from @underwaterhub – Michigan man discovers glowing, florescent rocks called “Yooperlites” 😍
Erik Rintamaki discovered a rock that glows under an ultraviolet light made of a mineral never seen before in Michigan. Without knowing what they were or why the rocks glowed, he named them “Yooperlites”. Rintamaki says it all started in 2017 when he went out on a beach in Lake Superior with a UV light and discovered tons of these glowing rocks.
To the naked eye, they look like gray rocks, but under the UV light, the mineral composite makes the rocks glow

How much do you know about a Hermit Crab?

no thumb

@oceanshot – This is so cool ! 😍
Hermit crabs are crustaceans. They have jointed limbs, claws, a hard exoskeleton, eyes on stalks, and two sets of antennae.
#AnimalFact : Crabs interact with each other and are often found in large groups. Marine hermit crabs live in the ocean and land hermit crabs live primarily on land 🦀
The hermit crab is not like other crabs. The hermit crab’s abdomen does not have a hard covering. To protect the abdomen, a hermit crab inhabits an empty snail shell.
The shell also stores water for the crab. Hermit crabs have gills that need to remain moist in order for them to breath

Caucasian Nature Girl Sara Underwood Acknowledges the injustice done to blacks who were enslaved.

Obyoriji.com

from @saraunderwood – On my recent trip to the Bahamas it was impossible to not feel humbled by the beauty of the islands. It was equally impossible to not feel humbled by the history of the islands that have some of their roots in slavery. Don’t mistake my feeling humbled for “white guilt”. It is not guilt, it is fact, that white people, maybe even my ancestors, captured people from Africa, forced them into bondage and brought them to this very spot. It is not guilt, it is fact, that police brutality and systemic racism towards people with black and brown skin is a serious problem in the United States to this day. It is not guilt, it is fact, that I as a white person have benefited from this systemic racism even though I am not a willing participant in it. If you are white and you acknowledge these realities, don’t let people dismiss it as white guilt. Speak the truth and ally yourself with causes that fight for the justice we all deserve. This piece, “Genesis” by Antonius Roberts and Tyrone Ferguson is a profound monument to the past, present, and future. Happy New Year.

Culture Upheld:  Minister of youths and sports, Dalung attends a native carnival in style.

famousblogng-1546177369593

Simply saying culture should be upheld by our generation is not enough. Action will always speak louder, especially by our  leaders who have so many youths a looking upto them.

This is the impressive case of the  Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Dalung as he stepped out for a cultural carnival yesterday in Plateau state. Showing just how much beauty culture holds within itself.

Without no shame or resentment towards the proud culture of his people, the Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Lalung,  stepped right out yesterday December 29th 2018 . He attended the 2018 Tarok cultural carnival which held in Langtang South local government area in Plateau state.

His presence in that cultural event definitely promoted the willingness of youths to join in, in culture.

A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian named after President Trump

guardian_us-1545492664912

@guardian_us – No, really. A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian is to be officially named Dermophis donaldtrumpi, in recognition of the president’s climate change denial. The name was chosen by the boss of EnviroBuild, a sustainable building materials company, who paid $25,000 at an auction for the right. Aidan Bell said the small legless creature’s ability to bury its head in the ground matched Trump’s approach to global warming.

Extinction: Thousands of Lions, Leopards and Elephants killed by humans summed up.

-1544977485525

@jemu_mwenda – A LIE IN:

KILL TO SAVE
Am only a few years old,but one of the injustices i have found with us humans,is when we place money in the hands of people to get a right to kill an animal,Not for anything else but to satisfy our ego.With all the greed and rapacity with men,it’s channel of benefiting off the blood of innocent beings,Drowned in prejudice and ego the killers carry away the “skulls” don’t assume I don’t know they call it trophy,to hang in their walls that reminds them of their commitment to increase the extinction of species.

The members of a species that are strong,healthy and carry strong genetic traits are targeted,Loads of cash paid and trigger pulled to bring them down,to the hunting firms and it’s affiliates they regard the returns support conservation precisely the communities,something I utterly disagree.Hunting for these reasons is one of the ways to prove mans crookedness and his inability to correctly handle what he was mandated to protect.

The only justice for sport-hunting would be if the quarry itself received the cash and sighed to die to save others,which isn’t possible.Their rights and justice being held in the hands of those who claim to own them.In the 19ths century there where hundreds of rhinos roaming and they thought careful introduction of such a sport would be fun,animals would just be shot at and their ferocity due to the pain of bullets and arrows gave them titles as the “big five”

Now today I and my colleagues wake up everyday to watching these last two Rhinos known of their kind.Ashamedly even as of now this vice of hunting still continues,Having witnessed the dark side of extinction I wish such people could swallow their ego and stop killing a being that can never defend itself.When you pay that money and pull that trigger,you undermine the rights of their existence,apparently their justice will be spoken in ways unheard by us! And it will be fatal.
May the Trophies on their wall hang to ashame and always remind them that they are murderers.
The greatest shame on a man/woman is when one has to kill a voiceless being to quench their ego,how would a human dare to prove ego to an animal literary.

October Visitor: Finland University bird, migrates to Jigawa for the winter.

instablog9ja-1541164413176

These birds cover distances that a plane collect thousands of hard currency to reach, except that this one took a  serious risk by coming to this part of the world instead of hitting it to a different part. I guess in this cold winter,  Africa is a good place to travel to for warmth. This whole goodness centers around a Western Osprey (Pandion Haliaetus) owned by the University of Helsinki, Finland, which we aren’t yet sure if it escaped or simply was let into the wild. But a good head on the neck individual  has released it into the wild after being caught in Jigawa State.

According to one Abubakar S. Ringim, a Zoologist, the bird was caught on 25/10/2018, at Malam Madori, Jigawa. A tracker found on it, showed that it left Finland, 109 days earlier and had covered 5808km during it’s winter migration. (How determined is that?)

However, after being celebrated by the locals, it was released at the Baturiya Wetland Reserve in Jigawa, for it to have a safe winter exit from Finland and summer time in Nigeria. We only hope it is smart enough to simply stick to the trees and don’t bother hopping on the ground, which might lead to its demise.  We wish you a hassle free stay here birdie.

Breaking: 14 lives lost to deadly Haiti earthquake

images

A 5.9-magnitude earthquake struck off the northwest coast of Haiti late Saturday, killing at least 14 people, injuring more than 130 others and damaging homes in the poverty-stricken Caribbean nation, authorities said.

The epicenter of the quake was located about 19 kilometers (12 miles) northwest of the city of Port-de-Paix, the US Geological Survey reported.

President Jovenel Moise said he and Prime Minister Jean-Henry Ceant had reached “the zone affected by the earthquake to bring assistance to the population” and coordinate relief efforts.

He had said earlier he was headed to Port-de-Paix and another quake-hit city, Gros-Morne, about 50 kilometers to the southeast.

“I congratulate the citizens for their show of solidarity and support,” Moise said in a Twitter message, vowing to ensure that the government was doing everything possible to help victims.

The quake, which was felt across the country, struck at 8:10 pm (0010 GMT Sunday) at a shallow depth of 11.7 kilometers.

Government spokesmen said that 14 people had been reported dead so far, eight of them in Port-de-Paix, the capital of Haiti’s Nord-Ouest department, and four others in Gros-Morne.

Haiti’s civil protection agency put the preliminary number of injured at 188.

– Memories of 2010 –

Two minor aftershocks were registered, the agency said, adding that no tsunami warning was issued.

The town of Chansolme and the small island of Tortuga also suffered damage, officials said.

The tremor rattled the capital Port-de-Prince, sparking fear among residents still reeling from the massive 2010 earthquake that left at least 200,000 people dead and 300,000 more injured.

“I urge the population to remain calm,” President Moise said in a tweet Saturday.

Some of the injuries were sustained when people panicked after the quake, the civil protection agency said.

The agency confirmed that some homes were destroyed or damaged, without offering specific figures.

The Nord-Ouest department is the poorest part of impoverished Haiti, with many areas isolated due to the dire state of the roads.

– Sifting through debris –

There was an unusual buzz of activity, however, at the site in Gros-Morne where a community center had collapsed. Residents using saws or their bare hands scrambled to recover metal support rods from the debris for resale, before being chased away by authorities.

The building’s guard, who was sleeping at the time of the quake, was killed.

A woman watching the scene, 49-year-old Rosette Jerome, said no one in her neighborhood had been killed “but a child was seriously injured when a piece of the wall fell on it.”

The devastating 7.0-magnitude quake that struck in January 2010 left more than 1.5 million people homeless. Tens of thousands remain in makeshift camps.

The damage caused was worth an estimated 120 percent of GDP in Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Longer-term reconstruction has been hampered by lingering political chaos in the nation of nearly 11 million people, and by a deadly cholera epidemic introduced by infected Nepalese UN peacekeepers sent in after the quake.

Wild Fire once again starts a desasterous move in California.

guardian-1533994528909

In what was expected but not to this extent,the summer  wild fire of California comes right back to end the summer of 2018.

According you Guardian news 2,000 people in California are now under mandatory evacuation orders after the state’s largest ever wildfire destroyed thousands of acres of land and property. The total number of fires in California hasn’t actually increased in recent decades, but what global warming has done is caused the character of wildfires to change, with flames spreading more rapidly and with greater intensity.

I hope no life gets lost this time around,  and that people don’t  get devastated  to an unbearable extent by this. God bless them all

Nigerians experienced an insignificant Lunar Eclipse last night.

instablog9ja-1532643577167

Total lunar eclipse or rather ‘blood moon’ will be experienced, tomorrow, in Nigeria from 6:44pm to 9:21pm

A ‘blood moon’ happens when Earth’s moon is in full eclipse and has no special astronomical significance, rather, the view in the sky is striking as the usually whitish moon becomes red or ruddy-brown. .

According to the Science News, Nigeria will experience total lunar eclipse, which would be is fully visible in Lagos. .

The total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon, as the moon turns red. Friday’s total lunar eclipse will be longest blood moon visible this century, until 2123.

Yet another important animal gets killed in Nigeria.

IMG_20180630_082517_840

The other times it has been a whale, a chimpanzee, abd an Elephant and now the Hippopotamus?  When will  they realise that these animals are a national treasure, and stop eating them. I understand that there is poverty in the land,  and people will have to imagine how much meat they can get from these wild animals,  but this is becoming too Rampant.  Killing all these animals is not the best way to go about it. Tourism will do us  more justice than the consumption. This is bad, because while others are protecting these animals, we are here eating them into extinction. This is horrible.
