This week I made an animated identification chart of North American butterflies. You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here :)

An archeologist from the University of Toronto is celebrating the discovery this summer of the first complete example of a cruciform pit home across from Tuktoyaktuk, N.W.T. in the Mackenzie Delta.

The structures were built by Inuvialuit from about 500 years ago up…

Super cool!

 Cancer: This week there will be so many ways to know your own self, there will be so many ways to anchor yourself in this world. You can wear clothes that look like the fire you feel in your heart, you can wear clothes that match all the greens and blues of your dreams; you can wear clothes that glitter like the stars. There are so many songs you can sing, there are so many spells you can cast, there are so many ways to remind yourself of the person you most want to be.

Once you start paying attention to it (Ferguson)

bonerella:

Once you start paying attention to the ludicrous amount of misinformation, bizarre word usage, and various other indicators that the media is incredibly biased in its representation of the events in Ferguson, you can’t unsee it:

Keep Union-Pearson express train affordable, councillor urges | Toronto Star

However, Metrolinx spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins said the airport link was not meant to be like transit. Aimed at time-pressed business executives, the trip will take 25 minutes, with trains departing every 15 minutes.”

I was listening to a piece about this on the radio this morning and right now they’re expecting to the fare to be ~$20-30 + tax, + a surcharge to help the GTAA recover lost profit from people not parking at the airport (which I think is bullshit “It’s one thing to pay for parking, but people shouldn’t be paying for not parking. It’s crazy.” -Toronto Councillor Josh Matlow)

Business execs? They don’t need this train. They can afford the $58 cab fare, and I’m sure in many cases would rather that than schlepping it on public transit. I need this train, instead of the ~1.5 hour trip on the TTC it takes right now (if the train was >$20 I’d continue taking the TTC for $3.25 thank you very much). Tourists need this train. As they talked about on the radio this morning London was one of the only major cities where it was more expensive (accounting for currency differences etc) but even that made sense given the distance, and you know, London being super expensive in every regard. I don’t pay that much to take the train from Burlington to Toronto (an hour) or even get to Toronto on the bus. 

This is a $456-million project. So yeah, let’s hope it’s actually affordable.
