BREAKING NEWS: Interior Action on Arctic Refuge is a Human Rights Violation

lara trace hentz

Statement by Bernadette Dementieff, Executive Director, Gwich’in Steering Committee:

“For us, protecting this place is a matter of physical, spiritual and cultural survival. It is our basic human right to continue to feed our families and practice our traditional way of life. Oil exploration in the Arctic Refuge’s coastal plain would be a human rights violation. Our identity is not negotiable.

For decades, the Gwich’in Nation has defeated harmful proposals in Congress that would threaten the Coastal Plain; the birthplace to the Porcupine caribou herd and 190 other species, including migratory birds. This area is known to us as ‘Iizhik Gwats’an Gwandaii Goodlit’ – the sacred place where life begins.

The very existence and identity of the Gwich’in is under threat. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a sacred place. We want to continue to live our cultural and traditional life with the Porcupine Caribou Herd.”

Danse…

SamriSab

Parfois la seule réponse à ta question est : danse !
Danse et sens ton corps en mouvement, danse parce que rien n’est statique et que chaque moment passé a fini par s’écouler et qu’il n’y a plus rien à creuser.
Danse parce que tu utilises tout ton corps et que ta profonde sagesse y réside.
Danse parce que rien n’est aussi grave que tu l’imagines et que ce qu’il y a de plus sérieux est la vie qui circule en toi.
Danse, comme si ta vie en dépendait. 
Danse, parce que le sourire se dessine sur tes lèvres, et que le coeur aussi finira par s’y mettre.

Mon histoire a commencé ainsi…

Les Carnets d'une Quadra

Bonjour,

Aujourd’hui, je vous propose un billet différent… Je vais vous conter mon histoire de bloggeuse à travers trois univers, 3 blogs que j’adore ❤

Résultat d’images pour blog

Il y a environ 7 ans, on commençait à entendre parler des blogs… très curieuse, j’ai commencé à faire des recherches, fouiner sur le net… mais qu’est-ce que c’est que cette « bête »… Et très vite, j’ai compris l’intérêt de visiter ces blogs. Avoir de l’information, découvrir, pouvoir échanger, participer à des concours… et acheter sur le vide-dressing des bloggeuses des pièces tendance à petit prix…

Parce que oui… mon histoire a commencé comme ça !

J’avais entendu dire que certaines bloggeuses revendaient les vêtements et accessoires de leur shooting… étant donné que mon dressing débordaient de trucs « je te garde pour le au cas où », mais « je n’ai rien à me mettre »…😉

Je me suis dis banco à moi les belles pièces…

We Should Never Allow Science to be Defeated by Fake News

PenneyVanderbilt

Why the US withdrawal from the Paris Agreement is an affront to science, our planet, and our future generations.

As Donald Trump pulls the plug on the United States’ involvement in the Climate Change Agreement, ISWA President Antonis Mavropoulos makes it very clear that this is an affront to science, our planet and to our future generations.

The International Solid Waste Association stands with all the industrial and political leaders who have since spoken out against this dangerous action.

The recent announcement that the US is leaving the Paris Accord is a decision that will create huge profits for the fossil fuels industry and huge costs for the whole planet, especially for the poorest and more vulnerable countries and populations.

It demonstrates how vulnerable and politically fragile is a landmark agreement that took many years to be developed. It highlights that the available tools and mechanisms for a global response…

Hyperloop FAQs: Can this really work? How much will it cost? And is it safe?

PenneyVanderbilt

Hyperloop One has set itself a goal of having three of the ultra-fast transportation tubes operating globally by 2021. If it does, what are the chances one of them will pass through Columbus?

Hyperloop One is developing a system to move freight and passengers along high-speed tube networks.

Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MOROC) is a partner

The Midwest Connect Hyperloop corridor is a proposed freight and passenger transportation corridor between Chicago and Pittsburgh via Columbus. As a result of MORPC’s ongoing planning and coordination efforts to improve connectivity with neighboring regions, MORPC has partnered with the Columbus Partnership, and both public and private sector entities throughout the corridor, to develop this proposal for the Hyperloop One Global Challenge.

What is Hyperloop?

Hyperloop is a new mode of transportation that moves freight and people quickly, safely, on-demand and direct from origin to destination. Passengers or cargo are loaded into the Hyperloop…
