Take a Walk in the Biodiversity Park

first_imgA walk in the park is good for your spirit.  That much we already knew.  Researchers at the University of Sheffield now claim, though, that the more biodiversity in the park, the better: “Dr Richard Fuller and colleagues from the University’s Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, and De Montfort University in Leicester, have been able to show that biologically complex surroundings appear to enhance a person’s well-being more than those spaces less rich in species.”Urban planners and city citizens should place value on preserving open space near town, accessible to people.  The most biodiverse parks of all are the natural ones.  An urban park with all oaks and grass is better than nothing, but how about trying one with dozens of species of trees and herbaceous plants and a variety of birds and wild animals?  (picture 1, picture 2 picture 3)  See what effect it has on your sense of well-being.  Think of it as a science project.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Derrick Rose signs with Minnesota, reunites with Thibodeau

first_imgPacquiao faces Matthysse Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH View comments Rose took some time off earlier this season to evaluate his options. He’s joining a Timberwolves team bidding for its first postseason trip since 2004, and entered play Thursday holding the sixth seed in a very close Western Conference race — where four games separate the eight teams from third place to 10th.He said he isn’t worried about role, and said he can fit in alongside fellow Wolves point guards Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones.“I think I can play with anybody, to tell you the truth,” Rose said. “I know the game. I’m not a selfish player. I’m not here for stats or anything like that. I just want to win and help this team and franchise win.”Rose averaged 9.8 points with the Cavaliers this season. For his career, Rose is averaging 19.2 points and 5.8 assists.

Rose spent his first eight NBA years in Chicago, five of those with Thibodeau as his coach. He was with New York last season and started this season with Cleveland, but appeared in only 16 games with the Cavaliers largely because of injuries.“We just thought he could help the team,” Thibodeau said. “That’s what our expectations are: come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win. … He’s been around, he’s been in a lot of games. I think he’s seen a lot of different things, he’s a familiar with what we’re doing, he’s played with some of the guys we have. So that’s a plus.” Typhoon ‘Tisoy’ threatens Games The Cavaliers traded the former All-Star to Utah last month as part of the massive restructuring of their team, and the Jazz waived him shortly afterward.Rose has been working out since, and this week became a father again — just three days before completing the deal with the Timberwolves, who were willing to wait for his new daughter to arrive before asking him to make the move.“I think I’m familiar with a lot of guys that’s here,” Rose said. “Just staying ready and coming here and trying to make it to the playoffs and I feel like I can help in some way.”Miami guard Dwyane Wade, who was teammates with Rose earlier this season in Cleveland, said he expected Rose and Thibodeau would reunite — and insisted the 29-year-old guard still, when healthy, can be elite.“He was the best player in training camp,” Wade said, noting that LeBron James was hurt for most of Cavs camp last fall. “It’s always been about health with D-Rose.”ADVERTISEMENT Google honors food scientist, banana ketchup inventor and war hero Maria Orosa Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC MOST READ Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university PLAY LIST 01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Pussycat Dolls set for reunion tour after 10-year hiatus Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
