The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, has been a cause for concern for foresters and landowners alike in the United States. The beetle originated in Asia and was first observed in the United States near Detroit, Michigan, in 2002. It killed nearly 99% of ash trees near its place of original introduction. By 2018, EAB has been observed in thirty-five states and has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in North America.
The COVID-19 crisis has been a shock to our system. No one could have predicted what 2020 would have in store for us, but perhaps we shouldn’t be so surprised. Scientists have been warning us of the growing possibility of a pandemic for years. Human interaction with wildlife and the environment has a role to play in producing pandemics.
Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. While the world around us has dramatically changed since its first celebration fifty years ago, we will take a moment to reflect on the legacy of Earth Day that has continued to inspire action through the decades.
On a particularly hot day, when even the air conditioning can’t seem to keep you from breaking a sweat, your best bet may be to get out of the city. On hot days, air temperatures in a city can be as much as 22°F (12°C) hotter than the air in nearby, less developed areas. Scientists have come to call this the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect.
The exact origins of the first pickle are unknown, but archaeologists believe ancient Mesopotamians were pickling food as far back as 2400 B.C., over 4,000 years ago. From Queen Cleopatra, Napoleon Bonaparte, to the Little Rascals, a love for pickles has lasted the test of time.
New research indicates that air quality may have a significant impact on one’s likelihood of dying due to a COVID-19 infection.
All around the globe, there are ruler, presidents, and kings that are trying to rule their territory, and possibly even the whole world. But is their purpose and goal is to follow the constitutional principles of democratic government? Authoritarianism was a scary figure in the past, especially during the Holocaust. Is Trump heading the same way for authoritarianism? Let's first see what history was like and how it reflects our world today.
Do you think the government is doing enough for the Black community? De-escalation is definitely what we need during all these protests and rioting because all this country need is justice. To get justice, it's important for not only the government, but also the police to listen and try to understand what the purpose is for the Black Lives Matter movement so that no unnecessary harm will occur and affect innocent people. But is it that easy?
With the protests going on, Omar Jimenez, was arrested while doing what was good for the country. He was on the good side, but cops saw him as a bad guy. Here are several stories and references of what's it's like to have a badge, but be black as well during the black lives matter movement and police brutality protest.
As everyone knows all over the States, and most likely all over the globe as well, is that the Black Lives Matter movement is hitting home and to heart for so many lives. From the late 1500s, black people lost their independence and freedom from Europeans when being brought from their home to America to become slaves. They still struggle to this day to get the respect they deserve. Through all the pain and trials they've gone through, they have always relied on food for comfort and strength to survive all the heartbreak and mistreatment they still suffer through to this day.
What is K-pop? K-pop is known to be the next biggest thing in today's world. Their fandom has been growing reluctantly, and many K-pop groups and artists have even collaborated with American artists, won American awards, and performed at the biggest music festival (Coachella). They seem to be the hottest thing all over social media, so it's your time to get to with the bandwagon and learn who and what K-pop is.
As I grew up, I only thought literacy only affected my school life because when I went home, I didn't have to worry for 8 hours of school work. Now that I'm older and is reflecting on my life and what I want to do with school and my future career, I realized that literacy is important to me. I don't dread it like how I dread other subjects and topics in school. I realized that literacy has always been a part of me and I appreciate it because it has helped me become the person I am today.
God is always good, but that doesn't mean He's always safe. This post dares readers to pray three bold prayers: search me, send me, and break me. Dare to read this, and your life will take a scary-good term.
We all have our own story and purpose in life, but sometimes we can get lost and confused about what we truly need to conquer in life. Together we can learn the importance of spending time with Jesus and the scripture. This way we will experience the truth that Jesus changes everything, especially if we love and rely on Him. In Jesus we are reset.
It's hard to believe, but one word can really help you simplify your life by focusing on just one word for your life. The simplicity of discovering for a word that God has for you makes it catalyst for life-change. Clutter and complexity lead to procrastination and paralysis, while simplicity and focus lead to success and clarity. This post will show you how to cut through to the core of your intention for a one word vision for the year.
Here I review one of Wisconsin's land painter known for his surreal landscapes. As a artist myself, I must learn how to interpret and analyze elements in a composition. I chose to analyze Tom Uttech's painting Nin Mamakadendam because at a time like this, it is very ironic and connects to our current situation.
This was my first time ordering from ASOS, a fashion company retailer. I will rate ASOS out of 5 stars based on shipping/package, as advertised, fit, quality, and pricing.
Growing up, I ate a lot of Ramen. I still love ramen til this day, although it is unhealthy for you. I decided to try out Ramen Kid for the first time to see what it's all about. I have heard many things before, such as it's expensive and that they serve excellent food. Here was my first impression.
Asian Americans lives are shaped by many different factors that are affected by history till this day. While some change has occurred, past perceptions of Asians still exist in people minds that can be seen through the historical, social, cultural, political, and institutional forms.
Microaggressions are daily verbal, behavioral, or humiliation, that conveys hostile and derogatory insults towards minorities. Many perpetrators make statements that are racist without them knowing it. It’s due to the lack of education and awareness of other cultures that they feel the need to ask racial questions or comments. I will take a look at microaggressions at an institutional level, specifically the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Due to these understatements, many POC feel aggravated, oppressed, alienated, and unsafe on campus. Given the long history of white supremacy and exiling out minorities, these stereotypical ideas still exist in the minds of people today. Microaggressions occur because of insufficiency of education of minorities’ history and culture.
Recently, I have been listening to relationship problems from friends and family. I’ve noticed that during these situations active listening doesn’t take place, which escalates the issue further and typically ends messy or bad. I’m sure everyone has experienced these types of situations before, which I believe stems off of miscommunication, poor communication, and not actively listening. There can be many reasons and situations, but it all really comes down to these two important tools. These two tools are the basis of solving problems, so the situation won’t end with bitter feelings towards each other.
