TOURISM My most interesting topic was absolutely tourism. It was the topic I enjoyed and caught my attention. One may ask what is tourism? Well tourism is any activity that involves the movement of people away from their homes to other places of interest for leisure, pleasure or studies. The commonly visited areas as such are wild life conservation areas, historical sites, museums and beaches, just to mention a few. What made me interested in this topic? First and foremos...

Climate in a narrow sense is usually defined as the "average weather," or more rigorously, as the statistical description in terms of the mean and variability of relevant quantities over a period of time ranging from months to thousands of years. The classical period is 3 decades, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). These quantities are most often surface variables such as temperature, precipitation, and wind. Climate in a wider sense is the state, including...

The road many Londoners have now dubbed TOXford Street, is in the limelight for having the highest levels of pollution in Europe and possibly the world. London's (in)famous shopping district popular with locals and tourist alike has unacceptably high levels of Nitrogen Dioxide. And it's not hard to see why, take a stroll down Oxford Street (albeit whilst holding your breath) and you'll notice the endless streams of red busses, broken only by the odd black cab. As the summer...

In this modern 21st century, money has become the part of human life. Money in the world is a factor for friendship or enemity; co-operation or war as well as development & destruction too. Money has become the symbol for status & power. Really, money is an important part of human life if we use it properly because the negative aspects about money such as - enemies, war, destruction, or discrimination occur because of human ego & human greed, not all itself by money....

About 10 years ago, I remember myself in a classroom full of small boys and girls. I vividly remember my environmental science teacher, a Mrs. Mutale, she always teased us to plant trees as small as ourselves. So that when the trees grow big like her, they are used to make all the small things that were in our classroom, starting from the small desks that we sat on, the small chalk board in front of us, the small books and pencils, including our small uniforms that we wore. Without even botherin...

“Nature Protects if She is Protected” was the motto of the biggest ever environmental conference held in India, the United Nations Conference of Parties 11 (COP11) in 2012. Seemingly, the Government of India has forgotten to practice before it preaches. It is now undeniable that the disaster in Uttarakhand, India which occurred exactly a year ago was waiting to happen, thanks to the utter callousness of authorities and an untimely monsoon spell which took the nation by surpri...

It’s a dismal scene. The playground, which was created to bring joy and entertainment to crowds of children, stands empty in the golden August evening. Determined layers of weeds have taken over the hiking trails. Remaining completely still, the water in the local lake appears to be entirely untouched. Once these arenas were outdoor paradises for young people. The great outdoors once echoed with sound of young people making memories and appreciating the immense beauty of nature....

A movie about lemurs in Madagascar was recently made. I was astonished to find out from people overseas who share their interest for these cute primates. Indeed, an American primatologist does fight for the conservation of their habitat. Thus, I was wondering why Malagasy did not act the same way. The answer is that we have a terrible dilemma: should we protect the lemurs or should we give families a chance to live? On one hand, Malagasy families live under the exploitation...
