Aquaculture Solaiman Sheik shows off the harvest from his father’s small pond near Khulna, Bangladesh: freshwater prawns, a profitable export. The family also raises fish in the pond and, in the dry season, rice fertilized by fish waste—a polyculture that has tripled output with little environmental downside.

Cão sobrevive e torna-se cão do ano de 2013 | Doglink A American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), atribuiu a Xena, uma cadela do estado de Georgia, o prémio nacional mais honroso: o cão do ano. A história de Xena já está a inspirar o mundo não só por ter sido uma sobrevivente, mas por ter sido uma salvadora. Em 15 de Setembro de 2012, um funcionário do controlo animal de DeKalb, na Georgia, respondeu a uma chamada telefónica acerca de uma cachorra pit bull extremamente desnutrida que tinha sido abandonada num quintal. O funcionário foi buscar a cadela que se encontrava à beira da morte e levou-a para a associação Friends of Animals DeKalb. Como a probabilidade de sobreviver era mínima, uma das fundadoras da associação decidiu levá-la para a sua casa de modo a proporcionar-lhe um final de vida mais descansado. Por milagre, a pequena cachorra conseguiu recuperar e foi-lhe dado o nome de Xena. Xena foi então posta para adopção e em Março de 2013 Linda Hickey tomou a decisão de ficar com ela.
