They also won on Christmas for the 22nd time, matching the Knicks’ NBA record.“A win is a win, and nobody makes excuses for us when we have guys down,” Williams said. “We got stops in the third quarter, and we were able to put a few (baskets) together.

Jaw-dropping footage: conservationists catch Javan rhino in mud wallow

first_imgArticle published by Isabel Esterman Animals, Biodiversity, Conservation, Endangered Species, Environment, Happy-upbeat Environmental, Javan Rhinos, Mammals, Protected Areas, Rainforest Animals, Rhinos, Wildlife With just 68 individuals surviving in a single site, the Javan rhino is one of the world’s rarest and most endangered animals.The species is so elusive that conservationists have studied it for years without meeting one in the flesh. Even images are rare.Now, newly released video and photos from a recent expedition by Global Wildlife Conservation and WWF show a Javan rhino wallowing in a mud bath. Twelve minutes. That’s all the time Robin Moore, photographer and communications director with Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC), and David Hermanjaya, a videographer with WWF, got to spend with one of the world’s most endangered mammals — a species so rare that the men and women who daily protect it rarely see it in the flesh. But in those minutes they managed to get wonderful and intimate video and photos of the critically endangered Javan rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus).Only 68 of the animals are left on the planet, and biologists believe they spend a considerable amount of time in wallows and rivers to cool down and get rid of bugs and parasites. Camping above a wallow built specifically for this purpose, Moore and Hermanjaya had the encounter of a lifetime when one actually showed up.“As the afternoon cooled and the curtain of darkness prepared to fall, an almighty crashing sound erupted to the right of the platform. It could be nothing other than a rhino,” Moore said. “We sat motionless and waited. And then it emerged and walked from the forest into the mud wallow in front of us.”According to Moore, the rhino then behaved naturally as the two conservationists filmed video and shot photos.“It’s the first time in my life I have frozen with my finger hovering over the camera, afraid to move a muscle. It was a surreal moment — without warning, and after months of planning, and days of searching, this majestic, mythical animal was in front of us,” he said.“By sharing these photos, we hope to give people an emotional connection to this rare species—an animal that even rhino biologists only dream of getting a glimpse of in the wild,” Moore said.The encounter was a part of a 10-day expedition that included bringing everything — supplies, food, a generator, and even a zodiac boat — in by hand. Every day, team members paddled down the river looking for rhinos, and at night took turns sleeping on the raised platform over the wallow.A team from Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) and WWF managed to capture this rare image of a Critically Endangered Javan Rhino during a 10-day expedition in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park. Image by Robin Moore/Global Wildlife Conservation.The entire Javan rhino population is concentrated in Ujung Kulon National Park on the western tip of Indonesia’s Java Island. While a population of 68 individuals sounds terribly small, it’s a huge success, considering there were just 20 of the animals in Ujung Kulon in the 1960s.Today, Ujung Kulon is the last stand for a species that was once widespread across Asia. The last Javan rhino on the Asian mainland was shot by poachers in 2010, in Vietnam, resulting in the total extinction of a distinct subspecies of Javan rhino.The Indonesian government currently works in partnership with numerous conservation groups, including WWF, GWC, the International Rhino Foundation and the Indonesian Rhino Foundation (YABI), to safeguard this last Javan population. Conservation activities include working to clear the park of an invasive tree species, arenga palm, that is depleting habitat for the rhinos; partnering with local communities; and, of course, protection by wildlife rangers.A rare image of a Critically Endangered Javan Rhino. According to the latest tally, just 68 Javan rhinos survive, all of them living in Ujung Kulon National Park. Image by Robin Moore/ Global Wildlife Conservation.Conservationists say they hope to find a suitable place to establish a second population of Javan rhinos.“Having all rhinos in one site, which is vulnerable to poaching, disease, volcanic eruption and tsunami, is just too risky,” said Barney Long, director of species conservation at GWC.The search has focused on Java, but hasn’t been able to identify a location large enough to maintain a viable population. With more than 140 million people on the island, there are few forests left big enough for rhinos. Java has already lost its endemic tiger and elephant subspecies. An alternative would be to find a new habitat in Sumatra, which has its own critically endangered rhino subspecies, the Sumatran rhino (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis).“Assessments have been done in Sumatra, but it would be easier politically to move some [Javan rhinos] to Java — at least at first,” Long said.A Javan Rhino in a mud wallow. Biologists believe they spend a considerable amount of time in wallows and rivers to cool down and get rid of bugs and parasites.

But the areas destined to become protected areas have had little fishing activity in recent years, which helped move negotiations in favor of the marine parks. Argentina has officially created two large marine protected areas: the Yaganes Marine National Park, lying off of the country’s southern tip, and the Namuncurá-Burdwood Bank II Marine National Park in the South Atlantic. Together, the two parks cover a total area of about 98,000 square kilometers (37,000 square miles).By designating these two marine parks, Argentina has increased the total area of its protected ocean to about 8 percent. This puts the country closer to achieving its commitment of protecting 10 percent of its national waters by 2020 under the biodiversity targets of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).Yaganes Marine National Park lies off the southern tip of Argentina, while Namuncurá-Burdwood Bank II Marine National Park is located in the South Atlantic. Image courtesy of the Wildlife Conservation Society.Recent explorations of the areas now designated as marine parks have shown that the waters and surrounding land are home to a rich diversity of marine creatures including the South American sea lion (Otaria flavescens); king (Aptenodytes patagonicus), rockhopper (Eudyptes spp.) and Magellanic penguins (Spheniscus magellanicus); South American fur seal (Arctocephalus australis); several species of sharks and rays; and rare cold-water corals. Many marine species in these parks are not found anywhere else on Earth. The sea floor is also covered by mountains and canyons and giant kelp forests, the expeditions conducted by National Geographic’s Pristine Seas team, the government of Argentina, the government of Tierra del Fuego, and the Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea, revealed.“Argentina’s new marine parks are a significant step toward the preservation of the ocean and the diversity of ocean-dependent species in the Patagonian Sea,” Claudio Campagna, a marine scientist at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), which has provided support for the creation of the parks, said in a statement. “These parks will permit marine wildlife to pursue their life cycles undisturbed.”Industrial fishing is both an important source of revenue for Argentina and a threat to the country’s marine life. Data from Global Fishing Watch, an NGO that tracks and shares fishing information in near-real time, show that very few vessels fish in the areas now designated as marine national parks. This evidence helped move negotiations with the fishing industry in favor of the marine parks, Global Fishing Watch said in a statement.There’s a growing movement worldwide to increase the coverage of marine protected areas. From 430 marine parks in 1985 there are more than 15,000 protected areas today. These parks cover nearly 27 million square kilometers (10 million square miles), or about 7 percent of the Earth’s oceans, according to the latest figures from the U.N.’s Protected Planet data repository at the time of writing this story.The two marine parks are home to the South American sea lion.

Linden Town Clerk reinstated

first_imgLinden Town Clerk Jonellor Bowen resumed duties within the municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) on Wednesday. Bowen, who confirmed that she was back on the job following months of administrative leave, said she is also in the process of preparing a press statement in relation to the issue, which she noted will be released shortly.Linden Town Clerk Jonellor BowenCouncillors of the municipality had passed a No-Confidence Motion against Bowen on July 27, 2016, and she was sent on administrative leave in October 2016, following a Commission of Inquiry into alleged wrongdoings within the Council. The Commission of Inquiry which released its findings a few weeks ago, however, found that the Motion brought against the Town Clerk was “in contravention with the procedures set out in Section 8 of Chapter 28:01 of the Municipal and District Councils Act of the Laws of Guyana and was also in contravention of the Standing Order rules under Section 9.”Permanent Secretary within the Communities Ministry,  Emil McGarrel, wrote to the Council in a letter dated January 26, 2017, advising the Council to reinstate Bowen. McGarrel noted in the letter that arising from the findings of this Committee, the Ministry is not in a position to endorse the No-Confidence Motion as it currently stands due to its procedural irregularities. He further advised that the Town Clerk shall be called upon to resume her functions as Town Clerk forthwith.Nevertheless, the Council made a decision that Bowen should resume duties on March 1 to facilitate a smooth transition of her duties. Bowen said she received correspondence from the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) on Tuesday evening which stated that she should resume duties on Wednesday. (Utamu Belle)last_img read more

Metro of the Month: San Francisco

first_imgTo learn more about San Francisco and other metro economies, please go to:  SHRM Metro Economic Outlooks Health care and tourism are two of the big contributors to the San Francisco area’s economy, and technology giants such as Google, Yahoo and LinkedIn – all headquartered nearby in Silicon Valley – have conducted expansions recently in the San Francisco metro area.  With job creation steady as of late, city officials have set their sights on creating more places for workers to live, led by a plan to build 30,000 new housing units in San Francisco by 2020. One-third of those units would be permanently designated as affordable for low-income residents, and more than half of the new units will be priced for middle-income residents. Some of the Fortune 500 members based in the San Francisco area include Pacific Gas & Electric, clothing retailer Gap Inc. and financial interest Charles Schwab. The San Francisco metro region spans nine counties in Northern California.  In San Francisco alone, the city’s fast-growing technology sector is home to more than 2,200 companies that employ more than 58,000 workers. One of the city’s homegrown tech companies, Salesforce.com, added 1,000 local jobs in 2014, and ride-sharing service Uber is in the midst of building a new, 422,000-square-foot headquarters in the Mission Bay neighborhood. last_img read more
