The End of the Amazonia – full documentary video

The End of the Amazonia (full documentary)

Published on Sep 17, 2014

This is a metaphorical journey through the Amazon delta and the problems that threaten its future as great living river. We will see the work of archaeologists in Marajó Island, emerged right at the mouth of the river where there was a people whose culture still remains secret. We will also know how humans and wildlife adapt to this situation of antagonistic but complementary match between the river and the sea. In this mixed ecosystem, life is multiplied to the nth degree and the Amazon River says goodbye, filling our planet with life.

Scientists find huge magma reservoir in Yellowstone ‘supervolcano’ (+video)

Scientists find huge magma reservoir in Yellowstone ‘supervolcano’ (+video)

Beneath Yellowstone’s surface, seismologists at the University of Utah have discovered a huge reservoir of hot, partly molten rock – more evidence that Yellowstone with its earthquakes and geysers is a ‘supervolcano.’

30 Mile Long Blob of Magma Found Beneath Yellowstone Supervolcano – Inform

30 Mile Long Blob of Magma Beneath Yellowstone Supervolcano

Scientists and tourists have always known that Yellowstone National Park featured lively geologic wonders – regular small earthquakes and two-thirds of the world’s geysers, including Old Faithful – all constituting what’s known as a “supervolcano.”

Now, seismologists at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City have made a new discovery about Yellowstone’s subsurface plumbing, specifically a reservoir of hot, partly molten rock more than four times larger than the shallower magma chamber that scientists already knew about. To give that some perspective, the newly discovered reservoir would fill the Grand Canyon 11 times, compared with 2.5 times for the shallower chamber. Continue reading

OKRA (OCHRO) – Biblical foods of the world – By Lance Seeto – Fiji Times Online

I’ve always been a big believer that the ancient fruits and vegetables found in ancient religious and biblical texts have a special role to play in our diet.

Not only did our early ancestors enjoy them, but most of them have special medicinal value that has helped protect against disease for thousands of years.

Take okra. Also known as bhindi, lady’s finger and gumbo, okra is a nutritional powerhouse used throughout history for both medicinal and culinary purposes.  Once loved by the Egyptians and still used in many dishes today (such as the famous Southern American gumbo dish), this pod-producing, tropical vegetable dates back over 3500 years.

Why China and India face a marriage crisis – The Economist – video

Why China and India face a marriage crisis

Published on Apr 23, 2015 – The Economist video

China and India – home to a third of humanity – both face a marriage crisis that will last for generations. A mere five years ago marriage patterns were normal in the two countries.

Now in China 50m ‘guanggun’ – ‘bare branches’ – look doomed to bachelor-dom, while in India 500 year-old laws are being revised to allow men to marry out of caste, village and state.
What has lead to this marriage squeeze?

Technology –  Does the digital era herald the end of history? – BBC
What would the world be like if we lost all our digital data?
Data storage centres are mushrooming around the world. But how secure are they?

Data storage centres are mushrooming around the world. But how secure are they?

Has the digital transformation of our society put the future of recorded history in jeopardy? Many internet observers fear so. But why, and what do they mean?

Since the 1980s our lives have grown increasingly digital, and with dizzying speed.

Most of our photos, videos, conversations, research and writings are now stored as strings of ones and noughts on local computers or in data centres distributed throughout the world.

Data specialist EMC estimates that in 2013 the world contained about 4.4 zettabytes (4.4 trillion gigabytes) of data. By 2020, it expects this to have risen tenfold.

History, in other words, has gone online.   Continue reading

Saturday, 25 April 2015  – By Santiago Navarro F., Renata Bessi and Translated by Miriam Taylor, Truthout | Report

“Indigenous people are moving toward complete disappearance. This law will leave us in the hands of the multinational corporations.”

Indigenous leaders from the five regions of Brazil traveled for days to an encampment convoked by the Coordinating Body of Brazil’s indigenous people (APIB), which took place from April 13 to 16 in the federal district in Brasilia. The district is both a geographical center and a center of power in Brazil, as it is where the three branches of government are headquartered.   Continue reading

Success or Failure: Which is More Destructive?

Success or failure: which is more destructive? This is a question raised by Lao-tzu in the Tao Te Ching, simply translated as The Book of the Way. For a society that views success as a goal in life, such a question seems ridiculous. Coming from the Ancient Chinese philosopher, it’s a question that merits consideration.

Like me, I’m sure you’ve have your share of failure along this journey of life. The second novel I’m currently working on is inspired by a period along the way when I messed up big time. It changed the direction of my life, eventually bringing me to this place and moment in time.

Through our failures, we learn what works and what doesn’t. We become more discerning in our relationships…

Forcing Black Men Out of Society – Editorial – NY Times

An analysis in The Times — “1.5 Million Missing Black Men” — showed that more than one in every six black men in the 24-to-54 age group has disappeared from civic life, mainly because they died young or are locked away in prison. This means that there are only 83 black men living outside of jail for every 100 black women — in striking contrast to the white population, where men and women are about equal in numbers.

This astounding shortfall in black men translates into lower marriage rates, more out-of-wedlock births, a greater risk of poverty for families and, by extension, less stable communities. The missing men should be a source of concern to political leaders and policy makers everywhere.

While the 1.5 million number is startling, it actually understates the severity of the crisis that has befallen African-American men since the collapse of the manufacturing and industrial centers, which was quickly followed by the “war on drugs” and mass imprisonment, which drove up the national prison population more than sevenfold beginning in the 1970s.  Continue reading

Raising a black son in America + The danger of silence – 2 TED videos by Clint Smith

Clint Smith: How to raise a black son in America

Published on Apr 23, 2015

This was crystallized one night for a young Clint Smith, who was playing with water guns in a dark parking lot with his white friends. In a heartfelt piece, the poet paints the scene of his father’s furious and fearful response.
