Dopo l'asta, il ritorno agli antichi fasti per la Reggia di Carditello (Italy)
Una delle meravigliose regge che il meridione può vantare, nelle cui sale riecheggiano ancora i fasti e la storia di epoche passate, è stata abbandonata all’incuria del tempo e alla razzia dei vandali: è la Real tenuta di Carditello, elegante dimora neoclassica progettata dall’architetto Francesco Collecini, della scuola vanvitelliana, per volere di Carlo di Borbone.
Lo splendido palazzo, con i suoi ettari di tenuta, si erge nella pianura tra Napoli e Caserta, in luoghi un tempo ameni per la natura rigogliosa e genuina, dove trovava fertile terreno la pianta del cardo, da cui il nome della reggia.
Di acqua nel vicino fiume Volturno ne è però passata da quando la Reggia di Carditello ospitava Ferdinando IV, che vi avviò un’organizzata azienda agricola, per poi divenire nell’Italia unita proprietà della famiglia reale dei Savoia…

Imu (Imposta municipale unica) per molti ma non per tutti
Tempi duri per i contribuenti italiani. Al fine di risanare debito pubblico e casse vuote degli enti locali il governo tecnico ha ripristinato la tassazione sulla fonte di investimento preferita dagli italiani: il mattone. L’IMU, imposta municipale unica, perno fondamentale dell’ultima manovra finanziaria, sostituirà sia la vecchia Ici che l’Irpef sui redditi fondiari e graverà su tutti i beni immobili, sia prime che seconde abitazioni. E così in attesa della stangata annunciata per l’estate, hanno iniziato a fare i conti anche i proprietari delle ville e dei castelli patrizi disseminati per tutta la penisola. E il risultato dei conteggi non è stato molto gradito: qualora l’imposta venisse calcolata e applicata con le disposizioni attuali, l’aumento delle tariffe per i proprietari di questi fabbricati sarebbe del 600%. Le polemiche da parte dell’Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane, che riunisce tutti i possessori di ville e palazzi nobiliari, non si sono fatte attendere e per bocca del presidente dell’associazione, Moroello Diaz della Vittoria Pallavicini, hanno espresso la loro posizione molto chiaramente: richiedere una revisione delle misure da applicare e il rinnovo dei trattamenti differenziati di cui i possessori dei palazzi patrizi hanno beneficiato sino ad oggi.

World Bank GEF (Global Environment Facility) Grant to Reduce Marine Pollution in the Huai River Basin - China
Today the World Bank Board of Executive Directors approved a grant of US$5 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to the People’s Republic of China to help improve water environment and reduce pollution in the Bohai Sea through a pilot project in the Huai River Basin.
The Huai River Basin, which covers Shandong, Jiangsu, Anhui and Henan provinces, is faced with the challenge to maintain the balance between socio-economic development and environmental protection. With rapid economic growth in the region, many river systems in the Huai River Basin have become increasingly polluted, rendering it one of the most polluted rivers in China. Consequently more and more nutrients and pollutants are discharged into the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea, contaminating these international waters.

Un gène de sapin pour remplacer l'ambre gris de cachalots dans les parfums ?
Selon des travaux menés par des chercheurs canadiens, un gène extrait du génome de sapin baumier et introduit dans des levures pourrait permettre de remplacer l'ambre gris, tiré des cachalots et utilisé en parfumerie.
Cela fait des siècles aujourd'hui que l'ambre gris est commercialisé en Europe et utilisé dans la fabrication des parfums. Mais sous cette appellation quelque peu "poétique" se cache en fait une substance qui l'est moins. En effet, l'ambre gris est une concrétion intestinale de cachalot. Autrement dit, elle provient d'une réaction entre les sécrétions biliaires du cétacés et les aliments qu'il a ingéré. Autrefois, on la récoltait sur les plages ou flottant sur les vagues. Dans le classique "Moby Dick", Herman Melville décrit ainsi déjà la récolte de ce produit légendaire sur les côtes des océans.

Treizièmes Rencontres du Réseau des Grands Sites de France (RGSF) - Place et organisation des activités commerciales sur les Grands Sites (Iles Sanguinaires, Pointe de la Parata, Ajaccio, Corse, France, Octobre 2011)
Les activités commerciales présentes sur les Grands Sites sont nombreuses et de nature très diverse. Du fait de la forte attractivité des sites, ces activités sont pour l'essentiel à caractère touristique : services aux visiteurs, hébergement, restauration, vente de souvenirs, activités de découverte, visites guidées, manifestations culturelles ou de nature, etc.
Ces activités répondent à des besoins, participent de la vie des Grands Sites, et génèrent une économie locale pour les territoires. Mais elles peuvent aussi entrer en contradiction avec les valeurs portées par les Grands Sites : conflits avec les exigences de la préservation paysagère et patrimoniale, avec le niveau de qualité d'accueil, avec les valeurs du développement durable.

Ted Turner Gives $1 Million for Congo Gorilla Conservation
Philanthropist and environmentalist Ted Turner has contributed $1 million to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, to support an ambitious new initiative aimed at saving endangered gorillas in eastern Congo.
In making his announcement, Turner praised the work the organization does in Africa through the Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda, founded by Dian Fossey in 1967. The Fossey Fund’s work in Rwanda has led to the mountain gorilla being the only ape species whose numbers are increasing. However, the related subspecies of Grauer’s gorillas, found in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, have received little protection and their numbers are plummeting.

Cost to pack California state park artifacts will cut savings - California - USA
Shuttering dozens of California state parks to trim millions from the state budget will take more than simply hanging a "Closed" sign on trailheads and beach parking lots. Many on the closure list house thousands of historical treasures that must be packed up, catalogued and stored if deals are not reached to save them. The tens of thousands of items on public display paint a rich portrait of California's past. Among them are rare crystalline gold nuggets at the California Mining and Minerals Museum in Mariposa, painting masterworks showing early 20th century San Francisco street scenes and coastal landscapes at Shasta State Historical Park, and the writer Jack London's home and writing memorabilia in Sonoma County.

The New York Public Library Digitizes Early American History - New York State - USA
Thousands of historical documents at The New York Public Library – including material handwritten by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and papers from authors such as Mark Twain – will soon be accessible to the public online, thanks in large part due to a generous gift of $500,000 from The Polonsky Foundation.
The project, which began in January and will continue through 2014, will digitize documents from the Thomas Addis Emmet Collection, located within the Manuscripts and Archives Division, and almost all the papers of several major American authors in the Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature at The New York Public Library.
