Share The Love With The Earth
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we will soon be expressing our love to those nearest and dearest – and maybe that can include our beautiful home planet, after all it needs all the love and care it can get.
Satellite’s orbiting high above primarily deliver critical information to understand how Earth works, monitor how it is changing and also to make our daily lives easier through the myriad of practical applications that rely on satellite data. But images captured from space can also serve as a reminder of Earth’s beauty and, indeed, how fragile it is.
The well-known phrase beauty is in the eye of the beholder means that the perception of beauty is subjective, and with us all ‘beholders’ of our planet – we can all marvel at Earth’s splendor through images from space.
So with Valentine’s Day in mind, we bring you this Copernicus Sentinel-2 image which captures the beauty of the little heart-shaped island of M

It's the beginning of the weekend before Christmas, you've got everything sourced & sorted. From that which you give to that which you consume, like the turkey the nut-roast, the ham, boxes of fruit & veg along with plenty of booze. And it's all thanks to your little piece of plastic, your flexible friend. You're having a well earned rest & a very well earned drink, sitting before a roaring log fire, watching the flames climb up the chimney. You're drawn inward by the warmth of the fire, when suddenly, a face appears in the flames, an old man, his face painted, his long white beard plaited. Smiling, he holds out his hand, beckoning to you.
"Stretch out your hand. Stretch Out Your Hand.
Do you not have a greeting for me? Today of all days. Ending & Beginning Day. The day of Death & New Birth. Try "Solstice Greetings" or "Merry Solstice". You have forgotten me, haven't you.
Your children tell sweet tales of me & you laugh behind their backs. But I tell you; your children are wiser
Monsanto's Genetically Modified Children
Can Monsanto chemicals permanently alter your child’s genes? Low-income tobacco farmers face skyrocketing cancer rates with more
devastating repercussions affecting their children: severe physical deformities and mental disabilities. Choosing between poverty or
poison, Latin American growers have no choice but to use harmful chemicals such as glyphosate (in Monsanto’s Roundup) and Bayer’s
Confidor, if they want to certify and sell their crops to Big Tobacco. As patent and regulatory laws continue to favor the profits of
Monsanto and chemical companies, the tobacco makes its way into the hands and mouths of consumers worldwide in Philip Morris
tobacco products, while the poisons used to harvest the crops contaminate the farmers’ blood and are modifying the human genome,
creating genetically modified children.
Rest In Peace Bryn
Bryn, the Cob Mute Swan, passed away on Wednesday 12th, in the evening. He will be sorely missed, as his partner, Wynn, is sitting on 6 eggs, and will have to try and raise the brood when there's no one to watch their backs. You can see the nest and Wynn sitting, on swancam on https://bishopspalace.org.uk/ Scroll down the homepage 'till you come to it.
Here is a brief look back over my friendship with Bryn, starting in the present.
This is the last time I saw Bryn.
He doesn't like Herring Gulls on his water.
This was the last time he would see his offspring to fledging.

Sent to us at STUKFS Powerful and emotional story from a firefighter who attended Grenfell Tower....
I'm not sure if this is something that I should vocalise or whether or not it should be shared with the world but as I sit at home thinking about the other night the Grenfell Tower I feel like people might want to know how the incident went from the point of view of a firefi
