GRASSROOT NIGERIA CONTENT DEVELOPMENT AWARENESS SUMMIT 2013
 
00:45
About Grassroot Nigeria Content Development Awareness Summit. After 50 years since the exploitation of hydrocarbon started in Nigeria, the percentage of local content in the oil & gas industry is only 5-15%. Analysing the average amount spent annually in the petroleum industry, which averages about US $8Billion, only about 5% is retained in Nigeria. Signed into Law on April 22, 2010 by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act is designed not only to increase indigenous participation in the Nigerian oil and gas industry but also act as a spring board to encourage technology transfer as well as drive government's socio-economic development agenda. The gains of this law could be summarized as follows: 1. Economic growth 2. More employment of locals 3. Value creation in the country 4. Local Participation/ Investment 5. Induced expenditure in the local economy 6. Enhanced human capacity 7. Technology transfer Three years after passage, a comprehensive reappraisal of impact show very low success rate the legislation had increased the Nigerian content in the area of manufacturing of equipment used in the industry to about 7%. But the average performance in the implementation of the Act is about 30%. This FREE summit which is being organised by TOTAL, Shell, AGIP, Port Harcourt Chamber of Commerce, Industry Mines & Agriculture (PHACCIMA), CNS Marine Nigeria Limited, Forum of South South Chamber of Commerce, Industry Mines & Agriculture (FOSSCCIMA), and Price Water House Coopers International (PWC), is geared towards increasing awareness and impacting knowledge of this act to grassroot business people who cannot the cost of the high profile Nigeria Content Development conferences organised in the past. In our opinion, a better understanding of the act will increase participation, which will also improve the average performance in the implementation of the NCD act.

Peru: Towards a Green Path - Three Stories of Sustainable Development | Conservation International
 
23:56
http://www.conservation.org "When I was a kid, bulldozers smashing through forests were a symbol of progress. For me, development is more about growing trees." Antonio Brack, Peru's former Minister of the Environment, describes three CI projects that prove that green growth is a viable economic strategy. 1. A Tale of Two Towns Two nearby towns in Madre de Dios provide an illustration of different development paths. One town chose to invest in ecotourism, and today is a thriving, green community with healthy families who live and work in the industry. The other is a hotbed of illegal mining, and the resulting wasteland contributes to disease and poverty. Although mining can result in quick riches, the lasting prosperity comes from the green path. Start video with this story: http://youtu.be/J7Clmlbvl04?t=2m7s 2. Certified to Make Money Sustainable harvesting from forests makes environmental and economic sense. Export of organic-certified agricultural products like brazil nuts provides livelihoods to farming families in Madre de Dios without destroying the forest. Similiarly, Forest Stewardship Council certified sustainable wood is in demand for many products from construction to guitars. Although obtaining the certification is expensive and difficult, it is a good investment for the loggers and the forest. Start video with this story: http://youtu.be/J7Clmlbvl04?t=8m8s 3. The Giant Utility Rainforests naturally recycle air, clean water, pollinate crops, and regulate climate. Demand for these services is rising, and providing them in a deforested area increasingly difficult. Carbon offsets can help protect standing forests for the benefit of local communities. The Walt Disney Company has committed to protecting forests in the Alto Mayo region to offset their carbon, in addition to reducing their total emissions.

Maisha A New Life Outside the Mines
 
28:07
What happens when hundreds of children from the DRC drop their tools and abandon the mines for a new life? They go to school, start businesses and stop dying at a young age. A rare and timely look at the dangers of DR Congo's small-scale mining sector that powers our digital age, this film takes the viewer to a place few have ventured before: inside the copper and cobalt mines in Kolwezi, southern DRC. This film follows a grass-roots initiative that has generated much conversation -- from the streets of Kolwezi to the halls of the United Nations HQ in New York -- on how the Congolese can break the cycle of poverty, abuse and exploitation inflicted on it by multinational mining companies to build a sustainable development model that's powered by the country's most potent resource: its people. This Good Shepherd project was featured prominently in a January, 2016 Amnesty International report on the international cobalt trade, and the dangers to children: https://goo.gl/8oZtKw Film Credits: Written and Filmed by Luca Paradiso, Bernhard Warner Giampaolo Bisegna Narrated by Bernhard Warner Edited by Giampaolo Bisegna Luca Paradiso Executive Producer Cristina Duranti for the Good Shepherd International Foundation http://www.maishafilm.com

FSRN Gold Mining in Haiti Exposes Corruption
 
04:07
As delegates and activists from around the world gather this week in Brazil for the RIO+20 conference on sustainable development, they'll be discussing a broad range of issues, including food security, urban growth, jobs and disaster response. Advocates are also drawing attention to the corporate influence at the UN-backed conference and calling for an alternative to extractive industries, such as mining. According to a draft text of the RIO+20 resolution obtained and published by the Guardian today, delegates will include mining as a way to alleviate poverty and help countries to meet development goals. The text also calls for strong government oversight of mining. Mining plays a big role in many developing countries, including Haiti. As the country continues to recover from the devastating earthquake of 2010 and pervasive government corruption, foreign companies are rushing in to mine for gold. According to a ten-month investigation by local reporters and students with Haiti Grassroots Watch, one third of the land in northern Haiti is under exploration, research or extraction by foreign companies and some residents are worried about environmental destruction. One of those residents is Elie Florestan from Grand Bois. "I think a mine might cause lots of problems for us. They say the mine would use our river. They say our water might become polluted. And that many families will be displaced." Two of the foreign companies most aggressively pushing for mining are Eurasian Minerals, based in Canada, and Newmont, based in the US. According to Haiti Grassroots Watch, two Haitian ministers recently signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" with Newmont and Eurasian that says the companies can begin drilling at one of their sites, a violation of Haitian law, which states no drilling can occur without a mining convention. The mining companies have promised to provide much-needed jobs in the area and some residents expressed support for the projects. Anthony Silvestre, a resident of Morne Bossa said some of the land in his area was rich with the mineral. "We feel very strongly about something: we like foreigners a lot. When foreigners come and work with us we're proud and it's beautiful. If they make a mine at Morne Bossa it would be as if God himself came down from heaven." But communities in nearby Dominican Republic are already confronting the costs of mining. The Canadian companies Barrick and Goldcorp are teaming up to develop an open pit mine. Barrick has already been forced to clean up a river polluted with sulphuric acid from a previous government-backed project in the area. Some residents described being displaced from their land for the new mine. "They moved us to this neighbohood, with nothing, no jobs no land. We're farmers! But we have nowhere to plant except the yard." In Haiti, residents and community journalists are organizing to demand more transparency in the process. But the pace is picking up. One of the mining firms, Eurasian Minerals, has collected 44,000 samples and Newmont is considering at least five mine sites. The government's role has also been called into question. A former Minister of the Economy and Finances is now a paid consultant for Newmont and residents have struggled to get information about the projects. Arnolt Jean is a farmer in Lakwev. He calls the government irresponsible. "Yes, the country is poor. But what's underground could make us rich. If the government did what it was supposed to do, and exploit the minerals that are underground, the country would not be poor, but since what's underground stays underground, rich people figure out how to exploit the minerals, so they can become richer. Those who live on top of the ground stay poor. Those who exploit what's underground get even richer." Despite millions of dollars of aid money pouring into Haiti, the government still lacks resources to adequately monitor mining or oversee future projects.

8 Surprising Reasons To Use Hydrogen Peroxide in Your Garden
 
03:24
Hydrogen peroxide ranks up there with baking soda and vinegar as one of the best multi-purpose products to have stocked in your cupboards. Typically used to sanitize injuries, hydrogen peroxide can also be used somewhere quite unexpected: the garden. While not strictly an organic solution, hydrogen peroxide is safe for use in any type of garden including vegetables, plus it's easy on the budget. Here Are 8 benefits of using Hydrogen peroxide in your garden 1.Peroxide help seeds grow faster You can speed up the growth of seeds by soaking them in a weak solution of water and peroxide for a few minutes before rinsing and planting. 2.Peroxide works as a rooting agent The key to a strong, healthy plant is a good base, the roots. Give your roots a boost by dosing them with a little bit of peroxide. This can also help revive limp leaves. Spray a peroxide/water solution into the soil around the plant. 3.Peroxide keeps bugs away Skip expensive chemicals at the store and spritz your plants with 1% hydrogen peroxide to keep bugs at bay. 4.Peroxide can prevent infections on cut plants and trees Treat infections on plant leaves or roots with a spray of water and peroxide to disinfect the area and prevent the disease from spreading. You'll want to douse the area with a lot of the water/peroxide solution for the best results. 5.Peroxide helps aerate the soil Plants of all kinds need three basic things to survive: food, water and air. If your soil is too compact that means the roots can't get enough circulation to properly grow. Plus, soil that's too dense is a breeding ground for disease. Apply 2 parts water to 1-part peroxide to the roots of your plant to help aerate the soil around it. 6.Treat your water with hydrogen peroxide Make the water you feed your plants a little healthier, by adding a bit of peroxide with the water in your watering can before applying to your plants and lawn. The peroxide removes chemicals and pesticides from tap water, making it healthier for your plants. 7.Peroxide helps heal sick plants In particular, a peroxide is a great option for treating root rot. If your soil is too compact, root rot can develop. Use 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with water (one-part peroxide to two parts water) and pour it over the infected roots of your plant. And 8.Use peroxide to disinfect garden tools Stop the spread of disease in your plants and garden by sanitizing your tools. This is especially true after finding and treating a fungus. Jut soak your tools in 1 gallon of water and 2 cups of peroxide. Have you ever used hydrogen peroxide in your garden? let us know in the comments below!

Nearly 815 million Indians are eligible to vote and results will be issued in May. One of India's most famous authors — and one of its fiercest critics — Roy is out with a new book, "Capitalism: A Ghost Story," which dives into India's transforming political landscape and makes the case that globalized capitalism has intensified the wealth divide, racism, and environmental degradation. "This new election is going to be [about] who the corporates choose," Roy says, "[about] who is not going to blink about deploying the Indian army against the poorest people in this country, and pushing them out to give over those lands, those rivers, those mountains, to the major mining corporations." Watch and share the full interview uninterrupted: http://www.democracynow.org/2014/4/9/is_india_on_a_totalitarian_path Roy won the Booker Prize in 1997 for her novel, "The God of Small Things."

Embassy Media conducted an Interview with Mr. Habteab Tsege , Head of Mining Engineering Department, Mai Nefhi College, 15th July 2017 in Vienna Austria. Mr. Habteab Tsege, stated that the inscription of Asmara city onto the UNESCO World Heritage list is a symbol of pride and achievement for the Eritrean people and shoulders the responsibility to maintain its status. He said, Asmara, the capital city of Eritrea, is a unique and distinct social environment of modernist architectural design realized in an African highland setting - known for its well-preserved buildings of modernist architectural designs, Asmara is the first World Heritage Site to be recognised in Eritrea. Mr Habteab further explain, Africa’s last, lost, great civilization, The Land of Punt, has been proven to be located in Eritrea. Using laboratory analysis of Baboon mummies from Punt found in ancient burials in Egypt scientists have conclusively established that the nearest relatives to the Punt baboons are found in Eritrea on the Red Sea. The closest relatives were found in the hills behind the modern port city of Massawa which lies at the mouth of Zula Bay behind which can be found the ruins of the ancient city empire of Adulis. Mr. Habteab Tsege called on participants to work for preserving the strong values of the People of Eritrea. He concluded that “Punt is a sort of circumscribed region that includes and all of Eritrea.

Issues of natural resource governance are invariably at the centre of development and human rights debates as the extractive sector represents a growing part of Latin American economies. In Colombia, the government has identified the mining and energy sector as a key component of its current National Development Plan and one of the 'backbones of the Colombian economy'. What changes can be made to take into account the voices of local indigenous, afro-Colombian and campesino communities? What are the challenges for companies investing in countries with poor human rights records and how are they meeting them? How is human rights due diligence seen from a Southern perspective? What difference could the UN Guiding Principles make and what concrete actions should governments be taking to improve the mining industry's environmental and social performance? Tackling these questions will be experts from a range of disciplines and key public bodies, including scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers, as well as representatives from the legal sector and mining industry. We are pleased to welcome indigenous and campesino community leaders from Colombia, including Embera and Awá indigenous peoples, to share the impact mining is having on their communities.

Subsided Ground...Fallen Futures (Part 1 of 2)
 
08:03
This short documentary brings the enormously destructive process of longwall mining up from the depths of the vast Pittsburgh Coal Seam and into public view for the first time. Under hundreds of square miles of Pennsylvania's Greene and Washington Counties longwall mining leaves the earth's surface unsupported. Subsidence damage to structures - like homes, farms, and roads - is inevitable. Longwall mining also damages entire watersheds, depriving the land and its occupants of springs, streams, ponds and wells, creating an environmental disaster of local and national importance. This 15-minute documentary portrays the experience of two families as they struggle to cope with extensive longwall subsidence damage to their historic homesteads. Written and directed by Emmy Award winning journalist Terri Taylor. For more information or to request screening copies, please contact: Terri Taylor, 412-242-7995 or [email protected]

SDF Has Killed Democracy in Sikkim |Bhaichung Bhutia|Hamro Sikkim|Vice President|
 
05:55
The youngest party in the history of Sikkim politics, Hamro Sikkim, which has recently stirred up the politics in the state, organized a public meeting in Rongli under the Chujachen constituency. The meeting saw the presence of top party leaders, Vice Presidents, Bhaichung Bhutia, RB Subba, KN Upreti, Biraj Adhikari and party representatives from around the state along with local public. Addressing the public, Bhaichung accused the ruling government to have been in power only in the assistance of lies and the inability of the government to put forward the demands of the state in the centre. He blamed the SDF to have killed democracy reiterating his previous allegation of introducing party politics in the Panchayat Elections. SDF has claimed to have worked at the grass root level but NITI Aayog having termed East District as a backward district is a dark spot on Sikkim. Veteran politician RB Subba assured the public of the agenda of Hamro Sikkim to be holistic development of the state and eliminate corruption from the roots. He termed the Chief Minister to be partial towards certain sections and some parts of the society being left out in equal rights. Other party leaders also voiced their opinion in the meeting where the constituency level party office was also inaugurated.

Senator David Tomassoni invites committee to tour a frac sand mine
 
00:45
While the Minnesota House Mining and Outdoor Recreation Policy Committee will be hearing only from frac sand industry and agency representatives next week, and none of the grassroots citizen groups concerned with mining, Chisholm state senator is organizing a field trip for the Environment, Economic Development and Agriculture Budget Division Committee to a Uniminn silica sand mine "near Mankato" (there are two in Le Sueur County, one close to Kasota and another at Ottawa). Bluestem hopes that this excursion will be open to the press (and perhaps the public) in accordance to Minnesota's open meeting law. We also hope that the press does due diligence on the history of the mine, including the full history of the lawsuit which lead to the creation of the nearby Kasota Prairie preserve, as well as examining how the Uniminn mines on the middle Minnesota might be working in an area that's geologically different from Southeastern Minnesota--as well as using some critical thinking about whether one mine is representative of the entire industry.

Stephanie Roth: 2005 Goldman Prize winner, Romania
 
04:57
A former editor at the London-based magazine, The Ecologist, Stephanie Roth has been the driving force behind an international campaign to stop construction of Europe's largest open cast gold mine, slated to be built in Romania. Roth joined the anti-mining campaign after she was involved in a successful grassroots movement to stop development of a so-called "Dracula Theme Park" in Transylvania, a project that would have destroyed an ancient oak forest reserve next to a medieval citadel. The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize for grassroots environmentalists. Each of the winners, chosen from the planet's six inhabited continental regions, demonstrate exceptional courage and commitment, often working at great risk to protect our environment. In the process, they inspire the rest of us to do the same. For more information, visit www.goldmanprize.org
Grand Theft Auto V | Part 6 | Marriage Counseling and Grass Roots | Story Mode |
 
29:47
Grand Theft Auto V is an action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It was released on 17 September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, on 18 November 2014 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on 14 April 2015 for Microsoft Windows. It is the first main entry in the Grand Theft Auto series since 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV. Set within the fictional state of San Andreas, based on Southern California, the single-player story follows three criminals and their efforts to commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas' open countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos, based on Los Angeles. The game is played from either a first-person or third-person view and its world is navigated on foot or by vehicle. Players control the three lead protagonists throughout single-player and switch between them both during and outside of missions. The story is centred on the heist sequences, and many missions involve shooting and driving gameplay. A "wanted" system governs the aggression of law enforcement response to players who commit crimes. Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer mode, lets up to 30 players explore the open world and engage in cooperative or competitive game matches. Development began soon after Grand Theft Auto IV's release and was shared between many of Rockstar's studios worldwide. The development team drew influence from many of their previous projects such as Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3, and designed the game around three lead protagonists to innovate on the core structure of its predecessors. Much of the development work constituted the open world's creation, and several team members conducted field research around California to capture footage for the design team. The game's soundtrack features an original score composed by a team of producers who collaborated over several years. Extensively marketed and widely anticipated, the game broke industry sales records and became the fastest-selling entertainment product in history, earning US $800 million in its first day and US $1 billion in its first three days. It received widespread critical acclaim, with praise directed at its multiple protagonist design, open world, presentation and gameplay. However, it caused controversies related to its depiction of women and a mission featuring torture during a hostage interrogation. Considered one of seventh generation console gaming's most significant titles and among the best games ever made, it won year-end accolades including Game of the Year awards from several gaming publications. It has shipped over 80 million copies and is one of the best-selling video games of all time.

Maisha: A New Life Outside the Mines (Trailer)
 
02:23
The complete film can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rb0a0t8JJnc This documentary film takes you inside the copper and cobalt mines of Democratic Republic of the Congo, the first rung of the global supply chain of “digital minerals” that is trapping millions in poverty. This spring, our filmmakers were granted unprecedented access to the artisanal pit mines around Kolwezi, located in the DRC's mineral-rich Katanga region. This little known part of the world powers our digital age, giving us the raw materials for mobile phones, computers and the electric grid. There they found an appalling level of human misery and exploitation, but also a powerful grassroots project run by the Good Shepherd Sisters that is helping the most at-risk by building an alternative to the mines - a school for ex-child miners, and a cooperative farm and a budding clothing design enterprise for former miners.
