We often travel to far off locations to enjoy the breath taking scenery and exotic locales. We also often end up going to other nations and appreciating the natural beauty that exists there. Then why are we so incapable of protecting, preserving and restoring the natural beauty of our own motherland? Maybe it's because we don't have any time to devote towards the cause, or maybe because each one of us is simply not bothered about it and we do not give it importance. But the need of the hour is to give the issue importance; how much ever we ignore or delay the cause of junk removal and environment protection, it is not going to be a problem for us in the long run.
We all know and understand that the environment is getting more and more polluted by each passing day, and we must prevent it by practicing adequate measures for junk removal and rubbish removal. However, that is not something that's happening. The reality is far from our thoughts. It's time to realize the need to transform our thoughts into action. Especially in places like Vancouver, where environment protection is such a common phenomenon, it would only be wise enough to take out time and make sure that junk and rubbish is being disposed properly and in the most eco- friendly manner possible.
We often end up disposing rubbish and junk in places where it is not supposed to be disposed. However, it would be really kind on our part if we contribute to junk and rubbish removal in Vancouver. The city has given us so much. Don't you think it's time to give back? Yes! It's indeed time to give back, by making Vancouver the cleanest city on this planet.
We, being the residents of Vancouver, must start a campaign to promote the cause of junk and rubbish removal. It is the least we can do for a city that has given us our life.
This whole earth needs to be free from unwanted waste and junk. Then, we will be able to wake up, to fresh breath too, every morning. And then we can proudly call Vancouver our city. So do not waste any more time in thinking and just take on to the mission of removal of junk and rubbish in Vancouver and make it the most clean and junk-free city in this world. Let's initiate a campaign and take charge of our own city. After all, the city has given us so much to be proud of it; we also, must give our city reasons to feel proud about us. Let's make Vancouver an even better place to live in.
An atheist group sued today over the inclusion of cross-shaped steel beams, dubbed the "World Trade Center Cross," in the exhibit at the National September 11th Memorial and Museum.
Jane Everhart, who is part of the atheist's suit, derided the cross as nothing more than "ugly piece of wreckage" that "does not represent anything ... but horror and death."
Last weekend the 17-foot cross, discovered in the rubble of 9/11, was given a "ceremonial blessing" by the Rev. Brian Jordan, removed from it's temporary post near St. Peter's Church and lowered 70 feet into its permanent home inside the museum.
But a group identified as American Atheists filed a lawsuit today claiming t

Ailing ground zero workers went to court Tuesday to demand that the company overseeing a $1 billion Sept. 11 insurance fund spend the money to pay for their health care.
The workers have already filed a class-action lawsuit claiming the toxic dust from the World Trade Center site gave them serious, sometimes fatal diseases. On Tuesday, they sought compensation from the WTC Captive Insurance Co., the company in charge of money appropriated by Congress to deal with Sept. 11 health-related claims.
"The WTC Captive has consistently refused to pay any of the ground zero workers who have become ill on the work site, including any compensation" for lost salaries, pain and suffering, medical treatment, medical monitoring or burial expenses, said the lawsuit, filed in Manhattan's state Supreme Court.
It was filed by attorneys representing thousands who became ill after working to clean up the site while breathing toxic trade center dust, including more than 100 who have died.
"She hasn't paid a penny to one of my 10,000 people," David Worby, an attorney representing the workers, said of the company's CEO, Christine LaSala. "It was their mandate."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who was named in the suit along with LaSala and board members, said Tuesday that attorneys are wrong about the company's structure.
"They just don't know the facts. The truth of the matter is, Congress didn't set up a victims' compensation fund," the mayor said. "We'd like them to do that, we've asked for that, they set up a captive insurance company. And the insurance company can only pay out monies if somebody sues us in court and wins a judgment against us."
Congress directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency to set up the fund, appropriating up to $1 billion "to establish a captive insurance company or other appropriate insurance mechanism for claims arising from debris removal, which may include claims made by city employees," according to the 2003 resolution.
The lawsuit, relying on testimony from federal officials over the years about the fund's purpose, said officials meant for the money to be used to compensate ailing workers. Federal and state governments never said "that a captive insurance company be established solely to defend the city of New York and its contractors from all rescue, recovery and debris removal related claims, at all costs," the lawsuit said.
In this case, the term "captive" refers to an entity created specifically to cover 9/11-related claims for the New York City government.
Since it began operating in 2004, the company has spent more than $73 million of the insurance money in legal fees and other expenses, the lawsuit says.
Worby and other attorneys plan to go to Washington later this week to lobby congressional leaders to urge the company to make the $1 billion available immediately for sick workers.
The largest study conducted of about 20,000 ground zero workers reported last year that 70 percent of patients suffer respiratory disease years after the cleanup. The city earlier this year added to its Sept. 11 death toll a woman who died in 2002 of lung disease, five months after being caught in the dust cloud of the collapsing twin towers.
Bloomberg and other city officials have estimated the cost of caring for the workers who are sick or who could become sick at $393 million a year and urged the federal government to pay for their treatment and monitoring.
