          Humans Lived in Madagascar 6,000 Years Earlier Than Previously Thought      Cache   Translate Page      

An analysis of butchered animal bones suggests humans had somehow ventured to Madagascar by at least 10,000 years ago, which is 6,000 years earlier than previous evidence suggested. This means humans likely played a key role in the extinction of the island’s large animals.

          Comment on General Debate 13 September 2018 by cmm      Cache   Translate Page      
Yup, I found it interesting to see the immigration patterns to Madagascar being slowly pushed back from 1000 to 4000 years ago, but the 10k year evidence changes that somewhat. Africa is pretty much devoid of any transport technology (on land and on the water) except for the odd dug-out log canoe on the major lakes and estuaries. Most, if not all, of the sea trading up and down the African coast over the last 1000 to 2000 or so years were the Arabian and Persian traders (of slaves and other valuables). However they were almost exclusively coastal traders. Polynesians were also known to have traveled over the ocean ~1000 years ago. It doesn't look like Africans did this on their own which raises some interesting questions. Regardless of what happened 10k years ago, what really matters is now: can Africa stop being such a basket case?

          Re: MADAGASCAR      Cache   Translate Page      
Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world. Poverty rate, school drop-out and criminality rates have never been as high as now. To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...

Description: 

<p>Antananarivo (AFP) - A quelques encablures de la présidence à Antananarivo, les badauds se pressent autour de deux hommes."Si tu ne te sens pas à la hauteur, tu n'as qu'à le dire !", lâche l'un deux.Encore une discussion politique qui tourne vinaigre, à quelques semaines des élections générales ? Non.Un jeu.</p><p>Ils disputent une partie acharnée de "fanorona", un jeu de société traditionnel très populaire à Madagascar, version éloignée des dames occidentales ou du jeu de go asiatique.Plusieurs siècles après son apparition sur la Grande île, il y séduit encore de nombreux adeptes de tous âges.</p><p>Au hasard des quartiers de la capitale malgache, il n'est pas rare de tomber sur un attroupement provoqué par une partie de rue.Ou de distinguer les contours d'un plateau de jeu tracés à même la terre d'une cour d'école.</p><p>"Tu ne fais que des faux-pas et du baratin !", lance d'un ton sec le joueur à son adversaire.Près du palais d'Ambohitsirohitra, l'affrontement fait rage.</p><p>L'un des protagonistes est Raymond Rasaminarivo, un "as" du fanorona, dont la maîtrise lui vaut le surnom de "général".</p><p>Les yeux rivés sur le plateau qui les sépare, son rival Raphaël essaie de se concentrer pour obtenir sa revanche.Une récente défaite face au "général" l'a tellement humilié qu'il refuse de révéler son patronyme.</p><p>"Ce jeu exige de la concentration pour identifier les itinéraires de la victoire et de la prudence pour éviter les pièges", explique-t-il.</p><p>Son prestigieux vis-à-vis prend un malin plaisir à troubler sa réflexion: insolence, insultes...Raphaël ne s'en offusque pas: "Les propos provocateurs de l'adversaire ajoutent du piment au jeu."</p><p></p><p>- Stratégie -</p><p></p><p>Le fanorona se joue sur un plateau rectangulaire griffé de lignes droites et de diagonales à l'intersection desquelles chaque joueur dispose ses 22 pièces.</p><p>L'objectif consiste à "manger" les pièces de l'adversaire en avançant ou en reculant les siennes le long des lignes.La partie s'achève quand un joueur ne peut plus manoeuvrer, encerclé ou faute de pièces.</p><p>Les combinaisons sont presque infinies, la stratégie essentielle.</p><p>"Une pièce peut enchaîner plusieurs coups et un seul coup peut éjecter jusqu'à sept pièces de l'adversaire", précise le directeur technique de la très sérieuse fédération de fanorona, Lantohariseta Andriamampianona."Un joueur peut aussi refuser d'éjecter les pièces de l'adversaire pour éviter des pièges."</p><p>Le jeu accorde au vaincu une seconde manche, la "vela", où le vainqueur part avec un handicap.</p><p>Plusieurs scénarios circulent sur les origines du fanorona et son arrivée sur l'île de l'océan Indien.</p><p>Certains le font naître de l'imagination des premiers habitants de Madagascar venus d'Indonésie au début de notre ère.</p><p>D'autres assurent que son ancêtre n'y a débarqué qu'au XVIIe siècle, avec les premiers marchands arabes.</p><p>Les derniers prétendent qu'il est né à la cour des rois malgaches.Jeu d'initiation à la stratégie militaire, il leur servait aussi d'augure avant la prise d'une grande décision. </p><p>Depuis 27 ans qu'il en décortique les ressorts, le chercheur Eris Rabedaoro n'a acquis aucune certitude sur son origine.Il préfère insister sur sa dimension scientifique.</p><p>"Je me suis aperçu que c'était un parfait schéma de l'univers", confie-t-il."On y retrouve toutes les lois fondamentales de la physique, des mathématiques ou de la psychologie."</p><p></p><p>- "Tout public" -</p><p></p><p>La prise des pièces ? Une allégorie de "la fusion et de la fission nucléaire".Les lignes tracées sur le damier ? "L'image de huit pyramides de Khéops".Le plateau de la version simplifiée du jeu ? "La représentation cubique du globe terrestre".</p><p>Bigre.Penchés sur leur plateau, "Raphaël" et le "général" Rasaminarivo ne vont pas aussi loin: ils voient dans le fanorona un jeu qui "aiguise l'intelligence".</p><p>"Il t'apprend à anticiper, à persévérer", renchérit un autre fondu, Andrianasolo Mamy Riana, "ça te donne de la force pour affronter la vie, ça te rend courageux".</p><p>Ce jeu a gardé un caractère sacré, qui interdit tout pari, mais est populaire dans toute la société, insiste l'homme de la fédération.Si "dans les temps anciens, le fanorona était réservé aux rois et à leurs entourages (...), aujourd'hui il est vraiment devenu tout public", note M. Andriamampionina.</p><p>Dans les quartiers les plus démunis, des pierres ou des pelures d'orange posées à même le sol font souvent office de pions.</p><p>Très prisée des jeunes, une version électronique pour téléphone portable est née il y a quatre ans.Un des premiers jeux vidéo produit, développé et distribué par des Malgaches.</p><p>Gratuit, il a été depuis téléchargé 30.000 fois, se félicite son développeur Mendrika Andriantsihoarana.</p><p>"Un téléchargement en Argentine, un en Chine, deux en France, deux en Allemagne, trois aux États Unis, ça m'a agréablement surpris", souligne-t-il."Je sens qu'on approche de notre but quand on a créé l'e-fanorona: mondialiser le fanorona", s'emballe-t-il.</p><p>En 2012, le jeu est même apparu dans l'un des jeux vidéo les plus célèbres au monde, Assassin's Creed 3. Une consécration.</p><p></p>

          Древнейшие жители Мадагаскара оставили отметины на костях эпиорниса       Cache   Translate Page      

Ученые под руководством Джеймса Хенсфорда (James Hansford) из Лондонского зоологического общества обнаружили следы присутствия людей на Мадагаскаре около 10 тысяч лет назад. До этого самыми древними признаками обитаемости острова были каменные орудия возрастом около 2 – 4 тысяч лет.

Современное население Мадагаскара – малагасийцы – народ австронезийского происхождения. Их язык относится к австронезийской семье. Прибыли они на Мадагаскар приблизительно в I – V веках нашей эры, проделав на каноэ путь с островов современной Индонезии. Приблизительно с 1000 года на остров через Мозамбикский пролив проникают представители африканских народов банту. Но на Мадагаскаре и до них жили люди. Они проникли на остров с африканского побережья. Их присутствие подтверждается археологическими находками и отражено в фольклоре малагасийцев. Немногочисленный народ микеа, живущий на юго-западе острова, предположительно считается потомками этих жителей.

Точная датировка заселения Мадагаскара первой волной людей важна для ответа на вопрос, связано ли с людьми вымирание живших на острове гигантских нелетающих птиц – эпиорнисов (Aepyornis). Рост эпиорнисов достигал пяти метров, а вес четырехсот килограмм. Предполагается, что именно эпиорнисы стали источником арабских легенд о гигантской птице Рух. Окончательно исчезли эти птицы в XVII веке. Часто предполагается, что закат эпиорнисов начался с прибытия на Мадагаскар австронезийских переселенцев, которые охотились на птиц и собирали их яйца. Но нынешняя находка заставляет предположить, что люди тысячелетиями жил бок о бок с эпиорнисами и охотились на них, но это не приводило к вымиранию птиц.

Кости, использованные в нынешнем исследовании, были найдены в 2008 году старателем, искавшим сапфиры в центральной части острова. Он принял их за кости динозавров, но палеонтологи определили, что они принадлежат гигантским лемурами, бегемотам, черепахам, крокодилам и эпиорнисам. При подробном изучении на двухметровых костях ног эпиорниса были найдены характерные отметины, оставленные во время разделки птицы каменными орудиями. Радиоуглеродный анализ показывает, что возраст костей около 10,5 тысяч лет, таким образом, отметины становятся самым ранним известным свидетельством нахождения людей на Мадагаскаре.

Исследование опубликовано в журнале Science Advances.

          RELEASE: 45 Cities Pledge to Conserve and Restore Forests, Citing Public Health, Water and Climate Benefits      Cache   Translate Page      

RELEASE: 45 Cities Pledge to Conserve and Restore Forests, Citing Public Health, Water and Climate Benefits

Amman, Auckland, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Mexico City, Oslo, Sacramento and more cities representing over 164 million residents join Cities4Forests initiative

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 12, 2018) – Floods and landslides are wreaking havoc on cities from Bangkok to Bangalore. Urban heat islands are exacerbating sweltering temperatures from Los Angeles to São Paulo. Concerns about drinking water are growing from Bogota to Johannesburg to Jakarta. Rising sea levels threaten Miami and Mumbai alike. Now, a coalition of cities has emerged to protect their residents from these threats by deploying a highly underrated resource: forests.

Today at the Global Climate Action Summit, 45 cities across six continents joined the Cities4Forests initiative, committing to conserve and restore their forests while making residents more aware of the vast benefits of trees. Cities joining include Addis Ababa, Bogotá, Kigali, Kochi, Quito, São Paulo, Toronto and Vienna, with many more across the globe and in the U.S. such as Detroit, Los Angeles, New York City, Oakland, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

“Cities have invisible footprints on faraway forests that most people aren't aware of. The commodities that we consume - timber, paper, palm oil, beef, soybeans – can be responsible for destroying forests. And the benefits that forests provide to cities are underappreciated too,” said Frances Seymour, Distinguished Senior Fellow at World Resources Institute. “The more we learn about how trees interact with the atmosphere, the more we realize how forests influence the climate on both a local and a global scale. Forests are an important source of climate resilience and stability for people, no matter where we live.”

Trees and forests are immensely valuable to cities and their residents. The Cities4Forests initiative works at three levels: inner, nearby and faraway forests. Trees within cities—the inner forests in parks, boulevards, and yards—help filter air, moderate temperatures and lower energy bills. Trees in the watersheds surrounding cities—nearby forests—buffer against flooding and landslides, lower water treatment costs, offer exercise opportunities and give residents an escape from hectic urban life. Trees in faraway forests, particularly in the tropics, sequester carbon to help combat climate change, generate rain for the world’s farm belts, provide an array of essential products and medicinal ingredients, and host the majority of the world’s land-based biodiversity.

“As the City of Trees, we in Sacramento recognize the important role forests play in promoting clean air and water, and enhancing the quality of life of all residents,” said Mayor Darrell Steinberg, of Sacramento. “From their ability to curb climate change to the miles of hiking and biking trails they provide, without forests, our city cannot truly thrive. Cities4Forests will help us, and other cities, share the best ways to prioritize, restore, and protect the trees that make our communities vibrant and healthy.” 

“As Antananarivo is hit by cyclones and tropical storms every year, I fully understand the importance of protecting and restoring trees and forests inside and nearby our city,” said Mayor Lalao Ravalomanana, of Antananarivo, Madagascar. “Green areas can reduce our risks from natural disasters, support climate action strategies and contribute to a more healthy and resilient environment.”

The 45 founding cities of Cities4Forests include cities from every continent except Antarctica, representing 164.9 million residents in their metropolitan areas (see the full list below). Participating cities share a commitment to reduce deforestation, restore forests and help manage forests both inside and outside city limits. Each city joining the Cities4Forests initiative has committed to:

  • Understand. To assess their reliance and impacts on trees and forests.
  • Engage. To raise awareness among residents about the benefits forests provide, communicate what people can do to make a positive impact and collaborate across government agencies to improve the health of trees and forests.
  • Innovate. To harness the power of forests to help achieve climate goals, secure clean and stable water supplies, reduce stormwater runoff, improve public health and provide recreation.
  • Act. To implement new tools, local policies, voluntary programs, investments and public procurement decisions to meet these goals.
  • Progress. To engage at the three Cities4Forest scales (inner, nearby, and faraway forests), participating in at least one level by 2020, two by 2022 and all three by 2025.
  • Share. To share insights, experiences, and innovations to inspire ambition and mobilize action among cities around the world.

“Conserving our forests is a top priority in Mexico City’s climate action plan,” said Tanya Müller García, Mexico City’s Secretary of Environment. “In fact, 59% of the city’s territory is conserved land that provides multiple environmental benefits – absorbing carbon emissions, protecting our water supply, regulating the city’s temperature and creating space for biodiversity. These benefits are fundamental for Mexico City’s sustainability and for our residents’ quality of life. And we recognize that forests outside of the city’s boundaries need to be protected too. Mexico City is the first local government in Latin America to launch a Forest Carbon Bond. Now with our commitment to Cities4Forests, we continue advancing even more ambitious climate goals.”

Cities4Forests is managed by World Resources Institute, Pilot Projects and REVOLVE. Cities joining the program can benefit from their technical assistance to measure tree cover canopy and prioritize where to plant trees for maximum benefit; increased capacity to apply for funding for tree planting; advice on where to look for financing to protect watersheds or restore degraded areas; help writing sustainable procurement guidelines for timber, construction materials and paper products; and much more.

“I am an enthusiastic city dweller in a capital surrounded by deep forests. I know how vital these accessible, yet quiet forests are to the health and well being of the people of Oslo,” said Norway's Minister of Climate and Environment, Ola Elvestuen, who is supporting the initiative. “Indeed, forests are incredibly valuable to cities and urban citizens for contemplation, exercise, by providing improved air quality and cleaner drinking water. Still, forests further away – particularly in the tropics – are even more important. They support rainfall for food production and food security worldwide and they combat climate change by storing massive amounts of carbon. Halting and reversing tropical deforestation is critical to retain these benefits, and only with cities and their citizens on board can we succeed.”

City officials will also benefit from a peer-to-peer exchange network to learn from other cities and highlight success cases, and a citizen engagement and communications package.
