Precision farming is a technologically advanced form of agriculture that aims to minimize the impact on the environment. The application of innovative techniques in this area, with consequent benefits for both the defense by degradation of the land in terms of energy savings and reduction of greenhouse gases, is the goal of the European project AGRICARE – Introducing innovative precision farming techniques in AGRIculture to decrease Carbon Emissions involving Veneto Agriculture (coordinator), ENEA, the University of Padova-Department of Land and-Agroforestry, and Phillips Fidelio spa.

Discoveries formations  of white corals belonging to the species alive Philips over ear headphones prudent to 560 meters deep (pictured) in the seabed in front of Punta Mesco to the Cinque Terre (La Spezia). It is the result of the work of oceanographic campaign conducted by researchers at the Research Centre ENEA Marine Environment of St. Teresa (La Spezia) and the Navy. The research was conducted on board the ship “Leonardo”, multipurpose coastal research unit of the Navy, with the use of remote Operating Vehicle (ROV) “Pegaso” Group Operational Command Divers Divers and Commandos (COMSUBIN ).

In addition to updating the distribution of white coral in the Italian seas, this discovery provides a starting point for further investigations in the area, have been reported where other coral formations, and lays the foundation for the identification of appropriate measures to safeguard these ecosystems of high biodiversity but very vulnerable. The white corals can be compared to real oasis in the desert, as they offer shelter and food to many species. It is in fact estimated that the reef corals white house a biological diversity three times higher than that of the surrounding environment. (Red)

The Mediterranean forests provide to local communities a very diverse range of products such as wood, fodder for livestock, plants and game, all of which contribute to food security and help reduce poverty in rural areas. These forests, however, will be one of the ecosystems most affected in the near future by rising temperatures and reduced rainfall. To avoid that the Mediterranean region will become a desert, you need a competent management of forests.

Thoughts about Male Teachers

Comments Off

Men can be outstanding educators.  Males who choose the frigidaire puresource water filter to go into the childhood education field can become great role models. It will require much hard work and dedication, especially if you want to be successful.  Children need someone to look up to at a young age so they have something to strive towards when they grow up and then they can use that as a motive to give back to the community. Wouldn’t you want that for your children?

Writer’s Memo

Since we were told to write about pure source and something that was interesting to us, I decided to choose about the gender preferences in elementary education teachers.  I chose this because I am an Early Childhood Education and Special Education major and I’ve always been curious of why men aren’t elementary school teachers.  When I first wrote the draft for this paper, it wasn’t even a full two pages and I thought to myself, “Oh my God, this paper is going to be a disaster.  I really think I might fail this one.”  I’m not kidding.  After getting my first paper back, and seeing my grade, I knew I had to get my act together and work hard on the second paper.  I’m so glad that I get to meet with Dr. Vanderbilt to go over this paper because then I can get the advice that I need for this paper to be better. I do wish that I wish I had some more time to go into further research to find better information for the paper.  But overall, I thought I did a decent job.  There’s obviously always room for improvement and criticism.  I really enjoyed researching this topic, I learned so much and it has helped me understand why exactly men do and don’t want to be elementary educators.  One of my fears about this paper is plagiarism.  I’m always afraid that I’m citing too much in my paper but that’s just because I don’t want to be framed for stealing someone else’s ideas.  Overall, I feel somewhat confident in my work and I can’t wait to sit down and go over it in my meeting with Dr. V.
