Unique Daily Info : Fun Facts about Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls, city in the Regional Municipality of Niagara, southeastern Ontario, Canada, a port on the Niagara River opposite Niagara Falls, New York. The city overlooks the Horseshoe, or Canadian, Falls cataract of Niagara Falls; the crescent-shaped cataract is 54 M (177 ft) high and carries nine times more water than its United States counterpart. Niagara Falls is an enormously popular tourist destination, and it also serves as a major source of electricity for Ontario.

Here let’s check it out fun facts about Niagara Falls :

  • The Falls at Niagara are about 12,000 years old.
  • Niagara Falls is made up of 3 waterfalls : the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. The 3 waterfalls combine to produce the highest flow rate of any waterfall on earth.
  • Fish travel down the Falls—and about 90% of them survive thanks to the foamy cushion on the way down.
  • The Niagara River flows at approximately 35 miles/hour (56.3 kilometers/hour).
  • 681,750 gallons of water flows over the Horseshoe Falls every second.
  • The first person to ever go over the Falls was a courageous 63-year-old teacher Annie Edson Taylor. She traveled down the Falls in a barrel.
  • About 20% of the fresh water in the United States passes over Niagara Falls.
  • The word Niagara comes from the word "onguiaahra" which means "a thundering noise".
  • About 28,000,000 (that’s 28 million!) liters of water travel down Niagara Falls every second.
  • Niagara Falls is not the highest waterfall in the world. There are actually about 500 waterfalls that are taller than Niagara. It’s actually the combination of height and large volume of water that makes Niagara Falls a great tourist destination.
  • Although Niagara Falls isn’t the tallest waterfall in the world, it may be the fastest moving waterfall on the planet.
  • Niagara Falls is the result of glaciers. (Niagara Falls was created by glacier activity around 10,000 years ago).

  • About 20% of the drinking water in the United States goes through and over Niagara Falls. Yup, you have most likely drank water that came from the Falls.
  • Falls were formed when melting glaciers formed massive fresh-water lakes (the Great Lakes) one of which (Lake Erie) ran downhill toward another (Lake Ontario). The rushing waters carved out a river in their descent and at one point passed over a steep cliff like formation (the Niagara escarpment). From the original falls going over the Niagara Escarpment, the water began to wear its way back up the river.

Tips Tetap Segar dan Fresh Saat Berpuasa

Selama satu bulan penuh umat Islam menjalankan ibadah puasa. Tahukah Anda, selama berpuasa tubuh tidak mendapatkan asupan makanan maupun cairan sekitar 14 jam. Oleh karena itu, penting sekali untuk memerhatikan pola makan dan pola tidur agar Anda bisa menjalani puasa dengan baik. Berikut ini silahkan Anda simak beberapa tips sehat selama berpuasa versi Unique Daily Tips :

1. Agar bertahan lama, dianjurkan untuk sahur mendekati waktu imsyak.
2. Peran sahur saat berpuasa sangatlah penting. Jangan lupa selalu mengkonsumsi makanan bergizi baik pada saat sahur. Walau menu sederhana, yang penting mengandung lima unsur gizi lengkap seperti protein, lemak, karbohidrat, vitamin dan mineral. Mengkonsumsi buah juga sangat baik untuk menjaga stamina Anda selama puasa.
3. Perbanyak mengkonsumsi sayuran dan makanan-makanan kaya karbohidrat seprti kacang-kacangan yang bisa mengikat air yang dibutuhkan tubuh selama berpuasa.
4. Setelah makan sahur jangan langsung tidur. Tubuh memerlukan waktu untuk mencerna makanan.
5. Untuk mencegah tubuh dari dehidrasi dengan minum air putih pada malam hari. Hal ini penting dilakukan, karena pada siang hari aktivitas kita cenderung banyak mengeluarkan keringat baik di luar ruangan atau ruang ber-AC.
6. Kurangi mengkonsumsi makanan berminyak. Makanan ini akan membuat sel darah merah menggumpal sehingga menyebabkan aliran oksigen menjadi berkurang hingga 20 persen. Akibatnya Anda akan mengantuk pada siang hari.
7. Bagi penderita sakit lambung sebaiknya menghindari makanan seperti ketan, mie, daging berlemak, ikan dan daging yang diawetkan, sayuran mentah, sayuran berserat, minuman yang mengandung soda, dan bumbu yang tajam (cuka, cabai, asam). Jenis makanan tersebut bisa menimbulkan gas yang berpengaruh meningkatkan produksi asam lambung.
8. Pada saat makan malam, sebaiknya tidak makan terlalu banyak untuk mencegah obesitas. Selain itu, hindari meminum kopi dan minuman yang mengandung soda karena bisa buat Anda sulit. Sebagai alternatif ganti kedua minuman tersebut dengan air mineral dan jus buah.
9. Ketika udara semakin panas dan terik, usahakan untuk beraktivitas di dalam ruangan yang dingin atau tempat teduh. Batasi pula aktivitas fisik agar Anda tidak mudah lelah.
10. Berbuka puasa dengan makan secukupnya. Langsung memakan banyak makanan hanya akan membuat perut terasa sesak. Para pakar kesehatan menganjurkan untuk makan secara bertahap, mulai dari air putih beberapa teguk, sedikit makanan manis, dan selang minimal setengah atau satu jam baru makan besar.
11. Kurangi yang manis-manis. Makanan manis akan membuat tubuh melepaskan insulin dengan cepat sehingga memicu rasa cepat lapar.
12. Selain memerhatikan asupan makanan, pengaturan pola tidur juga merupakan hal yang penting. Mengantuk selama puasa bukanlah disebabkan karena tak makan dan minum seharian, melainkan karena tak memiliki waktu tidur yang cukup. Jika memungkinkan untuk tidur siang yang singkat tapi berkualitas akan membantu memulihkan energi Anda.
13. Mengkonsumsi Vitamin jika dianggap perlu ( vitamin yang penting dikonsumsi setiap hari adalah vitamin A, B, dan C).
14. Jangan lupa niatkan ikhlas karena Allah, karena keikhlasan karena Allah akan memberikan semangat yang sangat berlebih dalam seluruh aktivitas Anda. Untuk niat puasa silahkan Anda baca Niat Puasa dan Do'a Saat Berbuka Puasa.
Demikianlah tips yang dapat Anda lakukan agar tetap segar dan fresh saat menjalankan ibadah puasa. Semoga bermanfaat.

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is a period of fasting for muslims all around the world. Time for reflection, devotion, generosity and sacrifice observed. Ramadan retains its intense spiritual meaning. The word "Ramadan" comes from the Arabic root word for "parched thirst" and "sun-baked ground." It is expressive of the hunger and thirst felt by those who spend the month in fasting. Ramadan is a very special time for Muslims, but the feelings and lessons we experience should stay with us throughout the year. In the Qur'an, Muslims are commanded to fast so that they may "learn self-restraint" (Qur'an 2:183). This restraint and devotion is especially felt during Ramadan, but we all must strive to make the feelings and attitudes stay with us during our "normal" lives. That is the true goal and test of Ramadan.

It's believed that in this month that the Qu'ran was revealed to the prophet Mohammad. The fast is done during daylight hours for 30 days. Of course, those who are ill or small children do not fast. Ramadan is basically the spiritual cleansing of the soul through self restraint. Through fasting, a Muslim experiences hunger and thirst, and sympathizes with those in the world who have little to eat everyday. Muslims fill day and night with prayer, reading Qur'an just to get closer to Allah and recognize that everything we have in this life is a blessing from Allah.
May Allah accept our fasting, forgive our sins and guide us all to the Straight Path in everyday of our life. May Allah bless us all during Ramadan and throughout the year, with forgiveness, mercy, and peace.
