    Fun Facts About Honey

    - Honey is mostly sugar (WoW!) it is 80% sugar and 20% water (double WoW!)

    - There are over 20,000 species of bees, but only 4 make HONEY

    -Honey is the ONLY food that contains all the substances you need to survive (Including WATER)

    -Children under the age of 1 should not eat honey… why? because sometimes it contains bad stuff called botulism and can cause them to get botulism poisoning (that sucks, even infants should taste the deliciousness that is honey)

    -Honey will crystallize under optimum temperatures (this has a lot to do with how you store it)

    -Bees produce honey to eat during the winter when there are no flowers and no nectar for them.

    -A honeybee would only need an ounce of honey to be able to fuel a flight around the world (this makes for a very cultural bee!)

    -A typical beehive can make up to 400 pounds of honey a year! (Wowza!)

    This reads like it was written by a bee and I’m 100% here for it

    This is singlehandedly THE BEST compliment I have ever received :)

    WHAT’S HAPPENING IN SERBIA?

    TL;DR: we’re living under a dictatorship. people are currently protesting the deaths caused by decisions the government made while prioritising the election over human lives. mainstream news are making it seem like the protesters are hooligans who are protesting new safety measures and not the dictatorship they refuse to even acknowledge.

    THE LEAD-UP

    here’s a brief list of things that caused the people to protest:

    the elections have been rigged since the moment aleksandar vučić became president. not even in a relatively subtle way like in the usa (gerrymandering), but by literally replacing sacks of voting papers with ones that are voting for sns (srpska narodna stranka, the president’s party)

    we were lied to about when the first covid-19 case appeared in serbia. the government withheld information from us because it benefited them.

    also, about a week before the lockdown, the president made fun of the virus, encouraging people to “go shop in milano if they want”. when the situation got serious, he shifted the blame to the people.

    hospitals all around the country were and still are severely underfunded. they’re reusing masks, don’t have enough space for all the patients, and the tests we’re still given aren’t accurate.

    the lockdown was lifted prematurely because of the parliamentary elections. if you look up “serbia covid19 cases” on google, you’ll see that the second wave started around june 21st, which is when the election was.

    right after the election was over, the government set extreme safety measures, including: police enforced lockdown fri-sun, an attempt to force all belgrade students out of their dorms during exam season, etc.

    THE PROTESTS

    last night (july 7th), there was a huge unorganized protest outside of the belgrade parliament building.

    as expected, the police turned it into a violent protest. they used tear gas 26 times, attacked people who weren’t even protesting, and used unnecessary force against those who were. a man was choked the same way george floyd was.

    only n1 (cnn’s channel) actually informed people that this was happening, and their website was down all night last night. every other network was airing their usual program, since they’re controlled by the government.

    the people got into the parliament building a few times, but were ultimately forced out violently by the police.

    there were protests in other cities too, but they weren’t as large.

    rts (the most watched channel in the country) is putting all the blame on the protesters and making it seem as if they’re protesting the new safety measures, and not the dictatorship of aleksandar vučić.

    every other international news source is pretty much doing the same.

    WHAT NOW?

    the protests will continue. in case they’re successful, there will be another election, one that won’t put only sns members in the parliament (they make up more than 70% as of right now).

    in case they’re not successful, we’ll be expecting a change of the constitution that will state that there’s no limit to how many terms a president can have. we’ll live under complete dictatorship.

    the most you, outside of serbia, can do is share correct information and spread awareness about what’s happening.

    reblog and share this post, share other posts (on instagram especially) made by serbian people, call out false information when you see it.

    So yeah it’s lush UK that’s pro cop and lush US said black lives matter but honestly u should still be buying from black owned businesses

    pastisregret

    if you guys want a good black owned business that makes amazing bath and body products, skincare, and candles, i really recommend shea shea bakery! they specialize in making pastry themed products that look so much like the real thing it’s amazing!

    cryhounds

    one of my favorite black owned bath and body brands is foxie cosmetics, it's run by a black woman who experiences chronic pain and she actually has a pain relieving blend that she puts into all of her bath bombs which i am absolutely obsessed with. she also has some truly outstanding skincare products, and imo her formulations are WAYYYYYYYY better than lush's ever were.
