California deer population declines as habitat disappears

California deer population declines as habitat disappears | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it
An estimated 445,000 deer live in California, or about equal to the city of Sacramento's human population. Which sounds like a lot, until you realize the deer are spread over the entire state: 99 million acres.

 

The decline has been almost too small to see on an annual basis. But since 1990, California has lost nearly half its deer population, according to the state Department of Fish and Game.

Where Have All the Farms Gone? - Pew Environment Group

Where Have All the Farms Gone? - Pew Environment Group | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it

During the past 50 years, animal agriculture has gone through a seismic shift in the United States.  Family farms and red barns have been replaced by industrialized facilities controlled by large corporations that rely on concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). In this system, cavernous warehouses crowded with thousands—even tens of thousands—of animals form the equivalent of an agricultural assembly line.

"Amid all the discussion about the future of healthcare there’s a side discussion.... Healthcare is one thing; health is another. Talking about health means addressing the way we live, work, consume – forming a discussion around prevention rather than treatment."

The new and interesting thing about this is that they've come up with a video intervention. The rewiring of the brain through positive reframing is a long-practiced part of cognitive behavioral therapy, of course--and there is a large body of research in this area. For some other practical tips on rewiring the brain to avoid depression, a Google Scholar search on building resilience will turn up lots of great studies in this same vein. And some articles like this one: http://www.vision.org/visionmedia/depression-trauma-resilience/5816.aspx
