Lakhs of fish die in Kali Bein

(“Lakh” means A hundred thousand.  Infor. –  lakh  /läk/  )

IP Singh, TNN Apr 21, 2013, 03.03AM IST

SULTANPUR LODHI: The historic Kali Bein, which had become an example of rejuvenation of a dead rivulet, is again stinking- this time with lakhs of dead fish in it as the flow of fresh water has been reduced and dirty water continues to flow into it.

Around a dozen trolley loads of dead fish had been removed from Bein by volunteers led by environmentalist Baba Balbir Singh Seechewal in the last four days and still lakhs of fish are lying dead in the water. The worst affected stretch is behind historic Gurdwara Ber Sahib and now the stink is becoming unbearable.

“Please spread the word starting now.” -Father Frank Pavone

Fox News is scheduled to air a one-hour special on the trial of Kermit Gosnell this Sunday, May 5, at 9 p.m. ET.

Said Father Frank Pavone, director of Priests for Life, “Let’s do all we can to spread the word about this so as to get as many people as possible to watch and to show our friends in the secular media that when this topic is addressed, people tune in.”

Meanwhile, President Obama’s planned appearance at an upcoming Planned Parenthood fundraiser in light of the ongoing Gosnell trial continues to draw comment.

Ton Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, was quoted as saying the Gosnell-Planned Parenthood connection is something that must be exposed.

Churches Set April 28 to Pray For Abused, Neglected Children

News Release (Apr 24, 2013)

“We’ve seen a much more active weather pattern lately across the midsection of the country, which has been eroding the intensity of drought as we head into spring. This is exactly what we needed.” -Mark Svoboda

(Washington, DC) – Prominent megachurches and hundreds of other churches around the country will observe Blue Sunday, a day of prayer for abused and neglected children, on April 28. Shepherding the Next Generation, a network of evangelical pastors and faith leaders, is working with churches to promote awareness and action for the estimated 611,000 children who were victims of abuse and neglect in 2011, and the 1,570 children who died as a result.

“Children hold a special place in the Savior’s heart (Matthew 19) so doesn’t it stand to reason we should care deeply about them also?” said nationally-known Pastor Steve Mays, of nearly-10,000-member Calvary Chapel Southbay in Los Angeles, and member of Shepherding the Next Generation.

“When God’s people are shown a need, the only appropriate response is to fill that need just as He would,” said Pastor Jay Dennis, Senior Pastor of 9,000-member-First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland, Florida, and member of Shepherding the Next Generation.

On the last Sunday in April, churches commit to pray for the victims and their rescuers. Participating congregations may also hold toy drives, host community forums, or commit to volunteer in ways that support at-risk children and families.

“Pastors have unique insights about their congregations, and a strong sense of the challenges young parents and families are facing,” said Tom Pearce, the national director of Shepherding the Next Generation. “As members of Shepherding the Next Generation, they know that preventing child abuse and neglect is essential for healthy families.”

Pearce explained that proven strategies to prevent abuse and neglect include parent coaching, and encouraging mentoring and discipleship relationships within the church.

Finally: Drought Relief

News Release (Apr 24, 2013)

“We’ve seen a much more active weather pattern lately across the midsection of the country, which has been eroding the intensity of drought as we head into spring. This is exactly what we needed.” -Mark Svoboda

The area of the contiguous United States in moderate drought or worse fell below 50 percent for the first time since June 19, 2012, according to the latest edition of the U.S. Drought Monitor released Thursday.

Heavy precipitation across the Plains and the upper Midwest continued to ease drought. The area of the lower 48 states in moderate drought or worse declined to 47.82 percent, from 50.82 percent a week ago.

“We’ve been on a steady but slow recovery path from drought since the peak in September 2012,” said Mark Svoboda, University of Nebraska-Lincoln climatologist and a founding author of the Monitor. “We’ve seen a much more active weather pattern lately across the midsection of the country, which has been eroding the intensity of drought as we head into spring. This is exactly what we needed.” (Photo: droughtmonitor.unl.edu)

Svoboda, the head of the Monitoring Program area at the National Drought Mitigation Center based at UNL, cautioned that improvement is still needed before the hot, dry season sets in.

Drought Monitor authors synthesize many drought indicators into a single map that identifies areas that are abnormally dry, in moderate drought, in severe drought, extreme drought and exceptional drought.

In the Midwest, heavy rains soaked into thawing soils and reduced drought in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri, observed this week’s narrative accompanying the Drought Monitor map. The area of the Midwest in moderate drought or worse declined to 20.94 percent from 32.24 percent the preceding week, according to statistics released with the map.

In the Plains, drought receded in eastern Oklahoma, eastern Kansas, extreme eastern Nebraska and the Nebraska Panhandle, and most of the Dakotas. An area of exceptional drought, the worst category of drought, was eliminated from South Dakota. Heavy rains also improved conditions in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. But decent precipitation eluded Texas and Arizona, which were among the few areas where drought got worse. (Photo: csmonitor.com)

The U.S. Drought Monitor map is jointly produced by the National Drought Mitigation Center at UNL, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and about 350 drought observers across the United States. The map is released each Thursday based on data through the previous Tuesday morning.

Statistics for the percent area in each category of drought are automatically added to the U.S. Drought Monitor website each week for the entire country and Puerto Rico, for the 48 contiguous states, for each climate region, and for individual states. Data is archived to January 2000.

The sarcastic fringehead (Neoclinus blanchardi) is a footlong fish that lives off the Pacific coast of North America. When unthreatened, the fringehead’s visage is fairly unremarkable. But if a marine predator (or stray human hand) attempts to dislodge a fringehead from its crevasse, the fish will race into action, brandishing its frightening Predator-like mouth at the interloper.
