Lake Maracaibo Is Officially The Lightning Capital Of The World

Lake Maracaibo gets 297 lightning nights a year, and it will likely never go down according to RT. The lake has long been a place where lightning happens more than most places, but scientists have figured out that they get 297 nights of lightning a year. There could be 200 or more lightning strikes a night when this happens says expert Dr. Jose Manuel Gonzalez, and it is all over the lake. The lake has been an intensive hotbed of lightning for a long time, but scientists have been trying to figure out why it happens so much over the lake.
The mountain wind and the valley that the lake sits in all help make lightning, and the tropical climate makes it just warm enough all year for the lightning to form. This is very important because it is going to help make the lightning come up more often. There is not this combination in many other places in the world, and Lake Maracaibo happens to be the most active place for lightning.

Venezuela is a natural wonder that has many things that it can credit itself for. The lightning capital of the world over Lake Maracaibo is something that everyone needs to see at least once. Scientists are still learning about the lightning, but they are also getting pictures that are truly amazing to behold. Anyone who is ready to see a wonderful sight should make their way to the lake. More info posted on drjmgonzalez‘ website.

Yeonmi Park Says North Korea Is A Land With No Words For Love

Imagine your entire life being dictated, without question. Back in November, 2015 Reason.com told the harrowing story of Yeonmi Park, a North Korean defector who escaped across China. Yeonmi and her family braved the border guards and fled to China. Just thirteen years old, Yeonmi began her trek with her family, across the Yalu River, continuing through the Gobi desert. It took them more than a year to truly be free.
As a child, growing up in North Korea, Yeonmi Park witnessed how special forces abused the citizens under the paranoid atmosphere of Kim dictatorships. Some of her testimonies have been passed on to the UN investigation before the Panel published its damning report on the situation of human rights in North Korea. Many reports from defectors have been too difficult to verify by the UN, because of access to the country, yet all defectors tell the same stories.

Park’s full triumphant story is now published. Her autobiography tells of famine-stricken childhoods, North China gangsters running forced marriages, her family’s travel across the Gobi desert before reaching their freedom, and the post-traumatic stress many suffer. Yeonmi says on a New York Times interview that she never believed she suffered from post-traumatic stress. Yeonmi points out, “Until I started to write the book, I just turned off my mind. I could not even remember what had happened,” and “I really hope that this book is the light on the darkest place in the world.”

In her Amazon released autobiography, Yeonmi also tells how North Korean people risk penalities to watch banned DVD movies. “Special police search regularly the houses of people, and when they find films, individuals are sent to a labor camp, or a public trial and then execute as a deterrent,” said Park.

Yeonmi has been an advocate for human rights, and the story of her North Korean defection has captivated the world, as well as opening our eyes to North Korean atrocities.

George Soros’ Take on China’s Economy

During a recent Asia Society forum that was held in New York City, George Soros was among the key panelists. He was quick to compare the crisis that China is facing to the global financial crisis that hit the United States in the years 2007-2008. Currently in China the banking system is facing numerous challenges. The banks are experiencing high amounts of debts on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Soros and they are literally lending to one another to keep each other afloat. The total number amount of loans exceed the number of deposits from the banks’ customers.

China’s financial stability has raised a lot of concerns from the global financial world. George Soros is joined together with Andrew Colquhoun who is the Head of Asia Pacific Sovereigns. He too is concerned with the stability Chinas’ economy, saying that the confidence that people once had in China’s economy is coming to an end. The United Sates has come to the aid of China. It has entered into agreements and partnerships on http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-04-20/soros-says-china-s-debt-fueled-economy-resembles-u-s-in-2007-08 with its government in order to build up the credibility of its banking system.

Though George Soros and other international entrepreneurs are casting doubt in China’s banking system, there are those who maintain that what China is facing is just the common challenges that any banking system facing. The actions and attitudes towards Chin have been described as overrated.

Future for Venezuela Looks Bleak

A recent article in the Miami Herald reports that Venezuela is approaching a major collapse. One of the major sources are from twitter, which shared the article’s prediction in a report just released by the International Monetary Fund that projects that Venezuela will reach an incredible inflation rate of potentially 720 percent this year. What this means is that Venezuela is on the brink of hyper-inflation, which is a serious state of economic disarray when the country’s currency basically has no value at all.
In addition to the impending economic turmoil in the country, President Nicolas Maduro may have a real political crisis on his hands. Given the concerns stated by Manuel Gonzalez over the unstable economy and lack of prospects for sustainable growth, President Maduro may face a coup before the next scheduled presidential elections, which are now set for 2019. As frustration and uncertainty over the future of Venezuela mount, political analysts are concerned that a military coup is a very real possibility to over throw President Maduro well before the next presidential elections. The current mainstream predictions are that the greatest threat of a military coup would likely come from the Chavista army officers who have been vocal about their distrust of President Maduro and frustration regarding what they perceive as his lack of competence and experience necessary to run the country, or at least prevent it from a total meltdown.

Treating Your Dog Like a Family Member Means Feeding Him Like One Too

Dog food is no longer the hard, cardboard looking kibble that we used to feed our loved companions. New innovations in the dog food industry have led to a boom in production of high quality, premium dog food that is so good you might even want to eat it yourself. Dog food companies are stepping up the quality of production and eschewing additives and preservatives, to bring dogs a more healthy and natural dog food.
Different dog food manufacturers have been using quality ingredients like salmon and lamb and offering grain-free kibble for years. Unfortunately for the average consumer, buying these types of dog food meant a trip to a specialty store and a big hit to the wallet. Fortunately, traditional pet-food makers are now offering healthier varieties of pet-food that can easily be purchased at your local grocery store.

Purinastore’s Beneful dog food line taps into the popular industry trend of Paleo Diets for pets. Meaning, feed your dog what his ancestors were eating in the wild including fresh meat mixed with natural ingredients like spinach and sweet potatoes. This provides a diet that more resembles the natural eating habits of dogs. Beneful’s dry dog food Originals line boasts ingredients like salmon, chicken and beef mixed with healthy ingredients like green beans and carrots. It provides omega-rich nutrition and 100% of the nutrients dogs need everyday.

An article in the Daily Herald detailed this new trend on twitter of high quality dog food. As pet owners are becoming more health conscious of their own diets, they are realizing that their pets needs high quality nutrition too. Treating Fido like a member of the family means feeding him like one. Purina’s Beneful Incredibites is made with real beef, tomatoes, carrots, and wild rice. That sounds like a combination fit for the family table.

Feeding your dog healthy food that smells more like people food than stinky canned dog food can hit your wallet pretty hard. Luckily Beneful provides a healthy, nutrient rich dog food that won’t break the bank. Beneful has all this while helping your pooch maintain a shiny coat, healthy skin, and increased alertness. Beneful is available for order online: http://www.amazon.com/Beneful-Food-Originals-Real-15-5-Pound/dp/B001VJ0B0I

What’s in a Mane

 

 

Poor Justin Bieber has now been criticized again—this time for an act of “cultural appropriation,” or something you might call hair imperialism. Curiously, he has gotten in trouble for showing up with his hair in dreadlocks, something rock and roll performers have been getting away with since the 1990s. Miley Cyrus has, of course, also faced criticism for the very same thing. There is a strange bifurcation between the reactions received by performers who adopt these styles for visual effect, and those who have been attracted by the music of traditional black performers. Nobody criticized the Red Hot Chili Peppers for covering James Brown and Parliament/Funkadelic. And checking out a catalogue of influences behind the Rolling Stones reads like an all-star team of black rhythm and blues.

*************************

Through an interesting juxtaposition of events, a retrospective exhibition of Rolling Stones memorabilia has opened at the Saatchi Gallery, in London. The exhibit is called Exhibitionism, and offers a look into the band’s fifty year career. Included in the retrospective are re-creations of concert backstages, dressing rooms and even an apartment from the band’s early days. Musical instruments, stage costumes, and collaborations with writers and visual artists are also part of the showing.

For the curious and curio-minded, you can visit the show’s Facebook page here.

Should you wish to view some smart clothes that are always display worthy, you should venture over to justfab.com. There you will find a beautiful array of modern styles—and be sure to take the online quiz, so your fashions can be personalized by the store’s dedicated stylists. More than likely you will want to bookmark the page since exploring the site is going to take longer than just a few minutes. Check them out on Instagram.

First Lady Michelle Obama Wows At The White House State Dinner In A Jason Wu Gown

Michelle Obama will probably go down in history as one of the most stylish First Ladies that the United States of America has ever known. Whether Michelle Obama is dressed in orange while watching her husband Barack Obama deliver the State Of The Union speech to the nation or stepping off a plane in style, she always looks amazing. First Lady Obama’s effortless and pristine sense of style has been turning heads ever since she first came to the White House and her most recent high profile style choice is no difference.

According to People Magazine, Michelle Obama left fashion lovers everywhere breathless after she stepped out in a lovely custom-made gown. The Obamas held a state dinner at the White House in honor of the recently elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau. While the President looked dapper in a black tuxedo, the First Lady looked like a vision in the strapless gown that she chose for the occasion. Her gown was a custom design made by Canadian designer Jason Wu. The gown was a dark blue avant-garde take on the intricate jacquard trend. The dress was covered with a bold pale pink, red and yellow floral print that, according to People, walked down the runway (in a different cut) as a part of Jason Wu’s most recent collections during fashion week on Retailmenot. Mrs. Obama paired her beautifully-designed dress with a bouncy, full hairdo and her signature bare arms.

The Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, appear to have inherited their mother’s signature sense of style. The girls also drew attention for the stunning gowns they wore to the White House State dinner. According to the Fashion Times on crunchbase.com both of the dresses worn by Sasha and Malia Obama were designed by Naeem Khan. Sasha wore a floor-length light brown gown that was encrusted with opulent metallic beading. Malia wore a nude, burgundy and black dress embroidered with lace floral patterns. Malia and Sasha kept their hairdos simple with Malia opting for loose shoulder-length curls and Sasha choosing a braided hairdo.
