Can seaweed save shellfish from climate change?

first_imgClimate Change | Environment | Fisheries | Food | NPR News | OceansCan seaweed save shellfish from climate change?January 30, 2018 by Lauren Sommer, KQED-San Francisco, California Share:Scientists are hoping that seagrasses could act as a buffer against acidifying oceans. (Photo by Lauren Sommer/KQED)The impacts of climate change aren’t a far-off possibility for the Pacific shellfish industry. Acidifying seawater is already causing problems for oyster farms along the West Coast and it’s only expected to get worse.That has one Bay Area oyster farm looking for ways to adapt. It’s teaming up scientists who are studying how the local ecosystem could lend a helping hand.“We need help,” says Terry Sawyer of Hog Island Oyster Company. “That ‘canary in a coalmine’ analogy drives me crazy, but that’s what we are.”Sawyer’s natural habitat is on the mudflats of Tomales Bay, about 50 miles north of San Francisco, where his oyster operation is located. But a few years ago, he started going to climate change conferences, sitting next to scientists and policymakers.“Carbon chemistry is incredibly sophisticated, complicated science,” he says. “I am definitely out of my element. Out of my comfort zone. I’d rather be in shorts and no shoes.”To him, it was a necessity. Like a lot of oyster farmers, he buys baby oysters from hatcheries in Oregon and Washington. But starting a decade ago, the hatcheries began having mysterious die-offs.“The orders that we were getting – if we were getting them at all, they wouldn’t necessarily happen at the time or the size that we could take them,” he says.Scientists eventually identified the main culprit: acidifying seawater.At least a quarter of the carbon humans put into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels is soaked up by the ocean. It acts like a carbon sponge, but adding carbon to seawater makes it more acidic. Since the start of the Industrial Revolution, the oceans have become about 30 percent more acidic.It’s harmful for animals that build shells, like oysters, and spells big trouble for the Pacific shellfish industry, worth more than $100 million.“You don’t want to curl up in a fetal position,” says Sawyer. “You do want to say we’ve got to move on this and we need help.”Sawyer found some help by opening up his oyster farm to a team of scientists.The water’s acidity is monitored with real-time equipment, part of a network run by UC Davis’s Bodega Marine Lab.“That was a significant move: knowing what’s going to day-to-day, minute-by-minute,” he says. “And it’s also been proving the point. We have numbers you can’t argue with.”Hog Island is also opening its own oyster hatchery in Humboldt Bay to improve the reliability of the supply chain.The oyster farm is also assisting with cutting-edge scientific research, focused on how oysters could get a boost from native plants in Tomales Bay.Workers sort fresh oysters at Hog Island Oyster Company near Tomales Bay, north of San Francisco. (Photo by Lauren Sommer/KQED)On a sunny morning, a team of scientists is scuba-diving in a shallow part of the bay, surrounded by thick, green seagrass, waving in the current.“When you’re down in it, it really feels like you’re in a forest of seagrass,” says Kristy Kroeker, professor of marine biology at UC Santa Cruz. “It’s quite long.”This seagrass is a glimmer of hope for oyster farmers. Plants, whether it’s a forest or lawn, take up carbon dioxide and use it for photosynthesis.“The plants under the water are doing the exact same thing,” Kroeker says.The seagrass pulls the carbon out of the water, which makes it slightly less acidic.“Essentially, they’re creating this little bubble of seawater around them that’s more friendly for animals that might be threatened by ocean acidification,” she says.Kroeker is trying to find out if the seagrasses could act as a buffer, protecting the oysters nearby.She plants mesh bags of baby oysters in the seagrass bed, which she’ll be watching in the months to come. So far, the results look promising, but not necessarily the whole answer.Seagrass can reduce acidification around it, but potentially only in certain locations or at certain times of year. More research will be needed, Kroeker says, but against a global problem, local approaches have a lot of potential.“Can we use parts of nature that we already know are important – seagrasses – to actually benefit people and protect them from some of these impacts?” she says.The approach is being studied around the world in different ecosystems, including near coral reefs, and using bigger marine plants, like kelp.Eventually, it’ll be up to oyster farmers like Terry Sawyer to make the research work on the ground – or, in the water.“From an aquaculture point of view, you bet I’m hopeful,” Sawyer says. “Maybe I’m being idealistic here. But we’re learning so much. We’re just at the tip of the iceberg on that.”Copyright 2018 KQED. To see more, visit KQED.Share this story:last_img read more

Manchester United’s prolific former manager Sir Alex Ferguson is writing a book on leadership with ex-Google and Yahoo executive Sir Michael Moritz

first_imgWednesday 11 March 2015 9:48 am Share whatsapp Sir Alex Ferguson, the prolific former manager of Manchester United, will soon reveal the secrets of his success in a new book on leadership.Having won 38 trophies in 26 years with the Premier League club, the retired manager is already sharing his knowledge as a teacher at Harvard Business School. Now Ferguson is teaming up with investor Sir Michael Moritz, a former executive at Google and Yahoo, to reveal all of his leadership lessons after spending 38 years as a manager.The tome from Hodder & Stoughton is due to be released in October, simply called Leading.The pair will cover tactics and teamwork, hiring and firing, dealing with the boardroom and responding to failure, taking an in-depth look at Ferguson’s pivotal leadership decisions throughout a glittering career at the top to inspire leaders off the pitch.“Since stepping into retirement I have had the opportunity to reflect on my time as a football manager, and to consider the reasons behind my success through personal recollections, conversations with Mike Moritz and my role at Harvard Business School,” said Ferguson. “It has been a new experience for me to be looking into the past rather than planning for the future, but one that I have found enjoyable and rewarding.“The process behind creating this book began many years ago following my first meeting with Mike, which immediately created a mutual respect for each other’s achievements. Over the past year, we have spent many hours together as we have worked our way through my life in order to draw out and discuss the key philosophies I applied during my career,” he said.One to add to the reading list come autumn. whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img Lynsey Barber by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyDiscovery29+ Fascinating U.S. Navy WarshipsDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyMoneyWise.com15 States Where Americans Don’t Want To Live AnymoreMoneyWise.comTheFashionBallPrince Harry Admits Meghan Markle May Not Be The OneTheFashionBall More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Manchester United’s prolific former manager Sir Alex Ferguson is writing a book on leadership with ex-Google and Yahoo executive Sir Michael Moritz Tags: Manchester United Yahoolast_img read more

Se intensifican las diferencias sociales a la hora de celebrar una…

first_img News Image: Yonhap News Agency News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China Ordinary Pyongyang residents have not received government rations since mid-April By Daily NK – 2015.03.27 4:55pm SHARE AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Se intensifican las diferencias sociales a la hora de celebrar una boda en Corea del Norte News Se ha comunicado de que se estáintensificando la brecha entre ricos y pobres al momento de celebrar una bodaen Corea del Norte. De acuerdo con lo señalado por una fuente al interior delpaís, diversas parejas están contrayendo nupcias en esta época; sin embargo,mientras que los hijos de los oficiales del Partido y los donju (los llamados“nuevos ricos” de Corea del Norte) celebran verdaderas “fiestas de dólares”,los estratos más desfavorecidos deben optar por ceremonias más simples. En comunicación con Daily NK, la fuente,proveniente de la provincia Pyongan del Norte, informó el día 26 que “a medidaque aumenta el número de bodas durante la primavera, se pueden apreciar en lascalles y pueblos las diferencias en cómo se ven las parejas de recién casados.La gente pobre se viste con un jeogori (una chaqueta pequeña que forma partedel atuendo tradicional coreano) barato, conseguido en el mercado, y así setoma una fotografía de conmemoración de la fecha. En las casas de los másacomodados, por el contrario, la gente se pone jeogori de 150 dólares ovestimentas occidentales. Además, les dan dinero en abundancia (a las parejas),y filman el momento conduciendo en coches Mercedes Benz alquilados”. “Las diferencias entre los pobres yaquellos con más recursos se ven nítidamente al caer la noche”, agregó lafuente. “La gente común enciende velas, y de esta manera reciben a susinvitados, en habitaciones oscuras. En cambio, los donju, así como los miembrosdel Partido entregan dinero en dólares a las subestaciones, para recibir suministroeléctrico. De este modo, se divierten cantando en karaoke, en sus casas bieniluminadas”. “Las personas comunes y corrientes seesfuerzan al máximo para preparar comidas como el tteok (dulce de arroz) u onban(sopa caliente de carne o pollo y arroz), con el fin de que los invitadospuedan comer hasta saciarse en las bodas. Sin embargo, las clases altas ofrecena sus invitados costosos licores importados, por ejemplo, vino. Además, para amenizarel ambiente, invitan a cantantes o actores y les pagan en dólares”. Según la fuente, los oficiales y los donju pagan100 dólares o incluso más a cantantes o pianistas para que acudan a las bodas ofiestas de cumpleaños de sus hijos. Más aún, no hace mucho la popularidad de uncomediante era tal que era necesario pagar mucho más por sus actuaciones de loque usualmente cobrarían otros artistas. Al respecto, la fuente señaló que “fueen el año 2007, tras su participación en una fiesta de la elite en la ciudad deSinuiju (en el norte del país), que el actor Ri Chun Hong se puso de moda. Suactuación quedó grabada en un CD, del cual se hicieron copias. Así comenzótodo. Tras ese episodio, la fama del artista aumentó; hacia el año 2010, lapopularidad de los humoristas era mucho mayor en comparación con la de loscantantes o pianistas”. “Recientemente, un hombre de unos 40 añosde edad se hizo conocido imitando el estilo de Ri Chun Hong, con lo queconsiguió invitaciones a bodas y cumpleaños realizadas por personas de clasemedia. Toca la guitarra, canta y habla de toda clase de cosas. Hasta unaestatua de piedra se ríe cuando habla, por lo que la gente dice que es comoestar escuchando a Ri Chun Hong”, explicó la fuente. No obstante, “pese a que el Partido estáintentando erradicar la corrupción en los oficiales, haciendo que las bodas delos hijos de estos sean más simples (y no al estilo extranjero, como lo hanhecho algunas personas), la práctica de entregar sobornos continúa, y con ello,las extravagantes celebraciones matrimoniales”.  Facebook Twitter Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department storelast_img read more

The week ahead: Fed speeches, BlackBerry shares in focus

Markets will be looking for a new focus this week after investors were set adrift by last week’s decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve to continue unabated its $85 billion a month of stimulus spending. The U.S. central bank surprised investors by announcing that it had no plans to curtail any of its unprecedented bond purchases, which were put in place following the 2008 financial crisis. Stocks and commodities soared mid-week on the news, but had given back a big chunk of those gains by Friday. S&P/TSX composite hits highest close since March on strength of financials sector For the last few months, the focus has been on whether the Fed would begin tapering its stimulus, and by how much. The anticipation had been that it was going to happen this month amid signs of an improving economy. But Fed chairman Ben Bernanke said he was still not convinced that the economy would be okay if the bank pulled back. Now that there’s some breathing room, investors will have to figure out what they should pay attention to until the next Fed meeting in October. “The market now is sitting around saying, ‘OK so now what? What do we have to focus on?”’ said Allan Small, a senior investment adviser with DWM Securities. “The market is kind of pausing. It doesn’t really know which way to go.” What will be closely watched will be a number of speeches this week by at least 10 members of the Fed, who may hint at when there may be action on the stimulus. If it doesn’t happen next month, the next opportunity may be at the following Fed gathering in December. Attention will also be paid to tech company BlackBerry Ltd., after shares in the smartphone company tumbled significantly last week on news that it was cutting 4,500 jobs and expects to report a quarterly loss of between US$950 and US$995 million. Most of the loss will come from a massive writedown it will take due to poor sales of its new smartphone devices. BlackBerry also announced it was reducing the number of devices in its portfolio from six to four. Half of the smartphones will be marketed towards higher-end consumers, while the other two will be for entry-level customers. Its second quarterly earnings are due on Friday. Several key U.S. economic reports will be also released this week, including durable goods orders and new home sales figures. Economists don’t expect these numbers to hold any big surprises, but if they do, then they may become fodder for the Fed’s tapering deliberations. “All the numbers play a part. The Fed is watching everything right now. And really, they’ve said that the economic data will dictate what they do going forward. It all matters,” said Small. “You want to look at it from the standpoint of: Is the U.S. economy continuing to grow and what is the pace of growth? Right now, the pace is modest and that’s why the Fed is not reacting.” In Canada, the most anticipated figures will be the retail sales numbers, which come out Tuesday. Bay Street predicts sales rebounded in July with an estimated 0.6 per cent month-over-month gain after a weak June. It’s expected this figure will be pumped up by growing demand for automobiles. Rainy weather in Central Canada may have had some impact on retail sales, but sales of items such as building materials and gardening supplies may have got a boost following the Alberta floods and the end of the Quebec construction strike. Stocks have also seen some volatility recently due to concerns over Syria, and whether the U.S. will launch missile strikes on the Middle Eastern country in retaliation for an alleged government chemical attack on its own citizens there last month. But those worries have been alleviated through diplomatic efforts to neutralize Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles. “We’re kind of in that lull before other quarterly earnings reports are released at the end of the month,” said Small. Early on in the week, the markets will also keep an eye out on the results of Sunday’s general election in Germany. Last week, polls showed that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s centre-right coalition was neck-and-neck with the left-leaning opposition. As change in leadership could spell a new direction in economic policy in Germany, the eurozone’s economic powerhouse.

Business of the Year: Kalispell Kreamery

first_imgMarilyn Hedstrom, left, and her husband, Bill Hedstrom, milk cows at their dairy farm in West Valley. Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Email With the opening of Kalispell Kreamery in June, an experienced dairy family has suddenly found itself scrambling to learn the ins and outs of milk processing. While an immense challenge, the transition is proving fruitful. Kalispell Kreamery milk is sold in supermarkets and coffeehouses across western Montana and the owners can barely keep up with the rapidly rising demand. Kalispell Kreamery produces non-homogenized milk. Mary Tuck calls it “old-fashioned milk.” It has a thicker layer of cream on top and people often find there is an element of nostalgia involved with shaking the jug. Tuck said large companies use milk from multiple dairies, which necessitates homogenization. There are also other reasons, some political, that have made homogenization so widespread, she said. Homogenization should not be confused with pasteurization, the process in which milk is heated to kill bad pathogens. Kalispell Kreamery’s milk is pasteurized. A major benefit of non-homogenized milk, Tuck said, is that the fat globules are more naturally digested into the body. Also, Jared Tuck said that many lactose intolerant people are able to drink Kalispell Kreamery’s milk. It’s not a guarantee, but he encourages anybody with lactose intolerance to at least give it a try. “We call it the lactose challenge,” he said. Hedstrom Dairy doesn’t use antibiotics. As a “closed herd,” the cows are never introduced to bacteria from outside cattle, Mary Tuck said. Breeding is done through artificial insemination. The farm has produced 10 generations of calves and there are about 120 active milking cows right now. They produce year round. “They’re happy cows and they make good milk,” Mary Tuck said. Another part of keeping the cows happy and healthy is allowing them to meander through their daily lives as they wish. “They’re free to lay down when they want. They eat when they want. They drink when they want,” Mary Tuck said. “That’s a big philosophy we have with the cows. You don’t force a 2,000-pound cow to do anything she doesn’t want to.” Careful nurturing of each animal is a luxury that a relatively small operation has, Bill Hedstrom said. “Too big removes the owner from the animals,” he said. “We like the land and the cows.” Clearly, the Hedstroms and Tucks understand cows. But building the onsite processing plant, and then learning how to use it, was an entirely new adventure. There is a precise science involved with milk processing, one that relies on monitoring pressure, temperature and time. When they first purchased all of the equipment, now connected through a maze of pipes, it sat on the floor like a cruel jigsaw puzzle or advanced engineering Lego set waiting to be conquered. Putting it together took long enough that the owners had to postpone the opening date for Kalispell Kreamery for several months. “At first, when we got all of this, it was just a pile of stainless steel and we didn’t have a clue what we were doing,” Jared Tuck said. “Most of the guys will pay $500,000 to have an engineer come in here. We didn’t have that kind of money, so we learned.” Kalispell Kreamery’s milk goes from the cow to the processor into the jug and then on to the truck within the same day. As long as the supermarket isn’t too far of a drive, it probably will receive the milk that day. The creamery produces 800 gallons of milk per day on average. It’s sold at a price comparable to any other milk. A half-gallon of reduced-fat milk costs $2.50 and a gallon costs $3.50. “Cream-On-Top” whole milk, half-and-half, heavy whipping cream and skim milk are also sold. Butter is sold for $5 per pound. Both the butter and milk are cheaper in bulk. “We went from zero gallons to 800 (per day) in six months,” Mary Tuck said. “It’s been pretty impressive. People have been so supportive.” In the future, Kalispell Kreamery will likely make other products such as cottage cheese and ice cream. Both the dairy side and creamery side have a team of part-time and full-time employees, in addition to the family members. Tours of the farm, processing facility and store, all located off of Farm to Market Road, are available. Bill Hedstrom said he sold raw milk back in the 1970s but had to quit when state laws changed. Decades later, he’s in the processing business and it’s working out better than he could have hoped. “As fast as it’s moved has surprised me,” Hedstrom said. “It just took off like wildfire.” Kalispell Kreamery is located at 480 Lost Creek Dr. It can be reached by phone at (406) 756-6455 or found online at www.kalispellkreamery.com. In an age when people are again beginning to care where their food comes from, the folks at Kalispell Kreamery invite you to come meet their cows. The cows are healthy, happy animals, untouched by hormones and antibiotics. They’re treated like pets, family members and business partners. And the Hedstrom family knows that if the cows are happy, business is good. Bill and Marilyn Hedstrom have operated a dairy farm near Kalispell for more than 30 years, largely because Bill fell in love with his first family milk cow. Today, he can tell a cow’s mood – its desires and dilemmas – just by looking or listening. The Hedstroms’ love of cows has rubbed off on their daughter Mary Tuck and son-in-law Jared Tuck. Together, the four built a milk-processing facility at Hedstrom Dairy and opened another business, Kalispell Kreamery. Now every step of milk production – from raising cows to processing to bottling – is completed right on the family farm. “People think we’re excited about milk,” Jared Tuck said, “but this whole thing started because Bill was excited about cows.” last_img read more
