(Photograph courtesy of NASA.) The Expanding War Against Nature By Julian Rose There can be no more certain way to decimate life on Earth than through the act of setting in reverse the natural expansiveness of nature. Yet that is exactly what has been happening for the past two centuries, through the relentless eradication of farm and forest biodiversity in a fixated, tunnel vision pursuit of specialisation and profit. Witness the fresh food market: so reduced has the range of edible vegetables available to the modern shopper become, that just seven varieties now constitute approximately 90% of green foods sold in post industrial Northern European and North American supermarket chains.

For cardio benefits the key is walking fast enough to get your heart rate up. Blog: Landsat With the help of satellite images fifth and sixth grade students at Mr. Tim Blum’s geography class (photo below) at the UW Lab School got a birds-eye view of how humans have impacted or modified their environments (31 January 2011). Images acquired by satellites decades apart showed cleared forests, irrigated crop fields in the middle of the deserts, altered landscapes (new roads and water bodies), and urban growth. As part of the Earth Observation Day (EOD) activities, WyomingView coordinator Ramesh Sivanpillai described the utility of images acquired by satellites are useful for monitoring changes on earth’s surface.

Geo-Primary Assessing Primary Geography Teacher assessment is a complex matter, but here are a few tools to help you with part of the process. Principles and purposes of assessment Why we should fear a cashless world The health food chain Tossed has just opened the UK’s first cashless cafe. It’s another step towards the death of cash.

blog » Hexbins! Binning is a general term for grouping a dataset of N values into less than N discrete groups. These groups/bins may be spatial, temporal, or otherwise attribute-based.
