New Jellyfish Found: Duobrachium Sparksae Comb

2020 was a time of brand new experiences, including brand new species. One species, in particular, being the rare Duobrachium Sparksae Comb Jellyfish. A branch of jellyfishes called comb jellyfish, are oddly shaped and generally ranges from millimeters to 1.5 meters. They don’t sting but have light shows going on inside of their body.

Duobrachium Sparksae

Newly added to the comb jellyfish family are the Duobrachium Sparksae. Founded in 2020 by an unmanned deep-sea explorer. NOAA Fisheries research team launched the submarine and discovered the jelly back in 2015, but it was added this November. The cute, bright, little thing was found to have all the right features, and considered to be a part of the Comb Jelly family!

Duobrachium Sparksae

Eight rows of teeth, no stingers, bioluminescent are all traits that make this beautiful jellyfish a comb jelly. However, this one moves differently.

Duobrachium Sparksae

It looks like a floating tooth in the middle of the ocean. Pretty interesting species and beautiful shape!

The Duobrachium Sparksae moves like a hot air balloon. Floats in the oceans and slowly moves. It even has weighted tails. Could you imagine if they were super large and all around the ocean? It would be a beautiful sight!

Looks like a party balloon with two strings hanging down instead of one. This one is cooler however because it lights up! Imagine if jellyfish could float in the sky. These would be just like fireflies!

What do you think of this new creature? Would you swim with them in the deep of the ocean?

Turning Desert into Forest, in America.

Here at UI, we dream big because undefined ideas are making the impossible seem possible. But we don’t just make new things out of nowhere. Desert forests have existed for years all around the world. Even America has turned a desert into forest, plenty of times, but they call them “cities” instead. However, a forest is just what we plan to do!

In these cities, there are trees covered in sandy soil and rarely any under canopy growth to shield the ground. You’re probably thinking, “well its a desert, isn’t it supposed to be bare and dry?” To that my answer is, “NO”. Plants and trees produce foliage which drop off and turns to compost. Humans have a tendency of raking up the good stuff. and throwing it in the trash.

Desert into Forest

With compost and other ground covers, such as under canopy plants and bushes, we can keep the soil alive and retain more water for the hot and dry seasons. Turning the desert into forest. Not to mention the ground would be green and filled with color and life.

We have been taught to believe that we should keep nature “nature”, but we have been denying that since we were born. Humans have constantly built cities and changed the way nature works for our comfortability. You could say, it’s in our nature to change nature. What if changing nature is actually better for all of us?

Learning how this planet works and the temperatures we need to keep us a safe distance from the sun, is an important factor in keeping humanity alive for the time to come. By growing forests or other projects, we can regulate the temperature of the planet keeping us safe from burning up or freezing to death

Desert into Forest

So, right now, we are in the desert working to build a forest. Every time we go to the city we enter another forest area across miles of desert. We get to show the world, that they have been living in forests and luxury and they can make their forest denser and beautiful with just a few step.

Desert into Forest

UI has a 5-year plan to completed The Forest in the Desert Project. It will cost around 10,000,000 to complete. There will be an agricultural section for stable food, residential for people working and living as well as guests, industrial area (for restaurants, glass making, kiln, AR and VR entertainment, theater, food processing and more), and of course the forest area We currently have 5 people working on the project and will let you know when we have events and parties so you can come and see what we are working on.

The Naked Man Orchid

Flowers come in all shapes, but this one is by far the most symbolic. Shaped like a man, this Naked Man Orchid blooms with dozens of men wearing leaf caps in different colors. If you look close enough, they’re even wearing pants.

Naked Man Orchid

Are these symbols from God or the mathematics of the universe telling us something? When you think of flowers, you think of feminine qualities, but this flower clearly is male. This Naked Man Orchid even has the distinctive male private part.

Naked Man Orchid

I think this is beautiful and all men and their actions can be considered beautiful too. Can the sight of men working together to create one flower or creation be seen as beautiful?

Different colors of these naked men present a vibrant variety and show that the future of these orchids can be in different styles as they’re grown and produced. With the right breeding, they can be bright orange or even green and gold.

Naked Man Orchid

Orchis Italica is the scientific name of this orchid. It’s funny that such a vulgar image is reproduced by nature. Making the image of a naked man not so bad and beautiful as you see them together.

From far away, you would never guess that little men surround the whole stem. Their beautiful nature look like any other flower in a field. The orchid can be found in Mediterranean areas including: the Middle East, Malta, Cyprus, Turkey, the Aegean islands, Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

Naked Man Orchid

Nature has a pretty funny sense of humor, and for one, I welcome it. Incredible things happen all around the world and this is one of those. Tell me what you think of this flower, weird or beautiful?

Natural Swimming Pools, What are they?

Natural swimming pools or ponds are bodies of water large enough to swim in. All while being cleaned using natural methods. Some of these methods include filtering plants, guard animals, rocks that clean water, and an aerator like a pump or waterfall. These pools can provide a safe clean chlorine-free place to swim, as well as introduce friendly wildlife to your area.

How can I make natural swimming pools?

You can start building your natural pool the way you would a regular pond or even a pool. If you have a pool already and would like a natural one, you have the hole and sealed bottom part done. Starting from scratch, you will need to dig a hole to your desired size. Make sure to cut out a terraced ramp, 2 through 18 in, leading to your natural pool. This will be the filtration system. Use thick clay, pond liner, or watertight concrete to keep the water from seeping into any underground caverns. Once the clay, liner, or concrete is dried and set, we can pick out the plants.

Clear Water Revival

What plants do you need to clean natural swimming pools?

Make sure to use plants that suit your environment. The best choice is to get the plants from a supplier of native plants. Both aquatic plants, Sedges (Carex), and rushes (Scirpus) make perfect emerging vegetation for your pools plant-based filter. Lesser cattails (Typha angustifolia) and water irises are also good, but be sure to ask which varieties do not overwhelm other plants.

How can I make natural swimming pools run through plant-based filters?

An aerator will help move water to the filter area, as well as introduce oxygen into the water. Aerators are often pool pumps sending water to an elevated point to run off into a water fall. Water hitting water causes the some of the H2O to break and introduce oxygen from the air into the pool. Oxygen is good for plants and any fish you may have that can help the natural swimming pool remain clean.

Do wildlife come and how to I deal with them?

Wildlife will come to your pond because it’s a source of freshwater. But there are ways to prevent it and keep your water clean and safe. Build your swimming pond in a greenhouse. Koi and minnows keep the water free of insects. Give your water treatments with pond cleansers.

Cheetah, the Worlds Fastest Animal on Land

Animals can be fast! With humans maxing out at 28 mph, the cheetah can run a whopping 58 miles-per-hour. However, they are still not the fastest animal in the world. That record is held by an ocean animal and we’ll talk about them another time.

Cheetahs are notorious for being fast! Growing up, we were told to be fast like a cheetah. Some said that imagine you’re a cheetah chasing a gazelle. I didn’t want to chase gazelles so I said, “I’m going to mix a cheetah and a gazelle and go even faster.”

Close to all wild cheetahs can be located in sub-Saharan Africa, where they inhabit open plains of grassy savannah and forests. A tiny population lives in northeastern Iran, though there are just a few dozen left.

unsplash-logoCara Fuller

The bodies of these large cats grow around 4 feet in length, with a tail ranging around 27.56. Their weight varies around 88.18 pounds and males weighing slightly more.

Cheetahs are typically found in groups. Usually a mother and her babies (who remain together for about six months after leaving their mother). Sometimes a group of males live together. Nevertheless, adult female cheetahs appear to be single. They only encounter males to mate with.

Animals that stick together as a family are pretty cool. They raise their young like humans and then let them go once they are ready.

The Oldest Shark Alive?

Greenland sharks could be 512-year-old, making it the oldest shark known. Did you know that anything can live that long? Believe it or not, some of the rocks you see, on the ground or driving on the freeway could be millions if not billions of years old. We think of life as something fresh like us, but these sharks are possibly older than America!

Born small little things, they grow pretty large, weighing in over a ton. We don’t yet know how big they can get or even how old they could be. All that we have found out so far is that this specific set of research says this one Greenland shark could be anywhere for just over 200 to 512. That’s old.

Justin

They were able to figure out how old the shark was by carbon dating. Scientists and researchers gathered eyelid samples that are sometimes covered with a worm-like parasite. This evidence was taken and evaluated to find a wide date range of 200-500.

Sharks sometimes are able to present their age with thick growth rings, but with Greenland sharks the situation is different. Greenland sharks are not as hard and thick so they have no rings to show their growth. Maybe when we are able to clearly tell the date of this shark, we will be able to judge Greenland shark’s age by size.

Wikipedia.

The carbon test is accurate on land with a 1-3 year difference. In water, especially with a moving being, there are more factors involved which is why there is a 300-year gap.

The Greenest City in the World.

Being human, it’s one thing to be green, but it’s a whole other level to be the world’s greenest city! Copenhagen is currently ‘that’ city. Topped with the opportunity to ski down the roof of a green-energy power station. They have solar-powered boats and you’re able to swim in a clean & safe busy urban harbor. While you’re staying there, you can live in an eco-friendly hotel and dine on vegan food on nearly every street!

unsplash-logoNick Karvounis

All of the people there, businesses and all, contribute to keeping this city the greenest it can be! Going green is a challenge, and these people have structured an entire city to function with Earth and themselves in mind. That’s a lot of love and a lot of work!

Copenhill is their main attraction feature. This man-made, architecturally designed, bedrock strong mountain is actually their waste-to-energy powerplant. Their power comes from their own waste! It makes enough to power tens of thousands of businesses and homes each and every day. They literally don’t waste anything.

On top of that, Copenhill has a constant year-round ski slope. You can hike up it and you can even climb up the walls!

The town seems to have more than its fair share with parks and green areas, and a 70-acre nature preserve is being developed in the North Harbor industrial area. Much of this region, and Refshaleøen across the entrance of the harbor, has been regenerated with sustainable design, like grass roofs that trap rainwater as well as insolate buildings.

Why We Should All Drink More Water.

Water is important, do we really need to drink more? Every human alive has a lot of water inside of them. Roughly 80% of your body is water content. Though some of it isn’t exactly water anymore after running through your lymphatic system. It pearls and turns into different materials to keep your body clean and strong. Thick clear liquids like saliva, might not be water but does have a water content to it. Why is water so important? Heres a few reasons.

It helps keep your body cool.

Water is a huge coolant. That and nitrogens are the biggest components to keeping the Earth cool, including your body. H2O is what creates water. So essentially hydrogen [H], oxygen [O], and nitrogen [N] keep things cool. That’s important in a world where spontaneous combustion and forest fires exist. Water is important because it makes sure your body stays cool.

As stated before, water helps create saliva.

Saliva is a liquid that appears only in your mouth and runs down your throat into your stomach, sometimes in your lungs. But your body produces all kinds of thick and thin clear liquids that use hydrogen & oxygen from the waters we drink. These liquids have many reasons to exist in your body but mainly to keep things clean and hydrated. The chemicals elements in water are some of the strongest fluid elements. Water carves mountains and keeps us from dying in the vacuum of space. Its strength keeps you clean hydrated.

This high in oxygen substance water helps with physical performance.

Oxygen is a hyperactive chemical element. Its natural state is a gas. A gas with cooling capabilities. This means that as you drink H2O you are adding a hyperactive gas to your body that your blood uses to help keep the body moving. O helps your blood stay high vibe [litterally] and rapidly moving so it doesn’t get stuck or slow down.

If you want one of the best watermakers that adds more hydrogen into your water which turns it to 9.5 ph which helps keep your DNA strong and healthy. It also has a sanitary option, where it turns water into 2.0 ph water which is high in acid and can kill 99.9% of bacteria within 30 seconds & 11 ph which can hyper alkalize. This machine creates 4 different types of water as too.

Can a Gorilla Learn English?

Is it possible to teach a gorilla how to communicate? Yes, gorillas are able to learn sign language. Talk about ‘Planet of the Apes’ 2.0.

unsplash-logoMike Arney

Gorillas are the smartest, buffest, hairy, and 100% planet-based. These creatures don’t eat meat or hunt. They chomp on greens and delectable fruits all day every day.

They can range anywhere from 5 feet to 6 feet tall. Speaking of life span, they live for around half the average human, 35-40 years.

unsplash-logoJohnny Chen

Western gorillas weigh an average of 350 lbs. That’s twice as much as the average human.

Koko, a female western gorilla, learned sign language taught by a human named Francine Patterson. This form of sign language was a modified version and called Gorilla Sign Language.

1996: Dr Francine Patterson plays with her kitty-cat friend and Koko. -Chicago Tribune

She was able to use 1,000 signs in her language & could understand over 2,000 English words. Talk about trippy. Koko practically was human. Scientifically, she is the level of a 3-year-old.

Koko recognized nouns, verbs, and adjectives, even “good” and “fake” which are abstract concepts.

It is widely agreed that she would not use syntax or grammar and that her language use did not surpass that of a small human child.

National Geographic

However, on IQ tests, she scores between 70-90. Some specialists, including Mary Lee Jensvold, suggest that “Koko…[used] language the same way people do”.

Koko passed away on June 19, 2018, at age 46. But her language legacy continues as more and more gorillas are being taught how to sign. Koko was the best of them.

The Largest Bird on Planet Earth.

Ostriches are the world’s largest bird. Seemingly false, this bird outsizes all birds. Though some existed that are now extinct. These large birds, not only run Africa, but the world.

Ostriches are huge, flightless birds with long legs and protruding long neck on their round body. Males have powerful black-and-white colors, which they use to attract women.

unsplash-logoOsman Rana

According to the African Wildlife Foundation, they can grow up to 2.7 meters (9 feet) tall and weigh as much as 320 lbs (145 kilograms). The eyes of an ostrich are 2 inches (5 centimeters) in diameter— the largest of any land animal.

The American Ostrich Group says the ostrich is the only bird that has two toes at each foot, all other birds have three or four toes.

Wild ostriches live in Africa’s warm, hot savannas and woodlands. They have been breed and placed all around the United States, Mexico, Canada, and almost every other country. So if the world were to end, ostriches would populate nearly every continent.

unsplash-logoredcharlie

They once roamed across Asia and the Arab Peninsula, but since they were so heavily hunted, the range of wild ostriches has been limited to sub-Saharan Africa, according to the Michigan University Zoology Museum.

The San Diego Zoo said, they prefer plants, roots, seeds, and leaves. Ostriches don’t have to consume water; they get all they need from the plants that they munch on. They still will drink water if they come across some.
