Amazing Ghana - Ewe music - MusicAndSoul

This ethnic performer rocks. Her dance movements combined with ethnic rhythms are outstanding. A talented, young performer captures her audiences.
Seeing her is believing in pure, African soul and rhythms. For Connoisseurs of African music, this is imaginary music.

..The Forest Leopard turns, his tail still twitching, and in a sudden movement towards the edge of the forest, it disappears into the thick.
In the time that follows, everyone in the vehicle is silent, deep sunk in his or her own thoughts, figuring out what could have or could not have been, was it not for some greater power protecting them.

Oilspill disaster and associated hazards

At the start of the oil spill cleaning-up campaign I questioned the level of protection for oilspill workers and volunteers, operating in an extremely hazardous working environment.

Increasing by the minute, humans are exposed to toxic vapors (benzines, lighter Hydrocarbons), the risk factor for suffering irrepairable damage to organs becomes greater.

My first thought was : Where are your protective masks ? to those strolling the beaches in search of visible HC 's (tar, etc).

Those on sea, cleaning the slick are no less endangered. Evaporating from under the sea 's surface, the lighter Molecular HC's will cover the water surface and the unfortunate will inhale it invariably, at a tremendous health cost.

More can be read in the clip below. Dhas already been done by the time the nauseous visit the doctor. His bloodstream has become contaminated, the effects of HC toxins have become apparent.

In the final analysis, no worker should have entered the danger zone without activated carbon masks, just as in case of chemical pollution. Why they were not handed out immediately is a question that those responsible for cleaning up OP will have to answer at some stage, be it now or later.
