Rising temperatures will cause more deaths than all infectious diseases – study


Rising temperatures are set to cause particular devastation in poorer, hotter parts of the world that will struggle to adapt to unbearable conditions that will kill increasing numbers of people, the research has found.

The economic loss from the climate crisis, as well as the cost of adaptation, will be felt around the world, including in wealthy countries.

Kial mi lernas Esperanton? | Why am I learning Esperanto?


| esperanto | anglan |
|----|----|
|Ĉi-jare mi eklernis Esperanto. Mi komencis lerni ĝin pro scivolemo kaj mi tre ŝatas lerni ĝin. Mi lernas ĝin en la angla, kiu ne estas mia gepatra lingvo. Do mi lernas du lingvojn samtempe... La sekva citaĵo resonanta kun mia mondvido klarigas kial mi sentas, ke Esperanto estas mia vera lingvo: | This year I started learning Esperanto. I started learning it out of curiosity and I really like learning it. I learn it in English which is not my native language. So I learn two language at the same time... The following quote resonating with my worldview explains why I feel that Esperanto is my true language:|
| "La interna ideo de #Esperanto estas: sur neŭtrala lingva fundamento forigi la murojn inter la gentoj kaj alkutimigadi la homojn, ke ĉiu el ili vidu en sia proksimulo nur homon kaj fraton." -- L.L.Zamenhof, 1912 (lernu.net) | "The internal idea of #Esperanto is: the foundation of a neutral language will help break down barriers between peoples and help people get used to the idea that each one of them should see their neighbors only as a human being and a brother." -- L.L.Zamenhof, 1912 (lernu.net)|

Happy #World Emoji Day 🙂

Does somebody still remembers Zapf Dingbats, in times of Emoji? I do, and I remember my excitement when I first discovered them in the 1980s.

Stray Dog Joins Climbers On Dangerous Trek, Gets to the Top with Them, Sets Dog World Record

#Dogs are still cool.

New York Post:

A #stray-dog tagged along with a team of #mountaineers, following them up to the top of the 23,389-foot #peak in #Nepal’s #Himalayas – a first in the #canine world.

#Mera, a 45-pound Nepalese #mutt thought to be a cross between a #Tibetan #mastiff and a #Himalayan #sheepdog, became the #first #dog ever to reach the #summit of #Baruntse on Nov. 9 last year, according to Outside magazine.

#BilliBierling of the Himalayan Database, an organization that #documents climbing #expeditions in Nepal, told the #magazine that #Mera’s feat could be the #highest-recorded #elevation ever reached by a #dog anywhere in the #world.

“I am not aware of a dog actually summiting an expedition peak in Nepal,” Bierling said.
Mera didn’t have any #training to prepare her for the expedition, but that didn’t stop her from tagging along to #keep her new #friends #safe.


The four-legged #climber had joined a team led by #mountain #guide #DonWargowsky of #Seattle on the tenth day of their strenuous month-long #expedition to the peak.

The mountaineers were descending from a successful summit of #MeraPeak when the #dog – who they had seen a few days earlier – decided to join them at 17,500 feet.

At first it seemed like the expedition members only tolerated #Mera because of #Wargowsky’s taking to her, but the #pooch quickly #impressed the team with her impressive #climbing #skills, according to the mag.

“They’d never seen anything like this happen. They said she was a special dog, that she brought #luck to the expedition,” Wargowsky told the outlet. “Some even thought she was #blessed.”

At one point, however, Wargowsky said Mera spent two nights at one camp out in the open, alone on the #glacier in the #bitter #cold.

“I was certain she was going to die up there,” he said.

But the dog #prevailed, and trailed along with the team as they worked their way up to 22,500-feet before going back to the base camp.

“Imagine that instead of crampons, you have claws,” Wargowsky said. “Her feet were bloodied. She had busted knuckles and broken toenails. It was hard to see.”

During the trek, Wargowsky had tied Mera up at camp so she couldn’t follow them back up the mountain, but the canine chewed through the #rope, catching up with the team less than a half-hour later.

“She just tucked in right behind me,” Wargowsky told the magazine. “And it’s not like I could leave the clients to take her back, so it meant she was going with us.”

There was a close call along the way.

Mera was ahead of Wargowsky when she started to #slip, and a quick-thinking Wargowsky #hung onto a fixed line on the #mountain with one hand and #grabbed #Mera with the other as he #prevented her from #falling 600-feet, according to the magazine.

But that didn’t stop the dog from continuing on with the team.
Nothing will really stop dogs from continuing on with us.

Our #relationship with them may not look very necessary today, but it certainly was #necessary in the #past. #Dogs would keep #guard at #night and let us know if another tribe was about to #attack, they’d detect #intruders, they’d help us #hunt, and they’d even help us #fight.

They #served us well, and we should #return the #favor by #treating them #fairly now that most of their services are no longer required by most people.

You never now when you may need them again.

The #comfort of #modernity may not last forever.




If you have a #canine #companion close to you, maybe #pet them for a bit while you tell them the #tale of #Mera setting a dog #world-record.

Or better yet, #high-five them.

How To Get #Vaccinated Without Your #Parent's Permission


A #vaccination can save your #life. Simple as. But a number of young #people are being denied the opportunity of being immunized because of their parent’s hostility towards vaccinations. While the " #anti- vax movement" remains totally discredited by #science, there has been a hugely damaging resurgence of these ideas in the age of #socialmedia.

Just recently, a #Twitter thread highlighted how #teens in the US are now searching for legal advice on #Reddit because they want to be #immunized against #deadly diseases, but their parents won't provide them with their consent.

Like any #medical treatment, receiving a #vaccine should only be undertaken if the #patient has a full understanding of the #procedure. Many #teenagers around the #world feel like they are #mature and informed enough to make this decision but are not legally considered an #adult yet, so the issue of #consent to medical procedures becomes tricky.

If you are under the age of 18 in the #US, #UK, #Canada, or #Australia (our four largest viewership areas), but you're unable to receive your parent or guardian's consent for a vaccination, here’s everything you need to know.
