Climate change is the greatest environmental threat humanity has ever faced. It is caused by the built-up of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels and destruction of areas that store massive amounts of carbon like the world’s rainforests. In recent years, global warming has been the subject of a great deal of political controversy.
Could plants help to slow the march of global warming?
Yes! It’s possible.
Biodiversity influences climate at local, regional and global levels, yet most climate models do not take biodiversity into consideration because its variables and effects are too diverse and complex to compute. Two recent studies, however, demonstrate the importance of being able to consider the response of vegetation to elevated levels of carbon dioxide in climate models as we try to predict our climate future.

Nowadays, global business is changing at such a stunning pace, entry-level professionals barely have time to acclimate themselves to a new company, a new competitive environment, or new operational requirements. The challenges faced by young workers include lack of experience, a complex corporate world, and business education that is too theoretical and out of sync with companies’ day-to-day needs.
But business school doesn’t have to be a part of the problem; higher-learning institutions can make their degrees more engaging and hands-on by blending the traditional economic and business dogmas with real-world, practical experiences and operational challenges, which will help to prepare students for the working world.

Have you ever desired to grow your own vegetables or herbs at home but were unable to do so for lack of space? Or start a business which is profitable as well as organic? If so, hydroponic gardening could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
What is Hydroponics?
The science of soil-less gardening is called hydroponics. It basically involves growing healthy plants without the use of a traditional soil medium and by using a nutrient like a mineral rich water solution instead. A plant just needs selected nutrients, some water, and sunlight to grow. Not only do plants grow without soil, they often grow a lot better with their roots in water instead.

If any of you feel horrible for disturbing your diet and eating fatty deep fried food, don’t feel so! You are actually helping to curb climate change in a small way.
Fatty acids released into the air from cooking may contribute to the formation of clouds that cool the climate, say scientists.
Fried, fatty and utterly delicious food may have an adverse impact on your waistline, but it is defiantly assisting in reducing global warming.
A new study shows that the fatty acids released into the air while frying food may help clouds that cool the atmosphere to form.

Have you ever looked back on your life and started to realize that some of your biggest goals and dreams just vanished? Not because you didn’t care about them anymore, but because you never took that initial step to get started on pursuing them wholeheartedly. Life then just started to pass you by.
Everyone has a comfort zone, or level of risk, where they feel in control. The problem is that if you stay in that comfort zone for too long, you don’t learn and achieve new objectives.
Applying for jobs just out of college or grad school we think our ultimate goal is to find the perfect comfortable job that is a natural fit and have a long, fulfilling career there.
Forget all of that, comfort is the enemy. If things are easy, it’s time to shake up your career. Continue reading “DON’T GET TOO COMFORTABLE”
