It surprises most millennials to learn that only about 10 percent of all retail purchases are actually made online. Each semester, when I ask hundreds of undergraduate business students to estimate, they consistently guess that between a quarter and half of all retail spending happens on the internet. But this holiday shopping season, as ever in the past, the overwhelming majority of purchases will still happen within four physical walls of a store.This should encourage the thousands of retailers anchored in strip malls, lifestyle centers, and mixed-use developments. The National Retail Federation expects holiday retail sales – not counting car, gas and restaurant purchases – in November and December this year to increase up to 4 percent over last year, to as much as US$682 billion.Stores will need the money in order to avoid being added to 2017’s record-breaking roster of retail bankruptcies, store closures and layoffs, which included landmark brands like Toys R Us and RadioShack.A reason to visitTraditional retailers must give consumers good reasons to visit their stores, beyond product selection and good value. Joe Pine and James Gilmore’s 1999 book “The Experience Economy” foretold how savvy companies, like Apple and American Girl, excel by staging compelling experiences that teach, entertain or inspire customers.The main asset of a physical store in a digital world is human staffing. Even if a shopper doesn’t want help, a smile acknowledging his or her presence encourages connection. Front-line employees can ask customers about their kids, in-laws or Thanksgiving meal planning. That can lead to an authentic personal connection through which employees can discover a shopper’s unique wants and respond with products on the shelves, or ordered and shipped for free to the customer’s home. An in-person encounter can become a seamless blend of the online and physical worlds.Even Walmart, America’s largest retailer, is moving to a more experiential model. In hopes of boosting sales, its 4,700 stores will host 20,000 parties with Santa before the New Year. Customers will be able to take pictures, test out toys and get tots excited.The company has another advantage over online sellers, too: nine in 10 Americans live within 15 minutes of a Walmart store. A thousand Walmarts now let customers drive up to the storefront to pick up online grocery orders the same day they’re purchased, at no additional charge. That rivals Amazon’s Fresh grocery service, which comes at an extra cost and often doesn’t deliver until the next day.Emotional connection in a digital ageBeyond face-to-face service, successful companies today must develop a deeper connection with their customers, whether online or off. Store-based retailers can show their values in ways that at times can take on a very personal meaning for shoppers and store owners alike. I have been a loyal customer of Gallery Furniture in Houston for years. Owner Jim McIngvale, known as “Mattress Mack,” is a marketing maverick known for his decades of zany TV commercials pledging to “Save you money!”After the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, he opened his stores to anyone in need of a place to stay. Some came by boat, with only the clothes they were wearing. McIngvale welcomed thousands of Houstonians to sleep on his inventory of mattresses. He sheltered, fed and prayed for flood victims.On Halloween, McIngvale flew 50 first responders to Game 6 of the World Series in Los Angeles, giving those lucky Astros fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience and emotional lift in the wake of natural disaster.Like other retailers gearing up for the holidays, Gallery Furniture is promoting “monster sales.” But with the floodwaters gone and the Astros crowned as baseball’s world champions, McIngvale’s community spirit seems to have positioned his chain as more than a brand, destination or store. Beyond capturing market share, Gallery Furniture may have an advantage in customer sentiment.Best Buy is buzzing againCommunity involvement isn’t the only way retailers can regain strength. National electronics chain Best Buy has ridden a roller coaster over the last 20 years: In 2004 it was recognized by Forbes magazine as “Company of the Year.” By 2012 it was dismissed as a real-world showroom for cheaper online retailers. In August 2017, though, its stock price hit an all-time high.As Amazon grew, Best Buy defended itself, becoming a top 10 retailer in sales by matching competitors’ prices and investing in personal services like Geek Squad. The company also trained workers to help customers understand technology: Product descriptions can list a camera’s functions, but a knowledgeable employee can explain how it works with lenses, editing software or with other devices. That allows the company to take advantage of the ever-increasing number of tech-connected items in smart homes, from Nest thermostats to 4K TVs – which require more instruction to set up and operate than their analog predecessors.In the face of online competition, brick-and-mortar retailers must give consumers unique in-store experiences that build emotional connections with shoppers. Black Friday promos on toasters or iPads won’t cut it. They have to provide heartfelt feelings of surprise, delight and excitement – and actual help and useful advice. Shopping on a couch via a mobile app is efficient, but a store can be magical and memory-making. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Urbandale, Iowa – Workers at Pacific Architects and Engineers Inc. will begin contract negotiations on Jan. 21 after winning a “landslide victory” in their fight to join the American Postal Workers Union Local 44.A four-month organizing drive at PAE conducted by Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (Iowa CCI) and the Des Moines, Iowa, APWU Local 44 resulted in a vote of 18-8 on Oct. 21 in favor of a union at the Urbandale location, which is a subcontractor of the U.S. Postal Service. The organizing drive started in July when a group of 18 PAE workers, mostly Latinas, met with Iowa CCI organizers Emily Schott and Madeline Cano.Schott told WW: “The most moving thing to me when the workers first came to us was how long they had been working there and how horribly the management was treating them after so many loyal years to the company.”Despite working for PAE for over 10 years, and some for as long as 17 years, workers were harassed and subjected to unreasonable production quotas. Nearly all the workers had injuries from the repetitive nature of the work, and the company was doing nothing to make the work safer. Along with company plans for cutting benefits and freezing wages, management circulated memos pressuring workers to switch to temporary positions, which would mean “abysmal health insurance and ridiculous hours” for the workers, according to Schott.PAE is a major recipient of U.S. government money as a subcontractor for the Pentagon. According to militaryindustrialcomplex.com, PAE has been awarded more than $562 million in military contracts since 2007, making its top investors very wealthy even as it tries to nickel and dime its workers.APWU Local 44 President Mike Bates has been a union steward for 14 years and president for the past four years. He became involved with the union drive after Iowa CCI organizer Matthew Covington reached out to him for help in organizing the Urbandale PAE workers.“The union wanted them to know the importance to stay together and in solidarity because companies do not want to be unionized,” Bates said.APWU Local 44 is described by Bates as “progressive” in its efforts to organize the private sector, with 784 members representing the Mail Contractors of America in Des Moines and Kansas City.“We also talked about their expectations when it came to being represented by a union,” Bates said. “Their number one response was dignity and respect in the workplace, followed by job security, pay and benefits and a strong voice within the company.”Bates met with the PAE workers on Aug. 8 and every Monday thereafter, as well as petitioning the National Labor Relations Board in September. The final vote in October was conducted by the workers, excluding managers, supervisors, guards and members of the temporary workforce.Schott said of the vote: “While the [presidential] election results across the country and particularly in Iowa might mean a big blow to workers’ rights, this recent victory proves that people are ready and willing to stand up for themselves when their dignity is under attack.”The union vote in October was a major step on the road ahead, but there are still obstacles in the future. After being blindsided by the vote, the company retaliated by firing three workers.“The union feels this is coercion on the part of the company to get employees out of the bargaining unit,” Bates said. Refusing to back down, the union will file a labor charge with the NLRB if the workers are not reinstated.Bates wants WW readers to know that if they are unhappy with the level of respect, pay and benefits on the job, they should reach out to the proper union and organize their workforce. “If you work in the mailing industry in America, contact the American Postal Workers Union and let us help you!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
“It’s important to send the entire root system and the adjacent soil, rather than only a soil sample, because we can only detect nematodes in a soil sample if the number around that plant is very high,” he explained. “But as few as 10 nematodes can cause damage, so we want to make sure we aren’t missing even a small number.”Needle nematodes are temperature-sensitive and either die or burrow deeper in the soil once the soil temperatures reach 85 degrees, typically toward the beginning or middle of July. For this reason, samples should be taken before the soil temperature gets too high – about four to six weeks after germination, Faghihi said.Treatments for needle nematodes include topical pesticides that target early-season pests. Seed treatments may or may not be effective, Faghihi said. But there is no way to prevent infestation. If nematodes have appeared in a field in the past, they likely will reappear when conditions are cool and wet. By Gary Truitt – Jun 9, 2016 Cross-contaminationNeedle nematodes do not spread across fields on their own but by cross-contamination, such as when soil is moved from an infested field to a non-infested field. Crops typically grown in cool, moist locations, such as mint, have a greater chance of containing needle nematodes that could be spread to corn.After the nematodes are gone, the root system of affected plants will branch out and the plant will return to normal, although with a reduced yield, Faghihi said. Additional stressors, such as subsequent dry weather, however, may add to the damage.Needle nematodes are not the only nematode species that can cause significant crop damage. In Indiana, lance and lesion nematodes are potential problems during the growing season and can attack soybeans as well as corn. Like needle nematodes, a history of lance or lesion nematodes is a strong indicator that the worms could reappear. Additionally, growers in central Indiana may encounter the root knot nematode, which can affect all crops, including corn, soybeans and melons.For more information about nematodes or treatments, contact Faghihi at 765-494-5901 or [email protected], or visit the Purdue Nematology website.Soil and root samples may be sent to: Nematology Laboratory, Department of Entomology, Purdue University, 901 W. State St., West Lafayette, IN 47907-2089. Sampling costs $10 to $20 per sample. Sampling windows and methods for specific pests and crops are listed athttps://extension.entm.purdue.edu/pestcrop/2016/Issue2/.— Jamal-FaghihiA cool, wet spring may put corn planted in sandy soils at greater risk of attack by the destructive needle nematode, Purdue Extension nematologistJamal Faghihi says. Nematodes are microscopic, cylindrical worms that live in a variety of habitats, sometimes living parasitically in or around plant and animal hosts. The needle nematode feeds around the roots of corn and other grasses, requires moisture and prefers loose, sandy soil, making corn in northern and western Indiana a prime target, Faghihi said. “The needle nematode must have certain conditions to show up. If spring is cool and wet, the likelihood of its showing up is very high,” he said. “In the northern and western parts of the state, the nematodes are a very prominent problem and can cause a lot of damage.”Short roots, yellow plantsSymptoms of needle nematode infestation in corn include short, brown roots with clubbed ends and stunted yellow plants. While the symptoms may initially resemble those of herbicide injury or moisture damage, symptoms from these causes will be more widespread across the field, while nematode damage will appear in random patches.Nematodes are nearly impossible to see without a microscope, so the only way to receive a definitive diagnosis is to send a sample to the Purdue Nematology Laboratory or other nematology labs for testing, Faghihi said. The sample should include the entire root ball of the plant and should be kept cool and moist.\ Purdue Nematologist says Cool, Wet Spring may Increase risk of Needle Nematodes Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Previous articleReducing the RFS, Bad for the Environment and Economy, Farmers Tell EPANext articleDonnelly Presses China on Biotech Traits Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Nematologist says Cool, Wet Spring may Increase risk of Needle…

Devised by the science and technology ministry, it obliges ISPs to retain traffic logs of their customers for at least a year. An opposition amendment bars police or intelligence officials from using such data without court permission.But how such data retention will work in practice has not been spelled out and no official body has been given authority to shut down websites considered to have “undermined” a list of social values. Freedom of expression is upheld in the Constitution, whose article 20 guarantees the right to “freely send or receive truthful information by any medium of communication” and whose article 18.3 protects confidentiality of postal, telegraphic and phone messages “except when there is a court order.” This has led privacy campaigners and prominent lawyers to denounce the new law as unconstitutional.

It has been contended that the Government’s notification, dated March 20, 2020, which supersedes a Public Notice issued by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on December 19, 2019, is a subjugation of Rule of Law and judicial protocol as the 2019 notice is under challenge and being heard by the Supreme Court itself. With regard to the Government’s Rs. 20,000 crore Central Vista project, the DDA issued a Public Notice inviting objections against proposed changes in land use in December 2019. This notification was challenged in the Delhi High Court, by one Rajeev Suri, as ultra vires Section 11A of the Delhi Development Act 1957 as well as being beyond the powers of DDA to do so. It was further contested that the plan was not in conformity with the Master Plan of Delhi 2021 (MPD2021) and in violation of “larger laws of the country”. The Top Court later transferred the matter to itself. On March 20, 2020 the Centre notified a change in land use pertaining to approximately 86 acres of land in the heart of Lutyens Delhi, marked by structures like the Parliament, Rashtrapati Bhavan, India Gate, North Block and South Block amongst others. The same petitioner, Rajeev Suri, has moved the Apex Court with this fresh plea against the Centre’s notification. Urging the Court to quash the March 2020 notification issued by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, the petitioner argues that the decision is in violation of a citizen’s extended version of Right to Life guaranteed under Article 21. Calling it a brash move, Suri claims it will deprive people of enjoying highly treasured open and green spaces. “(The notification) is violative of Article 21 of Constitution of India and, violates the extended version of Article 21 the Right to life, guaranteed by the Constitution of India. That Respondent No. 1 brashly issued Notification No. SO 1192 (E) dated 20th March 2020, changing land use, which will deprive residents of Delhi and citizens of India a vast chunk of highly treasured open and green space in the Central Vista area, available for public, semi-public, social and recreational activity, stands against Article 21, Right to Life the right to enjoyment of a wholesome life.” The plea further invokes Article 49 of the Constitution to assert that the State is obligated to protect places and objects of national importance. Citing the Public Trust Doctrine to buttress this point, the petitioner urges that it is “upon the State to protect such resources for the use of the general public, rather than to permit it only for use of a certain class or section of the people.” Moving on, Suri points out that the March 2020 notification is contrary to MPD2021 and places chapter-wise details of such contradictions. It is argued that while Chapter 8 of MPD2021 seeks to decentralize government office spaces in the National Capital Region, the new notification, “in stark contrast of the vision and mandate of Chapter 8”, seeks to increase government offices and cramp up the limited space available in Central Vista. The notification is also contested as negligent and disregardful of Chapter 10, which articulates a special place for conservation of heritage buildings and heritage zones. Though the Chapter emphasises that “built heritage of Delhi needs to be protected, nourished and nurtured, and the aim of all the agencies must frame policies and strategies for conservation, with appropriate action plans”, the Government notification is in contradiction, it is submitted. According to Chapter 16, continues Suri, Zonal Plans must be prepared within 12 months of approval of MPD 2021. However, no Zonal Development Plans have been drawn up for Zone D, which is subject of the December 2019 Public Notice. The petitioner also highlights further discrepancies with regard to Chapters 9,11 and 17. Alluding to these, it is stated on the whole that the Centre “is being irresponsible and legally disrespectful to its own statutory document, the Master Plan Delhi MPD 2021.” It has additionally been prayed that the Centre and DDA be restrained from making any modifications or alterations pursuant to the March 2020 notification as the Centre ought not to have taken such action while the matter is pending before Supreme Court in the first place. “The Union of India…has overreached this Hon’ble Court, acted prematurely, with haste, displaying derogation of Rule of Law and scant regard of orders of this Hon’ble Court.”Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Story

Game 3 is Friday night in Utah.After trailing by 25 points at halftime of the 110-96 loss in the series opener, the Jazz jumped out to an early lead in this one and led by as many as 19 in the first half.Houston regained the lead in the third quarter but couldn’t keep pace with the Jazz in the fourth as their normally potent offense went cold.James Harden had 32 points and 11 assists, and Chris Paul added 23 points as Houston fell to the Jazz for the first time this season after winning the first five meetings.Houston was down by one entering the fourth but Utah scored eight straight points on 3-pointers from Dante Exum and Jae Crowder before Mitchell capped it with a nifty one-handed follow dunk to make it 100-94 .Mitchell missed a jumper and sailed above three Rockets to grab the rebound and slam it down with one hand. He did it right near the Jazz bench and his teammates went wild, cheering and pretending to fall backward on each other in awe.Harden made a basket after that before Utah scored another eight straight points, with two 3s from Ingles, to make it 108-96 with 4 1/2 minutes left.Harden ended a 2 ½-minute Houston scoring drought with a 3-pointer about a minute later that was the start of a 9-3 run that got the Rockets within 111-105 with 1:46 left. But Rudy Gobert made one of two free throws before Exum put it out of reach with a dunk.Utah led by nine before Houston used a 16-5 run to go up 71-69 for its first lead since it was 6-5 with about seven minutes left in the third. The Jazz went back up 86-85 by the end of the period.After taking just four shots in Game 1 and finishing with 11 points, Gobert got going early Wednesday and had 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting by halftime. But he was mostly quiet after the break, and finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds.TIP-INSJazz: Coach Quin Snyder said before the game that he didn’t know when point guard Ricky Rubio would return. … Utah assistant Igor Kokoskov was hired as head coach of the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. … Ingles got a technical in the second quarter for arguing with Paul.Rockets: Luc Mbah a Moute had four points and four rebounds in his second game back after missing the first series after dislocating his right shoulder on April 10. … Paul also received a technical for barking at Ingles. … Capela finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds.UP NEXTThe series moves to Utah where Game 3 is Friday and Game 4 will be played on Sunday.

The reformed Advocates’ Graduated Fee Scheme (AGFS) will ensure that pay better reflects the actual work being done by criminal defence advocates and that advocates are being fairly remunerated for work in more complex cases.The changes will bring the scheme in line with modern practices, taking into account the fact that more and more evidence is submitted electronically.The process of determining fees will be simplified so that advocates can better understand how they will be paid for their work before they take on a case.The new scheme is part of ongoing reforms to deliver a modern and effective justice system, whilst ensuring that legal aid is available in cases where it is most needed.A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: The government previously consulted on the fee proposals and has taken on feedback from professionals to help shape the scheme.Significant changes have been made to the original proposals to ensure that the vital contribution of junior barristers and solicitor advocates is better recognised in the new scheme.The changes will come into effect on 1 April 2018 and will keep spend on fees at the current level, so that the reforms come at no additional cost to the tax payer.NotesThe AGFS consultation response can be found on GOV.UK. These changes will create a simpler and more modern pay system for defence advocates in legal aid-funded criminal cases. We have listened to the views of legal professionals to ensure that advocates will be paid in a way that better reflects the reality of the work they do.
Harvard men’s basketball head coach Tommy Amaker has been selected for induction into the Washington Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame, adding to the growing list of honors he has received this offseason. The ceremony will be held Sept. 24 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., as part of “An Evening with the Legends of the Game” event.In six seasons at Harvard, Amaker has reinvented the Crimson into an Ivy League power with a national presence. Under his guidance Harvard has experienced an unprecedented run of success, highlighted by back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances and three straight Ivy League championships. Harvard has also posted four consecutive 20-win seasons and is 112-66 (.639) overall with Amaker on the sidelines, 54-30 (.642) in Ivy League play.During the 2010-11 season, Harvard won its first Ivy crown, going 23-6 and 12-2 in the Ancient Eight, and followed that performance by winning a program best 26 games during the 2011-12 campaign en route to the program’s first trip to the NCAA tournament since 1946. The Crimson also earned the first national ranking in program history that season, reaching as high as No. 22 in the AP Poll and No. 21 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll.In 2012-13 the Crimson captured its third straight Ivy title with a 20-10 overall record and an 11-3 conference mark. Harvard then upset No. 3 seed New Mexico in the NCAA tournament to advance to the Round of 32, marking the first postseason win in program history. Following the season Amaker was named the Clarence “Big House” Gaines College Basketball Coach of the Year Award, presented to the top minority basketball coach in NCAA Division I, the NABC District 13 Coach of the Year and was honored with the Harvard Foundation’s Leadership Award for Outstanding Leadership in Harvard Athletics and Excellence in Fostering Character, Integrity, and Intercultural Cooperation in College Athletics.Amaker’s student-athletes have been rewarded with many individual accolades as well, including 16 All-Ivy League honors, a pair of Ivy League Rookie of the Year awards, and one Ivy League Player of the Year nod. This last year’s squad was no exception, as four Crimson were named to the all-conference teams while freshman Siyani Chambers, the Ancient Eight’s Rookie of the Year, became the first freshman in conference history to be named to the first team.A native of Falls Church, Va., Amaker starred at W.T. Woodson High School before heading off to Duke where he would lead the Blue Devils to four NCAA tournament appearances and win the Henry Iba Corinthian Award as the nation’s top defensive player. Amaker is already a member of the W.T. Woodson Hall of Fame, the Duke Sports Hall of Fame, and this summer was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.Amaker will be joined at the event by his former coach at Duke and Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Mike Krzyzewski, who will accept the Nell and John Wooden Leadership in Coaching Award.

Notre Dame alumna Haley Scott DeMaria, who made an inspirational comeback from critical injuries sustained in a 1992 bus accident involving the Irish swimming team, will deliver the 2012 Commencement address, University spokesman Dennis Brown told The Observer. DeMaria will also receive an honorary degree at the May 20 ceremony, to take place in Notre Dame Stadium. In a release, University President Fr. John Jenkins said he believes DeMaria’s address will provide an appropriate message for those graduating. “The courage, perseverance and faith Haley has demonstrated over the past 20 years have been remarkable and are a shining example for us all,” he said. “She has spoken to scores of groups across the country of the many challenges she faced in recovering from injuries suffered in the accident, always with a focus on God’s grace and the love and support she received from her family, friends and Notre Dame.” “I’m sure that her words will be as inspirational to our graduates as they have been to so many others.” Former United States Secretary of Defense and director of the Central Intelligence Agency Robert Gates delivered last year’s commencement address. DeMaria suffered a broken back and was paralyzed after a team bus returning from a meet against Northwestern slid off the Indiana Toll Road during a snowstorm Jan. 24, 1992. Freshmen Meghan Beeler and Colleen Hipp died in the accident. Most of the other passengers on board suffered injuries, with DeMaria the most seriously hurt. Doctors told DeMaria she likely would spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. A week after the accident, she regained feeling in her legs. DeMaria was standing and walking within a month. DeMaria returned to take classes in the spring of 1992, and began swimming in the fall. On Oct. 29, 1993, she completed her comeback, swimming the 50-yard freestyle – and winning her heat. DeMaria has said she is honored to share the story of her incredible comeback. “It is moving, gratifying and inspiring to speak to people about my recovery,” she has said. “It is a gift to pass along hope.” DeMaria has received several notable honors for her amazing comeback, including the Spirit of Notre Dame Award, Honda Award for Inspiration and Gene Autry Courage in Sport Award. She was named Woman of the Year by the National Women’s Leadership Conference in 1994 and a fellow of the Institute for International Sport. DeMaria is also the first vice president for the Notre Dame Monogram Club and will begin her two-year service as president starting in 2013. DeMaria graduated in 1995, and now lives in Annapolis, Md., with her husband, 1995 alum Jamie DeMaria, and two sons. She has shared her story in a book and has plans for a movie.

Warmer weather lures black vultures north where they are killing calves The federally protected black vulture is most common in South America but as temperatures rise the vulture has extended its range, first into the southeastern U.S. and now into Midwestern states like Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois. Farmers in those states are reporting the loss of newborn livestock as black vultures swoop down and peck calves to death. Lambs, goats, foals and other small animals have also been victimized. Black vultures and the much more common turkey vultures play a critical role in our ecosystem, cleaning up dead carcasses. But black vultures attack young, live animals, sometimes during the birthing process and farmers and ranchers are grappling with ways to protect vulnerable livestock. Black vultures are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Vultures can be shot but only with a permit and proof of damage is required to get the permit. Virginia Music Festivals Unite at SummitBound by a goal to make Virginia’s music festival scene even better, members of Virginia-based live music production companies gathered in a two-day summit to examine ways to strengthen Virginia’s music festival landscape. Representatives from fan favorite festivals like Devils Backbone Hoopla, Bonnaroo, Front Porch Fest, Rooster Walk, Red Wing Roots Music Festival, FloydFest and others were present. Virginia has become a premier destination for live music fans and the group is committed to maintaining and improving the festival experience in the Commonwealth. Top Climate Official at National Park Service Resigns In 2011, Archaeologist Marcy Rockman became the first person ever appointed to study climate change’s impact on cultural resources in National Parks. That year, a republican controlled Congress cut her budget by 70 percent, ensuring that her program remained a party of one. Rockman was responsible for studying the effects of climate change on archeological sites, cultural landscapes and historic buildings. Her job was part of the National Park Service’s Climate Change Response Program, which was created to better understand the effects of climate change on National Park Service owned sites and resources. On Twitter, Rockman stated that she resigned after “a series of pressures from the NPS that required me to spend ever more time & energy fighting for the right to exist & perform basic tasks.” Rockman also cited gender inequality and harassment as an additional reason for leaving the National Park Service.
“The U.S. Forest Service is excited to partner with Foothills Conservancy on this newest acquisition,” said Nicholas Larson, North Carolina Forest Service district ranger. “Chestnut Mountain will be a great addition to the Forest, with easy access to Lenoir. We are working with both the Blue Ridge Horseman’s Association and Northwestern N.C. Mountain Bike Alliance to improve and add to the existing trail system.” The Find Your Virtual Park page on NPS.gov provides resources that feature the sights and sounds of parks, games, videos, webcams and kid-friendly activities. The National Park Foundation offers a series of virtual escapes as well as suggestions for home-based park experiences. Photo of Pisgah National Forest, Blue Ridge Mountains from Getty Images National Parks Week begins Saturday Earth logs its second-warmest March on record From April 18- April 26, the U.S. will celebrate National Park Week. Due to the disruption of COVID-19, this year’s celebrations are going digital. While holed up at home, you can still journey to national parks through a variety of online activities including virtual tours, scavenger hunts, trivia contests and junior ranger programs. On March 7, the U.S. Forest Service purchased a former inholding in Pisgah National Forest from Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina, the organization said in a press release. The 96-acre property located off U.S Highway 321 in Caldwell County, between Lenoir and Blowing Rock, creates opportunity to extend trails in the Boone Fork recreation area near Mulberry Creek and Blowing Rock. Mother Earth may be taking a much-needed breather right now, but the globe continues to warm. Following the warmest January ever recorded and the second-warmest February, the planet has now logged its second-hottest March on record, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said Thursday. NOAA warns that models are already suggesting that 2020 could be the warmest year on record. “It does look like there’s a better-than-half probability that we will finish the year warmest on record,” Deke Arndt, chief of the monitoring branch at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, said in a news briefing.
