‘Roadless Rule’ Sees New Threats to Keeping Wild Places Wild

first_img Please enter your comment! The intent of the 2001 Roadless Rule has been to provide lasting protection for inventoried roadless areas within the National Forest system, including several forests in Florida. (Pixabay) LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Alaska’s struggling timber industry hopes to revive large-scale industrial logging known for damaging animal habitat and salmon streams. Lexi Hackett, who runs a family fishing operation in southeastern Alaska, is among 200 fishers warning the administration about the threat to their livelihood and the environment if protections from road-building and other development are removed.“There’s no good reason to roll back the Roadless Rule at this point,” she said. “It’s very confusing that this is even on the chopping block. People just say, ‘Development, development, development, more jobs,’ and people think it’s that simple – but it’s not.”The Roadless Rule, which covers some 60 million acres in 40 states and territories, applies to parts of Florida’s Apalachicola, Ocala and Osceola national forests. When it was being debated in 2001, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission saw the rule as resulting in positive benefits for native wildlife and plants in the state.Some have complained that the roadless rule has choked economic growth. However, Mike Dombeck, who served as U.S. Forest Service chief when the Roadless Rule was first proposed, said he thinks the current administration should focus its energy on boosting the recreation and tourism industries that make up 26% of the economy and jobs in that part of Alaska.“So that, compared to the 1% of the timber industry, really should tell us that the future of the Tongass National Forest is really about recreation, tourism, clean water, and keeping wild places wild,” he said.Tribal organizations and others opposed to the rollback will testify today before a House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands. A public hearing on rescinding the Roadless Rule for the Tongass is set for Thursday, also in Washington, and public comments are being taken until Dec. 17.The public-hearing schedule is online at fs.usda.gov, the Roadless Rule is at fs.fed.us, and information on the subcommittee hearing is at naturalresources.house.gov.

Colin Slade finishes brilliant Highlanders team try against the Sharks

first_imgMonday May 6, 2013 Colin Slade finishes brilliant Highlanders team try against the Sharks The Highlanders scored one of the tries of the season as they picked up their long overdue first win of the 2013 Super Rugby campaign. They beat the Sharks 25-22 on Saturday in a match that produced a thrilling second half of rugby. Dunedin breathed a sigh of relief after eighty-odd minutes that resulted in the Highlanders’ first victory in 12 games, the longest losing streak by any New Zealand franchise.It was a special occasion for Brad Thorn, who was playing his 100th game of Super Rugby, after playing 92 for the Crusaders before making the move back from Dublin to join the Highlanders.He ended the game off the field after having been yellow carded under relentless pressure from the Sharks, but it was all smiles at the final whistle, well into added time, as Hosea Gear smashed Keegan Daniel five meters out as the visitors came with wave after wave of attack. “I’ve got to say, I haven’t been that excited for just a round-robin game in my whole career. It was a massive moment,” delighted 37-year-old Thorn said post match.Each side scored three tries, all of high quality, but Colin Slade landed an extra penalty, proving the difference. It was Slade who crossed earlier in the game for a sensational try, following a great break from Ben Smith and some superb support play by prop Chris King.The Sharks scored a great try themselves, from the restart, including multiple phases of play and about five minutes of possession, but this one from Slade was without a doubt the try of the match. View the Sharks try that was scored by Meyer Bosman hereThe Sharks try scored by Meyer Bosman directly after Colin Slade’s. This one started at the restart, then went back and forth for five minutes before Bosman finally dived over. Completely different to Slade’s try, but also very enjoyable to watch. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Powell Street House occupies a compact site in the side streets of South Yarra, in a pocket characterised by a visually diverse streetscape. The existing 1930’s brick duplex in a restrained Art Deco style, comprised a ground floor and first floor apartment, each sharing the same floor plan, and each with its own external access.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellOur clients, an architecture and design writer and his partner, with an eclectic collection of art works and furniture, had been living in the property for a number of years, and wished to unite and augment the two dwellings to form a cohesive single residence with a private aspect.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe existing house had a quiet interior and muted light, and the design was developed in response to this, with a deliberate quietness, and the creation of long diagonal views through the existing shallow floor plan.  The design approach was to retain and respect the existing fabric wherever possible, with the new elements treated as interventions which were clearly distinguishable from the original fabric, whilst being respectful to it.  Minimising structural alterations to the original fabric was also a means of achieving a cost-effective outcome on a limited budget.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellDining, kitchen and laundry facilities were located in a new addition to the rear of the site, with a polished concrete floor. The kitchen and dining area enjoy a northern aspect to the property’s rear courtyard, via a steel framed window wall, which describes a serrated profile in plan, and delivers an intriguing quality of light to the newly created space. This ground floor addition forms a double height volume, which incorporates a carefully located high level window, and was conceived as a quiet space, with ambiguous connections between the existing and the new, the outside and the inside.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellA compact central staircase, in dark stained timber and raw steel, connects the two previously separated levels of the building, and was located within the former bathroom space to each level, to minimise the need for internal alterations. Bathrooms were designed with a selection of materials evocative of the 1930’s architecture of the original house, including basins tiled in-situ, and the use of traditional shower curtains, selected for their modest yet sensuous qualities.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe addition, and the new architectural elements generally, read as insertions within the existing fabric, and connect enigmatically with the materiality of the original.  Where openings have been formed or modified, such alterations have been executed in a way which leaves clear traces of the original. Views were limited and curated through the new steel windows utilising a combination of clear and opaque glazing, using narrow reeded patterned glass, sympathetic to the original era of the house.  Internal colours were selected to connect the spaces and respond to the varying volumes and light conditions throughout the house.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessKutta Estate House / EDOM ArchitectureSelected ProjectsRE-NATURE ROMEIdeas Share Lead Architect: Robert Simeoni Powell Street House / Robert Simeoni Architects Photographs:  Derek Swalwell CopyHouses, Renovation•South Yarra, Australia CopyAbout this officeRobert Simeoni ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSouth YarraOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on May 10, 2021Cite: “Powell Street House / Robert Simeoni Architects” 10 May 2021.

‘Trayvon 2’ fight for justice

first_imgOakland, Calif. — More than 75 supporters packed the courtroom on Jan. 13 to support “the Trayvon 2,” Hannibal and Tanzeen, who were arrested during the massive protests after the George Zimmerman verdict, which let Zimmerman off scot-free for the killing of Trayvon Martin. Hannibal and Tanzeen, who, significantly, are both men of color and Muslims, are the only ones still facing charges.The preliminary hearing was rescheduled to March 6 at the request of the prosecution, after the failure of their main witness, the arresting officer, to show, despite being subpoenaed by the defense. The judge was forced to issue a bench warrant for the Oakland Police Department officer to assure his presence in March!After court was adjourned, the supporters gathered in the hallway to hear the Trayvon 2 address them. Hannibal observed: “They think we’re going to bow down and take a plea. It’s important for other people to witness this … important to share this moment as a community. We can have all these people who can tell the truth. I’m confident, based on the support we’re getting, that we’re going to see justice. We’re out here for Trayvon Martin, Kenneth Harding, Ranisha McBride and many others. It’s such a beautiful thing that you all are here.”Tanzeen added some serious notes about what was required to win: “We also need money and organizers.” Donations can be made for their legal defense and support at wepay.com/donations/1872666567.Supporters are asked to pack the courtroom again at their next hearing date of March 6 at 8 a.m. in the Wiley Manuel Courthouse on 7th and Washington streets in Oakland.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

“Ghost in the Shell” is a transparent adaptation

first_imgReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin TCU VGP Video Finale (Ep. 25 – Call of Duty WWII, Cluster Trucks and more) Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ printA remake of the 1997 animated film, “Ghost in the Shell” manages to capture the look of the original but not the substance.The film follows the cyber-enhanced Major (Scarlett Johansson) as she must investigate a series of murders and hunt down a new type of enemy.In this image released by Paramount Pictures, Scarlett Johansson, left, and Michael Pitt appear in a scene from, “Ghost in the Shell.” (Jasin Boland/Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures via AP)As an adaptation, “Ghost” does a good job introducing the world of the film and making key aspects of the plot accessible to general audiences. Unfortunately, the film tries to blend two separate storylines from the original series, which keeps both from having enough time to fully develop. This also causes some pacing issues when the film switches from fast-paced action to exposition-ridden scenes.The issues with the plot are further emphasized due to Johansson’s wooden performance. Johansson never quite clicks in her role, acting as robotic as possible despite the film being focused around her humanity. The supporting cast, however, puts forth surprisingly good performances despite not being given much to work with.In this image released by Paramount Pictures, Scarlett Johansson appears in a scene from, “Ghost in the Shell.” (Jasin Boland/Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures via AP)While her performance detracts, Johansson’s Major does have decent development and backstory. Bits of her character arc come across as confusing, but it’s never enough to drag the story down and works to make Major a more likable character. The rest of the cast, unfortunately, are given rather one-note roles and relegated to the background, where they continuously pop in and out of the film.Story troubles aside, “Ghost” does an incredible job of making the world feel real. The mixture of CGI, makeup and prosthetics blend well to make everything more believable. This is further enhanced by the visually interesting sets, with each feeling unique thanks to different combinations of light and color.In this image released by Paramount Pictures, Scarlett Johansson, left, and Chin Han appear in a scene from, “Ghost in the Shell.” (Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures via AP)Overall, fans of the series may be able to overlook the film’s issues, but those not familiar with the source material won’t be won over. While it looks incredible visually, this adaptation of “Ghost in the Shell” lacks a lot of the heart and moral questions that made the series popular.Verdict:Despite its stunning visuals, story issues and a lacking performance by Johansson make “Ghost in the Shell” feel empty.5.5/10 Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Sizzle Reel (Ep. 23 – Star Wars Celebration, DC Rumors and more) + posts Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ Twitter Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ ReddIt Twitter Previous articleTCU VGP (Ep. 22 – Scorpio Specs, Persona Impressions and more)Next articleSizzle Reel (Ep. 22 – The Walking Dead, 13 Reasons Why and more) Chris Garcia RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ TCU VGP (Ep. 24 – Battlefront Details, Telltale’s Guardians and more) Facebook Chris Garcia Linkedin TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Sizzle Reel Finale (Ep. 24 – Teen Titans, Star Trek: Discovery and more) Chris Garcia is a senior film and journalism double major from Midland, Texas.

(Credit: NASA/JPL/Caltech)The new cloud images, which were taken in March, didn’t just provide picturesque views, but also piqued the interest of researchers.Clouds are a rare phenomenon in the thin, dry atmosphere of Mars, according to JPL. And the ones recently photographed are even rarer, as they formed much earlier in the Martian year and much higher in the atmosphere than normal.Scientists first noticed the unusual weather phenomenon last Martian year, or two years ago for Earthlings, JPL said in a written statement. So when the same unusual clouds began to form in recent months, the Curiosity team was eagerly poised to study it, poinint Curiosity’s cameras skyward.The Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Curiosity Mars Rover took images of shimmering clouds in the Martian sky in March of 2021. (Credit: NASA/JPL/Caltech)“What resulted are images of wispy puffs filled with ice crystals that scattered light from the setting Sun, some of them shimmering with color,” the statement said. “More than just spectacular displays, such images help scientists understand how clouds form on Mars and why these recent ones are different.”Scientists suspect the reason for the high-altitude clouds may be that they are formed from frozen carbon dioxide, or dry ice, rather that more usual Martian clouds, which are made of water ice.The Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Curiosity Mars Rover took images of shimmering clouds in the Martian sky in March of 2021. (Credit: NASA/JPL/Caltech)“Viewed just after sunset, their ice crystals catch the fading light, causing them to appear to glow against the darkening sky. These twilight clouds, also known as ‘noctilucent’ — Latin for ‘night shining’ — clouds, grow brighter as they fill with crystals, then darken after the Sun’s position in the sky drops below their altitude,” according to the JPL statement.“Even more stunning are iridescent, or ‘mother of pearl’ clouds,” the statement added.They are believed to result when particles in a cloud all form at nearly the same size, explained Mark Lemmon, who works as an atmospheric scientist at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado.“I always marvel at the colors that show up: reds and greens and blues and purples,” he said. “It’s really cool to see something shining with lots of color on Mars.”More information on the Mars Curiosity Rover is available online at mars.nasa.gov/msl.last_img read more
