  • Morocco Rabat short tour Rabat (Arabic الرباط, transliterated ar-Rabāṭ or ar-Ribāṭ, literally "Fortified Place"), is the capital and third largest city of the Kingdom of Morocco with a population of approximately 650000 (2010). It is also the capital of the Rabat-Salé-Zemmour-Zaer region. The city is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. On the facing shore of the river lies Salé, Rabat's bedroom community. Together with Temara the cities account for a combined metropolitan population of 1.8 million. Silting problems have diminished the Rabat's role as a port; however, Rabat and Salé still maintain important textile, food processing and construction industries. In addition, tourism and the presence of all foreign embassies in Morocco serve to make Rabat one of the most important cities in the country. Controversy surrounds sweatshop labour by major multinational corporations in the area (see Salé).

  • Life in Aucklands harbours and estuaries - the threat of stormwater and sediment Head off on a journey of discovery with TVs Judy Bailey to learn about the wonderful and complex web of life in Aucklands harbours and estuaries. Relying on clean water, these unique marine ecosystems are under threat. Stormwater run off containing contaminants from cars, building materials and urban activities is heading straight down kerbside drains and into our harbours and estuaries, and sediment from land cleared for development or deforested is silting them up. While the ARC and many other councils, community groups and individuals are working hard to reverse this, its up to us all to learn how we can protect our great blue backyard.

  • Disasters are a development concern (module 3) Frequently disasters are seen as extreme hazard events, which are beyond our control. This film seeks to demonstrate that rather than simply hazard driven, disasters are the result of vulnerabilities and failures in development accumulated over many years, such as unsafe conditions, dynamic pressures and socio-economic and political systems. The film is aimed at development practitioners, politicians and donors and argues that disasters are a development concern and asks for risk reduction to be mainstreamed into development planning.
  • FORDWHICH IN THE 60s SMALLEST TOWN IN ENGLAND IT LIES IN KENT HAVING A POPULATION OF 370 The historic Town of Fordwich lies on the Great Stour river, about two miles east of Canterbury, just south of the A28 road to Thanet, close to Sturry. Bus and train links to Fordwich and Canterbury are good. There is evidence for a settlement at Fordwich in Roman times, and this developed over the centuries until Fordwich became the port of Canterbury. At that time the river was much wider than it is now and led directly into the Wantsum Channel, which separated the Isle of Thanet from the mainland. The stone for building Canterbury Cathedral, brought from Caen in France, was brought upriver and unloaded at Fordwich, and in the Cathedral Archives are records from 1424 and 1425 listing the transport of 400 tons of stone for the Cathedral. Gradually the river, and the Wantsum Channel, started to silt up, despite several schemes to keep the waterways clear. The silting-up, together with the opening of the Canterbury and Whitstable Railway (the "Crab and Winkle Line") in 1830 impacted Fordwich's economic importance to Canterbury. Later, with the arrival of road transport, its fate was largely sealed. Thus, the nature of Fordwich changed. Today it's a small hamlet who's river is navigated purely by small pleasure craft. Links with its illustrious past do remain however. Fordwich is a member, or 'limb', of the Cinque Port of Sandwich, and the Mayor Deputy of Fordwich still pays annual 'Ship Money' of 6s 8d to the Mayor of Sandwich at a ceremony held at Sandwich Town Hall ...

The Bengali film is directed by Ritwik Ghatak. Writer Adwait Mull Burman, Ritwik Ghatak scored the music in the film. The story is the tale is set among Malo fishermen living by the Titash river. Kishore's (Prabir Mitra) bride (Kaberi Choudhury) is abducted by river bandits. She escapes and is rescued by the fisher folk, with whom she lives and raises her child. Kishore becomes a madman and is offered shelter by his wife but they recognise each other only before they die. The child is raised by Basanti (Rosy Samad) while the river starts silting up and urban traders drive out the fisherfolk. The tightly cut beginning of the abduction sequence has the closed structure of a myth which the film gradually opens out into history, especially through the archetypally constructed male and female spaces. Kishore represents an unprecedented amalgamation of Christ and Shiva, usually regarded as contradictory figures, while the thrice-born female figure, associated with the motif of the nurturing river, constitutes a movement of both historical displacement and deliverance.

  • The World is sinking: Dubai islands 'falling into the sea' But the World, the ambitiously-constructed archipelago of islands shaped like the countries of the globe, is sinking back into the sea, according to evidence cited before a property tribunal. The islands were intended to be developed with tailor-made hotel complexes and luxury villas, and sold to millionaires. They are off the coast of Dubai and accessible by yacht or motor boat. Now their sands are eroding and the navigational channels between them are silting up, the British lawyer for a company bringing a case against the state-run developer, Nakheel, has told judges. "The islands are gradually falling back into the sea," Richard Wilmot-Smith QC, for Penguin Marine, said. The evidence showed "erosion and deterioration of The World islands", he added. With all but one of the islands still uninhabited -- Greenland -- and that one a showpiece owned by the ruler of Dubai, most of the developm Nakheel, the developer, was part of Dubai World, the state-owned conglomerate that had to be bailed out of debts put at around $25 billion at the end of 2009. The Dubai World Tribunal was set up to hear cases arising out of the restructuring and separation of the companies involved. The low-lying islands represent a vague shape out to sea when viewed from Dubai's beaches, but are visible by satellite or from the top of the city's Burg Khalifa, the world's tallest building, which opened to the public last year. According to the company, 70 per cent of the World's 300 islands have been ...

  • Call It Home: Searching for Truth on Bolinas Lagoon Call it Home: Searching for Truth on Bolinas Lagoon celebrates the beauty and importance of the world famous Bolinas Lagoon, explores the issues behind a decades-long community debate to understand the forces affecting its future, and seeks to inspire people everywhere to love and respect nature. The lagoon has been silting up, getting noticeably shallower, and opinions on what to do about it range from large scale dredging to no action at all. The local community has struggled for many years to reach a consensus for action. The basic issue remains the same: what actions to take, if any, to effect change on the lagoon. The rise of national environmental consciousness in the 70's literally began in Northern California, and to some degree, with efforts to preserve Bolinas Lagoon. Call it Home: Searching for Truth on Bolinas Lagoon, is a testament to the effectiveness of patient democratic debate and concerned activism. At first glance it's a small local story, but it is also clearly a microcosm that resonates with important environmental issues that are currently debated in local communities across our nation and around the world.

  • Farakka Barrage.mp4 When completed in 1970 by India, the Farakka Barrage, around 18 kilometres upstream of Monohorpur, seemed a rather innocent venture by India at just saving the Calcutta Port from silting. The reality was felt by the Bangladeshis over the next few decades as the entire south-western region of Bangladesh was affected due to the dearth of water. The country also faced long term losses in the agricultural, fisheries, forestry, industry, navigation and other sectors. The barrage also caused some fatal damages over the years through floods, droughts, excessive salinity and depletion of groundwater. The then-Bangladesh government tried to solve the impending problem through bilateral talks immediately following the formation of the Indo-Bangladesh joint river commission (JRC) in 1972. After being assured in the 1974 summit between the two countries that the Farakka barrage would not be put into operation before an agreement was reached on sharing the dry season flow of the Ganges between the two countries, Bangladesh allowed India to test the feeder c*** of the barrage in 1975.

  • German Shepherd at Newtown creek Newtown Estuary is located on the northern coast and forms an integral part of the Solents estuarine system. It is a National Nature Reserve and supports nationally important and threatened wildlife. The estuary is a particularly significant feeding and over-wintering ground for waders and other wildfowl. The landscape of the Newtown River has changed little over the centuries and it is an area rich in features of historical interest. Newtown, also known as Francheville, was established as a Free Town by the Bishop of Winchester in 1256. The site was chosen because of its deep and sheltered harbour, saltworks and shellfish beds.The town flourished for many years until the combination of a French raid on the town in 1377 and the gradual silting up of the harbour led to a loss of trade. Newtown was soon replaced as the Islands main port by the larger ports at Yarmouth and Newport and the population gradually diminished. The estuary came under the protection of the National Trust in 1965. Local yachtsmen and naturalists raised funds for its purchase following a proposal to develop a nuclear power station at Hamstead.

  • 7 Wonders of India: Chilika Lake Chilika Lake (also called Chilka lake) is a brackish water coastal lake in India`s Orissa state, south of the mouth of the Mantei River. The area of the lake varies from 1165 km sq in the monsoon season to 906 km sq in the dry season, and is studded with numerous small islands. The lake is an important habitat and breeding ground for both resident and migratory and aquatic birds, most notably flamingoes. The lake was formed due to the silting action of the Mantei River, which drains into the northern end of the lake, and the northerly currents in the Bay of Bengal, which have formed a sandbar along the eastern shore leading to the formation of a shallow lagoon. The main attractions inside the lake are Kalijai Island, Honeymoon Island, Breakfast Island, Birds Island, Nalabana (Island of Reeds) and Parikud Island.

  • Bruges (Brugge) Trip - 2010 I visited Bruges in Belgium on my neat summer vacation. It's a great place to visit with lots to do! Enjoy! Bruges is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located in the northwest of the country. Bruges has most of its medieval architecture intact. The historic centre of Bruges has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. Many of its medieval buildings are notable. Bruges got its city charter on 27th July 1128 and new walls and c***s were built. Since about 1050, gradual silting had caused the city to lose its direct access to the sea. A storm in 1134, however, re-established this access, through the creation of a natural channel at the Zwin. The new sea arm stretched all the way to Damme, a city that became the commercial outpost for Bruges.

  • HOLLAND THE QUEEN VISISTS EDAM The city of Edam was founded around a dam crossing the river E or IJe close by the Zuiderzee now known as the IJsselmeer. Around 1230 the channel was dammed. At the dam goods had to be loaded onto other vessels and the inhabitants of Edam could levy a toll. This enabled Edam to grow as a trade town. Shipbuilding and fishing brought Edam more wealth. Count Willem V of Holland gave Edam city rights in 1357. One of the reasons he did this was because of the war between the Hoeken and the Kabeljauwen. They fought a battle for the rule over the cities of Holland. Thanks to the city rights the people of Edam could make a new harbor. Because of the harbor the city was now connected with the big cities in Holland and the international trading routes. By the 16th century there were as many as 33 wharfs in Edam making it one of the more important cities of North Holland, vying with Enkhuizen, Hoorn and Amsterdam. Edam was also granted the right to have a market three times every year. All together a big boost for the local economy. However, the open sea mouth caused flooding problems in the hinterland and in 1544 Emperor Charles V gave orders to close the harbour with lock gates, which were built in the town centre in 1569. This resulted in the harbour silting up and the ship building industry went into a decline by the end 17th century. The cheese market was the primarily boost of the economy of Edam in the 16th century. On the 16th of April in 1526 Emperor Charles V gave Edam the ...

  • Titas Ekti Nadir Naam - Bengali Movie - 1/15 Titas Ekti Nadir Naam was released on1991 Bengali film starring Prabir Mitra, Gulam Mustafa, Ritwik Ghatak, Rosy Samad, Shafikul Islam, Kaberi Choudhuri, Ritwik Ghatak, Roushan Jamil, Banani Choudhury. The Bengali film is directed by Ritwik Ghatak. Writer Adwait Mull Burman, Ritwik Ghatak scored the music in the film. The story is the tale is set among Malo fishermen living by the Titash river. Kishore's (Prabir Mitra) bride (Kaberi Choudhury) is abducted by river bandits. She escapes and is rescued by the fisher folk, with whom she lives and raises her child. Kishore becomes a madman and is offered shelter by his wife but they recognise each other only before they die. The child is raised by Basanti (Rosy Samad) while the river starts silting up and urban traders drive out the fisherfolk. The tightly cut beginning of the abduction sequence has the closed structure of a myth which the film gradually opens out into history, especially through the archetypally constructed male and female spaces. Kishore represents an unprecedented amalgamation of Christ and Shiva, usually regarded as contradictory figures, while the thrice-born female figure, associated with the motif of the nurturing river, constitutes a movement of both historical displacement and deliverance.
  • Me, performing non-silting kicks From SCUBA Boot Camp 2007 - Me performing cave-style frog kick, modified frog, modified flutter, etc. These kicks keep your wake off the bottom, which keeps the vis good. Just say "No!" to silting.
  • Rishloo - Shades From album Eidolon. Special thanks for Zsu! Lyrics: We're, if at all slaves to a pawn caught in a cautious lie, if at all, staggering weightless haggard stained cynical it all tastes sweet Leave me to sway here if at all listing ageless wait, wait and see Come here to rest and then cosset the crows who murder the raven and those who cast the losing die Leave me to sway here if at all listing ageless Wait Trace these suicide shades uncovered through this pious lullaby praise to suffer while we brace ourselves shaking hands on the alter See these paths to there end through the pulse of hate And now walking along the earth It always turns inward To let their souls writhe Silting softly it is wanting Hate Trace these suicide shades uncovered through this pious lullaby pray and suffer Erase (erase...)
  • Ganges River Waters Flow Decreases from Pollution For more news visit ☛ or Follow us on Twitter ☛ http And in India the holy River Ganges is now one of the dirtiest in the world. Decreasing water levels, excessive silt deposits and decreased flow are being blamed for the increase in pollution. It might be considered holy by Hindus, but the Ganges River in India is now one of the dirtiest rivers in the world. Due to falling water levels and excessive silting, the flow of the Ganges has slowed. This in turn has increased the pollution in the river. [BD Tripathi, Ganga Basin Authority]: "For the past two decades, we are finding that more than pollution, the Ganges is being affected by the flow of water. When the flow of water is less, then there are many major drawbacks. The first thing that happens due to low flow of water is that siltation begins. Then silt deposits rise, the river shrinks, its carrying capacity decreases, and pollutants and industrial residues increase automatically, even if we control pollution." The head of the Ganga Pollution Research Center blames poorly constructed hydropower projects and dams for the low water levels. [PK Choudhary, Ganga Pollution Research Center]: "In Varanasi, the Ganges water has become totally black in color, and in Allahabad it is brown in color. As the dilution factor and water level decrease, the river will become a mere stream." The cities of Kanpur, Varanasi, Allahabad and Mirzapur are where the river is the most polluted.
