Peace Day or International Day of Peace is celebrated annually on 21st September around the world and also known as World Peace Day. Peace Day is celebrated to encourage people among the countries also a day of ceasefire. International Day of Peace was declared by the UN General Assembly as this day is dedicated to ideals of peace both within and among all the nations and people.
Every year United Nations decided the theme for International Day of Peace to promote peace among the people of all nations. Last year the theme of 2018 peace day was “The Right To Peace” and this year the theme of International Day of Peace is ” Climate Action for Peace“.
This theme was decided under the Sustainable Development Goal 13 “Climate Action” which is an immediate call for the greenhouse emissions and to improve education on Climate Change. The Sustainable Goals covers a broad range of issues including poverty, health, education, climate change, hunger, gender equality, water, sanitation, environment, and social justice

This year theme draws attention to the issues and importance of climate change which is a new way to promote peace among the people throughout the world. Climate Change is a major threat to peace and security which can cause Natural disasters three times as the conflicts between many people.
According to climate change, water crises can become a clear threat to peace and as per the current situation of water crises in the world, it can create war-like situations among the countries.
Peace can be only achieved by taking strict actions, speaking to young people in New Zealand the UN Secretary-General António Guterres said that “Nature does not negotiate” the Government should take four key measures like tax pollution, the subsidizing of fossil fuel should be stopped, building of new coal plants should be stopped by 2020, should focus on making green economy, not grey.
On 15 May 2019, the Secretary-General António Guterres said, that “It is possible to achieve our goals, but we need decisions, political will, and transformational policies to allow us to still live in peace with our own climate.”
In 1981, International Day of Peace was established by the United Nations and after two decades later in 2001, the General Assembly voted the day as a period of Non-Violence and Cease-fire. After that in 2002, the U.N. declared it is a permanent holiday.
What youth can do for Peace Day
This year International Day of peace for Student Observance will inspire our youth to step out for a challenge of climate change, half of the youth around the world are taking action on climate change in their homes, schools, and communities.
The Student Observance will take place on 20th September 2019 at United Nations Headquarters, which will help in providing a platform for young people who made projects undertaken to fight for climate change while promoting peace.
Even if most surgical techniques of today are rather recent developments, people have been cutting each other up in the hopes of fixing various diseases for a long time now. Surgery has a long history and shows up in historical records from various regions of the world. However, early humans did it more to see what was inside the body than because they knew how to fix certain diseases.
On the other hand, modern surgery is a marvel of medical science. We now use it to do things like organ transplants and plastic surgery that we didn’t even know was possible until very recently. That doesn’t mean that we have it all figured out, though, as the field of surgery still has many unresolved mysteries and interesting facts that most people don’t know about.

If you ever talk to a surgeon about undergoing a surgical procedure, he’ll go to great lengths to assure you that you won’t feel a thing. While that’s largely true as general anesthesia should take care of that, it hasn’t worked as intended quite a few times.
According to one study, about 1 in 1,000 patients wake up during surgery in the United States every year. Although most of those cases occur at the beginning or end of the operation, it happens quite a bit in the middle, too. Around half of all patients who wake up during surgery also end up developing PTSD and depression, which is quite understandable as it sounds like a horrific experience.
It’s made worse by the paralytics administered with anesthesia before the surgery as they render the patients unable to alert the surgeons. Pain may not be involved in all cases, though the mere act of seeing someone cutting you up and doing things inside your body is enough to mess with the brain for a long time.
It’s difficult to imagine, but surgeries were done without any type of anesthesia for the overwhelming majority of human history. Things like medicinal plants and alcohol were used, though a drink can hardly numb the pain of, say, someone cutting up your leg with an ax.
In light of that, you’d think that doctors would have jumped at the idea of anesthesia when it was first developed. As is the case with most of history, however, common sense isn’t how we used to do things back then.
Initially, anesthesia was an unpopular procedure in places around the world, especially in the US. While some surgeons cited the ridiculous “it doesn’t feel like surgery unless the patient can feel everything” excuse, others went with the old “satanic influence” card.
There were some legit reasons, too, like the possibility of death due to overdose. Most surgeons back then didn’t know the proper amount of anesthesia to be administered.
We’ve grown up to believe that the maximum number of hearts that can possibly reside in a human body is one. It makes sense, too, as the heart is one of the most important organs of the body and is perfectly capable of performing its functions alone.
That’s not the case in some acute cases of late-stage heart failure in which the heart requires additional support to function. Medical researchers could have come up with an external setup—like dialysis—to help with it, but they figured that just sticking another heart in there would do the trick, too.
Known as a heterotopic heart transplant, it involves taking a heart from a donor and putting it alongside the existing heart for assistance. While the procedure isn’t as widely used in the US anymore (as we have better techniques to do the same thing now), it’s still a possible surgical option if it’s needed.
The placebo effect is one of the most fascinating aspects of medical science. While we currently have no idea about the extent to which it works, we know that it can be effective.
It has been successful even when the patients are told that they’re getting a placebo. Research suggests that the placebo is as effective with surgical procedures as with day-to-day ailments.
Many studies have found that just telling patients that they went through a surgery, even if they didn’t, is enough to have the same effects as those experienced by patients who actually underwent an operation. It only works with certain surgical procedures like a knee arthroscopy as you’d still have to undergo a real surgery for more complicated conditions (like heart failure).
When we talk about transplants, certain organs simply don’t seem to qualify for the procedure. The head is one of them as the ability to put someone’s head on another person is straight out of science fiction.
While it’d be dishonest to say that we already have that tech, it’s surprisingly close to being developed. Some researchers have already made huge strides in making it happen in recent times, and it may not be long before we’re finally able to do it.
The basic idea is exactly what you’d imagine: Just cut off ahead from a donor, place it on someone’s torso, and hope it sticks. We were quite close to making it happen, but the first volunteer for the procedure recently backed out, which was probably a sensible decision on his part.
Being born seems to be one of the most basic qualifications for being able to get surgery. Apart from the incredible difficulty of operating on an unborn baby, it sounds like something straight out of the future. That is, of course, if you don’t include the recent surgery done on a baby in the womb in the UK.
The baby was suffering from spina bifida—a birth condition wherein the spine and spinal cord aren’t properly formed in the womb. The mother had the option to either wait for the baby to be born and then fix the problem, get the doctors to operate in utero, or just terminate the baby (which most of us won’t go for).
She opted for the in utero surgery as the condition is much more difficult to cure once the baby is fully developed and born. In a four-hour operation, the surgeons sliced up the mother’s womb, operated on the baby’s spine, and put it all back together like nothing happened. The baby was born in April 2019 with no signs of the condition.
Even if it’s a staple of surgeon jokes around the world, you’d think that accidentally forgetting surgical instruments inside a patient during an operation isn’t that common. After all, surgeons are some of the most skilled and qualified medical professionals around.
If someone can open up a body, fix whatever’s wrong inside, and close it back up as a part of their daily job, it’s safe to assume that they have the presence of mind to not leave a pair of tweezers inside. Surprisingly, that’s not the case at all.
Across the globe, surgeons frequently leave a wide variety of objects inside their patients, including forceps, surgical masks, and needles. There are many reasons, such as more than one surgeon being involved in the operation or simply not keeping track of their surgical inventory.
As of now, we don’t have a surgical procedure to transplant the human eye. While some parts of the eye can be transplanted, replacing the whole eye with that of another person is still some way into the future.
What we do have, however, is a way to put a tooth into the eye to restore vision. It may sound like something straight out of a bad sci-fi horror movie, but the procedure—known as osteo-odontoid-keratoprosthesis—has been around for a long time.
It involves making a hole in the tooth, placing a prosthetic lens in it, and putting the tooth into the eye to serve as the cornea. It does look a bit horrifying, though it has helped to restore vision for quite a few patients with damaged corneas. As the tooth is from the same body, there’s a minimal chance of the body rejecting the tissue and causing problems later.
When a 56-year-old German man lost a part of his lower jaw to cancer, he had two options: live the rest of his life without a jaw or go for an experimental technique developed by researchers at the University of Kiel. He went with the latter and became the first patient in history who had a jaw grown on his back.
They used the model of his head to create a titanium cage resembling his jaw, filled it with bone mineral blocks, and coated it with bone marrow. They also filled the cage with a protein to accelerate bone growth and implanted it under his right shoulder blade.
To everyone’s surprise, the jaw developed like a normal jaw for a few weeks. Then it was removed and grafted onto his face. He quickly redeveloped the ability to chew, though he still didn’t have any teeth. It was some time before it could be used as a normal jaw.
Anesthesia has been one of the most important medical discoveries in our history. Before it, patients had to be completely conscious and in excruciating pain during surgery, which wasn’t fun for anyone involved. Due to anesthesia, operations are now much quieter affairs.
Even so, we still have little idea about why anesthesia works. The mechanisms of the brain that make us enter a deep state of unconsciousness under anesthesia—no matter what happens—are a complete mystery to scientists. In essence, a patient under general anesthesia could be understood to be in an artificial coma, though that’s about all we know about it.
That’s why anesthesiology is a whole science on its own and anesthesiologists are some of the most skilled and in-demand medical professionals around. Moreover, it ties into the larger mystery of consciousness itself.
Understanding what anesthesia does to the brain would take us one step closer to answering one of the biggest questions of life: “What part of the brain makes us conscious and self-aware?”
The Earth has been around for around 4.5 billion years, and it is tempting to hope that it (and us, for that matter) will still be here in few a billion more. Of course, our world faces a number of ongoing problems that, at the very least, call the planet’s long-term habitability into question.
However, it’s entirely possible that we won’t need to worry about those issues because there are several ways in which the world as we know it could be wiped out. Today. And only some of them would be down to the stupidity of mankind, which is comforting if you think about it.
A gamma-ray burst (GRB) is an explosion of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation. A burst can give off a stream of energy greater than the Sun could produce in ten billion years, and it would happen in seconds. Scientists believe that GRBs may be caused by exploding stars or by collisions of neutron stars.
It is estimated that if the Earth were to be hit by a gamma-ray burst that occurred within the Milky Way, it would chemically damage our atmosphere, depleting the ozone layer, which protects us from ultraviolet rays, thus triggering a mass extinction. Some scientists also believe that gamma-ray bursts may give off cosmic rays, which would cause radiation sickness in anyone who managed to survive the initial impact of the GRB.
Most bursts last for less than two seconds, but a long GRB (one which lasts longer than two seconds) hitting us could cause a mass extinction on Earth. Luckily, they normally occur in far-off dwarf galaxies, but they have happened nearer to home, and scientists have speculated that gamma-ray bursts may have been responsible for past mass extinctions on Earth.
9Giant Solar Flare
In July 2012, a solar superstorm almost ended the world as we know it. If you are wondering how you could have missed the wall-to-wall coverage of this near-miss, don’t bother. There wasn’t any.
When the giant solar flare, or coronal mass ejection, tore into the Earth’s orbit, our planet had just moved out of its path, so NASA thought it was best not to mention it. Had it hit a week earlier, it would have fried our electrical devices. The flare would have caused devastation estimated to be 20 times greater than Hurricane Katrina, and the resulting damage would have taken at least 20 years to repair.
As bad as that sounds, you may think that this does not amount to mass extinction. However, it has been theorized that an even bigger solar flare was the cause of an extinction event around 12,000 years ago when evidence suggests that the Earth was exposed to intense UV rays for a prolonged period due to damage to the ozone layer.
A study in 2017 determined that there is a “solid chance” that a giant solar flarecould hit the Earth within the next century, causing an estimated $10 trillion in damage. They found that extreme super-flares occur on the Sun once every 20 million years or so, and it seems we are due. They put the odds of an extinction event-type impact as one in 1,000, which isn’t that bad, but the odds of an impact which wipes out our electrical and technological capability are more like one in eight.
8Flood Basalt Events
This eruption, known as a flood basalt event, caused an increase in global temperature, a doubling of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and the acidification of the oceans. Some scientists believe that almost all mass extinction events in the history of the Earth have been connected to these flood basalt eruptions, rather than more popular culprits like asteroids.
The first consequence of a flood basalt event is actually cold. The fire fountains caused by the eruptions spew sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere, which reflects sunlight away from the Earth. This would be followed by acid rain and then respiratory illnesses. Livestock would die, and aircraft would be grounded. As time passes, however, the planet would actually get warmer due to all the carbon dioxide and water vapor introduced into the atmosphere by the event.
Work is still ongoing to try to determine how often these flood basalt events are likely to occur and, more importantly, when the next one is due.
7A Mishap With The Large Hadron Collider
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a 27-kilometer underground ring in which particles are smashed together at incredibly high speeds. Using the force of 9,300 magnets, the scientist can cause 600 million collisions per second in a kind of subatomic demolition derby.
Conditions at CERN’s main site, where the collider is kept, are strictly controlled. But accidents can happen with particle accelerators. In 1978, a Russian scientist put his head in a particle accelerator and was hit by a burst of protons traveling at nearly light speed. He was hit by 76 billion electron volts but lived to tell the tale, though doctors did not expect him to survive.
In 2009, the LHC was shut down when it began to overheat. The cause was found to be a piece of bread, dropped on an electrical substation above the collider. Most people thought that it was dropped there by a stray bird, but a pair of respected physicists, convinced that the research into the Higgs boson particle was detrimental to the fate of the universe, came up with a theory that involved a time-traveling saboteur bird sent from the future to stop the experiments.
As bizarre as they sound, they are not alone in their concerns about the collider. Astronomer Professor Lord Martin Rees has warned that a mistake at CERN could cause a “doomsday scenario” in which the entire planet is sucked into a black hole which would compress the Earth into a hyperdense mass spanning just 100 meters (330 ft) across. And if that isn’t bad enough, there is also a theory that a mistake in the collider could cause an accident that would “engulf space itself.”
The search for intelligent life in space has been a consuming one for many scientists and astronomers. However, not everyone thinks that looking for aliens a good idea. Professor Stephen Hawking believed that instead of trying to make contact with alien life-forms, we would be better served by trying to hide from them.
He postulated that given the number of planets we know exist, there must be other life-forms in the universe, least some of which will be of superior intelligence, with greater technological and military capability. And, Hawking suggested, if they did come, it would be more in the manner of a conqueror than an ambassador.
If aliens do make contact with Earth, it’s possible that the Chinese will be the first to hear them, since they have invested heavily in alien contact technology, building the world’s largest radio dish for this purpose. But if aliens do make contact, there is no single protocol for how Earth will collectively respond, nor is there anything to stop enthusiastic amateurs from projecting any message they like to listening aliens.
And what if they don’t call first but just show up? Given the amount of resources required and the length of time it would take, it is unlikely that it would be for a casual visit. As Stephen Hawking said, “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans.”
Even without the help of CERN, there is a possibility that Earth could be swallowed by a black hole. A black hole is defined as a concentration of mass great enough that the force of gravity prevents anything from escaping it, even light.
There are many things that can cause a black hole. One of the stars of the Eta Carinae stellar system, for example, is close to going supernova. It is even possible that it has already exploded, but the image of the event still light-years away.
When the star does go, its core could collapse in on itself, forming a neutron star or a black hole. Some have claimed that if a black hole does form, it will swallow the remains of Eta Carinae and could take the Earth with it. Scientists have said that this is extremely unlikely, however.
All the same, it is possible, albeit with long odds, that a rogue black hole could happen upon our solar system. If that were to happen, the Sun and all the planets would likely be ripped apart.
The threat of nuclear war has hung over the Earth since the mid-20th century. Though the threat has waxed and waned over the decades, the potential for nuclear war appears to have become more prominent in the last few years.
Should a nuclear war break out today, it has been predicted that the fallout would be “similar to the extinction of the dinosaurs.” Soot created from the destruction would alter the climate, cooling the Earth’s surface and heating the upper atmosphere, with “potentially devastating effects.”
Nuclear war was narrowly averted during the Cuban Missile Crisis by a combination of public tough talking and private diplomacy on both sides. Khrushchev wrote to Kennedy, “If there is no intention to tighten that knot and thereby to doom the world to the catastrophe of thermonuclear war, then let us not only relax the forces pulling on the ends of the rope, let us take measures to untie that knot.”
Today, the threat of nuclear war is again said to be “dangerously close,” and the fate of the world may lie in the diplomatic skills of various nations and their leaders.
Campi Flegrei is a supervolcano nestled in the Bay of Naples. The volcano, whose name means “burning fields,” consists of a vast network of underground chambers, filled with magma, largely under the sea. Campi Flegrei has not erupted for over 500 years (and that was a tiny one), but it seems that this may soon change. In December 2016, volcanologists warned that the volcano could be reaching “critical degassing pressure,” which could lead to an eruption.
That would be bad. Around 39,000 years ago, the volcano once “punched” 300 cubic kilometers (72 mi<sup<3< sup=””>) of molten rock 70 kilometers (43 mi) up into the air and emitted 450,000 tons of sulfur dioxide. The ash landed as far as 2,000 kilometers (1,200 mi) away. The eruption had devastating, centuries-long consequences for Europe. The sulfur dioxide released by the eruption precipitated a volcanic winter, covering the land in ash 20 centimeters (8 in) deep and blocking heat from the Sun.</sup<3<>
Nor is Campi Flegrei the only supervolcano in existence. Lake Toba in Indonesia, Yellowstone Park in the US, and the Taupo caldera in New Zealand are all the sites of supervolcanoes which have the potential to wipe out large swathes of the population and turn the land into desert, should any of them erupt. Experts are working to be able to predict when the eruptions are likely to occur. Geologists studying the Yellowstone supervolcano believe that there is an average gap of 740,000 years between eruptions, which would mean that Old Faithful should be safe for at least another 100,000 years.
Lets hope all supervolcanoes are just as reliable.
Most apocalyptic scenarios involve drama, danger, and a high degree of explosions. But how about a microbe that spews methane?
It has been theorized that just such a catastrophe occurred 252 million years ago, killing 90 percent of marine creatures and 70 percent of those on land in one of the five major mass extinctions in the history of the Earth. They believe that Methanosarcina, a microbe that produces methane, grew unchecked in the oceans, causing the climate to heat up, resulting in the acidification of the seas and the extinction of life. The microbe flourished on the minerals produced by large-scale volcanic eruptions in Siberia, which increased the concentrations of nickel required for its growth.
So, how likely is it that another methane burst will wipe out life on Earth? Well, quite likely, it seems. It is believed that the Arctic is a “ticking time bomb” of methane. Methane is said to be trapped in the permafrost in the form of methane hydrate and methane clathrate. Should too much ice melt, a world-ending mass extinction event could be triggered.
The universe is held in a vacuum. And our vacuum is jostled up against the vacuums of other universes. However, some of these vacuums are not true vacuums. And if the vacuum of a universe is a false vacuum, it is potentially unstable, or “metastable.”
If our universe is held in a false vacuum, then any high-energy event, such as an exploding star, might cause part of our universe to knock against the true vacuum of an adjoining universe, which would create a bubble that would expand at the speed of light and suck the entire universe in.
Not only that, but a universe that was sitting, minding its own business, in a false vacuum, can be “tunneled into” by a tiny particle that broke through the barrier separating one vacuum from another, which would also result in the false-vacuumed universe being sucked into the other.
So, do we live in a vacuum or a false vacuum? It is not certain. However, work on the measurements of the Higgs boson seem to indicate that our vacuum may be metastable. It is predicted that if we were to be sucked into a true vacuum, we would all be annihilated instantly as the bubble wall moves through our galaxy at the speed of light. There would be no survivors.
It’s not all bad news, though. The lifetime of a metastable universe is thought to be especially long, so we will probably be okay for a while. And if we are all sucked into a vacuum, it would happen so fast that we wouldn’t know about it.

While naming your dog might not have the exact same life significance it is a title you and your puppy is going to live with for quite a while, therefore it warrants some thought. A name that is fantastic enhance communication between you and can improve your pet’s responsiveness. For example, dogs have a simpler time hearing tough consonants and long vowels, thus a name such as “Lucky” or “Benny” will probably be simpler for him to differentiate from other noises. Most specialists recommend a one or title which you are able to state. Additionally, it is commonly suggested that you avoid names that sound like controls, by way of instance, “Kit,” which seem like “sit,” or even “Joe,” which seems just like “no.” Decide on a title you like to states (so you will not be ashamed crying across the puppy park). You are going to be stating his name a great deal as an attention grabber or at these talks all pet fans have with their pets.

Start with strategic thinking. As an entrepreneurial photographer, you should set the bar high. Not only as a businessperson but as an artist. Part of it is putting your studio in a location where people will seek you out. In order to write this eBook, I’ve sought out different photographers from different areas to speak with. The pattern was consistent how much location matters. The best thing to do is start by visiting local studios and by running web-searches on studios worldwide. First figure out which studios are most successful. Then study the location of each. Most people (if they can afford to) will open their business on either main-street, the business-distract or a location of high-visibility. While being in public sight is important to success, it will also have an effect on your bottom-line. Don’t be afraid to start out at a cheaper, less visible location; and, in order to make up for it, work hard on developing your reputation and with running promotions. Once you’ve established yourself, move to the pricier location. In the meantime you will have incurred not only less expense; but, in the case of debt, on outgoing interest rates. While the old adage that ‘money breeds money’ generally holds true, some of the biggest fortunes in the world were build on hard work and frugality. Take the example of the wealthiest man in the world, Warren Buffet, who got his start by running a paper route.
TIP Look at the pattern of the most successful millionaires in the world: None of them ever lost sight of their goal. In the case of the Entrepreneurial Photography: Never lose sight of your art!
In the process of building your business and developing your pricing structure, keep your eyes on operating profit. It tells you the percentage of sales that become profit. The operating profit excludes other expenses such as taxes. Because of this it gives an accurate picture of the profitability of your studio and an idea how to price your work. If there are reductions in this figure over time, you might need to reassess your pricing structure and/or find ways to reduce your operating expenses (such as by minimizing exposure).
On asking a businessman I know recently about how he’s fighting the recession, he stated that minimizing exposure was a key factor. “For those ready to jump, the money and opportunity will be there,” he stated. A high priced newspaper ad may yield a nice return in terms of traffic but it may also cause you to do more work for less profit once the price of the print run is deducted from operating profit. This doesn’t mean you should run off and hide because there’s a downturn, it means now is the time to hone your skills as a marketer and to find what works best. Read articles online by marketers and other photographers, keep a close eye on competition (i.e. what’s working for competitors and what isn’t), and keep things moving. Practice, keeping an eye on the market, and trial and error will build your skills as a marketer. Some of the best selling products and services aren’t those that are priced the most aggressively, not the best products nor are they the most original. They are the ones that are packaged and marketed the intelligently.
Above all- think big. Aim for 150% growth rather than 50%. Think for yourself and never give up in your art or your business.
Remember that marketing can be as important as the end product of your art. The difference in the entrepreneurial photographer and the conventional is that the entrepreneurial photographer knows how to balance business and art; promotion and marketing; props and portfolio. The difference comes from knowing how to make money with your work. The difference comes from knowing how to simultaneously push the boundaries of both your art and your business model.
As in any other business model, the following components are needed for success.
1.) Competitive Strategy
2.) Value Proposition
3.) Value Chain
4.) Revenue and Margin
5.) Competitive Margin
A key element in finding sustainability as an entrepreneur and photography is being able to weather- in the same was as we have storms, hurricanes, seasons, rainy and sunny days; and somewhere out of there- the end of the rainbow- economics cycles as they present itself. Try to go above and beyond ordinary strategic thinking and prepare business plans to use in different economic climates and focusing on different types of photography. Here are a couple starter plans to prepare for your business.
