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!

(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.

This is a film about the Buzuluksky Bor National Park. It is the only steppe relict pine forest in the world. In the spring of 2015 a tender to produce oil here was published in Russia. Его выиграла компания «Новый поток» – предприятие, занимающееся только переработкой и не имеющее опыта добычи нефти на особо охраняемых территориях. Объявило тендер министерство природных ресурсов России. Ведомство, которое должно было защищать заповедники, само предложило добывать нефть в центре национального парка. It went to the New Stream company which at the moment only dealt with oil processing and had no experience of oil production on protected territories. The tender was published by the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia. The state institution which has to protect national parks offered to produce oil right in the center of one of them.

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.

Durango Tourism Declines in Aftermath of EPA Mine Spill
Just one week after an estimated three million gallons of waste water spilled from an abandoned gold mine near Silverton, Colorado into the Animus River, the downstream tourist community of Durango, Colorado struggles with the effects of the rivers closure and resulting decline in tourism. Among those affected, those in the river recreation industry were hit hardest, and continue to hurt while the river remains closed and the City of Durango renews a Declaration of Emergency. Shot and edited by Kaard Bombe. Reporting and story by Thomas Hawthorne. The river has since reopened.

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!

🗻 Everest 60th Anniversary | 101 East
Conquering Mount Everest is undoubtedly one of man’s greatest feats. In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary, with the help of his guide Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, made mountaineering history as the first man on the highest mountain in the world. Sixty years later on the anniversary of man’s ascent, 101 East presenter Steve Chao, retraces Sir Hillary’s footsteps to Everest Base Camp at 17,598 feet. During this journey, he discovers that banking on the desire to scale the world’s tallest mountain, local and foreign mountaineering operators are cashing in on the job. Participants are made to sign an indemnity form and pay up tens of thousands of dollars for an experience of a lifetime. It is not just money they are handing over, but also their lives. Up in the mountains, expedition leaders make all the calls, leaders like Russell Brice. Brice runs the Himalayan Experience and has been guiding expeditions to the Himalayas since 1974. Nicknamed the “King of the Mountain”, Brice shows how camping in the wilderness can be done in style. But when it is time to summit, Brice commands his team like an army officer. The weather on top of Everest changes within hours, meaning mountaineers can get lost when visibility decreases and severe storms ravage the top. A wrong forecast by Brice can spell danger for his team. The window of opportunity to scale Everest is tiny and last year, Brice abandoned their summit plan. The increasing demand for Everest expedition trips has also created a boom in trekking business, drawing climbers with no prior experience Eleven climbers died in 2012, making it the second deadliest year in Everest’s history. One of the climbers was Shriya Shah-Klorfine, a 33-year-old Nepali-Canadian businesswomen. Her husband Bruce Klorfine says it had always been her dream to climb Everest but she was unprepared for it. She went with Utmost Adventure Trekking Company and reports claim that she was with inexperienced sherpas, an ethnic group from Nepal's most mountainous region, high in the Himalayas. We put these claims to the manager of Utmost Adventure Trekking Company. Another danger on Everest is called “Summit day crowding” - with hundreds of climbers flocking to Everest each year armed with limited oxygen supply, a traffic jam is formed and climbers can only count down to the last of their oxygen supply. We speak to Nepal’s tourism minister to ask if there should be better regulation for issuing permits. On this episode of 101 East, we celebrate the victories but ask if the growing tourism is putting lives at risk.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

North Korea's Kim Jong-Un sets out his vision for a tourist paradise
Thank you for watching. Have a nice day! My channel: https://goo.gl/vCXdrM ABOUT: Kim Jong-Un has been pictured visiting hot springs in North Korea as the dictator oversees the construction of a new coastal tourist spot.The country's leader looked cheerful in pictures released by Pyongyang's official news agency as he spoke to officials on a desolate-looking beach.The planned tourist site at Wonsan-Kalma is a vast development on the North's east coast, which Kim has ordered to be ready by the autumn of next year.It is scheduled to be completed by October 10, an important public holiday in the country which marks the founding of a precursor to the ruling Workers' Party of Korea.Kim wants to rebuild Wonsan by demolishing its centre and replacing it with five-star skyscraper hotels and department stores for his elite.The news agency said Kim was shown a hotel, lodging quarters and service buildings and asked for trees to be planted to make the area look green.'It is the Party's long-cherished idea and his long-desired job to build wonderful recreational resorts on the scenic and beautiful shores of our country to let the people enjoy themselves to the full,' he said.But although Kim is intent on rebuilding the city of 360,000 into a luxury resort, he has also launched nearly 40 missiles from the area.During his visit Kim also took aim at international sanctions on his hermit kingdom, blaming what he called 'hostile forces' for 'trying to stifle the Korean people through brigandish sanctions and blockade'.There has been little progress in relations between Washington and Pyongyang since the historic summit between Kim and Donald Trump in Singapore, with the North criticising America for 'gangster-like' demands for disarmament.The U.S.has urged the international community to maintain tough sanctions on the isolated regime, and the US Treasury this week announced measures against Russian and Chinese companies for violations.

El Mina wreck. T-43 Class Minesweeper in Hurghada (Egypt)
Between 1967 and 1970, Israel and Egypt fought in what is known as the War of Attrition. In punishment of an incursion of Egyptian naval commandos in the bay of Eilat in which two Israeli ships were sunk, on February 5, 1970, the Israeli air force, with US-made Phantom F-4 aircraft, bombed the military port of Hurghada, sinking a Soviet-made Egyptian minesweeper, known by NATO standards, as T-43. Today the wreck is a popular recreational diving spot next to the tourist port of Hurghada, lying on its port side, 32 meters at its deepest point. Entre 1967 i 1970, Israel i Egipte es van enfrontar en la coneguda com a Guerra de Desgast. En càstig a una incursió d'un comando naval egipci a la badia d'Eilat en què van resultar enfonsats dos vaixells israelians, el 5 de febrer de 1970 la força aèria israeliana, amb avions Phantom F-4 de fabricació nord-americana, va bombardejar el port militar de Hurgada , enfonsant una dragaminas egipci de fabricació soviètica, conegut pels estàndards de l'OTAN, com T-43. Avui dia el derelicte és un popular punt de busseig recreatiu al costat del port turístic d'Hurghada, tombat pel seu costat de babord, a 32 metres en el seu punt més profund.

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

March in Montevideo to celebrate legalisation of marijuana; cannabis liberation day in Mexico
Marijuana smokers in the Uruguayan and Mexican capitals celebrated the 15th annual Global Cannabis March on Saturday, an event advocating for marijuana reforms. Activists gathered for an outdoor festival in Montevideo, a day after Uruguay unveiled plans to legalise the production and sale of the drug. The plan calls for the dissemination of clones of government-approved marijuana plants, so that police can test marijuana possessed by licensed users and ensure that it's bona fide. Uruguay's marijuana rules, which President Jose Mujica plans to sign on Monday, will take effect on Tuesday. In Mexico City, hundreds of people participated in a march calling for the government to decriminalise the drug's use and to allow people to grow their own marijuana. Since 2009, Mexico has allowed the possession of no more than five grams of the drug, about four joints, for personal use, but it still requires arrests of people caught buying or selling pot in any amount. Dozens of other cities worldwide, from New York to Toronto to Jakarta, held pro-marijuana gatherings on Saturday.

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Namibia
Thanks for watching.... 1. Windhoek 2. Rundu 3. Walvis Bay 4. Swakopmund 5. Oshakati 6. Rehoboth 7. Katima Mulilo 8. Otjiwarongo 9. Okahandja 10. 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

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.

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.

College Loan Application/Anonymous Declaring Cyber War/Better Qualified LLC/Helena MT
Helena, city and capital of Montana, U.S., seat (1867) of Lewis and Clark county. The city is situated near the Missouri River, at the eastern foot of the Continental Divide (elevation 3,955 feet), in Prickly Pear Valley, a fertile region surrounded by rolling hills and lofty mountains. Mount Helena (5,462 feet) and Mount Ascension (5,360 feet) form scenic backdrops. According to the Federal Writers’ Project guide to Montana (1939), the region in which Helena grew was never the “regular abode” of any Native Americans, although artifacts reveal that they were present periodically, perhaps in hunting parties. The area was traversed by the expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805. Gold was discovered in July 1864 in Last Chance Gulch, now occupied by the city’s main street. The town (named for Helena, Minnesota) was founded on October 30, 1864. It became capital of the territory in 1875 and of the state in 1889. By 1893 the mining boom (based on gold, silver, and lead) had passed, and future prosperity came in cycles—with the building of the Canyon Ferry, Hauser, and Holter dams on the Missouri River (1900–10); with the renewal of mining activities brought about by the demand for metals in World War I; and with the piping of natural gas from surrounding fields. In addition to state government activities, Helena is an agricultural and livestock trade centre and has light manufactures. It is the headquarters of Helena National Forest, and tourism provides an added source of income. Adjacent East Helena has lead and zinc smelting and refining works. Helena is the seat of the Carroll College (1909; Roman Catholic) and of the Montana Historical Society (with a museum, photo and manuscript archives, a library, and an art gallery). The capitol building has a copper-covered dome surmounted by a reproduction of the Statue of Liberty. Several state recreation areas are near the city. Inc. 1881. Pop. (2000) 25,780; (2010) 28,190.

Consumer credit includes such common forms as credit cards, store cards, motor vehicle finance, personal loans, consumer lines of credit, retail loans and mortgages. A credit rating is an evaluation of the credit risk of a prospective debtor, predicting their ability to pay back the debt, and an implicit forecast of the likelihood of the debtor defaulting. The credit rating represents an evaluation of a credit rating agency of the qualitative and quantitative information for the prospective debtor, including information provided by the prospective debtor and other non-public information obtained by the credit rating agency's analysts.

This subsector of Finance and insurance called Monetary authorities comprises establishments primarily engaged in performing central banking functions, such as issuing currency (paper money); managing the nation's money supply and international reserves; overseeing payment, clearing and settlement systems; holding deposits that represent the reserves of other banks and institutions; and acting as fiscal agent for the federal government. The institutional arrangements for performing these functions and for conducting monetary policy may differ among the countries. As warplanes pound ISIS targets and U.S. special forces ramp up operations in Syria, the war against the terrorist group may be unfolding on another far more unconventional front as well. The hackers' collective known as Anonymous says it, too, is at war with ISIS. In a series of messages posted on Twitter and YouTube, Anonymous claimed to be "preparing to unleash waves of attacks" on the extremist group, which is also known as the Islamic State, ISIS, or by its Arabic acronym Daesh. "Cyber Attacks can have a tremendous impact," cyberwarfare expert David Gewirtz told CBS News.
The Choice is Ours (2016) Official Full Version
https://www.thevenusproject.com Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.
