The olive tree of Vouves, on Crete. This tree, which has a trunk 15 feet in diameter, is at least 2,000 years old, and likely 2,900 years old, based on the graveyard found nearby. This tree likely lived through the writing of the Iliad, the golden age of Athens, the rise of the Roman Empire, and the birth of Christ – and then lived for 2,000 years after that. It still produces olives, as well! 😯😯🙏🙏🤗🤗😋😋

"School failed me, and I failed the school. It bored me. The teachers behaved like Feldwebel (sergeants). I wanted to learn what I wanted to know, but they wanted me to learn for the exam. What I hated most was the competitive system there, and especially sports. Because of this, I wasn't worth anything, and several times they suggested I leave. This was a Catholic School in Munich. I felt that my thirst for knowledge was being strangled by my teachers; grades were their only measurement. How can a teacher understand youth with such a system? From the age of twelve, I began to suspect authority and distrust teachers."

Meetings with remarkable men

It was said that #CharlieChaplin was the only person in Hollywood #AlbertEinstein wanted to meet.

In 1931, he got his chance to talk to the actor at the premiere of the film 'City Lights'.

Einstein: "What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don’t say a word, yet the world understands you!"

Chaplin: "True. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don’t understand a word of what you say."

A queen leaves the rainforest. Lumberjacks and ranchers continue to penetrate the rainforest and devastate more areas than ever. In Brazil, clearing is not only used for pastures, but also for the cultivation of soy.

Not only in South America, but also in Asia and Africa, the tropical forests are coming under increasing pressure. 3.8 million hectares of primeval forest are lost in one year. That's the size of a soccer field - every six seconds.

But even corporations that are already considered polluters, such as General Mills, IKEA, Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg, L'Oréal, Mars, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble and Unilever, destroyed 50 million hectares of forest in just one decade, according to an analysis . That corresponds to the size of Spain. In short, much of the deforestation has occurred in recent years. Since the beginning of the industrial age, forests have declined by 32%.

Stopping deforestation and restoring forests is the cheapest and fastest way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ensure rapid carbon uptake, they say.

And yet no stop of deforestation can be seen on our planet earth.
