Animals on Camera, Water for Wildlife
 
07:56
Water for Wildlife, and the Pictures to Prove It In the middle of a desert, along the Rio Grande River, in the middle of nowhere, is Black Gap Wildlife Management Area. It’s here that you can find a surprising wealth of wildlife such as deer, bear, quail, mountain lion and desert bighorn sheep. But without water, none of these animals could exist here. So biologists build and maintain water catchment devises called guzzlers to help the wildlife. With the aid of game cameras, it’s amazing to see the variety of animals that benefit from the guzzlers.

Various of flooded fields STORYLINE: Tens of thousands of people were evacuated from their homes in Mexico on Wednesday after days of drenching rain caused extensive flooding and forced officials to close two US-Mexico border bridges, with yet another storm on the way. Mexican officials evacuated nearly 18-thousand people from houses in Ciudad Anahuac for fear that water would overflow the Venustiano Carranza dam and threaten lives. Mexico's National Water Commission said the dam currently had the largest emergency water release in the country. Houses and streets were flooded in the towns of Sabinas and Nuevo Laredo, while Ciudad Anahuac's mayor said at least 1,500 homes had been flooded in the town of Rodriguez across the Salado River from his city. Mayor Garza Garcia said 20 floodgates had been opened by late Tuesday at the Venustiano Carranza Dam, which was releasing 600 cubic metres (21,190 cubic feet) per second into the Salado River, a tributary of the Rio Grande. He described the situation as "critical" and said controlled flooding was necessary to avoid losing the entire town to the flood waters. Hundreds of people from Ciudad Anahuac and nearby villages fled on foot and had gathered by the side of the road, said one man who drove 16 people from Ciudad Anahuac to Nuevo Laredo. The mayor said soldiers planned to take food to those stranded. The dramatic rise of the Rio Grande caused by Hurricane Alex and continuing rains also forced the closure of one major border crossing between downtown Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and another crossing known as the Colombia Bridge. Officials evacuated the flood-threatened Vega Verde subdivision in Del Rio, Texas, some 110 miles (180 kilometres) upstream from Laredo, while high waters in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila have already damaged some 10-thousand homes - many swamped in waist-deep water. Governor Humberto Moreira told the Televisa network on Wednesday that 40-thousand people had nowhere to sleep. Also on Wednesday, a plane on an inspection tour of the flood zone crashed, killing the mayor of the border town of Piedras Negras, the state public works director, a municipal civil defence official, a government photographer and the pilot and co-pilot. The plane was flying over a rain-swollen reservoir about 25 miles (40 kilometres) east of Eagle Pass, Texas, when it went down, said a spokesman for the border state of Coahuila. Hurricane Alex dumped heavy rains on the region last week, causing flooding that killed at least 12 people in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, where Ciudad Anahuac is located, and leaving some 130-thousand people without water service. The US National Weather Service said a new storm was likely to make its way across the Gulf of Mexico and hit the region within a day or two.

If we don´t preserve it, all these population will be under threat in the future, a very serious threat in their survival conditions" 26. Zoom out from mountains to wide of waterfall in the park area STORYLINE: The people of Brazil's Rio de Janeiro state celebrated World Environment Day, on June, 5th, with the opening of a park that will preserve last area of the Atlantic Rainforest - Mata Atlantica - in the region. The Atlantic Rainforest covers 17 states on the Brazilian coast, from Ceara State in the North-Eastern Region, to Santa Catarina State in the South Region of the country. With the stroke of a pen Governor of Rio de Janeiro State, Benedita da Silva, created the "State Park of Three Peaks", with a total of 46 thousand hectares. In the past, Rio de Janeiro State had 97 percent of the Atlantic Rainforest - now, there is only 17 percent left to due to deforestation. To commemorate the creation of the park, the Governor also planted a Brazil tree - the plant that the country was named after - in the city of Cachoeiras de Macacu. It is one of five cities in the new park which have a total population of four million . When Brazil was discovered, five centuries ago, environmentalists estimate that the Atlantic Rainforest covered one million 360 thousand square metres. Now it is estimated that this only seven percent of that original area left. As man has laid claim to more and more of this huge country, the rainforests have gradually been disappearing. Shanty towns on the edges of cities have increasingly encroached on the forests and farmers burn huge areas to make way for crops. The creation of this new park is the result of 15 years of fight of the local residents and the NGO (non-governmental organisation) SOS Mata Atlantica. The Three Peaks Park is considered a "hot spot" for the bio-diversity in the country. Not only does it have the biggest water reservoir in Rio de Janeiro State which supplies some of the biggest Brazilian cities, it is also important because it is home to thousands species of fauna and flora that are under threat of extinction. Some of the species of fauna and flora can only be found in this park.

Optimizing Irrigation in New Mexico
 
33:09
In New Mexico, drought is a life and death situation for farmers and ranchers. Even irrigated crops fall well below yield expectations during years of severe persistent drought. It was the drastic droughts of the 1950s in this region that made water delivery one of the key engineering challenges in this state. But not all regions have adequate storage or water delivery systems. Water loss is high, simply in moving irrigation water down open canals for long distances. New Mexico State University is working with water users throughout the state to help improve efficiency and management of valuable water resources.

Partially submerged building 17. Varioous of flooded playground in park STORYLINE Workers in the US city of Fargo were racing against the clock on Wednesday to build dykes to protect their city against the rising waters of the Red River. The waters flowing over the river''s banks are threatening several homes, roads and parks. Fargo Concrete Superintendent David Johnson said teams of workers were bringing in clay from a pit north of the city to try to hold the waters back. He said they expected the water to reach its peak on Sunday. The river rose above 30 feet (9 metres) on Wednesday, considered the major flood stage, and is expected to crest at about 38 feet (11.5 metres). Hundreds of volunteers have spent the last few days packing and stacking sandbags and the National Guard has been keeping watch over the water levels. Now the residents of Fargo and neighbouring Moorhead, Minnesota must wait to find out if their efforts have been enough. Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker said he was optimistic the city was well prepared. Earlier in the week, the National Weather Service brought forward its prediction of when the water would reach its highest point. Officials expecting a crest in late March and early April were instead given six days notice after days of temperatures at or below freezing brought about a speedy snowmelt. Federal officials were in standby mode, working to complete plans for possible emergency rescues. At least nine airboats and two helicopters were on the way to the city. So were enough temporary beds, blankets, water and food for 20-thousand evacuees for five days, should it come to that, said the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Last year, about 100 homes in the area were damaged and thousands of people were evacuated after the Red River rose above the flood stage for a record 61 days and crested twice. Officials say they are better prepared this year for flooding thanks to early stockpiling of sandbags and the building of stronger levees across the region.

Baby sleeping in pram STORYLINE: Five neighbourhoods were evacuated early on Tuesday in the Mexican border city of Piedras Negras, a town already devastated by flash flooding, while emergency crews searched for those still missing after heavy weekend rains. The death toll rose to 34 people, city spokeswoman Marcela Aguirre said on Tuesday. Others were still missing. Many residents began burying the dead, while others returned to water-logged homes to see what they could salvage. President Vicente Fox declared a state of emergency, and Coahuila Governor Enrique Martinez called the flooding some of the worst in the history of the U.S.-Mexico border region, saying "the magnitude of destruction is enormous." Most of the homes affected by heavy rains late Sunday were on the southern side of Piedras Negras, a town of 200-thousand in Coahuila state, 240 kilometres (150 miles) southwest of San Antonio, Texas. About 100 homes were severely damaged or demolished completely, and thousands of people were living in makeshift shelters in municipal buildings. President Fox ordered soldiers to the area to aid in search and rescue efforts as well as begin the process of cleaning the destruction of flood waters, which carried away cars, light poles and the walls and roofs of homes and left the area littered with furniture and debris. Some neighbourhoods were without electricity, gas service and potable water, but Governor Martinez said basic services should be restored to much of Piedras Negras by Tuesday. The skies opened on Sunday night, unleashing heavy rains and swelling water levels by eight metres (25 feet) in the Escondido River, which flows into the Rio Grande. As the rain intensified, the Escondido poured over its banks, unleashing a wall of water that engulfed dozens of houses in Villa de Fuente, a working class neighbourhood of tin-roof shacks. By midnight, the flooding had spread to several nearby enclaves, forcing dozens of residents to scramble on top of roofs or climb trees and light poles. There they waited for hours for emergency crews. Flood waters receded by midday on Monday, and Fox toured the area, promising to continue search and rescue efforts. "The army and all local authorities are going to find every person whose whereabouts are unknown," the president said. A crowd of hundreds cheered Fox as he spoke at a gymnasium used as a shelter, where authorities distributed food, bottled water, blankets and mattresses.

Meathooked & End of Water (VICE on HBO: Season 4, Episode 5)
 
29:08
The world is addicted to meat: In developing countries around the world, diets are starting to look more like ours, incorporating more and more beef and pork. Massive factory farms are springing up to supply that demand. But industrial meat operations produce more than just cheap T-bones; they also dish out enormous environmental harm. VICE travels to the feedlots, farms and slaughterhouses where our meat is made, to see the true costs of our burger habit. Water is the single most vital resource we have -- but it's also one of the most threatened. Around the world, from the American West to China, South Asia and the Middle East, the water we need is simply disappearing. VICE reports from California's once-abundant farmland and the heart of São Paulo's reservoir system to assess the depths of the crisis, and what can be done to reverse it.

Klondike Alaska: A Rail History
 
01:29:30
For most people, railroads in Alaska and the Yukon are synonymous with the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass and Yukon Railroad whose passenger cars provide tourists with vistas of awe-inspiring terrain. That same terrain provided enormous challenges for early settlers of both territories. Railroads were an integral part of overcoming those challenges. Dozens of other railroads also laid track in Alaska, the Yukon, and northwest British Columbia and provided the means to transport supplies to settlements and to transport the region’s raw materials to outside markets. Klondike Alaska charts the history of many of those railroads. ©KUAC 2005 DVD's of this program are available for purchase at www.kuac.org.

Weird Borders: State Borders of the United States of America
 
10:17
Ever wondered why Michigan has two pieces? How about why Alaska isn't connected to the rest of the United States? The state borders are a lot weirder than they first appear, and often simple river borders will have crazy zig-zags that seem to arbitrarily cross the river. When rivers shape, borders don't, leaving states with strange pieces on the wrong side of the river. Some states like Oklahoma and West Virgina have bizarre panhandles, and Kentucky even has a part cut off my Missouri. Its a strange border situation called an exclave, which is when a part of a the state is only reachable by land through other states or countries. Virginia also has the eastern shore which is strangley is on the other side of the Chesapeake bay. Other bizarre borders include New York and New Jersey, where Liberty island and Ellis island are weirdly part of New York but are surrounded by New Jersey waters. Even stranger is that New York only owns a small peice of ellis island. The island was expanded, but the new land was over New Jersey borders, so it stayed new jersey. Leaving New York with a bizzare enclave on an new jersey island. Another weird border is that Delaware has some land on New Jersey's side of the Delaware river. This strange situation is because inside Delaware's 12 mile circle, the border is the high water mark of the river, so when the river was filled in the new land became Delaware.

EnviroCar - A GIS Framework for Citizen-based Environmental Monitoring in NYC
 
52:13
EnviroCar is a citizen science platform that utilizes GPS and automobile sensors to collect data on driving behavior. Speed, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are recorded, anonymized and then shared to EnviroCar’s cloud service for analysis by scientists and planners. Data from multiple users collected over time paint a detailed picture of traffic conditions in a city. Areas of high emissions, traffic jams, or other traffic flow issues can be identified. Thus the data can both inform traffic planning and augment emission data captured by stationary sensors. All software and data components of EnviroCar are open source and the data are available in various formats for mapping and analysis. Originally developed in Germany, CARSI is investigating the potential of expanding EnviroCar to New York City. (12/03/2014)

Venice Italy - Tour the Hidden Parts of Veneza Italia
 
05:12
Tour Some of the Hidden Parts of Venice Italy on our Venice Tour of Italy. Our Veneza Italia tour travel guide features some hidden parts of the city of Venezia, Italia as well of some of the mainstream Venice attractions. Venice highlights include the gardens of the Biennale Exhibition of Modern Arts, Palladio’s Church of San Pietro in Castello, the Naval Museum with a model of the Bucintoro (Doge’s Boat) and the Pavilion of Gondolas housing Peggy Guggenheim’s own vessel. Venice Guide The Veneto, the mainland province around Venice, takes its name from the Veneti, the pre-Roman inhabitants of the region. The region bore the brunt of fierce and destructive barbarian attacks that began in the 4th century. Fleeing the Goths, the people of the Veneto sought refuge among the wild and uninhabited islands of their marshy coast. Building on a patchwork of more than 100 low-lying islands in the middle of a swampy lagoon they formed villages and the city of Venice rose in 421 AD. By the 13th century Venice ruled Byzantium. At its height, Venice was one of the greatest military and commercial powers on earth. In population it was four times the size of Rome and London combined. In 1508 the Pope, the kings of France and Spain and the Holy Roman Emperor joined forces to stop the advances of this powerful empire. Venice Tour Video Although her expansion was halted, the city of Venice continued to dominate the eastern Mediterranean for another 200 years. In 1846 Venice lost its isolation when a causeway joined the city to the mainland and the Italian rail network. The region's architecture, paintings and way of life reflect the splendor of Venice and the impact she had on the world. In addition to being home to magnificent art and architecture, Venice and the Veneto are laced with an exceptional network of navigable canals and waterways. In the lagoons and canals of Venice, one sails past colourful waterfront houses, under Renaissance bridges and close to magnificent historic sites such as St. Mark's Cathedral. Known to Venetians as Canalazzo, the Grand Canal weaves its way through Venice's six districts or sestieri following the course of an ancient river bed. The two-mile-long Grand Canal serves as the city's main thoroughfare. Its average depth is 9 feet and the width varies from 120 to 228 feet. On its borders are some of the finest palaces of the Republic Our Cruise in Venice, Italy When it comes to river cruises, Italy is a country seemingly designed to host them. Its beautiful canals and rivers pass through diverse landscapes and nature en route, from picturesque lagoon islands with their colourful houses, to wild beach dunes and pine woods with an abundance of birdlife. These waterways were once the ancient trade routes used by the Romans and the early Mediterranean settlers before them, and cruises around Italy are perfect for gaining a real insight into the many cultures - including Roman, Etruscan, Istrian, Byzantine and of course Renaissance - which have influenced the arts, architecture and history of the region over many centuries. Throughout the season the 20 passenger La Bella Vita provides Italian river cruises that encompass the romance and architecture of Venice as well as the captivating lakeside setting of the Renaissance city of Mantua. Venice is, of course, the crowning jewel of most Italian river cruises, but Mantua, in central northern Italy, has also been (and still is) a hub of art, culture and music for centuries. The route inland takes you along the River Po and the Bianco Canal through the Po Valley. Delicious seafood, local culinary specialities, fine wines and attentive service complete the experience of this fairytale adventure, and explain the appeal of our boutique Italian river cruises. Luxuriating in a friendly and relaxing boat environment, travellers have an opportunity for a unique perspective on some magnificent Italian cities. La Bella Vita is a stylish twenty-passenger vessel offering comfortable, fully air-conditioned accommodation. She has two upper deck junior suites and eight lower deck staterooms, all offering en suite facilities, and a bright, spacious dining room and bar area where delicious Italian specialities will be served. Louvre doors open to the side to give a perfect view. Above, there is a huge sun deck with comfortable loungers to relax on with a drink and a good book, or just watch the world go by. What is hotel barging? Despite the growing popularity of cruising, especially on large river vessels, hotel barging is still a little known niche concept. Most hotel barges started life as cargo vessels but have since been painstakingly converted to offer luxury boutique accommodation for small groups of up to 20 passengers. Guests enjoy an intimate atmosphere, high levels of personal service and immersion into the culture, history and gastronomy of regions. *Music by Daze Audio - https://soundcloud.com/dazeaudio

50 INCHES of RAIN POSSIBLE for South Texas & Louisiana from TS Harvey
 
05:32
Remember when I told the people you can't build a wall because of the coming floods? Remember how I have been warning you about the pattern shift in the Ocean? Well. You'll probably believe me more in the next few weeks. This has the possibility of being super catastrophic. God bless everyone, T @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.com/thornewsgo https://www.paypal.me/THORnews Harvey to threaten Texas, Louisiana with major flooding Depending on the track and speed of Harvey, enough rain may fall on portions of Texas and Louisiana to bring the risk of major flooding from Friday to early next week. Through Friday, Harvey will travel over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. Harvey regained tropical depression status on Wednesday midday and is expected to become a tropical storm. The system has the potential to become a hurricane before making landfall somewhere along the Texas coast late Friday or Friday night. There is some uncertainty about the exact point of landfall at this time as a non-tropical system may block Harvey's path as it nears the coast. Well ahead of Harvey's arrival, rip currents along the western and central Gulf coast will increase in number and strength. Whether Harvey makes landfall as a strong tropical storm or a Category 1 hurricane may not make a huge difference in terms of impact. While increasing winds, building seas and rough surf are not to be taken lightly prior to Harvey making landfall, the main threat to lives and property from Harvey will be from flooding. The potential for major flooding exists along much of the Texas coast to portions of central and northeastern Texas. Depending on Harvey's exact track, flooding is possible in portions of Louisiana as well. Preparations for flooding and displaced people are warranted at this time. There is the potential for Harvey to slow and stall over Texas or right along the northwestern Gulf coast. If Harvey stalls, between 10 and 20 inches of rain could lead to a flooding disaster. "There is the potential for significant flooding in the region, even if Harvey remains weak," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski. Some cities, such as Houston, may not be able handle a moderate amount of rain in a short period of time without some urban flooding problems. The concern would be for not only flash, urban and coastal flooding, but also major river flooding. Should Harvey venture ashore along the upper Texas coast, there may be less of a flooding threat for the lower Rio Grande Valley that encompasses part of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. A storm that tracks farther north is also likely to be stronger and produce more wind impacts because it has more time to spend over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. "In addition to flooding and rough surf, the rotation around Harvey may also produce short-lived tornadoes to the north and east of the center of the storm," Kottlowski said. A reasonable amount of rain, on the order of 2-4 inches (50-100 mm), would be beneficial from an agricultural standpoint. This amount of rain can occur if Harvey remains poorly organized and keeps moving along into the south-central United States. While rainfall has been close to average near the Texas coast, portions of the lower Rio Grande Valley have received less than 25 percent of their average rainfall since June 1. Rainfall from Houston to Corpus Christi and San Antonio, Texas, has averaged between 50 and 60 percent of normal since the start of June. Late this week and this weekend, motorists should be prepared for delays and possible road closures. Beachgoers may have to postpone activities. How far inland drenching rain spreads will depend on how quickly Harvey weakens as well as on the path of the system. During next week, there is the risk of torrential rainfall to spread eastward and northeastward over the South Central states. As a result, all interests from northeastern Mexico to the western and central Gulf coast states should monitor the progress of Harvey.

How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory
 
22:20
"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

The Middle East Problem
 
05:40
The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know. In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how, since that auspicious day in 1948, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.  Donate today to PragerU! http://l.prageru.com/2ylo1Yt Joining PragerU is free!

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: When I did my graduate studies at the Middle East Institute at Columbia University’s School of International Affairs, I took many courses on the question of the Middle East conflict. Semester after semester, we studied the Middle East conflict as if it was the most complex conflict in the world -- when in fact, it is probably the easiest conflict in the world to explain. It may be the hardest to solve, but it is the easiest to explain. In a nutshell, it’s this: One side wants the other side dead. Israel wants to exist as a Jewish state and to live in peace. Israel also recognizes the right of Palestinians to have their own state and to live in peace. The problem, however, is that most Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs, do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist. This has been true since 1947, when the United Nations voted to divide the land called Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews accepted the United Nations partition but no Arab or any other Muslim country accepted it. When British rule ended on May 15, 1948, the armies of all the neighboring Arab states -- Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Transjordan, and Egypt -- attacked the one-day old state of Israel in order to destroy it. But, to the world’s surprise, the little Jewish state survived. Then it happened again. In 1967, the dictator of Egypt, Gamal Abdel Nasser, announced his plan, in his words, “to destroy Israel.” He placed Egyptian troops on Israel’s border, and armies of surrounding Arab countries were also mobilized to attack. However, Israel preemptively attacked Egypt and Syria. Israel did not attack Jordan, and begged Jordan’s king not to join the war. But he did. And only because of that did Israel take control of Jordanian land, specifically the “West Bank” of the Jordan River. Shortly after the war, the Arab states went to Khartoum, Sudan and announced their famous three “No’s: “No recognition, no peace, and no negotiations,” What was Israel supposed to do? Well, one thing Israel did, a little more than a decade later, in 1978, was to give the entire Sinai Peninsula -- an area of land bigger than Israel itself, and with oil -- back to Egypt because Egypt, under new leadership, signed a peace agreement with Israel. So, Israel gave land for the promise of peace with Egypt, and it has always been willing to do the same thing with the Palestinians. All the Palestinians have ever had to do is recognize Israel as a Jewish state and promise to live in peace with it. But when Israel has proposed trading land for peace -- as it did in 2000 when it agreed to give the Palestinians a sovereign state in more than 95% of the West Bank and all of Gaza -- the Palestinian leadership rejected the offer, and instead responded by sending waves of suicide terrorists into Israel. Meanwhile, Palestinian radio, television, and school curricula remain filled with glorification of terrorists, demonization of Jews, and the daily repeated message that Israel should cease to exist. So it’s not hard to explain the Middle-East dispute. One side wants the other dead. The motto of Hamas, the Palestinian rulers of Gaza, is: “We love death as much as the Jews love life.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/middle-east-problem

50+ Inches of Rain in Texas & LA - TS Harvey Models keep increasing Totals
 
09:09
The models are having a hard time nailing down where this storm is going and the projected overall rain totals continue to increase. Governor Greg Abbot has called for a State of Emergency in 30 counties & begun to close schools. So that is good. I will keep you posted. God bless everyone, T https://www.paypal.me/THORnews @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.com/thornewsgo Harvey to threaten Texas, Louisiana with major flooding Depending on the track and speed of Harvey, enough rain may fall on portions of Texas and Louisiana to bring the risk of major flooding from Friday to early next week. Through Friday, Harvey will travel over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. Harvey regained tropical depression status on Wednesday midday and is expected to become a tropical storm. The system has the potential to become a hurricane before making landfall somewhere along the Texas coast late Friday or Friday night. There is some uncertainty about the exact point of landfall at this time as a non-tropical system may block Harvey's path as it nears the coast. Well ahead of Harvey's arrival, rip currents along the western and central Gulf coast will increase in number and strength. Whether Harvey makes landfall as a strong tropical storm or a Category 1 hurricane may not make a huge difference in terms of impact. While increasing winds, building seas and rough surf are not to be taken lightly prior to Harvey making landfall, the main threat to lives and property from Harvey will be from flooding. The potential for major flooding exists along much of the Texas coast to portions of central and northeastern Texas. Depending on Harvey's exact track, flooding is possible in portions of Louisiana as well. Preparations for flooding and displaced people are warranted at this time. There is the potential for Harvey to slow and stall over Texas or right along the northwestern Gulf coast. If Harvey stalls, between 10 and 20 inches of rain could lead to a flooding disaster. "There is the potential for significant flooding in the region, even if Harvey remains weak," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski. Some cities, such as Houston, may not be able handle a moderate amount of rain in a short period of time without some urban flooding problems. The concern would be for not only flash, urban and coastal flooding, but also major river flooding. Should Harvey venture ashore along the upper Texas coast, there may be less of a flooding threat for the lower Rio Grande Valley that encompasses part of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. A storm that tracks farther north is also likely to be stronger and produce more wind impacts because it has more time to spend over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. "In addition to flooding and rough surf, the rotation around Harvey may also produce short-lived tornadoes to the north and east of the center of the storm," Kottlowski said. A reasonable amount of rain, on the order of 2-4 inches (50-100 mm), would be beneficial from an agricultural standpoint. This amount of rain can occur if Harvey remains poorly organized and keeps moving along into the south-central United States. While rainfall has been close to average near the Texas coast, portions of the lower Rio Grande Valley have received less than 25 percent of their average rainfall since June 1. Rainfall from Houston to Corpus Christi and San Antonio, Texas, has averaged between 50 and 60 percent of normal since the start of June. Late this week and this weekend, motorists should be prepared for delays and possible road closures. Beachgoers may have to postpone activities. How far inland drenching rain spreads will depend on how quickly Harvey weakens as well as on the path of the system. During next week, there is the risk of torrential rainfall to spread eastward and northeastward over the South Central states. As a result, all interests from northeastern Mexico to the western and central Gulf coast states should monitor the progress of Harvey.

USA: MEXICAN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FACE DEATH IN TEXAS DESERT
 
03:00
Eng/Spanish/Nat Every year, thousands of Mexicans illegally cross into the United States in search of a better life. But with the border areas of Texas and Arizona experiencing a terrible drought and scorching temperatures, the journey has cost some of them their lives. In less than two weeks, U-S border patrols have recovered the bodies of ten Mexicans who died during their gruelling journey. Highway 77 runs from the Mexican border into the U-S state of Texas. With temperatures well over one hundred degrees fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius), it is certainly an uncomfortable ride for drivers. In the harsh scrub alongside the road, the situation is much worse. For thousands of Mexicans, this scorched terrain is their best hope to avoid border check points and illegally immigrate into the United States in search of a better future. But heat and dehydration have taken a terrible toll. Within just two weeks, border patrol agents recovered the bodies of ten Mexicans who died here - many of them next to empty water bottles. Exhausted by the temperatures and the lack of water, these three men decided to give up and to surrender to the border patrols. SOUNDBITE: "In all likelihood they got left behind, and in some instances the group will try to drag them along, and unfortunately they get left behind when they can't carry them anymore." SUPER CAPTION: Tom Slowinski, Border Patrol Agent The refugees, trying to escape a desperate economic situation in their home country, often pay professional smugglers most of their life savings. Five hundred U-S dollars per head is the price for a stab at a new beginning in the United States. But the conditions of their gruelling journey are often desperate. To avoid the heat, many smugglers are moving their human cargo at night and with little provisions. Sometimes, the trip can take an entire week - on foot. And with the use of modern heat seeking cameras, border patrols are capable of capturing the refugees even at night. UPSOUND: "... They're running now.... you just passed some..." These Mexicans have just lost their hope for a better future. But border patrol agents say they are lucky to be alive. SOUNDBITE: "We have a special operation, and it's called Operation Lifesaver. And what we're doing is we're making sure that all our vehicles have plenty of water, we're trying coordinate our enforcement efforts at peak times of the day to round all the people up before the heat of the day, we're trying to check all trains that come in this direction, because some of the trains have people locked in the box cars, smugglers have locked them in..." SUPER CAPTION: Tom Slowinski, Border Patrol Agent Frightened of snakes, many exhausted Mexicans sleep between railway tracks to avoid the animals. This year, eight people were killed because even oncoming locomotives couldn't wake them. And clinging to the sides of trains, many more keep coming. Those who are spotted by the guards jump off and run from the patrols - but without any supplies it's unlikely they get very far. However, even those caught think it is worth the risk. SOUNDBITE: "Yes, we do risk our lives. But, when you look at the situation now in Mexico - no jobs. In Mexico, they pay you very little and you can't live. So you are forced to come here to get work and a better life in America. What can you do?" SUPER CAPTION: Mexican Refugee The Sarita border patrol alone returns between three and four thousand Mexicans each month to their country. And despite their frustration, it is a fate better than death in the scorching heat of the Texas desert.

ALERT! DANGER! Stationary Storms to FLOOD Texas & Gulf Coast
 
08:41
Tropical Storm Harvey is a deadly and damaging rainmaker. God bless everyone, T @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.cpm/thornewsgo articles on storm Harvey to threaten Texas with flooding rainfall to end the week "We expect Harvey to redevelop and gain some strength over the western part of the Gulf of Mexico spanning Wednesday to early Friday," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski. Heavy rain, gusty thunderstorms and rough surf are to be expected in coastal Texas and northeastern Mexico as Harvey approaches. The main threat from Harvey is likely to be flooding. The path, strength and forward speed of Harvey will determine the amount of rain, wind and rough surf over northeastern Mexico and Texas. There is the potential for Harvey to stall over Texas. If this occurs, then the risk of major flooding will increase with upwards of 10 inches (250 mm) of rain possible in some locations. "There is the potential for heavy rainfall and significant flooding in the region, even if Harvey remains weak," Kottlowski said. From 10 to 20 inches of rain could lead to a flooding disaster, but that could happen if Harvey stalls. The concern would be for not only flash and urban flooding, but also major river flooding. Should Harvey travel farther north along the Texas coast, heavy rain and the risk of flooding will correspondingly expand northward along the Gulf coast to perhaps Louisiana. A storm that tracks farther north is also likely to be stronger and produce more wind impacts because it has more time to spend over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. A reasonable amount of rain, on the order of 2-4 inches (50-100 mm), would be beneficial from an agricultural standpoint.

Mompox, Rio Magdalena Sur Bolivar, Costa Caribe Colombia - Como viajar, que visitar ?
 
08:44
Santa Cruz de Mompox o Mompós está situada en el norte de Colombia, en el sur del departamento de Bolívar en el interior de la Costa Caribe. También llamado “la sabana Caribe”, es una de las más bellas joyas de la época colonial. Mompox hace parte del patrimonio cultural religioso, colonial e histórico de Colombia y fue declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO. Es un destino poco conocido y escondido en la sabana del caribe en medio de la depresión momposina que une el Rio magdalena y el Rio Cauca. Tiene la particularidad de estar rodeada de agua, esto se debe a que se encuentra en una isla en el interior del río Magdalena. Es una ciudad religiosa por excelencia y ha mantenido intacta su arquitectura colonial. Mompox es el lugar donde nació la cumbia y en dónde Gabriel García Márquez encontró parte de su inspiración para crear su magnífica obra literaria Macondo. Un poco de Historia... Mompox fue Fundada en 1537, por Don Alfonso de Heredia (hermano de Pedro de Heredia, fundador de Cartagena). Descendiente de los indios Malibues, Mompós o Mompox debe su nombre a cacique indígena «Mompoj » cuya tribu habitaba en el lugar donde existe hoy la ciudad. Mompox fue más delante un importante centro donde se enviaban a los condenados por blasfemia, herejía u otros. Los jesuitas presentes en la ciudad crearon el colegio de San Carlos, un centro cultural y filosófico para los jóvenes de la ciudad. Es durante esta época que la ciudad se especializó en la orfebrería. De hecho, la calidad de las joyas ha atraído a muchos visitantes a lo largo de la historia. La ciudad ha sido un núcleo entre todas las cofradías religiosas que venían para hacer comercio. Mompox era el segundo centro comercial después de Cartagena, y estaba más protegida contra los piratas del Caribe. Mompox estaba idealmente situada sobre la ruta entre los Andes y Cartagena. ¿Qué ver en Mompox? Hoy en día la orfebrería sigue siendo una fuente de ingresos importante para la ciudad, con la pesca y el turismo aun cuando no está muy desarrollado, lo cual hace de Mompós un destino auténtico y fuera de lo común. De hecho, el centro de la ciudad conserva su arquitectura colonial y fue declarado en 1995 patrimonio de la humanidad por la UNESCO. Pasando por la calles de San Francisco o San Miguel, todavía es posible admirar el trabajo de los maestros de la orfebrería tradicional de filigrana. Los principales atractivos de este destino a parte de su centro histórico y religioso son: Paseo en canoa por La Ciénaga de Pijiño y El río Magdalena, para observar la variedad de aves, fauna y flora característica de la región, ¿Cómo viajar hasta Mompox? Lo más común es viajar a Mompós desde Cartagena por vía terrestre. Este trayecto comprende una parte terrestre hasta Maguangué y desde allí es necesario viajar en barco o en chalupa navegando sobre el río Magdalena para llegar hasta la ruta que nos lleva hasta Mompóx. Mompós - Cartagena: 248 km / 7 horas, Mompós - Santa Marta: 8 horas. La carretera está en mal estado y es larga hasta Santa Marta. Una parada en el pueblo de Aracataca es ineludible a la hora de viajar en coche. Es el pueblo natal del escritor Gabriel García Marquez y es posible visitar en este lugar el museo creado en su honor.
