WHAT IS THE THEME OF WORLD EARTH DAY 2020?


Hi Readers, I hope you are safe and staying at home due to global lockdown. I stay in India and I am writing this blog on 30th March, 6th day of the lockdown. In India, there is a lockdown of 21 days. I am a social activist and working towards environment conservation from the last 3~4 years.

Are you amazed at why I am writing my introduction and telling you about global lockdown? I hope you must be, but I can see a close relationship, and, in this blog, I would love to share my thought on the relationship of global lockdown and environment protection.

2020 World Earth Day Theme


In the meantime, let’s go back to the topic of world earth day and see what is going to happen on this year of Earth Day.

World Earth Day is the global event celebrated every year on 22nd April and this year Earth day is very special for all of us who love our planet mother Earth. This year marks the 50th anniversary of world earth day. The theme of 2020 World Earth Day is Climate Change.

The first earth day was celebrated on 22nd April 1970 and it was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson. On this day in 1970, millions of Americans came out to the streets and demanded a strict method to protect the mother planet. The major purposes of the earth day were to provide clean air, clean water, and the protection of endangered species.

What is the Theme of World Earth Day 2020?

The theme of 2020 world earth day is Climate change and changing climate conditions is the biggest concern of the 21st century. It is the biggest threat to the future of humanity and the life support systems that make our world habitable. It would be a historic moment when the whole world comes together to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future.

World Earth Day 2020 Theme

 
What is the origin of World Earth Day?

The idea of earth day came into the mind of Senator Gaylord Nelson when he saw the extensive damage at Santa Barbara, California in 1969. Thousands of species like seabirds, dolphins, sea lions, etc. were died due to blowing out of 3 gallons oil. As a reaction of this disaster, several environmental activists were mobilized to create environment regulation. Nelson sensed the energy of these activists and convinced them to use this enthusiasm to raise public consciousness about air & water pollution. He met with Mr. Pete McCloskey and persuaded him to reserve a day for Earth Day. 25 years old Denis Hayes was appointed as coordinator. 


Theme Of 2020 World Earth Day

Finally, on 22nd April 1970, the first earth day observed. On this day, millions of American students collected in the streets, school & college campus, parks, auditoriums, etc. to demonstrate the importance of a healthy & sustainable environment. Thousands of universities also organized events in the school & colleges and registered their protest for the deterioration of the environment. Since then, it became the global movement and all the groups working individually for different environmental concerns came together and raise their voice in a united manner.

Since 1970, every year on 22nd April, Earth Day is celebrated and the purpose of this day is to ensure the availability of clean air, clean water and protect the endangered species. This year celebration marks the 50th anniversary of World Earth Day

 
What can we do to support the theme of Mother Earth Day 2020?

There are unlimited ways to serve our motherland or mother planet. We are already aware of several activities but I still sharing some common practices to follow.

*Plant a tree or if you don’t have space to plant a new tree, just adopt a newly plant tree and ensure the long life of that tree.

*Avoid the use of single use plastics and if possible, use only those materials made of recycling products only.

*Do not throw waste materials in the river, sea, canals, etc.

*Reuse the products as per the life cycle of the product.

*Avoid the use of polythene and always carry jute bag/clothes bag when you are going to buy vegetables/fruits.

*Conduct the seminars in the school/colleges/streets etc. to spread the awareness.

*Conserve the water & do the rain harvesting if possible. Also, avoid the wastage of the water.

*Use public transportation as much as possible. Don’t use vehicles when roaming/travelling in your streets for daily essentials shopping.

*Don’t throw the garbage here and there. Find out the proper place and discard it there only.

*Don’t do Loo/toilet in the open areas. Also, stop spitting here and there.

What is the meaning of Lockdown & Pros/Cons of global lockdown on the Environment?

Lockdown is basically a kind of situation where humans are not allowed to roam freely due to the emergency. It occurs due to coronavirus. Coronavirus started from China and then spread all over the world. It created a panic situation in the world and the entire world is suffering from this pandemic disease. India is also in the list of countries affected by Coronavirus and to minimize the risk of Coronavirus, the Indian prime minister announced the lockdown of 21 days last week. I know, there are many negative consequences of lockdown and it is a very difficult situation for the entire world. 

As we couldn’t avoid the lockdown, so I tried to find out some positives in it and found two positives in the favor of nature. I don’t know whether you like or dislike, but I urge all my readers to share your opinions as well in the comment box or mail us.

*Due to lockdown, all humans are locked inside the house while animals are roaming freely on the streets.
*There are no vehicles on the road, so the quality of Air index has been improved.

Have you heard about the coronavirus? I hope you must hear about it. The world is very anxious about this disease and every part of the world is working to find out the cure of coronavirus. This post describes coronavirus and what to do to avoid it

The recent occurrence of Coronavirus in China caused a global concern and it was originated from a seafood or meat market. Breathing problem is the major problem caused by the novel corona virus (named 2019-nCoV). Coronavirus was initially restricted to the six cities of China but in the recent times, it has been spread to the other parts of the world. On January 30, 2020, the WHO declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern.” Indian government is taking full-fledged preventive measures with respect to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that range from the common cold to much more serious diseases. 2019-nCoV is a new strain of coronavirus which has not been previously identified in humans.

Know Everything About Coronavirus in Detail


If you are cancer patient or a survivor or a care giver you must know something more about the Corona Virus. It is important to understand the corona virus first. There are several types of coronavirus circulating in the world and most of them do not cause severe diseases. Sometimes, a person suffers from cold or the sniffles, then it is likely possible that person may have already been exposed to a coronavirus. However, some important things cancer patients must know about coronaviruses, including the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that was first identified in Hubei province of China.

What is a coronavirus?

Human corona virus is a family of virus that are present throughout the world. Among the various types, seven are seven commonly known. Among these seven viruses, four viruses known as 229E, NL63, OC43 and HKU1 cause only mild or moderate upper-respiratory illness, such as the common cold. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), mostly people get infected with one of these common types of coronavirus in their lifetime.

Know Everything About Coronavirus in Detail


Why 2019 novel coronavirus different?

Sometimes as an unusual case, a coronavirus from animals may evolve and become a “jump species” and infects humans. These viruses then can cause more severe infections and diseases in humans, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).

The latest COVID-19 respiratory disease that originated in Wuhan is believed to be the latest example of animal-to-person spread. Those patients who suffered from cancer and survived has compromised immune systems, and the reporting of this diseases may likely be source of anxiety. Human immune system is made up of cells, tissues, and organs. It is your body’s defense mechanism against infections and sickness caused due to invaders like bacteria or viruses est.

Compromised immune system which is also referred to as immune suppressed or immune compromised state means that your body supports a weakened immune response to invading organisms.  A compromised immune system makes you more susceptible to viruses and bacteria’s and so the people who have undergone cancer treatment including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy Bone marrow transplants etc. have a compromised or suppressed immune system which means weak defence against infections including viruses. When you get an infection, the body produces cytokines which help to control and direct the immune system to the infection but a compromised immune system after or during cancer treatment is not so strong and well-functioning. Viral infection is a common problem during cancer treatment and patients are at a bigger risk of infection due to weak defence against infection.

KNOW ABOUT CORONAVIRUS AND ITS EFFECTS IN DETAIL


According to a recent research article in the Lancet Oncology journal, Chinese medical researchers have found that patients with cancer are more vulnerable to infection of the novel coronavirus. The article stated that malignancy and anticancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or surgery causes systemic immunosuppressive state which might put the cancer patients might at an increased risk of the novel coronavirus and such patients might also have a poorer prognosis.

Novel Corona virus is a global concern and not just people with compromised immune system, but everyone shall be aware of it to stop more damage to human life. This virus has already taken thousand lives and it is advisable to everyone shall be careful and protect themselves from all respiratory infections and prevent the spread of disease by:

1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick or infected

2. Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

3. Wash your hands frequently with soap. The usage of alcohol-based sanitizer or antiseptic gel is advisable.

4. Avoid being in crowded areas and around ill people.

5. Don’t consume the raw or under-cooked animal products.

6. Always cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

7. Always clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

The WHO recommends that if you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China, cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, sanitize the objects and surfaces you touch, and to stay at home until you are recovered, if possible. If you have recently visited China and develop flu like symptoms you must consult the doctors immediately.

The first impression counts! This holds true for your teeth also. If you adopt a healthy habit of taking care of your teeth daily, they will also look after you in the long term. As we age, we become careless for certain important things and tend to let slide. Dental health and hygiene are one of the vital areas of our health that we generally tend to ignore. Proper oral hygiene is very important as this is connected with the general health of our whole body.

It’s our sole responsibility to take routine maintenance and care of our dental health as we age. This is an essential factor as oral health and hygiene determine the overall quality of our life.

Keys to Maintain Your Oral Health


It’s worth spending a few hours from your busy schedule to discover the benefits of regular dental care regime.

Dental Care at Home:  

This is one of the most important practices that every dental clinic prescribes. You should inculcate the healthy habit of brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily. One after getting up in morning and the other one is before going to your bed at night. You can use adaptive toothbrushes and inter-dental tools if required. Avoid sugary food as much as possible. Drink plenty of water in a day. This will help you in protecting from the condition of dry mouth.

Clean Your Removable Dentures Daily: 

Your removable partial or full denture requires proper care and maintenance. This help in keeping them clean, free from the accumulation of harmful pathogens and looking their best. You should remove and rinse them after eating, handle them with proper care and brush them at least daily. They should be soaked overnight in water or mild denture soaking-solution. This helps them to stay moist and maintain their shape.

Replace Your Missing Teeth with Dental Implant: 

Today dental implants are one of the most popular options for many dental patients. They prefer dental implants to dentures or bridge for replacing their missing teeth. They look natural and function the same as your original teeth. 

Regular Dentist Visit for a Routine Check-up: 

Develop the habit of visiting your dentist regularly for a routine dental check-up. This practice keeps your teeth in proper condition. This also helps in early detection of underlying oral problems if you have any. This can protect your pocket money from expensive dental treatment down the line.

Top 5 Tips For Speech Development of Your Toddler


5-Valuable-Tips-That-Encourages-Language-&-Speech-Development of Your Toddler



5 Valuable Tips That Encourages Language & Speech Development of Your Toddler

It is very difficult for you to judge the rate of development of language and speech of your child because every child is different and so their rate of language and speech development. It’s your duty to observe whether your child’s rate of speech is constantly improving or not. It’s natural that by the age of three you will be able to understand what your child says. At the same time, your child will be able to understand what other people say.

It may be possible that your child can speak but his words won’t flow smoothly. He may face difficulty in expressing his thoughts in full sentences because of the broken syllables or words. This may result in a lack of clarity in speech.

There are time-proven 5 valuable tips that can be of great help to your child. These tips help in improving your child’s communication skills and his quality of life. He can communicate easily and freely with family, friends, and others.

Tip 1: Talk about What You Are Doing

When you are with your toddler, you should make an effort to talk about what you are doing, seeing, touching, eating, or listening to. A speech pathologist called this self-talk. Keep it short, simple, and fun.

For example: “I am washing the dishes…” “…. now I am drying them…” or “I see a doggie…” “…he is a big doggie.” While talking don’t expect your little one to repeat you. Narrating what you are doing simply gives your child exposure to the language. It helps your child understand that talking is not only fun but also functional.

Tip 2: Talk about What Your Child Is Doing

When you are watching your child play, talk about what he or she is doing. The speech therapist called this “parallel talk.” Use simple words that are easy to understand for your toddler. Don’t forget to keep the sentences short and simple. For example, “You are building a big tower! Wow!” or “You threw the ball! Nice throw, dear!”

Tip 3: Avoid Asking Too Many Questions

If you ask too many questions, your child may feel like you are testing him, and it can be overwhelming. You can rather take the help of simpler comments. For example, instead of picking up a toy car and asking, “What is it?”, you can say, “This car runs fast!” Pause and wait for a few seconds to see if he responds. If he doesn’t say anything, you should add another comment like, “I love your car.”

After a few comments, you can throw in an open-ended question like: “Where is your car going?” Don’t be discouraged if he doesn’t respond since some open-ended questions can be a challenging word-retrieval task.

Tip 4: Give Options

If you find that your child is not responding well to open-ended questions, then offering an option may make his response a little easier. When we give options to the toddlers, we are telling them that they have some control and their input matters. Providing choices and options also encourages decision-making ability and promotes language development.

“Dear do you want to play with the car or the boat?” Have the car and the boat in your hands and hold each one up while you present each choice. If you offer a choice to your child, it will be easier for him to imitate and repeat the same thing. It will also help him to point or gesture the same thing if he can’t say anything yet.

Tip 5: Expand Your Toddlers Language

When your toddler starts combining two words while speaking, he may try to say something like: “I play” or “baby sleep”.  Take this opportunity to add in the missing words to make it a grammatically correct sentence. So, you can say, “I am playing” or “baby is sleeping.”

 
Final Thought

Give your child time to improve his language and speaking skills. Your patience and positive outlook play a significant role in helping your child to learn and improve his skills. Your child benefits the most when you empathize with him.

WHAT ARE THE TOP 5 REASONS FOR HUNGER & POVERTY?


Reasons For Hunger And Poverty


We are about to celebrate world food day and the major purpose of this day is to ensure the availability of the food for each individual in the world. The entire world & Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) are trying to ensure the availability of food but still, a million peoples across the world have no access to food.

There are numerous reasons behind hunger & poverty and here we list down top 5 reasons behind hunger & poverty.

POVERTY

Among the top 5 reasons behind hunger & poverty, poverty itself is the prime reason behind the hunger in the world. Peoples living in poverty can’t afford healthy food leading to undernourishment or malnutrition. Poverty & hunger go together and if you are a part of a poor family, it means getting food every day is not that much easy.

Reasons For Hunger And Poverty


If we talk about the world, the Democratic Republic of Congo is the poorest country in the world. The population of Congo is roughly 80 million out of which the majority of then live below 1.25$ per day.

FOOD SHORTAGES

The 2nd reason among the top 5 reasons for poverty & hunger is the shortages of Food. There are several factors responsible for the food shortages and here in this post, we have added a few factors after doing detailed research over the internet.

1. We all are aware of the fact that the population of the world is increasing continuously while the yielding capacity of the fields is shrinking day by day. The gap between the population increase and production decrease are becoming wider day by day and hence it has become next to impossible to arrange food for all.

2. The largest group of people in the world in extreme poverty are smallholder farmers in developing countries.  They do not have the land to grow enough food to supply themselves with enough to eat year-round, and they earn so little income from what they sell that they cannot afford to purchase food from other sources once their supply runs out.

3. The farmers employed in agriculture are also decreasing day by day due to less income. The costs incurred in producing crops are increasing day by day while the production is not increasing that much to compensate that additional cost. Subsequent to this, farmers have to face flood & drought very often due to climate change that affects the production as well.

4. If we are talking about food shortages then it is necessary to talk about Africa as well. There are certain places in Africa where families have to endure a period where they do not have enough food to eat. This period is called “hungry seasons” and it is the time in between the year when there is a gap in the food supplies between the two harvests. This situation forces the families to skip one meal of the day.
·         

CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate plays a very major role in crop production and the output crop production is affected due to continuous change in climate as well. The entire world is suffering from this climate change. The certain parts of the world experience the heavy rainfall while other parts of the world experience less rain, some parts of the world experience flood while some other parts of the world experience drought. These fluctuations are made worse by the El NiƱo weather system and are likely to increase due to changes in climate. 

It is the greatest environmental challenge the world has ever faced and if it is continuous, it is close to impossible to feed all the population of the world. With references to the estimates published by the World Bank, these extreme weather conditions have the power to push more than 100 million people into poverty over the next decade.  This is the 3rd factor among the top 5 reasons for poverty & hunger.

FOOD WASTAGE

The wastage of food is another factor in the list of top 5 reasons for hunger and poverty and we should consider the food wastage as a crime and there should be a pledge from ourselves to stop food wastage. We need to understand that a million peoples around the world don’t have access to have meals two times a day and if we have food in excess, then give it to the needy persons instead of throwing it to the garbage.

Reasons For Hunger And Poverty


UNEMPLOYMENT OR JOB UNCERTAINTY

Unemployment or Job Uncertainty is also a very vital aspect accountable for poverty & hunger.  Several factors like market conditions, economy, etc. are accountable behind job creation and if the condition of the market or economy is not well, then there will fewer jobs in the market. As defined in the first point, hunger is mainly caused by poverty and poverty occurs if there are no jobs or very fewer jobs in the market.

Reasons For Hunger And Poverty

 FLUCTUATION IN THE FOOD PRICES

Fluctuation in the food prices are somehow also responsible for a higher rate of hunger & poverty. Individuals having low income are mainly dependent upon basic grains such as wheat, rice, potatoes, tomatoes, corn, etc. largest share of calories. Any fluctuations that push the food prices upwards require additional hardship from low-income group families or families starts skipping one meal of the day.

The other factors responsible for poverty & hunger are war & conflict, poor nutrition, poor public policy, lack of infrastructure, unstable economy, gender inequality and many more.
