    Thật ra mỗi thứ Sáu ăn chay cũng phải tưởng niệm Chúa Jesus bị đóng đinh thì cái kiêng cử đó mới có ý có nghĩa. Hồi đó nhà tui ở sát nách nhà thờ Đồng Tiến, chiều nào 4 giờ nhà thờ cũng đổ chuông, hàng xóm những nhà theo đạo Chúa ơi ới gọi nhau đi lễ. Tội nhất là các đứa trẻ, vừa đi vừa càu nhàu. Không biết những đứa trẻ đó lớn lên bây giờ còn đi nhà thờ mỗi chiều hay không. Nhưng khuôn viên nhà thờ Đồng Tiến bự chảng, chúng tớ thả diều bị các ông thầy Sáu rượt chạy rất vui. Các ông thấy dữ, nhưng mà hiền. Rượt bao giờ cũng sắp tóm được thì lại vờ bị đau chân hay hụt hơi.

    Có lẽ các thầy Sáu lười vào trong
    ... đọc kinh cầu nguyện giữ cho linh hồn
    Linh hồn phải giữ linh hồn
    Đến khi bị chết được lên thiên đàng....

    Tèng tèng tèng.

    Nhà hàng công ty của mình thứ Sáu nào cũng ăn chay, cho nên tụi mình qua American Diner, một cái quán cốc dán nhãn Mỹ cạnh công ty mà ăn. Đạo Chúa là quốc giáo xứ Đức mà. Tớ rành sáu câu vọng cổ. Tuy nhiên kiêng là một chuyện làm, nhưng chuyện nghĩ trong đầu là việc khác.

    Bên Đạo Phật các bà các cô các anh sùng đạo, ngày rằm cũng ăn chay. Các tiệm ăn chay khắp Sài-Gòn từ xưa đã đông đúc. Tuy nhiên cũng y hệt vậy thôi. Mọi sự làm từ sự tự nguyện và tự tâm thì mới có ý nghĩa. Cả việc tự ép mình cũng không có ý nghĩa gì.

    Bà Tư đi chợ gặp bà Sáu bán con cá tươi rói. Bà không mua vì hôm nay ngày rằm, bà Tư dặn bà Sáu, rộng con cá lại mai bà tới mua, về nhà bà Tư khoe bà Năm biết tu là cội phúc.

    Bà Tư đâu biết đơn vị thời gian trong sách giáo lý Phật giáo là sát-na. Bà ấy tính theo ngày là sai số bậc hơi bự.

    Bên Mỹ ngày thứ Sáu hàng tuần nhiều tiệm ăn quảng cáo có bán món ăn với cá cho dân Bắc kỳ đạo gốc ăn trưa. Tiệm sushi Nobu của anh Robert de Niro mỗi ngày chỉ mở cửa buổi tối nhưng thứ Sáu thì mở thêm mấy tiếng giờ ăn trưa.

    Có cá đổ vạ cho kiêng.

    Trời sinh lạc đà, trời sinh cỏ:

    Feral camels rounded up in Australian outback and sold online for weed control
    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...r-weed-control

    The camels were sold in seven lots, with prices ranging from $300 a head for three groups of mothers with calves at foot, to $200 a head for cows without calves.

    A lot of 32 bull camels sold for $240 a head.

    Owner Scott Blackett told the ABC the cow and calf groups were sold to a buyer in Winton, western Queensland to be used for weed control.


    They are reckoned to be particularly effective against prickly acacia, a thorny shrub imported to Australia from India that is ranked as one of the 20 worst weeds in Australia.


    Camels were introduced to Australia in the 1840s as pack animals for British explorers. As of 2015 there were an estimated 1m feral camels in Australia, with the population at risk of doubling every nine years without culling.

    They are effective against thorny weeds because they eat everything – according to the Northern Territory government, camels feed on more than 80% of the available plants in central Australia, causing significant damage to desert ecosystems and damaging fragile sand dunes. They have also been known to cause significant damage to manmade infrastructure in search of water, by pulling up pipes and destroying toilet blocks.


    Last year South Australian officials approved the culling of up to 10,000 camels on Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands because the drought had caused camels to converge on settlements in search of water.


    The APY board member Marita Barker
    told the BBC at the time that the camels left the Aboriginal community “stuck in stinking hot and uncomfortable conditions, feeling unwell, because all the camels are coming in and knocking down fences, getting in around the houses and trying to get water through air-conditioners”.

    Black panther sightings near Bari prompt ban on outdoor activities





    By Euronews • Updated: 16/02/2021 - 15:03

    Italian authorities in Bari have warned the public to avoid the countryside after several local sightings of a black panther.

    On Saturday, the mayor of Acquaviva delle Fonti, Davide Carlucci, banned outdoor activities in the area where the animal had been spotted.

    But in a Facebook post showing one sighting of the panther, Carlucci also stated that "there is no cause for alarm".

    "I have signed an ordinance prohibiting cycling and pedestrian transit and the carrying out of any sporting or agricultural activity by citizens on all country roads and roads outside the town of Acquaviva."

    "In order to avoid frightening the feline and cause aggressive behaviour, owners of domestic and farm animals must keep them safe ... to protect them from possible attacks."

    Italian forestry police, under the coordination of the prefecture of Bari, have been patrolling the local area over the weekend using drones. They had confirmed the presence of the animal after finding footprints.

    "Clearly the operation is delicate and dangerous," said Carlucci. "We'll do anything we can to capture the animal and put it to sleep without harming it."

    A similar emergency order was also issued on Saturday by the mayor of Adelfia, Giuseppe Cosola, after a "panther sighting".

    Meanwhile, authorities in the nearby town of Castellana Grotte had been on alert since 4 February after reports of a large black cat "roaming the countryside".

    "The panther was definitely spotted between Acquaviva and Casamassima," Mayor Francesco De Ruvo said on Saturday.

    "In the light of this, unless in the exceptional case of new, proven sightings in the area of Castellana Grotte, I will revoke my emergency order on Monday".

    Vets from a local zoo are also on the scene to monitor sightings of the animal. It is not yet clear where the panther came from.

    "We received a communication from the Enalcaccia Animal Protection Unit of the possible movement of the panther in the "Parco delle sorbe" area ... between Casamassima and Sammichele di Bari," said Giuseppe Nitti, mayor of Casamassima.

    "There is no alarm, but citizens are asked to pay the utmost attention, especially in that area," he said on Facebook.

    In 2019, a black panther was spotted climbing rooftops in a northern French town before it was captured and transferred to an animal protection organisation.

    The animal had been kidnapped overnight from a zoo in Maubeuge, authorities later revealed.

    A census of sea slugs is helping scientists to track climate change

    Sea slugs in the waters around Australia are being used to help researchers better understand climate change.

    Since 2013 the Sea Slug Census, a citizen science programme powered by volunteers, has documented observations of these gastropods along the Australian coast. It was established by Professor Steve Smith of Southern Cross University in New South Wales and more than 40 census events have taken place so far.

    The scheme has recorded more than 630 species, helping improve distributional data for sea slugs and even the discovery of new species too.

    Nudibranchs, which are a group of colourful and striking molluscs, have been particularly useful in understanding the impacts of global warming. This is because they typically have a life span of less than a year, which means they respond more rapidly to changes in their environmental conditions.

    "We think they are a fantastic group to target for citizen science-based monitoring of marine health,” Professor Smith told ABC News Australia.

    So far over 60 species have been found significantly further south than their usual distribution boundaries. This could show shifts in both water temperature and food supplies, as well as the strength of currents.

    "Some of these are 2,500 kilometres further south than they've been recorded before,” added Smith.

    "The East Australian Current is a great mechanism for transporting organisms in their larval stages. One of the things forecast to happen under climate change is the increasing strength and frequency of the East Australian Current.

    "So it means potentially we have this conveyor belt of tropical species which is going to come into our coastal waters more frequently.”

    Warmer temperatures could mean more nudibranchs

    Australia isn’t the only place using sea slugs to learn more about climate change.

    A particular species, the Hopkins’ Rose nudibranch, turned California’s central and northern coastline pink a few years ago.

    Researchers from the California Academy of Sciences, UCSB, UCSC, and Bodega Marine Laboratory began tracking the unusually high distribution of this bright pink sea slug in January 2015.

    Though Hopkins’ Rose nudibranchs are a common sight in southern California, it is unusual to see them in significant numbers further north, as the water temperature is usually too cold to sustain large populations.

    The presence of this particular species of sea slug is thought to be indicative of major climate shifts, and unexpected population booms could be used to measure future changes.

    "While we are thrilled to see this beautiful bloom of normally-rare nudibranchs, we are concerned about the long term consequences of our changing coastal environment," said Dr. Terry Gosliner, Academy Curator of Invertebrate Zoology and Geology at the time.

    "Our current climate conditions are great for some of my favourite slugs, but we can't ignore that warming seas mean less food for sea birds, and adverse impacts for all marine ecosystems. California's unique marine life can't always adapt to so much instability."

    Lâu lâu cũng có họp mặt họ hàng ốc trên bàn nhậu nhưng chưa gặp em này trên dĩa.

    Trong tiếng Hán Việt, vỏ của ngao xò ốc hến là "xác" (殼), vậy mà mấy con cua lấy vỏ ốc làm nhà thì lại gọi là "ốc mượn hồn". Đáng lẽ phải kêu là "cua mượn xác" mới đúng.

    thousands of 'cold-stunned' sea turtles in Texas
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/feb/17/texas-winter-storm-sea-turtles-cold-stunned

    The South Padre Island convention center started pitching in Monday when its neighbor, Sea Turtle Inc, could no longer handle the number of sea turtles being dropped off, and their mostly outdoor operation had lost power. He said the convention center itself didn’t have power or water till early Wednesday morning.

    Caum said that with another cold front approaching, they don’t know when they will be able to return the sea turtles to the water.

    Temperatures in the area on Wednesday afternoon were in the 40s (about 4C). He said it might be Saturday – when temperatures are expected to reach the low 60s (above 15C) – before the turtles can be released back into the Gulf.

    He said with power returned they have been able to bring the convention center’s temperature to 60F (15C).

    “We’re trying to do the best we can to save as many turtles as possible,” he said.

    Cyprus urged to ban hunting at coast to protect flamingoes from shotgun pellets
    https://www.theguardian.com/environm...shotgun-pellet

    Martin Hellicar, the director of Birdlife Cyprus, said flamingos were at risk of ingesting the tiny pellets lying on the lakebed as they fed. Like other birds, flamingos swallow small pebbles to aid digestion but cannot distinguish between pebbles and the lead pellets.“Last year we had tens of losses of flamingos,” Hellicar said.

    Cyprus is a key stop on the migration path for many types of birds flying from Africa to Europe. Larnaca Salt Lake, a wetlands network of four lakes, typically welcomes as many as 15,000 flamingos from colder climates. They stay through the winter and leave in March. Other water fowl to frequent the lake include ducks, waders and seagulls.

    Hunting is banned around most of the salt lake, but hunters are still allowed to shoot ducks in the network’s southern tip.

    The government’s game and fauna service said that in the first two months of last year, 96 flamingos were found dead in the Larnaca Salt Lake wetlands as a result of lead poisoning. Panayiotis Constantinou, a Cyprus veterinary services official who has conducted autopsies on flamingos, said lead from the pellets poisoned the birds.


    The high number of deaths is mainly attributed to heavy winter rain two years ago that stirred up the lake sediment and dislodged embedded lead shot.


    A sport shooting range near the lake’s northern tip closed nearly 18 years ago and authorities organised a cleanup of lead pellets in the lakebed there.


    But Hellicar said the cleanup was apparently incomplete. A European Union-funded study is under way to identify where significant amounts of lead pellets remain so they can be removed. Preliminary results of the study showed very high lead levels in the wetlands’ southern tip, and Hellicar said continued duck hunting there could compound the problem.


    “The problem is pronounced,” he said. “The danger is real for the flamingos and other birds that use the area.”
