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

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.

Plateau state has the best ground water in Nigeria

obyoriji-1527261609277

●Water●
It is even more confusing when some can’t quench your #thirst. I mean, #water has just that one job before getting into the body.one job. My favourite was EVA at one point, but got ultered when I realised that there are now fake ones out there being made in some unhygienic backyards, and sealed good enough to deceive the public. Nestle has that after taste that doesnt hit home for me. Probably too treated only trust the dispenser water at #home. The best Nigerian state with the most natural water has to be Plateau State. I visit my neighbour and look into her reservoir which by the way is always full to the brim, and I can see the very bottom. Plateau state to me has the very best ground water in Nigeria, with great underground rocks. No wonder it is a state that is constantly being fought for. Best climate,  best ground water, best living standard. #obyorijifitness💪 #obyorijiblog #obyoriji #fit #fitness #fit #obyoriji #obyorijifitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmom #fitnessgirl #Obyorijifitness #gymlifestyle #gymlife

lightning strikes Rwandan church killing 16.

images (1)

Some times we wonder if some things nature dishes out to us, are coincidental, or just a direct message to people of the world from God. Just like in this case of  a Rwandan church that was struck by lightning, killing at least 16 people, and leaving  dozens injured.

The church, a Seventh-Day Adventist church in Rwanda, was the sight of he unfortunate incident which took the life of  Fourteen victims on the spot.

“The lightning hit the church in the Nyaruguru district in the Southern Province on Saturday” local mayor Habitegeko Francois told AFP over the phone.

Two others died later from their injuries, he added.

He added that 140 people involved in the incident had been rushed to hospital and district health centres, but that many had already been discharged.

“Doctors say that only three of them are in critical condition but they are getting better,” he said.

According to the mayor, a similar accident took place on Friday when lightning struck a group of 18 students, killing one of them.

What is poking the weather of this Country?Is this natural or diabolical? Is someone using this to attack people, or just the climate change showing itself strong around the world. Are their buildings unearthed, or just a atmospheric balance. We wish a quick recovery to the injured, and condolences to the families of the victims who lost their lives.

Cheetah is the fastest and weakest of the Big Cats.

Cheetah

According to the super smart scientist who have studied these big cats for a very reasonable length of time, Cheetah runs up to 70 miles per hour,burns upto 1200 calories for each short  chase, Raising its body temperature so high that it takes upto 30minutes to cool off.  and uses its tail in a movement behind him in the arm for balance.

 

For the Cheetah, each function in the body has been adapted for speed. Large nostrils and lungs, to help him breathe large amounts of air time when he stretches and stretches,  and shrinks off when he folds up.  The heart is too big and the adrenal glands are built to function. The cheetah facts tail, which can be over 80 inches long, it helps to achieve balance, as it quickly turns with the movement of prey. He has very light bones and a small collar bone and shoulder blades help extend its vertical steps. Although it can reach very high speeds of up to 71 km / h in seconds, which can not be maintained for more than a minute, because it is very taxing to its physiology. At this point, it must have a mandatory rest for the body to cool.

Today, cheetah facts mostly remain in sub-Saharan Africa. A few years ago, were found in many parts of North Africa to India. Since they have many predators, they need to live in areas of tall grass, shrubs and large plants to provide shelter. As human clearer forest land for agriculture and occupation, the animals were severely affected and most are preceded or die of starvation and disease or migrate to other places to live. Most die before you get there. In India, they are completely extinguished if there are plans for reintroduction and captive breeding. An estimated four million years ago Cheetahs origin. This is long before the other big cats can be anywhere in the world. The oldest fossils found in North America, Texas, Nevada and Wyoming. They were also common in Africa, Asia and Europe until about 10,000 years ago. Induced climate change to be completely extinct in some of these places.

Very few remained, and it is claimed that inbreeding at the time they close to all the cheetah facts look alike. Drought is a serious problem, affecting the fastest animal on earth. Since this is a pure carnivore and do not eat carrion, to find a healthy grasp this time is usually very difficult. Most end up dying of hunger, while others are malnourished, even if they get caught are too weak and malnourished. The contracting authority the possibility of diseases currently are very high.

cheetah is carnivorous and thrive on fresh meat. He eats a wide variety of small animals and gazelles his best booty and impalas. Unlike other cats, it’s every day and hunt mostly in the early hours of the day or late afternoon. It builds longer term than the other way when it comes to prey. The beast is built for speed and that’s what it is based, during the hunt. This is a small cat weighs about 36 to 64 kg at full maturity. It kills its prey by suffocation. The trachea of ​​the victim input until it dies. Whether the prey is large or small, she eats quickly to avoid being attacked by other animals, and thus lose a well-deserved meal.

Cheetah facts creeps as close as possible to the desired prey. After about 50 meters from the prey, it will be full acceleration, which is more than 75 mph. These sticks never lasts more than a minute. For the most part, lasting about 20 seconds. Unlike other big cats, cheetahs can hunt more than 5500 meters to 72 km per hour. He has a big box, and use this space with an enlarged heart and lungs, which allows it to reach these incredible speeds. And ‘the fastest animal on earth.

Cheetah facts never eat carrion, or go back to kill. Do not eat the bones and the skin of his victim. The young are taught in six weeks and six months to hunt, the mother brings home live prey to kill them in practice.

Polished elegant and slender body weight varies from 100-150 kg Cheetah, and his long body and tail help speed chases. The hair is usually yellow tiny black specks throughout its length. The stomach, like most cats, is a blond. Evolutionary changes that enable the cheetah to produce incredible speed, among other things, with large nostrils, the heart and lungs (which allow a maximum of oxygenation during high speed chases), a large gland (and adrenaline!) Timon, like the tail (to stabilize, and quickly turning to smart, Thomson gazelle) and retractable claws (to provide “grip” on the field during the hunt).

Cheetah
Cheetah

Cheetah speed means that it can bring down prey that the predators, most do not even think about – Springbok is a wonderful by itself, and still can not dodge and a half times the Cheetah. Impala, rabbit, and wildebeests are often preyed pulled down only in pairs. The common approach is to stalk prey and approach as close as possible. When near a stained, Cheetah Chase begins – to achieve 0-100 km / h in three seconds, the Cheetah outclasses most modern cars – capable of 125 kmh feet, seems hardly touch the ground! When you bring down the prey, a powerful jaw muscles enable the cheetah to crush the tube when the wind let the victim’s nostrils to breathe at the same time, so it can hold on for a long time. At high speeds, this ring is also a great hunter, elevating the body temperature to dangerous levels.

Cheetah facts is an organized social structure, with males forming coalitions and women who hunt alone or with children. A large litter born after mating, which continues throughout the year, although a fraction of the puppies to survive, and are often killed by lions, leopards and hyenas. Maturity is reached in one year for males and females of two years after leaving his mother to establish his territory with a range that varies with habitat. Cheetah in fact prefer relatively open grasslands and are not very adaptable to changes in their environment.

Cheetahs have been known to be from the times when ancient Egypt was ruled by the pharaohs. An Egyptian pharaoh was a leader who believed that were half man and half god. Pharaoh was a famous Queen Cleopatra. That was the last pharaoh to rule Egypt. Cheetahs have remained close friends of the Egyptian pharaohs believed that because this elegant feline mind is that life after the Pharaohs. Statues and paintings of the royal tombs found that the symbols of this beautiful and elegant cat. Akbar the Great, the most successful Mughal emperor of India, is said to have a predilection for the Cheetah. It remained more than 1,000 during his reign of 49 years. The Emperor Charlemagne, also used these beautiful animals as a symbol of royalty and for hunting.

Cheetahs are often mistaken for the leopard because of the distance, its strengths and color of the skin looks much the same. Look closer and you will see the two that both are very different. Leopards do not have solid points. The spots on a leopard in a rosette pattern, which has a dark brown center and an outer ring. Leopards are more muscular and have shorter legs. The cheetah has long legs, small head and slender body. Furthermore, the retractable claws are leopards. Despite the clutches cheetah appears to be fully retractable, they are not and that is why these animals are considered semi-retractable claws. The fishing cat, flat headed cat Iriomote cat is known to have semi-retractable claws, too.Cheetah facts are the fastest land mammal in the world. They are definitely built for speed! Their long, powerful legs can range from 0-60 miles in seconds. Semi-retractable claws provide a better grip and control. Their lungs and nostrils big heart contributes much oxygen and exhale a lot of carbon dioxide. Once in activities faster, their long tails help them stay balanced and make tight turns. They have flexible spines, which acts almost like a rubber band and helps increase speed. As a football player would use oily eye black under the eyes to reduce glare from the sun, Cheetah facts also distinctive long black lines flow from the eyes to the mouth, which helps reduce glare from the sun as well and keeps the focus on animal prey.

Unlike other big cats, sounds that the cheetahs make are different. It can not roar, but can purr, bleating, hissing, chirping and growl. These sounds can be heard from a mile away. Sounds can be described as “Nyam-Nyam” to feed the cubs, “Ihn-NHI” mothers use to call their young, “purr” like a cat in the house when its playing with cubs, and bleating when in distress. The cheetah can not roar, as it has a single bone of the thyroid in the throat, unlike the lion, tiger, leopard and jaguar that have two and may be able to roar.

Cheetah facts are the fastest land mammal in the world. They are definitely built for speed! Their long, strong legs can go from 0-60 mph in seconds. Semi-retractable claws provide greater grip and control. Its huge lungs, heart and nose intake, contributes a large amount of oxygen and exhales a lot of carbon dioxide. Faster and faster in the activities, its long tail helps them balance and make sharp turns. They have flexible spines that works almost like a rubber band, and helps increase speed. As a football player uses the greasy black eye to reduce glare from the sun, the cheetah is also has a long line of black flow from the eyes to the mouth, which helps reduce glare from the sun well and also keeps the focus on animal prey.

Cheetahs are often mistaken for Leopard, because from far away, their spots and color of the fur looks much the same. Look closer and you will see that the two are both very different. Leopards do not have solid spots. The spots on a leopard are in a rosette pattern which have a brown center and a darker outer ring. Leopards are more muscular and have shorter legs.

7. Built to kill, Cheetahs have long streamlined bodies such as the rudder and the tail, which will help the cat’s movements and the balance in fast corners during a chase.

8. Due to competition, Cheetahs hunt during the day rather than at night and eat quickly after taking down the prey.

9. Cheetahs usually prey upon gazelles, impala and springboks, and will use the throat bite to crush the victim’s windpipe.

10. While the Cheetah facts have a dimension of great disorder, genetic variation, and conflicts in the larger predators like lions, leopards and hyenas, means that only a small proportion of Cheetah cubs will reach adulthood.

Do you know that Octopuses are considered the scientists of the Ocean?

Octopuses

Considered the worlds most intelligent invertebrate , cephalopod intelligence relies on the nervous system which is different from that of the vertebrates. The cephalopod class of molluscs,subclass coleoidea which consist of  cutlefish,squid and octopuses , considered the most intelligent invertebrates. The impressive learning capacity of Cephalopods, ashtonishes scientists. Unlike their other molluscs cousins, most Cephalopods are active predators. Scientists think that  their need to locate and capture their prey has likely been the force behind the development of the intelligence and uniquely advanced among molluscs. Octopuses are known to use and manipulate tools, using its highly sensitive suction cups and prehensile helps them hold and manipulate objects. An octopus named Otto in Germany, was known to juggle his fellow tank mate for fun, and even caused short circuits by crawling out of his tank and shooting a jet of water at the overhead lamp.

cephalopods communication is incredibly advanced.

.They can single handedly escape from their tanks and find their way to the ocean, as in the case on Inky the New Zealand octopus that slipped out of its aquarium tank, slithered down pipe, and escaped to Bay.

.Just like rodents, they can pass the body and tentacles part by part through a hole 5times smaller than their body size.

.They can open a jar when closed inside of that jar, which means they can open it from inside and equally from outside.

.They build temporary protection over themselves while they sleep.

.They attack prey on land by jumping out.

.They operate light switches for their amusement,

.they make tools with empty shells of fellow aquatic habitat.

.They are known to recreate the look of deadly sea creatures to scare their enemies away.

.They love to attack sharks and whales.

.They escape from their tank, go into another to eat fish, and then return to their tank.

.They identify devices and steal them.

.They identify shapes and never forget them.

.They learn by watching another octopuses undertake a task, and then imitate that task the exact way.

. while the have 10,000 more genes than humans, they equally have 9 brains while we have just one.

.They recognize every process required for the food to get to them, when in captivity.

If this is not the most amazing thing, the what is? Their abilities haven’t been

The humans who take into cognition the fact that the earth needs love to survive for it to keep us alive, have sprung up from incredible countries that have taken the matter into their own hands.

People belief that the ocean has the power to clean up her self, but that was when we didn’t feed it non biodegradable wastes. She does her best to rejuvenate herself, but has been conquered by our number and continuous productions of all kinds of  dangerous long lasting waste.

On a 115 days scheduled cleanup, the Indians converged themselves, young, old, male, female, all with one goal, which is to clean up the environment which in this case, is the ocean. With a smile on their faces, they are proudly digging out decades of waste, freeing the ocean of its burden.

Harmattan.. The time when every Nigerian home owner is accused of being filth.

Harmattan (gettyimage)

Hi goodmorning guys. This Saturday at 12:30pm, I just finished my chores. My  Dusting, sweeping, mopping weren’t done in a haste today. My cleaning tradition has always been to clean the entire house thoroughly on Saturdays,  While I have the light ones done a few times within the week.

But on this particular day, the cleaning process was longer and more intense. It is for the obvious reason though. The Harmattan season has fnally arrived. In Nigeria, we have only two reasons.

. The Wet (Rainy) season:The season where we have the rain fall. From March – October for the North, and almost all year round for the South.

. The Dry (Harmattan) season:The season of dry breeze, dust, and whistling breeze. From October to March.

So ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great honour, that I announce to you that we are right now, in the Harmattan season, where you have to constantly wipe your table tops, and other surfaces after every 20 minutes. I have been wiping for the entire week, to no avail.

But cleaning today, I noticed that in order for you to limit the in flow of dust into your homes, these are some of the actions to take:

Harmattan (gettyimage)

. With The North being extremely cold (Jos), Close up your windows, to retain warmth and prevent dust.

. Stay away from wiping your table tops with oil based substances.

. After wiping your table and surface tops with your wet rag, make sure you wipe it with a dry rag, to dry up the water, and to Prevent the liquid from attracting dust.

.And constantly wipe surfaces to avoid being tagged a filthy Nigerian.

Make this routine last as long as the season, other wise your guests will raise their brows at your hygiene.

Harmattan cleaning.
