1,208 active listings as of this morning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sales are still happening but it's taking longer than it has in the past 5 years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For those thinking about making a move this year: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sellers: Understand that you'll need to spend a bit of money and put in some work to get top dollar for your property. Interview multiple agents to find the right fit for you.Listen to the agent you've hired. Pro tip: pack your stuff & stay positive!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Buyers: Make sure you have the down payment + closing costs. Secure your mortgage pre-approval. Find an agent to guide you through the rest of the process. Be clear on what you need. *pro-tip: location is 🔑⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are someone looking to do both, understand that where you might feel you will lose on the sale, you will likely recuperate by getting a great price on the purchase. Don't let what you've heard about the market deter you from making a move this year. Crazy things happen in real estate every single day and every situation is different. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ultimate pro tip for all: get advice from a professional who you can trust. 💯⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our field trip has been oh so eventful, adventurous and insightful. Active modern bee hives have been slowly yet steadily embraced amongst farmers, though we just learnt something that changes the game with designing effective hives for Ethiopia: the frames must be slimmer in width! This not only helps with honeycomb formation and the bee’s orientation, but can increase yield per hive (by adding at least 2 more frames in each hive!). We’re a little sheepish that we didn’t know early, but it’s about the process right? Pictured here is a snapshot of one of our beloved farmers (and our humble forest co-ordinator) Sissay Girma’s apiary of modern hives, with his traditional hives scattered throughout the forest behind him. 🌿🍯 #maryiza#fieldnotes
As I ALWAYS say don’t self treat that itch, soreness burning etc and if your not improving on the treatment your HCP is giving you, or you just don’t feel confident in the treatment even if it’s a tiny niggle at the back of your mind ask for a second opinion.
A condition called #lichensclerosus & #lichenplanus has very similar symptoms to #thrush at the beginning and why it is so often assumed thrush by women & unfortunately unless on the ball HCPs this also includes #gynaecologists so if you feel something isn’t right ask to be referred to a vulva dermatologist or if you have one in your local area self refer to a GUM clinic the majority of those that work in them are lovely & caring but unfortunately more & more are being shut down.
There are MANY vulva skin conditions we can get & as with most things in life as we age we are more prone ( obviously any age can get get anything & the youngest for LS is 2 & the youngest for vulva cancer is mid 20s) if LS is left untreated for many years it can in rare cases turn to vulva cancer, & left unchecked it can cause havoc with the architecture of the area.
. @lichensclerosusuk & @vulvalcancerukawareness are the experts & are campaigning tirelessly to bring awareness of yet another couple of taboo conditions.
🍄Awesome comic and interesting solution to the Spotted Lantern Fly menace from @baylorstopnotchtree. Anyone else using this unique method (see description below) to combat these little invaders? #TeamLogOX#knowledgeispower 👍🏼🇺🇸🌳 #Repost@baylorstopnotchtree
Picture It: Year 2020, United States as we know it. An invader arrives from foreign land, an insect villain ravaging our crop and wrecking havoc. Suddenly a psychedelic fungus emerges deep from within the soil saving the world from total destruction!! Sounds like something outta Marvel, right!?! Well... This trippy fungus could prove a formidable opponent against the invasive Spotted lanternfly.
In fact, a pair of native fungi are joining the fight against the pest, Batkoa major and Beauveria bassiana (already used in commercially available insecticides)
A lung study published last year showed that using traditional cleaners in your home one time a week is the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes per day. 🚬🤯
It takes less than 30 seconds for those chemicals to be absorbed through your skin.
👉🏻What you’re cleaning your floors with...you, your babies, kids and fur babies are absorbing through your feet ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻What you’re cleaning your counters with...is being transferred into the food you’re eating
👉🏻What you’re cleaning your bathtub with...you’re soaking your body in
👉🏻What you wash your clothes and bedding in....you’re covering your entire body with ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻Your skin is the largest organ of your body and absorbs everything you put on it ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sadly, most Americans are still using completely toxic cleaners. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Toxic does not equal clean.
You CAN utilize options that are safe AND effective. This isn’t a compromise you have to make. This stuff matters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My family uses Thieves household cleaner for literally everything. My floors. My mirrors. My counters. My tub. It’s the ONLY cleaning product you will find in my house. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cheaper than most store bought cleaners, smells amazing, and is super effective. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
