Did you know that the addition of nutrients to an ecosystem can be   quite deadly?

An excess of  nutrients  in fertlizer rerun off from farms can cause  a  signifcant growth of algae  causing an algal bloom.Eventually these algae will die and decomposing bacteria, will, in turn   break down the algae .Unfortunately,  the decomposing bacteria requires  a lot of oxygen to do this.Since they are depleting the levels of oxygen , fish  and other aquatic `creatures  begin to die .Not only can severe ecological damage occur, but also   the decline in fisheries can cause   a negative effect on the economy.

See you next month for more Science.

 A warm Eid Mubarak  is extended to Muslim readers.Eid  is being celebrated  across North America today.We hope all of you have an Eid filled with faith, health , family and  joy.

Why We Celebrate Eid-Remembering The True Meaning

Muslims will be celerating Eid in  honour of Prophet  Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his child, Ishamael .His willingness was brought from a dream he had from Allah who ordered im to sacrifice Ismahel in Allah’s name.ProphetIbrahim knew that this was a real order  and followed the command.Just when Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son who was more than willing to partake in the process, Allah removed  Ismail and replaced it with a sheep.This is why Muslims in Hajj sacrifice a sheep in the name of God every year.We do it  to symbolize our love for God .

 Celebrations

                             Eid is celebrated  with many festive activities.Both me and women wear their  best clothes   as they attend morning Eid prayers.Gatherings amongst friends and family occur  as  celerators enjoy meals together.Gifts are also exchanged between children and teenagers.Greetings also occur inthe form of Eid  Mubarak!

As we do every Eid, our site  is inviting Muslim readers to  extend Eid wishes to each other in the comments section of this post.This is apart of our ongoing Muslim unity efforts.We hope that YOU will  participate to help make   the effort a success.

Non Muslims are also invited to partake in the  discussion to learn more about this Islamic  festival.

Eid Mubarak and thank you for celebrating Eid with us!
