Bush For Life

One thing for sure I learnt today:
Rules for Working in the Bush (there's actually one whole list but three of it are the best ones. The rest are quite common in a way.)

1. Watch your feet
Having to watch where you place your foot making sure minimal damage is done and here is the rare bit - wear soft soled shoes, avoid walking heel first (walk flat footed), thread lightly and avoid twisting your feet. Also, when working in groups spread out and take diff routes! (instead of sticking together as a group-like what we're always told to)

2. Never hang weeds on weeds
Hanging weeds on other weeds puts you to the trouble of dealing with them twice but instead, hang your weeds on natives to avoid double handling.

3. Work with the weather
If the weather is too dry, soil sets hard and roots tend to break off rather than come out. If its too wet, every-step you take causes soil compaction - which I never knew of. I was just like "Just get rid of the weeds at anytime, anyday".

Mother Nature Does It

STRUNG out along a sand spit, a herd of dead sperm whales lies as stark evidence to scientists that forces of nature off the Tasmanian coast appear to be conspiring against cetaceans.

A Southern Ocean wind pattern has been linked to a recent cluster of strandings in the area, luring deep-sea whales into prey-rich waters near a coast riddled with death traps for them.

On top of that, ferocious gales blew through Bass Strait shortly before the sperm whales became stranded. The winds churned the waters into a maelstrom where just one of the highly social mammals needed to get into trouble for others to follow.

Of the 48 ocean giants stranded on Perkins Island in Tasmania's north-west late on Thursday, only five remained alive late yesterday.

A Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service whale rescue spokesman, Warwick Brennan, said the task of saving such large animals, some of them more than 10 metres long, was complicated by the inability to get machinery into such a difficult spot.

"The best chance to move the surviving animals, which are jumbled up with the dead ones, may be at high tide in the morning," Mr Brennan said.

The sperm whales lay only a few kilometres from Anthony's Beach at Stanley, where 64 pilot whales became stranded on November 22. About 80 kilometres away on Tasmania's west coast, more than 150 pilot whales died at Sandy Cape on November 29.

Both species are regarded as deep-ocean dwellers, using sonar navigation to hunt prey in waters such as long canyons that run up to the continental shelf off Tasmania's north-west.

CSIRO scientist Karen Evans and the University of Tasmania's Mark Hindell have found that in these waters, a 10-year cycle of zonal westerly winds appears to coincide with a peak in whale strandings.

Dr Evans said the strong winds generated an upwelling of nutrients that linked up the food chain to bring whales' prey — such as squid — to the area and eventually the whales themselves.

Boy 'Healer' Maybe not?

Indonesians are flocking in the thousands to a boy healer in East Java after word got out that he can perform miracle cures.

The story going aroudn is that the nine-year-old named Ponari came into possession of a miracle stone after nearly being hit by lightning recently.

Local media reported since the last several days, people have been making a beeline to the boy's home in Dusun Kedungsari, Jombang, in the hope of getting cured for their many ailments.

The reports said Ponari, a Year Three student at the local school, however, did not know he had such an ability but knew that he was not a normal person as he would be carried around the people coming to him for cure.

Well...anyone care for a 'treatment'?

Bribe Yourself for Motivation

One thing I learnt from Michael.

"You need to bribe yourself".
Which I think I have never done before, but come to think of it, I actually DID. Its only that I never did realised.
I was ignorant.

So, wake up! Brace yourselves as with this matter, or in other way you put it, you could actually motivate yourself to get something done!

So will it be a yaaaay??

Annoyed I Am

Don't you get annoyed when one of your friend keeps on bugging you for an answer, well, I mean answer(S) and that he/she didn't try to look for the answers themselves?

If you DID try to look for it as what you have claimed, you will of course find the answer and would not have to bug me!

Well, I'm venting my frustration and disgust here. I AM annoyed!

One excuse is that he/she had to work and did not attend the field trips and that he/she doesn't know the answer. I mean like...if the answers really DID come from the trip, I wouldn't mind. But ITS A GENERAL QUESTION for god's sake. You can easily get the blardy answer simply by Google-ing it and also look up for it in the lecture notes!!!

That's the main reason for me for not answering your calls, but at least I'm still good enough to reply your email on this blardy work!
