Diamonds transforming women's lives

While synonymous with status and romance, diamonds have also been linked to controversy, colonialism and conflict. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women whose lives have been shaped and transformed by the diamond industry in Botswana and Namibia. Anna Marie Johnson was paralysed at the age of eight. Reliant on a wheelchair, she missed out on completing her education. She's found a new lease of life and renewed ambition as part of a diverse workforce at Andre Messika in Windhoek, Namibia. Naseem Lahri is the first woman, and the first female citizen of Botswana, to run a diamond mine in the country. She says she's a product of diamond mining through the funding the industry puts into education in her country and that she's delighted to be part of the process giving back to the local community.

Port Natal and Delagoa Bay are far away from Cape Town and appeared even further in the early 1820s. The Cape Governor was inevitably more concerned with what lay immediately beyond the colonial frontiers than in these distant ports. Much of what concerned Lord Charles Somerset – and had concerned his predecessors – already lay along the frontiers. The colony had thrown out an ever increasing fringe of loose cannons, skirmishers, traders, trek-boers, escaped slaves, and even rebellious missionaries. The flood of missionaries turned into a tsunami by the mid-1820s, the London Missionary Society was already at work as you know, and by now they were established along both sides of the Orange River and into the eastern Frontier. The Moravians had arrived and were carving out new parishers even further east, while the Wesleyans were already amongst the far-distant amaPondo people. The Zulu had been raiding these people from Shaka's centre of power as you know. There were a number of Scots from Glasgow who found living amongst the amaXhosa to their liking, and even missionaries from Germany showed up, particularly from Berlin, and they began living amongst the amaXhosa too. The Rhenish and Paris Evangelicals arrived too, one to work within the colony and the other headed north into Bechuanaland, and then to the Basutho. The LMS and Paris Evangelicals were moving along the first stage of what became known as the Missionary Road which led all the way from the Cape into Central Africa. By now the chiefdoms of the Caledon Valley and the open plains north of the Orange River had been squeezed between three expanding zones of instability and conflict. From the south and south west parties of Griqua, Kora and Boers were raiding for cattle and cheap labour. To the northwest, the rivalries of Batswana chiefdoms were spilling across the Vaal River. To the East, the fighting that had seen the AmaZulu and amaNdwandwe at war, as well as the amaMthethwa, had displaced groups as you've heard and some had headed across the Drakensberg. Then Lord Bathurst the Secretary of State set up an Advisory Council in Cape Town which consisted of the Governor, muttering under his bewigged breath, the Chief Justice, the colonial Secretary, the Officer commanding, the Deputy-Quartermaster-General, the Auditor General and the Treasurer. The Council was to deal with quite an interesting proposal, and this was allowing the Eastern Cape to be represented by their own council, by some kind of representative assembly. They fired the first round in what was to become a long-sustained but ultimately unsuccessful battle for separation by Eastern Capers.

When Botswana banned elephant poaching in 2014, something incredible happened: the news of the safe haven spread among herds, prompting a mass elephant migration into Botswana from neighboring countries. Now, with nearly 60% of the world's elephants residing in Botswana, the ecosystem is buckling under the pressure of supporting them. Climate change and unprecedented drought have created a water crisis for the masses of elephant refugees. In late 2019 the unimaginable happened in Botswana. The new government overturned the hunting ban and once again Botswana's elephants are on the auction block.  In January 2020 Safari Club International auctioned, a14-Day Elephant Hunt, in Botswana.        An unflinching look at the elephant migration crisis in Botswana, ELEPHANT REFUGEES documents the tragic and complex realities of unintended consequences. ● Media Inquiries: October Coast PR www.octobercoastpr.com

Ep. 46 - A Lifetime of Sculpting Nature and Wildlife with Kent and Veerle Ullberg

Episode 46 welcomes Kent and Veerle Ullberg.  Over the past 46 years, this couple has built a life, a business, and a legacy with realistic wildlife sculptures, all serving to spread the beauty of nature and engage onlookers to recognize a need for the preservation of our natural environment. Kent makes the sculptures and Veerle runs the business. They have operated in exactly this way for nearly half a century!  For more on Kent's work as a sculptor and naturalist, view his bio below. Also note the headline quote by the late Roger Tory Peterson who, himself was an author, artist, and educator, and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his extraordinary work in the field of ornithology.  "No one during the latter half of this century has celebrated the animal form with greater enthusiasm and virtuosity. Very simply, Kent's public monuments have come close to symbolize an age of environmental awareness that is a stepping stone to the next millennium." –––––– Roger Tory Peterson A native of Sweden, Kent Ullberg is recognized as one of the world's foremost wildlife sculptors. He studied at the Swedish University College of Art in Stockholm and worked at museums in Germany, the Netherlands, France, Africa and Denver, CO. After living in Botswana, Africa, for seven years he has made his home permanently in the United States where he now lives on Padre Island, Corpus Christi, TX. He also maintains a studio in Loveland, CO. Ullberg is a member of numerous art organizations and has been honored with many prestigious awards. In 1990 his peers elected him a Full Academician (NA), thus making him the first wildlife artist since John James Audubon to receive one of the greatest tributes in American art. A selection of his memberships include the National Sculpture Society; the American Society of Marine Art; the Allied Artists of America; Nature in Art, Sandhurst, UK; the National Academy of Western Art in Oklahoma City, OK which awarded him the Prix de West, the foremost recognition in Western Art. In 2010 he received the Briscoe Legacy Award and in 2016 the lifetime achievement award from the Society of Animal Artists. Best known for his monumental works executed for museums and municipalities across the globe, his Fort Lauderdale, FL, and his Omaha, NE installations are the largest bronze wildlife compositions ever done, spanning several city blocks. Both earned him the coveted Henry Hering Medal Award from the National Sculpture Society, NYC. His most recent monumental installation is "Snow-Mastodon," a life-size bronze Mastodon placed outside the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Kent's work is nothing short of "larger than life". His Spirit of Nebraska in Omaha, NE for instance, consists of 67 bronze and stainless steel works.  This site occupies the Bank properties on all four corners of the 16th and Dodge intersection as well as works on 15th Street. This wildlife monument includes 3 bulls standing at 8' and weighing nearly 1,400 pounds, several yearling bulls, and 2 cows with their calves, as well as a large water feature with 8' Canada Geese in bronze taking flight. As the geese fly across the street they are attached to 18' bronze trees, a traffic signal, the corner of a building, a light post, 2 other poles, and culminate with several stainless steel geese suspended within the glass atrium of the Bank's headquarters. Each of these works has been strategically placed to engage visitors, particularly children, as they pass. To say that Kent and Veerle have built a "successful" life in the world of art and creativity would be a complete understatement. While their days as Creative Moonlighters passed back in the 1970's, hearing their story is awe-inspiring for any creative who is currently looking for a way to make the transition from moonlighting to daylighting.  Enjoy and as always, send questions and comments to Griffyn.co@gmail.com  Visit www.kentullberg.net #kentullberg #sculptureandartist #becominganartist #spiritofnebraska #orinthology #naturalist #nature #realismart #wildlifeart #wildlifescuptures #environment #preservation #conservation #corpuschristi #padreisland #corpuschristimonument  #creativemoonlighting #griffynco #griffyncoproductions

Medical MissionaryDuring the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901),British people traveled around the whole world.They charted the seas, mapped out distant countries and studied plants, animals and people.They also claimed many lands for England.This kind of international travel was made easier by improved transportation and communication.New inventions such as steamships, trains, telegraphs and telephones made long distances seem smaller.Of course, people had different reasons for going to distant lands.Some were businessmen who saw economic opportunities overseas.Big-game hunters wanted to be the first to shoot strange animals and bring back trophies to England.Scientists intended to study unknown animals and plants.Missionaries planned to be the first to introduce Christianity to faraway people.In 1836 a young Scotsman called David Livingstone began to study medicine in Glasgow.Livingstone intended to become a medical missionary.This means that he would be a doctor, as well as a preacher and teacher.Livingstone (1813-1873) came from a poor family.From an early age, he had worked 14 hours a day in a clothing factory for very little pay.But he was determined to learn.He took his books with him to the factory and read as he worked.Then, after work, he would go to his teacher to learn more.Livingstone's goal was to teach faraway people about Jesus.However, unlike some missionaries, he was also interested in science, geography and exploring.He had planned to go to China in 1839, but because of the Opium Wars no missionaries were being sent there.Instead, he asked to go to South Africa.Europeans had traveled around the coasts of Africa for hundreds of years.But very few white people had traveled inland.A missionary named Robert Moffatt who had begun a mission at Kuruman in the interior inspired Livingstone.Livingstone arrived in Kuruman in 1841.This was the farthest outpost of white settlement, and no one seemed to want to go further inland.Livingstone felt that the missionaries should go to the Africans, rather than waiting for the Africans to come to them.With a fellow missionary he set out.When they came to an African tribe, they would talk to the chief and ask permission to preach to his people.Livingstone would also set up a tent and treat the people who had diseases.After a while, he would move on to the next tribe.Once Livingstone learned the Bantu language he would talk to many Africans.But sometimes he needed interpreters.There were many diseases, including malaria and sleeping sickness.Livingstone suffered much of his life from river fever.He was also so weak that he rode on the back of an ox.Livingstone wanted to stop the slave trade.At this time, the slave trade was the most profitable business in Africa.Livingstone hoped that if other kinds of trade were developed, then slavery could be abolished.In order to open up trade, he wanted to find an easy route into the center of Africa.Livingstone kept going further into the interior.He was probably the first European to cross the Kalahari Desert before reaching Lake Ngami in present-day Botswana.Not long after, he traveled further inland.He explored the sources of the Zambesi and Kasai rivers and eventually reached the west coast of Africa at Luanda, Angola.Livingstone was being criticized for neglecting missionary work in order to explore.Livingstone replied that he was opening up the continent for missionaries.Meanwhile, he was becoming famous as a great explorer.The British government commissioned him to explore the Zambesi River.They hoped that ships could sail up the river into the interior.Unfortunately, the Zambesi had too many rapids.However, Livingstone did find a route up the Shire River to Lake Nyassa.He continued to struggle against the slave trade which was now being taken over by Arabs.Livingstone died in Africa in 1873.He was the first white man to explore Botswana Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and surrounding areas.He was not only a great explorer, but also a fine doctor and a good missionary.Nowadays, the countries that Livingstone visited are nearly all Christian--just as he hoped they would be.翻译戴维·利文斯通?医学传教士维多利亚女王统治期间(1837-1901年),英国人周游世界。他们绘制了海洋图,绘制了遥远的国家地图,研究了植物、动物和人。他们还为英格兰夺取了许多土地。由于交通和通讯的改善,这种国际旅行变得更加容易。新的发明,如轮船、火车、电报机和电话,使得远距离看起来更短。当然,人们去遥远的地方有不同的原因。有些是看到海外经济机会的商人。大型猎物猎人希望成为第一个射杀奇怪动物并将战利品带回英格兰的人。科学家们打算研究未知的动植物。传教士计划成为第一个向遥远的人们介绍基督教的人。1836年,一位名叫戴维·利文斯通的年轻苏格兰人开始在格拉斯哥学习医学。利文斯通打算成为一名医学传教士。这意味着他将成为一名医生,同时也是一名传教士和教师。利文斯通(1813-1873)来自一个贫穷的家庭。从很小的时候起,他就在一家服装厂每天工作14小时,工资微薄。但他决心学习。他把书带到工厂,边工作边看书。然后,下班后,他会去他的老师那里学习更多。利文斯通的目标是教导遥远的人们关于耶稣的事。然而,与一些传教士不同,他也对科学、地理和探索感兴趣。他计划在1839年去中国,但由于鸦片战争,没有传教士被派往那里。相反,他要求去南非。数百年来,欧洲人在非洲海岸旅行。但很少有白人去过内陆。一位名叫罗伯特·莫法特(Robert Moffatt)的传教士在内陆的库鲁曼(Kuruman)开始了一次传教,他启发了利文斯通(Livingstone)。利文斯通于1841年抵达库鲁曼。这是白人定居点最远的前哨,似乎没有人想再往内陆走。利文斯通认为传教士应该去非洲人那里,而不是等非洲人来找他们。他和一位传教士同行出发了。当他们来到一个非洲部落时,他们会与酋长交谈,并请求允许向他的人民布道。利文斯通还将搭起帐篷,治疗患病者。过了一段时间,他会搬到下一个部落。一旦利文斯通学会了班图语,他就会和许多非洲人交谈。但有时他需要口译员。那里有许多疾病,包括疟疾和昏睡病。利文斯通一生中大部分时间都在遭受河热病。他也很虚弱,骑在牛背上。利文斯通想阻止奴隶贸易。当时,奴隶贸易是非洲最赚钱的生意。利文斯通希望,如果发展其他类型的贸易,那么奴隶制就可以废除。为了开放贸易,他想找到一条通往非洲中心的捷径。利文斯通继续深入内部。他可能是第一个穿越卡拉哈里沙漠到达今天博茨瓦纳的恩加米湖的欧洲人。不久之后,他前往内陆。他探索了赞比西河和卡赛河的源头,最终到达了安哥拉罗安达的非洲西海岸。利文斯通因忽视传教工作而受到批评。利文斯通回答说,他正在向传教士开放非洲大陆。与此同时,他作为一名伟大的探险家而出名。英国政府委托他探索赞比西河。他们希望船只能顺河航行到内陆。不幸的是,赞比西河有太多的急流。然而,利文斯通确实找到了一条从夏尔河到尼亚萨湖的路线。他继续与奴隶贸易作斗争,而奴隶贸易现在正被阿拉伯人占领。利文斯通于1873年在非洲去世。他是第一个探索博茨瓦纳、津巴布韦、赞比亚、马拉维和周边地区的白人。他不仅是一位伟大的探险家,也是一位优秀的医生和传教士。如今,利文斯通访问的国家几乎都是基督徒——正如他所希望的那样。

Victoria covers the latest iteration of a popular Nautilus and what it means for the direction of the Patek Philippe brand.Show Notes01:00 Victoria interviewed the president of Bulgari who was in the Maldives.04:30 A recap of Conversations in Park City09:00 A change in leadership at De Beers19:55 New Patek Philippe watchEpisode CreditsHosts: Rob Bates and Victoria GomelskyProducer and engineer: Natalie ChometPlugs: @jckmagazine, jckonline.com Show RecapHospitality Meets JewelryVictoria got up early to speak to the president of Bvlgari, Daniel Paltridge, who was in the Maldives at the time. They talk about the Bvlgari hotel and how expensive it is—€2,500 per night! Rob wonders what guests might get in addition to the room for that price. (Likely not jewelry.) There are other examples of brands that cross over from fashion to hospitality—Armani, Shinola, etc. The hope is that you can capture an audience in one and then target them in the other side of the business.Conversations with Friends—in Park CityVictoria recently traveled to Park City, UT, to Conversations in Park City, the leadership summit hosted by Jewelers Mutual. The brainchild of Mark Smelzer, head of content for Jewelers Mutual (and JCK's former publisher). He had a vision to pull together the crème de la crème of the industry and bringing them all to a leadership retreat. Everyone met at the St. Regis in Deer Valley, with their loved ones in tow. Victoria brought her family and enjoyed the wonderful weather.But the main focus was the content. Mark pulled in one of the leading thinkers on retail strategy and futurism, PSFK. Jeff Weiner of PSFK brought in some experts that they've used for their presentations—on the omnichannel experience, “phigital” retail, and other things retailers need to be prepared for. It was both present- and future-focused, informing retailers about shifts in the consumer atmosphere. Though Victoria tends to tune out when people talk about NFTs, she found this coverage easier to digest. It was a beautiful setting for some great conversations. Overall, the event was brief and meaningful. She hopes there will be another one next year.A Change in Leadership for De BeersRob reports that Bruce Cleaver is stepping down as CEO of De Beers and handing over the reins to Al Cook—an industry outsider who worked for an energy company. His predecessor, Philippe Mellier, was also an outsider. He got great results for the bottom line of the company, but injured some relationships with clients who felt he drove prices too high. Bruce repaired that relationship, and is well-respected. Though it's not clear why he is leaving this position, he will still be involved as co-chairman. It's a job where you're never bored because there are so many aspects to it.Victoria wonders about the selection process. She points out that the new CEO is another European white man. Was anyone from their stakeholder countries considered? Some people have pointed out that De Beers is an African company that caters to women, yet all of its CEOs have been white men. People have comment that Al Cook doesn't have the background on marketing, branding, etc. An outsider will have to be tutored in the varied aspects of the business. It's also of note that Bruce is leaving without a contract with Botswana. A rough agreement has been drafted, but not signed yet. De Beers' portfolio has been diversified by lab-grown, which might give them some leverage.The Lab-Grown Diamond TrajectoryIt's been four years since Lightbox came out. Lab-grown is such a complicated market. Many still don't accept it as a viable category. Swarovski is rolling out lab-grown as well. Breitling has just announced they're starting to use lab-grown diamonds and fully traceable gold. This is more transparent than Victoria has seen a Swiss brand be. It's clear that lab-grown is going to be part of the conversation going forward.New Patek Philippe Watch Speaking of watches! Victoria wrote an NYT piece about a Patek Philippe watch using white gold that might “break the horological internet.” The long-awaited successor to the 5711—a hyped but discontinued watch model— is here. Called the 5811, its main difference is that it's in white gold instead of steel. A Nautilus that has been around since 1976, Victoria is confident it will be popular. It's close to people's hearts, and has always been in steel until now. They're breaking away from the steel sport models that fetch more than the gold models.They went to the prestige category. What they are concerned about is the preservation of the brand. It'll be hard to acquire by an average consumer. Their aim is to elevate the brand.

Despite the recognition that successful mentoring experiences are usually the result of intentional and committed relationships between mentor and mentee, there are still challenges in achieving consistent, positive outcomes for mission driven Christ followers in healthcare. Healthcare missionaries, whether domestic or foreign, face unexpected challenges, failures, and disappointments, both on and off the field of service, across a broad spectrum of life, work, and ministry. This talk will focus on the essential commitments of both mentor and mentee during the early career of cross-cultural workers who serve in diverse living and working environments.

(12:21) A «3ª vaga de democratização»: O que correu mal? | Como evoluiu de lá para cá? Francis Fukuyama e o Fim da História. | O que há de especial nos países africanos mais democráticos?  (26:57) Os desafios da democracia em África. Diversidade étnica e comunitarismo. | É preciso “africanizar a democracia”. O caso de sucesso do Botswana  (38:13) O tipo de colonização de cada país impactou o sucesso da democratização? A «maldição dos recursos naturais». É possível prever o sucesso da democratização com base em diferentes realidades pré-coloniais? (48:34) Casos de sucesso de democratização no século XXI? Seicheles, Zâmbia, Malawi (acção do Tribunal Constitucional). Mo Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG). | O caso do Rwanda.  (57:10) Casos de INsucesso de democratização no século XXI? Guiné Equatorial, Eswatini, Chade, Camarões, Djibuti. | O mundo lusófono: Angola e Moçambique.  (1:04:22) Que podemos esperar no futuro da democracia em África? O crescimento dos protestos populares em vários países.  Livro recomendado: Marcher, une philosophie, de Frédéric Gros _______________ África é um continente gigante, com 54 países, étnica e culturalmente diverso e com um enorme potencial ainda por desenvolver. Mas é também vítima de uma História… complicada (para usar um eufemismo), com séculos de exploração europeia, primeiro, e colonialismo, depois.  O pós II Guerra Mundial trouxe uma nova esperança ao continente, com 30 países a tornarem-se independentes entre 1945 e 1960.  As promessas de democracia e liberdade saíram, porém, esfumadas, com muitos países a acabarem dominados por regimes autoritários. No final dos anos 1980, começou uma nova era de optimismo, com a chamada “3ª onda de democratização mundial” (cujo início se convencionou ser o nosso 25 de abril) a ganhar em África um ímpeto especialmente grande, combinando uma conjuntura internacional favorável (com a queda da URSS) com importantes protestos políticos a nível doméstico. Neste período, diversos países conseguiram iniciar processos de liberalização política para sistemas mais democráticos. No entanto, desde então, a verdade é que tem havido poucos ou nenhuns progressos ao nível da democracia em África (sobretudo se excluirmos a Primavera Árabe, no caso dos países acima do Sahara, cujo sucesso, de resto, acabou por ser reduzido). Hoje, menos de 10 de entre os 54 países que compõem o continente, são considerados democracias “liberais”. Se excluirmos países-ilhas, falamos essencialmente do Gana e dos três países mais a sul: África do Sul, Botswana e Namíbia. Ao olhar para o estado da democracia em África há, por isso, várias perguntas a que é preciso responder.  O que correu mal no processo de independência, em particular naqueles países que tinham, na altura, líderes independentistas tão promissores?  No sentido inverso, o que permitiu os avanços da democracia nos anos 1990? E o que explica os parcos progressos desde então?  Por outro lado, que factores comuns podemos identificar num continente tão grande e tão diverso?  E, finalmente, o que podemos esperar no futuro da democracia no continente nas próximas décadas?  Para responder a estas questões, dificilmente poderia pedir melhor pessoa do que a convidada deste episódio. Foi uma conversa muito elucidativa, sobre uma realidade muito complexa e à qual não damos, porventura, a devida atenção.  _______________ Obrigado aos mecenas do podcast: Julie Piccini, Ana Raquel Guimarães Galaró family, José Luís Malaquias, Francisco Hermenegildo, Nuno Costa, Abílio Silva, Salvador Cunha, Bruno Heleno, António llms, Helena Monteiro, BFDC, Pedro Lima Ferreira, Miguel van Uden, João Ribeiro, Nuno e Ana, João Baltazar, Miguel Marques, Corto Lemos, Carlos Martins, Tiago Leite Tomás Costa, Rita Sá Marques, Geoffrey Marcelino, Luis, Maria Pimentel, Rui Amorim, RB, Pedro Frois Costa, Gabriel Sousa, Mário Lourenço, Filipe Bento Caires, Diogo Sampaio Viana, Tiago Taveira, Ricardo Leitão, Pedro B.

On today's episode I'm joined by one of British TV's most famous faces, Richard Hammond. Stepping into the spotlight over twenty years ago, Richard became one third of the iconic trio to front the BBC's motoring show, Top Gear, alongside James May and Jeremy Clarkson. The show went on to become the world's most watched factual TV programme - as proven by the Guiness book of records - at its peak 350 million viewers around the world were tuning in each week. The show saw the trio travel all over the world to take on epic motoring challenges, which they've since continued on The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime, where the three embark on car related challenges across the world. Now when I say these shows have taken Richard all over the world, I'm not exaggerating: the filmography includes Norway, Canada, Botswana, Vietnam, Chile, Argentina, Namibia, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Israel, India, Madagascar, Mongolia - and that's only half of them. Richard recounts some of these epic adventures on today's episode, taking us from Canada to Botswana, to Bolivia, as well as to some much loved spots on British soil.Destination RecapThe Forest of Dean, EnglandBiblins Campsite, Ross-on-Wye, EnglandCoast to Coast walk across EnglandButtermere, Lake District, EnglandNorth Magnetic Pole, Northern Canada BotswanaMozambiqueCanadian ForestCambodia + Vietnam road tripMikadikadi Salt Flats, Botswana Kubu Island, BotswanaBolivian rain forestSouth PoleRichard Hammond's Workshop Season 2 will be available to stream exclusively on discovery+ from Monday 17th OctoberWith thanks to…Sonnwies, South Tyrol's mountain family-only wellness hotel with its own organic farm.

Si la surface de la Terre est composée de 70 % d'eau, on ne pensait pas que celle-ci se retrouvait dans des couches très profondes. En effet, la présence d'eau, pour les scientifiques, se limitait, pour l'essentiel, au manteau supérieur de la Terre, situé directement sous la croûte terrestre. L'apport d'eau, dans ces zones, est surtout dû aux phénomènes de subduction. Ils voient une plaque océanique plonger sous une autre plaque. Ce faisant, elle entraîne de grandes quantités d'eau dans son mouvement. Il ne s'agit d'ailleurs pas d'une eau libre. Elle se trouve en quelque sorte incluse dans les minéraux et les sédiments. C'est pourquoi on parle de minéraux hydratés. Jusque-là, on n'avait pas retrouvé ce type de minéraux à une profondeur supérieure à 322 mètres. Une eau plus profonde Mais une récente découverte remet en question ce schéma. De l'eau pourrait se trouver dans des couches plus profondes. Pour défendre cette nouvelle théorie, les scientifiques s'appuient sur la mise au jour d'un petit diamant. Il a été trouvé dans une mine du Botswana. Il comportait une inclusion spécifique, contenant des traces de minéraux hydratés. Or, l'un d'entre eux, la ringwoodite, ne peut se former qu'à une grande profondeur, estimée par les scientifiques à environ 660 kilomètres. Le fragment de ringwoodite emprisonné dans le diamant semblait contenir beaucoup d'eau. Cette découverte serait donc la preuve que des minéraux hydratés, et donc d'assez grandes quantités d'eau, pourraient se trouver dans la zone de transition entre le manteau supérieur et le manteau inférieur, voir même dans ce dernier. On trouverait donc de l'eau dans des couches plus profondes que ce qu'on avait imaginé. Cette découverte permettrait d'en apprendre davantage sur l'étendue et le comportement de cette eau souterraine. Il devrait également affiner nos connaissances sur le mécanisme de la tectonique des plaques. Ceci étant, il ne faut pas se figurer cette eau souterraine comme la mer imaginée par Jules Verne dans son roman "Voyage au centre de la Terre". En effet, elle reste emprisonnée dans les minéraux qui la contiennent. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Ipumbu wou hê dat die minister terugvoering moet gee oor die stand van sake rakende die inwoners van Zambezi-streek wat ly onder die Botswana-weermag en in vrees langs die grens leef.
