Syria: Climate Change, Drought and Social Unrest
Water shortages, crop-failure and displacement
From 2006-2011, up to 60% of Syria’s land experienced, in the terms of one expert,   “the worst long-term drought and most severe set of crop failures  since  agricultural civilizations began in the Fertile Crescent many  millennia  ago.” According to a special case study from last year’s Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR),of   the most vulnerable Syrians dependent on agriculture, particularly in   the northeast governorate of Hassakeh (but also in the south), “nearly   75 percent … suffered total crop failure.” Herders in the northeast lost around 85% of their livestock, affecting 1.3 million people.

Old wooden Scrabble tile racks make great display shelves. Present & Correct suggests simply gluing the racks onto walls. To hold items that are heavier than game tiles or lightweight books, racks may need to be attached with something other than glue. (via Poppytalk)

Not all emperor penguins sport black-and-white tuxedoes. Scripps reseacher Gerald Kooyman spotted this unique all-white emperor chick, dubbed Snowflake, during a penguin survey on the ice shelf of the Ross Sea, Antarctica, in December 1997.
Its white feathers blended in so well with the icy background that Kooyman said he almost missed the chick – emperor penguin chicks are usually covered in a grayish down coat, with dark tail feathers and dark bills and feet.
Scientists don’t think Snowflake is an albino, however, as it didn’t have the characteristic pink eyes associated with albinism.
