Woodpeckers…

Woodpecker is in actuality mind-blowing bird; there are approximately 200 classes of woodpecker live in the jungle and woodlands worldwide. Woodpeckers are found on every continent with the exception of the Polar Regions, Australia and Madagascar. The smallest kind of woodpecker is the Bar-breasted Pickled that only grows to 8cm in height. The Gray Salty woodpecker from south East Asia is the largest breathing woodpecker in the world with some of these woodpecker individuals growing to nearly 60 cm tall. The woodpecker has a distinctive long beak, which the woodpecker uses to make holes in trees. The woodpecker does this in order to dig out the grubs living under the bark. The average woodpecker is able to peck up to 20 pecks per second! The woodpecker is only able to peck so much and move its head so quickly without getting a headache due to the air pockets that help to cushion the woodpecker’s brain. Here i collected different woodpecker images.

Shanxi Province in China

Shanxi is one of the birth places of Chinese civilizations with a long history and traditional culture. As early as one hundred million years ago, the ancestors of the Chinese lived and propagated in this region. Legend tells us that the Yellow Emperor, founder of the Chinese nation, once lived in Shanxi for a certain period. Today, many Neolithic sites from that period can still be seen dotted across the vast expanse of the province.

Shanxi Province got its name due to its location to the west of Taihang Mountain. Shanxi neighbored on Hebei, Henan, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia & Autonomous Region. It is located to the east of the Yellow River, and is also known as Hedong. Shanxi belonged to Jin State in Spring and Autumn Period, so it is abbreviated in Jin. Shanxi occupies an area of 156,000 square kilometers (about 60,000 square miles) and has a population of over 32 million, including its minority ethnic population. Its capital is Taiyuan City.


Being at a high altitude, Shanxi Province has a cold and dry climate and has an annual rainfall of between 400-600 millimeters. The province is also frequently plagued by sandstorms, especially in the spring, so it is often useful to bring along both sunglasses and a hat when visiting. Generally speaking, the province’s climate is the best between May and October.

Shanxi is endowed with an abundance of cultural sites from its long history. Most of the ancient structures were built before the Liao and Song Dynasties. So it is the reason why Shanxi is often called the ‘Chinese Ancient Architecture Museum’. The more obvious of these include: the Buddhist wonder of the Yungang Grottoes in Datong City, the Ancient City of Pingyao which was listed as a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO in 1997, the oldest and tallest ancient wooden pagoda in China, the Wooden Pagoda of Yingxian County and the remote Shuanglin Temple and Jinci Temple, which are well worth the long journeys for the visitors.

Of course, there are a number of natural magnificent and beautiful places that can also be seen in Shanxi. The most famous of them include Wutai Mountain with the longest and most prestigious history in the four most well-known Buddhist holy lands of China, the whistling rage of the Yellow River’s Kettle Spout waterfalls (Hukou Waterfalls) and one of the Five Sacred Mountains in China.

Top Most Poisonous Animals

It is not easy to tell which animal is the most poisonous.But here are the top 10

1. Box Jellyfish

The top prize for “The World Most Venomous Animal,” would go to the Box Jellyfish. It has caused at least 5,567 recorded deaths since 1954. Their venom is among the most deadly in the world. It’s toxins attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells.

2. King Cobra

The King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) is the world’s longest venomous snake – growing up to 5.6 m (18.5 ft) in length.

3. Marbled Cone Snail

This little beautiful looking Marbled Cone snail can be as deadly as any other animal on this list. One drop of its venom is so powerful that it can kill more than 20 humans

4. Blue-Ringed Octopus


//
//
The Blue-Ringed Octopus is very small, only the size of a golf ball, but its venom is so powerful that can kill a human. Actually it carries enough poison to kill 26 adult humans within minutes, and there is no antidote.

5. Death Stalker Scorpion

Contrarily to the popular belief most of the scorpions are relatively harmless to humans as stings produce only local effects (pain, numbness or swelling). However, the Death Starker Scorpion is highly dangerous species because its venom is a powerful cocktail of neurotoxins which causes an intense and unbearable pain, then fever, followed by coma, convulsions, paralysis and death. Fortunately, while a sting from this scorpion is extremely painful, it would be unlikely to kill a healthy, adult human.

6. Stonefish

Maybe Stonefish would never win a beauty contest, but it would definitely win the top prize for being “The World Most Venomous Fish”. Its venom causes such a severe pain that the victims of its sting want the affected limb to be amputated

7. The Brazilian wandering spider

The Brazilian Wandering Spider (Phoneutria) or banana spider appears in the Guinness Book of World Records 2007 for the most venomous spider and is the spider responsible for most human deaths.

8. Inland Taipan

The prize for “The World’s Most Venomous Snake” goes to the Inland Taipan of Australia. Just a single bite from this snake contains enough venom to kill 100 human adults or an army of 250,000 mice. Its venom is at least 200 – 400 times more toxic than a common cobra.

9. Poison Dart Frog

If you ever happen to be running through the rain forests somewhere in Central or South America, do not ever pick up beautiful and colorful frogs – it can be the Poison Dart Frog.

10. Puffer Fish

Puffer Fish are the second most poisonous vertebrate on earth (the first one is golden dart Frog). The meat of some species is a delicacy in both Japan (as fugu) and Korea (as bok-uh) but the problem is that the skin and certain organs of many puffer fish are very poisonous to humans.

New train service for Riyadh City

The Higher Commission for the Development of Riyadh City is preparing to inaugurate the first phase of the construction and operation of light trains to transport passengers between the north and south, and east and west, of Riyadh, according to Al-Riyadh newspaper.

The project is aimed to attract people to use public transport rather than their cars, which will help ease congestion in the city. Statistics show that 92% of daily journeys in the city are made by private cars. The project also promotes private sector participation in financing and administering the Kingdom’s transport system.

The first phase of the project will be executed at the axis of Al-Olaya-Al-Batha axis, and that of Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Road. Priority will be given to Al-Olaya-Al-Batha axis, where light trains will be supported by buses that will collect passengers from surrounding areas.

Al-Olaya-Al-Batha axis will be 25km in length, extending from the northern to the southern Riyadh ring-roads. It was designed to serve highly populated areas, and key sites in the city, such as Riyadh International Exhibition Centre, Oais, Taibah, and Andalusia markets, the Ministry of Municipality and Rural Affairs, the Kingdom’s Tower, Al-Akariya commercial centre, and others.

The Prince Abdullah Road axis will extend 13km from the eastern ring-road to King Khalid road to the west. It will serve all facilities and agencies located on Prince Abdullah road, such as King Saud University, Prince Sultan National University, the Ministry of Municipality and Rural Affairs, the Ministry of Education, and a number of large commercial complexes.

Studies have shown that such a system of light trains represents the optimal technical solution to serve present and future transportation needs in Riyadh. The system will be operated using electricity as its energy source, which will help preserve a clean environment. The length of trains used in the first phase of the project will range from 20 to 43 metres. The trains will transport 2,000 to 20,000 passengers per hour, at a speed of up to 65 km/hr. There will be 23 stations along Al-Olaya-Al-Batha axis, and 13 on Prince Abdullah Road axis.
