Even though most of our planet is covered by water, we can not drink it. Desalinization attempts around the globe have been successful up to a certain point, but there is still a long way to go before the usage of salt water for ingestion by people becomes widespread.
Most of our water is gathered in reservoirs, from falling rain, or mountain runoff from melting ice. But a new study just published tells us why we've all been having an odd feeling, knowing something just isn't quite right, but being unable to put our finger on it. No, I'm not talking about the continuing debacle in Afghanistan,... Read More
This post is a continuation of one I had written this past Tuesday, entitled My Brouhaha with BrooWaha. For those of you who have not read that post, allow me to bring you up to speed.Last weekend, I happened upon a website called BrooWaha.com. The website is promoted as "Your Citizen Newspaper", enabling writers to board another vehicle in hopes of getting their words out onto the Internet. Thinking it might be a good opportunity, I submitted two pieces from my blog right away, both of which, were published.It was my third article which started this rather odd chain of events. I submitted... Read More
This article follows: Science and Religion: the real question
Must scientific and religious viewpoints collide, or can there be consistent description of the universe in which each is equally valid? To answer this question, let’s start by exploring the origin of this rivalry.
In ancient Rome, Christianity was a persecuted secret society, and it was not uncommon for emperors to turn the people against the Christians at times of trouble. But when in the year 310, General Constantine, divinely inspired to take the cross as his standard, won the battle against general Maxentius –... Read More
From Black Helicopters to Men in Black, conspiracy theories have always led man around dark corners and into empty basements. Like a constant itch in our psyche we search to soothe the mysteries that plague our minds. Questions unanswered, surrounding strange events from the bemusing Bermuda Triangle, to bizarre UFO encounters, to the surreal Illuminati and The New World Order. Although these topics have popularized many forums and internet chat rooms, there are much older, larger mysteries which have yet remained unsolved.
One of the greatest mysteries of Man’s History poses the question... Read More
After a trip to the grocery store with her father, my half African American and half Latin godchild came running into the living room in tears. She immediately crawled into my arms, and buried her head in my shoulder. I patted her back, "What's wrong sugar?" She sat up, rubbed her eyes and said, “A mean man pushed my daddy at the store, then he called him a Nickel." I looked over at her father with a puzzled look on my face. Her father reached out to console her by rubbing her back, "Daddy is alright baby, its ok. He called me a bad word but he didn't hurt me...I'm ok." She sat up with a frown... Read More
I am convinced that one of the best pleasures of coastal outings is the freedom from restraint. In this way, no one expects you to wear a tie or neatly pressed trousers when you are tramping the coastlines. In spite of that, the animals which live on the beach are purposely equipped for living on the seaside. In fact, this makes sense for us, too to bear some of the problems in mind, and to consider our own equipment very carefully. If your intention is simply to enjoy an easy day, then you’ll only want to carry an anorak of some kind in case the weather turns against you, but if you are likely... Read More
World Animals Day ("WAD") is intended as a day of celebration for anyone in the world who cares about animals. It is not restricted to any one nationality, creed, religion, political belief or ideology.
Launched in the UK on 4 October 2003, organisations, groups, animal shelters, places of worship, schools, clubs and individuals participated in what was to become an annual event and, quite simply, helped make history!
Since the official World Animal Day website was launched in 2003, the number of World Animal Day events taking place throughout the world has increased year upon... Read More
