In Afghanistan a quest to save the snow leopard

first_imgThe organization has helped create some of Afghanistan’s first “protected areas” — places of particular biological importance, where the environment remains pristine. In Bamiyan province, one of them now draws thousands of domestic tourists every year. In the Wakhan, biologists say, hundreds of square miles of nearly unpopulated grassland present another opportunity to preserve something wholly unique in Afghanistan. Already, one protected area there has been formalized.“Wakhan is well worth protecting for the sake of Afghanistan’s natural and cultural heritage,” Simms said.The last time conservation was discussed in the Wakhan was in the 1970s, when King Zahir Shah opened a luxury hunting lodge for Western visitors. Now, posters of Afghanistan plastered in embassies abroad bear the photos of the new parks, unspoiled wilderness that the country is eager to promote.Zahir Shah’s grandson, Mustafa Zahir, is now the head of the country’s nascent National Environmental Protection Agency, overseeing conservation efforts.“There’s no place in the world like this,” he said on a recent visit to the Wakhan.But the future of Afghanistan’s protected areas is as uncertain as the country’s fragile political or security situation, and the work of conservationists is still incomplete. Snow leopard pelts can still be easily purchased in downtown Kabul. Last year, a border police commander stole a wild Marco Polo sheep from the Wakhan and tied him to a tree in his front yard.Karmal knows all about the challenges facing his own job and the cause he’s come to champion. But he’s still proud of what he’s done, tracing the footsteps of the species he knows well.“It’s important work,” he said. “This is a population that matters to us, and to everyone.”© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Comments With fighting still heated a year before U.S. forces are due to withdraw from Afghanistan, wildlife conservation is no doubt a peripheral concern to most U.S. and Afghan officials. But in addition to its scientific importance, the effort is at the forefront of concerns here in the Wakhan, where the Taliban is nonexistent. The preservation campaign is a source of jobs, pride and occasionally, conflict.If the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), the only source of Western funds in much of the Wakhan, loses financial support as the war winds down, dozens of wildlife rangers will lose their jobs. If hunters again prevail over conservationists, the trickle of foreign tourists could abruptly dry up.With the U.S. Congress due to determine its financial pledge to Afghanistan this fall, the future of the wildlife effort remains uncertain. Karmal knows that this summer could be his last time hunting snow leopards without a gun.He says he won’t return to shooting the animals — that the notion of conservation resonates with him. But other residents of the Wakhan don’t share his commitment. Environmental protection, they say, often feels like an imposition on a traditional way of life.Last year, a snow leopard leapt into Hassan Beg’s corral and slaughtered 12 of his sheep — a massive blow to his family’s livelihood in a place that measures wealth in livestock. He wanted to shoot the animal, to save his sheep. Fifteen years ago, that’s what he would have done.“But now, I knew I’d be arrested. I knew the conservation people wouldn’t allow it,” Beg said.He isn’t the only one conflicted about the rare animals. In the village of Qal-a-Panja, many residents complain about snow leopard attacks. Jama Gul lost six sheep and four goats. Faizal lost three sheep and a goat.The men say they value the corridor’s snow leopards, but in a place where survival can be difficult, they’re entitled to do what’s necessary to keep their animals alive. Residents sometimes clash with the newly initiated Afghan conservationists, as they did in a recent meeting.“Wildlife Conservation Society is helping the snow leopards survive, but they’re very dangerous. They’re killing our animals,” Faizal said.“They are killing your animals because for decades you hunted all of their prey. They have nothing else to eat,” responded Hafizullah Noori, a research assistant with the conservation society.The split between the two groups exists in some form wherever the WCS has worked in Afghanistan. But the biologists say it’s typically not a big problem.“We see a bit of this, but really, looking across the six years I’ve been in Wakhan, it’s insignificant and on the whole there’s very good support for conservation,” said Anthony Simms, a technical adviser for the conservation society. “This can be demonstrated by the fact, for example, that there’s virtually no hunting these days.”WCS has done research showing that snow leopard attacks account for less than 0.1 percent of yearly livestock losses in Wakhan.

Courtesy of Wikimedia Commonscenter_img WAKHAN, Afghanistan — Two decades after he first aimed his rifle at one of the world’s rarest mammals, Karmal was again on the hunt for the elusive snow leopard.Stalking through the mountains of northeastern Afghanistan, he was getting closer. There were paw prints in the sand and scratch marks on the limestone boulders, signs that the leopard was marking its territory. Karmal knew it could be anywhere, peering down at him from an unseen bluff. He moved quietly.But this time, Karmal wasn’t carrying a gun. He held a metal snare that he would use to trap the animal. He was working for an environmental conservation organization attempting to better understand one of the most vulnerable species in the world. After Karmal caught the animal, it would be tagged with a GPS collar and tracked as it traversed Afghanistan’s hinterlands.When the Taliban was toppled nearly 12 years ago and U.S. forces surged into Afghanistan, a small number of biologists saw an opportunity on the margins of the war effort. The country’s far reaches had barely been examined and were thought to contain some of the world’s least understood species. But studying them would require complex, and sometimes tense, negotiations with some of the world’s most isolated people.“It was like a black box,” said biologist Christopher Shank, who worked in Afghanistan in the 1970s and returned after the fall of the Taliban.When they arrived in the Wakhan corridor, scientists learned that local hunters had targeted snow leopard, ibex and Marco Polo sheep populations. The foreign experts met men like Karmal, who killed the animals for their pelts, for food or simply for sport.But when the scientists set up motion-sensor cameras to gauge what kinds of animals remained, they were shocked. Persian leopards still lurked in the mountains of central Afghanistan, a fact no biologist had surmised. Snow leopards had endured in the Wakhan, possibly becoming one of world’s most vital populations of the species.The biologists received funding from the U.S. government to set up small camps in the remote corridor and to hire wildlife rangers who would help monitor and protect the species of the Wakhan. That’s how Karmal ended up hunting snow leopards with a GPS collar instead of a gun.“It still feels strange sometimes,” said Karmal, who uses one name, like many Afghans. “But it’s my job, and I like it.” When the Taliban was toppled nearly 12 years ago and U.S. forces surged into Afghanistan, a small number of biologists saw an opportunity on the margins of the war effort.

Musicians play to set record atop Himalayan peak

But that record was broken two years later.Guinness World Records credits Musikkapelle Roggenzell, 10 musicians from Germany and Bolivia, who scaled Mount Acotango in Bolivia to perform at 6,069 meters (19,911 feet).Guiness is awaiting the evidence before verifying if the new performance set a new record.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Local porters helped carry their three guitars, small amplifier fitted with speakers, microphones and a stand.

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL — A year ago, Patrice Laliberte was on the verge of abandoning his film career and starting down a more stable path.“I was going to work in video games or something else, I didn’t know. I was thinking, ‘How am I going to even pay for Christmas presents?’ “With a fistful of dollars from a commercial, the 32-year-old Montrealer decided to give film directing a final go, hunkering down to tweak a script about a group of survivalists in the frigid Quebec outback.“It was a very desperate time. If this project didn’t work, I would have quit for good,” he said.Ten months later he found himself meeting with a Netflix representative in a downtown Toronto hotel lobby.“At some point we asked, ‘So, do we know when we might have a green light or not?’ And she just extended her hand,” Laliberte recalled, smiling.“She said, ‘If it wasn’t 11 a.m. we’d be popping champagne.’ “Laliberte, an upstart director with no full-length credits to his name, is part of the small film-making team selected to make the first Netflix original feature film out of Quebec. It’s the latest development of a pledge by the global television powerhouse to spend $500 million over five years on Canadian productions, a number Netflix recently said it will exceed.Welcomed by some as a boon to a subsidy-dependent film industry, the announcement in September 2017 was not without controversy, particularly in Quebec. Then-federal Heritage minister Melanie Joly drew criticism for opting not to require the California-based company to charge sales tax on its subscriptions, as its domestic competitors are required to do.Netflix also sidestepped the rules that apply to the country’s broadcasting companies, landing outside regulations to funnel a portion of their revenues to the creation of Canadian programming. It did agree to shell out $25 million on a strategy to develop the francophone and cultural minority market, but avoided any contractual obligations to do so.“Netflix is a particularly puzzling and difficult company in terms of adapting Canadian policy to actually capturing this new business mode,” said Rosalie Wyonch, a policy analyst at the C.D. Howe Institute.Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission regulations require broadcasters to air a certain percentage of Canadian content. Netflix, however, doesn’t control the amount of content that gets streamed — its subscribers determine that daily.Whether Netflix should pay into the Canadian Media Fund, as the country’s cable and satellite distributors are required to do, is similarly fuzzy, Wyonch said, since the company has claimed it would not have access to the fruits of that fund.Ottawa launched an expert panel last June to review broadcasting and telecommunications laws, with an eye to including Netflix in cultural funding requirements. An interim report is due in June 2019.Current rules also allow streaming services that do not maintain a physical presence in Canada to avoid collecting or remitting federal or provincial sales taxes.The European Union, Australia and Japan have all levelled the playing field among foreign and domestic digital service providers, taxing them similarly. Quebec is on track to do likewise in January, slapping a provincial sales tax on any purchases from Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and other online services based abroad.“The key question is, would this movie have been made anyway, without the no-tax deal with Ottawa?” Wyonch said. “Netflix is a global company. French is not exactly a small language.”Netflix produces films and television shows in more than 20 countries, dubbing and subtitling them as part of a content budget of between $12 billion and $13 billion, Wyonch said. That beats HBO’s expenditures several times over.Helene Messier, head of an association that represents 150 independent Quebec production companies in film, television and online, called the Quebec announcement “excellent news” — with a qualifier.“I hope it’s an indication of many more contributions. I think that we won’t know until a few years from now,” she said. “But I think that they understand our market and what our creative people have to offer.”For Laliberte and the six-year-old Couronne Nord — a Montreal production house whose name refers to the off-island suburbs where he and his two-colleagues grew up — the arrival of Netflix offers a “really refreshing” alternative to the go-to sources of funding in Quebec, primarily the SODEC funding agency and Telefilm Canada.“It’s a game-changer in Montreal,” said Guillaume Laurin, the film’s 28-year-old content producer.“Private funding doesn’t exist; it’s not in the cultural mindset. And the market is so small. It’s not like in the United States, where everything is privately funded.”The filmmakers aim to evoke the province’s “nordicite,” roughly translated as “northernness.”“We’re living six months a year in this, and it’s rarely appearing on screen,” Laliberte said. “For me, since college it was a dream to make films in a winter landscape.”Laliberte, creatively inspired by the nationalist rhetoric and “end-of-the-world” conspiracy theories mushrooming on social media, said he hopes to draw on work by directors from Terrence Malick to Stanley Kubrick to evoke the paranoid mindset and militaristic lifestyle of a survivalist camp.“With climate change or with economic situations, people start to have fear…fear of the other,” said Laliberte, who won the Toronto International Film Festival award for best Canadian short film with “Overpass” in 2015.“It’s not a chill, Netflix film,” he said, joking that the working title is just that: “Netflix film.” Quebec gets its first Netflix original film amid tax, cultural content concerns Guillaume Laurin and Julie Groleau of Couronne Nord, a small Montreal production house are seen in Montreal on Tuesday, November 20, 2018. The film company has been selected to create the first Netflix original feature film out of Quebec.

Fixing the IP issue is also no simple manner While China needed foreign cash early in its economic liberalization and development in the 1980s and 1990s for the last decade the country has been financially buoyant Since then the very point of foreign investment has been to engineer IP transfer which is generally done by forcing foreign firms to partner with local Chinese entities essentially enabling those entities to pilfer IP Western firms have been so desperate to access the Chinese market that they agreed to operate under those terms and are now paying the price "One guilty party in all of this are US firms themselves many of whom have actively assisted in ‘voluntary’ technology transfer through joint ventures in order to access China’s domestic market" adds Baptist As such addressing the IP issue would involve China changing the entire way it interacts with foreign investment And while leveling the playing field is a noble goal in itself the question remains whether volatile markets and falling profits across the US economy are a price worth paying to get there "Does the US have a plan to actually pursue and at least partly win this trade war I don’t see that"

Charlie Campbell at charliecampbell@timecomAs Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government completes four years in office there may be a few things it can be proud of but such is the problem of hype in Indian politics and bureaucratic continuity in Indian administration that you can easily mistake a branding initiative to be a breathtaking new achievement That is precisely the problem with the Digital India initiative There are some things to be lauded but separating them from the hype buzzing around can be a statistician’s nightmare Beneath all that stand two questions: How do you separate the work of a new government when what it does is essentially a continuation of what an ousted government was doing How do you judge progress where a new initiative has been achieved but a profusion of data exists more to confuse us than enlighten us Then there are fundamental philosophical questions that emerge in a global context where the Internet is linking all of us into a shrinking interconnected world: What is the government’s job supposed to be where it claims benefits for the nation How much openness or nationalism should it embrace in a context where digital initiatives are part of an inexorable global technological revolution IT and Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has just written about a whole load of Digital India achievements under his NDA administration claiming "employment entrepreneurship and empowerment" But a harder look at what he has written shows that three Es he talks about substantially reflect three Cs: Continuity coverage and cover-up Here’s how When he talks of Aadhaar the controversial national identity number scheme it must be remembered that it was started by UPA that had covered as many as 61 crore people when the NDA

claimed some credit File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi PTI The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) under which the Unified Payments Interface (the force behind the BHIM app) was launched in 2016 dates back to 2008 and the mobile-enabled immediate payment service to 2010 Prasad talks of everything from "e-Hospital e-Scholarship soil health cards Jeevan Pramaan for pensioners e-NAM linking agricultural mandis" under his government but the origins of these lie somewhere around the year 2000 in Karnataka’s Bhoomi project for computerising land records that triggered a slew of e-governance initiatives in the civil service and various party administrations including that of the TDP in Andhra Pradesh and Congress governments elsewhere A significant achievement of the NDA government has been in laying fibre optic cables across India with an impressive 274000 km of digital data pipes laid over the past four years from a negligible 350 km under the UPA But it must be remembered that BharatNet is just a rebranding of the National Optic Fibre Network (NOFN) that the UPA started in 2011 To NDA’s credit it has displayed some vision in knowing how to take the digital revolution from carriage to content especially through initiatives such as the Open Data platform However a hard look at the site shows that we have a promised transparency but not a desirable

to proceed with legalization in defiance of Congress a "knowing and willful violation of the law" Bowser dug in announcing at a Wednesday afternoon press conference that the city would move ahead on

District” says DC council member Brianne Nadeau “If they lock up the mayor they better take me too” Rep Andy Harris a Maryland Republican who helped lead the fight against the initiative says Congress
