Hiccstrid Parallels (2/?)
omg I’ve always loved Astrid for this. She doesn’t just try and talk to him at a normal level, because she knows he avoids eye contact. He’s used of a life of people LITERALLY looking down at him, so he just escapes by glancing downward when he feels inadequate. But she won’t have it from him— she gets down ON HIS LEVEL and makes him look up. Makes him see what she sees: somebody worthwhile and worth looking straight in the eye.
Reblogging for that amazing comment.

More scuba diving means sicker coral reefs
“The gorgeous coral reefs around Koh Tao, Thailand draw thousands of tourists every year. But frequent scuba diving appears to be increasing the rate of coral disease, threatening to spoil the natural resource that locals depend on for their livelihood.
Compared to fishing, tourism may seem like a relatively sustainable way to boost the local economy. On the island of Koh Tao, small fisheries have declined in favor of playing host to more than 300,000 divers per year. The number of visitors rose by roughly five times from 1992 to 2003, and about 50 dive operators now work on the island.”
