Curried Moroccan Vegetables Recipe
2 small eggplants
2 tablespoons ghee or butter
½ medium onion, finely chopped
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground coriander
¼ teaspoon hot chilli powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 large chopped tomatoes
½ red pepper, deseeded and diced
1 medium zucchini thickly diced
14 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 cups vegetable stock
2 tablespoons roughly chopped almonds

For the couscous
½ vegetable stock cube
1 teaspoon curry powder
10 ounce package of whole grain couscous
½ teaspoon grated lemon zest

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F. Cut the eggplants in half from top to bottom and score in a crisscross pattern through the flesh. Place on a small baking tray brush with ghee. Season with a little black pepper and bake for 30-40 minutes or until very tender and lightly browned.

Add ghee to a large pot and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for five minutes, stirring regularly until softened and lightly browned. Add the cumin, curry, chilli and cinnamon, stirring constantly. Pour the tomatoes into the pan. Add the pepper, zucchini, chickpeas, and stock. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are tender and the sauce is thick.

Traditional couscous requires considerable preparation time and is usually steamed and fluffed to separate the couscous granules.
Couscous
For the couscous, dissolve the stock cube in 1/2 cup boiled water in a medium bowl. Stir in the couscous, cover and rest for three minutes. Add the lemon zest, toss well together, using a fork to break up the clumps of couscous.


Divide the eggplants evenly. Stir the lemon juice into the chickpeas and season to taste. Spoon the spiced chickpeas over the eggplants. Add the couscous and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Nature Holds Many Secrets | Hurricanes, Angry African Ancestors

Eastern coasts of Caribbean, United States, and South America, are in danger of being blasted by hurricanes wind and rain during hurricane season from June through November. But, why?  

The scientific reason why is because of Africa’s Sahara desert dust storms and the transition of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa. The waters in the North Atlantic Ocean are typically at their warmest while the Sahara is at its hottest from July through October, so the chances of a hurricane are highest during these months.
Hurricanes are gigantic weather systems using convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create dangerous storms. They are rotating heat engines powered by the warmth of tropical waters having three main parts, the eye, the eyewall, and rainbands. 

Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest. Hurricane Alley is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocea…

Charging Cell Phones in Rural Africa

The simple task of charging a cell phone is no simple matter in rural African villages far from an electric grid.
With the advent of tiny rooftop solar panels electricity could be accessible to millions.
African governments are struggling to meet to electric needs of the poorest of the poor living in rural areas. 

Living off-grid may be a lifestyle choice to some and a fact of everyday living to the poorest of the poor. However, tiny rooftop solar panels and high-efficiency LED lights across the African continent could provide enough electricity to charge cell phones. 

Cell phones are vital for people in rural areas with no access to banks in order to send and receive money, access medical care and stay in contact with family and friends.
What does Off-Grid Mean? Off the grid (off-grid) means creating your own self-sufficient environment and being able to operate completely independently of all trad…

Survival of the Fattest Meaning
The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschi√łt and Lars Calmar was created in 2002. The fat woman is holding a pair of scales as a symbol of justice however; she is closing her eyes so the justice. Galschiot symbolized the woman as being blind, refusing to see the obvious injustice.
For the rich people of the world the main issue in life is that of overeating while people in the third world are dying every day from hunger. 
The misery of imbalanced wealth distribution is creating floods of refugees. However the rich only want to preserve their privileges and take measures so harsh against the poor, they betray their morals …
