Categorizing and Exploring the Universe

1. Solar System
2. Milky Way Galaxy
3. Observable Universe
4. Undefined
5. Multiverse
I hope it will help for better understanding.

Given enough time and the right technology (and assuming there’s not some serious competition), we might even be able to colonize the entire Milky Way galaxy someday

Hoping for Peace on Earth

We all need to breathe, but 'the lungs of the Earth' are in flames - Amazon wildfires. Deforestation contributes the climate change. Please make an effort and stop tearing down the Amazon jungle for narrow-minded industrial growth.

My thoughts are also with the Hong Kong people in these days of the crisis. I hope the situation will work out and all parties will be satisfied.
If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

Celebrating the 100th Birthday of Famous "Gaia" Book Series Author - James Lovelock

Scientist James Lovelock had set up the "Gaia hypothesis" back in 1969. It's "the Earth viewed as a vast self-regulating organism". The hypothesis contributed significantly to our understanding of global warming. I would recommend everyone to read his books about Gaia. James Lovelock is still vital, though at an advanced age.

Happy birthday dear James Lovelock!

Vegan Parents Couple Avoid Jail

An Australian couple, who fed their baby daughter a strict vegan diet resulting in severe malnourishment, has avoided jail time. The couple was sentenced to an 18-month jail term to be served as a community order.
There is a huge difference between vegetarian and vegan. Vegetarians don't eat animal products, but vegans don't eat animal products and by-products (e.g. eggs).In my opinion vegan diet isn't good, it is lacking proteins, vitamin B-12, zinc, iron, calcium...

Another example I would like to point out is how vegans supplement milk: they use soy,  rice, or almond milk, but are there any almonds in your almond milk?
I'll remain "Lacto-Ovo vegetarian" - do not eat meat, poultry, or fish, but do eat eggs and dairy products, because improved health is one of the major benefits of a vegetarian diet, and it's good for the environment.

Happy World Elephant Day - August 12

Protecting elephants is an important part of fighting climate change. Why? Because every day across Africa and Asia, elephants disperse billions of seeds, some of which will grow into the forests of tomorrow, sequestering and storing carbon, generating rainfall and stabilizing our climate. Save the elephants to save the forests to save the world!

This important species is facing a crisis.

We Have Consumed Planet Earth Resources for This Year, but Population Will Rise to 11.2 Billion in 2100

Illustration: Pixabay

Global Footprint Network has calculated that we have consumed planet Earth resources for this year. Our planet has limits to how much it can regenerate naturally, and we are exhausting it much more.


There are going to be a lot more old people by the year 2100. I recommend setting up regulations like China had "One-child policy".
