La Conferencia General de la UNESCO votó hoy a favor de la admisión de
Palestina como Estado Miembro de la Organización.
Para que esta decisión entre en vigor, Palestina debe firmar y ratificar la Constitución
de la UNESCO (Artículo XV de la Constitución de la UNESCO), depositada en los
archivos del Gobierno del Reino Unido, en Londres.
El ingreso de Palestina elevará a 195 el número de Estados Miembros de la UNESCO.
La votación se resolvió por 107 votos a favor y 14 votos en contra, con 52 abstenciones.
La admisión en la UNESCO de Estados que no son miembros de Naciones Unidas
requiere una recomendación favorable del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Organización y
un voto con una mayoría de dos tercios de los Estados Miembros de la Conferencia
General presentes y votantes (los miembros que se abstienen de votar se consideran
“no votantes”).
La Conferencia General está formada por representantes de los Estados Miembros de
la Organización. Se reúne cada dos años y a ella acuden Estados Miembros y Miembros Asociados junto con observadores de los Estados no Miembros, organizaciones
intergubernamentales y no gubernamentales (ONG). Cada Estado Miembro tiene un
voto independientemente de su tamaño o de su contribución al presupuesto.
La Conferencia General determina las políticas y las principales líneas de trabajo de la
Organización. Su labor consiste en determinar los programas y fijar el presupuesto de
la UNESCO. También elige a los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo y elige, cada cuatro
años, al Director General.

Donar a la UNESCO en un clic
La Directora General de la UNESCO, Irina Bokova, presentó hoy un mecanismo que permite a todos
los públicos (Estados Miembros, instituciones públicas, fundaciones e individuos) hacer donaciones en
línea en favor de la UNESCO.
Esta herramienta forma parte de las medidas de urgencia anunciadas hoy para compensar la pérdida
inmediata de 65 millones de dólares consecutiva al anuncio de Estados Unidos de suspender sus contribuciones a la Organización.
Las donaciones pueden hacerse en línea en la siguiente dirección: http://www.unesco.org/donate
Estados Unidos suspendió su contribución tras la admisión de Palestina en la UNESCO, el 31 de octubre, como se lo exigen leyes estadounidenses de los años noventa. Los 65 millones de dólares corresponden a la suma que debe Estados Unidos para el año 2011.
El anuncio provocó una oleada de apoyos sin precedentes en favor de la UNESCO por parte de individuos, asociaciones y empresas de todas las regiones del mundo.
“Veo en estas manifestaciones de apoyo un claro reconocimiento del bien que la UNESCO hace en
el mundo. Son pruebas muy concretas de éxito”, declaró la Directora General, que se expresaba en el
marco de la 36ª reunión de la Conferencia General de la UNESCO, que finalizó hoy.
“No se trata simplemente de otro fondo extrapresupuestario, lo utilizaremos para apoyar nuestras actividades fundamentales de modo que no se vean afectadas por la difícil situación financiera”, agregó.

© UNESCO/D. Bijeljac - Sudán del Sur, 194º Estado Miembro de la UNESCO
La República de Sudán del Sur se convierte en el
194º Estado Miembro de la UNESCO
La República de Sudán del Sur se convirtió en el 194º Estado Miembro de la UNESCO tras completar
el proceso de ratificación de la Constitución de la UNESCO en Londres, el pasado 27 de octubre. La
bandera de Sudán del Sur ondea ya junto a las otras 193 enseñas que representan a los países miembros
de la UNESCO.
Con motivo de la ceremonia de izado de bandera en el marco de la 36ª reunión de la Conferencia General, el
ministro de Cultura, Juventud y Deportes de Sudán del Sur, Cirino Hiteng Ofuho, declaró: “Pedimos a los
Estados Miembros de la UNESCO que continúen apoyando nuestros esfuerzos de manera que nuestra joven
nación pueda preparar a sus ciudadanos a ponerse al nivel de los resto del mundo en los ámbitos de gestión del
patrimonio, la educación y la investigación científica”. “La nueva República de Sudán del Sur quiere convertirse en un miembro activo de la UNESCO y de la familia global de naciones”, agregó.
En su discurso de bienvenida al nuevo Estado Miembro, la Directora General de la UNESCO, Irina Bokova,
recordó que “los ocho millones de habitantes de la República de Sudán del Sur se enfrentan a inmensos desafíos”. Irina Bokova aseguró a continuación que “la UNESCO acompañará a la población de Sudán del Sur
para reforzar su sistema educativo y apoyar la formación de docentes y profesionales de la educación”.
Según el Informe de Seguimiento de la Educación para Todos en el Mundo 2011, presentado en Juba en junio
pasado, más de un millón de niños en edad de acudir a la escuela primaria no están escolarizados, es decir,
casi la mitad de los niños. El país presenta además la tasa más baja de escolarización secundaria del mundo y
sólo 8% de las mujeres saben leer y escribir.
A pedido del ministerio de Educación del país, el Instituto Internacional de Planificación de la Educación de la
UNESCO (IIEP) y UNICEF ayudaron al nuevo país a diseñar un plan para cubrir las necesidades educativas.
El 14 de julio de 2011, la Asamblea General de la ONU autorizó por aclamación el ingreso de la República de
Sudán del Sur como Estado Miembro de la Organización.

Mexican archaeologists find Aztec temple platform at Mexico City's Templo Mayor
ruin - Mexico
MEXICO CITY (AP).- Archaeologists found a round Aztec ceremonial platform studded with
stone carvings of serpent heads at Mexico City's Templo Mayor ruin, raising hopes in the
search for an emperor's tomb, authorities said Thursday.
No Aztec ruler's tomb has ever been located and researchers have been on a five-year quest
to find a royal tomb in the area of the Templo Mayor, a complex of two huge pyramids and
numerous smaller structures that contained the ceremonial and spiritual heart of the pre-
Hispanic Aztec empire.
Mexico's National Institute of History and Anthropology said the stone platform is about 15 yards (meters) in diameter and
probably built around A.D. 1469. The site lies in downtown Mexico City, which was built by Spanish conquerors atop the
Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan.
"The historical records say that the rulers were cremated at the foot of the Templo Mayor, and it is believed to be on this
same structure — the 'cuauhxicalco' — that the rulers were cremated," said archaeologist Raul Barrera.

Göbekli Tepe: El templo más antiguo del mundo bajo conservación por el Global
Heritage Fund (GHF)
Tienen ante sí decenas de enormes columnas de piedra dispuestas en una serie de círculos,
apiladas unas encima de otras. El lugar, llamado Göbekli Tepe, recuerda vagamente
Stonehenge, pero es mucho más antiguo y no está hecho de toscos bloques sino de pilares de
piedra caliza finamente tallados y adornados con bajorrelieves de animales: un desfile de
gacelas, serpientes, zorros, escorpiones y feroces jabalíes. El conjunto fue construido hace
unos 11.600 años, siete milenios antes que la Gran Pirámide de Keops, y contiene el templo
más antiguo conocido hasta ahora. De hecho, Göbekli Tepe es el ejemplo más antiguo conocido de arquitectura
monumental, la primera estructura levantada por el ser humano con una envergadura y complejidad mayores que las de
una choza. Hasta donde alcanzan nuestros conocimientos, cuando se erigieron esas columnas no había en el mundo
ninguna otra construcción de tamaño comparable…

The World in Between: 5,000 years ago, a long-buried society in the Iranian desert
helped shape the first urban age
Even local archaeologists with the benefit of airconditioned cars and paved roads think twice
about crossing eastern Iran’s rugged terrain. “It’s a tough place,” says Mehdi Mortazavi from
the University of Sistan-Baluchistan in the far eastern end of Iran, near the Afghan border.
At the center of this region is the Dasht-e Lut, Persian for the “Empty Desert.” This
treacherous landscape, 300 miles long and 200 miles wide, is covered with sinkholes, steep
ravines, and sand dunes, some topping 1,000 feet. It also has the hottest average surface
temperature of any place on Earth. The forbidding territory in and around this desert seems like the last place to seek
clues to the emergence of the first cities and states 5,000 years ago.

Patrimonio arqueológico
Mr. CAPUANO. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to support the designation of October 22, 2011, as
National Archaeology Day. Throughout the month of October, but particularly on the 22nd,
archaeological societies across the country will celebrate the thousands of years of history that
have been unlocked through artifacts and discoveries.
The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA), headquartered at Boston University and
comprised of over 235,000 members, will lead 108 of its local societies in a host of public
educational activities to demonstrate the value of archaeological pursuits. AIA will also join
with the American Anthropological Association, Society for American Archaeology, Society for Historical Archaeology, and
American Schools of Oriental Research in collaborative efforts to reach out to over 100 cities across the United States
through online events.

The Pre-Motor City: As Detroit paves a new economic road forward, an archaeologist
investigates its industrial beginnings - Detroit - Michigan - USA
On a Wednesday afternoon in early June, a white bus with the navy blue logo "Indian Trails"
emblazoned on its side turns off Michigan Avenue onto 16th Street and heads south. At Dalzelle
Street it takes a left and comes to a stop in front of the gutted husk of Michigan Central Station, the
former railway hub for Detroit, once the fourth largest city in the United States. A gaggle of tourists
hops out of the coach and gawks at the 230-foot-tall building, pointing cameras at it and capturing
what has come to be referred to as "ruin porn."

Does the Natural Gas Boom Endanger Archaeology? - Friedenshuetten - Pennsylvania - USA
On the North Branch of Pennsylvania's Susquehanna River, roughly an hour northwest of Scranton, sits
Friedenshuetten. Meaning "tents of peace," the village was an eighteenth-century utopia founded by a
Moravian missionary. There, both expats from what is now the eastern Czech Republic and Native
Americans of the Eastern Delaware Nation coexisted in log cabins and wigwams from 1763 until 1772
when simmering distrust dissolved the settlement.
Archaeologists from Kings College in Wilkes-Barre began excavating the site in 1972, finding pieces of
pipes, flints, and remains of a hearth, among other artifacts. The following year they uncovered the
village's main core.

From the President: Eurozone Catch-22 - Archaeological Institute of America President Elizabeth Bartman
voices concern with archaeologically rich countries experiencing financial woes
For many months this year the sovereign debt crisis in Europe dominated the news. While we readers of ARCHAEOLOGY no
doubt share many of the concerns outlined in leading business publications, we have our own pressing concern: How will
the financial woes of archaeologically rich countries such as Greece and Italy affect their ability to maintain their cultural
patrimony? Reports from the field have not been encouraging.

Australopithecus' Best Foot Forward - Laetoli - United Republic of Tanzania
The 3.6-million-year-old footprints at Laetoli, have fascinated archaeologists since they were discovered in 1976. These
prints preserve, in volcanic ash, that most characteristic of behaviors—the act of walking—among early humans.
Understanding how early humans moved is important because efficient, upright locomotion was one of the first
evolutionary traits that set them apart from other ape species. A team led by Robin Crompton of the University of Liverpool
recently published a study of the Laetoli footprints that used 3-D laser scans to show that whoever left them—perhaps
Australopithecus afarensis—had anatomically modern feet, approximately 2 million years before they were thought to have
evolved.

Mosaics from Where East Met West - Sofia - Bulgaria
Emergency excavation work in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, carried out for just over a year
before the construction of a new metro line, has uncovered a large section of the center of the
ancient Roman city of Ulpia Serdica. The discoveries include streets, a public bath with pools for
cold and heated water, sewage canals, and spacious residences, many of which are decorated
with colorful mosaics. Ulpia Serdica was strategically sited by the Romans in the first century A.
D. halfway between the Roman cities of Singidunum (modern-day Belgrade) and
Constantinople, and thus between Europe and Asia.

Escanear en 3D más barato - University of California - San Diego - California - USA
Un grupo de estudiantes de la Universidad de California, San Diego, utilizará Kinect en excavaciones
arqueológicas llevadas a cabo en Jordania, gracias a un hack de la unidad. El dispositivo será usado a
modo de escáner tridimensional para mapear el terreno y localizar sitios importantes, en lugar del
sistema de uso profesional LIDAR que se despliega habitualmente en estos estudios. El grupo podrá
realizar mapeados 3D de los sitios de excavación, lo que ayudará a guardar de manera precisa los
detalles posicionales de los restos y las zonas calientes de la prospección.
El sistema usado ha sido desarrollado por el Instituto de Telecomunicaciones y ciencias de la
información de California —Calit2— y es capaz de introducirse en el flujo de datos que Kinect produce, que es una mezcla
de información posicional 3D adquirida al proyectar muchos puntos de luz infrarroja sobre objectos, y desde el feed de
video en color de la cámara del dispositivo. Tras absorber esta información, el sistema renderiza una escena completa en
3D que puede ser guardada para su posterior visionado.

Adequacy of Archaeological Site Structure - a3gm - 2007 - Clunia - Burgos - Spain
The interventions are part of the Master Plan developed by the scientific team that leads the
Archaeological Site and focus on two specific elements, the covering of the mosaic of the
“craterae” and the consolidation of the basement of the Temple of Jupiter.
It is also intended to evoke that next to the mosaic room was a garden-room and that these
two rooms were separated from the street by the house walls. A new enclosure, light and
partially opaque, now defines the outer wall of the house and leads the visitor to the
entrance. The material used for both structures and fencing to mark the routes, is laminated
wood treated according to the different levels of exposure. The covering is made with crimping copper plates. The wooden
box, light and permeable, transparent and capable of protecting, lets in natural light and ventilation as required by the
conservation and enhancement of these elements.

Ancient Etruscan childbirth image is first for western art - Mugello Valley Archaeological Project - Italy
An archaeological excavation at Poggio Colla, the site of a 2,700-year-old Etruscan settlement in Italy’s Mugello Valley, has
turned up a surprising and unique find: two images of a woman giving birth to a child.
Researchers from the Mugello Valley Archaeological Project, which oversees the Poggio Colla excavation site some 20 miles
northeast of Florence, discovered the images on a small fragment from a ceramic vessel that is more than 2,600 years old.

Update from Ciudad Perdida Global Heritage Fund Field Mapping Mission (May / June,
2011) - Colombia
In late May and early June of 2011, a GHF team comprised of Santiago Giraldo, Adam Dunbar
and Dan Thompson conducted a field mapping mission to Ciudad Perdida, an ancient Tayrona
archaeological site deep in the jungles of northern Colombia's Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta
mountain range. In preparation for the drafting of a site Master Conservation Plan by the
Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History (ICANH) for this GHF Current Project, the
team set out to map the archaeological sites that surround Ciudad Perdida in the Upper
Buritaca River Valley using precision Ashtech GPS units. Mapping these sites, some of which hadn't been visited since they
were first discovered over 30 years ago, was an essential endeavor in order to set up a long-term, sustainable heritage
management plan for the area. The team worked jointly with the ICANH conservation team at the site, led by Catalina
Bateman, discussing further conservation measures and protection needed for the site. The project is a joint enterprise
with ICANH, which has managed and preserved the site since 1976.

As part of the first National Archaeology Day celebration held on Saturday, October 22,
2011, the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA), in partnership with Google Earth,
unveiled a new Google Earth layer displaying popular archaeological sites located
throughout the United States and Canada. The map includes an image and a brief
description for each site, and links to the featured site’s main website and the AIA website.
To create the map, AIA staff, contacted state archaeologists in all U.S. states and
Canadian provinces, and asked them for lists of the most popular, publicly-accessible
archaeological sites in their region. The response to the request was overwhelming, and the result is the map that we
encourage you to examine and use.
The project was envisioned as a two-stage process. The first stage was the creation of the map and unveiling it on National
Archaeology Day.

Restored citadel, dating back to the days of Alexander the Great, is symbol of hope
in Afghanistan
http://universidadypatrimonio.net/esp/noticias/newsletter_73/01_2011.html (3 de 8) [23/11/2011 17:14:20]
Patrimonio arqueológico
HERAT (AP).- In the 1970s, tourists traveled to western Afghanistan to climb on the ruins of
an ancient citadel, a fortress resembling a sandcastle that has stood overlooking the city of
Herat for thousands of years.
The citadel was crumbling then, but today the newly restored structure, dating back to the
days of Alexander the Great, is a hopeful sign of progress in a country beset by war.
Hundreds of Afghan craftsmen worked to restore the ruins' past glory with help from the Aga
Khan Trust for Culture and about $2.4 million from the U.S. and German governments.
The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, was among the tourists drawn to Herat decades ago, and on Sunday
he celebrated the citadel's restoration and the opening of a new museum of Afghan artifacts at the site.

A 100,000-Year-Old Ochre-Processing Workshop at Blombos Cave - South Africa
The conceptual ability to source, combine, and store substances that enhance technology or social practices represents a
benchmark in the evolution of complex human cognition. Excavations in 2008 at Blombos Cave, South Africa, revealed a
processing workshop where a liquefied ochre-rich mixture was produced and stored in two Haliotis midae (abalone) shells
100,000 years ago. Ochre, bone, charcoal, grindstones, and hammerstones form a composite part of this production
toolkit. The application of the mixture is unknown, but possibilities include decoration and skin protection.

Lowland-upland migration of sauropod dinosaurs during the Late Jurassic epoch
By Henry C. Fricke, Justin Hencecroth & Marie E. Hoerner
Sauropod dinosaurs were the largest vertebrates ever to walk the Earth, and as mega-herbivores they were important
parts of terrestrial ecosystems. In the Late Jurassic-aged Morrison depositional basin of western North America, these
animals occupied lowland river- floodplain settings characterized by a seasonally dry climate. Massive herbivores with high

nutritional and water needs could periodically experience nutritional and water stress under these conditions, and thus the
common occurrence of sauropods in this basin has remained a paradox. Energetic arguments and mammalian analogues
have been used to suggest that migration allowed sauropods access to food and water resources over a wide region or
during times of drought or both, but there has been no direct support for these hypotheses. Here we compare oxygen
isotope ratios (δ18O) of tooth-enamel carbonate from the sauropod Camarasaurus with those of ancient soil, lake and
wetland (that is, ‘authigenic’) carbonates that formed in lowland settings. We demonstrate that certain populations of
these animals did in fact undertake seasonal migrations of several hundred kilometres from lowland to upland
environments. This ability to describe patterns of sauropod movement will help to elucidate the role that migration played
in the ecology and evolution of gigantism of these and associated dinosaurs.

Egypte : le tombeau de Saqqara comme si vous y étiez - Une visite commentée
du site et l'évocation de la vie égyptienne voici 4 500 ans
En 1903, la chapelle décorée du tombeau du dignitaire égyptien Akhethétep était
extraite de son monument d’origine et transportée au Musée du Louvre.
Près d’un siècle plus tard, les fouilles conduites par le Département des antiquités
égyptiennes du Musée du Louvre à Saqqara permettent de mieux connaître ce
monument funéraire.
La superbe visite commentée en ligne propose des images de synthèse de
l’architecture, le panoramique de la chapelle avec son décor sculpté, une traduction interactive des hiéroglyphes,
évocations vivantes et émouvantes de la vie quotidienne des Égyptiens d’il y a 4500 ans.

Découvertes archéologiques en Moravie - République Tchèque
Des scientifiques, parmi lesquels Filip Stehlik, de l'Institut de Géologie de l'Académie des Sciences de République tchèque,
s'intéressent à des troncs d'arbres âgés de plusieurs centaines de milliers d'années enfouis dans les sédiments de la rivière
morave Straznice. Les morceaux de bois et les grains de pollen qu'ils y ont découverts leur ont permis de dresser un
tableau des environs : il y a 7000 ans, la région ressemblait à la toundra sibérienne d'aujourd'hui. Plus tard, la toundra a
été remplacée par une taïga. A la fin de l'âge de glace se sont formés des lacs alpins. La rivière a ensuite subi des
fluctuations climatiques importantes, qui ont fortement influencé son évolution. Au XIIème siècle, on trouvait des chênes
et des pins sur ses rivages, et, au XVIème siècle, on a commencé à pratiquer la viticulture.

Pre-Clovis Mastodon Hunting 13,800 Years Ago at the Manis Site, Washington - Washington State (USA)
By Michael R. Waters, Thomas W. Stafford Jr., H. Gregory McDonald, Carl Gustafson, Morten Rasmussen, Enrico Cappellini,
Jesper V. Olsen, Damian Szklarczyk, Lars Juhl Jensen, M. Thomas P. Gilbert and Eske Willerslev
The tip of a projectile point made of mastodon bone is embedded in a rib of a single disarticulated mastodon at the Manis
site in the state of Washington. Radiocarbon dating and DNA analysis show that the rib is associated with the other
remains and dates to 13,800 years ago. Thus, osseous projectile points, common to the Beringian Upper Paleolithic and
Clovis, were made and used during pre-Clovis times in North America. The Manis site, combined with evidence of
mammoth hunting at sites in Wisconsin, provides evidence that people were hunting proboscideans at least two millennia
before Clovis.

Report of the Committee appointed by the Philomathean Society of the University of
Pennsylvania to translate the inscription on the Rosetta Stone
John Davis Batchelder Collection (Library of Congress); Philomathean Society (University of
Pennsylvania)
[Philadelphia: s.n., 1859]
Includes the hieroglyphic, demotic, and Greek inscriptions, with translations of each text. An amazing
example of early American printing technology, "The Report" was one of the first books printed in
America using the chromolithographic colour printing process. Printed by Philadelphia lithographer Louis
Rosenthal, based on sumptuous designs by Henry Morton, the book is one of very few ever printed in America entirely by
lithography, ie. all text as well as illustration is lithographed rather than letter-pressed. The stones were destroyed after
the first edition of 400 was printed, and entirely new ones were made for the second edition in order to correct pagination
errors. Also of interest, Morton states at the end of the book that the pages were "folded into their present form, not by
human hands, as one would suppose they must be, but by the iron fingers of a machine, and that too with a rapidity and
accuracy which defies the most expert human manipulation." Fewer than 30 of these machines, recently invented by Cyrus
Chambers, were in use across the country at the time. Chromolithography, invented in 1796 but not seen in America until
1840, was the first printing process able to mass-produce coloured art. Using a chemical process of grease on limestone,
the image was transferred to paper one colour at a time, sometimes passing through the press up to 25 times to compose
one print. Registration of the image was key, and in good quality images the colours line up perfectly, while in lesser
quality, mass produced items such as the greeting cards and advertisements which were so popular, the uneven
registration is visible around the edges.

Apollo's Island: A first look at a previously unknown Aegean sanctuary - Despotiko - Greece
© 2011 by the Archaeological Institute of America
The islands of the Aegean Sea, and particularly the Cyclades, are known not only for their exceptional
beauty, but also for the richness of their archaeological heritage. Despite its small size, the island of
Despotiko, which the ancient geographer Strabo called Prepesinthos, was well known because it had a
protected harbor that was a safe stop for ships trading between mainland Greece, the Mediterranean, and
North Africa. It also had an important Archaic period (ca. 700–480 B.C.) sanctuary dedicated to the god
Apollo and his sister Artemis.

Adapting to Conquest: The ruins of a sixteenth century Peruvian town reveal a
resilient native culture - Magdalena de Cao Viejo - Peru
The Spanish conquest of Peru remains one of the most dramatic examples, in history, of
civilizations colliding. In just a few years in the early sixteenth century, a few hundred
Spanish soldiers and their local allies toppled an empire of 16 million people covering an area
one-fifth the size of Europe. The result was a fusion of European and indigenous cultures
that, with some later input from Africa and Asia, makes up Peruvian society today…

Systematic blade production at late Lower Paleolithic (400-200 kyr) Qesem Cave, Israel
By Ron Shimelmitza, Ran Barkaia and Avi Gophera
Qesem Cave is assigned to the Acheulo-Yabrudian cultural complex of the late Lower Paleolithic period. The 7.5 m deep
stratigraphic sequence is dated to 400–200 ka (thousands of years ago). It is mostly attributed to the Amudian bladedominated industry, one of the earliest blade production technologies in the world. In this paper, we present the results of
a detailed study of five Amudian assemblages from Qesem Cave and suggest two trajectories for the production of blades
at the site. We argue that the reduction sequences of blades at Qesem Cave represent an innovative and straightforward
technology aimed at the systemic and serial production of predetermined blanks. We suggest that this predetermined
blank technology shows planning and intensity that is not significantly different from Middle Paleolithic Mousterian
technological systems. Furthermore, this well-organized serial manufacture of cutting implements mainly for butchering
might indicates that a significant change in human behavior had taken place by the late Lower Paleolithic period.

A new species of Pachyrhinosaurus from the North Slope - (Prince Creek Formation: Maastrichtian) of Alaska USA
ANTHONY R. FIORILLO and RONALD S. TYKOSKI
The Cretaceous rocks of the Prince Creek Formation contain the richest record of polar dinosaurs found anywhere in the
world. Here we describe a new species of horned dinosaur, Pachyrhinosaurus perotorum that exhibits an apomorphic
character in the frill, as well as a unique combination of other characters. Phylogenetic analysis of 16 taxa of ceratopsians
failed to resolve relationships between P. perotorum and other Pachyrhinosaurus species (P. canadensis and P. lakustai). P.
perotorum shares characters with each of the previously known species that are not present in the other, including very
large nasal and supraorbital bosses that are nearly in contact and separated only by a narrow groove as in P. canadensis,
and a rostral comb formed by the nasals and premaxillae as in P. lakustai. P. perotorum is the youngest centrosaurine
known (70-69 Ma), and the locality that produced the taxon, the Kikak-Tegoseak Quarry, is close to the highest latitude for
recovery of ceratopsid remains.

COMPETITION - Parks for the People: A Student Competition to Reimagine America's National Parks - Deadline
for proposals 1 November 2011
Parks for the People is a design competition that will reimagine America's most spectacular public places — its national
parks — by using design as a catalyst to creatively rethink their connections to people and their role as revered natural,
social, and cultural destinations.
As a culminating project of Designing the Parks — a partnership to promote well-designed public parks in America — Parks
for the People invites student and faculty teams to help build a common foundation of design principles for these
extraordinary sites as the U.S. National Park Service embarks upon a new century of park design.
Participating schools will work with park administrators to create model solutions for seven park sites in each geographic
region of the U.S., and use these design paradigms to create a stronger national identity for our open space ideals.
Throughout the competition, schools will have an opportunity to engage with the Park Service and its rich cultural and
historic assets, including access to park leadership, in-depth encounters with park sites, and the chance to build long-term
relationships with park staff and resources.

Third Prix Pictet commission, a series of over 30 photographs by Chris Jordans,
unveiled
LONDON.- The Commission, a series of over 30 photographs, documents Chris Jordan’s field
trip to Northern Kenya where Pictet & Cie is contributing to the establishment of the
Nakuprat-Gotu Conservancy, a new community-led initiative, supported by the Tusk Trust
and overseen by the Northern Rangelands Trust.
Chris Jordan’s photographs draw attention to the issues that face the politically and socially
marginalised communities in the region: climate change; drought; conflict caused by
competition for scarce resources – livestock, pasture and water; and an increase in pressure from expanding human
populations – exemplifying the theme of this third cycle of the Prix Pictet: “Growth”. Violence between competing
communities in the area, known as “bandit country”, has had a disastrous impact on tourism. The area also suffers from
chronic game-meat and elephant poaching and a visceral group of images documenting the horror of elephant poaching
lies at the heart of the series.
Ushirikiano also illustrates a more hopeful future, with photographs portraying new security provision, water tanks,
biodiversity conservation, schools, women’s enterprise projects and the different tribes, Borana, Turkana and Samburu,
encouraged to live and work alongside each other in a spirit of collaboration. The Nakuprat-Gotu Conservancy aims to
improve human, habitat and wildlife security, and establish income-generating activities including tourism ventures and
livestock marketing, and so create a sustainable model for future economic development.

Descubrimiento de una nueva especie de plantas: Spigelia genuflexa - Brasil
Unos científicos han descubierto en la región de Bahia una nueva especie de planta perteneciente a la familia Loganiaceae
y al género Spigelia: la Spigelia genuflexa. Esta planta ha sido descrita por un grupo de botánicos, y algunos análisis
moleculares en sus fragmentos ITS (regiones altamente polimórficas de ADN ribosómico) han confirmado que se trata de

Un armadillo gigante fotografiado en plena naturaleza - Brasil
Gracias a equipos instalados en un bosque (región del Pantanal), un grupo de científicos ha logrado tomar una foto de un
armadillo gigante extremadamente raro.
El armadillo es un mamífero extraño parecido a animales prehistóricos. El armadillo es fácilmente identificable por su gran
caparazón que lo cubre todo el lomo y sus cuatro miembros que son en gran medida ocultos bajo esta concha. Estos
mamíferos pueden alcanzar 1,5 m de longitud y pesar hasta 50 kilos. Hay 20 especies de armadillos. Activo durante la
noche y solitario, es por tanto difícil de estudiar.

Qui sème des pissenlits récolte... du caoutchouc ! - République Tchèque
A l'Institut de Botanique de l'Académie des Sciences de République tchèque, localisé à Pruhonice, ont fleuri les premiers
spécimens de plusieurs espèces de pissenlits hybrides destinés à donner du caoutchouc. Les scientifiques espèrent que la
nouvelle plante sera à même de remplacer des arbres comme le gommier ou l'hévéa dans la production de ce matériau
naturel.
A l'heure actuelle, un partie très importante de la production mondiale de caoutchouc naturel provient de l'hévéa ou du
gommier, arbres principalement cultivés dans le Sud de l'Asie, en Amérique du Sud, et, dans une moindre mesure, en
Afrique. Les plantations sud-américaines ont subi l'attaque massive d'une maladie fongique, et, même si celles d'Asie du
Sud n'ont pour l'heure pas été touchées, le risque de propagation de l'infection est grand. Par ailleurs, l'exploitation de ces
arbres est en partie remplacée par d'autres cultures nécessaires à la fabrication de biocarburants, alors même que les
économies indienne et chinoise connaissent une augmentation de la demande en caoutchouc. En conséquence, une pénurie
de caoutchouc naturel aurait des conséquences sévères pour l'industrie.

New York State Museum study suggest wolves migrating East - New York - New
York State - USA
KUNZELSAU.- The fascinations of the forest! Hardly another subject in art history can match
the forest for expressive potential and a concomitant multiplicity of meanings. As a favourite
setting for fairy tales, forests formed an essential projection screen during childhood. The
mostly young heroes and heroines went astray there, encountered unusual creatures, were
transformed, enchanted, or gobbled up, only to prevail in the end. The phantasmagorical
ideas of Romantic painters, writers, and composers still move us in the twenty-first century
and have become embedded in our feeling and thinking. Doesn't a stroll in the woods still hold the promise of time to think
and recuperate from humdrum life?
In the course of the nineteenth century, Romantic ideas spread so rapidly and widely that something known as the
"scientific forest aesthetic" emerged. Woods developed from "untamed wilderness" to sites for an enjoyment of nature and
finally into "suburban recreation areas" or even city parks designed to soothe the eye with subtle gradations of green, in
foliage, water, and mosses.

Changes in plant community composition lag behind climate warming in lowland forests
By Romain Bertrand, Jonathan Lenoir, Christian Piedallu, Gabriela Riofrío-Dillon, Patrice de Ruffray, Claude Vidal, JeanClaude Pierrat & Jean-Claude Gégout
Climate change is driving latitudinal and altitudinal shifts in species distribution worldwide, leading to novel species
assemblages. Lags between these biotic responses and contemporary climate changes have been reported for plants and
animals. Theoretically, the magnitude of these lags should be greatest in lowland areas, where the velocity of climate
change is expected to be much greater than that in highland areas. We compared temperature trends to temperatures
reconstructed from plant assemblages (observed in 76,634 surveys) over a 44-year period in France (1965–2008). Here
we report that forest plant communities had responded to 0.54 °C of the effective increase of 1.07 °C in highland areas
(500–2,600 m above sea level), while they had responded to only 0.02 °C of the 1.11 °C warming trend in lowland areas…

all options have been explored.
It should however be noted that , the Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs reserves the right to institute a
moratorium if there is a clear abuse or absolute collapse in any of the provincial permitting systems.

New beetle species discovered in Palawan - Palawan - Philippines
By Hendrik Freitag & Michael Balke
Scientists have discovered a new species of beetle that dwells in the mountain rivers of Southern Palawan and said the find
indicated that the Philippines was the world's "centre of diversity" for beetles.
Dr. Henrick Freitag and and Dr. Michael Balke of the Senckenberg Museum of Zoology Dresden and the Bavarian State
Collections of Zoology in Munich described the new species of the Spider Water Beetles (Ancyronyx) as having "extremely
long legs, often accompanied by an eye-catching cross-like elytral colour pattern, so that they remind of spiders."
The discovery was disclosed in a news release posted on Oct. 18 by EurekAlert!, an online global news service operated by
the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), an international non-profit organization dedicated to
advancing science around the world.

Leaving oil in the ground - Ecuador
In the heart of the Amazonian forest, oil companies, scientists, environmentalists and
indigenous communities are holding their breath. President Rafael Correa of Ecuador has made
perhaps the most ambitious proposal yet to fight climate change, conserve a biodiversity
hotspot and protect indigenous rights.
He is appealing to the international community to provide US$3.6 billion over 13 years in
partial compensation for the loss in revenue if Ecuador undertakes not to exploit just under 1
billion barrels of oil lying beneath Yasuni Biosphere Reserve. The reserve is home to the

From bamboo to tea: sustainable development in biosphere reserves
Established in 1987, Wuyishan Biosphere Reserve is also a World Heritage site. The site is
exceptional for Mount Wuyi’s unique sub-tropical forests and the mountain’s status as the
birthplace of Confucianism.
In 1994, the biosphere reserve set up the Joint Protection Committee for Fujian Wuyishan
National Nature Reserve to involve all the villages in environmental protection schemes. In
parallel, it supported the development of alternative livelihoods in the transition area like the
planting of bamboo. In recent years, beekeeping, eco-tourism, catering, transportation and
other industries have also begun to bring good returns.

Humedales sanos implica gente sana. Y al contrario, unos humedales degradados por las actividades
humanas, especialmente las que hacen que disminuya la calidad y disponibilidad del agua, generalmente
ven mermadas sus capacidades para prestar los servicios de los ecosistemas que, tanto de forma directa
como indirecta, afectan a la salud humana al repercutir, entre otros, en la pérdida de producción de
alimentos y en los medios de vida locales. Los humedales degradados también pueden provocar la
aparición de enfermedades infecciosas y el resurgimiento de enfermedades relacionadas con el agua,
comprometiendo igualmente la salud humana, y pueden hacer que disminuya la disponibilidad de plantas
y animales de los humedales con valores medicinales de particular importancia para las poblaciones indígenas y las
comunidades locales…

This report reflects the progress made by BBP in 2010. The stories are selected to present a fair and balanced
representation of BBP’s results in terms of delivering the planned programme activities. The current programme of IUCN
runs from 2009–2012.
Conserving biodiversity – stopping the extinction of animal and plant species, and stopping the destruction of natural
places – is the core of IUCN’s work. Profoundly linked to biodiversity are four of humankind’s greatest challenges: climate
change, energy, livelihoods and economic. The structure of the report reflects these five areas: (1) Conserving the
Diversity of Life, (2) Changing the Climate Forecast, (3) Naturally Energizing the Future, (4) Managing Ecosystems for
Human Well-Being, and (5) Greening the World Economy. Although BBP contributed to all the five key areas, the focus of
the work has been on Thematic Programme Areas (TPA) 3 and 5.

Evidence of cellulose metabolism by the giant panda gut microbiome
Lifeng Zhua, Qi Wua, Jiayin Daia, Shanning Zhangb and Fuwen Weia
The giant panda genome codes for all necessary enzymes associated with a carnivorous digestive system but lacks genes
for enzymes needed to digest cellulose, the principal component of their bamboo diet. It has been posited that this iconic
species must therefore possess microbial symbionts capable of metabolizing cellulose, but these symbionts have remained
undetected. Here we examined 5,522 prokaryotic ribosomal RNA gene sequences in wild and captive giant panda fecal
samples. We found lower species richness of the panda microbiome than of mammalian microbiomes for herbivores and
nonherbivorous carnivores. We detected 13 operational taxonomic units closely related to Clostridium groups I and XIVa,
both of which contain taxa known to digest cellulose. Seven of these 13 operational taxonomic units were unique to pandas
compared with other mammals…

Review of the World Heritage Network: Biogeography, Habitats and Biodiversity
Author: Magin, C., Chape, S.
Date Published: January 2004
The aim of the World Heritage Convention is to ensure the protection for all time of the world’s natural and
cultural heritage of Outstanding Universal Value. In 1994, to assist in meeting this aim, the World Heritage
Committee adopted a Global Strategy for achieving a balanced, representative and credible World Heritage
List that reflects the world’s diverse heritage. Over the past 10 years a number of studies and consultations
have been carried out to develop and refine the Global Strategy. This review is an important addition to
that process, focusing on the inter-related elements of biogeography, habitats and biological diversity that underpin much
of what we consider ‘natural heritage’.

Entreprises et biodiversité: Premiers résultats d'enquête - Commissariat Général au Développement Durable

Le Ministère a mené en 2010 une enquête auprès de 3 600 entreprises afin de mesurer la prise de conscience de leurs
interactions avec les écosystèmes et l’intégration de la biodiversité dans leurs stratégies. Les entreprises interrogées se
sont déclarées très majoritairement (deux tiers) conscientes de leurs impacts négatifs sur la biodiversité et, dans une
moindre mesure (un tiers), de leur dépendance vis-à-vis des services fournis par les écosystèmes. Les principales
pressions qu’elles exercent portent sur la qualité de l’air, de l’eau et du sol, un important service écologique dont elles
dépendent aussi. 40 % des entreprises anticipent que la perte de biodiversité représente un risque pour leurs activités à
l’avenir, contre 20 % aujourd’hui. Les entreprises incluent encore peu la biodiversité dans leurs politiques
environnementales. Les grandes sont deux tiers à déclarer agir en faveur de la biodiversité ou envisager de le faire. Elles
sont alors davantage motivées par la gestion des risques financiers et réglementaires associés à la perte de biodiversité
que par une intégration de la biodiversité dans leurs stratégies et activités.

State's love for old bridges rekindled by storm - Vermont - USA
BARTONSVILLE (AP).- By the time Susan Hammond came downstairs at 9 a.m. the rain was
falling hard. Standing on the back deck with Sunday coffee in hand, she looked down the hill
and through the trees to where the usually lazy Williams River powered over rocks, loud
enough to compete with the din of Tropical Storm Irene's downpour.
Inside, Hammond pulled up a chair to her computer to check the water level at a gauge just
downriver: 4 1/2 feet, nearly doubled from the night before, but well below flood stage. For
peace of mind, though, Hammond reached for an umbrella and headed down the road to pay
her hamlet's 141-year-old covered bridge a call.
Even by Vermont standards, Bartonsville's bridge was out of the ordinary, a 159-foot expanse of brown boards weathered
to a distinguished gray, with rectangular windows revealing a thick skeleton of criss-cross latticework. Standing under
umbrellas just beyond the bridge's portal, Hammond and her neighbors traded talk of the storm, before she headed back
to the house.
Around 11, she checked the river gauge again: 8 feet. Flood stage. When she went down to check on the bridge, just a few
feet separated its boards from the water. And the distance between the two was narrowing fast.

Happy Birthday Le Corbusier!
Today marks the Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier’s birthday. Noted as one of the pioneers of
modern architecture, Le Corbusier’s architecture career spanned some five decades. Born in 1887, which
would make him 124 today, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret adopted the pseudonym Le Corbusier in the
1920s. Known for both his architecture and furniture design you can visit the Galerie Anton Meier where
some of Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret furniture is currently on a special exhibit. More of ArchDaily’s

UNESCO to assess flood-affected Ayutthaya World Heritage site - Bangkok Thailand
UNESCO Bangkok has been requested by the Thai government to undertake a mission to
the Ancient City of Ayutthaya in Thailand to assess the impact to the World Heritage

The World Heritage property of Ayutthaya, which occupies the western half of the inner
island of Ayutthaya, has been flooded for more than a week. Monuments and temples on
the outside perimeter of the site (technically not part of the World Heritage property), such
as Wat Chaiwattanaram on the opposite bank of the river, have also been inundated.

Museum Folkwang - David Chipperfield - Essen - Germany
“Ruhr.2010 – European Capital of Culture” is the name of the project with which Essen and the
Ruhr are confronting changing times. The “Pott”, as the area is affectionately known in Germany,
is shaking off its coal-and-steel-producing past and mutating into a “new-style polycentric
cultural metropolis”. A high-flying objective. But one that nevertheless appears to be achievable
– certainly as long as the route is paved with milestones like the new Museum Folkwang building
inaugurated at the beginning of 2010.
The source of this particular milestone is British star architect David Chipperfield, who has
achieved great familiarity – not only within the architectural world – with projects such as his recent restoration of the New
Museum in Berlin. His speciality: “feeling his way into” existing structures that invariably enjoy his deepest respect. He has
again been able to put this speciality through its paces with the new Folkwang Museum building. The period museum built
in 1960, which is now linked to the new structure by means of two glass crossovers, was the point of departure for the
entire planning procedure; the extension built in 1983 and so unloved locally had to go.

World Monuments Fund 2012 Endangered Monuments Watch includes two iconic New
York buildings - New York State - USA
The World Monuments Fund calls for international awareness to the 2012 list of endangered
monuments. The watch encompasses 67 threatened cultural-heritage sites worldwide. These
influential landmarks include the iconic Manufacturers Trust Company Building in New York City
designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Paul Rudolph’s Orange County
Government Center in Goshen, New York.
The former 1950’s Manufactures Trust Bank exemplifies mid-century modern architecture
situated on one of the busiest streets of Manhattan. The glass and aluminum façade abandoned the traditional “fortress”
approach and confidently displayed the interiors of the bank, exposing the 30-ton steel vault serving as a metaphor for
transparency in banking. In 1997, the building was designated a New York City landmark and in early 2011 received
protection for the modern interiors designed by Eleanor H. Le Maire. The current owners are adapting the building for reuse
and altering the interior features, endangering the iconic bond between the exterior and interior.

English Heritage Guidance Note: Theft of Metal from Church Buildings
This guidance note sets out English Heritage’s1 response to the epidemic of lead theft2 which is affecting historic buildings
and, in particular, parish churches3. We recognise that any theft brings frustration, expense and inconvenience to
congregations. Preventing future thefts is paramount, but dealing with the unfortunate aftermath in an appropriate way is
also very important.
This guidance is in two parts: the first outlines English Heritage’s approach and our advice for congregations on the
significance of lead, how to protect it, and how to respond to thefts; the second offers detailed practical information about
selecting the material to be used for historic church roofs and making it secure.

Successful School Refurbishment Case Studies - English Heritage
Wider economic circumstances and reducing public sector budgets clearly have implications for capital investment in school
buildings. Together with the recommendations from the James review, this background is likely to mean that over the
short to medium term future local education authorities will need to focus on managing their existing school estate to
ensure it offers the best possible educational environment…

Revised and illustrated versions of Selection guides for buildings and structures are
now available - United Kingdom
Selection guides for buildings and structures were first published in 2007 and are an important
step towards a more transparent designation system. They have proved themselves to be
essential tools in assessing candidates for designation. Revised and illustrated selection guides
for listing have now been published (May 2011) and build on the original documents without
departing from their essential messages.
The wide range of buildings and structures is divided into 20 categories ranging from Agricultural
Buildings to Utilities and Communications. In each guide, an historical introduction is followed by a consideration of
designation issues, together with sources of further information.

ARCHITECTURE AND INNOVATION FOR HERITAGE - a cura di Giuseppe De Giovanni ed
Emanuele Walter Angelico
Giuseppe De Giovanni, Emanuele Walter Angelico
ISBN 978-88-548-3837-6
Gli articoli, raccolti in questo volume, si rivolgono essenzialmente a quell’aspetto del “senso del
passato” (sense of past) che tende alla valorizzazione e alla conservazione del Patrimonio Culturale
(Heritage), tramandato dalle civiltà e dalle culture del passato, attraverso l’attivazione di processi
innovativi per la sua salvaguardia, la sua protezione e fruizione e, infine, per la sua conoscenza. La
collettività deve considerare lo Heritage, la cui natura è materiale e immateriale, non come oggetto di culto ma come
promotore di nuovi artifici e di nuove attività, ovvero d’innovazione.

Stopping the Rot: A Guide to Enforcement Action to Save Historic Buildings - English Heritage
Keeping historic buildings in good repair and, where possible, in use, is the key to their preservation.
Owners of listed buildings are under no statutory obligation to maintain their property in a good state of
repair, although it is in their interests to do so. Local authorities can, however, take action to secure repair
when it becomes evident that a building is being allowed to deteriorate.
Urgent Works Notices, Repairs Notices and Section 215 Notices can be very effective tools to help secure
the preservation of historic buildings.
This guidance, which supersedes the first edition published in 1999, is designed to help local authorities
make effective use of these powers. It provides step-by-step advice on the use of the main procedures and includes case
studies and a selection of specimen letters, notices, schedules and agreements.

Vacant Historic Buildings: An owner's guide to temporary uses, maintenance and mothballing English Heritage
English Heritage has produced this guidance to help owners to reduce the risks facing empty buildings, by
undertaking a range of precautionary measures and adopting an active management approach. It applies
to all types of heritage buildings, whether or not they have statutory protection.
It explains how to de-commission buildings that are about to be vacated, as well as how to look after
buildings that have already been vacant for some time. By adopting this approach, owners can prevent
unnecessary damage, dereliction and loss of significance to these buildings. They will also benefit by
maintaining the market value of their assets and increasing the chances of bringing them back into permanent use.

El cambio climático afecta a plantas y animales de todo el planeta
El cambio climático entraña riesgos para los ecosistemas en todos los continentes. Recientemente, los científicos del
Instituto de investigación climática de Potsdam (PIK - Brandeburgo) han identificado el alcance del peligro para los
animales y las plantas a través de análisis realizados a nivel mundial. Para ello, los científicos han desarrollado un nuevo
sistema de medición que, por primera vez, cuantifica sistemáticamente el impacto en los ecosistemas de las variaciones de
temperatura, precipitaciones y la concentración de CO2 en el aire. Las previsiones actuales prevén un aumento de 2 ° C.
Sin embargo, si la temperatura media mundial se eleva más de 2 ° C, el impacto en muchas áreas podría verse
amplificado considerablemente.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Readies New Type Of Earth-Observing Satellite For
Launch - USA
NASA is planning an Oct. 27 launch of the first Earth-observing satellite to measure both global climate changes and key
weather variables.
The National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project (NPP) is the first mission
designed to collect critical data to improve weather forecasts in the short-term and increase our understanding of longterm climate change. NPP continues observations of Earth from space that NASA has pioneered for more than 40 years.
NPP's five science instruments, including four new state-of-the-art sensors, will provide scientists with data to extend more
than 30 key long-term datasets. These records, which range from the ozone layer and land cover to atmospheric
temperatures and ice cover, are critical for global change science.

7.000 millones de personas en la Tierra - Es hora de ACTUAR - WWF
Desde el pasado lunes, el Planeta ya cuenta con 7.000 millones de personas. La humanidad está consumiendo actualmente
los recursos naturales a una velocidad mayor de la que pueden regenerar los ecosistemas y continúa liberando más CO2
del que puede absorber la naturaleza.
Además, aunque la ONU afirma que el Planeta es capaz de cubrir las necesidades de todos, la realidad es que esto es
imposible si continúa el ritmo de consumo de los países del hemisferio norte. Y es que no se trata sólo de alimentar a una
población creciente, sino también de transportar mercancías, utilizar medicinas, facilitar las comunicaciones y consumir
energía. En estos momentos, WWF recuerda que la huella ecológica es mayor que la biocapacidad (capacidad regenerativa)
del planeta y esta es la ruta más clara hacia la insostenibilidad.

Redrawing the Arctic map: The new north
Getting to grips with a changing polar landscape.
The Arctic covers around 5% of the planet's surface, but it is capturing a disproportionate amount of attention. With
temperatures rising at twice the global rate, the region's summer sea ice is shrinking rapidly, making access easier than
ever before. At the same time, countries are racing to claim parts of the Arctic's sea floor and the vast deposits of
hydrocarbons that lie beneath it.

Changes in plant community composition lag behind climate warming in lowland forests
By Romain Bertrand, Jonathan Lenoir, Christian Piedallu, Gabriela Riofrío-Dillon, Patrice de Ruffray, Claude Vidal, JeanClaude Pierrat & Jean-Claude Gégout
Climate change is driving latitudinal and altitudinal shifts in species distribution worldwide, leading to novel species
assemblages. Lags between these biotic responses and contemporary climate changes have been reported for plants and
animals. Theoretically, the magnitude of these lags should be greatest in lowland areas, where the velocity of climate
change is expected to be much greater than that in highland areas. We compared temperature trends to temperatures
reconstructed from plant assemblages (observed in 76,634 surveys) over a 44-year period in France (1965–2008). Here
we report that forest plant communities had responded to 0.54 °C of the effective increase of 1.07 °C in highland areas
(500–2,600 m above sea level), while they had responded to only 0.02 °C of the 1.11 °C warming trend in lowland areas…

La protección marina en el Ártico no puede esperar
La economía global, no el descenso del hielo del mar, está llevando a los barcos al océano Ártico. Solo una

La mayoría de la gente sabe que un cambio profundo está teniendo lugar en el océano Ártico. La mayoría
de la gente así lo diría porque el hielo del mar está en proceso de retroceso. Pero la mayoría de la gente se
equivocaría. Los cambios en el hielo del mar son solo parte de una historia que, de hecho, debe su
existencia a las economías y la geopolítica. A pesar de los titulares, los hacedores de políticas,
planificadores y encargados de la regulación necesitan mirar más allá del hielo que se desvanece y mirar a
los motores de la economía para entender que se necesita de forma urgente una regulación para hacer frente al
crecimiento desmesurado de la región.

Leaving oil in the ground - Ecuador
In the heart of the Amazonian forest, oil companies, scientists, environmentalists and
indigenous communities are holding their breath. President Rafael Correa of Ecuador has made
perhaps the most ambitious proposal yet to fight climate change, conserve a biodiversity
hotspot and protect indigenous rights.
He is appealing to the international community to provide US$3.6 billion over 13 years in
partial compensation for the loss in revenue if Ecuador undertakes not to exploit just under 1
billion barrels of oil lying beneath Yasuni Biosphere Reserve. The reserve is home to the
Huaorani people, as well as to the Tagaeri and the Taromenani who are both living in voluntary isolation.

Museums and a common world: climate change, cosmopolitics, museum practice
Ben Dibley (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 154-165, 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
At stake in this paper is the nature of the relationship between the institution of the museum and the common world. It is
contended that such relations are regularly asserted through cosmopolitan appeals, which are premised on the assumption
that a cosmos, a world, a universal, pre-exists its articulation, and, that it is the task of reason and of science to adjust the
citizen-subject to this already-present condition. This paper argues that this is a flawed position because it assumes, in
fact, what is required to be built: a world in common.
In defence of this proposition, two recent declarations of museum cosmopolitanism are explored: ICOM’s declaration on the
‘universal museum’, which focuses on the unity of the cultural heritage of humankind; and the Buffon Declaration, which
concerns institutions of natural history and the imperilment of humanity’s biospheric inheritance. Subsequently, the paper
turns to what might be called the empirics of the cosmopolitanism of the museum visitor.
This examines the qualitative investigation of banal or everyday cosmopolitanism, which is largely ignored by such
museum declarations.
These different museological articulations of a common world are, in turn, reviewed through the juxtaposition of two
sociologies: Ulrich Beck’s cosmopolitanism and Bruno Latour’s compositionism. It is in contrasting these various
mobilizations of the cosmopolitan – the museological, the empirical and the sociological – that the paper advances its
proposition:
namely, that these cosmopolitan claims are based on the assumption that a common world exists prior to its assemblage
as such.

Museums and science centres as sites for deliberative democracy on climate change
Fiona Cameron (University of Western Sydney); Ann Deslandes ( Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 136-153, 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
This paper addresses the position of the museum sector in relation to public policy-making about climate change. It is
informed by the perspectives of museum and science centre visitors and leaders canvassed as part of the Australian
Research Council Linkage project, ‘Hot Science, Global Citizens: the agency of the museum sector in climate change
interventions’. We apply complexity theory to evaluate the claim that museums are a site for the enaction of deliberative
democracy. In doing so, we reveal a cultural opportunity for cultural institutions to play a more expansive and explicit role
in brokering social futures for communities confronted by climate change.

From mitigation to creativity: the agency of museums and science centres and the means to govern climate
change
Fiona Cameron (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 90-106, 2011
ISSN 1479-8360
Climate change as a complex, scientific, cultural, ideological, and transnational issue poses a new set of challenges for
museums and science centres as places to inform, and as information sources in debates and decision processes.
In this paper, I draw on quantitative and qualitative research from the Australian Research Council funded Linkage project,
Hot Science, Global Citizens: the agency of the museum sector in climate change interventions, to interrogate the
potentialities for institutions to operate meaningfully and in new ways in complex media ecologies and dense mediations of
political, social, scientific discourses, and expertize. In developing the concepts liquid governmentalities and liquid
museums, I pose new leverage points for institutions to operate within these pluralistic and complex governmental

The Mediations of climate change: museums as citizens’ media
Juan Francisco Salazar (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 123-135, 2011
ISSN 1479-8360
Social research underlines how the mass media frames and presents environmental change and risk in ways that become
contested cultural constructs embedded in deep ideological structures. While significant attention has concentrated on the
mass media, less consideration has been given to examining the role of museums and science centres in communicating
the science of climate change. The article looks at museums as cultural brokers in collaborative efforts around public
understandings of climate change.
Engaging with recent conceptualizations around citizens and public media practices, it proposes participatory design
mechanisms through which the museum sector can act as change-agents in fostering a new form of public pedagogy that
incorporates differing civic epistemologies around climate change education and action.

What influences climate and glacier change in southwestern China?
By Teppei J Yasunari
The subject of climate change in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) and Himalayas has taken on increasing importance because of
the availability of water resources from their mountain glaciers (Immerzeel et al 2010). Many of the glaciers over these
regions have been retreating, while some are advancing and stable (Yao et al 2004, Scherler et al 2011). Other studies
report that some glaciers in the Himalayas show acceleration of their shrinkage (e.g., Fujita and Nuimura 2011). However,
the causes of glacier melting are still difficult to grasp because of the complexity of climatic change and its influence on
glacier issues. Despite this, it is vital that we pursue further study to enable future predictions of glacier changes…

Report - Keeping Track of our changing environment - From Rio to Rio + 20 (1992-2012)
UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme)
This publication helps to tell the story of where the world was 20 years ago and where we
collectively stand today, and to show the direction in which we need to move in a post-Rio+20 world.
It also highlights the missing pieces in our knowledge about the state of environment— such as
those related to freshwater quality and quantity, ground water depletion, ecosystem services, loss of
natural habitat, land degradation, chemicals and waste—due to lack of regular monitoring, collection
and compilation of data. Scientifically-credible data for environmental monitoring remains
inadequate and the challenge of building in-country capacity to produce better policy-relevant data needs urgent attention.

Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano 2011 - Sostenibilidad y Equidad: Un mejor futuro para todos
Según el informe, es necesaria una acción decidida en ambos frentes para lograr mantener los avances
en desarrollo humano obtenidos recientemente por la mayoría de los países más pobres del mundo, tanto
para el bien de futuras generaciones como para las actuales. Informes anteriores han demostrado que los
estándares de vida de la mayoría de países han mejorado y que, de hecho, desde hace décadas tienden
hacia la convergencia. Sin embargo, el Informe 2011 prevé un retroceso alarmante de dichas tendencias
en caso de que el deterioro medioambiental y las desigualdades sociales sigan intensificándose, con una
previsión de que los países menos desarrollados invertirán esta tendencia y se alejarán de nuevo de los
patrones globales antes de 2050. El Informe muestra cómo los más desfavorecidos del mundo son los que más sufren la
degradación medioambiental, también en su entorno personal más inmediato, y la desproporcionada falta de poder
político, dificultando aún más que la comunidad internacional llegue a un consenso sobre los cambios de políticas globales
necesarios.

State's love for old bridges rekindled by storm - Vermont - USA
BARTONSVILLE (AP).- By the time Susan Hammond came downstairs at 9 a.m. the rain was
falling hard. Standing on the back deck with Sunday coffee in hand, she looked down the hill
and through the trees to where the usually lazy Williams River powered over rocks, loud
enough to compete with the din of Tropical Storm Irene's downpour.
Inside, Hammond pulled up a chair to her computer to check the water level at a gauge just
downriver: 4 1/2 feet, nearly doubled from the night before, but well below flood stage. For
peace of mind, though, Hammond reached for an umbrella and headed down the road to pay
her hamlet's 141-year-old covered bridge a call.
Even by Vermont standards, Bartonsville's bridge was out of the ordinary, a 159-foot expanse of brown boards weathered
to a distinguished gray, with rectangular windows revealing a thick skeleton of criss-cross latticework. Standing under
umbrellas just beyond the bridge's portal, Hammond and her neighbors traded talk of the storm, before she headed back
to the house.
Around 11, she checked the river gauge again: 8 feet. Flood stage. When she went down to check on the bridge, just a few
feet separated its boards from the water. And the distance between the two was narrowing fast.

Premier Forum International de l'économie mauve - Paris - France - (11-13 octobre 2011)
Pour la première édition du forum international de l’économie mauve, Paris a accueilli du 11 au 13 octobre 2011 des
témoins venus d’horizons très variés pour s’exprimer sur la question d’un rapprochement entre culture, économie et
développement durable.
En reprenant les mots de Valérie Pécresse, prononcés à cette occasion, la culture souffre en France d’un cloisonnement par
rapport à l’économie, de même que pour l’enseignement et la recherche « on a trop "bunkerisé" les spécialités en
ressources humaines et sociales, on les a trop sorties du champ de l’économie et de la sphère de la science ». « Il faut
refaire des mariages », a poursuivi la ministre, venue apporter son entier soutien et celui du gouvernement français au
concept d’économie mauve. Du fait de la mondialisation notamment « dans toute notre recherche sur l’économie et
l’innovation, a-t-elle précisé, l’investissement ne sera vraiment rentable que si nous mettons au coeur la question de la
diversité culturelle ». Au-delà des opportunités tirées de l’adaptation à la diversité, pour Valérie Pécresse « la culture est
un élément clé sur lequel on bâtit une grande économie ».

A Background to the Armenian Heritage Centre - Valence - France
Since the 1920s, Valence and the surrounding area have welcomed an important population of Armenian origin, marked by
the tragic events of genocide and exile, as well as the difficulties of immigration. This exceptionally dynamic population has
integrated perfectly into the life of the town to which it has added its particularity thanks to the presence of a number of
associations and the maintain of strong traditions. The reference of identities, traditions and memories form the heritage of
the Armenians of Valence.
It is for this reason that the town of Valence created the Armenian Heritage Centre in 2005, included in the Valence Agglo
Sud Rhône-Alpes since January 1rst 2010.

La directora de la Unesco, Irina Bokova, ha advertido a los delegados de que la
muerte del ex líder libio, Muamar Gadafi, podría suponer un riesgo para los tesoros
libios como lo supuso para las miles de piezas arqueológicas que desaparecieron tras la caída del gobierno de Saddam

Identidad y conflicto: patrimonio cultural y la reconstrucción de identidades tras conflicto - Universidad de
Cambridge. Cambridge (Reino Unido)
Los conflictos recientes de Europa, y de otros lugares, han puesto de relieve la destrucción deliberada del patrimonio de
“los otros” como una manera de infligir dolor. A través de esta situación, se ha puesto de manifiesto que aun no
entendemos los procesos involucrados y, por lo tanto, tampoco las repercusiones a largo plazo. La reconstrucción del
patrimonio no se trata únicamente de diseño y recursos, lo que está en juego es la revisión y reconstrucción de la
identidad…

Fotografías de Roberto Chile
El destacado cineasta cubano Roberto Chile acaba de publicar su libro Afrodescendientes,
Guanabacoa-Cuba, material que recoge 40 fotos de su autoría, acompañadas de textos firmados
por el Sr. Herman van Hooff, Director de la Oficina Regional de Cultura para América Latina y el
Caribe de la UNESCO, el Dr. Eusebio Leal, Historiador de La Habana, el Sr. Juan Carlos Moya,
curador de la muestra, y el Sr. Gabriel Navarrete, Presidente de la Asociación Cultura y
Cooperación Internacional, de España.
Con una elegante edición, la obra revela a través de impactantes imágenes en blanco y negro "pequeñas historias de vida
de los habitantes de ese singular poblado habanero, otrora destino de negros esclavos en la isla y hoy asentamiento de
sucesivas generaciones de afrodescendientes que trabajan, estudian, aman, sufren y sueñan con pasión y denuedo en la
Cuba actual." Así la describió el Sr. van Hooff, quien también afirmó que es un "hermoso homenaje a la diversidad cultural,
regalo memorable de este gran artista cubano en este Año Internacional de los Afrodescendientes".

recherche. Deux premiers volumes sont parus en 2004 et 2006, sous la direction de Jean-Claude Cheynet
et c'est le troisième et dernier que nous proposent aujourd'hui les Presses Universitaires de France, dans la ligne de ce que
fut - dès son origine, il y a un demi-siècle - une collection « Nouvelle Clio » combinant une information bibliographique très
complète, un exposé des événements et d'ambitieuses synthèses consacrées aux divers aspects de la vie économique et
sociale, de l'évolution religieuse ou des productions culturelles…

Memorial functions: Intent, impact and the right to remember
By Dacia Viejo-Rose. University of Cambridge, UK
Studying memorial practice offers a revealing vantage point into changes in attitudes towards the past and with observers
referring to ‘memorial mania’ it is an opportune moment to do so. Two main lines of questioning regarding contemporary
memorial practices are addressed here. The first looks at memorial functions and intentions. The second examines some of
their social and political impacts. The final part of the article analyses some of the consequences of these impacts for
citizenship: notions of victimhood and silencing. The main case study is the evolution of memorial practice in Spain since
the Civil War (1936–39) this is set off against examples from other places. The conclusion that emerges is that
predominant memorial practices are far more despotic than democratic in their injunction to recall a specific narrative of
events and trying to steer a paradigm shift towards democratic memorial practices raises questions about civic rights and
duties towards the past.

Zoos humains et exhibitions coloniales - Groupe de recherche Achac (13)
En amont de l'exposition Exhibitions. L'invention du sauvage qui se tiendra du 29 novembre 2011 au 3 juin
2012 au musée du quai Branly, parait l'ouvrage Zoos humains et exhibitions coloniales. 150 ans
d'inventions de l'Autre, véritable synthèse et ouvrage de référence sur la question, rassemblant les
meilleurs spécialistes internationaux, sous la direction de Pascal Blanchard, Nicolas Bancel, Gilles Boëtsch,
Eric Deroo et Sandrine Lemaire aux éditions La Découverte. Cet ouvrage rassemble plus de 40 contributions.
Les « zoos humains », symboles oubliés de l’histoire contemporaine, ont été totalement refoulés de notre
mémoire collective. Ces exhibitions des « sauvages », aussi bien des « exotiques » que des « monstres »,
ont pourtant été, en Europe, aux États-Unis et au Japon, une étape majeure du passage progressif d’un racisme
scientifique à un racisme populaire. Au carrefour du discours savant, des cultures de masse et de l’intérêt des puissances
coloniales, ces exhibitions ont touché plus d’un milliard quatre cent millions de visiteurs depuis l’exhibition en Europe de la
Vénus hottentote, au début du XIXe siècle. Ces exhibitions, peuplées d’êtres difformes et de personnes en provenance des
espaces coloniaux d’Afrique, d’Amérique, d’Océanie ou d’Asie, comme appartenant à un univers de l’anormalité,
disparaîtront progressivement avec les années 1930, mais elles avaient fait alors leur œuvre : bâtir deux humanités.

2 tifones causan serios daños a los arrozales en terrazas de las cordilleras de Filipinas.
La isla de Nord-Luzon, situada en el archipiélago de Filipinas, fue afectada severamente por el tifón Pedrin (Denominación
común internacional: Nesat) que cruzó la región el martes 27 de septiembre. Su trayectoria afectó a la provincia de Ifugao,
provocando según los informes preliminares vertidos de lodo y deslizamientos de terreno dentro del sitio del patrimonio
mundial de los arrozales en terrazas de las cordilleras de Filipinas. Un segundo tifón afectó la zona el fin de semana pasado.
Mientras que el sistema de comunicación no está aún completamente en funcionamiento en la región y que numerosas
carreteras permanecen bloqueadas, la amplitud de los daños y el número de pérdidas humanas están aún por determinar.
Las autoridades filipinas informaron a la UNESCO que van a pedir una ayuda de urgencia mediante el Fondo urgente del
patrimonio mundial con el fin de responder a esta situación. La conservación de los Arrozales en terrazas exigirá esfuerzos
considerables y concertados. El centro del patrimonio mundial va a analizar y a examinar todos los medios posibles para
responder a esta situación lo más rápidamente posible.

que lo rodean son un ejemplo del uso temprano de los principios ecológicos en la arquitectura paisajística así como un
lugar de reuniones central y un punto importante del campus Amherst de la Universidad de Massachusetts. La
conservación del paisaje había sido recomendada por una serie de planificadores de paisaje conocidos a nivel nacional,
pero los administradores actuales del campus la consideraron tierra “vacía” y necesitada de “ser puesta en marcha” – un
lugar para construir nuevos edificios y puentes.

que le rôle des différents acteurs qui en sont la cause, de façon à orienter favorablement l’évolution du paysage. Ils
peuvent être initiés par les services services déconcentrés du ministère de l’écologie et de l’équipement,, mais aussi par les

En 2005 une enquête commanditée par le ministère de l’écologie a recensé les plans et les chartes de paysage élaborés en
France. Au final, 167 plans de paysage ont pu être recensés. Cet outil a été utilisé dans 14 régions, mais l’Auvergne avec
66 plans et la Lorraine avec 18, sont les régions dans lesquelles ces outils sont les plus utilisés.

Perception of Plants in Ancient Times and Their Use as Motifs Revealing Aspects of the Cultural
Landscape in Side, Turkey - Journal of Landscape Research
By Meryem Atik, Hacer Mutlu Danaci & Reyhan Erdoğan
Landscape can be defined as a complex of human and natural interactions through time. Therefore,
landscape identification requires a complete understanding of social, natural, economic, aesthetic and
cultural values. Contributing to the aesthetic-visual integrity of the landscape, plants are a valuable
indicator, recording the type and degree of the human – nature relationship over time. Our feelings,
imagination and perception often contribute to the cultural dimension of the landscape and the role of
plants in mythology can be used as a kind of linguistic code for helping to understand some aspects of cultural landscapes.
The aim of this study is to demonstrate how a number of key plants were perceived in ancient cultures using some
examples from the Mediterranean landscape and to use them to help to evaluate different dimensions of archaeological
landscapes using the case of the ancient city of Side in Turkey. Multi-dimensional approaches in landscape evaluation
which use symbolic meaning can generate valuable knowledge about cultural landscapes. This is precisely because cultural
landscapes are the sum of biological, physical and cultural components, while plants as natural elements have bridged the
biological and cultural dimensions.

The Setting of Heritage Assets: English Heritage Guidance
This document sets out English Heritage guidance on managing change within the settings of
heritage assets, including archaeological remains and historic buildings, sites, areas, and
landscapes.
It provides the basis for advice by English Heritage on the setting of heritage assets when we
respond to consultations and when we assess the implications of development proposals on
the historic estate that we manage. It is also intended to assist others involved with managing
development that may affect the setting of heritage assets.

Parks and Gardens Designation Criteria - Selection Guide - English Heritage
English Heritage registers only those sites which it considers to be of special historic interest.
As a guide to the level of historic interest required to make a site 'special' nine criteria have been drawn up to asses
whether to register a site. The application of these criteria, however, must be accompanied by expert and extensive
knowledge of the country's historic parks and gardens as a whole, to ensure that decisions are consistent.

Conférence tripartite Afrique-Brésil-France sur la lutte contre la désertification en
Afrique - Niamey - Niger (24-25 octobre 2011)
En dépit des progrès politiques réalisés en faveur du développement durable, les efforts dédiés à la
lutte contre le réchauffement climatique (pour en ralentir ses effets), et à son adaptation (pour en
atténuer les conséquences) restent insuffisants. Les conférences de Rio+20 (UNCDS) et du 6e
Forum de l’eau en 2012 constituent la meilleure opportunité pour saisir et renforcer l’intérêt de la
communauté internationale sur ce sujet et, pour ce qui concerne cette conférence, le
développement des zones arides…

Desertificación: el próximo recipient de polvo
¿Qué impacto del calentamiento antropogénico global hará más daño a la gente en las décadas
venideras? Creo que la respuesta es una sequía extendida o permanente en extensas partes de
tierra habitable o arable en la actualidad – un cambio drástico en el clima que amenazará la
seguridad alimentaria y que podría ser irreversible durante siglos.
Una predicción básica de la ciencia climática es que muchas partes del planeta experimentarán
sequías más prolongadas y profundas, gracias a los efectos sinérgicos de la sequía, del
calentamiento y del deshielo de la nieve y el hielo…

Archives of American Art Contributes Photo Collection to Wikimedia Commons - USA
The Archives of American Art has contributed 285 digitized photographs from the Federal Art Project's Photographic
Division Collection to Wikimedia Commons. Most of the photographs date between 1935 and 1942, the active years of the
Federal Art Project, which was part of the Work Progress Administration's Federal Project Number One. Digitized images
from the Federal Art Project's Photographic Division Collection have been made previously available on the Archives'
website, but this is the first time that high-resolution scans have been made available for unrestricted use by the public.

Estados Unidos: Los escritores denuncian a la Universidad a causa de un plan de digitalización de libros
Por Alison Moodie
Un plan controvertido que implica la digitalización de miles de libros con copy right por parte de universidades americanas
sufrió un revés el mes pasado cuando un número de organizaciones que representan a autores intentaron detener los
esfuerzos de digitalización y la iniciativa de “trabajos huérfanos”.
En una denuncia puesta el 12 de septiembre el gremio de autores, un grupo de apoyo a los escritores y varios autores a
título personal acusaron a las universidades – incluyendo la de Wisconsin, Michigan y la de California –de realizar
fotocopias sin permiso de alrededor de siete millones de libros y de colgarlas en un repositorio llamado Hathitrust, quien
está también acusado en el caso.

Europeana, Europe’s digital library, museum and archive, today launches a redesign with new functionality. The new
interface has more visual appeal and has been adapted for iPads and Android touchscreens, bringing all the benefits of
touch to Europe’s online treasury.
Europeana’s makeover has been shaped by users, who have helped to create the services they wanted around their
cultural heritage. One request was made above all: the right to download for free and re-use the cultural highlights they
find on the site. For the first time, Europeana makes it possible to narrow searches ‘by copyright’ so that public domain –
out of copyright – content can be precisely targeted.

Buffalo Unscripted: Documentary Project - Buffalo - New York State - USA
Filmed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Buffalo Unscripted is an interactive project dedicated to the Nickel
City and the historic places that define it. You can stream the documentary in its entirety on our Vimeo channel.
Buffalo is the City of No Illusions, but that doesn’t mean people know the truth about it. In the summer of 2011, a film
crew from the National Trust for Historic Preservation hit the streets of the Nickel City with one goal: Let Buffalonians tell
the story of their city, its past, and its future like only they can.

Los museos de arte de Menil, Whiteny y Harvard ponen en marcha su
programa en línea de archivo de documentos – EEUU
Los conservadores del arte contemporáneo se enfrentan a retos singulares. Frente a
sus antiguos maestros, las obras de arte contemporáneas son con frecuencia efímeras
desde el punto de vista material, basadas en el tiempo, interactivas o conceptuales. Al
restaurar estas obras, los conservadores confían el gran manera en la documentación
existente de los materiales, técnicas e intenciones de un artista, con frecuencia siendo
necesario consultar al artista directamente. Cuando los artistas no vieven, la
información que hay disponible puede ser bastante escasa.
Para afrontar este problema, la conservadora Carol Mancusi-Ungaro tuvo la idea de formar el Artists Documentation
Program (ADP), en el cual los conservadores entrevistan a los artistas en presencia de sus obras de arte para entender sus
materiales y técnicas. El ADP crea un informe perenne de las actitudes de un artista respecto a la restauración y exhibición
de su propia obra – “un testimonio en vida” para su trabajo.

Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual
El tema de la celebración del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual de 2011 es: “Patrimonio audiovisual:
Ver, oir y aprender.”
Las grabaciones de sonido y las imágenes en movimiento son documentos extremadamente vulnerables, ya
que se pueden destruir fácilmente y de forma deliberada. El patrimonio audiovisual, emblemático del siglo
XX, se puede perder definitivamente a consecuencia del abandono, el deterioro natural y la obsolescencia
tecnológica. El público ha de ser consciente de la importancia de salvaguardar estas grabaciones. Con la
proclamación del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual se intenta crear una plataforma para sensibilizar al
mundo sobre este tema.

Un plan controvertido que implica la digitalización de miles de libros con copy right por parte de universidades americanas
sufrió un revés el mes pasado cuando un número de organizaciones que representan a autores intentaron detener los
esfuerzos de digitalización y la iniciativa de “trabajos huérfanos”.
En una denuncia puesta el 12 de septiembre el gremio de autores, un grupo de apoyo a los escritores y varios autores a
título personal acusaron a las universidades – incluyendo la de Wisconsin, Michigan y la de California –de realizar
fotocopias sin permiso de alrededor de siete millones de libros y de colgarlas en un repositorio llamado Hathitrust, quien
está también acusado en el caso.

Magíster en Arte y Patrimonio - Universidad de Concepción - Concepción - Chile
Contactos: Prof. Javier Ramírez Hinrichsen. Director Magíster en Arte y Patrimonio - [email protected]
El Programa de Magíster en Arte y Patrimonio tiene por objetivo entregar una visión integral entre arte y patrimonio. El
logro y la visión propuesta se basa en la definición del patrimonio cultural contemporáneo integrado en la Convención de
Patrimonio Mundial de la UNESCO de 1972, específicamente de los criterios de implementación de la convención ocupados
desde la década de 1990, donde se establece que el hombre produce en la sociedad, por medio de las interacciones
humanas, bienes culturales, espirituales y de expresión creativa. El desarrollo del objetivo y la visión del programa de
Magíster en Arte y Patrimonio de la Facultad de Humanidades y Arte se estructura sobre la base de una malla curricular
que integra áreas de investigación, tales como: Artes Visuales, Historia, Antropología, Estética, Literatura, Geografía y
Arquitectura. La integración de las áreas mencionadas tiene por finalidad permitir un campo de estudio donde lo tangible e
intangible del patrimonio cultural se analice en conjunto. Consecuentemente, se definen dos grandes líneas de
investigación: a) patrimonio urbano y arte contemporáneo y b) patrimonio inmaterial y prácticas artísticas.

El Instituto Arqueológico de América (AIA) celebra su 5ª Feria Anual de Arqueología
– Museo de Ciencias de Boston – Massachusetts – EEUU- (7-8 de octubre 2011)
El Mes de la Arqueología está en marcha en Massachusetts y por quinto año consecutivo la
Feria de Arqueología AIA-MOS llenó el Museo de Ciencia de Boston con grupos de escolares,
niños y familias. El 7 y 8 de octubre los asistentes a la feria exploraron el fascinante mundo de
la arqueología gracias a una variedad de juegos y actividades de carácter interactivo.
Cerca de 20 arqueólogos, especialistas en museos y otros expertos estuvieron disponibles para
debatir los varios aspectos de su trabajo arqueológico con los asistentes. Los organizadores de
la feria de este año involucraron a los asistentes con demostraciones en directo de habilidades primitivas como la talla
lítica y de lanzamiento de átlatl, vidrio soplado y de las responsabilidades diarias de un soldado romano. Los asistentes
pudieron también probar su mano en la escritura cuneiforme, llevar a cabo excavaciones de prueba, o excavaciones bajo
tierra simuladas, y probar tecnologías de procesamiento del grano y ¡mucho más! Esta feria anual ofrece una gran
oportunidad para que los entusiastas de todas las edades de la arqueología de Nueva Inglaterra se reúnan, descubran,
aprendan y compartan su pasión por el pasado.

Formación en planificación espacial marina de sitios marinos del patrimonio
mundial - Baja California (México)
Del 28 de septiembre al 5 de octubre de 2011, el Programa Marino del Patrimonio Mundial
organizó durante 2 días una formación de planificación espacial de los ecosistemas marinos
para el personal de gestión de dos sitios del Patrimonio Mundial: el santuario de las ballenas
de El Vizcaíno y las islas y superficies protegidas del Golfo de California (ambos situados en
Baja California, en México).
El Santuario de las ballenas de El Vizcaíno está inscrito en el Patrimonio Mundial desde
1993. Se trata de la única zona de parición y repoblación de ballenas grises del Pacífico-Este, que efectúan cada temporada
un viaje de millares de millas, desde el mar de Bering y de los Chukches en el Ártico. De todas las poblaciones de ballenas
grises del mundo, ésta es la última que está aún en buenas condiciones.

Triche et plagiat à l'université : Le Cameroun aussi
Le phénomène du plagiat, courant en littérature, a atteint l'Enseignement supérieur. Dans tous les pays, il sévit et fait
l'objet de sanctions sévères. Dans les pays du Sud, il s'amplifie à l'Université où quelques enseignants s'approprient le
travail de leurs étudiants. L'installation d'outils anti-plagiat électronique, associée à une véritable formation de tous, profs
et étudiants, à la culture de la recherche, pourraient stopper cette épidémie.

3era edición: Día Internacional de Limpieza de Costas 2011 - Uruguay - 12 de Noviembre de 2011
Bolsas de supermercado… colillas de cigarro… papeles de caramelos. No caen del cielo, caen de nuestras manos. Y lo que
el mar arrastra a la costa es solamente una fracción de lo que termina en el agua, amenazando la vida marina y dañando
los ecosistemas, día a día, todos los días.
El Día Internacional de Limpieza de Costas es un evento que se realiza desde 1986 que tiene lugar en más de cien países
alrededor del mundo. Cada año, cientos de miles de voluntarios pasan un día recolectando basura en sus playas locales
como una demostración de su compromiso con la limpieza de la línea de costa y océano adyacente. El Programa EcoPlata
trae por tercer año consecutivo este evento a Uruguay, sirviendo como coordinador nacional para el Día Internacional de
Limpieza de Costas.

Calls for quotas for foreign students - The Netherlands
By Jan Petter Myklebust and Robert Visscher
A 54% increase in foreign students in Dutch higher education over the past four years has prompted calls from political
parties on the right and left for the introduction of quotas, and specifically for the allocation of places through a
government lottery.
The number of foreign students has risen by 19,000 since 2006 to 54,500. Over the same period, the share of allotted
lottery places in medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine going to foreign students rose from 9.3% to 18.3%.

EDUCACIÓN & SOSTENIBILIDAD – Investigación- Comunidad de Desarrollo de África Austral
(SADC), Programa de Educación Medioambiental Regional
En 1993, la Comunidad de Desarrollo de África Austral (SADC) en el sector para el Medioambiente y la
Gestión del Suelo (ELMS) puso en marcha un programa para apoyar los procesos de educación
medioambiental en la región africana meridional. La fase inicial de este programa incluía una serie de
talleres que involucraban a profesionales de la educación medioambiental en la región. El primer taller
fue celebrado en Windhoek, Namibia en 1984 y el segundo en Howick, Sudáfrica en 1996. Estos talleres
se vieron complementados con otros procesos de investigación diseñados para evaluar el estado de la
educación medioambiental en la región. Basados en la información recogido durante esta fase inicial un programa formal
se desarrolló y se envió al Consejo de Ministros del SADC para su aprobación.
Aunque la investigación ha sido parte fundamental de SADC REEP, como una actividad trasversal en las actividades del
programa, su importante papel a la hora de informar sobre esta práctica llevó a tomar la decisión de que se convirtiera en
un componente independiente.

Playing with fire: struggling with ‘experience’ and ‘play’ in war tourism
Mads Daugbjerg
In Museum and society, Mar 2011. 9(1) 17-33 © 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
This paper takes up the ambiguities of embracing ‘experiential’ and ‘playful’ ways of learning at war sites. It takes as its
point of departure the widespread tendencies in the heritage industry to align communication to new emotional and playful
ways of learning about the past and goes on to demonstrate and discuss how these assert themselves at a specific Danish
war site. The links between the concepts of heritage, experience, romanticism and nationalism are investigated with
historical reference to the Scandinavian open air museology and theoretical inspiration drawn from Scott Lash and his
notion of a ‘second’ modernity. It is argued that the current obsession with ‘experience’ in the heritage sector displays a
range of neo-romantic traits. At the Danish centre, staff and visitors are shown to negotiate and struggle to ‘balance off’
their playful and romantic engagements
against more distanced, non-involved stances towards the war past.

Ouverture des journées internationales de la forêt à Bonn - Allemagne - (6 octobre 2011)
"La forêt a la capacité d'apporter, par une gestion durable adequate, une diversité inimaginable en termes de produits et
de services, non seulement en Allemagne, mais aussi plus largement dans le monde entier. Les forêts ne sont pas de
simples fournisseurs de matière première, elles contribuent également de manière essentielle à la protection du climat et
de l'environnement, elles sont d'une grande importance pour la chasse et l'alimentation et sont notamment pour la
population d'une grande valeur récréative et un bien culturel significatif".

Woodland for Water: Woodland measures for meeting Water Framework Directive
objectives - The Forestry Commission - United Kingdom
The Water Framework Directive 2000 (WFD) is a European Directive that seeks to protect,
enhance and restore the condition of all water in the natural environment: including rivers,
lochs, estuaries and coastal waters, as well as water under the ground.
It provides a common framework for addressing human activities that exert “pressures” on
the water environment and has set an objective that all “water bodies” should be restored
to “good status” by 2015.
The majority of water bodies in the UK and in other EU countries currently fail to meet this target status due to a range of
pressures such as diffuse pollution and water abstraction.

Assessing the cultural and spiritual values of European forests - The Forestry Commission United Kingdom
The Social and Economic Research Group at Forest Research was invited to contribute to the 2011 State of
Europe’s Forests report by preparing a data collection protocol, and analysing and reporting on Indicator
6.11 ‘Cultural and spiritual values’, one of 35 Pan-European Indicators of sustainable forest management.
A range of cultural and spiritual values are associated with forested landscapes in Europe, although many
are intangible and difficult to define and assess. Indicator 6.11 seeks to quantify one aspect of these
diverse benefits by reporting the number of sites within forest and other wooded land that are officially
recognised for their cultural or spiritual values. In total, around one million sites were reported across 45 countries, of
which around three-quarters were classed as ‘Cultural heritage’.

La deforestación en la selva del Amazonas ha disminuido en los últimos seis años, pero parece que la tendencia ya no es a

cambio climático. Sin embargo las selvas desempeñan un papel importante en la regulación del clima, la pluviometría y el
suministro de agua de América del Sur. Las selvas amazónicas, sus aguas, su clima y sus sociedades ¿están bajo la

FORESTRY IN A TREELESS LAND - ICELAND
by Throstur Eysteinsson, division chief
Among the first things that visitors to Iceland usually notice are that it is not as warm as where they came from and there
is a lack of forests in the landscape. Logically, they connect these two facts and come to the conclusion that Iceland is too
cold for forests. This impression is often reinforced when they see the “forests” of low-growing and crooked native birch.
However, over a century of forestry activity has proven that this is not the case, that it is past land-use and not climate
that explains the treeless landscape. In fact, forests grow as well in Iceland as they do in parts of the world where forestry
is a major industry.

Changes in plant community composition lag behind climate warming in lowland forests
By Romain Bertrand, Jonathan Lenoir, Christian Piedallu, Gabriela Riofrío-Dillon, Patrice de Ruffray, Claude Vidal, JeanClaude Pierrat & Jean-Claude Gégout
Climate change is driving latitudinal and altitudinal shifts in species distribution worldwide, leading to novel species
assemblages. Lags between these biotic responses and contemporary climate changes have been reported for plants and
animals. Theoretically, the magnitude of these lags should be greatest in lowland areas, where the velocity of climate
change is expected to be much greater than that in highland areas. We compared temperature trends to temperatures
reconstructed from plant assemblages (observed in 76,634 surveys) over a 44-year period in France (1965–2008). Here

Adapting to change: the state of conservation of World Heritage forests in 2011
Publisher: UNESCO - World Heritage Centre
Number Edition: 30
Beyond providing an overview of the state of conservation of World Heritage forests in general, this
publication attempts to provide some welcome thoughts on the relationship between World Heritage
forests and their surrounding landscapes, and on mechanisms that could be applied to ensure that this
relationship is mutually beneficial alongside social, economic and environmental criteria. I am convinced
that the World Heritage Convention can be effectively leveraged to bring about such positive
contributions, and I look forward to seeing tangible results on the ground.

Des cristaux qui augmentent de l'épaisseur d'un cheveu tous les cents ans
Une étude internationale dirigée par le Centre Supérieur de la Recherche Scientifique espagnol (CSIC) a permis de
déterminer la vitesse de croissance des cristaux géants de Naica, dans l'état mexicain de Chihuahua. La croissance de ces
formations est tellement lente qu'elle était presque impossible à mesurer. C'est grâce à un microscope spécial, mis au
point par les espagnols en coopération avec un groupe de recherche de l'université de Sendai au Japon qu'il a été possible
d'estimer que certains cristaux de la grotte se sont formés durant plus d'un million d'années. Ce qui revient à conclure que
ces cristaux de gypse ont grandi au rythme le plus lent jamais connu, soit l'épaisseur d'un cheveu tous les cents ans. Cette
recherche a fait la première page du dernier numéro de la revue Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)…

mesures de surveillance passées et présentes des volcans de la planète. Imaginez un volcan qui montre un regain
d'activité : comment prédire son évolution ? Une réponse précise se base en partie sur les éruptions similaires antérieures.
WOVOdat se propose de mettre à disposition les informations pertinentes concernant des volcans dont les mesures sont
similaires.
Actuellement, si un volcan semble menaçant, il faut chercher dans la littérature pour trouver les informations nécessaires.
Souvent ce travail se révèle trop lent et complexe de part la disparité de l'information et des formats de mesures.

fossiles de plantes datant respectivement de 407 et 397 millions d'années et contenant des traces de bois. Les plus
anciennes jamais mises à jour ! Cette découverte fait ainsi reculer l'apparition du bois sur Terre d'une dizaine de millions

d'augmenter leur résistance et devenir des arbres, mais d'abord pour permettre une meilleure circulation de la sève. Les
résultats de cette recherche ont été publiés dans la revue Science.

Lowland-upland migration of sauropod dinosaurs during the Late Jurassic epoch
By Henry C. Fricke, Justin Hencecroth & Marie E. Hoerner
Sauropod dinosaurs were the largest vertebrates ever to walk the Earth, and as mega-herbivores they were important
parts of terrestrial ecosystems. In the Late Jurassic-aged Morrison depositional basin of western North America, these
animals occupied lowland river- floodplain settings characterized by a seasonally dry climate. Massive herbivores with high
nutritional and water needs could periodically experience nutritional and water stress under these conditions, and thus the
common occurrence of sauropods in this basin has remained a paradox. Energetic arguments and mammalian analogues
have been used to suggest that migration allowed sauropods access to food and water resources over a wide region or
during times of drought or both, but there has been no direct support for these hypotheses. Here we compare oxygen
isotope ratios (δ18O) of tooth-enamel carbonate from the sauropod Camarasaurus with those of ancient soil, lake and
wetland (that is, ‘authigenic’) carbonates that formed in lowland settings. We demonstrate that certain populations of
these animals did in fact undertake seasonal migrations of several hundred kilometres from lowland to upland
environments. This ability to describe patterns of sauropod movement will help to elucidate the role that migration played
in the ecology and evolution of gigantism of these and associated dinosaurs.

mammifères placentaires modernes mais appartiennent à une branche primitive bien antérieure à la naissance de ceux-ci.

Pre-Clovis Mastodon Hunting 13,800 Years Ago at the Manis Site, Washington - Washington State (USA)
By Michael R. Waters, Thomas W. Stafford Jr., H. Gregory McDonald, Carl Gustafson, Morten Rasmussen, Enrico Cappellini,
Jesper V. Olsen, Damian Szklarczyk, Lars Juhl Jensen, M. Thomas P. Gilbert and Eske Willerslev
The tip of a projectile point made of mastodon bone is embedded in a rib of a single disarticulated mastodon at the Manis
site in the state of Washington. Radiocarbon dating and DNA analysis show that the rib is associated with the other
remains and dates to 13,800 years ago. Thus, osseous projectile points, common to the Beringian Upper Paleolithic and
Clovis, were made and used during pre-Clovis times in North America. The Manis site, combined with evidence of
mammoth hunting at sites in Wisconsin, provides evidence that people were hunting proboscideans at least two millennia
before Clovis.

Turismo sostenible y áreas protegidas: una unión exitosa – Carta Europea de
Turismo Sostenible en Espacios Protegidos.
La red de espacios protegidos que participa en la Carta Europa de Turismo Sostenible
en Espacios Protegidos sigue creciendo a un ritmo alarmante. Hoy 89 espacios
protegidos a lo largo de nueve países diferentes están activamente involucrados en el
proceso de la Carta.
Durante el Congreso de EUROPARC 2011 celebrado este año en Bad Urach, 12 espacios
protegidos de Finlandia, Francia, Italia, España, y Reino Unido recibieron la Carta
Europea de Turismo Sostenible después de obtener una evaluación positiva. Además se volvieron a evaluar cinco parques
este año tras sus primeros cinco años de trabajo con la Carta.
El amplio número de espacios que están solicitando la Carta cada año muestra de forma clara el creciente interés por parte
de los espacios protegidos de toda Europa en las acciones de la Carta. Además casi todos los parques galardonados están
solicitando una re-evaluación tras los primeros cinco años de mejoras, y siguen reconociendo la función estratégica de la
Carta para la gestión y el desarrollo de estrategias de turismo sostenible y de acciones en los espacios protegidos.

Celebración del 10° aniversario de la Declaración Universal sobre la Diversidad Cultural en Argentina y
Uruguay (Octubre de 2011)
El Sector de Cultura de la Oficina de la UNESCO en Montevideo conmemora el décimo aniversario de la adopción de la
Declaración Universal de la UNESCO sobre la Diversidad Cultural, la cual representó un punto de inflexión en el modo en el
que la comunidad internacional piensa la cultura, la cooperación y el desarrollo, refutando la teoría del choque de
civilizaciones, y proponiendo una visión alternativa que percibe la diversidad como una fortaleza positiva.
Esta Declaración ha sentado las bases conceptuales para el desarrollo de diversos instrumentos normativos como la
Convención para la Salvaguardia del Patrimonio Cultural Inmaterial (2003) y la Convención para la Protección y Promoción
de la Diversidad de Expresiones Culturales (2005).

Humedales sanos implica gente sana. Y al contrario, unos humedales degradados por las actividades
humanas, especialmente las que hacen que disminuya la calidad y disponibilidad del agua, generalmente
ven mermadas sus capacidades para prestar los servicios de los ecosistemas que, tanto de forma directa
como indirecta, afectan a la salud humana al repercutir, entre otros, en la pérdida de producción de
alimentos y en los medios de vida locales. Los humedales degradados también pueden provocar la
aparición de enfermedades infecciosas y el resurgimiento de enfermedades relacionadas con el agua,
comprometiendo igualmente la salud humana, y pueden hacer que disminuya la disponibilidad de plantas
y animales de los humedales con valores medicinales de particular importancia para las poblaciones indígenas y las
comunidades locales…

Rinocerontes en peligro por demanda de sus cuernos para tratar el cáncer - WWF

Los rinocerontes están en grave peligro por la demanda de sus cuernos, a los que en partes
de Asia se atribuyen propiedades para tratar el cáncer, aunque esto no ha sido probado por
lo que incluso han dejado de ser utilizados como ingrediente en la medicina tradicional
china.
El Fondo Mundial para la Naturaleza (WWF) denunció esta situación tras comprobar que en
los diez primeros meses del año fueron abatidos más rinocerontes en Sudáfrica que durante todo el año pasado.

Consultation Document on Enabling Legislation for National Parks. August 2011
DOE. Department of Environment
Northern Ireland - United Kingdom
In October 2004, the Department published a consultation paper about national parks and other protected landscape
areas. The debate has moved on since then, and the political landscape has changed with the restoration of devolution and
a locally-elected Assembly.
In March 2011, the Department published a White Paper as a first step towards bringing forward enabling legislation to
allow for the creation of national parks in Northern Ireland. At the time the Department said that further material would be
published for consideration during the consultation period.
Accordingly, a new consultation document has now been published. This looks in more detail at the governance options for
a national park and seek answers to a number of specific questions on national park issues with a view to developing policy
proposals for enabling legislation to be brought before the Assembly. For ease of reference, the White Paper has been
included as an appendix.
The consultation document and accompanying letter to consultees are available below. This new document subsumes the
consultation on the White Paper, and the consultation period has been extended to reflect this. Responses are invited by
31st October 2011

Stopping the Rot: A Guide to Enforcement Action to Save Historic Buildings - English Heritage
Keeping historic buildings in good repair and, where possible, in use, is the key to their preservation.
Owners of listed buildings are under no statutory obligation to maintain their property in a good state of
repair, although it is in their interests to do so. Local authorities can, however, take action to secure repair
when it becomes evident that a building is being allowed to deteriorate.
Urgent Works Notices, Repairs Notices and Section 215 Notices can be very effective tools to help secure
the preservation of historic buildings.
This guidance, which supersedes the first edition published in 1999, is designed to help local authorities
make effective use of these powers. It provides step-by-step advice on the use of the main procedures and includes case
studies and a selection of specimen letters, notices, schedules and agreements.

Architecture City Guide: Tel Aviv - Israel
This week our Architecture City Guide is headed to Tel Aviv. Justin Kliger, a local urban
planner and designer and friend of ArchDaily, graciously put together the material for
this week’s guide. As the founder of Architec.tour.a, an architecture tour company in Tel
Aviv , Kliger offered us great insights into the architecture of his city. “Tel Aviv is
covered by a UNESCO world heritage listing as the ‘White City’, the single largest
collection of International Style buildings in one city. In addition, there is a vast amount
of development and construction going on in Tel Aviv. There are a range of interesting
buildings, including many examples of Brutalist buildings, post modernist structures and new cutting edge designs,” says
Kliger. The 12 buildings we feature here only scratch the surface of what Tel Aviv has to offer. We will be adding to the list
in the near future so leave more suggestions in the comment section below.

The Pre-Motor City: As Detroit paves a new economic road forward, an archaeologist
investigates its industrial beginnings - Detroit - Michigan - USA
On a Wednesday afternoon in early June, a white bus with the navy blue logo "Indian Trails"
emblazoned on its side turns off Michigan Avenue onto 16th Street and heads south. At Dalzelle
Street it takes a left and comes to a stop in front of the gutted husk of Michigan Central Station, the
former railway hub for Detroit, once the fourth largest city in the United States. A gaggle of tourists
hops out of the coach and gawks at the 230-foot-tall building, pointing cameras at it and capturing
what has come to be referred to as "ruin porn."

World's oldest known underground carriage to be restored - Heritage Lottery Fund United Kingdom
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has awarded just over £422,000* to restore the world’s
oldest surviving known example of an underground carriage – Metropolitan Railway Carriage
Number 353.
The project will mark the 150th anniversary of London’s Underground – the oldest metro
system in the world – and enable London Transport Museum to restore the carriage to full
working order to become a key feature of the anniversary celebrations in 2013. The
restoration of the historic carriage has been awarded to the Ffestiniog Railway, who are specialists in heritage railway
carriage restorations. HLF will also help fund an apprentice to gain an NVQ Level 2 in Carpentry as part of the project, and
a further 159 participants will be offered the opportunity to work towards a heritage and transport qualification via the
National Open College Network.

Bouncing Back to Life: Restoring the Florida laboratory where Thomas Edison
sought a substitute for rubber - Fort Myers - Florida - USA
In the final years of his life, Thomas Edison searched for an alternative source of rubber with
the same burning intensity he'd demonstrated in pursuit of a reliable light bulb. The locus of
his efforts was a site he called his "jungle," a lush waterfront corner of southwest Florida

Large numbers of visitors flocked to view Murtoa Stick Shed - Victoria - Australia - 2
October 2011
With a huge restoration project all but complete, the Shed drew a huge crowd during the Murtoa
Big Weekend. More than 1250 people visited the Stick Shed on 2 October with visitors coming
from across Victoria and even interstate to view this unusual structure.
Dubbed the 'Cathedral of the Wimmera', the 1941 Murtoa Stick Shed spans the length of five
Olympic swimming pools. It is the last remaining of the sheds constructed in Australia as a
solution for grain storage during the World War II wheat glut.

150 years of the completion of the transcontinental telegraph, a primitive Internet
united the USA
LOS ANGELES (AP).- Long before there was an Internet or an iPad, before people were social
networking and instant messaging, Americans had already gotten wired.
Monday marks the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental telegraph.
From sea to sea, it electronically knitted together a nation that was simultaneously tearing
itself apart, North and South, in the Civil War.
Americans soon saw that a breakthrough in the spread of technology could enhance national
identity and, just as today, that it could vastly change lives.
"It was huge," says Amy Fischer, archivist for Western Union, which strung the line across mountains, canyons and tribal
lands to make the final connection. "... With the Civil War just a few months old, the idea that California, the growing cities
of California, could talk to Washington and the East Coast in real time was huge. It's hard to overstate the impact of that."
On Oct. 24, 1861, with the push of a button, California's chief justice, Stephen J. Field, wired a message from San
Francisco to President Abraham Lincoln in Washington, congratulating him on the transcontinental telegraph's completion
that day. He added the wish that it would be a "means of strengthening the attachment which binds both the East and the
West to the Union."

El Museo curie, donde la historia y la memoria se encuentran - Instituto Curie.
París (Francia)
El Museo Curie está situado en uno de los edificios más antiguos del Instituto Curie. Este
laboratorio fue construido entre 1911 y 1914 por Marie Curie para la Universidad de París y
el Instituto Pasteur. Es en este lugar que los esposos Curie descubrieron el polonio y el radio
en 1898.
Durante casi 20 años, Marie Curie continuó con su trabajo en este laboratorio y fué
igualmente en este lugar que Irene y Frédéric Joliot-Curie, su hija y su yerno, ganaron el
Premio Nobel de Química en 1935 por el descubrimiento de la radiactividad artificial.
El Museo Curie es a la vez un museo de historia de la ciencia y un lugar de memoria. Se compone de un espacio de
exposición permanente y tiene registros históricos tales como la documentación sobre la historia de los Curie y Joliot-Curie
y también sobre la historia de la radiactividad y el cáncer.

English Heritage launches Industrial Heritage at Risk project - United Kingdom
Listed industrial buildings are more at risk than almost any other kind of heritage, according to a
major research project carried out by English Heritage. You can find out more about the threats to
our industrial heritage in this section, as well as how to get involved in rescuing it, re- using it and
caring for it. So, whether you are an owner or a developer, whether you are involved in a local trust
or whether you just want to find out about industrial buildings with a connection to your family, we
hope you find something relevant and inspiring.

La "piedra de sol", el secreto de los vikingos para guiar su nave
La legendaria "piedra de sol" que habría permitido, según las sagas nórdicas, a los navegantes vikingos
orientarse incluso en tiempo nublado no es una simple leyenda, aseguran investigadores en un estudio
publicado hoy.
Los vikingos eran conocidos por ser navegantes consumados, capaces de navegar miles de kilómetros
en el mar en dirección de Islandia y Groenlandia. Incluso descubrieron sin duda América del Norte
alrededor del año 1000, mucho antes que Cristóbal Colón. Pero su capacidad para navegar sin brújula
en tan largas distancias e incluso en condiciones climáticas muy adversas (noche polar, nieve, etc.),
sigue siendo un misterio.

Con los científicos del consorcio Oceans hemos establecido una expedición muy profesional.
Puede darse una sensación de rutina para los que nos siguen, pero eso es lo mejor de lo que
se pueda desear a una misión oceanográfica

Biodiversidad Marina y de Costas
Me siento siempre feliz de hablar con los científicos que están sorprendidos por la aventura
que es Tara Oceans. La gran mayoría del tesoro les pertenece ahora, les espera un trabajo considerable para obtener
resultados. Lo que nos anima es la expectativa del público en general para aprender aún más y su disposición a aprender
de los científicos. Aprovecho esta oportunidad para agradecer a la tripulación que ha trabajado incansablemente durante
más de dos años y a los científicos a bordo y en tierra.

Estudio del riesgo tiburones en la Isla de La Reunión - Francia
En la isla de La Reunión acaba de iniciarse una operación de marcado de tiburones. Se produce en el marco
del proyecto "CHARC - Conocimiento de la ecología y del hábitat de dos especies de tiburones costeros en
la costa oeste de La Reunión".
Este proyecto se propone estudiar la ecología de dos especies de tiburones costeros de la reunión, el
tiburón Tigre y el tiburón Bulldog (probablemente las especies más abundantes), a partir de marcadores
electrónicos, para definir las características de sus respectivos hábitats (micro-hábitats) y su distribución
espacial y temporal en estos micro-hábitats.

Nouvelle campagne de mesure : la mer de Barents serait propre et riche
Les dernières données environnementales mesurées dans la Mer de Barents montrent que ses eaux seraient riches et
relativement peu polluées.
La campagne de mesure de cette année a été conduite par un groupe de surveillance environnementale composé d'experts
et dirigé par l'IMR (institut de recherche marine). Les résultats sont diffusés par miljøstatus (portail gouvernemental de
diffusion de l'information environnementale). Des campagnes de mesure de la pollution sont menées dans la mer de
Norvège et la mer de Barents depuis plus de 30 ans. "Nous suivons de près l'évolution des éléments polluants dans la mer
de Barents. Certains restent très longtemps dans l'écosystème et peuvent ainsi s'accumuler dans la chaîne alimentaire et
remonter jusqu'aux grands animaux et à l'être humain. Nous travaillons pour une règlementation internationale plus
stricte.", explique Ellen Hambro, directrice de KLIF (agence norvégienne de contrôle du climat et de la pollution).

Deep water coral found in unexplored canyons off the South West continental shelf of
Europe
A team of Irish and UK Marine scientists discovered the cold water coral, Lophelia pertusa, in
unexplored deep sea canyons 400km south of Cork on the edge of the European continental shelf
during a recent MESH (Mapping European Seabed Habitats) survey on the Irish national RV Celtic
Explorer. Deep water camera equipment was used to capture images of the seafloor in water up
to 1km deep, where pressure is 100 times greater than surface pressure. Cameras also captured
evidence of the impact of fishing on the mound forming coral, as trawl marks in the seabed and
discarded fishing nets and ropes were encountered on a number of occasions.

3era edición: Día Internacional de Limpieza de Costas 2011 - Uruguay - 12 de Noviembre de 2011
Bolsas de supermercado… colillas de cigarro… papeles de caramelos. No caen del cielo, caen de nuestras manos. Y lo que
el mar arrastra a la costa es solamente una fracción de lo que termina en el agua, amenazando la vida marina y dañando
los ecosistemas, día a día, todos los días.
El Día Internacional de Limpieza de Costas es un evento que se realiza desde 1986 que tiene lugar en más de cien países
alrededor del mundo. Cada año, cientos de miles de voluntarios pasan un día recolectando basura en sus playas locales
como una demostración de su compromiso con la limpieza de la línea de costa y océano adyacente. El Programa EcoPlata
trae por tercer año consecutivo este evento a Uruguay, sirviendo como coordinador nacional para el Día Internacional de
Limpieza de Costas.

The Exploration of Subglacial Lake Ellsworth - Antarctica
More than one hundred and forty five subglacial lakes have been discovered beneath the Antarctic
ice sheet. These lakes have been isolated from the surface for considerable periods of time and each
represents a unique environment. Life in subglacial lakes must adapt to total darkness, low nutrient
levels, high water pressures and isolation from the atmosphere. Subglacial lakes thus represent
unique biological habitats…

Museum of the Fromelles Fight - SERERO Architectes - Fromelles - Nord France
The architecture of the Museum of Fromelles, designed by SERERO Architectes, is aiming
at establishing a link between sky and earth, between visitors and the “burial” of
soldiers. This is a building with a low profile, which is half-sunk on its northeast facade.
The work on natural topography has helped to improve the natural slope of the site and
cover, partially, the technical space of the museum. More images and architects’
description after the break.
Only the volume containing the exhibition spaces emerges from the landscape, indicating the trace of a burial. This
emergence is in concrete, which evokes the stacking of successive geological stratifications and different types of soil in the
basement. The museum is gradually revealed to people accessing the site, with its low profile, which is respectful of the
presence of the adjacent cemetery.

Nearly four decades after, landmark Hanoi Hotel
unearths Vietnam War bunker
HANOI (AP).- The siren's wail at the historic Metropole Hotel
sent American folk singer Joan Baez and other guests
scampering across a garden and into an underground bunker.
Even through five feet of concrete, they could still hear the
roar of American bombs raining on parts of Hanoi.
Nearly four decades have passed since the so-called
Christmas Bombings rocked parts of Vietnam's capital in December 1972. After the war ended three years later, the
bunker was sealed and all but forgotten.
Its exact location remained a mystery until this summer, when a worker's drill pierced its thick concrete roof during
renovations of a poolside bar. Since then, workers have been excavating the flooded and low-ceilinged space. Not much
has been found in the seven rooms: a wine bottle, a rusty paint can and a light bulb still in a socket. But a few tales
remain, some involving famous guests.
"If these walls could talk, they would tell a lot of stories," says hotel general manager Kai Speth, while giving The
Associated Press an exclusive first glimpse. The bomb shelter "needs to be brought back into the life of the hotel as a
reminder of what this hotel and this town went through."

Viking boat burial find is United Kingdom mainland first - Ardnamurchan
Transitions Project - Scotland - United Kingdom
The 5m-long grave contained the remains of a high status Viking, who was buried with an
axe, a sword with a beautifully decorated hilt, a spear, shield boss and bronze ring-pin.
The Viking had been buried in a ship, whose 200 or so metal rivets were also found by the
team.
The 1,000-year-old find, on the remote Ardnamurchan Peninsula, was made by the
Ardnamurchan Transitions Project (ATP) which is a team led by experts from the Universities
of Manchester, Leicester, CFA Archaeology Ltd and Archaeology Scotland
Funded this season by The University of Manchester, Newcastle University and The Leverhulme Trust, the project brings
together students and academics at what may be one of Britain’s most significant Viking sites.

Museo Marítimo Nacional de Ámsterdam reabre sus puertas - Países Bajos
El Museo Marítimo Nacional de Ámsterdam ha reabierto sus puertas después de cuatro años de renovación. El museo, que
tenía una imagen anticuada y decadente, ahora se presenta fresco y moderno, diseñado para público de muy diversa
procedencia.
“Está construido para atraer no solamente a los amantes de la navegación”, dice el director Willem Bijleveld, “pero también
para families, niños de colegios, y gente que nunca visitó un museo anteriormente.” Hay varias muestras interactivas y los
visitantes pueden sentir, literalmente, el glorioso pasado marítimo de Holanda.
La renovación del musero costó 58 millones de euros y fue sufragada por dos ministerios. El diseño del interior, que costó
17,5 millones, fue financiado exclusivamente con capitales privados y mecenas individuales.

Playing with fire: struggling with ‘experience’ and ‘play’ in war tourism
Mads Daugbjerg
In Museum and society, Mar 2011. 9(1) 17-33 © 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
This paper takes up the ambiguities of embracing ‘experiential’ and ‘playful’ ways of learning at war sites. It takes as its
point of departure the widespread tendencies in the heritage industry to align communication to new emotional and playful
ways of learning about the past and goes on to demonstrate and discuss how these assert themselves at a specific Danish
war site. The links between the concepts of heritage, experience, romanticism and nationalism are investigated with
historical reference to the Scandinavian open air museology and theoretical inspiration drawn from Scott Lash and his
notion of a ‘second’ modernity. It is argued that the current obsession with ‘experience’ in the heritage sector displays a
range of neo-romantic traits. At the Danish centre, staff and visitors are shown to negotiate and struggle to ‘balance off’
their playful and romantic engagements
against more distanced, non-involved stances towards the war past.

Happy Birthday Le Corbusier!
Today marks the Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier’s birthday. Noted as one of the pioneers of
modern architecture, Le Corbusier’s architecture career spanned some five decades. Born in 1887, which
would make him 124 today, Charles-Édouard Jeanneret adopted the pseudonym Le Corbusier in the
1920s. Known for both his architecture and furniture design you can visit the Galerie Anton Meier where
some of Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret furniture is currently on a special exhibit. More of ArchDaily’s
coverage on Le Corbusier, books, buildings, and articles can be found here.

World Monuments Fund 2012 Endangered Monuments Watch includes two iconic New
York buildings - New York State - USA
The World Monuments Fund calls for international awareness to the 2012 list of endangered
monuments. The watch encompasses 67 threatened cultural-heritage sites worldwide. These
influential landmarks include the iconic Manufacturers Trust Company Building in New York City
designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Paul Rudolph’s Orange County
Government Center in Goshen, New York.
The former 1950’s Manufactures Trust Bank exemplifies mid-century modern architecture
situated on one of the busiest streets of Manhattan. The glass and aluminum façade abandoned the traditional “fortress”

transparency in banking. In 1997, the building was designated a New York City landmark and in early 2011 received
protection for the modern interiors designed by Eleanor H. Le Maire. The current owners are adapting the building for reuse
and altering the interior features, endangering the iconic bond between the exterior and interior.

Le cabanon Le Corbusier - Roquebrune - France
Réalisé en 1952 le Cabanon occupe une place à part dans l’œuvre de Le Corbusier. Une historiographie classique en a
rarement fait état, ou très succinctement. Et bien qu’il soit devenu une sorte de lieu de pèlerinage, régulièrement
fréquenté par quelques admirateurs du Maître, ses caractéristiques demeurent méconnues.
Sans doute, cela tient-il à la modestie du projet. C’est une petite baraque, dont le bardage en croûte de pin fait davantage
penser aux représentations de la ”cabane au Canada” qu’à une approche moderne du projet architectural. L’intérieur
regroupe quand à lui, dans une quinzaine de mètres carrés, deux lits, une table, quelques rangements, un lavabo et un
WC. Par l’une des deux fenêtres on aperçoit la plage où Le Corbusier se noya au mois d’août 1965.

AWARDS - Transboundary Protected Area Award 2011 - Krkonoše National Park
(Czech Republic) and Karkonosze National Park (Poland)
At the EUROPARC Conference 2011 two transboundary protected area complexes were
awarded their transboundary parks certificate after five years successful work with the
programme. Dr Arnold Boer member of the STEC (steering group of the transboundary
evaulation committee) very kindly conducted the award certificate with them being given my
new President Thomas Hansson.
Krkonoše National Park (CZ) and Karkonosze National Park (PL) were the first complex to be
rewarded the Transboudary “Following Natures design” certificate this year, after a successful re-revaluation of their
Transboundary co-operation. Both parks share a common commitment to visitor management across their fragile central
European mountain range, have shared planning and staff collaboration and exemplify the international cooperation upon
which the EUROPAR Federation was founded…

What influences climate and glacier change in southwestern China?
By Teppei J Yasunari
The subject of climate change in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) and Himalayas has taken on increasing importance because of
the availability of water resources from their mountain glaciers (Immerzeel et al 2010). Many of the glaciers over these
regions have been retreating, while some are advancing and stable (Yao et al 2004, Scherler et al 2011). Other studies
report that some glaciers in the Himalayas show acceleration of their shrinkage (e.g., Fujita and Nuimura 2011). However,
the causes of glacier melting are still difficult to grasp because of the complexity of climatic change and its influence on
glacier issues. Despite this, it is vital that we pursue further study to enable future predictions of glacier changes…

intervention in the old Banco Nacional Ultramarino building on Rua Augusta, situated at the
heart of Lisbon’s historic city center.
The building was designed by the architect Cristino da Silva (initiated in 1952) and was
characterised by a ground floor, entirely dedicated to client service with a strong urban
relationship to the streets surrounding the building and, most importantly, an atmosphere
distinguished by the solid nature of the materials used and the sophistication of the construction undertaken. This was the
most Viennese of Lisbon banks, with a stone counter capable of defining the design of the entire space in itself and an
interrupted interior that reveals the proportions of the building block from the inside.

Museum of the Fromelles Fight - SERERO Architectes - Fromelles - Nord France
The architecture of the Museum of Fromelles, designed by SERERO Architectes, is aiming
at establishing a link between sky and earth, between visitors and the “burial” of
soldiers. This is a building with a low profile, which is half-sunk on its northeast facade.
The work on natural topography has helped to improve the natural slope of the site and
cover, partially, the technical space of the museum. More images and architects’
description after the break.
Only the volume containing the exhibition spaces emerges from the landscape, indicating the trace of a burial. This
emergence is in concrete, which evokes the stacking of successive geological stratifications and different types of soil in the
basement. The museum is gradually revealed to people accessing the site, with its low profile, which is respectful of the
presence of the adjacent cemetery.

Site management and building form reflect the flamenco spirit. Interior and exterior spaces of ISMOF building were created
through the sculptural interpretation of the theme. Building solid responds to diverse height of the terrain – it rises and
falls like a sinusoidal diagram of dynamic sound waves. On the ground floor which is canopied by sails vaults an extensive
square is located – a foreground for internal building program. Space areas are divided only by glass sheets. As a result
internal and external spaces penetrate themselves flowing under vaults of expressive canopies.

Dallas Museum of Art Reunites a Pair of Vernet Masterpieces After 200 Years - Dallas - Texas - USA
Two landscape paintings by eighteenth-century French master Claude-Joseph Vernet have been reunited for the first time
in more than 200 years at the Dallas Museum of Art. Commissioned in 1774 at the height of Vernet’s career by famous
English collector Lord Lansdowne, the two large-scale paintings depict the complementary scenes of unruly rustic
landscape and tranquil seaport. The duo, A Mountain Landscape with an Approaching Storm and A Grand View of the Sea
Shore, hung together in the collector’s home, Lansdowne House, Berkeley Square, London, until his death, when the
paintings were sold to separate private collections in 1806.

Museum Folkwang - David Chipperfield - Essen - Germany
“Ruhr.2010 – European Capital of Culture” is the name of the project with which Essen and the
Ruhr are confronting changing times. The “Pott”, as the area is affectionately known in Germany,
is shaking off its coal-and-steel-producing past and mutating into a “new-style polycentric
cultural metropolis”. A high-flying objective. But one that nevertheless appears to be achievable
– certainly as long as the route is paved with milestones like the new Museum Folkwang building
inaugurated at the beginning of 2010.
The source of this particular milestone is British star architect David Chipperfield, who has
achieved great familiarity – not only within the architectural world – with projects such as his recent restoration of the New
Museum in Berlin. His speciality: “feeling his way into” existing structures that invariably enjoy his deepest respect. He has
again been able to put this speciality through its paces with the new Folkwang Museum building. The period museum built
in 1960, which is now linked to the new structure by means of two glass crossovers, was the point of departure for the
entire planning procedure; the extension built in 1983 and so unloved locally had to go.

New York State Museum study suggest wolves migrating East - New York - New
York State - USA
KUNZELSAU.- The fascinations of the forest! Hardly another subject in art history can match
the forest for expressive potential and a concomitant multiplicity of meanings. As a favourite
setting for fairy tales, forests formed an essential projection screen during childhood. The
mostly young heroes and heroines went astray there, encountered unusual creatures, were
transformed, enchanted, or gobbled up, only to prevail in the end. The phantasmagorical
ideas of Romantic painters, writers, and composers still move us in the twenty-first century
and have become embedded in our feeling and thinking. Doesn't a stroll in the woods still hold the promise of time to think
and recuperate from humdrum life?
In the course of the nineteenth century, Romantic ideas spread so rapidly and widely that something known as the
"scientific forest aesthetic" emerged. Woods developed from "untamed wilderness" to sites for an enjoyment of nature and
finally into "suburban recreation areas" or even city parks designed to soothe the eye with subtle gradations of green, in

Art Gallery of South Australia to host major Turner exhibition in 2013 - Adelaide - South Australia - Australia
The Hon Mike Rann MP today announced that the Art Gallery of South Australia will host a significant exhibition of the work
of iconic British artist J. M. W. Turner. The exhibition, scheduled for February 2013, is being jointly curated by Tate and the
Art Gallery of South Australia and includes many of the artist’s most familiar oil paintings and watercolours as well as
works that have never been previously exhibited.
Turner – the Makings of a Master draws from the finest and most comprehensive collection of the artist’s work - the Turner
Bequest. There is arguably no greater insight into the working techniques of a great artist than this unique collection,
bequeathed to the people of Britain after Turner’s death in 1851 and held by the Tate.
Art Gallery of South Australia Director, Nick Mitzevich said “This spectacular exhibition reveals why Turner is regarded as
one of the greatest landscape painters of all time.”

Abu Dhabi firm backtracks on Guggenheim contract, raising questions about the
future - United Arab Emirates
DUBAI (AP).- The Abu Dhabi company building a branch of the Guggenheim museum in the
Emirati capital said Sunday it has temporarily dropped plans to award a major construction
contract, raising questions about the future of the high profile project.
The state-run Tourism Development and Investment Co. said it recalled the tender for
concrete work on the Frank Gehry-designed museum because it is reviewing its strategy for
handing out jobs to contractors. It didn't say when it would again seek bids.
The Guggenheim is one of the showcase museums TDIC is building on Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Island, a planned cultural
district overlooking the Persian Gulf. The island is also slated to contain a national museum, performing arts center and a
branch of the Louvre.
A spokeswoman insisted Sunday that the Guggenheim project is still moving ahead, but didn't provide details.

Abu Dhabi developer vows to open Louvre Museum branch designed by Jean
Nouvel in late 2013 - Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates
DUBAI (AP).- The Abu Dhabi developer building a vast cultural district in the Emirati capital
said Monday a branch of the famed Louvre museum will open there in late 2013, despite
questions about the timetable for another part of the project.
The Tourism Development and Investment Co. told The Associated Press that a branch of
the Parisian art institution will be the first museum to open in the Saadiyat Island cultural
district, a year behind schedule. Plans originally called for a 2012 opening date.
TDIC's comments came a day after the state-run developer disclosed it had dropped a tender seeking bids for major
construction work on a branch of the Guggenheim Museum, raising questions about that project's future.

The developer insisted that all projects on the island will be completed, however.
"TDIC continuously monitors the delivery of its projects to ensure they remain on schedule, within budget and that TDIC's
high standards are upheld throughout the process. TDIC is moving forward as planned with all of its announced projects
including all the projects on Saadiyat," the company said in response to questions from the AP.
TDIC said work on the Louvre is "progressing as planned," with initial ground preparation and design work already
complete.
Officials at the Louvre in Paris referred questions about the project to the Agence France- Museums, or the French
Museums Agency, which was set up to coordinate to coordinate France's involvement with the project. No one there could
be reached for comment.

Tel Aviv Museum of Art doubles size with addition by Preston Scott Cohen - Tel Aviv Israel
Forty years after the architectural competition that preceded the construction of the present
abode of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Museum announced, in 2002, a competition for the
planning of a new building of about 19,000 m2, enabled by a donation from Herta and Paul
Amir, Los Angeles.
Preston Scott Cohen's horizontal "radiator" model came a long way since its first presentation
to the judges of the competition. The need to orchestrate programmatic necessities with the
site brought Cohen to create an object combined of a complex array of spaces…

Center for Chinese Studies at University of Michigan rediscovers rare Chinese art
collection - Ann Arbor - Michigan - USA
Propaganda pieces produced in China four decades ago during the Cultural Revolution have
been unearthed in a storage room at the University of Michigan — a rare find in either the U.
S. or its country of origin, experts said.
The rediscovery of the 15 poster-sized papercut images illustrating the political upheaval of
the era is a pleasant surprise to scholars studying a society that was largely closed off from
the West. The images are cut out of red paper in the same way that artists customarily
create decorations for Chinese New Year celebrations and other festivities. They include glowing portrayals of late Chinese
leader Mao Zedong and Red Guards burning books and trampling on a Buddhist statute.

Police recover 2 stolen paintings by Dutch masters and return them to Hofje van
Mevrouw van Aerden museum - Leerdam - The Netherlands
Police recovered two stolen paintings by Dutch masters and handed them back Thursday to
the provincial museum they were stolen from five months ago. Three suspects are in
custody, police said.
The 17th-century paintings, a depiction of two laughing boys by Frans Hals and a forest
landscape by Jacob van Ruisdael, were snatched from the Hofje van Mevrouw van Aerden
museum in the central town of Leerdam in late May.
The thieves triggered a burglar alarm, but had fled the building before police arrived. A search of the area immediately
after the theft turned up only the frame of one of the paintings that had been dumped in a hedge.
A new tip about the paintings' whereabouts led to their discovery on Oct. 28, police said in a statement. A fourth suspect is
on the run, police said.
Police have not estimated the value of the paintings, but called them valuable parts of the country's "cultural heritage."

The Mediations of climate change: museums as citizens’ media
Juan Francisco Salazar (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 123-135, 2011
ISSN 1479-8360
Social research underlines how the mass media frames and presents environmental change and risk in ways that become
contested cultural constructs embedded in deep ideological structures. While significant attention has concentrated on the
mass media, less consideration has been given to examining the role of museums and science centres in communicating
the science of climate change. The article looks at museums as cultural brokers in collaborative efforts around public
understandings of climate change.
Engaging with recent conceptualizations around citizens and public media practices, it proposes participatory design
mechanisms through which the museum sector can act as change-agents in fostering a new form of public pedagogy that
incorporates differing civic epistemologies around climate change education and action.

New Report: Arts Philanthropy Not Doing Enough to Reach Poor and Minority Populations
Fusing Arts, Culture & Social Change
By Holly Sidford
National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy: October, 2011
America’s dynamic arts and culture landscape continues to evolve along with the changing needs and
demographics of our communities. Yet, findings from a new report show that a majority of U.S.
foundations that provide financial support to arts and cultural institutions have largely ignored these
changes in their giving, according to the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP)

Museums and science centres as sites for deliberative democracy on climate change
Fiona Cameron (University of Western Sydney); Ann Deslandes ( Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 136-153, 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
This paper addresses the position of the museum sector in relation to public policy-making about climate change. It is
informed by the perspectives of museum and science centre visitors and leaders canvassed as part of the Australian
Research Council Linkage project, ‘Hot Science, Global Citizens: the agency of the museum sector in climate change
interventions’. We apply complexity theory to evaluate the claim that museums are a site for the enaction of deliberative
democracy. In doing so, we reveal a cultural opportunity for cultural institutions to play a more expansive and explicit role
in brokering social futures for communities confronted by climate change.

Museums and attacks from cyberspace: Non-linear communication in a postmodern world
Bob Hodge (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 107-122, 2011
ISSN 1479-8360
This article examines a single virtual incident, a hostile review by climatechange sceptic journalist Andrew Bolt of an
Australian Museum exhibition on climate change, to explore its implications for contemporary museums curating
controversial topics. It takes both topic and attack as aspects of new conditions which science and museums alike must
cope with, which include new concepts of science and society, and new communication technologies. It uses the concept of
the ‘postmodern condition’ as a framework for understanding some crucial features of these new conditions. It sees
traditional linear models of communication as dangerously limited ways for museums to operate effectively in this new
highly complex and unpredictable environment. It finds that some aspects of this Exhibition had an underlying linearity
that left it especially open to the attack it received, while other aspects incorporated an effective complexity that better
fulfilled its aims. Yet the analysis does not offer complete safety against such attacks. On the contrary, part of the danger
exposed in this analysis comes from new ‘postmodern’ levels of irrationality and lack of respect for science legitimated by
the claims of these critics to be defenders of reason and science.

From mitigation to creativity: the agency of museums and science centres and the means to govern climate
change
Fiona Cameron (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 90-106, 2011
ISSN 1479-8360
Climate change as a complex, scientific, cultural, ideological, and transnational issue poses a new set of challenges for
museums and science centres as places to inform, and as information sources in debates and decision processes.
In this paper, I draw on quantitative and qualitative research from the Australian Research Council funded Linkage project,
Hot Science, Global Citizens: the agency of the museum sector in climate change interventions, to interrogate the
potentialities for institutions to operate meaningfully and in new ways in complex media ecologies and dense mediations of
political, social, scientific discourses, and expertize. In developing the concepts liquid governmentalities and liquid
museums, I pose new leverage points for institutions to operate within these pluralistic and complex governmental

Looking from above: saying and doing in the history museums of Latin America
Marisa González de Oleaga (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, Spain); María Silvia Di Liscia (Universidad
Nacional de La Pampa, Argentina); Ernesto Bohoslavsky (Universidad Nacional General Sarmiento, Argentina)
In Museum and society, Mar 2011. 9(1) 49-76 © 2011
ISSN 1479-8360
What functions might the history museum fulfill in the twenty-first century? How could this powerful ideological device, so
closely linked in its origins to the nationstate and neo-colonial expansion, be changed into an instrument of multicultural
citizenship? In some Latin American museums, new historical subjects and audio-visual media have been incorporated into
the exhibits. But, is that enough?
We do not believe so, because things are said in a museum, but things are also done while speaking: reality is ordered,
evaluated and hierarchized, so that a certain way of conceiving and being in the world is conveyed. Therefore, making the
museum suitable to the new needs of the community demands changes not only in what is said, but also in the way it is
said. It serves little to incorporate new social subjects (the native peoples of Latin America, for example) if this inclusion
results from a pejorative conception of these communities, which is just what happens in the Museum of America in
Madrid, where the Spanish appear as masters of the word while the indigenous people are represented by ceramic vessels.
If, in the accounts of the museums, the part continues to be taken for the whole by essentializing and naturalizing the
difference, then those other social subjects must appear to be merely a historical afterthought. It seems to us that the
performative dimension of the discourse in the museum is a very important aspect at the moment its function in the new
global society is evaluated. We propose two objectives for new museums: serving the purposes of multicultural
coexistence, and being spaces where the subjects may examine their social situation. In order to do this, we have analyzed
the setup of three museums: a
colonial museum (the Museum of America in Madrid), a national museum (the National Historical Museum in Buenos Aires),
and an ethnic museum (the Mennonite Jacob Unger Museum in the Paraguayan Chaco).

Miniatures of the nation: ethnic minority figurines, mannequins and dioramas in Chinese museums
By Marzia Varutti
In Museum and society, Mar 2011. 9(1) 1-16 © 2011
ISSN 1479-836
This paper uses Chinese ethnic minority museums as case study to reflect on the significance of the use of figurines,
mannequins and dioramas as modes of representation of individuals and collectivities in museums. By proposing the
concept of miniature and exploring its diverse facets and conceptual implications in the context of specific examples of
museum displays of Chinese ethnic minorities, the analysis reveals how specific museological practices and display
supports – such as mannequins, dioramas, figurines and maps – enable the reduction and containment of cultural
difference.

Museums and a common world: climate change, cosmopolitics, museum practice
Ben Dibley (University of Western Sydney)
In Museum and society, Jul 2011. 9(2) 154-165, 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
At stake in this paper is the nature of the relationship between the institution of the museum and the common world. It is
contended that such relations are regularly asserted through cosmopolitan appeals, which are premised on the assumption
that a cosmos, a world, a universal, pre-exists its articulation, and, that it is the task of reason and of science to adjust the
citizen-subject to this already-present condition. This paper argues that this is a flawed position because it assumes, in
fact, what is required to be built: a world in common.
In defence of this proposition, two recent declarations of museum cosmopolitanism are explored: ICOM’s declaration on the
‘universal museum’, which focuses on the unity of the cultural heritage of humankind; and the Buffon Declaration, which
concerns institutions of natural history and the imperilment of humanity’s biospheric inheritance. Subsequently, the paper
turns to what might be called the empirics of the cosmopolitanism of the museum visitor.
This examines the qualitative investigation of banal or everyday cosmopolitanism, which is largely ignored by such
museum declarations.
These different museological articulations of a common world are, in turn, reviewed through the juxtaposition of two
sociologies: Ulrich Beck’s cosmopolitanism and Bruno Latour’s compositionism. It is in contrasting these various
mobilizations of the cosmopolitan – the museological, the empirical and the sociological – that the paper advances its
proposition:
namely, that these cosmopolitan claims are based on the assumption that a common world exists prior to its assemblage
as such.

Musées et développement durable : comment s'emparer de cette problématique ? Quelles sont ses actions
dans ce domaine ? A quels niveaux se situent-elles ?
Issu d'une collaboration entre la France et le Québec, ouvert sur l'international, cet ouvrage rassemble des
études de cas et les soumet aux analyses croisées de professionnels des musées et de chercheurs en
muséologie. Il aborde de manière pragmatique les questions d'architecture et de conception des expositions, au travers de
l'ecodesign ; il interroge les modes de sensibilisation des publics et les dispositifs de médiation ; il tire les conséquences de
l'application du développement durable aux modes de gestion des établissements. En situant les initiatives contemporaines
dans une généalogie des actions passées, ce recueil rend compte des démarches entreprises en la matière, et fournit des
clefs pour (ré)inventer les pratiques muséales à l'aune du développement durable. Photos et schémas viennent illustrer ces
développements.

Pesticidas ecológicos y de origen local - República Checa
Un gran número de plantas son capaces de soportar ciertas molestias sin tener que utilizar repelentes. Esta capacidad es la
base de un proyecto llevado a cabo por químicos y botánicos checos. Si bien es cierto que ya se encuentran en el mercado
insecticidas basados en extractos de plantas, en general están hechos a partir de plantas tropicales. Los científicos checos
pretenden desarrollar productos obtenidos a partir de plantas que crecen en sus latitudes. "Los colinabos necesitan la
ayuda que puede proporcionarles la lavanda, los pimientos la de la ajedrea".

Gestión voluntaria en los parques Europeos – GRUNDTVIG Acuerdo
para el Aprendizaje Permanente
Los espacios protegidos necesitan que las comunidades locales y sus
accionistas se involucren más en su gestión. Una gran forma de hacer esto
es mediante el voluntariado. Este proyecto ofrece una oportunidad de valor
incalculable para avanzar en las aproximaciones existentes para el
Aprendizaje Permanente a través del voluntariado en la conservación a
nivel europeo y para encontrar formas de consolidar éstas aproximaciones
como parte integral de la gestión voluntaria de los espacios protegidos.
El nivel de gestión voluntaria en los parques europeos varía dependiendo de los países y los parques. Por ello, los socios
del proyecto pretenden diseminar la innovación y las buenas prácticas en el ámbito de gestión voluntaria y desarrollar de
forma colectiva medidas innovadoras que aumenten las oportunidades de aprendizaje en el contexto del voluntariado.

Turismo sostenible y áreas protegidas: una unión exitosa – Carta Europea de
Turismo Sostenible en Espacios Protegidos.
La red de espacios protegidos que participa en la Carta Europa de Turismo Sostenible
en Espacios Protegidos sigue creciendo a un ritmo alarmante. Hoy 89 espacios
protegidos a lo largo de nueve países diferentes están activamente involucrados en el
proceso de la Carta.
Durante el Congreso de EUROPARC 2011 celebrado este año en Bad Urach, 12 espacios
protegidos de Finlandia, Francia, Italia, España, y Reino Unido recibieron la Carta
Europea de Turismo Sostenible después de obtener una evaluación positiva. Además se volvieron a evaluar cinco parques
este año tras sus primeros cinco años de trabajo con la Carta.
El amplio número de espacios que están solicitando la Carta cada año muestra de forma clara el creciente interés por parte
de los espacios protegidos de toda Europa en las acciones de la Carta. Además casi todos los parques galardonados están
solicitando una re-evaluación tras los primeros cinco años de mejoras, y siguen reconociendo la función estratégica de la
Carta para la gestión y el desarrollo de estrategias de turismo sostenible y de acciones en los espacios protegidos.

COMPETITION - Parks for the People: A Student Competition to Reimagine America's National Parks - Deadline
for proposals 1 November 2011
Parks for the People is a design competition that will reimagine America's most spectacular public places — its national
parks — by using design as a catalyst to creatively rethink their connections to people and their role as revered natural,
social, and cultural destinations.
As a culminating project of Designing the Parks — a partnership to promote well-designed public parks in America — Parks
for the People invites student and faculty teams to help build a common foundation of design principles for these
extraordinary sites as the U.S. National Park Service embarks upon a new century of park design.
Participating schools will work with park administrators to create model solutions for seven park sites in each geographic
region of the U.S., and use these design paradigms to create a stronger national identity for our open space ideals.
Throughout the competition, schools will have an opportunity to engage with the Park Service and its rich cultural and
historic assets, including access to park leadership, in-depth encounters with park sites, and the chance to build long-term
relationships with park staff and resources.

At the EUROPARC Conference 2011 two transboundary protected area complexes were
awarded their transboundary parks certificate after five years successful work with the
programme. Dr Arnold Boer member of the STEC (steering group of the transboundary
evaulation committee) very kindly conducted the award certificate with them being given my
new President Thomas Hansson.
Krkonoše National Park (CZ) and Karkonosze National Park (PL) were the first complex to be
rewarded the Transboudary “Following Natures design” certificate this year, after a successful re-revaluation of their
Transboundary co-operation. Both parks share a common commitment to visitor management across their fragile central
European mountain range, have shared planning and staff collaboration and exemplify the international cooperation upon
which the EUROPAR Federation was founded…

Parc national des Calanques : L'enquête publique est lancée : donnez votre avis ! - France
C’est une immense satisfaction pour moi et pour tous ceux qui m’accompagnent depuis près de douze années, de voir
s’ouvrir pour un mois l’enquête publique pour le Parc national des Calanques.
Cette séquence déterminante est le point d’orgue d’une procédure de création certes complexe et longue, mais nécessaire,
puisque garante d’une réelle démocratie de proximité, d’une transparence constante et du souci de l’intérêt général.

Misurare e comunicare il valore dei parchi, ottimo successo del seminario di Federparchi a Pisa (14-16
September 2011)
Oggi, ancor più che in passato, è sempre più pressante la necessità di rendere il lavoro dei parchi tanto più possibile
trasparente sul piano politico e amministrativo quanto misurabile secondo criteri uniformi di efficacia gestionale.
Sull’importanza di ribadire non solo il valore delle aree naturali protette, ma avere anche le capacità per comunicarlo in
modo efficace, si è basato il seminario dal titolo “Misurare e comunicare il valore prodotto dal Sistema parchi in Italia”
organizzato da Federparchi – Europarc Italia con la collaborazione di Refe – Strategie di sviluppo responsabile, che si è
tenuto dal 14 al 16 settembre 2011, presso il Centro Studi Valerio Giacomini nel parco regionale Migliarino San Rossore

Eight new nature parks in Switzerland
The first national park in the Alps was established in the Engadine in 1914. Since then there
have been very few efforts in Switzerland to create other protected areas.
But following the establishment in 2007 of a legal basis for the creation of new parks, the
Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) recognised eight regional nature parks at
the beginning of September.
Switzerland now has all together twelve parks of national significance as well as the Swiss
National Park on the border with Italy. Five other nature parks are now being set up. While
the parks satisfy the requirements for a nature park in terms of natural territory and landscape, local residents still need to
give their approval. There is also a project for a new national park in Ticino. The Parco nazionale del Locarnese has been
recognised as a candidate by the FOEN.

Un geólogo afirma haber descubierto habla en el desierto en la frontera entre Egipto-Libia
Por Ashraf Khaled
El geólogo egipcio Khaled Ouda ha anunciado el descubrimiento de un “mar de agua subterránea” en el amplio desierto
occidental en la frontera egipcio-libia. Al parecer inspirado por el levantamiento popular que destituyó al antiguo presidente
Hosni Mubarak a principios de este año, él puso a alguno de los oasis el nombre de “revolución” y “mártires” gracias a la
plaza Tahrir
“Esta reserva de agua dulce es suficiente para recuperar y regar alrededor de 3,7 millones de acres,” según contó Ouda,
un profesor en geología en la universidad Assiut que pertenece al estado en el sur de Egipcio, en una conferencia de
prensa en Cairo la semana pasada.

Agricultural success from Africa: the case of fertilizer tree systems in southern Africa (Malawi,
United Republic of Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe)
In response to the declining soil fertility in southern Africa and the negative effects that this leads to, such
as food insecurity besides other developmental challenges, fertilizer tree systems (FTS) were developed as
technological innovation to help smallholder farmers to build soil organic matter and fertility in a
sustainable manner. In this paper, we trace the historical background and highlight the developmental
phases and outcomes of the technology. The synthesis shows that FTS are inexpensive technologies that
significantly raise crop yields, reduce food insecurity and enhance environmental services and resilience of
agro-ecologies. Many of the achievements recorded with FTS can be traced to some key factors: the availability of a suite
of technological options that are appropriate in a range of different household and ecological circumstances, partnership
between multiple institutions and disciplines in the development of the technology, active encouragement of farmer
innovations in the adaptation process and proactive engagement of several consortia of partner institutions to scale up the
technology in farming communities. It is recommended that smallholder farmers would benefit if rural development

planners emphasize the merits of different fertility replenishment approaches and taking advantage of the synergy
between FTS and mineral fertilizers rather than focusing on `organic vs. inorganic' debates.

The Exploration of Subglacial Lake Ellsworth - Antarctica
More than one hundred and forty five subglacial lakes have been discovered beneath the Antarctic
ice sheet. These lakes have been isolated from the surface for considerable periods of time and each
represents a unique environment. Life in subglacial lakes must adapt to total darkness, low nutrient
levels, high water pressures and isolation from the atmosphere. Subglacial lakes thus represent
unique biological habitats…

Consultation Document on Enabling Legislation for National Parks. August 2011
DOE. Department of Environment
Northern Ireland - United Kingdom
In October 2004, the Department published a consultation paper about national parks and other protected landscape
areas. The debate has moved on since then, and the political landscape has changed with the restoration of devolution and
a locally-elected Assembly.
In March 2011, the Department published a White Paper as a first step towards bringing forward enabling legislation to
allow for the creation of national parks in Northern Ireland. At the time the Department said that further material would be
published for consideration during the consultation period.
Accordingly, a new consultation document has now been published. This looks in more detail at the governance options for
a national park and seek answers to a number of specific questions on national park issues with a view to developing policy
proposals for enabling legislation to be brought before the Assembly. For ease of reference, the White Paper has been
included as an appendix.
The consultation document and accompanying letter to consultees are available below. This new document subsumes the
consultation on the White Paper, and the consultation period has been extended to reflect this. Responses are invited by

associations, établissements publics, services de l’Etat et des collectivités locales. Cet ouvrage leur est
destiné, ainsi qu’au grand public intéressé par ce sujet.
Son objectif est de sensibiliser et d’informer sur les vertébrés exotiques envahissants et leurs impacts.
Trente neuf espèces introduites parmi les plus envahissantes ou potentiellement envahissantes font l’objet
d’une monographie résumant leur écologie, leur distribution dans l’outre-mer français, leurs impacts avérés ou potentiels,

évaluer leurs impacts ainsi que leurs liens de dépendance vis-à-vis de la biodiversité. Il leur propose des actions pour
mieux intégrer la biodiversité dans leur stratégie de développement. Le ministère décerne aussi, depuis 2010, Année

Entreprises et biodiversité: Premiers résultats d'enquête - Commissariat Général au Développement Durable

Le Ministère a mené en 2010 une enquête auprès de 3 600 entreprises afin de mesurer la prise de conscience de leurs
interactions avec les écosystèmes et l’intégration de la biodiversité dans leurs stratégies. Les entreprises interrogées se
sont déclarées très majoritairement (deux tiers) conscientes de leurs impacts négatifs sur la biodiversité et, dans une
moindre mesure (un tiers), de leur dépendance vis-à-vis des services fournis par les écosystèmes. Les principales
pressions qu’elles exercent portent sur la qualité de l’air, de l’eau et du sol, un important service écologique dont elles
dépendent aussi. 40 % des entreprises anticipent que la perte de biodiversité représente un risque pour leurs activités à
l’avenir, contre 20 % aujourd’hui. Les entreprises incluent encore peu la biodiversité dans leurs politiques
environnementales. Les grandes sont deux tiers à déclarer agir en faveur de la biodiversité ou envisager de le faire. Elles
sont alors davantage motivées par la gestion des risques financiers et réglementaires associés à la perte de biodiversité
que par une intégration de la biodiversité dans leurs stratégies et activités.

collectively stand today, and to show the direction in which we need to move in a post-Rio+20 world.
It also highlights the missing pieces in our knowledge about the state of environment— such as
those related to freshwater quality and quantity, ground water depletion, ecosystem services, loss of
natural habitat, land degradation, chemicals and waste—due to lack of regular monitoring, collection
and compilation of data. Scientifically-credible data for environmental monitoring remains
inadequate and the challenge of building in-country capacity to produce better policy-relevant data needs urgent attention.

Pesticidas ecológicos y de origen local - República Checa
Un gran número de plantas son capaces de soportar ciertas molestias sin tener que utilizar repelentes. Esta capacidad es la
base de un proyecto llevado a cabo por químicos y botánicos checos. Si bien es cierto que ya se encuentran en el mercado
insecticidas basados en extractos de plantas, en general están hechos a partir de plantas tropicales. Los científicos checos
pretenden desarrollar productos obtenidos a partir de plantas que crecen en sus latitudes. "Los colinabos necesitan la
ayuda que puede proporcionarles la lavanda, los pimientos la de la ajedrea".

Bouncing Back to Life: Restoring the Florida laboratory where Thomas Edison
sought a substitute for rubber - Fort Myers - Florida - USA
In the final years of his life, Thomas Edison searched for an alternative source of rubber with
the same burning intensity he'd demonstrated in pursuit of a reliable light bulb. The locus of
his efforts was a site he called his "jungle," a lush waterfront corner of southwest Florida
where he wintered with his wife, Mina, and eventually grew thousands of plants that played a
crucial role in his experiments.

Restored citadel, dating back to the days of Alexander
the Great, is symbol of hope in Afghanistan
HERAT (AP).- In the 1970s, tourists traveled to western
Afghanistan to climb on the ruins of an ancient citadel, a
fortress resembling a sandcastle that has stood overlooking
the city of Herat for thousands of years.
The citadel was crumbling then, but today the newly restored
structure, dating back to the days of Alexander the Great, is a
hopeful sign of progress in a country beset by war.
Hundreds of Afghan craftsmen worked to restore the ruins' past glory with help from the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and
about $2.4 million from the U.S. and German governments.
The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, was among the tourists drawn to Herat decades ago, and on Sunday
he celebrated the citadel's restoration and the opening of a new museum of Afghan artifacts at the site.

Update from Ciudad Perdida Global Heritage Fund Field Mapping Mission (May / June,
2011) - Colombia
In late May and early June of 2011, a GHF team comprised of Santiago Giraldo, Adam Dunbar
and Dan Thompson conducted a field mapping mission to Ciudad Perdida, an ancient Tayrona
archaeological site deep in the jungles of northern Colombia's Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta
mountain range. In preparation for the drafting of a site Master Conservation Plan by the
Colombian Institute of Anthropology and History (ICANH) for this GHF Current Project, the
team set out to map the archaeological sites that surround Ciudad Perdida in the Upper
Buritaca River Valley using precision Ashtech GPS units. Mapping these sites, some of which hadn't been visited since they
were first discovered over 30 years ago, was an essential endeavor in order to set up a long-term, sustainable heritage
management plan for the area. The team worked jointly with the ICANH conservation team at the site, led by Catalina
Bateman, discussing further conservation measures and protection needed for the site. The project is a joint enterprise
with ICANH, which has managed and preserved the site since 1976.

English Heritage Guidance Note: Theft of Metal from Church Buildings
This guidance note sets out English Heritage’s1 response to the epidemic of lead theft2 which is affecting historic buildings
and, in particular, parish churches3. We recognise that any theft brings frustration, expense and inconvenience to
congregations. Preventing future thefts is paramount, but dealing with the unfortunate aftermath in an appropriate way is
also very important.
This guidance is in two parts: the first outlines English Heritage’s approach and our advice for congregations on the
significance of lead, how to protect it, and how to respond to thefts; the second offers detailed practical information about
selecting the material to be used for historic church roofs and making it secure.

Vacant Historic Buildings: An owner's guide to temporary uses, maintenance and mothballing English Heritage
English Heritage has produced this guidance to help owners to reduce the risks facing empty buildings, by
undertaking a range of precautionary measures and adopting an active management approach. It applies
to all types of heritage buildings, whether or not they have statutory protection.
It explains how to de-commission buildings that are about to be vacated, as well as how to look after
buildings that have already been vacant for some time. By adopting this approach, owners can prevent
unnecessary damage, dereliction and loss of significance to these buildings. They will also benefit by
maintaining the market value of their assets and increasing the chances of bringing them back into permanent use.

landscapes.
It provides the basis for advice by English Heritage on the setting of heritage assets when we
respond to consultations and when we assess the implications of development proposals on
the historic estate that we manage. It is also intended to assist others involved with managing
development that may affect the setting of heritage assets.

Stopping the Rot: A Guide to Enforcement Action to Save Historic Buildings - English Heritage
Keeping historic buildings in good repair and, where possible, in use, is the key to their preservation.
Owners of listed buildings are under no statutory obligation to maintain their property in a good state of
repair, although it is in their interests to do so. Local authorities can, however, take action to secure repair
when it becomes evident that a building is being allowed to deteriorate.
Urgent Works Notices, Repairs Notices and Section 215 Notices can be very effective tools to help secure
the preservation of historic buildings.
This guidance, which supersedes the first edition published in 1999, is designed to help local authorities
make effective use of these powers. It provides step-by-step advice on the use of the main procedures and includes case
studies and a selection of specimen letters, notices, schedules and agreements.

La Cour européenne des droits de l'homme déboute les anciens propriétaires des
terrains au-dessus de la grotte Chauvet - France
La Cour européenne des droits de l’homme (CEDH) a déclaré irrecevable, le 24 octobre
2011, la requête des anciens propriétaires de la grotte Chauvet. Expropriés de leurs terrains
de Vallon-Pont-d’Arc en 1995, après la découverte du site rupestre, ils demandaient
davantage d’indemnités de la part de l’Etat français. La CEDH a jugé que les 767 065 euros
qu’ils avaient déjà reçus étaient suffisants, au regard du préjudice qu’ils avaient subi.

Evolución Humana: Adaptaciones, Migraciones y Desarrollos Sociales. Programa Temático de
Patrimonio Mundial
Nuria Sanz y Penelope Keenan (eds.)
UNESCO World Heritage Centre, 2011
World Heritage papers (N. 29, 2011)
The World Heritage Thematic Programme ‘Human Evolution: Adaptations, Dispersals and Social
Developments’ (HEADS) comes at a pertinent time in the history of the World Heritage Convention, when
there is a call for a broader, more multidimensional concept of heritage. These challenges, which the World
Heritage Committee has underlined in recent years, bring to the forefront the significant steps to be taken in the future
evolution of the Convention. The HEADS Programme was launched in the context of the Global Strategy for a
Representative, Balanced and Credible World Heritage List, initiated by the World Heritage Committee in 1994 to broaden
the definition of World Heritage as well as the framework and implementation of the Convention.
This publication offers an overview of the developments of the HEADS Programme since its inception in 2008,
substantiated by scientific contributions from experts in the related fields of study: human evolution and sites related to
early human origins, early archaeological sites and the beginning of cultural diversity, and rock art.

South Africa's New Minimum Standard for Responsible Tourism
Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk confirmed at the launch – on a ferry boat outside the southern Cape town of
Knysna on 12 September – that responsible tourism has been a guiding principle for the industry in South Africa since an
important policy paper on the subject was published in 1996.
However, he said, 'One of the key challenges that we faced was that South Africa did not have a single, unified national
responsible tourism standard and accreditation system.'

Turismo sostenible y áreas protegidas: una unión exitosa – Carta Europea de
Turismo Sostenible en Espacios Protegidos.
La red de espacios protegidos que participa en la Carta Europa de Turismo Sostenible
en Espacios Protegidos sigue creciendo a un ritmo alarmante. Hoy 89 espacios
protegidos a lo largo de nueve países diferentes están activamente involucrados en el
proceso de la Carta.
Durante el Congreso de EUROPARC 2011 celebrado este año en Bad Urach, 12 espacios
protegidos de Finlandia, Francia, Italia, España, y Reino Unido recibieron la Carta
Europea de Turismo Sostenible después de obtener una evaluación positiva. Además se volvieron a evaluar cinco parques
este año tras sus primeros cinco años de trabajo con la Carta.
El amplio número de espacios que están solicitando la Carta cada año muestra de forma clara el creciente interés por parte
de los espacios protegidos de toda Europa en las acciones de la Carta. Además casi todos los parques galardonados están
solicitando una re-evaluación tras los primeros cinco años de mejoras, y siguen reconociendo la función estratégica de la
Carta para la gestión y el desarrollo de estrategias de turismo sostenible y de acciones en los espacios protegidos.

Can Eco-Tourism Help Underdeveloped Countries?
Article from Mother Nature Network. By Josh Lew.
Tourism might not be the ultimate answer to poverty and economic woes, but it is a
major boon for places around the world that suffer from a lack of natural resources or
industry. For instance, tourism is a hugely important industry in the Caribbean. Without
flocks of resort- goers, nations in this part of the world would have to rely more heavily
on agriculture, leaving their economies at the mercy of the fluctuating prices of
commodities like coffee, sugar and bananas.
There are plenty of valid concerns about the environmental impact of hotel construction, excessive tourist traffic and cruise
ships, but it isn't fair to leave the positive economic impact out of the mass-tourism discussion. Large resorts employ
hundreds of local people, and local entrepreneurs, from taxi drivers to guides to souvenir shop owners, benefit from the
tourism trade.

Transparency & Accountability: UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organization) Raises Industry
Standards to New Level
The UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) ended its 19th biennial General Assembly in Seoul last week by setting new
standards of transparency and accountability for the global travel industry as well as its many membership-based
associations, both public and private.
Fulfilling one of the key pledges made by the Secretary-General Dr Taleb Rifai (a former tourism minister of Jordan) upon
his election to the post two years ago, the UNWTO posted its entire set of meeting documents online. The public now has
unrestricted access to complete information on the world’s apex tourism body, including its detailed finances, membership
status, projects, activities, staffing structure and much more.

Voyageur responsable : plateforme de la SNCF (Société nationale des chemins

L'attrait du voyage est inné chez l'humain qui a toujours été un grand nomade. Ce désir
perpétuel de mouvement fait peut-être du bien à une industrie touristique milliardaire,
mais peut faire mal à l'environnement et aux populations locales qui souvent ne voient
pas la lueur des profits économiques du tourisme.
C'est pourquoi, de plus en plus, la tendance est au voyage responsable où l’on tente de
minimiser l'empreinte écologique et d'encourager les populations locales.

Leti 360 - Studio Mumbai - 2007 - Leti - Uttaranchal - India
Located at 2350 m (7700 ft.) above sea level, Leti 360 resort is perched on a promontory
in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas. The site is a two hour walk [9 km] from the
nearest motorable road and is accessed by a narrow footpath carved into the
mountainside, part of a network of trails used by local villagers for daily travel and
transport. The trail culminates at the central dining structure built on a plateau, around
which four guest dwellings are discreetly set into existing agricultural terraces. Hiramony
glacier and the peak of Nanda Kot (6,861 m / 22510 ft.) are visible to the north; the peaks
of Nepal line the eastern horizon; and to the south, the Ram Ganga River carves its way through steep terraced valleys
and mountain passes.
The design of the resort was influenced by the inherent constraints of building in the area, concerns of environmental
impact and cultural sensitivity, and careful observation of indigenous materials, climate and landscape. The architecture is
both timeless and contemporary.

Playing with fire: struggling with ‘experience’ and ‘play’ in war tourism
Mads Daugbjerg
In Museum and society, Mar 2011. 9(1) 17-33 © 2011.
ISSN 1479-8360
This paper takes up the ambiguities of embracing ‘experiential’ and ‘playful’ ways of learning at war sites. It takes as its
point of departure the widespread tendencies in the heritage industry to align communication to new emotional and playful
ways of learning about the past and goes on to demonstrate and discuss how these assert themselves at a specific Danish
war site. The links between the concepts of heritage, experience, romanticism and nationalism are investigated with
historical reference to the Scandinavian open air museology and theoretical inspiration drawn from Scott Lash and his
notion of a ‘second’ modernity. It is argued that the current obsession with ‘experience’ in the heritage sector displays a
range of neo-romantic traits. At the Danish centre, staff and visitors are shown to negotiate and struggle to ‘balance off’
their playful and romantic engagements
against more distanced, non-involved stances towards the war past.

Sunken Guinness Ship Revealed Off the Coast of Dublin - Ireland
HIGH RESOLUTION images of a merchant ship which was sunk ninety-four years ago today
(October 12th) off the coast of Dublin have been revealed by the INFOMAR (INtegrated Mapping
FOr the Sustainable Development of Ireland’s MARine Resource) Programme. The images were
obtained during a mission on the national research vessel the RV Celtic Voyager earlier this year
which surveyed the wreck of the first Guinness merchant vessel, the W.M. Barkley.
The detailed seabed images, which include deck features and complex sand wave structures,
were recorded by towed sidescan sonar provided by the Moore Marine Group, and give a visual
insight into the defensively armed ship that was sunk by a German torpedo in 1917, seven miles east of the Kish Bank off
Dublin.

Convención de la UNESCO para la Protección del Patrimonio Cultural Subacuático
celebra su X Aniversario. París (Francia) 2 noviembre 2011
Hay una riqueza de información histórica increíble escondida en los yacimientos arqueológicos
subacuáticos que quedan por descubrir. Mientras algunos de ellos son ya bastante conocidos, la
mayoría todavía esperan a ser investigados. Con el propósito de otorgarles una adecuada
protección y un debido reconocimiento público, la UNESCO adoptó la Convención para la
Protección del Patrimonio Cultural Subacuático el 2 de noviembre de 2001. A lo largo de sus 10
años de existencia, este tratado se ha convertido en la herramienta legal internacional más
importante para la protección del patrimonio mundial sumergido. Los arqueólogos subacuáticos de todo el mundo han
declarado su ferviente apoyo a la Convención y 40 estados han pasado ya a engrosar la lista de Estados Parte. La caza de
tesoros se vuelva así cada vez más estigmatizada a los ojos no sólo de los profesionales, sino también del público en
general. Gracias a esta Convención, el patrimonio sumergido tiene ahora la misma protección que el patrimonio hallado en
tierra firme.

Letter from Bermuda: Secrets of a Civil War Shipwreck
by James P. Delgado
Bermuda is an island nation famous for its shipwrecks. Discovered in 1505 by Spanish mariner
Juan de Bermudez, the tiny territory is made up of 181 small islands ringed by reefs that have
claimed hundreds of vessels. It was a shipwreck, in fact, that led to the settlement of the
islands. Today, Bermuda is home to more than 62,000 people, and some 150 to 300 wrecks
are said to be submerged off its beaches and in its maze of reefs…

Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual
El tema de la celebración del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual de 2011 es: “Patrimonio audiovisual:
Ver, oir y aprender.”
Las grabaciones de sonido y las imágenes en movimiento son documentos extremadamente vulnerables, ya
que se pueden destruir fácilmente y de forma deliberada. El patrimonio audiovisual, emblemático del siglo
XX, se puede perder definitivamente a consecuencia del abandono, el deterioro natural y la obsolescencia
tecnológica. El público ha de ser consciente de la importancia de salvaguardar estas grabaciones. Con la

New Website on Rural Vernacular Heritage - Registro delle Eredità Immateriali della Lombardia - Lombardy Italy
Progetto prodotto da Comitato Cascine Milano 2015, Storie Digitali e Università degli Studi di Milano Di.P.S.A-Facoltà di
Agraria promosso da Regione Lombardia all’interno del “Registro delle Eredità Immateriali della Lombardia – R.E.I.L.“. Con
la collaborazione del Distretto Agricolo Milanese.
Riportiamo qui alcune panoramiche in esterno realizzate nel 2011 tratte dal progetto di raccolta della memoria della vita
delle cascine grazie alle testimonianze dei protagonisti che restituiscono al territorio la storia locale di questi insediamenti e
la rete di relazioni – sociali, culturali, produttive, ambientali – che intorno ad essi si sono sviluppate.
Le cascine di Milano sono il deposito di memorie e tradizioni che esprimono l’evoluzione della storia e della cultura agricola
del nostro territorio. Un patrimonio fatto di persone, luoghi, riti e modi di produrre, trasformare i prodotti e costruire gli
ambienti e le relazioni di lavoro e di vita. Riscoprire oggi il valore e la complessità di questo patrimonio può servire a
ripensare in modi nuovi e dinamici le relazioni tra vita rurale e vita urbana.

2 tifones causan serios daños a los arrozales en terrazas de las cordilleras de Filipinas.
La isla de Nord-Luzon, situada en el archipiélago de Filipinas, fue afectada severamente por el tifón Pedrin (Denominación
común internacional: Nesat) que cruzó la región el martes 27 de septiembre. Su trayectoria afectó a la provincia de Ifugao,
provocando según los informes preliminares vertidos de lodo y deslizamientos de terreno dentro del sitio del patrimonio
mundial de los arrozales en terrazas de las cordilleras de Filipinas. Un segundo tifón afectó la zona el fin de semana pasado.
Mientras que el sistema de comunicación no está aún completamente en funcionamiento en la región y que numerosas
carreteras permanecen bloqueadas, la amplitud de los daños y el número de pérdidas humanas están aún por determinar.
Las autoridades filipinas informaron a la UNESCO que van a pedir una ayuda de urgencia mediante el Fondo urgente del
patrimonio mundial con el fin de responder a esta situación. La conservación de los Arrozales en terrazas exigirá esfuerzos
considerables y concertados. El centro del patrimonio mundial va a analizar y a examinar todos los medios posibles para
responder a esta situación lo más rápidamente posible.

UNESCO to assess flood-affected Ayutthaya World Heritage site - Bangkok Thailand
UNESCO Bangkok has been requested by the Thai government to undertake a mission to
the Ancient City of Ayutthaya in Thailand to assess the impact to the World Heritage
property from heavy flooding.
The World Heritage property of Ayutthaya, which occupies the western half of the inner
island of Ayutthaya, has been flooded for more than a week. Monuments and temples on
the outside perimeter of the site (technically not part of the World Heritage property), such
as Wat Chaiwattanaram on the opposite bank of the river, have also been inundated.

Architecture City Guide: Tel Aviv - Israel
This week our Architecture City Guide is headed to Tel Aviv. Justin Kliger, a local urban
planner and designer and friend of ArchDaily, graciously put together the material for
this week’s guide. As the founder of Architec.tour.a, an architecture tour company in Tel
Aviv , Kliger offered us great insights into the architecture of his city. “Tel Aviv is
covered by a UNESCO world heritage listing as the ‘White City’, the single largest
collection of International Style buildings in one city. In addition, there is a vast amount
of development and construction going on in Tel Aviv. There are a range of interesting
buildings, including many examples of Brutalist buildings, post modernist structures and new cutting edge designs,” says
Kliger. The 12 buildings we feature here only scratch the surface of what Tel Aviv has to offer. We will be adding to the list
in the near future so leave more suggestions in the comment section below.

Formación en planificación espacial marina de sitios marinos del patrimonio
mundial - Baja California (México)
Del 28 de septiembre al 5 de octubre de 2011, el Programa Marino del Patrimonio Mundial
organizó durante 2 días una formación de planificación espacial de los ecosistemas marinos
para el personal de gestión de dos sitios del Patrimonio Mundial: el santuario de las ballenas
de El Vizcaíno y las islas y superficies protegidas del Golfo de California (ambos situados en
Baja California, en México).
El Santuario de las ballenas de El Vizcaíno está inscrito en el Patrimonio Mundial desde
1993. Se trata de la única zona de parición y repoblación de ballenas grises del Pacífico-Este, que efectúan cada temporada
un viaje de millares de millas, desde el mar de Bering y de los Chukches en el Ártico. De todas las poblaciones de ballenas
grises del mundo, ésta es la última que está aún en buenas condiciones.

Update from Pingyao, China: Global Heritage Fund Senior Advisory Board
Chair Tracks Progress at Pingyao
Authentic preservation at Pingyao reflects definition of sustainable development:
development that provides equally for current and future generations in economic,
social and environmental terms.
In 1997, UNESCO added Pinyao to its World Heritage list, calling it “an exceptionally
well-preserved example of a traditional Han Chinese city.” Ten years later, GHF
began working there to preserve the vernacular architecture, revitalize and stimulate
traditional arts, and establish special historic areas…

Las superficies protegidas de la región floral del Cabo gozan del apoyo de un socio
del Centro del patrimonio mundial
Fauna and Flora International (FI), un viejo socio del Centro del patrimonio mundial, ha
hecho un llamamiento mundial esta semana con el objetivo de ayudar a proteger más de
50.000 hectáreas de un ecosistema único en el mundo, el “fynbos”, situado en la región
floral del Cabo, en Sudáfrica. Las tierras a las que se refiere están en las zonas tampones
del sitio del patrimonio mundial, y su conservación contribuye a la integridad a largo plazo
de este sitio.
La biodiversidad vegetal del fynbos es superior a la de la Amazonia. Desgraciadamente, según la Lista Roja de la UICN de
las especies amenazadas, el bioma de fynbos contiene también el mayor número de plantas amenazadas en el mundo,
haciendo que la conservación de esta zona sea de una importancia vital.

Inundaciones en Tailandia
Las inundaciones que afectan a Tailandia desde hace dos meses y medio han puesto en
peligro monumentos como el templo de Chai Wattanaram, inscrito en el patrimonio mundial
de la UNESCO. Su construcción se remonta a 1629.
El vicegobernador de la región de Ayuttahaya, Narong Onsaard reconoce que les sorprendió
la fuerza de las últimas lluvias: “La situación es grave, porque en años anteriores siempre
hemos podido controlarlo, pero ahora la situación es peor. No esperábamos que la fuerza del
agua rompiera los diques. Lo hemos intentado todo porque es un monumento histórico y
patrimonio mundial”.
Casi la mitad del medio millar de templos de la región se han visto dañados por el agua, en un país que depende
esencialmente del turismo. Las autoridades tailandesas calculan que han muerto cerca de 230 personas en las peores
inundaciones en décadas, que comenzaron en julio con una tormenta tropical y se agravaron con la llegada de la
temporada de monzones.

Management of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Poland and Norway
Praca zbiorowa, prof. Jacek Purchla (red.)
Date of issue: 2011
ISBN: 978-83-89273-82-6
The publication is the result of two-year-long (2009–2011) research project entitled "Management of
UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Poland and Norway” intended as a platform enabling exchange of
experience between Polish and Norwegian experts working in the field of heritage management. The
project also created an opportunity to initiate direct cooperation between relevant teams and institutions
from both countries.
The Norwegian partner of the International Cultural Centre in this project is Riksantikvaren, Directorat for Culture Heritage
in Oslo.
The following criteria have been used in the selection of sites: substantial similarities between the given Polish and
Norwegian sites (as defined in the UNESCO Heritage List in both countries) and similar preservation challenges and issues
faced by selected representatives. The primary objective of the project was to compare analogous places in Poland and
Norway in four thematic groups: 1) urban layouts of big cities, 2) post-industrial heritage: case studies of mining towns, 3)
wooden churches, 4) cultural landscapes.
The publication boasts rich illustrative materials.

Evolución Humana: Adaptaciones, Migraciones y Desarrollos Sociales. Programa Temático de
Patrimonio Mundial
Nuria Sanz y Penelope Keenan (eds.)
UNESCO World Heritage Centre, 2011
World Heritage papers (N. 29, 2011)
The World Heritage Thematic Programme ‘Human Evolution: Adaptations, Dispersals and Social
Developments’ (HEADS) comes at a pertinent time in the history of the World Heritage Convention, when
there is a call for a broader, more multidimensional concept of heritage. These challenges, which the World
Heritage Committee has underlined in recent years, bring to the forefront the significant steps to be taken in the future
evolution of the Convention. The HEADS Programme was launched in the context of the Global Strategy for a
Representative, Balanced and Credible World Heritage List, initiated by the World Heritage Committee in 1994 to broaden
the definition of World Heritage as well as the framework and implementation of the Convention.
This publication offers an overview of the developments of the HEADS Programme since its inception in 2008,
substantiated by scientific contributions from experts in the related fields of study: human evolution and sites related to
early human origins, early archaeological sites and the beginning of cultural diversity, and rock art.

Review of the World Heritage Network: Biogeography, Habitats and Biodiversity
Author: Magin, C., Chape, S.
Date Published: January 2004
The aim of the World Heritage Convention is to ensure the protection for all time of the world’s natural and
cultural heritage of Outstanding Universal Value. In 1994, to assist in meeting this aim, the World Heritage
Committee adopted a Global Strategy for achieving a balanced, representative and credible World Heritage
List that reflects the world’s diverse heritage. Over the past 10 years a number of studies and consultations
have been carried out to develop and refine the Global Strategy. This review is an important addition to
that process, focusing on the inter-related elements of biogeography, habitats and biological diversity that underpin much
of what we consider ‘natural heritage’.

Adapting to change: the state of conservation of World Heritage forests in 2011
Publisher: UNESCO - World Heritage Centre
Number Edition: 30
Beyond providing an overview of the state of conservation of World Heritage forests in general, this
publication attempts to provide some welcome thoughts on the relationship between World Heritage
forests and their surrounding landscapes, and on mechanisms that could be applied to ensure that this
relationship is mutually beneficial alongside social, economic and environmental criteria. I am convinced
that the World Heritage Convention can be effectively leveraged to bring about such positive
contributions, and I look forward to seeing tangible results on the ground.

Endangered heritage seen from space - From Space to Place, An Image Atlas of World
Heritage Sites on the "In Danger" List of UNESCO
The Atlas was produced by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with
UNESCO. It presents detailed satellite photos of the 31 sites on the List of World Heritage in
Danger. These sites face a range of threats from pillaging to natural disasters, pollution, mass
tourism, and armed conflict.
Satellite imaging has become an important tool for World Heritage site managers, providing
invaluable information about the development of sites, evolution of wildlife habitats, human
encroachment and agricultural activity, as well as damages caused by climate change.
To help developing countries share the benefits of space technology, UNESCO has established partnerships with leading
space agencies including NASA (U.S.A.), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the space agencies of France and
Germany, all of which help UNESCO preserve World Heritage.
