No one has been able to capture this 3,200-year-old tree in one image before – until now

Kenya Installs The First Solar Power Plant That Transforms Ocean Water Into Drinking Water

While most of us, who also have the privilege of using the Internet on a daily basis and therefore are able to read this, don’t have any problems getting fresh drinking water, that’s not the case for everyone.
