Earth Hour is an iniative, started by the WWF that turned it into a global yearly phenomenon taking place all across the planet. The event is meant to encourage all individuals, communities and businesses to turn off all non-essential electric lights for an hour, from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. It is usually held towards the end of the month of March.
Earth Hour has officially become a symbol of commitment towards our beloved planet.

Earth Hour 2018 will be held on 24/3/2018 from 8.30pm to 9.30pm Local Time.

Let’s get ready, prepare our candlelights and pre-charge our portable battery packs, and join the millions who are already fighting climate change!

Modern Day Illuminati?

As of late, I swear I’ve been delving too deep into the hidden virtual streets of the internet and YouTube.
I’ve managed to uncover a whole bunch of crazy looney conspiracies revolving modern-day Pop & Music culture.
It is an uncommon knowledge that almost every track or piece of musical composition is set in 440Hz. This frequency, contrary to many, is known as the industry standard for fine tuning musical compositions.

Does it make today’s music more ego-centric & so called ‘unconscious’?
hiphopculture
With the likes of Tupac Shakur & Notoroious B.I.G having such wild attention going out of hand during the rise of Old School Hip Hop in the 90s, many artists and rappers have followed in the wake of such artists in America & continue to churn out ‘Pop Hits’ or ‘Trap Hits’ for the BillBoard Charts and consumers of the industry.

Is mankind doomed to musical imperfection? What about those artists who claim to be ‘conscious’?
What is the true meaning behind the endless music videos of drug consumption and gang violence? Is this what’s really going on in the world behind closed doors?

I have to admit, I too, have been fallacy victim to today’s musical fiascos. Not only do I find myself actually enjoying the music, at time’s I catch myself spitting some bars freestyle over a ‘Logic Type Beat’ and taking videos of myself getting lit.
As catchy and cultural today’s music evolution is, it certainly is taking the world by storm and there seem’s to be no stopping it.
You know what they say, “If you can’t beat them, join them.”

Advertising is a huge cornerstone of what drives the industry today, you’d see subliminal messages everywhere from interview pictures, music videos, award shows and even on websites.  Especially prominent in music videos, today’s music artists tend to incorporate both unobvious and obvious marketing tactics to advertise their ‘style & demeanour’ or the things that they are advocating through their craft. Don’t get mistaken, this doesn’t mean that your favorite artist or rapper doesn’t love the music or aren’t passionate about it anymore, but they’ve clearly fallen for the big bucks that these corporations and industry giants seem to have on never-ending access. We’re talking not just millions, but billions of dollars being pumped daily into popular culture today.

Some of these artists’ are completely unaware of what they’re in for and they may have just regretted their past’ decisions. It’s crazy what a bunch of money and fame being offered to you instantly can make you do. Many famous stars who have been prominently dominating the industry who have seemed to called it quits, proves everyone otherwise only to return much later in the years..this is the power of the industry today.

The World is Flat

Remember how back in the past we gullible humans all once thought the Earth is flat? Thomas L. Friedman’s International Bestseller ‘The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century’.

Well guess what, the controversy is back now! The World is Flat. Keen and interested to join the race for globalization?

Still baffled over there I see..that’s fine, let’s find out more about this archaic conception of the Earth’s model. Here’s 10 ‘proofs’ that show the example of how our planet is flat.
http://metro.co.uk/2016/07/19/here-are-10-proofs-that-the-earth-is-actually-flat-not-round-6016710/

As much as the proposed evidence may show that Earth is flat, on the contrary, if you have the luxury to do so, take a boat out to see and try to spot some cruises or bigger ships, you will notice the lower part of their body is not able to be seen in the horizon due to the curvature of the Earth.
One of the earliest believers of ‘Flat Earth’ was English writer Samuel Rowbotham in 1849, arguing for a flat earth. Now even in modern society, one is able to seek like-minded individuals to discover the Earth’s false flatness together.

There are tons of informative videos and documentaries depicting the Earth’s model.

Watch how Elon Musk trolls the Flat Earth Society!

Are there any other methods that may deem fit for this little controversial theory?
If you do, feel free to drop them down in the comment section below! Let us know your thoughts and opinions.

Solar Powered RV that never runs out of gas!

Check out the latest motor-home innovation from Germany, showcased by RV company, Dethleffs. Never again will you have to worry about gas prices and mortgages!
These RVs, dubbed as “e.homes” are built to last and are perfect for the traveling homeowner, party crew or hippie couple!

This is not just any electric vehicle. The unveiling of the vehicle is right on point as Volkswagen announces their latest Kombi Van.
It is obvious for reasons that powering a motor-home RV is not as convenient as one thinks. Having to keep all its components powered up requires an extensive amount of energy! In order to ride through all the bumps, Dethleffs virtually covered the entire van with solar panels to ensure it never runs out of power. The RV is built on the company’s Iveco Daily Electric chassis with a 107-horsepower electric motor. The motor home should have a range just shy of 100 miles, fortunately thanks to the solar panels, this beast of a home can make up to 3,000 watts of electricity for its 228-Ah battery. In other words, you’re all good to just keep on going.

The motor-home, featuring a sleek and modern design; circular wireless charging station; infrared heating panels on interior floors, furniture and walls; windows with darkening film between the panes; and a heating system that captures outside air on days warmer than 79 degrees, then sends it into the main cabin when the evening’s cooler air sets in.

We almost forgot – a starlight projection system above the bed.

“Dethleffs know this means a lot more than just putting bodywork on an electrically driven chassis,” Dethleffs Managing Director, Alexander Leopold, said in a Victron Energy release. “By implementing a fully electric power train there are many challenges and equally opportunities for the entire vehicle. One significant opportunity is to do without any additional type of energy sources for the vehicle. This means that a motor-home with electric drive will also supply all the on-board services with electricity for the living area instead of gas, for example – and that is why solar power production becomes very important.”   

There is no news yet on pre-orders or estimated cost, but this is an amazing feat of design with steps in the absolute right direction. Imagine the endless possibilities!

Have you ever dreamed of traveling the world in an RV? Always wondered what living on wheels is like? Looking for the perfect holiday?

The Tigers are vanishing

After having interviewed a WWF representative recently, it was brought to light, the dwindling population and situation of our beloved cats here in Asia.
2018-01-28-PHOTO-00005742

 

The Amur Tiger, also abbreviated as the Siberian Tiger were once often found roaming throughout the far east of Russia, northern China & along the Korean peninsula. Hunting had been the sport for the ruthless poachers who bloodthirstily seeked game. The poor tigers were driven to the brink of extinction…Today, with gratified thanks to Russia, it’s becoming of the first country of the world to grant the subspecies full protection, had been caringly boosting the numbers back up from a mere 40. The population of the ‘Panthera tigris altaica consists of roughly 540 cats, having them often weighing in around 396-660 pounds.

Forests habitats are at risk due to logging, conversion to agriculture, urban expansion, mining, road construction, fires & inadequate law enforcement. The ferocious felines have been restricted to the Sikhote-Alin range in Primoski and Khabarovsk provinces of the Far East. These tigers actually own the largest home range of any tiger subspecies, having to roam far and wide because of the low-prey density in the area. They currently represent the largest unfragmented tiger population in the world.
It goes to show there aren’t really many of these pussycats around anymore.

Did you know that tiger bones and teeth are used for human facial products & medicine?

Tiger skin is often sold off and traded for carpets, rugs & furniture.

Every week, a wildlife ranger gets shot in action thanks to poachers hunting for game.

World Wildlife Foundation is doing everything possible in their power and means to put a halt to humans endangering other land animal species on our still vibrantly life harbouring planet.
Monitoring populations. Protecting habitats. Increasing Tiger prey. Advocating for improved legislation. Raising Public awareness.

Aliens Exist? Mysteries beginning to unfold

This former American astronaut confessed about his knowledge of top-secret classified information regarding the Cold War and Extraterrestrial life on Earth.

Edgar Mitchell, former NASA astronaut, was the sixth human being to set foot on the moon during the Apollo mission in 1971. He devoted the remaining years of his life to the unconventional scientific study of extraterrestrial life after his retirement.

Edgar Mitchell passed away at the age of 85, in Florida, United States of America. But before he moved on, he revealed during an interview with Mirror Online, a British newspaper, that ‘Peace-loving aliens’ had played a part in preventing a nuclear war between mankind’s military forces. They had apparently visited the Earth during the Cold War.
“The extraterrestrials were trying to prevent war by helping create peace on Earth. he said. He also added that, “My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help to create peace on Earth.”

He had specifically pinpointed UFOs on being sighted in military bases all across the globe. “I spoke with several Air Force officers who worked in these bases during the Cold War. They told me that UFOs were frequently seen and that they were able to deactivate their missiles. Other officials on the Pacific Coast said their missiles were frequently shot down by alien ships. There was a lot of activity in those days.” he revealed.

According to the NASA astronaut, the US government never spared resources when hiding all types of information on such incidents. Till the final moments of 1974, a National Security Act was signed, thereby prohibiting the disclosure of any information on UFO sightings.
“White sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – those were what the extraterretrials were interested in. They wanted to know about our military capabilities. said Mitchell.

NASA had responded to Dr.Mitchell’s accusations in the past by saying: – “NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on this planet or anywhere on this universe.”

Does this kind of information bother you?
