Brazil: Babaçu Nut Breakers in the Bico do Papagaio

violence of its conflicts around its land in the 1970s and 80s as well as for being
the largest scene of land plundering in the world. While theu husbands were
engaged in the fight and occupying the land, the women supported their families
by practicing a primitive type of activity that still exists today, that is breaking
babaçu nuts. These women are known by the name of babaçu nut breakers in
the Bico do Papagaio. Thgy lead an exhausting daily life as they are confronted
by all sorts of difficulties in the quest to gather just enough money to buy one

Small Animals, says that when a coughing cat is brought to the clinic, she must first
establish if the cause is an infection, asthma, or something more sinister, like a
To do this, Read usually performs an x-ray, takes a lung fluid sample, and
conducts a bronchcoscopy — an examination that uses a flexible microscope
inserted into the cat’s airway.
Most of the time, asthma is a mild disease, Reed says. But in some cases
cat's lungs collapse or their ribs fracture due to difficulty in breathing.
“I think if we can identify asthmatic cats quite early and get treatments on board to
suppress their cough, then hopefully we can avoid them coming to such extremes,”
