Three days before Christmas, I was shopping at Wal-Mart in New Boston. I lost my diamond ring that was given to me by my husband on our anniversary. I called the store when I got home and several days after that, no one had found it and turned it in. Thinking that I would never find my ring I quit calling. About three weeks later, I was in the store and thought that I would check and see if someone had turned my ring in, knowing it wouldn't be there. After several questions about my ring from the ladies at the service desk, one of them opened their hand and there was my ring. They said a wonderful lady had bought a pair of gloves and when she got home my ring was in the gloves. She returned the ring to the service desk, and stated someone was probably looking for this ring, as it was such a nice piece of jewelry.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank that wonderful lady, she never left her name or any way to get in touch with her. I would like to think that someday maybe someone will do something nice for her. May God bless you.
Population exceeds Earth's carrying capacity
Carrying capacity refers to the number of a species sustainably supported by their environment in one place.
A pasture with enough year-around grass for five cows has a carrying capacity of five cows. Putting 10 cows in, exceeds the carrying capacity. All will live short term but not sustainably long term. Cows share until all starve.
Ten wolves with enough rabbits to feed five will compete until five wolves remain.
The carrying capacity of Earth, for humans, may be about two billion without oil. Even with oil, the current 6 1/2 billion people exceeds Earth's carrying capacity. Share or compete?
