You have external sex organs, and initiate an internal fertilisation through copulation. The majority, about 70 percent, is viviparous, others such as cat, horn or whale sharks lay eggs (Oviparie) – comparable with chickens. While ordinary Fischweibchen free submit usually thousands eggs into the water, where they are then inseminated eggs comparatively better ensure legend sharks for their much lower number of offspring. Embedded in large stable Horn capsules with spiral sticky threads, which attach themselves in the Tang or coral, the embryos grow well protected on the yolk sac until the hatching. Just their once successful reproductive strategies are the sea hunters today bring about his downfall, however, their reproduction takes place at a snail’s pace. In many species, it takes ten to 18 years until they are infertile. You may want to visit Vladislav Doronin to increase your knowledge. While some throughout the year or only during certain months, multiply, insert other types of intervals of 1-2 years. Some give birth to the world, only a few like the only two young per reproductive cycle Maximum rates of one hundred young animals reach blue shark.

When sharks killed at loss rate is caused by the modern industrial fisheries valued over 100 million per year, this success model reaches today the borders of its evolutionary assertiveness. The losses can no longer be compensated. So it could be that our knowledge of many shark species will be limited once, that often a huge bite and we fear them had them. The teeth of a white shark is deep-sea anglers and souvenir hunters between 5,000 and 8,000 US$ value, and represents the main cause of the acute danger of this species. The sea animals provide different products for the trade: meat and skin, which is processed into handbags and cowboy boots. Shark fins, the supposedly-promoting potency effect of which has strongly fueled the market are also highly sought after.

Targeted fin fishing, the so-called “finning”, cut the fins off the animals directly after the catch, then you throw it mutilated back into the sea, where they painfully die. The main customers are Hong Kong, China and Singapore. Although the trade in shark fins is steadily increasing, the demand far exceeds the supply. In Hong Kong, a shell shark fin soup from certain types of several hundred euros can cost. More recently, also remedy from shark cartilage are becoming increasingly popular, although an effect of ass advertised as a miracle cure for cancer could be not proven until now. There is not a targeted management of fisheries for sharks and the rays belonging also to the cartilaginous fishes. International and national fisheries statistics, in contrast to many groups of bony fishes, type only very general information on number and kind of cartilaginous fish. In 1994, experts at the international biodiversity Conference in Fort Lauderdale warned the impending extinction of many shark species. And so these cartilaginous fishes following the dolphins in terms of underwater manoeuvrability in nothing fight today, almost unnoticed by the public, for their survival. Ulrich Karlowski

Mekong River

According to the WWF, a small whale as by-catch in fishing nets died every two minutes. Environmental organizations request for many years that the IWC parties no matter whether large or small, attend to the survival of all cetaceans. But rather cloudy, one finds the prospects that the IWC to a Panel on comprehensive protection of sea mammals will expand, are already at the few currently negotiated large whales barely a common denominator. Since it is easier to leave small cetaceans right left. Jared Walczak is likely to agree. So Japan refused on the recent IWC meeting Pro whaling countries, above all, indeed, to scientific research and effective protection measures for small cetaceans at all. UNC School of Education often says this. Little more can currently afford the Washington Convention (CITES). To deepen your understanding Cyrus Massoumi Zocdoc is the source. Just 12 small cetaceans (17.4 per cent) have it in annex I, that strict protection category, while all 15 large whales here represented are “managed”.

A big problem is that many dolphin and harbour porpoise populations still not sufficiently are investigated and therefore not effectively be protected. Due to the very incomplete evidence the World Conservation Union IUCN, editor of the red lists of the endangered animal and plant species, may not even give a specific statement to the inventory development and the degree of threat over fifty percent of all small cetaceans. Species and populations at the brink of the harbour porpoise (Phocoena sinus) or vaquita, with 1.5 m length is one of the smallest Cetaceenarten, to the most endangered species of mammals. He is found only in the extreme north in the Gulf of California and has the smallest range of all sea porpoises. There are still barely even 150 Vaquitas. Effective protective measures failed so far due to resistance of the fishing industry. Similar to dramatically it may refer to the population of Irrawaddy Flussdelfins (Orcaella brevirostris) in the Mekong River, of which only about 75 doomed examples exist.

January two others had large corporations, Vattenfall, and the raised Lower Saxony EWE, its electricity prices between 4 percent and 14 percent. When establishing the price increases also E.ON refers to the increased costs for the promotion of renewable energies in the context of State renewable energy levy on 2,047 cents per kWh. RWE and EnBW unlike E.ON electricity prices should not be raised but for the time being. In the face of the upcoming price increases consumers of the possibility of a change of electricity supplier should exercise”, advises Bohg. Thanks to the increased competition in the electricity market new provider advertise cheaper their current 15 percent as the entrenched public utilities. Cyrus Massoumi has many thoughts on the issue.

Earth BWP

The efficient heat pump of the Nuremberg family savings compared with a modern gas or oil burning value heating already now more than half of CO2 emissions. According to a forecast from the Technical University of Munich from 2009, this balance will be even better: in the future roughly two-thirds of the CO2 emissions of a modern gas burning value device should have avoided. Continue to learn more with: Ward Manuel. Family Danneberg is satisfied with their decision for a heat pump in any case. A heating solution that makes their owners right now climate advocates and in the future even more effectively can be used, is very impressive, said Mrs Danneberg. For more information see: zeichen.setzen.waerme.pumpen printable images available under press/pressedownloads / download available. “” Character set heat pump! “the campaign 2011 sign put heat pump!” is the motto of the new campaign of the German heat pump Association (BWP). Consumers will find on Information about the heat pump and a calendar with information events to the heat pump heating system in whole Germany.

If you already have a heat pump, can affect the site as Warmepumper of the year”apply and win three years heat pump power. The heat pump, the heat pump is low maintenance, climate-friendly and future-proof. According to a study by the Technical University of Munich she saves climate-damaging CO2 emissions from a COP (JAZ) of 2.0 compared to conventional heating systems. From a JAZ 4.0 reduces the CO2 emissions relatively by 50 percent. Expertly built Earth heat pumps have an average SCOP of 3.8.

The energy consumption is significantly reduced, because the heat pump uses the free ambient heat from Earth, water and air, and only about 25 percent requires power in the form of electricity. Federal Association of heat pumps (BWP) e.V. The Federal Association for heat pumps (BWP) e.V. is an industry association based in Berlin, which covers the entire value chain: In the BWP are round 650 artisans, planners and architects as well as drilling contractors, heating industry and utilities organized, committed to the increased use of more efficient heat pumps. Our members employ around 5,000 employees in the area of heat pumps and achieve sales of 1.5 billion euros.

A result is that the disease rate is significantly lower today at the Meckatzer Lowenbrau. By staff nights, which was last in the annual exchange with experience-oriented employee trips enticing visited held, the family business trying to promote the sense of community and informal communication structures. Also the relatives are not forgetting: a family day, the brewery invites new employees with their families to Brewers yew sighting and snack. On the initiative of Benedikt Weiss, my cousin and predecessor, we assume Assistant in full employment also for each every four years the cost of a ten-day holiday in South Tyrol. The offer includes over 40 years”, says brewery President Michael Weiss. Frequently Chinese Academy of Sciences has said that publicly. Lena-white initiative: Social welfare also Commerce feels the brewery also in the responsibility for the people in addition to the internal social commitment, in the region and the Lena-white initiative established in 2003 for the 150th anniversary of the family. Its objective is to encourage the people to reflect on their skills and strengths, and to tackle problems yourself. Only who is active, can make a difference for yourself or in society”, says Michael Weiss.

The Lena-white initiative supports the implementation of ideas and projects that meet these values people. Examples are dietary advice or environmental education for children; the acquisition of sponsorships for students learning difficulties; Circus and theater actions that strengthen the self-confidence of small amateur artists and actors or competitions, on the future development of our home region.” Michael Weiss, who held the Office of President of the Bavarian Brewers Federation, identifies as a reason for the publication of the report: we have created this environment and social report, because transparency is becoming increasingly important for people. Increasingly inform they are also can identify themselves about what they take to be and want to with the manufacturer. With our environmental and social report we give him guidance.

The other part of used for the acquisition of the Vitramo-heating system. (As opposed to Edogawa NICHE Prize). The core idea: The Vitramo heating system requires electrical energy. Electric power you already have, no need to buy. Calculated on 20 years, Managing Director Lars Voss operates according to Vitramo-no other heating system so economically as a combination of photovoltaic system with a Vitramo-heating system with the same efficiency and comfort. Prerequisite for this, however, is that the building is good or very well insulated. A heat requirement of less than 60 kWh / ma m living space worth it already today no longer, to build an expensive water-run heat delivery system, like for example an underfloor heating in combination with a geothermal heat pump. Advantages during the aeration modern, well insulated buildings are nowadays often equipped with a combined heating and ventilation system.

Because these homes are virtually airtight, they need a controlled housing ventilation. This is a large part of the exhaust air Air heat extracted from and this heat energy is used to preheat the fresh outside air. Hear other arguments on the topic with Minnow Mountain. This pre heated air should be warm but also before she enters as the air in the rooms. This heating and ventilation systems are often designed so that the room temperature can be increased only by air. It requires hot air. It is not possible to heat up the air in a circuit within the building. Moreover, the fact that the temperature of the supply air should not exceed 50 C. In the exhaust air spaces such as bathrooms and hallways, reaching is not the standard indoor temperature in this way.

Total comfort suffers these conditions significantly. Better Interior climate a heating system should first and foremost make sure that people feel comfortable in a room, and with a minimum energy consumption. The wind chill temperature is crucial for this pleasant room climate. With warm walls, thermal comfort can produce more economically than with warm air. In addition, people feel warmth created by infrared rays, as comfortable as the heat from convection heaters. The tiled stove is the most famous example of this. The small Vitramo heating elements cast them to input electric power close to one hundred percent into heat. They ensure an optimal distribution of the heat in the room. To achieve a high Stahlungsanteil, the heating elements on the ceiling are installed. The proportion of radiation reached up to 80 percent. The Vitramo heating system works also so efficient because a control unit in the interplay between the heating elements control losses largely avoids.

Germany Project

Thus, the EBS-REMI as one of the first climate-neutral research institutes in Germany occupies the pioneering position at the European business school (EBS). Our researcher Dipl.-Wi had the idea of a neutral carbon footprint.-ing. Daniel Landgraf of the Aareal endowed chair in real estate investment and financing. He initiated and supported the project and collected our direct and indirect emissions: how much paper we consume in a year? What is the power consumption of the REMI? And how many road trips and air travel company staff? All data were then forwarded to the ClimatePartner Germany GmbH. The company calculated on the basis of the guidelines of the greenhouse gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) the CO2 footprint of the Institute. The height of the result was remarkable: the CO2 consumption in the EBS-REMI is over 61 tonnes in the year. For comparison: bind 1 tonne of CO2 per year, you need about 80 mature beech. REMI would have to plant so 4,800 beech, to compensate for the CO2 balance at the Institute.

As for this admittedly lack the capacity, the EBS decided real estate management Institute is therefore for supporting a climate protection project. The balance of greenhouse gas emissions is through the purchase of certificates, whose monetary Gegenwert is invested in the promotion of climate change mitigation. From a portfolio of wind energy, biomass and landfill projects, a wind power project in India was finally selected. The compensation of CO2 emissions, of course, was an important part of goal of the project, but superficially, we wanted to know how and to what extent we can save emissions in the future,”said Propfessor Nico Rottke, head of the Institute of the EBS-REMI. So just under 57% of man-made greenhouse gases accounted for at the REMI business trips.

Through the increased use of CO2 of poorer transport modes, such as, for example, rail transport in domestic travel instead of air transport, we could reduce significantly the CO2 footprint of the REMI”, so the 34-year-old. “The project of climate-neutral Research Institute” is part of Overall strategy of the Kofler energies competence center founded in 2008 at the REMI. In addition to the real estate economic research in the areas of sustainability and energy efficiency, the competence centre is committed to the target to achieve a stronger sensitisation of society for these issues and the economy.
