What does connectedness mean?

What does connectedness mean?

by Elna Bau @ Whyzz Explorer

Usually when you pack your backpack or suitcase you are going on a trip. Maybe to an exciting foreign country. But have you ever had to pack up all of your belongings, say goodbye to friends, and leave a place that has been your home to move to a different state or country?

Today many people move around the world in search of a better life. Many flee from conflicts and wars in their regions or from environmental conditions such as droughts or floods, others move because they can’t find work to earn money, and a lucky few move because they enjoy living and working in a different country.

The reason why people move around is because of the way the world is connected. Through the Internet people learn about foreign countries and they can get in touch with each other. The global economy allows those with money to transfer it to other countries. Airplanes and ships enable us to travel to every destination in the world in only a few hours or days.

Being connected to the world allows humans to share their progress in science and medicine, broadcast breaking news from faraway places, experience art and culture, and make friends they’ve never met in person.

Connectedness also means that things people do somewhere in the world, like in China or Africa or France affect all of us — no matter where in the world we live. Think about protecting the rainforest, fighting diseases, the food people eat or how they get along with other people in their country.

Belonging to a world community, and being a global citizen, brings awesome opportunities but also great responsibilities. Think about both — and how connectedness affects your own life.

Where is the world’s most poisonous lake?

Where is the world’s most poisonous lake?

by Elna Bau @ Whyzz Explorer

So you’ve probably heard of poisonous snakes and spiders — but an entire lake? Yes, it’s true. Lake Nyos in the African country of Cameroon which sits inside the crater of a volcano was once a regular, large blue lake. But one mysterious day in 1986, that was about to change…

It was evening when nearby famers heard a strange rumbling sound and saw a giant jet of water shoot out of the lake and form into a giant, white cloud above it. But when the farmers walked over to investigate, they fell to the floor. The cloud contained poisonous gas and hovered over the lake for two days. When it finally disappeared, some of the people who had collapsed actually woke up but 1,700 people and many animals for miles around had died. Meanwhile, the lake had turned a muddy, orange color.

So what caused the toxic cloud?
It turned out that the cloud was made up of carbon dioxide gas which is dangerous in big amounts. Scientists weren’t sure how this came to be in the lake but later agreed that it must have leaked into the water over a period of time and sunk to the bottom. Then a landslide disturbed the calm waters and set about a chain of events that caused the lake to shoot out water and all the gas at once which made the poisonous cloud. Strangely enough, the same thing happened at a smaller lake in Cameroon just a couple of years earlier. Authorities have since put pipes into both lakes which lets the water bubble up to the surface so that carbon dioxide is released into the air in small amounts but the entire area is still too unsafe for people to live in.

What is carbon dioxide used for?
Carbon dioxide is kind of like oxygen to plants! They use it to make their food during the photosynthesis process. But the gas, sometimes known as CO2 is also used in small amounts within man-made products, such as the bubbles in fizzy soda!

One morning while in Hanoi Vietnam, we got up before 4:00am to go on an early morning city tour. Crazy, right?! Now, we are not early morning people by any means, but we trusted our guide and drug ourselves out of our comfortable beds to explore Hanoi at 4:00am. We are so glad we did as there are things that you only have the opportunity to experience early in the morning in Hanoi and few tourists venture out at these hours. We explored chaotic early morning markets, witnessed the changing of the honor guards ceremony, joined the local early risers for tai chi at Hoan Kiem Lake, searched for a magic turtle, and had breakfast with the locals in the Old Quarter. All that before 8:00am! Interested? We'll give you a list of places in Hanoi Vietnam you might want to visit on a morning venture of your own and share our own early morning adventures with our local guide from Footprint Travel.
