U.S. calls for rapid progress on greenhouse-gas pact. Cutting back harmful hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), used in refrigeration, aerosols and air conditioning, could avoid global temperature rise of 0.5 degrees by end of century By Francois Murphy and Lesley Wroughton VIENNA, July 22 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged U.N. nations on Friday to reach a deal to cut the use of a family of powerful greenhouse gases and take a big step towards keeping global warming in check.

Officials from nearly 200 countries are meeting this week to hammer out an agreement to cut the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which are used in refrigeration, aerosols and air conditioning, by amending the landmark Montreal Protocol. The Montreal Protocol succeeded in slashing the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which damage the ozone layer. The HFCs that have often replaced them, while better for the ozone layer, are greenhouse gases far more potent than carbon dioxide.

Starbucks trials recyclable cups in move to tackle landfill waste | Environment. Starbucks will trial a fully recyclable coffee cup in its UK shops, which could eventually divert huge numbers of cups away from landfill.

The cup, invented by entrepreneur and engineer Martin Myerscough, aims to reduce the environmental impact of the 2.5bn paper coffee cups used in the UK each year. Earlier this year it emerged that only one in 400 were recycled and the rest sent to landfill or incineration. This led to calls for a ban, an idea the government rejected. Conventional takeaway cups produced in bulk are made from paper but are laminated with plastic, making them difficult to recycle. The Frugalpac cup, which launches on Thursday, has a thin film liner designed to separate easily from the paper in the recycling process.

The cups will feature in a forthcoming TV investigation by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Myerscough said: “Hugh’s team approached us back in January to find out more about the cup, which was still in prototype form. 5 Fun Short Video Tools to Help You Jump In to Video Content Creation.

Icebreakers that Rock. We’re coming up fast on the beginning of another school year. That means a new batch of students to get to know, students who need to be made comfortable in your classroom, and who need to get to know each other. It’s essential to start building relationships with your students right from the start. And how to accomplish this? Icebreakers. I planned to create a nice big post with dozens of icebreaker ideas you could choose from. They require students to take massive social risks with people they barely know. So I have scrapped my plan to curate good icebreakers from the Internet. In my own classrooms, with middle school, high school, and college students, I have played all three of these games with great success. Each of these will likely sound familiar to you, although the names may not be exactly what you’ve known them as. Blobs and Lines Here are some sample prompts you can use for this game: Concentric Circles Do you play any sports?

This or That Sample questions for This or That: Top secret pages of 9/11 report released to public. In a vault under the capitol, 28 pages of one of the country's most sensitive documents holding 9/11 secrets have been shelved for 13 years. Today, after pressure from former members of Congress - many of whom spoke out on 60 Minutes in April - and relatives of victims, the pages have been released to the public. Former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, who helped write the 9/11 report and read the redacted pages, told correspondent Steve Kroft in April, the pages could reveal a "substantial" Saudi support network for the 9/11 hijackers while they were in the U.S.

"I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn't speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn't have a high school education-- could've carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States," Graham told Kroft. With today's release, the question of Saudi Arabia's involvement is still unclear.
