Arecibo Observatory …. Fifty three years ago …. officially opened …. “!!


~~November 2, 2016~~ 


Fifty three years ago yesterday 

A big celebration.

Something to be very proud of.

I’ve been there!

It’s impressive, amazing and incredible.

After climbing countless steps, you reach the top and marvel at the massive structure in front of your eyes.

Once you see it, you don’t forget.

It’s in my country!




The Arecibo Observatory is a radio telescope in the municipality of Arecibo, Puerto Rico. This observatory is operated by SRI International, USRA and UMET, under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The observatory is the sole facility of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), which refers to the observatory, and the staff that operates it. From its construction in the 1960’s until 2011, the observatory was managed by Cornell University.

The observatory’s 1,000-foot (305-metre) radio telescope was the largest single-aperture telescope from its completion in 1963 until July 2016 when the Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope was completed. It is used in three major areas of research: radio astronomy, atmospheric science, and radar astronomy. Scientists who want to use the observatory submit proposals that are evaluated by an independent scientific board.

~~October 6, 2016~~ 


At the time of this writing, the morning is gray, overcast and rain is scant.

So far, only drizzling.

There’s an ominous feeling in the atmosphere, almost chilling.

I don’t know how long I’ll be able to post.

Will return to usual ‘programming‘ hopefully Saturday morning.

It will all depend on the effects of this massive hurricane.

I’ve been through several of them before.

Believe you me, it’s not a fun experience.

The worst of the storm, in my area, is expected to start this afternoon around 5 PM.

The peak is expected around 2 AM.

By Friday afternoon, hopefully, it should be gone, continuing the trek up north.

I will return as soon as conditions permit.

Hurricane Matthew is set to deliver a devastating blow to eastern Florida starting Thursday night,October 6, will hammer areas farther north up the coast in Georgia and the Carolinas Friday into the weekend.

An important point to make is that landfall does NOT need to take place for the worst impacts to come ashore. The strongest winds and most drilling surge will come to the coast in the eyewall, which surrounds the eye.

Landfall occurs when the calmest portion of the eye, or the center, comes ashore. Hurricane conditions will come ashore even if the center stays 20 to 30 miles offshore.



Timing For Matthew

Life-Threatening Storm Surge, Battering Waves, Major Beach Erosion

Damaging Hurricane-Force Winds Likely

Rainfall Flooding, Tornadoes

Matthew’s to Eventually Make a Loop Off the Southeast Coast?

Something to think about …. “Am I Worth Saving? …. What Say You?”!!


~~March 2, 2016~~ 


The atmosphere of the Earth has a different composition from that of other planets in part due to the biochemical reactions of Earth’s organisms.

Trees and plankton play a big role in this. You’ve probably heard that trees produce oxygen, but have you ever wondered how much oxygen that is? You’ll hear a range of numbers and ways of presenting them because the amount of oxygen produced by a tree depends on the species of tree, its age, its health, and also on the tree’s surroundings. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, “a mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year.”

Here are some other quoted figures regarding the amount of oxygen produced by a tree:

“A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs/year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.”

~McAliney, Mike. Arguments for Land Conservation~

Documentation and Information Sources for Land Resources Protection, Trust for Public Land, Sacramento, CA, December, 1993


“One acre of trees annually consumes the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that produced by driving an average car for 26,000 miles. That same acre of trees also produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year.”

~~New York Times~~


“A 100-ft tree, 18″ diameter at its base, produces 6,000 pounds of oxygen.”

Something to think about …. “It’s borrowed”!!


~~March 26, 2015~~ 

It seems that the older generation has lost its way as far as protecting our Earth, our Home, our Planet. It’s not ours. It belongs to our children. They have taken in upon themselves to start protecting Planet Earth and its resources. 

We are only the guardians. 


Earth Guardians is an organization of dedicated youth from around the world. We are committed to standing up to protect the Earth, Water, Air and Atmosphere so our generation, and those to follow, inherit a healthy, just and sustainable planet. We are focusing on weaving together the synergy of individual grassroots youth driven projects around the globe, to create one international, intergenerational movement for effective change.

~Earth Guardians~

Historic Journey

We have had the opportunity to participate, inspire, speak, present and perform at conferences, festivals, rallies, schools and colleges around the world. The Earth Guardians movement is growing across the globe.
