Is global travel history after COVID-19?

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic might spell the end of global travel as we have known it for quite some time now, jetting from one side of the world to the other. Not only aids such fast travel to other countries far across the globe, and even countries closer, to the spread of any virus, it also can leave, as we have seen, travelers stranded in countries, affected or not from such an event, with almost no way to get back home.

There goes the neighborhood

10,000 Birds

10,000 Birds is having trouble with our website platform. If this post turns up on Wednesday, April 23, it will mean I was successful in uploading text. However, the platform did not allow me to include photos. Since I consider myself a better writer than photographer, I can live with that. When you are an American expatriate who lives, and birds, in Mexico, it is a topsy-turvy world.

Birding from home

10,000 Birds

It has been a difficult week so far. Lady Helen, already house-bound at Boris’s request, came a cropper at the treacherous water jump and turned her fetlock. In the great scheme of things it is not a big problem, but obviously I don’t dare to tell her that. When we were told that the gymkana wouldn’t be going ahead, we set about making a short course in the garden to help keep Lady Helen up to show standard.

Corona creates urgency for healing hemp CBD products

Green Prophet

Some people including myself say these words as loosely as CNN or TLC. For anyone who has been exposed to the medical cannabis industry, or the recreational one, THC and CBD are the key words that anyone who is self-medicating wants to know. . Cannabis oil, drops, tinctures, patches. CBD in your cola. In your morning cereal? THC for pain relief? Where are you to start? Cannabis or hemp?

Ancient blue recreated by botanists in Portugal

Green Prophet

Used in medieval art and illustrations, and in Dutch cheese. Botanists in Portugal have some fun by recreating ancient blue from foraged plants in a nearby village. The mystery is such a mystery that even when botanists say they might have found clues, the secret, I suspect it will still be a mystery: the source of techelet, ancient blue used by Jews.

Transform these habits into eco-friendly habits

Green Prophet

Earth Day just passed us by on April 22 and hopefully, it sparked some interest in being more eco-friendly. All of us have habits that can be switched out for better ones, and switching those habits out for ones that are eco-friendly is no exception. Most of us go through our daily routines without even thinking about what adjustments we can make to better our planet. Perhaps, one of the most obvious changes someone could make would be to ditch the bad habit of smoking.

Green Prophet

Even though formal betting is not legal by religious laws, sports betting is a big industry in the Middle East. When online gambling first introduced in the mid-90s, it was a huge revolution in the gambling industry. In the early ’00s, gambling sites and their desktop clients were ruling the industry as people could easily access them through computers.
