From Honduras to New Caledonia, from the Bahamas to the Maldives, the people have spoken. And governments have listened. Now is the time for Hong Kong to wake up! The public is ready. The business sector is behind us. Now is the time for a total sale and possession ban on shark fin in Hong Kong. By doing so, Hong Kong will take a giant step to join the conservation efforts of numerous countries around the world who have enacted shark protection legislation. In Latin America it will join Honduras. In the United States it will join California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Maryland, Delaware and Oregon. In the Pacific region it will join Palau, Tokelau, Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Cook Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and New Caledonia. Even China has agreed to stop serving shark fin soup at official banquets, to take effect in the next year or two.
Banning shark fin from the streets of Hong Kong will be the single most important marine conservation achievement of the year. It will be an important step towards protecting the health of our oceans. It will also remove the stain on Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-class tourism hub.

BALLSIEST. PETITION. EVER.
IF THERE WAS EVER A HEAD TO THIS DRAGON - THERE IT IS. DO YOU KNOW WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THIS WOULD MAKE??? WITHOUT THE ISSUE OF SHARK FIN SOUP WE COULD CONCENTRATE ON THE ISSUE OF BYCATCH AND SOLVE THIS ISSUE PERMANENTLY.

Jon rip them boys a new asshole
See, Jon Stewart usually does a lot of satirical humour, but at this point, the writers are just like “fuck the comedy this shit is real” and I was so happy to see that they finally covered this, and it was really well done.
Hey, guys. I’ve never done anything like this before, but if you’ve been following me, you’ll know that I’m in a really dire situation. I’ve been trying to get a student loan to help me and my family pay for me to finally be able to transfer out of community college, but I’ve essentially been…
A soldier, Greg Lestrade, and a war veteran from Witch Hunting War, Dr. John Watson, arrive to a small town in the middle of nowhere. The town is led by mayor Mycroft Holmes and his brother, Sherlock Holmes. First, there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong, until Greg and John find out that the mayor and his brother are vampires, their housekeeper is an old witch, their servant is a ghoul and the town’s councillor is a warlock. Also, things get complicated when Greg finds out he is a werewolf.
Above all this, things get even more worse when they find out that someone knows about the Holmes family’s dark secret, and wants to end the line of the vampires.
