Weightlifters No Match for Insects

first_imgFor Olympic season, here are more comparisons between human and animal capabilities.Weightlifting:  The BBC News showed that, as remarkable as it is for a human to lift 2 or 3 times his body weight, leaf-cutter ants do better: 50x their body weight – and they’re not even contenders for the gold.  A male rhinoceros beetle can lift 850 times its own weight – equivalent to a human world champion “lifting six double-decker buses weighing over 8000 kg.”  There’s more: “But, the species to beat is a tiny mite that has been shown holding forces of up to 1180 times its weight and even pull 530 times its weight on a vertical surface.”Sharpshooting:  The same BBC News article included a video of an archer fish hitting its target in the air from underwater, accurate up to 2 meters.  “This expert in ballistics even allows for the curving of the jet through gravity, and adjusts for the way light bends at the boundary between light and air, which appears to shift the position of its target.”   Blood-spitting cobras are pretty accurate with their shots, too.Boxing:  Animal contenders in the boxing ring include male brown hares and kangaroos, who fight as courtship displays.  As reported here June 13, mantis shrimp have the fastest punch known in the animal kingdom, 23 meters per second.Wrestling:  Champion animal wrestlers include red deer and stag beetles, with their “grand antlers and branching jaws” that lock during combat.  A video clip shows a beetle wrestling match.Swimming: Dolphins have the best skin suits to reduce drag, the BBC News said, with thick blubber for a sleek look.  But it would be hard to beat penguin suits, that glide along through a skin of bubbles.  As for long distance records, remember the polar bear that was observed swimming nine days nonstop? (1/25/2011).In other animal news:Elephants emit long-distance infrasound signals using the same vibrating larynx mechanism as humans, Science Daily reported.  Scientists determined this by testing the actual larynx of an elephant that had recently died of natural causes.Bird airlines:  Migrating birds keep remarkable time, PhysOrg reported.  Songbirds as common as the wood thrush” follow a strict annual schedule when migrating to their breeding grounds – with some birds departing on precisely the same date each year.”  A scientist at York University remarked, Much like airplanes, there are many factors that can influence birds’ flight schedules, such as weather at departure and expected conditions at the other end of the journey. Amazingly, these small songbirds are highly consistent in their timing between years.”These are wonderful stories that call for a film or Powerpoint presentation by someone.  A good entry was the Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution series.  Nature is filled with even more captivating events for us human spectators.  Cheer on our animal champions!

Lima plants the seeds of security

first_imgJust under 20% of the South Africa’s households are directly involved in and dependent on the agriculture sector according to Statistics South Africa (Stats SA). (Images: Lima)A slowing economy coupled with rising unemployment figures means many people have little choice but to grow some of their own food to ensure food security for their families. Thousands of vulnerable households across the country have benefitted from food security projects through Lima Rural Development Foundation.The foundation, a non-government organisation (NGO) established in 1989, is one of the organisations leading the charge to use agriculture to empower South Africa’s rural communities.The development of the communities the organisation worked with was “central to Lima’s focus”, explained Duncan Stewart, its managing director. He was speaking at the organisation’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2014. “Our donors and clients have been relentless in their support of our initiatives. Lima presently has 78 active projects that are being funded by our generous supporters.”It has implemented and is running rural development projects in all nine of South Africa’s provinces to ensure its services reach as many rural and urban communities as possible. It works through partnerships with several private and government entities such as the Department of Human Settlements and Mondi, the packaging and paper company.LIMA’S IMPACT ON RURAL COMMUNITIESAs part of Lima’s efforts over the years to alleviate poverty in South Africa’s rural communities, the NGO has established numerous training and economic development programmes in areas where it has identified the need.A large portion of its efforts has gone to aiding the transformation of the agricultural sector and raising the level of black economic empowerment, with marked efforts to empower women in particular.Among Lima’s many projects are its food security programmes, which help combat poverty and malnutrition in rural areas where food insecurity levels are highest. Given rising levels of HIV and Aids coupled with increasing unemployment, people are given little choice but to grow their own food as prices escalate and opportunities to earn an income dwindle.The foundation helps in this regard to increase food production in selected households by providing nutrition education, technical support and infrastructural development.Its projects cover a wide variety of subjects, such as developing community and school gardens for fresh produce, proper fencing and best practices to reduce costs such as irrigation systems that involve harvesting rain water, pest control and effective composting.Services go on to include disease control, establishing Aids support groups, clubs for the elderly, community-based care givers, homes for orphaned children as well as supporting and developing schools.RURAL LIVELIHOODSUSTAINABLE RURAL COMMUNITIESAccording to the foundation’s website, more than 5 000 vulnerable households across the country have benefited from Lima’s food security projects alone, with thousands more benefitting from other projects such as its engineering or housing projects.“The warmth and love that we receive from rural communities every day is what keeps us sane and motivated,” Stewart said in concluding the foundation’s 25th anniversary celebration. “The dreams and visions of the communities define our future agenda and from them we take our lead.”For more information about the activities of the Lima Rural Development Foundation, visit its website or get in touch via its contact us page.last_img read more
