America’s recent drought history, animated

America’s recent drought history, animated | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

"California's drought just hit a new milestone: As of this week, 32.98 percent of the state is experiencing "exceptional" drought, making it the worst drought in the 14 years that the Department of Agriculture's Drought Monitor has tracked data."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 23, 2014 9:23 AM

The recent drought in California has only deepened and this Washington Post article shows an animated map that highlights the temporal and spatial patterns in the drought data (hint--it's not pretty).  In a related note, May 2014 was the hottest May in recorded history.     


Questions to Consider: What are some reasons (both from human and physical geography) for this severe drought? What can be done in the short-term to lessen the problem? What can be done to make California’s water situation better for the next 50 years?

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt?

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt? | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

As the climate shifts, rivers will both flood and dry up more often, according to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Shortages are especially likely in parts of the world already strapped for water, so political scientists expect feuds will become even more intense. To track disputes worldwide, researchers at Oregon State University spent a decade building a comprehensive database of international exchanges—-both conflicts and alliances—over shared water resources. They found that countries often begin disputes belligerently but ultimately reach peaceful agreements. Says Aaron Wolf, the geographer who leads the project, “For me the really interesting part is how even Arabs and Israelis, Indians and Pakistanis, are able to resolve their differences and find a solution.”

40 maps that explain food in America

40 maps that explain food in America | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

"The future of the nations will depend on the manner of how they feed themselves, wrote the French epicurean Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1826. Almost 200 years later, how nations feed themselves has gotten a lot more complicated. That’s particularly true in the US, where food insecurity coexists with an obesity crisis, where fast food is everywhere and farmer’s markets are spreading, where foodies have never had more power and McDonald’s has never had more locations, and where the possibility of a barbecue-based civil war is always near. So here are 40 maps, charts, and graphs that show where our food comes from and how we eat it, with some drinking thrown in for good measure."

WOW!  Talk about contrast and compare.  So now is contrast, compare and ... uh? ... conquer??  From farming and enjoying the harvest - which could be interpreted as healthy eating back in the day - TO sugary sweet soda pops and fatty burgers - which some might be calling junk food, convenience food, fast food, comfort food you don't have to cook yourself, the cause of obesity, a politician's guide to a potential source of additional revenue from taxes, etc.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, November 22, 2014 2:16 PM

With more people than ever living in cities and less people than ever working on farms, the future of our food is in question. The riskiness, labor, low gain,  and negative stereotypes of farmers combined with the fear of food conglomerates has led to a depletion of smaller scale farmers. Brain drain in rural farming areas is depleting the number of younger people willing to work in agriculture. With most of our food production being controlled and overseen by large corporations, people are now questioning the quality of our foods. Recently, the local food movement is educating people on the importance of food produced with integrity and supporting  local businesses.

Hunting Deer | The Ways | The Anishinaabe Way #OjibweTreaties #Ojibwe #IdleNoMore

Hunting Deer | The Ways | The Anishinaabe Way #OjibweTreaties #Ojibwe #IdleNoMore | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

In Hunting Deer

Greg “Biskakone” Johnson is a member of the Lynx Clan and an enrolled member of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. His home on the Lac du Flambeau reservation established by the Treaty of 1854 is also known as Waaswaaganing, “the place of the torch.” 

 

Greg lives his life according to the four seasons, as did his ancestors.  He harvests deer, fish, maple sugar, berries, wild rice, and wild plants.  He enjoys trapping and snaring as well as hunting with a gun. Greg is passionate about keeping the traditional ways alive, and he takes every opportunity to teach these ways to others. Whether he is taking a group of students spearing for the first time or showing community members how to make buckskin moccasins, he shares his knowledge in the hope of keeping a vibrant traditional way of life relevant today.  Greg’s favorite students are his two children, Wasanodae and Koen. Greg taught his daughter how to skin a deer when she was four and his son to make moccasins at age five. Together, the kids tracked their first deer before they turned six.

 

Greg follows traditional practices when hunting and uses nearly all parts of the deer for food, clothing, and tools.  Providing deer meat to elders in and for ceremonies is a priority for Greg.  He is often called upon to provide the deer meat or wild rice for community feasts and funerals. Despite their legal standing, hunting rights of tribal members are constantly under scrutiny. Greg feels it is his duty to use his treaty rights so no one can argue that the rights aren’t necessary or relevant today.

 

These rights originated during the treaty era, when a burgeoning population of Americans moving west set their sites on the vast resources of Ojibwe (Chippewa) territory. The Ojibwe ceded millions of acres of land in exchange for cash, goods, and services. But the inherent right to survive via hunting, fishing and gathering on those ceded territories was retained by the tribe in the treaties of 1836 and 1842, commonly known as the “Pine” and “Mineral” treaties respectively.  

In 1848, Wisconsin became a state, and the Ojibwe found themselves subject to a number of state and federal policies. Most notable were state policies that limited their right to hunt, fish and gather. Conservation laws enacted in Wisconsin failed to recognize the treaties and the reserved resource rights of the Ojibwe. When they exercised these rights by hunting or fishing in the ceded territories, Ojibwe people were subject to search, seizure, jail, and fines imposed by the state.

A lawsuit was filed in 1974 requesting that the State of Wisconsin cease enforcing state laws against tribal members who were exercising legal treaty rights, and the Ojibwe eventually regained these rights in 1991. As off-reservation harvests began, a controversial period in Wisconsin history also started. Protesters attempted to intimidate Ojibwe people and stop them from hunting or fishing in the ceded lands. It took the rulings of a federal judge to make exercising their treaty rights safer for Ojibwe people.

Today deer hunting season in the ceded territory lasts for four months and is regulated by the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC). When Greg hunts on the Lac du Flambeau reservation, hunting is regulated by the tribe. The reservation hunt is modeled after the old way of hunting. Traditionally, the first sign of fireflies is when the Lac du Flambeau people began their hunt for deer. It ends when the weather gets very cold.

 

In addition to constantly striving to live a traditional life, Greg works with students at the local public school teaching Waaswaaganing culture and language. His life goal is to preserve and enhance Ojibwe culture to ensure that it is enjoyed for generations to come.

A guy is teaching traditions to people about hunting animals. For example, he is teaching kids how to make moccasin boots and showing them to follow traditions and harvest animals correctly. He taught his son to make moccasins at age 5.He taught his daughter to skin a deer at age 4.They tracked a deer by age six. He likes to teach people the traditions of hunting an animal. He thinks that tradition is important so he wants to teach it.

Top 10 Best Camping Gadgets

Camping has reinvented itself and has become more appealing to even the most glamorous, high-class population. A trend is getting popularity across theglobe known as glamping or glamorous camping. Described as a really distinct experience with an odd mix of wild and refined, roughing it and taking it easy, glamping is sure to give a whole new meaning to setting up for camp. Inspired by wealthy concert goers and glamorous safaris, the days of rough tent camping are in the past. Who says camping can't be five-star? High-end, designer camping gear has hit the stores and luxury camping resorts are opening their doors in the most gorgeous places all around the world. Glamorous camping is all about comfort and luxury. Eco-consciousness is fashionable and going green is a strong theme at a lot of glamping resorts. Activities are part of the package at a lot of resorts. Horse-back riding, kayaking, fishing, private boats, swimming, safari, hiking, river rafting, wild-life enjoying. Glamping allows you to experience the fun of outdoor living without the niggles and problems that come with a full tent thing happening. Those rumbling clouds and torrential downpours usually spell trouble for the tent camper but glampers can take such appalling weather conditions in their stride. This is why Yurts have become so popular with the glamping fraternity. When the heavens open and the lightening flashes, a Yurt is the place to be.
