The role of Rag-Pickers in saving the Urban environment

Rag-Pickers play a major role in saving the urban environment.None really pays any attention to contribute towards society.They collect the garbage and further segregate it.

This is a major health concern for them as it contains all sorts of germs.Due to their unawareness  and no education ,they are left with nothing but only this to do.The garbage that they collect has fine  glass pieces which many a times  injure them.

But to earn their livelihood,they have to bear all sorts of pains and injuries.They collect the house garbage and segregate the articles that can be recycled and sell them to earn their livelihood.

the remaining is disposed off.Virtually,in absence of rag-pickers,our surroundings will a  dumping ground of garbage. They are the unsung saviours of our environment.

Tail walking Dolphins

Living near Port Adelaide in Australia,is a group of blue-nosed dolphins that walk on their tails.They are not captive dolphins trained to perform to entertain people but they are wild dolphins.

The story goes that in the 1980s,Billie,a blue nose dolphin was trapped in a marine lock.She was rescued and kept in the local dolphinarium for a while,where she may have observed dolphins being trained to tail walk.

After she was returned to her home in Port Adelaide,she started teaching other dolphins to tail walk.

Motivation

Motivation is one of the most  discussed topic and the way it helps one to tackle the problems they  are going through.

Talking about motivation is not that easy because it is not easy to talk about based on who you are talking to because something that is motivating to a young child made not be the same for someone who is around 40.

People aspire for the same kind of motivation but everyone has there own source of motivation .

There are also people who are always talking about motivation but are themselves streesed in there own lives.

 

Being pumped and motivated all the time is very important to make things go better throughout ur day and my best piece advice for you can be that you can do much better than you think but the only thing you lack doing is to be patience as you have a lot of time figure out things and execute them.

People get way over excited for things that they are willing to execute but due to bad kick start and lack of motivation they  are no where to reach where they wanted to reach.

“Motivation comes from you not from others who you try to be.”-Me

Immigrants

Being an immigrant is not an easy job but if you have enough cash ,it might sometimes play the game you wanted to.Children wo are immigrants always face a lot of problems with all the cultural and societal changes they are going through.

Presently the situation of  immigrant and their life’s  have got better as people are now getting global and are adapting to a new place very easily.

But things were not as good during the time world war’s.People had to find ways to get out their land to go to other places as an immigrant,during those days  black and white discrimination was often seen among various groups of people.

Why does the lighting occur?

Lightning is an electric current.Within a thunder-cloud way up int he sky,many small bits of ice bump into each other as they move around the air.All of those collisions create an electric charge.

The positive charges or protons form at the top of the cloud and the negative charges or electrons form at the bottom of the cloud.

Lightning is a case of opportunities attracting.The negative charges in the cloud are attracted to the positive charge of the earth’s surface.

When the charges become strong enough,electricity flows from the negatively charged cloud to the positively charged surface of the Earth,creating a lightning bolt.
