No Trophy Hunting in Botswana and Zambia

Botswana and Zambia, two premier wildlife destinations, recently banned all trophy hunting within a few months of each other. This move heralds a major shift in thinking about how Africa wildlife resources will be managed in the future. Why did they do this? In short: Corruption fueling unsustainable hunting and poaching that threatens species survival. Photographic safari operators, likeWilderness Safaris, have been taking over the premier safari destinations from hunting operations for decades. What is the future of sport hunting in Mozambique and Zimbabwe where the same problems exist?

Africa is home to the largest remaining migrations on earth, the last prides of lion, the gorillas and chimpanzees, and most of the remaining elephant and rhinoceros. All kept safe on the most valuable wildlife properties on the planet.

Are we adequately protecting priceless wildlife resources? Right now, tourists from around the world coming to Africa van cleef necklace diamond imitation to photograph the continent wildlife are the biggest conservationists by far. The operators and establishment owners that attract these tourists by selling the dream of an African photographic safari are the new ambassadors for conservation.

bums in beds is funding millions of square miles of protected areas throughout Africa. Ecotourism adds value to wilderness by creating jobs and teaching people to be proud of their wildlife. We need to do everything possible to make all major safari destinations in Africa accessible and marketable. Travelers must feel safe when they come to Africa. As South Africans we must be proud to have the largest rhino population in the world. Rwanda must be proud of the mountain gorilla. Tanzania proud of the largest lion population anywhere.

Africans are beginning to realize that our wilderness areas are not endless and that what we have left, the Serengeti, Okavango, Congo, Luangwa, Massai Mara, Kruger, Namib are, in fact, global treasures to be proud of. Africa needs things to be proud of in these troubled times.

By the end of 2012, the alarm bells for wildlife war had been ringing for years.

Almost 700 rhino slaughtered in South Africa and Zimbabwe in a year. An estimated 25,000 elephant killed the year before all over Africa. The bushmeat and illegal wildlife trade has boomed in recent years on the continent.

Botswana protected areas raided by poachers on horseback for several years.

Over 20% of the global population of African grey parrots are being harvested from the wild every year. Millions of green pigeons are being smoked as bushmeat in the Congo. Illegal bushmeat is being smuggled by truck out of Tanzania. Rebel armies in central and West Africa feed themselves from the forests and grasslands.

Is it justifiable in this day and age to hunt one of the last big tusker elephants for $100,000? Is it ethical to shoot crocodiles that are over 100 years old and elephants that are nearing 70?

Is it possible to conserve large tracts of land in Africa without hunting adding value to wildlife?Do we need to draw a line between sourcing organic meat for your family and shooting a prize wild animal for a trophy? Most especially do we need to hunt in unfenced wilderness areas where animals roam free or could we restrict hunting to areas managed specifically for this purpose? Prize wildlife is traded at lucrative markets, resulting in increasing trophy sizes on most game farms in South Africa.

Mountain bike traps on Vancouver's North Shore highlight tension on the trails

Fromme, North Shore hikers and bikers are reflecting on the tensions on the trails.Tineke Kraal facing 3 charges for allegedly setting mountain bike trapsMountain bike traps trigger arrest of North Vancouver womanANALYSIS Mountain bike vs hiker: The other war in the woodsKraal was allegedly caught on camera intentionally laying logs, branches and rocks along the Quarry and Lower Skull trails in January. Such incidents have Mark Wood of van cleef jewelry replica the North Shore Mountain Biking Association shaking his head."It's generally harmonious," Wood told The Early Edition. "We understand we're not the only users in the forest. We pull over, we stop, we say hello."Wood says the atmosphere around the North Shore trails, which are largely shared by hikers and mountain bikers, has changed over the years.What was once a fringe sport is now a mainstream pastime. Trails that were once considered illegal are now actively maintained by the NSMBA, with cooperation from Clover flower van cleef necklace replica the District of North Vancouver.Wood acknowledges there are potential problems when it comes to sharing the trails, such as people hiking up a steep mountain bike descent."I think some clear wording on signage that allows people to understand the risks with that, would go a long way to reducing some of the tensions we're seeing," said Wood.'Multi use trails are dangerous'North Vancouver resident Monica Craver holds the District of North Vancouver responsible for what she sees as "the mismanagement of this sport on our mountains."She says mixing mountain bikers with other trail users doesn't work."I believe mountain biking needs to be contained to an area that can be managed by the District.

Nikki Haley Cheating Rumors Follow Her as VP Talk Begins

Nikki Haley has been the talk of the town lately, and not just towns in South Carolina. Folks in Washington are taking note of her and the attention she is getting following the horrific shootings at a Charleston church last month.

The shootings have been described as hate crimes perpetrated by a white supremacist who displayed a Confederate battle flag in his pre shooting statements online. As a result, sentiment and urgency to remove that flag from display at state facilities reached a fever pitch. Nikki Haley, who had previously opposed removing the flag, did an about face in the wake of the tragedy, supporting the flag's removal.

Haley's willingness to let go of a viewpoint that has been dogmatically held by many in her state seemed to set her apart as more principled than most see other lawmakers. Her sincerity in declaring that she honestly could not defend that flag anymore to her own children was a breath of fresh air to voters.

Now Haley is seen as a potential force to be harnessed for the brewing GOP presidential primary. South Carolina has proven to be a pivotal state in GOP primaries of the past. But some look to Haley personally as potential running mate material.

"She'd be on anybody's list," Mike Huckabee said. "She's done a terrific job in South Carolina."

It is reasonable to assume that candidate Huckabee has his own eye on Nikki Haley.

"She could play a pivotal role in Van Cleef & Arpels alhambra necklace black replica [women's issues, education reform and long term immigration policy] and in the future of the party," Republican strategist van cleef & arpels necklace replica Juleanne Glover said. "She's an American success story with a van cleef Clover necklace imitation biographical narrative that lends itself to a larger, inspirational story. Friends who know her well have always been evangelical about her potential. They are not surprised."

That biographical narrative Glover speaks of includes the fact that Haley was the first female governor of South Carolina, but is also the child of immigrants. Born Nimrata Randhawa, her parents were immigrants from India.

However, some in South Carolina are still wary of Haley. The now popular governor has had to face scandals in recent years. If she were to be chosen as a potential running mate for a leading candidate, those scandals would no doubt have to be addressed. Folks gave details of his alleged liaisons with Haley.

If she is to be taken as a serious contender on a national level, Nikki Haley will have to find a way to put these allegations to be once and for all. While they may be old, the people of South Carolina have not forgotten them.

Jordy Clasie andRyan Bertrand send the Saints into EFL Cup semi

Arsenal 0 2 Southampton:Jordy Clasie andRyan Bertrand send the Saints into EFL Cup semi finals

Jordy Clasie opened the scoring with his first Southampton goal after drilling home past Emiliano MartinezThe Saints doubled their lead in the 38th minute when Ryan Bertrand found the bottom corner from 18 yardsArsenal boss Arsene Wenger was forced into substitution after Mohamed Elneny picked up first half knockA second string Arsenal outfit struggled to deal with the pace of Southampton's attack at the EmiratesBy

The student taught his master a thing or two as Arsene Wenger's managerial protege Claude Puel executed a smash and grab raid at the Emirates and Southampton booked their place in the EFL Cup semi finals.

Arsenal boss Wenger, who managed Puel as a player at Monaco, persuaded his countryman to take the St Mary's job in the summer. He will wish he hadn't after watching his side fall to their first defeat since their opening day loss to Liverpool a 19 game run.

Puel is now just a two legged tie from a Wembley final after goals from Jordy Clasie and Ryan Bertrand earned his side a last four clash with Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger, who has never won the League Van Cleef & Arpels Clover necklace replica Cup during his time with Arsenal, watched his second string team struggle

MATCH FACTS AND PLAYER RATINGSARSENAL (4 2 3 1): Martinez 5.5; Jenkinson 4.5 (Maitland Niles 64 6), Gabriel 6, Holding 6, Gibbs 6; Coquelin 6, Elneny 6 (Xhaka 43 6); Reine Adelaide 6 (Oxlade Chamberlain 62 6), Ramsey 6, Iwobi 5.5; Perez 6

Subs not used: Bielik, Bola, Macey, Mavididi

Booked: Elneny, Iwobi, Perez

Southampton (4 3 3): Forster 6.5; Martina 6, Yoshida 6, Van Dijk 7, Bertrand 8; Reed 6.5 (Hojbjerg 65 6), Clasie 7.5, Davis 6; Boufal 7 (Sims 66 6.5), Long 6, McQueen 6.5.

The Frenchman would gladly accept this defeat beautiful van cleef necklace clover replica if it guaranteed Premier League or Champions League glory.

He would even take winning the FA Cup and a top four Premier League finish over winning the EFL Cup.

Nonetheless, it is one trophy gone for the season. Have Arsenal got what it takes to win one of the remaining three? Time will tell.

Both managers fielded weakened sides for this clash and the changes made for a disjointed start.

That was until the 13th minute when Southampton took a shock lead from an unlikely source.

Arsenal looked to have things under control when Bertrand provided a trademark burst down the left before playing a low cross beyond Carl Jenkinson into the area.

Sofiane Boufal saw his replica Van Cleef & Arpels Clover Necklace with flower shot blocked by Gabriel only for the rebound to fall invitingly to Clasie on the edge of the area.

Given the Dutch midfielder had not scored since joining Southampton at the start of last season, Arsenal were well within their rights to believe the danger had been averted, only for Clasie to fire an unstoppable drive past third choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

Without big guns Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal simply were not clicking and youngsters Alex Iwobi and Jeff Reine Adelaide provided promising performances without a cutting edge.

Wenger could not wait for the half time whistle. And, in the 38th minute, nor could Jenkinson, who hardly covered himself in glory for Southampton's opener.

Somehow, when a simple pass or clearance would have sufficed, Jenkinson lost possession inside his own area as he was hustled off the ball by Bertrand and Harrison Reed.

Heritage site up in flames

The secluded, eight bedroom home, is located about 40 kilometres southeast of Brandon in the RM of South Cypress.

Trollope, a great granddaughter of Percy Criddle, has been part of the Criddle/Vane Homestead committee since its inception in 2000 and had one word to describe the feeling after the 108 year imitation Van Cleef & Arpels clover necklace old building was levelled by the late night flames.

The home has been a magnet for petty vandalism in recent years. The RCMP say about eight incidents have been reported since 2009, including smashed windows, kicked in walls and graffiti.

There were many conversations with the province in recent years on how to address the ongoing issue in the area monitored by Spruce Woods Provincial Park staff. But a major piece of the homestead is now gone and perhaps at some point will be replaced by a cairn, Trollope said.

"The memory can still be kept alive," she said.

"It's sad, it's really sad. I'm old enough to have been there when part of family still lived there."

Percy Criddle's 93 year old grandson Paul Criddle, who was instrumental in protecting the heritage site, also has fond memories of the homestead and was "overwhelmed" when he heard his grandparents' home burned to the ground.

"I feel very sick about it. I'm not in good humour or health."

In its heyday, the Criddle homestead featured a golf course, tennis courts and pasture. A lab, which was built in 1917 at a cost of $50, is the first entomological field station in Western Canada.

Blue Hills RCMP Staff Sgt. Mike Zens said the fire is considered suspicious by investigators, considering past incidents at the remote location.

"You have to look at the fact that it has been the location of previous vandalisms and damages," he said. "We didn't have any lightning strikes that could have set that off, there's no power going into the property itself so you have to look at those circumstances."

Police are relying on the public to provide any information about the blaze and no suspects have been identified.

"We're still actively involved in the investigation," Zens said. "Unfortunately, the home replica van cleef arpels bracelet was completely destroyed, so that makes evidence more problematic for us."

However, in 2012, police were able to track down five young people who smashed walls and extensively damaged the home.

Persistent mischief left the home looking like a derelict building in the final years of its life, despite its provincial significance.

Last month, the recurring vandalism forced the Department of Conservation and Water Stewardship to render van cleef fake necklace it off limits, along with the second lab building its windows boarded up and closed off to the public.

The province says the rest of the park remains open to the public.

The value of the building was its heritage and history, and not the building itself, so it was not insured, a provincial spokesman said.

Joost van der Westhuizen's son Jordan pens heartbreaking letter to ask him to 'tell God that Liverpool must win'

The son of the late former South Africa rugby player Joost van der Westhuizen has penned a heartbreaking letter following the death of his father last week at the age of 45.

Van der Westhuizen was capped 89 times by the Springboks during a career that took him to three Rugby World Cups, including the famous 1995 victory on home soil that united the nation of South Africa at a time when Apartheid was still very much a problem.

After retiring from rugby in 2003, Van der Westhuizen was diagnosed with motor neuron van cleef necklace fake disease in 2011, and defied medical expectations that gave him two years to life by surviving with the disease until last week.

An outpouring of tributes were paid to the former scrum half, whose funeral was held on Friday with a memorial service taking place at Loftus Versfeld home of the Blue Bulls side that Van Cleef and Arpels fake Necklace he represented in front of nearly 15,000 mourners.

But the most heart breaking tribute of all has been paid by his 13 year old son, Jordan, who said he wanted "to be the best sportsman like you" in a touching letter that was hand written and included a drawn picture of them together on a rugby pitch, along with four No 9 rugby shirts with the names of Joost and his three children on. I want to be the best sportsman like you, because you said I must work hard!

"I will always love you to the moon [and] back."

Liverpool fan Jordan added that he wanted Van der Westhuizen to "please tell God that Liverpool must win", before adding: "you will never walk alone. I love you so much."

The letter, which was penned before the weekend, is all the more touching given that Liverpool went on to beat Tottenham on Saturday evening 2 0 in their Premier League encounter at Anfield.

A number of past and present rugby players spoke of their memories of Van der Westhuizen on the pitch, and noted his incredible physicality that was rarely seen in a scrum half often the smallest player on the pitch.

Wales head coach and former Test No 9 Rob Howley said last week: "It is devastating to hear of the passing of Joost. "We all know his qualities on the pitch, he was a fantastic rugby player and for me was the best nine I played against. He had the ability to score tries from five or 70 yards, he was that good.

"He was a world class nine who was respected throughout the rugby world."

Nearly 200 people were arrested early Friday after demonstrators flooded the streets of downtown Los Angeles and marched between City Hall and the Staples Center, the third night of demonstrations against the election of Donald Trump as president.

An estimated 185 people were arrested and one officer was injured during the hours long demonstrations, LAPD officials said. Details on the officer's injuries were not available but he was expected to be released from the hospital early Friday, said Officer Norma Eisenman.

The crowd halted traffic but was mostly peaceful, although some vandalized property with graffiti, hurled bottles and launched fireworks during the incidents late Thursday and early Friday. At one point, a large boom resembling that of a firecracker thundered near 2nd and Spring streets.

One person defaced a Los Angeles police cruiser, prompting officers to reach for beanbag shotguns, but a clash with demonstrators was avoided.

A man with a megaphone urged fellow demonstrators not to resort to vandalism.

"We are proud and productive people, and we're gonna show them that," he yelled. Jack Richter, an LAPD spokesman.

The crowd swelled to more than 300 as it marched through the city, many shouting profane chants that disparaged Trump. "Not my president" echoed throughout the downtown corridors. Officers urged them not to return.

"We don't want anyone to get arrested tonight," one LAPD commander told the crowd.

But attempts to gain order were often disrupted. At one point, a firecracker boomed, and at least one person was arrested but details were not immediately available, LAPD Officer Sal Ramirez said. near the dog park outside Los Angeles Police Department headquarters, according to LAPD Officer Tony Im. The man was taken into custody and it's unclear if he was involved in the demonstrations.

Jose Garcia, 25, came to downtown from South Gate and said the protests were a way to demand that Trump govern not just his supporters but the entire nation.

"People say it fake Van Cleef and Arpels necklace doesn't achieve anything, but I feel like as long as our voices are heard, we won't be shut out," Garcia said.

Bill Doyle, 53, of Los Angeles said he came to protest for a personal reason: The Affordable Care Act lowered the price of his wife's cancer treatments, and he worried that Trump may repeal the healthcare measure.

But he also wanted Trump to disavow what he described as racist rhetoric by the candidate during the campaign.

"If we don't have a country that's safe to live in, what's the point?" Doyle said. "The Republicans need to wake up and deal with this.

The protests mirrored demonstrations across the state. and blocked traffic, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Marc Johnston.

Niet een crimineel of een Hoodlum

De juggalos zijn een van de meest onbegrepen muziek gebaseerde

subculturen rond vandaag. Het lijkt erop dat om de paar jaar wanneer de mainstream media een ouder moet schrikken verhaal, een vervelen verslaggever graaft van een misdaad en vindt een manier om schuld het op de juggalos. Maar bijna alle van deze zogenaamde "onderzoeken" krijgen de juggalo wat betekent dat alle verkeerd.

Dus wat is een juggalo? Een juggalo is, eerst en vooral een fan van de ondergrondse horror Detroit gebaseerde rapgroep de Insane Clown Posse. ICP heeft genoten van een 20 jarige carrire door het zijn allemaal over het geven terug aan haar fans de juggalos.

Toch, de betekenis van juggalo is veel gedebatteerd en veel verkeerd begrepen. Ten eerste, is er het woord zelf, die grappig kan klinken.

Legende heeft het de term "een juggalo" dook voor het eerst tijdens een voorstelling Insane Clown Posse 1994 van het nummer "The Juggla", waarin gewelddadige J, verwijzend naar de menigte, willekeurig het woord uitgevonden. Het geplakt, met de groep opbouwen met zijn beruchte 1997 lied "wat is een Juggalo?"

Dit is waar enkele van de misvattingen over de betekenis van juggalo begon. Het nummer verscheen op een van de ICP bestverkopende albums, de grote Milenko, die de mainstream hit. Fans wisten niet serieus te nemen "Wat is een Juggalo" teksten, vooral met uittreksels als volgt: "wat is een juggalo? / Een fucking gek."

Maar als je nam dat letterlijk, zou je de juggalo wat betekent dat alle verkeerd. De echte juggalo betekenis is dat een juggalo zijn of haar eigen persoon is (er zijn tal van vrouwen onder de juggalos, en ze zijn bekend als juggalettes).

De echte juggalo betekenis is dat de juggalos familie, en kijk uit voor elkaar als familie. De echte juggalo betekenis is dat de Replica Van Cleef & Arpels necklace subcultuur een juggalo van alle facetten van het leven accepteert, zelfs als de rest van de samenleving heeft die persoon voor zijn of haar plaats in leven of gewoon voor een juggalo worden geminacht.

De juggalos zijn niet boeven, zelfs als ze willen hebben een goede tijd. In veel van de high profile misdaden te wijten aan een juggalo, blijkt meestal dat de rapportage verkeerd was of de crimineel was niet echt een juggalo.

Een juggalo zou, voor een ding, nooit bewust iets doen om de rest van de juggalos kijken slecht, wetende dat de betekenis van juggalo is dus al verkeerd.

De juggalos deze dagen gebruiken hun gedeelde fandom als een internationaal netwerk bij elkaar en de minder bedeelden. De juggalo zin breidt echt als je kijkt naar het aantal projecten gesponsord door de juggalos.

Er zijn kerken gerund door de juggalos, gelijke rechten activist groepen uitgevoerd door de juggalos, een aantal goede doelen gerund door de juggalos, en zelfs een anti drunk driving coalitie gerund door de juggalos. Dit waarschijnlijk blaast de hoofden van de meeste mensen vast op het algemene idee van de betekenis van juggalo.

Echte juggalos en nieuwe fans kunnen komen ervaring de ware juggalo zin op zijn best deze zomer op de jaarlijkse bijeenkomst van het Juggalos festival in Illinois Cave in Rock. Heel eenvoudig, het is zoals geen andere zomerfestival.

Judge declines to suppress evidence in whiskey

LOUISVILLE, Ky. The alleged ringleader of a whiskey theft ring suffered a legal setback Tuesday when a Kentucky judge denied his motion to suppress evidence including Wild Turkey bourbon barrels found on his property that led to his arrest. The thefts included prestigious brands, such as Pappy Van Winkle bourbon, officials said.

An attorney for Gilbert "Toby" Curtsinger, a one time distillery worker and the alleged ringleader, tried to suppress evidence that included several barrels of Wild Turkey bourbon found on Curtsinger's property. Defence attorney Whitney True Lawson argued that the confiscation by sheriff's officers violated her client's rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Wingate disagreed in his ruling that ended a lull in the "Pappygate" case.

"The defendant's reasonable expectation of privacy was not violated because officers observed, in plain view, bourbon barrels on the defendant's property from an open field in which the defendant had no claim of privacy," the judge said.

Prosecutor Zachary Becker said he was pleased with the ruling.

Lawson declined comment other than to say: "We've gotten the order and we're reviewing it so that we can determine how to move forward."

Curtsinger has pleaded copy van cleef and arpels necklace not guilty to charges that include engaging in organized crime, receiving stolen property over $10,000 and trafficking in a controlled substance. Sheriff Pat Melton estimated that all the recovered whiskey was worth at least $100,000. Most have agreed to testify against replica van cleef jewelry Curtsinger, prosecutors said.

Curtsinger's suppression motion stemmed from a crucial day of the investigation, when the Franklin van cleef gold necklace imitation County sheriff's office received an anonymous tip that five missing Wild Turkey bourbon barrels were stashed on Curtsinger's property.

Sheriff's officers went to Curtsinger's home but no one responded. The officers returned to a public access road that ran to wooded land next to his property.

"No paths, fences or 'no trespass' signs appeared in the woods," Wingate said. "The officers never left the forested area to cross onto the mowed, grassy area surrounding the residence until they obtained a search warrant to search the property.

"From their vantage point in the woods, the officers observed what they believed to be bourbon barrels visible under plastic tarps behind an outbuilding on the property."

The officers took photos, and one of them left to obtain the search warrant. The officers who stayed behind said they smelled a "strong odour" of bourbon coming from the direction of the barrels, the ruling said.
