HONG KONG — The United States says it will expand air-quality monitoring at some overseas diplomatic missions, following several years of reporting pollution data in China.
The goal is to increase awareness of the health risks of outdoor air pollution, which easily spreads across borders, Secretary of State said in announcing the program on Wednesday. The program is intended to help United States citizens abroad reduce their exposure to pollution and to help other countries develop their own air-quality monitoring through training and exchanges with American experts, he said. “We’re hoping that this tool can also expand international cooperation when it comes to curbing air pollution,” Mr. Kerry said. The program, run in conjunction with the , will begin to operate in India in a few months. American diplomatic missions will also monitor air quality in , and elsewhere, Mr. The move angered the Chinese government, which said the information could threaten social stability. The First Victims of the First Crusade. Photo THE first victims of the First Crusade, inspired in 1096 by the supposedly sacred mission of retaking Jerusalem from Muslims, were European Jews.
Anyone who considers it religiously and politically transgressive to compare the behavior of medieval Christian soldiers to modern Islamic terrorism might find it enlightening to read this bloody story, as told in both Hebrew and Christian chronicles. The message from the medieval past is that religious violence seldom limits itself to one target and expands to reach the maximum number of available victims.

Government Dietary Guidelines May Back Off Meat To Be More Environmentally Friendly. By Kiley Kroh Posted on Share this: "Government Dietary Guidelines May Back Off Meat To Be More Environmentally Friendly" Share: CREDIT: Shutterstock When the federal government releases its guidelines for healthy eating at the end of the month, the updated version may reflect not only what’s best for human health but the health of the environment, as well.
Once they are finalized, the new guidelines will be reflected in the USDA’s MyPlate icon, which replaced the famous food pyramid in 2011. As study after study has shown, meat production takes a heavy toll on the environment and reducing their meat consumption may be one of the most impactful steps an individual can take to live more sustainably. As the global population grows and the standard of living in countries like China improves, demand for meat is projected to rise, prompting some scientists to urge people in wealthier nations to curb their meat consumption.
