How can I be exposed to TCE?
Description: TCE that is spilled on soil or that leaks from storage tanks can contaminate the soil around it. It evaporates less easily from soil and may stick to soil particles and remain for a long time. TCE in soil may also leak into groundwater. TCE can remain in groundwater for a long time. Most TCE that’s released into the atmosphere is from degreasing operations. TCE in contaminated soil, or more likely contaminated groundwater, can form a vapor that migrates through the soil into the home.

Life as a Refugee - South Sudan in Focus
Description: Imagine if you had no choice but to flee your country. Where would you go? How would you cope? What would you need to rebuild your life in exile? These are the questions that three million South Sudanese have had to ask themselves in the face an unrelenting civil war, famine, violence and persecution. And as conflicts across the globe have forced millions to flee their homes, the international debate on refugee policy rages on. How does South Sudan fit into this broader narrative, and what lessons can be learned from its citizens cast into uncertain exile? Join World Affairs as we examine this pressing global issue from both policy and human perspectives. Gabriel Akim, spokesperson for Rebuild South Sudan, Diana Essex-Lettieri, Deputy Director of Asylum Access, and Valentino Achak Deng, co-founder of the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation, will call upon their unique expertise and personal experience to shed light on what it means to be displaced from war-torn South Sudan.

Adobe Premiere Pro for Absolute Beginners
Description: New to Premiere Pro? In this tutorial I show you how to create a video using Adobe Premiere Pro. Want a written version of this tutorial? Go here: There are 7 simple steps to creating your film project. 1. Create a project First you need to create a new project. Select a location and filename to save your project file and any temporary files Adobe Premiere will create. 2. Import media The very first thing you need to do once you created your project is to import some media. You can import video, audio, image and other types of media files - Premiere Pro is pretty flexible. 3. Create a sequence A sequence is a container for your media files, a template that you can use to organise your clips and then export into a final video file. There are multiple ways to create a sequence. The easiest way is to drag a piece of media directly onto the 'New Item' icon. 4. Edit your project Once you have your sequence set up you can start to drag and drop your media items into the timeline, cut out the best parts and arrange them to create your film project outline. Make sure to familiarise yourself with all of the great editing tools provided by Premiere Pro and I guarantee your editing will flow a whole lot quicker. 5. Add transitions Transitions are used to blend between two consecutive clips. You can find a large number of transitions in Premiere Pro in the Effects panel. Open up the 'Video Transitions' folder and drag the transition you want onto the start or the cut between the clips in your sequence. 6. Add effects In the Effects panel in Premiere Pro you will find the 'Video Effects' folder. You can find a large number of cool deformation, colour correction, styling effects inbuilt into Premiere Pro. Simply drag the effect onto the clip you want to apply them to. With the clip selected, you can tweak the effect parameter in the Effects Control panel. 7. Working with Titles Titles are usually text elements, but can also contain icons and graphics, that overlay your footage. You can create titles by clicking on the New Item -- Title option in the project panel. In the title editor you can then define the elements in your title. Once you created the title, simply drag it from the project panel into your Sequence to use it. 8. Exporting your sequence Once you are happy with your sequence, you can export it. Before you can export a sequence you need to place the start and end markers - you can do this by positioning the timeline indicator where you want, right clicking it and selecting 'Mark In' and 'Mark Out'. This will define the working area of your sequence and tell Premiere which parts of the sequence you want to export. With your working area defined, make sure the sequence is selected, then go to File -- Export -- Media. Select your export format and your target filename and then set any other options that you like. I usually like to keep my bit rate between 10 - 20. I find it gives me decent video quality at a reasonable file size.

Is Agricultural Insurance the Key
Description: This event, jointly presented by Microlinks and Agrilinks, covered the potential for agricultural insurance to promote resilience and inclusive agricultural growth as part of an integrated risk management approach. Integrated risk management can provide a pathway out of poverty by mitigating climate risk and enabling smallholders to take advantage of economic growth opportunities. Lena Heron, Senior Rural Development Advisor in USAID’s Bureau for Food Security, discussed the use of insurance to support USAID’s inclusive, climate-smart agricultural growth and resilience programming objectives. Richard Choularton from the World Food Programme discussed how the Rural Resilience (R4) Initiative combines agricultural index insurance with broader risk management approaches to reduce vulnerability and improve the livelihoods of rural farmers. The R4 approach also incorporates risk reduction through community asset building (soil and water management), savings for improved coping, and credit to enable prudent risk taking for economic growth. Currently being implemented in Ethiopia and Senegal, R4 has recently begun activity in Malawi and Zambia. R4’s activities in Senegal are supported by a grant from USAID’s Global Climate Change Office. In 2014, R4 won a $500,000 grant through USAID's Internal Development Innovation Ventures (iDIV) competition, which sources game-changing ideas from USAID staff anywhere in the world.
