Giant Sequoia Lands Coalition Update: Year Two Brings Significant Progress in Push to Protect Giant Sequoias Threatened by Unprecedented Wildfire Risk

Save the Redwoods League

Officials from the State of California, USDA Forest Service, National Park Service, Tule River Indian Tribe of California, Save the Redwoods League, and other members of the Giant Sequoia Lands Coalition (GSLC) today announced significant progress in their work to protect the world’s largest tree species from severe wildfires. In its 2023 Progress Report for Saving the Sequoias, GSLC confirms that coalition partners have more than doubled the acres across the giant sequoia range where treatments are underway. In its second year of large-scale collaboration, the coalition has exceeded its goals with ecosystem wide achievements: Treated nearly 9,900 acres in 28 giant sequoia groves—more than twice the acreage treated in 2022. This brings the total giant sequoia grove acres treated since the extreme 2020-21 wildfires to 14,143 out of 26,000; Planted more than 294,000 native tree seedlings in severely burned areas, bringing the total to more than 542,000 in two years; Initiated and hosted research studies by academic, government, and nonprofit entities; Revived cultural practices and expanded co-stewardship agreements with tribes and nonprofits The full 2023 progress report is available here. “The Giant Sequoia Lands Coalition made significant progress in 2023 to increase wildfire resilience in our forests and communities,” said coalition Co-Chair Clay Jordan, who is also superintendent of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. “We are realizing the founding goal of the coalition: accelerating the pace and scale of giant sequoia restoration by close coordination and collaboration. Forest treatment is not a one-time event, but a long-term commitment to actively stewarding and restoring these complex natural systems. Everyone benefits from the efficiencies and efficacy of the coalition’s combined efforts—the forest most of all.” GSLC’s work in 2023 was managed by 941 people at a cost of $32.9 million. GSLC conducted initial restoration treatments on 9,886 of 26,000 acres in 28 of approximately 80 groves, which represents more than twice the amount of giant sequoia grove acres treated than the previous year. This restoration work increases the wildfire resilience of the groves by reducing the amount of hazardous and combustible plant materials (fuels) through manual and mechanical fuels reduction, prescribed fires and cultural burning practices. GSLC also worked to improve forest health through reforestation and planted more than 290,000 locally sourced native trees, including 119,000 giant sequoias. Combined with the previous year, the coalition has now planted more than 542,000 trees in and around the sequoia groves. These reforestation projects focus on areas that experienced uncharacteristically high wildfire intensity where seed trees have died, burned seeds were not able to develop, and minimal regeneration has occurred naturally. “Our work to ensure a wildfire-resilient future for giant sequoias lives at the scientific intersection of forest ecology, wildfire and climate studies,” said Dr. Joanna Nelson, Ph.D., director of science and conservation planning for Save the Redwoods League and co-lead of the GSLC science committee. “We are simultaneously applying the latest evidence-based techniques and advancing the field’s understanding through research. As we coordinate research and adaptive management across the coalition, we boost our ability to steward giant sequoias. This is a long-term challenge with long-term solutions, and we are starting the long-term with timely action, now.” “While we benefited from a relatively quiet fire season in 2023, what happens this year is impossible to predict, so we must prepare for the worst,” continued Nelson. “We urge elected officials and policymakers to continue to provide funding and personnel, enact policy changes and help us reduce fuels now so we can continue to address the problem at scale.” Giant sequoias are the largest trees in the world, and severe wildfires have killed up to 20% of the mature trees since 2015. The two federal agencies that own and manage the majority of giant sequoia lands‒USDA Forest Service and National Park Service‒implemented emergency actions in 2023 to accelerate the pace and scale of work. The members of the Giant Sequoia Lands Coalition include: National Park Service, represented by Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and Yosemite National Park USDA Forest Service, represented by the Sequoia National Forest, Giant Sequoia National Monument, Sierra National Forest, and Tahoe National Forest Tule River Indian Tribe of California, stewards of all or parts of five sequoia groves Bureau of Land Management, stewards of Case Mountain Extensive Recreation Management Area California State Parks, stewards of Calaveras Big Trees State Park California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), stewards of Mountain Home Demonstration State Forest University of California, Berkeley, stewards of Whitaker’s Forest Tulare County, stewards of Balch Park GSLC Affiliate Members: American Forests, Ancient Forest Society, Giant Sequoia National Monument Association, Save the Redwoods League, Sequoia Parks Conservancy, Southern Sierra Conservancy, Stanislaus National Forest, US Geological Survey—Western Ecological Research Center and Yosemite Conservancy. Note to media: Images of GSLC projects and places are available for download here. * * * About Giant Sequoia Lands Coalition The Giant Sequoia Lands Coalition (GSLC) is a landscape-scale, multi-partner collaboration dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of giant sequoia grove ecosystems. Our coalition is composed of all federal, tribal, state and local agencies and organizations that manage giant sequoia groves in public, tribal or private nonprofit ownership. Our affiliate partners include select federal and state conservation agencies, nongovernmental organization conservation groups, and academic research partners with a shared commitment to protect and steward giant sequoias and their ecosystems from emerging threats associated with climate change and the extended absence of natural, low-severity wildfire processes on the landscape.

Crypto Analyst Mark Yusko, predicts a 300% Rise For Ethereum, Outperforming Bitcoin

Kangamoon

In a recent video, world-renowned crypto analyst Mark Yusko outlined that he’s bullish about Ethereum. Over the next year, Yusko believes that Ethereum could offer up to 300% returns, during which it would likely outperform Bitcoin. Meanwhile, a hot new DeFi presale is building momentum. With stage 2 of its presale almost sold out, investors are flocking to maximize their potential returns. Ethereum Bulls Invest $400m in 4 Days Ethereum bulls doubled down on their investment last week. As Bitcoin continues to surge, rumors suggest that Ethereum could gain even more traction as investors diversify into the altcoin market. This has increased Ethereum's open interest. According to data from CoinGlass, ETH open interest increased from $11.4 billion to $11.8 billion from March 1 to March 4. During the same timeframe, Ethereum’s price increased by 16.04%. Presently, Ethereum is trading at $3,525 and has a daily trading volume of $17.4 billion. Having already experienced consecutive price increases over the last week, analysts such as Mark Yusko believe Ethereum could outperform Bitcoin in 2024. Bitcoin Passes $65,000 In the last week, Bitcoin's price increased by 5.77%. Bitcoin is now trading at $65,277 and has a daily trading volume of $42.2 billion. This recent surge has triggered a market-wide rally, with many altcoins seeing returns of over 40%. As Bitcoin continues to pursue its former all-time high of $68,789.63, experts are predicting how high Bitcoin could go. Given its halving event is just one month away, the market is bullish. Some experts believe that Bitcoin could pass $100,000, while others suggest that $80,000 is a more realistic prediction. KangaMoon (KANG) Raises Over $500,000 Amid the Bitcoin hype, KangaMoon (KANG) is gaining significant traction. This innovative new presale has already hit several major milestones, and its utility token, $KANG, has increased in value by 50%. With less than 20% of its stage 2 supply remaining, crypto enthusiasts are buying $KANG at record rates. KangaMoon puts a unique spin on meme coins. Unlike other meme coins, which often surge due to market hype, KangaMoon looks to build a lucrative DeFi community with P2E gameplay and social-fi rewards. The project will showcase an action-paced P2E game where players can battle characters and bet on outcomes. At the same time, users will be rewarded for their social interactions and will have the opportunity to complete challenges for additional rewards. By incentivizing social activity, KangaMoon aims to build one of the best DeFi communities in the world. So far, it's been a big hit. The project quickly sold out during the first stage of its presale, and stage two is almost sold out. This growth shows investors are excited about KangaMoon’s community, which, alongside predicted returns of 220% during its presale, has put $KANG in the spotlight. Can KangaMoon Go Mainstream? KangaMoon provides a solution to one of the DeFi market's biggest problems– it gives investors a community. This concept has already proven to be popular, and as a result, experts believe that KangaMoon could surge 100x once it launched on major exchanges.

Centre for Neuro Skills Study Finds Differences in Sleep Patterns Between Men and Women with Post-Traumatic Brain Injury

Centre for Neuro Skills

Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a premier provider of traumatic and acquired brain injury rehabilitation services, has shared findings from a study researching sleep-wake disturbances, published in Neurotrauma Reports on January 3, 2024. They found that sleep deficits are correlated with poorer brain injury patient outcomes (verbal skills, depression issues), as monitored by therapists and administrators at CNS. The study included data from 57 individuals between the ages of 18-70 who sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). CNS collected the data between 2018-2020 at its in-house sleep centers in Dallas and Bakersfield. “Overall, we found that lack of REM sleep negatively impacts memory and learning for TBI patients,” says Dr. Stefanie Howell, a neuroscientist at CNS. “In research, we must also consider additional variables that may impact our results. This includes biological variables such as sex, as biological sex does impact sleep. Our research found that women achieve REM sleep far less than men. Additionally, a decrease in REM sleep was associated with poorer learning and memory task performance, indicating a potential impact on outcome and recovery.” In addition to biological sex, CNS evaluated several sleep medications to determine if their use impacted sleep for TBI patients. Howell said “medications do not seem to be impacting results between men and women; however, the use of melatonin was associated with improved REM sleep and may therefore be of potential short-term benefit to TBI patients. It is important to note that over-the-counter melatonin options are variable due to formula ingredients.” “Through research, we’ve found that while sleep supplements in the benzodiazepine family may cause someone to fall asleep, they suppress REM sleep, which is crucial for memory recollection and improved learning,” says Dr. Brent Masel, executive vice president of medical affairs at CNS. “Melatonin was found to help improve REM sleep in the short term, but it’s important to note that long-term use can be habit-forming. I cannot stress this enough – the best medication is no medication.” In 2021, CNS published two other studies regarding sleep-wake disturbances post-stroke. The first evaluated the incidence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the second study considered the anatomical location of the injury (stroke). *** About Centre for Neuro Skills Centre for Neuro Skills is an experienced and respected world leader in providing intensive rehabilitation and medical programs for those recovering from all types of brain injury. CNS covers a full spectrum of advanced care from residential and assisted living to outpatient/day treatment. Founded by Dr. Mark Ashley in 1980, CNS has seven locations in California and Texas.

XRP (XRP), BNB (BNB), and KangaMoon (KANG) Continue Their Stellar Performance With Holder Excitement Increasing - Here’s Why

Kangamoon

Recently, XRP (XRP), BNB (BNB), and KangaMoon (KANG) have experienced tremendous growth. Thus fueling the crypto community’s sense of hope. While XRP and BNB are already-established cryptos, KANG is a Stage 2 presale star that could evolve into the next 100x meme coin in 2024. Keep reading to find out why. Ali Martinez Makes a Bullish XRP Price Prediction XRP (XRP) has been on a tear lately. As per CoinMarketCap data, the XRP price has jumped from $0.50 to $0.59 in the past 30 days. Its market cap also increased from $27B to $32B during that time. Crypto analyst Ali Martinez claims that this bullish trend may continue. In his tweet, Martinez predicts this crypto will surge to $0.65 soon. From a technical analysis perspective, the future looks bright for the XRP crypto. In other words, over 22 technical indicators are flashing green for it. Additionally, XRP now trades above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. Due to all these reasons, analysts predict that XRP will reach a value of $0.81 within Q2 of 2024. BNB (BNB): Breaches the $400 Barrier Meanwhile, BNB (BNB) has also seen tremendous growth. The BNB price has surged from $302 to $407 in the last month alone. These are levels not seen since April 2022. The BNB market cap pumped from $45B to $60B in that period. According to More Crypto Online’s new YouTube video, this crypto may grow to $597 soon. BNB is now trading above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. Furthermore, this crypto has experienced 18/30 (60%) green trading days. All these factors have caused experts in the crypto field to make a bullish BNB price prediction. They forecast a potential jump to $526 for the BNB crypto within Q2 of 2024. KangaMoon (KANG): A Meme Coin Surging by 50% KangaMoon (KANG) is making a name for itself in the meme coin space, and it’s doing so at an alarming rate. The presale has raised nearly $500K. People are interested in this one-of-a-kind meme coin. KANG will have actual utility, unlike 99% of meme coins currently available. KANG will be used as in-game currency on KangaMoon’s upcoming P2E game. Players will use this meme coin to upgrade their characters or purchase in-game items. Not only that, KANG holders gain access to exclusive challenges that will run on a weekly/monthly and quarterly basis. By winning these challenges, you earn extra tokens and in-game items. KANG stands out because you can win tokens during its presale just by sharing posts on social media. This fusion of Play-to-Earn (P2E) and Social-Fi elements could generate the most active meme community. In Stage 2 of its presale, this meme coin costs merely $0.0075. Those who bought it early are enjoying a 50% ROI. However, remember that KangaMoon will enter the P2E NFT games market, which Yahoo Finance valued at $329M in 2022. Thus, its future looks bright, and experts predict a 100x pump once KANG hits exchanges in Q2 of 2024. Will KangaMoon Stand Out From XRP and BNB? With a low market cap of $7.5M, KangaMoon positions itself for rapid growth. To clarify, KANG requires fewer new funds to propel its price to higher levels. Therefore, KANG stands out from XRP and BNB and emerges as one of the top meme coins to watch. If interested, follow the links below for a 10% bonus on each purchase.

MicroSalt revolutionises salt intake with low sodium technology and big growth plans

MicroSalt PLC

MicroSalt PLC (AIM: SALT) CEO Rick Guiney tells Proactive's Stephen Gunnion that the recently listed company specialises in innovative food technology that enhances the flavour of salt with significantly less sodium through patented technology. This technology changes the salt crystal's size, increasing its surface area for a fuller flavour without excess sodium intake, a major global health concern. The company targets food manufacturers, offering a product with the same functionality as traditional salt but processed differently. Additionally, MicroSalt aims to enter consumer markets, with products already available on Amazon in the UK and in about 500 stores in the US. MicroSalt's technology is distinguished by an exclusive patent, marking a significant advancement in efforts to reduce sodium consumption over the past two decades. The company's strategy includes expanding into the UK retail market, engaging with major supermarket groups to offer MicroSalt on shelves and incorporate it into their own brands, aiming for products like crisps to retain their taste while having 50% less sodium. The decision to list on the AIM market reflects London's receptivity to small food technology firms and its strategic importance in the food and ingredients sector. MicroSalt's IPO aims to raise public awareness about its low-sodium solution and the broader health issues related to sodium intake. Regulatory support for low sodium initiatives is significant, with governments recognizing the health and economic benefits of reducing sodium consumption. MicroSalt has also announced an export collaboration with American Trading International (ATI), facilitating access to 90 markets through ATI's distribution network, and enhancing the company's growth prospects. Looking ahead, MicroSalt anticipates significant developments in 2024 and 2025 as it expands its reach to consumers and large food manufacturers.
