The food waste problem and the offending culprits

Food is essential to our survival. With food prices on the rise, roughly two out of five Canadians have altered their behaviour when shopping for groceries, all in an effort to save money. While it costs more to feed our families, it may also cause us to reflect on how much food we waste.

According to the United Nation’s Environment Programme (UNEP) Food Waste Index Report 2021, it is estimated that on a global level, food waste totals 931 million tonnes (Mt) annually. (more…)

Terra do bacalhau

(Revista Amar / Manuela Marujo) A Terra Nova e Labrador, província atlântica do Canadá, ocuparam um enorme papel no meu imaginário infantil e, tenho a certeza, no de muitas gerações de portugueses – era a terra do bacalhau. É provável que as primeiras imagens que eu tenha visto do Canadá fossem do porto de St. John’s onde a tripulação da “frota branca” desembarcava tendo icebergues como pano de fundo… Read More in Revista Amar >>>

TORONTO – Nung Mayo nitong taon na ito, maraming mga manok at mga isda ang nangamatay sa Dagupan, Philippines, dahil sa tinding init na umabot sa 52 Celsius. Nitong tag araw sa Canada, ang baryong Lytton sa BC, ay uminit nang matindi na umabot ng 49.4 Celsius, tapos nasunog  ito sa sumunod na araw. Nung 2018, dalawang kamaganak ko ang bumiyahe sa San Francisco para makipagkita sa mga pinsan na dumadalaw galing sa Pilipinas. Nang pababa na ang eroplano nila, kitang kita nila ang mga sunog sa California. Paglabas nila sa hantungan, puro usok ang naamoy nila at nangailangan silang magsuot ng maskara. Nung huling araw nila sa SFO, yung mga cable cars na likas na San Franciscan ay hindi pinahintulutan na umandar dahil sa alikabok at mababang aninag sa dadaanan ng mga ito.  (more…)

Code Red for Humanity

TORONTO – May 12th of this year saw chickens and fishes dying from the heat in Dagupan City, Philippines. The temperature that day registered at 52 Celsius. Early this summer, Lytton, BC, registered a record high of 49.4 C. The following day, wildfire devastated the village. In 2018, two relatives travelled to San Francisco early November to meet up with their cousins who were touring the US. While their plane descended for landing, they could see wildfires from the plane window. When they stepped out of the terminal, smoke was in the air. They had to wear masks. This, in SFO, in November. On their last full day in that city, the cable cars, which give SFO its character, stopped running for the day. The streets of San Francisco were covered in dust and visibility was so low, operating a cable car became risky, given that this is done manually. (more…)

“Log To Green”, un premio alla poetessa Agata De Nuccio alla Mostra del Cinema di Venezia

VENEZIA – La sua poesia ha fatto il giro del mondo quando il  mondo era “chiuso”, in lockdown, e neanche con le persone vicine si poteva parlare, se non con gli occhi. Poi, ha superato i confini del tempo: dallo scorso mese di maggio, giace in una capsula nel giardino della scuola del polo scolastico nel piccolo borgo di Buttapietra, in provincia di Verona (Veneto, Italia),  che verrà dissotterrata e riaperta solo nel 2071, cinquant’anni dopo la pandemia. Per non dimenticare. Adesso “Parliamo con gli occhi”, la poesia di Agata De Nuccio tradotta in tutte le lingue del mondo e diventata, in pochi mesi, una sorta di inno multilingue (dall’Italiano all’Afrikaans, fino alla lingua dei Nativi Canadesi), ha ricevuto un ambìto riconoscimento: un premio speciale nell’ambito del “Log To Green Movie Award 2021”, che verrà consegnato dalla poetessa italiana nel corso della 78esima Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematogrfica di Venezia. L’appuntamento è per sabato 11 settembre, alle ore 13, al Lido di Venezia. (more…)

Wiele osób, które cierpią na alergię zapewne zauważyło w tym roku zwiększone jej objawy w porównaniu do ubiegłego. Okazuje się, że doprowadził do tego wyższy niż normalnie poziom pyłków w powietrzu w niektórych częściach Kanady.

Viele Allergiker haben in diesem Jahr möglicherweise im Vergleich zum Vorjahr erhöhte Symptome festgestellt. Es stellt sich heraus, dass es in einigen Teilen Kanadas durch überdurchschnittlich hohe Pollenwerte in der Luft verursacht wurde.

Higher-than-usual pollen counts in the air are causing more allergies this year in Canada

Many allergy sufferers may have noticed increased symptoms this year compared to last year. It turns out that it was caused by higher-than-normal pollen levels in the air in some parts of Canada.

A particularly strong pollen explosion occurred in southern Ontario and Quebec. There was a thin layer of yellow pollen that covered most of Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. We could see an unusually large amount of pollen on our cars, perhaps the largest since many years. (more…)

Solved the mystery of the provenance of the gray whale Wally: in a video the images of the specimen

The gray whale sighted in the Mediterranean is a “puppy” and was not born in the Atlantic but in the Pacific, from which it moved away, perhaps ending up getting lost. This is the latest hypothesis formulated by the researchers of the Tethys Institute, who, together with the Italian Coast Guard, were able to establish exactly the size of Wally: this is the name of the gray whale that has been moving in Italian waters for two weeks.
