Climate change, since its discovery, has been subject to a lot of research and we now understand several consequences this issue can have on human health all around the globe. To begin, there will be an increase in temperature-related deaths and illness because extremely hot and extremely cold temperatures will occur more often, and will cause many problems from heat cramps all the way up to death. The latter is especially true for the children, the elderly, the poor and the sick, who happen to be more vulnerable to the changes. The air... [+] Read more
Written by Shuaib Almosawa, Ben Hubbard and Troy Griggs, the article ‘It’s a Slow Death’: the World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis”, published in the New York Times on the 23rd of August 2017, sums up the deadly collateral consequences of a war that seems to be never ending. In Yemen, the war has been lasting since the past two years and a half. The two parties, one led by the Saudi coalition and supported militarily by the Americans, and the other one, the Houthis and their allies, both affirm that they will never give up until the other side does. With the absence of a single proper government... [+] Read more
So I ended up with a very small book, with the dimensions of around 3x5 inches and weighed approximately 1 pound, by Culpepper published in 1751 titled, “Complete and Experienced Midwife.” This book was probably used by lower-classed midwifes during the 18th century as a guide to child bearing and proper remedies for the diseases. At first glance of the book, the cover is made from leather and is probably the original cover, since the cover seems to used and scuffed with marks. Once you open the book you see that the font is really small but is very legible and it is written in English, the... [+] Read more

Also going use recent historical events as to back up my facts.
Not too long ago, Fukushima horror in 2011 revealed to the world that nuclear power is obviously profoundly dangerous. The collapse at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant was the most awful since the... [+] Read more
Hi, as a former student I might not have any relevance in the context of this website anymore. However if any teachers are interested
I stumbled upon this interesting project. Since it's a newsactivism class I believe that this setup is more user friendly, simple to apply and
most importantly interesting to read.
Hope you can make something out of this,
In order to implement management practices on cyanobacteria and their explosive production for the human benefit, one must understand their properties, behavior in natural ecosystems and the environmental conditions which support their growth. Much of this blog will provide how cyanobacteria are structured and their abilities which they possess that support their proliferation in aquatic systems as well as public health consequences.
Most cyanobacteria are aerobic photoautotrophs. Their life processes require only carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds and sunlight. The principle mode of... [+] Read more
Neil Young and his “Honor the Treaties” tour have caused much controversy and major disputes with its involvement to stop the Athabasca Oil Sands from extracting oil from the first nation reserves. Methods to extract the tar sands from the native reserves are a huge threat to problems occurring such as: fish in the water streams, greenhouse gases, and the violation of treaties. Neil Young’s movement is beneficial because it is making people aware of the major destructions that the government is making in order to profit.
To begin, studies show that toxic by-products from the tar sands... [+] Read more
