La quasitotalité des forêts tropicales sont mal gérées

first_imgLa quasi-totalité des forêts tropicales sont mal géréesSelon le rapport “Situation de la gestion des forêts tropicales 2011”, plus de 90% des forêts tropicales sont mal gérées voire pas du tout. Elles sont pourtant indispensables pour l’avenir du climat et de la biodiversité.L’Organisation internationale des bois tropicaux (OIBT) a publié hier son rapport “Situation de la gestion des forêts tropicales 2011”, qui porte sur 33 pays. Le constat est alarmant puisque 90% des forêts tropicales seraient “mal gérées, voire pas du tout”. L’organisation explique que chaque année “des millions d’hectares sont défrichés pour l’agriculture, les pâturages et autres affectations autres que forestières, ou sont dégradés en raison de l’exploitation forestière opérée à un rythme insoutenable ou de nature illicite”.À lire aussiLes tamanoirs, des animaux plus dangereux qu’ils n’en ont l’airDe plus, les choses ne semblent pas s’arranger car il est plus rentable financièrement, à l’heure actuelle, de déboiser que de conserver les forêts. Elles sont pourtant cruciales pour l’avenir de la planète toute entière. Si 50% des espèces végétales et animales s’y trouvent, le déboisement entraîne de son côté 10 à 20% des émissions de gaz à effet de serre mondiales rappelle Sciences et Avenir.Toutefois, l’étude indique que certains progrès ont eu lieu avec la mise en place de programmes de “gestion durable”. Ces pratiques ont progressé avec 50% de superficie supplémentaire qu’il y a cinq ans. Aujourd’hui, 53 millions d’hectares (l’équivalent de la surface de la Thaïlande) sont mieux gérés contre 36 millions en 2006. Les meilleurs élèves en la matière sont le Brésil, le Gabon, le Guyane, la Malaisie et le Pérou. Le Brésil, notamment, a réussi à ralentir le rythme de la déforestation de la forêt amazonienne. Celle si n’est “que” de 6.500 kilomètres carrés contre 27.000 kilomètres carrés en 2004.Mais, comme l’explique à l’AFP le directeur adjoint de la Fondation suisse pour le développement et la coopération internationale, Jürgen Blaser, “la certification, label d’excellence environnementale et sociale en échange de bonnes pratiques pour préserver la forêt, est un acte volontaire, qui coûte cher”. Cet auteur du rapport précise que “sur le marché du bois, beaucoup de pays parmi les grands consommateurs comme la Chine ou l’Inde ne demandent pas de bois certifié. C’est la grande limite de ce dispositif”.Le 12 juin 2011 à 16:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

8 Insane Moments on Tumblr That Will Go Down in History

first_img It was always hard to define exactly what Tumblr was. You could write blogs on there, but it wasn’t really good for blogging. You could link up with other people like a social network, but it wasn’t really that either. It was — and is, I guess, although the latest news about the platform banning adult content seems like a nail in the coffin — something truly unique.Tumblr was founded by David Karp in 2007 as a method for people to post “tumblelogs” — essentially short-form blogs — featuring links, short paragraphs and a stream of consciousness style. It rapidly grew a wild and fractious user base, split into dozens if not hundreds of communities united by niche interests. The site was acquired by Yahoo in 2013 and declined along with the rest of that corporate entity, and is now owned by Verizon’s Oath division. But in its prime, Tumblr was a hotbed for Weird Internet, generating unforgettable memes, crazy stories, and legendary posts. Here are some of the most notorious. Thanks to tumblr memedocumentation and Twitter user 3liza for research help.BoneghaziTumblr was a home for all kinds of subcultures, including religious ones. It also was a home for “call-out posts,” where one user would put another on blast for a crime real or imaginary. One of the most epic call-outs of all time came in December of 2015 when user pastel-prouvaire issued a warning about a woman named Ender Darling for… wait for it… stealing human bones from a flooded cemetery in Louisiana. This was allegedly for use in witchcraft ceremonies, but the moral repercussions of just grabbing another human’s remains were very explicitly explained to them.This whole debacle was one of the few Internet phenomenons to result in actual criminal charges, with the police raiding Darling’s home and seizing bones and teeth. She was brought to court on a charge of simple burglary, which she pled guilty to.MishapocalypseNiche fandoms were the lifeblood of Tumblr, as the seriously dedicated followers of TV shows like Sherlock and Dr. Who used the platform for fanfic, art and roleplaying. One show that has a demonstrably outsized online fandom is the CW’s Supernatural, and in 2013 fans of that show managed to make Tumblr almost unusable for a day with a single photograph. The event was called “Mishapocalypse.”In March of that year, a user named lokisleathersuit floated the idea of multiple people changing their user icons to a specific picture of Supernatural actor Misha Collins, who plays the angel Castiel on the show. The date was set for April 1st, and like many things on Tumblr it rapidly spiraled out of control. Thousands of users made the switch, and followed up by posting the picture to their feed, creating memes and more. It then spawned a wave of complaint posts as non-participating users complained that their dash was nothing but the same photo no matter how far they scrolled.Dragonkin Eating JewelryThe “otherkin” subculture found a home on Tumblr pretty early. If you’re not familiar, these are people who believe that their spirit is actually that of an animal or some other creature. It’s kind of like being a furry, only mentally. People go to different lengths with it, and the above post is pretty spectacular. Dragonkin, obviously, think that they’re actually dragons, and because this poor kid has spent too much time with the old AD&D Monster Manual, they think that as a dragon they’re supposed to eat jewelry.That was just the tip of the iceberg with otherkin on Tumblr, but it’s a great example of how even the most absurd thing somebody posted could be believable on there.DashConThere comes a point in the life cycle of every online community when it reaches a critical mass and users make the leap into congregating online. This is always a mistake. Case in point: DashCon, created in 2014 to allow Tumblr users to meet some of their favorite content creators and enjoy special programming and performances. That… did not happen.The event’s organizers were in way over their heads, unable to pay guests, provide them accommodations or even pay for the hotel venue itself. Things got so bad that during the first day they were frantically soliciting donations from the less than 1,000 people who showed up to try and pay the $20,000 facility fee. The iconic moment of DashCon came when they offered to reimburse people who were upset at the cancellation of the Welcome To Night Vale panel with “an extra hour” in the convention’s tiny ball pit. It was classic Tumblr – earnest, inept and completely unable to see how ridiculous it was being.The Severed Toe NecklaceOne thing that Tumblr did very well is allow people to form surprisingly deep bonds with each other. Bonds deep enough to, say, send amputated body parts through the mail. In 2017, a Tumblr user named cummy-eyelids posted a pair of pictures of a severed pinky toe in a medical waste container that had been mailed to her by another user named royallyoily. The plan was to drain the fluid out, put the toe in a different housing and then send it back to her to wear as a pendant.This… is wild. The toe had been cut off all the way back in 2011 and royallyoily (a young woman named Hayley) had just sort of kept it around for sentimental reasons before meeting cummy-eyelids on Tumblr, seeing her other sculptural work that used bones, skulls and “wet specimens” and approaching her about mailing her a severed body part. Completely normal and sanitary thing to do in every way.Homestuck Skin DyeOf all the fandoms that ravaged the trenches of Tumblr, Andrew Hussie’s Homestuck might have been the most intense and disorienting. The convoluted tale of an online game leaking into the real world, human kids and trolls, and a million billion in-jokes sprawls to 8,000 pages and inspired slavish devotion both on Tumblr and in the real world. There are plenty of shipping battles and canon wars, but the 100% best Homestuck-related Tumblr post came in 2012, when a user shared a story from Anime Expo that will blow your mind.Apparently the story’s subject crashed a room at Anime Expo and to prepare for her cosplaying as the troll Terezi attempted to dye her skin gray by submerging herself in a bathtub filled with sharpies dissolved in denatured alcohol. Needless to say, she not only trashed the bathroom but also gave herself a serious skin condition in the process. The post about it went mega-viral and colored (no pun intended) the Homestuck fandom as irrational lunatics for years.The HIV+ Hamilton Fanfic FracasOne of the most purely, truly Tumblr things of all time came with the blog hivliving, run by a pair of HIV-positive female writers, Israa and Naj. The duo were known for their 170,000 word fanfic of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash hit Hamilton that recast the Founding Father as a high school student in the 1980s, also with HIV. Pretty normal (for Tumblr) so far, until the whole thing came crashing down in 2017. Israa and Naj, both of whom claimed to live in India, were exposed as a white American college student who had been faking the whole thing to get attention for the fanfic.Now for the bigger twist: the user who exposed them, digoxin-purpurpea, didn’t do so out of any great desire for social justice. Instead, it turned out that the person behind Israa and Naj had reported on their own Hamilton fanfic, this time about Hamilton as a cannibal mermaid, and they were just out for revenge.Female Presenting NipplesIt’s only appropriate that Tumblr’s latest meme came as a consequence of the company’s own actions. When they released their new content policy prohibiting adult or sexually explicit images, it contained a turn of phrase so awkward that it instantly rocketed into the memeosphere. That phrase? “Female presenting nipples.”While we can appreciate the general intent here to include both cis and trans women in the same bucket — even if it’s to say “you can’t be on this website” — it’s just such a bizarre, faux-woke use of the English language to set a policy that has no real basis in the world. What makes a male presenting nipple as opposed to a female presenting one? How can you tell by looking at the nipple itself? Posts started to fly hot and heavy mocking the concept, which might end up being the last truly great meme Tumblr ever makes.More on Geek.com:Tumblr Says Goodbye to NSFW ContentApple Reveals Most Popular iPhone Apps of 2018Study: College Students Choose Smartphones Over Food Pornhub Maybe Wants To Buy TumblrThe Weirdest And Worst Simpsons Fan Art Stay on targetlast_img read more

In projects where developers do include affordable units, they would have to reserve them for slightly lower-income households and charge cheaper rents.This change to the “inclusionary housing” policy was proposed by Council President Georgette Gomez and was narrowly approved by the City Council on a 5-4 vote on first reading.

ASA Registers Significant Concern Following Withdrawal from TPP

first_imgThe nation’s soybean farmers expressed significant concern Monday, following an executive order from President Donald Trump that withdraws the United States from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). American Soybean Association (ASA) President Ron Moore pointed out the high stakes for soybean farmers, and urged the Trump Administration to immediately announce how it intends to engage and expand market access in the Asia-Pacific region.”Trade is something soybean farmers take very seriously. We export more than half the soy we grow here in the United States, and still more in the form of meat and other products that are produced with our meal and oil,” said Moore, who farms in Roseville, Ill. “The TPP held great promise for us, and has been a key priority for several years now. We’re very disappointed to see the withdrawal today.”Soybeans are the nation’s largest agricultural export, and markets in Southeast Asia and Latin America continue to grow in their potential as buyers of U.S. soy. The biggest beneficiary from TPP, however, was the American livestock industry–in the form of increased meat and dairy exports–which represents the largest domestic market for soybean meal.The TPP represents 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP), and according to the Peterson Institute, would have increased overall U.S. exports by $357 billion by 2030. Specifically for U.S. farmers, TPP would have increased annual net farm income by $4.4 billion according to the American Farm Bureau Federation. Additionally, TPP was the first regional trade agreement to address the need to coordinate international policy on trade in the products of agricultural biotechnology, a benefit that ASA will push to see in any future agreements with TPP partner nations.”Moving forward, we expect to see a plan in place as soon as possible to engage the TPP partner nations and capture the value that we lose with the withdrawal today. With net farm income down by over 40 percent from levels just a few years ago, we need trade deals with the Asia-Pacific countries to make up for the $4.4 billion in annual net farm income being lost by farmers from not moving forward with the TPP. Also, we expect a seat at the table to help ensure these agreements in whatever form they take are crafted to capture their full value for soybean farmers,” added Moore. “Trade is too important for us to support anything less.”last_img read more

New highway patterns continue to cause confusion in SW MiamiDade

first_imgSOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – For the second day, a new highway pattern in Southwest Miami-Dade has led to some traffic trouble.The new route requires drivers to stay on the left lanes for the Turnpike and the right lane for the Don Shula Expressway.The driver of a van could be seen in video accidentally exiting at the Don Shula Expressway and then stopping to put their blinkers on, Tuesday.The motorist then decided to reverse but was promptly stopped by an officer, who flashed his lights.Most drivers were unaware of the change, which caused confusion as motorists nearly collided with one another while trying to switch sides.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close The February 14 terror strike in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir has ratcheted up tensions between India and Pakistan leading to tit-for-tat air raids across the line of control (LoC) in Kashmir.Intelligence agencies have reportedly asked the Jammu and Kashmir administration and security forces to remain on high alert after it received credible inputs of a probable Pulwama-like suicide attack in the Kashmir valley. The agencies have warned that motorbike-borne suicide bombers might target polling booths as well as election rallies during the Lok Sabha 2019 elections.Sources said that the intelligence radar is already on a high alert after the Pulwama attack on Lethpora, Srinagar- Jammu Highway, in which a suicide bombing killed 40 CRPF troopers and led to an increase in the hostilities between the neighbouring countries of India and Pakistan.But the suicide bombers or Fidayeen could now wield a motorbike and strike a polling station or the campaigns of the political leaders. “Beware of the suicide attackers riding a motorcycle with explosive-filled bags fitted on the bike,” the agencies cautioned the local police. As per the intelligence inputs, the two-wheeler could prove to be more manoeuvrable and easy to hit any target.The possibility of strikes could be particularly high in North Kashmir, which is yet to go to polls where the Jaish–e -Mohammad militants are holed up, the reports suggested. This is also indicative of the fact that the militants who have faced massive damage at the hands of security forces in South Kashmir over the last few years may be gradually making North Kashmir their turf.The security forces had earlier claimed of recovering huge stocks of arms and ammunitions post-February 14 Pulwama attack that was believed to be of Chinese making. The stock of weaponry retrieved included 70 Chinese made hand grenades, pistols, armour-piercing incendiary shells, and tracer rounds of Chinese origin.Sources say that Pakistan is trying to evade the blame which is generally put on it after the terrorist attacks on Indian soil by trying to smuggle in China made ammunition across the Line of Control.China has been an all-weather friend of Pakistan and has supported the defence programmes as well as supplied machinery to the latter. Recently during aerial combat between India and Pakistan, it was believed that Pakistan used Chinese fighter planes to monitor air space close to India. India’s relations with China have gone sour after the latter has repeatedly blocked its request to declare the Jaish Chief, Maulana  Masood Azhar as a global terrorist at the United Nations.center_img J&K IED blast: 18 CRPF personnel killed in Pulwama; JeM claims responsibilitylast_img read more

Israels Check Point Software to ramp up India operations

first_img ‘Petya’ ransomware strikes computer servers across globe. Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, a leading Israeli provider of products and services for IT security to major multinational companies, is looking at expanding its India operations based out of Bengaluru in the next six months, sources familiar with the development told International Business Times (IBT).The security product and services provider will add 80-100 people to its India operations, based primarily out of Bengaluru in the next six months, sources told IBT.Nasdaq-listed Check Point is understood to be working out of a 1,800-2,000 sq ft office in its Bengaluru operations and is looking at expanding its operations by leasing out 7,000-8,000 sq ft of prime office space in the city centre.”Against the backdrop of the global economic slowdown and flagging investments on security products by clients, as well as higher expenses hitting its operating margins, the company has been focussing more on slashing the enormous marketing costs involved in acquiring new clients, while improving its net margins by pushing value additions for its clients through security updates and related services,” sources said.A mail sent to Check Point’s Asia-Pacific spokesperson late last week on the company’s India expansion plans, remained unanswered at the time of going to e-press.The growing captive center of the $1.74-billion company is expected to support services and security updates to its growing roster of clients worldwide.Riding on a 27 percent rise in subscription sales, Check Point Software posted net profit after tax of $182.55 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, an increase of 9.04 percent compared with $167.42 million for the same period last year. Revenues rose 7.7 per cent to $435.45 million from $404.27 million posted during the same quarter last year.Total expenses were 51.58 percent of quarterly revenues, up from 49.98 percent for the same period last year. That resulted in a contraction of 160 basis points in operating margin to 48.42 percent.The Tel Aviv, Israel, and San Carlos, California-based firm has about 3,600 employees on its worldwide rolls. India staff numbers are as yet unknown. It has a market capitalisation of $18.49 billion on the Nasdaq.Check Point was established in Ramat-Gan of Israel in 1993 by current CEO Gil Shwed, chairman and serial entrepreneur Marius Nacht and Shlomo Kramer, who left the company in 2003. Within the broader IT security domain, Check Point provides software and combined hardware and software products for network security, endpoint security, mobile security, data security and security management.The company’s products and services are sold to large enterprises, service providers, small and medium-sized businesses and consumers. It offers enterprises a platform to deploy independent, modular and interoperable security applications (Software Blades), such as firewall, virtual private network (VPN), intrusion prevention system (IPS), Application Control, Anti-Bot, antivirus, data loss prevention (DLP), policy management, event analysis or multi-domain management.
