Cedric's Mission

Everyday I like to go for a surf before work at my local surf spot, Bondi Beach in Sydney. The area is always busy with people exercising, walking, surfing, and swimming. The other day as I was stretching, I noticed an old chap walking along, plastic bag in hand, slowly walking towards me as he stopped every few metres to...

Boomcast's Ripples

A year ago it dawned on me that social media platforms had taken a bad turn. Everywhere I looked, it was all just pictures of people’s lunch, meaningless selfies, and depressing news. I realized that I was wasting so much time scrolling down countless feeds viewing content that served no purpose. It was unbearable! It wasn’t until I came across...

Wishing Good Fortune

Before Christmas, my son and I played Santa's elves and it was so fun! We bought a bunch of lottery tickets and placed each one in a Christmas card with a note that said, "Sending love and wishing you good fortune this Christmas! From: Your Neighbor." Then at midnight we dressed more like ninjas, rather than elves, and left the...

We Stopped Doing Anything

Earth gives us life. The human beings that appreciate it, care for it and love it each and every day deserve our planet's life and what it provides us with to live. The human beings that don't appreciate the life, let the Co2 burn holes in the ocean and kill millions of animals, skin creatures that live here with us,...

Life... It's Either Here Or Not

It proves that even though we need a lot more people to help out and join this battle, we have a strong force already and if we add more? A battle force so strong that nothing, NOTHING can defeat it. An unbreakable brick wall, so true. I am only 11 and a half years old, but I am already so...

OCEANS=FAMILY

I find it very sad, and frustrating, that humans are ridding themselves of humanity! I mean.... think of it this way, Earth is our home, our PLANET, it's all we have, whether it was made by God or not. People have different beliefs, everyone does and I respect that, I do. People believe Earth was created different ways and...

Co2 Emissions Are Killing Life As We Know It And We Need To Stop That

Co2 is a deadly toxin and it makes Earth a very unhealthy and dirty place. My cousin said he went to Hong Kong and when he got off the plane, he couldn't see his hands in front of his face!

Earth Needs Our Help, If Not, Life On Earth? Gone.

I have mentioned before that Earth is deteriorating rapidly and needs our help, but it seems like I just can't say it enough! People are actually signing up to MOVE to MARS!

The SMALLEST Of Things Are The Foundation For The LARGEST

The microscopic plankton is providing us with more than half of all our oxygen. The coral reefs are giving homes to millions of sea creatures, some invisible to the naked eye. Or maybe, the invisible is only visible to whom who care? Think about that for a second. I have said before that marine creatures and the ocean itself is...
