* National Wildlife DayNational Wildlife Day

National Wildlife Day serves to bring awareness to the number of endangered animals nationally as well as globally, that need to be preserved and rescued from their demise each year, but also to acknowledge U.S. zoos and outstanding animal sanctuaries for everything they do to help preserve this planet's animals and educate the public about conservation - especially to children....our animal's future caretakers and conservationists. National Wildlife Day will also encourage citizens to stand up and fight for animals that need a voice, visit their local zoo more often - and especially on National Wildlife Day and donate what they can to worthy organizations that make a difference in the lives of our beloved animal friends. Look up your local zoo or animal sanctuary, sponsor a favorite animal, donate or volunteer to help in any way you can.

* OU Water Project CelebrationOU Water Project Celebration

Time: 4:00 pm

ATHENS, Ohio (Aug. 29, 2014) - A number of Ohio University departments and schools recently collaborated to produce The Water Project - an interactive website providing information about water issues in text, photography, video and infographics, to the Appalachian region. A special launch and reception event will take place Thursday, Sept. 4, at 4 p.m., to celebrate the project and its creators. The event, which will take place in the lobby of the Steven L. Schoonover Center for Communication at 20 W. Union Street, is free and open to the public. The School of Visual Communication, along with WOUB Public Media and in collaboration with OHIO’s Department of Geography, E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, School of Communication Studies, School of Media Arts and Studies and The Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, have joined to provide the public with an easy way to find information about issues that may affect their water resources. According to WOUB Public Media General Manager Tom Hodson, the project was started with the community in mind. “Water is really our most important resource,” said Hodson, WOUB Public Media general manager. “It’s really taken for granted even though it touches multiple parts of our lives. We wanted to have a ‘go to’ place where the community could get different perspectives on issues involving water.” The Water Project offers text and video with hopes of being an incubator for ideas and solutions. Sections of the site will include information on topics such as Watershed, Industry, Connection and Biodiversity. “As we kicked around ideas for a collaborative project, it became obvious that the issue of water quality is of critical importance to the region,” said Andy Alexander, a Scripps Howard Visiting professional in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. “But we also recognized there is enormous expertise about water quality throughout the university.” Scripps College of Communication Dean Scott Titsworth said the content tied various units together in a meaningful way. “The importance of the project for our region, coupled with the complex issues surrounding regional water quality issues, made this an ideal project for our attention,” he said. “Not only are multiple units in the Scripps College represented, but we also have colleagues from the Voinovich School and the Department of Geography who have contributed to this project. This project represents the very best of what can happen when the resources of a university are brought to bear on an issue of importance to our community.” Future plans include the addition of blogs, discussion forums and editorial pieces.

* People's Climate March!People's Climate March!

In September, heads of state are going to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line, we will take a weekend and use it to bend the course of history. In New York City there will be an unprecedented climate mobilization – in size, beauty, and impact. Our demand is a world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. In short, a world safe from the ravages of climate change. This moment will not be just about New York or the United States. Heads of state from around the world will be there, as will the attention of global media. We know that no single meeting or summit will “solve climate change” and in many ways this moment will not even really be about the summit. We want this moment to be about us – the people who are standing up in our communities, to organize, to build power, and to shift power to a just, safe, peaceful world.

* Southward EquinoxSouthward Equinox

Southward (September) Equinox The term equinox can also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens. The name "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because around the equinox, night and day are about equal length. The Southward equinox is the moment when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. Due to differences between the calendar year and the tropical year, the Southward equinox can occur at any time from the 22nd to the 24th day of September. At the equinox, the sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west. In the Northern Hemisphere the Southward equinox is known as the autumnal equinox. In the Southern Hemisphere it is known as the vernal or spring equinox.
