War Veteran Triumphs Over Trauma, Thanks To Tale From Grandma

War Veteran Triumphs Over Trauma, Thanks To Tale From Grandma | Teen Interest | Scoop.it

"A war veteran triumphed over trauma, and all thanks to a tale his grandmother told him as a child.

 

Mike McMichael of Durham, NC was at the point of suicide, when a story he’d heard as a child came ringing through his memories and kept him from tumbling over the point of no return."

How the Blue Whale can teach us about fans, filters and biomimicry

How the Blue Whale can teach us about fans, filters and biomimicry | Teen Interest | Scoop.it

"Whales are some of the most extreme creatures on Earth  The 115 foot, 150 foot ton Blue Whale, for instance, is the largest animal that ever lived. These magnificent creatures are social mammals, descended from an ancient land dweller that also gave rise to the hippopotamus family. Like hippos and humans, they are warm-blooded and air-breathing, and stay with their young, nursing them for an extended period of time. And like us, they maintain complex social networks. As you might imagine, the whale faces some special challenges doing all this in the ocean. As usual, where challenge is extreme, the solutions are efficient. So how can the Blue Whale inspire us today?

UGANDA: Ten African Countries wants private sector led fish industry

UGANDA: Ten African Countries wants private sector led fish industry | Teen Interest | Scoop.it

Uganda and ten other African countries have started drafting a comprehensive policy that seeks to promote aquaculture, with the private sector as the major player.

The fisheries officials and government representatives from the Eastern Africa region meeting in Kampala on Tuesday said their governments have realised that the private sector can play a big role in boosting the contribution of the fishing industry to national income.

The officials met at Hotel Africana in Kampala to evaluate the contribution of the Africa Caribbean Pacific (ACP) phase II fish programme in strengthening fisheries management in their countries. The programme that winds up in November is funded by the European commission (EC).

The acting head of the fisheries sector for Uganda, Lovelock Wadanya, said the European Commission funded process of developing a regional policy framework for aquaculture was in advanced stages.

“The comprehensive policy framework will promote aquaculture as a business and encourage the private sector to take the lead,” he added.

Wadanya said Uganda wants to use the framework to encourage large scale fish farming by identifying potential private sector players, assist them to access credit or enter into partnership with them to develop the fishing industry which is one of the largest foreign exchange earners for the country.

“We want a policy to promote value addition of our fish. Our lakes are open, we can give someone part of the lake to carry out cage farming,” he added.

Wadanya explained that such a policy was urgently needed because fish stocks are rebounding. Uganda’s fish stocks increased to about 200,000 metric tonnes in 2012 from 160,000 in 2006.

He was optimistic that the measures the Government is taking, such as issuing vessel number plates to license fishermen and the proposed introduction of fishing holidays on lakes, will go a long way in addressing illegal fishing.

“We are going to reduce the number of vessels on the lakes and criminalise many activities on our lakes now that the Government has provided funds to enable us effectively enforce the law,” he added.

The ACP programme regional manager from Eastern Africa, Koane Mindjimba, said the EC was satisfied because most of the activities that focused on strengthening management of the fisheries resources have been implemented as the programme comes to a close.

He said the 30m Euro project was implemented under the improved fisheries policies, legislation and management plans at regional and national level.

It strengthened monitoring, control and surveillance capabilities, enhanced national and regional research strategies, improved business support and private sector investment.

It also increased knowledge sharing on management and trade components.

Apple iPhone 5s camera leaps two years ahead of entire camera industry – all cameras, not just smartphone cameras

Apple iPhone 5s camera leaps two years ahead of entire camera industry – all cameras, not just smartphone cameras | Teen Interest | Scoop.it

While the tech blogosphere commences the self flagellation over getting it wrong on the whole “Apple needs a cheap iPhone and that’s why it is going to release the iPhone 5c”. The real story, in my opinion, is the one worth a thousand words on each of those aforementioned tech blogs but not getting near that sort of coverage — the new camera in the iPhone 5S. The camera? Yes, the camera.

i feel that with the iPhones growing so rapidly, cameras will start to fade into the backround, because i have already noticed that people are taking their iPhones out to take pictures instead of their cameras. it is less effort, because its everything in one, whereas a camera, is only a camera.

For combat wounded veterans a trusting animal is perhaps the best friend.  Animals aren't judgemental...the love they give their owners is unconditional..just what a battle weary soldier needs.  Aloha, Russ.
