              The Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) are two of the seven species of sea turtles in the world that nest at the beaches of Pakistan every year. For over a 100 million years of the earth's history, sea turtles have made the oceans their home. They are a species so ancient they have seen the dinosaurs evolve and go extinct. The sandy beaches of Sindh and Baluchistan are important nesting sites for sea turtles. Spending most of their lives in the oceans, adult turtles return to the beach where they were born to lay their eggs. After an incubation period of about two months the youngsters hatch and scramble towards the water. Only one in a thousand survive to adulthood. The main threats to their survival are pollution, loss of nesting and foraging habitats, poaching, predation, being hit by boats and getting caught in fishing nets. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species has classified six of the seven sea turtle species in the world as endangered or critically endangered and forbids their exploitation by international law. In order to celebrate sea turtles and to promote conservation efforts, 2006 was declared as the Year of the Turtle in the Indian Ocean and South-East Asian Region. In 2008, Sea Turtles was nominated for a 22nd Genesis Award in the Brigitte Bardot International category for "its excellent depiction of the perils facing the endangered sea turtles of Pakistan and the efforts being made to save them". The Genesis Awards are held each year by the Humane Society of the United States to recognize "television, film, music, and other special categories for raising awareness of animal topics".

                  • Between Heaven and Modernity

                    03:49

                    from ChinaFile / Added

                    Combining social, political, and cultural history, this book examines the contestation over space, history, and power in the late Qing and Republican-era reconstruction of the ancient capital of Suzhou as a modern city. Located fifty miles west of Shanghai, Suzhou has been celebrated throughout Asia as a cynosure of Chinese urbanity and economic plenty for a thousand years. With the city's 1895 opening as a treaty port, businessmen and state officials began to draw on Western urban planning in order to bolster Chinese political and economic power against Japanese encroachment. As a result, both Suzhou as a whole and individual components of the cityscape developed new significance according to a calculus of commerce and nationalism. Japanese monks and travelers, Chinese officials, local people, and others competed to claim Suzhou’s streets, state institutions, historic monuments, and temples, and thereby to define the course of Suzhou’s and greater China’s modernity.  —Stanford University Press

                      Where there's a food desert, there's a….hydroponic farm? At least that’s the case in Bushwick of Brooklyn New York. The indoor farm, inspired by Bushwick's woody farmland roots is powered by the community, extreme plumbing, heat lamps that drive up the electric bill, and a touch of home. Reporter Gabrielle Wright spoke with Lee Mandell, the founder of Boswyck Farms, and the man living in a loft space that doubles as a farm.
