"CHIEF SEATTLE'S 1854 ORATION" - ver . 1 News for career advisors Environment roles are rapidly emerging and evolving as organisations move from greening their operations to greening the whole organisation, offering a wealth of opportunities for those with a passion about creating a sustainable future. But what steps should you take to move into an environmental practitioner role? 1.

Green Book Live MCS is an independent UKAS accredited quality assurance scheme assessing microgeneration products and installers against robust quality, performance and safety criteria.

Apply for MCS certification Our technical experts can conduct the widest range of MCS assessments of any Certification Body. We certificate products and installers for solar PV, heat pumps, biomass, micro-CHP, solar thermal, wind turbines and pitched roof mounting systems. Fic: First Up Against the Wall (the grease and diesel oil remix) Title: First Up Against the Wall (the grease and diesel oil remix)Fandom: MerlinPairing: Gwen/MorganaRating: RWord Count: 4453Summary: Morgana drives like a maniac, has more money than sense and a weird obsession with semi-public sex, and Gwen thinks she's falling in love with her anyway.A/N: Remix of Grease-stained by heathershaped 1.The first time Gwen meets Morgana she nearly concusses herself on the underside of a Vauxhall Astra. Her dad has taken the tow-truck to rescue a motorist stranded at the side of the dual carriageway, and Gwen is in the inspection pit, finishing up a service before she takes her lunch break. She turns and starts at the sight of a pair of shoes up on ground level, she hadn't heard anybody come in. In the confined space her slight jump is enough to clatter her head off the car.

Ocean Energy: Tidal and Wave Power Earth’s global oceans cover approximately 71% of the planet, roughly 3.6×10^8 km squared. It has been estimated that if humans find an efficient way to harness at least 0.2% of the potential energy within wave power and tidal power, enough energy would be generated to power the entire world. Ocean power has been utilized by humans for hundreds of years and is one of the oldest forms of energy known to us. For example, tide mills and water wheels have been used successfully to power farms, homes, factories, and electricity. This is a primitive method, but contains some of the basic principles that are being tested in modern ocean energy devices.

Ecologist job profile Ecologists are concerned with ecosystems as a whole, the abundance and distribution of organisms (people, plants, animals), and the relationships between organisms and their environment. Ecologists usually choose a specialist area (e.g. freshwater, marine, terrestrial, fauna, flora) and then carry out a range of tasks relating to that area. When starting out, ecologists often conduct surveys to identify, record and monitor species and their habitats. With career progression, work is likely to become more wide-ranging, with senior ecologists getting more involved in policy and management work. It is important that ecologists are aware of environmental policies as their work commonly has to comply with European and UK environmental legislation.

LEED Know we're back! We know. "In The Know" took a several week long — unannounced — hiatus. Famous Journeys - Wiki Travel Guide edit Introduction There are many forms of travelling. You can take a city break, relax for a week on a nice beach, spend a month in a country visiting several places or even do an extensive round the world trip. Tidal power [Tidal Power] Navigation Introduction, Tidal barrage, Current technology, Pumping, Economics, Social Implications, Environmental Aspects,Tidal streams, Current technology, Economics, Social Implications, Environmental Aspects, Conclusions Introduction If there is one thing we can safely predict and be sure of on this planet, it is the coming and going of the tide. This gives this form of renewable energy a distinct advantage over other sources that are not as predictable and reliable, such as wind or solar.

Marine scientist job profile Marine scientists are involved in research, analysis and forecasts in relation to the oceans, their life forms and coastal areas. They analyse the sea and its interaction with the land, atmosphere and sea floors and use the information gained to predict changes to the earth's infrastructure, inform statutory legislation and encourage environmental protection. Marine science is a broad-ranging field that covers subjects as diverse as: biogeochemistry and ecosytems dynamics;coastal processes;geology and geophysics;hydrographic surveying;marine biology;oceanography, ocean modelling and forecasting;paleooceanography;zoology. Marine scientists are employed by universities, international organisations, commercial companies, government agencies, not-for-profit organisations and marine research institutes.

Green Globes: The Green Building Initiative Green Globes is a web-based program for green building guidance and certification that includes an onsite assessment by a third party. Backed by excellent customer support, Green Globes offers a streamlined and affordable alternative to LEED as a way to advance the overall environmental performance and sustainability of commercial buildings. The program has modules supporting new construction - Green Globes for New Construction (NC), existing buildings – Green Globes for Continual Improvement of Existing Buildings (CIEB), and Healthcare buildings – Green Globes CIEB for Healthcare. It is suitable for a wide range of buildings from large and small offices, multi-family structures, hospitals, and institutional buildings such as courthouses, schools, and universities. The program includes: Environmental Assessment Areas

Piquillo Peppers Stuffed with Manchego Cheese « Karma-Free Cooking 11 Jul This is as simple as it sounds… This is inspired by the Made in Spain show from Chef José Andrés, where in one episode was celebrating the cuisine and ingredients of Navarra; and Navarra is where Pamplona is located. This tapa is made originally by chef Andrés with Roncal cheese. Unfortunately I was not able to locate Roncal without animal rennet. So my variation on it uses Manchego cheese, not as traditional to the region, but delicious nonetheless.
