SORT BY Relevancy
Quality fisk keeper Tanya Bowers will be here at Aquatics Euphoria to speak on a topic that is very important to the fish keeping hobby! AND that topic my friends and listeners is Invasive Species which plague our world and destroys pristine eco-systems around the world. Even governments have introduced foreign species to pristine eco-systems trying to solve a problem but actually caused bigger problems. Tanya lives right on the Mexican border where there is a severe problem with plecos. Tanya will discuss this topic with me on 01-06-2014 at 1 pm EST. Callin to share at 1-347-677-1837
On Wednesday December 10th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, we welcome Nan Calvert of Seno Kenosha/Racine Land Trust Conservancy to the show. Nan is the Education Director at Senokrit and reaches out into the communities to help train and share valuable information to those interested in protecting our natural habitats from invasive species.
On WEdnesday September 24th at 9pm est, 8pm cst and 6pm pst, join Ray and Ken for a discussion on invasive species endemic to Maryland. A couple of years ago the snakehead had spread into the Potomac and its tributaries. Has Maryland been able to contain these Invasive ‘Fish From Hell’ and what are they doing to rid the waterways of the dangerous snakehead. Responsible fish keeping is a must with your aquarium pets and there are steps to follow if you no longer can keep them. Tune in for another important topic.
On Tuesday March 18th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst. Kari McWest returns to continue his discussion on Invasive Species in Florida, Texas and a few other states. Invasive Species is a very problem in every state and we as responsible aquarists need to help educate others new to the hobby
On Tuesday March 4th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, another episode of Invsaive Species with Ken talking to Kari McWest on a few invasive species on a National level ! We will be discussing Florida, Texas and a few other states. So tune in and gather some important information.
As we shift from petroleum-based energy to renewable energy, the production of biofuel, created from invasive species appears to be a viable option. However, certain plant species which have been proposed for biofuel production include invasive species and/or other plants which have the potential to escape cultivation. Is this a good solution for eliminating an environmental issue while satisfying an energy need or is this type of biofuel merely creating a disaster in the making?
In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, hosts, June Stoyer and special guest host, Luis Mejia talk to Dr. Lewis Ziska about the pros and cons of using invasive species as biofuel.
Dr. Ziska is a Plant Physiologist with the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Maryland. After graduating from the University of California, Davis, he began his career as a Smithsonian fellow, and then took up residence as the Project Leader for global climate change at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines before joining USDA. Dr. Ziska has published numerous papers on carbon dioxide and climate change impacts on agriculture, weed biology and public health. At present he is investigating the role of rising carbon dioxide and changing climate on food security, invasive species and aerobiology. Dr. Ziska’s research has appeared in: The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report and CNN Headline News. He has appeared on the ABC nightly news with Charles Gibson and the NBC nightly news with Brian Williams. He was also featured in the HBO documentary, “Too Hot Not to Handle”. Stay tuned!

Cockroaches is the Government
Cockroaches are insects of which about 30 species out of 4,600l are associated with human habitats. About four species are well known as pests.
Among the best-known pest species are the American cockroach, the German cockroach, the Asian cockroach, Tropical cockroaches
Cockroaches live in a wide range of environments around the world. Pest species adapt readily to a variety of environments, but prefer warm conditions found within buildings. Many tropical species prefer even warmer environments and do not fare well in the average household.
Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal and will run away when exposed to light. A peculiar exception is the Asian cockroach, which is attracted to light.
Fleas are the programs
They are wingless, with mouthparts adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood. Fleas are external parasites, living by hematophagy off the blood..
Going through the four life cycle stages of egg, larva, pupa, and imago (adult). Adult fleas must feed on blood before they can become capable of reproduction
Leeches are bankers
leeches are small parasitic, Not all leeches are bloodsuckers. Many are predators which eat earthworms,
The Amazon leech uses a different method of sucking blood. It inserts a long proboscis into the victim, as opposed to biting.
8. The bite of a leech is painless, due to its own anaesthetic.
9. The Hirudo leech injects an anti-coagulant serum into the victim to prevent the blood clotting
Thanks for hanging out in the Goddess Suite, Tune in @ 9pm for Talk about it Tuesday's show, sip a cup of Goddess Blend tea and get ready for the HOTTEST 2 HOURS of your life!

This month, Suzane welcomes special guest, Linda Bender, DVM.
A passionate, animal advocate and educator, Dr. Linda Bender's love of the natural world began in her childhood backyard. From orphaned deer to blue jays prematurely bumped from their nests, animals in distress somehow found a way to her loving arms. Her innate rapport with animals inspired her to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine.
During the fourteen years she spent living in England, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Linda’s veterinary work included the rescue, rehabilitation, and protection of wildlife, often in remote areas. Working with zoos in Southeast Asia, she treated animals rescued from the wildlife trafficking trade and helped reintroduce them back into their natural habitats. Among those given a second chance at life were clouded leopards, tigers, orangutans, and numerous species of rare psittacine and passerine birds. Working in the field with rarely encountered wildlife, she helped to develop treatment protocols.
For over twenty-five years, Linda has practiced meditation and studied many of the world’s wisdom traditions, including shamanism. Learning the traditions and ancient wisdom of indigenous people enriched her understanding of the sacred connection between humans, animals, and nature. These experiences helped shape her environmental consciousness and deepened her commitment to spirituality, conservation and animal advocacy.
A dedicated animal advocate and pro-active, grass-roots champion of animals both domestic and wild, Linda recently completed her first book, Animal Wisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals released in June of 2014. Her new book illuminates the undeniable ability for animals to restore our ecological, emotional and spiritual balance. Linda currently lectures and facilitates Animal Wisdom workshops worldwide.
In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer, talks to the founders of LionAid.org, Dr. Pieter Kat and Christine Macsween to discuss new import regulations in the EU to protect our big cats and other species. LionAid.org is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation and preservation of lions. Their mission is to create awareness about the huge decline of the lion population and work with government officials and other organizations to cease the legal hunting of these animals. Lions are a major trophy for hunters. Despite their well-documented decline, there is still a considerable trophy hunting effort. Since the last-published decline in lion numbers on the continent were made public in 2002-2004, over 4,400 lions have been exported as trophies. As such, trophies are largely male lions. The effect of this commercial activity has greatly impacted both overall lion numbers and the ability for remaining lions to reproduce. Trophy hunting must cease.
