Remember I post things I agree with and disagree with. It's food for thought. Also because I have never learned anything from a person who agrees with me. 


by JIM GERAGHTY August 25, 2015 12:00 AM "Candidates for the traditionally law-and-order GOP shifted their tone this year, emphasizing the need to focus on drug treatment and rehabilitation, reduce spending on prisons, and rethink the nation’s approach to crime. For voters wary about government overreach and high spending, the appeal is obvious — as long as crime rates decline. But America’s biggest cities are witnessing a sudden spike in homicides and shootings this year, raising the question of whether the dynamics of the crime issue are shifting under candidates’ feet."

"November 10, 2015 — A University of Wyoming faculty member who believes organic agriculture is often oversimplified and misrepresented has her opportunity to correct that by building a relevant student curriculum with a $243,000 Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative grant from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Randa Jabbour, in the UW Department of Plant Sciences, and Eric Gallandt, at the University of Maine, will interview instructors across the country and use a video of several agricultural producers in different regions to create a curriculum free for anyone to use.
The focus is creating undergraduate and graduate curricula."

Content: "poor but sexy. So called Klaus Wowereit, Governing Mayor of Berlin, once the state of the German capital, he outlined his Aperçu which soon became a household word, at the same time the charm as the shortcomings of his community, met the specific Berlin's attractiveness and let the shortcomings without to hide altogether, in politically motivated sufficiently diffuse.

From what sources the living culture of a city, the old-inherited Europeans city especially feeds? After the ravages of World War II was a specific occasion, especially in Germany many attempts: The "car-friendly city" paid homage to the limitless mobility - and forgetting the security seekers; as one the "decent city" with its disused spaces, so-called pedestrian zones created, you suddenly missed the vitality of traffic; when it was made with cheap tenements urban housing, the people lacked the green; as they moved to the rural suburbs of the city, deserted urban spaces to office blocks.

That the state of modern civilization and the needs of a sociologically diffuse, long many ethnicities unifying urban society corresponding city model has therefore to be multifunctional. And that's a good thing, here could be said again with Berlin's Governing. Because even in the older view of history often been noted that all higher civilization was urban culture. Conversely, it is no wonder if civilization criticism occurred from time immemorial in the garb of the city criticism.

Even in the present form praise and criticism of urban life the focal point of the talk about the future of civilization. For some time now the world's seemingly unstoppable train towards urbanization of modern life gives rise for concern. They spoke a few decades ago even by the "Time Bomb city" whose explosion would bring the devastation of all previous achievements of civilization with it. In the recent debates on issues of urbanism rather offensive, even optimistic tones dominate - to the thesis: The cities will save the world.

The fact remains that come great responsibilities to the urban culture of the future. There are mainly the cities and megacities of the world, where the biggest challenge of the future, the ecological transformation of the modern modus vivendi, must lead to creative solutions when the adventure capital of culture should exist in the 21st century.

As our cities look in the future how to enable all social groups adequate participation, so how to go out the adventure city culture success and the future of our cities and our lives can be made therein, discuss it Peter Sloterdijk and Rüdiger Safranski with two renowned experts: Michael Mönninger, the Braunschweiger professor of history and theory of construction and space art, one of the most knowledgeable of all urban issues, and Werner Sobek, the demand around the world architects and engineering and professor at the Universities of Stuttgart and Chicago. For all their differences and differentiations in attempts to solve them, as radical conservative, but all agree on one point: urban planners, architects, artists and philosophers are called together to work on a city of the future project ".

Skincare Chemical Threatens Coral Reefs


Toxic Sunscreen Chemical
A study from a team of international scientists has found that a common chemical in many sunscreen lotions and cosmetics is highly toxic to juvenile corals and other marine life.

Scientists have discovered that a common chemical used to protect against the damaging effects of ultraviolet light is highly toxic to juvenile corals and other marine life.
A new study from a team of international scientists finds that a common chemical in many sunscreen lotions and cosmetics is highly toxic to juvenile corals and other marine life. Oxybenzone, or BP-3, is found in more than 3,500 skin care products worldwide for protection against the sun's harmful effects. The compound has been found entering the environment both through wastewater effluent and directly from swimmers wearing sunscreens.
The study, published in the journal Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, showed four major toxic effects in early, developing coral: increased susceptibility to bleachingDNA damage; abnormal skeleton growth (via endocrine disruption); and gross deformities of baby coral.

The authors of the study conclude that nontoxic oxybenzone alternatives are critical for protecting reefs and the exacerbating effects posed by climate change and bleaching.

I had to share this, it's that important!
