Neodymium Is In Demand And China Controls Its Supply
Powerful magnets are necessary for an iPhone to vibrate or a Tesla Model 3's motor to spin. If you combine neodymium with iron and boron, you can make a neodymium-iron-boron magnet, which is the most powerful type of permanent magnet ever created. And demand for these magnets is on the rise. But 80 percent of the world's neodymium comes from China. You may not have heard of neodymium, but you're probably carrying some of it around with you right now. It's in your cellphone, your headphones and you might be driving several pounds of it around in your car. Neodymium — pronounced "nee-oh-DIM-ee-um" — is one of 17 chemically similar elements called rare earth elements, and demand for this metal is on the rise. "Neodymium is responsible for most, if not all, of the growth in rare earth demand at the moment," said Roderick Eggert, deputy director of the Critical Materials Institute at Colorado School of Mines. For an iPhone to vibrate, for AirPods to play music, for wind turbines to generate power and for a Toyota Prius or Tesla Model 3's motor to spin, they need powerful magnets. If you combine neodymium with iron and boron, you can make a neodymium-iron-boron magnet, which is the most powerful type of permanent magnet ever created. In the case of your cellphone and earbuds, using neodymium magnets means they can be physically tiny but still strong. For motors, using permanent magnets means powerful, efficient motors with fewer electromagnetic components. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

How Does Mining Affect the Environment? You'll Be Shocked to Know
Find more effects of mining right here: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/how-does-mining-affect-the-environment.html Mining is the source of all the substances that cannot be obtained by industrial processes or through agriculture. Mining reaps huge profits for the companies that own them and provides employment to a large number of people. It is also a huge source of revenue for the government. Despite its economic importance, the effects of mining on the environment is a pressing issue. Mining activities require the clearing of large areas of land. The chemicals used in the mining process often escape into the environment causing pollution. Watch this video to know how mining affects the environment.

Deep-sea mining: vital resource or environmental disaster?
Surging demand for the metals used in electric car batteries is setting off a race to mine the deep seas. As the FT’s Henry Sanderson explains, the sea floor could contain more nickel, cobalt and rare earth metals than all land-based reserves combined. Miners say it may diversify supply, but environmentalists fear mining will do irreparable damage. Visit https://www.lombardodier.com/FTRethink for more #FTRethink #deepseamining

The New Conquistadors: Canadian Mining Companies Battle for Panama's Natural Resources
Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/panama-canada-gold-copper-mining-protests-environmental-destruction "The New Conquistadors," a documentary produced through a collaboration between the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the CBC News, explores the battle between the Canadian companies and local communities in Panama. As Canadian mining companies seek to expand their presence in Central America, some Panama's indigenous peoples and peasant farmers worry that the mining could lead to deforestation, polluted water supply and the displacement of local communities—including the Ngobe people, Panama's largest indigenous group. The plan to unearth billions of dollars worth of precious metals is a boon for these Panamanian communities, according to the mining companies; they bring jobs and economic development to the developing countries. But for the peasant farmers and indigenous peoples, the rewards aren't worth sacrificing the environment. "The New Conquistadors" will air on CBC on June 18, 2012. This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Panama: The Canadian Conquistadors" (http://bit.ly/Kj4Qnm).

TOP 10 Accidents In Metal Industry
10 Accidents In Metal Industry! This Video talks about different kinds of risks that is associated in metal industry. So. that we can aware you about safety instructions. As you know safety of workers or individuals are primary concern for TTI. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ # 10 Slag Explosions Slag or metal waste is the waste material that remains after Ore-Purification. And that won't be used in the metal processing. Generally when metal impurities mix with water, for instance, a big explosion may occur. #9 Electric Arc Furnaces The electric arc furnaces have been substituting traditional furnaces in many steel plants worldwide. #8 Boiler Explosion Boilers are very important in the metal industry. They are defined as a closed pressure vessel where a fluid is heated by applying the resulting heat externally. #7 Fires One of the hazards to be considered in the metal industry is fire. Fire increases the possibilities for accidents to occur. #6 Moisture Water entry or just simple moisture in the boiler can produce bad results that could put at risk the worker’s live in the metal industry. #5 Slag Dumping We cannot consider the slag dumping as an accident, but the consequences of this action can be very negative. Slag or waste originate from ore smelting to purify metals. #4 Steel Casting ladle break Broadly speaking, the steel casting ladle is a tool used in the metal refining and casting. it is used to transport and pour the red hot metal. They are made of steel and have a refractory lining to withstand high temperatures. #3 Molten Metal Splashes One of the most common risks in metal smelting are the splashes of molten metal. It is in fact one of the points for risk prevention. #2 Eruptions in Metal Casting Centres A very risky event is the metal casting process. This process consists of pouring the smelted metal into a cast for it to become solid. #1 Fire Loops or Cobble this kind of accident can be lethal for workers who are near. The temperature of this kind of molten metal loops is extremely high. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FOLLOW TOP 10 INFORMATION-TTI Facebook Page:- MESSEGE ME https://www.facebook.com/top10informationssss/?fref=ts Google Plus:-https://plus.google.com/+TOP10INFORMATION10 Twitter:-https://twitter.com/TopTenInfor SUBSCRIBE:-https://goo.gl/F6pHMw INSTAGRAM https://www.instagram.com/top_10_information/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONTACT Me for Copyright Related issues, Credit addition and deletion: we will solve your issue within few hours https://www.facebook.com/top10informationssss/

Urban Mining - Gold in our trash - VPRO documentary - 2015
Our waste is worth money. Recovering it has started up a new global industry worth billions. It is called Urban Mining and it appears to be the solution for many of our environmental problems and our energy needs. And it is hot. A ton of broken mobile phones, computers or other electronic waste contains sixty times the amount of gold a ton of gold ore has. Moreover, it is easier to get at. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of total world demand for rare metals can be covered by urban mining and this is only the beginning. Urban Mining has a different, almost hilarious consequence: for years we have dumped our electronic waste in developing countries, with our eyes closed. There, it was to be recycled. But in Africa only one quarter of the gold, platinum and coltan is recovered whereas the newest technology in Belgium recovers almost 99 percent. So somewhere there’s a profit to be made. The NGO ‘Closing the Loop’ is buying up dead mobile phones and computer parts that we have dumped in developing countries making our waste a desirable sales item over there.

Rethinking Water Challenges in China with Hongqiao Liu
China’s economic miracle has come at a heavy environmental price, and policy makers are only beginning to respond in earnest. While China’s leaders tackle the country’s smog problems, non-gaseous pollutants are a mounting environmental and public health threat. Unsafe drinking water is pumped into millions of homes every day, and under-regulated rare earth metals mining has rendered whole villages uninhabitable. Widespread awareness of urban and rural water pollution has fueled a boom in China’s bottled water industry, currently growing twice as fast as the country’s GDP. Bottled water is not however, a sustainable replacement for clean tap water; lack of oversight at treatment facilities does not guarantee its safety for consumption, and massive amounts of plastic waste is generated. Meanwhile, the extraction and processing of rare earth metals, in which China accounts for 85% of global production, is wreaking environmental havoc in surrounding districts. Though critical to many modern technology industries, through chemical waste and the unearthing of radioactive substances, rare earth metals mining has created “cancer villages,” contaminated drinking water and agricultural produce, and is now endangering the Yellow River. Hongqiao Liu is an environmental researcher and award winning journalist who focuses on balancing economic and environmental imperatives. In her recent research, Ms. Liu has examined the alarming effects of water pollution and rare earth metals mining in China, and investigated the obstacles to regulatory reform. Ms. Liu discussed her findings with the National Committee on November 7, 2016, in New York City. Bio: Hongqiao Liu has worked as both an environmental researcher and journalist at some of China’s most influential media outlets: Southern Metropolis Daily and Caixin Media. Her reporting ranges from social and civic issues and environmental crime to emerging environment-related health challenges in China. Her reporting has raised heated public debate within China, and inspired policy change at the national level. Ms. Liu is currently a consultant for China Water Risk (CWR), a think tank focused on addressing business and environmental risk arising from China’s limited water resources. At CWR, she has expanded her previous investigations into reports that explore China’s challenges in safeguarding its drinking water sources. Ms. Liu’s work at CWR includes China’s Long March Towards Safe Drinking Water, Bottled Water in China: Boom or Bust?, and Rare Earths: Shades of Grey – Can China Continue to Fuel our Clean and Smart Future? These reports have been widely cited in policy papers released by China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection, Caixin, HSBC, and Moody’s Research. Issues raised by Ms. Liu were also picked up by global and local media such as The Guardian, The Economist, China Daily, Xinhua, and Phoenix Weekly, among others. Ms. Liu is a regular contributing author to the Green Book of Environment: The Annual Report on Environment Development of China. She also works closely with China Dialogue’s “Third Pole” and Internews’ Earth Journalism Network to expand the role of environmental journalism in Chinese media. Ahead of COP21, Liu was a judge in UNDP’s annual “Climate Change Storytelling Contest” and in Paris, she sat on a panel to discuss green growth along with The Economist’s senior editor at “Earth to Paris” hosted by the United Nations Foundation. Outside China, Ms. Liu has explored new approaches to covering transnational wildlife crime. She worked closely with the China-Africa Reporting Project of Witwatersrand University and the Forum for African Investigative Reporters to develop a GIS-based database on rhinoceros poaching and trafficking. Speaking at the African Investigative Journalists Annual Conference in 2014, Ms. Liu introduced China’s perspectives on wildlife crime to help facilitate a global approach toward preventing the trade. Her collaboration with the Oxpeckers Center of Environmental Investigative Journalism, an African journalism initiative, continues today. Ms. Liu attended from Beijing Normal University on a national journalism scholarship, and graduated with a bachelor in communications. She holds the record as the youngest recipient of many journalism awards and fellowships on environmental and science journalism from Chinese and international media associations.

Rare-Earth Minerals Creates a Permanent Solution for Poor Indoor Air Quality & Pet Odors
Years of research and testing have found that a blend of naturally-occurring minerals has created a new product that possesses unique electrical properties. Air-ReNu, produces a small electronic field, consisting primarily of electrons. These airborne electrons ionize the suspended gases and liquid cation molecules that carry the toxins and odors, turning them into anions. The anions are the first steps in the antimicrobial process and the basis for which commercial Ionizers and ozone generators have been sold for years. Air-ReNu, only has to be applied one time, creating a permanent solution to poor indoor air quality and the elimination of odors within the home or office.

The Mining and Smelting of Canadian Nickel / Coniston ,Ontario
This historical silent film documents the entire mining process as it was done in the 1930s. The Village of Coniston experienced a rapid and large growth spurt when in 1913, the Mond Nickel Company moved its smelting operations from Victoria Mine (a small mining community located west of Sudbury) to Coniston. Prior to 1913, the Mond Nickel Company had been operating in Victoria Mine for thirteen years. When the company could no longer expand its mining operations in the area, it chose to relocate to Coniston for two important reasons: firstly, because the land in Coniston was adequate for the company's purposes, and most importantly, because the community had railway junctions for two different railway companies within its townsite. This factor would enable the Mond Nickel Company to ship its mined ore from the Sudbury Basin to Coniston for smelting and from there, send the processed minerals to Clydach, Wales for refining, all with little fuss.

ENTRE CIEL ET TERRE - La Palma in 4K astrolapse
There are only a few regions in the world where the skies meet the Earth with almost no distinction between the two. La Palma in the Canary islands is one of them. ‘Entre Ciel et Terre’ literally means ‘Between the sky and Earth’ and was a perfect fit here. While most of the volcanic island is isolated under a thick layer of clouds, the tip of its crater often punches through it and allows you to be one step closer to the Heavens. At an altitude of about 2300 meters above sea level you feel so far removed from any kind of civilization especially because of the cloud inversion. The air is thin and pristine and the living conditions are harsh but that’s the reason why the ORM (Observatory Roque de Los Muchachos) -operated by the IAC (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias) and part of the European Northern Observatory, was built up there. The summit of La Palma’s caldera benefits from dry and clear skies almost year round with almost no light pollution to disturb it, and only rare Calima (this dusty wind coming from the Sahara desert). It’s safe to say that the ‘Isla Bonita’ is one of the top places in the world to observe the northern hemisphere’s night sky! The purpose of this short was to capture that special place from a different perspective. I really wanted to give the audience sort of a confusion as to where they are because that’s precisely the feeling you get when you look up at the stars from the mountains. You somehow lose sense of any orientation as if you were lost in the immensity of the universe! One image that I had in my head to describe La Palma’s summit was Asgard or Mount Olympus, where all the elements are united and blend together divinely. Even life found a way to survive in this environment bombarded by high-energy rays during the day and battered by cold winds at night. One highlighted species is the fascinating and mind-boggling Tajinaste flower. Also called Tenerife Bugloss or tower of jewels, this docile and resilient endemic plant can endure extreme drought. I included it in the movie because it looks majestic and prehistoric. It really adds something special to the special atmosphere I wanted to convey, especially when the milky way galaxy and the sea of clouds move in the background! By tracking the night sky or displaying the sequences upside-down I was able to give that impression of the Earth floating and rotating in the void of the cosmos. The unusual but innovative close-up views of some parts of the milky way (including the core, Rho Ophiuchi or Cygnus) moving behind the operating telescopes of the OMC helped me give that only human dimension to the movie. The use of an astro-modified camera also enabled me to almost get the full range of colors a DSLR can pick up on single frames from nebulae. I already traveled to La Palma island in November 2017 but I really wanted to shoot there again for several reasons. First I really wanted to get more shots of the core region that would be less spoiled by light pollution than the ones I recently took on Tenerife. Secondly I desperately wanted to meet the extremely talented photographer Alyn Wallace (check him out: alynwallacephotography.com) and do a collaboration with him on the island. Thirdly I am still on my way of perfecting the novel art of deep-sky time-lapse and I wanted to reshoot some sequences that didn’t give satisfying results in the past. Finally I wanted to personally experience the Spring vibe of the island when all the plants are blooming and give that sweet smell to the air. I am absolutely thrilled to have met all my expectations (and more!), and I really believe the results look stunning! Everything was recorded with the Canon 6D Baader modified, the Sony a7s, the Sony a7rII and a variety of bright lenses ranging from 14mm to 300mm. I used the Lonely Speck Pure Night and Matt Aust Light pollution filters to reduce light pollution and increase details, and also the Vixen Polarie to track the stars and get cleaner shots. Syrp Genie 3 axis system was used for motion control. All post production was made in Lr with the special timelapse plus plugin, Sequence for mac, TLDF, and final production was made in FCPX. I hope you like the movie as much as I liked shooting and processing it and I thank everyone of you for your support.

Nuclear Energy kya hai? Uranium kya hota hai? Aur kaise iss se bijlee paida hotee hain? Duniya mein log iss technology se itna kyon darte hain? Lekin phir bhee iss se electricity paida karte hain? kya is’kee vajah Japan ke do shehar, Hiroshima aur Nagasaki hai? Ya 2011 mein hua “Fukushima Nuclear Disaster hai”?

Subscribe to our channel here: https://goo.gl/XTRf92 ------------------------------ Do you Know How is Nuclear Electricity/Energy Produced ? Uranium is the naturally used fuel for producing Nuclear Power or Electricity. It isn’t rare and is found around the world. And is mostly mined from Australia, Canada and Kazakhstan. Once mined, the raw uranium ore is then ‘enriched’, which simply means it’s prepared for use as a fuel for Nuclear power stations. A kilogram of Uranium is capable of producing as much power as 2500 Tonne of coal. A nuclear reactor produces and controls the release of energy from splitting the atoms of uranium. Uranium-fuelled nuclear power is a clean and efficient way of boiling water to make steam; which drives turbine generators. Nuclear energy supplies about 10% of the world's electricity. Today 31 countries use nuclear energy to generate electricity for their rising demand.

Thorium 2017
Thorium is an abundant material currently disposed of as waste. It is found in coal ash piles and mine tailings. A single Rare Earths mine could produce enough Thorium byproduct to power the entire planet. To do so requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kinds we use today. Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses extremely stable molten salts. The full description of one such reactor is: 2-Fluid, Thermal-Spectrum, Molten-Salt Breeder Reactor equipped with a chemical fuel salt treatment module. Such a reactor was conceived of decades ago, as documented in the book "Fluid Fuel Reactors" [1958]. Or, simply "LFTR" (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) as proposed by Flibe Energy's Kirk Sorensen... a modern redesign of the 2-Fluid, thermal-spectrum, MSBR concept. http://Flibe-Energy.com/ Since 2011 (the year Flibe Energy was founded), legislators asking questions about Thorium have had their queries answered as if such a reactor design did not exist. NNL [UK] and OECD [NEA] reports on the Thorium Fuel Cycle did not explore the implications of this reactor, and dismiss thorium based on challenges and mediocre performance found in other reactor designs. For example, other options include a "Fast-Spectrum Molten-Salt Reactor". Worth pursuing, certainly, but requires more fissile inventory than LFTR... approximately 5x as much. (Fissile inventory is specifically mentioned as a concern by OECD's thorium report.) And assuming the challenges of a fast-spectrum MSR can be met... both natural Uranium and natural Thorium can both be fully consumed as fuel in a fast-spectrum reactor. That is where Thorium is dismissed as only "4x as common as Uranium" (fast-spectrum usage) rather than "400x as common as U-235" (thermal-spectrum usage). Thorium's advantages: both thermal-spectrum breeding and unique chemical properties, are taken full advantage of only by LFTR style reactors. When evaluated in any other reactor, depending on that reactor, Uranium can be as attractive, more attractive, or Uranium can be the only viable option. For example: Shippingport. Cited as an example of a "Thorium Reactor" by Dr. Lyons, it was NEVER intended to be economical, and features no advantages of LFTR. It was a solid-fuel reactor, and so operated at low-temperature, had no on-line chemical reprocessing, used high-pressure water coolant, used fuel as inefficiently as every other solid-fuel reactor, and had to be shut down every time it was refueled. 2 of its 3 fuel loads were Enriched Uranium. It was -a- Reactor capable of consuming Thorium and demonstrated only that it was possible... it was not -THE- Thorium Reactor. If you'd like to watch a mini-series length (6.5h) documentary on this topic, please check out "Thorium." https://youtu.be/2oK6Rs6yFsM ...it goes into some technical detail on Thorium and Molten Salt Reactors, as well as nuclear power itself.

Nurses Oppose the Keystone XL Pipeline
What is the Keystone XL Pipeline project, and why do nurses oppose it? The Keystone project is a controversial proposal for a nearly 1,700 mile pipeline to send 830,000 barrels 875 miles across the U.S. every day of one of the world's dirtiest fuels, tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to Gulf Coast refineries in Texas. It would double imports of tar sands oil into the U.S. and facilitate its export to international ports. Major oil and other fossil fuel corporations in the U.S. and Canada, joined by other Wall Street interests and the federal and state politicians they influence are promoting the plan. Opponents include every prominent environmental organization, other climate change activists, many farmers, ranchers and community leaders along the path of the proposed pipeline, First Nations leaders, most Canadian unions, and some U.S. unions, including NNU and the Amalgamated Transit Union. The State Department January 31 issued a mixed final environmental assessment report generally viewed as giving a green light for the project. Since the project crosses international borders, the State Department and Secretary of State John Kerry are required to make a recommendation to President Obama, who has the final decision, as to whether the pipeline is in the U.S. national interest. Why does NNU oppose the Keystone XL Pipeline? NNU opposes the Keystone XL Pipeline because of the adverse health and environmental impact associated with extraction, transport and production of tar sands crude, as well as how the emissions will exacerbate climate change which affects public health more broadly. NNU is also concerned about the overall effects of Keystone XL on the long term environmental, economic, and social consequences, the need for promoting a green economy for economic and health purposes, and how approval of the pipeline would further entrench the corrosive power of the fossil fuel industry in distorting U.S. public policies. What are the health risks posed by the Keystone XL pipeline? Extraction Extraction of tar sands oil is far more difficult than conventional oil drilling. The massive amount of water needed to separate the extracted product, bitumen, from sand, oil and silt, is contaminated with toxic substances that cannot be returned to any water source that may end up in human drinking water. Nearly all is dumped in large pools that are home to cyanide, ammonia and other toxic substances which are already infecting neighboring clean water supplies. Communities living downstream from the ponds have seen spikes in rates of rare cancers, renal failure, lupus, and hyperthyroidism. In one small community of just 1,200 residents, 100 have already died from cancer. Canadian scientists also cite mercury pollution generated by tar sands production, citing its adverse impact on fishing and wildlife.

Public hearing for expansion of UCIL's Bhatin mine, Jharkhand
The public hearing for the expansion of Bhatin mines of Uranium Corporation of India Limited (UCIL) was held on May 26, 2011. The public hearing was a clear violation the EIA notification and did not allow stakeholders to participate in the process. CSE representative was there to cover the public hearing but was not allowed inside. Read on to know what ensued: UCIL Public Hearing Around 35 inebriated henchmen of UCIL blocked the Tata-Jadugoda Road near Bhatin Colony to prevent environmentalists, environment activists, NGO workers and mediapersons from attending the Public Hearing scheduled on May 26 for renewal of the mining lease. Mediapersons and activists who protested to the road blockade were threatened with dire consequences. Three havildaars deputed on the spot expressed helplessness in paving way to help people attend the hearing. In the morning, around 9 am, the UCIL management posed nearly 50 women near the Bhatin Colony gate to prohibit undesired entry of the mentioned group of people. Later, with the beginning of the public hearing around 11 am, the group of women was replaced by men. Claiming themselves to be residents of Bhatin village, the people armed with batons and bamboo sticks said they were in favour of renewal of the lease. Clad in villagers' attire, all the road-blockers had one thing in common: a badge with green ribbon mentioning 'UCIL mine karmi'. Being interrogated the reason behind stopping the vehicles, frisking passengers and disallowing mediapersons from attending the public hearing, one of the supporters said, "We are residents of this area. We do not want any kind of outsiders' interference here. We are aware of our needs and rights. So we would like to handle it in our own way." On being stressed to let enter the gate to reach the public hearing site, one Sita Ram Manjhi said, "Anyone who crosses the gate will be responsible for his or her condition. We are politely requesting to go back. Now that we have absolute support of the UCIL management in blocking the road, I do not think police will take notice to the aftermath." One havildaar said, "We are here just to take stock of the situation. If anything happens we will communicate to the higher officials and act accordingly." According to sources, about 1500 people attended the hearing. These were mostly women, children and employees of UCIL at a closed precinct inside the colony where the company received uncontested support for renewal of the lease. Apart from UCIL management, those present were Vijay Kumar, ADC (Law and Order) Jamshedpur, Dr M B Shukla of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, R Chowdhary, regional officer (Jamshedpur), Jharkhand State Pollution Control Board, Jagdish Mahto and RamPravesh Kumar, Environment Engineer, JSPCB, Jamshedpur. Dr Shukla said people should not protest against the lease as the radiations in the area are so less that it cannot harm any person. He categorically said, "The radiation is so less that the traces of radioactive elements found here could be found even in non-uranium mining areas too." Himani Pandey, deputy commissioner of East Singhbhum, said, "I am unaware of the incidence of road blockade. However, I personally do not see any harm in allowing any person from attending the public hearing. Moreover, when the UCIL management and the scientists believe and are sure that there is no harm from radiations, they can easily convince people." At the Bhatin village, men and women who were against the renewal of the mining lease said UCIL had garnered support from other people by promising them work. "This is not the first time they are being fooled. Even a standard V student knows what the consequences of radiation are. This time UCIL has literally 'bought' people by slapping money on their face. Even our village 'pradhan' is in favour of the renewal," said Raghu a young man of Bhatin village. Interestingly, when the photographs of the people blocking the road was shown to the villagers they could not identify any of them. Bhatin Village Panchayat head Khelaram Murmu said, "Its UCIL that ultimately takes care of us. So why to go against them? I would prefer some progress of this area at the cost of uranium mining instead of poverty and joblessness."

GOLD - WikiVidi Documentary
Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au and atomic number 79. In its purest form, it is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, dense, soft, malleable, and ductile metal. Chemically, gold is a transition metal and a group 11 element. It is one of the least reactive chemical elements and is solid under standard conditions. Gold often occurs in free elemental form, as nuggets or grains, in rocks, in veins, and in alluvial deposits. It occurs in a solid solution series with the native element silver and also naturally alloyed with copper and palladium. Less commonly, it occurs in minerals as gold compounds, often with tellurium . Gold is thought to have been produced in supernova nucleosynthesis, from the collision of neutron stars, and to have been present in the dust from which the Solar System formed.

Nature and Life - Episode 221 (Environment Pollution & The Biodiversity)
The rivers, lakes, haors, baors, oceans, forests etc. all are the parts of our environment. All of these are interrelated to maintain the natural balance of the environment. Any change in these harms the environment. Environment pollution is one of the prime reasons behind environmental degradation. In Bangladesh, environment pollution occurs in various ways. Among those, water, air and soil pollution are most notable. Environment pollution is the collective result of all these pollutions. The environment pollution is increasing day by day in our country; The biodiversity is being affected by its adverse impacts. So the environment pollution has been identified as one of the main problems in Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a country of wetlands. Numerous water bodies are spread throughout the country. The traditional view of Bangladesh can’t be imagined without these water bodies. These water bodies are rich with biodiversity. So the lives and livelihoods of Bengali people depend on this to a large extent. Because along with the aquatic plants and invertebrates different species of fish, River Dolphin, Crocodile, Otters are inseparable parts of the aquatic biodiversity. The fishes are vital among those. These living creatures provide us with food and maintain the balance of the environment. But due to water pollution, the water bodies are now threatened, the aquatic biodiversity is on the brink of extinction. Our destructive activities are mostly responsible for this. We are excessively using pesticides and chemical fertilizers to increase agricultural production. These remain free in the nature and then cause water pollution by mixing with rain water. Being stored in the plants these elements are causing diseases in humans and other animals through food. Huge amount of wastes from hospitals and clinics are being dumped into the rivers and lakes. Harmful chemical wastes are being produced from tanneries, textile industries, fertilizer industries and cement factories. Due to inadequate ETP system, these wastes are being dumped in the open places. These non-refined wastes from different industries are getting mixed with water bodies. The polluted water is flowing to the Bay of Bengal through the large rivers. So no water bodies are getting relief from the wastes. As a result, planktons, algae and other aquatic organisms are being harmed. Different species of animals are being threatened due to the change of water density. Once widely available River Dolphins have now become rare in the large rivers of the country. The indigenous fish species are in the most critical condition. Because of water pollution the eggs never transform into full grown fish. Apart from this other aquatic animals are getting diseased for polluted water. The bird species dependent on water are also being threatened. The amphibians and reptiles are also victims of water pollution. Because most of the time of their life cycle they are dependent on water. The Bay of Bengal is also not pollution free due to oil and plastics; The marine turtles, corals and coastal birds are going to be extinct. The upper layer of the ground is important for the growth of plants. The natural balance of this layer is being affected due to gradual accumulation of solid wastes. So the invertebrates living in the ground are decreasing. The plant diversity in the infertile soil is reducing and so is the agricultural production. Fresh air is the indicator of a healthy environment. But carbon monoxide, silicon and other smaller particles in the smoke emitted from industries, brick fields etc. are getting mixed with air and polluting the environment. As a result, the biodiversity is facing severe threats. Apart from this, due to increase of CO2 the world’s temperature is also increasing which is accelerating the climate change. So the coastal biodiversity is going extinct. A healthy environment is now a necessity. We all have to come forward as soon as possible. Proper utilizing of modern technology has to be ensured to resist environment pollution. Recycling process can play vital role in this regard. Industrial pollution can be reduced by proper use of ETP. Beside this, we can participate in environment conservation by not dumping the wastes here and there. Above all, environment pollution can be reduced by enforcing the laws against the polluters. Only then our environment as well as the biodiversity will sustain.

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT TOP 10 COUNTRIES IN TECHNOLOGY. #ADVANCEDTECHNOLOGYCOUNTRIES #TECHNOLOGYCOUNTRIES #JAPANTECHNOLOGY Technology ("science of craft", from Greek τέχνη, techne, "art, skill, cunning of hand"; and -λογία, -logia[2]) is the collection of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines to allow for operation without detailed knowledge of their workings. The simplest form of technology is the development and use of basic tools. The prehistoric discovery of how to control fire and the later Neolithic Revolution increased the available sources of food, and the invention of the wheel helped humans to travel in and control their environment. Developments in historic times, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. Technology has many effects. It has helped develop more advanced economies (including today's global economy) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products known as pollution and deplete natural resources to the detriment of Earth's environment. Innovations have always influenced the values of a society and raised new questions of the ethics of technology. Examples include the rise of the notion of efficiency in terms of human productivity, and the challenges of bioethics. Philosophical debates have arisen over the use of technology, with disagreements over whether technology improves the human condition or worsens it. Neo-Luddism, anarcho-primitivism, and similar reactionary movements criticize the pervasiveness of technology, arguing that it harms the environment and alienates people; proponents of ideologies such as transhumanism and techno-progressivism view continued technological progress as beneficial to society and the human condition. The use of the term "technology" has changed significantly over the last 200 years. Before the 20th century, the term was uncommon in English, and it was used either to refer to the description or study of the useful arts[3] or to allude to technical education, as in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (chartered in 1861).[4] The term "technology" rose to prominence in the 20th century in connection with the Second Industrial Revolution. The term's meanings changed in the early 20th century when American social scientists, beginning with Thorstein Veblen, translated ideas from the German concept of Technik into "technology." In German and other European languages, a distinction exists between technik and technologie that is absent in English, which usually translates both terms as "technology." By the 1930s, "technology" referred not only to the study of the industrial arts but to the industrial arts themselves.[5] In 1937, the American sociologist Read Bain wrote that "technology includes all tools, machines, utensils, weapons, instruments, housing, clothing, communicating and transporting devices and the skills by which we produce and use them."[6] Bain's definition remains common among scholars today, especially social scientists. Scientists and engineers usually prefer to define technology as applied science, rather than as the things that people make and use.[7] More recently, scholars have borrowed from European philosophers of "technique" to extend the meaning of technology to various forms of instrumental reason, as in Foucault's work on technologies of the self (techniques de soi).

Lifton on Lithium: “It’s got to go higher.”
“This is going to be a very good period for lithium-ion batteries.” – Jack Lifton January 11, 2016 — In a special InvestorIntel interview, Publisher Tracy Weslosky speaks with Jack Lifton, Sr. Editor for InvestorIntel about the increasing interest from the market on lithium-ion batteries. Jack goes on to explain that the real driver for the demand for lithium is going to be once again - China. Having recently visited the largest lithium ion battery recycler, Jack explains that there is no supply chain. And then discusses how the Chinese push for lithium ion batteries will impact our markets, including an increased interest in titanium. Tracy Weslosky: Jack there’s a lot of buzz on lithium-ion batteries on InvestorIntel. Can you tell us what the catalyst for this is? Jack Lifton: Yeah. What’s happening is that the American carmakers are finally stepping up to the mass production of lithium-ion battery powered electric cars. GM, the Detroit intergalactic auto show starts, I guess, in the next couple of days. We still call it international even though nobody else does. GM is introducing the Chevrolet Volt, its 200-mile range electric car, which goes on sale this year, at the end of the year as a 2017 for $30,000 including your government kickback on tax breaks. It’s really cheap and it’s good timing for them in the market because Tesla is having a problem bringing their low-cost car into production. Ford’s got a huge program, which at the Consumer Electronics Show the other day in Las Vegas their current President, Mark Fields announced a huge electrification program and self-driving cars and all that stuff. On top of that the Chinese 5-year plan coming out in March for the next 5-years mandates a switch to electric propulsion for cars to reduce pollution in the large cities. The Chinese are actually targeting 5 million units a year by 2020. Now these are the drivers for the interest in lithium-ion batteries. That’s what’s going on here these very largescale applications. At the very least you’re looking at millions of cars being made by the end of this decade using lithium-ion batteries. I know that the companies here in Detroit, we have several lithium-ion battery companies, are very active right now. Now to contrast this or on the other side of the coin, the national newspapers, like the Washington Post, are saying, well, the electric car is another flop, it didn’t work and all that. What I found in my life is that whenever the national newspapers say something isn’t happening, it’s for sure happening. If they say tomorrow’s weather is great, I’m getting my overcoat. They’re always wrong and they’re consistent in that. I think that this is it--- we finally hit--- this is going to be a very good period for lithium batteries. Tracy Weslosky: Okay. What I hear you saying is that the real demand is from China for lithium-ion batteries. I think you told me that the driver is going to be, once again -- China for this market and that this industry is going to in essence mirror what happened with the rare earth industry. Can you comment on this a little further? Jack Lifton: Well, I don’t think we’re going to have the silly season here with lithium because lithium is basically one item and its costs are very well known. Today it’s very low price. However, in my opinion we’re going to run into a deficit of this material in the very near-term because, as I mentioned, it’s not just China -- it’s United States also….to access the complete interview, click here

WUS2015 Black magic? Health issues & Jadugoda uranium mines in India
SHAKEEL UR RAHMAN (INDIA) Indian Doctors for Peace and Development SHRI PRAKASH (INDIA) National Award winning filmmaker Film maker from the uranium mining area Jadugoda THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

Breaking News  - The many ways that building a smartphone devastates the planet
Smartphones have become a staple feature of modern life, with people upgrading their handset on a regular basis in a bid to keep up with the latest features.However, few stop to consider the serious environmental impact this gadget addiction is having on the planet. Writing for The Conversation, a pair of scientists highlight three of the most damaging effects that building a smartphone can have on Earth.Catastrophic mine waste spills, ecosystem destruction and a toxic run-off lake in China are a stark reminder of the devastation the industry causes. Dr Patrick Byrne, a researcher at Liverpool John Moores University, and Karen Hudson-Edwards, a scientist at the University of Exeter, argue that, as consumers, we should drop the idea that smartphones are a throwaway item. Pictured is the deforestation of the Peruvian Amazon, caused by illegal gold mining. Almost five billion people worldwide will own a smartphone by 2020 – many of these device's key technological features would not be possible without precious metals, like gold  Share this article Share 112 shares Catastrophic mine waste spills  The village of Bento Rodrigues, in Brazil was buried under a wave of toxic sludge in November 2015. According to experts, these catastrophic mine tailings failures will only increase as the number of these structures increases to meet with ever-increasing demand  Ecosystem destructionThe most polluted place on the planet? The 'world's tech waste lake' in Baotou, China. This is perhaps the most disturbing example of the environmental cost of our smartphone thirst, Dr Patrick Byrne says. Created in 1958, this artificial lake collects the toxic sludge from rare earth processing operations According to the latest estimates, Earth will run out of some of the rare materials – like terbium and dysprosium – used in modern smartphones within the next 20 to 50 years  The Conversation Privacy Policy AutoNews- Source:https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6109561/From-deforestation-lakes-toxic-sludge-building-smartphone-devastates-Earth.html?ns_mchannel=rss&ito=1490&ns_campaign=1490

La sale guerre des terres rares
Les métaux rares issus des terres rares sont devenus un enjeu stratégique majeur, car ils sont indispensables au développement des produits technologiques. La demande a explosé cette dernière décennie. Aujourd'hui, la Chine, qui en possède la plus grande réserve mondiale, a restreint ses exportations. Est-ce que les métaux rares seront l'arme économique du XXIe siècle ? Est-ce que l'Afghanistan et ses minerais stratégiques était une autre raison officieuse de la guerre ? De même que pour un autre Grand Jeu, celui en Arctique, où les hydrocarbures ne sont pas les seuls objets de convoitise. Il faut attendre le projet Manhattan dans les années 1940 pour que les terres rares soient purifiées à un niveau industriel et les années 1970 pour que l'une d'elle, l'yttrium, trouve une application de masse dans la fabrication de luminophores des tubes cathodiques utilisés dans la télévision couleur. L'extraction et le raffinage des terres rares entraînent le rejet de nombreux éléments toxiques : métaux lourds, acide sulfurique ainsi que des éléments radioactifs (uranium et thorium). « Il faut injecter sept ou huit tonnes d'ammonium sulfate dans le sol pour extraire une tonne d'oxyde, ces liquides toxiques vont résider longtemps et les conséquences seraient épouvantables si l'eau souterraine était polluée » Cérium, terbium, samarium, gadolinium, ces métaux demeurent méconnus du grand public. Pourtant, ils sont présents dans les écrans, les téléphones et jusque dans les billets de banque. Communément appelés « terres rares », ces métaux sont l'objet de luttes économiques âpres. De plus, leur extraction a des conséquences dévastatrices pour l'environnement. Les dernières mines des Etats-Unis ont fermé, laissant la Chine en situation de monopole. Face à la demande croissante, on estime que dans cinq ans, la Chine ne pourra plus répondre à ses propres besoins en terres rares. Maintes opérations de prospection ont lieu : il y aurait des gisements en Afrique du Sud, en Australie, au Canada, au fond des mers et sur la Lune.

Water Turns Blood Red in Mexico
Lagoon becomes blood red in Mexico. This lagoon situated in Huatalco, Mexico has turned blood red within the last 10 days. The reddish water of 'La Salina' lagoon impacts residents' life and kills wildlife in the area. After the mysterious overnight disappearance of a river near Veracruz, Mexico, it's now a lagoon that has unexpectedly turned color from green to red. Scientists believe the color is a result of a red tide, a phenomenon in which estuarine, marine, or fresh water algae accumulate rapidly in the water column, which changes the color of the surface water. The production of natural toxins and depletion of dissolved oxygen could be responsible for wildlife mortalities of marine and coastal species of fish, birds, marine mammals, and other organisms around the lagoon. Although red tides appear to be natural in some locations, residents believe that this algae blloom is the result of increased nutrient loading from human activities and low precipitation. Indeed, the 'La Salina' lagoon is known for being highly polluted and the sewage plant is not working properly. http://www.sott.net/article/313800-Lagoon-becomes-blood-red-in-Mexico
