2 Women Create Eco-Friendly Building Bricks from Gaza’s War Remains

Dec 5, 2016

Source:  http://themindunleashed.com/

 

Israelis and Arabs have been fighting along the Gaza strip, on and off, for decades now. The remains of war from the wider Arab Israeli conflict that started after World War II and the Holocaust have been the subject of countless journalistic articles, some stating the strife is fueled by the US government which helps to undermine peace in the region. Despite numerous odds, and giving no heed to who caused or is fueling the ongoing turmoil, just two of women have created an inexpensive, environmentally friendly building material from the rubble of war, and they are about to go into mass production to help to rebuild the area.

These innovative women with engineering degrees are being called the Gaza Girls. Thousands of buildings in the area have been reduced to rubble, but by using the remains of war – the rubble itself – Majd Mashharawi and Rawan Abddllaht have created building blocks which will allow residents to rebuild their homes.

Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind. War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today. Never have the nations of the world had so much to lose, or so much to gain. Together we shall save our planet, or together we shall perish in its flames.

- JFK

Polar bear photographed 'praying' next to cross

Canadian Press  March 30, 2017

polar bear

 

"WESLEYVILLE, N.L. — Jessica Andrews was scanning through dozens of photos she took of a polar bear roaming around her backyard when she came across one that stopped her in her tracks.

The large animal was squatting beneath a white cross, its paws together and raised skyward as it looked up in a seemingly reverential pose.

“I didn’t notice it when I was taking them, but when I started to go through to edit them, oh my God, I was like, ’Holy crap, he’s praying!”’ the 22-year-old said from her home in Wesleyville, a shoreline community on Newfoundland’s central coast.

“I was amazed, I mean, beyond amazed.”

The slightly grainy photo shows the bear sitting on its haunches on a barren, snow-covered patch of rock as it looks up to the top of the white cross.

Andrews said she heard there was a polar bear on the small island behind her house soon after she arrived home from work at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. She grabbed her camera and spotted the bear wandering around some old fishing boxes on the island before it slipped into the water and ventured over to a neighbouring island.

She kept shooting photos and watching the bear with binoculars, insisting that the curious animal was staring back at her. She said the bear then approached the cross, sniffed around the base and then put his paw on it as if to climb up the main beam."

When the string of the violin was being tuned it felt the pain of being stretched, but once it was tuned then it knew why it was stretched'. So it is with the human soul. While the soul goes through pain, torture and trouble it thinks that it would have been much better if it had gone through life without it. But once it reaches the culmination of it then, when it looks back, it begins to realize why all this was meant: it was only meant to tune the soul to a certain pitch. Tagore.**

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."

- Dwight D. Eisenhower
