Headline June 06, 2017/ ''' *EVEREST'S EMULATION : !WOW!* '''


!WOW!* '''

THE WORLD,  ONE  FINE DAY,   -would  just sit up and take notice,   and maybe understand, that for   *The World Students Society* to get this far, is and has been-

Nothing less and short of being totally akin to having climbed some of the world's most difficult and  highest peaks,  and  is now snaking to the peak of the highest accomplishment ever-

The Honour and Summing of  Global Elections at the very beginning of next year,  2018.   This  *Divine Objective And Trust And Responsibility*  now rests with this great nation America, -the great students of America.

To address new  *mortal challenges and terrible complexities* with issues specific to the entire world and mankind, The World Students Society is your only and best hope.

I said that to the Students over 16 years ago. I say this to the students, once again. The leaders of the  Free World  would be well advised to listen up and act on this. 

No other solution will work. Barring this, you all will only  build this beautiful world, on fine granular sand.

THE PATH TO THE SUMMIT OF EVEREST ; is full of exemplary acts of valor, courage, chivalry and  sacrifices. 

When this mountaineer from  *Proud Pakistan*  Jabbar Bhatti, and his Sherpa ran out of  oxygen on their descent and had to spend the night at a landmark known as  ''The Balcony'' -located on the south side of the mountain a short distance from Camp 4.

''There was no cover, and they were exposed to the elements. This is a kind of record, few ever survive such an ordeal''.

The narrator here, is another Pakistani climber, Saad Mohammed, who was forced to abandon his attempt  to  summit  Mount Everest  for the sake of his injured fellow climber-

Who had conquered the highest peak in the world, but ran out of bottled oxygen on his way down.

His quest to fulfill a lifelong ambition was cut short as efforts and resources were diverted towards saving veteran climber Abdul Jabbar Bhatti, who was stricken with frostbite after being stuck overnight at an altitude of around 8,500 meters-

In the very heart of the  Death Zone that has claimed the lives of dozen of climbers over the years.

The two have climbed together in the past; in 2012, as part of the successful  10-member   Pakistan-China-Friendship expedition  on Spantik Peak.

The expedition led by Climber Jabbar Bhatti, gave him a lot of courage to take on bigger challenges. That's how he now, found himself battling for his and the Sherpa's life. 

As the story unfolds, on May 22, Mr. Mohammed, who had been updating his locations on social media via satellite phone, tweeted:
''We have success but Mr. Bhatti and Sherpa were rescued above Camp 4. Now out of danger.''

According to him, Mr. Bhatti was better acclimatized and way ahead, and on May 21 became the fourth Pakistani to conquer Everest.

Immediately afterwards he and his climbing partner  Sangi Allping Sherpa went missing for several hours, creating a scare for the tour operator. Six Sherpas were dedicated to rescuing the two climbers, who were stuck at 8,500 meters.

''Mr. Bhatti stopped to catch his breath when he ran out of oxygen. He was so tired he could not continue descending and was exposed to extreme conditions without food or water. In a few hours, frostbite disabled both climbers,'' he said.

Two days later, Mr. Mohammed posted the tweet : ''The decision to come Base Camp was right. Mr. Bhatti was  heli-rescued from Camp 3. Was very weak and disturbed.''

Dan Richards, the CEO of  Global Rescue, a travel risk management, has seen a  50 percent increase in number of rescues they've done this year of climbers suffering acute  Mountain Sickness-

35 total compared  to just  20   by the same time last year.

He believes climbers rushing to beat the crowds before they're acclimatized maybe exacerbating the problem.

Higher altitudes mean the body is getting less oxygen. With each breath, so that all  physical tasks become harder.

Symptoms of  altitude sickness  include  confusion, impaired judgment. headaches, nausea and poor balance.

The heavy traffic is more than an annoyance, the waiting can actually be dangerous, explained  Kuntal Joisher,  an  Indian climber who reached the peak in 2016.

''Since you are moving closer slow and spending a lot of time waiting and standing still there is a good chance that your body and its extremities would become cold and susceptible to frost bite,'' he said.

''The other problem is that every minute spent waiting and walking behind extremely slow moving traffic means your precious bottled oxygen is getting wasted.''

Concerns over safety issues and environmental damage caused by growing crowds on Everest reached crescendo in 2011, when a photo by a German mountaineer of   ''human snake''   of some of the-

600 climbers trudging upwards to the summit on one day attracted worldwide attention.

Eleven people died on the mountain that year, including three Nepali guides.

But twin tragedies   -the death of  16 Sherpas killed  by falling ice in 2014, followed by the earthquake triggered  avalanche  in 2015 that claimed lives of 18   -dealt a blow to the industry, which is a huge part of Nepal's tourism economy,

Everest Permits alone are bringing $4.5 million, with additional income to hotels, guides and porters and transportation companies, according to Alan Arnette, a  Colorado climber and Everest blogger.

For completeness, allow me to sum up in this great climbers own words:

''I had spent more than a month and half acclimatizing and re-acclimatizing 
and had made it as high as Camp 3, which is located at  7,050 meters, roughly 1,800 meters below the summit.

Wind speed varied between 20  to  70 Kmph and temps dropped below zero even during the day,'' he said.

Mr. Saad Mohammed is now back in Kathmandu,  psychologically nursing and keeping Mr, Jabbar Bhatti's company at the hospital, -the climber whose precious life he helped save. and in the process-

Walked  away from the unique world honour of conquering Everest.

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Sherpas. Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all on !WOW!  -the World Students Society and Twitter-!E-WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011:
