The Masai giraffe, also spelled Maasai giraffe, or the Kilimanjaro giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi), is the largest subspecies of giraffe and the tallest land mammal. It is found in Kenya and Tanzania.

The Masai giraffe has jagged spots on its body. It also has a short tassel of hair on its tail. The bony outgrowths of the male’s skull superficially provide the appearance of up to five ossicones. The dominant male’s spots tend to be darker in color than those of other members of its herd.

Adult males usually reach around 5.5 m in height — although they have been recorded at reaching heights of up to 6 m — and females tend to be a bit shorter at around 5–5.5 m (16–18 ft) tall. Their legs and necks are both about 2 m (6 ft 7 in) long, and their heart has a mass of roughly 12 kg (26 lb).

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’

FIFA World Cup 2014 …. prior to the games!!

Brazil forcibly displaced thousands of people to make way for the World Cup

Millions of people around the world are enjoying watching the World Cup. Unfortunately, this otherwise great sports event has a terrible dark side: In order to construct the necessary facilities, the Brazilian government forcibly displaced thousands of people. This recent article by Brazilian-based architect Anthony Ling cites estimates indicating that some 250,000 people have been evicted from their homes:

Who would ever think that something as beautiful as a soccer championship could be destructive? The World Cup has become a social and public policy disaster for Brazil….

The attempt to produce a “legacy” does not only have a financial cost, but also an invaluable social cost, possibly the largest loss of all generated by the World Cup. Research done by NGOs such as ANCOP and Conectas estimates that around 250 thousand people will be evicted from their homes because of new public works related to the event.

Many of the people evicted are poor and politically weak. Although many have lived in these neighborhoods, their property rights are not recognized by the official legal system, which makes it easy to evict them with little or no compensation. This is a common problem in much of the Third World, as documented in a famous book by Peruvian libertarian economist Hernando de Soto.
