The international community has a rare opportunity in 2015 to confront two linked global challenges: extreme poverty and climate change. Success will depend on whether or not we can develop a new model for global cooperation.

Computerized automation and modern manufacturing techniques can produce amazing results, but there's something about master handcraft that says 'Art'.
Stuff comes in boxes, and we throw away or recycle most of those boxes. But every once in a while you buy something—fancy chocolates, an expensive bottle of booze, an Apple product—that comes in a box so nice that you can't let it go. Boxes of that sort are created

 What a lovely idea!!
I built an insect home this spring. 4 compartments provide shelter and nesting place for ladybirds, solitary bees, lacewings and butterflies. It took me several evenings and Saturday afternoons in the basement. Sawing, drilling, sanding, brooding. For a screen worker I’m not unhandy, but I never acquired any technical skill. A carpenter friend who made our kitchen used to draw his ideas on bits of fiberboard for me. I could never make out the p...

Oh, well said!!
Unconscious bias is a prevalent factor driving culture, causing us all to make assumptions based on our own upbringings and influences. Such implicit prejudice affects everything, and it's time for us to be more thoughtful, smarter, better. In this funny, honest talk, Yassmin Abdel-Magied uses a surprising way to challenge us all to look beyond our initial perceptions.

This makes sense to me.
Some farmers are combating climate change, boosting food security and improving their livelihoods by protecting and managing on-farm trees. A new report details how to spread this practice throughout the African drylands.

Wow.

"Balmori Associates says, "We proposed a new approach to city-making, one that starts with landscape architecture. The master plan consists of a continuous linear park on a continuous roof joining all the ministries. The government buildings are not separate, closed structures; they form a continuum at the ground and roof levels. This gesture means bringing access to all and encourages communication among the ministries. The park on the roof is intended as a fifth facade. Each of the six towns surrounding the Administrative City looks down on the park and the government buildings below it.""

Work
Occupation
I am a writer, a photographer, and a biologist-type person who has done environmental assessment and related work in five Canadian provinces. As a photographer my main interest is in landscape and nature photography, often using HDR and panoramic techniques. I supplement this interest with 'street shots': vignettes or moments that catch my attention. My creative writing is mostly short stories, although I sometimes write poetry in the Japanese style: haiku and gogyohka. I have wide spiritual interests, and I sometimes post links to articles on environmental advances or other areas that I believe may be of interest to those who have me in their circles.
