(3BL Media/Justmeans) - What’s been happening in Syria has been high-level news for some time. It’s estimated that almost three million people have fled across Syria's borders to escape the gory civil war that has engulfed the nation. The daily flow of men, women and children has become one of the largest forced migrations since World War II. For the first time since then, more than 50 million people worldwide are now living in refugee camps in countries outside their own or are on the run due to conflict.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - This August we have all been rocked by the sudden death of the much loved actor Robin Williams, but more so perhaps by the circumstances of his very sad demise: suicide, a profound act that touches many. Sadly, we never really understand why those who decide to kill themselves do so. It could have been an action because they may had been experiencing an extreme distress, or had severe depression. Either way it is rarely the whole explanation. In a new supplement to the September issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, experts...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Ants are changing the environment and could be one of the Earth's most powerful biological climate brokers. The average ant lives and dies in less than a year, but a long-term experiment tracking the insects' effects on soil suggests they cooled the earth’s climate as their numbers increased.  A lead study by Professor Ronald Dorn, a geologist at Arizona State University in Tempe which was published in the journal Geology has discovered that certain...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Women have proven to be highly effective agents of change in working towards a healthy environment. Many organisations with women at the helm have contributed to setting a sustainable agenda through their advocacy and lobbying, creating solutions to unsustainable development, and making sure that other women’s voices are heard and their perspectives taken into account. Yet, while women make up a little over half of the world’s population, their contribution to measured economic activity, growth and well-being is far below its potential.

In both urban and rural areas, environmental degradation results in...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Kibera is Kenya’s biggest slum town, where the houses are made of mud with leaking roofs made of old iron sheets. The whole area here has no drainage system; a result, the sewage spreads all over. The town smells, and the children and grown-ups inhale the bad stench. There is no provision for water. People buy water from water vendors in jars, and due to the poor sanitation, many people get sick with diseases like cholera, malaria, typhoid, TB. The local women here spend on average, three hours three times a week on a strenuous laundry process, which has devastating health...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Millions of Lego pieces from a container that fell into the sea off Cornwall in 1997 are washing up on Cornish beaches in the U.K. Along the beach in Perranporth, Cornwall you can spot a white daisy, which will be one of 353,264 plastic daisies that went overboard when the container ship Tokio Express was hit by a large wave. The captain described it as a "once in a 100-year phenomenon." As a result, 62 containers were lost about 20 miles off Land's End. One of them was filled with nearly 4.8...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Helen lives in Kenya with her husband and five children, and everyday living is not easy. Helen has to collect water from the river for drinking, cooking and washing. Yet, before they could use this water, Helen tries to make it safe by boiling it, using costly firewood. In spite of the boiling, the water is still not safe, as Helen’s family suffers from upset stomachs and other ill health.

In rural Kenya, waterborne illness is a leading cause of death for young children and untreated water is dangerous to people of all ages. Many Kenyans have to make a daily choice: use...
