There's Now an 'Underwater Yellowstone' off the Coast of Cape Cod
"Located off the coast of Cape Cod, the newly-designated Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument is a Connecticut-sized chunk of land known for gigantic underwater canyons and dead volcanoes. It’s home to deep sea corals found nowhere else on Earth, endangered sperm, fin, and sei whales, and sea turtles, along with a slew of rare fish and marine invertebrates."

As the election looms, Obama’s plan to save the planet kicks into high gear. Last month, POTUS vastly expanded Hawaii’s Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, turning it into the world’s largest marine protected area.

How one man is saving China's endangered bees
"Most beekeepers in China keep imported bees from Europe because they are easier to manage and produce more honey. But 60-year-old Li Yongchang decided to keep indigenous Chinese bees a decade ago. They have been on the verge of extinction for years, and Li is on a mission to pass on his skills to raise these creatures essential to China's natural environment."

Over 300 hippos and buffaloes in Kruger National Park to be culled due to drought
Um. When I was at the Kruger around this time last year, it was pretty dry.
The worst drought in decades is still having an impact on South Africa.

With Chevrolet Bolt, the new normal for EVs will be 200+ miles range, $30K base price
"The Chevrolet Bolt EV will match or exceed the Tesla Model 3 on key specs when it goes on sale late this year. Chevrolet just announced its EPA rating for range will be 238 miles from its 60-kilowatt hour battery."
Chevrolet Bolt matches Tesla Model 3 on most features. It ships a year before Tesla's announced delivery date and tax credits will be available after Tesla's expire.

Introduction
Although I've been a martial arts instructor in Taiji (Tai Chi), Qigong, Daoyin, Ryukyu Kobujutsu (Kobudo) & Karate Jutsu for over 40 years, I still consider myself a student of the martial arts.  My outlook in life is that of a scholar warrior with the basic philosophy that you study the old to understand the new.  Currently I'm the Chief Instructor at Yuishinkai Kobujutsu USA, and a Branch Chief in USA for both Yuishinkai and Ryukyu Kobujutsu Hozon Shinko Kai.

For my martial art postings, please check and circle my G+ pages Martial Arts with Colman and Yuishinkai Kobujutsu USA.

For other information about my interest in the martial arts, please check my website Martial Arts with Colman.

I'm also interested in any technology that makes things easier.
Bragging rights
My family who have put up with me. My students who have stuck with me all these years. My martial art teachers who had accepted me as their student. The absolute experience of actually having trained under my teacher Shifu/Shihan Edward Jardine's teachers, most notably Grandmaster Duan Yu-Chang and Inoue Gansho (Motokatsu) O'Sensei.
