new approach predicts threats to rainforests

With rain forests at risk the world over, a new collaboration is equipping conservationists with the tools to predict and plan for future forest loss.A new study by scientists from the Universities of Oxford, Montana and the US Forest Service highlights novel approaches to tackling deforestation. The team focused their research on Borneo, an island that has lost a staggering 30 percent of its forest since the 1970s and is among the most biodiverse and threatened on the planet.
The loss of Bornean forests threatens species such as the orangutan, Sumatran rhino, and the Sunda clouded leopard; as well as emitting significant amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.Although focussed on Borneo, the study findings, published in Landscape Ecology, will be useful to all forest conservation

democrats demand the fcc tackle cybersecurity

Pai and Republican commissioner Michael O'Rielly have repeatedly asserted that cybersecurity is not the FCC's problem. Considering cybersecurity is a relatively new field for regulation, there are no rules mandating the FCC address flaws in the country's communications systems. So, Pai has said the FCC simply won't do anything.Wyden and Lieu argue this line of thinking is misguided."The continued existence of these vulnerabilities -- and the industry's lax approach to cybersecurity -- does not just impact the liberty of Americans, it also poses a serious threat to our national and economic security," the letter reads. "As such, the FCC must take swift action to address fundamental security threats to our mobile phones, which are no less dangerous than those cybersecurity threats that recei

As we deal with the physical side of wars and violence across the world, we must not forget the physiological burden which can follow weeks, months and even years after.As with all health conditions, the best approach is to prevent the problem before it gets too severe and becomes a crisis
