Earth - 11 of Britain's most legendary trees

Only by nurturing the seed of enthusiasm year after year will we be able to cultivate a lasting environmental legacy in our parks, streets, woods and green spaces First came Dutch elm disease in the 1920s, a fungal pathogen that killed tens of millions of elm trees in Britain, spread by beetles it continues to be a serious threat. Fast forward to today and another fungus is on the verge of causing mass destruction among another of our tree species.

This time the tree under threat is ash and the pathogen is ash dieback. “Ash dieback has shown us what can happen to one species and will change our landscape just as much as Dutch elm disease did,” says Pauline Buchanan Black, director general of The Tree Council. It has the potential to cause significant damage to the population and may now already be too late to prevent. And The Tree Council are hoping as many of us as possible take part in this year's annual National Tree Week. Untitled. Soke S.

Its potential to improve the quality of our life is infinite, with the scientific method being its only hindrance – to prove beyond reasonable doubt that we are all one. GCP is the brainchild of Dr. Roger D. Nelson, a professor at Princeton University who holds a PhD in Experimental Cognitive Psychology. He has the distinction of being the first scientist to find a way of measuring with mathematical models what ancient spiritual traditions have always claimed: we are all one.

The scientific name given to this phenomenon is Electrogaiagram (EGG). Ordinary-things-gratitude. Mark nepo poems. 12033145_1176759965673079_567003383832282127_n. Flow. Mark nepo poems.

Full text of Pope Francis' speech to US Congress

Vice-President, Mr. Speaker, Honourable Members of Congress, Dear Friends, I am most grateful for your invitation to address this Joint Session of Congress in “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. Each son or daughter of a given country has a mission, a personal and social responsibility. A political society endures when it seeks, as a vocation, to satisfy common needs by stimulating the growth of all its members, especially those in situations of greater vulnerability or risk.

Yours is a work which makes me reflect in two ways on the figure of Moses. Today I would like not only to address you, but through you the entire people of the United States. These are men and women who are not concerned simply with paying their taxes, but in their own quiet way sustain the life of society. Personal tribute to great Americans 'Voice of faith' Refugee crisis Dialogue and peace.

India's unusual protests: Pink underwear, poop and snakes - BBC News

Hardik Patel, along with hundreds of thousands of supporters, dominated the headlines in India last week when he led a massive protest which shut down Ahmedabad, the main city in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujarat. Now he is about to set out to replicate independence hero Mahatma Gandhi's famous "salt march" from Ahmedabad to Dandi - except he's going to reverse the route by starting on the beach of Dandi and ending at the Gandhi ashram (commune) in Ahmedabad.

By any means necessary

It entered the popular civil rights culture through a speech given by Malcolm X at the Organization of Afro-American Unity Founding Rally on June 28, 1964. It is generally considered to leave open all available tactics for the desired ends, including violence; however, the “necessary” qualifier adds a caveat—if violence is not necessary, then presumably, it should not be used.

Jean-Paul Sartre[edit] The phrase is translation of a sentence used in French intellectual Jean-Paul Sartre's play Dirty Hands: I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. Malcolm X[edit]
