Will Lithium really bring this desperate Country prosperity or will it prove just a lost opportunity? Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt lake in the world and contains the most lithium on earth. Lithium is used to treat mental illness, build nuclear bombs and power laptops. It is an important ingredient enabling batteries to store and expel power. "They want us to speed up the handover of lithium and to move faster towards capitalist partnerships", explains Jose Pimentel, Bolivian Mines Minister, "But the government's policy has been determined; we're going to take our own decisive steps towards the process of industrialising lithium". Bolivia is stuck in an industrial time warp and wants to control the process closely. The question is will the world wait?

In this documentary we know the culture of Australian Aboriginal tribes. SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs The Men of the Fifth World is a documentary that shows us the history, culture and traditions of the Australian aborigines, primitive tribes who inhabit these lands. The old Garimala Yakar, tells firsthand how their world is accompanied by the sound of the didgeridoo, the beat of their tradition, which keeps them together and attached to the land. These tribes have had to defend their country from the impositions of the white man when he came to Australia for the first time. The aboriginal culture has faded over time but they never cease to tell their story to the youngest and keep the hope that someday find their truth. In the Kakadu National Park lies Ubirrok, where the Rainbow Serpent stopped after creating the world and was painted on a rock so that people could see her. Over time our forefathers left on the rocks a complete collection of images which depict their way of life and their beliefs. On these ancient rocks they also drew figures of the men of that time, warriors and hunters, who used the same spears and harpoons as we do now. We share our land with all types of animals, some of them as dangerous the kangaroo is the most characteristic animal of my country. When we get together to dance around the fire, we sing the dreams of the animals, the stories of how they were created. Those that dance and sing paint their faces and bodies with kaolin, to look like the spirits which, according to our beliefs, are of a grey colour. The dance of the women is slower and more measured. They are normally in a state of trance, possessed by the spirits of the forest which protect them. The didgeridoo It’s our sacred instrument. The men who know how to play it are very important in our culture. With the didgeridoo they communicate our wishes to the spirits. And they call on them to come to our aid when tragedy befalls us. This sacred instrument brings us closer to the world of our ancestors. It is difficult to play, because you have to blow constantly, using the technique of circular breathing. The didgeridoos are made by the ants. Our land, here in northern Australia, is the kingdom of the ants. Our people were nomads, always moving from one place to another, carrying their few belongings with them. That is why we know the forest so well. In the forest, we know how to get everything we need. The men have always hunted and fished, while our women are expert gatherers. They know where to find edible fruits and roots, and how to get honey. The women have always worked in the forest, carrying out these tasks. No one knows nature like they do. Their work is very dangerous. They often come across the king brown, one of the most poisonous snakes in the world, its bite is always fatal. Hunting and war have always been men’s work, and they have always made their own weapons. Without a doubt, the boomerang is the best known of these. They are pieces of wood carved with a slight curve, which makes them more accurate when they are thrown. In fact, the spear is our best weapon. We used them in our fight against the white men who invaded our country and drove us off the land that belonged to us. Our spears claim other victims. When the tide goes out, we fish for the dangerous sting rays. These are manta rays that hide in the sand, ready to plunge their enormous stings into anyone who dares disturb them. Our coasts are full of animals, which traditionally provided us with food. When we have speared an animal, we throw a buoy into the water, with a long rope tied to harpoon. Whenever they catch a giant turtle, the fishermen arrange a feast, right there on the beach, to which all their relatives are invited. “My people have always felt the need to express themselves through painting, now and since the beginning of time. Our art, now called aboriginal art by the white man’s tourist industry, is born from the dreams of each artist and the intense colours we see in our land. Near the city of Darwin, my people call to the spirit of the king of the crocodiles with piercing cries. It is a dance of invocation. It is performed whenever someone has to travel to an area where the powerful sea crocodiles live. They ask for its permission and protection, but the great spirit is always asleep, and so they have to cry out to wake him, so that he knows that people have gathered together to dance in his honour.

I made a batch of charcoal using the mound method then stored it in baskets for later use. Charcoal is a fuel that burns hotter than the wood it's made from. This is because the initial energy consuming steps of combustion have taken place while making the charcoal driving off the volatile components of the wood (such as water and sap). The result is a nearly pure carbon fuel that burns hotter than wood without smoke and with less flame. Charcoal was primarily a metallurgical fuel in ancient times but was sometimes used for cooking too. To make the charcoal the wood was broken up and stacked in to a mound with the largest pieces in the center and smaller sticks and leaves on the out side. The mound was coated in mud and a hole was left in the top while 8 smaller air holes were made around the base of the mound. A fire was kindled in the top of the mound using hot coals from the fire and the burning process began (the hot coals are being poured in the top using a small pot at 2:38). The fire burned down the inside of the mound against the updraft. I reason that this is a better way to make charcoal as the rising flames have used up the oxygen and prevent the charcoal already made above them from burning while driving out even more volatiles . I watched the air holes at the base of the mound and when the fire had burned right up to each opening I plugged them with mud. Once all 8 holes had be sealed the hole in the top of the mound was sealed with mud and the mound left to cool. From lighting the mound to closing up the holes the whole process took about 4 hours. The next day when the mound was cool to the touch (this can take about 2 days sometimes) I opened the mound. The resulting charcoal was good quality. Some wood near the air entries had burned to ash though these were only small twigs and leaves. This is the reason small brush is put on the out side of the mound, to be burned preferentially to the larger wood on the inside thus protecting the large pieces of charcoal. The charcoal that was made was hard and shiny. When broken open it had the ray structure of the wood preserved. When moving the hand through it the charcoal sounded tinny, like coral on a beach being moved by waves. These are signs of good quality. Bad charcoal is soft, breaks easily and has a muffled sound. I intend to use the charcoal to produce hotter fires than I'm able to with wood alone. From my research, a natural draft furnace using wood (a kiln) can reach a maximum of 1400 c degrees whereas a natural draft furnace using charcoal can reach 1600 c degrees. Achieving high temperatures is necessary for changing material to obtain better technology (e.g. smelting ore into metal).

Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au and atomic number 79. In its purest form, it is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, dense, soft, malleable, and ductile metal. Chemically, gold is a transition metal and a group 11 element. It is one of the least reactive chemical elements and is solid under standard conditions. Gold often occurs in free elemental form, as nuggets or grains, in rocks, in veins, and in alluvial deposits. It occurs in a solid solution series with the native element silver and also naturally alloyed with copper and palladium. Less commonly, it occurs in minerals as gold compounds, often with tellurium . Gold is thought to have been produced in supernova nucleosynthesis, from the collision of neutron stars, and to have been present in the dust from which the Solar System formed. Because the Earth was molten when it was formed, almost all of the gold present in the early Earth probably sank into the planetary core. Therefore, most of the gold that is in the Eart... http://www.wikividi.com ____________________________________ Shortcuts to chapters: 00:03:50: Characteristics 00:05:15: Color 00:06:53: Isotopes 00:08:36: Synthesis 00:10:58: Chemistry 00:15:03: Rare oxidation states 00:17:08: Occurrence 00:22:22: Seawater 00:24:09: History 00:31:41: Etymology 00:32:23: Culture 00:34:36: Mining and prospecting 00:38:24: Extraction and refining 00:39:56: Consumption 00:40:40: Pollution 00:42:56: Monetary use 00:49:01: Price 00:50:03: History 00:54:29: Jewelry 00:56:31: Electronics 00:59:30: Medicine ____________________________________ Copyright WikiVidi.

For most people, railroads in Alaska and the Yukon are synonymous with the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass and Yukon Railroad whose passenger cars provide tourists with vistas of awe-inspiring terrain. That same terrain provided enormous challenges for early settlers of both territories. Railroads were an integral part of overcoming those challenges. Dozens of other railroads also laid track in Alaska, the Yukon, and northwest British Columbia and provided the means to transport supplies to settlements and to transport the region’s raw materials to outside markets. Klondike Alaska charts the history of many of those railroads. ©KUAC 2005 DVD's of this program are available for purchase at www.kuac.org.

Large painted cloths (pichhwais) were made to hang behind the main image in a temple. This textile was produced for the Festival of Cows (Gopashtami), which occurs in the late autumn to celebrate Krishna’s elevation from a herder of calves to a cowherd. Note the range of cows and frolicking calves that populate the flower-strewn field. The indigo ground and extensive use of gold and silver are typical of pichhwais that were made for a community of Sri Nathji devotees who moved to the Deccan during this period. This picture—at once austere and tender—belongs to a series of seven showing the life of Christ. The masterly depiction of the stable, which is viewed from slightly below, and the columnar solidity of the figures are typical of Giotto, the founder of European painting. The impetuous action of the kneeling king, who picks up the Christ Child, and Mary’s expression of concern translate the Biblical account into deeply human terms. As the sculptor Ghiberti declared (ca. 1450): "[Giotto] made [art] natural and gave it gentleness." Spaniards arriving in sixteenth-century South America encountered a rich and complex indigenous tradition of gold working that had developed over the course of millennia. Many, if not most, Precolumbian works in gold were melted down in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, their precious metal repurposed for new religious and secular leaders both in Spain and the Americas. This crown was made to adorn a sacred image of the Virgin Mary venerated in the cathedral of Popayán (Colombia). A symbol of the Virgin’s divine queenship, the crown is encircled by golden vinework set with emerald clusters in the shape of flowers, a reference to her purity. The diadem is topped by imperial arches and a cross-bearing orb that symbolizes Christ’s dominion over the world. Although the practice was controversial, it was common to bestow lavish gifts, including jewels and sumptuous garments, on sculptures of the Virgin Mary. To gain salvation, the faithful sought her intercession and worked to honor her and increase the splendor of her worship. At the same time, the crown represents one of the most distinctive artistic achievements of a region whose wealth derived from the mining of gold and emeralds. Kings and nobles became increasingly powerful and independent of temple authority during the course of the Early Dynastic period (2900–2350 B.C.), although the success of a king's reign was considered to depend on support from the gods. A striking measure of royal wealth was the cemetery in the city of Ur, in which sixteen royal tombs were excavated in the 1920s and 1930s by Sir Leonard Woolley. These tombs consisted of a vaulted burial chamber for the king or queen, an adjoining pit in which as many as seventy-four attendants were buried, and a ramp leading into the grave from the ground. This delicate chaplet of gold leaves separated by lapis lazuli and carnelian beads adorned the forehead of one of the female attendants in the so-called King's Grave. In addition, the entombed attendants wore necklaces of gold and lapis lazuli, gold hair ribbons, and silver hair rings. Since gold, silver, lapis, and carnelian are not found in Mesopotamia, the presence of these rich adornments in the royal tomb attests to the wealth of the Early Dynastic kings as well as to the existence of a complex system of trade that extended far beyond the Mesopotamian River valley. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXkEiZwln1Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_UmLNMb-o4 https://youtu.be/aAnnPTVcw8E Music: https://www.bensound.com

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Luis Carbajal, Island resident: "All of the families living here get a living out of the tourists. The income is not a lot. We live off the tourists who come and stay here and of what we sell, but right now we have nobody." 15. Various of tourists at marketplace on island STORYLINE: A heavy police presence ensured that continuing protests against a planned silver mine in Peru's southern highlands remained peaceful on Tuesday. The mostly Aymara Indians have been peacefully demonstrating for more than two weeks, demanding that the government revoke the licence for the Canadian-owned Santa Ana mine in the Puno region - mainly with a blockade that has paralysed commerce at the nearby Bolivian border crossing. Shop owners and tourism sector workers in Puno held a protest of their own on Tuesday about the increasing economic cost of the blockade. The mine in dispute is owned by Bear Creek Mining Corp., a company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, that says it has invested 25 (m) million US dollars in the project and had hoped to begin production next year. Protesters say they fear the mine will contaminate Lake Titicaca - one of Peru's biggest tourist sites - hurting fishing and farming. Bear Creek's director has said the mine would have no impact on South America's biggest lake, which straddles the border between Peru and Bolivia. He said it isn't in the same drainage basin as Titicaca. Last Thursday, protests by some 10-thousand people from both sides of the border turned violent when rioters attacked the tax office in Puno, hauling files and furniture into the street and setting them ablaze. Protesters smashed windows at other public buildings and banks and burned several vehicles. On Tuesday, trucks brought more protesters to Puno to demonstrate in its main square, only to find shop owners and local residents holding their own protest. One local business owner said "the negotiations moved forward, our authorities went to Lima and they made great advances to solve the environmental problems we had in Puno." The ongoing dispute is also affecting tourism on Lake Titicaca's floating Uros islands, which had only a handful of visitors on Monday. The islands - made from reeds - typically receive at least three boats of tourists daily. Luis Carbajal, a local resident, told AP Television: "All of the families living here get a living out of the tourists. The income is not a lot. We live off the tourists who come and stay here and of what we sell, but right now we have nobody." Companies have pledged more than 40 (b) billion US dollars in investments in Peru's mining sector in the coming decade.

Ilchi Lee made his first trip to El Salvador from September 11th to 13th, 2018. This small Central American nation has been plagued by civil war, poverty, and gang violence, but has been moving toward peace. One of the tools they are using to fashion healthier, more peaceful, and more hopeful lives for themselves and, especially, the next generation is Brain Education, the mind-body-spirit self-development method Ilchi Lee created. Through the efforts of the NGO IBREA Foundation and the support of the Salvadoran and South Korean governments and Ilchi Lee's Global Cyber University, the Brain Education program has been implemented in 25 percent of the public schools in the country. As a result, these schools, and the families and communities they influence, have become places where students and teachers work together in harmony, where people are not as afraid to come to school, and where academic achievement has improved. The main reason for making this trip was to receive the national award, José Simeón Cañas Slave Liberator Order, from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Catch the highlights of this heartwarming and inspiring trip. http://www.ilchi.com https://ibreafoundation.org/

It's a cemetery for trains, for locomotives. And it's so big that it looks as though all of the trains in South America were moved to Uyuni, Bolivia, to chug their last chug. Filled with hollowed out bodies that have completely rusted over and other remains, the "Great Train Graveyard" can be found on the otherwise deserted outskirts of Uyuni, a small trading region high in the Andean plain. Uyuni has long been known as an important transportation hub in South America and it connects several major cities. In the early 19th century, big plans were made to build an even bigger network of trains out of Uyuni, but the project was abandoned because of a combination of technical difficulties and tension with neighboring countries. The trains and other equipment were left to rust and fade out of memory. Most of the trains that can be found in the Graveyard date back to the early 20th century and were imported from Britain. In other places in the world, the mighty steel trains would have held up better. The salt winds that blow over Uyuni, which hosts the world's largest salt plain, have corroded all of the metal. Without guards or even a fence, these pieces were picked over and vandalized long ago. Located some 3 km outside the trading town of Uyuni, in southwest Bolivia, lies an antique train cemetery. In the past, Uyuni was an important transport junction, connecting key cities in the region, but plans to turn the town into an even greater railway hub died an early death. Construction on the network was started in 1888. It was encouraged by the then Bolivian President Aniceto Arce, who believed Bolivia would flourish with a good transport system, but it was also constantly sabotaged by the local Aymara indigenous Indians who saw it as an intrusion into their lives. The trains were mostly used by the mining companies. But in the 1940s, when the mining industry collapsed, partly due to the mineral depletion, many trains were abandoned thereby producing the train cemetery. Most travellers who visit Uyuni, located at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above sea level up in the Andes of Bolivia are probably there for the famous Salar de Uyuni, the word's largest salt flat which is used for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites. Another tourist attraction of Uyuni though is the 'Cementerio de trenes', the antique train cemetary, 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) outside the town. From the end of the 19th century till this day, Uyuni has been an important transportation hub for trains. The rail lines, constructed between 1888 and 1892, were built by British engineers who were invited by the British-sponsored Antofagasta and Bolivia Railway Companies. For the next decades the trains were used for carrying minerals from the Andes mountains to the Pacific Ocean ports. Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Kuch-Alag-Kuch-Hatke-170934420121320/

Bato Muniko Phool, directed by Suraj Subba 'Nalbo,' is a tender love story built around the age old problem of caste and untouchability that persists in the Hindu society of Nepal. It also marks the acting début of popular singers Yash Kumar as Suresh and Babu Bogati as Kanchha, starring opposite the popular, charismatic Rekha Thapa as Gurans, and the heartbreakingly beautiful Nandita KC as Tulasi. Suresh and Gurans have always loved each other, but the deep division of caste separates them. Kanchha loves Tulasi with all of his heart, but Tulasi can't imagine marrying Kanchha, who is even a lower caste and untouchable. Complete with soulful, meaningful melodies by the singer-actors, Bato Muniko Phool contains messages on difficult contemporary issues, while still telling a love story with a timeless appeal.

In the past 50 years much of the rainforest in Africa and Asia has been destroyed. Large areas of #rainforest are being cut down, often in order to remove just a few logs, and rainforest is being destroyed at double the rate of all previous estimates. Unfortunately this means that there is a very high rate of extinction, as the wildlife depending on the forest dies with it. CATTLE RANCHING Many rainforests in Central and South #America have been burnt down to make way for cattle farming, which supplies cheap beef to North America, China and Russia. It is estimated that for each pound of beef produced, 200 square feet of rainforest is destroyed. In the past 20 years Costa Rica has lost the majority of its forests to beef cattle ranching. This is known as slash and burn farming and is believed to account for 50% of rainforest destruction. However, the land cannot be used for long: the soil is of poor quality and, without the forest, quickly becomes very dry. The grass often dies after only a few years and the land becomes a crusty desert. The cattle farmers then have to move on and destroy more rainforest to create new cattle pastures. Indigenous Indians also use "slash and burn" farming techniques, but on a small scale. For centuries they have used a sustainable system where, when they finish using one small patch of land, they move away to a different area and allow the forest to regenerate. Since the area cleared is small, the soil does not dry out and therefore the forest clearance is localized and temporary rather than extensive and permanent. #LOGGING This is believed to be the second largest cause of deforestation. Timber companies cut down huge trees such as mahogany and teak and sell them to other countries to make furniture. Smaller trees are often used for the production of charcoal. Vast areas of rainforest are cut in one go (clear felling) and the most valuable trees are selected for timber, leaving the others for wood chipping. The roads that are created in order to cut and remove the timber often lead to further damage: see the effect of forest roads under "Oil Companies". AGRICULTURE Much of the fruit, cereals and pulses we buy from tropical countries have been grown in areas where tropical rainforests once thrived. The forests are cut down to make way for vast plantations where products such as bananas, palm oil, pineapple, sugar cane, tea and coffee are grown. As with cattle ranching, the soil will not sustain crops for long, and after a few years the farmers have to cut down more rainforest for new plantations. MINING The developed nations relentlessly demand minerals and metals such as diamonds, oil, aluminium, copper and gold, which are often found in the ground below rainforests. The rainforests therefore have to be removed in order to extract them. Poisonous chemicals are sometimes used to separate the waste from the minerals, for example mercury, which is used to separate gold from the soil and debris with which it is mixed. These chemicals often find their way into rivers, polluting water supplies which local people depend on, killing fish and other animals that feed on them. OIL #COMPANIES Rainforests are seriously affected by oil companies searching for new oil deposits. This is incredibly damaging as often large roads are built through untouched forests in order to build pipelines and extract the oil. This encourages settlers to move into hitherto pristine forests and start slash-and-burn farming or cutting more timber for sale or the production of charcoal. Once established, the oil pipelines which transport the oil often rupture, spouting gallons of oil into the surrounding forest, killing wildlife and contaminating the water supplies of local villages. DAMS The World Bank and large companies invest money in developing countries to build dams for the generation of electricity. This can involve flooding vast areas of rainforest. Dams built in rainforest areas often have a short life because the submerged forest gradually rots, making the reservoir water acidic, which eventually corrodes the dam turbines. The dams can also become blocked with soil washed down from deforested highlands in heavy rains. This can cause great problems, such as flooding. HOW CAN YOU HELP TO SAVE THE RAINFORESTS? Have a look at our kids Page for information on how you can help us including sponsoring your own acre or more of rainforest.

The Toxic Garden: The Toxic Garden is a speculation on the by-products of an industry that lies behind the scenes of modern living, existing on the periphery of our experience of the world. The project infiltrates the iron ore supply chain in Western Australia, which exists in its most extreme at Port Hedland. The main by-product of the iron ore industry is the fine dust that coats the surrounding townscape. Instead of a solution to this toxicity, The Toxic Garden speculates how we can reconcile two opposing values - the economic value of the mineral terrain and the cultural value of Australia's ancient and sacred landscapes. The physical properties of the dust collected directly from the site are examined in scale stage sets. The conventional drawing is transformed into a machine where dust is moved by electrostatics and the dancing pulses of electricity. The designing of atmospheres is just as critical as that of physical objects. the architect becomes a choreographer of effects and phenomena, rather than discreet built objects. Live simulations are the tools in creating these atmospheres as a way of investigating the role of the architect. Shifting Planes: The shifting planes garden creates drawings in the earth, which are new stories in landscape. Influenced by indigenous aboriginal dream-time stories, these new mythological landscapes are the cultural warning signs to our modern lives. www.eojpearce.co.uk for more details

http://www.euronews.com/ The European Union and Spain have spoken out again the Bolivian government's nationalisation of the local unit of Spanish power transmission company Red Electrica. Brussels says the move sends a negative signal to international investors over doing business in Bolivia. John Clancy, trade spokesman for the European Commission, the EU's executive, said: "Actions like this one necessarily send a negative signal to international investors over the business and investment climate in Bolivia." "We trust the Bolivian authorities will fully uphold their investment agreements with Spain and ensure prompt and adequate compensation for this expropriation." Spain's Economy Minister Luis de Guindos said Madrid does not like what has happened, but said Bolivia has guaranteed compensation will be paid. He added: "We believe it's fundamental to maintain legal security when investing in countries like Bolivia," Bolivia's leftist President Evo Morales justified the nationalisation by saying the company had failed to invest enough and that he has "an obligation to.. recover what is ours." At the same time Bolivia took pains to reassure Spanish energy group Repsol's chairman Antonio Brufau that its investments in the country are safe. Morales made that pledge at the opening of a Repsol gas plant said to be worth around 100 million euros. Repsol is obviously nervous following the recent nationalisation by Argentina of Repsol's stake in its YPF subsidiary in Argentina. Spain has so far struggled to come up with a strong response to Argentina's move against Repsol, although the European Commission has said it is studying "all options".

Leading economic expert Jim Rogers traveled to 150 countries over 150,000 miles in three years - follow his adventures here on FentonReport. In this video Jim and Paige visit Sucre, Bolivia. Copyright Jim Rogers - provided as a special contribution to The Fenton Report. http://www.fentonreport.com Sucre (population 247,300 in 2006) is the constitutional capital of Bolivia, seat of the Supreme Court (Corte Suprema de Justicia), and capital of the Chuquisaca department. Located in the south-central part of the country, Sucre lies at an altitude of 2750m (9,000ft). Its lower altitude gives the city a warm temperate climate year-round. On November 30, 1538 Sucre was founded under the name Ciudad de la Plata de la Nueva Toledo by Pedro Anzures, Marqués de Campo Redondo. In 1538 the Spanish King Philip II established the Audiencia de Charcas in La Plata with authority over an area which covers what is now Paraguay, southeastern Peru, Northern Chile and Argentina, and much of Bolivia. The Audiencia de Charcas was a subdivision of the Viceroyalty of Peru. In 1601 the Recoleta Monastery was founded by the Franciscans and in 1609, an archbishopric was founded in the city. In 1624, St Francis Xavier University of Chuquisaca was founded. Very much a Spanish city during the colonial era, the narrow streets of the city centre are organised in a grid, reflecting the Andalusian culture that is embodied in the architecture of the city's great houses and numerous convents and churches. Sucre remains the seat of the Catholic church in Bolivia, and a common sight is members of religious orders dressed in traditional costume. For much of its colonial history, Sucre's temperate climate was preferred by the Spanish royalty and wealthy families involved in silver trade coming from Potosí. Testament to this is the Glorieta Castle. Sucre's University (Universidad Real & Pontifice de San Francisco Xavier de Chuquisaca) is one of the oldest universities in the new world. Until the 19th century, La Plata was the judicial, religious and cultural centre of the region. In 1839, after the city became the capital of Bolivia, it was renamed in honour of the revolutionary leader Antonio José de Sucre. Too remote after the economic decline of Potosí and its silver industry, it saw the Bolivian seat of government move to La Paz in 1898. Many argue Sucre was the epicenter that initiated the independence campaign against Spain in all of Latin America. The first "Grito Libertario" (Shout for Freedom) in any Western Hemisphere Spanish colony of took place in Sucre in 1809. Ironically, Bolivia was the last territory to gain its independence in 1825. In 1991, Sucre became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city attracts thousands of tourists every year thanks to its well-conserved downtown with buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Nestled at the foot of the twin hills of Churuquella and Sika Sika, Sucre is the gateway to numerous small villages that date from the colonial era, the most well-known of which is Tarabuco, home of the colorful "Pujllay" festival held each March. Most of these villagers are members of one of the indigenous ethnicities. Many dress in clothing distinctive to their respective villages.

Here's a news clip from 1987. At this point, it had been over 15-years of community struggle to "Get The Lead Out" of young children's blood (caused by emissions from the Canada Metal Co., a lead smelter on Eastern Ave. in Toronto). Drawing attention to the problem included dumping soil at the hazardous waste depot. The struggle became "Getting The Lead Out" as each problem was successfully resolved. The community fought for on going blood testing, air monitoring, pollution control, removal of toxic soil, and reduction of toxic house dust. The lead industry sued the media, (including the CBC and individual journalists), hospital and medical professionals and some community members. Still the community persisted. Clean-up occurred on 1000 South Riverdale residential properties and three schools. The level of lead in children's blood dropped. It was nearly another thirty years until the source of the problem moved. A few times after the clean-up, Canada Metal exceeded the acceptable air quality level. The lead industry contributed nothing towards the $11 million clean-up and continued to operate owing the city years of back taxes. Today, a business related to the film industry owns the land and is a much welcomed neighbor.

Kazakhstan and Turkey intend to increase trade turnover to $10 billion. This was announced at a Kazakh-Turkish business forum in Astana. Representatives of more than 200 companies from the two countries took part in the forum. The sides discussed the ways of further developing trade and economic relations. In particular, Turkish companies expressed interest in cooperation in such spheres as construction, energy, textile, mining, agriculture, and banking. Kazakh vice Minister for Investments and Development Yerlan Khairov noted, Kazakhstan has created all necessary investment conditions. Eight investment projects worth about $40 million are being implemented in the Kazakh-Turkish industrial zone in the South Kazakhstan region.

Dumping grounds are the home for the large population of pooor homeless children. A street child in India is a child in India "for whom the street has become his or her habitual abode and/or source of livelihood; and who is inadequately protected, supervised, or directed by responsible adults". It is estimated that more than 400,000 street children in India exist. Mainly because of family conflict, they come to live on the streets and take on the full responsibilities of caring for themselves, including working to provide for and protecting themselves. Though street children do sometimes band together for greater security, they are often exploited by employers and the police. Their many vulnerabilities require specific legislation and attention from the government and other organisations to improve their condition. There is currently no official statistic of the number of street children in India. The primary reason for this is that it is difficult to obtain accurate data about them because of their floating character. Street children usually have no proof of identification and move often. Of the 50,000 people in India that are officially reported as leaving home annually, 45 percent are under 16; this number, though, is likely very low. Various studies have formulated estimates of certain cities. In the late 1980s, for instance, it was estimated that there were at least 100,000 street children in both Kolkata and Bombay. Overall, estimates for the total number of street children in India range from 400,000-800,000.The street children in India choose to leave their families and homes for strategic reasons. Three hypotheses have been put forth in an attempt to explain their choices: urban poverty, aberrant families, and urbanization. Evidence can to some degree support all three of these hypotheses. In one study of 1,000 street children living in Bombay conducted in 1990, 39.1 percent of street children said they left home because of problems and fights with family, 20.9 percent said they left because of family poverty, and 3.6 percent said that they wanted to see the city. Because of the low pay from employers, street children in India often choose to be self-employed or work multiple jobs. In fact, the majority of them are self-employed. One of the most common economic activities done by the children is scavenging for recyclable materials, such as plastic, paper, and metal. Other jobs include cleaning cars; petty vending, selling small items such as balloons or sweets; selling newspapers or flowers; begging; shining shoes; working in small hotels; working on construction sites; and working in roadside stalls or repair shops.Street children, especially the older children, are also sometimes engaged in activities such as stealing, pick-pocketing, drug-peddling, and prostitution, though this is a small proportion. Most of the street children work 8--10 hours total each day in their various economic activities. source - Wikipedia This footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of HD imagery from South Asia.
