Dough balls filled with Peanut butter and choco chip (Whole wheat)

Chitra's Healthy Kitchen

Dough balls filled with choco chips


I love to make dough balls for snacks as they are easy to make and can be customised. I used whole wheat flour for a healthy version and just used very little olive oil, however plain flour can also be used for more softer version. I was making this for my little princess so tried to fill in her favourite peanut butter and choco chip, it can be customised with your favourite fillings.

This is a great party food or just kids after school snack.

Yields: 10-12 dough balls
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes

Goats better than herbicides, new study

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video is called common reed (Phragmites australis).

From Duke University in the USA:

Goats better than chemicals for curbing invasive marsh grass

18 hours ago

Herbivores, not herbicides, may be the most effective way to combat the spread of one of the most invasive plants now threatening East Coast salt marshes, a new Duke University-led study finds.

Phragmites australis, or the common reed, is a rapid colonizer that has overrun many coastal wetlands from New England to the Southeast. A non-native perennial, it can form dense stands of grass up to 10 feet high that block valuable shoreline views of the water, kill off native grasses, and alter marsh function.

Land managers traditionally have used chemical herbicides to slow phragmites’ spread but with only limited and temporary success.

Now, field experiments by researchers at Duke and six other U.S. and European universities have identified a more sustainable…

Alexandra´s Animal Awareness Blog

A fun weekend lies ahead for many families: fall fairs are on in abundance, parents will take their children to the rides, let them have cotton candy, stroll around over the fair grounds, and … see animals being abused? Yes, there are still people who have not heard about the forms of torture used to make animals perform unwillingly in front of humans.

“Nosey the elephant is scheduled to be in Indiana this week, where she will be forced to perform with the Great American Family Circus and give rides at the Kewanna Fall Festival from September 26 through 28, despite the fact that recent video footage shows that she is in pain. Nosey needs you to speak up for her! Please urge festival organizers to cancel Nosey’s appearances immediately and to pledge never to host elephant acts again.”

Gorilla film wins award

“Hope”, a film by Craghoppers featuring Sir David Attenborough

8 April 2014

Hope is a powerful film, which revisits the plight of the critically endangered mountain gorillas in Rwanda and the team of people who are responsible for their survival.

Produced by Craghoppers and voiced by Sir David Attenborough, Hope was filmed in the Volcanoes National Park 47 years after Dian Fossey began her life’s work in mountain gorilla conservation. Only ruins of Fossey’s original Karisoke Research Centre remain — but we meet the research team in their new home, where 120 people continue Dian’s work.

Never before seen footage goes behind the scenes of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International as they intensely monitor the gorillas, with the help of a dedicated team of trackers and anti poaching patrols — whose job it is to follow the great apes every day, 365 days per…

Always New York: This License Plate Was Just Ordered by a Muslim…It’s Revolting PICTURE

The First Amendment is freedom of speech…. and the terrorist use it to inform us how much they hate us!!!

a12iggymom's Blog

Given that Hamas (spelled with one M) has been designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department for decades, it’s hard to see how a license plate honoring the group could be interpreted as anything but support for radical Islamic terrorism.

‘Fracking’ wastewater that is treated for drinking produces potentially harmful compounds

The resulting waste water is highly radioactive and contains high levels of heavy metals and salts called halides (bromide, chloride and iodide)

Concerns that fluids from hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” are contaminating drinking water abound. Now, scientists are bringing to light another angle that adds to the controversy. A new study, appearing in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology, has found that discharge of fracking wastewaters to rivers, even after passage through wastewater treatment plants, could be putting the drinking water supplies of downstream cities at risk.

William A. Mitch, Avner Vengosh and colleagues point out that the disposal of fracking wastewater poses a major challenge for the companies that use the technique, which involves injecting millions of gallons of fluids into shale rock formations to release oil and gas. The resulting wastewater is highly radioactive and contains high levels of heavy metals and salts called halides (bromide, chloride…

September 26th, 2014. A LARGE pilot whale was seen still swimming in Shetland’s Weisdale Voe on Friday evening more than 24 hours after it was first sighted.

The 20 foot long whale was first seen on Thursday around lunchtime swimming in shallow water in a state of distress.

Local people and wildlife volunteers have been keeping a close eye on the creature, which has already beached several times only to free itself and return to deeper water.
