A way of life

A way of life commonly reflects a singular's disposition, qualities or world perspective. Along these lines, a way of life is a method for fashioning a feeling of self and to make social images that reverberate with individual character. Not all parts of a way of life are willful. Encompassing social and specialized frameworks can compel the way of life decisions accessible to the individual and the images she/he finds himself able to extend to others and the self. The lines between individual character and the ordinary doings that flag a specific way of life get to be smudged in present day society. Case in point, "green way of life" means holding convictions and taking part in exercises that devour less assets and create less hurtful waste, and inferring a feeling of self from holding these convictions and participating in these exercises. A few analysts contend that, in innovation, the foundation of way of life development is utilization conduct, which offers the likelihood to make and further individualize the self with diverse items or administrations that flag distinctive lifestyles. Way of life may incorporate perspectives on legislative issues, religion, well being, closeness, and that's just the beginning. These perspectives assume a part in molding somebody's way of life. In the magazine and television industries, "way of life" is utilized to depict a class of distributions or projects.

Life (cf. biota) is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have signaling and self-sustaining processes (i.e., living organisms) from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased (death), or else because they lack such functions and are classified as inanimate. Biology is the science concerned with the study of life.

Living organisms undergo metabolism, maintain homeostasis, possess a capacity to grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce and, through natural selection, adapt to their environment in successive generations. More complex living organisms can communicate through various means. A diverse array of living organisms (life forms) can be found in the biosphere on Earth, and the properties common to these organisms—plants, animals, fungi, protists, archaea, and bacteria—are a carbon- and water-based cellular form with complex organization and heritable genetic information.

In philosophy and religion, the conception of life and its nature varies. Both offer interpretations as to how life relates to existence and consciousness, and both touch on many related issues, including life stance, purpose, conception of a god or gods, a soul or an afterlife.

Black Vulture

The Black Vulture (Coragyps atratus) also known as the American Black Vulture, is a bird in the New World vulture family whose range extends from the southeastern United States to Central Chile and Uruguay in South America. Although a common and widespread species, it has a somewhat more restricted distribution than its compatriot, the Turkey Vulture, which breeds well into Canada and south to Tierra del Fuego.

Despite the similar name and appearance, this species is unrelated to the Eurasian Black Vulture. The latter species is an Old World vulture in the family Accipitridae (which includes eagles, hawks, kites and harriers), whereas the American species is a New World vulture. It is the only extant member of the genus Coragyps, which is in the family Cathartidae. It inhabits relatively open areas which provide scattered forests or shrublands. With a wingspan of 1.5 m (5 ft) the Black Vulture is a large bird though relatively small for a vulture. It has black plumage, a featherless, grayish-black head and neck, and a short, hooked beak.

The Black Vulture is a scavenger and feeds on carrion, but will also eat eggs or kill newborn animals. In areas populated by humans, it also feeds at garbage dumps. It finds its meals either by using its keen eyesight or by following other (New World) vultures, which possess a keen sense of smell. Lacking a syrinx—the vocal organ of birds—its only vocalizations are grunts or low hisses. It lays its eggs in caves or hollow trees or on the bare ground, and generally raises two chicks each year, which it feeds by regurgitation. In the United States, the vulture receives legal protection under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. This vulture also appeared in Mayan codices.
