I always prefer Brzezinski's histories when narrated by Hollywood's most loquacious cowboys. How could we forget Rompin' Ronnie's rendition of "The Evil Empire", a serial in 3 parts.

What is BREEAM? Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method.

“BREEAM, developed by the renowned building science center BRE (Building Research Establishment), measures the sustainability of construction projects, infrastructure, and buildings in a variety of key categories: energy, health and well-being, innovation, land use, materials, management, pollution, transport, waste, and water. Projects then receive ratings of either Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent, or Outstanding.”

This one new administrative facility in Britain, due to design and construction methods has been certified as Outstanding, the highest rating available according to the world’s leading sustainability assessment standard, BREEAM.

Flooding returns to southern Queensland, Australia

www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/10/flooding-returns-southern-queensland-australia-171018105240759.html

This time the flooding is more widespread.

David de Paoli, a chilli and avocado grower, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) that he suffered more than a million dollars in losses from the most recent storm.

"This is it, the last time we had that 350mm it was quick and fast and furious it caused structural damage and soil erosion, but this one's costing us our crop," he said.

"Feminine-named hurricanes (vs. masculine-named hurricanes) cause significantly more deaths, apparently because they lead to a lower perceived risk and consequently less preparedness,"
