Harrison Ford Urges US To Invest In Conservation Before It Becomes National

first_imgHarrison Ford has urged the US to invest in conservation in a new interview with the BBC’s Laura Trevelyan.Video: Harrison Ford: ‘Humans need nature’.In the interview, the actor – alongside Conservation International Chief Executive Officer Peter Seligmann – talks about how the lack of water and food in developing countries could become a national security issue for the US.“It puts such stress on some of the most fragile nations in the world,” he says. “We’re all interconnected. For example, a simple lack of fresh water can lead to population dislocation, which can lead to political radicalization, which can lead to great pressure on the states that receive refugees because of a migrating population.””It’s a lot cheaper to intervene before it becomes a national security issue,” Mr Ford said. “Every dollar that we spend on international conservation comes back to us.”When asked why it is so important to him so personally, Ford replied “I’m human, I have children, I’m interested in their futures. I’m interested in nature in many many ways. And I’m also interested in the moral responsibility of human beings – to each other, to themselves, to the future.”To watch the entire interview, click here.last_img read more

ESPNs Stuart Scott Battling Cancer For 3rd Time

ESPN anchor Stuart Scott, among the more creative and popular personalities on the all-sports network, announced on Twitter Monday night that he is enduring a third bout with cancer.“Blessed by prayers..I’m back in the Fight. C reared its head again. Chemo evry 2 wks but I’ll still work, still work out..still #LIVESTRONG”Scott was flooded with well-wishes from fans, including Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.“Thanks for prayers..ill fight w ALL C survivors & loved ones. Cancer wants to re-appear..picked the right guy cuz I HIT HARD all day long!!”In 2007, according to Touched By Cancer magazine, Scott was first diagnosed with cancer after he got sick during a Monday Night Football game. An emergency appendectomy revealed the presence of appendiceal cancer.After six months of chemotherapy, Scott was declared cancer-free. However, in early 2011 doctors discovered that malignant tumors had developed on his small intestine. More surgery and chemotherapy were required.And now, recently, the cancer has resurfaced.Scott, who graduated from the University of North Carolina, outlined his post-chemo regimen on Twitter: “Here’s what I do right aftr chemo. Leave the infusion center & go STRAIGHT 2 either do a p90x wkout or train MMA..THATS how you #LIVESTRONG”Known for phrases such as “Boo-yeah” and “cooler than the other side of the pillow,” Scott last year said: “Cancer sucks, and the effects of chemotherapy suck, and you’re going to feel like crap sometimes. But you’re going to feel like that whether you’re lying in bed or going to work or working out, so you might as well go out there and live your life.“If you believe you’re not being touched by this, then it’s much better.”And so, he works.“I love my job,” Scott said then. “Those of us who do what we do, we’re blessed. Being on when you don’t feel well is not the challenge. I love writing. I love creating our shows every night. And by the time it’s time to go on, you’re charged. And when you’re going through something like this, going to work helps. Having that energy helps. Having a positive mindset helps.” read more

Even higher temperatures expected Friday as heat wave continues

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The “blazing heat” that has stifled San Diego County for a week will continue Friday with temperatures expected to climb even higher, a day after Ramona topped out at 111 degrees to match the highest temperature ever recorded in the city, the National Weather Service said.Most of the country remains under an excessive heat warning, which is set to expire Saturday night after being extended twice, while the mountains and beaches remain under a less serious heat advisory during the same period.Rain and thunderstorms that pummeled Riverside and Lake Elsinore on Thursday missed San Diego County, but San Diegans might not be so lucky over the weekend, meteorologists said. Tropical Storm Lidia, which has moved over the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, is expected to send moisture to the north starting Saturday night and lasting through Monday.Meteorologists forecast a 50 percent chance of rain Sunday in the mountains and deserts and a 40 percent chance of rain from the foothills to the beaches. But before the rain, which is expected to cool temperatures down several degrees, San Diegans must brace for more record-breaking high temperatures.“Ahead of the tropical moisture will be continued blazing heat across inland areas today and again on Saturday,” the NWS said. “In fact, today looks as hot as what was felt yesterday, and even hotter at some locales.”If Ramona sees hotter temperatures today, it will set a new all-time heat record. On Thursday, the city topped out at 111, which shattered the old Aug. 31 record of 104 set in 2007 and tied the all-time high set on July 22, 2006.Alpine also set a new Aug. 31 record, hitting 107 to break the old record of 106 set in 1955. Escondido was 105 Thursday to tie the Aug. 31 record set in 1955.High temperatures today will be 87 to 92 degrees at the beaches, 99 to 104 inland, 104 to 109 in the western valleys and near the foothills, 94 to 102 in the mountains and 111 in the deserts.The NWS reminded residents that during an excessive heat warning, “persons working outdoors or those without access to adequate air conditioning will be more likely to experience heat-related illness, such as heat exhaustion. Some heat-related illnesses are serious enough to require hospitalization and could become fatal if left untreated.”The weather service reminded residents to never leave children, seniors or pets unattended in cars; drink more water than usual and avoid alcohol, sugar and caffeine; wear light-colored clothing and a wide-brimmed hat outdoors to keep the head and body cooler; and take frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments.Cool Zones around San Diego Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, Even higher temperatures expected Friday as heat wave continues Updated: 4:16 PMcenter_img KUSI Newsroom Posted: September 1, 2017 September 1, 2017last_img read more
