    Scientists say we should try to eat local, after finding that a FIFTH of all food-related greenhouse gas emissions come from transporting it around the world.  The amount of emissions linked to lorries, ships, trains and aeroplanes carting our grub around is seven times higher than experts previously estimated. A team from the University of Sydney studied 74 origin and destination countries, 37 economic sectors, international and domestic transport distances and food masses.  They calculated that the transportation of food causes three gigatonnes of the dangerous gasses to be released every year. This makes up six per cent of total human-produced greenhouse gas emissions. The scientists claim that if people only ate locally, we would save 0.38 gigatonnes in emissions - the equivalent of what would be created driving one tonne to the sun and back 6,000 times.

    Bear hunters had a good season in Pennsylvania. The state released the numbers for its most recent bear hunting season, revealing that it was one of the best seasons ever. The report also reveals that bears were harvested in the vast majority of counties across the state. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER Pennsylvania released the numbers for its most recent bear hunting season, revealing that it was one of the best seasons ever. (iStock) The Pennsylvania Game Commission announced that 3,659 bears were harvested by hunters last season. This makes last season the second-largest recorded since 2011, and the fifth-largest ever recorded in Pennsylvania. The state sold 205,812 bear licenses last year.

Best of all, the future continues to look bright for this resource, too." She continued, "Pennsylvania has been a popular bear hunting destination for years, and I don’t expect that to change...
                 Live from Music Row Thursday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. –  host Leahy welcomed all-star panelist Clint Brewer in studio to weigh in on recent Nashville transplant and potential GOP candidate Morgan Ortagus and others for Tennessee’s Fifth Congressional District. Leahy: It’s time for political junkies to hit the record button right now because this is just fascinating. It is what’s happening now in the newly drawn map for the Fifth Congressional District. And this is going to be, I think, a bellwether GOP primary to see who wins that nomination. Of course, just the backstory. Jim Cooper, who’s represented the Fifth Congressional District since I think, what, 1993 or 95, something like that. A long time.  Has announced he’s not going to run for reelection. The Tennessee General Assembly has redrawn the map that the governor is likely to sign that we think is going to survive court challenges. That’s going to change the Fifth Congressional District....
    SEQUOIA NATIONAL FOREST (AP) — Lightning-sparked wildfires killed thousands of giant sequoias this year, leading to a staggering two-year death toll that accounts for up to nearly a fifth of Earth’s largest trees, officials said Friday. Fires in Sequoia National Park and surrounding Sequoia National Forest tore through more than a third of groves in California and torched an estimated 2,261 to 3,637 sequoias, which are the largest trees by volume. READ MORE: UPDATE: San Francisco Mayor, Police Chief Promise Crackdown on Crime After Brazen Union Square SpreeNearby wildfires last year killed an unprecedented 7,500 to 10,400 giant sequoias that are only native in about 70 groves scattered along the western side of the Sierra Nevada range. Losses now account for 13% to 19% of the 75,000 sequoias greater than 4 feet (1.2 meters) in diameter. Blazes so intense to burn hot enough and high enough to kill so many giant sequoias — trees once considered nearly fire-proof — puts an exclamation point on climate change’s impact. A warming planet that has created hotter droughts combined with a century of fire...
    California workers filed fewer first-time claims for unemployment benefits during the most recent reporting week — yet workers in this state nevertheless accounted for a brutally high one-fifth of all the jobless claims filed in the United States, federal officials reported Thursday. The dreary reality: Layoffs continue to hound California workers to a much greater degree than the rest of the nation in the wake of wide-ranging business shutdowns ordered by state and local government agencies to combat the coronavirus. California’s workforce is just 7.2% of the United States labor force — yet during the week that ended on Oct. 24, California accounted for a whopping 20.3% of all the initial unemployment claims filed in the entire country. The only bright spots for the state’s weak economy:  Initial unemployment claims have decreased in California for three weeks in a row, and dropped by 7,800 during the week of Oct. 24, the U.S. Labor Department reported Thursday. An estimated 152,100 California workers filed initial claims for unemployment benefits last week, according to the Labor Department. Nationwide, 751,000 workers filed first-time jobless...
    PUBS, restaurants and cafes make up a fifth of all coronavirus transmissions, a health chief has warned MPs. Deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam today claimed that hospitality venues were responsible for 20 per cent of transmissions. 4Experts claim that pubs and restaurants account for a fifth of all Covid transmissionCredit: AFP or licensors It comes as one MP advised Londoners to stay away from pubs and restaurants this weekend after a spike in cases in the capital. Sian Berry, Green Party co-leader and London Mayor candidate said: “The news today that Public Health England has added London to its list of areas of concern, using estimates from other data, shows what a crucial time this is, and how all our actions can make a difference. “The 10pm closing time for bars and restaurants has already led to crowded scenes on public transport that worry me greatly. "My strong advice to Londoners today is to avoid going out in the next few days unless you have to, and find other ways to see friends and family. "If you have a...
    Microscopic fibres from blue denim jeans have been found in the Arctic for the first time, a new study claims.  Scientists discovered indigo denim microfibers in the North American waters, which are shed during laundering, enter waterways and can be ingested by fish.   Indigo denim fibres also make up almost a quarter of microfibres in the Great Lakes in and around the Canada-US border and  a fifth of clothing fragments in the the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the experts reveal.  Their experiments also showed about 50,000 microscopic denim fragments are shed in a single domestic wash, despite its reputation as a robust textile.  One practical solution to the problem would be for consumers to wash their jeans and other textiles more infrequently.  A previous study also found that clothing may be more prone to shredding microscopic plastic fibres into our waterways if it has been cut during manufacturing with scissors as opposed to lasers.     Images of an indigo denim fibre identified as cotton found in (C) Arctic sediments, (D) Great Lakes fish, and (E) wastewater treatment plants effluent and (F) a...
