Act the F#ck Now!

Produced by The Big Ask [an organization from the EU], this is definitely one of the more interesting and better made global warming / climate change videos I’ve seen. I mean, I can’t imagine it will change the minds of those guys in the suits, but still - good stuff.

How We Die in 2030

whodeath02.jpg

Let’s be real with it: we’re all gonna die [well, not me - but that’s not the point]. That said - knowing how many of you are going to go could be interesting, in a wicked morbid kind of way. With that in mind, we bring you the World Health Organization’s Global Burden of Disease Report.

whodeath01.jpg

To summarize, the WHO predicts a drop in HIV/AIDS related deaths, and increasing numbers of elderly [yay, you’ll live longer!] that will cause an increase in cardiovascular diseases. Sounds like a blast!

The WHO report updates information on the global burden of disease based on measurements from 2004 and projects how disease will affect the human population through 2030. Perhaps the most significant change it predicts is a global decline in deaths from communicable diseases. HIV/AIDS, the sixth leading cause of death in 2004 worldwide, is expected to peak around 2012 and drop to the number ten position by 2030. Other communicable diseases are expected to decline more quickly; tuberculosis, the seventh leading cause of death in 2004, is expected to plummet to number 23.

The sharp decline in communicable disease death will mean an increased aging population, especially in lower income countries, which means a greater proportion of the global population will die from diseases developed later in life, such as ischemic heart disease and cancers. But changes in global development and behaviors will also contribute to increases in certain causes of death. The WHO indicates that a global increase in tobacco smoking in middle- and low-income countries will bolster deaths from cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and some cancers. And increased transportation development and more crowded roads will help increase deaths from traffic accidents.

Ancient Stash

hinglajmandir.jpg

OTTAWA a€" Researchers say they have located the world’s oldest stash of marijuana, in a tomb in a remote part of China.

The cache of cannabis is about 2,700 years old and was clearly "cultivated for psychoactive purposes," rather than as fibre for clothing or as food, says a research paper in the Journal of Experimental Botany.

The 789 grams of dried cannabis was buried alongside a light-haired, blue-eyed Caucasian man, likely a shaman of the Gushi culture, near Turpan in northwestern China.

The extremely dry conditions and alkaline soil acted as preservatives, allowing a team of scientists to carefully analyze the stash, which still looked green though it had lost its distinctive odour.
