The EU has contributed to creating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), established in 2015, as part of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and takes action to implement them through its internal and external policies, as outlined in the 'Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030' reflection paper, the European Green Deal, the European Commission's political priorities and its work programme. The Sustainable Development Goals also have a regional dimension, sometimes called 'localisation'. Achieving around 65 % of the targets is estimated to require local and regional authority participation. Numerous regions and cities, including in the EU, have expressed support for the SDGs and many have integrated them in their policy frameworks. - Original publication on the EP Think Tank website - Subscription to our RSS feed in case your have your own RSS reader - Podcast available on Deezer, iTunes, TuneIn, Stitcher, YouTubeSource: © European Union - EP

Sign up for bonus episodes at www.themidnighttrainpodcast.com    Well since last week's episode left Logan up at night with nightmares and I still can't get the stains out of my shorts; we have decided to make this week's episode a little more on the lighter side. So we are diving deep into the wonderful world of politics! You got it, today we are going to discuss The Biden Administrations wonderful and brilliant plans and maybe even get an interview with Brandon himself! HA like that would ever happen. Fuck those guys. We are actually talking about the Antikythera Mechanism, and the mysteries surrounding it.   The Antikythera mechanism is a hand-powered orrery( a mechanical model of our solar system) from Ancient Greece that has been dubbed the world's first analog computer since it was used to forecast celestial locations and eclipses decades in advance. The ancient Olympic Games' four-year cycle, which was akin to an Olympiad, could also be followed using this method.   In 1901, wreckage from a shipwreck off the shore of the Greek island of Antikythera included this artifact. Archaeologist Valerios Stais recognized it as bearing a gear on May 17, 1902. The gadget, which was found as a single lump and then fragmented into three primary components that are now divided into 82 individual shards following conservation efforts, was contained in the remnants of a wooden box that measured 34 cm 18 cm 9 cm (13.4 in 7.1 in 3.5 in). While several of these shards have inscriptions, four of them have gears. The biggest gear has 223 teeth and is around 13 centimeters (5.1 in) in diameter.   Using contemporary computer x-ray tomography and high resolution surface scanning, a team at Cardiff University led by Mike Edmunds and Tony Freeth was able to image inside fragments of the crust-encased mechanism in 2008 and decipher the faintest writing that had once been inscribed on the machine's outer casing. This shows that it contained 37 bronze meshing gears that allowed it to mimic the Moon's erratic orbit, where the Moon's velocity is higher in its perigee than in its apogee, follow the motions of the Moon and Sun across the zodiac, and anticipate eclipses. Astronomer Hipparchus of Rhodes researched this motion in the second century BC, and it is possible that he was consulted when building the device. It is believed that a piece of the system, which also determined the locations of the five classical planets, is missing.   The device has been variously dated to between 150 and 100 BC, or to 205 BC, and it is thought to have been devised and built by Greek scientists. In any event, it had to have been built prior to the shipwreck, which has been dated to around 70–60 BC by many lines of evidence. Researchers suggested in 2022 that the machine's initial calibration date, rather than the actual date of manufacture, would have been December 23, 178 BC. Some academics disagree, arguing that the calibration date should be 204 BC. Up to the astronomical clocks of Richard of Wallingford and Giovanni de' Dondi in the fourteenth century, comparable complicated machines had not been seen.   The National Archaeological Museum in Athens currently has all of the Antikythera mechanism's fragments as well as a variety of reproductions and artistic reconstructions that show how it would have appeared and operated.   During the first voyage with the Hellenic Royal Navy, in 1900–1901, Captain Dimitrios Kontos and a crew of sponge divers from Symi island found the Antikythera shipwreck. Off Point Glyphadia on the Greek island of Antikythera, at a depth of 45 meters (148 feet), a Roman cargo ship wreck was discovered. The crew found various huge items, including the mechanism, ceramics, special glassware, jewelry, bronze and marble statues, and more. In 1901, most likely that July, the mechanism was pulled from the rubble. The mechanism's origin remains unknown, however it has been speculated that it was transported from Rhodes to Rome along with other seized goods to assist a triumphant procession that Julius Caesar was staging.   The National Museum of Archaeology in Athens received all the salvaged debris pieces for storage and examination. The museum personnel spent two years assembling more visible artifacts, like the sculptures, but the mechanism, which looked like a mass of tarnished brass and wood, remained unseen. The mechanism underwent deformational modifications as a result of not treating it after removal from saltwater.   Archaeologist Valerios Stais discovered a gear wheel lodged in one of the rocks on May 17, 1902. Although most experts judged the object to be prochronistic and too complicated to have been created during the same era as the other components that had been unearthed, he originally thought it was an astronomical clock. Before British science historian and Yale University professor Derek J. de Solla Price developed an interest in the object in 1951, investigations into the object were abandoned. The 82 pieces were photographed using X-ray and gamma-ray technology in 1971 by Price and Greek nuclear researcher Charalampos Karakalos. In 1974, Price issued a 70-page report summarizing their findings.   In 2012 and 2015, two more searches at the Antikythera wreck site turned up artifacts and another ship that may or may not be related to the treasure ship on which the mechanism was discovered. A bronze disc decorated with a bull's head was also discovered. Some speculated that the disc, which has four "ears" with holes in them, may have served as a "cog wheel" in the Antikythera mechanism. There doesn't seem to be any proof that it was a component of the mechanism; it's more probable that the disc was a bronze ornament on some furniture.   The earliest analog computer is typically referred to as the Antikythera mechanism. The production of the device must have had undiscovered ancestors throughout the Hellenistic era based on its quality and intricacy. It is believed to have been erected either in the late second century BC or the early first century BC, and its construction was based on mathematical and astronomical ideas created by Greek scientists during the second century BC.   Since they recognized the calendar on the Metonic Spiral as originating from Corinth or one of its colonies in northwest Greece or Sicily, further investigation by the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project in 2008 showed that the idea for the mechanism may have originated in the colonies of Corinth. The Antikythera Mechanism Research Initiative contended in 2008 that Syracuse could suggest a relationship with the school of Archimedes because it was a Corinthian colony and the home of Archimedes. In 2017, it was shown that the Metonic Spiral's calendar is of the Corinthian type and cannot be a Syracuse calendar. Another idea postulates that the device's origin may have come from the ancient Greek city of Pergamon, site of the Library of Pergamum, and claims that coins discovered by Jacques Cousteau at the wreck site in the 1970s correspond to the time of the device's creation. It was second in significance to the Library of Alexandria during the Hellenistic era due to its extensive collection of art and scientific scrolls.   A theory that the gadget was built in an academy established by Stoic philosopher Posidonius on that Greek island is supported by the discovery of Rhodian-style vases aboard the ship that carried the object. Hipparchus, an astronomer active from around 140 BC to 120 BC, lived at Rhodes, which was a bustling commercial port and a center for astronomy and mechanical engineering. Hipparchus' hypothesis of the motion of the Moon is used by the mechanism, raising the likelihood that he may have developed it or at the very least worked on it. The island of Rhodes is situated between the latitudes of 35.85 and 36.50 degrees north; it has lately been proposed that the astronomical events on the Parapegma of the Antikythera mechanism operate best for latitudes in the range of 33.3-37.0 degrees north.   According to a research published in 2014 by Carman and Evans, the Saros Dial's start-up date corresponds to the astronomical lunar month that started soon after the new moon on April 28, 205 BC. This suggests a revised dating of about 200 BC. Carman and Evans claim that the Babylonian arithmetic style of prediction suits the device's predictive models considerably better than the conventional Greek trigonometric approach does. According to a 2017 study by Paul Iversen, the device's prototype originated in Rhodes, but this particular model was modified for a customer from Epirus in northwest Greece. Iversen contends that the device was likely built no earlier than a generation before the shipwreck, a date that is also supported by Jones.   In an effort to learn more about the mechanism, further dives were made in 2014 and 2015. A five-year investigative program that started in 2014 and finished in October 2019 was followed by a second five-year session that began in May 2020.   The original mechanism probably came in one encrusted piece from the Mediterranean. It broke into three main parts shortly after that. In the meanwhile, more little fragments have come loose from handling and cleaning, and the Cousteau expedition discovered other fragments on the ocean floor. Fragment F was found in this fashion in 2005, suggesting that other fragments may still remain in storage, undetected since their first retrieval. The majority of the mechanism and inscriptions are found on seven of the 82 known fragments, which are also mechanically noteworthy. Additionally, 16 smaller components include inscriptions that are illegible and fragmentary.    The twelve zodiacal signs are divided into equal 30-degree sectors on a fixed ring dial that represents the ecliptic on the mechanism's front face. Even though the borders of the constellations were arbitrary, this was consistent with the Babylonian practice of allocating an equal portion of the ecliptic to each zodiac sign. The Sothic Egyptian calendar, which has twelve months of 30 days plus five intercalary days, is marked off with a rotating ring that is located outside that dial. The Greek alphabetized versions of the Egyptian names for the months are used to identify them. To align the Egyptian calendar ring with the current zodiac points, the first procedure is to spin it. Due to the Egyptian calendar's disregard for leap days, a whole zodiac sign would cycle through every 120 years.   Now we cannot show you pictures because well you couldn't see them. So we will try to describe them as best we can and we can also post them online.    The mechanism was turned by a now-lost little hand crank that was connected to the biggest gear, the four-spoked gear shown on the front of fragment A, gear b1, via a crown gear. As a result, the date indicator on the front dial was shifted to the appropriate day of the Egyptian calendar. Since the year cannot be changed, it is necessary to know the year that is currently in use. Alternatively, since most calendar cycles are not synchronized with the year, the cycles indicated by the various calendar cycle indicators on the back can be found in the Babylonian ephemeris tables for the day of the year that is currently in use. If the mechanism were in good operating order, the crank would easily be able to strike a certain day on the dial because it moves the date marker around 78 days each full rotation. The mechanism's interlocking gears would all revolve as the hand crank was turned, allowing for the simultaneous determination of the Sun's and Moon's positions, the moon's phase, the timing of an eclipse, the calendar cycle, and maybe the positions of planets.   The position of the spiral dial pointers on the two huge dials on the rear had to be observed by the operator as well. As the dials included four and five complete rotations of the pointers, the pointer had a "follower" that followed the spiral incisions in the metal. Before continuing, a pointer's follower had to be manually shifted to the opposite end of the spiral after reaching the terminal month place at either end of the spiral.   Two circular concentric scales may be seen on the front dial. The Greek zodiac signs are denoted on the inner scale, which is divided into degrees. A series of similar holes underneath the movable ring that rests flush with the surface and runs in a channel that makes up the outer scale are marked off with what appear to be days.   This outer ring has been thought to symbolize the 365-day Egyptian calendar ever since the mechanism was discovered, but new study contradicts this assumption and suggests it is really divided into 354 intervals. The Sothic and Callippic cycles had previously pointed to a 365 14-day solar year, as evidenced in Ptolemy III's proposed calendar reform of 238 BC. If one accepts the 365-day presupposition, it is acknowledged that the mechanism predates the Julian calendar reform. The dials aren't thought to represent his intended leap day, but by rotating the scale back one day every four years, the outer calendar dial may be adjusted against the inner dial to account for the effect of the extra quarter-day in the solar year.   The ring is most likely seen as a manifestation of a 354-day lunar calendar if one accepts the 354-day evidence. It is perhaps the first instance of the Egyptian civil-based lunar calendar postulated by Richard Anthony Parker in 1950, given the age of the mechanism's putative manufacture and the existence of Egyptian month names. The lunar calendar was intended to act as a daily indicator of succeeding lunations and to aid in the understanding of the Metonic(The moon phases return at the same time of year every almost precisely 19 years during the Metonic cycle. Although the recurrence is imperfect, careful examination shows that the Metonic cycle, which is defined as 235 synodic months, is only 2 hours, 4 minutes, and 58 seconds longer than 19 tropical years. In the fifth century BC, Meton of Athens determined that the cycle was exactly 6,940 days long. The creation of a lunisolar calendar is made easier by using these full integers.) and Saros(The saros, which may be used to forecast solar and lunar eclipses, is a period of exactly 223 synodic months, or around 6585.3211 days, or 18 years, 10, 11, or 12 days (depending on how many leap years there are). In what is known as an eclipse cycle, the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to about the same relative geometry, a nearly straight line, one saros time after an eclipse, and a nearly similar eclipse will take place. A sar is a saros's lower half.) dials as well as the Lunar phase pointer. Unknown gearing is assumed to move a pointer across this scale in synchrony with the rest of the mechanism's Metonic gearing. A one-in-76-year Callippic cycle correction and practical lunisolar intercalation were made possible by the movement and registration of the ring with respect to the underlying holes.   The dial also shows the Sun's location on the ecliptic in relation to the current year's date. The ecliptic serves as a useful reference for determining the locations of the Moon, the five planets known to the Greeks, and other celestial bodies whose orbits are similarly near to it.   The locations of bodies on the ecliptic were marked by at least two points. The position of the Moon was displayed by a lunar pointer, while the location of the mean Sun and the current date were also provided. The Moon position was the oldest known application of epicyclic gearing(Two gears positioned so that one gear's center spins around the other's center make up an epicyclic gear train, sometimes referred to as a planetary gearset.), and it mimicked the acceleration and deceleration of the Moon's elliptical orbit rather than being a simple mean Moon indicator that would signal movement uniformly across a circular orbit.   The system followed the Metonic calendar, anticipated solar eclipses, and computed the time of various panhellenic athletic competitions, including the Ancient Olympic Games, according to recent research published in the journal Nature in July 2008. The names of the months on the instrument closely resemble those found on calendars from Epirus in northwest Greece and with Corfu, which was formerly known as Corcyra.   Five dials are located on the rear of the mechanism: the Metonic, Saros, and two smaller ones, the so-called Olympiad Dial (recently renamed the Games dial since it did not track Olympiad years; the four-year cycle it closely matches is the Halieiad), the Callippic(a certain approximate common multiple of the synodic month and the tropical year that was put out by Callippus around 330 BC. It is a 76-year span that is an improvement over the Metonic cycle's 19 years.), and the Exeligmos(a time frame of 54 years, 33 days over which further eclipses with the same characteristics and position may be predicted.)   Both the front and rear doors of the wooden casing that houses the mechanism have inscriptions on them. The "instruction manual" looks to be behind the rear door. "76 years, 19 years" is inscribed on one of its parts, denoting the Callippic and Metonic cycles. "223" for the Saros cycle is also written. Another piece of it has the phrase "on the spiral subdivisions 235," which alludes to the Metonic dial.   The mechanism is exceptional due to the degree of miniaturization and the intricacy of its components, which is equivalent to that of astronomical clocks from the fourteenth century. Although mechanism specialist Michael Wright has argued that the Greeks of this era were capable of designing a system with many more gears, it includes at least 30 gears. Whether the device contained signs for each of the five planets known to the ancient Greeks is a subject of significant controversy. With the exception of one 63-toothed gear that is otherwise unaccounted for, no gearing for such a planetary display is still in existence.   It is quite likely that the mechanism featured additional gearing that was either removed before being placed onboard the ship or lost in or after the shipwreck due to the enormous gap between the mean Sun gear and the front of the box as well as the size and mechanical characteristics on the mean Sun gear. Numerous attempts to mimic what the Greeks of the time would have done have been made as a result of the absence of evidence and the nature of the front section of the mechanism, and of course various solutions have been proposed as a result of the lack of evidence.   Michael Wright was the first to create a model that included a simulation of a future planetarium system in addition to the existing mechanism. He said that corrections for the deeper, more fundamental solar anomaly would have been undertaken in addition to the lunar anomaly (known as the "first anomaly"). Along with the well-known "mean sun" (present time) and lunar pointers, he also provided pointers for this "real sun," Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.   A solution that differs significantly from Wright's was published by Evans, Carman, and Thorndike. Their suggestion focused on the uneven spacing of the letters on the front clock face, which seemed to them to imply an off-center sun indication arrangement. By eliminating the requirement to imitate the solar anomaly, this would simplify the mechanism. Additionally, they proposed that simple dials for each individual planet would display data such as significant planetary cycle events, initial and final appearances in the night sky, and apparent direction changes rather than accurate planetary indication, which is rendered impossible by the offset inscriptions. Compared to Wright's concept, this system would result in a far more straightforward gear system with significantly lower forces and complexity.   After much investigation and labor, Freeth and Jones released their idea in 2012. They developed a concise and workable answer to the planetary indicator puzzle. They also suggest that the date pointer, which displays the mean position of the Sun and the date on the month dial, be separated to display the solar anomaly (i.e., the sun's apparent location in the zodiac dial). If the two dials are properly synced, Wright's front panel display may be shown on the other dials as well. However, unlike Wright's model, this one is simply a 3-D computer simulation and has not been physically constructed.   Similar devices A first-century BC philosophical debate by Cicero, De re publica (54-51 BC), discusses two devices that some contemporary authors believe to be some sort of planetarium or orrery, forecasting the motions of the Sun, Moon, and the five planets known at the time. After Archimedes' demise at the siege of Syracuse in 212 BC, the Roman commander Marcus Claudius Marcellus took both of them to Rome. One of these devices was the sole thing Marcellus preserved during the siege because of his admiration for Archimedes (the second was placed in the Temple of Virtue). The instrument was kept as a family heirloom, and according to Philus, who was present during a conversation Cicero imagined had taken place in Scipio Aemilianus's villa in the year 129 BC, Gaius Sulpicius Gallus, who served as consul with Marcellus's nephew in 166 BC and is credited by Pliny the Elder with being the first Roman to have written a book explaining solar and lunar eclipses, gave both a "learned explanation" and working demonstrations of the device.   According to Pappus of Alexandria (290–c. 350 AD), Archimedes had penned a now-lost treatise titled On Sphere-Making that described how to build these contraptions. Many of his innovations are described in the ancient documents that have survived, some of which even have crude illustrations. His odometer is one such instrument; the Romans later used a similar device to set their mile marks (described by Vitruvius, Heron of Alexandria and in the time of Emperor Commodus). Although the pictures in the literature looked to be practical, attempts to build them as shown had been unsuccessful. The system worked properly when the square-toothed gears in the illustration were swapped out for the angled gears found in the Antikythera mechanism.   This technique existed as early as the third century BC, if Cicero's story is accurate. Later Roman authors including Lactantius (Divinarum Institutionum Libri VII), Claudian (In sphaeram Archimedes), and Proclus (Commentary on the First Book of Euclid's Elements of Geometry) in the fourth and fifth century also make reference to Archimedes' invention.   Cicero also said that another such device was built "recently" by his friend Posidonius, "... each one of the revolutions of which brings about the same movement in the Sun and Moon and five wandering stars [planets] as is brought about each day and night in the heavens"   Given that the third device was almost certainly in Posidonius's possession by that time and that both the Archimedes-made and Cicero-mentioned machines were found in Rome at least 30 years after the shipwreck's estimated date, it is unlikely that any one of these machines was the Antikythera mechanism discovered in the wreck. The researchers who rebuilt the Antikythera mechanism concur that it was too complex to have been a singular invention.   This proof that the Antikythera mechanism was not unique strengthens the argument that there was a tradition of complex mechanical technology in ancient Greece that was later, at least in part, transmitted to the Byzantine and Islamic worlds. During the Middle Ages, complex mechanical devices that were still simpler than the Antikythera mechanism were built in these cultures.A fifth- or sixth-century Byzantine Empire geared calendar fragment that was mounted to a sundial and maybe used to help tell time has been discovered. The Caliph of Baghdad commissioned Bani Ms's Kitab al-Hiyal, also known as the Book of Ingenious Devices, in the early ninth century AD. Over a hundred mechanical devices were detailed in this document, some of which may have been found in monastic manuscripts from antiquity. Around 1000, the scholar al-Biruni described a geared calendar that was comparable to the Byzantine mechanism, and a 13th-century astrolabe also had a clockwork system that is similar to it. It's probable that this medieval technology was brought to Europe and had a part in the region's development of mechanical clocks.   Su Song, a Chinese polymath, built a mechanical clock tower in the 11th century that, among other things, measured the positions of several stars and planets that were shown on an armillary sphere that spun mechanically.   Conspiracy Corner The Antikythera Mechanism was thought to have been created between 150 and 100 BCE at first, but recent research dates its development to approximately 205 BCE. It's interesting that this technology seems to have just vanished because comparable items didn't start turning up until the 14th century. But why did the ancient Greeks permit such a significant development to be forgotten over time? Posidonius carried on the work of the Greek astronomer Hipparchus by instructing students at an astronomy academy. Posidonius invented a contraption that "in each rotation reproduces the identical motions of the Sun, the Moon and the five planets that take place in the skies every day and night," according to Cicero, one of Posidonius' students. Which remarkably resembles the Antikythera Mechanism. However, when the Mechanism was created in the second century BCE, Posidonius was not yet alive. Hipparchus was, though. Posidonius could have built an instrument based on Hipparchus' Antikythera Mechanism, which he made many years before. What about Posidonius' instrument, though? A time traveler from the future may have developed the Mechanism, or it may genuinely be a futuristic gadget that was taken back to ancient Greece and put there on purpose if it dates to the second century BCE and equivalent technology didn't start emerging until decades later. Some people think the entire thing is a hoax despite overwhelming scientific proof to the contrary. After all, it is challenging to reconcile the Antikythera mechanism's antiquity with its growth in technology. The Turk, a fictional chess-playing robot constructed in the 18th century, has been likened to the mechanism by some. But scientists easily acknowledge that The Turk is a fraud. Why would they fabricate evidence of the mechanism's reliability? What would they be attempting to conceal? Even though it is quite old, the Antikythera mechanism represented an enormous advance in technology. So how did the Greeks of antiquity come up with the concept, much alone construct it? They didn't, according to The Ancient Aliens: “Beings with advanced knowledge of astronomical bodies, mathematics and precision engineering tools created the device or gave the knowledge for its creation to someone during the first century BC. But the knowledge was not recorded or wasn't passed down to anyone else.” Therefore, aliens either provided humanity the ability to make this gadget or the knowledge to do so, but they didn't do anything to assure that we built on it or learnt from it. It seems like the aliens weren't planning ahead very well. This theory, like the extraterrestrial one, is based simply on the observation that the Antikythera mechanism seems to be too technologically sophisticated for its period. The mythical Atlantis was a highly developed metropolis that vanished into the ocean. Many people think the city genuinely exists, despite the fact that Plato only described it in a sequence of allegories. And some of those individuals believe the Antikythera mechanism proves Atlantis existed since it was too sophisticated for any known culture at the time; they believe Atlantis, not Greece, is where the mechanism originated. According to the notion of intelligent design, a higher power purposefully created many things on Earth because they are too sophisticated to have arisen by simple evolution. Because the Antikythera mechanism is so much more sophisticated than any other artifact from that age, some people think it is proof of intelligent design. If this is the case, you have to question what divine, omnipotent creature would spend time creating such a minute object for such a trivial goal. Greece's coast is home to the island of Rhodes. Greek artifacts were placed into the ship transporting the Mechanism, which was sailing for Rome. One explanation for this might be that the Antikythera mechanism was taken together with the spoils from the island of Rhodes. How come Rhodes was pillaged? following a victorious war against the Greeks, as part of Julius Caesar's triumphal procession. Could the loss of one of history's most significant and cutting-edge technical advancements be accidentally attributed to Julius Caesar? The Antikythera mechanism may have predicted the color of eclipses, which is thought to be impossible by scientists, according to new translations of texts on the device. Therefore, were the forecasts the mechanism provided only educated guesses, or did the ancient Greeks have knowledge that we do not? According to legend, an extraterrestrial species called the Annunaki (possible episode?) invaded and inhabited Earth (they were revered as gods in ancient Mesopotamia), leaving behind evidence of their presence. The Antikythera mechanism could be one of these hints. The Mechanism uses what appears to be distinct technology that was, as far as we are aware, extremely different from anything else that was built about 200 BCE. It estimates when lunar eclipses would occur, which advanced space invaders would undoubtedly know something about. An intriguing view on the process is held by Mike Edmunds from Cardiff University. The uniqueness and technological innovation of the item are frequently highlighted in reports about it. However, Edmunds speculates that the mechanism may have been in transit to a client when the ship carrying it went down. If one device was being delivered, might there possibly be others — if not on this ship, then potentially on others from Rhodes? — he asks in his essay. There may have been more of these amazing machines that have been lost to the passage of time or are still out there waiting to be found.

Is it possible to convert old coal mines into successful farms?

The rehabilitation of South Africa's closed coal mines has long been a source of contention among miners, environmental activists and affected communities. Numerous old mines were not rehabilitated at all, while many others were rehabilitated to within only the bare minimum requirements of the law, leaving the land looking restored but, ultimately, not suitable for the growing of crops, owing to the plethora of toxic chemicals and metals that remain in the soil and water. However, amid the rising unemployment rate among South Africans and soaring cost of living, much thought has been given to whether old coal mine properties can be repurposed to provide agribusiness opportunities for surrounding communities. Several organisations have been researching means and methods for remediating the land beyond basic rehabilitation to making it suitable for sustainable, long-term agricultural use – previously believed to be impossible. Although research is ongoing, different techniques have already yielded promising results. The Water Diversified mining major Glencore partnered with incubator Business for Development, Wonderfontein colliery owner Umsimbithi, socioeconomic change programme Impact Catalyst, the International Council on Mining and Metals, and the Mine Water Coordinating Body to run a winter wheat pilot programme in Mpumalanga. The province is at the centre of power generation in South Africa, providing more than 80% of the country's coal resources. After mining and quarrying – which account for nearly 30% of Mpumalanga's gross domestic product – manufacturing, power generation, tourism and agriculture are the province's other major sectors. Many of the local communities depend on mining operations as their primary economic driver – directly as a source of employment and indirectly through local development and services provided. However, as these mines close and South Africa transitions away from coal, transitioning the economy to other viable industries is of critical importance. The pilot programme aimed to investigate whether remediated mine land and mine water could offer sustainable livelihood opportunities for local communities. It was also seen as an opportunity to showcase how different industry stakeholders could work together to achieve common environment, social and governance outcomes, Business for Development Africa operations director John Cook says. The programme, which ran from April last year to January, successfully demonstrated how remediated coal-mine land and mine- affected water could be used directly in agriculture. A detailed report on the programme is expected to be released this month. The land used for the pilot was provided by the Wonderfontein colliery and included two sites next to it that are owned by the community. Winter wheat was specifically targeted because cereal company Kelloggs believed that the grain could potentially be used in the manufacture of its cereals. Cook tells Engineering News & Mining Weekly that the pilot was successful, but that it is not yet clear if it is repeatable. Further testing would be required, although plans to extend the programme include roping in a wider array of stakeholders. “What we've proven is that remediated land and mine-affected water do represent very valuable assets for agriculture, which encourages a possible rethink of the regulatory arrangements.” However, it is important to ensure that further damage to the environment is not inadvertently caused by the farming methods employed in the pilot. Moreover, it is still not yet fully understood whether the same methodology would work on other rehabilitated mine sites with different soil and water compositions, he adds. “We now need to do more and investigate the extent to which the learning can be transferred to other locations. We need to engage with regulators and government to see what changes might be necessary to the policy settings to make this available to a large number of people.” The most...

COO Jan Oberholzer said the decision to implement and sustain 4 000 MW of rotational cuts was taken after unplanned unavailability across the fleet rose to above 18 000 MW, partly as a result of a decision to ramp down some coal generator as a result of resource constraints triggered by the labour action.

The parents have offered a $20,000 reward for information about Rounds. Palmer declined to release further information about the disappearance due to the criminal investigation. But regarding the search, he said Box Elder deputies have covered 3,000 miles in their searching. Numerous law enforcement and search and rescue units have helped, such as the Box Elder County Horse Posse, the Elko County, Nevada, Sheriff's Office, Weber County Sheriff's Search and Rescue and the Utah Department of Public Safety's Aero Bureau. Palmer said anyone with information about Rounds' disappearance can call the sheriff's office at 434-723-5227, ext. 3894 or 3131. Efforts to contact Cooley were not immediately successful.

In Episode 135, Molly is joined by U.S. Coast Guard Admiral Sandy Stosz, who shares 40 years of navigating more than her fair share of firsts. In times of crisis and complexity she puts action to the words “leading with integrity.” (And for those dealing with a “bad boss,” don't miss how to handle this!) “Shy and unconfident” is how Sandy started. Parents who instilled “you are your core values” and her tomboy youth with 3 younger brothers prepared her well to hold her own and work with men. Her disarming honesty is in abundance as she's forthright about continually being “rendered humble” by not being the smartest, fastest or best looking... “very average!” Athletics and coaches were gamechangers in Sandy's limitless hard work and perseverance. “No silver platters… it was always, always hard.” She talks of not realizing she was even “breaking glass”— Title IX was just starting to support women in sport, as she was in the 3rd USGG class to have women (60% attrition). In the Coast Guard, role changes were every 2-3 years, never letting one find their stride for long: adapt, adjust, be agile were the only options. As the first woman to command an icebreaker on the Great Lakes and lead a US armed forces service academy, she shares numerous “aha” (some painful) learnings with men who didn't believe she belonged (and how women weren't exactly super supportive of one another). Resignation letter in hand, she came sooo close to giving it all up. A must hear for those who need to amp up their “competence—confidence” in the eyes of others… Sandy's mantra: “always swing the bat.” And all the “poor leadership” taught her: #1) Somehow get along w/ that leader – humble yourself to understand this boss #2) Learn what you don't want to do… This fueled her quest to be the very best leader she could be. Numerous leadership and life lessons abound in this open-hearted account of how Sandy persevered to take the burden of being the first and turn it into an opportunity of a lifetime.

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is: 5 Lessons from the book: From Strength to Strength by Arthur Brooks Today, I'm talking about my final take away from the book - the loneliness epidemic. Arthur Brooks spends the final part of the book sharing insight and wisdom about the importance of non-work priorities in our lives, and how to focus less on work and more on relationships, our physical health, and our spiritual health.  The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration has declared a “loneliness epidemic,” specifically citing the increasing phenomena of “no participation in social groups, fewer friends, and strained relationships” as the culprits. We all know about the loneliness and dramatic increases in depression and anxiety caused by the social isolation during the pandemic. But even prior to Covid in 2018,  one survey found that 46 percent of Americans felt alone, and 43 percent of Americans felt that their relationships were not meaningful. Author, Arthur Brooks states: “Numerous studies have shown that one of the great markers for happiness among people at midlife and beyond is people who can rattle off the names of a few authentic, close friends. It is not necessary that they be numerous to achieve happiness, and, in fact, people tend to get more selective about their friends as they age and reduce the number of true intimates.” We all need strong human connections to help you get on the second curve [of life] and flourish. In other words, to go from strength to strength.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

Women are exempt from the obligation of Birkat Ha'lebana. This is the ruling of the Kaf Ha'haim (Rav Yaakob Haim Sofer, Baghdad-Israel, 1870-1939), and of Hacham Bension Abba Shaul (Israel, 1923-1998), in his work Or Le'sion (vol. 3, 4:1).A number of sources emphasize the special importance of reciting Birkat Ha'lebana, and of doing so specifically on Mosa'eh Shabbat. It is written in the work Maggid Mesharim that one who recites Birkat Ha'lebana on Mosa'eh Shabbat is blessed with success. Numerous stories are told of Sadikim who expended great efforts to recite Birkat Ha'lebana. Rabbi Yisrael Abuhasera (the Baba Sali, 1889-1984) was once in Europe and the moon was not visible due to cloudiness as the final time for reciting Birkat Ha'lebana was approaching. He went on a plane, incurring considerable expense, in order to fly to a different location where the weather was fair, so he could recite Birkat Ha'lebana. And it is told that he would often stay up well past midnight waiting for the clouds to dissipate so he could fulfill this Misva. On one occasion, he took a stick and waved it toward the sky, and the clouds moved away so the moon would be exposed and he could recite the Beracha.It is mentioned in a number of books that one who recites Birkat Ha'lebana does not have to worry about leaving this world that entire month. This is brought down both by the Kaf Ha'haim Sofer and by Rav Haim Palachi (Turkey, 1788-1869), in his Kaf Ha'haim (35:3). The Elya Rabba (Rabbi Eliyahu Shapiro of Prague, 1660-1712) adds that a person who recites Birkat Ha'lebana does not even have to fear a decree of death being issued against him. It is told that a certain pious Jew was once approached by non-Jews who told him they were going to kill him. He asked as his last wish for a chance to recite Birkat Ha'lebana, and when he fulfilled this Misva, the men ran away. Rav Haim Palachi mentions that this protection is earned specifically if one recites Birkat Ha'lebana with Kavana (concentration).The Sefer Ha'berit raises the question of how to reconcile this tradition with empirical evidence. After all, there are Sadikim who die, and it is difficult to imagine that they all neglected to properly recite Birkat Ha'lebana the month they died. He suggests that we need to add two words to the text of the Kaf Ha'haim where this tradition is recorded, namely, "Bi'ydeh Adam" – "by people." Meaning, one who properly performs this Misva is guaranteed protection from being killed by people, but when a person's time to leave this world comes, he will be taken despite performing this Misva. Other sources say that performing this Misva protects one from "Mita Meshuna" – an unusual death, but not from death of natural causes.Of course, it is imperative to fulfill the Misva of Birkat Ha'lebana for the simple reason that it is a Misva. But additionally, as we have seen, the merit of this Misva offers special protection, and thus it assumes particular importance. As such, one should seize the first opportunity to perform this Misva, without delaying the recitation. This is especially important for Sepharadim, as we do not recite the Beracha before the 7th of the month, and thus have a small window – about one week – in which to perform the Misva. (Ashkenazim allow reciting the Beracha already from the 3rd of the month, and thus have close to two weeks.) And, as we know, here in North America there can be cloud-cover for an entire week. In light of all this, one should make a point to recite Birkat Ha'lebana at the first available opportunity, and not delay it at all, in order to ensure to reap the great benefits offered by this very special Misva.

Mention of their names is optional in our present Eucharistic Prayer I. Marcellinus was a priest and Peter was an exorcist, that is, someone authorized by the Church to deal with cases of demonic possession. They were beheaded during the persecution of Emperor Diocletian. Pope Damasus wrote an epitaph apparently based on the report of their executioner, and Constantine erected a basilica over the crypt in which they were buried in Rome. Numerous legends sprang from an early account of their death. Reflection Why are these men included in our Eucharistic prayer, and given their own feast day, in spite of the fact that almost nothing is known about them? Probably because the Church respects its collective memory. They once sent an impulse of encouragement through the whole Church. They made the ultimate step of faith.

What is a sweet potato? Even though sweet potatoes originated from Central and South America (the same as potatoes), they are not related to potatoes. Sweet potatoes belong to the bindweed or morning glory family. Let's do a deep dive into all things about how to grow sweet potatoes. How To Grow Sweet Potatoes - Fun Facts This tropical crop needs at least four months of warm weather and warm soil, but they are drought- and heat-tolerant and have few pests or diseases. Compare a sweet potato vine's foliage and flowers to those of morning glory and you'll see the family resemblance. Sweet potatoes are not yams, which are related to grasses and lilies. They're also not related to regular white potatoes, which belong to the nightshade family, versus the morning glory family. As mentioned above, potatoes' edible portion is a true tuber, while sweet potatoes produce tuberous roots.They were used in folk remedies to treat asthma, night blindness, and diarrhea. Recommended Varieties The fastest-growing sweet potato varieties have orange flesh, but you might also consider varieties with white, yellow, or even purple flesh. Note that orange-flesh varieties cook up moist; white and yellow sweet potatoes become creamy; purple sweets are dry and starchy. ‘Beauregard' (90 days) originally comes from Louisiana but grows well in the north, too. It has dark red roots, and dark orange flesh, and stores well.‘Bush Porto Rico' (110 days) is good for small gardens and for baking.‘Centennial' (100 days) is the leading variety in the U.S. It is carrot-colored and has a good storage life. It is also a good producer for northern growers.‘Georgia Jet' (90 days); Red skin covers moist, deep orange flesh. Extremely fast-growing type; good for the North.Jewel' (aka ‘Yellow Jewel')(120 days) has copper-colored skin and orange flesh; disease-resistant; stores well.‘Stokes' (120 days) offers vibrant purple color and is full of extra health benefits; cooks well in savory dishes and mashes.‘Vardaman' (110 days) is a bush type and good for small gardens; it has unique blue/purple foliage, golden skin, and reddish-orange flesh; stores well.‘White Yam' (100 days); also called ‘White Triumph'. White skin covers dry white flesh. One of the oldest sweet potato varieties. Has compact vines. When To Plant Plant slips outdoors 3 to 4 weeks after your last spring frost or once the soil has warmed to at least 65°F (18°C). Nighttime temperatures should be at least 55°F (13°C). The trick is to plant them early enough for them to have time to mature fully, but not so early that they get killed by a late spring frost.Be sure to protect young sweet potatoes from any late frosts or cool nights (lower than 55°F/13°C), as they are very tender. Cover them with plastic milk jugs or use row covers, removing the covers during the day.If you ordered slips from a mail-order source, unpack them right away. Stick the roots in water for a day or so and they'll perk up. Plant them as soon as conditions are right How To Plant Plant the slips on a warm, overcast day, when the soil temperature has reached 60°F (15°C).Break off the lower leaves, leaving only the top ones.Set the slips deep enough to cover the roots and the stem up to the leaves. Sweet potatoes will form on the nodes.Water with a high-phosphorus liquid fertilizer, then water generously for 7 to 10 days to make sure that the plants root well. Common Pest and Diseases Flea beetles: Numerous tiny holes in leaves. Use row covers; mulch heavily; add native plants to invite beneficial insectsFusarium wilt: Yellow/puckered leaves; older leaves drop; wilting vines; plants eventually die; stems under-/near ground may appear slightly blue; stem cross-section reveals brown/purple/black discoloration, especially near ground      Destroy infected plants; choose certified, disease-free slips and resistant varieties; rotate cropsSweet potato scurf: Skin-deep,

“OUT, AM I?“On this week's episode, we continue talking about Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man film, released in 2002. In the first episode we focused on the story and on the style, how Sam Raimi went about filming the web swinger in his first Hollywood outing. Now, we go back to the very beginning of Spider-Man, back to when he was created in 1962. We go over his creation, and how he was result of a collaboration between Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. We talk about his first comic book appearance in Marvel Comic's Amazing Fantasy No.15 which led to his own series The Amazing Spider-Man. From there we talk about the various forms that Spider-Man took, from a 1977 television show on CBS to a Japanese revisioning of the character. With Spider-Man's popular continuing to grow, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood planned to capitalize on his popularity in 1985. But that would take multiple decades, with multiple production companies vying for the rights to the character, and everyone suing and countersuing in order to have a chance at making his big screen debut. Numerous directors' names were thrown around, but ultimately Raimi got the job. We talk about all of that, and why we think he was the best one!Afterwards, we go into the actually production, what went into the casting of the film, the hurdles Sam had to go through during that, the choice in trying to ground the film's sillier ideas so they could mesh well with the real life setting of New York, including the Green Goblin's costume and the use of the organic web shooters. We talk about how this film could have been rated R for some of the depictions of violence, and what the team did to avoid that. We cover the film's marketing, and the ultimate U-turn the marketing team had to do in order to remove all images of the Twin Towers after the events of September 11th, 2001, and how real-life events have an effect of audiences interpretation of media, regardless of whether or not it chose to make a statement.Lastly, we briefly talk about the newest Marvel film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness since it's Sam Raimi's return to directing after a 9 year hiatus. We talk about the good, the bad, and the weird things we saw in the film and in a spoiler free discussion. So sit back and enjoy our final episode on the original Spider-Man film!Music is from Triune Digital and audio clips pulled from movies we will be reviewing in other episodes.Artwork by @jannelle_o

It's Tuesday 10th May, it's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. FORD F-150 LIGHTNINGS SEEN STOCKPILED AT DEARBORN TEST TRACK - Production of the Ford F-150 Lightning began back on April 26, but instead of all of those electric trucks ending up in the hands of buyers, it seems as though a good chunk of the EV pickups are "starting to pile up the company test track in Dearborn, MI," according to our spy photographers who are on the scene. - Numerous convoys of F-150 Lightning trucks have been seen coming from the direction of Ford's Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, and entering a side entrance at Ford's Dearborn test track. - Could the Lightning be another victim of the semiconductor shortage? Ford has not said anything about this so far, or announced any possible reasons why Lightnings would not reach owners in time, but why else would it be stockpiling them like that? - It may not necessarily be a lack of chips - it could be another supply chain-related issue that is keeping Ford from shipping these off. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/584672/ford-f150-lightning-stockpile-supply-constraints/ VW CEO THINKS THEY CAN SELL MORE ELECTRIC CARS THAN TESLA BY 2025 - Herbert Diess, the CEO of the Volkswagen Group, believes that the German automaker can sell more electric cars than Tesla by 2025. Is that goal even possible? - At the FT Future of the Car 2022 conference today, Diess said that VW has for goal to beat Tesla to the become the top EV automaker by 2025 – though he admitted that it will be difficult (via Reuters): - “It will be a tight race but we won't give up on it. I have to say we didn't expect our main U.S. competitor to be so fast and well-prepared.” - By 2025, Tesla will likely have a production capacity of more than four million electric cars per year. I'd be surprised if VW can jump from 400,000 to four million units in just three years. - With Tesla seemingly being willing to give up the lower-end of the market, there's an opportunity for VW to come in and deliver a lot of volume in the large market of vehicles that start under $30,000. Original Source : https://electrek.co/2022/05/09/vw-ceo-sell-more-electric-cars-than-tesla-2025/ Post | LinkedIn - Spain will be Volkswagen's second European electric vehicle hub after Germany! Therefore Volkswagen Group is investing 7 billion euro in Spain, the overall investment of 10 billion euro including 62 companies in the Spanish #PERTE program - the biggest industrial investment Spain has ever received. - For Volkswagen and SEAT,SA this means: a new Gigafactory in Sagunto close to Valencia supplied by renewable energy, and the electrification of our plants in Martorell and Pamplona. From 2025 onwards several small electric cars of Volkswagen,  CUPRA  and ŠKODA AUTO a.s.  will be manufactured in Spain. - To be very clear: CUPRA is not replacing SEAT, but helping it to become much more profitable. - In times of limited supply of semiconductors for sure we prioritize producing the higher margin CUPRAS over some SEAT entry models. Also for electrifying we prioritize the higher margin CUPRA models or are even launching new models solely under this brand - makes economically a lot of sense. Also our dealers are benefitting from this setup. - So, as SKODA is working well beyond its own brand interest for the group, i.e. designing the new Passat, managing India, taking over platform responsibilities, ….. I am really looking forward for more group contribution from the SEAT team.

Predictably coined the E-Transit Custom, Ford has released limited details and several images of the upcoming EV, which like its gas-burning counterpart isn't expected to be sold in America. - Its face is more assertive than the bug-eyed design worn by its internal-combustion stablemate. The electrified version also has chiseled lines around its wheel arches and across its flanks. Just below the passenger-side headlight is a charging port, but Ford hasn't revealed the van's battery capacity or powertrain specs. - E-Transit Custom is expected to have a driving range of around 263 miles on a single charge—we assume this is on the WLTP standard. - E-Transit Custom will start production in the second half of 2023 at its Otosan factory in Turkey. - As with the full-size Ford E-Transit that's sold in the U.S., the smaller Custom model will have Pro Power Onboard, which is a built-in AC power source that's useful at work sites or wherever electricity is needed.

Competing on Thought Leadership: How Great B2B Companies Turn Expertise Into Revenue by Robert Buday About the Book: “Thought leadership” is now a core part of the business lexicon. Numerous corporate websites devote whole sections to it. Entire conferences are built around it (TED and the World Economic Forum as the most exclusive ones). It's at the center of sophisticated, high-ticket PR campaigns. Thousands of people are making careers out of it. And companies from Fidelity Investments, Adobe and Cigna to PwC, Accenture and Spotify have people in charge of it. Interest in the field of thought leadership is white-hot -- just like the buzz created by illustrious thought leaders when they bring groundbreaking ideas to market. So it's about time the topic of thought leadership itself got a substantive treatment. In Competing on Thought Leadership, Robert Buday boldly delivers it. He defines thought leadership concretely: as the acclaim that a firm or a person earns for developing, marketing, and delivering superior expertise in solving complex customer problems. And he defines it broadly -- as a business strategy, not just a marketing strategy. Buday also brings to bear his client work and research since the 1980s in helping companies and individuals inside them become known worldwide as leading experts in their field, which in turn has increased their revenue and profit multifold. This book focuses on how businesses that sell services and products to other businesses can thrive on thought leadership. It takes the lessons learned at some of the best firms in the world at selling expertise – consulting, accounting, law, financial services, and technology firms – and makes them practical for every B2B firm. Yet the principles of Competing on Thought Leadership apply to all organizations – for-profit and nonprofit alike -- that must demonstrate superior expertise in solving complex problems. Consumer companies, charitable foundations, and other organizations, too, can benefit greatly from adopting these best practices in thought leadership. About the Author: Since the late 1980s, Robert Buday has been regarded as a pioneer in the theory and practice of thought leadership — well before the concept became widely adopted and loosely interpreted. He and his team at his firm, Buday Thought Leadership Partners LLC, collectively bring decades of experience in helping business-to-business companies become widely recognized and richly rewarded for their expertise. His two firms, Bloom Group and Buday TLP  have provided thought leadership strategy, content development,   and marketing services to such companies as Deloitte, Accenture, EY, Microsoft, CSC, and a range of smaller B2B firms. He has helped clients develop and publish dozens of opinion articles in the world's most prestigious business and management publications including Harvard Business Review, Forbes, MIT Sloan Management Review, Financial Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and others. He also has helped several clients conceptualize, develop and publish best-selling books. And, interesting fact – it took him 22 years to get to his first date with his wife!
