    Mom is like a flower and dad is like a tree! [The Return of Superman/2020.01.05]

    When you think of me, how do you feel? When I’m with you, – it’s like flowers bloom from the ground. / – My gosh. Does it feel like flowers blooming? – Why is he so sweet? / – When you’re with me? – Is that how you feel? / – Yes. – When he’s with Mom… / – How do you feel – when you’re with me? / – When I’m with Dad, it feels cool. And it feels like I’m on a walk with you. – Goodness. / – It makes me think of a tree with really beautiful leaves. – Mom is a flower and Dad is…

    WPT University Place: The Ecological Garden

    – Welcome, everybody, again, to Garden Expo. I’m happy to see you all here. My name is Ben Futa. I’m the Director of the Allen Centennial Garden here at UW Madison, and for those of you who aren’t familiar with the garden, we’ll look at us a little bit later, but we’re two and 1/2 acres on the UW campus, and we’re open year-round with free admission, so get out and support your local public garden and come see us sometime. So today we’re here to talk about this concept of the ecological garden, and I will sort of preface all of this by saying this isn’t necessarily going to…

    Upgrade from the assembly line – the ecological procedure

    However, the machines can do much more. They have a high level of productivity and are yet to unlock their full performance potential. Our next feature also starts with a number: 40 percent. This is the extent to which the environmental impact of construction measures can be reduced if works are performed on-track in assembly-line method instead of off-track. A work site north-west of Hamburg shows this. Reduced level of noise, less nitrogen oxides, fine particles and greenhouse gas emissions – this work site was an ecological milestone. The extensive life cycle assessment shows that on-track renewal is up to 40 percent more ecological and, consequently, more sustainable than off-track…

    Painting a Magical Forest Backdrop | Dragon Secret Compartment Box Part 5

    this will be the backdrop for the dragon secret compartment box. I’m starting out by blocking in the lights and darks using an airbrush. the paint used here is thinned down acrylic paint. with the pressure lower and the airbrush much closer to the surface I’m adding in the tree trunks. an advantage of using an airbrush for this project is that the wood surface is fairly uneven and I’m able to get a smooth application of paint that looks like a misty forest without the addition of brushstrokes. I had a basic reference in mind for this but instead of sketching it I just loosely applied paint with the…

    Greetings from Ecology Committee of Rojava to the Social Summit for Climate (Madrid, 2019)

    My name is Berivan Amara I’m responsible for the management of ecology of the canton of Cizire. We’re very happy to be able to send some words to this ecology summit, where so many people are gathering, that so many people are interested in protecting the environment. We as well, in this system of the autonomous administration, a system where the people self-govern, we want to give great importance to the protection of the environment. In the past, no importance was given to this subject, or was not given with the philosophy that we wish to apply. In the last 4 or five years we have developed the work well,…

    Gopher Tortoise – Longleaf Pine’s Ecosystem Engineers | Environmental Education

    – Oh my gosh, look at this. This is a gopher tortoise, one of the coolest inhabitants of the longleaf pine ecosystem that there is. (groans) Dude, I’m laying in nettles. They inject like a poison that makes you…it’s okay. There’s nothing like ’em in the Southeast. They’re the only tortoise we have and you can see it’s got those club-like, elephant-like feet that it uses to dig out something that makes this animal even more important. That is its burrow. Gopher tortoises excavate a straight-down burrow that goes for about 30 feet. And it’s that burrow that makes them what’s called an ecosystem engineer, kinda like a beaver. These…

    Trump Shuts Down Government Website That Tracks Pollution

    Earlier this month, a website called Tox Map put out by the federal government using data compiled by multiple different uh, and departments in the federal government, but mostly from the EPA was shut down. December 16th. The Tox Map was totally shut down, retired as the administration called it. So this information is no longer available. Okay, so you’re probably asking you at this point, what kind of information was this? Why should I care about Tox Map? Well folks, Tox Map was a resource interactive. You could clip anywhere on this map of the United States, go to any city, any part anywhere and see the pollution. You…

    Canadian Energy Myth – Environment

    Here in Canada we put in measures to protect our environment for longevity for sustainability and for the use of this resource for future generations. I’m proud of the Canadian energy industry because of the environmental standards that we set for the industry and how we implement those standards and the success rate of our environmental best practice measures. Specifically in pipeline construction … or when I’m part of building a project through communities that are not mine, I treat them as my own and I think about “okay, this is a river that maybe some families swim in” or “some kids like to play in this field that we’re…

    Dinosaur Discoveries | Caitie’s Classroom | Museum Field Trip

    (lively guitar strumming) (lively music) – We are at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, Ontario and there’s so much to see here. But let’s go find the dinosaurs. Whoa. Look at all the dinosaurs. They’re so big. 85 million years ago, these giant dinosaurs were alive and walking all over the planet. And most of the bones that you see here are real dinosaur bones that have been found all over the Earth. I think that’s pretty amazing. Oh, triceratops. Wow. See his horns? It’s amazing just how big dinosaurs are. And look, a big tail. Wow. This is the head of Parasaurolophus. It might have blown air…
