The Blue Dream Project, an Italo-Canadian non-profit organization, works for the restoration of the oceans. It was established to preserve and to protect the marine environment from plastic pollution. The organization aims to encourage a more sustainable approach to life and more specifically, to promote the sustainable use of plastics, from production to disposal.

 

The Project’s first step is the construction of a wooden schooner according to the style and traditional methods of Nova Scotia, to preserve the ethical values laying in ancient artisanal skills such as the shipwright, sustainable fishing methods as it once used to be and ecological approaches to the environment.

 

This “new ambassador,” the result of the combined forces of donors and supporters around the world, will be made available to citizens, researchers and students for analysis and information campaigns about pollution of the sea and to raise public awareness on the health of our oceans. The schooner will be operational in the spring 2016, to monitor the density of plastic waste in the sea, providing information, data and proposals to protect the marine environment.

From Soilborn.org:

 

The American River farm and native plant nursery is a collaboration between Soil Born Farm Urban Agriculture Project and the Sacramento Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, and is intended to be the permanent home for both organizations. Approximately 25 acres in size, with the potential for a 20 acre addition, this property will be transitioned into an organic farm and native plant nursery with a full complement of youth and adult interpretive and educational activities relevant to and supportive of our unique river ecosystem.

 

Though completely surrounded by urban development, the farm resides within the Goethe reach of the American River Parkway. In stark contrast to the strip malls and residential houses that dominate the larger landscape of Sacramento, this amazing landscape is dominated by broad vistas, abundant river habitat and deep alluvial soils. Though the farm is in its early developmental stage, the vision for the ranch is to create a “wild farm.” This unique ecological approach to farming integrates native perennial wildlife corridors with annual and perennial orchard crop production.

Simon Levy presents Vector Symbolic Architectures: A New Building Material for Artificial General Intelligence by Simon Levy of Washington and Lee University and Ross Gayler

(I'd like to take a class from Simon Levy, he is a great teacher from what I could see. Sorry that the photo is poor of him here, but this particular slide mad me think and do quite a bit of homework to increased my understanding of this topic.)

 

The Need for New Representational Principles

(My notes on this, please feel free to add or clarify anything I have said, it is just my [poor] understanding.)

 

- Ecological Affordance introduced by James J. Gibson (1979), The Ecological Approach to Visual Perception (an interesting sidebar - this was about the last thing that Gibson published before his death in 1979 at age 75.) A number of his writings are on-line, published as the Purple Perils

 

- Distributed Connectionist Representations (PDP - which is Parallel Distributed Processing was the start of Connectionism I had colleagues who did research in this area in the early 1990s, at the time I was not as curious as I could have been, being wrapped up in some completely different projects. Now - I have begun to tie it together, funny how that works! The classic work was done by James McClelland, David Rumelhart and the PDP Research Group. They wrote a two volume book: Parallel Distributed Processing: Explorations in the Microstructure of Cognition in 1986)

Laboratory of Seymour Ziginan This laboratory is investigating basic mechanisms of photooxidative stress to the ocular lens due to environmentally compatible UVA radiation. This type of oxidative stress contributes to human cataract formation. Other studies are the search for and use of chemical antioxidants to retard the damage that occurs. Cultured mammalian lens epithelial cells and whole lenses in vitro are exposed to environmentally compatible UVA radiation with or without previous antioxidant feeding. The following parameters of lens damage are examined: molecular excitation to singlet states via NADPH (the absorber): cell growth inhibition and cell death; catalase maclivauon: cytoskeletal description (of actin. tubulin. integrins); and cell membrane damage (lipid oxidation, loss of gap junction integrity and intercellular chemical communications). Thus far. the most successful antioxidant to reduce these deficiencies is alpha-tocopherol (10 ^ig/ml) and tea polvphenols (especially from green tea). The preliminary phases of the research are usually carried out using marine animal eyes (i.e., smooth dogfish) as models. Our goal is to provide information that will suggest means to retard human cataract formation. Staff Zigman. Seymour. Laboratory Director, Professor of Ophthalmology.

Molecular, cellular, and ecological approaches are used to complement this organismal approach, and there is emphasis on sensory biology and behavioral ecology. Laboratory studies on the mechanisms and functions of polarized light sensiiivity in cephalopods are underway. Olfactory sensing by Nautilus (which functions in food detection and location as well as mate choice) is being studied in the laboratory. Visual features that octopuses use for maze learning are also being investigated. Lab experiments in large indoor seawater tanks are being conducted to determine how male squids. Laligo pealeii, use visual, then contact, chemical cues in egg capsules to initiate highly robust agonistic behavior. The functional morphology and neurobiology of the chromatophore system of cephalopods are studied on a variety of cephalopod species, and image analysis techniques are being developed to study crypsis and the mechanisms that enable cryptic body patterns to be neurally regulated by visual input. Various aspects of predation, antipredator defenses, and reproduction are conducted in field sites worldwide. Sexual selection theory is being tested using squid and cuttlefish. Field and laboratory studies focus on mechanisms of agonistic behavior.

Named after the desert-dwelling plants that survive while consuming very little, the C-Cactus is a green concept that minimizes both the amount of materials that go into its construction and the amount of fuel it needs to operate. The latter half of that equation comes from its hybrid HDi diesel-electric powertrain equipped with a ZEV mode. Like sister company's Peugeot 308 Hybride HDi, the C-Cactus also delivers 70 mpg in the combined cycle, and it actually beats the Peugeot show car's C02 output, emitting a paltry 78 g/km. But the car's ecological approach doesn't end there.The engineering team's mission was to minimize the use of unnecessary materials, and as such, some interesting, innovative details find their way onto (and into) the Cactus. Take the body, for example. Both the upper part of the front fascia and the lower part of the rear hatch use the same panel, with the taillamps residing in the same openings used up front for the headlights. (In a neat turn, the taillamp assemblies are see-through from the inside of th car, granting the driver some extra rear visibility.) There's no traditional hood on the Cactus, either. Instead, the 'hood" and fenders are a single, fixed piece. Access to features that require checking, filling or other maintenance, like oil and windshield washer fluid, are accessed via a flap directly ahead of the windscreen.

 

SN/NC: Theobroma Grandiflorum, Sterculiaceae Family

 

Among the Amazonian fruits, the cupuaçu stands out for its economic potential. The pulp of the fruit has a yellowish-white color and strong flavor, being very appreciated by local communities, and also international markets. The seeds contain high amounts of fat and may be used in food products and in cosmetics. The seeds can also be processed to yield a chocolate-like product called “cupulate”. Thus, the rising commercial interest of this fruit has led to the development of new industries and has encouraged research on this food product. Moreover, this tree grows in synergy with other native rainforest species, offering an ecological approach for sustainable agroflorestal management and preservation.

 

Onder de vruchten van de Amazone valt de cupuaçu op door zijn economische potentieel. Het vruchtvlees heeft een geelwitte kleur en een sterke smaak, wat zeer gewaardeerd wordt door lokale gemeenschappen, maar ook door internationale markten. De zaden bevatten veel vet en kunnen gebruikt worden in voedingsproducten en in cosmetica. De zaden kunnen ook worden verwerkt tot een chocoladeachtig product dat "cupulaat" wordt genoemd. Zo heeft de stijgende commerciële interesse van dit fruit geleid tot de ontwikkeling van nieuwe industrieën en heeft het onderzoek naar dit voedingsproduct aangemoedigd. Bovendien groeit deze boom in synergie met andere inheemse soorten uit het regenwoud, wat een ecologische benadering biedt voor duurzaam beheer en behoud van agroflorestal.

 

Da mesma família do cacau, o cupuaçuzeiro é uma planta originária da Amazônia, muito encontrada em estado silvestre, quando pode viver até 80 anos e alcançar mais de 30m de altura.

No norte, este vegetal é multiplicado por enxertia de borbulhia ou garfagem e por sementes. O fruto maduro apresenta cor marrom, casca dura, lenhosa e quebrável. Sua polpa fica amarela ou esbranquiçada e depreende da casca com facilidade. Ela reverte cerca de 30 a 40 sementes e tem sabor acido e cheiro agradável.

As variedades mais conhecidas do cupuaçuzeiro são: cupuaçu - redondo (frutos menores arredondados); cupuaçu - mamona (frutos alongados, maiores, com casca bem grossa e mais pesados) e cupuaçu mamau - de massa (fruto arredondado sem sementes).

A casca do cupuaçu representa cerca de 50% de seu peso, sendo o restante 30% de polpa e 20% de sementes.

O beneficiamento ou retirada da polpa é feito via manual com tesoura ou por máquina despolpadora.

A polpa do cupuaçu é utilizada para sucos, doces, sorvetes, cremes, tortas, biscoitos, bolos, etc.

Sua semente produz um chocolate claro de boa qualidade (cupolate).

A casca do fruto é usada como adubo orgânico ou ração animal. (From the site www.florestaaguadonorte.com.br - Carmem Coimbra)

 

Theobroma grandiflorum, de nombre común copoazú,1​ copoasu, cupuazú, cupuassu, cupu assu o cacao blanco, es originario de toda la Amazonia oriental y centro de Sudamérica principalmente en Perú y Bolivia en la región norte de Brasil y al sur de Venezuela, su hábitat natural es el bosque tropical húmedo en terrenos altos no inundables, pH entre 6,0 y 6,5 y una temperatura entre 22 y 27 °C. En Bolivia su utilización es industrial ya que de él se fabrican pulpa, chocolate blanco, manteca, licor y otros productos de exportación.

Alcanza los 14-18 m de altura, y 5-9 m de diámetro; hojas simples, oblongas, coriáceas, de 22-38 cm × 6-13 cm . Semillas, envueltas en pulpa mucilaginosa, blanca amarillenta, ácida, buen aroma.

Un árbol de 5 años produce 30 frutos, y un árbol maduro (>8 años) unos 70. Hay plantas con frutos sin semillas, llamadas de copoazú-mamaú, pero comercialmente despreciables: ácidos, y productividad baja.

Al igual que el cacao necesita sombra para crecer, así que es innecesario deforestar para sembrarlo.

El copoazú, a diferencia del cacao, presenta más pulpa que semilla, en una relación de 2 a 1, así que se puede aprovechar la pulpa, cosa que no es posible con el cacao.

La pulpa del copoazú es de color blanco, con altos contenidos de fósforo, pectina y contenidos medios de calcio y vitamina C. Se utiliza en la elaboración de jugos, pasteles,2​ néctares, mermeladas, compotas, gelatinas y dulces. Del fruto también se aprovecha su semilla, que contiene porcentajes altos de proteína y grasa, para la preparación de cupulate, un producto con características similares al chocolate.

Sus semillas son utilizadas por las industrias de productos cosméticos para hacer cremes e cosméticos.

  

Parmi les fruits amazoniens, le cupuaçu se distingue par son potentiel économique. La pulpe du fruit a une couleur blanc jaunâtre et une saveur forte, très appréciée par les communautés locales, ainsi que par les marchés internationaux. Les graines contiennent de grandes quantités de matières grasses et peuvent être utilisées dans les produits alimentaires et les cosmétiques. Les graines peuvent également être transformées pour donner un produit de type chocolat appelé «cupule». Ainsi, l'intérêt commercial croissant de ce fruit a conduit au développement de nouvelles industries et a encouragé la recherche sur ce produit alimentaire. De plus, cet arbre se développe en synergie avec d'autres espèces indigènes de forêt tropicale, offrant une approche écologique pour une gestion et une conservation agroflorestale durable.

  

Unter den Amazonasfrüchten zeichnet sich der Cupuaçu durch sein wirtschaftliches Potenzial aus. Das Fruchtfleisch hat eine gelblich-weiße Farbe und einen starken Geschmack, was von den lokalen Gemeinschaften und auch von den internationalen Märkten sehr geschätzt wird. Die Samen enthalten viel Fett und können in Lebensmitteln und in Kosmetika verwendet werden. Die Samen können auch zu einem schokoladenähnlichen Produkt namens „Cupulate“ verarbeitet werden. Das steigende kommerzielle Interesse an dieser Frucht hat zur Entwicklung neuer Industrien geführt und die Forschung zu diesem Lebensmittelprodukt gefördert. Darüber hinaus wächst dieser Baum in Synergie mit anderen einheimischen Regenwaldarten und bietet einen ökologischen Ansatz für eine nachhaltige Bewirtschaftung und Erhaltung des Agroflorestals.

  

Tra i frutti amazzonici, il cupuaçu si distingue per il suo potenziale economico. La polpa del frutto ha un colore bianco-giallastro e un sapore forte, molto apprezzato dalle comunità locali e anche dai mercati internazionali. I semi contengono elevate quantità di grasso e possono essere utilizzati in prodotti alimentari e cosmetici. I semi possono anche essere lavorati per produrre un prodotto simile al cioccolato chiamato "cupolato". Pertanto, il crescente interesse commerciale di questo frutto ha portato allo sviluppo di nuove industrie e ha incoraggiato la ricerca su questo prodotto alimentare. Inoltre, questo albero cresce in sinergia con altre specie autoctone della foresta pluviale, offrendo un approccio ecologico per la gestione e la conservazione agroflorestali sostenibili.

 

アマゾンの果物の中で、クプアスはその経済的可能性で際立っています。 果実の果肉は黄白色で強い風味があり、地域社会や国際市場からも高く評価されています。 種子には脂肪が多く含まれており、食品や化粧品に使用できます。 種子を処理して、「cupulate」と呼ばれるチョコレートのような製品を作ることもできます。 したがって、この果物の商業的関心の高まりは、新しい産業の発展につながり、この食品に関する研究を奨励しています。 さらに、この木は他の在来の熱帯雨林種との相乗効果で成長し、持続可能な農林地の管理と保全のための生態学的アプローチを提供します。

 

在亞馬遜水果中,cupuaçu以其經濟潛力脫穎而出。 水果的果肉呈黃白色,味道濃郁,深受當地社區和國際市場的讚賞。 種子含有大量脂肪,可用於食品和化妝品中。 還可以將種子加工成類似巧克力的產品,稱為“ cupulate”。 因此,這種水果日益增長的商業興趣導致了新產業的發展,並鼓勵了對該食品的研究。 此外,這棵樹與其他本地雨林物種協同生長,為可持續的農植物管理和保護提供了一種生態方法。

Bangladeshis rally at United Nations headquarters in New York demand cancellation of Indian River Linking Project

 

Bangladeshis demanded cancellation of the Indian River Linking Project (IRLP) aimed at diverting water of the Brahmaputra and the Ganges rivers away from Bangladesh and toward western and southern India. The demand was made at a rally held in front of the United Nations headquarters in New York on May 25. Organized by Bangladesh Environment Network (BEN), the global network of non-resident Bangladeshis and their international friends, the rally noted that IRLP would harm Indo-Bangladesh friendship that was forged during Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971.

 

Drawing attention of the international community, the rally noted that IRLP contravenes the 1997 UN Convention on Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses. It even violates the 1996 Indo-Bangladesh Ganges Water Sharing Treaty.

 

The rally observed that IRLP is a throw back into the past and does not reflect the new, twenty-first century attitude to rivers and nature and does not accord with the spirit of the “Rio plus 20” conference to be held this summer to celebrate Earth Summit of 1992. The new attitude enjoins all to abandon the Commercial Approach and to adopt the Ecological Approach to rivers. While the Commercial Approach converts rivers into sources of contention among co-riparian countries, the Ecological Approach can convert rivers into bonds of friendship.

 

The rally urged the Indian government to remove all water diversionary structures that it has built on rivers flowing from India into Bangladesh so that Indo-Bangladesh cooperation can flourish in different spheres. The rally noted that IRLP was not a good use of investible resources even for India, because international experience shows that diversion of rivers ultimately proves harmful for both the origin and the destination areas. It noted that conscious sections of the Indian population are also opposing IRLP.

 

The speakers at the rally expressed both surprise and dismay at the Indian Supreme Court’s recent (February 27, 2012) directive issued to the Indian government to start implementing IRLP in 30 days and complete this mammoth (with estimated budget of about $200 billion) by 2016. The rally regretted that the directive shows no awareness of the fact that the project concerns international rivers which are shared by Bangladesh and will do significant harm to Bangladesh’s ecology and economy.

 

The rally urged the Bangladesh government to oppose IRLP more vigorously, and if necessary to raise the issue in appropriate international forums. It also urged the Bangladesh government to sign the 1997 UN Convention on Non-navigations Uses of International Watercourses and to persuade India and other countries of the subcontinent to sign it too.

 

The participants of the rally carried many posters, maps, graphs, and pictures explaining the likely devastating effect of IRLP on Bangladesh based on the deleterious effects that India’s previous diversionary structures, such as Farakka Barrage (on the Ganges River) and Gajoldoba barrage (on the Teesta River), already had on Bangladesh. The rally expressed resolve to continue the movement against IRLP and, if necessary, to hold an even bigger rally at United Nations headquarters in September during the annual General Assembly session, when the leaders of the world’s nations will gather in New York.

 

Members and leaders of many non-resident Bangladeshi community and professional organizations joined this rally and expressed their support to its demands. There was representation from Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (BAPA) too.

 

Conducted by Sayed Fazlur Rahman, Coordinator of BEN chapter for New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut states of the USA, the rally was addressed by, among others, Dr. Ziauddin Ahmed, professor of Drexel University Medical School (Philadelphia); Nurul Kabir, leader of South Asia Alliance for Democracy (based in Boston); Mohidul Hoque Khan, former General Secretary of BAPA; Belal Beg, eminent columnist and media personality; Nini Wahed, BEN Coordinating Committee member; Rana Ferdous Chowdhury, former General Secretary of Bangladesh Society, New York; Abul Kashem, former Secretary of Bangladesh Government; Fahim Rezanur, leader of Ghatak-Dalal Nirmul Committee in the USA; Khourshedul Islam, President of Progressive Forum in New York; Subrata Biswas, leader of Udichi in New York; Ahsanul Haque, President of South Asian Civil Service Association in New York; A.K.M. Nurul Haque, President of New York chapter of Aggression Protection International

Federal Committee: We Need Fat Interventions At Worksites

 

Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee calls for increased ‘monitoring’ of kids’ weight, mandatory check-ups

BY: Elizabeth Harrington

November 7, 2014

 

The federal committee charged with creating nutrition guidelines for Americans is calling for fat interventions at workplaces.

 

During a presentation at the sixth meeting of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) on Friday, the committee said government needs to take “bold action” to fight obesity.

 

The solutions included “comprehensive” obesity interventions in “health care, the community, public health facilities, and work sites.”

 

“The public should monitor body weight and engage with providers in evidence-based approaches aimed at achieving and maintaining healthy body weight,” the panel said in a presentation on “Food and Nutrient Intakes, and Health.”

 

The committee, which is responsible for creating new nutrition standards that are used to create policy at the federal level, has previously called for moving Americans to “plant-based” diets, and using text message interventions to get people to lose weight.

 

“Bold action is needed to confront the Nation’s obesity epidemic and its devastating metabolic consequences,” a slide said during the presentation on Friday. “Quality of care guidelines need to be revised to incentivize personalized lifestyle and nutrition interventions.”

 

The committee said it is “imperative” to create obesity interventions that would bring in “trained interventionists and professional nutrition service providers” for “delivery in multiple settings.”

 

The panel claimed that 65 percent of adult females and 70 percent of adult males are overweight or obese, and argued that “environmental strategies” are needed to fight obesity.

 

“Complement health care and public health initiatives with collaborative programming in agriculture, retail, educational, and social service settings lifestyle for long-term adoption of health nutrition and lifestyle behavior,” read one recommendation.

 

Dr. Barbara Millen, the chair of DGAC, said obesity interventions must be expanded beyond health care settings.

 

“It’s pretty clear in a public health model with focus on the individual as well as the populations that all of this cannot be accomplished in a health care setting,” she said. “It really will take a broad strategy across environments … not only traditional health care, community settings. And these can’t be a siloed approach but across sectors to be effective.”

 

Dr. Anna Maria Siega-Riz, a nutritional epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, agreed and called for more monitoring of children’s weight, and for mandatory doctors visits.

 

“I was pretty much stunned, though I’m quite well aware of the chronic health care outcomes for young adults and preadolescents,” she said. “The more we can do to call for really bold action among these groups in a meaningful way of trying to combat this.”

 

“Not just going with schools, but when we think about the health care system, there are very little check ups required for kids,” Siega-Riz said. “We can make a strong call for more monitoring and help for this population before they actually carry out these outcomes for the rest of their lives.”

 

The committee continued to push for American’s to consume less meat, and recommended the Mediterranean diet, which consists of eating primarily plant-based foods.

 

Siega-Riz’s presentation recommended “lower consumption of red meats, moderate intake of alcohol, [and] low intake of sugar-sweetened foods and drinks.”

 

“The U.S. population should consume dietary patterns that are: rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, fish/seafood, legumes, lean meat, and nuts,” a slide said.

 

The committee has been criticized for putting environmentalism over food science. Angela Tagtow, who was appointed to oversee DGAC this summer, has called for “social justice” in food policy and says she takes an “ecological” approach to nutrition.

 

Dear All:

 

Please find below the English version of the report on the rally held on May 25 in New York at the United Nations headquarters, against Indian River Linking Project. (The Bangla version of the reported was presented earlier.) Attached are also two pictures of the rally. You are welcome to share it with other networks and media outlets.

 

We thank all who attended and helped to make the rally a success and hope that more will join future programs against IRLP.

 

Sincerely,

BEN Editor

  

Bangladeshis rally at United Nations headquarters in New York demand cancellation of Indian River Linking Project

 

Bangladeshis demanded cancellation of the Indian River Linking Project (IRLP) aimed at diverting water of the Brahmaputra and the Ganges rivers away from Bangladesh and toward western and southern India. The demand was made at a rally held in front of the United Nations headquarters in New York on May 25. Organized by Bangladesh Environment Network (BEN), the global network of non-resident Bangladeshis and their international friends, the rally noted that IRLP would harm Indo-Bangladesh friendship that was forged during Bangladesh’s Liberation War in 1971.

 

Drawing attention of the international community, the rally noted that IRLP contravenes the 1997 UN Convention on Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses. It even violates the 1996 Indo-Bangladesh Ganges Water Sharing Treaty.

 

The rally observed that IRLP is a throw back into the past and does not reflect the new, twenty-first century attitude to rivers and nature and does not accord with the spirit of the “Rio plus 20” conference to be held this summer to celebrate Earth Summit of 1992. The new attitude enjoins all to abandon the Commercial Approach and to adopt the Ecological Approach to rivers. While the Commercial Approach converts rivers into sources of contention among co-riparian countries, the Ecological Approach can convert rivers into bonds of friendship.

 

The rally urged the Indian government to remove all water diversionary structures that it has built on rivers flowing from India into Bangladesh so that Indo-Bangladesh cooperation can flourish in different spheres. The rally noted that IRLP was not a good use of investible resources even for India, because international experience shows that diversion of rivers ultimately proves harmful for both the origin and the destination areas. It noted that conscious sections of the Indian population are also opposing IRLP.

 

The speakers at the rally expressed both surprise and dismay at the Indian Supreme Court’s recent (February 27, 2012) directive issued to the Indian government to start implementing IRLP in 30 days and complete this mammoth (with estimated budget of about $200 billion) by 2016. The rally regretted that the directive shows no awareness of the fact that the project concerns international rivers which are shared by Bangladesh and will do significant harm to Bangladesh’s ecology and economy.

 

The rally urged the Bangladesh government to oppose IRLP more vigorously, and if necessary to raise the issue in appropriate international forums. It also urged the Bangladesh government to sign the 1997 UN Convention on Non-navigations Uses of International Watercourses and to persuade India and other countries of the subcontinent to sign it too.

 

The participants of the rally carried many posters, maps, graphs, and pictures explaining the likely devastating effect of IRLP on Bangladesh based on the deleterious effects that India’s previous diversionary structures, such as Farakka Barrage (on the Ganges River) and Gajoldoba barrage (on the Teesta River), already had on Bangladesh. The rally expressed resolve to continue the movement against IRLP and, if necessary, to hold an even bigger rally at United Nations headquarters in September during the annual General Assembly session, when the leaders of the world’s nations will gather in New York.

 

Members and leaders of many non-resident Bangladeshi community and professional organizations joined this rally and expressed their support to its demands. There was representation from Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (BAPA) too.

 

Conducted by Sayed Fazlur Rahman, Coordinator of BEN chapter for New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut states of the USA, the rally was addressed by, among others, Dr. Ziauddin Ahmed, professor of Drexel University Medical School (Philadelphia); Nurul Kabir, leader of South Asia Alliance for Democracy (based in Boston); Mohidul Hoque Khan, former General Secretary of BAPA; Belal Beg, eminent columnist and media personality; Nini Wahed, BEN Coordinating Committee member; Rana Ferdous Chowdhury, former General Secretary of Bangladesh Society, New York; Abul Kashem, former Secretary of Bangladesh Government; Fahim Rezanur, leader of Ghatak-Dalal Nirmul Committee in the USA; Khourshedul Islam, President of Progressive Forum in New York; Subrata Biswas, leader of Udichi in New York; Ahsanul Haque, President of South Asian Civil Service Association in New York; A.K.M.

“sasrai-Movement” translated as “bold cultural revolution” by the Pope

Pope Francis says the world urgently needs a “bold cultural revolution” to tackle the looming challenge of catastrophic climate change while addressing the needs of the poor. In a much-anticipated, 184-page encyclical, the reformist Pope endorsed the scientific consensus that humankind is causing a dramatic shift in the world’s climate, which will have the greatest impact on the world’s poor. But he rejected the notion that market mechanisms or technological approaches alone can provide the solution.

 

Since 2004 “sasrai-Movement” appeals `We must get each child caring to each particle of food and resources. Combat the Climate Change, Global Warming, Poverty, Hunger, Disaster, Ensure Peace, Justice, Dignity and Rights for Each - `save a bit, reserve, preserve, rejuvenate and conserve resources.’ Unfortunately most of the focus is human biased, but everything on this planet is symbiotically connected - plants, animals, humans and the Earth itself. We are in need of far sighted Goal & Target.

Planet in Need:

Each Creature Equality

Gender Equality

`sasrai’ Living

Stop Consumption Slavery

Stop Advertisement Administered Lifestyle

 

Pope Francis indicates: “Today, we have to realize that a true ecological approach always becomes a so¬cial approach; it must integrate questions of jus¬tice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor,”

SAMUn. A. ORIMIS The Ground Dove with its chestnut wing patches is not much larger than a House Sparrow. The Double-crested Cormorant, Brown Pelican, Ring- billed Gull, and Great Blue Heron are abundant throughout the entire area. Also commonly seen are the Ground Dove, Red-bellied Woodpecker, and Palm Warbler. Painted Buntings are found at many feeders. Continuing south on AlA, through Jensen Beach and south of the Outrigger Restaurant, one comes to St. Joseph's Academy on the east side of the road. There is an area of water and^ swamp here that has become a roost for Anhingas. Many birds can be seen from AlA and more by turning into the School driveway. Eighteen species were seen here on one visit. The Yellow-crowned Night Heron can often be seen within 30 feet, and as many as 20 to 30 Anhingas at a distance of 100 to 150 feet. Continuing south on AlA leads to the two bridges to Point Sewall and on to Hutchinson's Island. The first bridge is known locally as the "ten-cent bridge" and the second one as the "twenty-five cent bridge." The tolls are to be discontinued in the fall of 1963. On both bridges, Ruddy Turnstones, Ring-billed Gulls and Royal Terns compete for snacks from the fishermen on the bridge. One Common Egret, "Joe," adroitly evades auto traffic from both sides very gracefully. Above Hutchinson Island, one may sometimes see a Magnificent Frigatebird and an occasional Gannet over the ocean. The beach road east is productive of both land and water birds. Return over the bridges, to AlA east and then continue through Port Salerno. Bald Eagles nest in this area. The Inland Waterway east of the St. Lucie River has Wood Stork, White Ibis, and the Louisiana Heron. One or more Common Loons winter in the river. In Port Salerno, Cattle Egrets are common along the highway, and in the first mile or two south of the town limits Scrub Jays are numerous in the scrubby brush on the right side of the road.

“sasrai-Movement” & Pope’s “bold cultural revolution”

Pope Francis says the world urgently needs a “bold cultural revolution” to tackle the looming challenge of catastrophic climate change while addressing the needs of the poor. In a much-anticipated, 184-page encyclical, the reformist Pope endorsed the scientific consensus that humankind is causing a dramatic shift in the world’s climate, which will have the greatest impact on the world’s poor. But he rejected the notion that market mechanisms or technological approaches alone can provide the solution.

 

Since 2004 “sasrai-Movement” appeals `We must get each child caring to each particle of food and resources. Combat the Climate Change, Global Warming, Poverty, Hunger, Disaster, Ensure Peace, Justice, Dignity and Rights for Each - save a bit, reserve, preserve, rejuvenate and conserve resources.’ Unfortunately most of the focus is human biased, but everything on this planet is symbiotically connected - plants, animals, humans and the Earth itself. We are in need of far sighted Goal & Target.

TOP: Tlie Diadema sea urchin is a key player in keeping coral reefs healthy. MIDDLE: Elkhorn coral survival will get help from a Sea Grant research project. BOTTOM: Alina Sztnant hopes her two- pronged project will restore sea urchins and corals. A two-front tactic For a major research initiative by the National Sea Grant College Program, Szmant has mapped out a novel, ecological approach for restoring coral reef habitat in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Her plan is not simple. But if all goes well, it could become a model for reef recovery. "Corals and sea urchins are two parts of the same story," she says, explaining her two-front tactic. First, the research team is developing methods to culture large numbers of coral larvae for reseeding damaged or degraded reef areas. They are concentrating on star corals, Montastraea spp. and branching elkhorn corals, Acropora palmata — both reef-building species. This phase of the project builds on Szmant's earlier research predicting spawning times, collecting spawn, and culturing the larvae for smaller scale laboratory and field experiments. Second, they are attempting to restore a population of the sea urchin Diadema antillarum. Its dramatic die-off in 1983 may have helped tip the ecological balance of the coral reef communities in the Western Atlantic and Caribbean. Without the herbivorous Diadema, coral reefs in the region gradually became smothered by fleshy algae and thick turfs. The researchers are developing a mariculture system to rear large numbers of Diadema for release in the designated sanctuary restoration site. They predict that restoring sea urchin populations will help create clean reef surfaces that are capable of supporting the cultured coral larvae. With the fleshy algae and turf held in check, the scientists also hope to see the return of other keystone members of the coral reef ecosystem. Coral reef habitats are complex, interrelated marine communities. Reefs are built up by layers of calcium carbonate — the accumulated skeletons of billions of soft- bodied sea animals called coral polyps. Inside the living coral polyps, zooxan- thellae — "good algae" — provide oxygen

Work was completed at Mains of Branshogle in Stirlingshire to extend and remodel two existing farm cottages. The project required a strong ecological approach. To take advantage of passive solar gain and to use the massive stone external walls as a heat sink, a sun porch runs the entire length of the south elevation. The thermal mass potential of the existing perimeter walls has been exploited by insulating the masonry on the outside face, using sheep's wool quilt overlaid with reed lath and finished with soft lime plaster, thereby retaining internally-generated heat within the building fabric.

 

A new extension was constructed on the footprint of a derelict barn which was used as a source of salvaged stone to create the plinth courses of the new structure. The main frame of the extension is a pegged green oak assembly using locally felled timbers, infilled with a "breathing wall" construction made up of heavily insulated timber panels, externally clad with untreated larch boarding and lined internally with unfired clay bricks. This reverses the "conventional" timber frame construction creating more thermal mass on the inside of the structure. Solar panels and a wood burning stove provide heat to the underfloor and radiator heating systems.

 

With the help of volunteers, a straw bale donkey house and garage were constructed. These were finished with lime harling and limewash to match the main house, and a sedum blanket roof to marry it to the landscape.

The visitors may operate them so that a continuous mechanical “ballet” can be performed. The edge of the square is redrawn with water to denote a transition in a monumental way.

This boundary simultaneously creates a link with the consolidated urban language of sacred spaces .

The key is to transform the overtly empty space of the square into a dynamic hibrid framework.

By adopting a more ecological approach to urban space strategies we propose a system that allows light to pass or not, changing the perception of the square in some of his points, which creates a mist / rain can reduce dust smog thus creating an area of the city that "produces" clean air .

Estuaries provide a nurturing environment for 90 percent of all commercially important shellfish and finfish. dealing with estuarine shoreline develop- ment. Riggs will produce the first in the series, incorporating the original data as well as new research findings. Subsequent guidebooks will deal with policy and mitigation methods. Walter Clark, Sea Grant coastal policy specialist, and Spencer Rogers, Sea Grant coastal erosion and construction specialist, will contribute to the series. W 'hereas studies of single species, single chemical processes, single geological features and single processes of a physical nature have been useful and often rigorous, the behavior of an estuary depends on the total interaction of all the chemical cycles, water circulations and species behaviors. When the Albemarle-Pamlico sound system was designated an "Estuary of Concern" in 1988, a team of Sea Grant researchers was dispatched to find solutions for the ailing system. Skaggs and Gilliam would investigate how land uses in the watershed affect estuarine water quality. NC State's Ed Noga would look at a disease suspected of causing a four-year decline in blue crab populations, and Walter Clark would develop a pilot program that would serve as a model for managing multiple uses of public trust waters. Len Pietrafesa and colleagues from NC State's Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, would be part of the multidisciplinary effort. Pietrafesa, would lead landmark studies of the circulation patterns of the Albemarle and Pamlico sounds — their links to each other and to surrounding bodies of water. He began looking at the sounds and the narrow inlets between barrier islands that funnel water in and out of the estuary. The central coast, he says, is uniquely situated relative to both winter northeasters and summer tropical storms. "It's the center of mass for winter storms, and the point where tropical storms can re-intensify or even spawn." The estuaries and coastal systems have learned to deal with storms, he says. But often people get in the way of nature. When water and winds build up in the shallow estuary basins, the winds punch the water through the narrow inlets into the coastal waters. Pietrafesa explains that during a Nor'easter, when the wind blows down the axis of the Pamlico Sound from NE to SW, the system sets up like a teeter-totter with the fulcrum at Bluff Shoals. The strong northeast wind pushes water southward allowing rivers to drain quickly. As winds shift to the southwest, the water is pushed in the opposite direction. But it's an ill wind that doesn't blow some good. The same ocean surges that may wash over barrier islands — claiming dunes, buildings and roadways — also carry fish larvae from the ocean waters into the sound side of the barrier islands. On the backside of the storm, Pietrafesa notes, winds from the west push water to the backside of the barrier island. Larvae enter the estuary in heavier sea water, which sinks to the bottom of the water column as wind-driven freshwater enters the system from the west. As the storm subsides and winds shift, the larvae are pushed west safely into the estuary's nursery. Hurricanes also can mean unusual nurseries of juvenile blue crabs. Recent studies by Sea Grant researcher Dave Eggleston concluded that hurricane winds drive juvenile blue crabs toward the western shore of the Pamlico Sound and into the Croatan, Albemarle and Currituck sounds. l/i the ecological approach to environmen- tal systems, man's role is considered as an integral part of nature. What's a salt marsh without egrets and ibises? Not much says James Parnell, nationally renowned ornithologist at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Parnell has devoted much of his research career to studying the habits of colonial water birds. It was Parnell who first realized the importance of man-made dredge spoil islands that dot the state's estuaries. These islands have provided nesting habitats for large colonies of water birds, most of which used to nest along once undeveloped beachfront. Sea Grant funded his first water bird census, the atlas resulting from the census, subsequent publication evaluations and numerous publications about avian management. Scientists and resource managers say the birds are important to the coastal food chain and are indicators of environmental quality. They say that waterbirds are so vital to our coastal ecosystem that manage- ment of their nesting and feeding habitat is necessary. Parnell's later work, The 1993 Atlas of Colonial Waterbirds of North Carolina Estuaries and 7990 Management of North Carolina's Colonial Waterbirds — both published by North Carolina Sea Grant — are considered the ultimate management guides. \an receives from the bay system and its components the yield of aesthetic recreational restoration, foods, services in processing wastes, and other profits. If we draw on these systems without returning some exchange of special value to the estuary, we cause the aspects in which we are expecting continued yield to be diminished. At the portal of the 21st century, North Carolina Sea Grant remains committed to supporting research and extension activities to underwrite an estuarine policy that balances a mutually sustainable give and take of nature and society, n 30 HIGH SEASON 2001

Figure 3. Re-examination of 77 previous designations based upon updated status reports. The arrows indi- cate confirmation or reassignment of status. The integers indicate the number of redesignations or confirmations. determination of status in Canada. A species whose northern distribution barely extends into Canada, a "peripheral species", is assessed solely on status in Canada regardless of whether the species is at-risk or secure in the United States. The international border transects the northern tip of several major ecosystems, most notably the Carolinian Forest of southwestern Ontario, the shortgrass prairie of southwestern Saskatchewan /southeastern Alberta, and the xeric Okanagan of south-central British Columbia. Canada's list of species at risk is heavily weighted to peripheral species confined to these three ecosystems. COSEWIC has been unable to objectively determine which of the previously list- ed species might be considered as peripherals, but the best estimates of the Subcommittee Chairs are that about 40% of birds and 33% of terrestrial mammal designations might be considered periph- eral species (R. James [R.R. #3, Sunderland, Ontario LOC IHO] and D. Nagorsen [Royal British Columbia Museum, 675 Belleville Street, Victoria, British Columbia V8W 9W2], personal communi- cation 1996). Designations of peripheral species demonstrably secure in the U.S. might be criticised as being bio- logically trivial, as conveying the public impression of a deeper endangered species crisis than actually exists, and in diverting attention and resources from the recovery of higher priority species. However, COSEWIC has considered designation of peripher- al species as consistent with its mandate of provid- ing objective, science-based assessment of species occurring in Canada and that it is the role of RENEW and management agencies to undertake the appropriate recovery action. The recovery plan may recommend that no action be taken but at least the designation ensures that this decision is based on reasoned choice rather than simple neglect. Subspecies Traditionally, subspecies (or races and varieties) are commonly differentiated on the basis of mor- phometric measures with overlapping statistical distributions and subjective criteria such as colour. The recent development of molecular techniques rarely clarifies subspecies identity. Consequently, subspecific taxonomy is often controversial and individuals are often not assignable unequivocally to a particular subspecies. Therefore, COSEWIC has annotated its subspecies designations with a geographic description thereby describing an unmistakable collectivity defined by a line on a map. This has sometimes resulted in confusion as to whether a population or the subspecies has been designated. Populations COSEWIC s mandate includes responsibility to designate risk status to populations that are of national significance. The Committee has struggled with establishing procedures for determining which of a species' potentially numerous populations are of national significance and therefore eligible for designation. The challenge is to establish consistent rules for delineating populations and for establish- ing whether they are nationally significant. To date, COSEWIC has not adopted a set of rules that satis- factorily encompass the broad diversity of natural situations arising while continuing to make biologi- cal and intuitive sense. Consequently, the set of populations COSEWIC has designated has there- fore been ad hoc and inconsistent. COSEWIC has been considering an ecological approach to estab- lishing national significance of populations. Non- marine environments have been divided into eight "National Ecological Areas" (Figure 4) each of which has the capability of harbouring a "nationally significant population". The concept is based on the presumed significance of behavioural and genetic adaptations to regional conditions. In practice, the ecological approach to population significance has been problematic because of difficulties in forcing complex and dynamic population structures into consistent "pigeon-holes".

In Togo, there is a difficult situation for water, food production and income generation in the rural areas and women are the most affected. Charité Chrétienne pour Personnes en Détresse, a non-profit organization, founded by Pastor Yawo Agbeko Tsevi, is working to improve access to clean water and safe sanitation, by adopting the ecological approach to show the links between sanitation and agriculture. The project provides women with training in urine collection, treatment and reuse to grow vegetables. With the materials given to them, women collect, store and transport the urine converted into fertilizer, while developing a demonstration field where they learn about the application of urine to fertilize crop. Crops cultivated with urine yield four to five times. With an increase in crop production, women and their familles benefit in improved food security and increased incomes.
