What is SOCIOLOGY OF LEISURE? What does SOCIOLOGY OF LEISURE mean? SOCIOLOGY OF LEISURE meaning - SOCIOLOGY OF LEISURE definition - SOCIOLOGY OF LEISURE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sociology of leisure is the study of how humans organize their free time. Leisure includes a broad array of activities, such as sport, tourism, and the playing of games. The sociology of leisure is closely tied to the sociology of work, as each explores a different side of the work-leisure relationship. More recent studies in the field move away from the work-leisure relationship and focus on the relation between leisure and culture. Studies of leisure have determined that observable patterns cannot be easily explained by socioeconomic variables such as income, occupation or education. The type of leisure activity is substantially influenced by the individual's immediate situation (presence or lack of family, age, and other factors). Sociology of leisure is a fairly recent subfield of sociology, compared to more traditional subfields such as sociology of work, sociology of the family, and sociology of education: it saw most of its development in the second half of the 20th century. Until then, leisure had often been seen as a relatively unimportant, minor feature of society. Leisure is now recognized as a major social institution, deserving of serious sociological inquiry, particularly in Western societies. As John Wilson and others have noted, it is difficult to define leisure. Its definitions are numerous and often mutually contradictory, for example as a discrete portion of one's time or as a quality of experience irrespective of time. Joffre Dumazedier distinguished four distinct definitions of leisure, which begin broadly and gradually narrow in scope. The first and broadest defines leisure as a style of behavior that may occur even at work, the second defines it as any non-work activity; the third further excludes family and household obligations; and, finally, the narrowest defines leisure as activities dedicated to self-fulfillment. Dumazedier's four definitions are not exhaustive. Incompatible definitions and measures are seen as a major factor accounting for occasionally contradictory research findings. There are some unresolved questions concerning the definition of work: in particular, whether unpaid endeavors, such as volunteering or studying, are work. Non-work time should not be equated with free time, as it comprises not only free time, dedicated to leisure, but also time dedicated to certain obligatory activities, such as housework. Dividing activities into free and dedicated time is not easy. For example, brushing one's teeth is neither work nor leisure; scholars differ in their classifications of activities such as eating a meal, shopping, repairing a car, attending a religious ceremony, or showering (various individuals may or may not classify such activities as leisure). The relation between work and leisure can also be unclear: research indicates that some individuals find skills that they have acquired at work useful to their hobbies (and vice versa), and some individuals have used leisure activities to advance their work careers. Sociologists also disagree as to whether political or spiritual activities should be included in studies of leisure. Further, among some occupational communities, such as police officers or miners, it is common for work colleagues to be off-time friends and to share similar, work-based leisure activities.

Backpacking to a Ghost Town Cemetery, Ozark Mountains, AR, USA
Rush Historic District, Ozark Mountains, Arkansas, USA In the 1880s, farmers on the Rush Creek discovered zinc and soon the "rush" to Rush began. A mining boom was well underway by the 1890s. Mining in the area was at its peak during World War I, when the town's population reached an estimated 5,000. The demand for zinc dropped after the war and eventually all mines shut down. The post office closed in the mid 1950s and Rush officially became a ghost town when the land was acquired by the National Park Service in 1972. Bob808Knight, Jessica, Bill in the Hills, Lisa, Caveman Outdoors and KennethKramm backpacked from the ghost town to a nearby abandoned cemetery. Wow, it was awesome, yet scary, to spend the night!

Breaking: Mnangagwa appoints new CIO director, perm secs
.Breaking: Mnangagwa appoints new CIO director, perm secs. President Emmerson Mnangagwa has with immediate effect appointed Zimbabwe ambassador to South Africa and Lesotho Isaac Moyo as the new director-general of the country’s spy agency – Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) replacing Retired Major General Happyton Bonyongwe. Bonyongwe was appointed Justice minister by former President Robert Mugabe in a witch-hunt mini-Cabinet reshuffle targeted at weeding out suspected Mnangagwa backers at the height of the Zanu PF factional fighting. Chief secretary to the President and Cabinet, Misheck Sibanda said the President had in terms of section 226, subsection (1) of the Constitution, appointed Moyo, taking over from deputy director-general Aaron Nhepera, who was acting since Bonyongwe’s departure in October. Moyo was appointed ambassador to South Africa in September 2014 after a stint as executive secretary of the African Union committee of intelligence and security service in Africa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Mnangagwa also appointed and re-assigned 21 permanent secretaries for the reconfigured government ministries, with under-fire secretary for Higher Education, Science and Technology Development Francis Gudyanga replaced by Desire Mutize Sibanda formerly secretary for Youth. Gudyanga and his 13 subordinates were recently booted out of Parliament after they failed to adequately answer questions pertaining to a report on the ministry’s shambolic accounts. Mnangagwa also re-assigned George Magosvongwe to Local Government, Public Works and National Housing replacing George Mlilo, who has moved to the Transport and Infrastructural Development ministry. Grace Mutandiro, formerly Lands secretary, became secretary for Environment, Water and Climate while Judith Kateera became secretary for Presidential Affairs, Monitoring and Implementation of Government Programmes. Former secretary for Environment Prince Mupazviriho moved to Sport, Arts and Recreation while Munesushe Munodawafa was assigned to the Mines and Mining Development ministry. Defence secretary Martin Rushwaya, Virginia Mabiza (Justice), Sylvia Utete-Masango (Primary and Secondary Education), Joey Bimha (Foreign Affairs and International Trade) and Willard Manungo (Finance and Economic Development) retained their positions in their respective ministries. Others who also survived were Melusi Matshiya (Home Affairs and Culture), Ngoni Masoka (Labour and Social Welfare), Abigail Shonhiwa (Industry, Commerce and Enterprise Development), George Charamba (Information, Media and Broadcasting Services), Gerald Gwinji (Health and Child Care), Sam Kundishora (ICT and Cyber Security), Sibusisiwe Zembe (Women and Youth Affairs), Thokozile Chitepo (Tourism) and Ringson Chitsiko (Rural Resettlement). 🌴 Get Free Subscribe Here: - https://goo.gl/QrjDRC 🌴 Website: https://goo.gl/UasZwB 🌴 Twitter: - https://goo.gl/WdWB1i 🌴 Plus: - https://goo.gl/4viMNi 🙏Thanks For Watching.

In 1980 economist and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman inspired market reform in the West and revolutions in the East with his celebrated television series “Free To Choose.” Thirty years later, in this one-hour documentary, the young Swedish writer, analyst and Cato Institute Fellow Johan Norberg travels in Friedman’s footsteps to see what has actually happened in the places Friedman’s ideas helped transform. In location after location Norberg examines the contemporary relevance of Friedman’s ideas in the 2011 world of globalization and financial crisis. Central to his examination are the perennial questions concerning power and prosperity, and the trade-offs between individual liberty and income equality.

(Phuket - Chalong) New reservoir under construction
PHUKET: Construction of the 5.7-million-cubic-meter Klong Krata reservoir in Chalong has stalled because the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE) has yet to approve a request to use a 60-rai plot needed for the project. According to Isara Anukul, chief of the water allocation division at Phuket Provincial Irrigation Office (PPIO), construction was planned to begin this year and be completed in 2012. "But approval for 60 rai of forest land from the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment remains outstanding," he said. The initial request by the PPIO to use the land was submitted three years ago. PPIO Director Weerawat Aungsupanith told the Gazette in early March that approval for the plot was not far off. "I think it will take about one or two months," he said. In April 2007, Irrigation Department official Theerachart Sangkaha, then in charge of the project, reported during a meeting at Provincial Hall that approval from the Forestry Department for use of 157 rai of the 430-rai, 960-million-baht project had "already been granted" and that the project would be finished in 2009. What has forced the delay has never been announced, but it is likely not related to protests by environmentalists or attempts by officialdom at environmental preservation. Local people are generally behind the project, which includes a ring road and recreational park to spur economic development in the area. As for the environment, its natural beauty was long ago compromised by tin-mining and rubber plantations. The most notable developments in the area are the Luangpoo Supha Temple and a golf course constructed by a family of former tin-mining-concession holders. Construction of the 720-meter-long, 25-meter-high dam, with all its potential for agricultural development, and recreational and tourism activities, must be considered a boon even by environmentalists. Beyond question Phuket needs it. Although one of the rainiest places on earth, the island has suffered chronic water shortages for decades -- and demand continues to grow with the island's steadily rising population. Mr Isara expects demand for water to increase by 27 million cubic meters annually over the next 17 years, an average increase of roughly 1.6 million cubic meters a year.

Mining Battle on Pender Island
http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi PENDER ISLAND -- Homeowners on Pender Island say there is a battle brewing in their community over mining. Recently, two men on the island have staked more than 20 mining claims that cover nearly half of North and South Pender. Staking claims online is legal through the province's Mineral Tenure Act. Claim owner must meet several regulations before mining including giving property owners notice. So far, at least one property owner has received written notice from the miners indicating plans to mine. Gary Steeves, the Islands Trust North Island trustee, says there are growing concerns regulations will not be met. He says the two men have called and emailed several Pender Island property owners telling people they plan to mine for fortunes. The two men did not want to speak with CTV News. Provincial representatives traveled to Pender Island this week to assess the situation. The Islands Trust wants the Gulf Islands to be made a no-mining zone similar to Greater Vancouver and Victoria.

Louisville Colorado Town and Neighborhood Tour
Louisville Colorado has the distinction of being named Money Magazine's #1 best place to live in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. The Money Magazine Study included crime rate, quality of life, health statistics, employment and housing measures. Obviously, Louisville was at or near the top in all of these categories to be #1 in the nation. Louisville Colorado is a small town with easy access to both Boulder and Denver. It's a town where kids walk to school and friends meet for lunch at an old town restaurant. Louisville Colorado was originally a coal mining town and was founded in the late 1800's. For many years Louisville's population was around 2,000 residents. Now it is a thriving town of 18,000. The highly rated schools are part of the Boulder Valley School District. There is one high school, two middle schools and four elementary schools. The schools consistently rank among the states best. There are many options for shopping and dining. Old Town features many quaint restaurants and is a great place to spend a relaxed evening. Louisville is surrounded by shopping; it is minutes from The Flatirons Crossing Mall and other large retailers like Super Target, Wild Oats Market and Costco. I'd be surprised if you had to go further than 10 minutes to find anything you would want to buy. Real Estate: There is a diverse housing stock in Louisville Colorado. In Old Town you will find bungalows and remodeled Victorians. The rest of Louisville was mostly developed in the 1970's through the 1990's. A typical neighborhood is Louisville features quiet, winding streets of well kept homes within an easy walk to a park or open space. Louisville's housing market is particularly strong. There is high demand and typically not many homes on the market. All of Boulder County is an outdoor mecca and Louisville in particular has a great outdoor lifestyle. It's easy to get around on a bike and there are many parks, a city owned recreation center, a golf course and open space trails to enjoy. So, if you are interested in living in Money Magazine's #1 Best Place To Live call me. I'm a Boulder County Native and one of the top Realtors in the area. I'd love to give you a personalized tour.

Native American Proverb once said, “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”. This proverb means, it is our duty to protect and preserve the earth we live in. Do you realize how busy we can get with our lives that we have sometimes failed to notice the smog layered skies, the dying trees or the dwindling animal habitat that cry and plead for help? So, let’s take a step to protect our bleeding planet. In this process, we can get ourselves involve in many activities which protect the environment. One of the ways we can do this is by getting ourselves involved in ecotourism. Geared towards nature-loving, socially and ecologically conscious people, ecotourism helps to conserve the environment and sustain the well-being of local people (TIES, 1990). Known as responsible tourism, ecotourism takes people to the undisturbed area to explore the rich cultural manifestations of the flora and fauna without causing any harm (Ceballos-Lascurain, 1987; Tickell, 1994). The major market for ecotourism are Costa Rica, Ecuador, Nepal, Kenya, and Madagascar, however, most countries, particularly in the Southern Hemisphere countries are actively engaged in promoting ecotourism which includes Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Ecotourism traveler is known as an ecotourist. Generally, ecotourists are characterized as having higher incomes, educated, and tend to be female. This tourist seeks the direct contact with nature and they are aware of the fact that they are paying a superior value for an environmentally friendly program (Wight, 1996). Ministry of Tourism and Culture also proposed an Ecotourism Clusters. There are 60 proposed ecotourism clusters altogether, with 43 clusters in Peninsular Malaysia. Out of all the 43 clusters, 6 clusters are located in Pahang and one of them is Sungai Lembing. Sungai Lembing was a major producer of underground tin and it was managed by the Pahang Consolidated Company Limited (PCCL). However, the pit mines were closed in 1986 due to high operational costs and low yields. Today, this small town is becoming as one of the tourist attractions for the ecotourism activities. There are several principles that should be followed by a site that offers ecotourism activities which include nature-based, minimize the impact, build environmental awareness and provide financial benefits for local people (TIES). Ecotourism is definitely a growing concept in Malaysia. This can be seen where the demand for ecotourism from the tourists also increases day by day as they would love to see the green sceneries to escape from their normal environment. We hope you guys enjoy this video and keep on protecting our environment!

Klondike Alaska: A Rail History
For most people, railroads in Alaska and the Yukon are synonymous with the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass and Yukon Railroad whose passenger cars provide tourists with vistas of awe-inspiring terrain. That same terrain provided enormous challenges for early settlers of both territories. Railroads were an integral part of overcoming those challenges. Dozens of other railroads also laid track in Alaska, the Yukon, and northwest British Columbia and provided the means to transport supplies to settlements and to transport the region’s raw materials to outside markets. Klondike Alaska charts the history of many of those railroads. ©KUAC 2005 DVD's of this program are available for purchase at www.kuac.org.

Serpentine Falls National Park
It's been a popular spot for families for over a century and you can see why. Long before the arrival of the Europeans, the Nyoongar Aborigines of the Whadjuk and probably the Bindjareb tribes hunted and camped in the woodlands regions that lay between what is now Perth and Pinjarra. It was the Nyoongars of the south-west who used fire sticks to burn parts of the forest, and over thousands of years, the scrub fires created some areas of open forest and grassland. The Serpentine River, the surrounding hills and wetlands of the coastal plains, provided the Nyoongar with fresh water and food, including fish, tortoises, lizards and birds. Fish traps were constructed on the river, downstream from the falls and where it flows through a chain of small lakes, on its journey to the Peel Inlet. With the start of the winter rains, tribal groups from the north, east and south, would gather near Barragup to catch the fish that were driven downstream by the fast flowing waters. Many of the streams flowing off the scarp supported family groups during different seasons of the year. The two streams that flow into the Serpentine above the falls were named Carralong and Gooralong, and an area between them, later to be known as Spencer’s Flats, was reputed to have been used for corroborees. First discovered by Europeans two months after the Swan River Settlement was established in July 1829, the Serpentine River and surround area attracted those seeking land, timber and precious metals, such as gold and silver. There is doubt about whether the reported gold strike was genuine, but the remains of several mine shafts can still be seen in the park. By the 1890s, so much land had been cleared for farming, cut for timber or mined, that people began to realise that the native flora and fauna was disappearing. In 1894, the state’s first reserve for flora and fauna was proclaimed - 160,000 hectares between Pinjarra, North Dandalup and Bannister. The demand for timber pushed to reduce this area, and the reserve was subsequently cancelled in 1911. It was noted, however, that the falls, which were placed in a reserve for public recreation, were visited by ‘trainloads of excursionists... every flower season’ and needed some management presence to protect them from overuse. Over the years, various blocks of land were reserved and in 1957, they were all vested together and renamed ‘Serpentine National Park’. There is no record who named Serpentine River, but it was first recorded by Captain Mark Currie in 1892, although the name first appeared on a map published by the Royal Geographic al Society in 1832. The park is named after the river. Open daily, there is an entry fee per car. We paid $12 today to enjoy the picnic area amongst the kangaroos and many visitors and walked up to the falls where my kids and their friends enjoy a swim during summer. Diving is a no no as there have been a dozen deaths in just 40 years. I recommend Serpentine Falls for the family and it is so close to Perth.

A fresh study done by the Goa State Pollution Control Board says the Mandovi's waters are "unsafe for recreational bathing, water sports and fishing". The waters contain alarmingly high levels of coliform bacteria due to release of untreated sewage, the study says. The study based on fresh inspection of the river's waters has observed that quality of water does not meet the classification of the rivers for bathing, water sports and commercial fishing. The inspection was carried out from January 27 to 31. Water samples from six locations were tested following directions from the National Green Tribunal. Colour, odour, floating matters, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, faecal coliform and biological oxygen demand were the parameters tested. Interistingly, a study of the river by the National Institute of Oceanography done between 2002 and 2007 had also discovered that waters in the Mandovi as well as Zuari and along the coast had higher levels of bacteria than permissible for recreational bathing and even fishing.

Future Chalong reservoir
PHUKET: Construction of the 5.7-million-cubic-meter Klong Krata reservoir in Chalong has stalled because the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE) has yet to approve a request to use a 60-rai plot needed for the project. According to Isara Anukul, chief of the water allocation division at Phuket Provincial Irrigation Office (PPIO), construction was planned to begin this year and be completed in 2012. "But approval for 60 rai of forest land from the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment remains outstanding," he said. The initial request by the PPIO to use the land was submitted three years ago. PPIO Director Weerawat Aungsupanith told the Gazette in early March that approval for the plot was not far off. "I think it will take about one or two months," he said. In April 2007, Irrigation Department official Theerachart Sangkaha, then in charge of the project, reported during a meeting at Provincial Hall that approval from the Forestry Department for use of 157 rai of the 430-rai, 960-million-baht project had "already been granted" and that the project would be finished in 2009. What has forced the delay has never been announced, but it is likely not related to protests by environmentalists or attempts by officialdom at environmental preservation. Local people are generally behind the project, which includes a ring road and recreational park to spur economic development in the area. As for the environment, its natural beauty was long ago compromised by tin-mining and rubber plantations. The most notable developments in the area are the Luangpoo Supha Temple and a golf course constructed by a family of former tin-mining-concession holders. Construction of the 720-meter-long, 25-meter-high dam, with all its potential for agricultural development, and recreational and tourism activities, must be considered a boon even by environmentalists. Beyond question Phuket needs it. Although one of the rainiest places on earth, the island has suffered chronic water shortages for decades -- and demand continues to grow with the island's steadily rising population. Mr Isara expects demand for water to increase by 27 million cubic meters annually over the next 17 years, an average increase of roughly 1.6 million cubic meters a year. "This year demand for water will amount to about 51 million cubic meters, or 145,000m³/day. By 2027, demand will amount to 78 million cubic meters, or 214,000m³/day," he said. To help meet demand, work is underway on two reservoir projects in Rassada funded under the central government's Thai Khem Khaeng (Strong Thailand) financial stimulus package. The smaller reservoir, behind Phuket Rajabaht University, is a former tin mine pond that will be expanded to 15 rai and its storage capacity increased to 50,000m³ under a 14-million-baht budget. The other, off Pracha-uthit Rd, will hold 500,000m³ of water and cover 90 rai when the 27-million-baht contract is completed. Both projects are expected to improve water supply in Rassada, where shortages are common. Kamala Deputy Mayor Santi Auttasup also recently said the Kamala Tambon Administration has applied for 400 million baht in funding under Thai Khem Khaeng to build a reservoir near Getnee Hill.

Ecology Students in Portugal - Prof Gavin Burnell, School of BEES at UCC
UCC ecology students study conservation issues in the Ria Formosa National Park, Algarve, Portugal. Field work is the cornerstone of all our degree programmes in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (BEES) in University College Cork (Ireland). Every April for the last 17 years we have taken our third year ecology, zoology and plant science students to the Algarve in Portugal to experience the local habitats and ecosystems and to learn the various survey techniques that help us to understand them. The field course lasts seven days and includes work in terrestrial and aquatic sites from the coast to the Monchique Mountains. One of the highlights of the trip is the annual survey of the local fiddler crab (Uca tangeri) population in the Ria Formosa National Park. These amazing invertebrates inhabit many of the sheltered intertidal muddy foreshores in this region and they play an important part in maintaining the structure and function of these tidal areas. Unfortunately their continued existence in this unique environment is threatened by the rapid regional development that has taken place here over the last thirty years. Tourism has resulted in a chain of holiday related construction from Faro to Lagos and this has impacted on other coastal activities. One of the knock on effect of large numbers of tourists is an increase in demand for local seafood, especially small benthic clams that feature in dishes such as "cataplana" . These are supplied locally by a combination of licensed shellfish farming on intertidal plots and unlicensed, opportunistic clam diggers who take part in so called recreational fishing. Both activities will cause local disturbance and anecdotal evidence, accumulated over the years by our students' studies, would suggest that the relentless digging and trampling that accompanies the fishing and farming activities is taking its toll on the shy and sensitive fiddler crab. In addition to the impact caused by clam harvesting, the crabs themselves are exploited by fishermen who catch the males and remove their large white signal claw to sell as a local delicacy. It is difficult to estimate the scale of this now illegal activity, but our studies have demonstrated a significant imbalance in the sex ratio for the last ten years or so. The extent of the anthropogenic impact on the Algarvian fiddler crabs is not known but an extensive survey is urgently needed so that we can ascertain the current status of this keystone species.

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Namibia

Ondangwa Music : First Day, Huma-Huma; YouTube Audio Library Namibia, officially the Republic of Namibia (German: About this sound Republik Namibia (help·info); Afrikaans: Republiek van Namibië), is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean. It shares land borders with Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east. Although it does not border Zimbabwe, less than 200 metres of riverbed (essentially the Zambia/Botswana border) separates them at their closest points. It gained independence from South Africa on 21 March 1990, following the Namibian War of Independence. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek. Namibia is a member state of the United Nations (UN), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Commonwealth of Nations. The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by San, Damara, and Namaqua, and since about the 14th century AD by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion. Most of the territory became a German Imperial protectorate in 1884 and remained a German colony until the end of World War I. In 1920, the League of Nations mandated the country to South Africa, which imposed its laws and, from 1948, its apartheid policy. The port of Walvis Bay and the offshore Penguin Islands had been annexed by the Cape Colony under the British crown by 1878 and had become an integral part of the new Union of South Africa at its creation in 1910. Uprisings and demands by African leaders led the UN to assume direct responsibility over the territory. It recognised the South West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO) as the official representative of the Namibian people in 1973. Namibia, however, remained under South African administration during this time as South-West Africa. Following internal violence, South Africa installed an interim administration in Namibia in 1985. Namibia obtained full independence from South Africa in 1990, with the exception of Walvis Bay and the Penguin Islands, which remained under South African control until 1994. Namibia has a population of 2.1 million people and a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the basis of Namibia's economy. Given the presence of the arid Namib Desert, it is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Namibia enjoys high political, economic and social stability. The name of the country is derived from the Namib Desert, considered to be the oldest desert in the world. Before its independence in 1990, the area was known first as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika), then as South-West Africa, reflecting the colonial occupation by the Germans and the South Africans (technically on behalf of the British crown reflecting South Africa's dominion status within the British Empire). The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by San, Damara, Nama and, since about the 14th century AD, by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion from central Africa. From the late 18th century onwards, Orlam clans from the Cape Colony crossed the Orange River and moved into the area that today is southern Namibia. Their encounters with the nomadic Nama tribes were largely peaceful. The missionaries accompanying the Orlams were well received by them, the right to use waterholes and grazing was granted against an annual payment. On their way further northwards, however, the Orlams encountered clans of the Herero tribe at Windhoek, Gobabis, and Okahandja which were less accommodating. The Nama-Herero War broke out in 1880, with hostilities ebbing only when Imperial Germany deployed troops to the contested places and cemented the status quo between Nama, Orlams, and Herero. The first Europeans to disembark and explore the region were the Portuguese navigators Diogo Cão in 1485 and Bartolomeu Dias in 1486; still the region was not claimed by the Portuguese crown. However, like most of Sub-Saharan Africa, Namibia was not extensively explored by Europeans until the 19th century, when traders and settlers arrived, principally from Germany and Sweden. In the late 19th century Dorsland trekkers crossed the area on their way from the Transvaal to Angola. Some of them settled in Namibia instead of continuing their journey. Others returned to South-West African territory after the Portuguese tried to convert them to Catholicism and forbade their language at schools. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namibia

EPA Urges Return to Normalcy Days After Toxic River Spill
Authorities are pushing residents to return to normal along the Animas river, where a spill of 3 million gallons of acidic, heavy metal-laden mining waste turned the river a jarring yellow-orange for days. For hundreds of miles along the Animas and San Juan rivers, cities were forced to shut down municipal drinking water systems, farmers and ranchers had to find new water sources for crops and livestock, and tourist season was abruptly disrupted for river recreation-dependent towns. Now, nine days after the spill, the EPA is reporting that water quality in the Animas and adjoining San Juan rivers is “trending toward pre-event conditions” near the New Mexico-Colorado border. Irrigation ditches in affected areas, such as on Southern Ute tribe land, are being flushed for use beginning as soon as today. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/aug/14/animas-river-pollution-spill-colorado-mine http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Diminishing Ray of Hope: Manta Rays under Threat | 101 East
Marine biologist Daniel Fernando has been surveying Sri Lanka’s fishing industry for over two years. Today, he is in the western coastal town of Negombo, at one of the country’s busiest fish markets. He is passionate about saving manta and mobula rays from extinction. Fernando carefully examines a pile of rays on the pier, collecting DNA samples for population studies. Researchers estimate that fisheries the world over net more than 100,000 such rays a year, mostly in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and India. Many catches remain undocumented. Until recent years, most fishermen avoided them. Their meat is cheap and they damage fishing nets when entangled. But that has changed. The burgeoning demand for their gill plates in Chinese medicine – said to cleanse human blood of toxins – has increased fishing pressure worldwide, turning subsistence fishery into a commercial export industry. Also a member of conservation group Manta Trust, Daniel fears the combination of slow maturation, long gestation and infrequent pregnancies means manta and mobula populations cannot sustain the slaughter. With a wingspan of up to seven metres, manta rays are believed to be at least 15 to 20 years old by the time they are ready to breed. A mature female usually produces one pup every two to five years, with each pregnancy lasting a year. Scientists estimate they live more than 50 years. Less is known about their mobula cousins except they have a similar, slow reproductive cycle. So an entire school could be wiped out on a single fishing trip and never replaced. Fernando's contribution to manta research has paid off. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) listed them for protection in March 2013. This restricts the export of all manta parts, but there is a sting in the tail. Domestic trade is still allowed and the law only takes effect in 18 months’ time. Sociable and intelligent, the mantas and mobulas are a must-see item on the checklist of dive enthusiasts worldwide. But in 2011, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List classified the manta ray as “vulnerable”. Certain mobula species are also listed as under threat but too little is known about them to enforce trading or fishing bans. With time running out, Fernando’s camera snaps away at the species landed as traders skillfully chop them up. Amidst a bloodied mess, the head is hacked up for the gills. They fetch more money than shark fins. Up the supply chain in the dried seafood markets of China, dried manta gill plates sell for a threefold profit. Conservationists say the Chinese city of Guangzhou trades as much as 99 percent of a global market that includes Hong Kong, Taiwan and Southeast Asia. Market analysis suggests the total annual gill raker trade volume range between 60,000 and 80,000kg, with an estimated value of $11.3m per year. While Chinese dried seafood shops espouse the benefits of this costly product, it has no real medicinal value, says Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner Dr Chun Hung. It is not listed in any TCM text and its benefits are mere hearsay. Also a university lecturer, Dr Chun questions the preparation methods and warns against self-medication using such products. Back in Sri Lanka, fisherman Gnanadasa is hard pressed to think about conservation when the decline in fish stock also means less income for him. He needs to fish harder by casting nets to catch more fish, even though that is an unsustainable method that often lands by-catch like rays. And he no longer releases the rays that are still alive when he pulls in the nets. But dive operator Nishan Perera says eco-tourism can generate much more income for poverty reduction. He points to neighbouring Maldives, where mantas are protected and manta tourism rakes in an estimated $8m a year. A live manta is worth much more than a dead one, he says. In this edition of 101 East, Chan Tau Chou explores the trail of manta gills from the seas to the shops and investigates how humans threaten the existence of one of the most graceful creatures in the ocean. How long can the manta population survive?

The Meadow Lake Cemetery, Nevada County, California.
The demand for water to work the auriferous claims scattered in the foothills and valleys of Northern California's Nevada and Sierra counties brought attention to the Meadow Lake region as there was an inexhaustible supply of water, which could be collected in reservoirs and conducted by aqueducts to lower elevation mining locales. In the summer of 1858, the first permanent structure was erected in the Meadow Lake area, consisting of a stone wall across a 900 feet (270 m) ravine, forming the Meadow Lake reservoir. From it, Nevada City and southwestern Nevada County, obtained their principal supply of water during several months of the year. It measures 50 feet (15 m) in height, 15 feet (4.6 m) width at its apex, and is built of granite. In 1860, Henry Hartley arrived in the locale to trap. By 1863, he noticed some quartz ledges, and incorporated the "Excelsior Company". The town's heyday occurred during the period of 1865 to 1868 with the economy built on the prospect of finding substantial gold ore. In 1866, Meadow Lake was founded as the county's ninth township. Orion Clemens, older brother of the author Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain), resided in Meadow Lake for a time after 1866. Also known at one time as Summit City, an excursion vessel took revelers up the lake to hurdy-gurdy houses. Hurdy-gurdy halls were apparently so-called because of the presence of the "hurdy-gurdy girls". They appear to be the upper level of the dance hall girls of the American frontier fact and fiction. At its peak, there were 500 buildings and the population numbered up to 5,000 residents. By 1868, the population had dropped to fewer than 100 residents.
