The scourge of plastic pollution has gone from being an issue of awareness to one of alarm, as our roadsides, greenfields and oceans are increasingly stricken with bags and bottles that will take centuries to break down.As more people become aware of the urgency to reduce global consumption, Brock University is constantly striving to do its part — one bottle at a time.Earth Day, coming up this Sunday, April 22, is an annual event, but some of Brock’s efforts are year-round initiatives as the University constantly reviews its conservation activities and sets its sights on future goals.For instance, when Brock began installing water filling stations in 2014 as a way to discourage use of disposable plastic bottles, there were only eight stations for people to find. Today, there are 44.In those four years, the program has kept the equivalent of more than 4.3 million bottles — or roughly 90 metric tonnes of plastic — out of landfills or ditches. This includes 930,343 bottles from the past year alone.Brock has introduced four new filling stations since April 2017, and plans to install more in the coming year in hopes of diverting a million bottles a year by Earth Day 2019.The sustainability efforts don’t end with water.On an institutional scale, Brock recently entered the second phase of a massive multi-year project to update its co-generating power system, replacing 25-year-old facilities with modern equipment to produce electricity, heat and cooling for the campus. When finished, the new system will consume 26 per cent less fuel and reduce annual nitrous oxide gas emissions from 55 tonnes to eight, and hydrocarbons from 15 tonnes to four.Other on-campus initiatives promote recycling, reusing or composting waste. Last year Brock diverted some 1,372 tonnes of waste from landfills, including 260 tonnes of organics, 414 tonnes of paper and nearly one tonne of disposable coffee cups.The on-campus sustainability initiatives are now being spearheaded by a recently formed partnership between Facilities Management and Environmental Sustainability Research Centre. The two Brock entities have come together in an effort to engage the school community in year-round activities meant to help reduce the University’s environmental impact.“We’ve done a lot and are committed to sustainability, but as a community we still have a lot to do,” said Scott Johnstone, Associate Vice-President, Facilities Management. “Every person on campus can be a part of it by making positive choices, whether that’s choosing the right bin for recycling, turning off a light when they leave an office or using the water filling stations instead of buying disposable bottles.”Johnstone said a new long-term sustainability plan for Brock should be completed by the fall, and will map out future projects and goals.Meantime, a new display in the Thistle corridor just outside the Matheson Learning Commons illustrates how garbage is impacting our planet, and how we can make a difference by disposing of it properly.The show includes poetry, drawings and art made from litter found in the nearby woodlands — created in part by a group of children from the Forest School on campus. The display is based on a three-year study on the implementation of the school, which sees preschool-aged children immersed in nature by spending two mornings each week in an outdoor classroom. Led by Debra Harwood, an associate professor in the Faculty of Education, the research examines the experiences of children and educators in an outdoor learning and teaching environment.The public display examines the ways in which “children’s immersion in nature provokes opportunities for thinking, learning and acting for sustainability,” Harwood said.On display until mid-May outside of the Matheson Learning Commons is a showcase of environmental artwork created by children from the Forest School on campus. Debra Harwood, an associate professor in the Faculty of Education, helped to put the project together. read more
Emily Clark follows through on her swing, hitting a double against Wright State on Sep.24. Credit: Gretchen Rudolph | For The LanternThe No. 22 Ohio State softball team begins its road series with Northwestern fresh off sweeping a doubleheader against Penn State Wednesday. Junior second baseman Emily Clark, as well as Ohio State head coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly, said that the Buckeyes (26-8, 7-4 Big Ten) can move into the Northwestern (23-13, 6-5 Big Ten) series confident in their ability to beat up on solid pitching given what they did against the Nittany Lions.“It’s good that we faced pretty decent pitching,” Clark said. “We did well and we succeeded on that, so I think that will give us confidence as this weekend approaches.”Northwestern will enter the series with a pair of starting pitchers who maintain ERAs below 4.00 in Kenna Wilkey and Morgan Newport. Overall, the team has found success in the circle, recording a 3.99 team ERA in 235.1 innings of work.Kovach Schoenly said Northwestern brings more to the table than just its pitching staff, however. She said Northwestern is a team more than capable of scoring runs in bulk and that the two high-powered offenses could be in for a back-and-forth battle.But again reflecting upon the Penn State series, Kovach Schoenly believes her team has what it takes to come out on top against the Wildcats.“The way we battled back when Penn State scored every time and then we would score, and we knew that we just had to keep scoring,” Kovach Schoenly said. “I feel like it’s going to be those types of games.”Clark also agreed saying the series will be “a slugging fest.”Though Ohio State brings an impressive offense to the matchup, Northwestern has the Buckeyes beat soundly in total offensive production. Northwestern has scored 271 runs compared to Ohio State’s 188. But the Buckeyes aren’t looking at the numbers feeling too anxious about their chances.“They run a lot so that plays into our game,” Kovach Schoenly said. “Becca [Gavin] is a really strong catcher so we’ll be up for that challenge.” Kovach Schoenly said that although she would love to have her shutout this juggernaut offense, she anticipates Northwestern’s ability to put the ball into play will force her team to make some big plays for any shutout to be possible. “They may score a run,” Kovach Schoenly said, “It’s kind of one of those concepts of, we’ll bend but don’t break, like giving one run, not four, so keeping it small each inning.”Kovach Schoenly said Northwestern has an offense similar to Ohio State, given the comparable ability to hit the long ball.“I just know that they can hit,” Kovach Schoenly said. “They’re kind of similar to our offense in that they have some kids that can hit the long ball.”Ohio State currently has 45 home runs so far this season, led by junior shortstop Lilli Piper with 16, while Northwestern has 30, led by freshman utility player Rachel Lewis’ 12.The two teams will battle it out starting at 4:30 p.m. Friday at Sharon J. Drysdale Field in Evanston, Illinois. read more

Les Français font plus attention à leur alimentationFrance – Les résultats du Baromètre santé nutrition 2008 indiquent que la population française surveille mieux son alimentation, tout en surveillant son budget alimentaire. Toutefois, l’envie de manger varié n’empêche pas, et renforce même la tentation des plats préparés.Plus des trois quarts de la population considèrent manger plus équilibré qu’auparavant. Pour beaucoup, cela signifie avoir une alimentation variée, avec plus de fruits et légumes et moins de gras. Les Français privilégient une alimentation bonne pour la santé mais aussi pour le budget, ce qui ne favorise pas la préparation “maison” des repas.À lire aussiVoici pourquoi il faut éviter les aliments ultra-transformésDepuis la précédente enquête de 2002, les critères de qualité et de variété intéressent moins la population qui privilégie désormais le prix des produits comme critère de choix. Si la consommation de fruits et légumes a augmenté, elle reste encore insuffisante. Un peu moins de 12% des Français âgés de 12 à 75 ans consomment au moins cinq fruits et légumes par jour. Le prix des fruits est un obstacle pour 43% des sondés qui disent ne pas en consommer assez. Par contre, la consommation de légumes est en hausse importante, passant de 15 à 37% entre les deux enquêtes. Les plats préparés font de plus en plus d’adeptes : 47% des personnes disent en manger au moins une fois par semaine, contre 32% en 2002. L’étude montre aussi que les Français consomment moins d’alcool, utilisent moins de sel et de matières grasses à table, et perdent leur mauvaise habitude du grignotage. Par contre, ils consomment de plus en plus de boissons sucrées et ne pratiquent pas assez d’activités physiques.Le 26 janvier 2010 à 10:15 • Emmanuel Perrin read more

Denali wolf (Photo courtesy of National Park service)A spring count shows a slight increase in number of wolves in Denali National Park.Listen now”Last year’s was at 72 animals. And this year is at 76,” Park science and resources team leader Dave Shirokauer said.Shirokauer says the aerial count is still below average, but continues to rebound from a record low of 49 wolves in 2016. The state estimated last month that up to eight park wolves were trapped or shot outside Denali’s northeast boundary this past winter. Shirokauer says the take included the alpha male of the Riley Creek Pack, a wolf family group which was commonly seen last summer by visitors along the nearby park road.“So we’re not really sure what’s going to happen yet this year. If they happen to get a new alpha male or a new male steps up and they breed this spring, then they may contribute to wolf leading opportunities. Too early to tell,” Shirokauer said.“The kill of one park wolf along the boundary has led to the disintegration of one of the most viewed groups in the park,” Biologist and wildlife advocate Rick Steiner said.Steiner, of Anchorage, suspects the Riley Creek pack will disperse, diminishing the chances of seeing them along the park road, a situation similar to what happened three years ago to the once commonly viewed East Fork Pack.”The alpha female from East Fork was killed and that led to the ultimate complete disintegration of the pack,” Steiner said.Steiner and other wildlife advocates have long pushed the state to ban wolf harvest outside the park’s northeast boundary, where wolves who live near the park road often cross onto state land. The most recent peak in Denali’s wolf population occurred between 2006 and 2008, when the boundary area was closed to wolf killing. The buffer was rescinded by the state game board in 2010. read more
.Poachers, with the help of local politicians, are poisoning tigers inside the Sundarbans.The racketeers use poisoned venison as bait to poach tigers, reveals a study jointly conducted by the Dhaka University and Jahangirnagar University in association with two UK universities and a USA university.The study published in January this year also said the racketeers used a lethal poison named Furadan is one of the most toxic pesticides.The pesticideis are being widely used in agriculture in Bangladesh.The research on the tiger population in the Sundarbans did not unveil who the smugglers were and the tigers were being smuggled from the areas. It only detailed out how tigers are being killed inside the Sundarbans.But a report submitted to Bangladesh government by Interpol unveiled names behind the tiger poaching.The report titled ‘Tiger killing inside Sundarbans’, mentioned names of 32 politicians and local powerful persons, who backed the killing of the tigers and were involved with the smuggling.The report also mentioned the names of a ruling Awami League MP from Satkhira-4 constituency, SM Jaglul, and four AL-backed union parishad members and two BNP-backed UP members in the areas.Corpses of the tigers are mainly being smuggled to China, Thailand and Indonesia, the report added.Asked about the matter, environment and forests minister Anwar Hossain Manju said, “We have deployed several law enforcing agencies including RAB and police in the Sundarbans. But it’s not possible to ensure surveillance everywhere in the big forest.”In his study, researcher Abdul Aziz collected six corpses of deer poisoned with pesticide inside Sundarbans between 2014 and 2016.He also recovered body parts of tigers near Dobeki forest police outpost at Satkhira range of the Sundarbans.Abdul Aziz said the tiger was baited with poisoned venison.Forest division, with a private organisation Wild Team, recovered corpses of 30 tigers from different parts of the country between 2011 and 2016.Out of 22 tiger skins, which were recovered during the period, a single skin was found with a bullet mark.Researcher Abdul Aziz assumed that rest of the tigers were poisoned to death.Abdul Aziz told Prothom Alo that fishermen with the help of forest robbers put down the poisoned bait for killing tigers.The forest division’s Khulna circle forest officer Amir Hossain Chowdhury also chorused with the researcher and said some racketeers put poisoned venison as bait to poach tigers.In past one decade, the number of the tigers in the Sundarbans has been reduced by half.In 2004, UNDP and Bangladesh’s forest division identified 440 members of the tiger population using pugmark method.Another report in 2015 said the tiger population had reduced to 106.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Toriqul Islam read more
One of the survivors of a boat carrying migrants sunk in the Mediterranean during the night of 9 and 10 May, rests at a shelter in the Tunisian coastal city of Zarzis on 11 May 2019. Photo: AFPA Bangladeshi farmer watched dozens drown beside him in the Mediterranean before “God sent us the fishermen”, who saved him from the cold waters and took him to Tunisia.Ahmed Bilal was one of 16 survivors of the shipwreck, in which an estimated 60 people died on Friday while trying to reach Italy.”I can’t stop myself crying,” said Bilal, who lost two younger relatives in the accident, from a Red Crescent emergency centre in the southern Tunisian coastal town of Zarzis.The 30-year-old said he began his journey to Europe six months ago, flying with three others to Dubai and onwards to Istanbul in Turkey.From there they took another flight to the Libyan capital Tripoli, Bilal said, where they joined around 80 other Bangladeshis and were held in a room in western Libya for three months.”I already thought I would die in Libya,” he said. “We had food only once a day, sometimes less. There was one toilet for 80 people. We could not wash — only our teeth — and we were crying, begging for food.”Survivors of a boat carrying migrants that sunk in the Mediterranean during the night of 9 and 10 May, gather at a shelter in the Tunisian coastal city of Zarzis on 11 May 2019. Photo: AFPMedical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) estimates 6,000 migrants in Libya are being detained “in conditions that generally fall well below international standards”.The situation has worsened since eastern commander Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive to take Tripoli last month, with more than 450 people killed due to fighting linked to that military campaign, according to the World Health Organisation.’I have nothing now’Bilal had no idea what he would face when he embarked on the journey from Bangladesh’s Sylhet region, where he had seen villagers with relatives in Europe live a better life.After his family sold their land, the father of two paid a Bangladeshi smuggler nicknamed “Good Luck” around $7,000 (6,230 euros) to arrange the trip.”He said we would have a better life and we believed him. I am sure most of the people he sends die on the way”, said Bilal.He and the other migrants left northwestern Libya on a large boat, before being transferred to a smaller one.Manzour Mohammed Metwella, an Egyptian who was on board, said the boat “started to sink almost immediately.””We swam all night,” said the 21-year-old.Survivors said all the passengers were men, with 51 from Bangladesh, three Egyptians, several Moroccans, Chadians and other Africans.After seeing people drown in front of his eyes, Bilal said he “was losing hope myself, but God sent us the fishermen who saved us.”The fishermen were able to rescue 14 Bangladeshis, one Moroccan, and the Egyptian Metwella.”If the Tunisian fishermen hadn’t seen them, there wouldn’t have been any survivors and we would have never known about this” boat sinking, said Mongi Slim from the Red Crescent.Survivors of a boat carrying migrants that sunk in the Mediterranean during the night of 9 and 10 May, gather at a shelter in the Tunisian coastal city of Zarzis on 11 May 2019.

Share David J. Phillip/APTyler Holland guides his bike through the water as winds from Tropical Storm Barry push water from Lake Pontchartrain over the seawall Saturday, July 13, 2019, in Mandeville, La.Though Tropical Depression Barry failed to unleash catastrophic flooding in New Orleans, it still swamped parts of Louisiana with up to 17 inches (43 centimeters) of rain and transformed part of the Mississippi Delta into “an ocean.”Barry was downgraded from a tropical storm on Sunday afternoon, but its torrential rains continued to pose a threat Monday. Much of Louisiana and Mississippi were under flash-flood watches, as were parts of Arkansas, eastern Texas, western Tennessee and southeastern Missouri.Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards urged residents to be cautious as they ventured outside after a weekend in which many had sheltered indoors.He said he was “extremely grateful” that the storm had not caused the catastrophic floods that had earlier been forecast. More than 90 people had been rescued in 11 parishes, but there were no reports of weather-related fatalities, Edwards said.“This was a storm that obviously could have played out very, very differently,” he said. “We’re thankful that the worst-case scenario did not happen.”– / 2But Barry was still proving disastrous in parts of Louisiana, particularly in areas north of Lake Charles where streams and rivers were on the rise. Up to 17 inches (43 centimeters) has fallen in isolated spots in that part of the state, the National Weather Service stated in one of numerous flash flood warnings issued Monday.In Mississippi, forecasters said 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rain had fallen in parts of Jasper and Jones counties, with several more inches possible. An additional 3 to 5 inches (8 to 13 centimeters) was expected Monday in the western part of the state, including parts of the rural Delta that have been flooded for months from the Mississippi River and its backwaters.“The South Delta has become an ocean,” Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant wrote on Twitter on Monday.He’s calling on the federal government to build pumps to drain water from the confluence of the Yazoo and Mississippi Rivers. The EPA shelved the project in 2008 amid concerns about wetlands and wildlife. The Trump administration has said it might reconsider that decision.Forecasters had warned of a continued threat of heavy rains into Monday as the center of the storm trudged inland. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Sunday parts of south-central Louisiana could still have rainfall totals of up to 12 inches (30 centimeters), with isolated pockets of 15 inches (38 centimeters).New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said Sunday the city was “beyond lucky” that rainfall there fell well short of early predictions of a deluge that could overwhelm the city’s pumping systems.“We were spared,” she said at a news conference, while noting the city was ready to help nearby parishes hit harder.About 51,000 customers in Louisiana, 1,800 customers in Mississippi and another 1,700 customers in Arkansas were without power Sunday night, according to poweroutage.us.Edwards thanked the public for taking officials’ warnings seriously over the weekend, but he also reminded residents that it is still relatively early in the Atlantic’s hurricane season.“Based on what we’ve experienced, I think (we will be) even better prepared for next time — and we do know that there will be a next time,” Edwards said.Drew reported from Raleigh, North Carolina.

A later scene of the show showed Andrew in a hot tub, where he was briefly joined by Courtney who promptly licked Andrew’s cheek in order to ‘mark her territory.’Comedian Dapper Laughs, who was also in the hot tub insisted that there was a mutual level of attraction between the pair, saying to Andrew: “You’re in denial.”Despite the mixed signals from the pair, fans were less ambiguous with their support for the growing relationship, taking to Twitter in spades.Another wrote: “I’m starting to think that Andrew does fancy Courtney”“I’m madly shipping Andrew and Courtney,” a third wrote.Andrew has previously discussed his mixed feelings towards Courtney, begging Big Brother to keep him sober around the drag queen just in case.During Friday’s episode, Andrew described to his fellow housemates how he feels about Courtney both in and out of drag.He said: “When I see Courtney and I go, ‘Whoa’, you know, good looking with the bum implants with the fake boobs and the hair and it all looks great.“But deep down I know it’s still Shane under there, but Courtney has the same sense of humour, the same personality as Shane.”Courtney has won over the hearts of many fans and is now the favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Celebrity Big Brother: Andrew Brady kisses Shane Jenek and admits Courtney Act crushCelebrity Big Brother: Courtney Act becomes the first star nominated for eviction this weekCelebrity Big Brother: Andrew Brady was saved from eviction and fans were delightedPINK NEWS- Celebrity Big Brother viewers and contestants alike have been left amazed by the growing relationship between drag queen Courtney Act and straight Apprentice star Andrew Brady.The Saturday night episode of Celebrity Big Brother showed new levels of flirting between Courtney and Andrew, prompting housemates and fans alike to speculate. When asked about the tension between the two, Courtney -known as Shane when out of drag- initially denied the possibility of any future relationship.She said: “I think he likes girls and I think whilst Courtney is an attractive girl he is intellectually aware that there’s a difference.”Andrew admitted to having a crush on Courtney during Friday’s episode, prior to a scene that showed Andrew and Shane kissing at the prompting of another housemate.When asked about the kiss that occurred between Andrew and the non-dragged up Shane on Friday, the drag star dismissed the idea that the kiss held emotional meaning, saying: “Lads do that sort of thing.”Courtney continued: “I’m not living with that expectation, I just enjoy having a friend and a partner in crime. I don’t want to be the creepy unrequited love friend.”During a scene where the housemates were getting ready for the evening, Andrew described the dragged-up Courtney as ‘eye candy’ and ‘a hottie.’Later in the show, the other contestants on Celebrity Big Brother discussed the blossoming relationship after Courtney and Andrew were absent from the main group for over an hour.The housemates agreed that a relationship between Courtney/Shane and Andrew was highly likely and that ‘he’s the only one who doesn’t know.’They then acknowledged that such a relationship would be a huge moment for Andrew, who identifies as straight.“I don’t think we should point it out because it’s a big step for Andrew.”In a telling following conversation with fellow housemate Malika Haqq, Courtney said that whilst nothing had happened between her and Andrew that evening, she was playing ‘the long game’ with the Apprentice star. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) read more
Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall BEIJING (AP) — China urged the Philippines on Tuesday to ditch its attempt to solve South China Sea territorial disputes with an international tribunal and instead negotiate with Beijing directly, following the arbitration panel’s latest request for input from China.The Philippines has asked the tribunal in The Hague to declare China’s claims to virtually all the South China Sea invalid, saying Beijing’s actions have trampled on other nations’ rights. Beijing says fears that it would eventually limit freedom of navigation and overflight to back its claims are unfounded.___Associated Press writer Jim Gomez in Manila, Philippines, contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.
