Drought Reflection: Competition For Water Resources In The Mekong Disorder Station

According to relevant reports Netease, since the beginning of this year, five provinces in southwest China suffered a severe drought, no rain for months continued into March, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia are beginning to have serious drought, which flows through the five countries Mekong River water level dropped to the lowest level in 20 years. To this end, the lower Mekong countries criticized China’s Upper Mekong dams in the drought intensified. In fact, the Mekong River since ancient times “is not and the water,” joked, but the debate on this issue has continued for decades.

Around the Mekong River water resources development of the three disputed

Controversial one: repair of dams in the upstream river will affect the ecological balance?

Environmental protection Organization: Mekong dams accelerated the reduction of water, water quality, changes in water flow has caused a series of questions: for example, Vietnam’s “rice bowl” Mekong Delta River erosion are due to seasonal flooding and the unique Arid Changes affected.

Thai fishermen: the unpredictability of salt to bring the production of agricultural and fishery losses. Thailand Parmon dam near the fishermen said, “when the dam burst the first time, Hanoi was scared to scattered fish. Dam projects after the beginning of the year, Hanoi has no fish.”

The Chinese government: the dam is the biggest ecological impact of sediment to flow downstream fewer, because the silt gathered in a reservoir, but this objective so that the Mekong River for irrigation and navigation more convenient. Former minister of China Ministry of Water Resources, Association of China Wang Shucheng more dams, “said the ecological water Environment Impact only on the watershed area, but if you do not affect the development and construction of water damage to the global ecological environment. “

Controversy II: repair of dams in the upper reaches of the river is dirty water will decrease?

Environmental protection Organization: Council. Construction of dam would change the law in each of the ups and downs the water, which makes water the downstream countries subject to the upper reaches of the state regulation of water demand. Mekong River in the past few months the region is indeed reduced precipitation, which is not only a natural drought, or by the upper reaches of the impact of large dams projects.

Mekong River Commission: no. Mekong River water level drop is caused by the drought rather than natural causes caused the dam. Rainfall in the Mekong River Basin in 2009 dropped by 30%, while the rainy season but end month and a half earlier than usual, which makes the Mekong and its tributaries, smaller volume of water. “Upstream flood control dams have a positive effect”, the Mekong River Commission President Jeremy Bird said, “If there are no dams upstream, downstream in January of this year is likely to have been shortage of water supply problems.”

Chinese government: no. Average annual runoff of the departure Lancang Mekong River to the sea only 13.5% of average annual runoff of the Mekong water main outside the Mekong River from China (86.5%). Water evaporation from reservoirs, small hydropower, hydropower does not consume water running. Moreover, China has no inter-basin water transfer Lancang River Basin Plan, along the very few industrial and agricultural water consumption, the demand on limited water resources. Lancang River Hydropower Development almost no effect on downstream water.

Controversial three: no effect after the completion of the dam, who is in charge?

Mekong River Commission (MRC): Mekong River Commission, an advisory in the form of Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, the development of water resources issues in four countries for data detection and information analysis, but on the national implementation of the project without any decision. At present, the downstream countries of dams on river water temperature conditions on the authority of the data, mostly from the agency on rainfall, river levels and floods clock of the periodic reports.

China: China’s Yunnan Province has its own testing system, but never in the past 15 years, the downstream country open. March 25 this year, China announced its willingness to offer the first time in Yunnan Jinghong Hydropower Station Dam and water level information Manwan. However, the Chinese government within the data provided only for the assessment of the dam.

Environmental organizations: Thailand’s “Siamese River of Life,” “Save the Mekong Union” and other environmental organizations, environmental groups are opposed to dam the Mekong River (especially hydroelectric dam) of the active non-governmental forces, they through the organization of the various inter-regional forums, published articles in the media side of “supervision” of China and its construction of the dam.

Mormon Temple Boston Massachusetts

Some cool radio station images:

Mormon Temple Boston Massachusetts

Image by More Good Foundation
The open house of the 100th Mormon temple captured media and public attention. About 82,600 visitors toured the temple prior to its dedication. A local radio station and newspaper working together produced the first on-line tours of a temple. It included narration accompanied by photographs of the temple’s interior.

Because of a lawsuit from local residents, the temple was dedicated without the planned steeple. President Hinckley was optimistic about the issue saying,

” We wish the steeple were on it. I regret that it isn’t. But we can get along without it while awaiting the outcome of the legal action. In the meantime, we’ll go forward performing the ordinance work of this sacred house.” 2

His optimism was rewarded, when in May the Supreme Court of Massachusetts ruled in favor of the Church. Previously, Judge Elizabeth Fahey had ruled that the building’s steeple was not a “necessary element of the Mormon religion.” Therefore under the law, the building height limit could be enforced. But the Supreme Court overruled her ruling saying, “A rose window at Notre Dame Cathedral, a balcony at St. Peter’s Basilica, are judges to decide whether these architectural elements are ‘necessary’ to the faith served by those buildings?” The judges concluded that, “It is not for judges to determine whether the inclusion of a particular architectural feature is ‘necessary’ for a particular religion.”3 And on September 21, 2001, the steeple with the famous angel Moroni was set in place, completing the Boston temple.

How to Live a Timeless Life Now

by Kara 2

Many of us at one time or another have wanted to live forever, but the sad reality is that most of us can hardly plan a two week vacation, let alone keep ourselves busy during the weekend. But living forever is an intriguing thought in the esoteric sense perhaps but in the literal sense not quite.But I can assist you in leading a happier ,healthier life through food choices and exercise, notice I stated food choices not diet.Some would say a matter of semantics but I would beg to differ, none of us wants to voluntarily be on a diet whether we’re over weight or not, because diets give us the feeling that we are missing out on something and that feeling eventually builds up and causes us to fall off and drop the diet or go into a binge which begins or continues the never ending saga.

By making different food choices and different exercise choices , we can in fact look and feel as young as we desire from the very point that we begin this journey for our health.We’ve heard that we should eat healthy but it’s so much easier in our minds to simply grab what is convenient, so that pattern can continue but the choices should change from it’s easy to grab a burger ,to its easy to grab an apple, orange or a bunch of grapes.You decide which fruits and vegetables you can include in your meals and don’t be afraid to be flexible, you can juice your fruits and vegetables from time to time or take them both in salads or smoothies.Likewise it’s great to snack on nuts and grains but they to can be added to cereals and salads as well.Likewise with our 6-8 glasses of water can easily include tea,juices and fruits.

Granted its seems easier to sit on the couch and watch a good movie and channel surf than it is to step on the treadmill, a gazelle, stair stepper or stationery cycle while enjoying the same movie or channel surfing.And of course these choices can be loosened once our goals are achieved, if you don’t have the desire for viewing your tv entertainment in such a way for the rest of your life.

If your not into the traditional exercises or the joining of a gym,then go jogging , speed walking,rollerblading or swim a few laps in a pool or walk a few laps in the pool, use the pool weights or inflatables or if you enjoy watching tv ,then put on a exercise video and follow along, they have so many out there now from jazzercise to mma and boxing and everything in between.We do not need to be told how to exercise, the truth is everyone is different, what is key is to simply discover what you enjoy doing to exercise your body. From walking in the sand near the water or between the trees in the forest or among the cactus of the desert.

For then and only then will you reach your goals of staying and feeling younger. Your choices of food and exercise should be followed as closely as you choose the fuel for your car. You wouldn’t dream of putting diesel into your unleaded vehicle or pouring oil into your radiator,water into your oil fill cap,power steering fluid into your brake reservoir and you wouldn’t try to plug a 120 into a 220 socket, but at the same time it has been so easy for many of us to make unhealthy choices when it comes to our own bodies.Which at the very least deserve the same if not better treatment than our cars.So By following this style of thinking and action is how we begin to live a timeless life now.

Start An Internet Business Now

It’s Time To Build And Protect Wealth

by Michael D. Hume, M.S.

There are several reasons now is the perfect time to start an internet business, or to migrate some/all of your brick-and-mortar business to the world of click-and-order.

First, the liberal government continues its desperate dash toward driving America to socialism. As long as they still have the upper hand, the environment for more passive investment will be bad, and trending worse. Most of the “smart money” will stay on the sidelines until President Obama and his liberal majorities in both houses of Congress have moved into history; their control of the House of Representatives ends in just a few days. Meanwhile, they continue their scorched-earth efforts by attempting to set up as many tax-and-spend edifices as they can for the new conservative House to have to dismantle, including a new effort to regulate the internet itself. Ultimately, most of these efforts will be reversible, and the current momentum is clearly in the direction of removing the collectivist/statists and installing new lawmakers who believe in the free market that made the U.S. economy great. Entrepreneurs with vision – those who take personal responsibility now to get themselves into business on the ‘net – will lead this reversal into happier economic times. You want to be part of this new wave of inspirational leadership.

The current political/economic environment also means things are changing in the world economy, and changing in big ways. There is a multi-trillion dollar wealth transfer already underway, and the money will move from the uninformed to the informed – from those who cling to old ways of doing business to those who get ahead of the curve and anticipate the changes. Getting smart about the changing global economy should be your top priority… the winners in the new economy will employ investment strategies your traditional advisors only wish they knew about. And those winners are on the move right now, creating income streams on the internet that can be protected from such old-paradigm dangers as layoffs and union/government takeovers.

Another reason to move now is that barriers to entry are still incredibly low. You can develop a strong, sophisticated internet business with a surprisingly low investment from your TEAM of personal resources: Time, Energy, Attention, and Money. Align your internet business with a strong platform, or community of like-minded entrepreneurs (I can recommend the best ones), and you’ll get the coaching and support you need to succeed. These days, the upside of an internet income stream is substantial, while the downside risk is minimal.

Think about it. You know things are changing; the old ways of creating wealth are going away, and they’re not coming back. Twenty years from now, the wealthy will be those who had the vision and personal responsibility to learn how to make the internet work for them.

Don’t get left behind.
