Biodiversity is everything.

Biodiversity is the foundation for human health, as it underpins the functioning of the ecosystems we depend on for food, fresh water, medicines, as well as disease and climate regulation.

Agrobiodiversity, and its potential to support human nutrition and good health, is a critical component of the global sustainability agenda.

A diversity of species, varieties and breeds, as well as wild sources, underpins dietary diversity, good nutrition, health and environmental sustainability.
Agrobiodiversity sustains healthy diets and livelihoods, and can provide vital sources of micronutrients, essential to good nutrition.
Interacting with microbial biodiversity in the environment, particularly in urban settings, can strengthen our immune system, supporting a healthy microbiota and boosting our resistance to disease.
Our food systems are the greatest drivers of biodiversity loss. The way we grow, process, transport, consume and waste food is leading to land degradation, and declining variety of species, including those used for food and agriculture.
Protecting biodiversity is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, including those related to hunger and health.
Other than what is above I know very little about Biodiversity and Agrobiodiversity save for one thing if it fails so do we because it is about food and disappearing strains of plants that have food and medical use. It isn't just the animal world we have been destroying but the plant world as well.
I want to read more about it and see if there is anything I can do besides sharing information from their website.

Have a Great Day!

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
