China and a Global Green System of Innovation by Professor Dora Marinova
 
52:27
http://humanities.curtin.edu.au/ The evidence provided by the science of climate change has triggered heated political discussion and a variety of economic measures aimed at reducing humanity's ecological footprint. New sustainable technologies, including renewable energy, are paving the way for community values to encourage greater sustainable behaviour. This lecture focuses on China's contribution to the environmental state of the planet, including its commitments to decarbonising its economy. For China to play an active role in a global green system of innovation it must become a leader in major institutions including the development of education, public participation and governance. This lecture will outline why it's unlikely that China will fulfil this role based on adopting a Western Consumerist society, as well as provide a suggested approach for China, to focus on building balanced strategies that are representative of long-lasting Chinese cultural values. The Speaker: Dora Marinova is a Professor of Sustainability and Deputy Director for the Curtin Sustainability Policy Institute (CUSP). The CUSP centre was established in January 2008 and is headed by Professor Peter Newman. Professor Marinova has a background in engineering, science and mathematics; and she has a particular interest in new technologies for sustainability. She has written numerous journals for more than 200 publications. The Humanities Inaugural Professorial Series: The Inaugural Professorial lecture is a British academic tradition extending back several centuries whereby professors would deliver a public lecture on their current research projects. A growing number of faculties and universities in Australia and elsewhere are now renewing this tradition as a means of introducing professors and their research to a wider audience within and beyond the university. The Faculty of Humanities takes pleasure in becoming a part of this trend by establishing its Inaugural Professorial Lecture series as a public forum for the dissemination of its research activities Curtin University's Faculty of Humanities Inaugural Professorial Lecture presented China and a Global Green System of Innovation on 22nd November 2011.

Novel Visualisation Technologies with Paul Bourke
 
45:01
http://hgso.curtin.edu.au/ http://www.ivec.org/ Paul Bourke presents some of the current technologies which were initially developed to solve visualisation problems in other academic disciplines - but are now being employed throughout the Humanities. The presentation focusses on data capture, and the presentation aspects of the projects. Capture techniques include ultra-high resolution of digital imaging in archaeology, 3D reconstruction from photography for the recording of heritage objects and 360 degree video capture in cultural heritage. Presentation technologies focus on methods which fully engage the human senses such as immersion, visual acuity and the sense of touch . Paul Bourke is the Director of the iVEC facility at UWA. He's also a visualisation researcher providing support and expertise to researchers within the university and to the other iVEC partners. During Bourkes career he's worked in organisations where he concentrated on architectural, brain/medical, and astronomy visualisations. Of particular interest are novel data capture and display technologies and how they maybe used to facilitate insight in scientific research, increase engagement for public outreach and education, create immersive environments and enhance digital entertainment

Sri Lanka Parliament MP Harin Fernando on Colomobo Port City
 
15:19
#SriLanka #SriLankaParliament MP #HarinFernando criticized Govt on proposed project Colombo Port City (cost US$ 1400 million) and Land Act. I think his critic has both pros and cons. Pros: 1. ColomoPortCity is good project to elevate image of Colombo and good for tourism and business investment 2. Cleaning Colombo environment by relocating people 3. Eliminating crimes and improving safety of people 4. Upgrading people's living standards 5. Organizing city for future needs: minimizing traffic jam, organized transport and access for work, shop, office, adding more opportunities for entertainment industry including Casino and prostitution. (Our traditional needs will be changed). Cons| 1. Yes such a huge project has not called for tenders therefore doubts of corruption 2. People are not well informed Watch this video on you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTSzhsYae_E Related post: Economic and Social benefits from Colombo Port City project http://www.dailynews.lk/political/parliament-19 Sandasen Marasinghe and Irangika Range Leader of the House, Irrigation and Water Resources Management Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva told Parliament yesterday that the proposed Colombo Port City project, a USD 1,400 m foreign direct investment, would bring about numerous economic and social benefits to the country. Responding to a special statement made by UNP and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in Parliament on Wednesday (5), the minister said that after the end of the conflict, requests from private investors seeking permission to commence businesses in the commercial capital Colombo had increased. New land was needed to develop the Colombo city without displacing the people already living there. It is difficult to find such extents of land from a single location. In many countries there are business establishments near the ports. That lacuna has been covered by the setting up of a trade centre by the name Colombo Port City near the harbour, in the newly reclaimed land. The total cost has been estimated at around 1,400 million US Dollars and it would be invested as a foreign direct investment. As to the question whether the government had followed proper tender procedures in handing over the contract to build the Colombo Port City, the minister replied that the particular investment was a business proposal by the investor, that protocols to be followed on such occasions had been followed, and there was no need of calling for tenders. For such foreign investments, there was no need to follow the tender procedure. The former UNF government of which Wickremesinghe was the Prime Minister had permitted such ventures without following tender procedures, the minister said. The project would increase the land extent of the country by 233 hectares and the investor would be given 20 of them while the rest of the land would be acquired by the government. The land extent would be open to investors to construct an international hotel complex, a housing and shopping complex, modern offices, international conference facilities and a yacht centre. It would attract at least USD 20 billion worth investments. The project had been studied and assessed for its environmental and archaeological impact by the Coastal Conservation Department, Central Environment Authority, Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Department, Sri Lanka Land Reclamation and Development Corporation, Geological Survey and Mines Bureau and the Department of Archaeology. These institutions have given their approval for the project. - See more at: http://www.dailynews.lk/political/parliament-19#sthash.4fwwJDL0.dpuf

Enugu, coal city of Nigeria - Festour
 
04:17
It is located in southeastern Nigeria. The city has a population of 722,664 according to the 2006 Nigerian census. The name Enugu is derived from the two Igbo words Énú Ụ́gwụ́ meaning "hill top" denoting the city's hilly geography. The city was named after Enugwu Ngwo which coal was found under. Since the 17th century the location of present day Enugu has been inhabited by the Nike (/niːˈkeɪ/ nee-kay) subgroup of the Igbo people; one of Enugu's neighbourhoods still retains the village's old name Ogui. In 1900 the Southern Nigeria Protectorate was established by the colonial administration of the British Empire. The discovery of coal by the colonialists led to the building of the Eastern Line railway to carry coal from the inland city to the port of Port Harcourt, a city created for this purpose located 151 miles (243 km) south of what was called Enugu Coal Camp. Enugu was then renamed simply Enugu and developed as one of the few cities in West Africa created from European contact. By 1958 Enugu had over 8,000 coal miners. As of 2005 there are no significant coal mining activities left in the city.

Western Australia | Wikipedia audio article

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Western Australia Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

It is bounded by the Indian Ocean to the north and west, and the Southern Ocean to the south, the Northern Territory to the north-east and South Australia to the south-east. Western Australia is Australia's largest state, with a total land area of 2,529,875 square kilometres (976,790 sq mi), and the second-largest country subdivision in the world, surpassed only by Russia's Sakha Republic. The state has about 2.6 million inhabitants – around 11% of the national total – of whom the vast majority (92%) live in the south-west corner, 79% of the population living in the Perth area, leaving the remainder of the state sparsely populated. The first European visitor to Western Australia was the Dutch explorer Dirk Hartog, who visited the Western Australian coast in 1616. The first European settlement of Western Australia occurred following the landing by Major Edmund Lockyer on 26 December 1826 of an expedition on behalf of the New South Wales colonial government. He established a convict-supported military garrison at King George III Sound, at present-day Albany, and on 21 January 1827 formally took possession of the western third of the continent for the British Crown. This was followed by the establishment of the Swan River Colony in 1829, including the site of the present-day capital, Perth. York was the first inland settlement in Western Australia. Situated 97 kilometres (60 miles) east of Perth, it was settled on 16 September 1831.Western Australia achieved responsible government in 1890, and federated with the other British colonies in Australia in 1901. Today its economy mainly relies on mining, agriculture and tourism. The state produces 46% of Australia's exports. Western Australia is the second-largest iron ore producer in the world.
