Biodiversity Without Boundaries 2014

Sum­mary: More evi­dence that the Amer­i­can soviet agen­cies and the pub­lic pri­vate part­ner­ship par­tic­i­pants are seek­ing a widen­ing pur­suit in the abo­li­tion of pri­vate prop­erty and the advance of polit­i­cal Region­al­ism. The focus here is rural landown­ers. America’s resources are being gath­ered in order to cen­tral­ize power.

Join Us at Bio­di­ver­sity With­out Bound­aries 2014!

New Orleans, Louisiana is the site of NatureServe’s next Bio­di­ver­sity With­out Bound­aries (BWB) con­fer­ence, tak­ing place from April 6–10, 2014. BWB is where the Nature­Serve net­work, our part­ners, and our friends gather to cel­e­brate our suc­cesses, col­lab­o­rate on new ini­tia­tives, share our inno­va­tions, and design the future. More than ever, we’ll be empha­siz­ing edu­ca­tion, work­ing ses­sions, and net­work­ing. Join us in our dis­cus­sions about how we are pro­vid­ing, and how we can con­tinue to pro­vide, the sci­en­tific basis for effec­tive conservation.

With one of the world’s most fas­ci­nat­ing cities as the back­drop, Nature­Serve and the Louisiana Nat­ural Her­itage Pro­gram are plan­ning a full and sat­is­fy­ing con­fer­ence. Nature­Serve Method­ol­ogy Train­ing will be offered Sat­ur­day through Mon­day. Sunday’s field trips will explore south­ern Louisiana’s beau­ti­ful and diverse wild­lands – cypress-tupelo swamps, bays, marshes, man­groves, bot­tom­land hard­wood forests, che­nier wood­lands, and rem­nant prairies. Work­shops will explore how mem­ber pro­grams can stay rel­e­vant in an increas­ingly com­pet­i­tive envi­ron­ment, and how to design a pro­gram to pro­vide the basis for effec­tive con­ser­va­tion action. Other high­lights include the mem­ber pro­gram awards recep­tion, and the Nature­Serve Con­ser­va­tion Award din­ner (past win­ners include Walt Reid, William Ruck­elshaus, and E.O. Wilson).

Agenda 21 On the March in Los Angeles County

042712-no-agenda-21-smThe idea behind Agenda 21 is to force cit­i­zens to live, work and play where gov­ern­ment wants not where the peo­ple want.  Gov­ern­ment, under the Agenda 21 pro­gram is mov­ing toward giv­ing incen­tives to build apart­ments and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties near gov­ern­ment trans­porta­tion sys­tems.  On the other hand gov­ern­ment is cre­at­ing dis­in­cen­tives for those want­ing to live in sin­gle fam­ily homes and lives where they want, away from the cen­ter of a city.  And, this is being done by the crony cap­i­tal­ist of the Los Ange­les Busi­ness Coun­cil as the voice of Agenda 21, the front group for gov­ern­ment and spe­cial interests.

The utopian con­cept of “co-location” – plac­ing jobs near hous­ing has been elu­sive in Los Ange­les, says the study’s author, Dr. Paul Habibi, Pro­fes­sor of Real Estate at the UCLA Ander­son School of Man­age­ment and Ziman Cen­ter for Real Estate.  Land is so costly through­out LA, says Habibi, that he sees more hope in link­ing “hous­ing cen­ters” and “job cen­ters” through mass tran­sit, rather than try­ing to keep them close together.

“My solu­tion is really look­ing at the sup­ply side of the equa­tion and try­ing to max­i­mize the devel­opable land area where devel­op­ers can now place new work­force and afford­able hous­ing units in prox­im­ity to tran­sit cen­ters that peo­ple can uti­lize to get to work,” Habibi says.
