The combination of procedurally generated challenges, realistic graphics and board-game-like straightforward rules. It is a challenging business simulation game with everything around cargo delivery. The player acts as a entrepreneur in control of a transport company. He needs to lay tracks on a difficult terrain, invent and buy new vehicles, project routes and compete against economical rules to make as much profit by transporting passengers and various cargo types as possible to beat other players score around the world. History: I loved to play all these tycoon games in my childhood and have no similar opportunity in these days. I started at university with procedurally generated landscapes, covered by simulated ecosystems with procedurally generated L-system vegetation. Having working landscape generator / renderer, I experimented with board game rules and simple terrain chunks to achieve combination of old fasion isometric game and fully 3D realistic environment. Extending my diploma thesis, I realise that there is a potential and since then, I worked hard to deliver the best game I could even imagine... Features: - Procedurally generated landscapes full of business opportunities, industry, towns. - Two modes: Isometric schematic construction view and 3D realistic mode for taking a ride in one of your transport vehicle. - Support for moders, customizable industries, vehicles, landscape types, vegetation etc. - 7 eras from steam age to modern maglev trains. Many research paths, building upgrades, stop customisation. Mashinky is a strategy game created by Jan Zeleny. The goal is to build your own transport imperium on a procedurally generated map. The game is unique combination of realistic graphics combined with an isometric construction mode and board-like game rules. A challenging business simulation game with everything cargo delivery can require. - Experience the addictive gameplay on an isometric grid based map where every change of a traffic layout is a rewarding puzzle. - Enjoy a realistic 3D landscape, ride one of your trains or just get mesmerized by the things you have built. - Invent new vehicles or buildings, extend or customize your transport imperium. Choose your own strategy based on current world opportunities. - See the evolutionary historic moments and grow your business through the ages. From simple steam to modern railways. From wood to superconductors. The player is an entrepreneur running his own transport company. He needs to lay tracks on a difficult terrain, invent and build new vehicles, define routes and compete against economy itself to make as much profit as possible. By transporting passengers and cargo. Inspired by the famous games from the 90s and especially by Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon. Mashinky aims to combine the best from 3D visualisation and addictiveness of the isometric gameplay. It all takes place on a procedurally generated world that acts as a sandbox with endless possibilities. Finding the best strategy is never the same. Every game is different. It's up to you to find the best opportunities, invent the most fitting vehicles, expand industries and improve your stations. It is up to you to adapt to the challenge.

But, if he'd known how the information had been obtained--if he'd known it had been guessed at by a discharged spaceport employee, and a paranoid personality, and a man who used a hazel twig or something similar--if he'd known that, he'd never have dreamed of accepting it.

Here be Dragons 2018: Track A
Sea monsters such as the kraken, prister, and rosmarus indicated uncharted territory on elaborate new maps of the world in medieval times. Despite many advances in mapping technology and data acquisition in the last 500 years, our ocean remains largely uncharted and poorly understood. Here be Dragons convened explorers, innovators, artists, scientists, and storytellers to identify the uncharted territories that still exist in ocean exploration and storytelling. In response, MIT students will work with explorers to develop and present collaborative projects to deploy new and emerging technologies in the field that address gaps in our understanding and sharing of the ocean. Select proposals will be funded for Rapid Field Deployments. In collaboration with the National Geographic Society and New England Aquarium.

Fenris isn't a hell planet, but it's nobody's bargain. With 2,000-hour days and an 8,000-hour year, it alternates blazing heat with killing cold. A planet like that tends to breed a special kind of person: tough enough to stay alive and smart enough to make the best of it. When that kind of person discovers he's being cheated of wealth he's risked his life for, that kind of planet is ripe for revolution. Chapter 1. The Ship From Terra - 00:00 Chapter 2.

What is CONSTRUCTED WETLAND? What does CONSTRUCTED WETLAND mean? CONSTRUCTED WETLAND meaning - CONSTRUCTED WETLAND definition - CONSTRUCTED WETLAND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A constructed wetland (CW) is an artificial wetland created for the purpose of treating anthropogenic discharge such as municipal or industrial wastewater, or stormwater runoff. It may also be created for land reclamation after mining, refineries, or other ecological disturbances such as required mitigation for natural areas lost to land development. Constructed wetlands are engineered systems that use natural functions of vegetation, soil, and organisms to treat different water streams. Depending on the type of wastewater that has to be treated the system has to be adjusted accordingly which means that pre- or post-treatments might be necessary. Constructed wetlands can be designed to emulate the features of natural wetlands, such as acting as a biofilter or removing sediments and pollutants such as heavy metals from the water. Some constructed wetlands may also serve as a habitat for native and migratory wildlife, although that is usually not their main purpose. The two main types of constructed wetlands are subsurface flow and surface flow wetlands. The planted vegetation plays a role in contaminant removal but the filter bed, consisting usually of a combination of sand and gravel, has an equally important role to play. Many terms are used to denote constructed wetlands, such as reed beds, soil infiltration beds, constructed treatment wetlands, treatment wetlands, etc. Beside "engineered" wetlands, the terms of "man-made" or "artificial" wetlands are often found as well. A biofilter has some similarities with a constructed wetland, but is usually without plants. However, the term of constructed wetlands can also be used to describe restored and recultivated land that was destroyed in the past through draining and converting into farmland, or mining. Ponds for wastewater treatment or water purification are not considered as constructed wetlands. They are referred to as stabilization ponds or treatment ponds, respectively. A constructed wetland is an engineered sequence of water bodies designed to filter and treat waterborne pollutants found in sewage, industrial effluent or storm water runoff. Constructed wetlands are used for wastewater treatment or for greywater treatment, and can be incorporated into an ecological sanitation approach. They can be used after a septic tank for primary treatment, in order to separate the solids from the liquid effluent. Some CW designs however do not use upfront primary treatment. Vegetation in a wetland provides a substrate (roots, stems, and leaves) upon which microorganisms can grow as they break down organic materials. This community of microorganisms is known as the periphyton. The periphyton and natural chemical processes are responsible for approximately 90 percent of pollutant removal and waste breakdown. The plants remove about seven to ten percent of pollutants, and act as a carbon source for the microbes when they decay. Different species of aquatic plants have different rates of heavy metal uptake, a consideration for plant selection in a constructed wetland used for water treatment. Constructed wetlands are of two basic types: subsurface flow and surface flow wetlands. Many regulatory agencies list treatment wetlands as one of their recommended "best management practices" for controlling urban runoff.

From Hierarchies to Networks - Collaborative Leadership for Government
California state government is undergoing a time of unprecedented change – major reorganization, deep budget cuts, and intense public scrutiny of decision-making. In this environment, traditional hierarchical structures may be less effective for building collective support for policy changes across diverse groups with varying political agendas. Collaborative leadership and policy making are critical skill sets for public employees, particularly executives and mid-level managers. You will have an opportunity to learn from Sacramento State University's Center for Collaborative Policy -- a nationally-recognized consensus-building organization working statewide on California's thorniest conflicts. Attendees will learn how to develop collaborative leadership competencies and how to apply them following a collaborative policy making method. You will also learn how to build networks and manage collaborative groups. Presenter: Dorian Fougères, Ph. D., Senior Mediator, Center for Collaborative Policy Dorian Fougères is a consensus-building practitioner with 14 years of experience in natural resource policy and management, including six years with the Center.

The Ecology of Dry Mixed Conifer Forests—What Makes Them Unique?
PRESENTERS Terrie Jain, Mike Battaglia, and Russ Graham - USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station DESCRIPTION Dry mixed conifer forests of the northwestern United States challenge ecological classification systems because of the diversity and complexity of the landscapes where they occur. Many contain ponderosa pine and a mixture of other highly productive tree species in the overstory and understory. They often mix with drier and wetter forests, creating a mixture of forest types quite unlike the expansive stands of comparatively pure ponderosa pine found elsewhere in the West. Widespread human settlement, timber harvesting, livestock grazing, fire exclusion, disease, and insects have shaped these forests. We will summarize the first four chapters of the synthesis and discuss how this information can be used in describing potential future conditions. Questions for our discussion may include: What are the key elements that need to be considered? Why is diversity of forest structures and compositions important? How do fuel treatments blend in with other disturbances in addition to wildfire?

Christopher Neill (WHRC) 1: Consequences of Amazon Deforestation
https://www.ibiology.org/ecology/deforestation-future-amazon/ Part 1: Consequences of Amazon Deforestation: Dr. Christopher Neill describes the dramatic changes in the ecosystem that have resulted from Amazon deforestation for agriculture. Part 2: Amazon Ecosystem Dynamics at the Agro-industrial Frontier: Dr. Neill studies the interface between agricultural land and forest to learn how to further prevent changes in the Amazon ecosystem. Talk Overview: The Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical forest on earth.  It absorbs vast amounts of CO2, and is large enough to impact local and global weather.  Dr. Christopher Neill describes the dramatic changes in the Amazon ecosystem that have resulted from deforestation for agriculture.  Forest fragmentation has caused more species extinction, more fires and increased concern about drought.  Neill ends his talk on a brighter note, pointing out that government intervention and modified agricultural practices have decreased Amazon deforestation by 75% in the past 10 years. In his second lecture, Neill and his group go to the Tanguro Ranch in the southeastern Amazon of Brazil.  The farm is at the interface between agricultural land and forest and provides a perfect area to study how expansion and intensification of cropping practices influence croplands watersheds, and the surrounding forest.  Neill’s research explores how to prevent further deforestation by intensifying agriculture on already cleared areas, and how to do this without increasing the environmental impacts to weather, air and water. Speaker Biography: Dr. Christopher Neill is a Senior Scientist at the Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) in Falmouth, MA.  Before joining the WHRC, Neill spent 4 years as Director of the Ecosystems Center at the Marine Biological Laboratory, where he was a scientist from 1996-2016 and retains a position as a Fellow. Neill investigates how changes in land use, such as increased agriculture or residential development, impact the surrounding ecosystems.  He works in the Amazon rainforest and in coastal regions of Massachusetts.  Neill was a Fulbright scholar in Brazil in 2007 and a Bullard Fellow at Harvard University in 2010.  Learn more about Dr. Neill’s research at his lab website: http://www.mbl.edu/ecosystems/faculty/neill/

Wheelwright Prize Lecture: Erik L’Heureux, “Hot & Wet”
Erik L'Heureux, 2015 winner of the GSD's Wheelwright Prize, presents insights from his two years of travel and research for his Wheelwright project, “Hot & Wet.” “Hot & Wet” traces five dense cities across the equator from the large mega-cities of Asia and South America to the mid-scale cities found in India and Africa. Each city confronts rapid population growth, increasing climate change, and extreme developmental pressures. The research follows architecture as a guide, framing the complex intertwining of atmosphere, climate, politics, and history at both the building and urban scale. From the recently burned Pasar Johar market by Thomas Karsten, to diminutive tower of Hassan Vogel, to the vestiges of Harry Weese, to the crafted Golconde Dormitory, and the stunning roofs of Vilanova Artigas, the “Grand Tour” of the torrid zone illustrates that architecture holds critically important agency in the transformation and aspiration of the equator. L'Heureux's Pencil Office works on mid-scale building projects that combine the challenges of density, urbanization and specifics of the equatorial city. Each project is driven by the atmospheres of passive ventilation, day-lighting, thermal comfort, and durability. A language of simplicity and material detail produce works of meaning and importance. Pencil Office’s design leadership is by Erik L’Heureux. Erik migrated to the equator from New York in 2003. Despite his cool climate background, he has built a thriving and productive practice, with a specialty working on projects throughout South East Asia. The Office for Equatorial Intelligence in parallel operates as the research wing of his design practice and as an extension of his love for the Equator.

ISTE 2016 keynote speaker Ruha Benjamin | Incubate a Better World in the Minds & Hearts of Students
“Teachers, if actually unified and empowered, can change the direction of history,” says Ruha Benjamin in this powerful keynote address at the ISTE 2016 Conference & Expo. Benjamin, a Princeton professor in the department of African American studies, specializes in the interdisciplinary studies of science, medicine, race, ethnicity gender, biotechnology, health and biopolitics. She envisions an education system that acts as an incubator for social change, and poses the question, “How do we make our schools laboratories of democratic participation, rather than sites where inequality is reproduced, where not only is the potential of each individual child realized, but where we're experimenting with technologies of love, of reciprocity and of justice.” She makes important points about adopting technology in the classroom. We must wrestle, she insists, with the parallel realities that today’s children face if technology is to become a tool to close the gap in educational opportunity and life outcomes. The goal is not to simply empower our student to succeed in the world of today, says Professor Benjamin, but to give them the tools and opportunities that will allow them to imagine and create alternatives to the current system and culture. Ruha Benjamin is an engaging and animated speaker who eloquently and successfully brings in examples as far reaching as Star Trek, nuclear testing in the Marshall Islands, code switching, Google searches, zero tolerance policies, and much more in order to build a momentum that will galvanize viewers. Watch the full keynote now and get inspired to transform society through the transformation of education. Want to get inspired and join a tribe of passionate, innovative educators like you?

The Story of America's Wild Horses and Burros
Released May 2012 - Produced by the Bureau of Land Management, this video helps us better understand how the BLM came to manage federally protected wild horses and burros on millions of acres of public lands across the West. Current and former BLM employees, historians, horse advocates, and others tell their parts of this continuing story. From the DVD Cover: The public lands of the Western United States are diverse, ruggedly beautiful, and majestic - as are the horses and burros that live there. These animals are born with the colors of the land upon them. The browns, blacks, reds, blues, dapple grays, and snowy whites all reflect nature's paint brush. Today, America's wild horses and burros are found in 10 western states. It is the BLM's responsibility to preserve and protect healthy herds of wild free-roaming horses and burros as components of the public lands. The Wild Horse Annie Act of 1959 and the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 gave wild horses and burros a legal right to live on public lands without harassment. The Adopt-A-Horse or Burro Program was initiated in 1973 to meet the challenges of balancing the health of public lands with the health of the wild horses and burros. To read about many adoption success stories, go to www.facebook.com/BLMWildhorseandburro.

At the Earth's Core by Edgar Rice Burroughs
David Innes is a mining heir who finances the experimental "iron mole," an excavating vehicle designed by his elderly inventor friend Abner Perry. In a test run, they discover the vehicle cannot be turned, and it burrows 500 miles into the Earth's crust, emerging into the unknown interior world of Pellucidar. In Burroughs' concept, the Earth is a hollow shell with Pellucidar as the internal surface of that shell. Prologue - 00:00 Chapter 01. Toward the Eternal Fires - 3:10 Chapter 02.

Fragmentation, Roads & Wildlife Corridors (Fall 2011, part 1)
This lecture covers the basic issues associated with roads and road kill. While there are many ecological impacts caused by roads, road kill is the most obvious factor and the easiest one to quantify. Here we discuss the proper context for thinking about road kill. This serves as the first introduction for my students enrolled in ESRM 313: Conservation Biology at CSU Channel Islands. All of my lectures are downloadable as free podcasts. This and other lectures can be found at my iTunesU site: http://itunes.apple.com/us/itunes-u/esrm-313-conservation-biology/id415881094

Talents, Incorporated by Murray Leinster
Bors felt as if he'd been hit over the head. This was ridiculous! He'd planned and carried out the destruction of that warship because the information of its existence and location was verified by a magnetometer. But, if he'd known how the information had been obtained--if he'd known it had been guessed at by a discharged spaceport employee, and a paranoid personality, and a man who used a hazel twig or something similar--if he'd known that, he'd never have dreamed of accepting it. He'd have dismissed it flatly!
