How to Treat Frostbite

how to treat frostbite illustration diagram

In a frigid environment, your skin and the tissue just below can start to freeze and crystallize in as little as a few minutes.
This condition is called frostbite, and it’s no minor matter, but rather a serious injury which can permanently affect your appendages.
Knowing how to properly treat it can mean the difference between a sore hand and an amputated one.
Your first course of action should always be to call 911 or to get yourself to a hospital.
The damage may run deeper than you can visually assess. In the meantime, follow the steps above to do your best to ensure that no lasting tissue damage occurs.

Here is a contest for Earth day that i am glad the US did not win!

A Shocking study

Y reveals 90% of global plastic waste comes from just TEN rivers in Asia and Africa

  • Study reveals 90 per cent of plastic waste comes from rivers in Asia and Africa
  • Researchers suggest the best way of reducing plastic is by targeting these
  • Bag ban skeptics meanwhile claim that shopping bags mostly end up in landfill
  • University of Sydney professor calls the bag ban a ‘low-hanging fruit’ issue 

A shocking study has revealed 90 per cent of the world’s plastic waste comes from just 10 rivers in Asia and Africa.

As governments around the world rush to address the global problem of plastic pollution in the oceans, researchers have now pinpointed the river systems that carry the majority of it out to sea.

About five trillion pounds is floating in the sea, and targeting the major sources – such as the Yangtze and the Ganges – could almost halve it, scientists claim.

China's Yangtze River was the worst polluter, and ferries some 1.5 million tonnes of plastic into the Yellow Sea every year, the study found. Pictured, workers clear rubbish in Taicang reach of Yangtze River on December 23, 2016 in Taicang, Jiangsu Province of China.

THE 10 MOST POLLUTING RIVERS

Yangtze East China Sea Asia

Indus Arabian Sea Asia

Yellow River Yellow Sea Asia

Hai He Yellow Sea Asia

Nile Mediterranean Africa

Ganges Bay of Bengal Asia

Pearl River South China Sea Asia

Amur Sea of Okhotsk Asia

Niger Gulf of Guinea Africa

Mekong South China Sea Asia

Carried out by Germany‘s Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, it suggests that the most effective way of reducing the amount of plastic in the world’s oceans is by addressing the sources of pollution along such waterways as these.

The researchers, who first released their paper in 2017, issued a chilling warning for the future.

‘One thing is certain: this situation cannot continue,’ Dr. Christian Schmidt, a hydrogeologist at the Germany‘s Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Researchsaid when the study was first published.

‘But as it is impossible to clean up the plastic debris that is already in the oceans, we must take precautions and reduce the input of plastic quickly and efficiently.’

His team analysed data on debris from 79 sampling sites along 57 rivers – both microplastic particles measuring less than 5 mm and macroplastic above this size.

China’s Yangtze River was the worst polluter, and ferries some 1.5 million tonnes of plastic into the Yellow Sea every year, the study found.

They said microplastics in particular can damage the health of marine life but cleaning it all up would be impossible.

Austrian Teacher Problems

Having been a Teacher in Los Angeles County for 24 years. I actually understand the problems faced by these Folks. (As I was told that my district had students whose primary language numbered over 50 different types.)
Especially when you come from a Homogenized society and now have to deal with a group of folks that have vastly different ideas from yours.
But their problem is vastly worse as Religion is the key factor over there. As just opposed to just language here. Although they have that problems too in spades.
All I can say is Thank God that I am Retired Now!
