Things People are Talking About and Why We Should Listen

fence

This year, there are many issues that have been hot topics of conversations in different corners of the world. Here are some of them as well as a glimpse into some of the reasons why we need to pay more attention.

Environment and Climate Change

The recent news about the Giant Pandas no longer being endangered was a cause for celebration not just for conservationists but for everyone. This bit of good news was welcome news, especially with the constant reminders that there is more work to be done. Even as Giant Pandas increased, the Great Apes are on the brink of extinction according to a conservation group. The UN also announced a few months ago that this year is right on track to be the hottest one yet on record. And these are just some of the problems that highlight the need for sustainable action to protect the environment and natural resources.

Social Justice

There have been inroads on the issue of social justice over the years. But there is more to be done to address genuine change that would impact people’s lives around the world. Issues about gender equality, racism, unequal wealth distribution, and more still prevail. Many people still live in poverty and have fewer opportunities to improve their lot in life.

Refugee crisis

The refugee crisis has reached unprecedented proportions in recent years. As several thousands of people from Syria try to escape the continuous violence in their country, many have died in their attempt to cross the seas. And their numbers are on top of the many still living in many refugee camps in different parts of the world. There have been criticisms that that the world is not doing enough to address this pressing problem. The recent image of a wounded child who was a victim of a recent bombing in Syria has caught many people’s attention. It highlighted the plight of the people in Syria, especially the children.

Terrorism

Terrorism has continued to rear its ugly head in recent months. Many cities across the globe have been attacked by terrorist groups with ISIS claiming many of the attacks. Every atrocity is a chilling reminder of how vulnerable everyone has become to this form of violence that has already claimed thousands of lives. As people try to grapple with the problem, many are asking if there would be an end to these horrific acts.

US Election 2016

The US Presidential Election has been a topic of discussions for several months now. As election draws near, the hotly contested race is still fodder for debates. Terrorism, gun violence, migrant crisis, and more are among the issues that people are asking for answers from candidates.

Hands Down To Sawyers!

As one of the most hazardous jobs in the entire world, it’s only right for us to appreciate sawyers even more in their craft of making our homes and the entire city safe from the perils of loose tree branches.

sawyers in action

 

Hands down to sawyers for these reasons:

  • They are basically exposed to more air pollution than others as they work outside all-day long.
  • They are more prone to accidents such as falling off from a high place, getting crushed by a heavy tree branch, or hacking themselves with a chainsaw.

Visit sawingpros.com for more tips, tricks, and guides on using chainsaws and other types of saws safely.

  • They don’t get recognized enough for their hard work, but they still help other people live worry-free by cutting those loose tree branches away before anyone gets badly hurt.
  • Their lives are always at risk, even more so when coordinating with those in the construction industry.
  • They don’t just help specific people, but also the entire neighborhood.
  • Their jobs are usually at risk, too – especially when they are not able to follow the guidelines and safety measures of a sawing job.
  • They probably don’t get to eat food and drink water as much as they needed to have due to the demanding nature of their work.
  • They have to keep their bodies in shape. Else, their productivity will be affected. Worse, serious accidents might occur if even one fails to give the required strength needed for the job.
  • They don’t just deal with wood. They also deal with plastic and metal, both of which have adverse effects on a human body when its remnants are accidentally inhaled or ingested.

You see, being a sawyer isn’t as easy as most people think it is. Which is why, we should learn to appreciate them – even more so as they continue making our neighborhoods clean and safe from loose tree branches.

Kudos to all sawyers in the world!

Our World Today

The World Today in Layman’s View

Suicide bombings, political killings, hate crimes. Typical news nowadays. What is exactly happening in our world today? With the media being controlled by the government, it is difficult to know whether each news is right or wrong. I am not a conspiracy theorist or an anarchist whatsoever. Open your eyes and don’t just believe everything you see in the TV and the web. Let’s cover some major issues that we are facing today.

Discrimination and other Racial Issues

KKK
Did Somebody Say ‘Racism’?

I know that this is a highly sensitive matter. So I apologize if someone gets really offended.

When Trump won the US Presidential race, he unleashed some racial slurs about Filipinos, Mexicans and other refugees. Why in the world would you do that? To impress the KKK? A president should be against this kind of discrimination. I hope that he will have a change of heart for his next years to come.

Then there’s the radical Muslims. Bomb this, bomb that. The majority of the Muslims I know are fun loving and caring people. They are giving the Muslims a bad name with their way to express themselves. Before race, religion and politics, we are all on the same page. But these things definitely divided us. I’m not saying religion is bad. But face the truth. It divided us considerably.

HIV and AIDS

Back in the 60’s, contracting HIV is quite rare. But now, it is considered as a global pandemic. The increase of the ones infected with the virus grows exponentially with each year passing by. Even with the modern advancement in the field of medicine, sadly, there’s still no scientifically proven cure for this disease. There are medications available on the market today that can increase the lifespan of someone living with HIV. By eating healthy, having plenty of exercise and medication, a person infected with HIV can still live a normal life. Juicing can help too. It provides our bodies valuable nutrients in order to function well. You can visit this site to learn more about the marvelous benefits of juicing: http://juicerkings.com/

Prevention is better than cure. Especially this disease. Someday, someone might find a cure for this disease somehow. We all hope that day comes sooner than expected.

 

Thanks for reading and I hope that you learned something from it. Keep safe.
