Vedanta Resources PLC and another (Appellants) v Lungowe and others (Respondents)
[2019] UKSC 20 UKSC 2017/0185 Vedanta Resources PLC and another (Appellants) v Lungowe and others (Respondents) On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales) The respondents are 1826 Zambian citizens (“the Claimants”) who reside in the Chingola region of the Copperbelt Province in Zambia. The second appellant/defendant (“KCM”) is a public limited company, incorporated in Zambia. KCM is the owner and operator of the Nchanga copper mine in Zambia. It is the largest private employer in Zambia, where it employs approximately 16,000 people (the vast majority at Nchanga). The first appellant/defendant (“Vedanta”) is a company incorporated in the UK which acts as a holding company for a group mining companies, including KCM. On 31 July 2015 the Claimants issued proceedings against the KCM and Vedanta. They claimed to have suffered personal injury, damage to property and loss of income, amenity and enjoyment of land as a result of pollution and environmental damage caused by discharges of harmful effluent from the Nchanga mine since 2005. On 19 August 2015 Akenhead J permitted the Claimants to serve the claim form on KCM outside the jurisdiction. In September and October 2015 Vedanta and KCM respectively applied for declarations that the court lacked jurisdiction to try the claims or, alternatively, that it should not exercise such jurisdiction that it might have. Coulson J dismissed those applications. The Court of Appeal upheld the dismissal of those applications. The issues are: (1) The proper approach to the “real issue”/“proper party” test under Practice Direction 6B para. 3.1, where a claimant seeks to sue a foreign subsidiary and a UK-domiciled parent company. (2) The proper approach to the exercise of discretion under CPR r.6.37(3) in mass tort claims, particularly the weight to be given to the prospect of parallel foreign proceedings as against the prejudice caused to a foreign defendant in defending mass tort claims in England and Wales. (3) The proper approach when determining whether there is a real risk that a claimant cannot obtain substantial justice in a foreign jurisdiction. (4) The proper application of EU law principles and cases to claims brought against an English domiciled parent company, where the non-EU claimant sues both an EU-domiciled parent company and its non-EU subsidiary company (5) Whether to refer point (4) above to the EU Court of Justice. The Supreme Court dismisses the appeal.

Biodiversity conservation
Biodiversity conservation- This lecture explains about the conservation of biodiversity.Conservation is the defense, maintenance, management, or restoration of wildlife and traditional assets akin to forests and water. Via the conservation of biodiversity the survival of many species and habitats which might be threatened due to human events will also be ensured. Other explanations for conserving biodiversity incorporate securing useful typical resources for future generations and protecting the health of eco-system features. Conservation can commonly be divided into two types: In-situ: Conservation of habitats, species and ecosystems the place they naturally occur. This is in-situ conservation and the typical tactics and interplay are conserved as good as the elements of biodiversity. Ex-situ: The conservation of elements of biodiversity out of the context of their normal habitats is known as ex-situ conservation. Zoos, botanical gardens and seed banks are all illustration of ex-situ conservation. In-situ conservation shouldn't be normally possible as habitats will have been degraded and there is also competition for land because of this species have got to be removed from the field to save them Threatened Species Over the last 200 years many species have turn out to be extinct and the extinction price is on the develop because of the have an impact on of human pastime. The fame of species has been assessed on a global scale by means of the sector Conservation Union. Taxa that are dealing with a excessive chance of worldwide extinction are catalogued and highlighted within the IUCN purple record of Threatened Species. Threatened Habitats Habitat destruction comes in many forms from clear felling of forests to easy alterations in farming practices that fluctuate the total surrounding habitat. If a habitat is degraded or disappears a species may additionally become threatened. The united kingdom is in chance of losing various habitats starting from lowland calcareous grassland to mudflats and wet woodland.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, to enjoy a better life | Educational Video for Kids.
The three Rs Hello I am the Earth, yup the very planet you live on. There are three words which start with the letter R which I love. They are: Reduce, reuse and recycle. Do you know why I love them so much? Because they are almost magical words. Together they can make all living things as well as myself be happier. I said that they are “almost” magical because without your help it won't work, they need all of you children in order to do the trick. Each and every one of you are the real 3Rs magicians, those three words which can change the world. Do you want to know how? Yes? Well let's find out. The first R is for reduce. If you think about it, there are many things you don’t need. When you go to the supermarket, I am sure you could take your own canvas bags instead of using disposable ones given to you. This way you will be reducing the amount of plastic which is very contaminating. And I am sure that you don’t need to print out so many documents or photos, nor leave the lights, television or computer on when you are not using them. If you remember this, you will be reducing the amount of paper being used as well as energy, and in turn will be helping reduce the contamination. And these are just a few examples. I am sure you can think of many more different ways to reduce what you are using or creating unnecessary waste. The following question will help you with this task: Do I really need this or is this just a whim? The second R is for recycling. Now it is easier than ever to recycle things we don’t need any more so that they can be reused. Near your home you can find places, like the recycling station and containers for cans, plastic, paper or organic waste. They each have their specific colors to make them easier. By using them, you will avoid contaminating nature, the rivers and seas as well as the atmosphere, which is the air we breathe. And finally we have the third R, which refers to reuse. How many things do you think we can reuse again and again instead of throwing them away? Let´s see…a piece of paper that has only one side printed on it, a carton box, a plastic bottle…you think now. With just a bit of imagination, I am sure you will come up with many more exciting and fun new uses for them. And remember: if you apply the 3Rs rule, you will make me a much cleaner planet, with less contamination and where we all can enjoy a better life. Because as you know…children can make the world of difference.

Unconscious Bias @ Work | Google Ventures
Unconscious biases are created and reinforced by our environments and experiences. Our mind is constantly processing information, oftentimes without our conscious awareness. When we are moving fast or lack all the data, our unconscious biases fill in the gaps, influencing everything from product decisions to our interactions with coworkers. There is a growing body of research – led by scientists at Google – surrounding unconscious bias and how we can prevent it from negatively impacting our decision making.

David Suzuki on the Conservative approach to environmental reviews April 17, 2012
A wide ranging response to the federal government's decision to limit environmental assessment processes in Canada. The fundamental failure of environmentalism (May 2, 2012) http://rabble.ca/blogs/bloggers/david-suzuki/2012/05/fundamental-failure-environmentalism From the above article: "When we believe the entire world is filled with unlimited "resources" provided for our use, we act accordingly. This "anthropocentric" view envisions the world revolving around us. So we create departments of forests, fisheries and oceans, and environment whose ministers are less concerned with the health and well-being of forests, fish, oceans, or the environment than with resources and the economies that depend on them. It's almost a cliché to refer to a "paradigm shift," but that is what we need to meet the challenge of the environmental crisis our species has created. That means adopting a "biocentric" view that recognizes we are part of and dependent on the web of life that keeps the planet habitable for a demanding animal like us."

1/2: Karianne Bergen: Big data for small earthquakes
Part 1 of 2: Dr. Karianne Bergen, Harvard Data Science Initiative Fellow at Harvard U., presents "Big data for small earthquakes: a data mining approach to large-scale earthquake detection" at the MIT Earth Resources Laboratory on September 28, 2018. "Earthquake detection, the problem of extracting weak earthquake signals from continuous waveform data recorded by sensors in a seismic network, is a critical and challenging task in seismology. New algorithmic advances in “big data” and artificial intelligence have created opportunities to advance the state-of-the-art in earthquake detection algorithms. In this talk, I will present Fingerprint and Similarity Thresholding (FAST; Yoon et al, 2015), a data mining approach to large-scale earthquake detection, inspired by technology for rapid audio identification. FAST leverages locality sensitive hashing (LSH), a technique for efficiently identifying similar items in large data sets, to detect new candidate earthquakes without template waveforms ("training data"). I will present recent algorithmic extensions to FAST that enable detection over a seismic network and limit false detections due to local correlated noise (Bergen & Beroza, 2018). Using the foreshock sequence prior to the 2014 Mw 8.2 Iquique earthquake as a test case, we demonstrate that our approach is sensitive and maintains a low false detections rate, identifying five times as many events as the local seismicity catalog with a false discovery rate of less than 1%. We show that our new optimized FAST software is capable of discovering new events with unknown sources in 10 years of continuous data (Rong et al, 2018). I will end the talk with recommendations, based on our experience developing the FAST detector, for how the solid Earth geoscience community can leverage machine learning and data mining to enable data-driven discovery.

The Richest Caveman - The Doug Batchelor Story
[Quoted From: http://prophecycode.com/about-speaker.asp ] Pastor Doug Batchelor As a teenager, Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy—everything but happiness. His search led him to drugs, fights, and suicidal fantasies, but he still was convinced that life held no purpose. Before his search ended, a cave in the hills above Palm Springs became his home, and he eventually had to scavenge for food in garbage bins. The happiness Doug wanted eluded him until the day he began reading the dust-covered Bible a fellow "searcher" had left in his cave. What happened next can only be described as a miracle! His down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life stems from his own experiences. Pastor Doug is now President and Speaker for Amazing Facts Ministries, an international evangelistic organization incorporated as a denominational television ministry within the North American Division territory. He is an energetic man of vision and deep spirituality with an unusual ability to communicate not only to church oriented people, but also to the millions of secular-minded people of today. He is the author of five books and has a wife, Karen, and five children. View Doug Batchelor's testimony!

Towards Integrated Water Management: Data Strategies
Integrated Watershed Management September 15, 2011 This webinar will present the key requirements and data management issues for integrated-management of water resources and quality, a practical technology that can implement it, and what makes this new approach cost effective and more efficient than conventional strategies. The California Water Quality Monitoring Council has brought together state water quality control boards, municipal MS4 permittees, county health agencies, non-profit conservation organizations and others to improve the coordination and cost-effectiveness of water quality and ecosystem monitoring and assessment, enhance the integration of monitoring data across departments and agencies, and increase public accessibility to monitoring data and assessment information. While progress has been made towards these goals, there remain inherent hurdles in the integration of information and policies that stem from the conventional management approach applied to an integrated resource, water. Case studies to be explored include: 1) San Diego Regional Water Quality Portal-- San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board www.swrcb.ca.gov/rwqcb9/water_issues/programs/swamp/index.shtml 2) The Watershed Monitoring Programs- Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers Watershed Council 3) San Diego River Watershed Data Portal RiverWatch Data-- San Diego River Parkway Foundation, SDRWQCB, and San Diego River Conservancy http://www.ecolayers.biz/sdrpf-riverwatch/ Clay Clifton- Mr. Clifton has 15 years experience in environmental health and water qualty gained from working with the County of San Diego, Department of Environmental Health (DEH) and San Diego Coastkeeper. At the Department of Environmental Health, Clay led the Ocean Water Monitoring Program for a decade, and raised the program efficiency and effectiveness by managing data and integrating monitoring strategies with five dischargers, and coordinating reporting, investigation and notification with various stakeholders. Clay currently works with EcoLayers, Incorporated. Joe Purohit- Developing innovative solutions for complex industry problems has been the hallmark of Joe's career. In the eighties, at General Electric he pioneered the use of first-generation microprocessors, sensors and wireless communications for "smart grid" power utility applications. At AT&T he worked on digital voice/video applications and technologies, which evolved into the modern internet. In the early nineties, at Amoco he helped develop markets for fiber optic and next-generation solar power technologies (thin film). From 1994 to 1999, based in Moscow and London, Joe was country manager for BP-Amoco's electric power business in Russia, Eastern Europe and India. In Russia, he won Amoco's participation in the largest ($900 million) private sector power project. It became an exemplar for the restructuring of Russia's national electric power sector. Joe Purohit is the Founder & CEO of EcoLayers, Inc. The company produces a suite of webbased software services which created a new paradigm for cost-effective management of the "water value chain." • Towards Integrated Water Management: Data Strategies by Clay Clifton www.mywaterquality.ca.gov/monitoring_council/collaboration_network/docs/cc091511.pdf

Visionary sports executive takes the helm as next Vanderbilt athletics director
Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos today named Malcolm Turner, a proven and highly accomplished sports business executive with a passion for the transformative power of education, as the university’s new vice chancellor for athletics and university affairs and athletics director. Turner, a member of the NBA’s senior leadership team and president of the NBA G League, will join the university on Feb. 1, 2019. “I set out to find a thought leader with the skill set and vision to manage the next stage of transformation for Vanderbilt Athletics, and that’s exactly what we found in Malcolm Turner,” Zeppos said. “Malcolm is a proven executive with deep expertise in multiple business disciplines including management, marketing and development across the sports landscape of teams, leagues, facilities and major events. He also carries a deep and personal commitment to education, evidenced by his own academic achievements and his extensive community service. His exceptional skills, combined with his passion for education and drive for excellence, will bring immense value not only to the Vanderbilt Commodores, but to the rest of the university and to the entire Nashville community.” Vanderbilt interviewed a number of highly accomplished candidates and ultimately decided Turner was the right fit to carry on Vanderbilt’s athletics program. “The level of interest in this role from a superb and diverse set of candidates was nothing short of remarkable,” noted Zeppos. “This was a testament to what I believe is an inspiring and distinctive approach to the student athlete experience that I call ‘the Vanderbilt Way’ – a deep commitment to the comprehensive development of student athletes to excel on the field of play, academically and in life.” Zeppos said Turner is the right leader to take the university’s commitment to student-athletes to the next level and achieve success on and off the field. “Malcolm is a problem solver with a unique ability to bring people together around a common vision,” he added. “I am confident that he will have an immediate and profound impact on the Commodores’ success as an elite athletics program by building new relationships and new sources of revenue, while recruiting and retaining extraordinarily talented coaches, students and staff.” “I am honored to join such a storied university with a historic commitment to excellence in everything it does,” Turner said. “Vanderbilt University and the city of Nashville are on the move, and I’m excited to be a part of that transformation and help position the Commodores and Vanderbilt’s unique approach to developing student-athletes as a national and international model. I look forward to supporting and partnering with our student-athletes, coaches, facility managers, staff and the entire Commodores community to help attain and provide the resources for our teams to succeed.” Turner graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and went on to earn joint J.D./.M.B.A. degrees from Harvard University. Turner is also an accomplished community leader, having served on the advisory boards for Teach for America, the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, the UNC Board of Visitors and the board of the Morehead-Cain Scholarship Fund. As a student at UNC Chapel Hill, Turner was a Rhodes Scholar Finalist, Morehead-Cain Scholar and recipient of the Ernest L. Mackie Chancellor’s Award for character, scholarship and leadership. Turner’s tenure as president of the NBA G League is hallmarked by growth, expansion and transformation. Under Turner’s leadership, the NBA G League has enjoyed unprecedented growth across all areas of its business and basketball operations — from record numbers of NBA G League alumni in the NBA, to a first-of-its-kind expanded entitlement partnership with Gatorade, to innovative new player contract types. A champion for NBA Two-Way Contracts (newly incorporated in the NBA’s current Collective Bargaining Agreement) and NBA G League Select Contracts (newly announced as part of the G League’s recently launched professional path), Turner’s vision deepened the league’s commitment to player development.

Session 2 - CGE Approach to Assess the Impacts of Water Scarcity due to Climate Change in Japan
Dr Hiroshi Hamasaki, Senior Research Fellow, Economic Research Centre, Fujitsu Research Institute Japan is surrounded by sea and little attention has been paid to the economic impacts of water scarcity due to climate change. As a result, no research has been done to identify the economic impacts of water scarcity on Japanese economy. Partial economic model is unable to provide indirect effects of changes, but CGE (Computable General Equilibrium) model provide more complete welfare assessment, incorporating constraints and feedbacks between different economic sectors and agents. TERM Model was originally developed by COPs (Centre of Policy Studies), Victoria University and a multi-regional Australia CGE model. TERM version for Japan was constructed by Yamamoto, from 104-sector and distinguishing 47 bottom-up regions. In this research, we have incorporated water consumption module to TERM model version for Japan and aggregated regions to 14 regions to fit to water consumption statistics. 10% water supply reduction to agricultural sector will lead to negative GDP impacts on all regions except Kanto-R including Tokyo, Kanagawa and Chiba. Despite the small share of agricultural, Hokkaido, the north part of Japan, is the two most influenced regions and GDP and wage will decrease by 0.21% and 0.18% and 0.30% respectively.

Webinar - Better Engagement and Better Outcomes with PCOMS
PCOMS (the Partners for Change Outcome Management System) is a unique approach to supporting people who need help to thrive. In this free Community Research webinar, Robyn Pope and Laurie Siegel-Woodward outline the PCOMS approach and the research behind it, and share their learnings and experience of implementing PCOMS within social service agencies in Aotearoa. They describe the impact the system has had on service users, providers and organisations alike. We also hear from individuals who have experienced the PCOMS approach as clients. The webinar concludes with the direction of PCOMS in this country and offers resources for those interested in learning more about it. PCOMS gives people the power to set their own goals and measure their progress, as well as giving practitioners feedback on their practice, and providing organisations with data to develop and shape effective services. The PCOMS approach: • recognises that individuals are the experts in their own lives and therefore, their ideas about what could work for them should be incorporated into all aspects of work with that individual. • privileges the culture and ideas of the individual, to support them to discover their own unique solutions to the issues they are dealing with. • recognises the importance of the relationship between the individual and the practitioner working with them. • enables progress to be measured and addressed during each contact session. This means that any lack of improvement can be addressed quickly and transparently, which reduces drop-out. The stories from those experiencing PCOMS are powerful. They tell of being able to focus on progress, rather than being overwhelmed by a tangle of seemingly insurmountable problems. Practitioners learning to use PCOMS talk of their own journey from confusion and self-doubt, to focused interactions with their clients that led to profound change. Robyn Pope is the Manager Practice and Development at Wesley Community Action in Wellington New Zealand. She is an accredited trainer in the Strengths Based Framework and has been responsible for the implementation of this framework and PCOMS throughout Wesley Community Actions services. Robyn is a project leader with the Better Outcomes Now team. Laurie Siegel-Woodward is the Executive Director of the Partnering for Outcomes Foundation Aotearoa and director of Aliarah Ltd. Recognising PCOMS as both a quality improvement measure and an opportunity to privilege the culture of the client, Laurie advocates for its widespread use to reduce health disparities across New Zealanders and improve health outcomes.

Discriminative Learning of Social Dynamics
As a field concerned with prediction, machine learning is a natural candidate for approaching social-related prediction tasks. However, in contrast to many other domains were machine learning has been successfully applied, social phenomena remain notoriously hard to predict. In this talk I will argue that in addition to a large and rich data and powerful computational resources, the success of a learning approach critically depends on its ability to incorporate prior knowledge. It is therefore natural to ask – how can social and behavioral theory be incorporated into predictive learning frameworks? I will discuss ways in which this can be achieved, and present a general method for incorporating models of social behavior. Our method learns a class of predictors inspired by generative models of social dynamics, but under a discriminative objective. Thus, it utilizes the explanatory power of social models, while optimizing predictive accuracy. This is achieved by efficiently learning an optimal (linear) combination of (non-linear) social-dynamic models, which implicitly serve as an infinite, continuous set of features in a dual kernel space. I will present results on the tasks of influence estimation and network value prediction, and elaborate on possible extensions to tasks in domains like behavioral economics, crowdsourcing, and others. Finally, I will discuss how ad-hoc predictive methods can be used to expose and illuminate social phenomena and support behavioral hypotheses, and how such goals can motivate challenging and novel problems for machine learning.

Mars, No Go For Red Dragon, SpaceX rethinks Red Dragon Mars Mission
Mars no go for Red Dragon SpaceX rethinks Red Dragon Mars mission Musk won’t be sending Red Dragon 2 Mars. In his recent statement Elon Musk when asked about Red Dragon Mars mission which is scheduled for 2020, confirmed long suspicions that Red Dragon 2020 Mars mission is no go. During a speech at the International Space Station Research and Development Conference, Musk confirmed that the company is no longer working to land Dragon propulsively for commercial crew. SpaceX had maintained that in future crew contracts with NASA, it would use Dragon's thrusters to land on land. "The reason we decided not to pursue that heavily is that it would have taken a tremendous amount of effort to qualify that for safety for crew transport," "There was a time when I thought the Dragon approach to landing on Mars, where you've got a base heat shield and side mounted thrusters, would be the right way to land on Mars. But now I'm pretty confident that is not the right way." Musk added that his company has come up with a "far better" approach to landing on Mars that will be incorporated into the next iteration of the company's proposed Mars transportation hardware. Musk laid out an initial version of this "Interplanetary Transport System" in 2016, but he has said an updated architecture is coming soon. Perhaps at the 2017 International Astronautical Conference in Adelaide, Australia. The event will be held from September 25 to 29. The new Mars architecture will be "more affordable" and slightly smaller, Musk said. Although initial plan for Interplanetary Transport seemed doable, it just couldn’t be done on the budget Elon proposed. The revised plan should prove at least financially, a success, we are yet to see what SpaceX plans to do in that regard. Elon Musk is realizing, sending humans to Mars won’t be easy or cheap, and even though he has some ideas how to get us there, he’s nowhere near technically able to deliver his vision. NASA was trying to send humans to Mars for past 30 years and NASA has far greater technological and scientific resources than SpaceX. Yet they struggle! These delays will undoubtedly delay first manned mission to Mars, perhaps 2030 seems most optimistic timeframe now.

Property Rights Approach to Animal Rights | New Books Network #64
Original: http://newbooksnetwork.com/john-hadley-animal-property-rights-a-theory-of-habitat-rights-for-wild-animals-lexington-books-2015/ --- In This Episode --- John Hadley’s Animal Property Rights: A Theory of Habitat Rights for Wild Animals (Lexington Books, 2015) presents a novel approach to addressing habitat and biodiversity loss: extending liberal property rights to wildlife. Hadley argues that a guardianship system could effectively protect the rights of wild animals to resources in the territories they inhabit. In turn, the guardians of particular animals or a particular species could challenge land use plans that might threaten the ability of these animals to meet their basic needs. Though grounded in philosophical theory, Hadley’s focus is pragmatic. He is interested in producing an institutional design that could be effectively incorporated into policy and practice. His proposal also aims to solve some key problems in wildlife conservation. It bridges the seemingly divergent interests of environmentalists focused on the protection of the collective (e.g., ecosystems) and those of animal rights proponents focused on the survival of individuals. Here, common ground is found in habitat protection, a shared value that reconciles the differences between these groups. Hadley’s proposal also ensures animals become vocal stakeholders in land use and conservation initiatives, able to compete with agendas that might be incompatible with animal or habitat protection. It also begins to overcome the anthropocentrism that (perhaps inevitably) pervades conservation practice. By determining animal property rights boundaries on the basis of territorial behavior, Hadley’s proposal privileges animal actions and interactions over human-centric interests. Although their rights would be advocated by a human guardian in a person-centered legal system, if implemented, this theory would ensure the interests of wild animals are taken seriously. This is a book of critical relevance to those interested in issues of human-wildlife conflict, biodiversity protection, and human/nonhuman relationships. --- Sources and Links --- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Animal-Property-Rights-Habitat-Animals/dp/0739189255 https://search.proquest.com/openview/436f51f605516e44a5f87db05a7172a6/1?pq-origsite=gscholar&cbl=55441 https://york.academia.edu/JoshMilburn --- Platforms --- https://www.facebook.com/NewBooksNetwork/ https://twitter.com/newbooksnetwork --- Subscribe, download, review on iTunes, Stitcher, PlayerFM or Podbean to listen on the go --- https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/new-books-in-environmental-studies/id425223410?mt=2 https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/new-books-network https://player.fm/series/new-books-network https://www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/gsijp-3fd4c/New-Books-Network-Podcast -------------- Join these communities: -------------- 🍎 Community Discord Directory: https://discord.gg/bYpfzRT 🍒 Philosophical Vegan Forum: https://philosophicalvegan.com -------------- Help share these resources out: -------------- 🍊 Philosophical Vegan Wiki: https://tinyurl.com/y7jc6kh6 🥕 Vegan Video Resource Library: https://tinyurl.com/yb3udm8x -------------- Hit me up: -------------- 🍓 Email: [email protected] 🍇 Facebook: https://facebook.com/activistjourneys101 🥑 Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/theo_slade --------------

Last week we started our discussion about malware by breaking down its major types. These distinctions are important because they help us craft the right strategies for defending ourselves; namely how we prioritize our time, money, and resources. But when it comes to tactics, we need to have a better sense of how malware works so we know how to defend ourselves.

MCDHH Public Safety Update Fall 2018
MCDHH Fall 2018 Public Safety Update Hello, Public safety is always a priority. The month of September brought more of a focus on safety for MCDHH. We are all aware of the disastrous natural gas explosions that took place in the Northeast area of Massachusetts: Lawrence, Andover and North Andover. MCDHH partnered with the Red Cross, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services and other State agencies to provide onsite communication access and support to the survivors of the explosions. Our goal is to provide communication access for those who survive a disaster. We deployed both staff and contracted interpreters to shelters and to assist individuals in applying for assistance after the explosions. In total 43 hours of interpreter services were provided to ensure individuals had communication access after this disaster. Our Governor held a press conference to inform the community about what was happening after the explosions. We provided 24 hours’ worth of interpreting services during the time period after the explosions, throughout the weekend, so the community would be aware of recovery efforts and the support services that were being provided. During the process of recovery seeking shelter and applying for assistance, communication, resources and access to services are all an important. We provided case management staff and staff from our victim’s assistance program. It is critical people in the area of the explosion understand the risk of hearing loss. We provided the resources, information, and staff support for those in need who survived that disaster. Also coordination was a significant part of our staffs’ effort to support people in Massachusetts who survived that disaster. I want to thank the skilled interpreters who interpreted on site, the case management staff and I want to thank our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Independent Living staff who worked in the program serving that area from DEAF Incorporated. All of those are critical resources we have here in Massachusetts. When a disaster happens it is critical that we pull together as a team in our approach and be able to support deaf and hard of hearing individuals who are living through that crisis. September 29th the city of Worchester hosted a public safety day. It was a tremendous collaborative effort. The task force included the City of Worcester, the departments of fire, police and ambulance services, Center for Living and Working’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Independent Living Services and MCDHH staff. It was a tremendous opportunity to learn, interact, prepare for emergencies and understand the role of our firefighters, police, EMS and community. Public safety requires collaboration. Public safety day in Worcester was a great model. We saw presentations, received information, watched a demonstration of a police dog, we had an opportunity to learn how medical emergency services are provided and how we can communicate better to prepare for emergencies. Public safety day is an excellent model and an excellent idea. Our goal is to see communities collaborating together to establish similar public safety days throughout Massachusetts. Public safety is important for Deaf and Hard of Hearing drivers. We’ve seen, heard and discussed with many of you about the importance of an effective way to interact with the police. When a Deaf or Hard of Hearing driver is pulled over, how can you prepare to communicate effectively, more effectively and safely. MCDHH gathered ideas and information in order to put together a model of a visor card. We have prepared that with input from the community. We are close to completion and will then print and distribute those visor cards. It’s a great opportunity to give people these cards to keep in their car and use them for very basic visual communication to show police should it become necessary when they be pulled over while driving. We are preparing to distribute the visor cards and we hope you will collaborate with us and share them widely. Safety is a priority for all of us here in Massachusetts. Thank you for your collaboration. Together we have better communication access and better safety for all of us here in Massachusetts.

Aboriginal perspectives
Aboriginal perspectives Career Stage - Highly Accomplished Main Focus area - 2.4 School - Sturt Street Community School The teacher embeds Aboriginal perspectives into a unit of work through an investigation into the Aboriginal land management practice of fire-stick farming. The students consider the ways in which Aboriginal Australians used fire in the past and present and research the procedure of fire-stick farming. Students then demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how and why fire-stick farming was used by acting out the process. The teacher then discusses the ways in which Aboriginal histories and cultures could be incorporated into a colleague’s Mathematics class using a resource database. http://www.aitsl.edu.au/australian-professional-standards-for-teachers/illustrations-of-practice/detail?id=IOP00136

Shakti Caterina Maggi - Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview
Discussion of this interview in the BatGap Community Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Batgap/permalink/2448360748723044/ Shakti Caterina Maggi has been sharing a message of awakening to our true nature as One Consciousness since 2003, with workshops and meetings held in Italy, Europe, and around the world. Although in the vein of the Advaita and non dual tantric tradition, Shakti shares a very contemporary approach to self-realization and reveals the real possibility of seeing what we are and embodying it in our everyday life with clarity, wisdom and humour. The first glimpses and non-definitive openings to the Self and the true nature of reality began to occur for her at a very early age. At around 27, these temporary windows of our true nature brought her to a state of great inner openness, without having the cognition that what was happening was called “awakening” or “enlightenment” in other cultures. In January 2003, while working as a financial reporter in Milan, she had the first experience of kundalini awakening. “Everything vibrated from its infinite nature: my body, the room, the bed I was on were all a unique vibration of love that expanded and dissolved itself in a space without borders. I was myself and at the same time I was no longer me, Existence itself was my nature. After about two hours everything disappeared into nothingness and I was surprised to wake up in the morning still alive. Honestly, I was certain I was going to die that night. Now there was something vast and completely silent that looked at a funny little me, acting like a cartoon character, moving but also loving. “ For the first time, she realized she needed a spiritual guide. Knowing that all this had occurred without her conscious desire or intentional action, she simply waited for life itself to deliver someone able to clarify what was unfolding. Each prayer became a simple “amen”, may thy will be done, in the recognition that existence itself, and the Divine through it, always carried what was truly needed. Four months later, she met Bodhi Avasa in a satsang in Milan, and after only five days she encountered a definitive experience of self-recognition. “I suddenly realized that Caterina had never existed. It was just a thought of My Mind, and that My Mind was the Divine Mind. No separate identity existed, but only a single Self, empty and aware, from which Existence itself was born as in a dream. “ It took a few months for this quantum leap to stabilize, as mind and body were traversed by profound and transformational understandings. Avasa’s guidance supported her in crossing through those energetic phenomena without attaching to any of them, and in developing an understanding that could erase the fear that emerges in this integration process. Encouraged by Avasa, she soon thereafter started to share her experience, although it was only in 2011 that she began to hold true satsang. The process of integration of the awakening, and purification from what Ramana Maharshi referred to as vāsanas (latent tendencies), required several years, allowing her to develop a deep understanding of the path that takes place after awakening and its integration into daily life. Since then, many people have met her and recognized the vast and transformative reach of such a simple and direct message.

School Inc. Episode 3: Forces and Choices - Full Video
Ten years after Chile reformed its education system, Sweden followed suit, and so Sweden is Andrew Coulson’s first stop in episode three of School, Inc. All private schools in Sweden are now fully tax supported, and parents can choose between these so-called “free” schools and the local public schools. The global journey continues, visiting highly successful private schools in Sweden, London and India, where the resistance to education as a business has lessened. Coulson is joined by the administrators of these schools to examine the secrets of their success, learning that some of India’s highly successful private schools serve eager poor students and parents at little more than a dollar a week. School, Inc. comes full circle to conclude in the English countryside where the Industrial Revolution began. Then as now, Coulson suggests, education was perhaps the only field in which successful entrepreneurship was not celebrated. He concludes “What if we allowed all education entrepreneurs to put their own money on the line in an effort to better serve us, gaining or losing just as entrepreneurs do in other fields? And what if we made sure that everyone had access to that wide-open marketplace? Would we then see excellence scale-up in education?

2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation?
What may have started as a science fiction speculation—that perhaps the universe as we know it is a computer simulation—has become a serious line of theoretical and experimental investigation among physicists, astrophysicists, and philosophers. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, hosts and moderates a panel of experts in a lively discussion about the merits and shortcomings of this provocative and revolutionary idea. The 17th annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate took place at The American Museum of Natural History on April 5, 2016. #IsaacAsimov #debates #simulations #universe 2016 Asimov Panelists: David Chalmers Professor of philosophy, New York University Zohreh Davoudi Theoretical physicist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology James Gates  Theoretical physicist, University of Maryland Lisa Randall Theoretical physicist, Harvard University Max Tegmark  Cosmologist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology The late Dr. Isaac Asimov, one of the most prolific and influential authors of our time, was a dear friend and supporter of the American Museum of Natural History.  In his memory, the Hayden Planetarium is honored to host the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate — generously endowed by relatives, friends, and admirers of Isaac Asimov and his work — bringing the finest minds in the world to the Museum each year to debate pressing questions on the frontier of scientific discovery.  Proceeds from ticket sales of the Isaac Asimov Memorial Debates benefit the scientific and educational programs of the Hayden Planetarium. 2017 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: De-Extinction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LnAtMeSVeY&index=1&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ 2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgSZA3NPpBs&index=2&t=25s&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ 2015 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Water, Water https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSF79uS3t04&index=3&t=25s&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ 2014 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Selling Space https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbmFeEIKBFI&index=4&t=25s&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ 2013 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Existence of Nothing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OLz6uUuMp8&index=5&t=25s&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ 2012 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Faster Than the Speed of Light https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qlLW60wOjo&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ&index=6 2011 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Theory of Everything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eb8_3BUHcuw&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ&index=7 Rose Center Anniversary Isaac Asimov Debate: Is Earth Unique? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ji_GdAk9vU&index=8&list=PLrfcruGtplwGKzxDI_Ne06NlpOKt-yonZ&t=25s *** Subscribe to our channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

A Sustainable Design Fiction: Green Practices
Full Title: A Sustainable Design Fiction: Green Practices Authors: Ron Wakkary, Audrey Desjardins, Sabrina Hauser, Leah A. Maestri Abstract: In this paper, we argue that an approach informed by practice theory coupled with design fiction provides useful insights into the role of interaction design with respect to environmental sustainability. We argue that a practice-oriented approach can help interaction designers step away from models of individual behavior and studies of artifacts towards seeing sustainable behaviors as part of multidimensional and interrelated practices and practice elements. We analyze two previously conducted studies. The first study of everyday repair focuses on how people repair their broken objects. The second study of green-DIY examines how green enthusiasts facilitate their practices of making sustainable DIY (do-it-yourself) projects. We describe the practices of everyday repairers and green enthusiasts in terms of materials, competences, and meanings, and the interrelations among those elements, using the framework of Shove et al. (2012). We argue that understanding the dynamics of practice and their unique configurations is a starting point to redefine the roles of sustainable interaction design (SID). We propose that designers design towards resources and tools in ways that reflect on the challenges of intelligibility of their design interventions in practices. In addition to considering SID in the light of practice theories, we reveal how design fictions are readily incorporated into green practices in ways that transform those practices and hold implications for transformations of design as well. We bring forward opportunities for designers to co-design with DIY enthusiasts, targeted as practitioners in their own right, designing toward or within a design fiction. As a result, we conclude with the possibility for sustainable interaction designers to become practice-oriented designers who design with transparent open strategies and accessible materials and competences.
