From this position of privilege and allyship, but also these deeper commitments to prison rebels, I'm offering this strategic appeal to the Black Lives Matter movement, its allies, and anyone who cares to pursue a radical opposition to American white supremacy.

Tunisia is prone to serious depletion of water resources that is threatening the sustainable agriculture development especially the livestock sector. The current study aimed to measure water footprint (WF) and economic water productivity (EWP) of sheep meat within twelve smallholder farms in two different agro-ecological zones in Tunisia; humid in northern and semi-arid in central Tunisia. A year-round monitoring of on-farm practices was performed using water meters and recording equipment's...

Wildlife on sandy beaches is often constrained by transformation of natural areas for human use, and opportunities for acquiring or restoring new habitat are rare. Storms can often force changes in land use naturally by re-shaping coastal landforms, thereby creating high quality habitat; yet, wildlife requirements are seldom considered in post-storm recovery planning, and conservation practitioners lack suitable evidence to argue for the protection of habitats freshly formed by storms. Here we...

This paper employs panel methodological approaches to explore the link between per capita carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, per capita real gross domestic product (GDP), renewable energy consumption, and health expenditures as health indicator for a panel of 42 sub-Saharan Africa countries, spanning the period 1995–2011. Empirical results support a long-term relationship between variables. In the short-run, Granger causality reveals the presence of unidirectional causalities running from real...

It is generally assumed that coastal salt marshes are capable of adapting to moderately fast rising sea levels although local sediment availability crucially affects this capability. While there is an increasing awareness that local sediment availability is inherently related to sediment dynamics on the adjacent tidal mudflat, our current understanding of the interactions between salt marshes and tidal flats is very limited. To address this knowledge gap, we measured suspended sediment...

The study of environmental variables and their influence on the small pelagic fish stocks of the Alboran Sea (Western Mediterranean) is asymmetrical, with studies focused on the southern coast being scarce compared with those looking at the northern margin. In this work, time series of sardine landings from the Moroccan coast of the Alboran Sea from 1981 to 2016 were analyzed together with environmental variables such as Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Sea Surface Salinity (SSS), Surface...

Forage-livestock balance is important for sustainable management of alpine grasslands under global change, but the robustness of diverse algorithms for assessing forage-livestock balance is still unclear. This study compiled long-term (2009–2014) field observations of aboveground biomass (AGB). Using climate and remote sensing data, we evaluated the inter-annual dynamics of the forage-livestock balance on the Northern Tibetan Plateau (NTP). Here, we assumed that AGB dynamics in fenced...

Despite overwhelming scientific evidence, many members of the public remain skeptical about anthropogenic global warming. Hence, we examined how the presentation of factual scientific evidence affects lay evaluations of scientific claims. Taking inspiration from cognitive research on inductive reasoning, two studies examined the impact of evidential diversity on acceptance of claims in the domains of climate change and public health. Participants were presented with scientific claims based on...

Wild fisheries are declining due to over-fishing, climate change, pollution and marine habitat destructions among other factors, and, concomitantly, aquaculture is increasing significantly around the world. Fish infections caused by pathogenic bacteria are quite common in aquaculture, although their seriousness depends on the season. Drug-supplemented feeds are often used to keep farmed fish free from the diseases caused by such bacteria. However, given that bacteria can survive well in aquatic...

Although diurnal temperature range (DTR) is a key index of climate change, few studies have reported the health burden of DTR and its temporal changes at a multi-country scale. Therefore, we assessed the attributable risk fraction of DTR on mortality and its temporal variations in a multi-country data set. We collected time-series data covering mortality and weather variables from 308 cities in 10 countries from 1972 to 2013. The temporal change in DTR-related mortality was estimated for each...

The gap between certified and real-world passenger vehicle emissions is widening and has driven vehicle policy transitions in the US and in Europe, particularly in the wake of emissions measurement scandals. Since carbon dioxide emissions are highly correlated with fuel consumption (FC), fuel consumption regulation is a useful policy instrument to combat climate change. Although the Chinese government set fuel economy standards in 2004, like many countries it does not conduct testing to confirm...

Papers address the extent to which policy expectations related to climate change mitigation, energy security, rural livelihoods and risk mitigation have been achieved, and the effectiveness of public and private governance in advancing sector sustainability. Building on these...

Carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuel burning processes is quantitatively the most contributor to global warming. It is believed that climate change could be mitigated by means of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). CO2 physical adsorption separation has the potential of capture carbon dioxide with minimum energy costs. A special type of metal organic frameworks named Mg-MOF-74 is an exceptional adsorbent amongst other porous materials with high CO2 uptake at flue gas conditions. Temperature...

Application of oxy-fuel combustion carbon capture technology to power plants is currently getting special attention as one of the means of curtailing CO 2 emission responsible for the current climate change. The key concept of oxy-fuel combustion technology is the use of pure oxygen, obtained via air separation technologies, for combustion instead of air. Currently, the membrane separation technology is gaining high momentum due to its flexibility for different applications. Integrating oxygen...

Quantitatively, carbon dioxide is the main gas emitted from the burning of fossil fuels; thus, it is the primary contributor to global warming. However, climate change could be mitigated using “carbon capture and storage” (CCS) methods. CO2 separation by physical adsorption is a promising technology to achieve CO2 capture with minimum energy costs. Mg-MOF-74 is a distinguished adsorbent amongst porous materials owing to its high CO2 uptake under flue gas conditions. In this study, a vacuum...

No-tillage (NT) has been touted as one of several climate-smart agriculture (CSA) management practices that improve food security and enhance agroecosystem resilience to climate change. However, the sustainable effectiveness of NT greatly depends on trade-offs between NT-induced changes in crop yield and greenhouse gas (GHG, i.e. CH 4 , CO 2 , and N 2 O) emissions. Such trade-offs are regulated by climate fluctuations and heterogeneous soil conditions and have not been well addressed....

Vegetation in channels strongly affects flow structure and turbulence, with consequences on the hydrological storage of nutrients and chemical tracers, the shelter of stream biota as well as the trapping or transport of sediments. At the same time, all these phenomena are inevitably subjected to alteration of hydrological conditions in fluvial systems due to climate change. The present study intends to provide a thorough investigation into the processes of transport and dispersion induced by...

Playlists are a natural delivery method for music recommendation and discovery systems. Recommender systems offering playlists must strive to make them relevant and enjoyable. In this paper we survey many current means of generating and evaluating playlists. We present a means of comparing playlists in a reduced dimensional space through the use of aggregated tag clouds and topic models. To evaluate the fitness of this measure, we perform prototypical retrieval tasks on playlists taken from...
