Green grabs The dark side of the green economy


, : Green grabs The dark side of the green economy.

"Green grabbing" -- the rapidly-growing appropriation of land and resources in the name of "green" biofuels, carbon offsetting schemes, conservation efforts and eco-tourism initiatives -- is forcing people from their homelands and increasing poverty, new research has found. If market-based mechanisms are to contribute to sustainable development and the building of green and fair economies, then fostering an agenda focused on distribution, equity and justice in green market arrangements is vital.

To identify the minimum time necessary for consistent immunohistochemical estrogen receptor (ER) results in our laboratory, we evaluated results in timed fixation blocks and cases with disparate and similar needle core biopsy and partial mastectom...

We present and study a family of finite amplitude breathers on a genuinely anharmonic Klein-Gordon lattice embedded in a nonlinear site potential. The direct numerical simulations are supported by a quasilinear Schrodinger equation (QLS) derived b...

Here we report that transient treatment with lysosomotropic agents was not sufficient to block ALV subgroup B (ALV-B) entry, while it completely inhibite...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a rare infectious complication after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), but may be more significant in areas where the disease is endemic. Here, we present the clinical course of 2 children with acute lymphoblasti...

One of the proposed canonical circuit motifs employed by the brain is a feedforward network where parallel signals converge, diverge, and reconverge. Here we investigate a network with this architecture in the Drosophila olfactory system. We focus...
