Press release: Bees’ needs: public urged to support pollinators

first_imgFive simple actions to help pollinators such as planting more bee-friendly flowers and cutting grass less often were promoted today to protect the vital contribution these insects make to our economy.The five actions form part of a call to action launched by Environment Minister Lord de Mauley today at a conference organised by Plantlife, the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and The Wildlife Trusts, to encourage people to do their bit to help insects such bees and butterflies.Pollinators provide variety in our diets and some crops, like raspberries, apples and pears, particularly need insect pollination to produce good yields of high quality fruit.Research has estimated the value of insect pollination to crops at around £400 million due to increases in yield and quality of seeds and fruit.Lord de Mauley said: Find out moreVisit the Bees’ Needs website for more information on the call to action. Pollinators such as bees are vital to the environment and the economy and I want to make sure that we do all we can to safeguard them. That’s why we are encouraging everyone to take a few simple actions and play their part in helping protect our bees and butterflies. We will be publishing a nationwide strategy for pollinators later this year to set out everything that we can do to help pollinators flourish. This is a great foundation for us all to start helping our bees through five practical actions which everyone can get behind. These actions, combined with government leadership, will be vital to get the right framework in place for bee health in the long term. The WI now look forward to seeing the publication of the National Pollinator Strategy in the Autumn with clear actions and targets for the future. The plight of our bees is high on people’s environmental concerns so it’s great to see government, businesses and communities launching this call to action to protect this iconic species. The good news is that everyone can be part of the generation that helps saves our bees, from creating a ‘Bee World’ wildflower patch in your local area to helping scientists monitor bee health by logging any bees you spot with the free Great British Bee Count app. We are pleased to support this call to action, which lists five things we can all do to benefit pollinators, including providing more of the food and habitat they need to thrive and taking care when using pesticides. Through the Campaign for the Farmed Environment, the NFU has already helped deliver pollinator events to over 800 farmers and growers across the country this year, giving them the information they need to support this call to action on their own farms. National Farmers’ Union Vice President Guy Smith said: Grow more nectar- and pollen-rich flowers, shrubs and trees Leave patches of land to grow wild Cut grass less often Avoid disturbing or destroying nesting or hibernating insects Think carefully about whether to use pesticides The five simple actions were drawn up with experts from Natural England, the Food and Environment Research Agency, conservation charities and the research community.There are at least 1500 species of insect pollinators in the UK. This includes 26 species of bumble bee, 260 solitary bees, 1 honey bee species and hundreds of types of hoverflies, butterflies and moths.Defra will be publishing a national strategy for pollinators in the Autumn, following a public consultation earlier this year.Bees’ Needs videoBees’ Needs: food and a homeFriends of the Earth Executive Director Andy Atkins said: Five simple actionsWhether people live in a town or in the countryside, they are being urged to help create or improve a habitat for pollinators in five simple ways: Marylyn Haines Evans, Chair of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes Public Affairs Committee said:last_img read more

Before the run, fans became worried about the viability of these Red Rocks performances, given that the group had canceled a show at the Belly Up Aspen, announcing that the band was too sick to perform the lead-up mountain-town shows. However, clearly, the days of rest paid off, with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats playing standout shows in their hometown’s most beloved venue.While Rateliff opened Wednesday night’s show noting that “I’ve got to be honest with you: I’ve been sick. We had to cancel a show last night,” the opening remarks came after his declaration that “These two nights are the most important nights of our year.” With that, the group launched into a fiery performance, highlighting the group’s genre-blending talents. From soulful crooning to boot-stompin’ country to heartfelt folk melodies and beyond, Nathaniel Rateliff and company worked through classics of their songbook, including an end-of-set take on debatably their most famous tune, “S.O.B.”, evoking a huge breadth of emotions across the crowd.Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats – “S.O.B.” – Red Rocks Amphitheatre – 8/22/2018center_img Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Burlington unveils interactive ‘GIS’ map on Website

first_img— 30 — Source: The City of Burlington. Burlington, VT ‘ September 17, 2010. The City of Burlington announced today that a GIS (’Geographical Information System’) feature is available on the City’s Website. GIS integrates a variety of informational categories, or ‘layers,’ with an interactive map of a particular geographic area. For example, within Burlington’s GIS feature, one can choose to show all of the real estate transactions in the City over the last 12 months; clicking on a specific property will show the property address, sale date, and sale amount. ‘Layers’ on Burlington’s GIS feature include Census block tracts, current building permits, ward boundaries, the City’s FY11 street paving plans, and the location of parking garages, parking lots, and electric vehicle charging stations, among many other categories of information.‘As a City we’ve continued to look for ways to improve access to information and the availability of GIS on the City’s website offers a wealth of information in an easy to use, graphical form,’ said Mayor Bob Kiss. ‘It’s a feature that will enhance the public’s access to information, offer opportunities for better and more efficient inter-departmental communication, and in general help to promote all the things Burlington has to offer.’The City’s Director of Information Technology, Tim Barden, also cited increased access to information by the public through GIS, as well as the collaboration by multiple departments to develop the feature. ‘We’re pleased to have developed GIS as it is the ongoing goal of the City and the IT office to make public information in an electronic form as accessible and easy to use as possible. The layers that are available as of today are just the beginning. Hard work by IT staff, the involvement of Planning and Zoning, and the participation of several City departments made this possible.’The GIS effort was led by Scott Duckworth of the City’s IT office which is part of the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office. ‘Scott did a fantastic job of developing a state of the art GIS implementation for the City’ Barden said. Features were also incorporated by Planning and Zoning staff. Among other things the effort required gathering information from City departments that could be incorporated into the program. IT staff will continue to review available information for incorporation of additional ‘layers’ into GIS.The City’s GIS efforts were praised at a recent conference of municipal and county software users. At a session devoted to website presentation, Burlington’s GIS site was featured as a prime example of utilizing GIS to display a broad range of information.Burlington’s GIS can be accessed directly through http://www.ci.burlington.vt.us/gis/(link is external) or going to the City’s homepage http://www.ci.burlington.vt.us/(link is external) and clicking on ‘Geographic Information Systems’ at the top right of the homepage.last_img read more

How Democrats Missed Trump’s Appeal to Latino Voters

first_imgFellow Democrats complained about the Biden campaign’s sluggish Latino outreach for months, though the campaign eventually spent a record $20 million on Spanish-language television and radio advertising, more than double the Trump campaign’s $9 million, according to Advertising Analytics, an ad tracking firm. And both campaigns tried to target voters based on regional and national origin — there were advertisements featuring Cuban, Puerto Rican and Mexican accents.Indeed, the regional differences illustrate both political shifts and the way Latinos see themselves. In Arizona, for example, a historically Republican state shifted because of young Latinos who were politically activated by Senate Bill 1070, a 2010 state measure that was known as the “show me your papers” law and that critics called legalized racial profiling.- Advertisement – Yet one lesson of Arizona — that political identity is often built in the face of persecution — did not bear out in Texas, where over a year ago a gunman killed 22 people in El Paso, the largest anti-Latino attack in modern American history, after the authorities said he wrote a manifesto that echoed much of the president’s language.Texas didn’t even come close to flipping to the Democrats this year. Roughly 25 to 30 percent of Latino voters nationally have chosen Republican candidates for decades, but many Democrats said they were particularly alarmed by the loss of support in the Rio Grande Valley, where Mr. Biden won some border counties by significantly smaller margins than Hillary Clinton did in 2016. “People pretty much tend to attack us,” Alma Aguilar said at a small Black Lives Matter demonstration in the Phoenix suburbs this summer. “We are not treated the same way as white people.”Even as votes were still being counted, many Democrats credited young Latinas such as Ms. Aguilar for their success in the state. Local activists noted that while the Democrats celebrated, organizing voters began long before the national party invested in the state.“We did this,” said Alejandra Gomez, the co-executive director of Lucha, a voter engagement group that was established in response to anti-immigration state policies a decade ago. “We organized when nobody else was paying attention. It’s weird to say, but without that, I am not sure we would have flipped the state.”- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more
