  1. Which one? It seems they are discovering a new coronavirus strain every other day. I just hope the vaccines will be effective against these new covid-19 virus strains. Andit just goes to show that we will have to learn to live with the coronavirus and it many different versions.
  2. I think it's fairly good, given the circumstances. But it's obvious that people are getting tired of the recommendations and restrictions.

  6. Sure, there are less sunlight in colder regions. But solar panels work great in these places as well! Believe it or not, but the cold and snow in these regions actually help the solar panels in various ways, such as cleaning the panels when the snow melts, the increased reflection of light off white snow helps increase the output, and even the cold helps increase the efficiency of the actual panels, and so on. And yes, there might be long nights in the arctic regions during the winter, but solar power in the North is not only possible, but also profitable.

  8. That's so true! I use a PC that I've built myself so that I can repair it and swap out parts when needed.
  9. I've never heard about that before. How does that work?

    Garlic Mushrooms

    These garlic mushrooms look so delicious! This is what you need: Mushrooms Unsalted butter — use unsalted to control the amount of salt added. Olive oil — just a little oil added to the butter gets them nice and crispy on the outer edges and prevents the butter from burning. Garlic — please use fresh where you can. Herbs — we love parsley and thyme, but you can use oregano, rosemary, basil, etc. Salt and pepper. Optional: Onion — green, red, yellow or white! This is an optional ingredient BUT I find it enhances the garlic flavour.

  15. Check out Terra Nil, which is a cute little strategy game that lets you transform a dead wasteland into a green and ecological paradise - in 8-bit (or 16?) graphics. It's free to download and you can play it on Windows, macOS, and Linux. Check out some gameplay videos: And some more gameplay: What do you think? Have you played it? The game seems pretty simplistic both in gameplay and its solutions to the environmental destruction (science and technology will just magically clean everything up and all the wildlife will just come back to life) - but he
  16. To combat the coronavirus (Covid-19) many countries are spraying public spaces in cities with disinfection chemicals. After seeing this I was interested in knowing how effective this was against the coronavirus and if it had any negative effects on our health or environment. And according to experts, these mass disinfection programmes have no real benefit - and could potentially be a health hazard. Dr Jason Wang, the director of the Center for Policy, Outcomes and Prevention at Stanford University, says that the use of disinfectant sprays may be of some psychological comfort to people bu
  17. Populations of all kinds of wildlife are declining at an alarming speed. If we don't stop this, scientist warns that humanity could soon be left with a planet bereft of actual wildlife and only inhabited by ourselves and a few domesticated animals. In an effort to stop such a grim future from happening, some conservationists are proposing a radical solution: make 50% of the planet a nature reserve. “That may seem a lot – if you think the world is a just a place for humans to exploit,” Harvey Locke from the organisation Nature Needs Half said. “But if you recognise the world as one that we
  18. Outbreaks of infectious diseases such as Ebola, Sars, bird flu and now the coronavirus (Covid-19) are on the rise. These infectious diseases are crossing from animals to humans and, as we can see from Covid-19, can spread quickly to new places around the world with extreme health and economic impacts in both rich and poor countries. "I am not at all surprised about the coronavirus outbreak," said disease ecologist Thomas Gillespie to the Guardian. "The majority of pathogens are still to be discovered. We are at the very tip of the iceberg." 'Tip of the iceberg': is ou
  19. Several videos and images posted on social media has shown how wildlife is starting to come back to Venice as the city is on lockdown due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. The videos show how the absence of motorised transport which normally churns up the muddy canal floor has turned the waters of Venice into a calm and crystal-clear lagoon filled with fish and dolphins. "The water is blue and clear," said Gloria Beggiato who owns the celebrated Metropole Hotel a few steps from St Mark’s square to the Guardian. "It is calm like a pond, because there are no more waves caused by motorised
  20. This was a beautiful video posted by the Dodo which shows two wild horses being reunited after 6 months apart. This video was also a horrifying eye-opener as I did not know that the US government is systematically capturing wild horses and keeping them in small pens for several months before they are being sold off. Why are they doing something like that?!
  21. I just stumbled upon this tweet and video which shows three turtles and even a bird stuck together in a discarded old fishing net. Luckily, they were all saved and set free when some people found them drifting around in the sea. But the tweet reminded me of how extremely deadly these “ghost gear” that are floating around and pollution our oceans actually are. Some call these dumped and discarded nets, lines, and traps for “ghost gear”, which is a rather fitting name for this deadly waste. A recent report by Greenpeace has shed some light on this deadly and growing problem. The report
  22. Oh, so you're tired of isolation and lockdown? Yeah, your life must be really awful right now. Surely YOU must suffer tremendously.
  23. Last month was the hottest September ever recorded globally since the 19th century, according to new figures from EU's observation program Copernicus. Previously, both January and May this year also saw record-breaking global temperatures. And despite La Niña cooling down large parts of the world, global temperatures in 2020 are currently in line with 2016 which was the warmest year ever measured in modern times. "There is currently little difference between 2020 and 2016 for the year-to-date," Copernicus senior scientist Freja Vambourg told AFP. Overall, 19 of the past 20 years have been the
