We all know that the easter island heads have bodies – that’s not a mystery at all. But but how did the easter island population build hundreds of statues? Scientists have recently solved this mystery and discovered where these people disappeared to and why.
Global warming, and climate change, is a subject which shows zero sign of cooling down. Here’s the lowdown on why it’s occurring, what’s inflicting it, and the way it may well modify the planet.
Is It Taking place?
Yes. Earth is currently screening numerous symbols of worldwide climate change.
• Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) all over the world since 1880, a good bit of this in recent decades, in accordance with NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
• The interest rate of warming is rising. The 20th century’s last twenty years seem to have been the hottest in 400 years and possibly the warmest for numerous millennia, according to various climate studies. And the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the previous 12 years may be among the many dozen warmest since 1850.
• The Arctic is feeling the consequences the most. Average temperatures in Alaska, western Canada, in addition to eastern Russia have risen at double the global average, according to the multinational Arctic Climate Effect Assessment report compiled within 2000 and 2004.
• Arctic ice is rapidly disappearing, and the district may have the first of all wholly ice-free summer by 2040 or even earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already tormented by the sea-ice damage.
• Glaciers and mountain snows are speedily melting—for instance, Montana’s Glacier National Park presently possess only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910. Inside the Northern Hemisphere, thaws also come a week earlier in spring and even freezes start a week later.
Is Human beings Inflicting It?
The report, based on the effort of some 2,500 scientists in additional comparing to 130 countries, concluded that humans have brought on all or most of the current planetary warming. Human-caused global warming is often known as anthropogenic climate change.
• Industrialization, deforestation, as well as pollution have intensely increased atmospheric concentrations of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, as well as nitrous oxide, all greenhouse gases that help block warmth close Earth’s surface.
• People are pouring carbon dioxide to the atmosphere much quicker than plants and oceans might absorb it.
• These gases persist in the surroundings for years, that means that even if the mentioned emissions have been eliminated now, it might not instantly finish global warming.
• Many professionals indicate that organic cycles in Earth’s orbit might change the planet’s hype to sunlight, which might clarify the current model. Earth have certainly experienced warming and cooling cycles harshly every hundred thousand years because of those orbital shifts, but such alterations have occurred along the span of several centuries. Today’s alterations have taken place over the past hundred years or fewer.
What’s Going to Happen?
A follow-up describe warned that global warming could lead on to large-scale food and water shortages and still have catastrophic effects on nature.
• Sea level could mount within 7 and 23 inches (18 to 59 centimeters) by means of century’s end. Rises of just four inches (10 centimeters) might flood a number of South Seas islands and swamp big parts of Southeast Asia.
• Glaciers around the world could melt, inflicting sea levels to rise while creating water shortages in areas depending on runoff for clean water.
• Powerful hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, wildfires, as well as other natural disasters may turn out to be conventional in many parts of the world. The expansion of deserts may also cause food shortages in lots of areas.
• More than 1 000 000 species face extinction from disappearing territory, changing ecosystems, and acidifying oceans

Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing illegal industries in the world, with the Council of Europe attesting that it accounts for international revenue of $ 42.5 billion annually. But what is human trafficking? There are several different definitions, but the broadest and most general is the illegal movement of people. That is, moving human beings for the intent of anything ranging from forced labor to getting around immigration laws to prostitution. But because of the amount of money generated by the industry, and because of the long history of human trafficking, it will be very difficult to effectively combat the problem.
Because many of the world’s most prosperous countries have rather rigid immigration laws (for example, America’s quota system), there is a big industry in circumventing these laws and bringing people into the country illegally. These human smugglers are able to charge high prices for their expertise, so the racket has become quite lucrative. Just as governments employ expert professionals to keep illegal immigrants out, illegal immigrants are now able to employ expert professionals to help them get in.
Slavery is an enormous international business that requires human trafficking to operate. Forced labor is used extensively in the developing world, often in factories or for mass manual labor purposes. Human traffickers will often round up laborers either forcibly or through false promises of pay and benefits. To desperately impoverished and uneducated people, these promises are often tempting enough to take. Traffickers will usually move them across borders, where foreign companies keep them de facto enslaved.
“White slavery,” as it is called, is one of the biggest money-makers under the human trafficking umbrella. According to research funded by the United States Government, nearly 80% of all people illegally trafficked across borders are women, about half of whom are minors, a high percentage of whom are made to submit to forced prostitution. Naturally, due to the illegal nature of white slavery, it is impossible to make an accurate estimate of the number of women and children forced into such a degrading life.
The criminals who run these prostitution rings usually have a front business such as a modeling or travel agency which they use to dupe unsuspecting women into trusting them. They are then moved to their new country and kept essentially enslaved to their employers. As difficult as it may be to believe, this happens even in the United States and other Western nations.

One of the most important considerations in a nutritional protocol is the body’s hydration levels. Our bodies are mainly made up of water with our brain being comprised of 75% water, our blood being 92% water and our muscles being 75% water. Most people are chronically dehydrated and this affects every process in the body including the ability to digest food Research has shown that around 75% of our hunger pangs are signals of thirst with mild dehydration slowing your metabolism by as much as 3%. I highly recommend that you drink at least eight glasses of pure water every day. Drink a glass of water within 30 minutes of waking up, since you become slightly dehydrated through the night. Avoid drinking too much water while eating as this can dilute stomach acid and impair digestion and absorption of foods. Water is also needed to detoxify the body so when you are dehydrated your ability to eliminate toxins will be reduced and as a consequence this can lead to you holding on to excessive body fat.
Another great investment on the nutrition front is to convert to organic foods. It may seem a little expensive at first but in return for your health and we11 being it is a small price to pay. Not only is organic food free from chemical pesticides, preservatives, hormones and antibiotics it also has a much higher levels of nutrients than commercially farmed foods. The body needs easily accessible high quality nutrients every day to run itself. These nutrients are much more available in organic foods and also in much greater amounts.
It is also very important with regards to nutrients to not only get good quality foods but also to eat a diverse range of foods. This variety of food selection increases your chances of receiving the correct nutrients for your body to operate. If you only eat a restricted number of foods then your body only receives the nutrients available from those foods. Most people only eat about 15 different foods on a weekly basis and only get a limited amount of nutrients from these foods. By increasing your selection of foods you receive a wider variety of nutrients. Variety in food selection is also important in preventing food intolerances. Food intolerances develop when the body is exposed to the same foods so often that the immune system responds as if there is an invader present such as a bacteria or a virus. When this happens constantly it will deplete your immune system leaving you susceptible to further infections and can also be responsible for symptoms as varied as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and chronic headaches. A common problem among people today is wheat or gluten intolerance. The proteins in wheat and other grain products upset the gut lining and provoke an immune response which can lead to degenerative processes. As wheat products are so prevalent in the Western diet, complete or even temporary abstinence from it can provide promising results. Safe alternatives to these grains include corn, rice, buckwheat and millet.
Processed foods are always best to be avoided. Most of the vital nutrients are lost in the processing and have to be synthetically added back in. Anything that is fortified or has vitamins added in means everything of any use was destroyed in the processing. Processed fats and sugars cause particular problems in the body. Hydrogenated fats found in ready meals, margarines, fat replacement products and many sauces have been artificially altered to preserve their shelf life, a process that makes them harmful to your cells. They resemble healthy fats making it difficult for your cells to distinguish the two apart. They cannot perform the desired function within the cell and open the door to significant health problems. Refined sugars found in most foods tax the body because they convert to glucose very quickly in the blood causing the body to produce insulin. As well as lowering blood sugar, insulin promotes fat storage which is why a diet high in refined sugars and processed foods makes you fat. It is also the main cause of Adult Onset Diabetes where the pancreas, the organ that produces insulin, gets so exhausted that it eventually has to make poor quality insulin which is ineffective and leads to diabetes and weight gain. It is vitally important to control blood sugar levels for this reason throughout the day. I strongly suggest you eat before you become hungry and have sensible snacks during the day to stop your blood sugar levels from dropping too much.
With regard to the correct balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates at each meal every single person is different. While one ratio may be correct for one person, it may have no effect on another and be downright dangerous for a third. We are all as different internally as we are externally and this needs to be reflected in our food weightings. Each meal should contain a balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates at every sitting with the exact ratios being individually specific. Listening to your body is an easy way to see if you have the balance right. If after an hour of eating a meal you feel energetic, bright and mentally alert chances are that you are close to your individual ratio. If, however, you feel hungry, lethargic and mentally tired then the food balance was inappropriate for you. Most people live on a diet that is high in refined sugars (or carbohydrates), high in processed fats, which are of no use anyway, and low in good quality proteins. By reducing carbohydrate intake through cutting down on refined sugars and processed foods and eating good quality proteins and fats most people will feel significantly better. Sensible sources of fats and proteins include oily fish, lean meats, nuts, seed and organic dairy produce. Great sources of non refined carbohydrates are fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. By experimenting to find your personal fuel mix you will feel nutritional fulfilment, sustained energy and glowing health.
It is vitally important, particularly if you are trying to lose weight, to not cut calorie consumption. When you do the body thinks it is starving and stores fat as a self protective mechanism. This is backed up by the statistics that show that around 90% of all people who go on a calorie restricted diet gain all the weight back within a year and most gain more. This is because as humans we are self protecting organisms and during famine, which is what calorie restriction is, we produce fat storing enzymes. On these protocols initial weight loss comes through loss of body t1uid and muscle mass. Eventually the body breaks down its own tissue to survive and you sacrifice your health in that you become malnourished or you return to your normal eating habits with an increased number of fat storing enzymes and gain even more weight. It is important when trying to lose weight to eat enough calories so your body doesn’t produce these fat storing enzymes. With regular exercise you will create a negative calorific balance and weight loss will begin. Your exact number of calories will depend on your size, your metabolic rate and your activity levels. Without overeating, again experiment to find the right amount of food for your body to run it’s everyday processes. If you feel hungry, lethargic or irritable then chances are you’re starving yourself so up your calorie intake until you feel it is correct.
By taking all these points on board you will work towards losing any excess weight in the form of body fat, promote lean muscle tissue development and dramatically improve your health status. You will enjoy increased physical energy and mental clarity and greatly increase your chances of avoiding disease and degeneration.
The topic of Immigration – including Illegal Immigrants, Refugees or Migrants – provokes an incredibly strong reaction from many different people. With Donald Trumps’ rapid rise in American politics and his controversial statements about Illegal Immigrants – many people are letting their ideology trump facts, reason and evidence. This presentation is the first in a series which looks to dispel the myths about Immigrants – and aims to separate the facts from the fiction with strict data analysis.
Why are people so concerned about Immigration in the United States of America? Who is coming into the United States both legally and illegally – and how has it changed over time? Are Illegal Immigrants able to vote? How do Immigrants impact electoral politics? Do Immigrants favor big government or smaller government? How do their political positions change over time – are Immigrants friends of freedom?

In good economic times or bad, the typical poor family with children is supported by only 800 hours of work during a year: That amounts to 16 hours of work per week. If work in each family were raised to 2,000 hours per year-the equivalent of one adult working 40 hours per week throughout the year- nearly 75 percent of poor children would be lifted out of official poverty.
Father absence is another major cause of child poverty. Nearly two-thirds of poor children reside in single-parent homes; each year, an additional 1.5 million children are born out of wedlock. If poor mothers married the fathers of their children, almost three-quarters would immediately be lifted out of poverty.
Each year, the U.S. imports, through both legal and illegal immigration, hundreds of thousands of additional poor persons from abroad. As a result, one-quarter of all poor persons in the U.S. are now first-generation immigrants or the minor children of those immigrants. Roughly one in ten of the persons counted among the poor by the Census Bureau is either an illegal immigrant or the minor child of an illegal.
In the late 1990s, the United States established a reasonable record in reducing child poverty. Successful anti-poverty policies were partially implemented in the welfare reform legislation of 1996, which replaced the old Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program with a new program called Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF).
In general, children born and raised outside marriage are seven times more likely to live in poverty than are children born and raised by married couples.
“Religion has a big influence on giving patterns,” said the Chronicle. “Regions of the country that are deeply religious are more generous than those that are not.”
— Although liberal families’ incomes average 6 percent higher than those of conservative families, conservative-headed households give, on average, 30 percent more to charity than the average liberal-headed household (,600 per year vs. ,227).
— Conservatives also donate more time and give more blood.
— Residents of the states that voted for John Kerry in 2004 gave smaller percentages of their incomes to charity than did residents of states that voted for George Bush.
— Bush carried 24 of the 25 states where charitable giving was above average.
— In the 10 reddest states, in which Bush got more than 60 percent majorities, the average percentage of personal income donated to charity was 3.5. Residents of the bluest states, which gave Bush less than 40 percent, donated just 1.9 percent.
— People who reject the idea that “government has a responsibility to reduce income inequality” give an average of four times more than people who accept that proposition.
Democrats represent a majority of the wealthiest congressional districts, and half of America’s richest households live in states where both senators are Democrats.
