The peril of coral reefs      The purpose of healthy coral reef systems is to provide food for marine creatures which inhibit them. For example, various types of reef fish feed upon microorganisms and help maintain the cleanliness of the reef environment. Another reason is to provide shelter for other sea creatures, such as clown fish, moray eels, and octopus. Coral reefs also act as barriers to help protect shorelines in coastal areas from the pounding surf.

The trouble with our oceans is that we are polluting them at an alarming rate. From climate change to over fishing, some marine species may simply never recover. Coral reefs, however, have been decimated and in some cases, completely eradicated. Over the last 20-30 years, we’ve known that acidification caused by pollution, acid rain and increasing atmospheric temperatures have changed the pH levels of the world’s oceans.

I rescind on a blog I recently posted on The Killing of a Hunter. I was wrong in my statement that there are currently no laws to protect the Gray Wolf in the Western United States. I apologize for my misinformation. The fact is, Gray Wolves ARE protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) throughout the United States. And Washington State law does protect Gray Wolves.

Geir Ludvik Olsen, the company’s founder is targeting up-scale, high-class bars and restaurants in large markets such as Dubai, London and New York.

In the article "Climate change warning grows colder" by Stephen Ewart, published on the Calgary Herald on April 8, 2014, the UN Intergovernmental Panel has made a clear warning, in its latest report, that there is little time left to take action, and reduce the use of fossil fuels, before it is too late to reverse the effects of climate change. There are more severe consequences taking over in our world than there is to fix and prevent.

If it were possible to even begin imagining what it would be like to have cancer, now imagine that your only viable treatment is chemotherapy, which gives you, sometimes crippling, anxiety and severe nausea that often leads to vomiting. Imagine this happens every time you go for treatment, sometimes before you even get to the room. Having cancer is hard enough, so if there was a positive, drug-free way to treat the anxiety and vomiting that comes with cancer treatment, why wouldn’t we want to try it? Music therapy is the answer. It has shown to be significantly effective in individuals undergoing chemotherapy, so why not implement it in more hospitals?
