POSITRACTION: ‘Great Green Wall’ in Africa

2019-May-19

Dozens of Countries Have Been Working to Plant ‘Great Green Wall’ – and It’s Holding Back Poverty
By McKinley Corbley – Mar 31, 2019

*** begin quote ***

More than 20 African countries have joined together in an international mission to plant a massive wall of trees running across the continent – and after a little over a decade of work, it has reaped great success.

The tree-planting project, which has been dubbed The Great Green Wall of Africa, stretches across roughly 6,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) of terrain at the southern edge of the Sahara desert, a region known as the Sahel.

The region was once a lush oasis of greenery and foliage back in the 1970s, but the combined forces of population growth, unsustainable land management, and climate change turned the area into a barren and degraded swath of land.

After decades of political collaboration, the Great Green Wall project was finally launched by 11 countries in 2007.

The initiative has since recruited at least nine additional countries to plant drought-resistant acacia trees across the entire width of the continent. Though the wall is currently only about 15% percent complete, it has already dramatically impacted the participating countries.

Over 12 million acres (5 million hectares) of degraded land has been restored in Nigeria; roughly 30 million acres of drought-resistant trees have been planted across Senegal; and a whopping 37 million acres of land has been restored in Ethiopia – just to name a few of the states involved.

Sounds like a great idea.

Wonder if we could do it here in the USA?

Bury some of the Interstates with “animal migration overpasses” and it’s possible?

ENDNOTE: ‘Smart Meters’ are a ‘heart problem’?

2019-May-18

https://www.worldhealth.net/news/smart-meters-cause-changes-heart/

Smart Meters Cause Changes To The Heart
Posted on Apr 28, 2019, 5 p.m.

*** begin quote ***

Dr. Gilbertos Leon warns about this, saying these changes to the heart caused by smart meters are anything but symptomless or silent and major damages can take place without people even realizing it. Constant bombardment of microwave radiation from smart meters represents “and unnatural sequence of events we are not programmed to respond to… long-term exposure to smart meters can be extremely damaging to normal myocardial function.”

*** end quote ***

Well, we know that a microwave oven if it leaks can damage a pacemaker.  So why are we “surprised” that a microwave transmitter aka “smart meter” may have similar properties.

I’m sure our wise and powerful overlords, aka politicians and bureaucrats, will investigate if too many subjects are killed.  Till then “let them eat cake”!

Argh!

RODENBURG, GEORGE
May 12, 2019

RODENBURG, George Bartholomew, 92, died at home, surrounded by his children, on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, after several months of declining health.

George was born on December 4, 1926, in New York, New York, and was the eldest child of George Sjerp Rodenburg and Jennie Higgins Rodenburg. He grew up in Manhattan, where he rode his tricycle on the roof and played curb-ball, ringolevio and stickball in the streets. He attended Good Shepherd School and graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School. George enlisted in the United States Navy in 1944, just after his 18th birthday and served overseas for two years. After being honorably discharged, George returned to New York to attend college. He graduated with honors in 1948, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Manhattan College and, in 1950, received a Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Niagara University.

Afterwards, he accepted a job with Infilco and moved to Tucson, Arizona, where he met and married his beloved Kathleen. There, they started their family and eventually moved with the company to Richmond in 1971. George worked his entire career at Infilco, first as a Chemical Engineer and later as a Contract Manager.

George was a prudent, pragmatic man who spoke bluntly and loved his family and friends deeply. He was a devout Catholic, an active member of St. Joseph’s Parish in Richmond, Virginia, and belonged to the Ancient Order of Hibernians. He was a voracious reader, an avid Jeopardy fan, loved classical music and opera and collected anything related to Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. He had a great love for all things Irish, most notably his extended Higgins family, both here in the U.S. and across the pond. Shortly before his passing, while recalling good times and sharing a Guinness with his brother, Roy, he remarked, “It’s good to be Irish.”

George was preceded in death by his parents, George and Jennie Rodenburg; and his beloved wife of 56 years, Kathleen Brown Rodenburg. He is survived by his four children, Anne Rodenburg Schlicher, Monica Mary Durrette (Wyatt), George John Rodenburg (Jill) and Martha Jane Rodenburg; seven grandchildren, Sarah Anne Harvey (Ben), Heidi Schlicher Cook (Kevin), Robert Hans Schlicher (Taylor), Matthew Adam Schlicher, George Daniel Rodenburg, Kathleen Connor Quaine and Andrew Ray Rodenburg; three great-grandchildren, Hazel Joan Cook, John Harris Cook and Kinley Therese Cook; his brother, Ruurd Rodenburg (Rosemarie); nieces, Patricia Rodenburg, Kathleen Rodenburg Albert (Todd); nephew, Roy Rodenburg; cousins, Mary Higgins Clark, James McCormack (Virginia), Patrick Higgins (Rita), Gerard Higgins, John Higgins; their children, and a slew of much loved in-laws, nieces and nephews on his wife, Kathleen’s, side of the family.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, May 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Woody Funeral Home, 1020 Huguenot Road. A rosary service will be held at 5 p.m. prior to the visitation. A requiem Mass will be held Thursday, May 16, at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 828 Buford Road, a reception will follow. Burial with military honors will be held Friday, May 17, at 11 a.m. in Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia, 10300 Pridesville Road, Amelia, Virginia.
