The scarcity of water on our island has been a long term problem. The amount of groundwater which is used both for domestic and agricultural use is not adequate for our ever-growing population and has to be supplemented by water from Reverse Osmosis Plants. One of the main problems facing groundwater resources is over-extraction from boreholes. The problem does not lie with registered boreholes that have the extraction of water controlled by meters – but with numerous illegally dug ones that extract water as if there is no tomorrow. This unsustainable action will lead to salination of water that is a death warrant for the soil and the crops that grow there. We have to act TODAY, tomorrow might be too late.

“If you don’t like pictures of animal cruelty being posted on social media, you need to help stop the cruelty, not the pictures. You should be bothered that it’s happening, not that you saw it” (Marie Sarantakis). These strong words surely hit you like a cold shower. However they are the real, harsh truth. Animal abuse is becoming a serious problem in society today. We constantly find articles and pictures on social media which bother us for many reasons. Therefore, I am writing this article to raise awareness about this issue.
