UK's Trade in Illegal Rhino Horn

Eight poachers attacked a Rhino orphanage at Thula Thula using a machete on two 18 month old orphans whose mothers had already been slaughtered for their horn. Impi was orphaned at two months old; he laid beside his mother's butchered carcass for six days, eating mud, until rescuers found him close to death.  More than 700 Rhinos were slaughtered in South Africa in 2016.  According to the Zoological Society, a Rhino is hacked to death every 11 hours. Traffickers from the UK are trading in Rhino horn, buying online from middle-men who operate from South Africa, Egypt, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea and who sell it for £20,000 per lb.

Yoga Is Skill In Action


The basis practice of yoga is self-inquiry which, through this process, we create change within ourselves. Before I started practicing yoga, I was more selfish and immature. The grass always seemed greener on the other side of the fence. Yoga changed my world perspective and philosophy in a way that has helped me live my life with more grace and integrity. I care for myself and others more deeply, my eating habits have become conscious choices and my friendships have evolved. I no longer spend time with people who are addicted to drinking and drugs, or those that spend their time gossiping about other people. I look for people who help me feel good about myself and those who are more happy and have goals in their life.

Hypnosis by Jim Francis

Most of us have a set of unique fears that relate to our own lives, like concerns about loved ones, financial worries and so on; but there are also many “universal” fears – or perhaps you might call them “collective” fears – that are communicated to us through our environment. These fears often relate to situations and events that leave us feeling vulnerable and defenseless, such as worldwide 'pandemics', 'terrorist' attacks, economic and financial crises, and so on.
