The company said its Sunrise Farms unit close to Harris, Iowa, in Osceola County has 3.8 million hens. (<a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-04-21/u-s-bird-flu-outbreak-hits-millions-of-egg-laying-hens-in-iowa">Bloomberg</a>)</blockquote>It is scary to contemplate that millions of live stocks can be wiped out by a single strain of virus. But this is a direct consequence of industrial farming. This type of industrialization is very profitable and can scale to meet demand of consumers however they are also very fragile.<br /><br />We need to introduce more resilience into our system and society. We are facing more and more of environmental consequences of our actions. <br /><br /><br /></div>The Dodenoreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8824384.post-82528753708257703852015-03-02T08:47:00.000+00:002015-03-02T08:47:31.710+00:00Cool cities in Europe to check out this summer<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://i.guim.co.uk/static/w-620/h--/q-95/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2015/2/27/1425055509982/a0e39e61-2b9a-4f6c-96a9-2158ee767509-620x372.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://i.guim.co.uk/static/w-620/h--/q-95/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2015/2/27/1425055509982/a0e39e61-2b9a-4f6c-96a9-2158ee767509-620x372.jpeg" height="384" width="640" /></a></div><br /></div><blockquote>Where else can you find a vegan kebab shop?

Six bombs exploded on main arteries of the Giza district in what appeared to have been a well-coordinated attack. The ability to carry out the attacks highlighted the growing threat posed by such previously unknown outfits cropping up in Cairo and around the Nile Valley. <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/27/world/middleeast/egypt-giza-bomb-explosions.html?hp&amp;action=click&amp;pgtype=Homepage&amp;module=first-column-region&amp;region=top-news&amp;WT.nav=top-news&amp;_r=0">NY Times</a></blockquote><br />For those of us who live in Cairo, the waves of small scale attacks against Egypt's security apparatus in the past 18 months have been sideshow. Life continued normally. We take comfort that the majority of the casualties belong to the state. We, the civilian, can live our life normally in most parts. You have to be so unlucky to be a victim of these attacks as civilians.<br /><br />Yesterdays' attack Cairo yesterday changed this equation. <br /><br />Four mobile phone shops were attacked almost at the same time in a business district of Cairo. They fortunately did not produce any death casualties although we don't really know about the extent of the victims' injuries.<br /><br />Another attack happened in a pizzeria in a working class enclave, which killed one worker of the place.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://s2.reutersmedia.net/resources/r/?m=02&amp;d=20150226&amp;t=2&amp;i=1028030097&amp;w=&amp;fh=&amp;fw=&amp;ll=700&amp;pl=378&amp;r=LYNXMPEB1P0KB" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://s2.reutersmedia.net/resources/r/?m=02&amp;d=20150226&amp;t=2&amp;i=1028030097&amp;w=&amp;fh=&amp;fw=&amp;ll=700&amp;pl=378&amp;r=LYNXMPEB1P0KB" /></a></div><br /><br />You can see the theme of the mobile phone shops attacks because they represent international brand (Vodafone (UK)/Etisalat (UAE)). However, a small pizzeria in a working class neighborhood really does not represent anything.<br /><br />The various militant groups have always tried to maintain some sort of 'good relation' with the local populace by targeting just the security apparatus. It does not seem that the populace is returning the favor.<br /><br />The massive support for Egyptian's Air Force retaliation over <a href="http://www.cbsnews.com/news/isis-beheadings-spark-christian-exodus-libya/">21 beheaded Egyptian Coptic Christians</a>&nbsp;also indicates that the majority of Egyptians are against the ideology that many of these militant groups subscribe to. The various militants group might have decided that their 'restraints' are not working and it is time to escalate.<br /><br />We are all waiting for the other shoe to drop, an attack to a supermarket chain or a local market, that produce large number of casualties.<br /><br />If this happens in the near future, then you can point back to yesterday's attack as a turning point.<br /><br /></div>The Dodenoreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8824384.post-42523910068247053632015-02-27T07:49:00.001+00:002015-02-27T07:49:09.362+00:00CITIZENFOUR, the Oscar winning documentary about Edward Snowden is available online for free<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">The movie is available online as public domain as unsealed record as part of a lawsuit.

In all of 2014, more than 170,000 people arrived from Libya and Turkey, the highest number ever recorded. Last weekend, as the embassy staff made their way to Italy on a mercantile ship, 2,164 migrants left the same Libyan shores en route to Sicily. The week before, more than 300 people were lost in the same seas as their rickety fishing boats capsized before rescuers could save them. <a href="http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/02/17/italy-fears-isis-invasion-from-libya.html">The Daily Beast</a></blockquote><br />Some security related news is simply fear mongering without any basis on realistic assessment of reality.

Here, using uranium-series dating of coralloid speleothems directly associated with 12 human hand stencils and two figurative animal depictions from seven cave sites in the <b>Maros karsts of Sulawesi, we show that rock art traditions on this Indonesian island are at least compatible in age with the oldest European</b> art11. The earliest dated image from Maros, with a minimum age of 39.9 kyr, is now the oldest known hand stencil in the world. In addition, a painting of a babirusa (‘pig-deer’) made at least 35.4 kyr ago is among the earliest dated figurative depictions worldwide, if not the earliest one. <b><i>Among the implications, it can now be demonstrated that humans were producing rock art by ~40 kyr ago at opposite ends of the Pleistocene Eurasian world.</i></b> <a href="http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v514/n7521/full/nature13422.html">Nature</a></blockquote><br />Usually they find representative arts from 35,000 years ago in Europe.
