Sometimes a Great Notion (1971). A family of fiercely independent Oregon loggers struggle to keep the family business alive amidst changing times.

There’s something pretty languid and unshowy about this movie, which gives it an air of authenticity and a sort of yarn like quality which is alternately cathartic and frustrating. It’s the anchoring of strong, subtle performances that really make the film though, and you feel for these characters as the slowly peel back their layers to reveal a complex, moving history. 7/10.

“DES PERTES DE PLUS DE $2,000,000,” Le Devoir. August 1, 1917. Page 06.
Québec, 1er août. - On estime que 800,000 billots provenant des estacades de la riviè­re Chaudière, qui ont été rompues par l’inondation, sont actuellement à la dérive sur le fleuve. Toute la nuit et encore ce matin, des centaines de personnes ont ramassé le bois què les compagnies rachètent à 20 sous par billot. Le fleuve a été couvert de nombreuses embarcations empioyées à ce travail. Le bois encombre le fleuve entre Qué­bec et Lévis et paralyse la navigation. Ce matin, ia traversée entre les deux rives a été interrompue pendant quelque temps et plusieurs navires qui remontaient le fleuve ont dû jeter l’ancre et laisser passer le bois, de crainte de causer des dommages à leur hélice, il est probable que cette inondation va donner lieu à de grosses poursuites entre les compagnies de bois qui subissent des pertes considérables.

On prête à la compagnie Breakey l’intention d’intenter une poursuite à une autre compagnie qu’elle tient responsable de tout le désastre. A compris ia perte du bois, on estime ici les pertes causées par l’inondation dans la Beauce à près de $2,000,000. I'inondation est attribuée généralement aux pluies torrentielles et au déboisement de cette région, mais on croit qu'elles est aussi le résultat de l'accumulation de quantités considérables de bois dans ia rivière par les compagnies de bois. Lors de la dernière inondation, une compagnie avait été tenue responsable par le jury du coroner qui fil enquête sur la mort de deux victimes. Il est probable que des mesures vont être prises par les autorités provinciales pour limiter à l'avenir le flottage uu bois sur cette rivière.

D'après les renseignements que l’on peut avoir aujourd’hui de SteMarie, la situation s'est beaucoup améliorée. L’eau a diminitué et on espère que dans le cours de la journée la rivière aura repris son cours normal.

Québec, 1. — Les quelques nouveaux détails obtenus aujourd'hui au sujet des inondations de lu Beauce confirment les rapports d'hier. De plus, un autre pont de chemin de fer, le pont du Québec Central à Scotîs, Beauce, a été emporté.

“Wangari Maathai would have been 80 years old today. She was the first African woman to win the Nobel Prize, and the first Eastern African woman to receive a PhD. She died in 2011, but her legacy is very much alive – thanks, in part, to your Ecosia searches.

Wangari Maathai won the Nobel Peace Prize for her political activism, and for founding the Green Belt Movement, Ecosia’s reforestation partner in Kenya. Your searches are planting trees according to Prof. Maathai’s method. They are mostly planted around critical water sources, preventing erosion, and increasing both the quantity and the quality of the water.

For Wangari Maathai, however, planting trees was never just about restoring the water cycle. It was also about helping people – including the most marginalized – stand up for their human and environmental rights. Share this video to celebrate Wangari Maathai’s 80th birthday!”

Planting a tree may seem like an easy thing to do. But we have learned in our ten years as a tree-planting search engine that many things can go wrong in the process of reforestation.

That’s why we don’t take tree pledges lightly, which promise to plant billions, sometimes trillions of trees without specifying where, how or even to what ecological end.

You need to be able to answer all of those questions to make sure that your trees will have a positive impact on nature and people, and indeed that they’ll survive in the first place.

Watch Ecosia’s guide on how to plant a tree and share these instructions with your nature-loving friends.

Orangutan 🦧 Rescue - Mom and Baby By International Animal Rescue.
This is a #repost from @educate101 via @PhotoAroundApp
Please read this post and watch this video.. #educateyourself101 #Repost @international_animal_rescue ・・・
Mama Nam and her baby were close to starving to death when our rescue team reached them. The mother and baby orangutan had been left stranded with no food or shelter as a result of forest fires, they wouldn’t have survived another week if our team had not rescued them.

This mother orangutan was painfully skinny, her rib cage and bones were showing and she was incredibly weak, unable even to produce the milk needed to feed her baby. Both were rushed to our centre for urgent treatment.

Our team worked around the clock to provide Mama Nam and her baby the care they urgently needed to recover. Thankfully, after two months in our care, both mum and baby were pronounced fit to be released back into the wild, where they belong.

Although heartbreaking, this story is all too familiar. As more and more rainforest is destroyed, orangutans are left with nowhere to go.

Please help us restore and protect precious orangutan habitat by taking part in The Rainforest Run.

Every £5/$6 you raise in sponsorship will cover the costs of planting and protecting one tree in an area of destroyed rainforest.

Run 5k wherever you are in the world on Sunday 29th September and help build a better future for orangutans like Mama Nam. Thank you.

Happy 26th of #EnvironMarch!

Because people care about arguing about the environment until they don’t, right?

One of the great evils of the world is the lazy attitude that the next person will do whatever needs to be done, so why bother doing anything themselves.

We’re posting every day this month on the theme of “EnvironMarch”; i.e. how animal agribusiness effects the environment. See the site for more vegan-related fallacies and their responses.

“Half of the Amazon rainforest to the east is gone. It’s losing the battle, going in the direction of a savanna.”⁠

One of Brazil’s leading experts has voiced his despair about the level of deforestation taking place in what is the world’s biggest rainforest.⁠

“Just when I thought the destruction couldn’t get any worse, it has,” “In terms of the Earth’s climate, we have gone beyond the point of no return. There’s no doubt about this.” said Antonio Donato Nobre.⁠

He has studied the Amazon—its unique flora and fauna, and its influence on both the local and global climate—for more than 40 years. From 2005 to 2012, Brazil managed to reduce up to 83% of deforestation.Then the law on land use was relaxed, and deforestation increased dramatically—by as much as 200% between 2017 and 2018.⁠

For indigenous tribes, life has become more dangerous. “They are being murdered, their land is being invaded,” Nobre says.⁠

This can’t continue. It’s predicted that the Amazon rainforest, previously one of the world’s largest terrestrial carbon sinks, may stop removing carbon dioxide altogether by 2035. One of the main reasons that we see so much destruction in the Amazon is due to animal agriculture, and the growing of crops to feed cows raised for consumption.⁠

It’s time to end this industry, our planet depends on it.⁠

Go vegan to reforest the earth.⁠

When you realise the Earth is so much more than simply your environment, you’ll be moved to protect her in the same way as you would yourself. This is the kind of awareness, the kind of awakening that we need, and the future of the planet depends on whether we’re able to cultivate this insight or not. The Earth and all species on Earth are in real danger.
