David Dollar: The World Bank in China
China's main challenge is environmental management. David Dollar: Well the primary objective of the World Bank is to help developing countries grow and develop, and our main objective is to help countries reduce poverty. So the World Bank has a long history of working in China on different types of projects that have helped reduce poverty. But personally I interpret this mandate quite broadly. I moved to China three years ago for this assignment, and I've come to think that the key challenge that China faces is really environmental management, natural resource scarcity, water, energy, these key resource issues. So I think that the impress of poverty reduction that China has achieved is not going to be sustainable unless China really comes to grip with these environmental challenges. So on a practical level, I've tried to shift our World Bank Program to support a lot of different environmental activities in China, in the water sector, and developing new energy sources. For example, we financed the first big wind power station in China, and demonstrated that this is economically viable. We financed different types of clean energy technologies. So I guess I see what I'm doing as working with Chinese partners to help them address some of their key challenges, and that goes beyond environment; but a lot of our work now is focused on the environmental area.

UNIDO - The Accelerated Agribusiness and Agro-industries Development Initiative (3ADI)
The initiative, called the 3ADI for "Accelerated Agribusiness and Agro-Industries Development Initiative" was launched in August 2010 in response to a request from the Commission of the African Union; The 3ADI partners are working on the ground in least developed countries to promote the expansion of local and international value chains that benefit the small producers and entrepreneurs, who create jobs and income, and who gradually transform the rural world to turn it into an attractive career proposition to the eyes of the youth in search of a better future. It is no longer a subsistence occupation carried out from generation to generation as a matter of tradition: it is a complex business with its technological, scientific, human resource, marketing, and accounting demands. It is predicated on driving an alignment of individual actions and priorities between public authorities responsible for emitting signals that are clear, consistent and observable by all; those responsible for transport, energy and communication infrastructure; the rural world, its skills and organization; the holders of scientific, technological and financial resources, domestic and foreign; the inputs, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and advisory services providers; access to markets with its increasing requirements of quality, safety, standardization and traceability. The resources exist, the will is evident, especially at the core part of the value chain that is the processing segment; the question is to catalyze their convergence in a situation that provides attractive returns to all stakeholders, while addressing at the same time the most necessary of the Millennium Development Goals, reducing poverty and hunger worldwide. The 3ADI is a teamwork initiative of UNIDO, FAO and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) for more information visit www.3adi.org
Cravings for Cigarettes and Nicotine Part 2 of 2: Managing Your Cravings and the Healing Process..
Most smokers (and Ex Smokers) have experienced feelings of being hopelessly powerless, against the strength of their nicotine addiction. Cravings are an incredibly powerful, physiological symptom of addiction, that invoke a pattern of continual relapse and are ultimately the reason why over a hundred million lives were lost last century, to the tobacco epidemic. In this clip, I talk about how smokers wanting to quit, needn't feel powerless or hopeless, and explain why I think, that with the aid of knowledge, awareness and your ability to maintain control over your environment, you can better manage and influence the outcome of your heal.

New Belgium Brewing Company
In this episode of Cheap Family Travel (http://www.cheapfamilytraveltips.com), Nick, Regan, Maggie, and Kate visited Fort Collins, Colorado, and the town's claim to fame -- the New Belgium Brewing Company, home of Fat Tire Amber Ale and many other New Belgium beers. We got a free New Belgium Brewery Tour that included a visit to the tasting room (for the adults) and a trip down the employee slide (everyone tried that!). The employees were super friendly and shared some behind-the-scenes stories with us about the history of New Belgium beer and how the company's founder started making beer in a spare room and how it grew to become one of the largest microbrews in the United States. It was easy to see why outside magazine named the New Belgium Brewing Co the 13th best place to work in the US. While New Belgium is the most famous Fort Collins brewery, there are several other brewery companies in town, too, and it was fun and cheap visit for the whole family.

Brain Explains EPR's Re-branding Effort
http://www.reit.com David Brain, president and CEO of EPR Properties (NYSE: EPR), joined REIT.com for a video interview at REITWorld 2012: NAREIT's Annual Convention at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. EPR Properties, which is headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., is a specialty REIT that currently invests in three primary segments: entertainment, recreation and education. The company has $3.1 billion in total investments and more than 250 tenants. Previously known as Entertainment Properties Trust, the company re-branded this month. Brain spoke with REIT.com about the decision to re-brand. Brain said the company was prompted to change its name and re-brand based on the feeling that it had outgrown the Entertainment Properties Trust name, which reflected the firm's roots. "We've developed the company beyond just a particularly cinema and limited entertainment focus, spanning now into the education and recreation areas in which we're investing. It was time to expand the identity of the company to conform with the portfolio we're developing," Brain said. "It has been brewing over the last couple of years, and it really finally came to a head and we decided it would be a good time to get it done, because we continue to have ambitions to expand the platform of the company." Brain said EPR Properties is planning on approximately $300 million in acquisitions in 2013, roughly in line with 2012. He said the company doesn't plan to focus on any on particular category within its portfolio. Brain has a background in investment banking. He discussed how that has affected his leadership of EPR. "These have been extraordinary times. We're in a tremendously low interest-rate environment just comparing it back to my old days," Brain said. "I think the great thing about the company is really the great balance sheet that we have, and the capital markets are really wide open. I would tell you most of my clientele back in my investment banking days were dealing with more limitations than EPR Properties has today." By Allen Kenney

More Nature Reserve Cleared 4 Housing in NSW Tweed Shire.m4v
In an effort to get building happening again in NSW, the New Tweed Coast continues clearing valuable lands where bird and native fauna abound. Town planning and environment take a back seat to development in a shire where the council has been sacked in the last 10 years, only to see the same interest groups re emerge developing crown lands, burning forests and starting building to feather their own nests. Where is the accountability of politicians and councils who ruin areas, pollute, mine and destroy water resources for the generations to come? Once they are out of office they leave a legacy of destruction. To keep the bastards honest, they should be judged like war criminals, and brought to justice for their greed, and malpractices and poor environmental management. In an effort to gain some of the Gold Coasts building boom there has been a big land sell off in Tweed Shire. Miramar is one such place. No new infrastructure, just more houses on existing roads already at their limit and town planners ignored.

Michael Meyer: Mars Exploration Driven by Curiosity
Google Tech Talk December 6, 2012 (expand for more info) Presented by Dr. Michael A. Meyer. ABSTRACT The possibility of life on Mars has become a scientific issue of profound importance, a topic of public interest, and a question that research and space exploration can address. Although Viking landings on Mars in 1976 found a cold and dry planet, our concepts of the limits to life and our expectation of the habitability of Mars have continued to expand. The modern era of Mars exploration has transformed our imagined static lifeless desert planet to a dynamic planet, one that has the potential for life in the past and possibly even the present. Our exploration endeavors have culminated with the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) landing on August 6, 2012. This mission is the first roving analytical laboratory and considered the first astrobiology mission to Mars since Viking. The rover has ten instruments, including environmental sensors and a laboratory capable of determining elemental composition, mineralogy, and organic content of surface and near-surface samples. This mission has begun to explore Gale Crater, and its 5 km high central peak, Mount Sharp, whose sediments will provide snapshots of environmental conditions of Mars as it transitioned from its earlier warmer and wetter periods through to a planet whose surface has became cold, dry, and acidic. Hopefully results from the mission will help us determine if that area was ever able to support microbial life and assess its potential for preservation of biosignatures. Already, the science team has discovered an ancient riverbed and the heavy-isotopic ratios of a remnant thicker atmosphere. This mission is the most complex, sophisticated robotic planetary mission ever attempted and a major step in Mars exploration. Speaker Info: Dr. Michael A. Meyer Lead Scientist for the Mars Exploration Program NASA Headquarters Michael Meyer is a Senior Scientist at NASA Headquarters in the Science Mission Directorate. He is the Lead Scientist for NASA's Mars Exploration Program, responsible for the science content of current and future Mars missions, and Program Scientist for the Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity mission. During this period, Dr. Meyer has also served as the science liaison for the Review of Human Spaceflight Plans Committee (Seeking a Human Spaceflight Program Worthy of a Great Nation).
