You Spin Me Right Round

The earth’s rotation is slowing down and that means we could experience more earthquakes in 2018

Nature can seem quite chaotic at times; it is difficult to monitor, predict and understand the many oddities of the natural world. We are still fumbling around in the dark when it comes to answering many of scientists’ whys. However, we are learning new things everyday about the complex relationships between animals, plants, the atmosphere, space and even the smallest elemental particles which make our planet unique (as far as we know).

Scientists don’t know why cats purr or why we yawn (and why yawning is contagious) and there are plenty of places, animals and plants that human eyes have never seen. As a species, we’ve explored less than 10 per cent of our oceans and the mysteries of space are countless.

Another common phenomenon that we have more questions than answers about is earthquakes. There are thousands of earthquakes every year, although many of them are too small for us to detect without the help of scientific equipment. However, according to leading researchers, in 2018 we could see a spike in the number of major earthquakes around the world because the Earth’s rotation is slowing down.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the February issue of Vegan Life! We have a super issue for you, packed with articles, recipes and interviews. We have spoken to activist Joey Carbstrong about his journey from doing time in a high security prison to animal welfare campaigner. His story is truly inspirational and evidence that it is never too late to move towards a compassionate lifestyle. We also have a wonderful interview with Lucy Holland, AKA Moocylu’s Designs, about her artistic style and some of the problems she has encountered on social media. One of our special features this month focuses on vegan butters and cheeses. Less than five years ago, it was near impossible to find a good cheddar replacement, let alone replacements for haloumi, parmesan, feta and camembert. Now, there are so many vegan cheeses that you are able to make a whole cheeseboard with different flavours, strengths and textures, but without any of the cruelty associated with traditional dairy. We have also put together a roundup of what you can expect from this year’s Vegan Life Live London, which is being held at Alexandra Palace on the 10th and 11th of February. We have shone the spotlight on some of the amazing talks, food, stalls and cookery demonstrations which will be taking place at Vegan Life Live to get you even more excited before the event! Finally, we were lucky enough to speak to an animal rights activist about the rescue of a piglet called Bella from a factory farm in Australia. Bella (who turned out to be male) was in an atrocious state when he was found, but some wonderful people rescued and cared for him and he is now on the road to recovery. With Christmas out of the way and Valentine’s Day on the way, it is the perfect time to stop and consider how we can all be a little more loving, and compassionate to the animals we share this earth with. As ever, please do get in touch and let us know what you are up to. We love to hear from our wonderful readers.
