.....from page 1 When people live in cities, they may not be able to store or recycle waste, so huge landfills or incinerators are needed. Is our Government catering for all these requirements? However, as consumers, we are responsible for all these problems and we can do something about it, Yes we can do our part! We can start by consuming less power. We need to ensure that we turn off lights when not in use, replace inefficient bulbs with low-power consuming ones, and not leave equipment on standby. We need to control our surging populations. Each of us can make a decision regarding family size. The pressures of high population on environment are destructive. We need to reduce our consumption, recycle, and reuse. It is important to protect the environment because man-made disruptions to ecosystems can cause extinction, because pollution creates dangers for both animals and people, and because mankind owes the natural world a moral obligation. In conclusion, our choices, however small, do have a real impact. If each one of us took two or three simple steps to live more simply, imagine the positive effect on the planet and imagine the difference you and I would make! The least we can do is every one of us to plant a tree!

This potentially life-threatening condition requires immediate medical help. The aims of first-aid treatment are to check the victim’s level of consciousness, open the airway and check breathing, then, if the victim is breathing, to put him or her in a stable position until help arrives. Check the victim for signs of consciousness, open the victim’s airway and check his or her breathing. If the victim is not breathing, begin rescue breaths. If the victim is breathing, place him or her in the recovery position and treat any injuries. Examine the victim gently for any serious injuries. Control any bleeding, check for and support suspected broken arms or legs. Stay with the victim until medical help arrives. Monitor his or her breathing regularly every 10 minutes. Check for any changes in the victim’s level of consciousness by asking simple questions or shaking him or her gently every 5-10 minutes. It’s important to note the following: • Do not move the victim unnecessarily in case there is spinal injury. • If you need to leave the victim to get help, place her in the recovery position. • Do not shake a baby or child. • Be prepared to begin resuscitation. • Do not give an unconscious victim anything to eat or drink. DID YOU KNOW? • Every minute you spend angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. • The word STRESSED read backwards is DESSERTS. TOTS OF WISDOM • Nothing can deem the light that shines within. • Everyone wants to be a diamond but very few are willing to get cut. JUST ASKING: • Why is minute ‘in reference to time’ and minute ‘in reference to small size’ spelt the same? • Why is blue band yellow?
