Each time we travel extra miles in private cars, we emit more CO2, and we create more traffic related deaths and injuries (see data from the International Energy Agency and the World Health Organization). Each year 1.3 million die from traffic crashes on average; and the transport sector currently contributes approximately 13% of annual greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. The CO2 we emit with transport is a function of how much we travel –in kilometers, and of the emission rate of our vehicles -in grams per kilometer. Similarly, traffic crashes are also a function of the exposure -in kilometers driven, and of the level of traffic crashes death risk -fatalities per kilometer driven. While road infrastructure design, better vehicles and other risk reduction measures have proven effective in decreasing the traffic deaths risk, it is important not to overlook the potential for further safety improvements from reducing exposure. We need to reduce distance traveled in private cars, and as we do so, we will also reduce our carbon footprint. We are in a win-win situation when we reduce our travel: less fatal crashes and less CO2 emitted.
The grass is not that green for the New England cottontail rabbit anymore, as its habitat is disappearing — and if there is no intervention the Massachusetts famous rabbit could become extinct, experts warn.

On 3 April 2013, the New Zealand forestry industry newsletter WoodWeek wrote that in the first quarter of 2013 export prices and returns were strong and exported log volumes across the Pacific Rim continued to rise.
WoodWeek quoted data from the latest report by New Zealand-based log exporter TPT which showed that exported log volumes across the Pacific Rim surged in the first quarter of 2013. Australia and New Zealand’s softwood exports rose to 923,000 JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standard) cubic metres in the first quarter of 2013 from 788,000 JAS cubic metres in the same quarter of 2012.
The report indicated that New Zealand production was running at approximately 1.2-1.3 million cubic metres a month, assisted partly by a period of very dry weather in the country. WoodWeek reported that forest owners were continuing to post strong export returns on account of a combination of favourable bulk freight rates and log markets continuing to pay increased log prices.
The international outlook for New Zealand’s timber and forestry investment enterprises is positive, with lumber prices rising in the US as a result of sustained increase in housing starts. As WoodWeek reported, the market was reacting to demand changes in the US housing sector, with price trends feeding into the Chinese market.

"What if news organizations confronted the reality that nearly all media will be 'social media' a decade hence?
...What if journalists became like your doctor, dentist, or teacher — people who provide a valuable service to you, and whose name, voice, and personality are more intimate? The question then becomes how to create a social presentation layer that wraps around news — preserving the integrity of the product but updating its interface to fit with human behavior in the digital age....
