So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

Being 60 no longer proves you’re old

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Earlier this year a shocking thing happened. I turned 60. It was a good time to remind myself of Robert Kennedy’s belief that “youth is not a time of life but a state of mind – a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination.” Turning 60 was also a good time to reflect on what it means to grow older in America, and to realize just how much that definition has changed in the second half of my lifetime. Thirty years ago, people over 70 were considered “really old,” and a 100th birthday warranted national news coverage. But no more, thanks in great part to the state of mind of those once called senior citizens. Sixty really has become the “new 40,” and the very notion of what is “old” is constantly being redefined. Many people are continuing to work well into their 70s and even 80s. Those who retire at 65 have many active years ahead of them for travel, second careers, volunteer activities and the vigorous lifestyle that defines this “new senior citizen.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsMore significant than the numbers is the fact that, over the past 30 years, there has been a refreshing change in lifestyle attitudes that has, as much as anything else, resulted in people living not just longer, but also better-quality, lives. The “new seniors” are taking increased accountability for their own health. More than ever before, they are watching their diet, having regular checkups, engaging in appropriate exercise, not smoking, keeping their minds alert and wearing seat belts. Of course, many of those choices would not be possible were it not for the incredible advances in medical science over the past 30 years. Diagnostics, from lab tests to high-tech devices, now allow physicians to pinpoint disease sooner and with greater accuracy. Surgical procedures that were once invasive and debilitating are now performed with minimal risk and rapid recovery. Pharmaceuticals now treat not only acute illness, but also the chronic conditions that once shortened lives. Preventive measures, from bone-density scans to flu shots, have become more routine, affordable and available. These advances in medicine are coming at a time when aging Americans are placing increasing value on independent living and are recognizing the physical, emotional and psychological advantages of staying in their own homes as long as possible. Portable medical equipment, new pharmaceuticals and breakthroughs in remote care are making this more achievable than ever. And that’s a good thing because nobody wants to go to a nursing home unnecessarily – certainly not the “new senior” who looks in the mirror and sees someone with lots still left to do. I, too, still have lots left to do and, as Robert Frost said, “miles to go before I sleep.” So hats off to my fellow seniors and the path they have blazed for me over the past 30 years. I know the best is truly yet to come. David Schmidt is president and chief executive officer of SCAN Health Plan.last_img read more

The Road to the Semantic Web

first_imgWhat is the Semantic Web?The Wikipedia defines the Semantic Web as aproject that intends to create a universal medium for information exchange by puttingdocuments with computer-processable meaning (semantics) on the World Wide Web. The core ideais to create the meta data describing the data, which will enable computers to process the meaning ofthings. Once computers are equipped with semantics, they will be capable of solving complex semanticaloptimization problems. For example, as John Markoff describes in his article, a computer will be ableto instantly return relevant search results if you tell it to find a vacation on a 3K budget. RDF is an XML-based language which enables description of relationships via predicates.The Wikipedia explains: The subject denotes the resource, and the predicatedenotes traits or aspects of the resource and expresses a relationship between the subject and the object.For example, one way to represent the notion “The sky has the color blue” in RDF is as a triple of specially formattedstrings: a subject denoting “the sky”, a predicate denoting “has the color”, and an object denoting “blue”.OWL is another XML-based language used for describing and reasoning ontologies. In a nutshell, OWL facilitates semantic descriptions such as Dog is an animal or Dog has four legs. There are three flavors of OWL: OWL Lite, OWL DL and OWL Full – each flavor capturing a different side of a trade off between expressiveness and computability.This RDF/OWL framework is comprehensive, but is difficult for people without a background in mathematics and computer science to understand. Given that this is a bottom up approach, it is clear that if it is to succeed, there needs to exist an automated mechanism that takes existing HTML content and turns it into RDF and OWL meta data. This, however, is a chicken-egg problem because if we could already do this, the problem would not be there to begin with. Still we can envision tooling which does 80% of the work automatically and then interacts with the person to complete the other 20% of the work. Tags:#web So the second important ingredient of the Semantic Web, the one that will facilitate productivity, is a set of persistent personal preferences. Once the computer knows your preferences and has a semantical representation of it online, it can then run an algorithm to deliver you precise, personalized results. To put it differently, your personal preferences is the filter that needs to be applied to the results that the computer returns in response to: Find a vacation for under 3K. And when this happens, then we can claim that the Semantic Web has arrived. MicroformatsRecognizing the complexity of RDF and OWL, a group of people are trying a different approach called Microformats. The goal of microformats is to embed the basic semantics right into HTML pages. It is not as expressive right now as RDF and OWL, but it is very compact and uses available XHTML facilities to add semantics to the pages. For example, there is a microformat for describing contact information called hCard. Using hCard it is possible to annotate the HTML so that a microformat-aware browser or a search engine can deduce the information about a person such as first and last name, a company or a phone number. Another mature microformat called hCalendar enables page authors to describe events. Many popular event sites, such as Facebook and Yahoo! Local use this format to annotate events in their HTML pages. Leaving the aesthetics of the representation aside, the microformats approach is clearly simpler than RDF and OWL. And even though it is less powerful, it is becoming very popular. Many site authors are starting to embed microformats into their HTML pages. We are also seeing some early examples of search engines based on microformats, likethis one from Technorati. The simple gain in using microformats and doing search is removing ambiguity. In a way, it is similar to the vertical search engine – which knows which vertical you are searching. With microformats inside the pages, the data is also no longer ambiguous, so the search results are more precise. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Still, there are some issues with microformats. The first one is the same as with the previous bottom up approach – people have to do the work to annotate the pages. The good news is that since the format is simpler, more can be done via reverse engineering and automation. The second issue is that the current set of microformats does not cover many things that we encounter online. For example, we are not aware of a format that would help represent a book or a movie. Many more formats need to be created before they can really “cover” the web.Semantic Web is Personalized WebThe problem of annotating data is very complex and is far from being solved completely. But let‚Äôs leave it aside for a moment and think of what we can be doing once all the data becomes annotated. The promise is that we will be doing less of what we are doing now – namely sifting through piles of irrelevant information. Given that the amount of information is growing exponentially and our tolerance is shrinking, this is a very intriguing proposition. If the computer can return relevant results instantly, we can potentially save a ton of time. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Written by Alex Iskold and edited by Richard MacManus.John Markoff’s recent article in NY Timeshas generated an interesting discussion about Web 3.0 being the long-promised Semantic Web. For instance,a short post on Fred Wilson’s blog had a lot oflengthy comments attempting to define Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. Some people think that the Semantic Web isabout AI, some claim that it is more about semantics, while others say that it is about data annotation.All agree however, that we will all be wonderfully more productive and simply happier when it arrives.Lets take a look at the ingredients, definitions and approaches to the Semantic Web so that we can recognizeit when it is finally here. Related Posts But having semantics and knowing all relationships between the data is not enough to do that. Take the simple example of a travel agency. When you show up there for the first time, the agent does not know what to offer you, even though she knows the semantics of travel, the relationships between things and the prices of everything. In order to be effective, she needs to know where you’ve been already and what kind of destinations you like. That‚Äôs why she asks you questions. All services that we receive work this way and the results are better and more refined over time, because service people have time to learn what you like. ConclusionSo will the ‘Web 3.0’ be the Semantic Web? Probably. But are we there yet? Not quite. It will take some time to annotate the world’s information and then to capture personal information in the right way, to enable the kinds of applications that we have discussed. We are certainly getting close and it will be interesting to see how things unfold over the next few years.Incidentally, if you would like us to write more about the Semantic Web please let us know and we will do follow up posts. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… alex iskold 1 In order for computers to be able to solve problems like this one, the information on the web needsto be annotated with descriptions and relationships. Basic examples of semantics consist of categorizingan object and its attributes. For example, books fall into a Books category where each object hasattributes such as the author, the number of pages and the publication date.

Crime-solving technique maps the underground lair of the Slovenian dragon

first_imgFAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS—Although the blind cave salamander Proteus anguinus is one of the national animals of Slovenia, it’s so shy that there have been only about 300 sightings in 300 years. Now, molecular biologists have learned how to keep track of these elusive animals without having to see them: by using a new probe that detects their DNA in the springs in which they swim. Already the probe—described here last week at the 2016 International Conference on Subterranean Biology—has detected Proteus in places it’s never been known to go. The approach has also provided tantalizing evidence that a rare black subspecies of the typically white creature might actually be a bona fide species of its own.The work opens up new possibilities for the salamander’s conservation and also for using so-called environmental DNA (eDNA) to monitor animals that live where humans just can’t go. “It has fantastic utility because so many aquatic cave habitats are unavailable to us,” says Rick Olson, an ecologist at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky who was not involved with the work.Cave animals are among the most bizarre and understudied creatures on this planet. And Proteus tops the list, as the world’s biggest cave animal and Europe’s only cave vertebrate. It lives in underground aquifers in Slovenia, surfacing only when floodwaters sweep it from its lair. At 30 centimeters, Proteus is a giant among salamanders, and—like most cave creatures—it has lost its eyes and its color. Lab-raised specimens show that the amphibian can live for more than a century. It becomes sexually mature about the same time as humans (age 14), but it can reproduce only once every 7 years. And it can go years without eating a thing and survive just fine. Four hundred years ago, locals thought the salamanders were baby dragons, with mythical protective powers.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)But little has been done to ensure the animals’ survival, despite its status as a European “priority” species—one that deserves the government’s protection. The rare, black Proteus may be even more endangered than the white Proteus, the more common form of the species. Since it was first discovered in 1986, it has only been sighted at four springs in southeastern Slovenia.Frustrated that biologists don’t know the first thing about how big or widespread the salamander populations are, Špela Goricki, a molecular biologist at the Tular Cave Laboratory in Kranj, Slovenia, decided to borrow a forensic technique more commonly used in law enforcement: eDNA. The method, which detects DNA from skin cells, hair, and other cells released into the environment, has already been used to track surface organisms like invasive fish and snakes. But it had never before been used to track cave creatures.By analyzing Proteus DNA from previously collected specimens, Goric​ki designed genetic probes, short stretches of genetic material that differentially link to its DNA but bypass that of other organisms. Further, the team has designed the probes so they can differentiate white Proteus DNA from black. Goric​ki and her colleagues then systematically surveyed dozens of springs and caves in Slovenia known or suspected to have Proteus residents. They also checked underground water in nearby Montenegro and Herzegovina.Black Proteus DNA showed up in five new places all within a few kilometers of each other. The team also found evidence for white Proteus in new spots, including Herzegovina and Montenegro. What’s more, the team found the first evidence that these two groups might sometimes live side by side, suggesting that they are two separate species. If they were a single species, such side-by-side living would lead to interbreeding. But that doesn’t seem to have happened, Goric​ki says.But the wider range doesn’t mean that the salamanders are any safer than they were. More agriculture in the area means more nitrogen and phosphorous in the aquifers where they live, which could be toxic to the animals, Goric​ki says. “I hope the conservation authorities will fulfill their promise” to develop more effective ways to protect this species, she adds.Even if that plan is slow in coming, Goric​ki thinks her success will pave the way for other eDNA monitoring programs. “In 10 years, this will be the method of choice for rare and endangered species, as well as invasive species,” she predicts. Olson agrees. At Mammoth Cave National Park, researchers have already begun to use eDNA to keep track of the endangered Kentucky cave shrimp, Palaemonias ganteri. “Environmental DNA gives us a way of not only knowing if it’s present, but also the concentration of DNA can give an idea of relative abundance,” Olson says. And that will go a long way in helping conserve these species.last_img read more
