Mimicking a volcano to cool the planet? Will it work? The plan is to have a hose 12.4 miles long, tethered to a ship attached to a 650 foot balloon pumping out hundreds of tons of chemicle particles into the stratosphere.
Volcanic ash is able to reflect sunlight, and scientists want to mimic that to combat the increase of rising global temperatures. The researchers are testing out their theory in October with a smaller scale device that will pump out water at a lower altitude.
Not everyone thinks this is a good idea. According to some environmentalists:
"This is a huge waste of time and money and shows the UK government's disregard for UN processes. It is the first step in readying the hardware to inject particles into the stratosphere. It has no other purpose and it should not be allowed to go ahead," Pat Mooney, chair of ETC Group in Canada, told The Guardian.
Also, there is no say on what this would do to the increased carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere.
Sir Martin Rees, the former president of Royal Society (which is funding the work with a $2.6 million grant), strongly supports the balloon approach as a plan B to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Keeping a constant eye on children’s cell phone activity has become imperative in today’s difficult and insecure times. Parents have no other choice but to keep tabs on their cell phones and internet activity. They spy on their children’s online activity because they want to keep them protected from the threats of the digital world. Therefore, using a text message spy app is highly recommended to them.

I think it’s safe to say, every now and then all of us use the services of retail companies via web stores, yeah? But what about a mobile field where we spend like... half of our day sometimes? The number of iPhone and smartphone user is reaching an enormous point, that is just going to increase with each year. Read more
