Good side of the story May 27, 2015

Yueyin,

Here's the good news story I was telling you about,

with KXAN video clip ...

Steve,

It’s certainly a good side of the story. In the past several years, our city government has imposed strict controls on water usage. We were only permitted to irrigate our lawns and gardens for a very limited time. The city would give a fine of several hundred dollars if any resident violates the rule.

The Cloud May 31, 2015

wherestip wrote:Mammatus clouds over Central Texas on Memorial Day


by Tim Psencik.



THE CLOUD
PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams.
From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,
As she dances about the sun.
I wield the flail of the lashing hail,
And whiten the green plains under,
And then again I dissolve it in rain,
And laugh as I pass in thunder.


I sift the snow on the mountains below,
And their great pines groan aghast;
And all the night 'tis my pillow white,
While I sleep in the arms of the blast.
Sublime on the towers of my skiey bowers,
Lightning my pilot sits;
In a cavern under is fettered the thunder,
It struggles and howls at fits;
Over earth and ocean, with gentle motion,
This pilot is guiding me,
Lured by the love of the genii that move
In the depths of the purple sea;
Over the rills, and the crags, and the hills,
Over the lakes and the plains,
Wherever he dream, under mountain or stream,
The Spirit he loves remains;
And I all the while bask in Heaven's blue smile,
Whilst he is dissolving in rains.


The sanguine Sunrise, with his meteor eyes,
And his burning plumes outspread,
Leaps on the back of my sailing rack,
When the morning star shines dead;
As on the jag of a mountain crag,
Which an earthquake rocks and swings,
An eagle alit one moment may sit
In the light of its golden wings.
And when Sunset may breathe, from the lit sea beneath,
Its ardours of rest and of love,
And the crimson pall of eve may fall
From the depth of Heaven above,
With wings folded I rest, on mine aëry nest,
As still as a brooding dove.


That orbèd maiden with white fire laden,
Whom mortals call the Moon,
Glides glimmering o'er my fleece-like floor,
By the midnight breezes strewn;
And wherever the beat of her unseen feet,
Which only the angels hear,
May have broken the woof of my tent's thin roof,
The stars peep behind her and peer;
And I laugh to see them whirl and flee,
Like a swarm of golden bees,
When I widen the rent in my wind-built tent,
Till calm the rivers, lakes, and seas,
Like strips of the sky fallen through me on high,
Are each paved with the moon and these.


I bind the Sun's throne with a burning zone,
And the Moon's with a girdle of pearl;
The volcanoes are dim, and the stars reel and swim,
When the whirlwinds my banner unfurl.
From cape to cape, with a bridge-like shape,
Over a torrent sea,
Sunbeam-proof, I hang like a roof,
The mountains its columns be.
The triumphal arch through which I march
With hurricane, fire, and snow,
When the Powers of the air are chained to my chair,
Is the million-coloured bow;
The sphere-fire above its soft colours wove,
While the moist Earth was laughing below.


I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.
For after the rain when with never a stain
The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.

Yueyin,

I agree. Austin is certainly ahead of the curve on these important environmental issues. Another good example on this front, is the city's ordinance of banning the use of single-use plastic grocery bags. BTW, on occasion I still forget to bring a reusable bag out of sheer habit, although the ban has been in effect for more than 2 years now.

环保及节省资源等问题 Jun 1, 2015

Steve,

不错,奥斯汀确实在许多方面都走在前列。不过许多其他城市和地区,也在迅速跟进。前不久我出去旅游时,在这方面也感触很深。美国还有一种很严重的浪费是纸张浪费。先不说五花八门的各种报纸、杂志及广告材料,光是各地的公共厕所,每年消耗的白花花的擦手纸,数量就很惊人。现在,很多地方的公厕都已改用再生纸或烘手机。

此外,很多国家公园为了减少污染、减少自驾车的进入,都设有免费的 shuttle bus。有些公园里的某些地段,则禁止自驾车驶入;游人必须把自己的汽车停在 visitor center 的停车场,然后乘坐公园的免费 shuttle bus 才能进入某些地段,如 Grand Canyon National Park 和 Zion National Park 等公园,就是如此。

Consumption of paper towels Jun 2, 2015

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_towel
Consumption of paper towels and other tissue products is highest in the United States of America at approximately 24 kilograms per capita, 50% higher than in Europe and nearly 500% higher than in Latin America.

http://collegeconservationefforts.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html
Figure one shows the number of trees consumed for paper towels per capita every year in America at 6.358 trees. This is extremely higher than the worldwide average of .8995 trees per person per year. Figure two shows the number of gallons of water consumed per capita every year in America and worldwide as a result of paper towel production. Americans on average consume about 3750 gallons of water per year while the worldwide consumption is about 529.107 gallons of water per person per year.

Parbuckle salvage Jun 3, 2015

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parbuckle_salvage
Parbuckle salvage, or parbuckling, is the righting of a sunken vessel using rotational leverage. A common operation with smaller watercraft, parbuckling is also employed to right large vessels. In 1943 USS Oklahoma was rotated nearly 180 degrees to upright after being sunk in the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia was successfully parbuckled off the west coast of Italy in September 2013, the largest salvage operation of that kind to date.

Steve,

至今还有四百多人被扣在船底下。我觉得有关方面应该放下架子,马上向有经验的国家和外国专家求援、请教,争取尽快把人救出来。多干实事,少作秀。即使船里还有一些空间,但空气中的氧气有限,且又处于受压状态。人在里面是坚持不了很久的。

Yueyin,

From what I've read and heard, it's an extremely difficult and dangerous task. Here's a CNN video clip with some expert opinions on what rescuers are facing...

http://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2015/06/02/china-search-survivors-cruise-ship-todd-dnt-tsr.cnn

Unfortunately, the outlook seems pretty grim.
