Africa, Community, and Facts: A man in Africa named Yacouba Sawadogo single handedly stopped the desertification of his region by reviving ancient farming and irrigation techniques despite being ridiculed by his community Ultrafacts.tumblr.comm athelind: imaginemedrawinglife: soundssimpleright: ultrafacts: Yacouba Sawadogo is an exceptional man โ€“ he single-handedly managed to solve a crisis that many scientists and development organizations could not. The simple old farmerโ€™s re-forestation and soil conservation techniques are so effective theyโ€™ve helped turn the tide in the fight against the desertification of the harsh lands in northern Burkina Faso. Over-farming, over-grazing and over population have, over the years, resulted in heavy soil erosion and drying in this landlocked West African nation. Although national and international researchers tried to fix the grave situation, it really didnโ€™t really make much of a difference. Until Yacouba decided to take matters into his own hands in 1980. Yacoubaโ€™s methods were so odd that his fellow farmers ridiculed him. But when his techniques successfully regenerated the forest, they were forced to sit up and take notice. Yacouba revived an ancient African farming practice called โ€˜zaiโ€™, which led to forest growth and increased soil quality. (Fact Source) Follow Ultrafacts for more facts The way it works is really cool! You can read about it here. Thereโ€™s been a documentary about him, too @solarpunk-aesthetic Something 19th and 20th century Western science consistently overlooked is that a lot of traditional methods are exquisite examples of the scientific method in action,ย the product of testing hypotheses and comparing results and control groups iteratively, over a period of hundreds or even thousands of years. Respect ancient wisdom. Respect ancient science.

Memes, Dawn, and Greed: ? WHEN AMERICA EVER- GREAT /L ERE GEP It's always been you, since the dawn of our creation, For thousands of years, before colonial rape and devastation, The mothers of human life, The creators of every man created, the creation of every strife, You continue to provide love but face it, Man continues to f*ck it up, There is more genetic diversity in the motherland, Then there is in the rest of the world, So you gave birth to those who live in other lands, Every boy, every history, every girl, Then came mans greed for power, You provided while he devoured, You loved while he enslaved, You raised man, men misbehaved, Now even your colour is brought in to question, Light skin supremacy, mentally illness and tension, Objectification is where you get positioned, Disrespect is mans ungrateful mission, You paint, you shave, You obey, you graze, And still he tries to kill you, Abuses and imprisons, Pawns you off on for pay per view, Controls all governments decisions, Tells you that a real woman is thinner, The media is eating her for snacks, Which woman is next for dinner, Businesses owners set booby traps, Your sexuality will get the job, Men control the wealth, Wear high heels and stay on top, But you gave men their health, The oppressors don't have true power, Their reinforce insecure positions with violence, Inside they are scared and cower, But act like benevolent tyrants, Scrutinising and scowling sour, Like a patriots country full of migrants, But you are realising your strengths each hour, Soon will be your time to attack, Soon will be time to take life back, Protecting humanity from men and worse, The actual extinction of life from Earth, We used to look to men as heroes fighting, But women are our only hope surviving. chakabars internationalwomensday @rleehim

Memes, Zero, and Desk: When you put something in the cart when ur shopping with ur mom and u hope she doesn't notice. @Dr Smashlove Aw hell, fvck, nah Bruh ๐Ÿ˜‚. My mama had eagle eyes at the grocery store line like a MOTHERFVCKER bruh. Hershey bar? Out. Pack of gum? Out. Box of Oreos? Out plus slap ๐Ÿ˜‚. That was a no brainer. I would literally see the cashier grab it and she was juuuuuuuust about to graze it across the scanner and right before the laser hit the package's bar code my mama said "I am sorry. Please put that to the side." And just then I would bear down, close my eyes, and SHMACK! Yep. Didn't even hurt. Just a minor sting. I expected that shit. Ayeeee thank u mama. There were a few (maybe four (4) or five (5)) times in my upbringing where I thought shit was sweet. And u were always there with a glare and that little (albeit fierce) hand to remind me that by all means, shit isn't sweet, shit was never sweet, and, to be clear, at no point in the future will shit ever be, sweet. Ain't no sweetness bih. Zero ๐Ÿ˜‚. I went thru a fat phase as a adult where I would eat like 18 Twix bars at my desk like "HAHAHAHA SEE MAMA SHIT REALLY IS SWEET" but then I'd feel nauseous, disgusting, disgusted, and unhappy and realize, "U know what, shit ain't sweet and that's potentially a good thing. Too much sweetness will make u sick and give u sugar diabetes." Mama u was a wise one. Or just cruel, and your cruelty masqueraded as wisdom. One of the two. Either way, u da real MVP ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
