World Toilet Day! Have You Heard That Before?

Hello beautiful people, have you heard of World Toilet Day?

Join in the campaign...!

Well, now you’ve heard. Today, November 19th, is the second annual World Toilet Day, it is recognized by the United Nations and the founding day of the World Toilet Organization was in 2001. Though it may sound like a comical issue, but it brings to light a serious global problem and a luxury many of us take for granted.

It is estimated that about 35% of the world, or 2.5 billion people, do not have access to toilets according to the World Toilet Organization 2013 Annual Report. According to the United Nations 14%, or 1 billion people, regularly defecate in the open air (no latrine, no privacy).

Where are those not using toilets living? Takepart published an infographic on this issue in April 2014 that describes the 16 countries where the most people lack proper sanitation, including but not limited to those who defecate in the open air:
India, 818 million people or 65% of the population.
China, 607 million people or 44% of the population.
Indonesia, 109 million people or 43% of the population.
Nigeria, 103 million people or 57% of the population.
Pakistan, 98 million people or 52% of the population.
Bangladesh, 75 million people or 48% of the population.
Ethiopia, 71 million people or 80% of the population.
Congo, 50 million people or 72% of the population.
Brazil, 39 million people or 19% of the population.
Tanzania, 32 million people or 68% of the population.
Kenya, 27 million people or 64% of the population.
Sudan, 27 million people or 73% of the population.
Philippines, 22 million people or 22% of the population.
Vietnam, 22 million people, or 24% of the population.
Ghana, 20 million people or 74% of the population.
Nepal, 20 million people or 71% of the population.

Did you know?
More people in the world have a mobile phone than a toilet. Of the world’s seven billion people, six billion have mobile phones. However, only 4.5 billion have access to toilets or latrines – meaning that 2.5 billion people, mostly in rural areas, do not have proper sanitation.

Quick Facts
World Toilet Day aims to promote public awareness of the need for adequate toilets to improve people’s health and save lives.

How about: protection of your personal health and increased personal safety.

One Way Street – New Time Machine, Liberation From The Past

Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why? http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/one-way-street/

 

 It happened one stormy morning of mid-February when I preferred to just stay at home. With this kind of weather, it is usually hard for me to leave my bed, enjoying the warmth beneath the blanket. So I just stayed in my bed, staring at the window and watching for the pouring rain… I love watching the rain. I didn’t have anyone to talk to, but I couldn’t help reminiscing my past. So I started to write all my resentments in a form of a letter…

 

Dear Past,

I am writing you because I don’t have anybody to listen to me. I can’t help it anymore so I decided to confront you because I thought it was the right thing for me to do, since this is all between me and you.There are a lot of memories of you that are really worth remembering. I learned a lot from you during my happiest and saddest moments, during my richest and poorest days and my best and worst times. And I want to thank you for that.When you were still my “present”, of course I enjoyed every second, every minute, and every hour spent with you, stitching bad things and good things together, enjoying the freedom I had. What bothers me the most nowadays is that I feel that you did not totally let go of me. It is because you still seem to be controlling parts of my being. I am still disturbed by what I had already left behind when I made the changes in my life to be a better person.It seems that until now, you are still holding some pieces of me.

It often feels like you urge me to go back to find those pieces of my history and put them together to be whole again, so I could free myself from yesterday. I am not so happy with what is happening to me in the present. I think that you are the one causing me distress because it feels like you are pulling me backwards and keeping me from moving on.You are not making things any easier for me. I have already suffered too much for what I have done and maybe that is now enough to pay my lot.

Don’t you know that you are the main reason for my day-to-day anguish and lots of sleepless nights? Please stop haunting me… please let me go and find a better life. Please set me free….

To my amazement, I received an immediate response that read like this….

Lyrical Lyrics – Beyonce’s Halo Always On My Lips

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory —what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind? DailyPost

Well, what comes quickly to my mind is Bey’s songs especially Halo – I can sing it the whole day…lol
One of the reasons I love Beyonce’s songs is because the lyrics are so easy to memorize, she’s a great singer that sings with passion; you can easily feel the emotion of the song in her voice, and body languages. In all, I love her songs because she’s not a fast singer and anyone can easily singer along with her as well as memorize the lyrics.

Me... Doing Bey's Halo all day! lol

Beyonce’s Halo!
Remember those walls I built!
Oh, baby they’re tumbling down,
And they didn’t even put up a fight! They didn’t even make the sound!
I found a way to let you in, but I never really had a doubt standing in the light of your halo.
I gat  my angel now! It’s like I’ve been awakened,  every rule I had  you breaking!
It’s the risk that I’m taking… Ain’t never gonna shut you out!
Everywhere  I’m looking now, I’m surrounded by your embrace!
Baby I can see your Halo!, you know you’re my saving grace!
You’re everything  I need n more, it’s written  al’over your face.
Baby I can feel your Halo, pray it won’t fade away! (do ur halo!)

Chorus
I can see your halo – halo! Halo!! Halo!!!
I can feel your halo -halo! Halo!! Halo!!!
I can see your halo – halo! Halo!! Halo!!!
Halo, Halo Halo uuuuuuh!

Hit me like a ray of sun burn into much darkest night,
You’re the only one that I want, think I’m addicted to your light!
I swear I’ll never fall again, but this don’t even feel like falling!
Gravity can forget to pull me back to the ground again!
It’s like I’ve been awakened,  every rule I had  you breaking!
It’s the risk that I’m taking… Ain’t never gonna shut you out!
Everywhere  I’m looking now, I’m surrounded by your embrace!
Baby I can see your Halo!, you know you’re my saving grace!
You’re everything  I need n more, it’s written  al’over your face.
Baby I can feel your Halo, pray it won’t fade away! (do ur halo!)

‘Mysterious’ Rare Cloud Formation In Victoria, Australia

A Rare Fallstreak Hole Was Spotted Over Victoria, Australia, and Residents Were Stunned and Confused. When a hole opens in the sky above a town, the locals usually get a little freaked out.

 

 

 

 

 

A gap in the clouds known as a fallstreak hole formed early Monday afternoon in the state of Victoria, Australia, according to ABC.net. Residents posted numerous photos to their social media accounts to document the phenomenon before it faded.

A fallstreak hole is a circular or elliptical gap that can appear in high- to mid-level clouds,” said weather.com meteorologist Linda Lam. “There are water droplets in the cloud that have yet to freeze, and once they do (when ice crystals are introduced), the water droplet freezes and grows. As it grows, it begins to fall and a hole is left behind.

Some witnesses to the event had another name for the formation – many just called it a “rapture” cloud in their social media commentary.

A Huge Day Ahead – Exam Day

It’s the night before an important event: a big exam, a major presentation, your wedding. How do you calm your nerves in preparation for the big day?

Daily Post

Omg! I’ve never felt this way in my entire history of writing examinations. What engulfed me in form of fear is what I cannot explicitly explain.
image

It was the end of semester Examimations on Statistics. The night before, I had prepared to the best of my ability for the exam. As the time for the exam approaches, come and see me… I was literally shaking, my stomach started to upset me, my feet became cold, palms sweating profusely…Omg!

I employed all forms of Self-talk Therapy on myself, yet it seemed as though things were getting worse. I needed to talk to my best friend who offered to drive me to the exam venue… Sincerely, I felt calmness return to my system.

I went for the exams; luckily, one thing led to the other; the lecturer came one hour behind schedule. This offered me ample time to calm down my nerves… I chit-chatted with few of my classmates then made a few revisions here and there.

At this point, I really felt good about my system, I even became calmly eager to quickly write the exam and go.
Immediately one hour after my arrival to the exam hall, the lecturer arrived with the exam materials, and quickly the exam was administered on us. Many of the questions were so cheap that I became more relaxed about the whole thing.

In less than two hours the exam was over! Praise be to God who had made all things possible for me!

Oh, and my best friend was still around to take me home after the exam… This was a surprise as I never saw it coming my way. God bless his kind heart!

My advice:

Whenever you feel tensed about any situation or you’re in a fix about anything; make sure you talk to someone who listens and really understands you…like I did. Or better still, talk to a counsellor!

How do you calm down your nerves when you are in a tensed situation? Please share it in the comment section.

Thanks for reading my post!
