Finding the Perfect Campsite

first_imgA campsite can make or break an overnight outing. There is nothing worse than planning a camping adventure and arriving at an overcrowded or disappointing campsite that doesn’t live up to expectations. And there is nothing better than finding a sweet, secluded camping spot beneath the stars. Here are a few ways to make sure you find the perfect campsite.1. A good starting point is to figure out what your shelter will be and what your preferences are. The main ways to camp are: pitching a tent, staying in an established shelter (if along the Appalachian Trail or similar footpath), car/vehicle camping, or renting a cabin within a campground.2. Once that is established, there is the choice of primitive or commercial camping. Commercial camping includes established campgrounds with amenities such as working plumbing and (cold) showers. Primitive camping is just you and nature, which also means it’s B.Y.O. toilet paper.3. There are benefits to both styles of camping. For those who are beginners or are looking for the outdoor experience without straying too far from civilization, commercial camping might be the way to go. Nicer campgrounds usually charge a nightly fee for campers because of the amenities they provide. These fees can vary from as high as $128 per night in an RV at the Cherokee K.O.A.4. Campground in N.C. to a flat rate price of $20 a night for either a tent or an RV at Mount Pisgah Campground. Staying at a cozy, lakefront cabin at Smith Mountain Lake State Park in Virginia has a price tag of $112 per night while just $12 will buy you a night at Horse Cove Campground just walking distance from Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. Depending on the occasion and your budget, you may opt to splurge on a cabin with a beautiful view or there is always the option to opt for a campsite under $20.5. Primitive camping generally means little-to-no fees to pay, but there is much more that has to go into the planning process. Expect no electrical or water hookups, no bathroom facility, and often no cell service. You can pack your car full of everything you own, but if a hike is necessary to get to your overnight spot, you may want to narrow things down to what you can carry on your back. This is when having a group along with you is a great advantage since you could share the weight of all the gear you will need.Now comes the hard part: the search for the right campsite.Unfortunately there is no one website that will provide you with comparisons of every campground and campsite within the Blue Ridge, but there are several sites that can help you find what you are looking for based on location, the experience you’re after, the price range that suits you, and even the amenities you’d like.Recreation.gov is one of the most prevalent online platforms to discover where to go on your camping ventures. The National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, and 10 other partners have come together to provide information and the ability to make reservations at over 2,000 federal areas. Among the website you are able to narrow down your search by browsing locations and applying filters such as accessibility, pet friendly, and specific amenities such as showers.The Blue Ridge Parkway also hosts eight different campgrounds which are open from May to October, and their site provides information on group camping and permits necessary to go camping in the backcountry.State by state, you can search state parks for a site such as all primitive campsites within Georgia’s State Parks.Social media can be a powerful tool in connecting with other campers and exchanging information as well. From outdoor groups to experienced friends, a simple recommendation or post can go a long way in getting started in the right direction.The best way to have the camping trip you’re hoping for is to put work into the planning process so all that’s left to do is get outdoors and relax. The Blue Ridge mountains have no shortage of camping destinations, so pack some gear and find yours!last_img read more

UK defends removing Spain from travel corridor as virus surges

first_imgBut Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the government was required to take “swift” action.”The data we got was on the Friday, it showed a big jump right across mainland Spain. That was then assessed yesterday afternoon and we took the decision as swiftly as we could,” Raab told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge On Sunday program.”We can’t make apologies for doing so,” he added.”I understand it is disruptive for those going through this …but we must though be able to take swift, decisive action.” The British government on Sunday defended its decision to impose an immediate requirement for passengers arriving from Spain to self-isolate amid a resurgence of coronavirus in the popular holiday destination.The new rules took hold at midnight Saturday, hours after being announced, causing uncertainty for holidaymakers and leading to criticism from travel industry leaders.”I think it’s quite poor that they did it so instantaneously,” Philip Bradby, 55, told the domestic Press Association after returning early to Britain from Barcelona. Passengers arriving in Britain will have to self-isolate for two weeks following the surge in cases.”The Joint Biosecurity Centre together with Public Health England have updated their coronavirus assessments of Spain based on the latest data,” said a British government spokesman.”As a result, Spain has been removed from the lists of countries from which passengers arriving in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are exempted from the need to self-isolate.”Britain is advising against all but essential travel to mainland Spain, but that does not apply to the Canary Islands or the Balearic Islands. Barely a month after Spain ended its months-long state of emergency, new infections have been rising.Transport minister Grant Shapps was caught in the ruling as he is currently in Spain for his summer break.Labor called the decision “frankly shambolic”, with shadow health minister Jonathan Ashworth saying holidaymakers had been left “confused and distressed”.Tui, Britain’s biggest tour operator, said the government should have given them “more notice of this announcement”.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Judge overturns Garda Chief Superintendent’s decision to refuse man a taxi-license

first_imgA Judge has overturned a decision by a Garda Chief Superintendent not to grant a taxi license to a Co Donegal man.Tony Pyper appeared at Falcarragh District Court today appealing a decision by Chief Supt Terry McGinn to refuse him a small PSV license to drive a taxi. The father-of-two was found guilty in January of having no car insurance, after he had originally applied for his taxi license.He was contacted by Gardai to explain that his application for the taxi license was being refused.Chief Supt McGinn met with Mr Pyper on May 24th last and explained to him that her hands were tied on the matter but advised him to get legal advice.She told the court that because Mr Pyper was applying for a license to drive people in a taxi and that he had a conviction for not having insurance she had to refuse his application.She added that she couldn’t give you a license but if the Judge saw fit to grant the license then that is a matter for the court.Solicitor Frank Dorrian told the court that his client already holds a heavy PSV license and this entitled him to drive lorries and coaches which could carry 50 people but was refused a small taxi license.“Where is the logic in that,” asked Mr Dorrian.He said the original insurance breach happened when Mr Piper, of McNeely Villas, Oldtown, Letterkenny, took his mother’s car thinking he was insured on it and that he had no other convictions.Having heard all the applications, Judge Paul Kelly said he was going to allow Mr Piper’s appeal and grant him a license.He said while it seemed to him that the Chief Superintendent was within her rights to refuse the taxi license, it did appear to be disproportionate to the conviction.He added that the court has already felt it appropriate that Mr Piper kept his driving license and that he will no doubt have difficulty getting insurance because of his previous conviction for not having insurance.Judge overturns Garda Chief Superintendent’s decision to refuse man a taxi-license was last modified: July 22nd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegallicenserefusaltaxiTerry McGinnTony Pyperlast_img read more

Marine Mimics Found Off Thailand

first_imgLive Science reported findings from a rich seascape off the coast of Thailand: “Scientists combing through undersea fauna off Indonesia’s Papua province said Monday they had discovered dozens of new species, including a shark that walks on its fins and a shrimp that looks like a praying mantis.”    National Geographic posted even more information about this find, including pictures and video.  Apparently the shark can swim with its fins, but has a habit of “walking” along the reef surface.  “Biologists studying these sharks suggest they could serve as models for the first animals that moved from marine environments onto land,” the article says.Think of the wonderful new possibilities this opens up for evolutionary storytelling.  The shark is obviously practicing for its eventual debut on land.  And shiver me timbers, shrimp must have retained developmental genes shared by praying mantises, leading to a most remarkable case of convergent evolution.    The focus of the article was on the sad state of conservation of this area, and how local fisherman are using methods that threaten these unique species.  This time the liberals can’t blame the Christian right.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Arctic Tern Maintains World Record Title

first_imgThe arctic tern makes a marathoner look like a wimp.  This little bird has been confirmed as the migratory bird with the longest route, flying annually from pole to pole.  A team of international scientists obtained the results by using an implanted geolocator on several birds, and tracking their actual path.  The story is told by PhysOrg and the BBC News.    “Albatrosses, godwits, and sooty shearwaters all undertake epic journeys,” the BBC said, “But none can quite match the Arctic tern’s colossal trip.”  They found that half the birds flew along South America on the way down, and others followed the coast of Africa, but all returned northward the same way.    The team was surprised to find the birds following an S-curve home when flying north.  National Geographic reported that this makes their migration twice as long as previously thought.  The scientists figured that the S-curve allows the birds to conserve energy when flying over the trackless Atlantic Ocean by riding the prevailing winds.  The curvy route, even though thousands of miles longer, is actually more energy efficient.    The round trip is about 70,000 kilometers (43,000 miles).  An average arctic tern, weighing only 3.5 ounces, will fly “the equivalent of three trips to the moon and back over its lifetime.” Aren’t you glad there are still some scientists left who stick to empirical observations? (compare next entry).  This is amazing.  The team is to be congratulating for miniaturizing the electronics to the point of making this kind of difficult observation possible.  And just think: they didn’t even have to make up any evolutionary story to go with it.  The only mention of evolution was Revolution: the devices are “revolutionising our understanding of migration patterns,” the articles said.    Speaking of miniaturization, think of all the systems that God had to pack into 3.5 ounces.  Navigation systems.  Fuel systems.  Remote sensing systems.  Power systems.  Stabilization systems.  And much more: all these have to be integrated and synchronized, so that the birds arrive at their feeding grounds on time.  Oh, and then there is the system that allows them to reproduce themselves in little round packages that hatch and know exactly how to do what their parents do.  Sometimes God does overkill challenging the futile speculations of denialists (see next entry).(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

South Africa’s children learn to be green

first_imgSouth Africa’s future generations will grow up with a deeper understanding and respect for the environment, thanks to Eco-Schools. (Image: Green Renaissance) MEDIA CONTACTS • Bridget Ringdahl  Eco-Schools programme manager  +27 33 330 3931 or +27 72 741 8223 RELATED ARTICLES • Milk brand cares for cows • SA business urged to adopt schools • Green buildings now the law in SA • Birds get right of way at airport • SA firms turn to green pest controlEmily van RijswijckGrade seven pupils at Seripe Primary School in Mopani, Limpopo province, look with new eyes at the prolific birdlife in their area.After participating in National Birdlife Week as part of their Eco-Schools theme project in 2011, these children now have a basic understanding of how to identify birds and have learnt the value of trees in attracting birds to an area.The school joined the Eco-Schools programme, run by the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa (Wessa) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-SA), five years ago.It earned its Eco-Schools flag in 2011, an international award given to qualifying schools as a symbol of excellence after successfully maintaining environmental themes for five years.The school is one of 1 200 registered in South Africa with the programme, which is run under the auspices of Wessa.Eco-Schools is an award-winning international programme started 15 years ago by the Foundation for Environmental Education, an NGO promoting sustainable development through environmental education.South Africa joins 51 other countries from around the world in providing school children with this innovative environmental learning programme which slots in perfectly with the normal school curriculum.Elsewhere in Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Morocco and Tunisia have also joined the programme.First introduced in South Africa in 2003 with a membership of 100 schools, Eco-Schools exposed about 500 000 pupils to environmental learning, some for the very first time, during 2011, and is set to keep growing.Twenty-five of the original schools remain with the programme today while half of the schools which have joined up in the last three years are still participating.Boosting schools’ eco-awarenessAccording to WWF-SA, shopping centre investor Pareto Limited and Nedbank’s Green Trust became the national funders in June 2010, after packaging company Tetra Pak had funded Eco-Schools since its inception.The Petroleum, Oil and Gas Corporation of South Africa recently pledged R4.5-million in additional funding, over a three-year period.“We understand the need to preserve our environment for future generations,” said the company’s head of corporate affairs, Kaizer Nyatsumba. “The beauty of the programme lies in the fact that it exposes young people to the importance of responsible environmental custodianship.”Linked to school curriculumThe success and uniqueness of the programme is linked to its alignment to the school curriculum, says Bridget Ringdahl, Eco-Schools programme manager.Eco-Schools supports the national curriculum statements for grades R to nine and grades 10 to 12.“The key is that it provides a framework to enable teachers to highlight aspects of environmental learning that can be found in many of the subjects, giving more meaning to classroom learning.”In addition, many schools align their programmes to national and international awareness campaigns such as National Water Week, World Wetlands Day, Arbor Week and others.To qualify for an award, participating schools have to select a theme and successfully maintain it throughout the year. To qualify for a flag, schools have to maintain the programme for five years.Wessa requires schools to supply a portfolio of the work done showing meaningful links with the curriculum, and relevant action taken. With each year, schools add a new theme, while still maintaining the original theme until they receive the ultimate form of recognition, the international eco-schools flag.In 2011, 64 South African schools received this sought-after accolade.Available themes include resource use; nature and biodiversity; local and global Issues and healthy living, among others.The main theme for 2012 is Sustainable energy for all and is open to schools with international status.The programme is voluntary and any school may join: pre-primary, primary and secondary, as well as schools for children with special needs, home schools and environmental clubs.Birdwatching and water auditsOver the years some innovative eco-projects have seen the light at schools in South Africa, such as a full audit on water usage and wastage at St Nicholas School in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, conducted entirely by pupils.The Dikolobe Primary School in Limpopo received international recognition in 2011 when a German film crew recorded their projects involving vermiculture, permaculture, solar cooking and removal of alien plants. These were also showed off at the recently concluded COP17, in Durban.Where funding is available, Wessa assists schools in less affluent areas to get the programme off the ground. Often, these schools benefit the most from Eco-Schools participation.The experience of pupils at Seripe Primary highlights this point. Pupils in this area are not usually encouraged to walk, hike or explore their local eco-systems, and consequently receive little external stimulation as part of their formal education. Yet, with the bird watching theme, they learned how easy it can be to be aware of environmental issues right on their doorstep.And although birding can be a solitary activity requiring great patience and concentration, the pupils surprised teachers and Wessa coordinators with their growing enthusiasm.Wessa received this feedback from coordinator Shelley Milstein: “It was astounding to see how much they enjoyed going out into nature, and how their eyes were opened to the diversity of birds.”Pupils got more excited with each day, and started to focus not only on the birds, but also on the trees and small animals around them. Besides identifying birds, the school also embarked on gardening, managed to reduce water and electricity consumption, and learned about indigenous trees as part of its Eco-Schools theme for 2011.Important scientific contributionsSome schools, such as Limpopo’s Motholo Lower Primary, are also making important scientific contributions on national level.Pupils at this small rural primary school are currently involved in the South African Observational Environmental Network (SAOEN) programme, a scientific observation project that monitors the long-term influence of climate change on natural systems.As part of the project, pupils have to observe a variety of plants over a period of time, recording the influence of weather and temperature changes on the leafy subjects. Their findings are sent to SAOEN, giving them their first experience of real scientific research.They have been in the Eco-School programme for seven years and studied forest biomes in 2011 as one of their eco-themes.Likewise, Bosko Christian School, near Hermanus in the Western Cape, studied a nearby estuary during National Wetlands Awareness week and noted a decline in the number of frogs after the busy festive season.The school reported back to Wessa that pupils came away with a greater awareness of the frog’s important role as an indicator species in wetlands, and the visible impact humans have on wetlands.The children were also made aware of the Volunteer Western Leopard Toad Project, a unique initiative that ensures the safe passage of the western leopard toad on roads in Cape Town and the surrounding plains during spawning season. The leopard toad is endangered and is a protected species.last_img read more

Can we use wearables to predict your future?

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#featured#IoT#technology#top#USC#wearables Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Follow the Puckcenter_img Amanda Razani Imagine having a wearable that is capable of warning you when you are about to start a fight and can provide you with alternate behavioral solutions.  The study of biometric data in prediction models for human behavior is an interesting peek inside what the future of wearables may be like.See Also: Check out Michael Kors’ fitness and fashion wearable mashupOne topic of interest for these wearables is that of marriage.  Being able to incorporate machine learning technology into a wearable can help warn individuals of increasing emotional responses using physiological data, and can consequently offer a form of intervention by either party. For example, as your temper rises due to your spouse leaving towels on the floor, your device vibrates in direct response to your heart rate increasing and sends a message to take a deep breath. This assistance can potentially stop an argument from occurring and remove the pressure of conflict resolution.This technological revolution can play a big role in the fitness and health industry, where microprocessors record several physiological parameters, including body temperature, heart activity, and amount of sweat. People thrive off of available information, readily reading the data in an effort to improve, compare and share through the many platforms available.Researchers at the University of Southern California have made astonishing progress in applying this technology to human behaviors. A recent study has used a non-controlled testing arena where test subjects tracked hourly emotional reactions, along with the biometric data gathered, which was then assessed by innovative machine learning technology. To more accurately study real-life scenarios, researchers avoided presenting the subjects with problem-inducing situations, instead opting to let conflicts occur naturally.This information was studied along with audio recordings to detect content and speech intensity. The results showed an 86 percent accuracy in determining conflict.These promising test results encouraged the extension of the study to include the application of algorithms that could possibly predict conflict based on biometric and speech input. The overall goal is to determine a possible conflict five minutes before it actually happens, based on biological data.How do we control emotions?This ground-breaking technology has far-reaching and interesting implications. However, this technology also raises several moral questions, such as whether or not this technology takes the “human element” out of life. Is conflict perhaps a necessary part of life?  Dr. Larry Nadig, a Clinical Psychologist says that conflict is a critical part of a relationship, and without it, relationships cannot develop. He further explains that, “Conflicts can be productive, creating deeper understanding, closeness, and respect.” Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center in California, presents a different opinion.“By making users aware of unhealthy patterns and then helping them convert that information into action, the devices have the potential to positively impact mood, stress levels, and behavior,” says Rutledge.Despite differing opinions about this new technology, these developments in wearables gadgetry are certainly spectacular, and they are moving the world into an entirely new technological direction at a rapid pace.

Googlebred Waymo aims to shift robotic cars into next gear

first_imgATWATER, Calif. – Google’s self-driving car spin-off is accelerating efforts to convince the public that its technology is almost ready to safely transport people without any human assistance at all.Waymo, hatched from a Google project started eight years ago, showed off its progress Monday during a rare peek at a closely guarded testing facility located 120 miles (193 kilometres) southeast of San Francisco. That’s where its robots complete their equivalent of driver’s education.The tour included giving more than three dozen reporters rides in Chrysler Pacifica minivans travelling through faux neighbourhoods and expressways that Waymo has built on a former Air Force base located in the Californian Central Valley city of Atwater.The minivans smoothly cruised the roads — driver’s seat empty and passengers in the back — at speeds of up to 35 mph (56 kph). By contrast, the Waymo-powered minivans that have been driving volunteer riders in the Phoenix area still use safety drivers to take over control if something goes wrong.But Waymo’s real goal is to get to the point where people in cars are nothing but passengers.Waymo CEO John Krafcik told reporters that the company will be making some cars and freight trucks totally driverless fairly soon, though he didn’t provide a specific timetable. “We are really close,” he said. “We are going to do it when we feel like we are ready.”Since Google began working on self-driving cars in 2009, dozens of established automakers such as General Motors and Ford Motors have entered the race, along with other big technology companies, including Apple and ride-hailing service Uber. The competition is so fierce and the stakes so high that Waymo is currently suing Uber , alleging that one of its former managers stole its trade secrets and took them with him when he joined Uber in 2016 as part of an elaborate scheme. The trial in that high-profile case is scheduled to begin in early December.Waymo is hoping to infuse its technology into ride-hailing services such as its current partner, Lyft, and big-rig trucking companies. It also intends to license its automated system to automakers such as Fiat Chrysler Automobile, which is already using it in 100 Pacifica minivans.last_img read more
