NewAir Program for Recycling اعادة التدوير في الكويت

NewAir Program By MRC

What is NewAir?

NewAir program assists participating companies in Kuwait to adopt environmentally friendly practices when disposing office waste.  The aim is to recycle materials where and when possible, thus reducing the landfill areas currently being devoted to the disposal of cans, paper, plastic bottles and other items, e-waste and especially cardboard and plastic packaging.

 I still don’t think the idea of recycling gets to people here in Kuwait, even i wouldn’t be aware of it if it wasn’t for a good friend who works at the MRC in Sulbyia.

Even individually if you’d like to join their program give them a call, a recycling bin will be delivered to your door and then they will be scheduling and coordinating with you on weekly basis on how to collect the stuff you need to dispose from with no cost.

20111105-162546We claim for more of these at government entities, mosques, schools and universities. The only place i saw such garbage disposal was at the Fanar Mall last year. We by nature as human beings will not move and and take a step forward if we do not see team work or at least see actions happening by our own eyes. well, at least some of us.

Rover Curiosity Lands Safely On Mars هبوط ناجح لمركبة على سطح المريخ

Curiosity, the largest and most advanced spacecraft ever sent to another planet, stuck its extraordinary landing Sunday night in triumphant and flawless fashion, and is poised to begin its pioneering, two-year hunt for the building blocks of life signs that Earth’s creatures may not be not alone in the universe.

NASA’s $2.5-billion mission involved the work of more than 5,000 people from 37 states, some of whom had labored for 10 years to hear the two words that Al Chen, a Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineer, said inside mission control at 10:32 p.m.: “Touchdown confirmed.”

Human reached Mars, what do you think will be next? and do you think the planet will actually be suitable for us humans living there someday? lets just wait and see what the next few days will bring us.

تقول صحيفة “لوس انجيليس تايمز” الاميركية انه فور تسلم مختبر وكالة الفضاء الاميركية (ناسا) الصور التي بثتها المركبة الفضائية “كيوريوسيتي” اثر هبوطها بسلام على سطح كوكب المريخ، بدأت الوكالة عمليات البحث عن دلائل قد تفيد بوجود حياة على الكوكب الاحمر.

“وقد هبطت “كيوريوسيتي” وهي اكبر واحدث مركبة فضائية ارسلت الى كوكب آخر مساء امس الاحد بهدوء، وينتظر ان تبدأ البحث خلال السنتين المقبلتين عن مكونات الحياة  اي عن مؤشرات الى ان المخلوقات الارضية قد لا تكون الوحيدة في هذا الكون الواسع

Google Doodle for Alan Mathison Turing’s 100th Birthday

Google on Saturday marked the celebrations of the 100th birth anniversary of computer scientist Alan Mathison Turing with an attractive doodle. Turing, who is also known as the founder of computer science, played a significant role in breaking the wartime Enigma- enciphered messages.

Turing was found dead in his bed by his housekeeper

Alan Turing was born in London on 23 June, 1912 and from a very early age he showed deep interest toward science and mathematics. As he grew, Turing showed exceptional ability in solving advanced problems. His innovative mind conducted several test and also worked on the design of the Automatic Computing Engine (ACE). In 1946, he presented a paper which is known as the first elaborate design of a stored-program computer.

New Sea Creature in the Deep Sea مخلوق جديد في أعماق البحار

A viral video have been floating around the internet for a while now of a new sea creature “Cascade Creature”, and it got 5 million view since April.

Marine biologists say the spooky “Cascade Creature” isn’t a whale placenta, a parachute, a plastic bag or an alien visitor: It’s a type of jellyfish known as a “Deepstaria enigmatica“.

The video, which was apparently captured by a remotely operated vehicle near an underwater drilling site, caused a bit of a stir over the past couple of weeks among weird-science fans. Now it looks as if the truth is out there, thanks to assessments from experts such as Steven Haddock at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute and Craig McClain at the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center.

This bag-like jelly is not that rare, but is large, so rarely seen intact,” Haddock and his colleagues write on the JellyWatch Facebook page. “In the video, the swirling from the sub makes the medusa appear to undulate, and it even turns inside-out.” They provide a helpful picture of a more typical specimen.
