Rising cashew demand fuels smuggling from Ivory Coast
21 March 2017 - Rising demand for cashew nuts has fueled smuggling from Ivory Coast to Ghana and other countries, damaging the quality of exports from the world's top producer, farmers, and exporters said on Tuesday, 21 March. Ivory Coast is on track to produce a record 715,000 tonnes of raw cashews this year thanks to good weather, but exporters estimate that about 100,000 tonnes, including the best-quality nuts, could be smuggled out of the country.

Health and behavior problems can linger after child abuse
20 March 2017 - Children who have suffered from abuse or neglect may have physical or behavioral health problems even after the mistreatment stops, new guidelines for pediatricians emphasize. Although some children recover from adversity, traumatic experiences can result in significant disruption of normal development, researchers note in Pediatrics. (more)

Great Barrier Reef will never be as pristine as it once was: scientists
16 March 2017 - Parts of Australia's Great Barrier Reef will never recover from the impact of unseasonably warm waters, scientists said on Thursday [16 March], as more of the World Heritage Site comes under renewed threat from a recent spike in sea temperatures. Warm seas around the reef killed some two-thirds of a 700 kilometer (496.4 miles) stretch of coral last year after warm water caused the coral to expel living algae, triggering it to calcify and turn white, a process known as bleaching. That was the worst die-off of coral ever recorded at the reef. (more)

Lack of sleep linked to behavioral problems in kids
16 March 2017 - Getting too little sleep in early childhood is linked to cognitive and behavioral problems years later, a U.S. study suggests. 'Children who aren't getting the recommended amount of sleep have more difficulties with attention, with emotional control, with reasoning, with problem-solving, and also have behavioral problems,' lead author Dr. Elsie Taveras told Reuters Health.

Yemen at 'point of no return' as conflict leaves almost 7 million close to famine
16 March 2017 - Aid agencies have warned that Yemen is 'at the point of no return' after new figures released by the UN indicated 17 million people are facing severe food insecurity and will fall prey to famine without urgent humanitarian assistance. Taiz and Hodeidah governorates, home to almost 25 per cent of Yemen's 28 million-strong population and the scene of intense conflict since the outbreak of civil war in 2015, are at particularly heightened risk of famine.

Growing algae bloom in Arabian Sea tied to climate change
15 March 2017 - The Gulf of Oman turns green twice a year, when an algae bloom the size of Mexico spreads across the Arabian Sea all the way to India. Scientists who study the algae say the microscopic organisms are thriving in new conditions brought about by climate change, and displacing the zooplankton that underpin the local food chain, threatening the entire marine ecosystem. The swarms of microscopic creatures beneath the surface of the Gulf of Oman were all but invisible 30 years ago -- now they form giant, murky shapes that can be seen from satellites. Across the planet, blooms have wrecked local ecosystems. Algae can paralyze fish, clog their gills, and absorb enough oxygen to suffocate them. Whales, turtles, dolphins, and manatees have died, poisoned by algal toxins, in the Atlantic and Pacific. These toxins have infiltrated whole marine food chains and have, in rare cases, killed people, according to the U.N. science agency. Scientists based at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University trace Oman's blooms to melting ice in the Himalayas. (more)

Now hear this: Loud sound may pose more harm than we thought (+ hearing test prepared for AP)
14 March 2017 - Scientists have been finding evidence that loud noise -- from rock concerts, leaf blowers, power tools, and the like -- damages our hearing in a previously unsuspected way. It may not be immediately noticeable, and it does not show up in standard hearing tests. But over time, Harvard researcher M. Charles Liberman says, it can rob our ability to understand conversation in a noisy setting. It may also help explain why people have more trouble doing that as they age. And it may lead to persistent ringing in the ears. (more)

Hate daylight saving time? You may have a point, researchers say
11 March 2017 - For most Americans, daylight saving time means only one thing: losing an hour's sleep. So what is the point? This is actually a reasonable question, according to a growing body of scientific research. When clocks in almost all of the United States spring forward by an hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, it will likely prompt an increase in heart attacks and strokes, cause more car accidents, and reduce worker productivity, according to studies. It will also fail to cut the nation's energy bill, contrary to what the experts once believed. (more)

Decreased Crime Rate chart

When one per cent of the population of a city or town practices Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Programme, the crime rate significantly decreases over the long term. This is known as the Maharishi Effect, which is the phenomenon of the rise of coherence in the collective consciousness of any community.

   
   
   

The collective practice of Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme creates harmony and coherence throughout the environment, leading to reduced hostility and increased cooperation between nations.

   
   
Reduced Armed Conflict chart
 

Large groups of individuals practising Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme create an environment of harmony and coherence for themselves and for the whole world.

   
   
Reduced Conflict chart
   

When the number of individuals practising Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme in a group excedes the square root of one per cent of a nation’s population,there is a significant reduction in conflict both at home and throughout the world.
