Flamingo conservation program launched in Kenya














A flamingo conservation program was launched at Kenya's Lake Nakuru, a major habitat of flamingo, to develop strategies to address the declining flamingo populations and densities in the Rift Valley lakes in Kenya.

Flamingo is classified as "near threatened" in the 2006 World Conservation Union Red List of Threatened Species, indicating that it is considered likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future, according to a report compiled by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) researcher Anderson Koyo.

The report, released at a two-day workshop serving as an initial part of the program, said the flamingoes are regarded as flagship and indicator species for the lakes' ecosystem health and ecological integrity.

The status and trends of the flamingo populations and densities are a reflection of the hydrology and land use systems within the catchments, said the report.

It said "mitigating the challenges affecting the conservation of flamingoes would have added value effect on the conservation of all other species both within the lakes and the wider catchments."

About 70 participants from various countries, including researchers and officials of universities and conservation organizations and authorities, will brainstorm on subjects including the causes of flamingoes' death and the impact of pollution on the lakes.

In Kenya, the number of flamingoes counted in the lakes in the recent years is lower than what was counted in the 1960s at a maximum of 2 million compared with 3 million, according to the report.

In the African region as a whole, the number of the birds dropped from 5 million in 1974 to 4 million in 1994 and between 1. 5 and 2.5 million in 2006, it said.

Puppy Linux version 2.17


Another wonderful new Puppy! The 'standard' release is puppy-2.17-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso live-CD and is 82.6MB.



There is one thing that stands out from reading the release notes, and that is the major advances with hardware support -- which astounds even me, considering that version 2.16 was released barely 2 months ago. Yes, everything listed below is in that 82.6MB!

Release notes:
  • Enhanced dialup: Puppy now has enhanced support for those who have to access the Internet by dialup. Automatic detection and setup of serial and many soft-modems -- quite amazing if you happen to have a compatible soft-modem! Read more Read more
  • For dialup, there is a new GUI application called PupDial. PupDial is integrated with the new auto-detection to provide extremely simple Internet connection. Read more Read more
  • Enhanced printing: Finally, Puppy has CUPS! This includes the complete Gutenprint 5.0.0 package so Puppy supports over 500 printers out-of-the-box. Extra Hewlett Packard drivers are available as a PET package. Read more
  • Print-to-PDF: This is out-of-the-box setup for CUPS, with the 'CUPS-PDF printer' ready to go. Read more
  • MMC and SD cards: These are now fully automatically supported. You should not have to setup anything. Read more
  • Boot configuration: The BootManager was introduced in Puppy 2.16 to manage loading of SFS files (application combo-packs). My intention was that the BootManager would be a one-stop-shop for configuring all aspects of bootup, and I have now taken the next step and added management of modules. Read more
  • Mount image files: One-click mounting of .2fs (a file with ext2 f.s. inside), .3fs (ext3), .sfs (squashfs) and .iso (CD image) files. Read more
  • Hardware information: PupScan is my GUI application to view PCI and modules information. USB information is now added. Read more
  • Pmount is a drive mounter. It has been totally revamped for 2.17. As well as an improved display and bugfixes it is also now much faster. Underlying scripts test-eide, test-scsi, probepart and probedisk totally rewritten.
  • Boot from USB CD/DVD drive: the live-CD will now boot from this, as well as the usual internal CD/DVD drive.
  • Boot from floppy disk: Puppy has this for a long time, now WakePup2 (floppy image file) has been greatly enhanced. Read more
  • ePDFView PDF viewer. This is great, replaces Gsview. Read more
  • Notecase outliner. I am waxing poetic about this one. Version 0.5.8 has everything I dreamed of in a note-manager/outliner. Read more
  • Xfdiff, frontend for 'diff' and 'patch'. This is very nice, and replaces TkDiff. Read more
  • The default finance manager application is now Grisbi (v0.5.9). Read more
  • We have removed Dillo in favour of Gtkmoz for our internal HTML viewer. Read more Read more
  • The following packages have been upgraded: RutilT v0.15, Pfind v2.2 (more), Pbackup v2.4.4 (more, more), Geany 20070626 (now has FreeBasic highlighting) (more), WakePup2, ROX-Filer v2.6.1 (more), puppyserialdetect v1.1g (more), xkbconfigmanager v1.1 (Dougal), puppybasic v 2.5b (MU).
  • The Linux kernel has been upgraded to version 2.6.21.5. Read more
  • Lots of bugfixes (of course).
Note: Many people contributed to the above, and you will find names in the "Read more" links.

T'enviem el primer butlletí electrònic de Reagrupament.Cat. En aquest butlletí, de periodicitat mensual, com a mínim, hi trobaràs les últimes novetats sobre les nostres activitats. L'objectiu és mantenir-nos informats a tots de les notícies més rellevants i de les activitats en marxa.

L'any 2008 serà un any molt important: hi hauran eleccions internes a ERC i també les eleccions generals i cal començar la feina amb pas ferm i sense pausa.

En els propers mesos ens caldrà treballar fort. Primer de tot, cal consolidar RCat i fer arribar el nostre missatge a tots els militants d'ERC, i per això hem de decidir com organitzar-nos i fer-ho. I segon cal redactar la nostra ponència estratègica per a ser una força idependentista d'èxit i influir d'aquesta manera en el programa que ERC presenti a les eleccions generals.

Comptem amb el teu suport per a reeixir en aquests dos objectius.

No dubtis a enviar-nos els teus suggeriments, ni a reenviar aquest butlletí a aquelles persones a qui pensis que pugui interessar.

Endavant!

7,5 milions de targetes sanitàries








El Departament de Salut ha lliurat ja 7.445.000 targetes sanitàries, seguint el criteri que a Catalunya tothom té dret a rebre assistència sanitària pública.

Aquest increment produeix els problemes corresponents, la saturació de les consultes, el dèficit de recursos econòmics –caldria que el finançament per part de l’Estat es revisés periòdicament i per anticipat–, tant pel que fa al nombre d’usuaris com a l’increment cada vegada més elevat del cost de la despesa sanitària, també afecta el nombre de metges i infermeres –que avui són ja insuficients–, de manera notable en algunes especialitats, com pediatria i ginecologia.

La consellera, repassant la problemàtica existent, va assenyalar la possibilitat de beneficis fiscals per a les assegurances privades.

Russische Militärs sagen Krieg mit USA voraus


Es fallen Sprüche, die erschaudern lassen: Moskauer Militärexperten entwerfen ein Horrorszenario, wonach die Vereinigten Staaten mittelfristig Russland angreifen würden, unter anderem, um sich die Rohstoffe Sibiriens zu sichern. Das Kalkül der Kalten Krieger ist durchsichtig.












Einen "Krieg zwischen Russland und den USA schon in den kommenden 10, 15 Jahren" hält Generalmajor Alexander Wladimirow durchaus für möglich. Und den Grund dafür - "er ist schon heute offensichtlich" - liefert er gleich mit: "Die Beseitigung des mächtigsten geopolitischen Gegners vom Antlitz der Erde, der über die Möglichkeit verfügt, die USA innerhalb von 30 Minuten auszulöschen."

Zudem wollten die USA sich den Zugriff auf die Rohstoffressourcen Sibiriens und des Fernen Ostens sichern und den Rest der Welt mit ihren militärischen Fähigkeiten schrecken.

Nanotecnologies ....jugant amb foc

Carbon nanotubes are just one example of a whole range of new manufactured materials, collectively known as "nanomaterials", that are starting to be used in everyday products.


The US National Nanotechnology Initiative defines a nanomaterial as a substance that has at least one critical dimension less than 100 nanometres and possesses unique optical, magnetic or electrical properties.

Nanomaterials can have properties that are quite different from those of otherwise similar materials made up of larger particles. Silver nanoparticles, for example, react with hydrochloric acid, something that bulk silver doesn't do.


Nanomaterials are creating a boom industry, often touted as the "nanotech revolution". From carbon nanotubes used to make strong, light materials to silver nanoparticles that function as antibacterial coatings, and titanium oxide nanoparticles to make transparent UV-filtering sunscreens, you are likely to encounter nanomaterials sometime soon - if you haven't already.


There's a catch. If these particles escape into the environment, their very smallness means they could have as yet unknown and possibly damaging effects. You might inhale or swallow them, or they could collect on the skin. They could then be carried to major organs such as the heart, liver and even the brain.


The consequences of all this are still not clear, but following past health disasters caused by substances such as PCBs and asbestos, the prospect has stirred concern among governments and scientists alike.


So in recent years researchers have begun investigating the potential effects of nanomaterials. ..

President Kibaki urges Kenyans to embrace political tolerance
















President Mwai Kibaki commissions the construction work for the Kiambere Mwingi Phase II pipeline (Kyandoo - Kyuso - Tseikulu) water project in Mwingi. President Mwai Kibaki has urged Kenyans to embrace political tolerance and not to allow political rivalry to stifle development in the country. Addressing a mammoth public rally at Kyuso Secondary School grounds in the newly created Kyuso district, President Kibaki stated that he stood for true democracy and would never support politics of hatred. Noting that the country has achieved a lot in terms of development in the last four and a half years, President Kibaki urged wananchi to focus on development instead of destructive politics, which would only serve to undermine the Government's efforts to
