US Mines & Mineral Resources: "United States: A Ten Talent Nation" 1922 American Motion Picture
Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

Vulcan 25 TPH Gypsum Dryer System
For more information, visit: https://www.vulcansystems.com. Vulcan 25 ton per hour Gypsum Dryer dries mined gypsum, pelletized gypsum or gypsum for use in wallboard. This equipment has been designed to reduce the moisture content in gypsum through a direct fired rotary dryer. Particulate matter emissions (dust) are controlled using a high-efficiency cyclone and pulse jet baghouse. The system includes the following componentry: Material Feed System: Specially lined feed hopper, an optional classifier and Tuffman® transfer conveyor(s) Rotary Dryer: Direct fired rotary dryer with drive, seals and industrial burner Dry Material Discharge: Flap-gate drum discharge and Tuffman® conveyor Air Pollution Control Devices: High-efficiency cyclone, baghouse and induced draft fan Controls: Push button control panels or programmable logic controllers, PLC, options available PROCESS DESCRIPTION The Vulcan® 25 TPH Gypsum Dryer is fed wet gypsum to a high slip lined hopper, which feeds a material classifier. This unit acts as a pre-conditioner to increase the effectiveness of the drying step. Once prepped, material is gravity fed to a Tuffman® belt conveyor and then a final conveyor which transports the material into the drum. The Vulcan® direct fired rotary dryer is the workhorse of the drying industry. A simple unit, the inclined rotating cylinder, is fitted with an industrial burner radiating heat down the center of the drum. Lifting flights pick up the material and then cascade it into the hot combustion gases. This intimate mixing provides the heat required for the phase transformation of liquid water into steam. As material progresses through the drum, more and more water is vaporized until the dried gypsum drops out of the gravity discharge and onto a Tuffman® conveyor. Vapors, combustion gases, steam and tramp air entrain dust particles known as particulate matter, which must be controlled. The first step in controlling particulate matter is our custom-built Vulcan® cyclone dust collector. Our cyclones utilize centrifugal force to separate the heavier solid particles from the vapor stream. This acts as a pre-conditioner to the baghouse for overall reduced particulate matter emissions. Remaining entrained dust is routed to a pulse jet baghouse. A pulse jet baghouse or fabric filter dust collector operates similarly to an air filter on an engine. Air is pulled through a filter-media, which collects dust while the gases pass through. Baghouses have the ability to remove particulate matter greater than 1 micron with more than 99.99% efficiency, which will help to meet any environmental regulations on air pollution. The cleaned dust is then pushed out the stack of the system through an induced draft fan. Options New or used Vulcan® Vapor Heater Feed classifier Customizable to meet your specific process needs, including: Adding knockers to prevent internal buildup Pollutant limiting burners for reducing NOx and/or CO emissions Abrasion resistant linings Abrasion resistant flighting Insultation to increase thermal efficiency Vortex breaker on cyclone to decrease re-entrainment Applications Drying mined or quarried gypsum to meet specified moisture levels Drying pelletized gypsum (part of the pelletizing process) Drying gypsum for use in wallboard

The Mining Rap
LYRICS: Chorus: One of the world's biggest industries A vast amount of minerals and history A process that's been around since the Earth's birth It's basically taking minerals out of the Earth The minerals found are so bright and blinding It's a job for a man, no room for whining And it keeps on getting bigger, not so surprising What am I talking about? M-I-N MINING Verse 1: It's time to start a new chapter Go flip the page 10,000 years ago, in the Neolithic Age, Cavemen were mining for minerals like Nickel It was as easy as cake Despite the long wait These men went on a mineral resource shopping spree Resources had divisions that were divided into three First was metallic from Gold to Uranium Second was non-metallic from Calcium to Magnesium Then the last is used for powering our tools It's none other than the mineral fuels Powers our machines to help reach our goals This ranges from Petroleum to Coal How do they get these? They use a lot of tactics The most basic one of them is using Mathematics This is Trigonometry So in other words it's not anymore a mystery So we can move on to its history (Repeat Chorus) Verse 2 Wanna travel back in time? Let's go! The Neolithic Period 10,000 years ago Where primitive men used to mine for Nickel It was easy as cake straightforward as a pickle Then fast forward by 7,000 years When the Egyptian bad boys were making a tear Then they started to organize mining to separate the men from the boys They mined for Gold, Silver and Turquoise Then the Greeks and Romans got their own take on mining They made various techniques and eventually defined it The Middle Ages arrived, and mining really beamed From being labour-intensive, they leveled up to steam And here's something you already knew It spread to the land of the red, white, and blue They dominated the game and no one could get in range Or in other words, they brought the game change The Philippines took a hand of it, and mining really helps our country survive From the Royal Decree of 1837 to the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 Special thanks to SADIKBeatz for the beat1

Alpha Natural Resources - Running Right?
For the past decade Dickenson Russell Coal Company a subsidiary of Alpha Natural Resources has been dewatering the abandoned McClure 1 mine to make room for coal waste slurry injection from the McClure 1 Coal Preparation plant. This occurs at the former air return shaft located beside Highway 83 just 6 miles east of Clintwood, Virginia. The water is discharged untreated into the McClure River which flows into the Russell Fork , then the Big Sandy, Ohio, and Mississippi. According to Eric Greear who works for the Department of Mines Minerals and Energy's Division of Mined Land Reclamation, only acidity and metal tests are performed on the water before it is discharged into the river. When asked about chemical testing, he said tests for chemicals were not required. The McClure #1 mine was in operation from 1978 to 1995. Has no one thought of the thousands of gallons of used hydraulic oil and gears oils that leaked from the machinery over the mine's lifespan? There are also many other chemicals that are left behind in the mining process including adhesives, strong cleaning agents, and anti-freeze to name a few. How can it be legal and considered "Running Right" to pump stagnant polluted mine water straight into our streams? \Alpha Natural Resources....Running Right?

Environmentally Sound Practices in the Aggregates Industry: Chapter 02
This is clip 2 of 7 for this video. Air and noise pollution are two major concerns that communities have about neighboring mining operations. Governmental regulations are in place to limit the amount of air emissions allowed in the mining industry. Two types of air emissions must be controlled, point-source and fugitive emissions. Wet-suppression, Bag-house filtration, or enclosures can reduce point-source dust emissions. Wetting aggregate pile during loading, wetting roadways and controlling the speed limit of vehicles will reduce fugitive emissions. Blasting creates short term dust emissions and ground vibrations. Acceptable blasting times and vibration limits must be adhered to in order to minimize community complains. Enclosures will also reduce the amount of noise pollution emitting from the plant. Shrubs and trees will act as a buffer zone between operational noise and the community.

Earth Embassy 2014
World Environment Day Earth Embassy Action Grass Hut outside Parliament This World Environment Day, June the 5th 2014 an Earth Embassy will be established at the Victorian Parliament House precinct. The Embassy is a reclamation of the sovereign indigenous land and will represent a united front of world indigenous movements against the destruction of the earth and its peoples. The autonomous space will be a hub for all earth defenders to establish a presence on Aboriginal land and bring their issues to the city streets. The protest features the First-nations Liberation Movement (FnL). They will bring Black issues to the conversation on World Environment Day, creating a space for indigenous people to join forces in solidarity with others responding to the ecological emergency facing our planet. West Papuan indigenous activists will construct a traditional hut to bring their demands for environmental justice and human rights in their homeland to Melbourne. West Papuan Ronny Kareni explained his people's position. "Imagine a foreign corporation arrived one day with your national government's blessing and seized your home; destroyed your grocery store, local farms and gardens, your church, your favorite park; polluted your drinking water." "West Papuan indigenous people have no recourse to the law to defend their lands from multinational companies. As a collective voice and as defenders of the Earth and indigenous custodians of our land, we demand foreign corporations with their national government to STOP plundering the mother earth.'' Earth Embassy organiser Izzy Brown explained. "In Australia indigenous people are being double dispossessed, first their land has been stolen, and now its being destroyed. But as the original custodians of the land they continue to be at the forefront of the struggle to defend the planet." Robie Thorpe (FnL) ''This country is based on premeditated acts of genocide on aboriginal people and our land.'' "The Earth Embassy moves in solidarity with the recently established Redfern Tent Embassy and the Muckaty traditional owners who are currently in the Federal Court of Australia contesting the Government's proposed national nuclear waste dump being placed on their land without their consent. From toll ways to fracking, from old growth forest logging to coal mining, from dredging to drilling, the environment is under attack, and the climate is on the brink of cataclysmic change. There is now more need than ever to establish a space to challenge state and federal governments committed to funding environmental destruction through subsidies to mulitinational mining companies, the coal and old growth logging industries. If they attempt to silence us through the recently implemented Summary Offences act that grants the police more move on powers, the Earth Embassy is prepared to challenge their jurisdiction to enact these laws against a sovereign indigenous protest." "The Earth Embassy will bring the reality of the environment emergency to the parliament and big business district of Melbourne through traditional, beautiful radical and necessary acts of creative resistance."

Steven Tannas, Jennifer Barker: Elements of Success, Adaptive Approach to Reclamation Excellence
Dr. Steven Tannas, President of Tannas Conservation Services, and Jennifer Barker, O2 Planning + Design Inc., discuss ways to achieve success in the reclamation process. The information in this presentation is based on the extensive knowledge gained by doing reclamation work in the Calgary area, which involves the stabilization, contouring, maintenance, conditioning, reconstruction and re-vegetation of the land surface. Some general questions that must be asked during the beginning stage of reclamation include: do the plant systems reintroduced to the environment act as an ecosystem? And is there enough plant diversity and healthy soil? Comprehensive aspects of reclamation include five components: a multidisciplinary team of professionals, pre-planning and site evaluation, scientific approach based design, overviewed by qualified environmental inspections, and a site specific monitoring program. The speakers address each of these components and use an example of a reclamation site which they both personally worked on. Issues raised in the past by stakeholders include the fear that it is too costly, risky, hard and unnecessary. These concerns were addressed in the presentation. They explained that while the upfront costs were considerable, they were much less expensive than having a reclaimed site fail and needing to do it over again. The risk of site failure is strongly mitigated if the project is properly researched and the correct professionals are hired on from the beginning. They explain that while natural recovery is possible in specific instances with small land areas and minimal soil disturbance, the majority of reclamation needs to be done by professionals in order to recreate a viable ecosystem. This presentation has been a part of the Canadian Land Reclamation Association Alberta Chapter AGM and Conference, from February 2014.

Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The military's use of the Puerto Rican island of Vieques as a training site is discussed to highlight the challenges involved in identifying and restoring hazardous sites. Political opposition is faced while attempting to get a site recognized as hazardous, deciding how to compensate those affected, and determining an appropriate level of environmental restoration. The recurring theme of government secrecy and its effect on efforts to protect the environment is also covered during this lecture, as the US military is reluctant to allow researchers to examine testing grounds. The reclamation of these sites involves many environmental statutes, including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). 00:00 - Chapter 1.

And while the year 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions.

Legislation 0367-13: In order for Navajo Nation to obtain performance and reclamation bonds for the BHP Navajo Mine, two insurance companies (Arch Insurance and Zurich American Insurance) are requiring the Nation to waive sovereign immunity and to subject themselves to State Court. ● Why? These insurance companies see the Navajo Mine clean-up as a risk & liability ● Arch and Zurich companies asking Navajo to waive their sovereign immunity rights in a State Court so that Navajo can obtain bonds to complete Navajo Mine transaction ● Basically, this legislation is asking Navajo Nation to waive their sovereignty rights because Arch and Zurich insurance companies may see the Navajo courts as more likely to force them to pay if Navajo Nation does not meet Federal standards for reclamation and clean-up of Navajo MineNavajo Nation Consultants on purchasing the BHP Navajo mine.

Critical Minute - Mining for a Public Relations Strategy
The goal of public relations professionals in most mining operations is to manage public, environmental and governmental affairs. PR professionals in this space need extensive knowledge in media and community relations, environmental planning and government relations. In many cases, the public relations office in a mining operation complements and strengthens a robust environmental permitting team. The mining industry's political and national advocacy is managed by the National Mining Association, which currently organizes the Advocacy Campaign Team (ACT) for mining. This is an online national network of more than 350,000 supporters promoting domestic mining. The mining industry doesn't operate without protest. Both national and global mining accidents, which claim the lives of thousands of miners worldwide each year, drive increased safety measures. Environmental groups, battling against the depletion and spoiling of natural resources, also pose a threat to domestic operations. It's one of the toughest public relations jobs, and professionals in this space constantly dig in to local, national and international TV & Radio coverage on related mining issues to safeguard their operations and shore up local opinion.

The Choice is Ours (2016) Official Full Version
https://www.thevenusproject.com Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

What is BLAND-ALLISON ACT? What does BLAND-ALLISON ACT mean? BLAND-ALLISON ACT meaning - BLAND-ALLISON ACT definition - BLAND-ALLISON ACT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The Bland–Allison Act, also referred to as the Grand Bland Plan of 1878, was an act of United States Congress requiring the U.S. Treasury to buy a certain amount of silver and put it into circulation as silver dollars. Though the bill was vetoed by President Rutherford B. Hayes, the Congress overrode Hayes' veto on February 28, 1878 to enact the law. The five-year depression following the Panic of 1873 caused cheap-money advocates (led by Representative Richard P. Bland, a Democrat of Missouri), to join with silver-producing interests in urging a return to bimetallism, the use of both silver and gold as a standard. Coupled with Senator William B. Allison of Iowa, they agreed to a proposal that allowed silver to be purchased at market rates, metals to be minted into silver dollars, and required the US Treasury to purchase between $2 million to $4 million silver each month from western mines. President Rutherford B. Hayes, who held interests in industrials and banking, vetoed the measure, which was overturned by Congress. As a result, the Hayes administration purchased the limited amount of silver each month. This act helped restore bimetallism with gold and silver both supporting the currency. However, gold remained heavily favored over silver, paving way for the gold standard. The free-silver movement of the late 19th century advocated the unlimited coinage of silver, which would have resulted in inflationary monetary policy. In 1873, Congress had removed the usage of silver dollar from the list of authorized coins under the Coinage Act of 1873 (referred to by opponents as 'the Crime of '73'"). Although the Bland-Allison Act of 1878 directed the Treasury to purchase silver from the "best-western" miners, President Grover Cleveland repealed the act in 1893. Advocates of free silver included owners of silver mines in the West, farmers who believed an inclusion of silver would increase crop prices, and debtors who believed would alleviate their debts. Although the free silver movement ended, the debate of inflation and monetary policy continues to this day. The Fourth Coinage Act acknowledged the gold standard over silver. Those who advocated for silver labeled this act as the Crime of '73. As a result of demonetized silver, gold became the only metallic standard in the United States and became the default standard. The price of gold was more stable than that of silver, largely due to silver discoveries in Nevada and other places in the West, and the price of silver to gold declined from 16-to-1 in 1873 to nearly 30-to-1 by 1893. The term limping bimetallism describes this problem. The U.S. government finally ceded to pressure from the western mining states and the Bland-Allison Act went into effect in 1878, which was replaced by the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890. The law was replaced in 1890 by the similar Sherman Silver Purchase Act, which in turn was repealed by Congress in 1893. These were two instances where the United States attempted to establish bimetallic standards in the long run. Western miners and debtors regarded the Bland-Allison Act as an insufficient measure to enforce unlimited coinage of silver, but opponents repealed the act and advocated for the gold standard. The effect of the Bland-Allison act was also blunted by the minimal purchase of silver required by the Hayes administration. Although the act was a near turning point for bimetallism, gold continued to be favored over the bimetallism standard. Throughout 1860 to 1871, several attempts were made by the Treasury to establish the bimetallic standard by having gold and silver franc. However, the discovery of silver led to an influx of supply, lowering the price of silver. The eventual removal of the bimetallic standard, including the Bland-Allison Act and the acceptance of the gold standard formed the monetary stability in the late 19th century. The limitation placed on the supply of new notes and the Treasury control over the issue of new notes allowed for economic stability. Prior to the acceptance, the devaluation of silver forced local governments into a financial turmoil. In addition, there was a need for money supply to increase as the credit system expanded and large banks established themselves across states.

Allyson Siwik - The Commons, Public Trust, Wild and Scenic Rivers
November 14, Monday: The Commons, Public Trust, Wild and Scenic Rivers The Commons, Public Trust, Wild and Scenic Rivers: Mary Wood, Ruth Breech and Allyson Siwik 6pm -9pm Women’s Club, 1616 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe, New Mexico Keynote presentations by Nature’s Trust and Public Trust: Mary Wood, University of Oregon Environmental Law, Nature’s Trust Ruth Breach, Rainforest Action Network, Public Lands Campaign Director Allyson Siwik, Wild Rivers with GILA River Information Project: The Commons, Public Trust, Wild and Scenic rivers. These are concept and legal definitions that guide public lands policy and underlie planning, stewardship and administration decisions. These concepts and rules impact lands we all own together. There are about 400 million acres of land in public trust in the US. Decisions about the management of this land are meaningful to the nation and well as for the planet. Come learn from Nature’s Trust author and prominent environmental law professor Mary Wood about her groundbreaking research and work to enable citizens to hold the US Government accountable to reduce Carbon emissions. From Allyson Siwik learn about the long water-moving legacies of the Bureau of Reclamation, the gains and the losses, and the fight to protect wild rivers. From Ruth Breech learn about the new Rainforest Action Network’s campaign to stop mining permits on public lands, in the name of public health and mitigating catastrophic climate change. Each in their own way invokes the public trust, and the sacred right to protect the commons we all share, for the next generation. Public Trust law– a commonwealth legal framework that protects our ecological life-systems with roots in Ancient Roman Law . Mary Wood’s “Nature’s Trust” builds on this framework, and lays out the existing jurisprudence that can be employed to protect our commons, a marked contrast from the “ legalized damage” we currently practice . We will learn about valiant efforts and growing momentum to preserve the wild and scenic Gila River, one of the last free running rivers in the southwest. If you recall the “ OUR LAND: DRY LAND film we produced about the Arizona CAP Canal– you will understand why yet more large-scale reclamation projects are unacceptable. And a powerful campaign by the Rainforest Action Network to shift practices and stewardship on public lands, stopping the bargain leases for oil and gas on our national commons on the 400 Million acres of Federal lands.

Maritime Asia: Securitization of the China Seas
The Institute of East Asian Studies, UC Berkeley, in collaboration with the Department of Politics & International Studies, University of Cambridge, is convening a workshop on “Maritime Asia” with a focus on the “securitization” of the China Seas in the 19th and 20th Centuries. This public forum presents the highlights from the workshop. Anchored in the disciplines of historical and international studies, we view “securitization” as a process of politicization that is geographically defined, historically contingent, resource constrained and trans-temporal in its effects. We also view securitization as the formation of a discourse that is contingent upon complex speech acts in multiple sites. What can we learn from China's modern history about the nation's long-term aspirations as a maritime power? How does Beijing pursue naval preeminence in a post-Cold War political economy of globalizing connections and multilateral agreements? As China aspires to become a major Asian maritime power in the 21st century, we propose to examine the how, why, and the so what, internally and internationally, about its significance.

I Love  Mountains Day, In Kentucky. Jim Gooch
In 2005 Kentucky became the first state in the nation to propose a bill that would end the dumping of mine wastes into headwater streams, one of the most destructive aspects of mountaintop removal mining. At the current rate, this form of mining will destroy an additional 1,000 miles of streams in the next decade. Despite the clear, negative environmental impact of this type of mining and the efforts of hundreds of citizen lobbyists, our Stream Saver Bill has been held up in the House Natural Resources and Environment Committee for the last three years without once being given a hearing. The chair of the committee, Rep. Jim Gooch (D-Providence) refuses to even present the bill to the committee for discussion. In the 2007 session Rep. Gooch claimed there was no public outcry about this type of mining. On the following Saturday the Lexington Herald-Leader published over a dozen letters from people all around the state, outraged by his comments (the paper had received more than 60 such letters). In the 2008 General Assembly, we are going to make our biggest push yet for this legislation, and we need the help of all of our members and anyone who cares about health and well-being of our environment and our people. I love Mountains Day Rally Frankfort, KY.
