New research from Berkeley Lab shows how an insect common to the Eastern U.S., the long-horned passalid beetle, has a hardy digestive tract with microbes to thank for turning its woody diet into energy, food for its young, and nutrients for forest growth. These insights into how the beetle and its distinct microbiome have co-evolved provide a roadmap for the production of affordable, nature-derived fuels and bioproducts.

Insects are critical contributors to ecosystem functioning, and like most living organisms their co-evolution with microbes has been essential to support these functions. While many insects are infamous for wreaking havoc wherever they roam, many thousands of species go quietly about their business, providing important services essential to healthy ecosystems using the innovative biochemistry of their microbiomes.

"Human rights complaint filed to UK government against ethical sugar association Bonsucro," 11 March 2019
Representatives of more than 700 Cambodian families who were violently displaced to make way for a sugar plantation have filed a formal complaint against Bonsucro, the sugar industry’s sustainability certification body, for breaches of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The complainants allege that Bonsucro failed to hold a member company, Mitr Phol, accountable after the Thai sugar giant grabbed their land and left them homeless and destitute.
Representatives of the families filed the complaint with the UK National Contact Point, a government body that handles human rights grievances against British multinational enterprises.

"Calling out the BS in BonSucro: Why Multistakeholders Initiatives Need to be Held Accountable for their Rights-Abusing Members," 11 March 2019
This week the world’s biggest sugar producers, traders and buyers are gathering at a luxury hotel in Bangkok for “Bonsucro Global Week” to celebrate their journey to social and environmental sustainability. 
Bonsucro, an industry-dominated multi-stakeholder initiative with a mission “to promote sustainable sugarcane production around the world,” is holding its annual conference in Thailand this year to showcase Thai sugar giant Mitr Phol as an exemplar of corporate responsibility.  On the agenda is a tour of one of Mitr Phol’s Thai operations for guests to “see first-hand sustainability in action.” 
What they won’t highlighting is Mitr Phol’s legacy of land grabbing and forced displacement in Cambodia. 
This hypocrisy has got to end.  That’s why we filed a complaint this week against Bonsucro with the UK National Contact Point for the OECD Guidelines on Multinational Enterprises. 
Ten years ago, more than 700 smallholder farming families were violently displaced and stripped of their land, homes and livelihoods t

Ik ontmoette iemand die bevriend is met Tommy Wieringa en Joris van Casteren en wandelingen maakt met een radiomaker van de VPRO, die zijn oude leraar Nederlands is. En hij woont ook nog vlakbij de beroemde Lauriergracht 37 uit de Max Havelaar. Ik begon me af te vragen of hij met al die literaire namen en feiten iets over zichzelf probeerde te zeggen (maar wat dan?) of dat hij zocht naar common ground om over te praten.

Successful copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) reactions may be achieved by several methods. In this paper, four synthetic protocols were performed for direct comparison of time required for the synthesis, yield, and purity of the 1H-1,2,3-triazole products. The methods with Cu(I) catalysts were conventional, microwave heating, solvent-free, and a method using glycerol solvent. The compounds synthesized in this paper were known non-fluorinated triazoles and new fluorinated triazoles. The results lead to the conclusion that the microwave method should be strongly considered for CuAAC syntheses.

Poster presentation proposal
What is our research about?
In this experiment, we have focused on the impact of the environmental resources on the population size of Rhyzoglyphus robini in order to find the most favorable condition among our sample environments. We hypothesized that the samples containing antibiotics, or antibiotics and Fungicide would constitute a more favorable environment for the Rhyzoglyphus robini population, due to less interspecies competition for the resources in those environments.
In fact, after thorough evaluation of the data gathered from two separate trial, each consisting of 18 samples, we managed to prove our hypothesis and observed the favorability of PDA+ Antibiotic environments for the maximal growth of Rhyzoglyphus robini populations.

Rhizoctonia solani is a global fungal plant pathogen that causes a variety of plant diseases and is detrimental to many commercial crops. R. solani can be suppressed by competitive or antagonistic microbes indigenous to some composts and soils. Anaerobic Soil Disinfestation (ASD) and application of vermicompost are two pesticide-free techniques used to control persistent soilborne plant pathogens. This is the first study to evaluate ASD in Vermont. We compared suppressiveness achieved by ASD to a positive control (vermicompost) and untreated soil to test the hypothesis that abundance and diversity of actinobacteria increase after ASD.
