Using Data to Tell More  and Fewer
This video is a resource for teaching the common core standard: Using Data to Tell How Many More or Less in a Category. It is often difficult for students to understand how to compare numbers. In this video students can learn how to use data on a picture graph to answer questions and determine which category has more and which has fewer. I created this video to correspond with my Using Data to Tell How Many More or Less packet. It is available at my Teachers Pay Teachers store if you would like to check it out.

Visit us at http://emergentorder.com and http://mercatus.org. THE ECONSTORY: Each year, our attention turns to the holidays... and to holiday consumer spending! We're told repeatedly that, because consumer spending is 70 percent of measured GDP, such spending is vital to economic growth and job creation. This must mean that savings, the opposite of consumption, is bad for growth. This view of macroeconomics was first popularly asserted by Thomas Malthus in 1820, nearly 200 years ago. Malthus believed recessions where caused by "underconsumption" because there was a "general glut" of goods unsold. To recover from a recession and grow, we needed to stop all the saving and spend more to buy up all the goods on store shelves. Savers are like the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge. If you want a happy holiday, you've got to clear those shelves and give people a reason to produce more and create jobs. Or so Malthus thought. John Maynard Keynes resurrected this approach and built on it with his influential "General Theory", which now underpins much of our government policy and public discussion of spending and economic growth. Keynesians believe aggregate spending drives the economy and savings is a "leak" out of the flow of spending. Indeed, this economic philosophy underpins many people's widespread obsession with retail sales each holiday season. Keynesian Macro Santa's sack is filled with spending. But there is another view on recessions, recoveries and growth. Classical and Austrian economists such as Adam Smith, Jean-Baptiste Say and Friedrich Hayek viewed savings as the vital lifeblood of economic growth and production as the means by which we live better and consume more in the long term. Our savings aren't simply taken out of the economic system, but become the source of capital that entrepreneurs use to create new goods and increase productivity. These economists believe this increased productivity is the key to a wealthier world. Before we consume, we must effectively produce what others value -- at prices that cover the costs. This fundamental idea, that our demand for goods is enabled and constituted by our supply of other goods came to be known as the "Law of Markets" and later "Say's Law". For classical and Austrian economics, recessions happen when producers make mistakes. They create goods that can't be sold at a profit. These malinvestments tend to cluster in a recession as a result of systematic problems, such as disruptions in the financial system that cause monetary "disequilibrium", often as the result of government interventions in the economy since they can be system-wide. Recovery and growth in the classical and Austrian view is driven by restructuring production so that entrepreneurs discover again the best -- i.e. the most valuable and sustainable -- ways to serve customers. That process is lead by new entrepreneurs and driven by savers who make capital available to fund new investments and new ventures. Sustainable saving and investment means creating more value for others while using fewer resources. This process lies at the core of healthy economic growth, including better job opportunities and a rising standard of living. If there are problems in the financial system such that our savings aren't effectively being invested but sitting idle in bank vaults, or people are hoarding cash under their mattress in distress, a classical approach seeks to get the root of that problem and resolve the monetary problems with monetary solutions such as increasing the money supply to meet demand and other approaches. Using up more real resources through additional consumption in such a case is a applying the wrong medicine to the disease. Consuming is our end goal, but producing value must be the means to that end. That is to say, Macro Santa's sack is filled with saving. So which approach do you think is right? We favor the Smith-Say-Hayek approach to economic growth. Share your thoughts!

Producing more food with less: Investing in resource-efficient technologies and practices
Globally, agrifood chains consume 30 percent of the world’s available energy – with more than 70 percent consumed beyond the farm gate. In the Mediterranean region, an area with limited land and water resources where agriculture plays a substantial role, the effectiveness and overall productivity of agrifood value chains will be increasingly dependent on the availability and efficient use of energy and natural resources. Achieving the transition to “resource-smart” food systems will require better policy-making as well as a collaborative and proactive multi-stakeholder approach. The video has been produced on the occasion of the Private Sector Forum on Food Security in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Region that was held in Barcelona on 5 and 6 May 2015 © FAO: http://www.fao.org

I'm studying medical chemistry and I have two questions to be answered. The first one is the question how would you probably solve the problem of still growing population? And the second question is very important is… Bill Nye: Will I marry you? So Martina, I'll get to your second question at the end. A growing population is a problem, but notice that the rate that the human population is growing is slowing down and this is almost certainly not so much a consequence of finite resources, which is what people like Malfis speculated late in the 18th century, it's not a question of finite resources it's apparently raising the standard of living of women and girls, people like you. As women and girls get better educated they have fewer kids and the kids they do have have more resources so they're better taken care of and they are more successful. So what we want to do, in my world over here in science education, is get women and girls around the world as educated as best we can as fast as we can so that there will be more resources per person in the coming years. The world's population is almost certainly going to go to nine billion humans, it very well may go to ten billion. And apparently the earth has enough resources for that and we just have to redistribute or reconfigure the way we use energy, water and the way we distribute information.

Ecodesign compact concept
Eastman is proud to have collaborated with cosmetics house Groupe Rocher on the design of a new "ecodesign compact" concept made entirely of Eastman materials. The compact features Eastman Trēva™ engineering bioplastic, a cellulose-based thermoplastic that offers both high performance and reduced environmental impact. Groupe Rocher shared its concept for an "ecodesign compact case," simplifying processing into a single step instead of the typical three-step process. The design also eliminates the metal hinge pins and uses plastic pins instead. "By eliminating metal and using fewer materials in the design, Groupe Rocher has created a compact case that requires fewer natural resources to produce, using less energy and eliminating secondary processing steps without compromising the packaging functionality and aesthetic brand codes," says Stéphane Tétaud, packaging makeup development. "This saves time and money during the manufacturing process and has the added benefit of taking a step toward recyclability."

Extra info & links below... Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sustain_Illustr Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sustainabilityillustrated Videos are created by Alexandre Magnin using years of experience drawing and working as a sustainability consultant with businesses and communities: http://www.amcreative.org In this video about social sustainability, I present a way to use the fundamental human needs we need to satisfy in order to make sustainable decisions and to design sustainability products and services. This is an interesting theory about human needs developed by Chilean economist Manfred Max-Neef. He published in 1991 a book called “Human scale development” demonstrating that human needs are finite and classifiable; there are 9 fundamental human needs that are constant through all human cultures and across historical time periods; and what changes is the ways these needs are satisfied. These 9 human needs are: subsistence (we need food, water, shelter), protection (a safe place to live, social security), participation (being part of decisions that affect our life), idleness (some free time, relaxing), affection (we need friends, love), understanding (learning, meditating), creation (cooking, designing, inventing), identity (a sense of belonging, knowing oneself) and freedom (being able to choose how we live our lives). It can be used for social sustainability because being sustainable is about being able to meet our needs within our ecological constraints. Manfred Max-Neef’s human needs can be very useful to find ways to satisfy needs using fewer resources. They provide a new lens and help us take another look at the system we are trying to change, which is crucial to stimulate innovation and to avoid superficial problem solving.

Do Early Childhood Programs Pay Off?
Are early childhood programs a good use of resources? In this series so far, we've talked about what childhood programs are, and whether they work. Now, we get to the question of whether or not they pay off. One of the reasons that life expectancy at birth has gone up so much in recent decades is because we’ve gotten better at taking care of childhood illnesses. When you prevent a child from dying, you add on, well, a lifetime of life. That makes a big difference in long-term statistics. There’s a similar effect when you make things better for a child. You can end up adding a lot of value. This also applies to early childhood interventions. If we do good for children, and the effects last a lifetime, we may be able to make a lot of the money that we spent investing pay off. Do early childhood interventions do that?

Cities and Climate Conference 2017
Visit http://ccc.ramses-cities.eu/ for more information on the Cities and Climate Conference, 19-21 September 2017, in Potsdam (Germany) Cities are one major focal point of human culture, the global population further consolidates into cities and in parallel they are major emitters and therefore a relevant component of the global climate problem. While cities are characterised by an overwhelming complexity they are also threatened by climate impacts. Thus, it is a challenge to develop cities into entities, which consume fewer resources, emit less CO2 and pollution, be more resilient to the impacts of climate change, and be more sustainable in general. However, there are potential synergies and conflicts in the objectives of mitigation, adaptation, and sustainability strategies. These are no more vivid than in urban areas, where they play out through land use, infrastructure systems, and the built environment. This conference will explore the latest advances in research and practice addressing climate change in cities, including issues of infrastructure, planning, governance, economics of adaptation, risk management, and their possible trade-offs and synergies with mitigation and sustainability objectives. Invited speakers will complement the conference program. "Cities and Climate Conference 2017” is the final conference of the RAMSES project and open to submissions from all relevant fields. RAMSES stands for Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for citiES. Science for cities in transition.

What are we trying to achieve? - Reversible Building Design
The EU funded project BAMB project brings 15 parties throughout Europe together for one mission – enabling a systemic shift in the building sector by creating circular solutions. BAMB is creating ways to increase the value of building materials. Dynamically and flexibly designed buildings can be incorporated into a circular economy – where materials in buildings sustain their value. That will lead to waste reduction and the use of fewer virgin resources. www.bamb2020.eu

Learn English: BY or WITH?
Do you learn WITH Emma or BY Emma? Both "by" and "with" can explain how we do something. But if you don't know which to use, don't worry... you will by the end of this video! I'll show you the key grammatical differences between these words, as well as what sentence structure to use with each, so that you can use 'by' and 'with' correctly in your spoken and written English. Once you understand the difference, I don't think you'll confuse them ever again! Test yourself at http://www.engvid.com/learn-english-by-or-with/ after the lesson to see if you can get 10/10! TRANSCRIPT Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's video I am going to answer your questions on: What is the difference between "by" and "with"? Many students make mistakes with "by" and "with", so in today's lesson I'm hoping to help you with this so you won't make so many mistakes and you'll understand: What are the differences between these two words? Okay, so to start with I have here some questions. I want you to think: Which ones are correct and which ones are not correct? I also want you to think which sentences... Why are they correct? Okay? So, why are they correct and why are they incorrect? So my first sentence: "I learn English by watching engVid." Compare this to: "I learn English with watching engVid." Which one do you think is the correct form? Do we use "by" or do we use "with"? Okay. If you said: "I learn English by watching engVid." you are correct. Okay? And I will explain why in the next part of this video. So: "I learn English with watching engVid." no, we don't use that. Okay, so what about the next two? "I write with a pen.", "I write by a pen." Which one do you think is the correct sentence, and which one is incorrect and why? Okay, if you said: "I write with a pen." you are correct. In this case this is the correct one. And: "I write by a pen." this is-enh-incorrect. So, before we talk about some of the differences, let's talk about the similarities. How are "by" and "with" the same? Well, they both answer the question: How? Okay? So they're both the answer to the question: How? How do you learn English? I learn English by watching engVid. I learn English by reading my dictionary every night. That's probably not a good idea, but I learn English by talking to people. Okay? So that's answering how you do something. Similarly with "with", it also answers the question: How? How do you write? Well, I write with a pen. How do you eat dinner? I eat dinner with a fork. Okay? Or I eat dinner with chopsticks. So they both answer the same question: How? But they are a little bit different, so let's look at these differences now. Okay, so let's look at some example sentences with "by". "I turn on the computer by pushing the on button." Okay? So this is, again, answering the question: How? How do you turn on the computer? Well, I turn on the computer by pushing the on button. I want you to take a moment to look at this sentence. What comes after "by"? We have here "pushing". "Pushing" is a verb. Okay? So I'm just going to underline this. So we often use... After "by" we often have a verb when we're explaining how something is done. Let's look at another example. "I keep healthy by exercising." So, again, after "by" you'll notice we have a verb: "exercise". Okay? In this case it's "exercising". So, one of the first things to notice is after "by" we often have a verb. I have here: "by verb", but that's not all. If you look at the verb, what form is the verb in? Well, take a moment. What do "pushing" and "exercising" have in common? They both end in "ing", so I'm going to write here: "ing". Okay? So we use "by", after "by" comes a verb, and then comes "ing". You know: How do you keep clean? I keep clean by showering. How do you study? I study by... Well, not hanging out with my friends, that would be terrible for studying. I study by reading over my notes. Okay? So after "by" we have the verb and "ing". So let's do one together. "I learned karate (or karate) by _________ YouTube." What do you think the verb would be? We could say: "by watch". Is that right? "...by watch YouTube"? No, we need the "ing", perfect. "I learned karate by watching YouTube." Okay? So, again, this is very useful because any time you're explaining how, if you have a verb and "by" then you can explain how you do something. Okay, now let's look at some of... Some more differences between "with" and "by". So before I begin teaching you more about "by" and "with", I just want to say that these are the general rules, and there are always times in English when rules are broken or when there are exceptions. Okay? And so these are the most basic of the rules with "by" and "with". Okay, so now let's look at when we're talking about a noun. We've just talked about using "by" with a verb ending in "ing" to answer how to do something. Well, we can also talk about how... When... By using a noun.

Wireless Range Extenders to Enlarge Your Wireless Network
Description: In this class Eli the Computer Guy explains the purpose of Wireless Range Extenders and how to use them to expand a wireless network. These easy to use, reasonably priced devices can turn a miserable wireless networking experience into a network that you clienst will be very satisfied with. Notes: Wireless Extenders act like Radio Repeaters. They connect to a Wireless Router/ Access Point and then rebroadcast the wireless connection to increase the range of the wireless network. Wireless Extenders are made by all major Wireless Equipment Vendors (Linksys, Dlink, NetGear, Belkin) Wireles Extenders are better then they used to be. Eli would suggest you use Wireless Extenders for residential and micro business clients (Offices of 5 people or fewer) Some Wireless Extenders include a Hardwired Ethernet port so that you can connect a computer/ device/ or networking switch to allow wired devices to communicate on the wireless network. Wireless Extenders use the same types of technologies as other Wireless Equipment: MIMO, A/B/G/N/AC/AD, Prioritization. So make sure the Extender you purchase uses the technologies that you feel are appropriate for the environment.

Lecture 25   Emissions and Sustainability Considerations
The word sustainability is derived from the word Sustain which can mean to “maintain", "support", or "endure”. For quite some time now sustainability has been used more in the sense of human sustainability on planet Earth with a very commonly quoted definition being “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” When we talk about sustainability we are not talking about reinventing the wheel, we are talking about improving and advancing our technology and developments so that our collective effects on earth are less, allowing humanity to continue to survive along with the other living things on earth. Being sustainable is about limiting your impact by using less energy, using every resource you need smarter and more efficiently, and preferably using and recycling resources that are in close proximity. Bioenergy has the potential to be a very helpful sustainable technology. Given how short human lives are, it’s hard to comprehend what life might be like in 200 years, but that is what sustainability demands. The city of Las Vegas has one of the most advanced water systems in the world. ~94 percent of the water that hits a drain anywhere in the Las Vegas metro area is recycled, cleaned to just-below drinking water standards, and returned to Lake Mead, the reservoir from which Las Vegas draws virtually all its drinking water. 94% was world class when this statistic came out and apparently it is even higher these days. At the country scale, Israel is the leading example and as of 2010, Israel leads the world in the proportion of water it recycles. As a country Israel recycles 80% of its wastewater, and 100% of the wastewater from the Tel Aviv metropolitan area is treated and reused as irrigation water for agriculture and public works. The cost of reclaimed water exceeds that of potable water in many regions of the world, where a fresh water supply is plentiful. As fresh water supplies become limited from distribution costs, increased population demands, or climate change reducing sources, it is expected that demand for this kind of water will continue to rise. Another interesting development is solar energy in Germany, a country without much gas, uranium deposits, and ironically sunny days. Germany is well known for cloudy days and long winters and yet in 2014 a record 50% of its power generation was solar and 90% of this solar power is from rooftop panels. They do not have a perfect system, but that level of solar power makes them far less reliant on power coming from other countries that is subject to geopolitical and weather related issues. The overall point here is that sustainable technologies are a lot more than just a way to reduce greenhouse gases, in many cases they are just a smarter way of doing business as more and more people continue to fight over fewer and fewer resources that due to climate change are getting harder and harder to access and predict. Sustainability and sustainable technologies are about doing more with less and using what is available in close proximity, they will absolutely play and increasing role in our lives in the coming decades, so it’s a topic worth thinking about. We know the earth isn’t flat anymore, but as early as 600 years ago that was a conventional belief. As a closing thought think about how we can use bioenergy to be more sustainable. It would be impossible for any of us as individuals to single-handedly stop climate change, but developments like bioenergy still have the potential to be far more sustainable than fossil fuels and that will have value regardless of the current climate conditions. Take a moment to think about how we could use biomass smarter and more efficiently to meet our needs while improving conditions on earth so that future generations will have a functioning planet.

Magdalena Cerda - Violence Intervention Study
When communities and police work together to deter urban violence, they can achieve better outcomes with fewer resources than when each works in isolation, a simulation model created by researchers at the UC Davis Violence Prevention Research Program, Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and the University at Albany has found. The study, which published online and appears in the January 2018 issue of the journal Epidemiology, is the first to estimate the relative impact of two leading approaches to prevent violence: targeted policing, whereby police increase patrols in neighborhood violent hot spots, and a community-based strategy known as Cure Violence, which uses “interrupters” and outreach workers to work with the friends and families of victims to identify, mediate and prevent further violence and retaliation.

Title: XGBoost: A Scalable Tree Boosting System Authors: Tianqi Chen, University of Washington Carlos Guestrin, University of Washington Abstract: Tree boosting is a highly effective and widely used machine learning method. In this paper, we describe a scalable end-to-end tree boosting system called XGBoost, which is used widely by data scientists to achieve state-of-the-art results on many machine learning challenges. We propose a novel sparsity-aware algorithm for sparse data and weighted quantile sketch for approximate tree learning. More importantly, we provide insights on cache access patterns, data compression and sharding to build a scalable tree boosting system. By combining these insights, XGBoost scales beyond billions of examples using far fewer resources than existing systems.

How our Food Choices Affect Climate Change, Resource Depletion and the Environment
Expert Panel Hosts: Hope Bohanec, Will Tuttle, David Robinson Simon (A podcast version of this video is available on iTunes.) • What we choose to eat is killing our planet and us, yet use of the word 'sustainable' is ubiquitous. Explanation of this incongruity lies in the fact that sustainability efforts are rarely positioned to include food choice in an accurate manner. This is due to a number of influencing cultural, social, and political factors that disable our food production systems and limit our base of knowledge--falsely guiding us on a path of pseudo sustainability, while we devastate the ecosystems that support us, cause mass extinctions, and generate narrowing time lines that will ultimately jeopardize our very survival as a civilization. This lecture is for anyone who cares about our future and that of other species. Categories of global depletion are detailed, widely held myths are debunked, critical disconnects are exposed, and profound solutions are offered.
Human Population Through Time
It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth’s resources, even as we approach 11 billion? #humans #population #humanevolution #overpopulation Download the video in HD: http://media.amnh.org/sciencebulletins/AMNH_HumanPopulation_DOWNLOAD.mp4 Related content: Population Connection http://worldpopulationhistory.org/map/1/mercator/1/0/25/ UN World Population Prospects https://esa.un.org/unpd/wpp/ Real-time population counter http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ NASA EarthData https://earthdata.nasa.gov NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu Video credits: Writer/Producer AMNH/L.

Who Should Govern Nature?
People often feel that the government should be in charge of natural resources because the environment belongs to us all and the government represents the people. While there's no single way for renewable resource ownership, people tend towards government control a little too often. It can hurt instead of help.

Reversing Climate Change Episode 52: Todd Myers, Environmental Director at Washington Policy Center
“The man who says it can’t be done should get out of the way of the woman who’s doing it. We focus all the time on politicians and what they’re going to do. Meanwhile, we’re becoming more energy efficient every day. We’re using fewer resources every day. We’re finding a way to do more with less, quietly, every day. But [the free market is] where the solutions are coming from.” Todd Myers is the Director of the Center for the Environment at the Washington Policy Center. One of the leading experts on free-market environmental policy, Todd has authored numerous studies on environment issues as well as the ground-breaking book Eco-Fads: How the Rise of Trendy Environmentalism Is Harming the Environment. His research on the failure of Washington’s green building mandate continues to receive national attention, and Todd has 20 years of experience in the environmental space. Today, Todd joins Ross, Christophe and Paul to discuss the role of the Washington Policy Center and the connection between economics and environmentalism. He offers insight around the shortcomings of both liberals and conservatives when it comes to climate policy, addressing the Democrats' failure to track results and the Republican messaging of denial. Todd shares his free market approach to carbon reduction, his take on the connection between poverty and deforestation, and his frustration with subsidies and policy incentives that don’t produce a significant reduction in CO2. Listen in to understand role of technology in helping us do more with less and learn how Todd is working to address climate change in a way that promotes prosperity and personal freedom.
