    The Emu War, also regarded as the Greatest Emu War, was a disturbance nature wildlife control military campaign conducted in Australia in the late 1932 to counter public outrage about the volume of emus said to have been wreaking havoc in Western Australia's Campion region. The failed ability to influence the community of emus, a huge wingless bird native to Australia, used armies armed with Stewart guns, prompting the press to relate to the event as the "Emu War." Even though many of the species were destroyed, the emu population thrived and proceeded to destroy crops.

    In a Tweet authored on February 3, Kannan stated that “Yesterday was my last day at Google. I left because Google's mistreatment of [Gebru] and [Curley] crossed a personal red line I wrote down when I started the job. I know I gained a lot from Google, but I also gained a lot from both of their work, and they were wronged.” David Baker, a company director, also resigned over these dismissals.

  • Dietary supplementation: The Plant based protein

    Dietary supplementation protein can help with fat management or I can say maintenance of weight loose, enhancing the lipoprotein level, and reducing inflammation of blood pressure. Nevertheless, studies illustrating the beneficial effects of protein intake must be interpreted with caution because expanding protein-rich food intake generally leads in many other diet modifications (i.e., power, vitamins, nutrients, and foods) since proper nutrition is obtained from a variety of foods. Adding protein-rich products, for instance, may modify nutritive factors and food consumption (e.g., processed fats and fermentable carbs), based on which protein sources of food are enhanced as well as what they substitute. Therefore, the results of enhanced protein intake are affected by the protein nutritious food source and the subsequent dietary fiber and micro - nutrient (as well as bioactive components) replacements. As a result, facts supporting total protein intake must consider the origins of the protein, the elements of the food that it replaces, the minerals and bioactive components that surround the nutrients in the food product.

  • Always have a blank page to write your tomorrow

    I just got off from a call with my mom, and one thing she said stuck with me. She said, "life will never go as you plan and, it is full of surprises. So, embrace the chaos and hope for the best." That made me realize that you should always have a blank page with you in your mind to fill the best of your life. Life is hard, yet it is significant, and life is always going to be a mystery. We lead our lives with grand expectations and that gets us worried when things don't go our way. Instead, have a clean page without any promises and be thrilled to write the best things about whatever your life throws at you.

    The oldest of Gen-Z were to enter the gates of the best job market in 50 years. The Class of 2020 was made up of the disillusioned, lazy and entitled kids. Still they worked hard. They built visions and projects to change the world, only to be remembered as the Class of COVID-19. Now it’s time for the Class of 2021. Will their fate match their predecessors’ or will the job market take it easy on them?

    A favorite go-to food for everyone whoever is on a protein diet as well as for someone who is planning to build their muscles, eggs have been one of the fastest and healthiest foods to prepare. Packed with six grams of protein and only 1.6 grams of saturated fat in each large egg, it makes it one of the best foods to consume. Eggs not only provide essential nutrients like vitamin D, folate, vitamin B2, iron, vitamin A, vitamin E, and a lot more nutrients, they also keep one satiated for a longer period of time, thanks to all those high-quality proteins. Eggs help increase the good cholesterol or HDL which can help keep the bad cholesterol or LDL in balance.
