Education has helped small farmers become more efficient, but wheat yields are still a third below the world’s average. With more than a third of Ethiopians malnourished, the government is courting industrial farms to help close the gap. By Joel K. Bourne, Jr. Photographs by Robin Hammond She never saw the big tractor coming. “No one even talked to me,” the 45-year-old Chirime says, her voice rising with anger. Chirime’s situation is hardly unique. Sugarcane hawkers await customers on the Nacala railway in northern Mozambique, where Brazil and Japan hope to turn 35 million acres of small farms over to industrial-scale soybean production. Though some corporate farms have pushed small growers off their land, Bananalandia, a 3,500-acre enterprise near Maputo, has improved life for the locals. Many of those hurdles are now falling. It’s an optimistic vision, for sure.

Contemporary Art Daily Echorenovate Introducing Residential Wind Turbines The two main types of wind turbine are Vertical axis (VAWT) and Horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT). Vertical axis wind turbines are beautiful pieces of architecture, but at present are more like revolving sculptures, as opposed to the more efficient horizontal axis wind turbines. - See Green Favourites section, and explore the Sustainability Forum links for further information. So, no surprise then that we have opted for HAWT. The blade design has been developed to efficiently match the PMG (permanent magnet generator) design, matching the wind/blade speed & diameter to the coil windings, and hence give carefully balanced electricity to the load. So we achieve optimal output from modest breezes to howling gales, where the clever geometry of the furling tail design (French: "mise en drapeau") pulls the blades away from the wind if it becomes excessive. - We say the turbines are "dancing”. So.

Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner: Rare Photos, 1949 Is he the greatest living painter in the United States? That was the direct, provocative question asked in an August 1949 LIFE magazine article that helped cement Jackson Pollock’s reputation. It was a question Pollock spent much of the rest of his life struggling to answer — while desperately hoping to show the skeptics why LIFE was right to even ask such a monumental question in the first place. As the single most recognizable practitioner of Abstract Expressionism — the movement that put America and, specifically, post-World War II New York at the epicenter of painting’s avant-garde — Pollock was a genuine art star. But he soon abandoned the radical “drip” technique that had earned him both fame and, among some art critics, vilification and spent the last few years of his life battling the twin demons of depression and alcoholism. Today, a painting from Pollock’s “drip period” can fetch north of $100 million at auction.
