Important news

Hi nature lovers,

Sorry for the lack of posts. It's been so busy! It's impossible to keep up. I hope you understand that I'm not posting too much due to confidential matters. Sorry! So I THINK (I said think) that I won't be able to post for this whole month, (From today to May 26) So goodbye for this month. And I'm afraid my British cousins Donna & Ricky OR Razz Berry are not being able to come. I'm still keeping this blog open.

So, see ya.

News Bulletin

  • Canadian Forest deal at risk-
 For conservationists, the promise seems almost too good to be true — and some worry that it is. The Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement, a deal between the forestry industry and environmental groups, aims to set aside nearly 30 million hectares of northern wilderness and subject a further 42 million to strict tree-harvesting standards.

  • Carbon-rich mangroves ripe for conservation-
  Mangrove forests in tropical regions of the Indian and Pacific Oceans store more carbon than previously recognized, according to a study published today in Nature Geoscience. The findings indicate that much of the carbon in such forests is found in the surrounding soil, which is rich in organic material. Cutting down mangrove forests, which occupy less than 1% of tropical forest area, could therefore contribute up to 10% of global carbon emissions from deforestation.

News Bulletin

  • Birds that are more likely to be prey grow longer wings- It seems that the constant threat of predation could have a more subtle effect on prey animals than first thought.Female birds that are exposed to predators while they are ovulating produce smaller offspring than unexposed females, researchers have found. The chicks may be smaller, but surprisingly, their wings grow faster and longer than those of chicks from unexposed mothers — an adaptation that might make them better at avoiding predators in flight. 
  •  Journey to the mantle of the earth- On the 50th anniversary of the first attempt to drill into Earth's mantle, Damon Teagle and BenoĆ®t Ildefonse say that what was once science fiction is now possible.
That's it for this week, no juicy news.

News Bulletin

  • Nuclear Plant busted in Japan, there maybe acid rain in the following days.
  • Reforest 'Bombings'. How can we reforest areas hard to get to? Moshe Alamaro, MIT engineering student, has a great idea: aerial 'bombing' of tree seedlings in biodegradable containers that hold food and water. Dropped from planes, the seedlings in cone shaped containers would bury themselves in the ground and have enough nutrients and water to keep them growing until rains can bring their life-sustaining necessities. A single flight could plant 100,000 trees.

  •  
    Clean Water Act's 25th Birthday. According to the National Resource Development Council, while there are still incredible problems in the nation's waterways, the Clean Water Act has done incredible good: Since 1970, discharge of untreated sewage into the nation's rivers have decreased by 90%; Wetland losses in the past decade have averaged 200,000 acres a year less than in the 70's and 80's; Without the Act, more than a billion additional pounds of toxic pollutants would be added to our surface waters every year; In 1970, only about 36% of our rivers and lakes were safe for swimming, but today it's about 65%. As the NRDC said, "To all of us who ever swim in, fished in, waded in, or just gazed at a lake or river, the Clean Water Act is not merely one of the most sane and sensible federal programs ever created. It's an essential."

Wouldn't you like one of them???

Hello everyone.

Remember how I told you guys that I love animals, that's why this was a real treat for me and all other animal lovers!
I suppose just glancing at the pictures made you squeal!

Well, Lynn from Jinjerup (www.jinjerup.blogspot.com) presented us with these gloriously cute Animal Giftboxes. I just can't decide which one I love. But the four fave of mine are the froggy, the owl, the piggy and the panda

.Each box comes with a blank space at the back for writing messages. Each box also has an optional  paper bow, which I think is a really cute idea!


Jinjerup is currently having a competition where you can win a set of these cuties. I'm participating. There will be 1 winner, 1 runners up and 2 second runners up.Go to Jinjerup.com for more details.  Hurry!!! Hurry!!! Hurry!!! I know you want some of them!

Some more ADORABLE, CUTIE pictures! : )











 I simply adore these boxes:
                                                        
  •  Because they are cute. (duh!)
  • Because I love to have some company aka the big staring eyes while working on my desk
  • Because I love animals as mentioned in the ABOUT ME part.
  • Because  I like all of  Lynn's work and this is no exception.




                                                      WHICH IS YOUR CHOICE???


                                                                Hugs and kisses,

                                                            Samreen aka R.F Kid.

Trivia!

Hey Guys,
I'm sorry for not blogging, I tried to, but my computer won't let me. I just managed roughly now. Like I said, my computer has been acting sooo strangely! I'm trying to mend it. I hope it will be mended soon.

Anyway, I prepared a trivia on the subject : Nature
I bet you guys didn't know any of these things!

  • The Earth's plates move between  2-20 cm (0.75-7.75 in) per year- the rate which fingernails grow
  • From the ground, the Earth's surface may look bumpy, but if the Earth was reduced to a 1 m ball, Mt. Everest would look like a pimple no more than 0.69 mm high!
  • The Earth is not the only object which has earthquakes, the moon does too! These are called "Moonquakes".
  • The Caspian Sea was once a sea. (It is a lake now) It was cut off from the Mediterranean sea during the last Ice Age.
  • More people drown in deserts than die of thirst! When rain suddenly falls, dry river-beds can turn into gushing rivers in just a few minutes.
  • You can predict rain with a piece of seaweed- Hang it outside. If it feels sticky, rain is on the way.
  • The squirting cucumber spreads seeds by exploding under high pressure, showering seeds.
  • The most valuable fungus is the White Truffle. It is 5 times more expensive than silver!
  • The name volcano comes from "Vulcan", the Roman god of fire and metalwork.
  • Around 30 per cent of the Earth's land surface is forested.

Wasn't that a whizz? Just remember this: The more we know, the more we grow! Be sure to comment about your likes, hates, tips, tricks, ratings, bloopers and anything else. If I get enough positive responses, I'll continue trivias like this quite often on other subjects.

Hi friends,
it feels good to be back! All the examinations are finished, holiday started, and I'm back to blogging! And woah, Razz berry, you sure answered lots of questions. Thanks for taking over for the time, a very special thank you from me. And by the way, I will sure post some goodies on Christmas, just see! (Although they won't be eco friendly, some of them, I'll try my best, though. You can't get enough eco friendly stuff on Christmas, you know) In other news, thanks to these people who emailed me regarding how much they recycle:

Sara Caesar
Tyler Smith
Kai Martin

They told me how much they enjoy doing for the environment, and sent goodbyes. Oh, others who don't know my addy, here:

Handfuls!!!

OK, sorry for not posting for a while.

Here's my doings lately:

  • Exam has started, busy with studies (Algebra, anyone?)
  • So cold, I can hardly move from the quilt!
  • Helping my Mom with the household chores she's very busy lately.
So don't you think that's a lot to juggle? I'm taking a short break, which might last for two weeks, but don't worry, it will be over sooner than you think! For the time being, all comments will be checked by Razz berry, my new assistant! Oh, one more thing. This is open session, which means you can ask queries in the comments. (I mean that it works faster then the Ask Samreen page) All of them, I repeat, all of them will be replied by Razz berry.



   Until two weeks,

            Ta-ta!
