To the eyes of an oceanographer, the image is pure catastrophe.

In reality, the rogue bag would float into a sewer, follow the storm drain to the ocean, then make its way to the so-called Great Pacific Garbage Patch - a heap of debris floating in the Pacific that's twice the size of Texas, according to marine biologists.
The enormous stew of trash - which consists of 80 percent plastics and weighs some 3.5 million tons, say oceanographers - floats where few people ever travel, in a no-man's land between San Francisco and Hawaii.

An international convention called MARPOL bans the dumping of plastics at sea, but enforcement on the open ocean is nonexistent.
“there’s no reason why a six-pack ring or a peanut butter jar should have to last for 400 years.”
“Plastic is not just an aesthetic problem,” says marine biologist David Barnes of the British Antarctic Survey. “It can actually change entire ecosystems.”
Mindfully.org note: The plastics industry should be made to be responsible for their products, byproducts, and waste throughout the lifecycle of the material. The creator should bear all liability. A great percentage of the plastic that Captain Moore has found is made up of preproduction pellets, called nurdles. We believe that if the industry were completely responsible for their products, that none would be made.

Kuever, a retired

Mr. Zhou's proposal, consequently, is not an attack on American hegemony, but it probably does express a worry in Beijing that China may have relied too heavily on the dollar. The rulers of China seem frustrated, uncertain what to do next.
Il est possible que les États-Unis serait mieux si le dollar a cessé d'être la principale monnaie de réserve.

Yes, the people have finally found a leader in whom he has confidence ... yet. En effet, les responsabilités syndicales n’ont pas les mêmes implications que des responsabilités politiques, et celles-ci ne sont pas assumées de la même manière, n’est-ce-pas Monsieur Domota. Indeed, the union responsibilities do not have the same implications of political responsibility, and they are not performed in the same way, do you Mr Domotique. Domota président ? Ce point d’interrogation peut devenir un point d’exclamation si le peuple guadeloupéen ne se retrouve pas dans les futurs débats et les prochaines candidatures proposés. Domotique President? This question can become an exclamation point if the people of Guadeloupe is not reflected in future debates and proposed future applications. Domota prétend s’engager pour le bien-être du peuple, alors si les conjonctures politiques et psycho-sociales ne permettent pas la consécration d’un Flémin, d’un Jalton, d’un Malo ou d’un joker, le peuple risque de le réclamer lui et pas un autre. Domotique claims commitment to the welfare of the people, so if the political and psycho-social does not enshrine a Flémin, a Jalton, a Malo or a joker, the people risk to claim him and not another. Mais Elie ne veut surtout pas s’impliquer dans les voies étroites et tortueuses de la politique, même s’il nous a donné l’impression qu’avec lui comme capitaine, notre bateau passera les bons caps sur les bons flots. But Elijah did not want to get involved in the tortuous and narrow lanes of the policy, even if we gave the impression that with him as captain, our ship will purchase caps on the good waves. Et puis Elie, devra freiner un peu beaucoup sur ses éventuels pulsions indépendantistes pour ne pas brusquer le peuple en tronquant son langage pour un discours plus digestes…afin de rassurer les ventres. And then Elijah, will slow a bit much on its possible independence impulses not to rush the people by truncating his language for a speech ... more palatable to reassure bellies. La Martinique a son Alfred Marie-Jeanne un peu ambigu, alors la Guadeloupe aurait son Elie Domota un peu roots. Martinique is Alfred Marie-Jeanne a little ambiguous, then it would Guadeloupe Elie Domotique some roots. Et la Pologne a eu Lech Walesa, le fameux syndicaliste qui est devenu le président de son pays. And Poland had Lech Walesa, the famous trade unionist who became president of his country. Walesa peut-il inspirer Domota ? Walesa may inspire Domotique? Domota, si le peuple te plébiscite ouvertement et fortement l’année prochaine, afin d’œuvrer pour le pays sauras-tu répondre encore présent au nom de l’intérêt général ? Domotique, if the people you vote openly and strongly next year to work for the country know you still respond on behalf of the general interest? Domota président ? Domotique president? Si la question devient effectivement une exclamation, un désir populaire, une confiance offerte, des espoirs à combler, un recours qui rime avec secours, un service à rendre, alors tu devras t’appliquer à toi-même ce que tu aimes dire aux autres : « Prenez vos responsabilités !

"But what exactly is going to ask the president Obama?
Public policies that we undertake to reduce consumption. This is the efficient cause of the problem we have here.
Two, stop the flow of arms into Mexico, because over 90% of those 30,000 weapons were purchased in United States. And the weapons are sold in the U.S. are arming the criminals who act against Mexico today but tomorrow it can act against the Americans.
Three, improving the logistics infrastructure of the border as non-intrusive technology to stop the trafficking of drugs into United States, but also to stop the smuggling of arms and money to Mexico which today has a timely and efficient review. And finally, logistic support, intelligence and information to help us catch criminals."
"I admit the statement said. In Mexico there is drug trafficking because there is corruption of some authorities and it is true that there have been and I'm fighting with everything. But I say the same logic, if this is true, the fact that there is drug trafficking in United States means that one of the reasons is that there is corruption in certain authorities. What I mean is to investigate both sides. I am cleaning my house and I hope that the other side also clean the house."

"El arte cubano es el secreto mejor guardado del arte contemporáneo internacional y trataré de hacer lo posible para que sea más conocido", aseguró Farber.
"We can also learn that if we do not have the necessary capacities in place, our food production system will be caught short, as was Cuba."
All over the world from New Zealand to the United Kingdom members of the Transition Town Movement, which aims to help communities prepare for the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change, hold regular screenings of the film, "The Power of Community", an upbeat documentary that explores the Cuban experience, alongside films about our oil addiction such as "The End of Suburbia" and "A Crude Awakening."
"Cuba inspires groups overseas wanting to develop alternative, more sustainable farming and food systems, partly based on the myth that has built up around Cuba being organic," says Wright.
"Organic farming in Cuba only operates in urban areas, not rural... [but] the Cuban organic movement and the people within it are highly dedicated to their work and will continue to influence and be influenced by the organic movement overseas." http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/americas/03/29/eco.cubaagriculture/
Big dreams, tough luck
If only we could learn a trade, say street men
BY PETRE WILLIAMS firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday, March 29, 2009
This is the final in a three-part series looking at the phenomenon of men and boys on Jamaica's streets.
Noel 'Toughy' Mattis dreams of becoming an engineer or a mechanic. Anthony 'Teddy' Davis and Dave 'Soldier' Johnson would simply like to learn a trade - any trade, just as long as it will take them off Kingston's tough streets where each day they strive hard to make a living.
"Mi woulda like learn a trade and all go a school," adds Soldier.
It's 8:30 pm on March 25 and Teddy is intent on selling the nine flowers in his hands. Their sale will determine, at least in part, how much money he will be able to give his mother for his two children.
When he's not selling flowers, he joins the hundreds of other men and boys who wipe motor vehicle windscreens in exchange for a few dollars, if they are lucky, each day. And when he's not doing that, he helps "a youth" sell newspapers.
MATTIS. when rainy time, mi haffi sleep inna water
"Mi nuh have nuh trade, a jus' this," the 38-year-old tells the Sunday Observer last Wednesday night. "It rough still; man thief all mi things," says the man who has been on the streets for more than half of his life, his eyes scanning the cars passing by Devon House in Kingston from where he operates.
Teddy notes that he is on the streets because he never learned a trade. That, and the fact that he hit the streets long before he should have.
"Mi did deh pon the street and thing, neva de go a nuh school. So mi family send me go a reformatory school," he recalls.
He was 15 years old at the time he was sent to the school in Mandeville, where he also learned to read.
He soon reminds the Sunday Observer that he must get back to selling his flowers.
"Mi haffi sell off dem flowers yah," he says softly, hurrying off into the distance with a slight limp.The harsh conditions of the streets lead Toughy to anger at times.
"Nuff a dem (motorists) nuh want give yuh a coppa (coin) much less a dollar (paper money)," says the 29-year-old. "Sometimes mi feel like mi would all lick the glass, but it would mek things worse pon miself."
He grew up in Allman Town, he adds, and has a five-year-old child.
"Life wicked," he laments. "When rainy time, mi haffi sleep inna water. Mi eye cyaan close when mi deh pon the road."
But while things may be hard, Toughy says the streets have saved him from the only other alternative - the gun - which by now would likely have led to his death.
"If mi neva find dis, a dead mi woulda dead," he says. "All a mi friend dem dead," he tells the Sunday Observer minutes to 9:00 pm on March 26. "A leggo mi leggo dem thing deh. Mi prefer ask than kill people."
Toughy says he served about seven of a 10-year prison sentence after killing the man - a friend and fellow teen gunman - who had killed his mother to get his hands on her money. He was 15 at the time.
"Mi di haffi murder the bwoy cold-bloodied. Di people dem seh 'Jesus Christ, yuh charge fi murder!'" he says animatedly.
Asked whether he regretted committing the murder, he said 'no'.
"Him dead and gone, so mi figet 'bout him," he says.
"If mi mother neva dead, mi wouldn't deh yah suh," he says, noting that he has a sister and brother who live abroad.
He says he has come a far way since prison and has cautioned other youths against the use of the gun.
"Gwaan talk 'bout unno a shotta and bus unno gun and lose unno life," warns the man who says he has been shot at least five times. "One time gone mi use to love the gun thing, but now mi know seh the gun thing nuh work out. The gun thing a serious thing."
Life on the streets, he adds, is no play thing and youths need to be clear on what they are getting into. However, he is quick to add that it is better to clean windscreens than to get involved in crime.
Soldier, who says he about 33-years-old, has been on the streets as long as he can remember.
"From mi little bit mi deh pon di road," he says, adding that he has an older brother who also makes his living on the streets. "Mi mother always tell mi nuh fi follow mi big brother and (instead) go school. But a pure follow friend mi follow friend and scull (stay away from school)."
Now, he regrets not having taken his mother's advice, as he reflects on going through life without a home.
"Life on the road rough. People see yuh and call yuh "waste man". Them call yuh "dog". Dem call yuh "faggot"," he says, adding that such labels make him ashamed.
Faced with such realities, he says he often drinks and has, on a few occasions, tried drugs.
"Mi try it more than one time, but mi nuh follow it. It just costable (costly)," he says. "When a man want it fi smoke and him cyaan get it, him sell all himself."

Hundreds of Walt Disney World employees were handed pink slips and escorted off the property March 26, Orlando Business Journal broadcast partner Central Florida News 13 is reporting.
Sources told the station that the layoffs involve from 400 to 800 people, but Disney officials would not confirm the number. Disney said layoffs are part of the restructuring announced last month.
Disney officials told the station the layoffs fall under three categories:
Restructuring back office operations in all parks and resorts.
Improving operational efficiencies.
A need for fewer positions because of falling demand at the parks and resorts.
The station reported the restructuring is not affecting union workers.
"Our members' contract provides guarantee on hours, job security and wage increases, so none of our members are affected by these changes," Unite Here Local 362 President Eric Clinton told the station.(THE SAME SOURCE)

The rigth to free internet in libraries, international communication, and to have opinion in the caribbean, for every citizen.
Depending on the Caribbean in small groups in power who decide our destinies in secret, never we can we speak about democracy for most,based on a public incommunicated, ignorant and misinformed by the frivolity of the local press, they never can be in the long run responsible governments in power that saves ours caribbeans countries from colonialism contemporary..
Verified by the history of the Roman Empire, the Soviet Union and the United States of America,today, corruption is able to erase a country from the map, and is, ultimately the internal(enemy) key player in psychology of colonialism, inequality, racism, discrimination against womans and homosexuals in public position and exploitation of any kind in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Corruption is the internal enemy of civil liberties,the politic power of labor unions and farmers and is the precipice of a nation because it encourages powerful elites TO MAKE decisions IN SECRET, secret AS THEY WISH BASED ON privileged families.
DEMOCRACY without access to the public data in order to protect a group of privileged families THAT CAN AFFORD FAX, INTERNET,PHONE WITH LONG DISTANCE AND ANY BOOK OR PAPER AROUND THE WORLD THAT THEY WANT TO READ WITH A NET OF international SPONSORS , usually white descendants of slave owners and still retaining the psychology of the operator of the system of finance and native's encomiendas AT THE TIME OF COLUMBUS.
In Latin America only 3% of the population has access to culture,INTERNET, and education based on a press frivolous and hypocritical that misinforms people as servants of his master voice, a mix of corrupt bureaucracies and inversionist able to pay any stupid information that can damaged the look of our countries, womans or institutions targeting young people as customer of unsuseful stuff of any kind
? Can overcome the Latin American left's syndrome imitating families privileged sources of corruption, discrimination of women, exploitation and puppeting, in the long run or short time, with colonialism and imperialismo?

|Jamaica worried about CARICOM-Canada free trade deal|
KINGSTON, Jamaica, March 27, 2009 - Jamaica's deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Dr Kenneth Baugh, has expressed concerns about the impact of the upcoming Caribbean Community (CARICOM)-Canada free trade agreement.
Speaking with Canada's Minister of International Cooperation Beverley Oda last week in Ottawa, Minister Baugh noted that Jamaica would be inundated with Canadian products as a result of the trade deal.
He said an impact analysis showed that opening up trade with Canada would be detrimental to the island unless a development component is included.
"We are small countries and we have to be careful how we enter into free trade agreements. What would make a big difference is technology transfer," Baugh is quoted as saying in a statement from the Jamaica Information Service (JIS).
He told Minister Oda that the transfer of technologies from Canada to Jamaica would assist the Caribbean nation in building capacities for processing, marketing, sorting, grading and packaging foods.
In response, the Canadian Minister, whose portfolio also includes the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), assured Dr Baugh of her country's commitment to the region.
"We are looking at what vehicles and structures to implement in order to build capacity in the region. Our challenge is to do what's best for the region and what's best for the countries, understanding that we cannot do everything for every country," she said.
Dr Baugh's trip to Canada ended yesterday.

It intends to honor nearly 3000m ², some 60 French and international artists, painters, sculptors, visual artists, videographers, photographers today who demonstrate through their works of the major issues that cross the worlds Caribbean Guyanese and the Indian Ocean. For 10 years now, we find that France is concerned about what the French identity. An identity number which seems to discover the reality of diversity. When I arrived at La Villette in late 2006, I decided that the theme of our 2009 season deal with these worlds Creole to provide the public with food for thought on this particular aspect of our society. But the draft Kreyol Factory because it is plural in the same time to demonstrate the richness and originality of contemporary artistic production often poorly known as far as to explore the links between France and its regions. Artistic production of contemporary Creole world is far from the folklore that is often associated. Thus, the artists we have chosen to present in Kreyol Factory interview questions but also on our western societies our relationship to history. In this case, it is more especially that of slavery, colonization and decolonization, which was carried out in different processes depending on whether of France or other countries we deal with. This story and these processes are clearly linked with major western countries have created corporate identities and some features are similar and others that are different and Kreyol Factory to offer a space of visibility. However, these issues might seem to lock ourselves into a debate about history, are a gateway to a subject of the hottest topics, globalization to which these companies offer the alternative of the creolization world. The processes of globalization tend to me to format the companies erasing the past and macaws differences, peculiarities, characteristics and ultimately, creativity. Those of creolization, in contrast, accept the complexity of the world and history, incorporate elements, feed, enrich, and encourage individuals to develop at a pace pus "metabolic" with presents to the mind the need to respect oneself, others and the diversity in the world. A world that should be permanently re. Aimé Césaire reminds us that "the map of the spring is still to be redone." This is called remain vigilant because each must find its place without having to alienate oneself or to abdicate a portion of what constitutes. CC1: This is a first, there will be a second? JM: I hope that the artists of our worlds Creole and more generally, of all French overseas are present, whenever possible, within our programming. However, I refuse the idea of locking them in moments that are exclusive and always put on the sidelines of major artistic movements which we witness at La Villette. There is no art in the world and another creation that would apply only to the worlds "Creole." No, there is a creation in the world who studied French Creole as creating any interesting large currents, aesthetic, thought and the artists themselves, whether in the field of visual arts, literature, film or live performance. We continue to see artists from overseas to Villette. But without doubt, more often than before. CC1: Creole, Creole, it tends to Paris, or is the emergence of a culture far less? JM: We see now that the realities Ultramarines or Creole emerging increasingly in the national debate, surpassing the exotic in which they were confined. These cultures and these islands are opening our eyes to continental expand their horizons. They invite us to rethink our conception of the world and the universal through a new approach and a new relationship to otherness. If this is a trend, it is encouraged. CC1: In Kreyol Factory, you go to crops that are not Caribbean, you do not fear the confusion? JM: It seems to me that this approach is able to inform the public about this reality apparently rather complex, sophisticated Creole cultures. They are the result of the bringing together of very different worlds together. These disparate elements is a unit within the individuals and companies they create. Highlighting the diversity and specificity of these elements, we want the public to understand this sophistication. CC1: How Guadelupian of "far", have you experienced the crisis of Guadeloupe and the LKP? JM: I was pleased to see that beyond the issues of purchasing power that it was quite urgent to meet the company guadeloupéenne raised substantive issues on the future of Guadeloupe. It expressed the wish of a more egalitarian society that takes into account and finally to overcome them, issues of class and race, and the right link to the story which forgetting and denial led abuse that were reported. Guadeloupe demand that its social and societal model is redesigned with new bases shared by all. The stakes are high, it suggests an equal opportunity based on merit and a definition of merit be decided jointly. This is nothing less than the issue of respect for each and every person in the prospect of living together that is at stake than this would be a purely regional. This crisis and its management speak French society as a whole at a time when the global crisis that has burst intimate us to rethink the rules of capitalism and free trade to make them less wild and protect us against their abuses. CC1: The highlights of this Kreyol Factory? JM: Kreyol Factory is a celebration of art and culture in a space where they interact with society. It is a contemporary art exhibition extraordinary, concerts, poetry, dance hip hop, drama, debates, readings. The discovery of an unsuspected wealth culture ... I think the Season créole de la Villette, in combining form and substance, is one of the highlights of the cultural year 2009 from France.
