Having A Good time in a temporal Island

Having A Good time in a temporal Island

Having A Good time in a temporal Island, would you go for it? I wouldn’t even think twice about it. Its a big yes for me. And I have just a nice place that I will plan on a day to go and enjoy the ocean there.

Islands are naturally full of life and unique environment. I think water separates them from all the bad things until human developments happen.

Island that stays alive for four hours in a given season

During my visit to the ocean, I was shown a portion of the ocean that dries up sometimes. Allowing people to enjoy some calmness of the ocean within its vicinity. The place can remain dry for almost four hours, meaning, you can even hold a short party there.

When you are enjoying a boat ride, the breeze kisses your face in amazing ways. As the waves soothe your moods. The land continues to reduce in size as you sail deeper into the ocean.

Its normally feels like you are entering a different and new world. The feeling is incredible.

Species that feed on plants are strong and have a long lifespan

Species that feed on plants are strong and have a long lifespan

Species that feed on plants are strong and have a long lifespan. Herbivores are some of the animal species that have been observed to live many years. If they are lucky enough to evade preditor’s wrath. Those who have no predictors, live to enjoy extreme old age. Is it related to their diet?

Plant-eating organisms

These are species whose diet is solely comprised of plant parts. We can refer to them as true vegans.

They can be divided into various groups depending on which plants they consume, or how they eat.

That is, we have those that feed on fruits ( Frugivores), nector (nectarivorous), etc. And we have the browsers that obtain leaves, stems and bark from plants. While grazers eat vegetation at the ground level.

Samples of these herbivores include:

  • Elephant
  • Rhino
  • Hippo
  • Buffalo
  • Giraffe
  • Wildebeest

As you can already tell, these are some of the most dangerous animals that even intimidate their predators.

Now you understand why the antelopes and other small herbivores, end up being the most targeted.

Does this mean that if we were to embrace the vegan diet, we could be strong?

Don’t Step on Corals, They are alive

Don’t Step on Corals, They are alive

Don’t Step on Corals, They are alive. And you wouldn’t like anyone stepping on you either. If you are having a boat ride or any other ride into the ocean with a captain who doesn’t care much about the environment, they may use it as a “fun thing” to do when you get at the deep end.

I have ever been a victim of that, I stepped on corals thinking they were dead

Sometime last year, when I visited the ocean, I did exactly that after been wrongly informed by my guide that that place had dead corals. In the spirit of promoting sustainable tourism, I decided to promote the locals by choosing them for my boat ride services.

Despite not having school know-how knowledge, they were well-informed about the ocean. They understood the area so well to a point of making someone fall in love with the place instantly.

When we got to the deep end, they offered to dive in and bring us some marine creatures. Which included two urchins, male and female. This is the point they encouraged me to enter the ocean and enjoy the waters. And since I didn’t have sufficient safety clothing, I expressed my concern. And that’s when he told him, that they were dead corals around us. SoI just had to step on them and I will be fine.

During my recent visit, is when I realized. They were not entirely truthful. The corals were very much alive and this means, I stepped and maybe killed some in the process. I felt really bad, I hate being a problem for the environment.

But am well-informed know, and I wouldn’t like you to make the same mistake.

So here are some of the tips to ensure you respect corals;

Uganda cooking with Volcanic rocks to save their Forests

Uganda cooking with Volcanic rocks to save their Forests

Uganda cooking with Volcanic rocks to save their Forests. Isn’t that amazing? It’s great to see more countries embracing ways that are eco-friendly. Hence writing off the damage we have been causing our environment.

As much as we may need developments and innovations, we were blinded sided when it came to its effects on the environment. But not anymore. We are now conscious of our actions and choosing our moves carefully.

Forest cover has been reducing in our planet at an alarming rate. This is partly due to the need for firewood and charcoal for cooking. We have lost a huge number of indigenous trees for this need.

Not only did our cooking eliminate our trees, but it also introduced air pollution into our homes. Promoting respiratory diseases amongst ourselves.

So when we bump into such innovation, its a big win to all of us. This technology will help save the remaining forest cover, and cost by the community.

How does it work?

Why We Need Trees on our Roadsides

Why We Need Trees on our Roadsides

Why We Need Trees on our Roadsides. Not only will they make our roads more appealing, but they will also be vital in curbing climate change. We all know that trees breathe in the carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Which we need for survival. Hence very important in our lives.

Benefits that comes with planting trees on the roadsides

  • Our insects which are important for food production are vanishing due to loss of habitats. These trees will be able to offer them a home and other important resources.
  • They will help reduce the cost of road maintenance. This is especially during heavy rains that cause runoff. Instead of water getting stagnated on our roads, the trees will drink it up. Promoting flood control, reduced soil erosion as well as filtering the water before it gets to the water table below.
  • The locals will be able to get jobs to maintain these trees. Hence creating employment opportunities.
  • Absorption of the greenhouse gases emissions from the vehicles. The emitted gases will be absorbed by these trees, hence reduced what amounts get to the ozone layer. With that, we can be able to reduce global warming.
  • They will provide a clean atmosphere. By offering us oxygen, we will be able to fight air pollution by the burning of fuels in vehicles.
  • A beautiful view that will promote tourism. People are attracted to beautiful things, places, etc. They will grace our roads with beauty.
  • A shade that will be helpful for travelers. When you need to stop for a few minutes, or less. You will have a shade to enjoy on the roadside. Allowing both you and the vehicle to cool down. We will also not burn from the sun through the windows.
  • Trees are also capable to reduce the noise pollution from the moving vehicles.
  • Importantly, they can be used to act as a conservation corridor. Where the trees offer habitat between the different areas on their sides.
  • With trees on our roadside, they will be no dust pollution. The soil will be firmly attached to the ground.
  • What about the strong winds that we experience sometimes. The trees will act as windbreakers.

Important to consider while selecting trees for planting on the Roadsides

Why starve Fish in Spas for Pedicure?

Why starve Fish in Spas for Pedicure?

Why starve Fish in Spas for Pedicure? Have you gone for the so-called doctor fish pedicure? Where people starve fish so that they eat dead skin from people’s feet.

Would you eat dead skin? Why would you make another living organism eat it then? Yes, they feed on dead things when food is scarce or not available. But this does not allow us to subject them to this. On top of captivating them in tanks that are not that clean.

Denying any living organism food willingly is cruel and morally not acceptable. It is against animal rights to make them suffer.

Fish Pedicure

It a cosmetic treatment where one places their feet in a tank contains fish. Which nibble the dead skin from your feet.

Garra rufa which are also known as doctor fish is the preferred fish species for this procedure.

This cruel act has spread to almost all nations on our planet. More people seem to enjoy it. But they think of the fish eating off their dead parts of their feet skin.

What harm it has on them? Or what they go through so as to offer this forced labor?

Why do humans think that everything was made to worship them? They tend to force everything for their comfort. Instead of sharing the resources gifted to us by mother nature.

Thin Line between fighting for Humans and Wildlife Justice

Thin Line between fighting for Humans and Wildlife Justice

Thin Line between fighting for Humans and Wildlife Justice. This goes to all who fight for both wildlife and humans when they crush. In courts, while making decisions, when faced with conflicts. Anything that needs one choosing to whether stands for wildlife or humans. Not necessarily, if any of them was wrong or need to be defended.

Law allows us to have a lawyer in case we find ourselves in courts

By default, we are always innocent until proven guilty. And with the ‘baddest’ lawyers, this doesn’t mean anything. You will definitely remain innocent until they work their way in your favor.

Lawyers seem not to really care if their client is guilty, but to find a way to set them free. By knowing everything about law, they will manage to use any weak links to overturn someone else who is not their client, to a fault. They are basically paid to ensure you remain innocent and avoid that jail term. Whatever happens to those who have been offended, being least of their business.

Most of the time, I wonder to myself. Would a lawyer agree to defend someone who just killed one of their loved ones? Would they still fight tooth and nail for such a client? Am sure, no amount of money will convince them to fight for a killer who just took away the life of their loved ones. In fact, they may end up on the other side of the offended and ensure such a person end up in jail for life.

But they may argue that it’s a job just like the other jobs. Serve your client, give it all your all, win cases and be a lawyer everyone wants to have in their speed dial.

But how do you deal with the idea that you may have sent an innocent person to prison, made it possible the release of a dangerous person who might repeat their actions several times afterward, just to mention a few? They do all these knowing that their good money will enable the lawyers to work hard for their freedom.

No wonder, the most awful cases attract huge sums of money. I will leave it there for you to ponder.

When Was The Last Time You Saw A Ladybird?

When Was The Last Time You Saw A Ladybird?

When Was The Last Time You Saw A Ladybird? Or Should I have asked, Do you know of ladybird? Apparently, we have some of us not lucky enough to have encountered these wonderful and colorful insects. Black and white may not be my best color. But I love them on the ladybird’s wings.

Pointing at a ladybird on a book, she requested some kids to identify which insect it was

Sadly, the kids had no idea of a ladybird. So they had no answer for her. Would you have got the correct answer for her?

Have you ever attended an event that requires kids to draw from their imagination? Or at home, have you ever requested the kids to draw something? What drawings do they draw most?

Due to developments and what they have been exposed to. Depending on where they stay. Will center around what they interact with frequently. As we continue to push nature and convert it to what we consider best. We deny these kids an opportunity to have nature and it’s content into their imaginary world.

Let’s know a little bit about them

Which is scientifically known as Coccinellidae . They belong to the same family as bottles. The little guys that create perfect rounded balls out of dung. Also known as lady beetles.

Some of them may not be necessarily black and red, but rather, yellow/orange and black.

They feed on herbivores insects, hence very important in our farms. Hence predators.

They can be found in cities, grasslands,cities, forests as well as surburbs.

Did you know that killing a ladybird was believed to be unlucky?

Forests and Insecurity

Forests and Insecurity.

Forests and Insecurity. How do they relate? Do you buy the idea that forests promote insecurity? Are trees generators of insecurity in our society?

Lately, I have seen people on social media connecting trees to insecurity. They are suggesting that planting of trees leads to security compromises. Meaning that when we plant more trees and have a forest. Then we are open to insecurities. Though they acknowledge the importance of shade provided by these trees during the day. Highway authorities tend to blame trees for poor visibility in our roads.

So, Is this to say that our Forests are dangerous?

I don’t agree with any of their accusations. This is because each and everything on our planet has pros and cons. And the pros of having trees in huge numbers, are more than our imaginary cons.

Many years ago, when my country was going through a civil arrest. And my tribe was a target, so we were being chased away / attacked by the other tribe. We had to run away from our homes. I remember when we had found a church to accommodate us for the night. My dad realized that they had not carried enough clothes to keep me and my sister warm. So my dad risked to go back and get me my coat.

It was already very late in the evening and that was the time the bad people were attacking the houses of the “unwanted” tribe. But dad had to get her girl, the coat. Just as he was about to leave our compound and head back to the church. He heard the attackers breaking our gate. He could not go back to the house to avoid being killed when they finally made it to the house. We had a very huge tree within our compound. And that tree is what saved my dad that dreadful night.

On that tree, he witnessed our shop being looted and our neighbor’s houses set on fire. This singular tree saved my dad and helped me finally get a brother a few years later.

The same tree had a bad side too. It had been used once before by robbers to hide. But they were not successful due to our brave dog.

So yes, trees pros will always surpass cons. And no one can firmly say that trees are a danger to our lives. In fact, we are the dangerous one to not only trees but all natural resources.

Tree species and selection matters
