Mágica

Vivaldi translation: The magic of life happens when we quicken the good things within us. I repeat: the magic of life happens when we quicken the good things within us. You doubt? Daily, we bring to life the things that make our hearts beat. How many people live for living? For embracing the superfluous? There are those who live for different reasons, delicacy is one of them! It makes us grateful for the magic of what few eyes see in the darkness.

Good night!

A mágica da vida acontece quando vivificamos as coisas boas dentro de nós. Repito: a mágica da vida acontece quando vivificamos as coisas boas dentro de nós. Você dúvida? Diariamente, damos vida as coisas que nos faz pulsar o coração. Quanta gente vive por viver? Por abraçar o supérfluo? Há quem viva por diversos motivos, a delicadeza é um deles! Ela nos faz seres gratos pela mágica do que poucos olhos veem na escuridão.

Good night!

JET calls on the Government to honor its commitments not to mine Cockpit Country

The Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) is dismayed that after the Prime Minister’s announcement in 2017 of a boundary for the Cockpit Country Protected Area (CCPA) and his promise to close the area to mining, the Mines and Geology Division (MGD) has now announced a new Special Exclusive Prospecting Licencewhich at several points falls within the boundary of the CCPA and includes land belonging to the Accompong Maroons(Figure 1 and 2).

When Prime Minister Andrew Holness made the announcement on November 21, 2017, he explicitly said that bauxite mining would not be allowed within the CCPA boundary. He also stated that if any existing Special Mining Leases (SMLs) and…

Opinion | The Glasgow Deforestation Pledge Isn’t Enough to Save Our Forests – The New York Times

Protecting tropical forests can secure seven to 10 times as much carbon through 2050 as replanting forests. Saving the trees can also ease the crisis of species extinction. And protecting these forests is crucial to maintaining the homes and ways of life of thousands of forest cultures — people who speak as many as a quarter of Earth’s languages.

B.C. promises to consult First Nations before pushing ahead with old-growth logging deferrals | CBC News

The government announced Tuesday it has asked each nation in B.C. about deferring the logging of big, ancient and rare old-growth trees across 26,000 square kilometres of forests — an area more than 220 times the City of Vancouver.

“We are committed to working in partnership with First Nations to make sure we get this right and to supporting workers and communities as we develop a sustainable approach to managing B.C.’s old-growth forests,” said Katrine Conroy, the minister of forests, lands, natural resource operations and rural development.

The consultations are the latest step in B.C.’s lengthy process of updating its strategy to protect the province’s largest, oldest trees — some more than 1,000 years old — and the rich ecosystems on which they thrive.

Grateful

Politically Poetic

You didn’t heal me because of my great faith
We both know - my faith is always shaky.
You touched my weakened soul when I stretched my hand 
Your always steady strength shored me to safety. 

You show me mercy time and time again
Just like my father, embraced me with kindness.
Protect me like the most fruitful grain 
Even at times of my spiritual blindness.

‘People don’t know the Yanomami’: Q&A with filmmakers Davi Kopenawa & Luiz Bolognesi

After a dream, Yanomami shaman and great leader Davi Kopenawa began to reflect: television, cinema and all the images created and transmitted are an important part of white people’s culture. He concluded that it would be a good idea to make a film. “People from the city don’t acknowledge my people. The whites hadn’t been there yet to make a film for the big screen, so they could watch it. They can’t just look at cars, ships, planes,” Kopenawa says in an interview with Mongabay.

BLACK ROSE

Fire of Moods

of the little I have seen and heard,

this thing of man to me seem queer,

how quick they act to be dear to you,

and quicker they turn with jeers and boos.

this I know, men would sing your praise,

while you’re up they’ll seek your face,

once you’re down and light goes dim,

worthless him, valueless him shall be their hymn.

for each man it seems would be best alone,

since many are clay on hearts of stone,

“Jesus wept” itself has thus disclose,

he saw in man the buds- black rose.
