Nelson urges Trump administration to keep Florida Panther on Endangered Species…

first_img What a beauty lounging on the log! Looks so much like the pumas, the mountain lions, and the cougars. Keep the Florida Panthers on the Endangered Species List.

Bill Nelson, D-Fla., is the latest member of the Florida delegation calling on the Trump administration to keep Florida panthers on the endangered species list.With the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) reviewing keeping the Florida panther covered on the Endangered Species Act, Nelson wrote U.S. Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke on this issue this week.“I’m writing to update you on the current threats facing the endangered Florida panther, particularly habitat loss and vehicle collisions. As the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducts its review of the Florida panther’s Endangered Species Act listing, I strongly urge you to maintain the endangered classification and intensify efforts to preserve the Florida panther,” Nelson wrote on Tuesday. “Four decades ago, there were only about twenty panthers left in existence. Conservationists, federal researchers, and community leaders came together to develop a recovery plan that determines the panther population will be considered recovered when there are three established populations each consisting of at least 240 individuals.“Some good progress has been made,” Nelson added. “In March of this year, we celebrated a new milestone in the panther’s recovery when a female panther and her kittens were spotted north of the Caloosahatchee River for the first time since the species was listed in 1973.Florida Senator Bill Nelson.“Unfortunately, many of the original threats to the panther’s survival continue to pose a threat today,” Nelson continued. “In the last decade, at least 140 panthers were killed by cars. That’s about the same number of panthers as the size of the entire adult population today. Clearly, there is a need for additional resources to protect the panther from vehicle collisions. Wildlife crossings and roadway fencing are a tried and true way to do this while also preventing habitat fragmentation. I encourage you to work with the U.S. Department of Transportation and state and local governments to recommend and pursue new crossings. Additionally, the panther—like many endangered species in Florida—faces habitat loss from encroaching development. It is critical that future development effectively balances the panther’s needs.”Last week, U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., sent a letter to Greg Sheehan, the acting director of the FWS, urging the federal government to keep the Florida panther covered under the Endangered Species Act.At the end of 2015, Buchanan urged the FWS to designate a habitat for the Florida panther in a letter signed by fellow Republican then U.S. Rep. Curt Clawson and Democrats U.S. Reps. Kathy Castor, Ted Deutch, Lois Frankel, Alcee Hastings Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Frederica Wilson and then U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy.Back in 2013, there were 160 Florida panthers in the wild but current estimates have it as high as 180. As low as that number is, it was far worse in the 1970s when the population dropped to around 20. 3 COMMENTSlast_img read more

LYP House / Estudio BaBo

The project is located on a corner lot in a traditional Country Club in Pilar in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Despite the uniformity that these kinds of lots usually present, both regarding the physical characteristics, the landscape, and the area, a part from the corner position, the plot presents some peculiarities relevant enough to act as detonating to the main design. On one hand it is placed by the edge of the Club, and thereby has a double, 2.5 meter high fence completely filled by vegetation in the best orientation sun wise. On the other hand, across the road we find a public square, one of the few existing in the club apart from the general areas reserved for sports and leisure.Save this picture!© Curro Palacios TabernerRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornThe assignment consists of designing an isolated single-family house for a family of three. The intention is for the house to be used mainly for weekend stays and during the summer period, but it could be transformed into a normal residence in the future. The following program is thereby established; on one hand a public day area consisting of a hall, a combined living- and dining room, a toilette, a covered exterior terrace and a guest room or pavilion. On the other hand a private night area with a main bedroom with a private bathroom and two secondary bedrooms sharing a bathroom. Finally there is a service area with bedroom, bathroom, laundry room, technical room and a garage for two cars that also could be used as an informal play – room. The clients wish is to minimize the transitions between the different areas, and if possible, to solve the program on one single floor. The social areas are to be prioritized and emphasis should be put on creating a varied and fluid relationship between these spaces as well as between interior and exterior. Save this picture!© Curro Palacios TabernerAfter taking all of these variables into consideration the resulting project is a lineal piece covering the entire buildable length of the lot. It is placed parallel to the access road leaving a considerable area for the garden, which is left, directed to the north/northeast. All the main areas of the house are given a linear layout providing them with a view of the garden and giving the house a slim shape. The principal terrace with the incorporated grill is arranged tangentially to this piece, in the same way as the sun deck and the pool, following the same directives. This piece, is understood as a filter between the principal access street and the garden, establishing different levels of transparency, as be convenient, from the passage terrace who links directly and openly both areas (to facilitate the traffic to the grill, up to the denial of this relation in the guests’ pavilion (where a perpendicular link is established to this one, with to be / be and with another street). Save this picture!© Curro Palacios TabernerOnce the general disposition and the placement in the plot are proposed and considering the impossibility of solving the program on one floor, due to the low F.O.S., the decision that defines the volume morphologically and that leads to the solution of the section is taken: The three general areas of the program are linked together by semi levels. The day area and the night area are connected by a staggered ramp, of a more direct and fluid way, in the direction rose by the client. At the end of the terrace structure, the guests’ pavilion is executed in simple height, generating by this an entry for light from the west illuminating the central space. On the opposite side, the garage / playroom remains semi buried as the rest of the service area, sifting his relationship with the garden and establishing a relationship with the street. Save this picture!SectionThe implementation of these half levels to solve the program is reflected in the constructive – formal resolution of the piece. The facades are parted horizontally in tree parting from the interior situation, the need of breastworks and the size of the windows. The three resultant stripes are articulated tectonically, generating tension and mass: the windows are understood as the absence of these stripes. To keep the proposal within the planted logic, there are no intermediate columns; the stripes are considered structural elements, walls of reinforced concrete allowing them to cover large distances. The palette of materials is limited to the white painted structural concrete, promoting this way the texture of the wooden formwork and fulfilling the regulation of the particular area of the club. Windows are made in white aluminum, (double) glass and structures of wood as necessary sieves. All the walls are double with insulation and for the interiors plaster were chosen for the walls and granite mosaics for the floor of the ground floor and Guatambú wood for the top floor. The ceilings are made of concrete painted white.

He was charged under Articles 103 and 105 of the criminal code and sentenced to five years in prison for “subversion”.The charges related to articles Qi posted on the US-hosted site written by foreign-based dissidents about the Tiananmen Square massacre.
