We know. "In The Know" took a several week long — unannounced — hiatus. Maggie and I apologize, but we have been working on a number of international efforts that have kept us occupied!

Work From Home | Make Money Schemes | Business Opportunity in UK Chief Seattle's Speech of 1854 - Version 1 Version 1 (below) appeared in the Seattle Sunday Star on Oct. 29, 1887, in a column by Dr. Henry A. Smith. "CHIEF SEATTLE'S 1854 ORATION" - ver . 1 Yonder sky that has wept tears of compassion upon my people for centuries untold, and which to us appears changeless and eternal, may change. There was a time when our people covered the land as the waves of a wind-ruffled sea cover its shell-paved floor, but that time long since passed away with the greatness of tribes that are now but a mournful memory. Youth is impulsive. Our good father in Washington--for I presume he is now our father as well as yours, since King George has moved his boundaries further north--our great and good father, I say, sends us word that if we do as he desires he will protect us. To us the ashes of our ancestors are sacred and their resting place is hallowed ground. Your dead cease to love you and the land of their nativity as soon as they pass the portals of the tomb and wander away beyond the stars.

BRE Association of Charitable Foundations, ACF : Uk association supporting grantmaking trusts and charitable foundations Rainforest Action Network | Environmentalism with teeth. Welcome to ARKive - Images of life on Earth Wildscreen's Arkive project was launched in 2003 and grew to become the world's biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth. With the help of over 7,000 of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, Arkive.org featured multi-media fact-files for more than 16,000 endangered species. Freely accessible to everyone, over half a million people every month, from over 200 countries, used Arkive to learn and discover the wonders of the natural world. Since 2013 Wildscreen was unable to raise sufficient funds from trusts, foundations, corporates and individual donors to support the year-round costs of keeping Arkive online. Therefore, the charity had been using its reserves to keep the project online and was unable to fund any dedicated staff to maintain Arkive, let alone future-proof it, for over half a decade. Therefore, a very hard decision was made to take the www.arkive.org website offline in February 2019.
