The HU's Mongolian folk metal will soon rock the Black Sheep

 Cache   
The many subgenres encompassed by the sprawling reaches of “metal” can be so microminiature and hyper-specific that it’s often a bit of a joke, even among its most hardcore acolytes. Naturally, these varied approaches within the genre tend to lead to wildly different sounds, and one that still remains a bit of a wild card is folk metal.…
          

Sucios

 Cache   

Semana 48. 333/33
Valeriano.

Aunque ningún país está exento de tales dificultades, hay muchos que están inmersos en una crisis ambiental. Así pues, te presentamos los 10 países más sucios que, aunque seleccionados primordialmente por la contaminación del aire, no es el único factor que los ha traído a esta lista “sucia”:

- Nigeria: Uniendo a la mala calidad del aire y los desechos que en este país usualmente se depositan en las calles o vertederos no regulados, el 94% de la población está expuesta a niveles de contaminación que rebasan los parámetros establecidos por la Organización Mundial de Salud Algunos vertederos de este país pueden alcanzar las 2400 toneladas métricas de basura.

- Emiratos Árabes Unidos: La producción de petróleo y gas ha favorecido la contaminación del aire, además se han incrementado los vertederos de desechos y no existen normas que regulen esta situación. Frente a ello, la teocracia árabe del país se propuso la creación de una ciudad completamente limpia, es decir, libre de carbón. La hipotética ciudad tendría el nombre de Masdar, ‘Fuente’.

- Nepal. La suciedad de este país se debe a la contaminación del aire, la producción de petróleo y las insuficientes medidas sanitarias para producir alimentos y realizar la recolección de basura. En el 2015 la ciudad de Katmandú, capital de Nepal, sufrió un violento terremoto que afectó seriamente la infraestructura de la ciudad; derivado de ello, los trabajos de reconstrucción han generado un «coctel» perfecto de contaminantes.

- Kuwait. La industria petrolera y el consumo de dicho producto ha provocado la contaminación del agua, la muerte de diversas especies y altas emisiones de CO2. Hacia 1991 tuvo lugar un suceso que aún se comenta para contextualizar los perjuicios que causa la contaminación. Durante un día entero la ciudad se vio oscurecida por una nube ocre que redujo la visibilidad a menos de 500 metros e hizo bajar la temperatura 15 Cº.

- Mongolia. El uso de carbón en actividades cotidianas ha favorecido la mala calidad del aire, lo que provoca que miles de personas mueran al año debido a enfermedades respiratorias. Según los últimos registros, Mongolia ha aumentado el promedio de su temperatura hasta 2.2 Cº. En Ulán Bator, capital de Mongolia, durante algunos «malos días» el contador de pm 2.5 ha registrado un terrorífico 999, la cifra más elevada que puede consignar este aparato.

- Bahrein. Las industrias más populares del país —gas y petróleo— han elevado los niveles de contaminación del aire y agua, además este país ha desestimado el mantenimiento de áreas verdes y el manejo de residuos. De acuerdo con un estudio de la George Washington University, la incidencia del asma infantil está estrechamente vinculada con la polución ambiental; en Bahrein, la incidencia de ésta entre los menores de edad es de 26%.

- Afganistán. Aquí es común que los residuos -domésticos, industriales y médicos- sean tirados en las calles o en cloacas abiertas, contaminando así el río Kabul, principal proveedor de agua potable. Según el Ministerio de Salud de este país, un promedio de tres mil muertes anuales podrían ser adjudicadas a los altos niveles de contaminación; las enfermedades vinculadas a este fenómeno son principalmente respiratorias y cardiovasculares.

- India. Las grandes plantas industriales no sólo han provocado la mala calidad del aire si no la contaminación del río Ganges, uno de los más sucios en el mundo, pues carece de un sistema eficaz de recolección de basura. La contaminación en este país —considerado el más populoso, después de China— es ya legendaria. Los niveles de polución pueden llegar a producir fenómenos francamente patéticos, como en el caso de los «perros azules» de Gwalior, ciudad de la India. Los perros adquieren esta tonalidad por los residuos químicos que son desechados en el río Kasadi.

- Pakistán. Su aire es uno de los más dañinos para respirar, resultado de la actividad industrial. Además, la mayoría de su población no tiene acceso a agua potable segura o servicios sanitarios. Aquí las muertes atribuidas a la contaminación ascienden a 125 mil anualmente, según el Instituto de Métricas y Evaluación de la Salud de la Fundación Gates.

- Bangladesh. Este país se corona con el aire más tóxico del mundo. Así mismo, en algunas de sus ciudades se ha encontrado que el agua consumida contiene cantidades alarmantes de arsénico, lo cual ha incrementado enfermedades como el cáncer .

Bitcoin is hard to understand. So is its carbon footprint.

Story 352511549

In 2013, we found out that Bitcoin mining might be bad for the environment, since the process requires a lot of computing power and therefore a lot of energy, and we were like:

Then in 2017, we heard about findings that said the electricity needed for cryptocurrency would soon outpace what’s available, requiring new power plants to come online to feed the demand, and we were like:

Six months later, we read a study that found that Bitcoin’s energy usage had doubled since that last study came out and was expected to double again in the same amount of time, and we were like:

By the end of 2018, when a new study found that Bitcoin could single-handedly push the planet to 2 degrees C of warming and lock in catastrophic climate change, we were like:

But now, there’s new evidence that Bitcoin’s energy footprint might not be as high as previously reported.

Stephen Colbert Good Luck GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

A recent study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology did a life-cycle assessment of the Bitcoin mining network and arrived at a lower carbon footprint than previous studies. The study’s authors calculated a total of 17.29 metric tons of CO2 equivalent emitted in 2018, as compared to other studies that reported anywhere from 22 to 63 metric tons.

The difference primarily came down to the way they looked at carbon emissions in China. The authors estimate that more than half of all Bitcoin mining takes place there. They claim that earlier assessments assumed carbon emissions from electricity generation were the same everywhere in the country, but that’s not the case. Some regions, like inner Mongolia, burn a lot of coal, while others, like Sichuan, use more hydropower. When the researchers broke down emissions by region, the total global Bitcoin footprint came down significantly.

The findings certainly don’t let those libertarian nerdbucks off the hook. “On the one hand we have these alarmist voices saying we won’t hit the Paris agreement because of Bitcoin only,” Susanne Köhler, one of the authors of the study, told New Scientist. “But on the other hand there are a lot of voices from the Bitcoin community saying that most of the mining is done with green energy and that it’s not high impact.” The truth is somewhere between these extremes.

The problem with all of these estimates is that there just isn’t enough reliable data on the cryptocurrency to calculate its footprint with a high level of certainty. The academic literature on Bitcoin is thin. In this case, the authors attempted to use an established method — a life-cycle assessment— that had not been used in previous studies. But they still had to make several assumptions about where cryptocurrency mining is taking place and what equipment is being used, both of which they think deserve more research. “It is important to highlight that this analysis and its results are characterized by an intrinsic uncertainty,” they write.

In other words, scientists still don’t fully understand what Bitcoin is doing to the planet. Which makes us feel better about the fact that we don’t understand how the hell Bitcoin works in the first place.

One Man Bands [FJ23]

 Cache   

Filmmaking is a collaborative artform. Yet, tens of thousands of filmmakers all over the world shoot projects each week with no dedicated DP, no sound guy, and no assistants. It's just them, a camera, some lenses, lights, and mics. They are one-man/one-woman bands.

<img title="Read more..." src= "data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" alt="" data-wp-more="more" data-wp-more-text="" data-mce-placeholder="1" />This week on the show we hear from a small group of filmmakers who are making waves in the industry despite shooting much, if not most of their work alone -- and in two of the cases, with small, prosumer cameras.

  • There's multi-Vimeo Staff Pick recipient Brandon Li, who's travel docs often feel like narrative shorts.
  • Salvatore "Sal" D'Alia is a New York filmmaker (by way of Italy) who's the brainchild and filmmaker behind Adorama TV's "Through the Lens" Series.
  • And internationally renown director and DP Philip Bloom is back to offer his two cents on what to call yourself if you wear many hats.

Share Your Story with Us

For season 2 of the show, we're looking for filmmakers with stories about overcoming great challenges to complete their projects. Whether or not you succeeded or failed, if you think there's a juicy and educational story with sharing, we want to know about it. The first six people we pick will each get a free music license from show sponsor Song Freedom. Just email radiofilmschool@daredreamer.fm and put "My Story" in the subject line.

Comment on Taste as a Measure of Man.* Please No. by waltzingaustralia

 Cache   
It is a rather sad truth that people often need to find some way of reaffirming their sense of worth. "Insider knowledge" -- or refined taste -- is often how this is accomplished. I feel sorry for them. I know people who "can't" eat anything that isn't absolutely the best, but I have always considered it a gift that I can eat -- and often truly enjoy -- a tremendously wide range of foods, from high-end in Paris to rustic in Mongolia to simple Americana. Of course, the right company helps make things taste better -- but I also think we need to remember that, for most of history, simply having enough to not starve to death was a big deal (and still is in some places), so a bit more gratitude seems to be warranted, rather than culinary exclusivity. So, in other words, agree with your observation and look forward to reading more.

                              Uvs-Nuur lake, Mongolia (credit: Copernicus Sentinel-2/ESA satellite) Uvs-Nuur is a highly saline lake in one of the largest intact watersheds in Central Asia. It is Mongolia's largest lake and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The European Space Agency's SENTINEL-2 , an environmental monitoring satellite, supported by the European Union's Copernicus Program , was designed specifically to deliver data and Earth imagery. Sentinel is equipped with multiple sensors to survey the Earth in the visible, near infrared (N-IR), and short-wave infrared (SW-IR) light wavelengths. The satellite can see differences in vegetation, such as invisible seasonal changes, and minimizes atmospheric distortion in photographic images. Besides the scientific information gathered, the Mongolian lake would look handsome installed on any art gallery wall. WHB
