    While the Marvel Universe, as fans know, has always been filled with spectacular heroes and amazing adventures, there are few things fans love more than getting a glimpse of what the future might hold. reserve for their favorite characters. Unfortunately, the usual circumstances that make up this particular breed of stories are usually some of the worst imaginable. This turned out to be true thanks to a myriad of “old man” tales over the years, and that’s certainly the case with Namor’s latest return to the spotlight. However, for the latter, there’s at least a chance things could turn around, and it’s all thanks to a classic character whose light is unable to turn off.


    The dark future world of Namor the Submarine: Conquered Shores #2 (by Christopher Cantwell, Pasqual Ferry, Matt Hollingsworth, and VC’s Joe Caramagna) finds Atlantis thriving beneath the waves, while the surface world suffers from a lack of land, resources, and even fresh air . While Namor has made it his mission to help the last remnants of humanity in any way possible, his efforts have not been as well received as he hoped. Although his last trek to the surface nearly ended in utter disaster, the former king of atlantis was saved by the unexpected appearance of the original Human Torch. At first glance, it’s slightly surprising that the torch is still burning after all this time, but the fact that he could potentially save the entire world single-handedly is what makes his return truly miraculous.

    RELATED: Marvel is making a major change to Namor’s relationship with Atlantis


    The First Human Torch Is Marvel’s Least Expected Hero

    namor conquered the shores 2 its own fuel source

    Jim Hammond, aka the Human Torch, is arguably the oldest of all Marvel superheroes, his first appearance being in 1939. Marvel Comics #1 (by Carl Burgos, Al Anders and Bill Everett). The creation of Professor Phineas Horton, Hammond is an android with exceptional pyrokinetic properties. Initially, the torch was deemed too dangerous to keep intact, though that changed soon after Hammond showed himself capable of astonishing heroic feats. In the years that followed, the Human Torch and Namor became fast enemies, but the threat of a common enemy in the form of the Axis powers during World War II turned their relationship upside down just as quickly.

    Along with Captain America, Hammond and Namor trained the invaders to fight on behalf of the rest of the world, and while the first Human Torch disappeared for a while after the team disbanded, he certainly didn’t fade away completely. Throughout the modern era, Hammond has fought against Immortus and Mad Thinker, helped Luke Cage and Danny Rand revive their Heroes for Hire organization, and even went to war with heroes and villains all over the multiverse. Almost every time Hammond would be least expected, he took the opportunity to make a comeback, usually with the goal of saving the world. Now that he’s back in the pages of conquered shoresit seems to be the case yet again thanks to Hammond’s unfathomable ability to act as his own eternal fuel source.

    Marvel’s Original Human Torch Exists in the Dark

    Even Namor himself is more than willing to admit that the Human Torch’s most unsuspecting superpower is how unexpected his frequent appearances tend to be. That he didn’t take to the stars like so many other heroes in this timeline might not mean much on its own. That no one on Earth realized that Hammond had remained, on the other hand, is a clear indicator of the darkness in which he exists.

    Thankfully, obscure doesn’t mean forgotten, and with any luck, the Human Torch’s latest return will prove to be exactly what the world of conquered shores needs to survive. Of course, it also depends on Hammond being on the same side of the battle as the former king of Atlantis. Given the history between them, there’s really no way to tell how likely that will be, although Hammond’s reaction to seeing Namor in the wild doesn’t imply anything good for either of them. ‘other.

    SAN-JUAN — Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland and Assistant Secretary for Insular and International Affairs Carmen G. Cantor traveled to the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) and Puerto Rico this week to highlight the Department’s efforts to build coastal resilience and climate in US territories, and opportunities to tell a fuller story of America.

    Throughout the tour, they met with elected leaders and community partners, visited areas managed by the National Park Service (NPS) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and visited sites that help tell the story of the slaves in the USVI. The trip highlighted how significant investments from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Act and Cut Inflation Act will help ensure U.S. territories have the resources they need to weather the storms. impacts of extreme weather events and the climate crisis.

    In St. Thomas, Secretary Haaland, Assistant Secretary Cantor, Governor Albert Bryan, and Lieutenant Governor Tregenza Roach honored our nation’s veterans and military families during a parade and ceremonial Veterans Day. Secretary Haaland and Assistant Secretary Cantor visited Fort Christian, a United States National Historic Landmark, and met with local high school student leaders from the Close-Up Organization and the Junior Statesman of America.

    In St. John, interior leaders visited Lind Point in the Virgin Islands National Park, which is rebuilding several infrastructure projects following the impacts of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. They explored the Annaberg Sugar Plantation, where the NPS is working to incorporate the history of the slaves who were integral to the site’s history. They hiked Reef Bay and saw wildlife, petroglyphs and landscapes in the area, where they heard about ongoing efforts to increase land stabilization, prevent erosion on park beaches and protect the biodiversity of the island.

    In St. Croix, Secretary Haaland and Assistant Secretary Cantor visited The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Coral Innovation Lab to learn how it is advancing coral science and techniques to help reefs recover on a larger scale. . The NPS invested $1.1 million in a coral restoration partnership with TNC, which supported the first land-based nursery on St. Croix, increasing opportunities for long-term restoration efforts. This model of collaborative conservation is at the heart of the Biden-Harris administration’s agenda. america the beautiful initiative.

    They were joined by FWS staff and scientists from the Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge, to learn more about their work to advance the management and recovery of sea turtles at the refuge. The tour ended with the incredible experience of releasing newborn turtles that had hatched that morning but failed to emerge from their nests. They traveled to Christiansted National Historic Site where the NPS educates visitors about the site’s tragic history, which includes public auctions and brutality against slaves. The trip to St. Croix also included site visits to Point Udall and Buck Island Reef National Monument.

    The visit highlighted the significant resources that have been directed to USVI through the Office of Island Affairs (OIA) of the Interior, including nearly $3 million in Technical Assistance Program grants and maintenance; $3.4 million through the Energizing Insular Communities program; $571,306 in Bipartisan Infrastructure Act funding; and $378,339 under the Coral Reefs and Natural Resources Initiative. The OIA also provides support to the USVI through the Executive Leadership Development Program and the Association of Island Government Finance Officers run under the aegis of Pacific Formation and Virgin Islands initiatives.

    Secretary Haaland and Deputy Secretary Cantor then traveled to Puerto Rico, where they met with Governor Pedro Pierluisi and Representative Jenniffer González-Colón to discuss the Biden-Harris administration’s continued support for the island. They toured the San Juan National Historic Site (NHS) and toured the Castillo San Felipe del Morro, where they saw ongoing projects aimed at mitigating coastal erosion and climate impacts on historic masonry structures in the area. . They also visited Castillo San Cristobal, an 18th century military fortress also part of the NHS, which now captures and uses rainwater to enable the park to be more sustainable, efficient, cost-conscious and less taxing on residents. municipal water systems.

    The Biden-Harris administration has pledged to help support the island’s economic development and Hurricane Fiona Response and Recovery Efforts through a comprehensive and holistic approach that puts the island on the path to prosperity. The key to this commitment is President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Act, which is investing millions of dollars in Puerto Rico to build resilience in the face of pressing challenges such as the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. The Department of the Interior also announced that a total of $15 million in funding for climate change technical assistance has been made available under the Lower Inflation Act for the Territories.

    In the late 1980s, as a graduate student at Harvard Kennedy School, I conducted the first housing construction study for the Martha’s Vineyard Commission. He predicted that over the next 30 years, the number of homes would double if the current rate of construction continued. The ramifications of doubling the number of houses in Edgartown would be enormous. Municipal and commercial services should expand to meet demand. Recreational facilities, such as public beaches, may not be sufficient. Road infrastructure could not keep pace.

    The study proposed several land-use measures to moderate growth, which the people of Martha’s Vineyard acted on – working with several organizations to help conserve and protect the island.

    Today I am addressing a new challenge, perhaps the biggest challenge we will face in the next 30 years: how the Island is coping with climate change.

    The Martha’s Vineyard Commission’s recently released Climate Action Plan (CAP) provides a roadmap on how to anticipate and prepare for the threat. It is the result of an effort by members of the Six Towns, the Wampanoag Tribe and community partners. A copy of the plan is available at thevineyardway.org.

    In addition to periods of extreme heat, drought, and intense storms, the greatest enduring threat will be sea level rise. Sea levels are projected to rise 0.6 to 1.8 feet by 2050 This increase plus storm surge will inundate many coastal roads and port towns. Repairing the damage will be expensive. The CAP is divided into six interrelated thematic groups: (1) Land use, natural resources and biodiversity, (2) Transport, infrastructure and waste, (3) Public health and safety, (4) Economic resilience, (5) Food security , and (6) energy transformation.

    Working groups explored climate impacts on their thematic areas and developed 20-year goals, 10-year goals and immediate actions.

    Goal number one of the CAP’s transport, infrastructure and waste section states: “By 2040, roads and critical vulnerable infrastructure are protected or relocated through a network that prioritizes alternative transport and green infrastructure.”

    In other words, these coastal roads must either be hardened and/or raised or abandoned. To determine the best way forward, cities will need to work with the VMC to establish island-wide community values ​​to prioritize road infrastructure in the context of other economic, environmental and social values. Armed with this information, steps should then be taken to design, build and obtain financing for these roads in order to fortify or relocate them.

    All of this will not be easy and will require all aspects of the island to work together across all platforms. But there is no alternative. The best approach is to start now and plan for the future. After all, we’ve done it before.

    This week, the Hawai’i Wildfire Management Organization is offering “Community Ambassador” training on how to conduct wildfire risk assessments for Big Island landowners.

    In Kauaʻi, the fire department undergoes similar training.

    “They hope to mobilize and inspire communities on this island to become Firewise,” said Nani Barretto, co-executive director of the Hawai’i Wildfire Management Organization.

    It’s not your typical home appraisers who determine the value of your home, but specially trained people who will conduct free reviews of the safety of a property and its structures against the threat of wildfires.

    The first year of the Home Ignition Zone Evaluator training was triggered by a request from one of the 15 Firewise communities in Hawai’i.

    “I mentioned the idea and they all said that if there was funding to support in-home assessments, we would love to provide our community and neighbors with the education to do risk assessments. home fire,” Barretto said. “This first year is our pilot.”

    Firewise USA is a national program of the National Fire Protection Association, with communities in 37 states. Some, like California, have dozens of communities in the program, and some have only one.

    Hawai’i has three other communities currently going through the Firewise recognition process.

    “It’s spreading, it’s spreading,” Barretto said.

    Mike Walker, state protection forester for the state Forestry and Wildlife Division, which is primarily responsible for wildfire suppression on state forest lands, said: interfaces urban. Nearly 99% of these ignitions are of human origin; whether it’s a welder, parking a car on dry grass, or an intentional fire like arson.

    “When we want to protect our forests from fire, we also really want to protect our communities from fire. When ignitions happen in a WUI, they are the people most affected, so we really want to help the community as much as we want to help the forest.

    You can’t miss that the Pu’ukapu Homestead community on Mauna Kea’s lower northern flank is a Firewise USA community. A pair of signs, as you turn onto Mana Road, announce his participation.

    In August 2021, the massive Mana Road wildfire burned two structures here. On Friday, the prospective home assessors practiced what they had learned during classroom instruction Thursday at a Pu’ukapu home.

    THE ARTICLE CONTINUES UNDER THE AD

    In teams, they walked around the house noting things like defensible space, type of house construction, and nearby ignition sources. For this house, Walker noted that it’s a metal roof: “It’s a real fire-rated roof. She has a nice concrete slab around the house which is a good thing and keeping the grass, that zero to five foot area, is important to keep any flammable material away from the house.

    Over the next two years, evaluators will focus their efforts in designated Firewise communities. Awards and grants from the US Forest Service and Coalitions and Collaborations provide information, technical and financial support to Community Ambassadors to complete 390 individual home assessments.

    “After that, if there’s a demand and all of these assessors are willing to go on, we’ll open it up to residents of surrounding communities,” Barretto said. “Sometimes it’s the only inspiration needed for a resident to connect with another neighbor and say, ‘Hey, there’s a program called Firewise.’

    Michel Tomebusiness journalist

    The FBC Building Society announces that it will begin phase two of its Fontaine Ridge housing project in Harare in the first quarter of 2023, while expanding its construction projects in Hwange.

    Phase two of the Fontaine Ridge project will see the construction of 585 units while the Hwange residential housing project involves the maintenance of over 765 stands.

    FBC Building Society group marketing manager Roy Nyakunuwa revealed this during the Botswana technical team’s visit to the Fontaine Ridge building in Harare.

    FBC Building Society has been able to develop residential accommodation in Harare, Gweru, Kwekwe and Zvishavane.

    FBC housing projects in many parts of the country are part of the Ministry of National Housing and Social Amenities’ goal of providing contemporary and affordable settlements to Zimbabweans by 2030.

    However, this requires the collaboration of private and public sector actors with the common vision of championing the development of world-class and affordable housing properties for the general population.

    “We hope to begin construction of Phase 2 of Fontaine Ridge by the end of the first quarter of 2023, and that is when we intend to begin our Hwange project as well.

    “In Hwange, the land has been secured and we are still in the planning phase, including the architectural designs,” Mr Nyakunuwa said.

    The national housing backlog in Zimbabwe stands at around 1.5 million and the bank is committed to assisting in infrastructure development and eradicating the national housing backlog.

    He said the public was showing great enthusiasm for the Fontaine Ridge project, which saw the completion of Phase 1A in mid-2022, while Phase 1B is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

    “We are inundated with inquiries, the appetite is very high and people have seen the good work that has resulted from this project.”

    FBC Building Society chief executive Pius Rateiwa said the projects are part of the banking group’s desire to partner with key players, including the government, to promote home ownership in Zimbabwe.

    “The FBC Building Society’s quest for success in providing sustainable solutions to customer needs has led it to embark on this state-of-the-art, mid- to high-density housing project in Fontaine Ridge, as it steps up its efforts to develop modern housing infrastructure for all market segments of low, middle and high income groups.

    “We appreciate the efforts of the public sector to make land available to the private sector and reputable developers who have successfully added value to our limited land resources within the limits of relevant regulations,” Mr. Rateiwa said.

    Joy Makumbe, Engineer for the National Permanent Secretary for Housing and Social Amenities, said there has been a long need for government and the private sector to work together and provide decent housing to the general population.

    He said the government was doing all it could to meet its share.

    “As a government, we’re doing our 20% of the build, and FBC is saying here it’s doing a total of over 800 units, which is exciting for us because we’d like to see housing in the bag because our people need decent housing,” said engineer Makumbe.

    The FBC construction company has over the years become a dominant force in the mortgage finance and real estate development sector, having delivered over two thousand homes that meet the needs of a wide range of local and diaspora clients who needed starter homes.

    Ask us: As Election Day approaches, what questions do you have?

    Amid an influx of development plans in Montgomery County Limerick Township, the township is proposing an open space tax – a tax increase on earned income that would be used to preserve open space.

    Residents will make the final call in the November ballot.

    A polling question asks the Township of Limerick if it wants a 25% increase in total township income tax to be used solely for the purchase of open space. The funds could create more recreational lands, passive lands, parks and trails.

    The township and its school district, Spring Ford Area School District, already collect 0.5% of earned income each, totaling a 1% earned income tax for township residents. If this tax is enacted, the total tax on earned income would be 1.25%. For every $50,000 of taxable income (the median household income is $96,914), according to Limerick, the EIT will increase by $125.

    For 2023, Limerick will receive approximately $5.4 million in tax on earned income. With the proposed increase, Limerick estimated it would receive an additional $2.1 million per year.

    With a population of just over 20,000, Limerick has recently experienced a Party of development – ​​including proposed warehouses on 116 acres of land and plans for more than 450 housing units and a 332-unit apartment complex – which has caused some concern among residents.

    “One of the big issues for anyone who’s lived in the township is the amount of development that’s going on right now. And right now, the township has nothing to do to slow it down or stop it,” Allen Dowhie Jr., a township resident and former member of the township’s now disbanded Citizens’ Advisory Committee, said for the plan. of open space.

    Dowhie said the move allows the township to act effectively against rapid development.

    “We’re just trying to proactively get ahead and preserve as much open space as possible,” Dowhie said.

    “The more rest you give a plant, the more its root system develops and the greater its resilience when grazed or in drought conditions,” says Meadow, breeder of SD Dan Anderson. “It will straighten up faster and grow more plants above ground because you’ve managed to get a deep root system.”

    About 20 years after beginning their experience as second-generation ranchers at Darling Creek Ranch, the Anderson family attended Ranching For Profit School. Then they built their first drought plan, increased paddocks and water with the Great Plains and EQIP programs and haven’t looked back. “We noticed a huge change in the amount of grass we were producing just by giving the paddocks 12 to 14 months off focusing on the soil,” he says.

    Anderson has now been in intensive rotational grazing for 30 years, with the third generation now stepping in. He achieved goals never thought possible given his early days of grazing throughout the season and feeding hay from Thanksgiving through May. “By leaving each paddock with adequate standing forage (1,200 to 1,500 lbs/acre), we strengthen and nourish the soil to improve organic matter and water infiltration. Over time, we have doubled the number of heads of cattle on the same land, and we graze all year round,” he adds.

    Plan for drought

    A drought plan is an essential part of Anderson’s pasture management plan. Their goal is to protect the earth’s resources (soil and grass) and keep the core of the cow herd intact. They have implemented the drought plan three times (2004, 2012 and 2021), and their post-drought recovery is getting faster with each subsequent drought, thanks to rangeland health.



    Anderson will implement trigger dates as needed, according to the NRCS Drought Tool, especially if a drought persists into a second season. “We are implementing the trigger dates of our plan to sell livestock in the winter; the flexible one-year-old grass herd goes first, then we’ll move other animals [sheep or cattle] in April. The plan helps avoid being stuck in decisions, which greatly reduces stress and leads to better decisions,” he says.

    Judge Jessop, executive director of the South Dakota Grasslands Coalition (SDGC) and rancher near Presho, has watched and learned from countless ranchers during pasture schools, on video, from SDGC board members and in attending other events. “The important thing with the Coalition is that we encourage the adoption of a holistic approach, from the management of resources to the financial aspects including the social aspects of the family,” he says.

    Planning to reduce drought

    Longtime NRCS conservationist Mitch Faulkner of Belle Fourche has dealt with droughts on ranches in Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota. “Drought is always a crisis, so the more long-term strategic planning that happens, the better the herders can almost weather the drought themselves,” he says.

    Faulkner, who has helped many ranchers improve and upgrade their range and grazing strategies through NRCS, is a strong believer in implementing the 3Rs philosophy (Rest, Turn, Recover) is building a healthy, resilient and profitable ranch. “Herders who have reliable water sources and a rotation of multiple pastures with appropriate stocking rates and recovery periods can maintain a grazing plan even in drought conditions,” he says.

    part of it drought planning beyond trigger dates includes access to supplemental forage or cropland grazing and strategic herd reduction or less personalized feeding as needed. “A drought plan is an exit plan because you take the emotion out of the decision,” says Jessop. “Today we have adequate humidity, but the forecast doesn’t look good, which will impact grass growth next year. It’s not a crystal ball, but a plan and plans can change.

    Overgrazing penalizes the future

    Faulkner helps ranchers use the NRCS Drought Tool to calculate current and potential grass inventory at the start of the growing season to determine if part of a flexible herd should stay or go. “In some cases, herders can make their drought conditions worse by overgrazing. Then they will pay the penalty for years as the grassland becomes less resilient and plant vigor slowly recovers.

    Droughts are part of South Dakota’s natural cycle. Thus, some breeders incorporate a naturally conservative stocking rate. “When we ask them why, they tell us that these rates help pastures better withstand a dry year. They don’t have to worry about drought management as much,” says Faulkner. “This strategy is beneficial because a faster and stronger post-drought recovery can mean more income by adding yearlings or custom grazing during good times.”

    Hydraulic infrastructures are essential

    As Faulkner works with ranchers to create pasture and drought plans, he finds that having reliable, well-distributed water helps producers the most. “Management is what makes a ranch more drought resistant, but locations and livestock water reliability are the drivers of a successful plan. And it’s very satisfying when farmers tell me that these efforts reduce the severity of the drought,” he adds.

    For example, even in a small rotation of four or five pastures, Faulkner helps ranchers develop plans to minimize pasture-by-pasture periods and, where possible, maximize pasture recovery periods. “By placing reliable water on the landscape where it can accommodate a good grazing rotation, you can implement grazing management that will benefit the grass resource,” he says.

    Jessop encourages all ranchers interested in developing a more drought-tolerant ranch to reach out. South Dakota is fortunate to have many groups and the Grasslands Coalition working together to help ranchers improve grasslands. “Twenty years ago, when we started our pasture school, we talked about helping ranchers implement a four-pasture system,” he says. “Now we have ranchers who are strategically improving soil health and resting grass paddocks for 12 months while reducing the severity of drought. And we have more pasture walks, events and videos that show how breeders accomplish their improvements.”

South Dakota offers an innovative look at ranchers across the state who outline their improvement journeys in the NRCS-South Dakota video series’Our incredible meadows.’ Additionally, the South Dakota Grasslands Coalition has compiled a list of mentor breeders by subject. And the South Dakota Soil Health Coalition has a list of farmer and herder mentors.

    This feature is the final installment in a six-part series of articles showing how more ranchers have moved from all-season grazing in a few pastures to a more adaptive and productive grazing system. Understanding the stages of their journey, along with recommendations from grassland specialists, can put you on the path to less stressful and more profitable farming.
