NGA asks.. Why do we lie? Reveals of threat to Gal?pagos and Tanzania25 May 2017
In its June 2017, National Geographic AlArabiya magazine will present a report on lying and its types, asking the question that has been found tricky by scientists: Why do we lie? In addition, the magazine will sound the alarm in Galapagos and show how albinos suffer in Tanzania. The readers will also find information about a Canadian dinosaur fossil and lava carved caves in Hawaii.
Why do we lie?
The new issue opens with a topic on lying. Scientists argue that lying is essential part of human nature. We resort to lying when we think that telling the truth is not useful. Today, in the age of the Internet, lies are becoming more and more sophisticated. No white lies anymore there is a rainbow of lies. Now, science is no longer concerned with discovering lies using the state of the art technologies. Rather, it has become more concerned with exploring the deep realms of the human soul to find the answer to such a complex question: Why do we lie?
Galapagos: A Survival Question
The National Geographic AlArabiya magazine sounds the alarm on a threat onto the Galapagos Island that has been dazzling the people around the world with awesome plants and wild pure nature. Thanks to its remote location amid the waters of the Pacific Ocean, Galapagos has been away from the human greed. However, the marvelous ecosystem in this island is at risk due to the climate change that is tightening the screws on our planet from all sides. Can scientists manage to protect the island that was inspiring for Charles Darwin and get it back on track?
Albinism as Materialization of Human Suffering
This month the magazine will highlight the disastrous situation of Albinos in Tanzania as they face health problems including the torrents of abuse hurled at them and the cutting of their limbs for sorcery purposes. Their only fault is this genetic disorder they have as a result of lack of melanin; a pigment that defines the color of skin, hair and eyes. Recently, the attacks on people with albinism in Tanzania have been on the rise and humanitarian organizations have started to move to end the injustice they suffer.
Canadian Dinosaur Fossil
The readers will be also introduced to a Canadian mine throwing out a dinosaur fossil which is the best preserved fossil discovered according to scientists. After more than 110 million years in its undersea burial, this plant eater called ‘nodosaur’ comes to surface in 2011. The ‘nodosaur’ measures 5.5 in height and about 1300 kilograms in weight. The ‘nodosaur’ will be subject to more studies and research in an attempt to reveal more secrets of this region in the ancient times.
This report shows how Hawaii volcanoes have been pouring lava at land and sea carving underground caves. In certain sections the length of these caves can exceed 64 kilometers. Explorers want to find out the secrets of these caves and draw accurate maps for them. However, some challenges need to be overcome including the fact that the residents of this area want to keep these caves sacred and the geological landscape is changing always.
