The world is on an unsustainable trajectory. Our problems of sanitation, water, energy and food can be distilled into a gross mismanagement of the Earth’s elements. In nature, there is no such thing as waste. Using energy input from the sun, the Earth’s biota very efficiently recycles spent elements and rebuilds life. However, with 7+ billion people on the planet, our planet is severely out of balance. The problems we face today in energy scarcity, water depletion, poor sanitation, and food insecurity can often be traced to a fundamental mismatch of the paces of anthropogenic resource consumption and resource renewal through natural means. This Talk proposes BioRecycling engineering (BRE) as a sustainable solution for the future. Dr. Daniel Yeh is an Assoc. Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at USF, with interests in global water and sanitation, renewable bioenergy, urban water infrastructure, green buildings and climate change. He was a recipient of the 2014 Excellence in Innovation Award at USF.

Scientists conducted an analysis using lipid biomarkers obtained from Dickinsonia fossils and found that the fossils contained almost exclusively cholesteroids, a marker found only in animals. They conclude that Dickinsonia were basal animals, the earliest confirmed animal in the geological record that lived on Earth 558 million years ago.

The "Francevillian biota" is a group of 2.1-billion-old Palaeoproterozoic, macroscopic organisms known from fossils found in the west-African country of Gabon in the Palaeoproterozoic Francevillian B Formation, a black shale province. The fossils have since been regarded as evidence of the earliest form of multicellular life. The fossils were discovered by an international team led by the Moroccan-French geologist Abderrazak El Albani, of the University of Poitiers, France. While the fossils have yet to be assigned to a formal taxonomic position, they have been informally and collectively referred to as the "Gabonionta" by the Natural History Museum Vienna in 2014. The fossil organisms are up to 12 cm in size. Their bodies were flattened disks with a characteristic morphology, including circular and elongated individuals. A spherical to ellipsoidal central body is bounded by radial structures. The fossils show three-dimensionality and coordinated growth. Cell-cell communication must be assumed as it existed before multi-cellularity arose. The findings come from shales of the Franceville basin with a high fossil density of up to 40 individuals per square meter. Presumably, the organisms survived at the bottom in shallow sea water in colonies.The geochemistry of the fossil site indicates that they lived on the sediment under an oxygenated water column of a prograding delta, and they might have engaged in aerobic respiration. In describing the fossils, El Albani and colleagues described them as colonial organisms with possible affinities to eukaryotes, akin to microbial mats albeit unlike any known structures in the fossil record, yet noting the complexity of the fossils and presence of sterane as suggestive of possible eukaryote identity. In a concurrent news report in "Nature", paleontologist Philip Donoghue of Bristol University advocates a more conservative approach pending further evidence before calling them eukaryotes. Another view, held by Yale's Adolf Seilacher, interprets the fossils as not organisms at all, but rather pseudofossils of inorganic pyrites.

This Colorado collective began in the early '80s under the name of the Mnemonists. A music and visual art collective, their first album Hoard is regarded as a classic of experimental music and was reissued by Recommended Records on CD in 1999. Changing their moniker to Biota sometime in the '80s, this signified a change in direction that would see them produce some of the most stunning electro-acoustic music that draws upon folk, rock, and tape music in an incomparable manner. They are often compared to Faust, in that they use the studio to construct their compositions out of acoustic instruments and have no fear of letting the tape machines become instruments in their own right. Recommended also issued this CD, which brings two of their self-released LPs to the digital format. This music really sounds like nothing prior to it, it is a unique marriage of ideas and approaches that on paper appear like a mismatch. Yet when listening to this enthralling and complex music, one can very easily become entranced in its alien sound world. Not entirely abstract, the music has its roots in American tradition and takes in folk and country music in a skewed manner, like Captain Beefheart, Harry Partch, and John Cage all in the same studio. Progressive rock, in a very literal sense of the term, it is no surprise that Chris Cutler was the first to recognize the group and subsequently become a member. At times, they do recall his group Henry Cow in that they are adventurous, bringing jazz, classical, progressive, folk, and 20th century classical into their range of influences. However, the style is unique and unparalleled. Later, groups such as Gastr Del Sol approached similar territory, as has British sampling composer John Wall. This CD collection finds Biota on more abstract ground than their later work, which is similar to the Pentangle, if they existed in Philip K. Dick's universe that is. It was this late-'80s period that earned them many awestruck followers, and often artis --Sylvie Harrison

"Soil biology" is the study of microbial and faunal activity and ecology in soil. "Soil life", "soil biota", "soil fauna", or "edaphon" is a collective term that encompasses all the organisms that spend a significant portion of their life cycle within a soil profile, or at the soil-litter interface. These organisms include earthworms, nematodes, protozoa, fungi, bacteria and different arthropods. Soil biology plays a vital role in determining many soil characteristics. The decomposition of organic matter by soil organisms has an immense influence on soil fertility, plant growth, soil structure, and carbon storage. As a relatively new science, much remains unknown about soil biology and their effects on soil ecosystems. The soil is home to a large proportion of the world's biodiversity. The links between soil organisms and soil functions are observed to be incredibly complex. The interconnectedness and complexity of this soil ‘food web’ means any appraisal of soil function must necessarily take into account interactions with the living communities that exist within the soil. We know that soil organisms break down organic matter, making nutrients available for uptake by plants and other organisms. The nutrients stored in the bodies of soil organisms prevent nutrient loss by leaching. Microbial exudates act to maintain soil structure, and earthworms are important in bioturbation. However, we find that we don't understand critical aspects about how these populations function and interact. The discovery of glomalin in 1995 indicates that we lack the knowledge to correctly answer some of the most basic questions about the biogeochemical cycle in soils. We have much work ahead to gain a better understanding of how soil biological components affect us and the biosphere Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

Thanks to a fluke power outage, aquarium keepers with deep pockets can now get an aquacultured version of the rare, deep water blotched Anthias or Borbonious Anthias (Odontanthias borbonius). In this Fincast, you will see pictures of the rare fish and hear the story of how the company Biota had hoped to breed the fish in captivity. Then one day the lights went out and all of a sudden they had eggs and eventually fry! The result is the world's first aquacultured Borbonious Anthias -- a gorgeous fish. Since these are raised in captivity, they come readily to prepared foods and make great community reef fish.

Friday, November 1, 2013 Joel L. Cracraft Lamont Curator and Chair, Division of Vertebrate Zoology, American Museum of Natural of History Understanding how large-scale biotas are assembled over time has received relatively little attention due to both theoretical and empirical complexities in dealing with such systems. Amazonia is Earth's most iconic center of biological diversity and endemism and is arguably the most important terrestrial biome due to its contributions to global systems ecology. Amazonia includes a vast landscape of mostly lowland rainforest found in Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela. It harbors the world's highest species diversity, the largest fresh-water ecosystem in the world, and contributes substantially to shaping the Earth's atmospheric gasses and consequently its climate. Despite this global importance, we still have a very incomplete picture of how this biodiversity-rich biome developed.

The Office of Environment, Health and Safety, UC Berkeley, rates silver iodide as a Class C, non soluble, inorganic, hazardous chemical that pollutes water and soil. It has been found to be highly toxic to fish, livestock and humans. Numerous medical articles demonstrate that humans absorb silver iodide through the lungs, nose, skin, and GI tract. Mild toxicity can cause GI irritation, renal and pulmonary lesions, and mild argyria (blue or black discoloration of the skin). Severe toxicity can result in hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, shock, enlarged heart, severe argyria, and death by respiratory depression. Moreover, a key manufacturer of silver iodide for weather modification, Deepwater Chemicals, warns of potential health effects of silver iodide in their Material Safety Data Sheet as follows: Chronic Exposure/Target Organs: Chronic ingestion of iodides may produce "iodism", which may be manifested by skin rash, running nose, headache and irritation of the mucous membranes. Weakness, anemia, loss of weight and general depression may also occur. Chronic inhalation or ingestion may cause a rgyria characterized by blue-gray discoloration of the eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Chronic skin contact may cause permanent discoloration of the skin. Under the guidelines of the Clean Water Act by the EPA, silver iodide is considered a hazardous substance, a priority pollutant, and as a toxic pollutant. Some industries have learned this all too well....According to the PGCD, "Every year, two viable samples of rainwater must be sent to a laboratory for analysis and in return forwarded to TNRCC to ensure that the water is not contaminating the area." This is faulty sampling and testing over a seven county area. If PGCD can not control where the seeded clouds dumps water, how can they take only two rain samples per year to test for silver concentrates of the clouds they seeded? At least it is an admission that silver toxicity is an issue. Such misleading statements based on faulty data are not uncommon to the PGCD. In 2001, rainfall amounts were grossly over inflated in multiple rain gauges. Such overstatements are to prop up the benefits of their program while denying the adverse effects. To effectively monitor the levels of silver toxicity, at the very minimum, water samples should be taken on a monthly basis from every dam, creek, stock tank, and other water capture places in the respective district while cloud seeding is being conducted. Also, soil samples should taken. According to the Colorado National Park Service and the Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable, the result of cloud seeding with silver iodide and run off have adverse effects on the water, soil, and flora and fauna. "Elevated silver concentrations in biota occur in the vicinities of sewage outfalls, electroplating plants, mine waste sites, and silver iodide-seeded areas." In fact, in the 1980s the CDC had hoped that silver toxicity would be reduced nationally based on a reduction of cloud seeding activity. "Fallout from cloud seeding with silver iodide is not always confined to local precipitation; silver residuals have been detected several hundred kilometers down wind of seeding events." "Anthropogenic sources associated with the elevated concentrations of silver in nonliving materials include smelting, hazardous waste sites, cloud seeding with silver iodide, metals mining, sewage outfalls, and especially the photo processing industry." Silver leaches into groundwater, streams, soil, and the root systems of plants. "Silver was measured in particular samples from rural and urban area both adjacent to and removed from activities such as metal smelting, refining, and silver iodide cloud seeding" and found "concentrations in precipitation resulting from seeding clouds with silver iodide were 10-450 ng/L compared with concentrations of 0-20ng/L without cloud seeding (Cooper and Jolly 1970)." That translates in 10 to 225 times greater silver concentration in those areas.

DOER Marine collaborated with Canon USA to successfully capture the first color HD video of deep ocean bioluminescence in Hawaiian Bamboo Corals that faithfully shows the behaviors that heretofore have only been conveyed by written and oral histories. In 1979 Dr. Sylvia Earle made a record setting dive to 1250 feet off the coast of Oahu in Hawaii in the JIM suit. She described the bamboo corals, saying “ when I touched them, rings of light pulsed up and down between base and tip”. Pisces submersible Pilots Terry Kerby and Max Cremer along with deep water coral scientist Frank Parrish have all directly observed this phenomenon but have never been able to capture it. Even with advanced silicone intensified low light cameras, images were gray and indistinct. DOER president Liz Taylor and Subsea Technologist Ian Griffith saw the Canon ME20F-SH camera at a trade show in 2015. They immediately saw the potential it had for capturing insitu bioluminescence. DOER had already built the first ABS classed underwater camera housings for Cine cameras/lenses and believed the ME20F-SH could utilize the same housings. Calvin Anderson and Carl Peer from Canon USA worked to make a unit available to DOER for evaluation and testing. In July 2016, Dr. Sylvia Earle received a grant from the National Geographic Society to return to the same deep water coral beds she visited in 1979 for comparative observations of deep water biota. An obvious opportunity presented itself to test and prove the value of the ME20F-SH. On the first dive the camera was operated by a high school biology intern. He captured images of the corals pulsing light exactly as Dr. Earle had described. On the second dive a University of LaVerne photography student operated the camera and captured images both from Pisces IV and images of Pisces V stimulating the corals. The story of capturing the images will be featured in a documentary special called Blue Centennial which follows the National Geographic Blue Centennial Expeditions with young explorers using photography to reveal the unseen American wilderness below the ocean surface. This camera has the capacity to capture never before seen images and is capable of being operated both by those with a science background and experienced photographers alike. Dr. Parrish accompanied both students on their respective dives in Pisces IV while Dr. Earle was in Pisces V. Having both experts there to witness and participate in this remarkable first has left them eager to see what the ME20F-SH can do when fitted into the ABS classed housings. DOER continues to work with the ME20F-SH in its test tank, experimenting with a variety of lenses, recording devices and camera ports to unlock the full potential that this camera holds for subsea science and exploration.

Technical Video Presentation for National Chemical Engineering Symposium (NACES) 2017 by Universiti Sains Malaysia. Summary: Inland aquaculture contributes to 70% of total global fish production resulting competition for natural resources (water, land) and environmental problems such as eutrophication. Eutrophication happens when water body is concentrated with nutrients from the use of fertilizers. As an outcome, the algal blooms limit the amount of dissolved oxygen required for respiration by aquatic species. When the dissolve oxygen reaches hypoxic levels, the aquatic biota suffocate to death. This can bring about aquatic dead zones and lessens biodiversity. Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. Waste is something which is discarded after the completion of a process with no further purpose. Fish waste provides an organic food source for the plants, and the plants naturally filter the water for the fish. Nitrifying bacteria, Nitrosomonas metabolize the ammonia and promotes its oxidation to nitrite ions. Whereas, Nitrobacter oxidize nitrites to nitrates for the plants intake. In combining both hydroponic and aquaculture systems, aquaponics capitalizes on their benefits, and eliminates the drawbacks of each. Aquaponics recycle the water in the system, hence, we can grow in droughts and areas with little water. It uses only 1/10th of the water of soil-based gardening. No harmful petro chemicals, pesticides or herbicides is used. Thus, inhibiting eutrophication. Also, channelling of accumulated non-toxic products to secondary crops can become an additional profit. Besides, it also saves a big lot of space. Thus, making it a sustainable solution to our environmental problem.

Dr Christopher Exley. Lecture on the Mechanism of toxicity of aluminum-baced adjuvants. An overview of the accumulation of aluminum in the human body and steps we can take to detoxify. Dr. Christopher Exley is the speaker in Bioinorganic Chemistry at The Birchall Centre, Keele University in Staffordshire and Honorary Professor at the UHI Millennium Institute. Exley is a biologist (University of Stirling) with a PhD in the ecotoxicology of aluminium (University of Stirling). His research career (1984-present) has focused upon an intriguing paradox; 'how the third most abundant element of the Earth's crust (aluminium) is non-essential and largely inimical to life'. Investigating this mystery has required research in myriad fields from the basic inorganic chemistry of the reaction of aluminium and silicon to the potentially complex biological availability of aluminium in humans. Exley is also fascinated by the element silicon in relation to living things which, as the second most abundant element of the Earth's crust, is also almost devoid of biological function. One possible function of silicon is to keep aluminium out of biology (biota) and this area of study forms a large part of Exley's research.

Hot Springs game :http://www.purposegames.com/game/famous-hot-springs-game Music Geographonic:https://soundcloud.com/wouter-bruys A hot spring is a spring that is produced by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater from the Earth's crust. There are geothermal hot springs in many locations all over the crust of the earth. Contents [hide] 1 Definitions 2 Sources of heat 3 Flow rates 3.1 High flow hot springs 4 Therapeutic uses 5 Biota in hot springs 6 List of hot springs 7 See also 8 References 9 Further reading 10 External links Definitions "Blood Pond" hot spring in Beppu, Japan There is no universally accepted definition of a hot spring. For example, one can find the phrase hot spring defined as any geothermal spring a spring with water temperatures above its surroundings a natural spring with water temperature above body temperature -- normally between 36.5 and 37.5 °C (98 and 100 °F) a natural spring with warm water above body temperature Guelma in Algeria a thermal spring with water warmer than 36.7 °C (98 °F) a natural spring of water greater than 21.1 °C (70 °F) (synonymous with thermal spring) a natural discharge of groundwater with elevated temperatures a type of thermal spring in which hot water is brought to the surface. The water temperature of a hot spring is usually 6.5 °C (12 °F) or more above mean air temperature. Note that by this definition, "thermal spring" is not synonymous with the term "hot spring" a spring whose hot water is brought to the surface (synonymous with a thermal spring). The water temperature of the spring is usually 8.3 °C (15 °F) or more above the mean air temperature. a spring with water above the core human body temperature -- 36.7 °C (98 °F). a spring with water above average ambient ground temperature, a definition favored by some a spring with water temperatures above 50 °C (122 °F) Hot spring in Lassen Volcanic National Park The related term "warm spring" is defined as a spring with water temperature less than a hot spring by many sources, although Pentecost et al. (2003) suggest that the phrase "warm spring" is not useful and should be avoided. The US NOAA Geophysical Data Center defines a "warm spring" as a spring with water between 20 and 50 °C (68 and 122 °F). Sources of heat The water issuing from a hot spring is heated by geothermal heat, i.e., heat from the Earth's mantle. In general, the temperature of rocks within the earth increases with depth. The rate of temperature increase with depth is known as the geothermal gradient. If water percolates deeply enough into the crust, it will be heated as it comes into contact with hot rocks. The water from hot springs in non-volcanic areas is heated in this manner. Steam Crepuscular rays at Mammoth Hot Springs In active volcanic zones such as Yellowstone National Park, water may be heated by coming into contact with magma (molten rock). The high temperature gradient near magma may cause water to be heated enough that it boils or becomes superheated. If the water becomes so hot that it builds steam pressure and erupts in a jet above the surface of the Earth, it is called a geyser. If the water only reaches the surface in the form of steam, it is called a fumarole. If the water is mixed with mud and clay, it is called a mud pot. Note that hot springs in volcanic areas are often at or near the boiling point. People have been seriously burned and even killed by accidentally or intentionally entering these springs. Warm springs are sometimes the result of hot and cold springs mixing but may also occur outside of volcanic areas, such as Warm Springs, Georgia (frequented for its therapeutic effects by paraplegic U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who built the Little White House there). Flow rates

Starfish or sea stars are star-shaped echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. Common usage frequently finds these names being also applied to ophiuroids, which are correctly referred to as brittle stars or "basket stars". About 1,500 species of starfish occur on the seabed in all the world's oceans, from the tropics to frigid polar waters. They are found from the intertidal zone down to abyssal depths, 6,000 m (20,000 ft) below the surface. Starfish are marine invertebrates. They typically have a central disc and five arms, though some species have a larger number of arms. The aboral or upper surface may be smooth, granular or spiny, and is covered with overlapping plates. Many species are brightly coloured in various shades of red or orange, while others are blue, grey or brown. Starfish have tube feet operated by a hydraulic system and a mouth at the centre of the oral or lower surface. They are opportunistic feeders and are mostly predators on benthic invertebrates. Several species have specialized feeding behaviours including eversion of their stomachs and suspension feeding. They have complex life cycles and can reproduce both sexually and asexually. Most can regenerate damaged parts or lost arms and they can shed arms as a means of defence. The Asteroidea occupy several significant ecological roles. Starfish, such as the ochre sea star (Pisaster ochraceus) and the reef sea star (Stichaster australis), have become widely known as examples of the keystone species concept in ecology. The tropical crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster planci) is a voracious predator of coral throughout the Indo-Pacific region, and the northern Pacific sea star is considered to be one of the world's 100 worst invasive species. The fossil record for starfish is ancient, dating back to the Ordovician around 450 million years ago, but it is rather sparse, as starfish tend to disintegrate after death. Only the ossicles and spines of the animal are likely to be preserved, making remains hard to locate. With their appealing symmetrical shape, starfish have played a part in literature, legend, design and popular culture. They are sometimes collected as curios, used in design or as logos, and in some cultures, despite possible toxicity, they are eaten. The scientific name Asteroidea was given to starfish by the French zoologist de Blainville in 1830. It is derived from the Greek aster, ἀστήρ (a star) and the Greek eidos, εἶδος (form, likeness, appearance). The class Asteroidea belongs to the phylum Echinodermata. As well as the starfish, the echinoderms include sea urchins, sand dollars, brittle and basket stars, sea cucumbers and crinoids. The larvae of echinoderms have bilateral symmetry, but during metamorphosis this is replaced with radial symmetry, typically pentameric. Adult echinoderms are characterized by having a water vascular system with external tube feet and a calcareous endoskeleton consisting of ossicles connected by a mesh of collagen fibres. Starfish are included in the subphylum Asterozoa, the characteristics of which include a flattened, star-shaped body as adults consisting of a central disc and multiple radiating arms. The subphylum includes the two classes of Asteroidea, the starfish, and Ophiuroidea, the brittle stars and basket stars. Asteroids have broad-based arms with skeletal support provided by calcareous plates in the body wall while ophiuroids have clearly demarcated slender arms strengthened by paired fused ossicles forming jointed "vertebrae". The starfish are a large and diverse class with about 1,500 living species. There are seven extant orders, Brisingida, Forcipulatida, Notomyotida, Paxillosida, Spinulosida, Valvatida and Velatida and two extinct ones, Calliasterellidae and Trichasteropsida. Most starfish have five arms that radiate from a central disc, but the number varies with the group. Luidia ciliaris has seven arms, members of the Solasteridae have ten to fifteen while the Antarctic Labidiaster annulatus can have up to fifty. It is not unusual in species that typically have five arms for some individuals to possess six or more through abnormal development.

An ecosystem contains living and non living things. The ecosystem has many examples of the interaction between the living and non living. The living things in an ecosystem are called biotic factors. Living things include plants, animals, bacteria, fungi and more. The non living parts of an ecosystem are called abiotic factors. In an ecosystem some abiotic factors are sunlight, temperature atmospheric gases water and soil. One example of the interaction between abiotic and biotic factors is with plants. The plants use sunlight, water, and CO2 to make food. Without these abiotic factors plants would not be able to grow. Another example is the interaction between turtles and soil. Some turtles are known to bury themselves in soil. When the temperature becomes too hot turtles seek protection in the cool underground. Elephants and water interact as well. In order to stay hydrated elephants drink water. In fact all biotic factors need water to survive. Fish and temperature also show the interaction between living and nonliving. A fish's' body temperature matches it surroundings. warm tropical waters keep a tropical fish's body operating at an optional temperature. Another example is a fox and snow. When the temperature drops and snow starts to fall some foxes grow a white fur coat. The thick coat insulates and keeps the fox warm. Also the color matches it surroundings, an adaptation known as camouflage. Lastly Bacteria and soil interact. Bacteria are decomposers. Decomposers get energy by recycling dead organisms back into the ground. Nutrients enter the soil helping making the ground fertile. Take a look out of your window and try to identify interactions between abiotic and biotic factors
