SOURCE: knock and clunking sound mostly when i turn not

This is an easy one! These vans had a lot of problems with intermediate sway bar bushings. They are fairly cheap but a bit of a pain to change if you don't have a hoist as they are way under the van behind part of the front cross member. I would phone around and get a couple of quote from local shops, it should cost about $150. parts and labor. It is possible that the sway bar end links are worn as well, but 9 times out of 10 the bushings are all you'll need.
Here's a link to the same job:

How to get rid of lice on small birds


No idea of your country but a 20Second google search revealed this;
To remove lice, it is recommended to use a mild pet insecticide, such as "Nuvan." After spraying the plumage, wait for 2 - 3 minutes and then gently ruffle the feathers over a white tray or plastic sheet to collect the lice which fall from the feathers.
I found that one great way to remove lice and mites from your birds is to sprinkle Sevin Garden dust under their wings and tail, and on the back. Check the birds the next day and if there are still lice present, repeat the process, as needed. I found Sevin dust [active ingredient: Carbaryl (1-napthyl N-methylcarbamate)] equally effective in getting rid of red mites.
Avian Insect Liquidator is another way to get rid of mites, lice and other insects in the birds' environment. This all-purpose insecticide from Vetafarm contains a water-based insecticide that is harmless to birds but effective against insects.
Prevention:
Sanitize and treat the birds' environment (cages, perches, aviaries, nesting areas, etc.). Secondly, allow your birds to bathe daily. Most birds enjoy doing so and if you provide them with a shallow clean dish, they will usually be happy to bathe without encouragement. Some birds like to be misted, or even sprayed. Sprinkling Sevin dust underneath nest bowls and around nests will eliminate all kinds of insects.

What is a Ecosystem?


a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.
  • (in general use) a complex network or interconnected system."Silicon Valley's entrepreneurial ecosystem"

    In other words, when you walk in to a forest and see a pond with frogs and fish, this is an ecosystem. The water feeds the trees, the trees feed insects, the insects feed fish and frogs. It is a balanced system of connected organisms.

How to eliminate frogs from my yard


Part 1 of 3: Identifying the Frogs

Identify the frog species you're dealing with. Not only will this information help you get rid of the frogs (different species respond to different methods) but it will also ensure that you're not doing something illegal, as some species of frogs are protected by law. Invasive frogs that are a nuisance to both people and local ecology include:

• Bullfrogs outside of their native environment in eastern North America. They compete with native frogs, eat native frogs, and chytridiomycosis, an infectious disease that has led to the extinction of 100 frog species. [1]

• Cane toads outside of their native environment in Central and South America. While not a frog, many people reading this article will be dealing with these amphibians. They are especially rampant in Australia.

• Cuban tree frogs outside of their native habitat in Cuba. These are a big nuisance in Florida, where they even cause power outages.[2]

• Coqui frogs outside of their native environment in Puerto Rico.

Check the laws in your area. In many parts of the world, it's illegal to kill non-invasive species, but people are encouraged to manage invasive species (and in some cases it's illegal to release an invasive frog once you've caught it).


Part 2 of 3: Change the Environment

1) Drain any standing water. Frogs are attracted to moisture, so removing sources of water from your yard will cause most frogs to lose interest.

• You can rent a pump to get rid of most water sources.

• Birdbaths, swampy areas, bowls of water, and ponds are just a few examples of water sources that attract frogs.

• Removing sources of stagnant water will also drive away mosquitoes and other insects that frogs feed on, making the area even less appealing.

• If the water source in your yard is something you want to keep, like an artificial pond, try draining it and leaving the pond empty for a week. Most of the frog population should lose interest in this time and move on.

• Alternatively, add a filter or running fountain to your pond. This will cause the water to circulate, thereby eliminating most mosquitoes and other insects. The frogs will still be attracted to the water, but with a decrease in food supply, many may still end up moving on.


2) Trim your weeds. Tall grass, shrubs, or other bushy plants make the perfect hiding place for frogs. Clearing these elements away forces the frogs to be exposed, which is a condition they generally try to avoid.
• Tall plants around a water source is especially troublesome. If you want to maintain tall or bushy plants somewhere in your yard, position them as far away from any water source as possible.

3) Clear away any debris. Like tall grass, clutter in your yard serves as an excellent hiding place for frogs. Removing it will chase many frogs away.
• Remove empty pots, old lumber, piles of wood chips, or any other structure that may create a damp, dark place for frogs to hide.

4) Turn off outside lighting.[3] Light attracts insects, and insects attract frogs. Turning off your outdoor lights at night will reduce both insect and frog populations.
• Shut off garden lights and porch lights. Close the drapes and curtains in your house to reduce the amount of light filtering out from inside.

5) Keep pet food inside the house. While somewhat uncommon, frogs do occasionally steal dog food or cat food. Feed your pets inside or keep the dish inside when the dog or cat is not eating.

6) Kill the insects. Since flies, mosquitoes, and other insects are the primary food source for frogs, killing the bugs will deter frogs from coming to your yard.
• Use a bug zapper. Place the bug zapper on your porch to attract and kill all manner of flying insects.
• Spray organic insecticides. Many chemical insecticides will also kill the frogs, but most organic insecticides do not have that effect.

7) Set up fencing. Surround your property or pond with mesh netting or plastic fencing.
• Do not use chicken wire or chain-link fencing, since frogs can easily slip through these types of fences.
• Make sure that the fencing starts at ground level and stands tall. Frogs can leap a considerable height, so a standard-size fence will work better than a purposefully low one.
• Take precautions to keep the fence stable. Bury the support posts 1 foot (30.5 cm) underground, at minimum, and bury a portion of the fencing material beneath the ground, too.


Part 3 of 3: Physical Removal

1) Catch the frogs with a net. Use a butterfly net or another type of long-handled, thinly-meshed net to capture the frogs one by one.
• If you have an abundance of frogs, you may need to enlist the help of others to accomplish this task.
• Relocate the frogs. After catching the frogs, consider relocating them to a nearby pond or stream. When relocating frogs, however, it is important to introduce the frogs to an area that the breed or species can be naturally found in. Otherwise, you can upset the ecological balance of that habitat.
• Freeze the frogs to death.[4] If it is impossible to relocate the frogs, you can kill them humanely by freezing them. Place the frogs in a sealable container with air holes punched through the lid. Store this container in the refrigerator overnight. The frogs will ease into a coma-like state. The following day, move the container to the freezer and store the frogs there for 48 to 72 hours. Temperatures this cold should kill them.

2) Gather and destroy the tadpoles. Use a standard aquarium fish net to scoop up any tadpoles in your pond or other water source. Lay the tadpoles out in the sun for a day or so. The dry heat should kill them.
• You can lay the captured tadpoles out on the cement or lawn, but the drier to surface, the quicker the extermination should be.
• Alternatively, you could also bury the captured tadpoles underground. This, too, should kill them.

3) Set traps indoors. If the frogs have found their way indoors, set up standard mouse traps to kill them.
• Place these traps around any opening that leads from the outside to the inside, such as garage doors, basement windows and vents.

4) Use chemicals and organic sprays only as a last resort. While there are chemical pest control measures you can take to get rid of the frogs in your yard, these options often torment or kill the frogs slowly and should be avoided unless no other option has proven effective. When possible, use repelling measures rather than lethal ones.
• Try snake repellent.[5] Spraying snake repellent around the perimeter of your yard is often an effective repellent against frogs. In fact, snake repellent is usually about as effective at getting rid of frogs as it is at getting rid of snakes.
• Use herbicide. Studies suggest that certain weed killers chemically alter male frogs, stripping away their ability to reproduce.[6] As a result, spraying these herbicides in areas where frogs gather can greatly reduce future frog populations.
• Spray the frogs with citric acid. Mix 1.3 lb (600 g) dry citric acid with 1 gallon (4 liters) of water in a large spray bottle.[7] Spray the solution directly on the frogs. It should kill them almost immediately.
• Spread salt. If you do not have any plants near your pond, spread a little salt around the perimeter. Salt will burn the toes of the frogs, deterring them from the area. Note that salt will destroy plants, however.
• Spritz the frogs with caffeine. Concentrated caffeine will kill frogs by causing them to have heart attacks, but you can spread coffee grounds around the areas where frogs gather to deter them without killing them off. It will cause the frogs discomfort, but will not likely kill them.

5) Hire an exterminator. If you are uncertain about how to remove the frogs or are unsuccessful in your efforts, hire a professional.

What is the importance of natural vegetation in our life


Hi.

The best answer for this is as below, copied from http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090119035333AAao1yP


Vegetation or natural vegetation supports critical functions in the biosphere, at all possible spatial scales. First, vegetation regulates the flow of numerous biogeochemical cycles, most critically those of water, carbon, and nitrogen; it is also of great importance in local and global energy balances. Such cycles are important not only for global patterns of vegetation but also for those of climate.

Second, vegetation strongly affects soil characteristics, including soil volume, chemistry and texture, which feed back to affect various vegetational characteristics, including productivity and structure.

Third, vegetation serves as wildlife habitat and the energy source for the vast array of animal species on the planet and, ultimately, to those that feed on these. Vegetation is also critically important to the world economy, particularly in the use of fossil fuels as an energy source, but also in the global production of food, wood, fuel and other materials.

Perhaps most importantly, and often overlooked, global vegetation including algal communities has been the primary source of oxygen in the atmosphere, enabling the aerobic metabolism systems to evolve and persist.

Lastly, vegetation is psychologically important to humans, who evolved in direct contact with, and dependence on, vegetation, for food, shelter, and medicine.

Wildlife includes all non-domesticated plants, animals, and other organisms. Domesticating wild plant and animal species for human benefit has occurred many times all over the planet, and has a major impact on the environment, both positive and negative.

Wildlife can be found in all ecosystems, Deserts, rain forests, plains, and other areas-including the most developed urban sites-all have distinct forms of wildlife. While the term in popular culture usually refers to animals that are untouched by human factors, most scientists agree that wildlife around the world is impacted by human activities.

Anthropologists believe that the Stone Age peoples and hunter-gatherers relied on wildlife, both plant and animal, for their food. In fact, some species may have been hunted to extinction by early human hunters.

Many wildlife species have spiritual significance in different cultures around the world, and they and their products may be used as sacred objects in religious rituals. For example, eagles, hawks and their feathers have great cultural and spiritual value to Native Americans as religious objects

All wild populations of living things have many complex intertwining links with other living things around them. Large herbivorous animals such as the hippopotamus have populations of insectivorous birds that feed off the many parasitic insects that grow on the hippo. Should the hippo die out so to will these groups of birds, leading to further destruction as other species dependent on the birds are affected. Also referred to as a Domino effect, this series of chain reactions is by far the most destructive process that can occur in any ecological community.

Today, hunting, fishing, or gathering wildlife is still a significant food source in some parts of the world. In other areas, hunting and non-commercial fishing are mainly seen as a sport or recreation, with the edible meat as mostly a side benefit.
