The RED Talk on The #Business and #Science of #Healthcare is now live! Still time to join us at ruralpolicy.group/red.
The next big issue facing NICE & #healthcare will be our relationship with the European Medicines Agency after Brexit; it will impact our #medicines research, trials. We could see a dramatic reduction in research, access to medicine and disrupt the supply of meds - @steve_mccabe
The British #taxpayer makes a phenomenal contribution to the development of new #drugs - but these can then be prohibitively priced. We need to improve access to new medicines and there is a question around cost, access and funding. @steve_mccabe

My piece in @MongabayIndia on relocation from #Wayanad #Wildlife Sanctuary based on my @MPhilCL @Cambridge_Uni research supervised by @EliaApos Ialso drew on my yrs of experience.Resettlement from #ProtectedAreas (PA) is contentious @csandbrook 1/22
bit.ly/3bjo3V7
& I discuss a largely ignored narrative:of people seeking support for relocation.Historically,resettlements have been poorly recorded; there have been evictions from PAs that have led to penury, isolation, further impoverishment, which I strongly condemn.There is NO room 2/22
for forced,induced,unjust resettlement. However,it is troubling that resettlement discourse has ignored the narrative of people voluntarily seeking to move out of PAs where they face immense hardship due to lack of access to education,healthcare, markets,roads,jobs,business

I'd rather stare at a tree than...(insert most other activities) Here's a #timelapse of this painting, the first layers are acrylic so the yellow wouldn't muddy the other colors. There was a masking disaster...how do people ensure a clean masking removal? #process
Materials: Paper Block B5 size, acrylic and gouache paint
Time: 5 hours
Feelings: Pleased that I was painting some trees (and making a gift for my sister)

"Kkondae Intern" sizin için ne tür bir işti?

[Makale] 2020 birçok nedenden dolayı unutulmaz bir yıl oldu. K-drama aktörleri ici çok hoş sürprizler oldu. Bu aktörler sektörde harika bir iş çıkardıklarını ve hatasız bir izlenim bırakmaya devam ettiklerini kanıtladılar. Bu aktörlerden biri Park Hae Jin. ++
Park Hae Jin, 2017'den bu yana hiçbir K-dramada yer almadı ancak kesinlikle 2020' de telafi ediyor. Şimdiye kadar iki K-dramada rol aldı: “Forest” ve “Kkondae Intern”. Bu yıl “Crime Puzzles” adlı başka bir K-dramada daha rol alacağıda doğrulandı. ++ ImageImage
Ayrıca bir ateş mareşali olarak gönüllülüğü için bir ödül aldığını da söylemeyi unutmayalım. Park Hae Jin' in her zaman çeşitli gönüllü işlere gönüllü olmaya ve katılmaya çalıştığı bir sır değil. Bu yıl daha ne yapabilir?!

#VenezuelaVictoriosa no objetivo de reabastecer o país que sofre com as sanções, que afetam toda a economia e população

#irantankers Image
O #Fortune foi o primeiro a chegar ao país, os outros serão: #Forest, #Petunia, #Faxon and #Clave

Irã e Venezuela aprofundam ainda mais os laços diplomáticos e econômicos entre os dois países, preparados a resistir a agressão dos EUA

Obituary of a #forest guard. She is Madhubala, from Jaldapara NP. She was born in 1930, served the Park for 50 years, patrolled over different beats, ranges & remote areas with frontline staff. She during its half century of service gave birth to 8 calves. No more today.
Elephants plat great role in rescue as well as protection duty. To reach places where there are no roads. Part of system from decades. For example this picture of KC Roy Choudhary (IFS 1940 batch) with a dept elephant & staff.
Even service book of elephants are maintained. For example service book of an elephant called as Jatraprasad. Entries are made about major life events also. From old records.

We highly recommend the latest episode of @MilanV's #GrandTamasha. In conversation with @jscaseddon, Milan discusses India’s #AirPollution crisis, urban biases in the problem, solutions from LA, Mexico and Europe and much more. (1/3) grand-tamasha.simplecast.com/episodes/jessi…
If you found that interesting, do read this blog (bit.ly/2W8JS3W) on the 40 year old convention on #AirPollution, that prevented 600,000 premature deaths p.a in Europe. Also this one (bit.ly/3cSbro1) on innovative solutions on air pollution. @WRIRossCities (2/3)
On the constructive efforts taken by the 15th #FinanceCommission: As Jessica mentioned, the 15th FC ⬆ the weightage given to #forest cover from 7.5% to 10% in determining the devolution of funds to states. Here are some snapshots from their report. (3/3) ImageImage

Hey #weather research scientists! We are looking for your expertise! Are you interested in wind/temp profile at night? Are you using or wishing to use doppler on wheel? We could have something to propose to you! #severeweather #aeroecology #DOW 1/n
I'm a research scientist in #forest #ecology at the @cflscf (@NRCan). With a high-expertise team, we are looking at the dispersal patterns of the most important pests in eastern North American conifer forests: the #sprucebudworm. 2/
@cflscf @NRCan #Sprucebudworm #outbreaks occur every ca 30-40 years and can last 5 to 15 years. The last major outbreak (1969-92) covered 55 M ha (yes MILLIONS !) and resulted in tremendous losses in the forest sector. (below: area defoliated in 1975). 3/

Today we spent a chilly day out in the uMkhomazi catchment in the south of Kwa-Zulu Natal with a group of stakeholders who are mutually concerned about water security in the catchment #Water #SharedBenefits #SharedRisks

On August 7, 2019, the @IPCC_CH published Climate Change and Land, a special report that addresses greenhouse #gas emissions and their link to #desertification, #land degradation and #food #security. Image
This report is the culmination of two years of work by 107 experts from 52 countries. The report is a key scientific input at the Conference of the Parties of the #UN Convention to Combat Desertification (COP14) in New Delhi this month. ruralindiaonline.org/library/resour…
About 1/4th of the Earth’s ice-free land area is subject to human-induced degradation that is an adverse land condition caused directly/indirectly by humans, leading to a long-term reduction in/ loss of,the land’s biological productivity,ecological integrity, or value to humans.

When #Adivasi #women fight to reclaim traditional #forest rights & #land, the state #violence is compounded with gendered violence. Image
This has been the case for Rajkumari & Sokalo of #Sonbhadra district, who've been fighting against the construction of adam on the Kanhar river, fearing #displacement & #pollution of their water source. ruralindiaonline.org/articles/i-kne… ImageImage
"After I joined the union (@aiufwp),I realised my rights,& now I am not afraid to ask for them,”says Sokalo. She is one of two #Adivasi women who will appear in the #SupremeCourt today, to take on the legal mantle of fighting the case against the @ForestRightsAct. @cjpindia ImageImage
