VIDEO: "The Story of Solutions" - Resolving the "Game of More"

-▶  TO CHANGE THE BROKEN SYSTEM, WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE GAME

 Published on Oct 1, 2013

Annie Leonard's back with another animated video, six years after the Story of Stuff came out, and after eight other short films. This time, she's talking about what we need to do to solve problems—and how we really need to reframe goals so we're looking at the whole system.

   The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal.
   In the current 'Game of More', we're told to cheer a growing economy -- more roads, more malls, more Stuff! -- even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting.
But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better -- better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn't that be what winning means? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpkRvc-sOKk

                                 Published on Jun 13, 2013

Are you familiar with the term 'corporate social responsibility'? This concept relates to how growth can be achieved in a responsible way by people, businesses and governments.
     Corporate social responsibility (CSR) takes into account increased populations and scarce resources to ensure that global development is sustainable. Three central pillars of economic progress, social justice and environmental protection now form the basis of how businesses interact and support communities...http://www.alstom.com/Sustainability/animated-series-on-csr/

                RUTHLESS CAMPAIGNS OF WORLD DOMINATION

                      Rolling Stone, Matt Tabbi, February 12, 2014

             How Financial Deregulation Is Destroying The World

Banks are no longer just financing heavy industry. They are actually buying it up and inventing bigger, bolder and scarier scams than ever.

Today, banks like Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs own oil tankers, run airports and control huge quantities of coal, natural gas, heating oil, electric power and precious metals. They likewise can now be found exerting direct control over the supply of a whole galaxy of raw materials crucial to world industry and to society in general, including everything from food products to metals like zinc, copper, tin, nickel and, most infamously thanks to a recent high-profile scandal, aluminum. And they're doing it not just here but abroad as well: In Denmark, thousands took to the streets in protest in recent weeks, vampire-squid banners in hand, when news came out that Goldman Sachs was about to buy a 19 percent stake in Dong Energy, a national electric provider. The furor inspired mass resignations of ministers from the government's ruling coalition, as the Danish public wondered how an American investment bank could possibly hold so much influence over the state energy grid.

                                              Wall Street's War

   But banks aren't just buying stuff, they're buying whole industrial processes. They're buying oil that's still in the ground, the tankers that move it across the sea, the refineries that turn it into fuel, and the pipelines that bring it to your home. Then, just for kicks, they're also betting on the timing and efficiency of these same industrial processes in the financial markets – buying and selling oil stocks on the stock exchange, oil futures on the futures market, swaps on the swaps market, etc.

    But those are purely financial schemes. In these new, even scarier kinds of manipulations, banks that own whole chains of physical business interests have been caught rigging prices in those industries.

▶  ECONOMIC GROWTH DOES "NOT AUTOMATICALLY" LEAD TO SOCIAL ADVANCEMENT  http://www.skollfoundation.org/economic-growth-does-not-automatically-lead-to-social-advancement-new-social-progress-index/

    The Social Progress Index, created by a team led by Professor Michael E. Porter of Harvard Business School, is designed as a complement to GDP and other economic indicators to provide a more holistic understanding of countries’ overall performance.

*     Professor Michael E. Porter said: “Until now, the assumption has been that there is a direct relationship between economic growth and wellbeing. However, the Social Progress Index finds that all economic growth is not equal. While higher GDP per capita is correlated with social progress, the connection is far from automatic. For similar levels of GDP, we find that some countries achieve much higher levels of social progress than others.”

*    Steve Almond, Global Chairman of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (Deloitte Global), said: “In order to achieve sustainable growth and strengthen society we need a better way to assess social progress.”

*     Michael Green, Executive Director of the Social Progress Imperative, said: “Economic growth does not automatically lead to social progress. The Social Progress Index shows that if we are to tackle problems such as poverty and inequality economic growth alone is not enough.”

*     Sally Osberg, President and CEO of the Skoll Foundation, said: “Making social progress a true imperative means putting the progress of humanity and our wellbeing on an equal footing with GDP.”

The cult of 'growth' has dictated policy for decades. But if well-being, not growth, is our goal, selling resources that bring long term wellbeing to communities for short term gain is a very bad deal. Hard as it may be for the West to understand, protecting the ecological resources of communities might be more important than GDP figures.

Repairing the broken relationships wrought by the combination of economic globalization and corporate giantism is essential. And not only for our economy, which she argues will become more resilient and more productive as it becomes more local (ie boasting shorter supply chains, greater local ownership, closer proximity to the environment, higher socially inclusivity and so forth).

PICKING UP THE CORPORATE TAB

The Guardian, March 17, 2014
▶ TOXIC TRAIL:  HOW A LANDMARK SUPERFUND CLEANUP PROGRAM LEAVES ITS OWN TOXIC LEGACY.

Below some of the world’s most expensive real estate, in the heart of Silicon Valley, pipes and pumps suck thousands of gallons of contaminated water every hour from vast underground toxic pools.

Giant industrial filters trap droplets of dangerous chemicals at the surface, all in the hope of making the water drinkable again and protecting the workers of tech giants such as Google and Symantec from toxic vapors. Often the original mess is almost untreatable. In Silicon Valley’s case, it would take 700 years of continuous treatment to make the groundwater drinkable. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2014/mar/-sp-toxic-waste-silicon-valley-trail

Women make up half the world's population, but don't nearly share half of the world's wealth, well-being and opportunity. Two-thirds of the world poor are women, disproportionally exposing women to precarious living conditions, disease and unmitigated natural disasters. The media, meanwhile, remains a male-dominated sector in much of the world, contributing to women's voices lacking a crucial amplifier to put their concerns on political agendas and unleash the development potential of their ingenuity. Rather than then stereotypical victims of local and global forces, women are also organizer, innovators, conservators and community builders. These are some of their stories.

Financializing Nature Could Bankrupt Us All. Old Economics or Sustaining Policy?

Financializing Nature Could Bankrupt Us All. Old Economics or Sustaining Policy? | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

August 30, 2013 Eco-Business

-▶ It is not easy to put a value on a forest, a clean river, or unpolluted air, but that is what a group of the world's biggest banks is attempting to do.

43 financial institutions have agreed that the way the present economic system uses and often destroys the environment without paying to do so is not sustainable.

The banks are also concerned that some companies are using up natural resources so fast, with no thought for their own future, let alone that of the planet, that they will collapse. They want a way of warning them and ultimately withdrawing their credit unless the companies mend their ways... http://www.eco-business.com/news/banks-put-price-earths-life-support/

So it’s a pretty massive coverage area for the settlement.

                     THE CORPORATE CONSUMPTION COMPLEX

                                New York Times, February 25, 2014
  -▶ RETHINKING OUR 'RIGHTS' TO DANGEROUS BEHAVIOURS. In the last few years, it’s become increasingly clear that food companies engineer hyperprocessed foods in ways precisely geared to most appeal to our tastes. This technologically advanced engineering is done, of course, with the goal of maximizing profits, regardless of the effects of the resulting foods on consumer health, natural resources, the environment or anything else.
   But the issues go way beyond food, as the City University of New York professor Nicholas Freudenberg discusses in his new book, “Lethal but Legal: Corporations, Consumption, and Protecting Public Health.” Freudenberg’s case is that the food industry is but one example of the threat to public health posed by what he calls “the corporate consumption complex,” an alliance of corporations, banks, marketers and others that essentially promote and benefit from unhealthy lifestyles. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/26/opinion/bittman-rethinking-our-rights-to-dangerous-behaviors.html?smid=fb-share&_r=0

▶ WALL STREET NOW LARGEST OWNER OF SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL HOMES You may not have heard of the Blackstone Group, but it’s the largest private equity firm in the world. And now it’s become the largest owner of single-family rental homes in the country. Over the last few years, Blackstone and other Wall Street firms have been quietly grabbing up huge swaths of the rental housing market, purchasing more than 200,000 cheap homes, hoping to turn a profit. At one auction in Atlanta, Blackstone swept up 1,400 houses in a single day.   

And as private equity firms gobble up huge swaths of the housing market, they are partnering with big banks to bundle the mortgages on these rental homes into a new financial product known as "rental-backed securities," reminiscent of the "mortgage-backed securities" that helped cause the last financial crisis. http://www.democracynow.org/2014/4/10/wall_streets_land_grab_firms_amass

A DREAM FORECLOSED:  WALL STREET FORECLOSURE BUYBACKS AT FIRESALE PRICES

As President Obama touts the "housing recovery," journalist Laura Gottesdiener examines the devastating legacy of the foreclosure crisis and how much of the so-called recovery is a result of large private equity firms buying up hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes. More than 10 million people across the country have been evicted from their homes in the last six years. Her new book, "A Dream Foreclosed: Black America and the Fight for a Place to Call Home," focuses on four families who have pushed back against foreclosures. "The banks exploited a larger historical trajectory of discrimination in lending and in housing that has existed since the beginning of this country. The banks intentionally went into communities that had been redlined, which meant that the Federal Housing Administration had made it a policy to not lend and not to guarantee any loans in minority neighborhoods all throughout most of the 20th century that didn’t supposedly end until well into the 1960s," Gottesdiener says. "And they exploited that historical reality and pushed the worst of the worst loans in these communities that everyone knew were unpayable debts — that Wall Street knew." ... http://www.democracynow.org/2013/8/6/a_dream_foreclosed_as_obama_touts

             "UNWASTED: THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS ON EARTH"

A close look at companies who are working on creating a less wasteful, more cost-effective and environmentally tenable society.

There is no waste in nature. When a tree falls it's only halfway through its life. When a bear or animal finishes eating food and processes it in its body that becomes fertilizer for future life in the forest flora.

So it's a beautiful thing the way nature has worked this all out. There is no waste in nature; the human animal is in fact the only animal on the planet to create waste that nature cannot process.

The reason you should care about this is because that's going to make a difference for the environment, for the economy, for your costs, for all the things you care about. In economics there's this term of "externalities" and there's a lot of cost out there that we collectively bear as a society, whether it's habitat destruction, whether it's cost that are directly being imposed on us the citizens who didn't ask for those costs to be put on us.  http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/unwasted-future-business-earth/

▶ MORE WITH LESS:  WHAT WOULD NATURE DO?

We are using resources faster than they replenish -- from fossil fuel reserves and groundwater to the thousands of plant and animal species now permanently lost from our planet.

   To support outer efforts towards sustainability we need to radically adjust our inner attitudes toward the material world. Relationships based on greed, over-identification with ownership, and the use of material goods to establish status and power over others, can be traded for new values and ways of living that empower a healthy and dignified relationship to all the earth's resources.

 April 5, 2013 - LIFEWISE

We all have our opinions, principles and philosophies about life and we must be very careful about infringing on those of others. Every person should be able to follow that inner voice without external influences constantly telling them they’re wrong. However there is one choice we could all make right now that would transform our world to benefit all living things and the Earth itself.

That is, choosing nature and each other above all else. So many of us have been deschooled on this concept that it may take decades for the scales to tip so that we all start respecting our world again.

By embracing Mother Nature, we adopt the foundation of all she has to offer. We understand that she is never mistaken and will always do the right thing for Earth’s inhabitants....if we care for Her as we expect Her to care for us http://southweb.org/lifewise/why-choosing-nature-will-only-advance-human-societies/

According to Žižek ecological apartheid will divide our urban society.

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:38 PM

It does not take a Ph.D for commonsense to tell us that without Nature We Do Not Exist.   If we were to foster, nurture and respect our natural world providing Her with Her needs, instead of focusing on ravishing Her for our wants, desires and profits - we would have a much more balanced world emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.   To the degree the natural world is out of balance and "sick" so are we.   To the degree we humans degrade and abuse Her, we degrade and abuse our own human race and all other species within the great web of life.

Let us return to simplicity of reconnecting to the source of our sustenance every moment of every day and let Nature teach us the path back to commonsense and sensibility

Dr Joelle Le Moal, an environmental health epidemiologist, said: "This constitutes a serious public health warning."

-▶ WHY SAVING THE PLANET IS NO LONGER THE WORK OF POLITICAL LEADERS: AN URGENT COLLABORATIVE TASK AHEAD

Why saving the planet is no longer the work of political leaders -

From states to citizens, everyone has a stake in overcoming the inertia that surrounds decisive action on sustainability...

With the collapse of intergovernmental and global processes, it is becoming increasingly apparent that we now must use new mechanisms that bring businesses and communities together. For these to succeed, we need new ways to define and measure our goals and achievements. Saving the planet is no longer the work of political leaders, but an opportunity for managers, CEOs, accountants and activists to devise collaborative solutions.... there must be measurable goals and a new mechanism for accountability.

No longer is conventional CSR reporting adequate to the task. New accounting methods, as Rio's Declaration on Natural Capital begins to define, must be put in place....

 Oakland Institute , February 18, 2014

▶ DOWN ON THE FARM: The first years of the twenty-first century will be remembered for a global land rush of nearly unprecedented scale. An estimated 500 million acres, an area eight times the size of Britain, was reported bought or leased across the developing world between 2000 and 2011, often at the expense of local food security and land rights. When the price of food spiked in 2008, pushing the number of hungry people in the world to over one billion, the interest of investors spiked as well, and within a year foreign land deals in the developing world rose by a staggering 200 percent. Today, enthusiasm for agriculture borders on speculative mania. Driven by everything from rising food prices to growing demand for biofuel, the financial sector is taking an interest in farmland as never before. As the Oakland Institute reported in 2012, a new generation of institutional investors—including hedge funds, private equity, pension funds, and university endowments—is eager to capitalize on global farmland as a new and highly desirable asset class... http://www.oaklandinstitute.org/down-on-the-farm

RENT IN A WARMING WORLD. Rent isn’t just the monthly check that tenants write to landlords. Economists use the term “rent seeking” to mean “using political and economic power to get a larger share of the national pie, rather than to grow the national pie,” in the words of Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, who maintains that such dysfunctional activity has metastasized in the United States alongside deepening inequality.
When rent inspires investment in useful things like housing, it’s productive. The economic pie grows, and the people who pay rent get something in return. When rent leads to investment in unproductive activities, like lobbying to capture wealth without creating it, it’s parasitic. Those who pay get nothing in return. Two other types of rent originate in nature rather than in human investment. Extractive rent and Protective Rent.... http://triplecrisis.com/rent-in-a-warming-world/

 Environmental Health News, February 12, 2014

  -▶ CORPORATIONS, INVESTORS GRABBING LAND AND WATER OVERSEAS. As a growing population stresses the world's food and water supplies, corporations and investors in wealthy countries are buying up foreign farmland and the freshwater perks that come with it. From Sudan to Indonesia, most of the land lies in poverty-stricken regions, so experts warn that this widespread purchasing could expand the gap between developed and developing countries. The “water grabbing” by corporations amounts to 454 billion cubic meters per year globally, according to a new study by environmental scientists. That’s about 5 percent of the water the world uses annually. For countries reliant on farming and already suffering from poverty, the potential impacts are huge, said Paolo D’Odorico, a University of Virginia professor. “In many of these countries, the sum of the water being grabbed would be enough to eliminate malnourishment,” he said. Some of the more active buyers in the United States, which leads the pack in number of deals, include multinational investors Nile Trading and Development, BHP Billiton, Unitech and media magnate Ted Turner, according to the researchers. Most purchasers are agricultural, biofuel and timber investors. http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2013/land-grabbing

At present, some 1.5 million hectares of land are primed for lease to foreign countries, and the Philippine government is set to open more agricultural lands to monopoly corporations of the United States, European Union, South Korea and Australia.
Lawmakers in the Philippines are pushing for amendments to the 1987 Constitution to allow 100 percent foreign ownership of land. This is reportedly a condition set on the Philippine government before being accepted to the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), a trade pact being organized by the US government.

I did not like what was posted.  Read this article and thank the millions of everyday gardeners who are addressing this land grab issue.  Without changes, industrialized agriculture will bring our earth to a crash.  Instead, more natural practices like permaculture and organic square food gardening can produce more food, revitalized the earth, and let nature start healing.  I have stated many times: do the 1% have another planet to go to?  This is everyone's home: Earth.  Let's start respecting it and taking on ethical stewardship of this globe.  As Harrison Ford stated: "We need the Earth, the Earth does not need us!  So, what are YOU going to do about it?

Layton Register's curator insight, March 18, 4:41 AM

The institution that would best exemplify corporate colonialism is Goldman Sachs. This became all too apparent in the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Goldman Sachs has its thumb on Washington, Wall Street, Main Street, America's heartland, America's forestland, the IMF, the World Bank, China, Russia, and the list goes on. The ruling elite answers to Goldman Sachs.

-▶  To build a successful economy of enough, we would first need to eliminate the "growth imperative"—...

.....The thinking is that if we could just get people to produce and consume more stuff, then we could also pay off the debt, create jobs, eradicate poverty, and maybe even have some money left over to clean up the environment.

It's tempting to believe this economic fairy tale.  But if growth is the cure to all of our ills, why are we in such a bind after sixty years of it?  Even though the U.S. economy has more than tripled in size since 1950, surveys indicate that people have not become any happier.  Inequality has risen sharply in recent years, and jobs are far from secure.  At the same time, increased economic activity has led to greater resource use, dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and declining biodiversity.  There is now strong evidence that economic growth has become uneconomic in the sense that it costs more than it's worth.

Maybe it's time to consider a new strategy—an economy of enough http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/02/25-1

Our politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country's wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress.
    Kate Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century's social and ecological challenges. She blogs on Doughnut Economics at http://www.kateraworth.com and tweets @KateRaworth

-▶  DO WE NEED RELENTLESS, ENDLESS ECONOMIC GROWTH?
Critics question desirability of relentless economic growth. Ecologists warn that economic growth is strangling the natural systems on which life depends, creating not just wealth, but filth on a planetary scale. Carbon pollution is changing the climate. Water shortages, deforestation, tens of millions of acres of land too polluted to plant, and other global environmental ills are increasingly viewed as strategic risks by governments and corporations around the world.
   "The physical pressure that human activities put on the environment can't possibly be sustained," said Stanford University ecologist Gretchen Daily, who is at the forefront of efforts across the world to incorporate "natural capital," the value of such things as water, topsoil and genetic diversity that nature provides, into economic decision-making. ... http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Critics-question-desirability-of-relentless-5114217.php

-▶ CIRCULAR ECONOMY IS A NEW WAY OF DOING BUSINESS

Look closely at the challenges facing our world and the circular economy makes business sense.

Companies are turning to a new model of sustainable business in an effort to reduce their dependence on finite resources...

The sense that our planet is running out of the minerals, metals and organic matter required to sustain its rising human population has helped to fashion a new concept for our times: the circular economy. At its core is the argument that the old, linear model of conducting business – extraction, consumption and waste – is past its sell-by date...http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/circular-economy-new-way-doing-business

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, September 28, 2013 1:26 PM

Zero Footprint requires a circular economy, where all outputs must be accounted for as inputs elsewhere in the economy, where the entire lifecycle of all products is factored in, where 100% of waste becomes raw resources, powered by 100% renewable energy.

 ▶  ECO-SPIRITUALITY: TOWARDS A VALUES-BASED ECONOMIC STRUCTURE

Corporate visions of sustainability focus on material prosperity – but leaders must respect the soul as well as the soil, writes Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee...

As our world stumbles to the brink of ecological collapse, the "tipping point" of irreversible climate change, sustainability has become a vital issue. But in order to consider the question of sustainability, it is important to begin with the question: who or what is being sustained?

Does sustainability refer to sustained economic growth, and an environment that is able to maintain the status quo with our energy-intensive, consumer driven needs? Or does sustainability refer to the whole ecosystem, an interconnected web of life with its vast and rich diversity of species? What is the relationship between sustainability and the economy?

AGRITOPIA: FARM-TO-TABLE TAKES ROOT. The neighborhood is called Agritopia, and it’s one of a growing number of so-called agrihoods, residential developments where a working farm is the central feature, in the same way that other communities may cluster around a golf course, pool or fitness center. The real estate bust in 2008 halted new construction, but with the recovery, developers are again breaking ground on farm-focused tracts. At least a dozen projects across the country are thriving, enlisting thousands of home buyers who crave access to open space, verdant fields and fresh food... http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/12/dining/farm-to-table-living-takes-root.html?_r=0

 ▶  TURNING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY INTO LOCAL CONNECTED COMMUNITIES.  "We no longer know where our food comes from when it ends up on our plate or where the waste goes when we finish a meal," observes Michelle Long, founder and chief executive of Balle .. Repairing the broken relationships wrought by the combination of economic globalization and corporate giantism is essential. And not only for our economy, which she argues will become more resilient and more productive as it becomes more local (ie boasting shorter supply chains, greater local ownership, closer proximity to the environment, higher socially inclusivity and so forth). But the more connected as individuals we are, she maintains, the happier and more fulfilled we'll be as human beings. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/global-economy-connected-communities-local

CHRIS MARTENSON: But if -- if the choice was, listen, we were going to print up $2.4 trillion, and we were either going give it to the banks or we were going to do something else with it, I think this would be something else.

We will muddle through, but one thing we're not going to muddle through with is an exponential economy that needs more, more, more all the time.

PAUL SOLMAN: Suppose you are wrong about the debt. What evidence would you then offer to suggest that we're not on the right track?

CHRIS MARTENSON: If I had to give just a one-word summary, it's unsustainable.

In my own life, I have cut my standard of living in half. I have doubled my quality of life. I'm not saying everybody should do that or I'm admirable because of it. But I have learned that we can do things far more he efficiently and effectively and have better outcomes. And why wouldn't we do that?

PAUL SOLMAN: In the end, Chris Martenson may be just another economic doomsayer with an enthusiastic online following.

But his popularity and his voicing of the disaffections of Americans right and left alike suggest he may instead be a wishful throwback to the American tradition of simple self-reliance in the face of an ever more complex, impersonal global economy, an economy that could turn out to be unsustainable.

 November 19, 2012 The Guardian, George Monbiot

- ▶  IF CHILDREN LOSE CONTACT WITH NATURE THEY WON'T FIGHT FOR IT.  With half of their time spent at screens, the next generation will be poorly equipped to defend the natural world from harm...

... While the surveys show that the great majority would like to see the living planet protected, few are prepared to take action. This, I think, reflects a second environmental crisis: the removal of children from the natural world. The young people we might have expected to lead the defence of nature have less and less to do with it... http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/nov/19/children-lose-contact-with-nature

Una excelente lista de referencia para aquellos que quieran estudiar la importancia de reconectarnos con la naturaleza #ecosentido

Christian Allié's curator insight, February 14, 3:25 AM

.........""""""""""""""............

 

[  .......  ]

 

....... 

And here we meet the other great loss. Most of those I know who fight for nature are people who spent their childhoods immersed in it.

 

Without a feel for the texture and function of the natural world, without an intensity of engagement almost impossible in the absence of early experience, people will not devote their lives to its protection. The fact that at least half the published articles on ash dieback have been illustrated with photos of beeches, sycamores or oaks seems to me to be highly suggestive.

 

Forest Schools, Outward Bound, Woodcraft Folk, the John Muir Award, the Campaign for Adventure, Natural Connections, family nature clubs and many others are trying to bring children and the natural world back together. But all of them are fighting forces which, if they cannot be turned, will strip the living planet of the wonder and delight, of the ecstasy – in the true sense of that word – that for millennia have drawn children into the wilds.
