World Earth Day Today

It is World Earth Day today, a day that is celebrated on 22 April every year to address issues and create awareness among people to save the earth from choking and destruction.

The world was a peaceful place till the menace of polythene bags surfaced and started chocking earth. Despite world wide efforts, nothing could be done about choking of earth and destruction of forests to make space for expanding cities and roads and highways. The vanishing forests have changed the world temperatures altogether and the weather has seen a great drift to hotter temperatures and dust filled high winds.

No one knows for sure where we are headed. Despite the awareness, the global warming due to deforestation and use of chemicals that damage the earth atmosphere and thus the Ozone layer continues. It is a pity that nations where research is being carried out to save earth are the major culprits themselves for creating chemicals and allowing uncontrollable emissions that is destroying our earth. Scientists fear that the rising world temperatures may result ion faster depletion and melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.

The polythene bags cannot be destroyed naturally and thus are making layers over layers on the surface of earth, thus not allowing earth to breath and let it destroy in the process. We often see picnic places littered with such bags that are blown away to near water sources and pollute the water beside layering on earth.

We need to understand the menace we are freeing every day into atmosphere and on earth by littering to save earth. Countries devoid of trees and forests are at greater risk of hotter climate in days to come. Rise and join millions around the world in saving earth by participating in local save the earth programmes and impressing upon others how to save earth - it is for the future of our generations.

Talented sharp shooter blows up tip of cigarette held in mouth of friend with AK-47 without telescope in Pakistan

Recently there has been much popularity of the film American Sniper who has been taking on targets with extreme accuracy, ensuring a kill every time. He was using a state of art rifle with telescope meant for the snipers.

But this news will certainly surprise you - a raw 'sniper' or should we say a sharp shooter seems to have outnumbered an professional sniper with his AK-47 Russian built automatic and te results he produced are simply nerve breaking as his target was a cigarette held in the mouth of his friend or an apple placed on his head.

I came about this great feat of sharp shooting capability of a man in the tribal areas of Pakistan, published in the Daily Mail.

This raw sniper is seen shooting the end off his friend's cigarette using an AK-47 with jaw dropping accuracy as can be seen in the video below. Taking his position a few hundred yards away, among a mountain range in Pakistan, the shooter fires and blows off the tip of the cigarette, with his friend breaking into applause at his prowess, as can be seen in the photo above.

And as if that was not all to show his extreme firing skills. In the video, he is also seen ripping apart an apple placed on the head of his daredevil friend, who volunteered for this deadly game, just to show proof of excellent firing skills of his friend.

Now see the video below and am sure you will appreciate the volunteer more than the shooter - as his jaw or head could have been blown apart had there been any minute distraction by this raw sniper. Both have done a commendable feat of accuracy and courage:

Luxury and Technology on the move

The other day I saw a video shared at Facebook about the luxurious airplane of American presidential candidate Mr Trump - it was a feat of technology, innovation and comfort. But that was for the filthy rich people of the world.

Today I came across an equally luxurious platform - this time a bus with all the luxuries and comforts one can ever dream of. For travelers with a heavy pocket, nothing can be a better option than this huge bus that can take you around the world as if you are in a moving home.

I could explain how this white camping bus looks like from inside, but that would spoil the suspence. Just watch the video below and see for yourself how luxury looks like:

Best camper in the world? Fermi tutti, LO VOGLIO.

Plantar Fasciitis - My Achilles heel

We know what an Achilles heel is - a weakness in spite of overall strength, which can actually or potentially lead to downfall. But what is Plantar Fasciitis and why it has become my Achilles heel?

Well to start with, 'heel' is common in both. And perhaps it is the severe pain in the heel, that is what Plantar Fasciitis is, the Achilles heel was coined to show great weakness as a pain in the heel is really devastating and utterly agonizing. I did not know this till I got Plantar Fasciitis a month ago.

Initially I attributed the pain to my slippers which have a straight hard bed - but then by and by even driving became difficult as despite driving an automatic car, the accelerator pedal has to be pressed with my right foot and the heel pain continued to grow more painful. Moreover, the pain got worse in mornings when trying to stand on the feet while getting out of the bed.

Like all good pain bearers, I continued to endure it till it became difficult for me to walk or even to drive. I consulted many sites on the internet to find a remedy, and did try some 'unique' home remedies to cure my heel pain - but nothing happened. It is then my family forced me to visit the doctor and get a treatment for it.

The doctor knew well what my problem was and gave me two tablets: One to fight inflammation and other for muscle relaxation in addition to a few exercises that I could do at home and insertion of a heel pad in my shoe.

And the miracle happened right after the first day of medicine and exercises - the pain subsided to a great extent. And now I can walk comfortably without giving any sign of heel pain - my Achilles heel has gone and so the Plantar Fasciitis.

If you happen to have a heel pain, do not delay it and visit your doctor ASAP - lest you want to endure pain and then still visiting the doctor as the pain will never go away with proper treatment.

The early signs of Spring

The announcement by the met department that there would be no rains in February this year in and around Islamabad, the sun has started to get warmer with daytime temperatures rising to 20 degrees celsius.
Gazania - the African Daisy blooming

This unusual and early warmth has brought good tidings to the flower lovers as the flowers have started to surface from the spring plantation undertaken in the month of November.

While walking around our spring plantations, I could see colourful pansy, gazania flowers surfacing with roses showing their spring excitement too.

While generally the beds remain without flowers, some plants are striving to feel the warmth in the sun, though it is still February cold. 
Here is a daffodills giving flowers and hopefully soon the entire bed will blossom.

I will soon write a full post on our spring plantation, hopefully in March someday, to show the entire lot of plants and seedlings blooming in their multicoloured showcase.

A public service and safety precaution message

Using mobile phone while driving has become a norm than exception. Many a young people and old alike are seen fiddling with their cell phone keypads while driving despite cautions and heavy fines if caught. This dangerous habit has resulted in many serious and fatal accidents and still continue all over the world.

While one may save oneself from an accident, but it may become fatal for the others. 

I came across a similar near fatality case while watching this public service and safety message and thought of sharing with my viewers to take a lesson from it.

The case shown in the video is if due to carelessness of the other or even if your own, you happen to hit a powerline pole and the electric wires fall on your vehicle, you have to be very careful while abandoning the vehicle for any laxity on your part can be very fatal as it can energise the electric field and cause severe electric shock.

Watch this video below and share with others as a public safety and service measure. This may save someone's life if encountered a similar incident - or may be yours!!

Please watch carefully and remember in case of emergency

The Glass Bridge that would take your breath away

Do you suffer from Acrophobia? Well if you do not know what Acrophobia is, you may still be suffering from it. Acrophobia is an extreme or irrational fear or phobia of heights, especially when one is not particularly high up. So whether you know it or not, many people in the world do suffer from looking down from heights and have their legs trampling when looking down from a tall building or Eiffel Tower.

OK suppose, we take it that you do not suffer from  Acrophobia - but here is your acid test. Walk over this hanging glass bridge in China and you would know. Many people are simply resistant to walk over this glass bridge over a 590 feet crevice. At 948 feet, it is the longest bridge of its kind anywhere else in the world.

As they say, it is a Brave Man's bridge as people can barely make it across without freaking out. The glass is one inch thick and there is nothing below it - so if it cracks, God forbids, you are on your own to .......

Watch the video below, I came across on Facebook, and decide whether you would take a stroll over it to know if you suffer from Acrophobia - it will simply take your breath away!

Would you walk across this bridge???

Here come the solo passenger drones for you

The dreaded word drones have plagued the world for long as the military drones armed with missiles have been targeting terrorists but often killing the wrong ones and killing civilians, children and women instead.

But here comes another dimension to these machines: Now you can fly a drone all by yourself and go up to heights of 11,000 feet - a height that an ordinary cessna plane can go to.

When this happens and these passenger drones are available in the market, life will be much more busy and easy at the same time. Busy for the reason that almost everyone loves to fly but due to heavy cost of an airplane, one is kept at bay. But these low cost drone will let those with a little extra to afford one and make their lives enjoyable and easy - and fun loving too.

Watch the video below I came across on Facebook and see how these drones would revolutionise the fun of flying and life:

Passenger Drones and High-Tech Gizmos
Passenger drones, aromatic alarm clocks, throwable panoramic cameras and other gizmos from the Consumer Electronics Show.

Well, Vatican City continues to be the smallest country of the world with an area of just.44 square kilometres, perched in the Italian capital city of Rome.

Leaving aside Vatican City, which is a symbolic sovereign country, you will amazed to find nine other beautiful countries that despite being very small  in mass are considered most thriving economies of the world and favourite tourist destinations.

The video below is a run down of these top ten smallest countries of the world and one is amazed to see the sate of their development and economy, which makes some of these as the preferred tourist destinations of many.

New Year Celebrations at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, Germany

We have seen the new year celebrations the world over since the dawn of 2016 on night 31 December 2015 and 1 january 2016. Some of the fireworks were really spectacular and awe inspiring. One could not resist the aesthetics of those who designed the fireworks to welcome the new year - 2016.

Like all countries, Germany too celebrated the new year in almost all its major cities - Berlin being one of these. The venue for the new year celebrations was the famous Brandenburg Gate - the 18th-century neoclassical triumphal arch and one of the well known landmarks of Berlin. 

My son, seen in photo above (a screen shot from the video) who is studying in Kiel, Germany also took a double decker bus to Berlin on the morning of 31 December and was there at Brandenburg Gate to enjoy the show.

Words  alone cannot express the fiesta and the fireworks when the new year 2016 dawned. My son made a short video to save the event for us to see. 

Watch the video below and see the enthusiasm of the crowd which stood there for hours, some even as long as six hours to watch the new year to dawn amid a massive display of fireworks:

Stood there non-stop...for more than "6" hours just for this moment! Happy new year everybody! :)
