Just the facts



The Hippopotamus is found in sub-Saharan Africa, and its name literally means 'River horse.' It's the third largest land mammal after the Elephant and the Rhinoceros. It spends most of its time in water, only coming on land to graze on grass. Staying in water helps keep its body cool during the day. It also gives birth to its young in water.

Milk and Honey

milk and honey

The term “milk and honey” goes way back to the times of antiquity? The Bible mentions “a land flowing with milk and honey” (or land of milk and honey), signifying prosperity and abundance in several scriptures as Exodus 3:8, 17; Leviticus 20:24 and Deuteronomy 26:9. The Bible also indicates that they were part of the everyday diet of the Israelites, used in cooking and also used as cosmetics.

Statue Of Liberty

Brooklyn Bridge and The Statue of Liberty at Night

The Statue Of Liberty which is located on Liberty Island (formerly Bledloe’s Island), in the New York harbor, USA was designed by French sculptor, Frederic Bartholdi. It was a gift from the people of France to commemorate the American Declaration of Independence. Though it was constructed in France, it was sent to the United States in bits within crates, after which it was assembled on its pedestal. It was later dedicated on October 28, 1886.


Just the facts on tatooTatoos are actually not new and began from Bible days? Under the Old Testament, God said to Israel through Moses: “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead nor print or tattoo any marks upon you; I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:28 AMP). They actually pose health dangers and may lead to a life of regret later.

Though tattoos might appear to be harmless, common, and gaining acceptance in the world, they shouldn’t be played with as they pose certain problems for the body.

The Red Sea

The Red Sea is a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean; it lies between Africa and Asia. It is one of the warmest, saltiest, and possibly the reddest sea around the world. It contains alga called ‘Trichodesmium Erythraeum’ which turns the original blue-green colour of the sea water, reddish-brown. Hence the sea’s name as the “Red” Sea.

The sea is underlain by the Red Sea Rift, which is part of the Great Rift Valley and it’s home to over one thousand invertebrate species, and two hundred soft and hard corals. It is the world’s northernmost tropical sea. The Red Sea is one of four seas named after common colours — the others being the Black Sea, the White Sea, and the Yellow Sea.
