Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Mongabay founder Rhett A.

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting While doing some research for a work project I’m doing currently, I came acrossthis illuminating PEW report from January 2005, called Internet Evolution: Adecade of adoption: How the internet has woven itself into American life. Thefollowing extract is from the introduction, entitled ‘Internet: The Mainstreaming ofOnline Life’. Here it is, with one comment in italic inserted by me:“The New NormalThe Web has become the “new normal” in the American way of life; those whodon’t go online constitute an ever-shrinking minority. And as the online populationhas grown rapidly, its composition has changed rapidly. At the infant stage, theinternet’s user population was dominated by young, white men who had high incomesand plenty of education [RM: not unlike the make-up of the Web 2.0 Conferenceattendees]. As it passed into its childhood years in 1999 and 2000, thepopulation went mainstream; women reached parity with men online, lots more minorityfamilies joined the party, and more people with modest levels of income and educationcame online.This transition altered the internet’s social environment. These early adoptersloved the liberation they got from being online. They liked the fact that they could getnews from nontraditional sources. Back in 1996, 56% of those who got political newsonline said they preferred the internet because they could get extra information that wasnot available from traditional news sources. At the same time, just 18% said theypreferred the internet because it was convenient. These early adopters wanted to toppleall manner of institutions and establish a new order in virtual space. They had a utopiansense of the transformative power of the new technology.The later adopters are not looking to this technology to overturn the existing order.They like the internet because it can make them more productive and more connected.Theirs is an unsentimental outlook. Like most later adopters of technology, they need tobe shown that there is a real, immediate and practical value in embracing the new.”What do I take from this?1) Web 2.0 is still in the 1996 era in terms of Internet take-up;2) perhaps some of us Web 2.0 pundits have been guilty of focusing too much on “utopian sense of the transformative power of the new technology”; aka the Bubblementality.3) the tipping point will be when Web 2.0 becomes convenient and practical for mainstream people touse – making them “more productive and more connected”. We’re still a year or two awayfrom that point, I think.It’s an excellent report to read and atimely reminder to us all of the context of Web 2.0, within the ongoing evolution of theInternet.center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#web#Web Culture A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

first_img Share Photo: Mayor Sylvester Turner via Twitter / @SylvesterTurnerHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner (center) held a press conference on June 1, 2018, because of the beginning of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season to remind Houstonians to be prepared.The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season started Friday and Mayor Sylvester Turner encouraged Houstonians to be prepared by getting supplies and informed by monitoring news sources, and make plans in case an emergency happens.Turner held a press conference at City Hall and noted that Houstonians are now “wiser and stronger,” but emphasized that the public must remember that all tropical storms and hurricanes are different. “One can be a wind event and another can be a rain event, and a rain event may drop water in places different from last time.”“So, just in case,” the Mayor added “people that didn’t flood from (Hurricane) Harvey last time, doesn’t mean that you are immune from flooding, OK?, cause mother nature has its own way of moving, we can’t control that.”Turner recommended to buy supplies ahead of time and make a disaster kit. There are suggestions on how to do that at the website for the City’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM).Touching on how Houston has improved its preparation looking forward to the new hurricane season, Houston Fire Department (HFD) Samuel Peña noted that his department now has almost double the number of evacuation boats compared to last year and also has more trained personnel, as well as more high-water vehicles, which can also be crucial to carry out search and rescue operations in flooded areas.Peña commented that people who own generators must make sure they are in good condition and underscored that they should be placed at a distance of at least 20 feet from the home because of the emission of carbon monoxide, which is poisonous.Additionally, the City of Houston is participating in the STEAR program –which can help people if they need to be evacuated during emergencies or natural disasters, such as hurricanes— and local officials are encouraging residents to sign up, which can be done by calling 211 or by visiting the program’s website.Media Availability: #HurricaneSeason preparedness https://t.co/Ii7zTnsWtA— Sylvester Turner (@SylvesterTurner) June 1, 2018Disaster Preparedness Guide:last_img read more
