Have your say! - Homelessness

From: Jorge GQ
Date: El mié, 25 ene 2017 a las 13:10

I usually find at least 5 homeless when going to work. It´s so sad and I usually think "How can I help them?". It´s not fear!. I usually buy them some food, I give my old cloths as well as I give them alms. I feel that I have to do more. Although we pay a lot of taxes, neither the Government nor the municipality are going to solve the homeless problem, nevertheless, this news is a glimmer of hope. Utah set itself an ambitious goal: end chronic homelessness and It does the best job.
Rightly or wrongly, chronically homeless are the most vulnerable. Moreover, there´re people who have been living on the street for years. I don´t manage to find a solution by myself to the problem, there´s no doubt that together we can give it our best.
Apparently, Government of the Basque country wants to carry out something similar and in my opinion, Madrid should be at the forefront of human right too.
To sum up, we become so consumed with our troubles, we need to be reminded of the less fortunate and I wish this project, First Housing, arrived soon here.

Have your Say! - The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is an enormeous amount of trash located rougly between Asia and America. It is like a big island. This marine mass of plastic extends over 1.400.000 km2, nearly triple that Spain.

Plastic is not biodegradable which means that it is not able to descompose naturally, just breaking into timier and timier pieces, called microplastics. Millions of fishes eat those microplastics.

What kind of things could we find there? Mainly household waste like plastic bags, plastic bottles, syringes, computers and all you can imagine.

Watching the video, you are going to learn how all these plastics arrive there and why it is possible.

I hope you think twice when you do not recycle.
