2021 Bucket List of Safety



The difficult times we experienced in the year 2020 should motivate us into thinking that we also need to create a “Safety Bucket List” for the year 2021. This year has given us a series of difficult events that shook and changed the course of our lives. The Australian Bushfire, the devastating storms and floods in Asian countries, the volcanic eruption in the Philippines, the earthquakes from different parts of the world, the Locust Swarms in some parts of Asia and Africa, the Cyclone Amphan in India & Bangladesh, and of course, the COVID-19 are some of the major catastrophic events that unfolded in the past year. Though we have overcome this year despite the difficulty, it is still important that we prepare ourselves for the year 2021.

The year 2021 is just around the corner. At the end of every year, it is a common practice by most to create a bucket list for the following year. A bucket list is a list of items that someone would like to do for the next year or the succeeding years. Some of the most common items on bucket lists are: 1) experience the Northern Lights, 2) go on a week-long cruise, 3) visit the eight wonders of the world, 4) establish a healthy work-life balance, and 5) go vegan.

Here’s Why River Overflow can Lead to Flood Damage



Flood can be very terrifying if you live near rivers. Though called in many literature as a source of life, rivers can actually take lives when they overflow. Rivers carry many risks especially when there is heavy rainfall and overtopping happens. When there is too much water because of very high rainfall volume, water can burst in the banks, causing dry areas to be flooded.
