By resource is meant any physical entity, which has limited availability. These resources occur in their natural form. Few examples of natural resources are: •Air, wind and atmosphere •Plants (Flora) •Animals (Fauna) •Agronomy (the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber) •Wildlife •Forestry and Agroforestry •Coal and fossil fuels •Range and pasture •Soils •Water, oceans, lakes and rivers Something that people generally arent aware of, is that everything we use in everyday life are derived from natural resources, for example, milk which comes from cows - animals are a natural resource. We use water, food and vegetables that comes from plants, salt which is a mineral are some of the other natural resources. Wood that we get from tree is a natural resource. It can be used to build a house, make paper, burn in fireplaces and in stoves for cooking, etc. Man utilizes these resources in various ways. These resources are processed further so as to be made suitable for our needs. The table below is an example that shows in what way the resources have been utilized.

Examples of Renewable Resources
Visit us/get in touch at: http://wastersblog.com/1653/examples-of-renewable-resources/ We provide Examples of Renewable Resources: A renewable resource is one that replaces itself normally at a rate equal to or higher than human usage. The term normally refers to renewable energies, which are self-sustaining in time. There are 5 primary kinds of renewable resources, solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and biomass. Many countries today are increasing their use of renewable energies to change fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, which take thousands and occasionally millions of years to change themselves, making them non-renewable resources. Examples of non-renewable resources are fossil fuels, like coal, oil, natural gas and soil, rocks, minerals. As soon as they have been gotten rid of from a mine or removed it takes a very long time indeed for them to re-form. We have actually counted on fossil fuels for our energy requires because, traditionally, these fuels have actually been reasonably inexpensive, and rewarding for designers. With increasing fuel costs, issues about ecological effect and growing political concerns about oil providers, renewable energy is acquiring in importance. Renewable resources are natural sources that can not be diminished. Examples consist of solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass and geothermal. Fossil fuels like coal, oil and even clean-burning gas do not exist in unrestricted supply. One day they will be gone. In additional to unending availability, renewable resources create less environmental impact, specifically pollution. Generally speaking renewable resources can be categorized as natural renewable resources and non-organic renewable resources. Plant and animal species are the examples of natural renewable resources whereas gases like oxygen and water are the examples of non-organic renewable resources. Birds or animals getting extinct have now become a regular function. Although some species have actually disappeared from the earth's surface due to natural tragedies, most of them have actually become extinct due to excessive hunting and poaching. Examples of renewable resources are fresh water, fish, and soil. Non-renewable resources such as oil and minerals are irreplaceable, and they do not effectively regrow once they are consumed. Renewable energy describes power created by a renewable source. When the energy is generated, the resource is not exhausted or consumed. They are naturally replenished, and can either be managed so that they last permanently, or their supply is so enormous human beings can never ever meaningfully deplete them. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources do not release carbon dioxide as a byproduct into the atmosphere. As the quantity of nonrenewable fuel source resources in the world lowers, it is ending up being increasingly essential to discover and make use of alternative fuels. In the US, Alternative Energy is made use of and in general it implies the like renewable, implies any thing besides deriving energy through Fossil Fuel combustion. Alternative energy is likewise a natural deposit ends up being a renewable resource when it is replaced by natural processes at a rate which is quicker than its consumption rate by human beings. Solar radiation, tides, winds and hydroelectricity are the sources which are of lasting accessibility. Renewable resources may include mean products like wood, paper, and leather, if their harvesting is carried out in a sustainable way. So, to summarize, we will certainly just say that renewable resource is a natural resource that can replaced with biological or other natural processes and renewed after a long time. They are part of natural environment however they are threatened by commercial developments and development. Solar radiation, biomass, tides, geothermal, and winds are examples of renewable resources.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, to enjoy a better life | Educational Video for Kids.
The three Rs Hello I am the Earth, yup the very planet you live on. There are three words which start with the letter R which I love. They are: Reduce, reuse and recycle. Do you know why I love them so much? Because they are almost magical words. Together they can make all living things as well as myself be happier. I said that they are “almost” magical because without your help it won't work, they need all of you children in order to do the trick. Each and every one of you are the real 3Rs magicians, those three words which can change the world. Do you want to know how? Yes? Well let's find out. The first R is for reduce. If you think about it, there are many things you don’t need. When you go to the supermarket, I am sure you could take your own canvas bags instead of using disposable ones given to you. This way you will be reducing the amount of plastic which is very contaminating. And I am sure that you don’t need to print out so many documents or photos, nor leave the lights, television or computer on when you are not using them. If you remember this, you will be reducing the amount of paper being used as well as energy, and in turn will be helping reduce the contamination. And these are just a few examples. I am sure you can think of many more different ways to reduce what you are using or creating unnecessary waste. The following question will help you with this task: Do I really need this or is this just a whim? The second R is for recycling. Now it is easier than ever to recycle things we don’t need any more so that they can be reused. Near your home you can find places, like the recycling station and containers for cans, plastic, paper or organic waste. They each have their specific colors to make them easier. By using them, you will avoid contaminating nature, the rivers and seas as well as the atmosphere, which is the air we breathe. And finally we have the third R, which refers to reuse. How many things do you think we can reuse again and again instead of throwing them away? Let´s see…a piece of paper that has only one side printed on it, a carton box, a plastic bottle…you think now. With just a bit of imagination, I am sure you will come up with many more exciting and fun new uses for them. And remember: if you apply the 3Rs rule, you will make me a much cleaner planet, with less contamination and where we all can enjoy a better life. Because as you know…children can make the world of difference.

Proof of evolution that you can find on your body
You have your mom's smile, your dad's eyes, and the ear muscles of a Triassic mammal. Forty-two percent of Americans say that humans were created in their present form within the past 10,000 years — a percentage that hasn't changed much since 1982, when Gallup started polling views on evolution. Several lines of evidence, from the fossil record, comparative anatomy, and genetics, tell another story. But you don't have to read all the research to find signs of our evolutionary history — you can see it in the vestigial structures in each of our bodies, like the third molars that no longer fit in our mouths.

What are NATURAL RESOURCES? What do NATURAL RESOURCES mean? NATURAL RESOURCES meaning - NATURAL RESOURCES definition - NATURAL RESOURCES explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Natural resources are all that exists without the actions of humankind. This includes all natural characteristics such as magnetic, gravitational, and electrical properties and forces. On earth we include sunlight, atmosphere, water, land (includes all minerals) along with all vegetation and animal life that naturally subsists upon or within the heretofore identified characteristics and substances. Particular areas such as "The rainforest in Fatu-Hiva" are often characterized by the biodiversity and geodiversity existent in their ecosystems. Natural resources may be further classified in different ways. Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level). A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, mineral oil, and most forms of energy. There is much debate worldwide over natural resource allocations, this is partly due to increasing scarcity (depletion of resources) but also because the exportation of natural resources is the basis for many economies (particularly for developed nations). Some natural resources such as sunlight and air can be found everywhere, and are known as ubiquitous resources. However, most resources only occur in small sporadic areas, and are referred to as localized resources. There are very few resources that are considered inexhaustible (will not run out in foreseeable future) – these are solar radiation, geothermal energy, and air (though access to clean air may not be). The vast majority of resources are exhaustible, which means they have a finite quantity and can be depleted if managed improperly.

Rap-Rock Song & Lyrics About Natural Resources -Earth Science for Kids in Elementary & Middle School
This is a Rap - Rock song with lyrics for kids in elementary, middle & high school, about Earth Science. In particular this is a song about natural resources - renewable and non-renewable. More info and free downloads here: http://brambarker.com/scirave/scirave.html#EarthScience · A natural resource can be renewable or nonrenewable. Renewable resources, like trees, replace themselves quickly. Nonrenewable resources, like coal, take thousands or million of years to replace. · People use many resources faster than the earth replaces them. Recycling is a process that treats materials for reuse so that we don’t have to gather as many resources from nature. · All energy resources can be traced back to the sun. The energy resource we use the most are fossil fuels. · Fossil fuels are nonrenewable. They form from the remains of dead organisms that are millions of years old. · Petroleum, or crude oil, is the liquid fossil fuel we get gasoline from. · Gaseous fossil fuels are natural gases. Natural gases power our kitchen stoves. · Coal is a solid fossil fuel that comes from buried, decomposed plant material. Coal is also a rock. · We are always looking for alternative energy sources because obtaining fossil fuels harms the environment. When coal is burned, sulfor dioxide is released and combines with the moisture in the air to make acid rain (sulfuric acid). · Nuclear energy is an alternative source of energy that comes from splitting the nuclei of atoms. This process is called fission, and it releases a lot of energy that is used to run electric generators in power plants. The waste products are easy to contain, but it is hard to know where to bury them. · Solar cells, like the ones on calculators, get their energy directly from the sun. Solar energy does not pollute like many other energy resources, but solar panels are very expensive to make. · Wind is another clean energy source. However, wind turbines are only effective in places where the wind is steady, such as California and north Texas. · Hydroelectric energy uses the power of falling water to make energy. Like wind energy, hydroelectric energy cannot be harnessed everywhere. Dams built to harness this energy also hurt the fish populations and other wildlife. · Underground water is hot enough in some places to evaporate into steam. Geothermal energy uses the steam from natural vents called geysers to power electric generators.

Factors of Production (Resources) There 4 factors of production, namely, land/raw materials, labor, capital and entrepreneurship. Why is entrepreneurship considered a type of resource? Well, because an entrepreneur brings other 3 factors of production (land/raw materials, capital and labor) together to make production possible. Why is money not considered a type of resource in economics? What is the difference between economic capital and financial capital?

The Crash Course - Chapter 23 - The Environment - Depleting Resources
Why scarcity will define the future. When we wander over to the third E in this story – the Environment - we note two things: both the increasing demand of exponentially more resources being extracted from the ground and exponentially more waste being put back into various ecosystems. Because we are trying to assess here whether we can justify ever-increasing amounts of money and debt, for now let's just concern ourselves with the resources we take from the natural world to support our global economy. Oil is not the only essential resource that is fast becoming more expensive to produce, harder to find, or both. In fact, we see an alarming number of examples depletion of critical resources that almost exactly mirror the oil story. First we went after the easy and or high quality stuff, then the progressively trickier, deeper and or more dilute stuff. The bottom line is this: we, as a species, all over the globe, have already mined the richest ores, found the easiest energy sources, and farmed the richest soils that our Environment has to offer. We have taken several hundreds of millions of years of natural ore body, fossil energy deposition, aquifer accumulation, soil creation, and animal population growth -- and largely burned through them in the few years since oil was discovered. It is safe to say that in human terms, once these are gone, man, they’re gone. So, if we are getting less and less net energy for our efforts, and the other basic resources we need to support exponential economic growth are requiring a lot more energy to extract because they are depleting, then does it make sense to keep piling up exponentially more money and debt? Isn't it just common sense to observe that money and debt have to exist in some sort of relationship and proportion to primary and secondary wealth?

Living and Nonliving Things for Kids | #aumsum
Living and Nonliving Things. Things which can grow, move, breathe and reproduce are called living things. Living things can also feel emotions like anger, fear and happiness. After growing and living for a long time living things ultimately die. Examples of living things are human beings, animals and plants. Plants cannot move from one place to another. However, plants move their stem to face the sun. Hence, they are also living things. Things which cannot grow, move, breathe and reproduce are called nonliving things. They do not have any kind of life in them. Examples of nonliving things are rocks, bucket and water.

Are We Running Out of Resources?
Prof. Steve Horwitz addresses the common belief that the world is running out of natural resources. Instead, there are economic reasons why we will never run out of many resources. In a free market system, prices signal scarcity. So as a resource becomes more scarce, it becomes more expensive, which incentivizes people to use less of it and develop new alternatives, or to find new reserves of that resource that were previously unknown or unprofitable. We have seen throughout history that the human mind's ability to innovate, coupled with a free market economic system, is an unlimited resource that can overcome the limitations we perceive with natural resources.

Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

√ Case Studies on Natural Resources | Industrial Chemistry | Chemistry
#iitutor #Chemistry #IndustrialChemistry https://www.iitutor.com Case study 1 Natural resource: guano (natural nitrogen/phosphate fertiliser formed from bird droppings) These natural resources in Peru and Nauru rapidly became depleted as intensive-farming practices developed around the world. Synthetic replacement: superphosphate Superphosphate is produced from crushed phosphate rocks treated with sulfuric acid. The mixture of hydrated calcium sulfate and calcium dihydrogen Case study 2 Natural resource: natural rubber Natural rubber [poly-cis- isoprene ] is derived from the latex of the rubber tree. The latex consists of a polymer colloid of a monomer called isoprene, see Figure 5.1(1). The precipitation of the rubber particles from the latex produces an elastic, sticky, gummy mass. In 1839, Charles Goodyear found that by vulcanising (i.e. cross-linking the polymer chains with short sulfur chains) the natural rubber a non-sticky, elastic product was produced. This vulcanised natural rubber soon became used in a wide variety of products including tyres, insulation, mattresses and rainwear. Rubber production could not keep up with demand, especially from the vehicle industry. A synthetic replacement was needed. Synthetic replacement: synthetic rubber Polymer chemists developed synthetic rubber polymers of butadiene and copolymers of styrene and butadiene in the 1940s. In 1955, Firestone and Goodyear discovered how to cheaply make synthetic poly-cis-isoprene using stereoregulating catalysts. The synthetic rubber is identical to natural rubber, and today synthetic rubber makes up any shortfall in natural rubber production. Case study 3 Wood With the expansion of cities into the countryside, the clearing of land for farming, and the rapid deforestation of old-growth forests, there may well be a severe shortage of wood for furniture and building in the near future. A shortage of wood will increase the cost of what is available so that it is too expensive for the ordinary consumer. One of the possible replacements for wood in furniture is polypropylene. Petrochemical-based polymer replacements for wood There are many ecologically aware companies around the world producing replacement timber from recycled plastics. Plastics such as polyethylenes, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, and PET can all be recycled. Many of these recycled plastic products are also graffiti-proof and do not require painting or other maintenance common to wood products used in public places such as parks and bus stops. Polymers such as HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PET, polystyrene, and polypropylene are effective replacements for wood and ivory (amongst other natural products). However, the production of these polymers also requires a significant amount of a natural product, petroleum. Although the amount of petroleum required is only a few per cent of overall petroleum usage, it is still significant. In fact this amount will become more significant as this non-renewable resource is used up. In time, better technology will have to be developed to make these polymers from renewable feed stocks such as ethanol or cellulose. Polypropylene can be moulded into almost any shape required by the furniture industry, has excellent weather ability, is easy to maintain, is lightweight, and is available in many colours. Mixtures of low density polyethylene and high density polyethylene are also available in an extruded form that can look like wood and be used for the same purposes. In addition these materials don't have the impact on the environment that logging has. Others Other possible replacements for wood are aluminium and steel, but these are considerably more expensive to extract and refine than polymers. Cellulose-based polymers Cellulose-based polymers do not rely on the petrochemical industry for raw materials. These polymers—such as cellulose acetate, cellulose nitrate, and rayon—are a good solution to the problem of diminishing natural resources. Unfortunately, while these polymers make excellent fibres and light¬weight, low durability plastics, they are not suitable for the full range of applications required to replace natural products such as wood.

Light | Videos for Kids | #aumsum
Our topic for today is Introduction to Light. Light is a form of energy that enables us to see all the things around us. The main source of light on the earth is the sun. Plants are able to prepare their own food using sunlight. Some other objects also give out light. They are known as luminous objects. For example, bulbs, lamps, candles, etc. are luminous objects. While there are some objects that do not give out light. They are known as non luminous objects. For example table, cloth, bag, utensils, etc. are non luminous objects. Non luminous objects are generally of two types, transparent objects and opaque objects. Transparent objects are those that allow light to pass through them, like glass, water etc. While, Opaque objects are those that do not allow light to pass through them, like wood, stone etc.

Potential and Kinetic Energy for Kids | #aumsum
Energy can neither be created nor it can be destroyed. Energy can only be converted from one form to another. The unit of energy is joules. Energy can broadly be classified as potential energy and kinetic energy. Potential energy is the energy in a body due to its position. While kinetic energy is the energy in a body due to its motion. The formula for potential energy is mgh, where m stands for mass, g stands for gravitational acceleration and h stands for height. Now, let us calculate the potential energy possessed by a boy who is at the top of a tree assuming that his mass is 30 kg, gravitational acceleration is 9.8 meters per second squared and height is 20 meters. Using the formula of potential energy, we can say that the potential energy possessed by is 5880 joules. However, when the boy begins to fall his potential energy starts getting converted into kinetic energy. Just before he lands, all his potential energy gets converted into kinetic energy. The formula to calculate kinetic energy is 1 upon 2 into m into v square, where m stands for mass and v stands for velocity. Also, don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Extra info & links below... Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sustain_Illustr Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sustainabilityillustrated Videos are created by Alexandre Magnin using years of experience drawing and working as a sustainability consultant with businesses and communities: http://www.amcreative.org ** In this video, I present the concept of Natural Capitalism: a way of doing business that recognizes the value of natural and human resources and life-supporting ecological services. In a nutshell, natural capitalism means taking good care of the goose that lays the golden egg: what nature provides for your business should be on your balance sheet. ** Credits & Resources: Music: Swamp Stomp by Silent Partner Sound effects from http://freesound.org https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_Capitalism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collapse_of_the_Atlantic_northwest_cod_fishery http://www.natcap.org ** Transcript: What is natural capitalism? It is a way of doing business that recognizes the value of natural and human resources and life-supporting ecological services. Here’s a story to illustrate. In the 1950’s in the Atlantic northwest, equipment and technology made it possible to fish cod faster than the fish stocks could replenish. The cod was treated like an infinite resource; no financial value was assigned to cod in the balance sheets, but income from selling the fish was. Using financial language, essentially we liquidated our capital of cod and called it income. In 40 short years, the northern cod biomass fell to 1% and in 1992, the Canadian government declared a moratorium, ending the region's 500-year run with the Northern Cod. As discussed in our triple bottom line video, the economy is part of society, which is part of the environment. This means all economic and social progress ultimately depends on the environment, the largest circle. That’s natural capital: the ecosystem services and natural resources that we need to survive and thrive. The middle circle represents society, or the human capital. Our economy is the smallest circle because it is governed by the rules, regulations and structures of the other two circles. The economy depends on human capital and natural capital to thrive. In the collapse of the Northern Atlantic cod fishery, the environment circle of cod was destroyed when the fish were gone. Then the social circle of fishing communities on the eastern coast of Canada was badly damaged when people were out of work, and with it the economic viability of the cod fisheries. What would a natural capitalism approach to this issue have looked like? Well, it would have meant: Feeding people and increasing material welfare by providing fish without impacting our resources and ecological systems Imitating nature (also known as biomimicry) in the fishing processes and products: managing cod as a living resource and making sure it is not removed from the ocean faster than it naturally replenishes And focusing on the service being provided (feeding people) and not only the product that provides it (the cod). This would have helped to create sustainable business models that feed people and support fishing communities while culling fewer fish. In other industries, focusing on the service rather than the product is called “dematerialization” and this will be the subject of another video. Here is an another example about an every day product that we can all relate to. Say you are a clothing company making and selling jeans. What would accounting for natural capital look like? The value of cotton for fabric of course, but also the plants used to make the dye that gives the jeans their colour; copper and steel for rivets and zippers; plastic and leather for labels; and even the raw material for the machinery needed for dyeing, spinning, weaving, etc.. It would also include the value of the human capital wherever the jeans are made. All of this would be added to the production costs and compared with the income generated by selling the clothes. In a nutshell, natural capitalism means taking good care of the golden goose so it keeps on giving: what nature provides for your business should be on your balance sheet. Businesses all over the world are innovating and gaining competitive advantage from applying the natural capital business model. I’ll share some stories about some of these companies in future videos. I’ll also be sharing videos on circular economy, biomimicry and the associated business opportunities, so stay tuned!

Environmental pollution
7 Kinds of Environmental Pollution...   There are actually SEVEN different kinds of environmental pollution. Most people can name air, water and land...do you know the other four? Or examples of what constitutes actual pollution in each category? Listed below are each kind and examples to help you understand just how we can affect the environment and each other. Air Pollution Photo Source According to the dictionary, air pollution is the contamination of air by smoke and harmful gases, mainly oxides of carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen. (And maybe by that smelly uncle.) Some examples of air pollution include: Exhaust fumes from vehicles The burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, or gas Harmful off- gasing from things such as paint, plastic production, and so on Radiation spills or nuclear accidents Air pollution is linked to asthma, allergies and other respiratory illnesses. You can more about how the environment affects human health here. Land Pollution Photo Source Land pollution is the degradation of the Earth's surface caused by a misuse of resources and improper disposal of waste. Some examples of land pollution include: Litter found on the side of the road Illegal dumping in natural habitats Oil spills that happen inland The use of pesticides and other farming chemicals Damage and debris caused from unsustainable mining and logging practices Radiation spills or nuclear accidents Land pollution is responsible for damage done to natural habitat of animals, deforestation and damage done to natural resources, and the general ugly-ing up of our communities. (So stop being a litterbug, eh?) Light Pollution Light pollution is the brightening of the night sky inhibiting the visibility of stars and planets by the use of improper lighting of communities. Some examples of what causes light pollution: Street lamps that shine light in all directions, instead of with a hood to point light downward toward the street. Extra, unnecessary lights around the home Cities that run lights all night long Light pollution uses more energy (by shining more light up instead of down, meaning you need brighter bulbs for the same amount of light), may affect human health and our sleep cycles, and most importantly, corrupts our kids telescopes and their curiosity. (I grew up in a city. My first no-light night in the country blew my mind. Let's not make that such a rare occasion!) Noise Pollution Photo Source Noise pollution is any loud sounds that are either harmful or annoying to humans and animals. Some exmaples of noise pollution: Airplanes, helicopters, and motor vehicles Construction or demolition noise Human activities such as sporting events or concerts Noise pollution can be disruptive to humans' stress levels, may be harmful to unborn babies, and drives animals away by causing nervousness and decreasing their ability to hear prey or predators. Thermal Pollution Thermal pollution is the increase of temperature caused by human activity. A few examples of this include: Warmer lake water from nearby manufacturing (using cool water to cool the plant and then pump it back into the lake) Included in thermal pollution should also be the increase in temperatures in areas with lots of concrete or vehicles, generally in cities These kinds of environmental pollution can cause aquatic life to suffer or die due to the increased temperature, can cause discomfort to communities dealing with higher temperatures, and will affect plant-life in and around the area. Visual Pollution Photo Source Visual pollution is what you would call anything unattractive or visualing damaging to the nearby landscape. This tends to be a highly subjective topic. Some examples of visual pollution: Skyscrapers that blocks a natural view Graffiti or carving on trees, rocks, or other natural landscapes Billboards, litter, abandoned homes, and junkyards could also be considered among three kinds of environmental pollution Mostly, visual kinds of environmental pollution are annoying and ugly, although some may say they are also depressing, and they of course affect the surrounding landscape with the changes they cause. When a man throws an empty cigarette package from an automobile, he is liable to a fine of $50. When a man throws a billboard across a view, he is richly rewarded. - Pat Brown Water Pollution Photo Source: Alan Liefting Water pollution is the contamination of any body of water (lakes, groundwater, oceans, etc). Some examples of water pollution: Raw sewage running into lake or streams Industrial waste spills contaminating groundwater Radiation spills or nuclear accidents Illegal dumping of substances or items within bodies of water Biological contamination, such as bacteria growth Farm runoff into nearby bodies of water These kinds of environmental pollution are linked to health issues in humans, animals and plant-life.

Air Pollution. Due to cutting of trees, burning of wood, burning of fossil fuels, smoke released from factories and industries, smoke released from vehicles our air is getting polluted. Due to air pollution, human beings suffer from a number of diseases like Asthma, Bronchitis, Cancer. Air pollution also affects the growth of plants. Air pollution causes damage to our beautiful historical monuments. To reduce pollution, we should take some preventive measures: Plant more trees. Avoid bursting firecrackers. Make more use of public transport. Service your vehicles regularly. Factories and power plants should be set up far from residential areas to reduce air pollution.

Deborah Brautigam: China is successful in Africa where NGOs are not - providing infrastructure
Want to join the debate? Check out the Intelligence Squared website to hear about future live events and podcasts: http://www.intelligencesquared.com __________________________ http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/beware-of-the-dragon Deborah Brautigam was speaking against the motion "Beware of the dragon: Africa should not look to China" at this IQ2 debate at Cadogan Hall in London on 28th November 2011. Event info: We all know that the Chinese are the neo-colonialists of Africa. They've plundered the continent of its natural resources, tossing aside any concern for human rights and doing deals with some of the world's most unsavoury regimes. The relentless pursuit of growth is China's only spur. But is this picture really fair? In Angola, for example, China's low-interest loans have been tied to a scheme that has ensured that roads, schools and other infrastructure has been built. China has an impressive track record of lifting its own millions out of poverty and can do the same for Africa. And is the West's record in Africa as glowing as we like to think? After decades of pouring aid into Africa, how much have we actually achieved in terms of reducing poverty, corruption and war? So which way should Africa look for salvation -- to the West, to China, or perhaps to its own people? Come to the debate and decide for yourself.

Competition and Natural Selection | Biology for All | FuseSchool
In nature, all organisms compete with each other for resources in order to survive. Competition between members of the same species is what makes organisms evolve. This theory of competition and ‘survival of the fittest’ is called Natural Selection, and was originally proposed by Charles Darwin in his book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859. Darwin observed that within a species, different individuals show wide degrees of variation. He proposed that individuals with characteristics most suited to their environment are more likely to survive, reproduce, and pass on these characteristics. Meanwhile, individuals that are less well adapted to their environment might not survive and reproduce. Their less well adapted characteristics will eventually become removed from the population. This process causes species to change gradually, and enables new species to eventually emerge. After it was published, “On the Origin of Species” caused a storm of controversy and Charles Darwin was ridiculed, but his theory of natural selection is now widely accepted. During the twentieth century we discovered that the characteristics of an organism that are passed from one generation to the next are controlled by genes. Scientists were then able to explain Darwin’s theory of natural selection in terms of the selection of favourable genes. Natural selection can directly impact humans when it comes to treating disease. Discovery of the antibiotic penicillin in 1928 was lauded as a great advance in therapeutic medicine, and it soon became widely used. However, within just a few years some bacteria could withstand the effects of penicillin - they had adapted a resistance to the antibiotic. These “fitter” bacteria survived, and in the late 20th century bacterial populations began to emerge that were resistant to penicillin. Nowadays, antibiotics are used more sparingly and scientists are attempting to find other ways to treat infections. SUBSCRIBE to the FuseSchool YouTube channel for many more educational videos.
