Red jungle fowl is a very adaptable species of chicken diversity. You can find it anywhere in the world. The featured image was shot in UAE. The RJF is highly adapted and can survive all extremes of weather. The breed is highly sustainable and relies on local feedstuffs and kitchen wastes. #chicken #fowl
Being a desert explorer and dunes’ hiker, I always come to know new and amazing facts, some I understand quickly and the others take time and help from other colleagues to understand. Here is a mystery, I have found broken eggs on the top of the sand dunes many times, not only this year but before as well, mostly in the months of December, January and February.
Preview this post I really need help to understand this mystery. I have not seen big birds like pigeons or other birds but I have seen big black crows over there but only 1 or 2.
I’m desperately waiting to understand this mystery. I would ask the avian ecologist to help me in understanding this hidden phenomenon. I want to know why and what type of birds lay egg on the top of the dunes.
If you want to learn more about Crowdsignal please go to crowdsignal.com and join our little community all about feedback here.
We all have opinions! Curious about the opinion of your audience? Start asking with our poll block. It makes creating a poll as fast and simple as listing bullet points.
You can choose between a button or a list style for your answer options, and you can fully customize the styling of the block. By default the poll block will support your theme styling, but it’s up to you if you want to keep it. You can customize the style how you want, from font-family to border colours.
Just click in the poll below and start editing.
And everything else you expect from a Crowdsignal poll is also available — such as setting “single answer” or “multiple answer” choices, a customised confirmation message, poll timeframe, and avoidance of double voting.
Here is a short demo video for how to set up this block, not that you would need it 😉
You might have spotted it already, in the bottom left corner of this page: Our Feedback button.
This is a floating button that lives above your site’s content. Always visible this button makes giving feedback easy! User can send you a message and provide their email address so you could can get back to them. Needless to say that you can fully customize the design and text, including the label of the button itself. Feel free to make it a “Contact me” or “Say hello” button or anything you like.
And yes, you can change its placement! You can put the button in any corner of your site. Just try it! Click in the feedback and start editing.
Don’t miss out on your customers’ feedback. Keep your door open anytime and place a feedback button on all your pages.
Sometimes we need just quick and fast feedback from our audience. A quick voting button might be all you need. Fully customizable of course.
There is already a “like” button at the end of a WordPress post that you can click to express satisfaction or agreement. But what if you want to ask readers their opinion on a subject in the middle of a post? Or what if you want to present several ideas and find out which one is the most popular? Wouldn’t it be great to ask readers what they think without having to leave the editor or switch to another service or plugin?
That’s what we thought! Say hello to our Voting Block:
It’s a simple block that adds two voting buttons—thumbs up, thumbs down—to your post wherever you want to place them. Customize the block in different sizes and colors, with or without a border, and with or without a visible vote counter. Put several in a single post, next to different ideas, to see how they stack up for readers. Make the block your own!
The Applause block is a simpler and more playful version of our Voting block. The main differences are users only being able to give positive feedback and encouraging users to “make as much noise as they want”. Meaning this block does not only allow repeated voting, but even encourages it.
Let your audience make some noise with a big round of applause.
The block currently comes in three different sizes, and can be customised with a button-like styling, including a border, border radius and some colour customisation options.
Embed Surveys & Forms
So far we only talked about quick and fast ways to collect feedback or opinions from your audience. But what if you have many questions or want to create simple forms? You can do this with Crowdsignal, too! Create a survey or form on app.crowdsignal.com and embed it into your WordPress post or site. Similar like here:
The Crowdsignal survey above was embedded using our “Single question per page mode.” It’s exactly what it sounds like: In this mode, no matter how many questions your survey has, your respondents will always see one question at a time. Single Mode shines when you embed a survey into your website or blog post. Surveys with multiple questions can take up a lot of space, overwhelming your site. If you’re not sure whether your readers will take the survey at all, it disrupts the reading experience. With Single Mode, a survey uses the same amount of space as an image, even a really long survey.
Once they provide an answer (or skip the question), the next question loads. It has a playful feel, like flipping through a slide show. Every answered question feels like progress.
You can choose between several transition options, and decide whether the questions should move from top to bottom, or from left to right.
We have built a Gutenberg block for you that makes it easier than ever before to track your Net Promoter Score on WordPress. If you have previewed this post before, you might have seen the NPS question already in a modal window.
The moment you add the block, you are basically done. The design of the block is based on your site’s theme. You can still customize the styling of the block, or edit the questions, but that might not even be necessary.
To get the most out of your NPS data, it is important to show the question only to users that are already familiar with your service or product. You can configure the block to only show to repeat visitors. It’s more likely you will get feedback from someone who knows what they are talking about, and you can make sure new users are not interrupted during their first visit to your site.
After you publish the block go to the results page of the block and monitor your results. We have built a special results page for you to track your NPS score and to analyse any additional feedback.
We provide an analytics dashboard with our block that automatically calculates the Net Promoter Score for you in real-time and allows you to monitor your score over time. Are the differences geographic? Filter your results based on countries.
By the way, did you know you also can get email notifications or a ping in your Slack channel any time you get an NPS rating? Just click on the little “connect” button on your results page.
How Zygophylum. q provides life supporting opportunities to other living creatures?
Zygophyllum qatarense provides not only food (leaves and twigs for livestock and wild animals), but also provide life support to the birds and insects. This plant is also an important source of water for camels & goats (the plant’s bulbs are full of water and minerals), the birds (migratory birds eat the bulbs for water and salts), flowers provide nectars for the butterflies and bees (ultimately provide prey for migratory birds), and the mature/fallen bulbs become the food for the detritivores. https://youtu.be/Izc8O6tdj5A
Zygophyllum qatarense is the only source of water in the extreme dry conditions of the EQ Desert
This is really a unique flora with almost 0 % water loss. It absorbs moisture from the atmosphere and the scatter roots in the sands absorb moisture from the due in the cooler hours of the night. I call this plant a water trap in the desert. The plant redirects or reabsorbs the moisture of the transpiration with the help of the tiny hairs. This plant is really very strange and unique. It is called Harram in Arabic. https://arkbiodiv.com/2021/11/14/leaves-and-twigs-of-zygophyllum-qatarense/
Zygophyllum is nomads’ medicine – An Additional Note

Lowering of blood pressure

Pain killer and antipyretic
Local anesthesia (the extract is applied on the joints and longbone muscles)
Anti-histamine/antiallergic activity, stimulation
Contraction of the uterus (full of phytoenzymes) and
