It is of upmost importance to remove trash off the Trail as these can easily get into our waterways and into the ocean and cause thousands of tragedies for the wildlife we seek to protect”

— Tanja Cranton, ED of TWTH Association of Tampa Bay

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, January 31, 2019 / — On January 25, 2019 a team of twenty students and teachers joined with The Way to Happiness and removed 21 lbs. of trash on The Way to Happiness (TWTH) Adopted-Mile of the Pinellas Trail. The cleanup took place in partnership with Keep Pinellas Beautiful, a local environmental and awareness organization.

Approximately 1 million sea birds and about 100,000 marine creatures die each year from plastic entanglement from trash left behind by others.

“It is of upmost importance to remove trash off the Trail as these can easily get into our waterways and into the ocean and cause thousands of tragedies for the wildlife we seek to protect. It is important to educate at the same time as litter removal actions are taken,” said Ms. Tanja Cranton, Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay.

A group of 20 students and teachers from a local school made this their project on a brisk Friday afternoon to rid the Trail of these seemingly harmless but highly dangerous to the wildlife plastics. Before hitting the Trail, students and volunteers were educated on the precept from The Way to Happiness, “Safeguard and Improve the Environment” written by Mr. Hubbard to educates them on the importance of taking care of the planet and the environment as it is our home.

The Way to Happiness is sponsored by the Church of Scientology as one of its many Humanitarian outreach organizations, providing education as well a community center. With that it is possible to continue to fight the ongoing littering problems and educate at the same time curtailing the problem from continuing and safeguarding and protecting the environment.

The Way to Happiness Community Center on 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755 opens its doors daily from 10am – 10pm to offer free tours, workshops, seminars and educational materials to the community. Community members are invited to join in, please call: (727) 467 6961.

Senecio Robotics shipped its revolutionary BioMosquito™ robot to an international partner

Senecio Compact BioMosquito module based on deep learning technology, with mosquitoes being entered on the right side, with automated loading of male-only (none biting) mosquitoes on the left side into release boxes, after classification and sorting

Senecio ceremony for shipping its BioMosquito machine

Loading station loading measured number of mosquitoes per each release box mounted at the loading position

Senecio Robotics BioMosquito™ based artificial intelligence robot will support global efforts to combat mosquito diseases

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, ISRAEL, January 31, 2019 / — Tel-Aviv, Israel, January 31, 2019, Senecio is pleased to announce that a positive patent examination for its mosquito robotic solution, has been received, making Senecio the sole company with a positive examination for a mosquito robotic sex sorting.

The female mosquito is the deadliest animal on planet and transmits diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Yellow fever, West Nile, Zika, etc. with a death toll of hundreds of thousands per year and hospitalizing millions.

In the fight against mosquitoes, the latest technology is the rearing and release of specially treated mosquitoes. Global players include companies like Google sister company, Verily Life Science, Intrexon subsidiary Oxitec, World Mosquito Program, MosquiotMate, Wolbaki, Forrest Innovations and others.

Some approaches, are based on the fact the female mosquito mates only once, hence, the release of large number of sterile male-only mosquitoes (which are non-biting), leads to local population suppression, while other approaches suggest releasing of special treated males and females which prevent diseases transmission. In collaboration with the unnamed partner, Senecio is working to significantly advance the speed, scale and cost of addressing these needs.

Promising results were obtained in trial size programs around the world, including USA, China, Singapore, Australia, Brazil and others.
However, when the solution needs to be applied in large scale, the mosquito factories are limited in their growth potential relying on tedious labor work for the sorting and packaging of the special mosquitoes.

Senecio has been developing a proprietary technology, providing mosquito factories, laboratories and governments with an affordable, compact solution for robotic handling, sorting and loading of mosquitoes in large scale.
The solution can also be combined with the traditional pesticides approach, for an integrated pest management approach, resulting in an effective solution to the mosquito problem.

The company deep learning technology for automating the production process of mosquitoes is integrated with the company special release systems, with granted patents including the sequential release of cartridges from a moving van or a flying vehicle. Special aerial systems were developed and successfully tested in the US with the support of the BIRD foundation (An Israel-USA bilateral program). Senecio was the first company in the world to safely release mosquitoes while flying at high speed.

Senecio Robotics, is an early stage technology company, developing automation solutions for large scale mosquito projects. It is the holder of dozens of inventions from rearing, through sex sorting to loading, air and ground field release, utilizing proprietary proven technologies.

Backed by Ocean Azul Partners from Miami, with a global vision to support world efforts for eradicating the number one killer, Senecio is working to provide mosquito factories with a complete mobile automated unit, providing an affordable solution for one of the worlds most pressing needs.

7.8 Million UK Households Setting Their Heating Too High (Or Low), Study Finds

UK heating survey from Heating Force

UK heating survey from Heating Force

BIRMINGHAM, WEST MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, January 31, 2019 / — With freezing temperatures and snow sweeping across the United Kingdom, a new survey from central heating advice website Heating Force reveals that millions of UK households are setting their heating too high or low. And hundreds of thousands may even be risking their health.

Heating Force polled 1,256 UK householders in December 2018 to find out which temperature they set their central heating.

According to the study, 71.39% of householders set their thermostat within the recommended range of 18-21 degrees. But the study also reveals that 9.54% set their thermostat below the suggested range, while 19.08% set their heating to 22 degrees or above.

In raw numbers, this means that 7.8 million UK households could be setting their heating outwith the recommended range.

And according to Heating Force founder Grant Draper, almost 1 in 10 UK householders may be risking their health by setting their heating dangerously high or low, “There is evidence that a room temperature below 17 degrees can lead to respiratory problems. And on the flip side when the needle jumps above 24 degrees, there could be cardiovascular risks. Our study found that 1 in 10 householders are setting their heating dangerously high or low, and may be damaging their health.”

The Energy Saving Trust — a British organization devoted to promoting energy efficiency, energy conservation, and the sustainable use of energy — recommend homeowners set their thermostat to the lowest comfortable temperature, typically between 18 and 21 degrees. And according to the Trust, turning down the thermostat by just one degree could save the average 3 bedroom home £75 per year in heating costs.

Draper comments, “The 1.23% (or 335,000) of UK householders who set their central heating at a sweltering 27 degrees could save £450 per year by turning down to 21 degrees, and £675 by dropping the mercury down to 18. That’s a huge saving. Their bank balance, and their health, will thank them for it.”

Heating Force’s study, which also breaks down the average central heating temperature by region, found that homeowners in Northern Ireland set their central heating the highest at 21.27 degrees, while Welsh households preferred a cooler 19.61 degrees.

Based on the Energy Saving Trust’s estimates, this means that families in Northern Ireland could be paying £124.50 more in annual heating costs than their Welsh neighbours.

Finally, with snow forecast for much of the UK this week, and the cold snap expected to last into February, Draper cautions UK families to go easy on their boiler, “When the temperature drops it can be tempting to whack your heating all the way up. But all you’re doing is burning energy unnecessarily and wasting money. You can’t ‘trick’ your boiler, it’s either on or off. Setting your thermostat to a comfortable 19 or 20 degrees will keep you warm and save you cash.”

Full details of the study can be found on Heating Force’s website.

Ditch The Can. Help The Planet.

TetraPak Cartons Vs Cans: The 5 Simple Truths

"The can was invented over 200 years ago, before the invention of the bra or the ballpoint pen! It has served us well, but it’s time we move to an environmentally friendly alternative".”

— Guy Blaksey, Founder of Pooch & Mutt

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 30, 2019 / — The environment is the hot topic on everyone’s lips at the moment, and rightly so. For far too long big businesses have put profits ahead of the planet and we are all becoming increasingly aware of how unsustainable a lot of the products that we consume are. We’ve seen this hit the headlines with shoppers turning their back on big brands with unsustainable packaging including Walkers and Pringles.

Big businesses need to defend their position. They can do this by improving their offering, or by trying to silence those who challenge them. The latest effort to silence a brand comes from the MPMA (Metal Packaging Manufacturer’s Association), who are threatening the independent, ethical dog food brand, Pooch & Mutt.

Pooch & Mutt’s advert urges people to “Ditch the Can. Help the Planet”, as the TetraPak cartons that they use for their dog food have been proven in independent studies, such as the study by the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU) to have 80% less global warming potential than cans.

The benefits are so great that the number of cartons sold in the first 6 months of launch, had the equivalent benefit to the environment of planting 200 trees! And this is from a company, who is a minnow in the pet world compared to the whales of Mars (Pedigree, Royal Canin, James Wellbeloved) and Nestle (Purina, Winalot,

The carton’s lower global warming potential comes down to 5 simple truths:
1. Raw materials: Cartons are primarily made from a renewable resource
2. Production: Energy used in production
3. Transport when empty: 1 lorry of empty cartons is the equivalent of 9 lorries of cans
4. Space when full: Cartons offer a 40% space saving Vs cans.
5. Weight: Cans are 3x heavier than cartons

Guy Blaskey, the founder of Pooch & Mutt says “The latest campaign for our wet food cartons urges customers to ‘Ditch the Can. Help the Planet’, as they are proven to have 80% less global warming potential than cans. It’s disappointing to get threats from MPMA. The can was invented over 200 years ago, before the invention of the bra or the ballpoint pen! It has served us well, but it’s time we move to an environmentally friendly alternative. The MPMA claim the environmental benefits of cans by quoting recycling rates, but that is a very tiny portion of the life cycle of a can and it’s associated emissions. It is true that recycling rates are lower for cartons, but 92% of UK local authorities offer carton recycling, we just need to get people to know this. When a customer is standing in front of a supermarket shelf, armed with the facts, there is no argument that if they want to do the best for the environment they should ‘Ditch the Can’ and pick up a carton.’

A cultural dialogue in the MAMAG Modern Art Museum

With exhibition "Global contemporary art" MAMAG Modern Art Museum opens the cultural dialogue

BLINDENMARKT, AUSTRIA, January 26, 2019 / — Austria / Castle Hubertendorf
The MAMAG Modern Art Museum in Castle Hubertendorf invites art lovers to the vernissage on 20 February 2019 at 7 pm. The exhibition "Global Contemporary Art" provides visitors with an insight into the global art world. You can see works of art by artists from Canada, India, Dubai, Sweden, Switzerland, USA and Austria.

"We are trying to create a cultural dialogue with this exhibition. The world is changing, we are very often talking about the change and influence of artificial intelligence on our world and society, and it is also important to know how global cultural perception and how art is changing. How do artists from different countries and cultures see the modern world, and how does this affect our society in the future? These are also the questions that we want to raise in our exhibitions" – says Heinz Playner, curator of the MAMAG Modern Art Museum.

The artist Lisa Levasseur from Canada shows how she deals with recycling. For the creation of her artwork she uses plastic bottles. What comes out of it, one can only admire. The plastic bottles are changed, fixed on the canvas and painted over. On the one hand, the artist creates an aesthetic work of art, and on the other, she reminds everyone of the important role of a clean environment.

Olga Kreida from Sweden experiments in her artworks with water and the change of colors in different seasons, different weather and time of day. Her perception of the movements, of the colors, of the sky shows us how a contemporary artist feels today and how she transmits these feelings to the canvas.

The exhibition also includes works of art by the artist Michael Gleizer from New York / USA.
The artist shows a poetic mood in his works of art. His style is reminiscent of Renoir, Monet and Chagall. In the artworks, he often shows sentimental scenes from life, but also a theatrical representation. Michael Gleizer also creates costumes for the theater. The love for the theater can be felt in his works how skillfully he translates position, movement and emotions with colors in the artwork. He is also an example that in the modern art world a classical representation of the work of art must not be missing.

The Pop Art artist Tanja Playner, who lives in Austria, enables a dialogue with the viewer. The exhibition shows artworks in which the artist shows the influence of social media on human behavior, feelings, as well as on art.

Art lovers are invited to the Vernissage on 20 February at 19 clock in MAMAG Modern Art Museum in Hubertendorf Castle. Some artists of the exhibition will be present for a personal exchange.
The exhibition can be visited from 21 February to 10 September 2019 by appointment. Tel +43 (0) 664 2142 885
