Peek Behind-the-scenes at Tennessee Aquarium’s Baby Stingrays!
A new Haller’s Round Stingray arrived at the Tennessee Aquarium with a surprise of her own to share: she gave birth to a litter of five on October 21, soon after her arrival. Each baby measures about three inches (7.6 cm), minus the tail, and could grow to be slightly larger than 12 inches (30 cm) in disk size. Born fully developed, the babies are immediately able to swim and require no parental care.

Green Lake (Grüner See) in Styria, Austria, is an amazing place. For half of the year, it’s an underwater village with fish swimming through the branches of trees, a floor covered in grass, benches and bridges.
For the other half, it is over ground. In the frozen winter months the area is almost completely dry and is a favorite site for hikers. As the temperature begins to rise in spring, the ice and snow on the mountaintops begins to melt and runs down into the basin of land below. The waters are at their highest in June when it becomes a mecca for divers keen to explore the rare phenomenon.
I feel like doing some definitions of terms I use a lot in my head! My high school did not require basic money management as a class (boo), so I learned this stuff from ~the internet~.
Emergency fund: the money you keep in savings for emergencies. For a lot of people in my circle of friends/family, emergencies are medium-sized car repairs, or about 500-1000 bucks. Anything is better than nothing here. If you have a 50 dollar emergency and a paycheck in two days you’re still stuck. I prefer a generous emergency fund, but it’s a matter of personal situation and comfort.

Re: tags - sometimes if you brown your butter it makes it more - buttery? flavorful, I guess - for the same amount of butter. Your mileage may vary.
