Syria

These countries have always been in disputes. After 6 years of civil war, the condition of the country has worsened greatly. When the body of the three-year-old Alan Kurdi was found near the sea, then the whole world was aware of the condition of the children here. Relatives of two out of every three children living in the country have died in the war. 50 percent of the students living here have left the school. Neither do they have the clean water to drink, nor do primary education. In such a situation, the country comes to the top of the list of countries considered to be hell for children.

A Rohingya refugee carries his child in the Balukhali refugee camp. More than 500,000 Rohingya have fled ethnic bloodshed in Myanmar in the past month and numbers are again swelling, with Bangladesh reporting up to 5,000 civilians crossing the border each day after a brief lull in arrivals.

Rohingya people have fled Rakhine state in Myanmar

Some 370,000 Rohingya people have fled Rakhine state in Myanmar for Bangladesh since the outbreak of violence last month, with whole villages being burned down and the government accused by the UN of ethnic cleansing. Given reports of beheadings, rape and children being deliberately shot, it raises the question of why the UK government continues to train the Burmese military. Based on reports from the UN, human rights organisations and Rohingya organisations, we are witnessing human rights violations on a scale extreme even by the standards of Myanmar’s history. Before we pontificate on the actions of the Burmese military, it helps if we put our own house in order, and that means immediately suspending training the soldiers of this brutal regime.

Why people of this village is not wearing sleepers

village_1507376456

Today, we are going to tell you about a village where no one is wearing shoes. Now you should be wondering how this can happen, so let us tell you that there is a village 20 kilometers away from Madurai where people are not allowed to wear shoes and sandals. The name of this village is Kalimayan.

For years in this village, no one is wearing sandal or shoes on their feet. Even the people of this village refuse to let their children wear it. If someone accidentally wore shoes, then he is sentenced to severe punishment.

People have their own logic to not wear shoes and sandal. The people of this village have been worshiping the god of Apchachi for centuries. They believe that the god named Apchachi only protects them. It is forbidden to wear shoes and sandals inside the village boundary to demonstrate faith towards their own god.

The people of this village have been running this tradition for generations. If the people go out side from the village they take sleepers and sandal in their hands and wear them after reaching the village limits.

The unexpected silences

3

We all know what silence means. Yet how many of us have experienced it? Since pure silence is an ideal, we tend to use the term to mean something a bit less exact. We could say that a “working silence” is a relational state we consider our surroundings to be silent if they are significantly quieter than what we are used to.

Most people aren’t hankering after actual silence that is, the complete absence of sound  but something a little more complex and subtle. We want to capture something of the essence. If we interpret silence like this, then it can be found in such places as the dead of night, the solemnity of a place of worship, the middle of a cornfield or at the end of a speech before the applause.

Silence embodies a much richer place in our imagination than simply the absence of sound. It suggests something wholesome and special – reverential, sacred even a special place of stillness, calm and peace. That’s if we’re expecting it. If we’re not, sudden silence can be the opposite strange and uncomfortable. These random silences can creep into our everyday world and take on a deeper resonance, and the way we relate to them will often tell us something about ourselves.

Many listen to the radio to “keep them company” when they are alone, to relieve the boredom of driving or to add some interest while gardening or doing chores. When the radio goes unexpectedly quiet, the lack of noise can be unnerving and in some cases even ominous. These unplanned blips are known as “dead air”, and they cause much consternation among radio producers and listeners. When Radio 4 unexpectedly went down during an evening broadcast of Midweek in 2012, a tweeter wondered whether nuclear war had broken out.

Unplanned silences in live performances can be even more uncomfortable. At a recent concert the audience sat in its seats waiting for the music to start the seconds passed. The silence became palpable. Was there some problem? A creak as an audience member sat back in their chair. What was the conductor waiting for? This slightly prolonged silence had the effect of heightening the tension, so that everyone’s ears were straining for that first chord. Perhaps this was the intention of the conductor, or he might just have been listening for the perfect silence in which to start the piece.

Unmanaged silences, however, can make us acutely uneasy. This is especially the case when an actor dries up on stage. Actors report that the fear of forgetting their lines is the theme of many of their dreams. This may be because it taps into some of our deepest fears. Radio silence can suggest that the world as we know it is disintegrating. To a lesser extent, when we watch a play we agree to suspend our disbelief, so if an actor forgets their lines we are forced to quickly “re-surface” from the world that we have immersed ourselves in.

These kinds of experiences show us how powerful silence can be when we’re unable to control it. When we are confronted with it we can take note of our own response and learn from that. In a brief moment, the absence of expected noise can cut through all of our assumptions about the way our world works and throw everything into doubt. Perhaps this is because in the back of our minds we know that silence has some kind of association with the bigger aspects of life. Silence heralds transcendence, the dissolution of the ego and, ultimately, death. Learning to accept those ideas is no small task.

Risk from poisonous mercury

japan

Mercury is far more pervasive than most people realise, and we have no idea how many people are at risk. It can be found in everything from mascara and dental amalgam to thermometers and skin whitening creams – and that’s before it reaches the food chain.

There is no safe level of exposure, and everyone is at risk when mercury is released without safeguards. Children and newborn and unborn babies are most vulnerable, along with populations who eat contaminated fish. Studies have shown that children as far afield as Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia and Greenland all suffer cognitive impairment from eating fish containing mercury.

Then there are those who use mercury at work, and people who live near a source of mercury pollution, or in colder climates where the dangerous heavy metal tends to accumulate.

While we have historically been quick to use mercury, too few countries are equipped to deal with the fallout from that use. And far too few of the opportunities that could be created to bring it under control are being grasped.

That’s why the first conference of the parties to the Minamata convention, taking place this week, is so important. The convention has now been ratified by 83 countries – four this week alone – and the list is growing. It matters because with every new party there is more opportunity for the convention to ensure mercury does no more harm.

It is a chance for the world to work towards the safe handling, storage, treatment and disposal of mercury products and waste. It is the first major step towards ending mercury production and use in mining and industry. And it will make it easier to hold people to account when they break laws prohibiting mercury production and illegal disposal and dumping.

But there is still a huge gap between the provisions of the Minamata convention and current practices. The need to scale up awareness of and action on mercury is huge. The plight of more than 14 million miners exposed to mercury through its use in small-scale gold mining in more than 70 countries should be enough to prompt us to drastically reduce its use. After all, there are a number of alternatives to using mercury today, and the list is growing.

But in many countries, the fundamental issue is waste management. Mercury is still used in too many basic household or commercial items such as fluorescent lamps, or electric switches that are regularly thrown away. Some countries have no formal waste management mechanisms. Some mix it with other municipal or industrial waste in landfills or open dumping sites. And others manage it as hazardous waste in general, but without the specific handling that is necessary for mercury waste.

The scale of the challenge cannot be underestimated. For example, 90% of electronic goods are illegally dumped, which and include lead compounds, cadmium, chromium and, of course, mercury. That’s up to 50m tonnes a year – and growing fast.

Mercury’s poisonous strands touch too many aspects of too many lives. Yet, with the sole exception of the US, every nation on Earth has ratified the UN convention on the rights of the child, which obliges states to take account of the health risks from contaminated food, water and pollution. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts our right to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.

Nearly 150 national constitutions include environmental protection and more than 100 countries guarantee their citizens the right to a healthy environment.

It is our responsibility to make the Minamata convention a testimony to all who have already suffered, and a force for progress to minimise the risk for millions more.

New type of Northern Lights discovered

nort

There is a colorful light has been seen on the sky here. According to the size, color and height of these lights, their names are given. Just recently a new kind of light has been seen in the sky, which named Steve.

At midnight of September 15, 2017 in Kakawa, Albert, Canada, a new pattern of Northern Light has been discovered, which named Steve. It appears twice this year.

These lights are visible on Earth’s North and South Magnetic poles. Gas particles roam in the air near the North Pole. Here is a 6 month day and 6 months night. When the particles of these gas are illuminated by the sun during the night, colorful lights are shining in the sky. These are called Nardan Lights. Their size ranges from 20 km to 640 km.

These lights are visible in Alaska, Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Siberia, Canada and Greenland.
