Authorities in Mexico are investigating the mysterious disappearance of a well-known conservationist in the state of Michoacan, as some human rights activists suggest his disappearance could be linked to illegal logging in the area. Homero Gomez Gonzalez, one of Mexico’s foremost experts on monarch butterflies who has spent years protecting the insects that migrate to the area each winter from Canada and the U.S., was last seen on Jan. 13 while attending a meeting in a nearby town. An official with the Human Rights State Commission of Michoacan told Reuters the organization has asked the attorney general’s office to look into whether Gomez Gonzalez’s disappearance is related to his conservation work, as he has been vocal in the past about t.

Memphis Meats, which grows meat from animal cells, just got a huge endorsement from some big-named backers. That will take it one step closer to selling its product, but it's still a long way off from hitting store shelves. The five-year-old startup said Wednesday it raised another $161 million in a new round of financing. The latest round of fundraising is led by SoftBank Group, Norwest and Temasek. It also includes flashy investors like Bill Gates and Richard Branson, as well as meat companies Tyson (TSN) and Cargill. That brings the company's total funding above $180 million...

Salena Zito Troy Carter, 49, says that, other than voting, he’d never been involved in politics. That changed late last year, when he heard that a county board of supervisors in Virginia voted to become a gun sanctuary. On Monday he was one of an estimated 22,000 people who gathered peacefully at the Capitol Square in Richmond, Va., to support gun rights. Many of those attending were visibly armed. Ninety-one of Virginia’s 96 counties have passed sanctuary measures to resist proposed state gun regulations. Last year Democrats took control of both chambers of Virginia’s General Assembly for the first time in nearly three decades. They, along with Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, have stood firm on their campaign pledges to enact stricter gun c.

The death toll from a new global virus threat rose to at least 17 on Wednesday as experts from around the world gathered in Switzerland to determine how to best manage the outbreak. The World Health Organization's emergency committee, meeting in Geneva, will recommend whether or not the outbreak constitutes a public health emergency of international concern – a PHEIC. The panel has backed similar declarations made for outbreaks of SARS, MERS, Ebola, Zika and swine flu. The WHO director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has the final say on declaring a PHEIC. If he does, he would then issue recommendations to countries to combat the new virus, although WHO has no enforcement power...

Environmental concerns have crept up philanthropist's agendas as they realise the urgency of climate change, . The environment and conservation are a top focus of time-limited philanthropic institutions, a report from Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisers shows. Time-limited, or spend-down organisations, aim to complete their philanthropic projects within a specific time-frame and they have grown rapidly: Nearly half of all organisations established since 2010 are time-limited and most of them want to spend their entire budget within 20 years. This contrasts with previous philanthropists that have traditionally built long lasting foundations focusing on issues like education, health or the arts. However, the status quo has slowly been changing

A new caravan formed in Honduras with about 2,500 migrants traveling toward the U.S.- Mexico border. Saturday the Mexican National Guard stepped up and honored the “safe third country” agreement. The migrants were denied entry into Mexico at the Guatemala-Mexico border. Last November the Trump administration entered into a series of regional agreements with countries including Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The goal is to reduce the burden of Central American migrant caravans arriving at the U.S. border. Migrants are being returned to Guatemala, sent back to their home country, or allowed to enter the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and wait in Mexico. In this case, Mexico stopped the caravan at a point of entry as they crossed a br.

Concerns around the environmental impact of modern farming are causing us to reassess our relationship with food. But are claims that will replace agriculture in the coming decades realistic? British journalist and environmental activist. George Monbiot. made a stir last week with the release of his documentary. Apocalypse Cow,. in which he claim. s. that. a technology called. “precision fermentation” could make traditional farming obsolete in just a few decades. In. an. he contends that we will be able to produce the vast majority of our nutrients through industrial-scale brewing of single-celled organisms specially designed to produce particular compounds. This idea of lab-grown food is certainly in the ascendancy at the minute. Concerns about the

The Houston Astros took four years to mutate from baseball’s worst team to its best. But even at their lowest point, as they stumbled to a franchise-record 111 losses in 2013, they constantly emphasized their brand of ambition. Everywhere they went that season, the Astros took an upright, game show-style spinning wheel for their clubhouse. Words like “leadership,” “trust” and “desire” filled the slots. So did an image of the World Series trophy. It was a gimmick to encourage the players: Keep pushing the wheel in hopes of a breakthrough. The club soared to the pinnacle of the sport, propelled by an unapologetic desire to change the game, and . But on Monday, a scathing report by Major League Baseball , trashing their reputation, ousting the.

Forty miles of dirt road. by Julie Carter. Across the cattle guard somewhere, a long way from the pavement, is a cowboy's bride marveling over her practical Christmas gifts and dreading the next oncoming storm because the water pipes are still frozen from the last one. Ranch wives have different phobias than their city counterparts. No need for the common city phobias such as "claustro: and "agora."

Many others are able to better document Terry’s biography than I can; but that said, he has been a great friend, colleague and guide for the forty-three years we have worked together. I first met Terry in 1977, shortly after I came off the northern Nevada range as a working cowboy/ranch manager, still carrying the impression that there weren’t any actual people in the world.

Rolling Rocks. Work-Life Balance. Lessons at Hand. By Stephen L. Wilmeth. From out of nowhere, it appeared. Seemingly, the world around us is obsessed with this issue of work-life balance. If nothing else, a review of American holidays is an indicator of the importance of leisure time and or congressional largesse in the designation of yet another paid day of vacation for the honored class. How else can it be explained? Implicit in government is the sanctity of time off and lots of it. Corporate America has long used the carrot of benefits as inducement of employment, too. It has become an indicator of the American psyche but hidden in the woodwork has been a silent consensus it is overplayed and destructive. Reality arrives and reminds the sma.

When beef gets short, a lot of cowboys are forced to do without. The cook must come up with meatless meals. The following recipes are from the Cowboy Vegetarian Cookbook. TENNIS SHOE TONGUE: Select an old one. The price is better and it may have picked up some natural flavor depending on where it has been worn. Boiling is suggested but it may also be fried to a crisp and served on a bed of marinated sweat shirt. Garnish with pickled shoe string. SEED CORN CAP PIZZA: Carefully clean with a fish scaling knife. Remove all metal buttons, rivets and any plastic tabs. Flatten the cap by soaking in linseed oil then placing it underneath a door mat that gets heavy use. Once pliable cover it with lots of cheese and ketchup. Dry kibbles or dust motes.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Greenlash has begun. All along the urban/rural interface the peasants are revolting. Those who used to cuss the farmer now flock to farmer’s markets. They cursed cows until the cow pastures were filled with grapes sucking up all the water, so now they want the cows back. They hated fossil fuels, so they bought into the hybrid and electric car craze only to discover that the electricity that powered their car came from coal, natural gas or oil. They wanted all the dams torn down until they realized they were what lit their homes and powered their Prius. Those who destroyed the ranching, mining, fishing and timber industries now bemoan the shortage of affordable housing and the dearth of gold and silver that make the.
