Australian scientists warn urgent action needed to save 19 'collapsing' ecosystems

A groundbreaking report – the result of work by 38 scientists from 29 universities and government agencies – details the degradation of coral reefs, arid outback deserts, tropical savanna, the waterways of the Murray-Darling Basin, mangroves in the Gulf of Carpentaria, and forests stretching from the rainforests of the far north to Gondwana-era conifers in Tasmania. The list of damaged ecosystems extends beyond the continent to include subantarctic tundra of world heritage-listed Macquarie Island and moss beds in the east Antarctic. Bergstrom said the collapses were a result of the ecosystems experiencing multiple pressures simultaneously. Some, such as rising average temperatures due to the climate crisis, habitat loss and invasive species, are chronic.

The Arctic Ocean might have been filled with freshwater during ice ages

Ancient climate conditions and ocean behaviour are often reconstructed by analysing marine sediments. But Arctic sediments can be difficult to interpret, and much is still unknown about how the Arctic Ocean changed during specific glacial and interglacial periods over the past few million years2,3. Writing in Nature, Geibert et al.4 report analyses of an isotope of the element thorium in sea-floor sediments, which suggest that the Arctic Ocean swung between being filled with salt water and fresh water during periods of the two most recent glacials.

The authors base their argument on records of thorium-230, produced from the decay of dissolved uranium that is naturally present in seawater. Eu.usatoday.

Nine months after COVID-19 changed everything, parents are asking the same question they asked at the start: Will my children be OK?

Permissive Parenting: What It Means, Examples & The Other Styles

Essentially, you are creating boundaries within the family unit. "Secure boundaries set by the parent, not negotiated by the child, reduce anxiety. Rules and routines like meal times, bedtimes, homework time, and screen time—that are set and monitored by the parent—create predictability in a child's life. Predictability reduces uncertainty, and that reduces anxiety," notes author and therapist Krissy Pozatek, MSW. "Parents should not value a child's self-expression over a child's sense of security.

The effects of smartphone use on parenting. Parents may worry that spending time on their smartphones has a negative impact on their relationships with their children.

The effects of smartphone use on parenting

However, a new comprehensive analysis published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry found that this is unlikely to be the case. In the analysis of data from 3, 659 parent-based surveys, the authors tested 84 different possibilities to assess whether smartphone use was associated with parenting, and they found little evidence. Accordingly, they explored whether the effect of phone use on parenting depended on whether it displaced time with family and was associated with family conflict.

Eu.usatoday. Amex Strikes Again! New Platinum Card Offer is Worth Your Attention. The past few weeks have been extremely interesting for credit card enthusiasts like me. After a few months of relative quiet (aside from certain travel-minded cards adding temporary benefits), offerings have really ramped up in a major way.

Now, American Express has rolled out a new welcome bonus for its perennial favorite Platinum card that really goes above and beyond. To start things off, the new offer allows new cardholders to earn 75,000 Membership Rewards points after they spend at least $5,000 in their first six months of membership. If you’re keeping score, that’s 15,000 more points than the standard offer and an extended timeline for that minimum spend (six months as opposed to three). That latter point could actually be key given the relatively large sum required.

In the Interest of Transparency: My Personal Finances and Approach to Money. When I first started writing about personal finance, it’s safe to say that I didn’t really know what I was doing. That’s why I mostly took the approach of sharing what I was learning in regards to finance as well as sharing experiences I had already acquired. Additionally, I’ve often strived to give context for this advice as I’m keenly aware that not everything I say or suggest will apply to everyone’s situation. As important as this is to me, I realized I could actually do more. A few weeks ago, I reviewed the book The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel — and it was awesome! While I loved the book overall, one part I thought was really interesting was at the end when the author disclosed some of his personal finance realities and beliefs. Single Parenting in a Pandemic.
