International Day for Disaster Reduction

International Day for Disaster Reduction

Posted Sun, 13 Oct 2013 10:00:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The supply of days may soon run out when we can have simply one day for each cause. Disaster mitigation however is a real problem. If we are to combat the results of earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts and floods, we must prepare to help every member of any community, and not just the ones who can help themselves. There exist many emergency teams who are trained to help with anyone disabled, but it is the community who must also have this training, as it could be anyone who ends up disabled in the disaster!

The agenda is children, the outcome should be equality. How do we even up the playing board so that all can contribute to a better world?

Today is World Teachers' Day 2013. While many gain notoriety or fame by making profits, the average teacher manages much more by simply developing expertise. She or he simply encourages achievement in others.

World Animal Day 2013

Why not rediscover your enthusiasm for every animal on earth? While we concentrate on wildlife, the love of life easily stretches to farm animals, our pets and, of course, the mistreatment that some creatures, both domestic and wild and free, suffer from human interference.

Arctic Exploitation - Murmansk Pirates

Unresolved, but still liable to blow up into another international row, the Arctic's exploitation is being shown up by the Greenpeace action. Military involvement seems to be part of the Russian reaction to any denial of their supposed rights to territory that belongs to no one.

With Syria now threatening a world that has been becoming a little more peaceful, the International Day Against Nuclear Testing is one we should consider as useful to remind everybody just what the people of the world want, if not the politicians.

The life of the Yasuni Reserve in the Amazon is not as we know it. With 44 times the biodiversity of the whole of one country in one hectare, it exhibits a show of insect, amphibian, bird and even mammalian species that we can’t imagine. Now replace them all with oil rigs.

Columbia University has created a maelstrom with publication of probable links between waste water injection and quakes. Long suspected, this evidence is pretty damning, and useful ammunition for the anti-fracking lobby.

Conservation protocols between China and the US

Conservation protocols between China and the US

Posted Sun, 30 Jun 2013 12:48:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The US and China cooperate in many areas but the surprising thing about this "protocol" is the way in which it quietly continues, without, hopefully, too much argument.

World Refugee Day, 20th June 2013

World Refugee Day 2013 is hardly a celebration. Affluent nations are struggling now, but without the labour and resources of weak nations, the affluence will disappear altogether. Help is most definitely needed for those who suffer so much more than we do, wherever they are.

The International Day of United Nations Peace Keepers was first celebrated on 29th May 2003.
