“Stop sending expired food”….”fried chicken 64.99” 
IQALUIT, Nunavut — A head of cabbage for $20. Fifteen bucks for a small bag of apples.
A case of ginger ale: $82.
Fed up and frustrated by sky-high food prices and concerned over widespread hunger in their communities, thousands of Inuit have spent weeks posting pictures and price tags from their local grocery stores to a Facebook site called Feed My Family.

Holy hell.


WHAT IN THE FUCK? This shit is not okay.


ughhslfkajsdlf gross gross gross
64.99?????


These people are starving for a reason.
Conservationists
have been starving
these people
to death for years.


Reblogging for the extra articles. 
Also… I might show up to this protest and support them. 


Pay attention to this stuff, please, followers who haven’t heard about this!  This kind of thing is completely erased in news media.


This is really fucking important.
This is why I don’t respect anyone who blindly supports the anti-sealing protestors. Because for a lot of people, it’s the only affordable option.
It’s not just Iqaluit. In Nain, Labrador this problem has been going on for ages and nobody does anything about it. $47 for a ham and $17 for a block of cheese. In Rigolet, Labrador, a loaf of bread costs $7. Here’s another picture of an Iqaluit food price changing before your very eyes.
The NNCP is starving people, reducing their food choices, and keeping people on EI poor. This is so, so wrong.

How can we help? I joined the group and checked out the website, but I didn’t see anything that can be actively done (other than raising awareness, which, of course, is great).

Excellent question! If you read through the group (which is here, for anyone who missed it), there are people talking about some ways to help.
Look at the latest news on the Feeding My Family website to see what the priorities are and how you might be able to help.
If you’re Canadian, call your local MP and ask to discuss this issue and express your concern.
Look up ways to support putting pressure onto airlines to charge fair rates (a $1000 plane ticket should be from one coast to the other, not a few hundred miles).
Research and learn what you can about food sustainability. For a start, how about learning square foot/metre (French intensive) gardening or container gardening and starting to practice it yourself? Share these techniques with friends and family. Get good at it so you can teach them to others who have poor food security in your own area.
For the love of God, stop signing “anti-sealing”/”anti-hunting” petitions and supporting Greenpeace’s actions without understanding the complicated, nuanced situation in the North.
Watch the FB group, because people there mention direct donations and ways to help the organizations actually on the ground there.
For example, one person is starting up a donation project/fundraiser.
Look at what organizations like FoodShare are doing and support them.
There is so much to be done. Sharing news articles and stories, lists of resources, donation and fundraising pages, and knowledge about food security is critical, but there’s a lot more work of all sorts.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ Debuts At No. 1 On Hot 100

Swift’s new single blasts in at No. 1, thanks to hefty sales, streaming and airplay. Plus, Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ vaults 39-2 following the premiere of its video.

Taylor Swift rockets onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 1 with “Shake It Off.” As expected, her new self-empowerment anthem debuts at the top following its first week of availability.

The explosion of “Shake” also spurs Swift to vault to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (which measures song and album sales, radio airplay, streaming and social activity), up from No. 69 last week. (A deeper story covering the latest Artist 100 to follow on Billboard.com.)
 
The lead single from Swift’s Oct. 27 Big Machine Records album 1989 soars in at the Hot 100’s summit fueled by a combination of immense sales, radio airplay and streaming (the chart’s three measurement components). Swift released the song for digital purchase and to radio, and premiered its official video, last Monday (Aug. 18, just after 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET), the same day that she hosted a Yahoo! live stream announcing the new set’s release.
 
Swift also performed “Shake” on the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (Aug. 24).

"Shake" marks Swift’s second Hot 100 No. 1, following 2012’s three-week leader "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," the first single from her last album,Red.

"Shake" arrives with 544,000 first-week downloads sold in the week ending Aug. 24, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sum marks the greatest weekly total this year and the fourth-best bow all-time, two of which now belong to Swift. Flo Rida’s “Right Round” began with 636,000 (Feb. 28, 2009), followed by Swift’s “Together” (623,000, Sept. 1, 2012). Katy Perry’s “Roar” ranks third with 557,000 sold in its first week (Aug. 31, 2013).

"Shake" marks Swift’s seventh Digital Songs No. 1 (all of which have debuted at the apex). She ties Britney Spears for the fourth-most leaders, following Rihanna (13), Perry (10) and Eminem (nine).

On the Streaming Songs chart, “Shake” catapults in for a No. 2 debut with 18.4 million first-week U.S. streams, according to Nielsen BDS. With the song not available on on-demand audio subscription services, it arrives with 98 percent of its streaming points from Vevo on YouTube clicks for its video.

On Radio Songs, “Shake” skyrockets 45-9 in its second week with a 139 percent increase to 71 million all-format audience impressions, according to BDS. (Why was “Shake” on Radio Songs last week but not Digital Songs or Streaming Songs? Radio Songs follows a Wednesday-Tuesday tracking week, while sales and streaming cover a Monday-Sunday period. “Shake” debuted on Radio Songs last week with 29 million impressions in its first two days, aided by hourly plays on participating Clear Channel and Media Entertainment-owned pop and adult pop radio stations in its first day-and-a-half; those plays, thus, do not contribute to the song’s sum on this week’s list.)
 
"Shake" is the first song to reach the Radio Songs top 10 in two weeks or fewer since Lady Gaga’s "Born This Way" debuted at No. 6 (with 79 million) on Feb. 26, 2011. The song went on to top the April 2, 2011, tally.
 
As previously reported, “Shake” shattered a radio record, launching at an all-time-best No. 9 on Adult Pop Songs. It also scores a record-matching No. 12 start on Pop Songs this week.

Wow. Much overwhelming of uni. stuff. Like, I have to pick Durham colleges to look around. Plus with my current grades I probably wouldn’t get into any of the unis which I really want to. Argh. 

ABBC. I really hope some remarks change it to AABB. Ugh, they’d better. I need AAA for York, which is my ideal choice. Since I got back from HS I’ve had a bit of a knot in my stomach of things I need to do.

Wow, I need to finish 4 books, and start writing my EPQ by Tuesday. And at the weekend I’m going to the Warner Bros. Studios. Wow, I have so much stuff to do.

And then mum’s been a state too, and things aren’t fun at home. Damn the bloody separation. I don’t understand why this has to happen to me. Idk, I was probably just terrible in a past life.

Basically, I’m overwhelmed with stress and family stuff. But HS was fab, but I can’t exactly say much atm because I’m just feeling depressed.

My faith in pizza guys has gone up 123%

NO LET ME TELL YOU A STORYSo a few weeks ago I was in a hotel in Savannah with my grampa in the hospital next door, Mom was over staying with him, and the battery in the smoke detector went out so every 5 minutes it would let off this loud, high pitched ‘CHIRP’.It was annoying as fuck, so I called the front desk to see if they had a battery for it, and they said the only thing they could do was change rooms. We’d already settled in for the night, and needed the next door rooms for my uncles the next day, so I said I’d deal. My uncles had my car in the next town over, so I couldn’t drive and get one myself.An hour later, I’m ordering pizza and have gone insane because the damn thing CHIRPS. SO. MUCH.So I begged the pizza guy on the phone to stop and get me a battery, told him I’d pay for the battery, and give him an extra tip for it, and he was chill with it. This adorable fucker gets to my room with the battery, opens it, asks to see the smoke detector, CLIMBS ON THE BED, CHANGES THE BATTERY FOR ME, and tests it.My pizza was only 20 dollars, but I gave him 40 and told him to keep the change.

I am clearly not fully utilizing my pizza delivery person…..

What’s next pizza delivery hitmen

included in this order for a large ground beef is a dossier containing information on your target. he is to be neutralized before delivery. do not let him reach the airport. no pepperoni.
