The German TV-show “TopZehn” – actually just an adaption of an American show called “Alltime10” – now had an episode about the 10 “weirdest cities in the world”. In India for example there is a city where people keep feeding wild monkeys for cultural reasons. By doing so however they attract even more monkeys and make them lose their natural fear of human beings. There already have been cases of monkeys stealing lunch from school-children, shopping bags from ladies and even food from stalls on market places.

The German informative show “Galileo” – named after Galileo Galilei – says that in Kerala (India) there is a gentleman who despite his age – back then he was over 60 years old – and his disability – half his body was and still is paralyzed – single handedly tried to dig a tunnel through a mountain so he could build a road there. Reason is a village this mountain cut off the rest of the world – including food supply, medical supply, the chance to get a job in a town on the other side of the mountain etc. Today is the 4th anniversary of the day this road was finished.

I thank you for everything; for commenting, for your compliments regarding my posts, for the links and for offering me this contract. I regrett to inform you that I’m not interested in any kind of online contract. Thanks for understanding!
News: As Earth Day was just last Saturday the German human-rights organisation “GfbV” published an article about the problems aboriginal tribes all around the world face at the moment:
>Within the next five years India is going to spend 15 billions of dollars on producing ore and coal. The thing is that most is going to be won from territory that currently belongs to a native people called the Adivasi and the Indian government seems to ignore the fact that they do not want their territory to be dug up, their water resources polluted and some food resources destroyed for the production of something the tribe itself doesn’t even have any use for.
>On Mindanao, the Philippines a native tribe called the Lumad constantly gets pushed back and chased away by people who are hired to dig for gold, copper and silver there. 16 Lumad even got murdered just for not abandoning their old sources of food and water despite diggers digging for gold there.
>In Sweden and Finland deforestation and global warming trouble the Sami as their reindeer feed on forest trees and have a slightly higher mortality rate as climate change also changes the vegetation surrounding them. Another problem is that they lose land to companies digging for ore.
>US-President Trump announced the construction of a 1.890 km long pipeline in North Dakota. Many Sioux demonstrate against the Dakota Access Pipeline as there is no guarantee that its construction is not going to damage ancient burial sites.

Re-upload: “http://www.wcs.org/”, “http://www.21stcenturytiger.org/” and “http://www.wpsi-india.org/donations/index.php” are the homepages of three organisations I do trust. I think they deserve getting supported. After all it’s not only this tiger that is endangered, but its whole habitat.

When examining worldwide air pollution “WHO” came to a surprising conclusion. The cities with the highest death rate due to polluted air are located to Pakistan, India, Iran, Mongolia, Botswana, the USA and the EU and not a single one was located to a developing or least developed country.
