Raising Awareness To Save Mother Earth

By now, most of the people currently living on the planet are aware of the desperate state it is in because of negligent human activities that have hastened global warming and climate change among others. We can feel Mother Nature’s wrath now and then and lives are taken as well as properties are destroyed as natural weather systems have intensified due to our higher carbon footprint, abuse and misuse of the world’s resources and basically most of the things we do in our everyday lives.

Today, environmentalists are working double time to encourage everyone to make lifestyle modifications that will benefit the planet to ensure that future generations still have a livable world to live in in the years to come. Not only are these initiatives …

SOS: Planet Earth Is Dying

Skyscrapers keep sprouting everywhere. While we all should be happy for seeing the bustling and sprawling urbanscape as a sign of progress and prosperity, it is taking a big toll on our planet. As if we are not facing enough problems in our lives, environmental issues here and there are simply hard to ignore.

As much as we embrace change and development, it breaks our heart to see how much Mother Nature suffers from man-made destructions. Forests are slowly disappearing, so are the animals living in it. More animals have now gone extinct because of poaching or the destruction of their homes. Water is polluted because we never learned how to dispose of our trash properly. Toxic waste products of big production plants go directly to our rivers, it’s no wonder …

Storms: The Sneaky Killer Of Business Growth

No matter who we are, it’s likely that sometime in our lives we have faced some kind of storm that has affected us. Whether it meant we had difficulties or could not get to work, or if a storm has stranded us in the middle of nowhere, the fact is that disasters happen – it matters most how we react.

Businesses Face A Double Blow

When it comes to severe storms, businesses can face double the damage, both in lost wages and in property damage. This recent storm in Stafford, TX is a prime example:

Single And Doing Good For Others: Nice Trade

sgfoAt Single Volunteers (SV), the goal is to become ineligible for membership. One success story is that of Tony Birchfield and Vicki Kern of SV’s Dallas-Fort Worth chapter, who met a year ago last spring while building a house for Habitat for Humanity. A few weeks later, the widowed business owner, who ran a San Diego tree service, and divorced nurse, both in their 50s, went horseback riding with handicapped children. They hooked up again at a barn dance for the Special Olympics, and four months later, they were married.

“They got to know each other in blue jeans, in full daylight, with sweat on their brows,” says SV’s founder, Anne Lusk. “That’s a wonderful, realistic foundation for any relationship.”

Lusk, 50, got the
