Pumped Dry: The Global Crisis of Vanishing Groundwater | USA TODAY

USA TODAY   Published on Aug 14, 2018

In places around the world, supplies of groundwater are rapidly vanishing. As aquifers decline and wells begin to go dry, people are being forced to confront a growing crisis. Much of the planet relies on groundwater. And in places around the world – from the United States to Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America – so much water is pumped from the ground that aquifers are being rapidly depleted and wells are going dry. Groundwater is disappearing beneath cornfields in Kansas, rice paddies in India, asparagus farms in Peru and orange groves in Morocco. As these critical water reserves are pumped beyond their limits, the threats are mounting for people who depend on aquifers to supply agriculture, sustain economies and provide drinking water. In some areas, fields have already turned to dust and farmers are struggling. Climate change is projected to increase the stresses on water supplies, and heated disputes are erupting in places where those with deep wells can keep pumping and leave others with dry wells. Even as satellite measurements have revealed the problem’s severity on a global scale, many regions have failed to adequately address the problem. Aquifers largely remain unmanaged and unregulated, and water that seeped underground over tens of thousands of years is being gradually used up. In this documentary, USA TODAY and The Desert Sun investigate the consequences of this emerging crisis in several of the world’s hotspots of groundwater depletion. These are stories about people on four continents confronting questions of how to safeguard their aquifers for the future – and in some cases, how to cope as the water runs out. **************** Humankind: Amazing moments that give us hope ? https://bit.ly/2MrPxvd Humankind: Stories worth sharing ? https://bit.ly/2FWYXNP Animalkind: Cute, cuddly & curious animals ? https://bit.ly/2GdNf2j Just the FAQs: When news breaks, we break it down for you ? https://bit.ly/2Dw3Wnh The Wall: An in-depth examination of Donald Trump’s border wall ? https://bit.ly/2sksl8F

How Trump’s trade wars hurt US farmers

CNN   Published on Oct 23, 2018

As a result of President Donald Trump’s trade wars with China and other countries, US farmers are seeing a surplus of perishable goods stuck in limbo and increased prices for equipment. In good years, cargo trains moving west along the flat, sweeping grasslands of North Dakota’s plains are a sign of money rolling in. Today, as tariffs from America’s largest foreign soybean market — China — threaten to upend the industry, many trains sit idle. “There are no shuttle trains leaving. There is no nothing,” said Joe Ericson, the 38-year-old president of the North Dakota Soybean Growers Association. “They can’t get rid of the beans.” In conversations with more than 50 farmers, producers and agriculture experts in five states representing each of the five food groups, one trend was clear: The once-deep ties to President Donald Trump have frayed over the past year. But they remain intact for a small majority of farmers CNN spoke with ahead of the critical 2018 midterm elections. Democrats, who see an opening with Trump’s trade war, will likely struggle to make inroads with these voters. The President gives all of them plenty to complain about. They grumble about his tweeting — that’s not their style — and what his trade war has done to their bottom lines. But if the President’s re-election were held tomorrow, most of them would back him. They trust Trump, and many believe Democrats don’t understand or largely ignore their way of life. Still, Trump’s deep support in rural America, which helped propel him to the White House in 2016, is being tested. The wheat farmers, soybean growers and pork producers confront a growing trade war that is forcing them to re-evaluate their ties to the President’s Republican Party and openly question whether his mantra to “Make America Great Again” came at the expense of voters like them.

Inspiration from Ray Dalio

Imagine that in order to have a great life you have to cross a dangerous jungle. You can stay safe where you are and have an ordinary life, or you can risk crossing the jungle to have a terrific life. How would you approach that choice? Take a moment to think about it because it is the sort of choice that, in one form or another, we all have to make.

~ Ray Dalio

Ing’s Garden:  Black Swallowtail Butterfly

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts on Monday, August 19, 2019

Kai, our grandson, and his mother, came to visit us on Monday, August 19, 2019 during the afternoon. Kai went to the backyard garden; he saw a Black Swallowtail Butterfly.  He called me and his mother to see the butterfly.  This black swallowtail Butterfly was quite big and stayed about twenty minutes.  But the butterfly was so active moving around the garden and jumping to different butterfly bush flowers.  It went from one to the other so often that it made it difficult to capture the photographs.

In December 2014, I incorporated black swallowtail Butterfly photographs that I took during summer 2014 into my peace project.  The finished artwork for the Essex County 4-H Scholarship Awards is shown below.   

Finished artwork of the Peace comments from Essex County 4-H Scholarship Awards’ attendants on “What does Peace mean to you?” organized by Marissa Blodnik and Greg Walker on Saturday, November 15th, 2014 at Paul Robson Center, Rutgers University, Newark, New Jersey
