Work,Happiness and Serving Humanity

These are the words of Swami Vivekananda. Please read it. This definitely helps the demotivated, the diseased, light-hearted ,hardworker , youths. Be kind to each and everyone.

This life is short. They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive. It is not the receiver that is blessed, but it is the giver. The man who asked for no return, the perfectly unselfish man, is the most successful.

It is the gratest privilege in our life that we are allowed to serve the Lord in all these shapes. Then only world awake, when hundreds of large hearted men and women, giving up all desires of enjoying the luxuries of life,will long and exert themselves to their utmost for the well being of the millions of their countrymen who are gradually sinking lower and lower in the vortex of ignorance. The easiest way to make ourselves happy is to see that others are happy. He who knows to serve knows how to rule.

It is far better to die on the field of duty, preaching the truth, than to die like worldly work. Bold words and bolder deeds are what we want. In helping the world we really help ourselves. Blessed are they whose bodies get destroyed in the services of others.

He who sees God in the poor, weak and diseased really worships God, if he sees God only in image, his worship is preliminary. Gratitude and hospitality are the peculiar characteristics of humanity. Even if you cannot give to others for want of money, surely you can at least breathe into their ears some good words or impact some good instructions. Can’t you?

Learn obedience first. Always first learn to be a servant; and then you will be fit to be a master. Stretch forth a helping hand, and open the gates of knowledge to one and all, and give the downtrodden masses their rights and privileges.

Bacterium that ‘eats’ plastic and disgrades it into harmless waste

When Belgian chemist Leo Baekeland, using phenol and formaldehyde, made a ‘synthetic thermoset’ he called it plastic in 1907.

It was welcomed as a boon to humankind. Given its malleability and the ease with which it could be moulded into solid objects, plastic made from petrochemicals was soon used to make not just buckets, pots and bottles for consumers but also became a staple raw material for a wide range of industrial goods and products.

However, while it plays an important role in our lives, a pressing concern is disposing the vast quantities of plastic that go to waste, such as plastic carring bags. Plastic materials take anything from 400 to 1000 years to degrade, and are considered toxic.

Many cities have banned the use of plastic bags. But still you will find a sea of plastic near garbage landfill near metro etc..

Worldwide, disposable plastic water bottles now general more than 50 tonnes of garbage each year. Scientists have been working on multiple ways to combat the menace. Recently, a team of Japanese researchers reported that they have found a species of bacteria that actually munches it’s way into plastics made from polythene terephthalate, or PET, which is used in disposable water bottles and blister packaging. To discover the bacteria that eats into plastic and makes it biodegradable, scientists scoured landfills to find plastic that showed signs of degradation. In laboratories, they then grow the microbes they had gathered from those plastic samples, and conducted extensive tests to see how they break down the plastic . The result are encouraging . Research is now on to discover other plastic-degrading microbes . In the near future, we may soon let loose these microbes in dumps to degrade plastic into harmless waste.

Let’s hope that it will be helpful for us. For time being we should minimise the usage of plastic and protect environment.

Green Concrete

Here’s a surprising fact: after water, concrete is the most consumed material in the world, with almost three tonnes per person used annually. Concrete, along with its key components, cement, has been used from time immemorial-the Romans has mastered the art of making it and building colossal structures with it. But modern -day production of cement is highly energy intensive, and contribution over five percent to man- made global carbon dioxide emissions.

Now a UK company is using ‘granulated slag’ – a byproduct of iron and steel manufacturing- to produce concrete without using cement called Cemfree, it boasts the same strength and durability as cement, but it is more climate friendly. It is able to produce zero-carbon concrete with much less water than usually needed. Commercial production has already begun, and it will not be long before other companies come up with similar products.

It is beneficial where there is a massive infrastructure building programme. The development of cement-free concrete will considerably help in conserving water and keeping down its emission of greenhouse gases.

Polar bears and their need for ice

According to a study, Polar bears are losing life sustaining ice, crucial for hunting, resting and breeding. As climate change pushes up in Arctic temperature, ice is melting earlier in spring and re-freezing in autumn. Total number of ice covered days is declining.

The global population of polar bears with scientific name Ursus maritimus is estimated about 25, 000. Their status on the ICUN’S Red List of endangered species is currently listed as ‘vulnurable’.

How is melting of ice effecting polar bear? Polar bears spend most of their time on sheets of frozen ocean water, which melts and recede in warmer months, and then reform in winter. When the ice melts ,the animals come ashore and survive on stored fat until it refreezes, a period that has become longer and longer. With longer iceless periods, polar bear have to swim further and further to find solid ground. The bears need sea ice for hunting as they cannot outswim seals, their preferred prey. They get around their by waiting near holes in the ice and ambushing the seals as they come up for air. Male and female bears also meet on ice sheets to mate. Changes in the sea have shown to impact polar bear abundance, productivity, body condition and distribution.

What is the cause for ice sheets to melt? With more water to navigate, Arctic shipping activities have increased, as well as opportunities for oil and gas development, further threatening the animal’s habitat. Experts say Arctic sea ice melt will, in turn contribute to sea level rise, and feed back into global warming. Ice reflects warming sunlight away, while water absorbs the heat.

What should be done to avoid further melting? Well, my suggestion is first to spread awareness about this topic. We should avoid the use of CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbon) which contribute in rising global temperature ( global warming). We should stop deforestation as the presence of abundant trees will cool down the global temperature, beside this we must prevent soil erosion. Scattering millions of tiny glass beads to reflect sunlight is also a good way. Melting glaciers add to rising sea levels, increases coastal erosion ,create more frequent and intense coastal storms like hurricanes and typhoons.
