Claims of NDP Government not rebuilding Forest Industry ludicrous, says Parliamentary Secretary

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Yesterday, September 17, the Provincial Government announced that it would be investing $69 million to support forest workers impacted by mill closures and curtailments.Following the announcement, Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Forests, Ravi Kahlon, is on tour meeting with community leaders, workers, and contractors to provide more details on the provincial investment.Lately, the B.C. Liberals have been critical towards the NDP claiming that the Government has no interest in rebuilding the forest industry.- Advertisement -Kahlon says the Liberal’s claim is ludicrous as they would have seen a report from 2015 that commissioned the closure of 13 mills.He says the Liberals could have informed workers of this plan in order for them to prepare, instead of burying it and dealing with the issue now.“I would say that’s ludicrous. In 2015, the B.C. Liberals, many of the ministers, would’ve seen the report that they had commissioned that said that there was going to be 13 mills closed. Imagine if that report had been made public at that time, instead of being buried, communities, workers, and families would’ve had time to prepare for this outcome. Instead, we’re dealing with it as it comes.”Advertisement The B.C. Council of Forest Industries had also released their own plan to help out the forest industry, and Kahlon feels that there are a lot of good points made within their plan to fix the ailing industry.Kahlon says the Provincial Government will continue to talk with communities and workers to create a solution for the long term.last_img read more

Plants Have Social Networks

first_imgPlants may be mostly stationary, but they have connections.  They are so well connected, in fact, that they have both intranets, extranets and internets.  Inside their own vessels, they communicate with proteins and RNA molecules from root to shoot (04/23/2010); outside, they have many social relationships with other organisms.  They even “friend” their partners, just like humans do on Facebook.    Ferris Jabr wrote about plant communication on New Scientist this week.  “The botanical underground is a social network of powerful alliances and nepotism,” the article began.  “Decoding its messages could lead to radical change in farms and forests.”  Jabr wrote in terms of Darwinian competition, survival, antagonism, defense and kin selection, but the story is really about amazing mechanisms plants employ to communicate. We’ve known for some time that plants respond to one another, but only now are we realising how subtle and sophisticated their interactions can be.  Plants continually eavesdrop on each other’s chemical chatter – sometimes sympathetically, sometimes selfishly.  Some plants, like the Scandinavian rhododendron, assist their neighbours by sharing resources.  Others recognise close relatives and favour them over strangers.  And at least one parasitic plant homes in on its host’s telltale chemical scent….    “Plants don’t go out to parties or to watch the movies, but they do have a social network,” says Suzanne Simard, a forest ecologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.  “They support each other and they fight with each other.  The more we look at plant signalling and communication, the more we learn.  It’s really incredible.”Attributing selfishness or pugnacity to plants is, of course, an unjustified anthropomorphism.  Without eyes, ears or brains, plants have uncanny abilities to send signals and respond to them.  Some of these, Jabr described in the article, are volatile compounds wafted through the air.  Even more amazing, though, are highways of fungal filaments in the soil that can relay messages and nutrients from plant to plant:Beneath the forest floor, each spoonful of dirt contains millions of tiny organisms.  These bacteria and fungi form a symbiotic relationship with plant roots, helping their hosts absorb water and vital elements like nitrogen in return for a steady supply of nutrients.    Now closer inspection has revealed that fungal threads physically unite the roots of dozens of trees, often of different species, into a single mycorrhizal network.  These webs sprawled beneath our feet are genuine social networks.Through these fungal highways, plants share not only nutrients, but information, Jabr said.  “When a caterpillar starts to munch on a tomato plant, for example, the leaves produce noxious compounds that both repel the attacker and stimulate neighbouring plants to ready their own defences.”  Plants recognize their own species and work together for the common good.  But plants are also within communities of diverse organisms that benefit from each other’s contributions to the community.    We can’t yet speak the language of plants, but we know they speak through codes made of “soluble compounds including phenols, flavonoids, sugars, organic acids, amino acids and proteins, secreted by roots into the rhizosphere.”  Even though “How these indicate relatedness is still a mystery,” a practical application would be for farmers to plant crops with the plants’ “friends” – “the strategic positioning of different crops or garden plants so they benefit one another by deterring pests, attracting pollinators and improving nutrient uptake.”  In other words, instead of planting pesticide-drenched monoculture crops, they could go back to methods of Native Americans, who used such techniques for centuries.Did these capabilities evolve slowly over millions of years?  Darwin’s “abominable mystery” – the emergence of flowering plants, the largest and most diverse group of plants on earth – was dealt another blow this week.  Beautiful, detailed leaves that look like they were pressed in a book were found exquisitely preserved in the Jehol strata in China, reported New Scientist.  Being dated at 123 million years old puts an advanced angiosperm “roughly contemporary with the ancestors of all flowering plants around today.”    Reporter Colin Barras claimed that “Flowering plants had an evolutionary edge over the conifers and other gymnosperms that were around at the time, and rapidly took over.”  The problem with such explanations, though, is not the survival of the fittest, but the arrival of the fittest.  Even assuming their own timeline, evolutionists have no explanation for how complex plants, communications networks and all, seemed to appear abruptly, fully formed, without ancestors.Darwinism is the hacker in the social network, the malware among people just wanting to share good news.(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Youth vlog the South African story

first_imgA camera, an internet connection and a desire to be in front of the camera is all you need to begin vlogging. (Image:Tamur Madjerey).• Caspar Lee, South Africa’s 20-year-old YouTube millionaire • South Africa drives Africa’s internet traffic • Mobile phone boost to African internet • South Africa online • SA web users to double by 2014 Sulaiman PhilipVlog (noun): A blog in which the postings are primarily in video form. Since 2011 it has been a point-scoring word in Scrabble. The South African vlogging population is growing. Slowly. But it is giving South Africans, mostly young, an opportunity to share their world with the universe.There are older South African vloggers, says Gabriel Erasmus, but the majority tend to be younger. Erasmus is the creator of the youtubestars.co.za website and a member of the South African Facebook vlogging group. “Age is not a factor. If you have a camera, internet connection, a love for filmmaking or just love being in front of a camera you are sorted,” he continues.These young, and young at heart, South Africans are in the vanguard of an internet movement that has been growing over the past decade. It is the evolution from the ubiquitous bloggers, and involves the uploading of personal video clips of everything from beauty and fashion tips to raging about language and homesickness.Henri Himschoot was one of the first South African vloggers. The Cape Town musician began his The Himschoots vlog in 2010. A period of inactivity that lasted for a few years came to an end when he discovered the YouTube South Africa Facebook group. When he joined in April 2014, there were 80 members; there are now 291 and the number grows daily. “The community is extremely diverse, but you have to get to know us and understand how we all fit together to make one big happy South African family. Not one of us competes with the other, we all support each other and that’s what makes us succeed.” Communication toolRuben Mostert was the shy kid at school who had trouble making friends. Vlogging became his outlet and means of communicating with others. The longer he vlogged the more confident and comfortable he became in his own skin. “The best of all, my personality in front of the camera has evolved into my daily life. Why do I like vlogging? You can escape the real world with all the bad things going on and create your own world and share it. Call it my fantasy world if you want.”Author Michael Kaminsky traces the birth of vlogging to 2000 and Adam Kontras’s dream of a Hollywood career. Driving across the United States, he posted a video to accompany the blog of his trip. By 2008, vlogging helped elect an American president. Will.i.am’s Yes We Can used a speech by candidate Barack Obama to create a powerful vlog viewed more than 25 million times.Will.i.am’s vlog is slick and professional, but the popularity of vlogging is down largely to the ease with which people can shoot and upload videos. “To start you don’t need fancy equipment or expensive software. You can start with a smartphone and the basic video editing software that comes pre-installed with all major operating systems. All the skills needed are even taught in schools nowadays. In the end good content exceeds the need for expensive equipment and fancy editing.” Global online communityVlogs are part of a larger online movement that has given birth to online global communities. These communities are built on the idea that users are not docile recipients of content but are actively shaping their experience.Vlogger Kristen van Niekerk believes that technology is changing the way we communicate. The world has moved from writing letters to sending emails; phone calls have been replaced by video calls. “Writing is still the basis of all communication and won’t be replaced by video, but video does improve how we communicate. Our education system should adapt to technological advances, offer to teach skills to those who want to learn. Not everyone wants a life filled with technology, but the choice should be available.”YouTube has grown from its first video in 2005 to become a repository of videos of cute kittens, conspiracy theories and a new kind of entrepreneur. It is a hub of raw, soon to be discovered talent, a place that allows for experimentation and creativity that is changing the way traditional media interact with audiences.YouTube vlogger Michelle Phan has over 700 million views of her personal channel, a makeup demonstration channel that grew from a blog. That is as many people who turn on their TVs to watch the World Cup, all of whom want to watch a 27-year-old teach them how to apply lipstick like Miley Cyrus.In a 2012 MacTaggart lecture, media and TV executive Elisabeth Murdoch pointed out that YouTube was beginning to behave like a market leader. “Believe at your own risk that the platform is based on homemade videos of cats in washing machines… Brands and talent are using YouTube to create direct-to-consumer relationships.”Vloggers had developed a new way of creating content and interacting with an audience, which made them attractive to companies. The history of vlogging is full of stories of products mentioned on popular channels that sell out within days, if not hours. South African vloggersSouth Africa vloggers do not generate that kind of hysteria or have the fan base to do that, just yet. Sara Mormino, a director at YouTube, in an interview with the Guardian newspaper explained the attraction of vloggers to companies. She began by explaining that the earning capacity of English vloggers had increased by 60% in 2013, in large part thanks to mobile phones. “These young people have really captured a new way of creating content and a new way of engaging an audience.”South African vlogger Rachel Kopel says even YouTube stars never began vlogging intending to make money or become famous. She has been producing content for three years and believes that she is still learning to create great content. She does it because she is passionate about her topic and wants to share her opinions with the world. “We are living in a very self-absorbed generation, where everyone is taking selfies and promoting themselves. YouTube is a way of promoting yourself and creating a name and reputation for yourself. You must just hope that you are doing it for the right reasons.”As South Africa’s connectivity speeds increase and software becomes more accessible, the number of South Africans going online will increase. As we mature as technology users, how South Africans use the web will change. We will begin looking for more individual experiences or communities that share our interests. South African vloggers are building a collective memory bank to share about the South African experience.Being criticised, earning support, the frustrations of dealing with South African upload speeds, getting views, even making bloopers, are part of the adventure, say Marco and Elmar, who vlog as ThoseBroz. “You find a community that allows you to express yourself and where you can paint a picture of who you are, and share it with the world. The journey from your first video, straight up to your 20th-plus video, is simply one of the most amazing adventures any person can take,” they explain.last_img read more
