Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

An Amazonian adventure: Walking the length of a very long river

CNN, By Ed Stafford, Special to CNN, July 31, 2010

Wading through murky waters is just part of another day in the rain forest for Stafford.
He and Cho hope to reach the end of the Amazon on August 9 --
859 days after Ed set off on April 2, 2008.

  • Stafford: "CNN's commitment to following us has put a spring in our steps."
  • A navigation error meant an extra four-day trek in the jungle
  • They hope to reach the end of the Amazon in about 11 days
  • "We wash whenever we can ... bacteria are rife ... Hygiene is vital"

Editor's Note: Ed Stafford, 34, from Leicestershire, central England, has been walking the length Amazon River since April 2, 2008, to raise awareness of the region. He began his trek at the source of the river in Peru, encountering pit vipers, electric eels, anaconda, mosquitoes and scorpions. He was joined in July 2008 by Gadiel "Cho" Sanchez Rivera. The pair are due to reach the shores of the Atlantic on August 9. During his trek Ed has blogged using a laptop and a satellite internet link. You can follow his journey on the Walking the Amazon website. Here, he describes a typical day.

(CNN) -- With eleven days to go things are already beginning to change for Cho and I.

CNN and the media at home in the UK have spread the news about our 'little jungle walk' and the messages that are coming through to the website are just unbelievable.

If you've left one thank you so much - from Cho and me - we have been blown away.

CNN's commitment to following us has put a spring in our steps which is great as timings-wise we have our backs to the wall now.

We (I) made a navigation error a few days back misreading an electricity pylon as a road on Google Earth.

With no road, we were back into the jungle for a rude extra four to five days which we're in the middle of now. Cut to ribbons by razor grass we made 8.6km today. A 5am start tomorrow should help us make up lost time.

This expedition is already largely a memory and so I deliberately enjoyed sipping my coffee gazing into the fire's flames last night.

Cho and I often don't speak - quite content in our own little worlds as the beans bubble and the smoke escapes. We're both becoming acutely aware that 'our little worlds' here in the jungle are very soon coming to an end.

The freedom of living in the jungle for two and a half years has been wonderful; you can roam where you want and as we wash in the stream at the end of a long days walking, quite often no-one sees you but the birds and the ants.

Life in London in a fortnight may take some slight adjusting to.

I think though that Cho's due for a bigger culture shock than me when we finish.

Although he's going back to Peru first to see his family, we have plans in place to bring him to the UK.

Two years ago he'd never seen an escalator, been out of the country, or flown on a plane.

Now he's launching himself into a new adventure in England. We'll stay in touch with our friends at CNN and hope that they follow Cho's tweets through the upcoming months at "JungleCho".

For me the excitement of being so close to achieving my dream is hard to contain.

Not much more than a week and it will be complete.

I quoted Muhammad Ali on my twitter account recently: "Don't count the days. Make the days count."

After two-and-a-half year's of walking that's easier said than done.
