Google's Next Goal: To Stop Deforestation with Global Forest Watch

Google's Next Goal: To Stop Deforestation with Global Forest Watch | PTSD CAMPAIGN ON INDIEGOGO RAISE FUNDS FOR HOUSE OF HEALING | Scoop.it

Deforestation has long been cited as a problem, but a lack of accessible data meant that the general public had to take someone's word for the figures. As a result, its threat always seemed more abstract and nebulous than, say, climate change or rising sea levels.

 

Until now: Google has unveiled its Global Forest Watch, an online tool that monitors deforestation around the world in near-real time.

A great new tool to use when integrating tech into your classroom.  Want to understand global forest decline and contribute to the conversation...this might be the tool for yoU!

One role of media should be to act like those speed monitors we see that tell us how fast we are going. Hopefully a program like Google's Global Forest Watch can help us monitor deforestation in real time.

thinking peasant's insight:

I often thought and felt like a lab rat,lets try this pill or that one.If asked what it did to my brain they never were really sure.I think only someone having gone through PTSD and living with it,fully understands the helplessness and isolation we feel.I wish to provide a small group home where we can help each other,talk,cry or as i do at times barricade myself in my room during a bad nightmare,have someone there that knows you are experiencing a flashback.Is not angry but helps you till the crisis passes.

PTSD  does not go away at least not here,they had excellent results with mdma in trials in other country's but it is not licensed for use here.

We need a home and many more in years to come.Let us be the first one,please help another human soul.

Counselors are using meditation therapy to help our veterans overcome their PTSD.    Using meditation for PTSD helps allow soldiers to process their emotional experiences and it allows them to step out of the traumatic event and observe instead of re-enact.    For information on how to become a certified meditation instructor please Follow This Link.

Barbara Wood, Ph.D. www.alcoholismandthefamily.com / Author of Children of Alcoholism and Raising Healthy Children in an Alcoholic Home's insight:

 

 

This study, published in JAMA, indicated that women of normal weight who developed PTSD symptoms during the study period had a 36 percent increased risk for becoming overweight compared with women who experienced trauma but had no PTSD symptoms.

 

 

This first longitudinal study examining the relationship between PTSD and obesity showed that increased risk was present even when women had subthreshold sympoms of PTSD, and the risk remained even when results were adjusted for depression, another important risk factor for obesity. 

 

Researchers indicated that PTSD may lead to weight gain through 

unhealthy lifestyle behaviors as well as  dysregulated neuroendocrine function and  suggested that women with PTSD should be monitored or screened for "for poor cardiometabolic outcomes". They also suggested that  PTSD treatment should be broadened to include such measures as diet and exercise to help ease the risk for obesity.
