Saving Ethiopia’s “Church Forests” | PLoS Blogs Network

There are some 35,000 church forests in Ethiopia, ranging in size from a few acres to 300 hectares. Some churches and their forests may date back to the fourth century, and all are remnants of Ethiopia’s historic Afromontane forests. To their followers, they are a sacred symbol of the garden of Eden — to be loved and cared for, but not worshipped.

Open space data can improve lives (and save birds)

BlackwaterThe spectacle of thousands of migratory birds is among the natural world's wonders. And the images of the Earth generated by NASA's network of weather satellites are among humanity's most breathtaking creations.

What happens when bird migrations are tracked using that advanced imaging technology and then mapped onto flight paths? Open government data leads to fewer bird strikes. That's of major interest to anyone who operates, flies on, or is otherwise associated with European air travel, given that the cost of bird strikes due to damage and delays for civilian aviation is estimated to be €1-2 billion.

I learned about this application of open data from Jeanne Holm, the former chief knowledge architect at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (she's since left to be communications and collaborations lead for Data.gov). Holm told me about FlySafe, a European Union initiative that's primarily led through ESA, the space agency.

"Space data is meant to help us understand the world around us," said Holm. "We share because people are asking for it and making a difference with it."

An international ontology for space data

Organizing space data -- such as that used to track bird migrations -- makes it more useful for all users, whether it's in military, scientific, commercial or academic use cases. A global community can collaborate and work more efficiently.

In the video embedded below, Holm told me about her work with the United Nations to create an "international ontology for space," which lets the global science community share open, linked data gathered from space missions.


Next week, Holm will be participating in the "Real Government in Virtual Worlds" discussion at the Gov 2.0 Expo in Washington, D.C.

@kitten, you are certainly acquainted with the  biergarden & restaurant Menterschweige - the fotograf you asked for and this one (both 20100424), with Solln - Siemenswerke  vis-à -vis - is done nearly at the same place at the eastern high banks from the Isar river.

Fotograf made during a bike tour 24th of April in south of Munich along the Isar high banks - today the river, which the day was still to recognize between the branches, wouldn't be to see any more. - oanth

Dear all (soup-users & @kitchen),

things are already going to recover and coming back to normal circumstances - at least I can post, repost, etc. in all directions again, and the RSS auto upload seems also to have restarted; I can't say to what extend for the moment, but the integration is on its way to come back to normal functionality - I helped myself still by manual activation, just to have faster results for the integration in my soup.

Concerning the notifications, I don't know how well they are doing up to the right moment, it's not yet observed enough. The login works for my soup without problems.

What remained obviously still unfixed is the mail service, what I feel as a sincere restriction for a certain kind of postings, which I am used to coordinate directly with my mail-client.

Thanks to the @kitchen for your precious time in maintaining the system to bring it back.


Best wishes for an agreable May sunday (evening)
with greetings from muc
