.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.

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.

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!

Episode 15: The Kruger Lowveld region of Mpumlanga has some spectacular scenery. The area around Sabie, Graskop and Pilgrim’s Rest in particular form part of the Panoramic region and one visit to this area will explain why. Bevan and I recently spent some time adventuring through this area. The town of Sabie is the first town that you will find along Mpumalanga's Panorama Route, if you drive from Nelspruit. Although initially developed as a gold mining town during the gold rush era of the 1880s, the town's economy today depends on forestry. The cultivated hills between Sabie and nearby Graskop form one of the largest man-made forests in the world.

This report summarizes the first part of a 72 mile section hike of the Hayduke Trail. The original route of Section 6 as outlined in The Hayduke Trail by Joe Mitchel and Mike Coronella spans 72 miles between Lower Muley Twist Canyon in Capitol Reef National Park and the Hurricane Wash Trailhead near Coyote Gulch passing through Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and 28 miles of the Escalante River. The Hayduke Trail is an extremely challenging, 800-mile backcountry route through some of the most rugged and breathtaking landscapes on earth. Located entirely on public land, the trail links six of the National Parks on the Colorado Plateau in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona with the lesser known, but equally splendid, lands in between them. Encompassed in the route are Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon and Zion National Parks as well as Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and numerous National Forests, BLM Districts, Primitive Areas, Wilderness Areas and Wilderness Study Areas. The Hayduke Trail is not intended to be the easiest or most direct route through this incredibly varied terrain, but is rather meant to showcase the stunning Red Rock Wilderness of the American Southwest. Named after George Washington Hayduke III, a fictitious character in Edward Abbey's novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, the trail seeks to pay homage to Abbey for his tireless defense of these fragile and threatened public lands and to heighten awareness and promote the conservation of the wild places that he and so many other people have come to need and love. Here in Utah, feelings run strong and deep as to how public lands should be managed. While weighing both sides, it's important to keep in mind that the Colt Mesa property is located on lands that were purchased by U.S. taxpayers as a part of a larger congressional land exchange for Grand Staircase in 1998. We spent $50 million from the U.S. Treasury to ensure that this and other parcels would be transferred from the state of Utah to Bureau of Land Management ownership to be permanently protected — not mined. On June 13, 2018, a Canadian company, Glacier Lake Resources, announced that they’d acquired copper and cobalt mining claims at Colt Mesa, inside the original boundaries of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The company’s press release detailing the acquisition is loaded with cheerful optimism, and the company’s web page on the project states benignly that: “The Colt Mesa mine area was sterilized from exploration and development in 1996, when President Clinton created the ‘Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument,’ However, the size was recently reduced by Presidential proclamation in December 2017, which put Colt Mesa outside the new boundaries of the restructured national monument.” The release claims that “[s]urface exploration work will start during the summer of 2018 on the Colt Mesa property and drill permitting will be initiated shortly.” As it so happens, these lands are the subject of several lawsuits asserting that President Trump acted unlawfully in attempting to gut Grand Staircase. And because that action was unlawful and void from the get-go, any mining claims staked in the area removed from the monument are void too. According to a research paper, the mine was worked only intermittently from 1971 to 1974. What brought an end to mining and led to the abandonment of the claim? Lack of available water. Water doesn’t suddenly appear with time in the desert. Also lacking at the mine site are heavy-duty haul roads, electricity, and access to rail lines. The nearest town — Boulder, Utah — is doing quite well with agriculture and tourism, and it’s not about to reimagine itself as a mining service community. After staking a claim, a mining company must, at the very least, notify the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) of its mining plans and give the BLM a chance to demand more safeguards for our public lands. The BLM must sign off on plans to mine more than five acres. In the meantime, you can share your views by email with the BLM at: [email protected] Some of the text in this description was sourced from the following locations: https://www.grandcanyontrust.org/blog/new-mining-claims-filed-grand-staircase-escalante-national-monument http://www.hayduketrail.org/index.html Special thanks to Joe Mitchel and Mike Coronella for piecing together this route and sharing it through their book "The Hayduke Trail".

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!

Take action now - add your name to a letter direct to the Northern Territory Chief Minister asking him to stick to his commitment to close McArthur River Mine by October 1 if the company fails to pay an increased rehabilitation bond to clean up the river! Sign here: http://ecnt.org.au/clean-up-mcarthur-river-chief-minister-giles/ Glencore’s open pit lead and zinc mine in the bed of the McArthur River is 50km south of the town of Borroloola. The river, controversially diverted around the expanding mine pit, is the lifeblood of the Gulf of Carpenteria. Residents, tourists and recreational fishers eat the river’s abundant fish, and local pastoral stations and communities rely on its freshwater. Last year the mine’s waste rock dump caught fire due to reactive chemistry. The mine’s Independent Monitor warned, if not fixed, major acid metalliferous drainage problems would leach sulphuric acid into surrounding waterways. The mine’s leaking tailings dam was found to be at risk of collapse and in 2014 high levels of lead were found in local fish stocks and 400 cattle had to be destroyed after the Department of Mines and Energy found cattle contaminated with lead after accessing a contaminated creek on the McArthur River Mine site. Glencore is in breach of its operating conditions, continuing to discharge contaminated water in the McArthur River at double allowable limits. In response to revelations of major risks posed by its reckless mining activities, Glencore has so far refused to pay an increased rehabilitation bond to ensure site clean up. Freedom of Information requests by the McArthur River’s Aboriginal Traditional Owners have revealed internal NT Government memos contained warnings that Glencore’s actions would have ‘catastrophic consequences’ for downstream environment and communities. These warnings have been ignored by the NT Government. The NT Government has issued a warning that without a commitment to fund rehabilitation by an October 1 2015 deadline it may withdraw Glencore's authority to mine. McArthur River region Traditional Owners and the local community are calling on the NT Government to ensure Glencore pays for the comprehensive clean up and transition to a post-mining phase of operations to protect the river and local communities from the company’s reckless actions. Stand with us. More information at www.ECNT.org

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

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.

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.

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.

The film portrays, beautifully for its time, a number of features of Victoria's forests and woodlands - including flora, fauna, water and soils; recreation and tourism use; fire management; and economic values, including the then timber industry. The film briefly examines the then Forests Commission Victoria's (FCV) 'multiple-use' philosophy, and it explores the importance of balancing the environmental and economic demands community's make on forests.

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.

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.

Of all the countries we visited in the time we had on the continent, I feel like we 'did' Bolivia the most comprehensively. We did some incredible things: from delving into the mines of Cerro Rico, the Rich Mountain watching over the colonial and tragic city of Potosi, to cycling the heights of Death Road outside La Paz, exploring the Amazon basin, being blinded by the white city of Sucre, and finally... witnessing the salt flats, and the rest of Bolivia's stunning Southern landscapes, with our own eyes. Bolivia is an absolutely breathtaking country, both in its natural beauty and its unique culture. I won't be forgetting it any time soon. Enjoy in HD! Music: "Clay Brother" by Zef's Chasing Cara

Tom Paterson leads three Black Track Tours: Tom Paterson, well-known Vancouver Island historian, columnist, writer, is also noted for his hosting of "Black Track" tours of Morden Colliery, other area coal mining sites and rail lines. With his extensive knowledge of coal mining history and his engaging and dynamic delivery, he has a special ability to recreate the spirit of early coal mining days. The most complete above ground remains of a historic coal mine on Vancouver Island are to be found at Morden. These structures represent a last chance for us to appreciate the massive scale of coal-mining operations on the Island and to gain insight into the lives of those involved in this industry. Coal dominated life in the mid-island area for nearly a century, starting in 1852 with its development at what became the town of Nanaimo. Excavation of the Morden mine began in March 1912, alongside the existing PCCM (Pacific Coast Coal Mines) Company railway. Seven miles long, this had been completed two years earlier to run from the first PCCM coal mine at South Wellington to the Company's new shipping depot at Boat Harbour. It took over a year to dig two parallel shafts down to the coal at Morden. On April 19th, 1913, a good 8-foot seam was found at a depth of 600 feet. Two weeks later, with the two shafts nearly connected, to allow for ventilation, the island-wide miners' strike of 1913-14 halted all underground work. Years of frustration on the part of the miners finally bubbled over when their demands to be represented by their own unions were met by implacable opposition from the coal mine owners. The PCCM were not willing to negotiate a settlement with their miners so, unable to progress underground at Morden, the Company focused on above ground construction. Instead of wood or steel, fireproof and long-lasting reinforced concrete was to be used to construct both head frame and tipple for the new mine. This was in the early days of the use of reinforced concrete. GPS Coordinates Morden Tipple: 49° 5'40.82"N 123°52'21.94"W

It has been almost four decades since the idea of process erupted into the field of landscape architecture as a primary driver of design. Initially associated with hermeneutics—a poetics inherent to the medium of landscape and a conceptual framework to bridge the divide between ecology and design—the idea of process today remains largely unquestioned, applied uncritically regardless of social and political conditions. Anita Berrizbeitia MLA '87, professor of landscape architecture and chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture, will explore the limits of process and will argue for the need to define the term differently today in order to address the conditions of diverse contexts of urbanization. With a response by Michel Desvigne, Peter Louis Hornbeck Design Critic in Landscape Architecture. Anita Berrizbeitia is Professor of Landscape Architecture and Chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture. Her research focuses on design theories of modern and contemporary landscape architecture, the productive aspects of landscapes, and Latin American cities and landscapes. She was awarded the 2005/2006 Prince Charitable Trusts Rome Prize Fellowship in Landscape Architecture. A native of Caracas, Venezuela, she studied architecture at the Universidad Simon Bolivar before receiving a BA from Wellesley College and an MLA from the GSD. Berrizbeitia has taught design theory and studio, previously at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Her studios investigate innovative approaches to the conceptualization of public space, especially on sites where urbanism, globalization, and local cultural conditions intersect. She also leads seminars that focus on significant transformations in landscape discourse over the last three decades. From 1987 to 1993, she practiced with Child Associates, Inc., in Boston, where she collaborated on many award-winning projects. Berrizbeitia is co-author, with Linda Pollak, of Inside/Outside: Between Architecture and Landscape (Rockport, 1999), which won an ASLA Merit Award; author of Roberto Burle Marx in Caracas: Parque del Este, 1956-1961 (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2004), awarded the J.B. Jackson Book Prize in 2007 from the Foundation for Landscape Studies; and editor of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates: Reconstructing Urban Landscapes (Yale University Press, 2009), which received an ASLA Honor Award. Her essays have been published in Daniel Urban Kiley: The Early Gardens (Princeton Architectural Press), Recovering Landscape (Princeton Architectural Press), Roberto Burle Marx: Landscapes Reflected (Princeton Architectural Press), CASE: Downsview Park Toronto (Prestel), Large Parks (Princeton Architectural Press), Retorno al Paisaje (Evren), and Hargreaves Associates: Landscape Alchemy (ORO Publishers), as well as in magazines such as A+U. Michel Desvigne, Peter Louis Hornbeck Design Critic in Landscape Architecture, is a landscape architect internationally renowned for his rigorous and contemporary designs and for the originality and relevance of his research work. His projects, developed in more than twelve different countries, are regularly published in the international press. He works with leading architects including Herzog and de Meuron, Foster+Partners, Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, Christian de Portzamparc, I.M. Pei, Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers. He was awarded the French national Urbanism Grand Prize in 2011. Desvigne’s most renowned urban public spaces include Draï Eechelen Park (Luxemburg), Sammons Park in Dallas (US), the Saint Louis Art Museum (US), the New Qatar National Museum in Doha, Burgos Boulevard (Spain), Lyon Confluence 2 and Ile Seguin prefiguration garden (France). Recently Michel Desvigne has been awarded the leading role in the planning and implementation of the Paris-Saclay cluster (7700 ha), the landscape and urban plan for the development of Euralens (1200 ha), as well as the redevelopment of the old port of Marseille, awarded “prix de l’aménagement urbain” in 2013.

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.

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.
