The latest trend in Bonsai (the Japanese art form of growing miniature trees) is to grow trees even smaller.
Artists are creating tiny plants, creating a new category known as cho-mini bonsai (ultra-small bonsai).

It’s Time to Speak Up for Salmon!
Kayla Brown, Hupa, stands with Chief Caleen Sisk, Winnemem Wintu, for Rivers and Water.
The Hupa People are in a crisis situation, with a potential repeat of the 2002 salmon kill on the Klamath and Trinity Rivers. Because the Bureau of Reclamation is refusing to let enough water out of the dams, the rivers are too low and too warm, and the salmon are beginning to show signs of disease.

If you claim to be an activist and say “it’s not my job to educate you” then you’re a pretty terrible activist. the point of activism is to advocate for your cause, spread information and try to get people to understand your goals. If you refuse to even help people understand, then you’re a pretty terrible activist and will probably turn people off of your cause.
That’s basically their daily functions.
