Galapagos Islands

Giant Tortoises, Animals, Panzer, Zoo

With many conservation methods occurring regarding the archipelago of the Galapagos Islands, it is getting easier for people to see and enjoy. This remote archipelago is home to a huge collection of famous wildlife known throughout the world.

Together with the concept of evolution through natural selection that Darwin developed, it is an integral scientific theory, and without conservation methods we can lose these creatures that are why we know a whole lot of what we do about how we evolved. The following are a couple of the islands’ more common inhabitants, resident on the island year round and always happy to give a photo opportunity for visiting tourists.

Galapagos Fur Seal

This species of Fur Seal is the smallest and most terrestrial of all fur seals and lives on a diet of squid, fish and octopus, with predators which include Killer Whales and sharks. The Fur Seals can usually be found in color on steep, rugged and rocky ground, spending only around 70% of the life in the water.

In reality, the Fur Seal is essentially a sea lion species with the Galapagos one even smaller than the family members. The creatures are generally smaller in size with a wider and shorter head than Sea Lions and are a dark brown to light grey color.

Sadly, the early 1980s saw the event of El Nio and this decreased the amount of Galapagos fur seals greatly – there are currently around 40,000. 20 years in the normal life span.

Finches

The islands are home to 13 species of finch which all have beaks of different size and shape. Interbreeding of the birds from various islands isn’t possible due to the distances and thus the populations on the various islands are unique. They also have different diets, finches with big sturdy beaks tend to eat nuts and finches with thin sharp beaks have a tendency to eat insects.

Many people believe these finches were collected by Darwin and were an integral part of how he developed the evolution theory that most of us know. ‘Adaptive radiation’ is what this evolutionary process was dubbed by Darwin, and this development continued until there were different species of finch.

Kayaking

Kayak, Kayaker, Water, Kayaking, Sport

Among the most popular forms of water based holidays is kayaking. Many folks love to take part in kayaking as something interesting to do on vacation and even as the focus on their vacation. Kayaking holidays come in various ways whether it’s paddling down a secluded river or travel to various destinations along the shore. It’s action that will not bore you as there’s always something new and exciting to do with a kayak. It may often be a peaceful and relaxing action as it is possible to enjoy the tranquil waters, even though there are some intense and exciting holiday vacations now available that are an experience in a lifetime.

Sea kayaking has existed for a long time but you can now kayak beside killer whales. Johnstone Strait in British Columbia, Canada is one of the numerous destinations that offer killer whale kayaking. It’s great if you love sea kayaking but need an added extra or if you would like to witness the whales in the wild. It is an unbelievable experience to view the whales playing, they maybe killer whales but they are friendly. You might be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of some of them. Kayaking holidays within this environment is truly an incredible experience.

Another kayaking vacation with animals is in the jungle were you can get a rainforest adventure. Instead of whales and bears you may see crocodiles and monkeys. Go to South America and remain in a private reserve where you can enjoy being among thousands of species you have never seen before. Staying on a private reserve means the area is well looked after, flowers and trees will be prosperous, animals will be nearby and the general safety is extremely good. Kayaking holidays such as these are not simply about kayaking with crocodiles, there is a lot more on offer. Meet with the locals and get involved with harvesting or learning about the local wildlife. Fully immerse yourself in this holiday for a fulfilled encounter. In both holidays there’ll be trained professionals to help and guide you every step of the way, take a step outside your comfort zone and enjoy the experience of your life.

Monarch Butterfly

Monarch Butterfly Migration Monarch Butter

The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is an amazing insect, which is famous for its amazing migratory habits in addition to being admired for its great beauty.

But regrettably the Monarch’s numbers have been dropping fast because of combination of climate change, habitat destruction, the use of pesticides, and the absence of foodplants for its caterpillars, which can only eat species in the Milkweed family (Asclepiadaceae). However, this implies that gardeners in almost any state where Monarchs live can help preserve the species by growing these plants that are attractive in their gardens.

Monarch’s migrate all the way from Mexico and the Southern States of North America up as far as Canada and then replicate this in a long return journey when they fly south to overwinter.

There are a number of species of Milkweed that grow both in the cooler north and in the tropical heat of the south. Female Monarchs don’t care what the type is just as long as it is an Asclepias it’ll do fine as somewhere to put its eggs and feed its striped caterpillars.

Milkweed will grow well in large flowerpots or in large windowboxes if you’ve got no access to a suitable garden, and, of course, that the foodplant could be grown in containers on a roof-garden or balcony.

Fortunately, in response to a growing awareness of the plight of the beautiful but endangered insect, millions of people are doing what they can to help and there are now very many sites which could be easily found by searching online that will provide Milkweed seeds. Some of these sites also provide small ready-germinated plants, and others have a wide variety of Milkweed species to choose from. There are even websites that supply seeds at no cost as long as you send a SASE.

Monarch caterpillars are extremely greedy and eat a whole lot of leaves. They will even consume the flowers and seed pods, although fortunately the plants will often sprout again. The more Milkweed plants you grow the more caterpillars you will have the ability to support.

To watch the phases of the Monarch’s lifecycle is a superb experience as you find the colourful striped caterpillars eventually change into jade-green chrysalises before their final transformation to the glorious winged adult. Before they hatch another real miracle happens because the red and black of the newly-formed wings get stronger and stronger in colour and can be seen clearly through the transparent wing instances of the chrysalis.

To see this happen in your own garden brings a real sense of having done something positive to help one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creatures to survive. In case you have plenty of flowers growing the odds are that the adult Monarchs will stay a while too. If they do, it’s as if they are saying thank you!

Need To Know Before Determining Your Tattoo

Tattoo, Legs, Woman, Female, Skin

So, you finally decided to receive your first tattoo, and you can hardly contain your excitement. The sole issue you have is understanding just what the numbers will be when it comes to determining overall tattoo cost. It’s here perhaps that a lot of people find themselves losing a little of the original excitement of having their first tattoo, but this waning may be a little too premature.

The fact remains that unless you are intimately familiar with the scale of pricing at a particular tattoo parlor, you really can’t determine what the cost of your tattoo might be. First impressions about this conundrum are somewhat disconcerting. How often do you opt to purchase something with no idea of how much it will cost? Moreover, since this is a first tattoo, where do you begin?

Layout – If you’re going with a traditional design that is right off the wall, you are probably not looking at a pricey tattoo. But if you decide to have a custom design made for you, the purchase price will most certainly go up. Ditto on the size and its impact on price, too.

Complexity – No doubt that any design that is simple will mean less work for the artist, which translates into less cost. But if you’ve got something epic in mind, be prepared for higher price.

To Color or Not To Color – In exactly the same vein of complexity, if you choose to include color into your tattoo, you’re adding another dimension of labor into the mix, and you’re tapping into the artist’s resources.

Placement – A tattoo on your chest may just differ in cost from one that has been placed over your rib cage. Therefore, inking your knuckles and toes may also differ in cost from something being emblazoned across your shoulder blades.

Do Not Make A Concession – Getting a tattoo from a great artist is more than only a status symbol among the inked masses. It means you really value the quality and workmanship of the artist enough to save up your money for his or her services. You could always go with an artist that meets your budget which does a fantastic job, but there is no reason you couldn’t save up a little more to really get the ideal person for your job.

Tattoo cost should not be something that dampens the excitement you have for getting a tattoo. Whether it’s your first piece of body art or another in a long streak of committed pieces, you are making a cost to showcase you. That said, be a proactive consumer and see tattoo parlors to get an idea of the costs you may be looking at. If you have a chance, get to know the artists as well. You may find that being comfortable with your environment and the artist working with you may supersede your original misgivings about what you’re paying.

Potato Chips

Snack, Snacking, Potatoe, Food, Bowl

In the mid 1960s, there was a television commercial extolling the gold, crunchy goodness of potato chips. Its catch phrase was”I bet you can’t eat just one!” A small nibble off the edge of a potato chip, regardless of what your good intentions, led in the nibble into a normal size bite. Without thinking, you’d eaten the entire chip in a blink of an eye. You thought to yourself, another processor can not hurt. Nor the next one, nor the one after that. What was happening?! Good heavens! Were you turning into a potato chip junkie?

Let us shed some light on the roots of this crunchy treat.

In the mid 1850s, skillet was an accepted and popular type of American cooking. They were not eaten with the fingers but instead, served with a fork, to be consumed in a genteel manner. Restaurants across the country were serving fried potatoes, but it was only when the chef at Moon Lake Lodge in Saratoga Springs, New York, sliced the potato pieces so sparse did they become the rage.

It’s generally thought by food historians that George Crum was the inventor of the potato chip. He was a colorful personality in the Saratoga Springs area. A former guide in the Adirondacks, he came from a racially mixed background; he was part Indian and part African-American.

As mentioned earlier, fried potatoes were a popular fare. Crum made another batch, cut thinner than before and also fried, but these, too, were also rejected as being too thick. By this time, Crum was more than aggravated and in a fit of pique, took it upon himself to rile the guest by making him French fries that were much too thin and crisp to be skewered by a fork.

His “revenge” backfired on him. The fussy diner was ecstatic about the paper-thin potatoes and other guests requested Crum’s potatoes for themselves. Crum initially called his bite”Potato Crunches” but the dish, now a house specialty, was listed on the menu as”Saratoga Chips.” Shortly thereafter, they were packaged and sold, at first locally, but rapidly grew in popularity throughout the New England region.

In 1860, Crum opened his own restaurant which featured his processors as the house specialty. He put baskets of the chips on each table and they became an essential drawing point to the success of his restaurant. Other than advertising the chips, Crum foolishly did not patent or protect his invention.

Peeling and slicing potatoes was dull and slow. The 1920s invention of the mechanical potato peeler caused the potato chip industry to skyrocket from being a little specialty item to a top-selling snack meals.

Potato chips were chiefly a Northern dinner dish for several decades after their creation. But, in the 1920s, merchandizing and distribution of the snack took a turn for the better; their popularity growing year by year throughout the entire 20th century.

In the 1920s, Herman Lay, a traveling salesman working the Southern region of the country, was a major catalyst in popularizing the chips from Atlanta to Tennessee. He peddled Crum’s invention to Southern grocers straight from the trunk of his car, his name and company eventually becoming synonymous with this crisp and salty treat. In 1932, he purchased a potato chip factory in Atlanta. 1938 marked the beginning of Lay’s Brand Potato Chips.

The early part of the 20th century caused several companies building large factories for the mass production of potato chips. The 1920s gave birth of three companies which specify the potato chip market.

Earl Wise, Sr., of the Wise Delicatessen Company in Berwick, Pennsylvania, had too many potatoes. In 1921, he utilized the extras to make potato chips and sold them in brown paper bags as Wise Potato Chips through the delicatessen.

Salie made the chips which were marketed and sold by her husband Bill, and were called Hanover Home Brand Potato Chips. Salie was able to turn out about 50 pounds of potato chips per hour, using hand-operated equipment, in a little summer house behind their dwelling.

1926 was notable for potato chip supply. Until then, potato chips were kept in bulk in cracker barrels or glass display cases. Paper was not very practical, as oil in the chips could seep through the sacks and onto the consumer’s hands.

Laura Scudder had a household chip company in Monterey Park, California. She knew the inherent flaw in the paper sacks; no one enjoyed being covered with cooking oil. Her motivated solution for this problem was brilliant. When her girls employees went home at night, carrying sheets of waxed paper, they hand-ironed them into bags (the original Baggie(TM)?) . The following day, the employees hand-filled chips into the waxed paper bags and then sealed them with a warm iron. Voila! Greaseproof bags, ready to be delivered to retailers.

Potato chips are now the favorite snack of Americans, who eat more potato chips than any other people on earth.

In colonial times, New Englanders considered potatoes to be perfect as pig fodder. They believed that ingesting these tubers shortened a person’s life expectancy. The New Englanders were not concerned that potatoes were fried in fat and covered with salt (every cardiologist’s bane); they had much more worry about pleasures of the flesh. They believed the potato, in its pristine condition, contained an aphrodisiac that led to actions and behaviour felt to be detrimental to long life; based on those spirits, eating an unadulterated potato resulted in the demon SEX and needless to say, sex resulted in the downfall of man. For over a century, we have known this to be not true and just caused by misdirected thinking.

Mass potato chip manufacturing, in modern facilities, uses continuous fryers or flash frying. Shockingly, some potato chips are made from reconstituted potato flakes (yuck!) In place of raw potato slices.

I bet you can’t eat just one…

Written Properly And Edited Often

I have a question for you.

This is important because I believe the way you answer this question could alter the balance of your life: When the time comes to leave Critter Control this place, will you be able to look back on your past with fondness, gratitude, and gratification instead of regret and guilt? I invite you to take a deep breath and simply sit with this question for a minute… marinade in the basis of its profound implications; let yourself truly feel the reality of your last day on the planet for there lies the most precious gift.

I know from experience as this is a practice I indulge from time to time. I remember over two decades ago losing my father to complications resulting from type II diabetes. I recall the day of his burial and his coffin being lowered into the ground as though it had been only yesterday.

There was a final ending to his time here that not only touched my family, but echoed throughout my entire life in the months and years ahead. Do not waste another moment because you too will return to dust daily.”

Since then, I made a vow to live , to be of service to others, to enrich my life and explore my potential so as to direct others to wake up. The journey was difficult, stressful and daring; I have discovered more about myself in the following years than I did leading up to my dad’s passing. It was like I had been jolted with a reminder that this beautiful journey known as life must inevitably end, sometimes when we least expect it.

Now, my next question for you: Can you associate?

There’s a delightful parable told by the late Jesuit priest and psychotherapist Anthony de Mello that captures the Importance of embracing life completely:

Before the visitor stumbled upon discipleship, he wanted assurance from the Master:

“Can you teach me the objective of human life?”

“I cannot.”

“Or at least its significance?”

“I can’t.”

“I cannot.”

The visitor walked away in scorn.

The disciples were dismayed that their Master was shown up in a bad light.

Said the Master soothingly:”Of what use is it to comprehend life’s nature and life’s meaning when you have never tasted it? I’d rather you ate your pudding than speculated on it.”

Anthony de Mello’s fable reminds us, it is of little use to intellectualize life at the level of your thoughts. Life is to be lived fully, meaning you will experience suffering and pain, however as the adage goes:”This too shall pass.”

In these moments, the experience might be too much to bear. But since the former English Prime Minister Winston Churchill once announced:”If you’re going through hell, keep going.” He knew too well that if you’re in the grips of despair, to retreat is to deny yourself the capacity to overcome your pain and discomfort. Sorrow and misery aren’t the story of your own life story, but one chapter of it. There will be a number of chapters to come and you mustn’t consider your challenges as permanent.

Whilst you may have regrets, remember they are paragraphs contained within the story still being written. What you’re experiencing is not the end of the world because there is so much more to your life’s story to unfold in the years ahead.

What Is Your Soul’s Narrative?

Many folks miss the signs since they’re too busy moving from one thing to another to notice them. They are rarely present and engaged with the now to detect what’s taking place under the surface of their lives. This is since they’re concerned how their lives look to others, that they don’t notice their interior life is slowly crumbling.

In many ways, they’ve forgotten the way to come home to themselves. There’ll come a point when those you love will stand at the edge of your interment, looking down upon you as you are lowered into the floor. They’ll contemplate the exact ideas as I did that day in my dad’s burial.

“Is this it?”

“Surely there’s more to life than this?”

For the most precious gift which you can give to yourself is to deal with each day as though it were you last. Live fully and completely, knowing when the time comes, you may have been completely consumed like a sponge wringed of water. May your life’s story be a compelling narrative lived truthfully.

Tips for Keeping Your Home and Property Secure

Monitoring Safety Surveillance The Police

Our first tip will cost just a bit of money, but it’s worth it. Ensure you have a deadlock fitted in your external doors. A deadlock requires a key to rotate the cylinder and it’s quite different from a spring loaded lock that’s much less secure. Call a locksmith and get this attended too straight away.
2) Consider restricted keys
Next time you need a new lock fitted. Make sure your new lock as a limited key. In essence this means that your key cannot be easily copied. The keys are optimized and can only be copied by an authorised agent of the lock manufacturer.

3) Secure that Ladder
If you maintain a ladder in the backyard, you could be making it a simpler for a burglar to access an open upstairs window. Get a solid lock and chain and either attach it to something fixed, or chain it to a heavy weight or perhaps to a bike. This will make it very difficult to use unless you have the key.

When you go off on vacation, or are away from home, use timers for security. Set up at least three timers in different rooms of the home to turn on and off lights and a radio throughout the day and evening. This will make it look as though someone’s at home and should help deter burglars.
5) Wireless Videos Cameras
You can purchase small wireless video cameras really cheaply nowadays, and being wireless, they are quite easy to install. They generally have a variety of around 30 yards and can transmit an image to your TV or recorder. The fact that they are there will deter many thieves and the will of course allow you to monitor activity around Your House

But the more unusual your car is, the less likely it is to me stolen. If you put decorative stickers or other adornments in your automobile which make it non-standard, the more likely you are to avoid it being stolen
7) Don’t forget the shed
If you store things in the shed (as the majority of us do) like bicycles, lawnmowers and tools, here’s a great tip. Get a chain and padlock and shackle larger items together. It’s quite difficult to steal a bicycle if it’s a lawnmower attached to it!

3 Coaches

Basketball Spalding Ball Sport Game Round

Coaching to me is more of a fire then work. Some of these coaches are Gregg Popovich, Steve Kerr, and John Calipari. As I said there are a number of coaches in the game of basketball that I admire, but these three trainers methods and styles stand out to me the most. These coaches, and me, treat coaching basketball for a passion rather than a job.

Gregg Popovich, the current head coach for the San Antonio Spurs, has been training for over 20 years and is one of the most experienced coaches in the NBA to this day. Popovich is notorious for recruiting young players to his team in hopes of earning his players play with poise and precision on the court. Popovich’s 5 distinct pillars of coaching are some thing that I model my training strategies on. These five pillars are belief in his group, battle management, involvement, focus and team building.

Steve Kerr, current head coach of the Golden State Warriors, knows a thing or two about leadership and winning. Kerr has also led the Golden State Warriors to 2 championships at the 2014-15 season and the 2016-17 season. Kerr’s style of training is based on letting his player take control of leading the team. He believes that his duty as coach is to prepare and guide them in training and when it comes game time, they need to be ready and ready as a way to help one another as staff undergo conflicts they may face, with as little help as possible from Kerr himself.

John Calipari, current head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats college basketball team, has been training from 1988 and currently coaches till this day. Calipari is most famous for his years at Kentucky, leading the Wildcats to numerous championship titles and NCAA tournament appearances. There are a lot of factors that lead to Calipari’s achievement as a coach but the one factor that stands out the most would be his team building philosophy. This philosophy is made up of recruiting the majority of the top prospects in the country to come to Kentucky to perform. Also, his ability to put trust in his freshman players by giving them leadership roles on the group allows them to be better leaders on and off the court. Calipari lets his players natural talent decide the role they’ll have on the group.

Blue

With VE Day, in the beginning of May, and Memorial Day at the end of May, red, white, and blue are the colours of May. They can guide you in your writing as well.

Read… What have you read lately? If you’re trying to write, it is wise to read. In the words of Stephen King:”If you don’t have enough time to read, you do not have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” Read inside your genre to discover what makes it tick. Read the classics to find out what generates staying power. Read widely and read frequently. You may write historical fiction, but scifi could still teach you an interesting lesson about effective dialogue. Or, you could write spy thrillers, but reading a love might help you learn about the nuances of nonverbal communication.

Write… Write, even if it’s a paragraph. Once you write something, the rest will follow. In the words of Chinese philosophy,”A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. The more that you write, the easier the words will flow.

How does this use? Write something that’s true. Am I suggesting that you only write nonfiction? But, research and writing wisdom have shown that if it is possible to insert truth into your writing, the reader will have the ability to connect better. In the words of Ernest Hemingway:”All you need to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”

If you keep things too general or vague, it’s more difficult to establish a connection. Yes, they probably never fought in battle in WWII or painted a Renaissance portrait, but they may very well understand the smell of wood smoke on a winter’s day or the crunch of leaves when walking through the forest. And, obviously, if you also write historical fiction like I do, your writing will demand much research and truth.

Giants Built the Pyramid of Giza

Louvre Pyramid Paris Architecture Tourism

I was recently asked if the Giants who helped to build the pyramid of Giza has exactly the exact same DNA as human beings. What’s the arrangement of the double helix? In the questions it became clear that the concept of the forces of animism that take on forms is yet to sit well with many people. But the issue of DNA I will manage in another article.

Anyone who has read my posts on The Pyramid of Giza and The Gods of Our Ancestors will have a better appreciation of what I am going to explain. And it is important to know that these thoughts aren’t mine, and that they derive from my comprehension of the job In The Light Of Truth The Grail Message, a book written by a German writer, Oscar Ernst Bernhardt who wrote under the pen name, Abd-ru-shin.

It’s only necessary to add that myths are the realities that we lost in the intellectual cupboard we locked ourselves in. So when we are told of an Atlas that stood on mount Atlas and held the skies, we are actually dealing with a depiction of the fact of a giant called Atlas, who resides on mount Atlas, also gave its name to the mountain.In reality, many mountains have a number of these giants inhabiting them.

Their strides, race and actions result in destructive motion of air. They uproot trees and carry water to flood planes.

A different species trigger earthquakes and volcanoes. They work in coordinated manner, such that those that form volcanoes function as preparers for major earthquakes and earth sinking, as they did at the sinking of Atlantis. I clarified this in the article, The Sinking of Atlantis. They are still the same which will cause the sinking of parts of Japan and much of Europe, which will be counter balanced by the increase of Atlantis at the center of the Atlantic Ocean.

They are the ones who helped the Incas to build the temple that was one of the most expensive in the world, since many parts of the temple and artifacts inside are in solid gold. They were also the people who sank it under water. Now, its memories are in mythology as a mysterious temple in the bottom of a lake which, for current security reasons, I may not name. The giants will one day increase the temple when a universal earthquake strikes the earth, Atlantis rises, and many other political upheavals follow. Afterward, a new teaching will gain power with the force of a hurricane.

The time is near when all men’s heart will be gripped with fear, once the great wonder appears in heaven.

American Health Care Trends

Medic Hospital Laboratory Medical Health D

The Current AMA Executive Summary”Health in the United States: Health Care Trends” Comprises both a little hope and a lot of gloom.

Population Trends

By 2050 the segment of the population over 65 will double from today to 83.7 million. It follows that the prevalence of chronic illness will rise dramatically. Since 1990, smoking has decreased from 29.5percent to 18.1% of the adult population. Probably as a consequence, stroke has declined 34 percent, heart disease 27%, and cancer 17%. This sounds good but…

Fat and Sluggish

Since 1990, the obesity rate in adults (defined as BMI over 30) has increased from 12% to 29.6%. During the exact same time diabetes increased from 4.4% to 10% of adults. Not old adults, all adults. The CDC predicts that by 2050, thirty percent of adults will have diabetes. As a result, obesity is now the leading cause of heart attacks. Physical inactivity is a significant reason. Only 21 percent of adults get the US Department of Health and Human Services recommended 150 minutes of exercise each week. Many employers now offer wellness programs that give financial rewards for healthy behaviours. This could be a significant step in the right direction. Of course, punitive actions denying health insurance to the morbidly obese or uncontrolled diabetics could also be coming, particularly if the federal government leaves the medical insurance business to private businesses.

Is There a Doctor in the Zip Code?

The AMA reports that primary care doctors are closing their practices and either retiring early or moving to non-clinical areas like insurance, quality management, the pharmaceutical industry as well as medical informatics. Since the demand for health services will increase dramatically, a growing percentage of primary care will be provided by PAs and Nurse Practitioners. I expect they’ve increasing independence. This isn’t always a bad thing, a number of these caregivers are excellent and offer compassionate and comprehensive care. A potential byproduct of this trend may be an increase in demand for referrals and subspecialty care, like sending diabetics to endocrinologists and COPD patients to Greenacres Bat Removal.

A dystopian future looms where the cost of health care is greater than our resources can handle. In this rather terrifying situation, someone might need to be refused services, likely either the powerless or people who refuse to embrace mandatory health guidelines. It hasn’t come to that yet. We still have time to make recommended changes in diet and activity. Remember, who could have predicted everyone would stop smoking?
