Monte Carlo Beach: Biodiversity Actions For 2021

Monte-Carlo Beach

Green Globe recertified Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel in 2020 along with two sister Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer properties.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2021 / — In 2020, Green Globe recertified three Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer properties – Monte-Carlo Beach, Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo and Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo. Each hotel is unique in itself and sustainability strategies at different properties reflect distinctive green goals for the new year and beyond.

Monte-Carlo Beach is surrounded by spectacular natural environment and lies between lush vegetation, sea and sky.

Mrs Daniele Garcelon, Managing Director of Monte-Carlo Beach said, “We are all proud of attaining Green Globe Certification once again. The hospitality industry of tomorrow will, for certain, be a sustainable one. We cannot imagine anymore developing an hotel without taking into consideration a multitude of environmental issues. For many years now, Monte-Carlo Beach has established numerous responsible tourism practices and we are well on our way to continuing our commitment by taking concrete actions as we did last year in 2020.”

Bird Protection Refuge
Ecological initiatives remain a key priority at Monte-Carlo Beach which has its own natural forest located onsite. The Pointe de la Vigie and its superb pine forest has been classified as an LPO (Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux) bird protection refuge since July 2019. The latest wildlife inventory listed no fewer than 20 species of birds, including 10 nesting species and 15 protected species. This site at Monte-Carlo Beach is steadily becoming an essential refuge for local biodiversity.

Reef Dyke
The hotel is home to the creation of a biodiverse reef dyke. Located underwater 100 metres from the shore, this dyke has been designed to protect the beach and allow the development of marine life within a protected area. The new space is similar to a lagoon, with a sandy beach surrounded by Posidonia and rocks. The area is suitable for swimmers who are encouraged to act responsibly and be respectful of the sea life and their habitat.

Protection of Mediterranean Sea
Monte-Carlo Beach is committed to the development of a strategy to manage the Marine Protected Areas of the Principality of Monaco under the aegis of the Monegasque Association of Nature Protection. As with all the hotels located on the seafront, Monte-Carlo Beach actively participates in this plan by preserving its 1.7 km of coastline – La Réserve du Larvotto – which represents a quartar of the Monegasque coast.

NOAA Declares 2020 the Second Hottest Year on Record, a Very Close Second

Carbon dioxide concentrations (dashed blue line) have increased steadily while annual average temperature anomalies (black line) changed very little from 1950 to 1970 and from 1998 to 2014 (red line).

Carbon dioxide concentrations (dashed blue line) have increased steadily while annual average temperature anomalies (black line) changed very little from 1950 to 1970 and from 1998 to 2014 (red line).

Global warming from 1970 to 1998 is closely associated with ozone depletion caused by increases in tropospheric chlorine from CFCs.

Global warming from 1970 to 1998 is closely associated with ozone depletion caused by increases in tropospheric chlorine from CFCs.

If ozone depletion is the cause of observed warming, then global temperatures should decrease slowly as the ozone layer recovers (green line). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts major warming in the future based on greenhouse-warming theory.

If ozone depletion is the cause of observed warming, then global temperatures should decrease slowly as the ozone layer recovers (green line). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts major warming in the future based on greenhouse-warming theory.

This observation documents global warming but suggests that increases in greenhouse-gas emissions may not be the best explanation

Don’t you think my fellow scientists need to look at these very clear data carefully before we waste tens of trillions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions?”

— Dr. Peter L. Ward

JACKSON, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 / — “Detailed changes in global temperature trends since 1950 show a remarkably close correlation with changes in the ozone layer” according to Dr. Peter L. Ward, a geophysicist who worked 27 years with the U.S. Geological Survey. Ward was a leader in establishing a major national research program. He has testified before Congress, chaired a committee at the White House, worked on a committee for vice-president Gore, published many scientific papers, and received two national awards for educating the public about science.

“What is surprising,” according to Ward, “is that greenhouse-warming theory cannot explain these sudden changes in global temperature without a great deal of arm waving. Furthermore, no scientist has ever shown in the laboratory that increases in greenhouse-gas concentrations can actually cause warming of Earth’s surface.”

Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased every year since 1950 at ever-increasing rates. Average global surface temperatures, on the other hand, have changed much more irregularly.

All four major analyses of global temperatures by NASA, NOAA, the United Kingdom’s Met Office, and Berkeley Earth show that temperatures remained relatively constant from 1950 to 1970, rose suddenly from 1970 to 1998, remained relatively constant from 1998 to 2014, rose very rapidly from 2014 to 2016, decreased substantially in 2018 but rose again in 2019 and 2020. Each of these sudden changes in temperature correlates quite closely with sudden changes in the thickness of the ozone layer.

The ozone layer, 9 to 22 miles above Earth, absorbs nearly all ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation from Sun, protecting life on Earth from this high-energy radiation that causes sunburn, skin cancer, cataracts, and mutations.

“What is critically important,” Ward explains, “is that when a molecule of ozone absorbs ultraviolet-B radiation, the molecule is dissociated—it comes apart. The molecular pieces fly away from each other at high velocity, much like the ends of a snapped rubber band. Dissociation converts molecular bond energy holding the molecule together directly and completely into linear velocity, which is directly proportional to air temperature, warming the ozone layer. The molecular pieces can then recombine, so that dissociation will continue as long as UV-B radiation is available.”

A depleted ozone layer absorbs less UV-B, growing cooler as observed. More UV-B is then measured to reach Earth where it dissociates ground level ozone pollution, warming Earth’s surface. Warming since 1970 was nearly twice as much in the northern hemisphere, home to 90% of humanity and, therefore, home to most ground-level ozone pollution. Warming since 1970 was greatest on the Antarctic Peninsula, where ozone depletion was greatest.

UV-B radiation penetrates oceans more than a hundred feet, raising ocean heat content very efficiently since 1970, an observation that greenhouse-warming theory cannot explain.

Around 1970, ozone depletion began to increase especially above Antarctica, forming the Antarctic ozone hole in mid to late winter. The greatest depletion of ozone over Antarctica occurred in 1998.

During the 1960s, chemical companies manufactured chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) for use as spray-can propellants, refrigerants, foam-blowing agents, and solvents. CFCs were safer to use than alternatives because they were unusually inert.

In 1974, scientists discovered that CFCs in the stratosphere can be broken down by solar ultraviolet radiation, releasing atoms of chlorine. One atom of chlorine can destroy 100,000 molecules of ozone. Their work earned earned the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1995.

In 1985, with discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole, scientists and political leaders moved quickly to pass the United Nations Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, which took effect in 1989, severely limiting manufacturing of CFCs. By 1993, concentrations of CFCs in the atmosphere stopped increasing. By 1995, global average ozone depletion stopped increasing. By 1998, global average temperatures stopped increasing.

Humans had caused global warming beginning around 1970 by manufacturing CFCs. Humans had stopped the increase in global warming by passing the Montreal Protocol.

In 2014, the volcano Bárðarbunga in central Iceland began erupting basaltic lava flows, covering an area of 33 square miles within six months, the largest basaltic eruption since 1784. Average global temperatures began rising at five-times the rate observed between 1970 and 1998, reaching a maximum in 2016.

Temperatures increased by volcanic eruptions normally recover within a few years. Temperatures cooled until 2018 when Kilauea volcano in Hawaii erupted basaltic lava flows from the lower East Rift. These lava flows were much more extensive than typical in Hawaii, covering 39 square miles of land in three months. The rate of lava extrusion was nearly the same as for Bárðarbunga, but the eruption lasted half as long. Average global temperatures began rising again, causing 2020 to be nearly as warm as 2016.

Basaltic lavas contain exceptionally large amounts of chlorine and bromine gases. It only takes a small amount of these gases to reach the lower stratosphere to deplete the ozone layer. Ozone depletion is observed following most volcanic eruptions, peaking two years after the eruption stops.

Explosive volcanic eruptions cause ozone depletion but also eject water vapor and sulfur dioxide into the lower stratosphere forming an aerosol or mist that reflects and disperses sunlight, causing net global cooling for two to four years. Climate is warmed by basaltic lava flows and cooled by explosive eruptions.

Throughout Earth history, major, sudden global warming is contemporaneous with major basaltic lava flows—the larger the flow, the greater the warming.

It is the Bárðarbunga eruption in Iceland in 2014 that appears to have caused 2016 to be the hottest year on record. It was the Kilauea eruption in Hawaii during 2018 that appears to have caused 2020 to be nearly as hot.

If ozone depletion is the major cause of global warming, global temperatures are expected to decrease slowly throughout this century. Major warming predicted by computer climate models based on greenhouse-warming theory will not and cannot occur.

“Don’t you think my fellow scientists need to look at these very clear data carefully before we waste tens of trillions of dollars trying to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions?”

Hidden Benefits When It Comes to Board Games

Boy learning to play Endless Games’ Traffic Cop Game

The Korner’d Challenge Game from Endless Games

Traffic Cop from Endless Games

Some hidden benefits of Endless Games’ board games and card games have been exposed by special educators and parents of special needs children.

…we discovered that many of our games have elements that reveal some amazing talents, social skills, as well as physical and mental exercises.”

— Brian Turtle, National Sales Manager of Endless Games, Inc.

MATAWAN, NJ, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 / — When it comes to exciting, original, new board games, Endless Games has plenty of options for people, but in addition to the fun, some extra benefits are in play too.

Some hidden benefits of Endless Games’ board games and card games have been exposed by special educators and parents of special needs children.

“We didn’t set out to design games that specifically catered to special needs, but we discovered that many of our games have elements that reveal some amazing talents, social skills, as well as physical and mental exercises,” Brian Turtle, National Sales Manager of Endless Games, explained.

Recently, Endless Games’ The Korner’d Challenge, Dropsy Card Game and Mexican Train were announced as top toys for 2020 and featured in the Autism Live Holiday Guide. In 2019 the guide honorees included Traffic Cop Game and The Floor Is Lava.

Possibly the most interesting case is Endless Games’ The Korner’d Challenge Game, a puzzle that is also a game. This game revealed some curious discoveries during its play testing. The object of Korner’d is to be the first player to place all of his/her color or picture patterned tiles to match to a game board. “What we discovered was that Korner’d involves spatial relationships and matching. For many on the Autism Spectrum this is an area of strength. Young kids on the spectrum easily beat older children and adults at this game,” Turtle explained. “You could see that it was a tremendous boost in self-esteem and self-confidence.”

Therapists and parents have cited that Endless Games’ The Floor Is Lava helps with sensory issues as well as physical therapy, such as maintaining balance. Games like Traffic Cop, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, and Dropsy have been praised for learning left-and-right, following instructions, motor skills, executive functioning and respect for authority.

Often, Endless Games’ Mancala is used in schools for math practice, while Endless Games classic games, Chess, Checkers and Backgammon are all used in logic and strategic thought practices.

Will Trump's climate-change legacy policies cause meltdown, Florida floods and a worse pandemic?

River Thames rises 100 feet and floods UK Parliament

Big Ben & Parliament flooded 100 feet

Specialist on global warming warns of polar meltdown and high-seas, accelerated by Trump's eco-policies.

OXFORD, UK, January 15, 2021 / — As President Trump leaves the White House he has signed executive orders that dilute environmental protections in Alaska and the Arctic. His decisions could be good for American business; supporters claim that further exploiting Arctic timber, oil and gas deposits will not harm the US and will create thousands of jobs. Environmentalists fear that driving industry into the northern territories and pristine Arctic will accelerate global warming, lead to Arctic meltdown, and endanger species and the planet. Whichever camp is right, the end of Trump's turbulent term of office is a pivotal time for the science, commerce and politics of the near, medium and long term future of the planet.

Noel Hodson, in 1979 built the prototype Petrol-Electric hybrid car MIcrodot. He is a business planner and business change analyst who has lobbied since 1987 for policies that boost business while steering commerce towards a sustainable green future. His 1992 seminal work Teleworking Explained (Wiley & Sons) with US Telecommuting guru Gil Gordon, has at last, 30 years later, become mainstream policy for most major US and EU employers. The global giant Unilever today announced that to limit Coronavirus, that at least 30% of its staff will continue to work from home; to the dismay of city-centre landlords. Unilever is not alone and certainly not the first. In 1990-92 global multinational British Telecom emptied three high-rise London City office-blocks and gave them back to the landlords, sacrificing valuable long-leases in favour of allowing hundreds to work from home. A combination of the invention of the enabling technologies (1987-2020) and the measures to stop the Covid-19 pandemic (2021) has now boosted telecommuting. IBM and AT&T both embraced telecommuting back in 1990, with flexible work contracts and thousands of laptops issued to employees.

Hodson found that textbooks and economic analyses had very limited audiences in most countries. The early ambition to reduce commuting "Take the Work to the People – Not the People to the Work" promoted by innovative Californian Jack Nilles, did not catch-fire – even as wildfires, storms and hurricanes increased in number and intensity. In a bid to win popular understanding, Hodson wrote two novels, the utopian AD2516-After Global Warming, based on current advances in science and the dystopian The Wisdom of Alice Whitaker. This contemporary second novel tracks polar-meltdown, flooding New York and London, and based on the reality of Bird-Flu and other coronavirus epidemics, conjures up a killer coronavirus pandemic Glacier-Flu that kills 80% of humans, The inspired heroine, Alice Whitaker, initiates a new political order which evolves into a new world democracy, Again, thanks to Covid-19, both these novels are at last being read by the public and opinion formers. Everyone in the world, including President Trump, should read them, particularly in The Time of Covid.

Will Trump's golden villa Mar-a-Lago be inundated by the Caribbean waves – or will he heed the warnings in these very accessible novels and prepare sea defences that will ensure the survival of his dynasty? The main message of the business text books and the prophetic novels is Move to Higher Ground.

Dr. David Samadi’s men’s health book " the Ultimate Manual " emphasizes food choices matter for men fighting Covid-19. Available on Amazon

My book called "The Ultimate Manual" will give you the best roadmap to stay healthy and protect yourself against Covid 19 and other illnesses.”

— Dr. David Samadi

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2021 / — Covid-19 has posed a great danger for everyone but has particularly and profoundly attacked men more than women. This fact is discussed in Dr. David Samadi’s first book, The Ultimate MANual, Dr. Samadi’s Guide to Men’s Health and Wellness. More information in the future will likely uncover why men took a direct hit from the 2020 coronavirus resulting in more severe illness and death. Lessons learned so far are pandemic or not, guarding men’s health begins with healthy lifestyle habits, especially healthy food choices, helping improve immune response when faced with a potentially deadly virus.

This practical reminder is covered in an entire chapter in Dr. David Samadi’s book focusing on specific nutritional needs of men. The Ultimate MANual is a man’s one stop shop covering other lifestyle habits necessary for men to regain and reclaim their health. The book’s last chapter is devoted on helping men make healthy eating happen by suggesting foods to keep stocked in the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry, includes a two-week menu plan for healthy eating, and 24 simple yet delicious recipes containing nutrients especially beneficial for men.

“While no specific foods boost a person’s immunity, an overall balanced diet is a perfect start to fighting off a virus like Covid-19,” says Dr. David Samadi, Director of Men’s Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital, Roslyn, New York. “Whether there is such a thing as super foods is debatable. However, there are certain stand-out foods offering a healthy dose of antioxidants and valuable nutrients possibly boosting immunity that maximize men’s health.”

The Ultimate MANual recognizes that one of the big pillars promoting men’s health and wellness is food choices and following an overall healthy eating pattern. While not considered sexy or attention grabbing, healthy foods are considered the foundation of making men healthy for life.

In particular, foods rich in vitamins C and D and the mineral zinc, have been known to boost immunity. For instance, the COVID-19 pandemic focused on the possibility of these nutrients playing a key role in enhancing immunity. Vitamin C is a well-known friend to our immune system thanks to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Dr. Samadi recommends men choose foods rich in vitamin C such as berries, citrus fruits, and leafy green vegetables. Mushrooms, fortified milk, and fatty fish such as salmon are good sources of vitamin D, essential for producing antibodies necessary for immune functioning. The mineral zinc, found in foods such as oysters, beef, and Alaskan King crab, taps the brakes on out-of-control inflammation along with fighting infection helping bolster immune response when sick.

Over the years, Dr. Samadi has regularly shared his medical expertise on prostate cancer issues, tips on prevention, diagnosis, treatments, and insights on possible causes and newly released research. Dr. Samadi is now a medical contributor to Newsmax TV where he discusses topics concerning his urology and men’s health expertise along with his advice and views on current medical news, food and diet information, exercise, vitamins, and preventive health.

“My motivation in writing this book is to encourage men everywhere that they are the experts of their body and to take ownership of it,” exclaimed Dr. Samadi. “Getting and then staying as healthy as possible doesn’t just happen. It takes some willpower, motivation, and common sense in choosing nutritious foods the majority of the time along with regular exercise and other important lifestyle habits. My book helps men on this journey to reach their health goals in order to live their best, ultimate life possible.”

The Ultimate MANual is Dr. Samadi’s book is now available online both at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

ID Capital announces the fifth edition of Future Food Asia Awards – APAC’s premier AgriFoodTech competition, and its title partners for the FFA Conference.

SINGAPORE, January 15, 2021 / — AgriFoodTech in Asia Pacific continued to gain momentum and is pegged to attract a record level of venture and growth investment in 2020, despite headwinds from the coronavirus pandemic. While the pandemic highlighted supply chain vulnerabilities and prompted the need to rethink what food resilience means, it also accelerated trends in the region that saw consumers become more concerned with environmental sustainability and healthy lifestyles.

For the past four years Future Food Asia (FFA) has acted as springboard for innovators to blitz scale their businesses, and a catalyst in the sector. The platform has empowered 40+ early stage startups from Asia Pacific by providing them the stage to present their cutting-edge innovations and distributed over US$ 1 million in awards. As the voice of agrifood innovation in Asia Pacific, its annual Conference brings decision makers from leading agriculture and food corporations, influential investors, rising innovators and other key ecosystem players together.

For its 2021 edition Future Food Asia welcomes Cargill as its Title Partner and also to join the Jury, represented by Xiuling Guo, Managing Director, Cargill Global Edible Oil Solutions, Asia and Franck Monmont, Managing Director, Cargill Starches, Sweeteners and Texturizers, Asia. One of the world’s largest agricultural commodity traders and food processors, Cargill believes in the power of partnerships to drive long-lasting, far-reaching impact.

Supported by Singapore Economic Development Board since its inception, Future Food Asia is made possible due to the continued support from its partners:
• A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research), Singapore’s lead public research agency, once again associated to the FFA Jury as an expert partner;
• Dole Asia Holdings, is one of the world's largest producers and marketers of high-quality packaged and fresh fruit with operations covering more than 70 countries;

The Future Food Asia 2021 Conference will be held in Singapore and multiple satellite cities simultaneously in June 2021 and amplified virtually. Ten finalists selected by the FFA jury will showcase their innovations and compete for the US$ 100,000 grand prize, applications for which are now open at

“Our mission is to nourish the world in a safe, responsible and sustainable way. The world is in a constant state of change, and we must be in constant search of fresh, new innovations to help the world thrive. We view Asia not only as a strategic region, but also as a place rich in innovations for the future. We are delighted to partner with Future Food Asia on its 2021 Edition to drive innovation in the Agrifood sector. Together, we hope to bring new technologies and new ideas to life, which will eventually benefit customers and consumers not only in Asia, but around the world”, said Marcel Smits, Chairman of Cargill Asia Pacific and Global Head of Corporate Strategy.

“In many respects this 2021 edition is a turning point for FFA. To start with, we are delighted to see regional leaders stepping in and joining global companies in this journey. Also, as the agrifoodtech sector matures, the big promise of sustainability is about to move from a state of ‘theory’ to ‘assessment’. And finally talents from all walks of life start to come to agrifoodtech. All this is conducive to new approaches to building the future of food, and we will share more about it with our community in the coming months“, said Isabelle Decitre, Founder & CEO of ID Capital.
