    Meet Angus, he studies Agribusiness and Wildlife Science (dual program)

    Hi I’m Angus and I study Agribusiness and Wildlife Science at the University of Queensland. I wasn’t too sure about which program I wanted to choose, on my QTAC I chose courses like marine biology, ecology, business and science dules, but ended up choosing agribusiness and wildlife science because it was the most hands-on, it seemed more practical and one I’d enjoy the most. I chose to study a dual degree because essentially I get two degrees in the space of four years when one degree is three years and it really broadens my career options. Believe it or not I actually struggled a little bit with biology in high…

Well, there — are now a handful of universities (that teach classes about weed). “Oak-sterdam” — is the first all-inclusive Cannabis college in America. After prop 64 has passed — what is… the legal landscape in California? It’s — not an accredited university. But for fifteen hundred and ninety five dollars —…

    Climate change explained: do green policies harm developing economies? | FT

    Thank you. Are green energy policies jeopardising the economies of developing countries? This is a hot potato. The answer at the moment is very clearly no, because developing countries in truth have implemented almost no green energy policies, partly because, at least until the Paris accord, they didn’t really have any obligations to do so. It was deliberately structured up to then as a system in which the developed countries had obligations – not that they did much – and the developing countries didn’t. Up until now, a lot of developing countries have been saying that it’s all very well for the developed countries to essentially say we need to…

    Investors’ growing appetite for alternative proteins | Rethink Sustainability

    Global investors are showing greater interest in alternative proteins, as the climate impact of agriculture and food production comes under the spotlight. The world’s food system, including agriculture and land use, accounted for 25 to 30 per cent of emissions from 2007 to 2016. Demand for food protein is also being driven by population growth. By 2050 the world’s population is expected to be close to 10 billion. Alternative protein comes from a variety of sources including plant protein, cultured meat and insects. Start-ups are also turning to high-tech fermentation to transform micro-organisms into proteins. But despite its potential, alternative proteins are by no means a sure-fire investment success. Beyond…

    Can Big Tech Curb A Housing Crisis It Helped Cause?

    In San Francisco, the number of people living in their cars or on the streets increased by 17 percent over the last two years. Officials say the lack of affordable housing is the main factor. People who are leaving California, it’s because they can’t afford it anymore. Affordable housing has become a crisis on the West Coast, due in large part to the expansion of the tech industry. The people that are thriving in Silicon Valley are working in tech fields or fields that are supporting tech. Recently, these major tech companies have pledged money, like Google’s $1 billion investment into the Bay Area, and support, like Amazon’s construction of…

    How Germany’s Universal Health-Care System Works

    Seventy percent of Americans say the U.S. health-care system is in a state of crisis or that it has major problems. That’s why we’re hearing a lot about Medicare for all, including some plans going as far as banning private health insurance companies altogether. On page eight of the bill, it says that we will no longer have private insurance as we know it. And that means that one hundred and forty nine million Americans will no longer be able to have their current insurance. That’s in four years. I don’t think that’s a bold idea. I think it’s a bad idea. Problem. Senator Sanders, with that damn bill that…
