The palms are dying from a fungus and an invasive insect that eat away at the tree essentially killing it. The city of Los Angeles has decided that they won’t be replacing the palms, but will be planting a more drought tolerant and shadier tree instead. || #themoreyouknow#losangeles#palmtrees#documentary

“Sometimes progesterone seems to be chronically deficienct (leading to slight-though possibly prolonged-menstruation, or amenorrhea), in women who exercise hard. Since progesterone can be converted into cortisone to handle stress, this would explain why well trained athletes (who need lots of cortisone) so often miss periods. It seems to be a simple over-consumption of progesterone, which is probably a reasonable biological adaptation, preventing pregnancy during times of stress.” -Ray Peat, PhD

Smoking was a pretty big deal during World War II. So much so, that President Roosevelt made tobacco a protected crop as part of the war effort. Soldiers were encouraged to smoke to improve morale and relieve boredom, and ration packs for all of the allied forces included cigarettes!
It is estimated that the rate of cigarette smoking jumped by 75% between 1940-1945, with annual consumption in the US reaching 3500 cigarettes per person!! Records were broken in 1943 when 290 billion cigarettes were distributed!! #themoreyouknow#fortlangley#tobacco#tobacciana#tobaccoadvertising#antiques#collectibles#antiqueshop#langley#antiquedecor#statementpiece
Did you know that last year, Americans spent $15 Billion on surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures?

👊 "Mediocrity is the highest form of selfishness.” Brian Klemmer
Here are three valuable tips to make better choices a staple in your life and ensure you ban mediocrity from your life.
1️⃣Make starting your day with 15 minutes of positive reading part of your daily improvement diet.
The first thing you are exposed to make the most impact on your brain and mindset.
Scrolling mindlessly through your Faceboook feed or checking e-mails is probably not providing as inspirational a start as a well-chosen self-improvement book.
2️⃣List behaviors in your daily agenda as if they had already happened, and put the reward besides it.
Human beings are highly impressionable creatures. Why not use it to our advantage? Attach a positive emotion to your goal and envision it as a whole.
In your agenda, it would look this. Once you completed, put a check mark on it. Select actionable goals such as: I ate 3 g of protein per kg of bodyweight; it made me recover faster, and cut my cravings for carbs.

Did 8 sets of 3 @ 90% on power cleans, got me closer to achieving my vertical jump.
3️⃣End the day with an assessment.
Ask yourself intelligent questions.
Marshall Goldsmith encourages us to favour active questions that rate effort.
So you should be asking: Did I do MY BEST to…. (insert goal) ?
At first, you’ll find yourself slacking on several items.
Rate daily, and scrutinize evolution over weeks.
The key is to manage your efforts.
Allocate energy where it is needed.
Put some goal on maintenance while catching up on the ‘trouble’ areas.
Same as training. Double, triple effort on weaknesses and put the your strongest points on maintenance.
Work harder AND smarter.
People at work keep asking "what are you all dressed up for?" And I keep saying "just dressed as a human being" because on my days off I try not to be a shapeless blob in a hair net. #themoreyouknow#offdutycooklife
“Oh, professional makeup? I can’t afford that.” I hear this all. The. Time.
But here’s the thing. It’s less expensive, and lasts longer than most of the popular brands out there.
Make Up Forever Ultra HD $43
Too Faced Born This Way $39
Estée Lauder Double Wear $42
Urban Decay Naked Skin $40
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Longwear $47
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation $50
LimeLight Botanical Foundation? $36
Those other brands are only 18%-23% pigment. LimeLight is 50% pigment. So not only does it cost less, you use less! You’ll get 6-12 months out of one pan depending on how often you wear foundation and how much coverage you prefer.
Often times it can be a struggle to wake your baby up for his feedings. Some fast tips that may help bring your baby to a wakeful state but are subtle and not jarring (because no one likes to be woken up from a nap): start with a little stimulation by rubbing his feet and belly. Gently begin talking to him while keeping eye contact which will engage him. If all else fails, add a cool, damp washcloth to his feet or wipe his face gently. When you bring him to the breast, express a bit of milk so that he is stimulated by the smell and the taste to his lips. He will be eating in no time!
Fun fact: the leaves on white grape vines don’t ever turn orange/red; just yellow, to brown, and then they fall. The rich orange and red leaves are only found on red grape vines! #themoreyouknow 10 points to the first person to guess where this is in #sonomacounty 🧐 (hint: these are right across the street from each other) #thenorcalwinos
Net neutrality is the freedom we have now. The FCC wants to allow ISP's (Verizon, Comcast, etc) to be able to block apps, slow websites, and charge fees to control what you see & do online. They vote December 14th. But if Congress gets enough calls, *they* can stop the FCC. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is SO corrupt and has been paid by these big companies. He's absolute trash. There's also a scheme uncovered with millions of fake American comments on the FCC asking to repeal Net Neutrality. We've already seen what happens in Portugal when we lose net neutrality. The companies are getting charged but pass it on to us the consumer at a premium. Not only do you pay for your data, then you pay extra to choose which grouping of media gets higher streaming preference. Your social media would be a separate fee, your emails a separate fee, your music separate. No this is not a joke. Go to battleforthenet.com and it will do all the work for you. It will make the call, find your reps and even has text for you to repeat. PLEASE DO ANYTHING.
As natives we must continue to teach people the truth of our culture and existence. We must accept the fact that things have changed and made it more difficult on us but we mustn’t accept the constant need to demeaning views set on our people, nor the constant need to write us out of history properly. Everyday for a Native is a day of thanks not a commercialized holiday that’s used to sell turkey, ham, beer and higher priced commercials during the NFL games playing. The celebrated day only encourages the celebration of an end to a traditional way of life, oddly those who wrote history depict us as peaceful people who took on the Anglo settler and showed him how to harvest and hunt. We broke bread and he broke out back but that part is left out. This isn’t a political rant just a Native reminder to those non native who follow. Be thankful daily not just once a year. #nativepride#nativeamerican#truthbetold#truth#realtalk#turkeydayisforturkeys#turkeyday#thanksgiving#keepit100#keepitreal#themoreyouknow
7. Weirdest planets
WASP-12b is the hottest ever exoplanet discovered with an average temperature of 2250 degrees celsius.
This is because it orbits just 2,115,000 miles from its host star – Earth orbits the sun at 44 times this distance.
As a result, it takes just over a day to orbit the star, compared to a year for us.
When everyone is celebrating “#thanksgiving ” this is the reality of what they’re thankful for. It’s not another #native bitch or rant it’s a simple reality, a fact of life. When you think about it long and hard it’s those very same people who continue to harvest the greens all you vegans love, the corn and mixed fruit bowls we sprinkle Chile all over and enjoy. The very same people that are constantly treated like second rate citizens and being harassed and pushed out. I’m thankful for my family and friends and those who continue to do positive things to stand for the better of man and the greater good of our land. But fuck celebrating a 1000 Donald trumps and what they did to our ancestors. Not saying all of them were bad but of all the ones that came NONE stopped the madness that took place. I love turkey but fuck thanksgiving. #turkeyday#truth @georgelopez #themoreyouknow#knowlegdeispower
