Longest Lunar Eclipse Will Be Taking Part On July 26…As a Blood Moon

Longest Lunar Eclipse Will Be Taking Part On July 26...As a Blood Moon

If things couldn’t get any worse.

The longest lunar eclipse of the century will take part on July 27, lasting almost two-hours. Furthermore, the Eclipse will rise upon the distant skies and be visible to those living in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia, as a Blood Moon. However, the bazaar Blood Moon won’t be of sight to those living in North America—in places such as Canada and the United States. Stargazers, moreover, who live in the United Kingdom have the pleasure of witnessing this event, as it will be rising over the horizon in Earth’s shadow around 8:50 PM (BST), over London. The next time this event will rise over the horizon will be in the next eighty-two-years.

The exact times for which the Blood Moon will appear might vary by a few minutes between specific locations.

According to Dr. Noah Petro of the Goddard Space Flight Center, he stated that the Moon can “either graze through the cone, or go right through the middle. That gets a longer-duration eclipse.” He further stated, “This time, the moon is passing closer to the centre of that cone, and it’s therefore a little bit longer than the eclipse we had back in January. The moon can either graze through the cone, or go right through the middle.”

And this is just the beginning. The moon will be at its farthest orbital point from Earth. This meaning that it will take slightly longer to escape the umbra.

Certainly, this Lunar Eclipse will be splendid to all stargazers from Europe, to South America, stated to the fact that it’s not only a Lunar Eclipse, or that it’s the longest of the century, but of its hot, deep red colour—which will be a baffling event to watch, lasting one hour, forty-three minutes.

30 Years Later: When Global Warming First Headlined News Around The World

30 Years Later: When Global Warming First Headlined News Around the World

Sometimes, it feels as if the eighties were only ten-years ago; where the music was alive and the fashion was bolder than that of today’s cat walks. But of deeper, darker parts of the eighties that made the decade shrivel in fear and curiosity made the eighties sort of like a love-hate relationship between two friends. There was the Space Shuttle Challenger, which exploded shortly after lift-off. There was the murder of singer, songwriter, former Beatle John Lennon. The AIDS Virus was recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. President Ronald Reagan announced defense plan called “Star Wars.” Michael Jackson thrilled us all with “Thriller.” Two bodyguards assassinated Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. And then there was the time where Global Warming, in 1988 – not known to many then – broke the news around the world, where, at first, a tinkle of news coverage from around the world covered basic hypothesis that carbon dioxide emitted by fuel burning could warm the planet’s climate, with record heat and fires from the Amazon rain forest to Yellowstone National Park.

At first, of course, the global concerns about deforestation, acid rain, and damage to the ozone layer (from certain synthetic chemicals), global warming went from being an esoteric news item, to appearing on the front pages of newspapers, as well as the leading headlines on major news networks. James Hansen (1941), a NASA climate scientist, on June 23, told a US Senate committee that “human-produced greenhouse gases were measurably heating the climate.”

During that summer, scientists and diplomats gathered in Canada for the Toronto Conference On The Changing Atmosphere. They had recommended that global reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions; and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was formed that year, under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) to advise the world’s nations on climate risks and responses.

And yet, exactly 30 years later, our world is still under the pressure of climate change; and we often wonder: will it ever end?

Fast Food Giant KFC Planning to Serve “Veggie-Chicken” By Next Year

 

KFC, one of the most famous fast food chains on earth, are preparing to fry a brand new set on their menus in the UK – and this time it’s vegan!

 

As the Brits enroll in a completely new diet without animal products, Fast Food chains like Pizza Hut and McDonald’s buckle up for “brand-new” customers in the United Kingdom.

Now KFC decided to jump on the wagon for a little stroll down vegan lane.

 

The fast food giant – apart from Subway, McDonald’s and Burger King – plans to roll out their new item in their restaurants, possibly by next year. However, KFC assures fast food eaters that the fake/imitation-meat will still be coated in Colonel Sanders’s famous seasonings, containing 11 herbs and spices.

 

According to a study by NHS stats, more than one in four adults in the UK are obese. Due to this study, KFC plans to cut calories by a sum of 20%, per serving over the next 7 to 8 years. A Big Daddy Meal from KFC has 1,430 calories; more than 60% of a male adult’s recommended daily intake of calories; and 80% for a female adult.

The chain stated that the new item will be offering “the great taste of KFC to new and existing customers who are changing their dining habits.”

Also, KFC insists the new veggie chicken will be healthier to that of their other items on the menu, for which aren’t vegetarian.

 

As of yet, however, KFC has not given any details on the calorie range of their new item. And if they don’t, we’ll just have to find out ourselves.

The Health Benefits of Organic Gardening

Introduction

Organic Gardening refers to growing vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and seeds, using only natural means – no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides or other poisonous chemicals or fertilizers are used in the process of growing foods organically.

Instead of using hazardous chemicals or fertilizers, the soil is tilled and prepared using gathered mulch, composted manure, or food and leaf remains.

Furthermore, the plants are sprouted and grown with the aid of the sun, water, minerals from compost companion planting, and your own touch of love.

However, those who harness foods organically grow them according to a sustainable perspective.

According to a study released by the Centre for Disease Control on March 2001, accumulations of toxic chemicals in our bodies likely have lethal health effects.

 

The Benefits

The benefits of organic gardening span many aspects of our lives – socially, physically and mentally.

  • Physically: Growing a garden gives one an opportunity for being outdoors, surrounded by living things, and also the breath of fresh air. People benefit from fresh air and water, beautiful surroundings, open space, and so on, and so forth. In addition, moreover, the physical work of tilling soil and growing plants increases our blood flow, improves our health and well-being, and uses our muscles. Due to it being organic, there is a lessened risk of contamination from toxic chemicals. Plus, why consume fruits and vegetables at your local grocery store, if you can consume your own?
  • Socially: Growing gardens brings people together, connects one with nature, gives the gardener a shared sense of purpose and fulfillment, and encourages healthy social interaction.
  • Mentally: Organic gardening offers a deep satisfaction in knowing that one is helping to turn tides back in favor of a healthy earth (including the well-being of animals, plants, and people.)

 

What Now?

If your household is plant-friendly, consider on growing a few pots of the following vegetables or flowers in your living room, bedroom, or both:

  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Peace Lilies
  • Palms
  • Pothos Plants

Plants in the above list can clean the air of your household.

 

What If I Don’t Want to Spend Time Gardening,

But Still Want to Consume an Organically-Grown Vegetable or Fruit?

If you would rather not grow plants, vegetables and fruits, you can purchase your food from a local organic farmers market, or CSA’s (Community Supported Farms.) It is recommended that you take a non-negotiable decision to only eat organic foods and use organic products for your health. Supporting an organic lifestyle can be as simple as eating foods grown organically without any chemicals. It can also be as vast as adapting your entire yard and home into a space for wildlife conservation and dissemination.

 

 

Closing Statement

You can make sustainable choices in day-to-day life, such as using canvas rather than plastic bags, using glass rather than plastic, bulk rather than packaged, and many other ways. In order to live a peaceful and healthful life, you must be as healthy as possible by eating a proper and balanced diet, exercising, organic gardening, and going vegan.
