Study: Endangered Species Sensitive to Climate Change Lack Protection

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The research published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change found 99.8% of the 459 U.S. animal species listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act are at risk of having their populations further diminished by a changing climate. The study’s lead author Aimee Delach, senior policy analyst for climate adaptation with Defenders of Wildlife, said she examined the agencies in charge of managing conservation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service.“To see whether they are saying, yes, we should have some climate change actions to protect the species,” Delach said, “and we found that only 18% of species had those – had any of those kinds of actions planned.”The agencies have not yet responded to the study. Delach said Florida already had a large number of endangered species that have been impacted by climate change, well before her research.Defenders of Wildlife included a free interactive web application with data results from the study. Delach said anyone concerned can easily look up which species are in jeopardy and what’s being done to protect them.“We evaluated 47 species from Florida. We found that climate change was discussed as a threat for 25 of them, not mentioned in 22 of them. But only 10 of those species were actions described,” she said.Delach noted Florida is about average compared with other states. She said her team’s review looked through all available government documents relating to species up to the end of 2018. She added there have been updates with additional data and information for 2019 that could show improvements.

The concept for this building was experimenting with a form of construction that could be transferred to other projects that the studio could do in the future, adapting it but not repeating it. We thus put the accent on the construction, finishes and development of a system, working on abstract and general ideas such as generating concrete ribbons and boxes to design the facade.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenWith a non-traditional response for a corner lot and rectangular proportions, the building is setback from the two front lines further in the short side than the long side.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis is a seminal project in terms of testing and experimenting with a technique which then would lead to a form of work, as the adoption of an overall height of 2.60 m. with a floor thickness of 0.40 m including beams and subflooring, where all building services and continuous ceiling are set. Here the use of interior and exterior framing begins to develop from floor to ceiling avoiding openings, and the resolution of the concrete structure as a material of the project, both in the classical sense of texture, as well as a defining element that allows the formation of an open floor from generating a “transition plan” with 0.60 m thick beams, average height, with variable widths between 0.60 and 1.00 m- that enable to vary the arrangement and section of the columns on the base and the rest of the building.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThis idea of an “extreme” open ground floor with circular columns, where the entire ceiling is at the same level and the halls don’t have any light fixtures and instead incorporate them into the railings, was the starting point for new projects that evolved from this model.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe ground floor contains the access, a machine room, elevator, and the service area of the first floor apartment. Also the garage where the height difference from the modulation of the housing plans absorbs the transition level which in this building is also adapted to obtain the proportions that we wanted in the facade.Save this picture!© read more

Trouble for EU Trade Talks

first_img SHARE Previous articleNew Seed Treatment Stewardship Guide AvailableNext articlePurdue Announces New Head of Department of Food Science Gary Truitt Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Trouble for EU Trade Talks The White House formally notified Congress of plans to begin trade talks with the European Union last week – but it appears there could already be trouble. EU leaders don’t want to include their restrictions on genetically modified crops and other regulations that keep U.S. farm products out of Europe in the discussions. President Obama says it’s difficult to imagine an agreement that doesn’t address those issues. That doesn’t necessarily mean the EU would end the restrictions. Some say it would be a victory if the EU clarified opaque rules and set timelines for considering products. But the top EU trade negotiator has signaled they won’t even compromise – stating that a future deal will not change existing legislation. Other European officials say agricultural differences should be discussed after a major trade deal is completed. French President Francois Hollande has called for excluding sensitive issues – including sanitary standards – from the talks. By Gary Truitt – Mar 25, 2013 President Obama has suggested that could be a deal-breaker. In a talk with his export council – the President said – there are certain countries whose agricultural sector is very strong, who tended to block at critical junctures the kinds of broad-based trade agreements that would make it a good deal for us. If one of the areas where we’ve got the greatest comparative advantage is cordoned off from an overall trade deal – he continued – it’s very hard to get something going. But the President is optimistic – stating he believes the EU is hungrier for a deal than they have been in the past. Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Trouble for EU Trade Talkslast_img

After victory for free speech in France, Turkey’s turn next?

first_img February 29, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 After victory for free speech in France, Turkey’s turn next? RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story Follow the news on France RSF_en “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Reporters Without Borders hails yesterday’s ruling by the Constitutional Council that a proposed law punishing the “denial of legally recognized genocides” is unconstitutional. It had been on the verge of being signed into law by President Sarkozy.“We are pleased that freedom of expression has not been sacrificed to a cause, no matter how just the cause may be,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The dangerous breach opened by this law has been closed for the time being but it has already damaged the credibility of the democratic values defended by France and those who defend human rights and the Armenian cause in Turkey.“We urge France’s politicians to renounce any intention of drafting an amended version of this law. Any thought of using legislation to establish an official history of past events should be ruled out for good after this precedent.“The Turkish authorities must now face their responsibilities. In the name of free speech, they have for weeks been condemning the French parliament’s meddling in history. Now they must prove that their comments were not just tailored to the circumstances by allowing Turkish citizens to mention the Armenian genocide without fear of being prosecuted. “Consistency requires that, at the very least, they immediately decriminalize two offences, insulting the Turkish nation (article 301 of the criminal code) and insulting the memory of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (Law 5816 of 25 July1951).“This decision does not exempt Turkey from finally confronting its own history; quite the contrary. Now that Ankara no longer has the excuse of ‘foreign meddling,’ it must remove the straightjacket of official history from the Turkish republic, open a debate about the fate of Turkey’s minorities and end the growing criminalization of journalistic activities.”Reporters Without Borders had written to France’s parliamentarians on 25 January urging them to ask the Constitutional Council to determine whether the proposed law was constitutional (see below). Inciting “discrimination, hatred or violence” continues to be punishable in France under article 24 of its 1881 press law.——26.01.2012 – Parliamentarians urged to refer genocide denial law to Constitutional CouncilDear Parliamentarians,Reporters Without Borders would like to reiterate to you its concerns about the proposed law aimed at combating “denial of legally recognized genocides,” which the Senate has just approved.The substance of this law has been much debated but there are grounds for questioning its constitutionality as well. The exchanges between the law’s supporters and opponents, involving leading figures and going to the very heart of our fundamental rights, have been so heated that even its supporters must realize that the Constitutional Council’s opinion is indispensible. We therefore urge you to demand its referral to the Council.There are four key aspects of the law that disturb us: a conflict with the principle of the right to free expression, a lack of proportionality between the offence and penalty, a violation of parliament’s competence and a lack of clarity in the wording.We fully share the desire for justice expressed by our friends who have campaigned for this law’s adoption and we fully understand the grief of victims’ descendants. Combating genocide denial and the hatred it fuels are obviously necessary and praiseworthy goals. But we must stress that they cannot be achieved at the price of violating the constitutional principle of free expression. Turning historical fact into an unassailable dogma imposed by the state opens the door to dangerous excesses. This is precisely what the Turkish authorities do when they punish those who refer to the existence of the 1915 Armenian genocide.What safeguards protect us from future excesses? Many genocides clamour for attention and if legislators “recognize” a dozen of them tomorrow, historical research will be turned into a minefield. Is genocide denial in the process of becoming “the new blasphemy,” as the jurist Henri Leclerc said ?Contrary to another constitutional principle, the penalties envisaged by this law are neither necessary nor proportionate. Envisaging a prison sentence for abusing freedom of expression contravenes the European Convention on Human Rights, the principles of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and other international obligations.There is another issue that justifies submitting this law to read more

Urgent appeal to international community after media owner murdered

first_img Reporters Without Borders issued an urgent appeal today to the international community for energetic measures towards the Somali government on behalf of the country’s journalists after yesterday’s murder in Mogadishu of Bashir Nur Gedi, the head of the Shabelle press group. Gedi is the eighth journalist to be slain this year in Somalia and the third leading media owner to be killed by unidentified gunmen in the capital.“The security situation in Mogadishu seems to be completely out of control,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Abandoned by the Somali authorities and their international partners, journalists have become key targets who are easily accessible. One after another, the country’s leading media owners are being eliminated. By taking no action in this climate of total impunity, those who could be in a position to stop these murders will end up becoming accomplices.”The press freedom organisation also strongly condemned the arbitrary arrests of journalists that continue to be carried out by local and federal authorities throughout the country.The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), the Reporters Without Borders partner organisation in Somalia, said Gedi was killed outside his home in south Mogadishu by a group of young gunmen aged from about 14 to 20. They shot him several times in the head and chest, killing him instantly, and then fled. One of Gedi’s senior employees, Radio Shabelle acting manager Jafar “Kukay” Mohammed, was himself the target of a murder attempt less than a month ago. The station marked Gedi’s murder by suspending programmes and broadcasting verses from the Koran.Five journalists were arrested yesterday, three of them in the northeastern region of Puntland, the stronghold of the transitional government’s current president, Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed. They were Radio Garowe news editor Isse Abdullahi Mohammed, the station’s manager, Abdi Farah Jama Mire, and one of its producers, Mohammad Dahir Yusuf. The authorities, who closed down the station, later released Mire and Yusuf, but they are still holding Mohammed.Local journalists said the arrests were prompted by Radio Garowe’s recent broadcast of an interview with Ahmed’s former security chief, who has broken with the president. During the interview, he announced that he would soon publish revelations about abuses committed by the government.The other two arrests were in Mogadishu. Abdullahi Mohammed “Black” Hassan, the editor of the daily newspaper Ayaamaha, was arrested at his office and was held overnight, for a total of 12 hours, without ever being told why. Abdirashid Abdulle Abikar, a NUSOJ member and Agence France-Presse stringer, was briefly detained while taking photos of injured people in the capital’s Medina hospital. Some of his equipment was confiscated by the security forces. The NUSOJ said the reasons for these arrests were unknown.
