Save the Arctic !!

The Arctic ice we all depend on is disappearing. Fast. Soon it could be ice free for the first time since humans walked the Earth. This would be not only devastating for the people, polar bears, narwhals, walruses and other species that live there – but for the rest of us too.

Greenpeace made an awesome video to support the cause. Please watch the video and support the cause here!

Muslims are Terrorists ?? Really !!

I came across an article recently, that has been floating over the internet for some days. Quite thought provoking !!

 

I liked the answer of this Germaniun Muslim scholar when he was asked about terrorism and Islam: He said: Who started the first world war? … Muslims ? Who started the second world war? … Muslims ? Who killed about 20 millions of Aborigines in Australia? … Muslims ?? Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? M…uslims ?? Who killed more than 100 millions of Indians in North America? …… Muslims ?? Who killed more than 50 millions of Indians in south America? …. Muslims ?? Who took about 180 millions of African people as slaves and 88% of them died and was thrown in Atlantic ocean? Muslims ?? NO …. They weren’t Muslims!!! First of all, You have to define terrorism properly.. If a non-Muslim does something bad.. It is crime.. But .. If a Muslim commits the same.. He is a terrorist.. So first remove this double standard.. Then come to the point!!

 

Pretty True, huh !!

Sadly, both kittens you are about to see have died due to some breathing failure. They died a few months after they were born, at the end of October 2010. RIP, Charlie and Spike.

The two kittens had a rare disease called Myotonia congenita, also known as ‘fainting goat’ syndrome, more common for goats. The disease had never been found in cats before. At the slightest sound or movement, the kittens responded by collapsing into a rigid paralysis which typically lasted for one minute until they returned to normal.

 

I can well see where Humanity is heading to. 😥
Real Sad !!

 

How London died, once …

London, beginning of the 19th century. Industrial revolution, massive population growth. First flushing toilets appear. City council is no longer capable of maintaining the numerous cesspools in the city and takes the decision to stop maintaining them.

In 1815, human waste from more than 200,000 cesspools is washed away into the river Thames, the source of drinking water. Consequently, London starts dying of cholera. Later, in 1858, during a very hot summer, all London stinks. Big time.

This time is known as The Great Stink.
Whoever could, left the London. Life for the rest was tough though. People died on the streets, hospitals were over-filled.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

And every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn’t hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days and weeks passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the world outside. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it for himself.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.

 

 

ActionAid recently carried out an extraordinary survey where 1,000 women from Afghanistan were polled to gain a rare insight into their opinions about living through the last ten years of war and the current reconciliation process with the Taliban and have released a video to bring these shocking findings to life.
