What is Coral Bleaching?

What comes to your mind when you hear the term coral bleaching? Of course, you will think of the two words separately, “coral” and “bleaching”. Bleaching will mean to you turning something into white color. Well, if you thought in the pattern mentioned above you are right (I thought like that). So, what coral bleaching is, is best explained by this infographic by NOAA.

Now, your next question will be “What are the impacts of coral bleaching?” Here are some of the impacts this phenomenon has:

  1. Coral bleaching seriously effects the ecosystems that depend on them.
  2. Degradation of coral reef also effects the people that rely on them. People depend on reefs for food, income and enjoyment.
  3. Economically speaking, this event could cost $20 billion to over $84 billion in Net Present Value. The losses to tourism are the highest, followed by fisheries and biodiversity.reef-change-gif3

Lets Have Fun with Our Hectic Routines

If anyone noticed, I haven’t been posting for a while.

Reason: I was busy.

Explanation: Had to take Quizzes, make assignments, deliver presentations, and so on.

This semester there are no easy subjects, such as english, pak studies, and management. Science is all we study.

Studies start at 7 am and end at 1 am. I have no time to rest. My family feels ignored. I have no time to even listen to their problems. No time to keep my life balanced.

But what we don’t understand is that with difficulties and hardships comes happiness. Without work, there is no happiness. Life is the name of responsibilities and hard work. We cannot live a life free of hardships.

I have fun in this hectic routine. For example, I did an assignment on cadmium and its effect on the environment this week. I have learned so much from it. And yeah, this week I also got to know something new. Did you know that what this sign means?

Hint: It is present at the bottom of plastic bottles.

It depicts a code that predicts the harmful product that will be formed when such bottle, can, etc., is decomposed. This helps those who deal with wastes to take precautionary measures. I know all of you have seen such signs, like me, but you never knew what they mean. Isn’t it fascinating???

What happened this morning gave me such great joy. I had a quiz of the subject ‘Industrial Chemistry’ at 11 am in the morning. Although I had prepared my readings carefully and thoroughly, everything I learned was slipping from my mind. We were late for the test. Just before I was going to reach university, we got a text that the test was cancelled. Yay!!! I was so happy. God helped me out. The test was shifted to next week.

So you see, happiness can come to you even when you least expect it.

I enjoyed these tips.

I never knew that our bitter lemon fruit has such a long list health benefits. I used to like lemons before (I love the bitter taste of them), but after acknowledging the benefits of lemons, I like them even more.

Lemon has the power to control and cure a wide range of health problems. Not only it can help you to deal with health issues, but also it can amplify your beauty. The following pictures illustrate most of the health benefits of lemon (Citrus × limon).
