http://www.dominic antoday.com/dr/wor ld/2013/6/25/48077 /Palm-oil-companie s-must-accept-resp onsibility-for-Ind onesian-fires- Jakarta.– Palm oil and pulp and paper companies in Indonesia should accept responsibility for their role in the country's forest fires rather than hide behind zero burn policies or try and imply local communities are to blame, Greenpeace International said on Monday. Palm oil and pulp and paper companies have rejected accusations they are responsible for fires in or around their concession that have caused air pollution problems in Singapore and Malaysia. But Greenpeace International argues that the current problems are the result of decades of forest destruction in Sumatra. "Palm oil giants such as Sime Darby and Wilmar International can't just wash their hands of responsibility for these crimes and hide behind their zero burning policies. These types of companies created the conditions for this disaster by draining and clearing peatland," said Bustar Maitar, head of the Indonesia Forest Campaign at Greenpeace International. When peatland is cleared and drained of water for plantations it becomes prone to fire. Any fire, either deliberate, accidental or from small-scale clearing, can become an environmental disaster. Under Indonesian law, development on peat up to three meters deep is still legal, and also the palm oil industry’s certification system, the RSPO, does not ban all development on peat. "Palm oil producers like Sime Darby, Wilmar International and IOI can’t guarantee they are not trading this dirty palm oil to the global market. Without strict purchasing policies in place that ensure they do not trade in dirty palm oil, these companies are driving deforestation and the destruction of countless thousands of hectares of peatland," said Bustar. Greenpeace calls on palm oil producers to urgently extinguish fires in their concessions, immediately stop the drainage and development on peat and natural forests and ensure palm oil in their supply chains is free from forest destruction. The government of Indonesia must also strengthen the moratorium on forest clearance and fully protect all peatland. Greenpeace International recently released an analysis of NASA hotspot data in Sumatra over 11-21 June revealing hundred hotspots in palm oil concessions that are owned by Indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean companies.  (Jun 25, 2013 | post #1)

Marine - Crown Capital Management Jakarta Indonesia

Crown Capital Eco Management engages in marine monitoring and distributing practical information in current monitoring projects in the region -- confirming their effectiveness, benefits and limitations. The crucial need for more coordination among local and international monitoring programs is also being looked into regularly, resulting in a recommendation on what conceptual model would be more efficient in creating monitoring programs in the future. We conduct an array of marine evaluations based on various data, which includes good fisheries and biophysical resource. Crown Capital Eco Management has successfully determined several standard tools that effectively measures relevant factors. Our monitoring activities provide a constant reference information on the condition of regional seas and addresses the following: - mapping of sensitive marine areas - coastal resources and guidelines - water quality and pollution - marine safety (naval defense operations, ship routing, etc.) Overall, repeated measurements of critical aspects of the marine environment condition in key regions provide a substantial basis for evaluating growth towards better marine condition.  (Oct 15, 2012 | post #1)

Protein to combat reef-destroying starfish

Crown Capital Management Jakarta Indonesia - A group of scientists in Australia has announced this week an potentially effective way to eliminate the destructive starfish, crown of thorns, that are feasting on coral reefs in the Pacific ocean. The crown of thorns is already prominent in the Pacific and Indian Ocean where they feed mainly on coral polyps. Outbreaks of the large and poisonous starfish are blamed for the massive destruction of corals. The Great Barrier Reef is located in the northeastern coast of Australia and composed of thousands of reef formations. The report by Australian Institute of Marine Science showed that almost half of the coral reef is gone compared to its size 30 years ago. Clearly, the first phase would be to remove the voracious eaters, starfish, and convince farming operations to reduce their chemical-laden runoffs that victimize coral, and in some cases even support the starfish growth. James Cook University in Queensland announced their discovery of a bacteria culture that could help in preserving the Great Barrier Reef by killing the culprit, starfish. The protein mixture where the bacteria is cultured was discovered to be capable of destroying starfish within 24 hours. According to researchers of the ARC Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at the university, the next phase will deal with determining how safe the protein is when it comes to other marine life. “In developing a biological control you have to be very careful to target only the species you are aiming at, and be certain that it can cause no harm to other species or to the wider environment. This compound looks very promising from that standpoint — though there is a lot of tank testing still to do before we would ever consider trialing it in the sea,” said Professor Morgan Pratchett of the ARC center. However, this discovery alone is not enough to curb the massive outbreaks of starfish being seen today. view story: http://www.quora.c om/Maxwel-Gordon/C apital-Management- Jakarta-Indonesia/ Protein-to-combat- reef-destroying-st arfish-Capital-Man agement-Jakarta-In donesia  (Oct 14, 2012 | post #1)

Beeswax discovered as ancient tooth filling

Crown Capital Management Jakarta Indonesia – An ancient tooth patched with beeswax filling and was recovered from Slovenia a hundred years ago could very well be the oldest evidence of ancient dentistry. According to a report by researchers published in the PLoS ONE journal last week, the beeswax filling is 6,500 years old and was applied on a tooth recovered from Italy. It was estimated that the person who owned it could be in his 20s. Furthermore, the extreme wear on the tooth is evident of other activities like making tools, weaving and softening leather where it was used, aside from eating. Radiocarbon dating performed on the beeswax and a large ion accelerator, revealing it to be thousands of years old. The particular jaw has been in an international center for a hundred years and yet no one noticed something interesting in it until recently. The beeswax is apparently applied to the left tooth of a jaw around the time of death but scientists cannot determine if it was before or after. But if the person was still alive when the beeswax was applied to his tooth, then this discovery could be the oldest evidence of therapeutic dentistry in the European region. Experts assume that the beeswax application might be for relieving sensitivity and pain in teeth so they are now looking into dental tests to verify if this treatment will be effective. “At the moment we do not have any idea if this is an isolated case or if similar interventions were quite spread in Neolithic Europe. In collaboration with our interdisciplinary team, we are planning to analyze other Neolithic teeth in order to understand how widespread these types of interventions were,” said archeologist Federico Bernardini. On the other hand, it is also possible that the beeswax was placed on the tooth after death as part of burial customs at that time, and that the crack they found was due to its exposure for many years. This particular hypothesis is believed to be unlikely because of how the beeswax was placed in the crack. Discovering proof of ancient dentistry is very rare, with oldest examples dating back from 5000 to 9000 year-old teeth found in the Middle East.  (Oct 13, 2012 | post #1)
