Awesome rock carvings in the Kazakh region of Almaty

Our postcard this week offers a glimpse into the distant past, with prehistoric images in the Kazakh region of Almaty.

Stunning rock carvings or petroglyphs can be found at Tanbaly (sometimes written as Tamgaly), about 170 kilometres northwest of Almaty city.



Key facts about the Kazakh region of Almaty:


The region is in the country’s southeast
It shares a border with Kyrgyzstan & China
It covers an area of 225,000 sq kms
The city of Almaty is the country’s largest


It is a former capital of Kazakhstan

 




Euronews’ Seamus Kearney reported: “More than 5,000 different petroglyphs were discovered by an archaeological team in 1957.

“And in 2004 the entire site, including five different locations, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.”

Rinat Sharipov, a Tanbaly petroglyphs researcher, told Postcards: “Generally we can see petroglyphs with images of animals and people with heads that resemble the sun.

“A lot of the carvings date back to the Bronze Age, between the 14th and 12th centuries BC.”

The sacred images – together with altars, cult locations and burial grounds – are testament to the ancient way of life on the steppes of Central Asia.

Man Narrowly Avoids Collision With Sydney Train After Jumping Onto Tracks

CCTV footage has emerged of a man narrowly avoiding being hit by an oncoming train in southern Sydney after he jumped onto the tracks to cross the platform. The footage, from August 2017 but released on November 6, shows the man rolling onto the platform at Banksia Station a second away from being crushed. The incident was described as “idiotic” by the NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance, who told Nine News he would be reviewing penalties for reckless behaviour at train stations. In a media release, Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins also lashed out at such risky actions. “This is dangerous behaviour that has to stop,” Collins said. "It’s beyond comprehension what goes through people’s minds when they behave like this. It’s time to put a stop to this foolishness. “These are mindless and thoughtless acts that needlessly put lives at risk. They not only delay our services but can be quite traumatising for our customers and our staff who witness these acts.” Credit: Sydney Trains via ViralVids

Sharks And Stingrays Are Alligator Lunch

Sharks and stingrays are fish food for American alligators.

They aren't munching down on adult great whites — instead, stingrays chow down on nurse, lemon, and bonnethead sharks ranging from three to five feet long. Researchers confirmed the phenomenon by pumping the stomachs of 500 live alligators. Their usual far consists of turtles, fish, and small mammals, but the alligators also hunt sharks along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts where they sometimes venture into each other's waters.

Great for the gators — but maybe not so good for the sharks.

No Criminal Charges Have Been Made in Prince’s Death On Thursday, Carver County attorney Mark Metz made the announcement due to the lack of evidence of how the musician obtained the pills. Quote: “Prince had no idea he was taking a counterfeit pill that could kill him.” The ‘Purple Rain’ singer, born Prince Rogers Nelson, died at the age of 57 on Apr. 21, 2016 after overdosing on pills that contained the powerful painkiller fentanyl. He was found unresponsive at his home and recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Dr. Michael Schulenberg, the physician who saw Prince in the two weeks before his death, offered to pay $30,000 to the U.S. to settle a federal civil violation. According to CNN, Schulenberg’s attorney denied liability but offered the settlement “in order to avoid the expense, delay, and unknown outcome of litigation.”

Here’s Why Americans Aren’t Eating Guinea Pig
videoelephant
2018-04-19    0 views
You can legally eat guinea pig in the U.S., but we still don’t really do it that often. Eating guinea pigs is an ancient tradition in many different parts of South America. In Peru alone, around 65 million guinea pigs are eaten every year. So why aren’t American’s eating them too?

In the U.S., most of us associate guinea pigs as cute cuddly animals. It’s hard to get past that association, so the idea of eating them seems a little grizzly. But it’s something you might want to consider. Guinea pigs require way fewer resources than other animals and the reproduce like crazy so it’s easy to keep them in stock.

This makes them less expensive and more environmentally friendly. The guinea pig market is also helping farmers in other countries get out of poverty. What’s more is that serving the little rodents is actually legal in the states. It’s considered an exotic meat — in the same category as venison, rabbit and bison. But many people would sooner eat rabbit than they would a guinea pig. It’s sale of guinea pig of regulated by the FDA and some restaurants do sell it. So any it’s time to give it a try — it could become your new favorite protein.

European artists create huge beach artworks to help plastic pollution fight

2018-04-19    0 views
Beach artists across Europe have put their creative talents on show to draw attention to marine-based plastic pollution.

They have made huge artworks on sand to highlight the issue.

Artworks have been created near Bordeaux in France; close to the German-Danish border; in Porto, Portugal; in Devon, England; and near Cadiz, Spain.

It is part of raising awareness of sea-based plastic pollution ahead of Earth Day on Sunday, April 22.

Tim Hoekstra, who produced one of the artworks, said: "Every time I come to the beach, I see washed up plastic, mostly food and drink packaging. It has got much worse in recent years. It makes me sick to think that our kids might never know what a clean beach or water is really like.”

Campaigners say up to 12 million metric tonnes of plastic enters our oceans every year and that it is expanding at a catastrophic rate .

Piotr Barczak, waste policy officer at the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), who commissioned the artwork, said: "Plastic is no longer fantastic, in fact it is out of control. Countless billions of tiny toxic particles are polluting the land, water and even the air.

"It’s a sorry situation, but at least we are waking up to the problem and political leaders are starting to take action. Industry still hasn’t woken up to public concern about the mess its products are creating. They need to dramatically rethink how they get their goods to us without endless plastic.”
