THE MASK YOU LIVE IN follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's limited definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify women, and resolve conflicts through violence.
These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become "real" men.
Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the "boy crisis" and tactics to combat it.
The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.

Mandasi Devi - Goshel Village
I met Mandasi outside of Manali in the Himalayan foothills of Himachal Pradesh, India.
Her family grows apples for income as well as other ground crops to subsist off of, but she says that over the years she has noticed less and less snow each winter which results in less water for the crops in summer time.
Many apple orchards in the area have been abandoned as farmers move to higher altitudes in an attempt to find the cool climate that they need for their trees to produce fruits. Each year the illusive cool seems to creep higher and further away from traditional farming areas that have been cultivated for hundreds of years.

A crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophaga), on some pack ice, Paradise Bay, Antarctic. Ironically, crabeater seals do not eat crabs (there are no crabs in Antarctic waters), but consume more krill (shrimp-like crustaceans) than any other species on the planet. Misnamed by the early Antarctic whalers and sealers, crabeaters might more accurately be called the "krilleater" seal. The crabeater seal’s abundance is due, in large part, to the slaughter of the great baleen whales in Antarctic waters, which reduced whale feeding pressure on the krill and thus made krill more available to seals and penguins. But now there is a new kid on the block, humans are fishing krill as we speak, some 300,000 thousand tons annually and that number looks to increase, with a direct knock on effect to this fragile ecosystem. Seals, whales and penguins all rely on krill to thrive. More on the krill fishery in my next post. #protectantarctic#seal#seals#animals#bestoftheday#animalrights#animal#protect#istandwithmypack#sos#racingextinction#greenpeace#antartica#ice#globalwarming

It's not difficult to turn off all your lights for an hour. There is so much you can do, look at the stars, make a camp in your back garden or if you don't want to venture outside light some candles and read a book, play games with your family or maybe just talk to one another.
Earth hour is about reconnecting with nature, but we can also use it as an opportunity to reconnect with each other.
Do your bit to help save our planet - honestly, it's worth it.
~please share to help spread the word~
•TOMORROW! Switch off non-essential lights at 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 24, 2018. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
•Every year,millions of people around the world join the Earth Hour movement and switch off their lights for one hour to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
•Join this movement and help our planet stopping climate change.
•CONNECT TO EARTH
Credit @earthhourofficial one hour.... what #difference is that supposed to make? The answer is an incredible ammount. Not because of what happens during that hour, but what it later leads to. We as humans have #screwed up this #planet pretty badly. During that hour tomorrow, take some time out of "enjoying" the lights out (i know exactly what you plan on doing...) and think about how you can #change even a little. #walk a bit more, bike a bit more, hell just remember to turn off the lights when you go out. It's all a start, and it all helps against #globalwarming and to #conserveenergy#conserve because this..., this is the only planet we have. #earthhour#earthhour2018 why am I posting this? Well....I live on this planet, and to be blunt, #god isnt fixing this since he #doesntexist so we have to. #humanism is caring about others and where we live.

Suite et fin de la série sur la filière cacao en Côte d'Ivoire.
Fortin Bley, secrétaire général de la coopérative N’Zrama (« l’étoile », en langue baoulé) à N’Douci pose devant un stock de cacao. Comme d'autres producteurs de sa coopérative, Fortin s'est réapproprié les techniques ancestrales d'agroforesterie, qui consistent à planter les cacaoyers en association avec des arbres d’ombrage comme le bananier, l’oranger ou l’avocatier. Ces productions peuvent prendre le relais, en cas de perte substantielle de revenus liés au cacao.
Extrait de "Coup de chaud sur le cacao" : à la une du dernier Parisien Week-End. La Côte d'Ivoire, premier producteur mondial de cacao, voit aujourd'hui ses plantations, et une partie substantielle de son économie, menacées par le changement climatique, et développe, pour y faire face, les méthodes de l'agro-foresterie.

To make 1 hamburger we need more than 660 gallons of water (it’s the equivalent of a 2 month long shower). If you want to help this planet, reduce your meat consumption in addition to turn the water off.

Crazy facts from @leonardodicapriofdn
#Repost @yearsofliving Did you know if you’re 41 or younger you’ve never experienced a normal climate, not even once?
The last time it was cooler than the 20th century average was in 1976 when Gerald Ford was President of the United States. The first Star Wars movie had just started filming and Steve Jobs had just founded Apple computer in his garage. If you were born in the 1980’s, you grew up in the warmest decade ever recorded. That is until the 1990's, where every year was warmer than the 1980's average. And each decade has been hotter than the last, right up until today.
If you’re in your teens, almost every year of your life has been one of the hottest years ever recorded. 17 of the 18 hottest years on record have occurred since 2001. This is just the beginning. What may seem “normal” today will soon feel anything but. These are #climatefacts share widely.
Defending our air, water and communities requires more than a single voice. It requires daily actions both small and large. We created our No Hoax coffee blend with this in mind. Every bag purchased donates to the @nrdc to help in the widespread support of our environmental protection.
we dont need “new caps”. Fact/Update this morning on KCRW. “The Pacific Garbage Patch” is now 2x the size of Texas. And no signs of slowing in the growth. My Braclet’s are my small SMALL contribution to support the @4ocean cause. Made of recovered plastic from the ocean, and each bracelet removes ONE pound of trash from the ocean. #biodegradable#pollution#globalwarming#lazy#greed
Due to know the Newton 3rd law, which state that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
Same rule applies when you destroys your nature, yes it strikes back. Whenever civilizations try to destroy or alter the nature, nature did the same thing with them. Due to know why the global warming is on rise, why we facing water levels down in major cities of the world, why there are tsunamis, hurricanes, twisters and earthquakes every where, because we try to disturb the universal equation of the planet. We are using lot more energy, we have increased number of factories and cutting of trees all over the world. These things are take us towards the edge where there is only thing present which is downfall of our civilization .
Have you heard the news about lungs of the world?
The rain forests of Amazon river are known as the lungs of the world. They are the world largest plant which convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, but now they are also in danger of being cut.
This the time for us to do our part, just plant a single tree, or a pot plant in your home. Small steps from the humans make this world toward big leap of prosperity.
The KHS team is gearing up for a product challenge. We’re going to try out reusable paper towels and compare them to regular paper towels, sharing our findings and impressions. If you’re already using “unpaper” towels, we’d love to hear your suggestions and tips (feel free to drop us a comment or a DM). Stay tuned, more to come! Nice shot @simply.living.well!
#Regram#RG @leonardodicapriofdn: Forests, grasslands, mountains and wetlands are essential for water security. Natural ecosystems have a vital role to play in securing water resources -- regulating water flow, ensuring water quality, and reducing impacts from natural disasters. Our new paper launched with @undp on #worldwaterday called “Nature for Water” details the need for environmental conservation to help address the growing water crisis.
