The Earth Anthem penned by poet-diplomat Abhay K was translated into Portuguese and launched in Brasilia to commemorate World Environment Day.

Abhay had written the anthem in 2008, inspired by the Upanishads and the image of the Earth taken by the Apollo 17 crew. He penned it in Russia’s St Petersburg and so far it has been translated into 30 languages.

According to IANS, he said,

“Whichever country we come from, we all have our planet in common. A tribute to her in the form of an anthem, therefore, should be able to find favour with people from all countries. Such an anthem will not only connect all of us across the world through a common musical thread but will also inspire the next generation to put the planet before themselves.”

For his Earth Anthem, he was termed ‘inspiring’ by UNESCO, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. He has plans of continuing the the Earth Anthem project by collaborating with the world’s leading musicians and singers to create consecutive editions.

TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

Puerto Rico Loses Power …. 🇵🇷 Islandwide Again …. WTH? 🇵🇷 …. “!!

IT’S RESTORING, NOT UPDATING

My heart and soul ache for my country.

There’s so much need and so little help from the ‘owner’ of the colony.

The governance of the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A. doesn’t care.

That says a lot to me!

~BREAKING: Island of Puerto Rico Experiencing Blackout~

NowThis Facebook Video

RedLineBAguirre

Puerto Rico has experienced an islandwide blackout seven months after Hurricane María hit the island and devastated much of its infrastructure.

Every single power customer on the U.S. territory is without power, NPR’s Adrian Florido reports from San Juan.

More than 3 million people are affected. It’s the first total blackout since Hurricane María.

PREPA, Puerto Rico’s electrical utility, says a fault was detected on a transmission line between two power plants and that service will be restored gradually. It could take 24 to 36 hours for power to be restored for some customers, the utility says.

Hospitals, the island’s main airport, water pumping systems and banking centers will receive priority as PREPA works to restore service.

img_8739

This is the first complete blackout since the hurricane, but over that seven-month span, the island had never restored full service. Before this blackout began, The Associated Press says, 40,000 people in Puerto Rico still had not regained “normal electricity service.”

In February, an explosion at a power substation plunged San Juan back into darkness. Earlier this month, a tree fell on a transmission line and cut power to more than half the island’s population, as Adrian has reported:

“The accident occurred in the region of Cayey, where crews were working to restore power to people still waiting nearly seven months after Hurricane María. Increasingly, that work requires clearing away heavily forested mountainsides to gain access to the large utility poles that carry transmission lines from one mountain peak to the next. “It was during that kind of work that a tree falling toward the ground made contact with the power line instead.

~Why is it so hard for power to be restored in Puerto Rico?~

As Tim Webber reported for NPR last fall, the island is struggling with an “outdated, aboveground power grid” that has lagged behind infrastructure improvements in the rest of America.

The job of restoring power on Puerto Rico after Hurricane María is mammoth in size

And a contract held by a subsidiary of Oklahoma City-based Mammoth Energy Services involved in doing the work is getting big, too.

SILENCE …. “🤔How does Silence Affect the Brain? …. Research Data 🤔 …. “!!


Silnece

~~April 10, 2018~~ 

Science Says Silence Is Much More Important To Our Brains Than We Think

It turns out that noise pollution has been found to lead to high blood pressure and heart attacks, as well as impairing hearing and overall health.

Just as too much noise can cause stress and tension, research has found that silence has the opposite effect, releasing tension in the brain and body.

“Silence is my friend. I crave it; I need it.”

HortyRex©

Regenerated brain cells may be just a matter of silence

The brain is actively internalizing and evaluating information during silence

Silence relieves stress and tension

Silence replenishes our cognitive resources

It is possible for the brain to restore its finite cognitive resources. According to the attention restoration theory when you are in an environment with lower levels of sensory input the brain can ‘recover’ some of its cognitive abilities. In silence the brain is able to let down its sensory guard and restore some of what has been ‘lost’ through excess noise.

STEPHEN HAWKING …. “💫✨💫 Fly High, Sir …. The Universe Awaits You 💫✨💫 …. “!!


HQuiet

~~March 14, 2018~~ 

Stephen William Hawking, CH CBE FRS FRSA, (8 January 1942 – 14 March 2018), was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation.

Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.

He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirlUni

The physicist, who died Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at age 76, wasn’t expected to see his 25th birthday, after being diagnosed with the incurable neurodegenerative condition ALS at age 21.

Though Hawking beat the odds for more than five decades, the scientist told the Guardian in 2011 that death was never far from his mind.

~Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis~

ALS is a group of rare neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement. Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time.

Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt, or reverse, the progression of the disease.

Steve Irwin Family …. “Returning to Animal Planet …. ‘🐊 Dad was a SuperHero’ …. ‘Crocodile Hunter’ 🐊 …. “!!

~Steve Irwin’s family returns to Animal Planet 11 years after his Death~

No question: Animals are the Irwin family business.

That’s why we’re so excited to learn that Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin are returning to create shows and projects for Animal Planet, 11 years after the tragic death of family patriarch Steve.

According to a press release, the Irwins will be global ambassadors for Discovery Communications, which owns Animal Planet. On the channel, they will develop and produce television projects.

The youngest Irwins (Robert is 13, Bindi, 19) basically have their interest in animals and most especially crocodiles in the blood. Their parents, Steve and Terri, made footage of themselves trapping crocodiles on their honeymoon for a special that aired in Australia in 1996. “The Crocodile Hunter” became an international sensation for Animal Planet, which aired the series from 1996-2007.

Tesla Roadster …. “🚗 Rode SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket Into Space 🚗 …. Yes, it did …. “!!


img_6779

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE TESLA?

Experts predict smooth sailing – and, ultimately, salvage

The Tesla Roadster that rode SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket into space Tuesday afternoon, February 6, seems poised to overshoot its mark as company CEO Elon Musk tweeted.

Experts nonetheless predicted smooth sailing for the cherry red convertible and the spacesuit-wearing mannequin, Starman, positioned behind the wheel. Even in the asteroid belt, it seems the car is unlikely to encounter anything beyond ultraviolet radiation, cosmic rays and other highly charged particles, and the occasional micrometeroid.

Tes3

With no oxygen and no water, there’s no chance that the Roadster will rust. But given the ongoing exposure to UV light, the car’s “paint will start to fade over time just as any car does here in Phoenix in the desert,” said Dr. Jim Bell, a planetary scientist at Arizona State University and the president of the Planetary Society.

In a press conference held after the launch, Musk said he expected the car to be “out there in space for maybe millions or billions of years.” But Bell isn’t so sure. He said that at some point – perhaps 50 to 100 years from now – it will be “a juicy target for salvage,” and someone will mount a new space mission to recapture the Roadster and bring it back to Earth.
