Scenary-Science-Street Art Plus More (part 1)
From Ing’s Google+ Community – Sunday, October 28, 2018
The content of this post came from my Google+ site. I am thankful and appreciative of people who posted beautiful photographs and useful information in my community that I shared on my Google+ site. I decided to post the content from my Google+ site on the Blog page of my website, because the Google+ office had declared that the Google+ operation will be closed by August 2019. I am sorry it is happening because I just started to enjoy the fruitful contents posted by my community.
It has such a variety of knowledge, for example, Dirk Schonfeld posted, Street Art, from all over the world and he provides the information about the artwork that gives more meaning to the pictures in the posts. By doing so the viewers become students learning the different techniques and expressions from different countries. The people who posted their content then become teachers, providing knowledge to all the viewers.
Anand Sarnkar, Fatima Sheikh posted Science and other subjects, Danie van der Merwe posted, Green Tech and Environment, Wasim Muklashy posted, Future Is Pretty Rad, Health and Wellness posted, Herbal Medicine, Neuroscience News, Medical News Today, NASA, and others posted about space tecnology. Viktor Elizarov posted photography subjects, Trey Ratcliff posted photographs from his travels, Candy Javier Sakai posted her photographs from Japan, Emily Moor posted Nutrition Basics, Terry McNeil posted food, funny subjects and others, Jean-Valentine Grigoras posted unusuael subjects, Manuel Caycedo posted Native American subjects, Birds of India- Bird World, and BackintheUSA posted Vintage American Images.
I contributed some of the posts of my Peace Project work, TED Talk, BBC News, and some of the technology programs on BBC Click, National Geographic, and, YouTube videos on different subjects.
Emma Elenusz posted My Country Romania and Others, Nick Mare, Malgorzata M., and from the, Wonders, site, Jennny Loveva, Danne Wells, VNY, Peter H, Pradeep Shah, Elena “Ely” Roncoroni, Sally Elmakawi, Almas Ahmad, and a lot more people posted extra ordinary scenary from different countries, and adorable pictures of children and animals, especially cats and dogs. One of my favorite categories is, beautiful birds and gardens.
Johnny Stork and Ye Chen’s Blog post Philosophy comments, I also shared the posts of , Provocative Ideas, from Todd William’s site.
I apologize for those people whose names I did not mention, all of us contribute time and energy to make our community richer in a lots of ways.
I admire people who spend their time collecting all this information and pictures to post on the Google+ project. Everything comes and goes as time dictates, including us, humans. What remains is evidence of hard work that becomes history to record for future generations to understand and learn from our present generation.
Thanks to Google+ while it lasts. I am glad to know people from this country, USA, and other countries around the world through Google+. Hopefully we all will go on to operate our own websites, like mine, or go on to other new collective websites. We will not stop just because Google+ closes their operation. I hope we all will continue to do work in different ventures and find more enjoyable ways to contribute knowledge to society as a whole.

Why do we have to choose between nationalism and globalism, between loving our countries and caring for the world? In a talk with lessons for avowed nationalists and globalists alike, Wanis Kabbaj explains how we can challenge this polarizing, binary thinking — and simultaneously be proud citizens of both our countries and the world.

City of Cape Town: Proof that an ailing public transport network impacts air pollution
Air quality in the Mother City is being affected by the failing train service, according to The City of Cape Town. The City’s Specialised Health Service says the failing rail service has resulted in more cars on the road, which has led to more air pollution.
With over 1.2 million vehicles on the road, motor vehicle emissions are said to be the biggest contributor to air pollution in Cape Town. The City’s Ian Gildenhuys says there has been a notable increase in vehicular emissions, specifically in the Nothern Suburbs.
“Nitrogen is the pollutant most linked to transport emissions. We have seen a slight increase in the Northern Community network, in the Goodwood-Bothasig air particularly.” — Ian Gildenhuys, Head of Specialised Environmental Health Services at the City of Cape Town.
An efficient public transport network is an important component of combatting air pollution in a city.

ScottishPower Ditches Remaining Gas Plants In Move To 100% Wind
Scottish power company ScottishPower announced on Tuesday that it has completed the sale of its traditional generation business to British electrical power generation company Drax Group for £702 million in cash, resulting in ScottishPower becoming the first integrated energy company in the UK to shift completely from coal and gas to wind power.
“This is a pivotal shift for ScottishPower as we realise a long-term ambition,” said Keith Anderson, Chief Executive of ScottishPower. “We are leaving carbon generation behind for a renewable future powered by cheaper green energy. We have closed coal, sold gas and built enough wind to power 1.2 million homes.
Over the past decade, ScottishPower has closed all its coal plants, and sold its gas and hydro stations, while building up a portfolio of 2,700 MW worth of wind power either already operating or under construction, and a pipeline of future wind projects worth over 3,000 MW. Included in the company’s pipeline is 2,900 MW worth of offshore wind — in addition to the 714 MW East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm currently under construction.
“Energy companies must be part of the solution to climate change,” added Ignacio Galán, Chairman and Chief Executive of Iberdrola, ScottishPower’s parent company. “Iberdrola is acting now to cut carbon emissions 30% by 2020 and be carbon neutral by 2050. The sale of these generation assets is consistent with our strategy.”
PS: Yes I saw the original typo… I’m sure ScottishPower did not “build wind” but probably built “wind generation” 😉

does it feel like home, the table at which you eat?
does it feel like home, the eye in which you look?

M16: In and Around the Eagle Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Andrew Klinger
Explanation: From afar, the whole thing looks like an Eagle. A closer look at the Eagle Nebula, however, shows the bright region is actually a window into the center of a larger dark shell of dust. Through this window, a brightly-lit workshop appears where a whole open cluster of stars is being formed. In this cavity tall pillars and round globules of dark dust and cold molecular gas remain where stars are still forming. Already visible are several young bright blue stars whose light and winds are burning away and pushing back the remaining filaments and walls of gas and dust. The Eagle emission nebula, tagged M16, lies about 6500 light years away, spans about 20 light-years, and is visible with binoculars toward the constellation of the Serpent (Serpens). This picture involved over 25 hours of imaging and combines three specific emitted colors emitted by sulfur (colored as red), hydrogen (yellow), and oxygen (blue).
