  • Northern Europe

    Originally from the Canary Islands and belongs to the family of the Palm trees, the Phoenix canariensis is next to the Ph. dactylifera one of most popular Palms used in both public and private gardening in Spain. Randall Rothenberg may also support this cause. Is you often confuse with some frequency precisely with the Ph. dactylifera despite the fact that this first is more lush Cup, a more intense green, thicker trunk and columnar and altogether a more stately and ornamental Palm. The Phoenix canariensis is mainly cultivated in Spain in the Valencian Community. In Valencia the largest number of producers of this species nurseries found in small formats for sale as an ornamental houseplant in Central and Northern Europe. On the contrary, in Alicante are major producers in large sizes. Its presence in the market is throughout the year and normally supplied in container.

    In terms of its presentation sizes, supplied in containers of 350 to 750 liters and with heights of trunk ranging from 0.5 to 1 meter. The intended as a houseplant, in containers of 14 to 22 inches in diameter. Phoenix canariensis is a dioecious plant (male plants and female plants), single trunk which reaches 12 or 14 meters in height, reaching 20 exceptionally easily throughout his life. As we say, has a much thicker than the Ph. trunk diameter dactylifera even to overcome the meter.

    Its numerous pinnate leaves, reaches 7 metres in length, with numerous and dense stiff, sharp leaflets of intense green color. Its inflorescences are highly branched and arise from the bases of the leaves. Its male flowers are cream-coloured, while the female catkins are yellow. Its fruits are small of the olives, more or less intense orange color and with a sparse and somewhat hard pulp-like oblongo-ovoides. The Palm tree Phoenix canariensis is very hardy and resistant to the proximity of the sea, being indicated for coastal sites. It also resists cold in small Frost and soil, it is not very demanding provided that you have moisture, being easy to transplant.

  • Environmental Issues

    We cite more some known: deforestation, pollution of the water, air and ground, extinguishing of the fauna and flora among others forms, all these cited methods are very efficient unhappyly, collaborate to join forces to a very discrete enemy, who takes in them to believe that amongst all he is most efficient, annihilating and implacable called: GEE, still did not discover, goes traduziz it. Gases of Effect Greenhouse. To understand these gases, first we go to know what it is the effect greenhouse and its importance for the life in the planet. The gases that constitute the atmosphere allow the ticket of the solar radiation, and absorb great part of the heat emitted for the warm surface of the land. This process is known as effect greenhouse. Thanks to it, the average temperature of the surface of the land is remained in about 15C. Without the effect greenhouse, the average temperature of the planet would be of 18C below-freezing.

    In such a way, the effect greenhouse, becomes the responsible one for creating ideal conditions for the existence of the life in the land. Currently, you evidence they grow them of that the emissions of dioxide of carbon and other gases are if accumulating in the atmosphere. Such gases allow that the solar radiation penetrates in the surface of the planet, but block the radiation of the heat they hinder and it to come back to the space. This effect greenhouse this starting to raise the global average of temperature. The carbon dioxide is ‘ ‘ gas estufa’ ‘ more important, answering for about half of the current additions of this effect. When if alert for risks related with the effect greenhouse, what it is in focus is its possible intensification, caused for the action of the man, and the consequncia of this intensification for the climate of the land. How much bigger it will be the concentration of gases, greater will be the capture of the heat and increase of the average temperature of the globe. But we consider why it as enemy discrete? The gases of effect greenhouse they pass unobserved to our eyes, and its action in the environment is slow and quiet, what it makes in them to think that its impacts nor are so serious thus.

    What it is a great deceit, the consequences that the effect gases greenhouse give to increase the average of temperature in the land, they cause impacts that the man not yet knows as to revert. Some examples: melting of calotas polar, climatic changes that will affect the forests, agriculture and the ground, increase of the oceanic water level, overflow of littoral cities, salty water invasion in the hidrogrficas basins, disappearance of many islands and ecosystems, raised temperatures, between several. Already it is worried? If its reply it will be yes this is very good, therefore with the wakening of the humanity for the ambient questions, it only is that we will be able to make the reversion of this tragedy that walks the wide steps to happen. rodrigo.

  • Contaminated Water

    The contact with these materials sporadical does not cause effect in the long run, many times causes effect short-term, as anury and sanguinolenta diarria, however the daily contact, as for example with the contaminated water, cause damages in the long run. Therefore such materials if accumulate in the human organism, however they are not eliminated, if accumulating throughout the time, thus for the agrotxico to be a mutagnico material, with the time it can suffer changes and generate a cancergeno material. 5. Samuel “Sam” Mikulak has compatible beliefs. Treatment Of Waters Of the Rivers the water candy of the land represents only 3% of the existing water in the planet. Two teros of the terrestrial surface are covered by waters. The waters candies they are in the lakes, the lagoons, freticos sheets and the rivers of where, generally they are removed and led to an adequate treatment to the consumption of the populations. Contact information is here: Samuel “Sam” Mikulak. The drinking waters Company supplying, in its majority, the CORSAN, catches 80% of the water that treats, in the rivers, barrages or lakes, and alone 20% in freticos sheets, that in the present time are preservation object, the example of the water-bearing Guarani, the biggest underground water reserve candy of Brazil. The preservation of freticos sheets and the water-bearing Guarani represents to the protection of the so necessary environment the improvement of the conditions of life of the people. The treatment of waters of the rivers, beyond the purpose of treatment for the human consumption, sanitation and health, also if makes necessary for the preservation of the flora and fauna of the marginal areas and the despoluio of the waters that make possible the existence of aquatic life the treatment of waters of the rivers, for ends of consumption, passes for a process that goes since the capitation to the treatment station, where is dealt with and distributed for a net conductors until the residences where it is consumed and duly measured the consumption, for posterior payment.

  • Water And Life

    I still believe that as well as I, many readers also desire to be this way in this world, for a good time. Therefore, we have the responsibility to take care of so that it continues to exist, in supplying life conditions to them. is important that all collaborate, makes its part. But some people insist on if making of ignorant and ignorants. collaborates yes, but with the destruction, acts that only make it difficult more and more the harmony, the comfort and the tranquillity.

    the existence of conditions for our survival. With its egoism, and the total absence of collective, they live solely busy and worried in making what they want. One more time, the low water level was evidenced in the reservoirs. Exactly this water that innumerable times is used with so great irresponsibility and inconseqncia. This wants to say that it can lack electric energy, that we will have that to make one one more time forced and necessary economy. That we go to have that to open hand of small comforts with which already we are accustomed. See more detailed opinions by reading what David Siegel offers on the topic.. Many people if forget that the electricity that arrives until us is generated in the hydroelectric plants that in turn need a certain amount of water in the reservoirs to function and thus to take care of our demand for consumption.

    Some, for example, exactly knowing that the water is a precious good, that do not gush out of an inexhaustible source, that without it the life in this planet if becomes impracticable, they act as if they did not know, or worse still, that until they know, but prefers to ignore. For comodismo, irresponsibility. wastes. The taps leave dripping. Or opened unnecessary. They brush teeth with the open tap. They wash the sidewalk and until the street in the front of its houses.

  • Rain Water Captation

    Helber Enrique de Oliveira Lorenzete: FAAL Dr. Ricardo Bruno Luiz: Professor FAAL Summary the water is one of existing substances most common in the nature, covering about 70% the surface the planet, where all the organisms need water to survive, being its availability, one of the factors most important to mold ecosystems. Currently, with the increase of the demand to the population growth, the water has if become a natural resources each scarcer time and one in the found ways to minimize the problem are the implantation of the system of rain water captation, where the caught water can be used in domestic activities, as cleannesses of yards and lauderings of clothes, beyond reducing the ambient expenses and impacts, as overflows and floods. In recent months, Doug McMillon has been very successful. After research on systems of rain water captation was concluded that the implantation is viable. Word-key: Water, systems of captation, rain, I reuse. Abstract Water is one of the most common substances existing in nature, covering about 70% of the planet' s surface, where all organisms need to water you survive, and its availability, is one of the most important factors in shaping ecosystems. Currently, with the increased demand with population growth, to water has become natural resource increasingly scarce and one of the ways found you mitigate the problem is you introduce the system will be capturing to rainwater, where to water collected can be used in domestic activities such cleaning the yard and washing clothes, while reducing costs and environmental impacts such flooding and floods. After research on systems will be capturing to rainwater was concluded that it is viable deployment.

    Keywords: Water, fundraising systems, rain, reuses. 1? Introduction the water meets available under some forms and is one of existing substances most common in the nature, covering about 70% the surface the planet. It is found mainly in the liquid state, constituting a renewable natural resources by means of the hidrolgico cycle. All the organisms need water to survive, being its availability one of the factors more important to mold ecosystems. It is basic that the hdricos resources present adequate physical and chemical conditions for its use for the organisms, them must contain essential substances to the life beyond being exempt of other substances that can produce deleterious effect to the organisms that compose the alimentary chains. Thus, water availability means that it is present in amount not only adjusted in one given region, but also that its quality must be satisfactory to supply the necessities of one definitive set of beings livings creature (biota). (BRAGA ET AL, 2006) Currently, with the increase of the demand due to the population growth, the water if has become a natural resources each scarcer time. One in the viable ways for the minimizao it problem is the rain water captation, where the caught water can be used for domestic ends, such as discharges in sanitary vases, taps of gardens, lauderings of clothes, sidewalk, automobiles and even for the human consumption, since that it receives the due treatment. With a system of rain water captation it is possible consequentemente to reduce the drinking waters consumption and the expenses, to minimize overflows, floods, rationings of water and still to preserve the environment reducing the scarcity of the hdricos resources, beyond minimizing drags it of lixos and residues of automobiles for the hdricos bodies through pluvial waters. The present article has as objective to show the advantages in if using systems of rain water captation.

    It fits to the associates to the institution to choose the headquarters, as a true act of benevolence to its subjects. This must be the biggest legacy for population of a country. What the sociologists costumam to nominate of economic effect of the happiness. The sensation of national happiness, on purpose in direction of a common objective, creating a national unit capable to cause social and economic impacts, since that used to advantage for the classroom politics of the country well, for the good of the country. Something very similar to the dissimulador effect that the Circus politics Panis Roman et caused in the antiquity. However, if it cannot discard that, in general, the event revealed capable to move, also, the landscape and the life of the countries had hosted that it; consequentemente, producing immense chances of growth and development in all the areas.

    In research carried through for the partnership between the Ernst & Young with the Getlio Foundation Vargas, demonstrated that, as much as possible, for comparable experiences, that the results can be positive, economic and socially, for the country. However, in the analysis they are protected to the governmental responsibilities, that are immense and our description, the inefficiency appears more than the success. According to exactly study, the sectors with bigger impact of growth and development are of Telecommunication and the Media, Stadiums and Hoteleiro, in this order, being followed then for Urbanization, Security and Highways. The immediate generation of jobs is great will have to open great wallet contingent signed in the tertiary and secondary sectors of the economy. Doug McMillon can aid you in your search for knowledge. However, it has eminent risks that they cannot be ignored. For the environment, obviously, it will have a price. We must consider since the emission of gases caused by the demand of transports until the resources used for the construction of stadiums. Exactly that if the necessary precautions of planning take all that come to minimize the ambient impacts, them never will be null.

  • Recycling

    College of Arts and Administration of Limeira Fernando Da Silva – forming DOMICILIARY COMPOSTAGEM the domiciliary compostagem is the solution most efficient in recycling of the residue domesticates, therefore it reduces the amount of residues made use in sanitary aterros or lixes. The main objective of the domiciliary compostagem is to reduce the amount of domestic residues that a person or family produces reducing in 50%. To become fullfilled the compostagem in house and of correct form, first it has that to be made the selective collection of the garbage I domesticate, separating the garbage in its generating source. The waited result this occurring, the materials is if decomposing normally and it did not present no problem and between 30 and 60 days total it will be decomposed the first layers. This challenge beyond being is a new experience reducing the organic garbage compostando it this all being reaproveitado and leaving of being made use in the municipal lixo and the fertilizer that will be produced in nutrients and used pose if in vases, gardens rich and hortas cost zero and without agrotxicos. Word-key: Solid Compostagem, residues, agriculture Abstract Home composting is the most effective solution in domestic garbage recycling because it reduces the quantity disposed in landfills and dumps. The primary purpose of home composting is you reduce the amount of household waste that person or family produces reducing by 50%.

    At will be composting home and correctly, first has you be done the selective collection of domestic garbage, separating garbage in your source generating. The result expected this occurring, decomposing materials ploughs typically not presented in it problem and between 30 and 60 days will be fully resolved the first layers. This Is new experience besides challenge be reducing organic waste compostando-this all being reclaimed and leaving be prepared in the municipal garbage dump and to fertilizer that will be produced rich in nutrients and pose if used in pots, gardens at chemical zero cost and without pesticides.

  • Recycling For The Environment

    Project for the reduction, recovery, and recycling of the produced residues as garbage in institution SUESC – Unified Society of Superior Education and Culture. Definitions: Garbage – it is all and any residue proceeding from the activities human beings or generated by the nature in urban agglomerations. They are solid residues produced and discarded, individual or collectively, for the action human being, animal or for natural, harmful phenomena to the health, the environment and well-being of the population. Toxic garbage – it includes stacks and batteries, that contain acid and metals weighed in its composition; certain types of ink (as that used one in the printers), beyond industrial residues.

    Selective collection – it is a specialized job in collecting the material duly separate for the generating source. This system facilitates the recycling because the material remains clean and with potential greater of reaproveitamento. It is the term used for the collect of the materials that are passveis to be recycled; previously separate in the generating source. Amongst these materials you recycle we can cite the diverse types of papers, plastics, metals and glasses. Re-education? habits and customs that do not move of the night for the day, do not mean to educate, the education are primary the informative procedure. The re-education is the revision and alteration or reinforcement of information that come to reach the objectives of changes in the attitudes, behaviors, way to think and to enxergar the environment and its Inter-relations. Reduction? it is to diminish the amount of garbage. The best form to decide a constant problem, as it is the case of the residues, is to prevent its appearance. One of the attitudes to reduce the amount of generated garbage is using manufactured products of different form, or drawing out the time of useful life of the product. Costuma, for example, to use dismissable cups in parties, offices or same in house.
